1. Happy Couple

    The sight of sex toys shouldn’t leave you quaking in your briefs or quivering in your knickers - at least not in a bad way.

    A humongous number of happy Lovehoney customers are in relationships and have actually found sex toys to be a wonderful boost to their bedroom antics. Whether it’s a bullet to share, or a specifically designed couple’s gadget, sex toys should be a sizzling addition to your sexual antics, not a replacement for your partner.

    In fact, many toys are specifically designed to pleasure both partners simultaneously.

    Here’s a breakdown of the best toys for using with a partner.

    Giving up control isn't always easy to do, but it can lead to lots of fun – especially when it comes to sex.

    Discreet, versatile, and super fun to play with, remote control sex toys are one of our favourite inventions aside from Netflix (although, we should probably take a moment to appreciate the creator of Netflix, what a legend).

    Opening up a world of sexual opportunity, remote control toys challenge your ability to keep calm and carry on – even with things not at all calm down below.

    They're also an easy way to introduce outdoor adventures into your sex life, and explore power play without restraint.

    Lovehoney has an unbelievable variety of remote control sex toys on offer, and here are some of the ways you can use them!

    Why a Magic Wand?

    'Cause they're magic!

    As well as being magical, wands are wonderfully versatile and can be used for all sorts of play, from romantic massage right through to kinky fetish fun (and everything in between).

    They're a great non-intimidating introduction to bedroom accessories, particularly for couples who'd rather steer clear of anatomical toys, and offer loads of play options without looking like a body part.

    Plus, with just a couple of attachments in your midst, a wand can bring the pleasure of several toys, in one neat package.

    This allows you to explore a whole world of pleasure, without dedicating your whole wardrobe to sexy products.

    Positive vibesPositive Vibes are your go-to feel-good sex toys - just look at them!

    With non-intimidating shapes, fun and positive patterns, and multispeed vibrations, they make amazing starter toys, or excellent additions to existing collections. Not only are they spreaders of joy, confidence and legs (cheeky), they are super affordable and make great gifts.

    We can’t help but smile when we look at them and we reckon you will too. If you’re still a little concerned about sex toys, we’re confident this blog about confidence will change your mind. So without further ado…

    Why are sex toys amazing for your confidence?

    We all know that being naked is pretty great, but what about the getting naked part?

    If your undressing style consists of an under-the-covers fumble or you prefer the rip-off-your-clothes-and-go technique, we suggest you try slowing things down a little for a change. And maybe add some music.

    Terrified? Stick with us.

    The idea of being the centre of attention in the buff is, quite literally, lots of people's idea of a nightmare.

    Anyone else have those dreams where you turn up to work/uni/your mother in law's wearing nothing but your knickers?

    Ok, so it might be a bit of a challenge, but stripping for your partner can be unbelievably hot.

    We've put together a handy guide to help boost your confidence and have your lover's heart pounding.

    What's The Best Vibrator for a Sensitive Clit?

    The clitoris is quite fairly seen as a nexus of sexual pleasure for women.

    Everyone has their own tips and tricks for getting the most out of clitoral stimulation, but what is often overlooked is the huge number of people out there with more sensitive clits.

    For those of you who fall into this camp direct, extreme clit stimulation can be overwhelming, but this doesn't need to be a hindrance.

    As with everyone's body, the pleasure attainable from sex and masturbation all comes down to knowing your body and what works for it.

    So I've picked out some of the best vibrators to help you avoid over-stimulation.

    Paul Thomas Bell For The Head Board

    Lots of you asked us, what is it that makes a man phenomenal in bed? Luckily, our Head Board sexpert and award-winning relationships blogger, is here to offer his take on the number one sex tip for men.

    Sex from a male perspective can often be more complicated than it really has to be. It's very easy to overthink sex, to over-analyse you partner's expectations and your own ability (or inability) to perform.

    It's important to remember that sex should be enjoyable for all parties. It's one of life's simplest yet greatest pleasures, but still we insist on stressing out about it.

    One of the biggest challenges for men is remembering that not all partners like the same thing; of course they don't! With one partner you may be a stud, and with another, you could be the greatest anti-climax the act of sex has ever known.

    There is, however, one trick that I firmly believe should work with just about any partner – and it's all about the build-up.

    valentines

    Valentine's Day can be an incredibly exciting time for some people, while for others it may be lacking a little 'oomph'. One thing is for sure, no date would be the same without a little Lovehoney sexual happiness.

    What is Orgasm Play?

    Orgasm play (or control) is the act of taking charge over how, when and if an orgasm will take place during intimate play.

    Orgasm control can be explored during solo masturbation (sometimes referred to as "edging", "peaking" or "surfing"), but is often used as a tool for submission during BDSM and power play scenarios.

    During couples' play, orgasm control is usually broken down into two main types: 'Orgasm Denial' and 'Forced Orgasms'.

    Not sure what that means?

    Read on to find out their true definitions, why you might like to try it, and how.
