  1. My Boudoir Photography Experience

    First things first, introductions! I'm Lucy (known to all at Lovehoney HQ as Plum) and I work in the Content team. Some of you might have seen me pop into the forums now and then, received an email from me, or read the odd blog I've written. If not, then hello!

    I have one of the best jobs in the world, and I’m very lucky to be able to write about sex and relationships all day long.

    When I was approached by Bath-based Boudoir Photography studio Divine Divas and asked to arrange a special offer for Lovehoney blog readers, I was delighted. I was even more excited when I realised I was being sent off to try the experience for myself!

    Thanks to the lovely Jo and Neill at Divine Divas, Lovehoney blog readers can enjoy the same experience I had (worth over £200) for just £25 - what a bargain! Plus, with £100 credit you're guaranteed to come away from your day with at least one delicious print to savour forever.

    'But I don't live in the South West!' I hear you cry. Never fear, as Divine Divas are part of the Boudoir by Fresh group who have studios all over the UK, so you're sure to find a fabulous studio near you.

    Now I've had the odd photo taken before, but something told me this was going to be a different experience altogether. Knowing this would be a little more intimate, I was looking forward to seeing what the studio would be like, not to mention how I would handle posing scantily-clad in my knickers for a stranger…

    Lovehoney Model of the Month

    Each month we scour the Lovehoney Community Photo Gallery for our favourite photo of someone modelling Lovehoney's lingerie.

    Amongst all the gorgeous photos uploaded during April, we saw a theme of lace emerging - whether a lacy body (like the winner, pictured left) or laced-up corsets as you'll see from our runners up.

    Our winner this month is Lovable_Rouge with this utterly gorgeous photo of her modelling the Oh La La Cheri Lace Bodysuit.

    Whilst we adore black and white photography, we were impressed to see a gorgeous full colour shot that managed to stay soft, uncluttered and well lit. We think she's knocked the spots of the real product photo, with her tumbling locks and beautiful pose.

    We were also incredibly impressed with how she's preserved both her anonymity and her modesty (difficult in a completely lace garment!) in such a seductive way.

    Lovable_Rogue wins a £100 Lovehoney Gift Voucher for this stunning shot.

    Runners up get 2,000 Oh! Points added to their account to spend or save as they choose.

    Read on to see the runners up and find out how YOU can enter our competition!

    Review of the Month

    April's winner is RexTheDog with his in-depth review of the Pink Mouth Fleshlight (£40.00).

    We love his practical advice and comparison with other products which hopefully helps our customers choose the right toy for them.

    "Wouldn't it be nice if [the pleasure] lasted longer? How about a few minutes? How about half an hour? This is just what the designers of the Pink Mouth have managed to do. They've managed to produce a toy that gently takes you right to the brink of orgasm and allows you to stay just inside the pleasure zone. It's great. Don't be fooled by the Fleshlight's apparent simplicity; this toy is capable of delivering jaw-dropping pleasure."

    Imagine being able to touch your lover whenever you want, even when you're not in the same room… Or even the same country.

    While it may sound like something from a sci-fi movie, it seems that long distance lovers may soon be able to virtually touch their partner using advanced technology that transports your touch over the internet.

    Durex have unveiled a solution for long distance frustration - vibrating underwear that is controlled by your partner.

    The "Fundawear" consists of male and female underwear fitted with vibrators that are activated by your partner's phone - the harder they press the keypad, the more intense the vibrations.

    While vibrating knickers are nothing new, the fact that what you feel corresponds to what your partner does on the other side of the Skype conversation is very exciting.

    Unfortunately Fundawear are still in development, so we can't get our hands on them just yet.

    But there are plenty of other techy toys for you to try. In fact, 2013 seems to be the year of high-tech sex toys.

    February saw the release of Lovehoney's own Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator (£29.99), the most discreet vibrator we've ever seen, which charges via USB from your laptop or computer and looks just like a flash drive.

    Meanwhile, the Jimmyjane Hello Touch Finger Vibrator (£49.99) has gotten much press, even being called the "best sex toy ever invented" by Gizmodo.

    Check out the promo video for Fundawear:

    Has The Secret To Sexual Happiness Been Unlocked?Has the secret to sexual happiness been unlocked - and is it all in our heads?

    A new study has shown that when it comes to sex, we're happy when we we're keeping up with the Joneses and even happier if we think we're having MORE SEX than our peers.

    Tim Wadsworth, associate professor of sociology at the University of Colorado Boulder says, "Having more sex makes us happy, but thinking that we are having more sex than other people makes us even happier."

    The results of Wadsworth's study of how sexual frequency corresponds with happiness noted:

    • Respondents who reported having sex at least two to three times a month were 33 percent more likely to report a higher level of happiness than those who reported having no sex during the previous 12 months.
    • Those reporting a once-weekly frequency were 44 percent more likely to report a higher level of happiness.
    • Those reporting having sex two to three times a week are 55 percent more likely to report a higher level of happiness.
    • If members of a peer group are having sex two to three times a month but believe their peers are on a once-weekly schedule, their probability of reporting a higher level of happiness falls by about 14 percent

    So while matching our peers (and bettering them) makes us feel happier, it would appear to be a dicey game. The fact we're social creatures and engage in social comparison often leaves us feeling lacking. As Wadsworth says, “We’re usually not looking down and therefore thinking of ourselves as better off, but we’re usually looking up and therefore feeling insufficient and inadequate.”

    What do you think? Is it quality over quantity? Do you feel happier if you think you're having a better sex life than your friends? Are you one of the rare few who don't let comparisons with other people influence your happiness?
