• Ever heard of Alfred Kinsey? He was America's leading sexologist, (he practically invented the science), and his books on human sexual preferences have basically shaped how we think about sex ever since. On this webpage there's a complete alphabetical list of sexual preferences and fetishes - find out how many of them you've got! It's interesting how a few decades ago some of these things were considered utterly perverted, but now barely raise an eyebrow. That's progress for you.

    Another great review from Orgasm Army!

    Bedside Kama Sutra review"Great fun, it takes itself a bit seriously but that just adds to the comedy of the situation, especially when halfway though you drop the book, and then the hilarity and giggling as someone tries to pick it up without having a hernia. It has plenty of easy positions for those of us who are not as flexible as we thought and more advanced positions to, definately good fun and for the price good value too!
    I also recomend the Frenzy or Canopy of Stars positions, damn good! (Also beware when asking your partner if they want to do 'the Cow' - they might take offence!)"

    Candy Cock Ring review"These are brilliant, there are three in a pack and each one has few enough candy beads that they can be eaten in one sitting.

    I enjoyed eating them off him and he certainly took great pleasure in my mastication. Unlike the Candy Bras and G-Strings there seemed to be nothing beneficial in wearing the cock ring in itself, however I wouldn’t normally expect that in what is basically just a fun novelty…"

    AskMen.com has a step by step guide to "jelqing", which is apparently a do-it-yourself technique for enlarging your penis. Here's what they suggest:

    Here's how to "jelq" your penis -- if you have the patience, try it out and see if this method of "natural" penis enlargement works for you:

    * Wrap a towel soaked in hot water around your penis. Keep it on for five minutes.

    * Using lubricant, massage your penis until it is semi-erect.

    * Make an "OK" sign with your thumb and index finger, firmly grip the base of your penis and slide your hand to the head. Continue this motion for 30 to 60 minutes.

    * Wrap your penis in a hot towel for another five minutes.

    * Repeat this process at least five times a week.

    Yeah right - like anyone's going to go through all that. Plus it sounds deeply unfun. Whereas using one of our penis pumps is much more fun and produces great results quickly. Take a look at our beginner's guide to penis pumps for more info about the best pump for you.

    The Scotsman reports that Jonathan Ross' questioning of Conservative leader David Cameron about whether he had sexual fantasies about Margaret Thatcher will not be repeated on the BBC. Which is probably a relief for all concerned. Far better on the fantasy front is our stack of erotic stories - not a blue rinse or iron-clad handbag in sight…

    God bless Gordon Brown! Safe sex got a boost on 1 July when the Chancellor of the Exchequer reduced the rate of VAT on condoms. We cut our condom prices immediately to let customers enjoy the benefit of a rare New Labour tax cut.

    On 1 July, VAT on condoms was reduced from 17.5% to 5%, so the retail price of condoms online and in the high street should come down by more than 10%. But watch out - not many online retailers have responded by reducing prices.

    Lovehoney sells condoms from major manufacturers including Durex, Mates and Trojan.

    A pack of Durex Performa delay condoms now costs just £7.09 on Lovehoney, a saving of £1.84 on the new Durex recommend retail price of £8.93.

    Customers can requested a free Durex condom sample from the Lovehoney Web site.

    We're still trying to cheer ourselves up after Saturday's nightmare with our World Cup sex toys - but there's a new study by boffins that reckons people get more excitement from watching football than having sex. Certainly we nearly had a heart attack on Saturday night…

    Soccer fan Henrik Gerdin is a contented man. His team scored a late equaliser, he won a bet and his heart rate officially rose above orgasm level.

    The 25-year-old Swede was part of an ongoing World Cup experiment by England's Loughborough University to test the effect that placing a bet on a game of soccer has on fans' heart rates.

    "The heart rates that we have recorded throughout the first stage of the study are in line with those experienced by an individual reaching sexual climax, and in some cases greater than that," said Loughborough's Prof Ron Maughan, whose research expertise includes nutrition of exercise performance.

    Imagine a porn film made with lego. Actually, don't bother - just go and visit it.

    A recent article in the Detroit News describes how erotic fiction, very much the preserve of women, is becoming far more explicit

    Once banished to an underground following, erotica - a rather girly term for written porn - has finally hit the big time.

    "It used to be with romances they would kiss and go into the bedroom, and then it would then be the next morning and they'd be eating eggs," said Jesse Petersen, who co-wrote the erotica book "Scandalous" under the name "Jenna Petersen." "But more and more, readers want to read about what really goes on in the bedroom when the door closes."

    Sure, women have devoured for decades those Fabio-inspired summer romance reads featuring deep sighs, heaving bosoms, faces "flushed with desire." But this latest line doesn't shy away from explicit details and X-rated dirty talk - in fact, it revels in it.

    "If it creates an image and you are aroused, it works," said Lisa Wade, 50, who enjoys reading this type of fiction. "It's like foreplay. And if the writer can create an image in our head, it's effective."

    The power of writing is far more enticing for women when it comes to sex, experts say. From fervent love letters to X-rated e-books, many women are more comfortable creating their own sexual fantasy than having it in living, close-up color in porn flicks or raunchy magazines. And it's not exploitative to women - just words on a page. [read more]
