Over my spring break, I had a friend visit me from the US - he was doing a big world tour and had just spent some time in Japan. Over wine one evening, we got to talking about the male masturbators that have been created over there - meant to be used once, and looking like a wee can… this is normal conversation, right?
I was all over curious about them, as I had yet to meet someone who had actually used one and I had to know how they stood up against the Fleshlight that everyone loves. I was just tickled pink when he went on and on about how fabulous it was. Big hand gestures, raised voice level of excitement - he asked if I wanted him to write a blog on it, he loved them so much. Instead, I present you with one of the glowing reviews coming out on the Tenga. And be sure to check out the entire range - they're all slightly different:
A big thank you to everyone who entered the Lovehoney Sex Tips Competition. As always we were astounded by the quality of the tips (or should that be the wondrous workings of your erotic imaginations?!)
Now that the overall winner has been notified (we'll be publishing their tip shortly) and all of the prizes sent, I thought I'd share some facts and stats on the competition. Take note, they may come in useful next time!
We received a total of 330 tips - 110 of which received prizes (not a bad ratio I think you'll agree.)
The most common reason for rejecting a tip was that the entrant had forgotten to add their name and / or postal address to their Orgasm Army record. With so many tips to choose from it was impossible to email each person to check their addresses, plus we had stated in the rules that we required full details. Sorry chaps - no address, no prize!
Ice, hot drinks and mint of any description proved a bit of a turn-off this time, too. Yes they all work, but when 51 people suggest the same thing I'm afraid it loses its edge! Ditto pearl hand jobs, alphabet oral or getting your partner drunk!
That said, there were plenty of tips that left me hot under the collar, so much so in fact that a few of them will be featured here in the future. They're so good, it would be rude not to share!
One word… absolutely sensational!

Tracey Cox's Supersex range of vibrators has just gotten even sexier!
The new Tracey Cox Supersex Massager is a quiet, powerful, multispeed vibrator – the perfect foreplay sex toy for couples. It's waterproof, too, which makes it an ideal companion for the shower!
"Use the Supersex Massager directly on the clitoris or your most sensitive parts but if that feels too intense, tease around the sides," says Tracey. "Orgasms with a strong vibrator happen quickly, so stop and start to make the experience last longer."
As a special introductory offer we're giving away Tracey Cox Supersex Mint Tingle Silicone Lube worth £7.99 free with every Supersex Massager – which adds extra toe-curling sensations to your sexy fun.
Slim, super-strong and very long… it can only be the new Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator! Small enough to take anywhere but packing a punch way above its weight, this stylish and discreet mini vibe is the finest bullet yet.
"Because bullets are small, they're ideal for multiple stimulation," says Tracey. "Try holding one alongside your partner's tongue during oral sex or on the clitoris while he uses his fingers. The adventurous will also find it perfect for wicked teasing in all sorts of exciting places…"
And for a limited period we're giving away free Tracey Cox Supersex Love Lube worth £4.99 with ever Supersex Bullet Vibrator.

So I know what you're thinking. "Boy, McBirdie, I bet your evenings are glamorous affairs, full of excitement, prestige, and sexiness - you are, after all, a Sex Toys Blogger, and they are by nature a glamorous peoples."
Peeps, I'm afraid I'm going to have to disappoint you. In reality, I have spent the past couple of hours or so squishing the unbelievably soft balls attached to the Japanese Motorised Control Cock and seeing how well he wears a French Tickler. I can tell you that he wears it quite handsomely - like he is proud of his wee spiky cap - but also that if you're going to enjoy him, hat and all, you better do it within the first hour as he starts to eat through the condom bottom of the Tickler. Silicone toys, dontchaknow. But now I can tell you how many different ways you can use the Control Cock, so the evening was well spent.
Ever wonder how Black Lace started out? As part of their fifteenth anniversary, they're reprinting some of the most popular books in the series - including the very first, Fredrica Alleyn's Cassandra's Conflict.

The story so far: Cassandra's playing a game, and the golden rule is that she's not allowed to come. Easier said than done when you're subjected to this kind of erotic torture:
Sex, drugs… but no rock'n'roll. Still, there's more than enough of the first two to satisfy anyone's tastes in Fredrica Alleyn's Cassandra's Conflict, the Lovehoney Erotic Book Club Book of the Month for April - and the first Black Lace book ever published!

A house in Hampstead. Present-day. Behind a facade of cultured respectability lies a world of decadent indulgence and dark eroticism.
Cassandra's sheltered life is transformed when she gets employed as governess to the Baron's children. He draws her into games where lust can feed on the erotic charge of submission. Games where only he knows the rules and where unusual pleasures can flourish.
Share your thoughts on Cassandra's Conflict in the Erotic Book Club Discussion Forum - there'll be lots of lively debate.
Don't forget: you'll get a free bottle of Original Supersex Love Lube 150ml, worth £4.99, when you buy the book during April.
