I'm sure that hardened Sex And The City followers will already know this, but it was news to us - it turns out that Mr Big has a name.
It's John James Preston.
It was only in the last episode of the Sex And The City TV series that viewers found out that Mr Big had a first name, so it's something of a shock to discover that not only has he got a surname, he's got a middle name in between as well.
We're not sure what bearing this information is going to have on Carrie's relationship with Mr Big - or the big part of him. And whether she'll be consigning her Sex And The City Rabbit Vibrator to the attic because Mr Big is providing for all her needs.
Somehow, we doubt it…
What's the most interesting part…
1. Reading about what US comedy website Cracked considers to be the 25 Most Disturbing Sex Toys
2. Seeing how many of them are sold at Lovehoney
3. Realizing how many of them I actually own?
I don't know, perhaps I've just gotten jaded, but I don't see how a vibrating tongue can be disturbing - but then I spend most of my time pondering what they can do with such a toy to make it more tongue-like, so perhaps I have the wrong mind-set. I will say, though, that at least a few of the toys listed in their article are highly rated, like the I Rub My Duckie vibrator.
I'm not sure where one can go about buying the Orca dildo, but perhaps if you dropped the buyers at Lovehoney an email…? I won't tell. However, if you saw something on the list that caught your eye, here is where you can find some of the Lovehoney equivalents:
Lovehoney Head Buyer and star of Sex Toys TV, Bonny Hall, has recently been interviewed by retail careers and recruitment magazine, The Appointment, for its Careers Centre section.
The interviewer's eyes were the size of saucers when he was given a tour of our magnificent warehouse full of choice goodies.
You can read the full interview here.
Just when I thought I would sneak off Lovehoney without needing to buy anything, I stumble across this gorgeous little guy hiding out in the New Vibes section.
I just can't say no to something that looks to be an improvement on classic vibes, and this definitely looks to be.
ToyJoy is one of the best companies out there and you always know you're going to get quality toys with them, so half the sales pitch is done for me before I even look at the features - but even if it wasn't, just look at him!
Two probes in addition to the main shaft mean you're getting vibrations everywhere you're going to want them, it's submersible (great for those of us who like to disappear into a Lush bath for an hour or a week), and the colours are so gorgeous I'm thinking it will have to be left out for everyone to see.
One review has already come in and it looks like a winner:
It's a great colour, orange but with a hint of pink through it and it looks fab. It's perfectly shaped to hit all the spots at once, easy push button on the base with four different functions (continuous buzz, fast on/off buzz, slow on/off buzz and buzzes in threes.) Great!!! It's waterproof (added bonus) and pretty quiet! The clit stimulator hits the right spot and the anal probe can be inserted or left ] so it just tickles the end. The vibe can also be switched around and I found the vaginal bit was also great for anal!! Really soft material, well made, but just the right amount of firmness! Only takes two batteries too! Pretty easy to clean as well! This is recommended!
If you were wanting to add a little Easter treat to your basket, this might be the one for you. I know I'm going to go and add it to my wish list now.
The long wait is nearly over! "Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha are back - don't miss the movie debut of Manhattan's fabulous foursome as they continue their quest for true love, hot sex and the perfect pair of slingbacks."
The Sex And The City Movie will hit UK cinema screens on 30 May. We're wondering whether women will turn up waving their Sex And The City Rabbit Vibrators in solidarity. Until the big day, here are the best Sex And The City movie Web sites to give you a fix of Carrie and co…

Dear Sirs, Madam,
Let me send you following file with an idea of a special funny article. It could be suitable for example for lonely traveller :-) Best regards,
Thank you for the suggestion Martin. Unfortunately, life has already imitated art in the form of the Travel Honeypot Vagina Masturbator and sundry other male masturbators.
We're always keen to hear new ideas for sex toys, though you might what to pay a little more attention to detail with your designs, such as whether or not the user is going to slice his knackers off while he's pounding away.
BTW, we'll be running out Design A Sex Toy competition again soon. Keep an eye on the blog for details…
Getting a link from Reddit or dugged by Digg is the stuff of many a blogger's or webmaster's dream. These social news sites have the power to deliver a torrent of traffic to anyone who creates content good enough to be liked and linked by users.
It just so happened that last week I uploaded a post called Cock Sucking Customer Care In Action to the Lovehoney Sex Toys blog.
The post features a genuine (and rather abusive) e-mail from a customer and my almost-straight-laced but definitely helpful response.
Someone added a link to the post on Reddit and over the next few days the sex toys blog experienced a big spike in traffic. Hurrah! Lots more people finding out about Lovehoney! Reading our blog! Looking at our sex toys! Buying our sex toys!
At least, that's the theory.
But a quick probe into our Analytics a couple of days after the spike provides some sobering evidence of the Reddit Effect and should give Webmasters cause to question the value of focusing efforts on (and stressing over) obtaining links from Reddit or Digg.
