With Valentine's Day, you can go a couple of different ways - if you are part of a couple, you can go romantic with gifts of candy, flowers, and intimate caresses or you can go full-on erotic with fearsome new toys set to test the bounds of your trust in your partner, the strength of your bed frame, and the integrity of your house's wiring system. An interesting idea, though, might be to do… both.
I'm not normally all that excited about gift sets - they are often stuffed with things that you don't really want so that the shops can bulk it up a little and get rid of the tat that doesn't sell on its own. But I have rather fallen in love with this set from Pipedream. I find it appealing both because it covers such a nice spectrum of naughty and nice toys, and because it really is a deal.

Stuck for cash but still want to give your lover a night to remember? A sexy massage will hit the spot…
Oh, it's time for men (and women) who love the look of a woman in a high heel to rejoice - the BBC is saying that wearing heels might improve our sex lives. Here I've always thought it was enough that wearing heels made me feel sexier and made me sexier to men, but an Italian urologist who likes her own heels is saying that that isn't the end of it. Apparently, wearing heels helps to strengthen our pelvic floor muscles (those are the ones that contract when you're having an orgasm - you know, the ones I'm always on about the need to strengthen with kegel exercises). Even better, though, is that this benefit seems to come from wearing a nice two inch heel that is more work-friendly than a stiletto:

From 2007's irritating Mitchell and Web Mac adverts to this recent profile of a typical Mac
fanboy user from Advertising Age, there's been a lot of hoopla and chin-stroking about the difference between Mac and Windows users.
Mac users, we are told, are cool and sophisticated. Windows users, well, aren't.
But here at Lovehoney we've been thinking that there must be more interesting differences between the operating system sexes than that.
What, for example, does your choice of operating system say about your sex life? Are Mac users having more sex than Windows users? Are they having different kinds of sex? We need to know.
And know we shall. The Lovehoney Web site received nearly 1 million unique visits in December 2007 and by analysing the site's Web logs and analytics information we can start to answer these vital sex questions.
So please join us as we lift our analytics skirts in the first of a regular series, and let you take a peak at the sexual differences between Mac and Windows users…

In Cosmo's article on the Hottest Sex Trends, right up at Number Two was trying out a top notch toy. Wasting no time on cheapo vibrators that you get from shady shops with dust on the counters and a whole rack of inflatable dolls, the surest way to rev up your sex life is to try out a post toy that you'll love using, and possibly sharing.
"In recent years, sex-toy sites have seen a rapid increase in sales, with chicks being the majority of their clientele. So is it any wonder that adult toys have gone designer? "Style-savvy women weren't satisfied with the cheap, tastelessly packaged vibrators on the market," says Dana B. Myers, the 29-year-old co-founder of bootyparlor.com, an American website that sells posh playthings like the Swarovski crystal-encrusted (they're on the handle) Minx vibrator. "As a result, vibrators have undergone an extreme makeover. There has been a growing trend of 'sexual couture' - fashionable products meant to be played with and admired."
