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.

Looking for a 100% organic dildo grown to your exact specifications? Look no further…
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!

We read recently on the blog of Dr Brooke Magnanti (better known to some as 'Belle de Jour') that it appeared someone was attempting to have her very comprehensive advice on how to stay anonymous online removed.
Lovehoney has regular contact with a lot of sex toy reviewers and bloggers who wish to retain their anonymity for all sorts of reasons. At Eroticon 2012 we met with a lot of (for want of a more nuanced term) sex bloggers - some who wanted to stay entirely anonymous, some that were happy to use their full real name and even those, like Zoe Margolis, who had been outed against their will.
We sincerely hope the post remains up at the original blog and are re-posting the blog as per her request so that this information stays in the public domain.
There are few things as expensive as sex furniture, sex dolls and sex machines in the sex toy world. These intricately detailed pleasure givers take a lot of thought, craftsmanship and effort to put together as well as a bulk load of materials. It’s no wonder they cost a pretty penny.
Every now and then a mould breaker comes along that sticks a pointy tongue out in the direction of convention, leaving me WTFing in the most splendid of ways. This week's Awesome Sex Toy combines two of the most expensive sex toy types available and slaps a surprising price tag on it to boot.
This spectacularly economical bit of kit incorporates a bondage couch, sex position furniture and a thrusting sex machine in one inflatable package.
Though some women are lucky enough to orgasm through penetration alone, for most it's the external, nerve-ending rich clitoris that's key to female pleasure.
Whether it’s a super powerful clitoral vibe you need when others have failed to bring you to climax, or something to help you achieve orgasm during sex with your partner, Lovehoney’s on hand to help you select the best clitoral stimulator for you.
Check out our top 10 best clit vibes, and don't forget to add a female orgasm booster to your basket too, to aid arousal and then increase your clitoral sensitivity.
Our entry for Toy with me Tuesday this week makes us wonder what other games could be spiced up with handcuffs.
Massage is not only thought to be the best method of seduction, it’s a comforting and bonding experience in its own right - whether or not it leads on to more intimate activities. It’s not difficult to give a soothing and sensual massage even if you’re inexperienced. Apply a fragrant oil or lotion, warming it in your hands first, rather than dripping it straight onto the body. Be guided by your partner as to what feels good for them. And for safety, don’t work directly on the spine or dig into muscles too deeply - use a gentle or medium pressure.
