There are moments in my life where I count my blessings and last night, my Pollyanna moment was being glad for my sex. Having just introduced my boyfriend to the parents, I was staring rather lustfully at Cheryl Cole as she gyrated her… everything in some sexy-as-Hell strapped stockings.
Proving once again that only good can come from celebrities getting on the fetish fashion kick, I have to give props to the men in the room for exercising some excellent physical restraint, or at least hiding their excitement well. If you missed Cheryl's ensemble, check out today's Metro for a good gander.
If you fancy recreating Cheryl's sexy look yourself, read on to see Lovehoney's range of look-a-like leg wear.
A flurry of superb sexy toy reviews have been landing at Lovehoney in the past week - and nearly all of them from very happy and fulfilled people! We're always pleased to have such great feedback and when you pair it with funny and clever writing, it makes us all warm and fuzzy here at Lovehoney HQ.
This week's sex toy review round up
Kicking the tingles off was Tjejen with a review of Sliquid Organics Natural Warming Lubricant 125ml. "It did something all right, because afterwards my nether regions were tingling with afterglow. It felt great – I think I am going to become addicted to this stuff." Read the review.
Pyjamaparty had found a "new friend for life (or certainly many years!)" in the Sinclair Institute Select Crystal G CyberGlass Dildo. But what's this sad face we see, and why? "I have to leave it behind when I go to work :(" Read the review.
We welcomed back flamingdiceto the fold, who reviewed the Tracey Cox Supersex Love Lube 100mland managed to slide in a little pun (see what I did there…?). "For us men who lack a foreskin, this provides a lovely slick feeling when you're doing a bit of D.I.Y. (though I don't recommend using it to put shelves up with…)" Read the review.
Getting all Gollum-like was Tupperwareheartwith her brand new DevineToys Lockable Sex Toy Play Chest. "OK yes, I did caress the chest when I first got it, rocking back and forth whispering “My preeecious” as I stroked it. It’s THAT pretty." Read the review.
So it was BashfulBabe with the incredible one-liner this week in her review of Liquorice Willies. "My only complaint is that my daughter decided she liked them, too, and not only stole half the box, but was very upset that I wouldn't put a handful in her lunchbox." Read the review.
Whether you've been feeling warm and fuzzy about your recent purchases, or whether it wasn't quite to your liking, let everyone know about it and add a new review.

Sex toys are important to me because they’re so much more than a quick and easy way to get off! They’re a great way of exploring your partner and discovering what works for you and reaching places that fingers and… erm… other appendages can’t reach! Sex toys give you so many options to pleasure your partner, as well as making it so much easier to pleasure yourself.
I often hear talk from those I like to call the “unenlightened” who believe that if you have a partner you don’t need sex toys, but nothing could be further from the truth. My sex life has improved several times over since I started using toys, and my boyfriend uses them on me more than I use them myself! Having a fulfilling sex life features on the priority list of many couples, so why is it acceptable to pleasure yourself or your partner in one way but not in another? There’s only so far you can go with bodies alone, and there’s no reason to restrict yourself in that way.

It's back to basics this week, with trusty lubes and bullet vibrators proving their worth and getting some great sex toy reviews. A chance this week to step back from all-singing, all-dancing contraptions and take stock of some bedroom staples.
This week's sex toy review round up
First up this week is LokiDay, who joined the ranks of "smug post-coital reviewer" of Maximus Anal Lubricant 250ml. The trusty lube had terrific staying power, outlasting the relationship and finding a place in LokiDay's heart. "When the friend-with-benefits turned out to be a friend-with-boundary-issues I ditched the bloke and kept the lube. Never had a regret." Read the review.
Another happy customer, Albeit needs look no further after having bought the Tracey Cox Supersex Love Lube 100ml. Educating us all, Albeit lets us know that there is a technical term for the sticky residue that lesser lubes leave: "glop". Read the review.
New uni student DeQuincey243 must have shocked the postman as she grabbed her package containing the Ammunition RO-80mm Bullet Vibrator out of his hands. Afterwards, we reckon she may have left her housemates wondering what the thumping was as, "it brought me to my knees - I fell off the bed!" Read the review.
AbsintheFaerieis a self-proclaimed sex toy expert, "chances are I'd been there and wet the sheets." But she found the Mini One-Touch Wireless Bullet Vibratora great toy for, "people who have drawers upon drawers of complicated devices and perhaps want to get back to basics."Read the review.
And now for something different with Mayme's review of the G World Gorgeous Criss Cross Ribbon Body Set. Prepare yourselves, this one is certainly pant-stirring, "He sucked, rubbed, licked and nibbled me into a frenzy through the fabric… In the end I was begging him to rip it off!" Read the review.
Whether you've been trying toys with bells and whistles or have gone back to basics, let everyone know about it and add a new review.
Cillit Bang, hippies and caravans have managed to make their way into your sex toy reviews this week - not forgetting, of course, the live-eel wannabe.
"This is insane, seriously." Says one reviewer, and we can only agree! Read on to find out what's been going on in bedrooms (and caravans) across the country.

"We love having her in our lives… it has been great."
It's always great to hear about the fun you've had with your toys, but it's just as important to get feedback about what products aren't doing it for you.

It seems to have been a week of experimentation in your bedrooms with twirling, sex toy design improvements, a casualty and even someone's mum getting involved.
Really, it's been one of those weeks…
New recycling regulations mean that all electrical equipment - including sex toys! - must be disposed of at a designated electrical waste collection centre. This means that you shouldn't just chuck your dead vibrator in the kitchen bin!
We were wondering…
