BlueBella have hit the headlines in both the Daily Mail and Daily Express today after CEO Emily Bendell was snubbed by Ann Widdecombe at the Women Of Worth Awards, 2011.
Bendell was due to be presented the Small Business of the Year Award by Ann Widdecombe, who was guest of honour at the annual ceremony, celebrating women's contribution to business.
After seeing a short film outlining Bendell's lingerie and lovestuff business, Widdecombe swiftly declined to present the award to her, leaving her standing until one of the organisers quickly stepped in.
"It was a real surprise to me that it happened at an event that was meant to celebrate the success of women. It certainly took the shine out of the day for me," said Bendell. "Ann is a great proponent of women getting ahead by their own merits so I would have hoped that she would have recognised my acheivements."
Ann eventually agreed to have a photo taken with Emily, off-stage, and without the award.

Rabbit vibrators are generally considered to be toys purely for use by woman. With their vibrating ears and rotating shaft, they're ideally designed to stimulate the clitoris and G-spot. But would those delicious ears work well on the male anatomy? And what about that romping, rotating shaft?
Now, we get rabbit vibrator reviews fairly often from men reporting on how well their chosen gift had gone down with their partner, but this week it was all about the men going solo with a rabbit vibrator. The topic even spilled over into the Lovehoney Forum, with a member starting the thread Any guys used a Rabbit?
Whether you're a man looking to buy a rabbit or a woman thinking about experimenting with your partner, read on to find out what our reviewers say in their sex toy reviews about what the rabbit vibrator can do for a man.

An avid sex toys reviewer, masterandslave has just written her 100th review. "It’s only been during my time on the Lovehoney Forum that I have begun to write reviews regularly. In doing so I have discovered an enjoyment for writing about items I feel passionately about."
With her new found-passion for writing we asked masterandslave, a straight female who has been with her other half for nearly 10 years, to tell us all about her sex toy collection.
Sex toys have a lot to answer for; they have helped spice things up, but they have also helped my partner and I to discover new pleasures that are just impossible to achieve with the human body. Toys for me have never been a replacement for my other half, but something we use together to explore pleasure further. Even when used on our own they then become a stepping-stone when we have been frustrated, waiting to see each other again! The world of sex toys also encompasses sexual comfort. Whilst going au naturale does have its perks it's also an uncomfortable truth for me. I have never had an orgasm without using some form of lubricant, and without this assistance things are just too painful and never enjoyable.
October is my favourite time of year. Aside from the joys of Halloween, which I think is better than Christmas, I also look forward to my annual voyage to London Fetish Weekend. Arguably the biggest event in the UK fetish calendar, it's an opportunity to pull out all of the stops and go sexually wild as our fair capital embraces everything BDSM for three days and nights of kink. But this year I didn't take my usual role as a model. Instead I was on a mission for Lovehoney. Armed with a pen and paper and a top scene photographer, I documented a vanilla couple's first tentative steps into the Bacchic world of the London fetish scene.
From pre-club jitters to end of night epiphanies, read on to discover first hand what my vanilla couple thought of their first fetish scene experience.
This Halloween we're pitting the vampires against the werewolves in the sexy supernatural stakes, with the first round of voting for sexiest vampire now closed.

From Monday 18th October (today), you can vote for the sexiest werewolf on the poll and in the ultimate showdown on Monday 25th October, we'll pit the winning sexiest vampire against the sexiest werewolf - just in time for a Halloween showdown.
Who will be your supernatural sex champion? You decide!

A thread was started on the Lovehoney Forumasking what people thought about to help them orgasm, and we thought we'd throw the question open on the blog's poll (on the right hand side of the blog). Who do you fantasise about most to help you climax?
We had 300 responses and the results are as follows:
Real-life partner (past or present) 45.61%, Real-life person (not your partner) 31.76%, Nameless faceless stranger 19.26%, Specific porn star 3.38%.
So it seems that real people are the fantasy for the majority of people who voted in the poll. Is this the same for you, or do you like to fantasise about completely made up people?
