    Ok, so you're probably aware of your own erogenous zones by now – those super-sensitive sweet spots that beg to be stroked, teased and touched.

    Our lips, fingers and other areas of our body are pretty adept when it comes to arousing our, or someone else's, ohhh-zones.

    But what if we told you that a toy could take things to a whole new level, adding a whole bunch of new textures and sensations to the mix?

    We asked award-winning sex therapist and relationship specialist Chantelle Otten which sex toys she recommends when exploring our erogenous zones.

    How Sex Makes You Happier

    There are endless studies that show sex makes us happier.

    From improving long term relationships, to boosting our cognitive ability as we age, to even reducing physical pain, sex gives us plenty of reasons to smile

    But, how does it work? How does a cheeky romp between the sheets do so much for our well-being?

    In this blog we take a deeper look at sex and happiness, to discover why getting lucky makes us feel so damn good.


    Black Friday Ultimate Shopping Therapy POTW

    If your default pose this week has been "thumb-hovering-over-the-refresh-button-on-your-favourite-website-waiting-for-the-hottest-Black-Friday-deals", then this is the sex position for you.

    Look, we know pulling out your phone mid-moment is usually a no-no, but if our incredible deals have got you hot under the collar, then this variation on the classic reverse cowgirl lets you and your partner fill your baskets, as well as your boots.

    We're just kidding, of course. Once you've bagged yourself the best Black Friday butt plug bargain around (phew), or finally treated yourself to the lingerie you've been lusting after for months, then put the devices away and spend some quality one-on-one time with your boo, without distraction.

    The 'orgasm gap' is a term coined fairly recently, and it refers to the fact that in heterosexual relationships, women on average are having far fewer orgasms than men.

    So why is this, and how can we level the playing field? Perhaps women are too polite or somehow feel less entitled? Is it a communication problem or are we simply uneducated? And how come lesbians have the most orgasms out of all the sexual genres?

    This week, Sammi and Nick are joined by stand-up comedian, Fern Brady and they share their thoughts on 'what we can do about the orgasm gap'.

    And of course we cover our usual segments "You can never know enough about sex" and "Question of the week" where we share what we've learned about sex this week, and answer your sex questions.

    Sexual Empowerment

    Sexual empowerment is the hot topic of the moment - and we couldn't be more thrilled. Finally, people are openly discussing the importance of owning and embracing their sexuality.

    The discussion is helping people to create the sex life they want. Which is fantastic news for all, as recent studies show a fulfilling sex life is an integral part of a good life.

    But, what does it really mean to be sexually empowered? In this blog we've broken it down.

    wet look style

    Once confined to the dark corners of fetish parties and the back of Cruella De Vil's wardrobe, wet look clothing is now making its way out of the dungeon and onto the catwalk.

    Wet look fashion is dominating the high street (not to mention the bedroom). Offering an easier-to-wear option than latex and softer styling than PVC, wet look fabrics give you the glossy glamour of BDSM fabrics without the restriction - which means you can wear them any time!

    Undeniably sexy, the style is perfect for parties both in and out of the bedroom. That's why we've created Fierce, our brand new wet look clothing and boudoir range. Designed to get you owning, exploring and expressing your sexuality, Fierce puts you in the spotlight and brings out your inner Domme diva.

    Whether you fancy adding a mere drip, or a full-on waterfall to your wardrobe, in this blog we show you how to master the wet look style.

    For many, the idea of wearing wet look clothing can seem a little daunting - after all, isn't the land of black-and-glossy fabrics reserved for the dungeon?

    However, we here at Lovehoney think that slipping into a little wet look lingerie is a simple-but-sensationally-sexy way to vamp up your wardrobe. You just have to look in your local high street clothes shops to see that wet look clothing is no longer something that you find in a shifty backstreet store with blacked-out windows.

    From leggings, to coats, to PVC-trimmed dresses, it's out there. It's - dare we say it - mainstream. Heck, you've probably got a faux leather jacket or some knee-high boots stashed away in your wardrobe already, and haven't even given it a second thought.

    So, how do you work it into your boudoir threads without feeling a little, well, silly? Well, grab your latex polish, and check out our top tips for bringing wet-look lingerie into your life. After all, isn't it your time to shine?
