• With an ever-increasing number of people discovering the pleasure that double-ended dildos can bring to the table (or indeed bed), they are no longer just the toy that makes an obligatory appearance in lesbian porn films. But why exactly do people use double-ended dildos? Let our experts explain all.

    Above: Watch Sammi Cole explain how to pick a double-ended dildo.

    When you first look at Belladonna's Bitch Fist Dildo, one of two things will come to mind:

    Reaction A - Ouch!
    Reaction B - Wow that looks fun!

    The large length and girth can be very intimidating to those who are new to sex toys, but it can also be very pleasurable, satisfying you in a way no other dildo can.

    How to Choose the Perfect Role Play Costume

    For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.

    But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that meter maid who once fined you.

    By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practices that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.

    But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

    Most strap-on harness kits have either a hole or an O-ring that you slot the dildo into, and usually come with at least one dildo to start you off. Once you discover the joys of strap-on sex though, you'll be hungry to try dildos in new shapes and sizes - or may be be ready to go bigger.

    This guide will give you all the information you need to choose the right dildo to fit your strap-on. And remember, with our generous returns policy you can always check your dildo in your harness at home and if it doesn't fit, just send it back.

    Strap ons are a great sex toy for couples. They allow you to penetrate your partner, while keeping your hands free for other fun… We've come a long way since dildos on a piece of elastic, so now when people speak about a strap-on, they usually mean a strap-on harness.

    A strap-on harness lets the wearer have more comfort and control, ensuring they can give the most pleasure to their partner. Most of the time, you can also switch dildos in and out of a harness so you can experiment with a whole range of toys.

    With a mix of materials making up their body-perfect forms, caring for a sex doll can seem like a tricky task. With a little care and attention, your favourite love doll will last the distance.

    Here are our top tips for looking after your blow-up and realistic sex dolls.

    Whether male or female, sex dolls are designed to closely match the shape and feel of a real person, making masturbation as close to sexual intercourse as you can get. Sometimes cheap sex dolls can seemingly come up short in the realism stakes. You can lock your doll away in the cupboard and write off the experience, return your doll using our 90 returns policy and opt for a more expensive lifelike sex doll or alternatively - put in a little work of your own to make the most of your purchase. After all, if sex with your partner isn’t great, there’s always room for improvement and the same is true for you and your doll.

    This guide is geared to give you some ideas on how to improve the look and feel of your sex doll. If you find your doll unattractive, then you’re less likely to enjoy them and may even face performance issues. If it feels bad to have sex with a doll, then the purpose of having bought it is entirely defeated. It is possible to upgrade your dolls using things you can pick up here at Lovehoney and this guide will show you how to transform your dud into dynamite.

    Sex dolls provide sexual stimulation by allowing you to get hands-free penetration in positions virtually identical to those you would with a partner. They're closer to the physical experience of having sex than handheld masturbators and the experience of sex with dolls is something many people are keen to explore.

    To the sex doll virgin, the range of dolls can be confusing and knowing exactly where to start can be frustrating. It's better to do research before buying to avoid a disappointing purchase.

    We sell two distinctive types of sex dolls: inexpensive blow up sex dolls and advanced lifelike sex dolls. This guide will help you choose the right sex doll for you.

    Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to alike or opposing materials. It is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys. If you mix your sex toys (particularly silicone, rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.

    We can't overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don't want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favourite toy.
