1. Disguised as a flashlight (hence the name) a Fleshlight is a top-notch male sex toy that enhances masturbation or adds an extra dimension to foreplay for couples. Within the outer casing is a soft and stretchy sleeve that is made from an extremely lifelike material that simulates the unmistakable feel and intense sensations of sex.

    If you've never thought about using a male sex toy to aid your solo play, you'll find a Fleshlight will revolutionize your experience. This guide will help you find the best Fleshlight for you - they all offer something different.

    Lovehoney has over 600 different types of vibrator, so finding the best vibrator for you may seem a bit of a mission.

    The best way to start on your quest to choose the right vibrator is to check out the Vibrator Size Guide, which gives you a life-size view of the size and shape of our most popular vibrators.

    Once you've settled on roughly how big you want it to be, think about about how you're going to use your vibe. Which bits of your body (or your partner's body) do you want to pleasure, and when? Once you've got an idea in mind, see our handy guide below to help you find the right vibrator for you.

    Lingerie shopping is tricky at the best of times. If you've tried and failed to find the perfect lingerie gift for your partner before, it can be tempting to write off the whole experience and stick with some flowers instead. Flowers are lovely, but most of us girls would like a present too. Oh, and some chocolate.

    If you're left jaded by the world of female undergarments (and not even our Guide to Lingerie Styles could help), then there's an easy solution you can try: the wonderful world of the One Size garment.

    These beauteous items of clothing are designed to fit and flatter most figures, making one size items as close to a dead cert as you can get.

    This guide should give you all the information you need to buy the ideal one size lingerie for your lover, and we've even listed our top ten favourite pieces to make the choice even easier.

    Many of our first-time anal sex experiences are accidental or ill prepared for at best, giving a poor first-time impression of all things anally sexual. Many couples don’t tend to talk about anal play and as individuals, we’re often quick to write it off, especially if we’ve had a bad experience in the past.

    These self-imposed taboos mean that scores of us are missing out on the joy of anal sex and the pleasure that both men and women experience through anal penetration.

    This first-time anal sex guide will talk you through anal experimentation and anal penetration, helping you to progressively experiment both alone, with a partner or with anal sex toys to achieve a satisfying anal sex life.

    Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.

    The key to shopping for sexy maternity lingerie is to choose something loose and flattering that won't start to feel uncomfortably tight as your baby grows. Comfort is important, so we recommend staying away from underwired or boned lingerie - save the lace-up corsets until after you give birth!

    It's a good idea to choose lingerie with adjustable straps and fastenings that allow you to change the fit as your baby grows. Something stretchy and flattering like the Seven 'til Midnight Black Underwired Babydoll Set would be ideal.

    One size lingerie tends to have more of a stretch than regular sized clothing, meaning it expands for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. We've chosen some key pieces below that look great before, during and after pregnancy, helping you feel satisfied and sexy for the entire nine months.

    If you like the look of shiny clothing, you may have already tried PVC or patent leather. The next step for many people is trying latex or rubber. You don't have to be a hardened fetishist or fashionista to try latex and this guide will help you choose the right size latex wear and explain how to put it on.

    Before you start: check that you do not have a latex allergy. Cut cheap latex gloves into strips and place them in various places against your skin (under a bra strap, inside a sock, inside a waistband) and, after an hour or two, check for any signs of irritation.

    You may be thinking; “But I've used condoms, I know I'm not allergic.” You should still patch test various parts of your body before encasing yourself in the stuff, just to be sure.

    The Fleshlight male sex toy is a portable, concealable, sturdy male masturbation device. The patented gel insert, made from Real Feel Super Skin, gives a feeling that is amazingly lifelike.

    It's tempting to grab your Fleshlight and just go at it, but a few moments of preparation can help you achieve a much more satisfying orgasm.

    Follow our tips for using your Fleshlight and you'll be enjoying knee-trembling ejaculation before you can say "Fast forward to the money shot!"

    Because latex is a natural, biodegradable material and it’s incredibly sensitive to oils, including the natural oils in your skin. Latex items can be expensive and become sentimental and if you're not careful with cleaning and storage, the next time you reach for your favourite latexwear it could have completely disintegrated.

    However, it’s really easy to keep your latex looking as good as new and ready to wear over and over again. All you need to do is make sure you wash and store your latex properly, and this guide explains precisely how to do it to prolong the life of your favourite pieces.
