Portia Da Costa is one of our favourite erotic novelists here at Lovehoney. As the author of classics such as The Accidental Call Girl, In Too Deep and The Gift, she clearly knows how to spin a tale full of love, lust and eroticism that never fails to create a powerful response in the reader.
In this newest book, Portia takes her saucy storytelling to a new setting: the workplace. Her heroine Maria Lewis is surprised to discover an attraction to her striking boss, Robert Stone. But what does Mr Stone have in mind for Maria?
We asked Portia what inspired this new novel, and the answer may surprise you! Read on below for the author's insight and a sneaky preview of the story…
We can't believe it: the last episode of Frisky Business has now aired! We hoped you've enjoyed the show as much as we've enjoyed starring in it. To celebrate what's been an amazing series, we're giving away a great prize bundle of toys and sex essentials to one lucky winner.
This week's episode saw plenty of action unfold, as ever, at the Lovehoney office and beyond. It was Christmas time, and our busiest time of year. With around 300 calls a day to Customer Care over the festive season, the staff were certainly kept on their toes.
Neal headed to Manchester to oversee the filming of Lovehoney TV adverts, and they went down a storm. The warehouse boomed with orders over the Christmas period - and everyone got stuck in to help!
Secret Santa was in full swing in Lovehoney HQ, and the staff received all sorts of great gifts from the man himself - from dog jackets to geeky T-shirts!
Read on to find out how to win this exciting bundle of sexy treats, featured in the final episode of Frisky Business…
Introducing EDGE: the new range of performance-enhancing sex toys for men designed by international sex expert Tracey Cox.
EDGE is a collection of products designed to improve sexual performance. There's even a stamina training app, with a special timer and top tips and techniques to help you last longer in bed.
Tracey will be introducing her range through a series of videos, each one designed to inform and address a range of common sex queries and myths, from 'what's a penis pump for' to 'how can I last longer in bed.'
Whatever your age, whatever your experience - maintaining a healthy, happy sex life takes a little work. With the correct information and a few cleverly chosen tools, you can make personal improvements that you and your partner can both enjoy.
Check out Tracey's EDGE collection to discover how her new range for men can boost pleasure and performance during solo and shared use.
We can hardly believe it, but tonight is the final episode of Frisky Business. Sob!
Six weeks ago, the Lovehoney gang gathered nervously at the pub, waiting to see the first episode of our very own TV series - and now we're wondering how the time has flown by so quickly!
Tonight's episode is dedicated to our Christmas escapades (I know, just as Spring arrives!). Rushed off our feet with special offers and hugely excitable due to Christmas jumpers and the promise of mince pies, we're all looking a little rosy-cheeked in this evening's show.
Both the Content and Customer Care teams are treated to a special visit as Father Christmas pops into the offices, bulging sacks a-plenty.
Plus, international sexpert Tracey Cox is back in town discussing her new range of male sex toys, EDGE, and an innovative mobile app to help build stamina.
It's on at 10pm over on Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242).
Whether you're buying for yourself or a lover, shopping for bras can definitely be confusing. Underwired, non-underwired, cupless, peek-a-boo… What does it all mean?
Figuring out the correct band size and cup is the first step to success, but choosing a style that suits you or your partner is also essential. Just like how not everyone would choose skinny jeans over bootcut, the coverage, cup style and cut make a huge difference to how you feel about your new bra.
It's also important to keep your bust size in mind while choosing lingerie. Some styles look wonderful on women with cup sizes of A - C, while other cuts are more flattering on a larger bust. Below, we explain the most popular bra styles, and explain what body shape they're best for.
One more episode to go! We're nearing the end of Frisky Business, but don't be sad because we still have plenty of goodies to give away - including this fabulous bundle!
This week's episode saw Rich and Neal visit our Coco de Mer store in Covent Garden during London Fashion week. And whilst the streets outside may not be paved with gold, the walls inside Coco certainly are - all part of the eye-watering £35,000 revamp, of course!
Episode 5 also gave us a peek into the weird and wonderful world of bespoke butt plugs as Alison helped create a unique, limited addition steel butt plug for the Coco de Mer store.
Back in Bath, we found out why most of the returns we get here at Lovehoney are orders placed in the early hours, Tracey hosted a hit Bluebella party and Wendy shows us one of Coco de Mer's most expensive toys!
Once again, we've put together a titillating bundle bursting with goodies from last night's show! Want to be in with a chance of winning? Read on to find out how…
We love how ergonomic this clitoral vibrator is - simply squeeze the sides with your fingers to see it buzz into life. The harder you squeeze, the stronger the vibrations.
But what really makes this vibrator different is that you can compose your own pulsation pattern. That's right: You can teach the Minna Life Limon how to please you. Simply select the record function and create your own pattern by squeezing the sides as firmly as you like, and the Limon will take over from there.
The perfect size and shape to use alone or with a partner, this new vibrator ticks all the boxes: Waterproof? Check. USB Rechargeable? Check? Silicone? Check. Customizable? Check check check!
Sounds too good to be true? Watch LovehoneyTV presenter Annabelle Knight test out the functions below…

As Lovehoney's Chelsea says, "Every day's a dildo day!" but we've certainly been doing more than just selling dildos for the last 4,383 days! (We've also been selling lube, lingerie and latex, for a start.)
Today, Lovehoney is the UK's biggest online adult retailer. Seeing ourselves on TV in our 6 part fly-on-the-wall documentary series Frisky Business, it's easy to forget where we came from, but it's not always been like this…
