As well as being magical, wands are wonderfully versatile and can be used for all sorts of play, from romantic massage right through to kinky fetish fun (and everything in between).
They're a great non-intimidating introduction to bedroom accessories, particularly for couples who'd rather steer clear of anatomical toys, and offer loads of play options without looking like a body part.
Plus, with just a couple of attachments in your midst, a wand can bring the pleasure of several toys, in one neat package.
This allows you to explore a whole world of pleasure, without dedicating your whole wardrobe to sexy products.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that!

With non-intimidating shapes, fun and positive patterns, and multispeed vibrations, they make amazing starter toys, or excellent additions to existing collections. Not only are they spreaders of joy, confidence and legs (cheeky), they are super affordable and make great gifts.
We can’t help but smile when we look at them and we reckon you will too. If you’re still a little concerned about sex toys, we’re confident this blog about confidence will change your mind. So without further ado…
Why are sex toys amazing for your confidence?
Sex toys are amazing - full stop. But when it comes to upping your sexual confidence, they can make a real difference. From orgasming for the first time, to improving your communication abilities, here are some of the ways a sex toy can boost your confidence.
We all know that being naked is pretty great, but what about the getting naked part?
If your undressing style consists of an under-the-covers fumble or you prefer the rip-off-your-clothes-and-go technique, we suggest you try slowing things down a little for a change. And maybe add some music.
Terrified? Stick with us.
The idea of being the centre of attention in the buff is, quite literally, lots of people's idea of a nightmare.
Anyone else have those dreams where you turn up to work/uni/your mother in law's wearing nothing but your knickers?
Ok, so it might be a bit of a challenge, but stripping for your partner can be unbelievably hot.
We've put together a handy guide to help boost your confidence and have your lover's heart pounding.
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.
We've all been there. You wake up from an erotic dream that's left you tingling all over. It would be a shame to 'waste' such incredible imagery – but you've got to be dressed and out the door in ten minutes.
A scenario like this is my own personal DEFCON 3. What you need in times like this, ladies, is a super-speedy orgasm - and to get one, I highly recommend that you reach for a vibrator.
Perfect for novices as well as experts, vibrators come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. They're a fun, non-intimidating sex toy and they're easy to use. However, trying to decide which one will make your toes curl in record time can feel overwhelming.
Luckily, Lovehoney has got you covered. The Sexual Happiness People set out to uncover which vibrator gives the fastest orgasms. The world's luckiest guinea pig? It was me.
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.
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, Paul Thomas Bell, 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.
