1. Which Vibrator Gives The Quickest Orgasms

    You've probably noticed that at Lovehoney, we sell a lot of sex toys. And we mean A LOT.

    Each toy is designed with a different purpose in mind. Some are for a long, slow play that builds arousal, while others are for straight-to-the-point explosive pleasure.

    But which vibrator gives the fastest orgasms? In order to answer that, we needed a willing vulva-nteer to put our best-selling toys to the test.

    And, funnily enough, it wasn't that hard to find an eager beaver...

    Read on to find out what our student blogger, Audrey, had to say about her fastest orgasms with our toys.

    (Yes, stopclock results are included. This is a science experiment, don't you know!)

    6 Of The Most Scandalous Books In History

    Whenever you walk into your local high street bookshop, smutty novels are seemingly jumping off the shelves at you.

    You know what I mean - those books with moody, dark covers and generic titles like 'Beautiful Unbound', or something.

    But erotic fiction wasn't always so accessible. The erotic novel dates back hundreds of years before Fifty Shades of Grey burst onto the scene, and until the 1960s it was pretty hard to get your hands on a copy of your favourite filth.

    So, to celebrate the release of Fifty Shades Freed movie (squee!), I flipped through some of history's most scandalous novels to see how they hold up in 2018.

    Which is the Best Vibrator for A Sensitive Clitoris

    The clitoris is quite fairly seen as a nexus of sexual pleasure for women.

    Everyone has their own tips and tricks for getting the most out of clitoral stimulation, but what is often overlooked is the huge number of people out there with more sensitive clits.

    For those of you who fall into this camp direct, extreme clit stimulation can be overwhelming, but this doesn't need to be a hindrance.

    As with everyone's body, the pleasure attainable from sex and masturbation all comes down to knowing your body and what works for it.

    So I've picked out some of the best vibrators to help you avoid over-stimulation.

    6 Apps That'll Shake Up Your Sex Life

    As a student, I'd be lost without my smartphone. It's an essential piece of equipment for me. How else could I keep up with all my important academic notices like last minute seminar room changes, workshops showing me how to cite correctly, and student union election updates?

    Then, in my free time I play games, keep in touch with friends, search for the name of the person in the current TV series I'm watching to find out where I recognise them from, and browse Lovehoney forums.

    I've also tweeted a large supermarket chain because a relative and I were arguing about what year the local branch opened in our hometown. Behold, all this power and knowledge at my fingertips.

    But wait, I can hear you thinking, if smartphones can do so many awesome things surely there's probably an app for reigniting intimacy? Like autocomplete, I'm already there.

    Here are some of my favourites for boosting your sexual inspiration and adventures.

    Paul Thomas Bell For The Head Board

    Lots of you asked us, what is it that makes a man phenomenal in bed? Luckily, our Head Board sexpert and award-winning relationships blogger, is here to offer his take on the number one sex tip for men.

    Sex from a male perspective can often be more complicated than it really has to be. It's very easy to overthink sex, to over-analyse you partner's expectations and your own ability (or inability) to perform.

    It's important to remember that sex should be enjoyable for all parties. It's one of life's simplest yet greatest pleasures, but still we insist on stressing out about it.

    One of the biggest challenges for men is remembering that not all partners like the same thing; of course they don't! With one partner you may be a stud, and with another, you could be the greatest anti-climax the act of sex has ever known.

    There is, however, one trick that I firmly believe should work with just about any partner – and it's all about the build-up.

    6 Sexiest Movies to Set The Mood This Valentine's Day

    Cynics say that Valentine's Day is a get-rich-quick scheme contrived by florists and chocolatiers.

    Pay them no attention.

    No matter your relationship status, Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate love and sex.

    For those who are planning a romantic night-in this 14th of February, I have compiled a list of 9 of the sexiest Netflix movies to help you set the mood.

    I've ranked these films from mildest to explicit – so whether you're spending the evening with your long-term lover, your sex buddy, your crush (or even if you're flying solo) rest assured – I've got the film for you.

    The Most Beautiful Non-Realistic Sex Toys

    If 'beautiful' is not the first word that springs to mind when you think about sex toys, I can't say I'm surprised. 'Sexy' – I understand. 'Orgasmic' – makes total sense. 'Better give that a wipe over when I'm done' – yes, you most certainly should.

    However, sex toys can be objects of beauty. Some toys are made from glass or steel, sporting clean lines and elegant silhouettes. These exude a classic kind of beauty. Others are brightly coloured and almost abstract, instantly capturing your attention not unlike some forms of modern art.

    (Note: If you think I'm making a rather tenuous link, just Google 'Princess X' by Constantin Brancusi, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. There is no way you can tell me he wouldn't have been a loyal fan of Lovehoney!)

    It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, I've gathered six of the most beautiful, non-realistic sex toys here for you to behold (but, of course, the human form is beautiful too!).

    Galentines and Palentines Gifts Your Friends Will Love

    January is well and truly here. All reminders of Christmas and New Year have gone. Well, except the shortage of money and the occasional "Have you failed your New Year resolution yet?" comment - and let's not forget the back to university/work blues.

    If you know what day it is today, then rest assured, you are getting back into the swing of things. Give yourself a pat on the back if you spent more time out of pyjamas than in them. Go you! You're unstoppable...

    Here are some ideas for gifts for your besties. What better way to thank someone for being a friend?

    Valentine's on a Budget Blog

    After Christmas comes the inevitable period of 'I spent HOW much?', which most of us are well familiar with - and for those of us with a monthly pay check, the wait between the early December pay day and the one at the end of January seems endless.

    This is where Lovehoney and the Oh! Spot comes in.

    We've got a list of the sexiest gifts you can get, all for under £30, so there's something to suit every single budget.
