As World Cup fever starts to grip the globe, there's a battle breaking out between a German sex toy manufacturer and two football stars. Ananova reports:
Michael Ballack and Oliver Kahn are demanding damages after they were featured in a soccer superstars range of vibrators.
New Chelsea signing Ballack and German goalie Kahn are unhappy with Beate Uhse launching erotic toys named Michael B and Olli K.
A dildo named David B also forms part of the collection of products aimed at peaking women's interest in the World Cup.
The two German footballers have now taken legal action against the Munich-based company for "clearly violating personal rights", although David Beckham has not made a complaint.

Tony Blair has warned young people to take responsibility for their sexual behaviour and learn more about sex. Well done Tony!
In an interview with Radio 1, our Dear Leader said that the results of the MTV Durex Bare All Survey would help to improve health services.
While we don't think that "young people" hang on Tony's every word, this is a bit rich from a man who many believe could convert to Catholicism. According to the Vatican, condoms don't stop Aids.
But seeing as his devoutly Catholic wife Cherie Blair is chums with the Pope, maybe he could get her to ask him to end the Catholic Church's objection to condoms.
Come on Tony, you know it makes sense!
It's a bit different from Alton Towers… opening up later this summer in London is Amora, the Academy of Sex & Relationships. ViewLondon reports:
Located in London's Trocadero near Piccadilly Circus, the Academy brings together hi-tech interactive exhibits along with new media displays, designed to educate and entertain the public about sexual health and relationships.
The site will occupy around 10,000 square feet of space, with bosses hoping to attract over 600,000 wide-eyed visitors in the first year.
However, the Academy is not simply a porn show claim its developers, who have spent three years and over £7 million preparing the displays.
"Titillation is not the goal," said a spokesman for the academy.
Lovehoney has its own Sex Academy online in the form of our sexcellent Sex Toys Buying Guides, which will give you plenty of inspiration about to how bring new excitement to your love life.

The national press in the UK has been awash recently with adverts for "The Original Blue Pill", a daring attempt to bring libido-enhancing drugs to the pages of The Daily Telegraph.
We salute any effort to improve the sexual health of the nation, but have to say that on close inspection, it's hard to tell what the products in the ads actually do… God bless the placebo effect!
If you want some that'll put a little lead in your pencil, have a go on one of our little blue pill alternatives.

Looks like there's going to be an attempt to get into the Guinness Book Of Records with the largest Strip Poker contest. Irish Bookmaker Paddy Power originally suggested the idea as a joke, but had nearly a hundred people enquire about taking part. "We're trying to investigate whether it's possible or whether we'll get put in prison for it," said a spokesman. (Spotted in All Headline News).
We've got several pack of cards to liven up a strip poker session - see our Kama Sutra Playing Cards and Nude Male Playing Cards.

The New York Post give a thumbs up for Trojan's Vibrating Ring, saying it helps women get a lot more pleasure in the bedroom and works well with a condom too. Here's a bit of their in-depth review of the Trojan Vibrating Ring:
Only about 30 percent of women reach the big O during sexual intercourse, the majority requiring more creative forms of stimulation to climax.
Last fall, the company introduced the Vibrating Condom Ring. (Competitors like Durex have recently done the same.) It is a prophylactic-cum-sex toy devised for protection and to enhance his and especially her pleasure during the act of coupling.
As a self-proclaimed torchbearer of female libidinal gratification, I believe this revved-up condom represents a milestone in women's sexual history. Because Trojan is the country's leading condom manufacturer, the arrival of the Vibrating Condom Ring - now carried by mass retailers like Duane Reade, CVS and Kmart - means that a woman's coital satisfaction is no longer regarded by the mainstream as subordinate to a man's.
"Female sexuality is out in the open and the message is, 'Take control of your sexuality,'" said David A. Johnson, group product manager at Trojan, noting that more than 40 percent of condom buyers are women, a market that is expanding and one the company is specifically targeting. "Adding a vibrator to a condom is a way that both parties can achieve pleasure at the same time. It adds spice to the bedroom. It's a known fact that vibrators do help women achieve better and more powerful orgasms."
And if you don't believe them, you can head over to Orgasm Army
and read lots of reviews by sex toy users about the best vibrating rings
and all sorts of other fantastic gizmos to make your sex life go wild.
Or, if you're already convinced, you can choose from our big range of vibrating rings - and we've got Trojan condoms too, of course.
