I can barely open any of my email boxes without getting someone sending me a link to Savage Love's newest column on sex toy recycling and etiquette. Why people thought I would be especially interested was because the question writer asked this, in part:
1) What is good sex-toy etiquette? Can you use sex toys in one relationship and then in the next one? Also, when I've been with women, it was NOT okay to reuse sex toys. They died with the relationship. Is it different with heteros?
2) Can you recycle sex toys with your recycling like you would other plastic products?
This 'closer than most' position will keep you riveted to your seats
It's not every day that you spit out your cornflakes because the Body & Soul section of the venerable Times is answering a question about artificial vaginas and Fleshlights. But it happened today.
A reader writes in to ask if her husband is losing interest in her because he's acquired an artifical vagina. Dr Thomas Stuttaford and Suzi Godson give their usual replies based on medical thinking (him) and sociological reasoning (her).
While it's a wonderful watershed moment to see the Fleshlight discussed so openly in the pages of a national newspaper, it's a bit weird that neither correspondent chooses to celebrate the husband's decision to buy a Fleshlight as simply a way to have a better wank - which, after all, is the point of a Fleshlight.
You may think the hardest part is finding someone to have a threesome with you and your lover, but you'll be surprised how complicated a threesome can actually be
It's like a dream come true - I come on to the site to take a look around for a little late self-Valentine's gifty and what do I see but a little icon telling me that my purchase will give me "ipoints". I tried not to get too excited until I took a closer look, but it's true - you can now earn points for all your Lovehoney purchases that will let you trade them in for various freebies.
If you've never stumbled across them before, ipoints is a big partnership between quite a few online vendors - you can earn points on any of the associated sites and use them on a wide selection of rewards. For example, spending 250 points will get you a 2 for 1 voucher at Twice the Spice or 2,576 points will get you a 12 month subscription to Glamour magazine. Lovehoney is offering 10 points for every £1 you spend on the site, so you can see it wouldn't take you long to rack up some great freebies - I've got my eye on the candy floss maker. At only 5,760 points needed, that shouldn't be too hard to do with the SinFive line calling my name…
If your lover struggles to hold his erections, a cock ring could make all the difference
Here's a novel idea for this Valentine's Day: take the strain off yourself and let your lover shave your pubic hair for you
If you're sensible like some people, you may have realized that a Valentine's on a Thursday is just not as much fun--you are aware that you have to get up for work the next day, so you have to keep things a little bit early and a little light on the alcohol (or you just don't fear being fired--I don't judge!)--or you may be even more sensible and realize that Valentine's is a holiday that should be celebrated all the way through the weekend (like some bloggers *cough*).
Order by 4 pm today and you'll still manage to get something a little naughtier for your Friday night…and Saturday morning…and Saturday night…and Sunday afternoon…
Over on the forums, the Naughty Knot is getting lots of praise as being the perfect gift (and how bold you would be to wear it! you sex kitten, you)--but there are plenty of gifties to choose from all around the site. Have a great weekend…
Throw your lover a party in her pants this Valentine's Day with some truly orgasmic knickers!
Time is fast running out for picking up a sexier gift for Valentine's Day (not that your plan to pick up flowers and a chocolate bar at the garage is bad, per se) - though you do have until 4.00 pm TODAY to order and still have it arrive in time. So let me help you out with a fast and furious list of gifts if you haven't been able to choose something.
For a more romantic evening, I adore the look of the above Bijoux Chocolate Lovers Pen Set. Not only does the feather quill have a gorgeous look to it, but I am also seeing potential to use it as a tickler on its own. Inspiration cards means you don't lose steam after writing your name on your lover's back.
Along the same romantic lines is this elegant Kama Sutra Weekend Gift Set. I am a long time lover of the Kama Sutra range and I would be over the moon to be gifted with this. The quality is always high and you don't have to worry about putting your lover off with something kitschy or tacky. And honestly, I would pay this price for the Honey Dust alone. I've had it and I can say it is just as silky smooth on the skin and sweetly tasty as you could ever want. The options for how to spend your Valentine's are nearly limitless with this set.
This one strays a little further into the erotic side of things, but if you're looking for a toy that will work for both of you, you can't do much better than the Synergy Pleasure System Vibrator. It benefits from being non-sex-toy looking, being mains rechargeable, having about a billion different tips and heads, and oscillating rather than vibrating (the sensation is less numbing than a full on vibration for some reason). I've got one of these in my bedside table and I recommend it highly.
