If you're reading this, you're undoubtedly already at least familiar with the basics of sex toys.
Chances are that you already have one or two firm favourites nestled away, whether hidden in a sock drawer or proudly out on display (seriously, some of those glass dildos are gorgeous).
Whatever your situation, it's pretty easy to slip into the habit of having your chosen couple of sex toys and not really ever venturing out from there.
After all, if it works, why change it? Well, that's what we're here to tell you.
Here are the top 4 reasons you should try a new sex toy!
The fourth season of sitcom 'Broad City' premieres in the UK at 11pm tonight. As far as I am concerned, the only appropriate response to this incredible news is a hearty “YAS KWEEN!”.
Abbi and Ilana have been gracing our screens for three years, with their struggle as two twenty-somethings trying to make it in New York consistently leading to non-stop hilarity.
There’s Abbi Abrams, Fine Arts graduate turned personal trainer, and then there is Ilana Wexler – a hedonistic, sex-positive 20 something who is Abbi’s best friend.
After watching every episode religiously, I believe that Abbi and Ilana are two of the most relatable characters on modern television - and the best part is, now you can buy sex toys inspired by the series here at Lovehoney.
Here are 20 times that Abbi and Ilana from ‘Broad City’ were all of us.
Don’t get me wrong: like most people, I love nothing more than lying on the sofa and watching Netflix in my comfy pyjamas.
However, when Lovehoney gave me the opportunity to try wearing sexy underwear every day for a week, it was an offer I just couldn’t resist.
I eagerly waited for the package to be delivered and was beyond excited to see the new underwear that had been chosen for me.
Unwrapping the usual discreet packaging and placing out the different pieces, I suddenly felt a little nervous; I’ve always picked my own underwear and some of the outfits chosen weren’t in my usual comfort zone.
Carry on reading to see how I got on…
Moving out of home is a huge step. You leave creature comforts behind and take on many new responsibilities.
You learn that electricity is not free, water is not free, Netflix is not free. Essentially, once you move out, life is about discovering that more and more things are not free.
But along with these adult responsibilities, there are several massive perks. One such perk is that you can now buy any type of sex toy you desire.
This is because no one in your shared house will go in your room while you are out, pick up your dirty clothes, hoover under your bed and come face to face with a massive dildo.
I've put together a list of the best sex toys to try now that you have flown the nest. My criteria for selecting these was: if a family member found this, could you talk your way out of it?
If the answer was "not a chance", it went on my list.
Fresher's Week is coming.
It's a time to meet people and celebrate the next chapter in your life, but it's also a great opportunity to hook up with like-minded folk, or maybe some not-so-like-minded folk (who can help to broaden your horizons).
If you're planning on getting up close and personal with some of your fellow Freshers, but don't know what to expect, rest assured that our Adventure Time friends in the Land of Ooo can tell you just what to expect...
So your results have come out, and yes, you’ve done it, you’ve made it into university!
Obviously you can proud be of your academic achievements and are going to be looking forward to your course, but let’s be honest… your thoughts must have turned towards the (hopefully!) imminent fun that comes along with going to university.
Some of the craziest fun you’ll experience all year is during Freshers’ Week: meeting new people, nightlife events galore and probably lots of drunken bonding. With this atmosphere of reckless abandon, the hormones can easily thrive.
Whether you are actively planning to get with someone, are open to the idea, are experienced, a virgin - basically whatever circumstances you are in - there is definitely the possibility that a sexual opportunity could arise.
As a newly-finished first year who indeed did have sex in Freshers’ week (and many of the weeks after), I am here to impart some wisdom with some tips and advice about how to approach sex in Freshers’ Week…
Nothing feels quite like knowing you look stunning in a set of lingerie, and with the variety available there really is a style to make any body type feel amazing.
From bodies, to corsets, to nipple pasties, to G-strings, there's a whole world of styles out there, each designed to create a different bedroom look.

But we think there are certain styles that can make every single body shape and size feel fantastic, so here are the top 4 lingerie styles that suit everyone.

If you’ve not listened to ‘My Dad Wrote A Porno’ yet, its high time you did. With over 70 million downloads worldwide, the podcast is a perfect example of what can happen if your parents learn how to self-publish.
The show is narrated by friends Alice, Jamie and the poor, unfortunate James – whose father, Rocky, took it upon himself to begin writing erotic literature.
The fruit of Rocky’s labour is the ‘Belinda Blinked’ series, which James and friends read aloud chapter-by-chapter.
It is true what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men – the ‘Belinda Blinked’ series is about as far from erotic as you could possibly get. Instead, it’s become one of the most successful comedy podcasts of all time.
The eponymous character, Belinda Blumenthal, is a business savvy, modern woman who isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants.
Although fictional, she has become one of my most revered role models, so I want to share with you the life lessons I have learnt from her wet-n-wild adventures.
It may seem like a small detail, but the location of where you get down and dirty can have a huge impact on your sex life.
Don’t get me wrong: rolling around in the familiarity of the bedsheets can hit the spot but, sometimes, it can be more comfortable than sexy.
If, like me, you watch the saucy, adventurous Game of Thrones sex scenes and wish your life could be that exciting (if a little less dangerous), then worry no more – from the kitchen counter to a trampoline, this list covers it all.
If you’re seeking to heat up your sexual experiences, you should check out these top five places everyone should have sex. Keep count of how many you may have already ticked off as you read through.
You'd happily buy a vibrator for your clitoris. You wouldn't think twice about buying a Fleshlight for your penis. So why not buy a toy for your anus?
Anal sex is just like any other type of intercourse in that a) it can feel incredibly pleasurable, and b) this pleasure can be enhanced by using toys.
If you are still unsure about what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to anal sex, you should read The Top Anal Sex Myths: Debunked.
For one thing, enjoying anal sex does not depend on your sexuality or gender. For men, the 'Male-G Spot' or prostate is most easily stimulated via the anus. This stimulation of the prostate can help men supersize their orgasm.
Women can enjoy anal sex too, because of the sheer amount of nerve endings they have in the area. Some women have even reported that anal sex has helped them to hit their G-Spot from behind.
Still not convinced? Here are four fab anal toys you need to try.
