• When I was a teenager, l convinced myself that I would only give up my virginity if my then boyfriend lavished me with Belgian chocolates, Ingueza roses, Krug champagne, a sexy babydoll from Agent Provocateur and an expensive weekend away. Hell, I would have even settled for a single bed in the local Travelodge; anything would of been better than 10 seconds of painful thrusting under a soggy tree in a graveyard on a miserable October night. Still, I'd take that over the new phenomenon that has been whipping thousands of frustrated American teens into a frenzy…

    As if it's not (physically) painful enough to pop your cherry in the first place, young adults in the States have been clambering over one another to take part in MTV's latest real life documentary: Virgin Diaries.

    For three intriguing and perhaps excruciating months, MTV has filmed 10 young adults as they prepare to lose their virginity and 'deal with the consequences.' The show is set to air every Sunday at 9pm, starting on 27 August as part of the MTV Sex Season.

    If trembling virgins getting it on sounds like your idea of hell, check out the frank and hilarious Sex: The Dirty Dozen, which apparently tackles sexually related taboos and features real-life diaries alongside interviews with celebs such as Pink, Artic Monkeys and ex-Busted star Matt Willis, along with the obligatory sexperts and a host of big-breasted glamour girls.

    Following on from our story about Zero Gravity Sex, a Dutch designer has created a deeply groovy gravity-free bed. It's a solid slab that literally hovers in mid air, free of all wires and strings - it's all done with magnets, y'know. So while it won't help you achieve those spectacular space sex positions, it would be a deeply shagadelic addition to any household. The only drawback is the price - a cool 1.2 million euros - and if you've got body jewelery - "Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic field between the bed and the floor. They could find their piercing suddenly tugged toward one of the magnets" reports Yahoo News.

    Waterproof Clitoral Hummer review"The Hummer is generally your run of the mill solid plastic vibe with a couple of excellent features. Number one, its waterproof - perfect for fun in the bath, pool etc. Secondly, you have the little nubbin at the top for those explosive moments - ideal for nipple stimulation, clitty and G-spot. Thirdly and my favourite feature is the sculptured 'cup'. This perfectly fits over your clit area for fantastic orgasms. "

    Condomi Stimulation Condoms (12 Pack) review"The condomi condoms brand we have found to be excellent, but my favourites are the stimulation. I have used most kinds of ribbed or textured condoms and found these the best. I've found with some that you don't feel any difference to your normal condom or worse they can make you sore. The nodules and ribs on these condoms drive your insides crazy, giving you a fantastic feeling and great orgasm. "

    Tantus Feeldoe Stout Vibrating  Double Dildo review"As a proud owner of the original-sized Feeldoe I've been interested in this beauty for ages.

I was almost shaking with excitement as I ordered it, I couldn't wait to be the (very) willing recipient of such a splendid piece of kit!
