1. Sex Toys That Could Be Star Wars Props

    If you haven't already guessed, we're a bit Star Wars crazy here at Lovehoney - and as today is officially Star Wars Day (May the 4th - geddit?), we're slightly excited.

    We were even more excited when we were browsing the website and discovered that some of our best-selling toys wouldn't look out of place in the movies' props department.

    So in honour of one of the most successful franchises in cinematic history, we've put together a rogue(one)'s style gallery of our favourite sci-fi-style dildos, look-a-like lingerie, and bondage bedroom goodies.

    Are there any that we've missed? Be sure to let us know via holoprojector (or just by dropping us a comment below if your tech's not quite up to snuff).

    May the Fourth be with you, horny nerds.

    Royal Wedding Markle Sparkle Finger Ring

    Unless you've been living under a rock since November, you'll be well aware that on the 19th May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are tying the knot at Windsor Castle. Hooray!

    So, of course, we're celebrating in true Lovehoney style with a pair of highly unusual Royal Wedding rings.

    The Markle Sparkle Vibrating Finger Ring (pictured here) and the Royal Wedding Love Ring make the perfect sex toys for any nookie-loving newlyweds or ardent Royalists.

    As featured in The Daily Mail, Bustle, The New York Post, and The Sun (to name but a few), these tongue-in-cheek gold and silver souvenirs contain brilliantly buzzy bullet vibrators to bring extra-orgasmic tingles during any wedding night foreplay.

    To get your hands on this strictly limited edition duo before they're all gone, and find out more about Lovehoney's link with royalty, just keep reading.

    If you haven't already drawn a giant sparkly ring around April 9th in your diary, then you need to know that today is National Unicorn Day!

    What better way to show appreciation for those happy, horny mythical creatures than with plenty of glitter, rainbows and - of course - sex toys?

    We've picked 6 toys to help you harness your inner unicorn and send you soaring skywards, from dazzling dildos to seriously snazzy vibes.

    history-of-wand-vibe

    Ever gazed at your favourite vibrator and wondered what generous genius dreamt up its magical shape and amazing orgasm-giving powers?

    Where would we be without our favourite setting, the speed we know will skyrocket us to orgasm, and the toy we keep on standby by our bedside?

    From its very basic beginnings in Joseph Granville's doctor's surgery, to the flashy, bells-and-whistles varieties we now know and love, no sex toy has a more colourful history than the wand vibrator.

    We've delved into our X-rated history book to bring you the edited highlights. Enjoy!

    The 6 Movie Characters Responsible For Our Sexual Awakenings

    It's movie night. Lights are dimmed, the popcorn is burning in the microwave and it's time to forget about studying for a couple of hours (it can be done tomorrow, right?).

    Back in the days before binge watching a whole series was possible to do, without getting up from the sofa every four hours to put in the next DVD or VHS, movies ruled.

    We spent many hours in front of the screen, even though we were told we'd get square eyes. Recreating musical dance routines, crying over a doe dying, gasping at the daredevil stunts of the action heroes and marvelling at the tightness of the Goblin King's trousers...

    We are taking a trip back down cinematic memory lane, to look at some of the characters who inspired more than respect for their range. In fact, you could argue that some of them don't even have a range. But they sure were pretty.

    What is Voyeurism?

    If you're a big fan of British comedy, then chances are you've stumbled across the brilliance that is the Channel 4 sitcom, Peep Show.

    This cringe-inducing series follows the lives of housemates Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Usbourne as they navigate love, life, and Business Secrets of the Pharaohs.

    And though there are no plans for Mark, Jez, and Super Hans to come back to our screens any time soon (sob), their legacy lives on.

    So we picked out a dozen of our favourite Peep Show moments which we think accurately sum up several moments during our sex lives, and, we hope, yours.

    funny lovehoney site searches

    There have been 6.9 million unique searches on Lovehoney.co.uk in the past year.

    Most of the words that are typed into the search box at the top of our site are pretty straightforward - cock rings, vibrators and all the other types of sex toy we sell.

    And when customers type in a phrase, we try to present them with the product or page they're looking for. Simple.

    But! Some of the searches are not quite what you'd expect...

    "Anal cockroach"?

    Sorry, we don't have a page for that!

    Or any of the below, which are just some of the 101 funniest, weirdest, and 'whoops you're on the wrong website' searches we found.

    Celebrate St Skeletor's Day

    For those of you that dread the coming of February 14th, you can now breathe a sigh of relief that Valentine's Day is over and done for another year.

    But did you know that February 15th is the day of another momentous celebration?

    That's right. The day after Valentine's Day - Anti-Valentine's Day, Singles Appreciation Day or whatever you know it as - is a day to celebrate perhaps the most beloved villain of the 1980s: Skeletor.

    Yep. You read that right. St Skeletor's Day is an actual thing.

    But how do you commemorate such an event, the Lovehoney way? Well, we have picked out a couple of top toys to get you off to the right start. Foiling He-Man is up to you, though.

    art-gallery

    Who heads to an art gallery for the bums, boobs and willies?

    Plenty of people it turns out, and they're prepared to pay a pretty penny for a perfectly etched penis.

    World renowned auction house, Sotheby's, has been hosting Erotic: Passion and Desire, an exhibition of exceptional works dedicated to the naked human body.

    All works in the exhibition go to auction today, February 15th. You'll need a few quid if you're going to put a bid in, and it doesn't look like there's a '20% off when you buy 2' offer!

    With works from Picasso, Klimt, Matisse and more, collectors will be blessed with an abundance of breasts, bottoms, and other beautiful body parts as depicted by some of the most renowned artists from the past and present.

    Here are just a few examples of some the incredible works you can buy either at live auction or online:

    Kinky sex: in case you didn't know, it's pretty popular nowadays.

    Topics which used to be too taboo to talk about, like bondage and spanking, are now being discussed and explored by everyday couples all over the world. There are many reasons for this shift in attitude towards sex, but it's no surprise that the BDSM trend in particular has only grown since Fifty Shades of Grey debuted 8 years ago.

    Now, with five books, two films and a third movie (Fifty Shades Freed) just around the corner, it doesn't look like the Fifty Shades-induced bondage craze is going to stop anytime soon. Huzzah!

    In preparation for the newest film, which comes out next month, Lovehoney wanted to make sure all you kinky so'n'so's are playing safe and always use a safe word when you play like Grey.

    How? We did a survey, of course.

    The good news is, our survey results show that Lovehoney customers use their noggin when it comes to kinky play, and always use a safe word. Not only were you proud to tell us how seriously you take safety, but you also told us your favourite safe words for stopping the action mid-swing.

    And so we present to you, the top 10 most popular safe words (along with a few we simply couldn't miss out)...
