Television presenter, actress, sex expert and author of The Greatest Sex Tips in the World, Julie Peasgood helped out with a feature on The Alan Titchmarsh Show yesterday about the evolution of sex.
During the feature, she explained how cornflakes were originally developed by Dr. Kellogg as a food to lower the libido and how condoms were initially tested for strength by being able to hold the weight of a chair!
We personally think that the electronic testing that condoms go through nowadays is a much better form of trial!
She also went into detail about massager vibrators, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand, and how by the 1980s they had become intimate massagers as opposed to just a product to ease back pain!
Philips, the well known makers of televisions, telephones and kettles, have decided to branch out into the world of marital aids.
The first product from the new range is one for couples, namely the Philips Intimate Dual Massager HF8400.
The Philips Massagers are non-penetrative, vibrating toys that are designed with functionality and quality in mind for a vibrator that's a joy, rather than an embarrassment, to buy!
There are multiple vibration modes that are perfect for exploring and teasing each others' sweet spots.
Team it up with a slick and satisfying water-based lube or silicone-based lube for an exceptionally enhanced experience!
It also comes with a discreet, cordless, charging case, much like the Fun Factory Delight Rechargeable Massager, that allows you to recharge your toys all day for long-lasting playtime in the evening!
We are all very excited here at Lovehoney about the fantastic The New Joy of Sex book!
Not only is it fabulously presented, but it's been updated to encompass all the things that modern couples really want to know about.
The wonderfully detailed chapters explore the all important topics of clitoral pleasure, contraceptives, sex toys, lingerie, bondage and even female ejaculation.
Susan Quilliam, relationship psychologist and sex expert, was given the opportunity to add her expertise to the updated book.
Susan works with the International Journal of Family Planning, the British relationship counselling organisation Relate and innumerable global advisory boards in the field of sexual health and dysfunction, so is more than qualified to undertake the huge and prestigious job of updating the best-selling sex manual in the world!
I caught up with Susan and asked her all about the book and her opinions on sex toys and relationships.
Famous reviews site CNET, went to the Arse Elektronika conference and discovered the iBuzz Two Vibrator. CNET Senior Editor for MP3 players and digital audio, Donald Bell discussed the product with Kyle Machulis:
"The iBuzz allows you to hook in whatever stereo equipment you have and pick up the bass frequencies, which adjusts the speed of the attached vibrator. It also has features that allow you to have patterns or different speeds. The really cool thing about it is whatever music you like, it turns it into a sexual experience.
It has an input and vibrator socket as well as two headphone outputs, so you can put your headphones on your significant other and share that special experience through the same vibrator."
He's not wrong! The iBuzz Two is a music-activated sex toy that allows couples to share the music and share the love!
A SHORT DISSERTATION ON AN ALMOST INFAMOUS JAPANESE LUBRICANT
A Report by Carly "Pleasure" Drew
Tenga Real Hole Lotion is a 170ml tube of clear, water-based lubricant designed for use with the Tenga Flip Hole Masturbator but can also be used for regular masturbation and sex, too.
The packaging matches the general style of the Tenga range - sleek, smooth and classy. This is what I consider myself to be, apart from on a Friday night when I'm doing the robot and singing along to Abba.
Standing the tube up-right provides fascinating visuals as the air bubbles slowly float to the surface. This is an effect that I like to call the lubricant lava-lamp phenomena.
The "Real" statement in the title of the lubricant is supposed to refer to the realistic sensations it provides. It doesn't smell very real, unless your vagina happens to smell rather floral, but I won't hold that against Tenga Real Hole Lotion as it's actually a rather pleasant aroma.
In Russia, blow-up doll rides you! Or something like that…
On the 30th of August, swimmers, athletes and thrill seekers came together in the Vuoksa River, 82 kilometres northwest of St. Petersburg, for the sixth annual Bubble Baba Challenge - a river rapids rafting contest on blow-up sex dolls!
As one of the participants described it:
"This is one of my favourite events of the summer. I've been rafting most of my life, but the people and the atmosphere make this competition special. It's more of a crazy celebration and party than a sporting event!"
The 234 men and 24 women (real women, as opposed to inflatable ones!) who participated this year hopped on their blow-up friends and navigated down the rapids, hoping to beat the time-records for the previous years.
If you have a friend's birthday or hen night coming up, then a vibrator from the new Evolved range is the perfect thing to treat them to!
These orgasm-inducing toys come in the most beautiful packaging - a strong and safe metal tin that can be tied up with a sumptuous silk ribbon to create the most gorgeous gift or simply use it to store and display your new toy!
The best thing about these toys is that a new, themed vibrator is released regularly, so make sure you check the Evolved brand page often to see the latest addition to the collection!
According to research, August 27th is officially the most unromantic day of the year!
British couples are less likely to say "I love you", book a table for two in restaurants and buy champagne today than on any other day of the year - yet are more likely to argue and get divorced.
This may be due to a slump in mood after the Monday Bank Holiday excitement, being approximately at the furthest point from Valentine's Day in the calendar, or even just a general mid-week feeling of apathy!
