Sex toys are wonderful things in far more ways than may immediately spring to mind.
The sheer variety available is especially noteworthy, and with the quantity of categories of toy and the level of variation within each of these categories, there really is something for everyone.
That said, can it ever be too much of a good thing?
That's where this post comes in - to help you navigate through the weird and wonderful world of sex toys to the essential few every man should own.
They're not the be all and end all of the sex toy world, but with these to hand you'll have a great starting point from which to branch out into whatever toys appeal to you specifically the most.
For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to the hardware than something a lot more pleasurable.
However, 'doing it yourself' shouldn't just be reserved for trying to whip up a shelf.
During the middle of any stressful period, I can't be the only who could do with a bit of help trying to relax after those long days, and unfortunately, giving up some of our precious time to have some fun with somebody else just isn't a priority.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't find some of that sexual happiness by ourselves.
If, like me, you'd benefit from a low-maintenance helping hand to put a smile on your face, have a look at four fabulous toys that are fit for the job.
You could say that foreplay is underrated.
When it comes to sex scenes on television, there's hardly ever any foreplay (I'm looking at you, Game of Thrones).
And if you're looking to porn for foreplay tips, you're outta luck, my friend. Zero, zip, zilch, nada.
Even when talking about sex, foreplay seems to be missed out of the nitty gritty details.
This is strange as, for many, foreplay is the best part of sex; having somebody bring you right to the edge of climax, and then go all-out for the grand finale.
So, for those of you looking to explore the art of tease and up your arousal game, here are our top picks of the best toys for mind-blowing foreplay.
As someone who has owned and used sex toys for the majority of their sexually active years, I am a huge advocate of all types of toy and see no problem in possessing and enjoying them.
With such a large range on the market, there truly is a toy out there for everyone.
That being said, as the title of this article suggests, I am here to shout loud and proud about the fabulousness that is:
The realistic dildo.
Although many people would consider this a toy box staple, there are many others who are yet to be convinced.
Why does it have to look so realistic? Surely if it doesn't vibrate, it's not worth it? Why does it have balls?
Well, I'm here to enlighten you as to why these toys deserve a place in everyone's bedside drawer.
“‘Do you want a regular vanilla relationship with no kinky fuckery at all?’” - Christian Grey
I’ve always considered myself to be adventurous when it comes to sex; I enjoy a bit of light bondage, the occasional spanking, but to be honest I’m always the one in control. One may even go as far as to say a control freak.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2017 was to try new things, and to be less stubborn, so when the opportunity presented itself to do just that, and to spend a week sampling the Fifty Shades Darker collection from Lovehoney I couldn’t hold myself back.
When I discussed this with my partners, Tom and Sara, they couldn’t help but laugh a little at the thought of me being submissive, but were ultimately eager to experiment with me.
So, how was it playing like Christian and Anastasia for five days? Read on to find out…
Here at Lovehoney we're committed to being as ethical as possible, which is why we make sure to offer a range of vegan-friendly lubricants, sex toys and lingerie.
Getting more fruits and veggies in your diet is never a bad idea, although we're pretty sure the Rocks Off Ass Berry Vibrating Butt Plug (pictured here) isn't what your nutritionist has in mind.
A vegetarian diet doesn't only make you healthier, it can also improve your sex life, according to a 2012 study by the University of California, Berkeley.
Could it be time to ditch the animal products once and for all? Let us help.
Check out some of our favourite ethical products below, and we'd love for you to share your vegan sex tips in the comments too.
