Recently I looked at some of the pros and cons of Viagra. This has now given rise, so to speak, to more questions - one of which concerns possible side effects…
In the days of yore, when I first joined Lovehoney, there were a few creases to iron out in the content department. For a start, I was the entire content department. As the only writer I had to churn out as many words as possible, most of which revolved around new product descriptions.
Once Alice, Lucy and Gemma joined the ranks, time was freed up and we were all able to turn our attentions to new exploits. My pet project became sex dolls. I desperately wanted to revamp our dolls and I set to work getting every single one out of the warehouse to size up and re-explain.
During my rewrites I found plenty of problems, but none were as persistently infuriating as trying to take the internal dimensions with a floppy tape measure. After what must have been several irritating complaints, I came in one morning to find a special present on my desk. That present was The Official Lovehoney Depth Probe, a new take on the Singapore Stinger (£14.99) crafted by Alice’s very own Kirstie-Allsop-esque hands.

Review of the Month
It's always lovely to read a gushing review (especially about a G-spot toy) and this one celebrated the "fall-on-your-knees, hallelujah-chorus inducing" Uma by Je Joue.
We felt this review by, with pared back information and an easy sense of humour, would be an ideal read for sex toy newbies…
In April the community saw a surge in sexy lingerie photos making competition tight for first place.
After much deliberation we’ve chosen one overall winner and 3 runners up. Congratulations to Yummybunny who wowed us with this stunning three-quarter length shot showing off her Passion Bassaya Pola Wet Look Mini Dress.
Yummybunny wins £100 to spend on Lovehoney products. We look forward to seeing more of your shots.
The runners up were all of a high standard and came very close to being voted as the overall winner. Congratulations to Toyingaround, Emmabunny and Lottey who each win 2,000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish.
We’re now accepting submissions for May’s Model of the Month and we’ve already received some cracking entries.

It's the secret we've been sitting (uncomfortably) on for 6 months now: Lovehoney is going to be the subject of a documentary on Channel 4.
After hours (and hours and hours) of being trailed by cameras, we're finally ready to take you behind the scenes here at Lovehoney.
More Sex Please, We're British is on at 10pm, Tuesday 8th May on Channel 4.
This scene from my story Off the Shelf, from new Xcite Books erotic romance anthology, Silk Stockings is the hottest, in my opinion. Why? I don't want to give too much away (you'll have to buy the book to read the whole story!), but throughout the novella, there's been lots of tension and will-they-won't-they action between the characters Annalise and Damien, and this is where things finally come to a head.
They've just been out for a lovely meal together, and have finally bitten the bullet and decided to do what they've wanted to do for a while - stop messing around and take their relationship to the next level.
I love this sex scene for several reasons: one, because the poor souls have waited so long for it; two, because it was so much fun to write; three, because I knew the pair of them were gagging for one another and four, because I finally got to see what Damien looked like naked - I have the biggest crush on him! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this taster of what's to come (pun fully intended) and consider checking out Silk Stockings which contains three seriously hot erotic romance novellas, Off the Shelf.

Sometimes all a sex toy has to do is defy convention to be truly awesome and that’s why this week's Awesome Sex Toy is the RodeoH Strap-on Harness Underwear.
I don’t know who first thought “I know, I’ll create a strap-on that looks like something straight out of a pony play scene”, but I would be willing to bet that they had at least one or two horse-hair-embellished butt plugs knocking about in their bedside drawer.
The RodeoH strap on is different. Part underpants, part strap-on, this alternative harness redefines what it means to partake in strap-on sex.
Made from comfortable stretchy cotton, this harness fits exactly like a regular pair of pants but has the functionality of a traditional leather and metal strap-on harness… just without the bulky chastity belt aesthetic.
Trying to have sex before you’re ready results in pain, which not surprisingly, blocks arousal. If this happens a few times, it can start to make you apprehensive about penetration, which will further inhibit your body’s natural ability for enjoyment.
Everyone at Lovehoney has their favourite sex toy. Some, like the Customer Care team, need to know exactly how each toy feels in order to better help customers. For the rest of us, we all have something that we’ve seen and liked, or maybe was the first toy we bought when we started working here.
As the Head of Ecommerce at Lovehoney, my favourite toys are not just the ones I like, but the ones I know customers will like, and just as importantly, buy! So, in honour of our 10th Birthday, I thought I would run down the top 10 toys I love at Lovehoney.
When we think of sex dolls we tend to imagine the basic blow-up doll, but as you can see in the How to Choose a Sex Doll guide there are lots of different types. This week's Awesome Sex Toy is one of our different dolls. The Teddy Babe and Teddy Babe Deluxe are a very special kind of sex doll that was created with more than just sexual pleasure in mind.
Teddy Babes differ from any other luxury sex doll on the market by virtue of its unique build. Love dolls commonly have vinyl skin or are made from a silicone composition to mimic the feel of flesh and skin but a Teddy Babe has a soft, fluffy touch similar to a soft toy.
Unlike other sex dolls, Teddy Babes are made for cuddling. They’re filled with stuffing and have a posable wire skeleton, allowing them to be moved and posed in a variety of ways. Every part of their soft and squeezable form is made for loving, something other sex dolls can rarely offer.
