The moment the DOMINIX Deluxe Adjustable Nipple Clamp Bars (£12.99) arrived on our desks, the avid knitters at Lovehoney envisioned an alternative use for them… And we just had to have a fun photoshoot to show you what we were thinking!

You know what it's like - a celebrity does something one day, and next thing you know, everyone's at it.
If Kylie Minogue's new song "Sexercize" is anything to go by, I think we'll be seeing people abandoning the gym for a more hands-on approach to fitness.
The Australian beauty - singer of classics such as "I Should Be So Lucky" and "Spinning Around" - has stripped down in her new music video to proclaim the benefits of "sexercize".
And she's not the only one! Even the NHS has recommended sex as a great way to burn calories, and we've blogged before about sex positions that double as a workout.
Read on for our favourite products that help you stay fit the fun way, and to see Kylie's sexy new video.

Lovehoney sponsored the Sex Appeal III: Mélange à Trois comedy show in aid of Brook in London last week, and it got us thinking - is anything in the world better than a good belly laugh?
In fact, many people believe that "laughology" may not only be the best medicine, it could also be key to a good sex life. Think about it - laughing puts us at ease, which helps us feel more relaxed in bed. The more relaxed you are, the more likely you are to orgasm. Win win!
Being able to share a joke with your lover and laugh off any awkward moments during sex could also help you grow closer as a couple. Do you think sharing a laugh can make you feel more intimate with your partner?

Here's one trend that won't go away!
2013 was another huge year for bondage, with sales of blindfolds, spankers and handcuffs remaining strong.
Britney Spears even whipped out an item from our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection in her new music video, and Bettie Page fans have been treated to a luxury collection inspired by the lady herself.
In Autumn we introduced a dedicated bondage section to make shopping for whips, rope and restraints even easier.
Which leads us to…
2. Fifty Shades of Grey (Again!)
After much speculation and gossip throughout the year, the final cast members were finally announced for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption, with filming having already begun.
The Fifty Shades fever is still alive and kicking, with the Official Pleasure Collection designed by Lovehoney being expanded to include pharmacy products, in addition to sex toys and bondage gear.
New additions to the E L James approved collection, include items infused with Christian Grey's signature scent, like the Sensual Touch Massage Oil (left, £9.99).

They say geek is chic, and if the new Star Wars vibrator posters currently circulating the web are anything to go by, they're definitely right!
The posters show a number of vibrators from luxury brand Lelo that have received a rather dashing makeover - to resemble characters from the movie francise Star Wars.
Unfortunately, this isn't a real range - the fake posters were created by Tumblr user Balazs Sarmai.
Sarmai found fame a few months with his Avengers-inspired sex toy posters (we blogged about them here), which featured products like Lelo Elise 2, the Stronic Eins from Fun Factory and the Lovers Premium Rabbit Vibe.
This time, however, he's chosen to transformed some of our favourite Lelo vibrators into Star Wars sex toys with the use of clever photo editing - including the Gigi 2 Luxury G-Spot Vibrator (£119.99), Alia Luxury Waterproof Massager (£82.49), Ida Rechargeable Remote Control Massager (£149.99) and, of course, the famous Lelo Smart Wand Vibrator (£119.99).
Read on to see the rest of the posters, and make sure to tell us which is your favourite in the comments.
