We all go through phases of not wanting sex from time to time. But for many, this lack of libido can put a real strain on their relationships, causing some people to go to extreme lengths to boost their sex drive.
But what if we told you that the key to a better sex life wasn't a superfood or pill promising mind-blowing orgasms? In fact it's much more simple than that.
According to a new study, simply having an hour extra of sleep can boost a woman's sex drive by 14%.
That might not sound like much to those with a heightened sex drive, but for those needing an extra boost to get them going it can make a lot of difference.
Considering it is currently National Bed Month, there is no time like the present to catch up on your precious sleep. We're all losing an hour of sleep this weekend due to the clocks going forward, but it's important for your sex life that you catch up. A scientist said so!
So put down you smartphones, turn off your TV and get all tucked in - it's probably the sexiest thing you could do.
Since we launched our own sexy lingerie brand last October, the Lovehoney crotchless knicker collection has been oh-so-popular, and we couldn't be happier that you like our designs.
Originally available in a limited size range of 8 - 14, we couldn't ignore that there were lots of loyal Lovehoney customers who weren't being catered to.
You kept asking us to extend the sizes available, and we're happy to oblige. All Lovehoney knickers now available in sizes 16 and 18 too!
Have a request? Pop onto our forum and put it in the Pander to Me thread and your luck may just be in.

It's a well known fact that Lovehoney customers are the best around, and I love sharing with you the nice comments our team receive daily, as well as the occasional hilarious drawings we get in the post.
Just last week, Customer Care advisor Chelsea (left) was manning the Live Chat function when she received a veritable Lovehoney love poem from a kind customer:
Lovehoney.com is THE one
Clothes to please and some to tease
Silks and satins I don't look fat in
Frills and bows, for anything goes
Men and women both enjoy a sexy Lovehoney toy
Thank you Lovehoney
You can have my money
You give me pleasure
For my leisure
You help me feel in the mood
All is fun and never crude.
Of course, Chelsea couldn't not return the favour… Read on below for her hilarious response!
Nothing beats sexy lingerie when it comes to bedroom seduction, but after the first wear it's easy to throw everything in one drawer and forget about it, only to be met with a bundle of tangled stockings and bras next time you want to dress up.
If you've taken the time to hand wash and dry your sexy underwear, it's a good idea to spend an extra couple of minutes putting it away properly, too.
In fact, you can extend the life of your lingerie with a few tweaks to how you store your pieces.
Our lingerie expert Gemma has outlined some easy ways to sort and store your lingerie below so you can keep your favourite pieces ready for action at a moment's notice!
Looking for something to bring a bit more fun into the bedroom? Missionary position isn't quite cutting it anymore? We have the answer!
Today marks the start of the 'Lovehoney Sex Position of the Month' series.
This month's position will test both your balance and flexibility (so remember to do your stretches first)… say hello to Extended Pleasure.
How to achieve Extended Pleasure:
The man and woman stand facing each other whilst the woman raises one leg over her partner's shoulder.
The woman leans back slightly and holds on to her partner's arms or waist for support. He holds her leg and waist in position.
Let us know how you get on with this month's position in the comments section below.
Every March the Lovehoney offices are inundated with hundreds of sexy lingerie catalogues showcasing new styles and upcoming trends. There are literally mounds of them stacked on my desk - hard life, right?
Spring is when you'll see lots of new collections from established brands being introduced into Lovehoney's lingerie selection, and first up is Dreamgirl with some gorgeous purples, deep blues and, of course, some classic black sets.
This season we're loving seductive eyelash lace, touchable satin and see through polkadot mesh. I've picked out my absolute favourites below, but you can see the full range here
What do you think of the new offerings from Dreamgirl? Don't forget to tell me which style is your favourite in the comments section!
Valentine's Day last month looks to have been the sexiest day of the year by far, judging by the user photos uploaded during the second half of February! Clearly lots of you enjoyed your Valentine's sexy lingerie and we're delighted you took the time to upload your best photos to be entered in our Model of the Month competition.
That's right, every month we choose our favourite user-uploaded photo showing off something from our range of sexy lingerie to win a massive £100 Lovehoney voucher.
Model of the Month
There were so many amazing entries in February that it was difficult to choose a winner, but after much deliberation we settled on Skitty's beautiful photo featuring the Lovehoney Love Me Lace Chemise Set Black (£10.00) and Lovehoney Lace & Satin Blindfold (£6.99).
We loved the contrast between the black lace lingerie, Skitty's glowing complexion and the carefully-selected props. The addition of the eye mask is a wonderful way of ensuring anonymity without taking attention away from the gorgeous model.
A bunch of fabric flowers and rose petals tie the whole shot together, giving it a romantic feel.
Fancy your chances in our monthly modelling competition? It couldn't be easier to enter. First, read our photo guidelines to get an idea of what kind of pictures we allow on the site. When you're happy with your shots, upload them to Lovehoney along with the name of the product you're modelling, and you'll be automatically entered to win.
As there were so many amazing entries this month, we've selected 3 runners up to receive Oh! Points. Read on below to see if you were one of the lucky ones!
It's March already, which means it's time to announce the latest winner of our monthly review competition! Everyone who submitted a product review during February was eligible to win a £100 Lovehoney voucher, and this month's prize goes to Greenwine for their review of the Lovehoney Adore Me Lace & Microfibre Chemise Set.
Greenwine did a wonderful job of describing the fit, feel and quality of this lingerie set, while offering constructive feedback on how it could be even better:
"Nothing less than a transformation from happy housewife to 50's vamp! I love the way it clings to and accentuates curves and the material is strong enough to be gently supportive. The back straps are a very nice touch - a quick bit of titivation and hey presto, no back fat."
"One potential improvement - add another pair of loops so the chemise can take six suspender straps. But that's maybe an unfair criticism - this is pretty, sexy, curvaceously flattering and wild-romance-inducing!"
Check out the full review by Greenwine, and read on below for this month's runners up:
