Too kinky to talk about, too extreme to shop for and definitely a private indulgence, yet the majority of couples have tried it. So what is it we're trying to keep so secret?
Well, the answer is bondage play. Even with well-known BDSM pioneers like Bettie Page and Irving Klaw blazing the trail, it's remained a taboo topic for decades.
The good news is opinions have begun to change. Books like Fifty Shades of Grey have made tie-and-tease play accessible to a wider audience and enabled even more couples to fulfill their bondage fantasies.
Nowadays there's a huge choice of products available for testing the sub/Dom domain, but what about products for those who want to take their BDSM play to the next level?
We're excited to announce that Lovehoney have just launched DOMINIX, the deluxe range of bondage equipment suitable for all your professional and recreational S&M requirements!
Read on to find out what makes this collection so luxurious, and why you should be shopping right now!
If you've watched any of our product demo videos at Lovehoney TV, you'll recognize Annabelle Knight. She is also a model featured within our product pages. After years of first hand experience showing off sex toys for Lovehoney.com, and months of development, Lovehoney presents Annabelle's own line of vibrators!
Annabelle put her extensive knowledge to work to design four products with her signature style. This new range of couple-friendly vibes includes a classic vibrator, a G-spot vibe, a love egg, and stylish vibrating knickers.
"I adore my new collection of toys! They're sexy, stylish and elegant, and won't break the bank. I've tried to provide something for everyone and spent many an hour fretting over the design and functions to make sure you get the best from them!" - Annabelle
Annabelle developed these vibrators with all different kinds of women in mind. Designed with beauty and purpose - meaning there's something for everyone.

Bondage has never been so hot - just check out the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, or Britney's new video to see why!
Here at Lovehoney.com, we love supplying our customers with the best in bondage - and we've now made it even easier to choose the right products.
Before now, all of the bondage gear - from ball gags to blindfolds - were categorized under sex toys.
Our recent revamp, however, has created a brand new Bondage section, which has everything you need to tie and tease your lover.
In the new section you can find:
This change makes it much easier to sort our bondage products by color, price and even material, which makes sure you find exactly want you're looking for. So, whether or not you know how to wield a whip, you should have no problem shopping for beginner or expert bondage equipment.
Take a look at our new Bondage section now, and let us know what you think.
About a decade ago I was Bettie Page for Halloween. I wore a black wig with bangs, a cherry print dress, bondage wrist cuffs, and knee socks. My friend was Madonna from the "Human Nature" video so we shared a crop.
Since I've been a fan of Bettie Page for at least that long, I'm delighted to share with you the gorgeous and brand-spanking-new Official Bettie Page Pleasure Collection, available exclusively at Lovehoney.com.
Bettie Page is the original BDSM pinup icon. This new range of products inspired by her body of work brings the retro feel right into your hands. Britney is even taking a page from Bettie's book with her recent super sexy S&M themed "Work B**ch" video.
Now you have two bombshell worthy crops to choose from: The Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sting Riding Crop (Britney's choice), or the black Bettie Page Teasearama Leather Riding Crop, an instant classic.
Take a look at more from the new Bettie Page Official Pleasure Collection below. Perfect for re-enacting scenes from pop music videos to vintage fetish clips.
