Valentine's Day is traditionally seen as a holiday for couples, but why should people in relationships have all the fun?
Modern love comes in all shapes and sizes - the creation of Galentine's Day, an increasingly popular day to celebrate friendship, proves this.
At Lovehoney, we believe that you don't have to be coupled up to appreciate the most romantic day of the year. So whether you decide to treat yourself to some brand-spanking new sex toys or get stuck into an erotic novel, here are 5 ways to have a super-satisfying Valentine's Day, whatever your relationship status.
Giving head, eating out, tossing the salad - whatever you call cunnilingus, fellatio and anilingus, one thing's for sure: oral sex is an unbelievably satisfying, intimate act.
Unsurprisingly, people have been doing it since the year dot. In the city of Pompeii, which was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, erotic frescoes depict people doing it, while the Kama Sutra suggests some tricky tongue fun positions.
And the Victorians were a pretty creative bunch when it came to describing oral – from "prick eating", to "minetting" and "eating seafood".
But despite the fact it's been around for years, even the most enthusiastic "lick-spigot" probably has a few questions and hang-ups about oral sex.
So, we thought we'd put all our tips together to bring you one big guide!
What's the best way to give a sex toy at Christmas? Well, really that's up to you, but around the dinner table with Aunt Mavis may not be the best option.
Our top tip would be to pop any sexy gifts in your partner's Christmas stocking: It's better for the giver, and the receiver.
How? Not only do most people open their stocking in the privacy of their bedroom which makes receiving a sexy treat more intimate, but most Christmas stockings are filled with an array of goodies, making the giving process a little less daunting too.
Join Jess and Lisa in this weeks special festive sex toy video to find out which toys they'd give to their partner in a stocking.
Reckon we missed a perfect toy, or got a question for us? Pop it in the comments!
From dancing around the house in your pants to loud, uninterrupted sex, there are loads of benefits to living alone or just with your partner.
Then Christmas arrives, and throws a big sparkly spanner in the works. Suddenly there's a relative lurking around every corner, and you're sleeping on the squeakiest mattress ever.
A house crowded with people isn't the easiest place to get it on, but before you put a ban on festive bonking, or spend the holidays separated from your favourite vibrator (gasp), here are some handy tips to help you get your glad tidings.
Female ejaculation – or squirting – has been around for centuries. In fact, the Kamasutra (written in 200-400 AD) refers to ‘female semen’ that ‘falls continually’.
Despite hundreds and hundreds of years of documentation of the benefits of female ejaculation, even in the 21st century, we still know relatively little about it.
It’s only in recent years that female ejaculation has become a culturally desirable addition to a lady’s sexual repertoire. And quite rightly we say. After all, who doesn’t want to experience incredible orgasms?
So if the whys and hows of squirting and female ejaculation are leaving you with a thirst that needs to be quenched, let our expert guide help you embark on your very own orgasmic, and potentially very wet, adventure.
