The nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling off the trees and it's time to start thinking about the C-word.
No, Christmas, you dirty lot.
Some find this time of year romantic - after all, what is more charming than snuggling up to a loved one?
But some of the drawbacks of this season include colds, forgettable TV programmes, stodgy food, mandatory time with relatives, less sunshine, roads becoming ice rinks and end of term assessments. Admit it, you're turned on already.
A good way to shake off the funk is to climb into bed with your lover... Except as soon as the clothes come off, the cold air bites you in the nether regions (not in a good way either). You jump into bed, only to be enveloped by the glacial sheets. Brrr.
Luckily, though, Lovehoney have a few items to turn up the heat (in more ways than one).
Whether you prefer vanilla sex, or something a little more daring, there is always room for a bit more experimentation.
Of course it's great to know what you like and dislike, but far too many people fall into the trap of finding a routine that works for them and never mixing it up.
Some of the best sexual experiences you will ever have will be as a result of being bold and trying new things.
The thought of something going disastrously wrong may be off-putting at first, but if you and your partner share a positive attitude then you both stand to have a great time.
With that in mind, here is our list of 3 fab kinks and why you need to try them.
For most of us, regardless of gender, trying to have more than one orgasm is about as easy as finding the motivation to start work for tomorrow’s deadline. Much like academic motivation, it’s something we all dream about but doubt we can ever experience.
I used to think that multiple orgasms (especially for women) were a bit of a myth. And to be honest, I thought it was just something they showed in porn films to make the action last longer.
However, I am (very) pleased to say that I was wrong: they are not a myth! Regardless of your gender, there are a variety of different techniques, toys and positions you can try to achieve that ‘ooh’ feeling more than once.
Tried and tested by myself, keep reading for my top tips on having that big finish again and again.
It’s a comedic trope that we’ve all seen before – the fake orgasm.
Some argue that Meg Ryan’s infamous diner scene in “When Harry Met Sally” takes the cake, but my personal favourite has to be when Elaine comes clean about her orgasms in “Seinfeld”.
The fake orgasm is a simple gag that gets an easy laugh from a television audience. The reality is that the motivating factors for faking an orgasm are far more complex.
So what counts as a fake orgasm? Why do people do it? And how, once you've started, do you stop doing it?
Well, the answers may not be what you would expect...
You could be forgiven for initially thinking that The Great British Bake Off is a classy show.
It’s largely responsible for the revived national interest in the art of baking. It’s won multiple BAFTA and National Television Awards. Heck, every episode takes place in that giant marquee in Welford Park! Things don’t get much more genteel than that.
But anyone who knows their Signature Challenge from their Showstopper will know that The Great British Bake Off is notorious for its saucy innuendos. Tonight marks the kick-off of the ninth series, and even a change of hosts has not prompted the Bake-Off team to pick their minds up out of the gutter *collective sigh of relief from the fans*.
Mouth-watering desserts and smutty remarks – never has there been a more perfect combination for compelling television!
It’s time to relive the top-shelf sexual banter that only the greatest baking-themed show on Earth can deliver – here are our all time favourite Great British Bake-Off innuendos...
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...
