Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny visited a sex shop for her new daytime TV show, where she encountered a sex toy of the rotating kind. While seeking out some of the best sex toys on the market, she was shown the Lovehoney Sqweel, the world's first oral sex toy for women. Bethenny was intrigued by the toy and experimented by letting the 10 lapping tongues swirl around the palm of her hand. As she took a closer look at the rotating wheel she exclaimed, 'Who the hell is thinking up this stuff!'.
Bethenny is known for her entrepreneurial skills, self-help books and her former role in the hit show Real Housewives. In her new talk show she often focuses on sex toys and, judging by her excited reaction, loves the innovative, non-vibrating design of the Sqweel.

Sex blogger and Lovehoney community member The Nymphomaniac has started a new weekly event for sex bloggers called 'Toy with me Tuesday'.
The idea is to take photos of sex toys in unusual or creative ways. We've spotted sex bloggers taking amazing photos of sex toys for some time, so it's really exciting to see them all being collected in one place.
Our entry for the clever Toy with me Tuesday is this archive photo we love of Hella with a pile of sex dolls.
So far we really adore Something Blue by newlywed bloggers and Lovehoney community members acoupleofwankers and Anyone for Espresso? by sex blogger and community member ruffledsheets. Both raised smiles in the Lovehoney office for their intelligence as well as their artistic flair.

Lovehoney has over 167,000 sex toy reviews – making it the biggest resource of sex toy reviews in the world.
By reviewing sex toys on Lovehoney, you automatically enter our monthly competition to win £100 to spend on Lovehoney, and can also register to become a Sex Toy Tester. Only the best reviews will win competitions and earn tester products, so this guide will help you write a great review.
When you review your purchases on Lovehoney, your aim is to give other people the information that they can’t find on the product page: an opinion on how it performs and whether you think it’s worth spending the money on.
The best reviews are those that help someone else make an informed decision about the right toy for them. It doesn't matter whether you loved a toy or thought it was awful, the most important thing is to describe how it made you feel and what someone else would find if they bought the same item.
Remember to use your item a couple of times before you pass judgement on it. First impressions do count, but you might find your opinion changes (for better or worse) after a couple of sessions.
When writing a sex toy review for a Lovehoney, think about the following things:
At Lovehoney we use technology called heatmapping to show us the most popular areas of pages. Heatmapping places little coloured areas across a page, corresponding to how frequently they are clicked. Using this information, we can see how the layout of a page or list can be improved.
So for example, a heatmap of the left-hand navigation on our homepage looks something like the picture on the left.
However, recently, I was running a heatmap of our Sexy Lingerie page, and noticed something odd. People clicking on the pictures were clicking in, let’s say, rather specific areas of the image. It looked to me that the most popular areas of the image were either the boobs or crotch (see right).
Now, this could have just been a function of the type of lingerie being modelled - so I decided to test it!
Channel 4's Four Rooms is not your usual antiques programme, and last night alongside the score from Psycho and the chair J K Rowling sat on while she wrote Harry Potter, was an antique dildo dating from 1893. It stumped the group at first, till antiques dealer Celia Sawyer explained, "it's a dildo… quite a small one."
Complete with a US patent and a hollow centre for hot or cold water, this steel dildo is the ancestor of modern metal dildos and glass dildos used for sensory play.
A hand-me-down from her grandmother, the seller had high hopes of selling the dildo-cum-heirloom for a whopping £4,000. But alas, her resolve was not as steely as her dildo, as Jeffrey Salmon's offer of £1,111.11 was accepted - and sealed with a kiss! (No tongues though.)
Unfortunately, the deal was done before Gordon Watson could get a look in. Perhaps an unlikely admirer of the dildo, he said, "every fibre of my being, every single nerve-ending is ready to do whatever it takes to get the piece." Despite being "not quite my thing" Gordon Watson would have offered £3000, as a client of his is Belgium's largest collector of dildos.
Now, that's someone we'd like to meet…
Lovehoney's bestselling Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator has made its cinematic debut in French language film "L'Amore Dure Trois Ans" (Love Lasts 3 Years) directed by Frédéric Beigbeder. That's right, the sex toy in L'Amore Dure Trois Ans is a Sqweel!
The man holding the Sqweel in the film's trailer comments, "It's obviously a woman who invented this to ruin a man's life." How wrong he is though, as the inventor is none other than Mr Trevor Murphy!
You can see the Sqweel in L'Amour Dure Trois Ans trailer below at around the 1.28 mark.
