You don't really need a reason to treat yourself to new lingerie, but we know it can be hard to justify treating yourself.
Often, it's much easier to buy a raunchy gift for someone you love than it is to purchase something that's just for you.
That's why we've come up with 7 reasons why you should update your lingerie drawer.
So, you're ready to dip your toes into the magical waters of sex. Good for you! There is so much to explore and you're just getting started. Chances are you already know your sex theory (like how to put a condom on a banana and that egg + sperm = baby), but how much practical knowledge do you have about how to have consensual, comfortable and satisfying sex? To help you get started, we've put together some tips and advice from Lovehoney's resident sexologist, Chantelle Otten.
Are you ready to get hot and heavy?
This is a five-day challenge to help you to delve into the world of kink, change up your sexual menu, and bring something new or exciting into your boudoir.
After each day's challenge, it's a good idea to reflect on your experience. Write down what went well and what needs to be adapted, and rate the session out of 5 stars. To keep up the momentum, try to do all five sessions within the space of a month.
With just a couple of months left of 2020, I've been thinking about the future. This tends to extend into other things like learning about space, watching some future-y sci-fi movies and thinking a whole lot about the future of sex.
This has really got me thinking about the future of sex toys, so I sifted through Lovehoney to find what I thought gave me futuristic vibes, anything from high-tech, cool new ideas or even space-inspired toys. Here are some of the cool and futuristic toys I found!
You don’t need to be a brooding billionaire to transform your bedroom into The Red Room from Fifty Shades – simply pick up an under-mattress restraint set and you’ve got yourself a BDSM boudoir in the making!
For the uninitiated, we’ve got an introduction to under-mattress restraints, and four different ways you can enjoy the Bondage Boutique Bound to Please Under Mattress Restraint set.
Under-mattress restraints fall into the ‘Bondage’ category of BDSM. As the name suggests, they sit under your mattress. When you’re ready for some no-holds-barred bondage, you simply connect wrist and ankle cuffs to the ends of the under-mattress restraint and transform your bed into a pleasure podium.
When you’re done, you can disconnect the cuffs and leave the restraint tucked under your mattress – leaving no unsuspecting visitors to your house any the wiser.
Sexual fantasies are imagined scenarios that arouse us, and almost all of us (a whopping 95%) have had one. Plus, a lucky 50% of us have one every single day!
We have them most commonly when we're daydreaming, masturbating and when having sex. And the best bit – lots of us are fantasising about the same or very similar things.
Most of us fantasise about things that fall into three main genres: group sex, novelty, and power/control.
Having sexy fantasies enhances our masturbation and sexual experiences and they're a fantastic and healthy tool to rehearse, anticipate or explore future or past experiences.
I have long known what spreader bars are used for, but I have to admit I've always felt a little wary of them.
Don't get me wrong, I'm partial to a bit of bondage, but there was just something about spreader bars that just felt a bit too intense.
It was a sex toy that I never thought I'd try – but that all changed when the Bondage Boutique Expandable Spreader Bar and Cuffs Set showed up in the mail!
Back in 1950s and 1960s, sex on TV was a big no-no. Television censorship was so strict during this era that you couldn't even show married characters sharing a bed, and wives were forbidden from being depicted as pregnant.
What a contrast to the year 2020, where the gloves are off and sex is very much on the cards!
Here are 6 sex positive scenes that spring to mind. What are your faves? Let us know in the comments.
Sexy lingerie and comfort don't always go hand in hand.
If you want to dress like a Dominatrix or become a wet look wonder woman, you've often got to sacrifice a bit of comfort and ease of wear.
That's why I was pleasantly surprised to receive five pieces of sensual lingerie from Lovehoney that are as comfortable as they are sensual!
What I gained from this experience, apart from some gorgeous lingerie, is the knowledge that it is perfectly possible to look sexy and feel comfortable at the same time.
Don't take my word for it though, check out Lovehoney's newest lingerie here.
