What is a ball gag? A gag is a type of bondage equipment designed to muffle the submissive partner during BDSM play. Although there are many different types of gags, ball gags are by far the most popular. While many couples are intimidated by gags at first, after trying it out they often find it adds an exciting edge to Dominance and submission play.
Ball gags come in several different styles and offer varying levels of restraint. It's important you choose the right gag for you as some are great for beginners, while others are best suited to advanced S&M explorers.

Revolutionary and unique are words that get thrown around a lot in the sex toy world, but every once and awhile we come across a product that uses a new method of stimulation that really is revolutionary. The Womanizer USB Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator (£129.99) is one of those products - it uses suction to take the clitoral stimulation to a new level.
But don't take our word for it! Below is a quote from our favourite user-uploaded review from the past month, which describes a Womanizer orgasm:
"I experienced one long continuous spasm, no pulsations, just my whole pelvic floor flipping out into one glorious sensation that seemed as if I was in freeze frame. It didn’t stop until I moved the device off my clitoris." Read the full review by BBWinch here.
We're giving BBWinch a £100 Lovehoney voucher for uploading our favourite review this month, and we've also chosen some runners up which you can see below.
Lots of couples want to explore new ways to excite their partner and stimulate each other's senses to their full potential during foreplay, but when you've already exhausted the tools Mother Nature gave you, it can be difficult to know what to move on to next.
Experimenting with sensory play such as erotic massage, temperature play and light spanking is a great way to instantly turn up the heat on your pleasure. If you're brand new to this kind of play, you might like to start with something a little less intimidating, like a feather tickler.
Unlike other types of sensory exploration which can require a certain level of skill or confidence, feather ticklers are the perfect balance between invitingly soft and excitingly new, whilst still being wonderfully easy to use.
Above: Not sure why you should try a feather tickler? Our resident bondage-expert, Jess Wilde, runs through her top 5 reasons to tickle as you tease in this video.
We're absolutely thrilled to announce that Celebrity Big Brother star Chloe Goodman will be the new face of Lovehoney lingerie.
The 21-year-old reality TV beauty rose to fame in 2014 when she appeared on MTV's Ex On The Beach. Since the show she has modelled for numerous tabloids and fashion magazines thanks to her versatile look and killer curves. She has even been Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's body double in the L'Oreal adverts!
Early in 2015, Chloe went into the Celebrity Big Brother house with the likes of Katie Hopkins, Perez Hilton and Katie Price. Despite being knocked out early on in the show, Chloe made a big impact and has been featured on ITV's This Morning and Channel 4 News in the weeks that followed.
Before she went into the house, Lovehoney met with Chloe for a top secret lingerie photo shoot. During the shoot we made an exclusive behind-the-scenes video and had a chat with the reality TV Star about what she loves most about our exciting new lingerie range.

Lovehoney's very own star in the making, Andrea Bartlett appeared on ITV's This Morning yesterday to have a giggle with Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley about her experiences working in Lovehoney's returns department.
Andrea appeared on the show's weekly 'Guest Who' section in which the This Morning presenters take out their ear pieces, put down their notes and forgo any directions from the floor manager in anticipation of their mystery guest. They then have two and a half minutes to grill their guest about what they do before the claxon.
The lovely Andrea had Phillip and Christine in fits of giggles by the end of the quick-fire question round which had Andrea explaining all of the weird and wonderful reasons that people return their unwanted sex toys to Lovehoney - highlighting our fantastic 365 day returns policy. You can watch the full clip here.
Andrea is the second Lovehoney employee to be featured on ITV's This Morning, joining Lovehoney TV's Annabelle Knight.
