A golden oldie, this one, dating back to 2004, but worth mentioning again just for the phrase "manly comfort":
A new product on the Japanese market has been designed for the single girl in need of some manly comfort while she sleeps.
The "Boyfriend Arm's Pillow" is shaped like a giant arm which will hold you all night without the need for the real thing.
The almost life-size boyfriend pillow is the product of the Japanese bed linen maker, Kameo Corp., located in the Japanese city of Fukuoka. The company already sold more than 1,000 pillows since its launch last year. It costs $80 dollars (8,500 yen) and is currently only sold in Japan on the Internet. [Go to MSNBC to see a picture of the Boyfriend Arm's Pillow in action]
We reckon the ladies of Japan would get a lot more manly comfort if they indulged in some of our love pillows - we've got the Love Heart Pleasure Pillow With Dildo that comes complete with a built in 5" inch dildo - position the pillow to take your weight and you'll soon be hitting all the right spots. The Single Dildo Pleasure Pillow sports a 7" dildo slap bang in the middle of its shiny black vinyl pillowness that also lets you put your full weight on the pillow to manouevre into whatever position pleases you most - it's not an inflatable pillow so it can withstand whatever you'd like to do with it.

Another great review from Orgasm Army!
"First time using a cock ring, and this ones a cracker. Got me harder, kept me harder, and lasted longer. My cock was so hard, I thought I was going to explode when I was strapped into the love ring, and when I did orgasm it felt like every drop of blood in my body was in my cock. Highly recommended."

Reuters reports: "A government worker has been sacked and another demoted following allegations they were involved in serious misconduct, including leaping naked from filing cabinets and having sex in office lavatories". Good grief. Mind you, the office has long been a place of double entendre, shameless flirting and other forms of sexual tension to help relieve the boredom of work. Unless, of course, you're David Brent.
Sex In The Office is one of our great erotic books which explores the forbidden lusts that abound in the work environment. When the photocopying and filing get too much for a girl to bear, there is always the stationary cupboard to sneak into with that guy who wears glasses in the accounts department…
And if you want to live out your office sex fantasies at home (which is a handy way of avoiding getting fired), we've also got the Flirt Office Fling Kit - Everyone likes to think their colleagues are at it behind their backs so here's a kit just for them.

Wired's sex columnist Regina Lynn has a big write-up about how videogame developers are starting to create more and more games about sex than can be played online and off. Cybersex is not only still popular, but it's getting ever more sophisticated too, with hundreds of games out there. It's exciting stuff. Still, there's nothing like the real thing, and we've got stacks of sex games of the more traditional face-to-face variety which are guaranteed to get you in the mood, whether you're with a partner or hoping to start something with someone else.
There's still a bit of a stigma for a lot of people about pleasuring themselves - when really it's not only the safest form of sex around, it's also great for reducing stress and keeping you healthy. The Jamaica Gleaner has a run-down of why masturbation is good for you and a bit about the history of why it's still considered taboo in some quarters. As they say:
Among couples, sex therapists are recommending mutual masturbation as harmless and invigorating, with partners watching each other masturbate or helping each other to masturbate.
Masturbation can also enhance sexual performance among couples because masturbation helps partners learn what excites each other.
Masturbation is recommended to men who suffer from premature ejaculation enabling them to learn to delay ejaculation.
Masturbation is made more pleasurable by the use of lubricants, sex toys including vibrators used by women and men use ribbed, silicon sleeves that fit over the penis.
Lovehoney can help out with lubricants and sex toys aplenty to make masturbation even better, whether with your partner or on your own. Check out our Fleshlights for boys and vibrators and dildos for girls
X-Men 3: The Final Stand is currently taking movie theatres all over the world by storm, and X-Men star Rebecca Romijn, who plays Mystique, is causing a bit of a furore herself.
Rebecca Romijn has told how she loves X-rated sex - and gets turned on by playing a dominatrix. The X-Men beauty - who plays mutant Mystique in the sci-fi series - also says she's happiest when she's stark naked. She is quoted in News of the World newspaper as saying: "I love to be nude and I love sex.
"Being a dominatrix in the bedroom, sex in cars and in public places all turn me on. And I love fantasizing about being naked on an island with lots of other naked people." (Read more on Starpulse News).
Now, if Rebecca was in need of some equipment to pursue her dominant ways, we have hundreds of brilliant bedroom bondage items she could use - everything from hand cuffs to blindfolds to whips, crops and paddles.

"Wasteful Brits threw away working household items worth more £5.6billion in the last year - including nearly two million sex toys.
More than 900,000 computers, upwards of 1.3million fridges and freezers, 2.6million sofas, in excess of 15million music CDs and even 200,000 iPods or MP3 players were binned, according to research.
Britons even dumped 1.8million tickets for live sporting and cultural events they never got round to seeing - the equivalent of 22 cup finals."
Blimey. Mind you, you wouldn't want to pass on a used sex toy, would you. Erk. Sadly The Daily Record doesn't go into the specifics of exactly what sort of toys are being thrown away. We're sure we can recommend plenty of sex toys that you'd want to hang on to…
