It's fair to say that, here at Lovehoney, we love sex toys. It's kind of our thing.

    But, aside from the obvious, there are tons of other uses for your favourite bedside buddy - and we think we've found another one.

    Lingerie expert Sammi (that's me) and bondage pro Jess (that's her) grab a couple of trusty thrusting vibes to see how effective they are as cues in a game of pool.

    Watch us and a comically small pool table battle it out in this special sport-themed episode of Sex Toys Ahoy.

    Fancy giving it a go yourself? Or perhaps just enjoying a thrusting vibrator as nature intended? Read on to see the toys featured in this video.

    How To Ask for What You Want in the Bedroom

    Sex is wonderful, and there are probably few of us reading this who would disagree.

    But, at times, it can be frustrating, embarrassing, and downright awkward. The most common woe I hear from friends is that they aren't getting what they want in the bedroom. Sure, sometimes what they want is a champagne breakfast in bed, but we can't all have that everyday.

    I'm talking about getting what you want between the sheets, and for some, the prospect of talking to a partner about this can be a scary thought. But it doesn't have to be.

    The root cause for most people is that they aren't confident in communicating their desires, and for some, they aren't even sure what it is that they want.

    Never fear! With these top tips you will soon have all of the tools you need to know what you want in bed - and how to ask for it.

    4 Reasons To Try A Love Egg

    If you're trying to watch what you eat, Easter can be a tricky holiday to navigate. Soon, Easter eggs will be thrust in our faces by every major supermarket chain and this aggressive marketing tactic is going to leave you with a bigger chocolate craving than Augustus Gloop.

    If you want to beat the chocolate giants at their own game, you have to think outside the chocolate box. Get yourself an entirely different type of egg this Easter.

    An egg that can make your love life more risky and exciting.

    An egg that can give you stronger orgasms.

    An egg that can strengthen your vaginal muscles.

    "What is this magical, orgasm-giving, muscle-strengthening egg you speak of, Audrey?!" I hear you ask. "And why should I get one?"

    Well, my friends, it's called a love egg. And you won't find one in the Easter Bunny's basket - but you definitely will on Lovehoney.

    How To Upgrade Your Sex Toy Box

    Even though the nights are getting lighter, for many of us, the prospect of that long-dreamed-of summer holiday still seems like a far-off fantasy.

    But a new season needs a new sex toy, especially when the nights are getting shorter and steamier.

    I've always been that friend who is recommending toys to everyone in the group chat, but sadly being the one who is the most experienced in finding sexual happiness means people very rarely throw recommendations my way.

    I'm sure many of you are in the same boat as me, where you have lots of toys, lubes and lingerie that still hit the spot... but a little upgrade never hurt anyone.

    Therefore, I've put together some of our hit-the-spot classics and offered some new upgrades for you try to this season. You know what they say: out with the old and in with the new.

    How to Have Shower Sex (That Beats Going Out)

    Sex in the bath or shower is a curiosity for many, and a 'would highly recommend it' for others. There's just something about getting down and dirty with a partner while getting clean at the same time.

    However, if you've ever lived in shared accommodation then you're aware that access to the bathroom, and a clean one at that, can be limited at best. Don't let your living situation be a limit to your sex life, though!

    Previously our bloggers have covered The Best Responses To Noisy Housemate Sex, and Top Tips for Masturbation in Shared Accommodation; given the echo of the bathroom and the splashing that can come with it, it seems that discreet sex in the bathroom is an impossibility.

    But where there is a will(y), there is a way, and by the end of this, you'll know just how to have mind-blowing sex in the bathroom.

    What Your Subject Choice Says About Your Sex Life

    University is a varied and diverse place, with a whole range of different types of people for you to meet and interact with.

    It's wonderful having the opportunity to learn about other people's passions and how someone else approaches life in comparison to yourself.

    Every subject has its strengths and particular fortes academically, but who says that can't translate to other areas too, such as your sex life?

    Got your eye on an enticing engineer? Want to have some va va voom with a very tempting French student? Read on below to see what particular skills they can bring to your bedroom, as well as the exam hall…

    (Remember, this is all a bit of light-hearted fun – obviously not everyone on the same course is exactly the same person and has exactly the same sex life!)

    Speedy Tips For Satisfying Quickies

    On the 26th of March, Daylight Savings will begin and the clocks will go forward an hour. This means mentally adding on an hour to the clock in your car until October, because ain’t nobody got time for actually changing it.

    For some people, Daylight Savings can mean less time for sex. If you are regularly forced to choose between fighting your family or friends for the bathroom, or missing the bus, having morning sex may seem impossible.

    And the same goes for evenings. You already have housework, reports, and coursework coming out of your butt, you certainly don’t have time to be putting anal beads up there, too. Right?

    Wrong!

    Sex doesn’t have to come to a screaming halt just because we lose an hour on Sunday. The screaming and the orgasms just have to happen faster, so read on if you want to master The Quickie.

    How To Boost Your Bedroom Body Confidence

    Ah, March, that dull month between rarely venturing out from your freezing house and drinking in a sunny beer garden, when New Year's Resolutions are, for many, a distant memory.

    For many (myself included) losing weight and toning up was on that list. However, for a number of reasons, maybe it hasn't happened, and you're still not feeling as sexy as you wish you could in the bedroom.

    I like to think I'm a very body-positive person, and I genuinely believe in beauty at any size, but when it comes to my own body, I really struggle to put my beliefs into practice.

    But, really, body confidence comes from accepting your body exactly as it is, rather than trying to make it into what you think everyone else wants it to be.

    So, if you're looking for a boost to your sex appeal and sensuality this spring, we've got three easy tips for you that can help you love your body, and everything it does for you.

    Lovehoney Student Sex Advice

    Instant attraction can be a wonderful thing. You lock eyes, there's an instant frisson that gets your heart pumping, and you begin to wonder what it would be like to take things further.

    With consent and safety precautions in place (these are of the utmost importance, especially when dealing with someone who is essentially a stranger), there is no reason you two can’t enjoy a night of mutual fun.

    However, even if they appear to be exactly the kind of person you're looking for, that doesn’t necessarily mean that going home with them is the best idea. I know that with hormones high, especially if it has been a while since your last sexual encounter, there is a temptation to ignore the signs and throw caution to the wind.

    Unfortunately, this could end in a disappointing evening in some way. It can be hard to take a step back and evaluate the situation logically, but watching out for these warning signs will hopefully nip any potential for disappointment or disaster in the bud…

    Why You Should Be Masturbating Right Now

    If someone asked you why you masturbate it might seem like an odd question - surely it’s obvious? It feels great, relieves sexual frustration, and some of us even do it just to kill time!

    But what if we told you there are a whole slew of other benefits being swept under the rug? Other than being a procrastinator's best friend, dabbling in a little ménage à moi can affect more areas of your life than you might realise.

    With positive impacts on your health, mood, sex life, and more, masturbation has been proven time and again to be of our healthier habits as a species, whatever your gender.

    So to find out more about exactly why a fap a day can keep the doctor away, just keep reading.
