Think university league tables are boring? Think again…
You may remember a little survey we ran a few weeks ago, which was all about education and sex. Well, the results are in, and (teamed with our latest sales data) what we discovered makes for some pretty interesting reading…
Cambridge University topped the sex toy league table, followed by Oxford - suggesting a high IQ could mean a higher sex drive, and that high-fliers are more open to sexual experimentation. Woah!
Not only were they officially the most sexually adventurous, students at Cambridge University spent 25% more than they did last year - with sexy lingerie being the biggest seller for this brainy bunch.
Nottingham and Northampton Universities, however, fell to the bottom of the sexual league with the least money spent on sex toys per student. You can do better than that!
Yet again you've dazzled us with your sex toy reviews this month! From detailed and precise, to funny and entertaining, your feedback is always a pleasure to read and this month has had us smiling from ear-to-ear.
Review of the Month
Dave_S is our winner for June - congratulations! Not only is his review of the Tracey Cox EDGE Ultimate Performance Kit (£50.00) helpful and informative, but his (clearly, quite special) relationship with "Little Dave" kept us entertained.
"Like many middle-aged men, my body has started to let me down. My hair's going grey and my joints are starting to ache. But most worryingly of all, Little Dave isn't quite as perky as he used to be. Where once he stood proud and erect, a monument to my virility, now he is but a pale shadow of his former glory, lying broken and half-hidden in the undergrowth, like the toppled statue of a once great leader. Unlike most middle-aged men, however, I chose not to buy a motorbike but instead put Little Dave into training, to get him back up to fighting weight…."
Sometimes it seems like there's a "day" for everything - it started with Mother's Day and Father's Day, but in July alone we're expected to celebrate National Shed Week, International Reggae Day and National Fishing Month.
However, there is one celebration coming up on Sunday* that we're happy to get on board with: International Kissing Day!
Let's face it - there's nothing like a good snog with the person you love to set the heart racing. With that in mind, we've put together a blog post with the top kissing facts for your enjoyment.
When we asked the author what inspired this anthology, she explained "In The Darker Side of Pleasure I wanted to present kink from three different perspectives, which is important because BDSM is such a unique experience for each of us."
