Are you stuck in a sexual rut? Are you and your significant other looking for something to spice up your sex life?
The key to boosting your mojo could lie in adding to your toy collection. By experimenting with sex toys that are totally different to what you would typically reach for, you allow yourself to open up to new sexual experiences which could very well be life-changing.
Sometimes all it takes is fresh, exciting equipment to prompt sexual exploration. You never know – one of the below toys could be the catalyst for the beginning of a whole new chapter.
Have your orgasms have been less than spectacular of late? Has masturbation or sex left you feeling like 'Oh well', rather than 'Oh yeah!'?
Don't fret, because Lovehoney has your back. Read on, we've got 7 easy tips for making your orgasms more powerful.
There are few activities as pleasurable and exciting as sex, but sometimes it can become predictable.
We can get stuck in the same routines, with go-to positions and toys. So, how can you step up your sex game when the excitement is MIA?
Here are a few of my top tips to get you started.
Marie Kondo wants us to surround ourselves with things that spark joy. Why not take it a step further and surround yourself with things that bring you sexual pleasure?
I'm proud of my sexuality so I absolutely love to display my toy collection – it reminds me how much I love myself and how powerful my pleasure is. If you're like me, but wanting to keep things a little more discreet than a veiny suction-cup dildo stuck on your mirror or a hot pink rabbit vibrator demanding focus on a shelf, this list is for you.
A reminder! If you're keeping your toys out on display, it's important to keep them away from anything that gets hot (like a window) and clean them well before and after use!
If there was ever a time to send yourself a sexy self-care package, it's now.
It can be tempting to only make time to pamper the lovers in our lives, and this can lead us to neglecting ourselves.
Self-neglect? We're not here for it! So, here are some basic steps to compiling a sensual self-care package.
As lockdown restrictions start to ease and the options to see a few friends, go out for dinner, or maybe even date, all become possibilities again, it's easy to feel a little bit overwhelmed with choice.
We may also realise that the tracksuit we have been wearing while making our sourdough bread and binging Netflix is all we have worn in about two months. While amazingly comfortable, we may not be feeling super sexy and ready to party.
We have built ourselves amazingly cosy little lockdown shells that have kept us sane in isolation, but how do we emerge from the cocoon, and embrace our sexual selves?
A married couple from Scotland, Alex and Louise met on a night out in Edinburgh 11 years ago. Although the relationship has changed a lot over the years, they are just as much in love today as they were back then. Unfortunately a car accident six years ago has left them both in chronic pain.
They hope by talking about the issues they face and how they might overcome them, it might help others in a similar situation. Here, Alex talks about being autistic and in a long-term relationship.
"For most of my life I felt out of place, like a puzzle piece that just doesn't fit. It wasn't until a few years ago that I finally understood the reason why.
I always knew I was different, that was pretty obvious if I am honest. I went to a school for children with learning difficulties but it wasn't until I was much older that I discovered the cause.
When a friend first suggested I was autistic, I was sceptical to say the least but I can't deny he was right."
Sex and relaxation go hand-in-hand, right? When we're relaxed it's easy to get in the mood for sex, and when sex is on the table (both literally and figuratively) we feel relaxed.
If only it were that simple! Sometimes we feel too stressed out to have sex, and sometimes the thought of having sex itself can be what stresses us out.
But that's where Lovehoney comes in – we're here to help you on both fronts! Let's show you how sex can help you relax, and how you can relax enough for sex.
This month I did something that I never in my wildest fantasies thought I would ever do – and that something was trying the ElectraStim EM60-E Flick Single Output Stimulator and ElectraPads Set (and no, that isn't a lesser-known Star Wars character) in conjunction with the ElectraStim Lula Noir Silicone Kegel Balls with E-Stim.
Prior to test driving ElectraStim's wares, I knew next to nothing about the Electro Sex toys available on the Lovehoney website. I knew they were sex toys, and I knew electricity was somehow involved. That was it! Now, after experiencing both products, my interest in Electro Sex toys has been well and truly sparked!
