If the sound of casual, no-strings-attached hanky panky sounds right up your street then you may have already considered getting a friend with benefits (FWB).
Some may even consider an open relationship in which both partners, despite loving each other, are free to roam.
But can you really have the best of both worlds or does it always end in tears?
Let us know what you think about FWBs and open relationships in our new survey.
You'll also be in with the chance of winning these fabulous prizes:

They're kind of like stockings…but for your whole body. Traditionally made from sheer fabric, bodystockings feature long arms and legs, and are designed to be be as revealing or as concealing as you desire.
Dancers and performers sometimes layer them underneath lingerie, while other people just like to wear them behind closed doors in the bedroom or for lounging around the house.
They’re great for when you want a full, bedroom-ready sexy outfit in a flash as well, because there’s no matching and suspender straps to worry about.
Plus, they’re an all in one sexy lingerie solution - you don’t have to worry about the sizing dilemmas of bra, suspender and knicker sets, not to mention they’re a fraction of the cost.

While many of us love driving, comparatively fewer choose to actively pleasure ourselves in the driver's seat, as attested by the UK's poor sales figures of automatic cars.
Recently, however, a lady in her thirties - identified only as "pretty fit" by the Daily Mail's baroque-tongued source - found her way into print for just that after crashing her car into the back of a fish delivery van while using her vibrator in traffic.
Apparently overcome with amour as she sat at the wheel of her Mini Cooper, the frisky multitasker was spotted on camera swiftly buttoning up her trousers after the collision, and presumably hoping no one would try and shake hands.
In view of this, we felt that a quick recap of some 'when and where' sex toy dos and don'ts would be timely, helping to prevent more vibrator-related accidents and subsequent embarrassing stories in national newspapers.
Thought the bestselling Fleshlight couldn't get any better? Think again!

A lot of you lovely readers will already know who I am, but for those of you who don't, let me introduce myself.
I'm Jess; Lovehoney's in-house Bondage Expert. With a background in burlesque, pin up modelling, fetish event promotion and being a bit of a pirate-goth hybrid, my transition to Bondage Expert has been pretty easy!
As you can probaby imagine, I see a fair share of niche products, and every day have something new and fantastic on my desk. It's through personal research, experience and a keen interest in all things unusual that have led me to learn a tonne about a wide range of fetishes.
Every week I get asked questions about bondage and kink, but there are some questions which crop up (grooaan!) more often than others. That's the inspiration for this blog.
Every month I'll be taking the most common (or most interesting!) questions and answering them here.
Got a burning question about bondage, S&M or another fetish? Comment below and your question could be answered in next month's blog.
If you read through some of our 223,000 sex toy reviews, you'll notice that some of our customers try out their new toys just a couple of times before they write a review, while others use them consistently for a few weeks before sending us their thoughts. However, our Review of the Month winner for June tops them all: summersun had been using (and loving!) the Tantus Realdoe Wireless Strap On Double Dildo Vibrator 7 inch for THREE YEARS before submitting her review!
In her thorough review, summersun gives a great run down of why the toy works so well in her relationship, explains the importance of discreet packaging, and gives advice on the best way to use the vibrating strapless strap-on:
"This toy gets a 10 out of 10. This is my 'desert island' toy. The Realdoe is absolutely gorgeous. When you take it out of the packaging, it is a thick cock with a bulb at the top - it looks a bit obscene, but also strangely alluring, even though I am a lesbian. I don't normally like 'realistic' toys, and my girlfriend used to hate them, but this toy converted us."
Check out summersun's full review.
Summersun takes our top prize of a £100 Lovehoney voucher this month, but read on below to find out who was selected as a runner up this month:
