Last month, I took the plunge and booked flights to Melbourne and a ticket to my first ever hackathon.
A hackathon is a problem-solving event. Generally, a whole bunch of strangers team up and design a solution to whatever their problem might be. Attendees usually include softwear developers, graphic designers, project managers and the like, but I knew that this one was going to be a little different. It was a sextech hackathon, hosted by Bryony Cole – sextech entrepreneur and judge of the Lovehoney Design A Sex Toy Competition.
Sextech is any technology or tool used in conjunction with any aspect of human sexuality. So, condoms, dating apps, toys, tools to aid with sexual dysfunctions, menstrual cycle tracking apps and even things like Facetime or Skype. The event invited all types of people who were interested in solving the problems we face in our sex lives.
It was an expensive commitment for me to go, but I knew that I would have serious FOMO if I didn’t attend and something told me that the people I would meet there would change my life. Spoiler, I was right.
If you’re one of the many people who’d love to give a sex toy a whirl, but worry about it being discovered by a family member or housemate, then you’re going to love this week’s YouTube episode.

Anyone who's shopped at Lovehoney knows how much we love a good sex toy review.
Not only do reviews help you (our lovely customers) figure out which products are most likely to get you off, but it also helps us create fun, pleasureable products which we know you'll love.
The latest stroke of genius?
After approximately 5,643,318,671 (give or take) penis-owning customers told us they love combining a stroker with powerful vibrations, we thought it's about time we made a product to make vibro-strokes easier than ever.
As such, we're very proud to introduce you to the brand new Lovehoney Power-gasm Stroker Wand Attachment!
A recent medical study in the US has changed the direction of intimate pleasure for women, demonstrating that super-strength orgasms may be available in real life, not just the movies.
Conducted by neuroscientist Dr Nicole Prause, founder of sexual biotechnology firm Liberos, the purpose of the scientific study was to test the effectiveness of the updated happy rabbit® versus manual stimulation.
19 women to date, with an average age of 31 and a wide range of racial and age diversity, have been tested. Each of the women visited the lab twice under strict lab conditions – once to use a happy rabbit® vibrator, and the other to masturbate using their hands.
