Leather is an extremely popular material for bondage play because it's durable, comfortable and only gets better with age, but what if you don't like (or agree with) leather products?
With more and more people choosing to live a life free from animal-based products, it can be tricky to expand your sexual horizons without going against your beliefs.
The good news is change is happening, and it's happening quickly. Manufacturers are now realising the increasing number of vegan kinksters out there and are making excellent alternatives to leather to help you get your kicks, without feeling guilty.
So, whether you're giving Veganuary a go, are a vegan-lifestyle veteran or simply don't like leather, I've picked out our top vegan-friendly spanking tools for newbies, experts and all those in between.
Come back next month for my leather-free restraint recommendations.
2016 – possibly one of the craziest years on record! – is at an end and now we look forward to the adventure that will be 2017.
The start of a new year gives many of us a chance to take stock, re-evaluate and do some reflection on what happened in the previous year, and what we’d love to work on, try out or do just a little differently.
Some people can go a little overboard with their goals and resolutions, but remember, the year doesn't necessarily have to mean you should aim for a whole new you or a vastly new life.
If you had an awesome 2016, don’t feel like 2017 should have to be a complete turn-around in a new direction… keep heading on that awesome path!
That being said, of course no one’s life is perfect, and no one’s sex life is 100% flawless. Even if yours is 99% flawless, there is no shame in aiming for improvement and further experimentation, so I present some Sexual New Year’s Resolutions that don’t require a total sex life shake-up, but can still have a positive impact all the same…

Wednesday saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.
But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.
Though it's often perceived that there's something of a taboo around sexuality and disability, we Lovehonians strongly believe that sexual satisfaction should be available for everyone.
So with this in mind, we've trawled through 195,000 of our customer reviews to find the finest recommendations for differently-abled pleasure - all as chosen by you.
