Well, well, well - turns out masturbation is good for you. Who'd thought it. From ProgressiveU:
A study suggests frequent masturbation by men in their 20s provides protection against prostate cancer later in life.
Scientists in Australia determined that men in their 20s who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop aggressive prostate cancer later in life.
The study suggests ejaculation by means of masturbation provides better protection than ejaculation in sexual intercourse because men can pick up infections from intercourse that actually increase the risk of getting prostate cancer.

We're advertising what could be the most unusual job ever. The company is searching for a sexually active couple who will be prepared to test a new pill designed to change the taste of semen.
The pill, which is taken as a twice-a-day for 30 days, claims to mask the traditionally salty taste of male ejaculate with a refreshing apple-like flavour. Successful applicants will take the pill for 30 days and will use an online blog to provide a blow-by-blow account of how the taste of their partner's sexual fluid changes.
"A payment is offered," says Lovehoney test organiser Ali Carnegie, "But this is really a job that people should do for love rather than money."
Couples who are interested in the position can apply by completing the Sperm Tester application form on the Lovehoney Web site.
The test product is 100% vegetarian. Both straight and gay couples can apply.
More and more UK women are interested in porn, according to a recent survey. We're big fans of Anna Span, who specialises in porn made by women for women. Over in Canada, Josey Vogels recently attended the very first Feminist Porn Awards, and gives a detailed round up of what happened. But first - what is feminist porn?
According to the founders of the awards, Good For Her, a women-oriented sex shop in Toronto (goodforher.com), the winning films had to meet three criteria: a) they had to show genuine female pleasure (in other words, no
faking it); b) they had to be directed or produced by a woman; and c) they had to "expand the range of female sexual expression currently seen in porn."
Oh, and they had to be hot. [read more]
So there you go - you can browse our collection of Anna Span DVDs to see if they match up to what's required.

And New Zealanders wonder why some people think they're weird…
Live "sex shows" of bulls mounting a simulated cow have become a big attraction at an agricultural exhibition taking place in New Zealand.
The fake "cow" -- a small go-kart with natural cowhide on its roof -- was developed by Ambreed New Zealand Ltd. to collect semen from bulls more safely and efficiently and improve artificial breeding of cows. [Chron.com]
This would probably be the point at which to say: holy cow!
Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"I can not find the words to begin to describe how it felt but I will do my best. It was the most wonderful feeling that I had felt for years! I had an instant full and total stonk on now! I began to thrust in and out and thought Oh my God! It was just wonderful! The cries of pleasure that came out of my mouth! I had hoped it would be good but nothing could prepare me for just how good it was…"

The Hitachi Magic Wand is one of the best-selling personal massagers in the USA, and here at Lovehoney we've been busy bringing its soothing buzz power to the UK. The Hitachi Magic Wand is sold as a "stress reliever" in the USA, but it's actually spectacularly good for clitoral stimulation and generally getting you off. It doesn't look like a vibrator either, so it's pretty discreet.
Besides the basic Hitachi Magic Wand, however, there's also a raft of fantastic Hitachi Magic Wand attachments that will let you extend the pleasure of your Magic Wand even further. Amongst our nine different attachments, there's the G-Spotter Wand attachment which will make you go wild when you hit the G-Spot, the Pleasure Dome for even more varied stimulation and the Magic Wand Pleasure Beads Anal Attachment for back door fun too.

"People will be having sex with robots within 5 years". So says no less venerable a source than The Times newspaper, which ran its future of robot sex article a couple of days ago and which has subsequently has been spreading like wildfire around the internet.
