• So, in case you missed it, this week Universal Studios released the first sneak peak into Fifty Shades Darker, and suffice to say, it's got us pretty darn excited!

    After watching the trailer many, many times (that shower scene!) we started to notice a few hidden messages. Could they be telling us more than initially meets the eye? Are we making this up as we go along? Who knows?!

    Either way it gave me an excuse to spend all afternoon looking at Christian Grey. #ItsAHardLife

    So, for your pleasure, I've compiled my top 8 revealing set details which I reckon tell us even more about what we can expect to see in Fifty Shades Darker in February.

    So, you're off to university and there are 10,000 things you have to remember to bring with you.

    Though you've probably thought about plates, cups, towels, and most of the boring stuff, with all the stress about where you'll be living and how you'll find your course, other details can be overlooked.

    And guess what? Your prospective sex life may perhaps be one of those details.

    I myself will be starting university in my first year in October and whilst I am of course sorting out accommodation and education-related items, my thoughts have indeed turned to what activities I will be up to when not studying. I have a high sex drive, so intend to engage in as much pleasure as I can.

    As such, I have thought ahead so you don't have to! Here are what I believe to be essentials (plus a few optionals) to ensure you can play hard as well as work hard this academic year.

    Hold onto your spanking paddles, folks, Anastasia and Christian are back with a bang.

    Above is the first Fifty Shades Darker trailer, and it's full of both literal and metaphorical fireworks. Explosive!

    We'll bring you some proper analysis on who's who and what's what in the trailer after we've cooled down.

    Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

    For many people, there are few things more mortifying than the idea of someone hearing them masturbate.

    While there's no reason to be ashamed of masturbation at all, the social stigma, fear of a certain reputation and many other reasons mean that most people would rather keep their private pleasure just that: private.

    University is a time of juxtapositions. A wealth of nightlife and no money to explore it, a world of academic study and no time to embrace it and, for many, a new horizon of sexual possibilities and far too little privacy to comfortably enjoy them.

    Statistically, university is one of the most common times for a woman to start experimenting with masturbation and sex toys, but it is also frustratingly often one where privacy is at an all time low due to the paper thin walls and eternal uncertainty about who's in the house.

    That’s where this handy guide comes in, to help you maximise your potential you-time whilst minimising the need to worry about nosy flatmates asking awkward questions.

    Lift The Trophy

    Wednesday saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.

    But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

    Though it's often perceived that there's something of a taboo around sexuality and disability, we Lovehonians strongly believe that sexual satisfaction should be available for everyone.

    So with this in mind, we've trawled through 172,000 of our customer reviews to find the finest recommendations for differently-abled pleasure - all as chosen by you.
