Looks like there's going to be an attempt to get into the Guinness Book Of Records with the largest Strip Poker contest. Irish Bookmaker Paddy Power originally suggested the idea as a joke, but had nearly a hundred people enquire about taking part. "We're trying to investigate whether it's possible or whether we'll get put in prison for it," said a spokesman. (Spotted in All Headline News).
We've got several pack of cards to liven up a strip poker session - see our Kama Sutra Playing Cards and Nude Male Playing Cards.
And for those of you in Ireland, shop locally with Lovehoney Ireland, our sister site that can deliver all the usual Lovehoney goodies discreetly to your door and bill you direct in euros.
The New York Post give a thumbs up for Trojan's Vibrating Ring, saying it helps women get a lot more pleasure in the bedroom and works well with a condom too. Here's a bit of their in-depth review of the Trojan Vibrating Ring:
Only about 30 percent of women reach the big O during sexual intercourse, the majority requiring more creative forms of stimulation to climax.
Last fall, the company introduced the Vibrating Condom Ring. (Competitors like Durex have recently done the same.) It is a prophylactic-cum-sex toy devised for protection and to enhance his and especially her pleasure during the act of coupling.
As a self-proclaimed torchbearer of female libidinal gratification, I believe this revved-up condom represents a milestone in women's sexual history. Because Trojan is the country's leading condom manufacturer, the arrival of the Vibrating Condom Ring - now carried by mass retailers like Duane Reade, CVS and Kmart - means that a woman's coital satisfaction is no longer regarded by the mainstream as subordinate to a man's.
"Female sexuality is out in the open and the message is, 'Take control of your sexuality,'" said David A. Johnson, group product manager at Trojan, noting that more than 40 percent of condom buyers are women, a market that is expanding and one the company is specifically targeting. "Adding a vibrator to a condom is a way that both parties can achieve pleasure at the same time. It adds spice to the bedroom. It's a known fact that vibrators do help women achieve better and more powerful orgasms."
And if you don't believe them, you can head over to Orgasm Army
and read lots of reviews by sex toy users about the best vibrating rings
and all sorts of other fantastic gizmos to make your sex life go wild.
Or, if you're already convinced, you can choose from our big range of vibrating rings - and we've got Trojan condoms too, of course.
While Sex And The City may have come to an end over two years ago, tours of Carrie and Co's favourite haunts in New York City are still flourishing. New Zealand's Stuff magazine explains:
"We thought that this tour would have a life of three years after the show but it looks like it will be more," tour organiser Georgette Blau says.
About 900 people a week take the trip, she says, with New Yorkers making up about 10 per cent of that figure.
"New York is the show's fifth lady and people feel they need to see that." Another reason for the tour's survival, adds Blau, is withdrawal. "The sales almost tripled when the show ended. People are upset the show is gone," she says.
As the bus passes through West Village, we stop at the Pleasure Chest - a sex toy shop - where Charlotte bought her famed "rabbit" vibrator."
If you can't make it to New York, we can bring a little bit of Sex And The City to you - and the most pleasurable bits to boot. We have Charlotte's rabbit vibrator, natch, but we also have the Love Swing that Samantha used to for gravity-defying whoopee. Put the two together and it could mean stratospheric sex…
The Big Kick Off is not far away and Lovehoney is already getting all patriotic with our very own World Cup England Victory Vibe - Come On England! It's already been shown off in The Sun and it's guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of your partner whatever happens during the game. And with Rooney injured, we can do with all the smiles we can get…
But the England Victory Vibe is not the only World Cup goody that Ms Honey has stashed in her knickers - we've got Come On England G-Strings and Come On England Posing Pouches too, plus the Come On England Candy Bra for half time snacks. And if you're taking to the terraces, you can sport a St George England World Cup Glitter Cowboy Hat and a St George World Cup Feather Boa too, while keeping some World Cup Durex Condoms handily stashed in case you meet someone special during the game.
In a development that is positively almost too good to be true, we are giving away 10,000 free condoms in our all-new survey.
To celebrate National Condom Week and launch the He Says You Say condom awareness campaign, we're giving away 10,000 Durex Performa condoms - and we want to know what they do for your sex life!
The Performa condom contains a special lubricant in the end that helps to delay climax for men. Durex claims this helps prolong sexual excitement for longer-lasting love-making - but does it really? Help us find out!
Sorry, but this promotion has now closed.
It's not quite Halloween yet, but you can add some more fun to proceedings when you turn out the lights with our spectacular collection of Glow In The Dark sex toys. No doubt you've seen glow in the dark condoms - but have you experienced the ethereal majesty of Tongue Jewellery Glow Glitter? Have you written rude words across your loved one's backside with Glow In The Dark Body Paint? Have you got in the mood with Glow In The Dark Foreplay Dice or really got things going with a Glowing G-Spot Vibe? These are just a few of the Glow In The Dark goods we've got in stock - check out the complete collection for after dark amusement.
So we're in the middle of National Condom Week and Liz McClarnon out of Atomic Kitten has been fronting a new Durex campaign to promote safe sex. Brand Republic reports:
McClarnon will be appearing on 'GMTV' in the UK and 'The Late Late Show' in Ireland to promote the use of condoms and encourage young women to insist their partners wear protection, as part of the "He says, you say" summer-long campaign.
The drive, which launches today, will be supported on TheSite.org -- the YouthNet website, which offers information, advice and guidance for 16- to 24-year-olds.
There's also a very clever website that's been launched called HeSaysYouSay.co.uk where you can hear all the crappy excuses blokes try and come up with for not using a condom - and gives you pithy retorts to make sure he gets rubberised if he wants any fun. You'll never be a loss for words again!
And of course, Lovehoney can help out with all your condom needs - jiffies delivered to your door in a jiffy!
Political blog Wonkette got a bit of an eyeful when they went searching for Deputy White House chief of staff for policy Joel Kaplan on Google recently… and promptly discovered the range of fine penis pumps made by Dr Joel Kaplan instead, which are proudly for sale here on Lovehoney. There could be some interesting endorsement opportunities down the line…
This week is National Condom Week in the UK - time to treat yourself to a whole new ensemble of new condom styles and see what suits you, sir.
As if you needed any reminding, safe sex is the best sex - more fun, less stress, no unwanted pregnancies, no sexually transmitted diseases - brilliant!
Wear a condom everytime, learn clever tricks to put it on so you'll impress your partner and get them even more revved up than before, and have a go using different types of condoms - there are literally hundreds of makes, shapes and sizes available that can greatly enhance the amount of fun you have.
Make sure you always carry a stash with you too - you never know what might happen…
You could also memorise some of the scores of rhyming condom slogans you'll find here to make someone you fancy crack a smile - we're particularly fond of "You can't go wrong, if you shield your dong" and "Don't be a fool, vulcanize your tool", except the last one makes us think of Dr Spock which is just…wrong.
Naturally we have got a huge range of condoms available here at Lovehoney: make him last longer with delay condoms, have bigger thrills with contoured condoms or have a lip-smacking sex with our flavoured condoms.
Durex also do a whole range of sexcellent delay lubes and personal massagers in their Durex Play range if you want something extra to go alongside your collection of condoms.
And… you're not going to believe this but this week is not only National Condom Week but also National Balloon Week. We kid you not. Look, the BBC says so and everything. Clearly someone has got a sense of humour. It also means you can legitimately blow up condoms in bars and restaurants and let them off, which has to be a bonus. Just don't get carried away so you've got none left for later…
