Weddings and wedding anniversaries are steeped in tradition but in the modern age it can be difficult to maintain a sense of traditionalism when it comes to gift-giving. Paper, lace and leather might not seem like the most inspired choices, but the traditional wedding anniversary gifts have vast potential for creative thinking and fun gift-giving.
Celebrating your wedding anniversary as a couple is about celebrating your union as a loving, inseparable partnership and choosing something that better represents your love for one another shows forethought, consideration and also sends the message that you’re still deeply attracted to your husband or wife.
To make your wedding anniversary traditional, romantic and sexy, check out these suggestions for alternative sexy gifts to celebrate your marriage and rekindle some of that wedding night passion.

Congratulations to LK21, who is our winner this month, for making her Rene Rofé Industrial Fishnet Crotchless Bodystocking look absolutely breathtaking (and thank you for being kind enough to share these photos with the Lovehoney Community).
Teaming the bodystocking with a pair of PVC gloves, a leather collar and some very sexy boots has created a deliciously submissive image that is beautifully reflected in her posing. For sharing these fantastic pics LK21 wins £100 to spend on Lovehoney.
We’ve chosen three runners up this month, and each will receive 2,000 Oh! Points on their Lovehoney account to spend as they choose.
Heavy metal is pretty awesome stuff, and for once I’m not talking about the music genre. When it comes to weight and pressure, very little lives up to the skills of a good metal dildo. They’re cool, hard and completely rigid, and they weigh more inch for inch than glass or any other sex toy material.
Metal sex toys tend to be quite beautiful and intricately cast with sweeping curves and a high-polished finish. This week's Awesome Sex Toy is no exception and it even comes with its own padded flight case. If you love simultaneous clitoral and vaginal stimulation, you’ll love the Metal Worx Double Trouble Metal Dildo.
When I first took this dildo out of the case, I was a bit confused. I couldn’t work out how you’d insert it both vaginally and anally at the same time and there was also something strangely familiar about the shape. I sat it on my desk and watched it for a while, rocking it on its upward curve by intermittently knocking the finger loop.
Seeing it rock back and forth on the curve, I immediately knew what this dildo emulates - the classic two finger vaginal plunge with clitoral thumb stimulation. Brilliant!
Just the name 'Ass Berry' was enough to inspire this week's Toy with me Tuesday. Cream, anyone?
Prostate milking refers to the centuries old practice of relieving the build-up of semen by prostate massage. You can still drive your man wild today, by stimulating his P-spot, more commonly known as the prostate gland, and considered to be the male equivalent of the female G-Spot.
If it's not Fifty Shades of Grey titillating the nation this summer, it's Magic Mike - a film about a troupe of red-hot male strippers starring Channing Tatum.
In the interests of sexual happiness (ahem) a group from Lovehoney went to see it. While we weren’t really sure what to expect, one thing was certain: the film was going to be filled with buff ting men grinding, gyrating and pumping in some seriously sexy stripper outfits.
Magic Mike has given us a lot of fantastic ideas about costumes for men and what is (and isn’t) sexy when it comes to a male stripper outfit. Sexy costumes for men are a tricky thing to get right, but one thing we’ve learned is that sometimes the hottest looks are the simplest and easiest to achieve.
Here are our top suggestions for sexy male stripper sets.

As you can imagine, I get some bizarre things sent to me in the post, but this sample cucumber dildo has got to be up there with one of the weirdest (and best!). We're all familiar with the odd phallic-shape vegetable but this cucumber was specially crafted by a green-fingered entrepreneur who is producing a kit to let you grow your very own cucumber cock.
We're told the seeds and special mould are currently in development, but the instructions are simple:
"Sow the seeds in spring, grow plant as you would any other (greenhouse/inside by a sunny window), wait till they flower then clamp on the mould, wait a week then bosh out pops your fruit!"
Keep your eyes peeled for further developments.
After weeks of typical British summer weather (*ahem*) we finally have some sunshine.
Rather than pouncing on our partners though, this humid weather leavers a lot of us feeling sticky and wanting our own space. Not so good for sexual happiness.
If you find yourself melting in the heat, here are six ways to stay cool in the bedroom while still getting hot, hot, hot.
If you picked up this week's More! Magazine, you'll have spotted Lovehoney as the Workmates of the Week.
More! came to Lovehoney's HQ in Bath, armed with a camera and plenty of questions about our day-to-day lives.
Those interrogated included (from left to right) TV presenter and sexpert Annabelle Knight, Laura from Customer Care (of Adam's Cock fame), me, Hella, Lovehoney Co-Founder Neal Slateford (sometimes know as 'The Professor') and Lovehoney's Head Buyer Bonny Hall - all brandishing Happy Rabbits!
