We're over halfway through October, which can mean only one thing: Halloween is almost here!
And whether you've been counting down the days since last November 1st, or you're locking the doors and hunkering down to avoid trick-or-treaters, one thing's for sure: the internet is brimming with sexy Halloween costume possibilities.
We've packed our new Halloween shop full of flirty costumes and spooky-style toys, but how can a night associated with ghouls, ghosts, and wee demon beasties be erotic?
We're glad you asked.
Here, we've collected our favourite Halloween-esque role play scenarios to take your night from frightful to delightful (without a drop of fake blood in sight).
Don’t forget, before any role play, it’s always a good idea to agree on a safe word with your partner so that if things get too intense, you can cease play immediately.

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.
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'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.
Valentine's Day can be a stressful time of year for many of us. Deciding on the perfect present or the ideal date night isn't always easy, and can make what is meant to be a fun evening into something rather more... taxing.
So last Thursday, to relieve some of London's foot-weary Valentine's shoppers, the Lovehoney team saddled up an Airstream bus with some trained masseurs and a ton of magic wand vibrators, and headed to London's South Bank to hand out free hand and foot massages (as well as some sex toy goodie bags, too!).
And boy, did you guys love those massages!
From 9am until 5pm, we had round-the-block queues of stressed-out Londoners looking for a fun way to relax (and warm up from the February chill), not to mention some famous faces from the world of the sexy media (including Reed from Come Curious, Emma from Bloomzy, and Mia More from Cliterati).
Want to see more? Check out the video of the day below.
Whether it's sex, Valentine's Day, or the announcement of some big Lovehoney news, we're all about the build-up here at Lovehoney.
So we thought we'd tease you with a little preview of some exciting new developments that we've got in the pipeline.
*drum roll please*
We've teamed up with a collection of amazing sex and relationships experts from across the globe to form The Head Board, a panel of pleasure pros who are here to answer YOUR sex-related questions.

Last week saw the release of the steamy fifth book from international best-selling author, E L James.
Darker retells the erotic rollercoaster ride that was Fifty Shades Darker, but this time from the perspective of its tortured and enigmatic male lead, Christian Grey himself.
Though we get some exhilarating new insights into the sexy scenes that we know and love, we also learn more about Christian's tangled relationships with Elena, Leila, and his mother, as well as greater understanding of how a 27-year-old got that damn rich.
But the scenes that have got everyone talking don't involve floggers, whips, or nipple clamps: they involve food.
More specifically, a carton of Ben and Jerry's, and a chicken stir fry.
If, like Ana and Christian, you want to involve something a little sweet (or savoury) in your lovemaking, we've whipped up our favourite food sex tips to make it extra-delicious.
