There’s a lot to be said for the novelty factor when it comes to sex toys. As the writer of many of the Lovehoney product descriptions, I get to see and manhandle a lot of sex toys. Looking back over my previous ASTOTW posts, it’s clear I have a special fondness for quirky design.
Doc Johnson may be a little late to get Vac-U-Lock aboard the novelty train, but this week’s Awesome Sex Toy makes a great case for fun also being practical. I introduce to you the Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Knuckle Up Duster Plug (£8.00). RAWK!
If you’re a fan of the Vac-U-Lock range then you’ll be down with their special plug system. Each harness, handle and machine features one of their standard plugs, allowing you to use their wide range of Vac-U-Lock dildos, vibrators and anal tools with any of their suckers, harnesses and other plug-based paraphernalia.
We've always said our Bombshell Balm (mint, chocolate and cherry) is discreet enough to go unnoticed in a handbag - and here's our proof for this week's Toy with me Tuesday.
The trouble with this is that the longer it goes on, the more pressure we can put on ourselves (and if we don’t, others will, as you describe!) And pressure is one thing the female body does not respond well to.

Britain has gone silver ball crazy thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey but there are so many random names to describe them (jiggle balls, ben wa balls, kegel balls) that you may be finding it hard to figure them out.
As well as providing pleasure, regular use of vaginal balls will help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles over time which will make your vagina feel tighter, improve bladder control and best of all, bless you with more intense and longer lasting orgasms. No wonder Ana Steele loves hers so much.
Sizes, shapes, weights, materials and designs vary wildly and this guide will help you decide which kegel balls are right for you.
An ever-changing figurehead for sex toys, rabbit vibrators are constantly receiving tweaks and changes in order to produce the ultimate inside-and-out vibe.
Twisting, twirling, thrusting and spinning rabbit vibrators have all been created, but this week’s Awesome Sex Toy takes things back to basics. The Happy Rabbit is home to three vibrating motors which operate in sync with one another to create powerful vibrations which are consistent throughout the full length of the toy.
Motors are housed in the base and tip of the shaft, providing the bulk of the rabbit’s power, while a third motor offers animation to the rabbit stimulator. The most impressive part of this set-up comes from the patterns. Many vibrating sex toys have motors that follow the same patterns at the same time, but Happy Rabbit chooses to operate different motors at different times, offering a sensation that feels more like throbbing than buzzing.
The beautiful Icicles Rose Glass Dildo is our entry for Toy with me Tuesday this week. Don't be fooled into thinking it's just a novelty though, this glass dildo is as satisfying as it is romantic.
