    Oh Joy, Sex ToyIf you've been following us here in the Lovehoney.com blog and on social media you've probably seen us sending mad love over to Erika Moen's newest project Oh Joy, Sex Toy. We were recently inspired once again by Lucy Bellwood's guest post about Rope Bondage, see it in its entirety at OhJoySexToy.com.

    Erika Moen is doing wonderful things over at this new site and we are loving every moment of it. You can read more about what inspires Moen and the adult product review comic/blog/strip at Autostraddle.com.

    According to the interview, Moen's journey to Oh Joy, Sex Toy includes half of her life drawing comics, a stint on reality tv and advice from her mentor, Robert Khoo. He helped her realize her audience of "dicks and vaginas" and create something truly magical and extremely satisfying.

    Check out Lucy's comic to start your journey into the wonderful world of rope bondage and enjoy our suggestions below. Make sure you stay tuned to Oh Joy, Sex Toy and here in the Lovehoney blog.

    Fifty Shades of Grey Ben Wa BallsWe've seen a quite a few articles lately bringing attention to a bit of confusion surrounding the use of Ben Wa Balls, aka Kegel Balls or Jiggle Balls.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to dispel some myths in the hope that we can all have better experiences when trying these diverse and functional sex toys.

    Kegel exercises are great for sexual health. The popularity of Kegel and Ben Wa Balls has been on the rise since Fifty Shades of Grey hit the shelves, making it essential that we have the information needed to use these balls properly.

    To help expand your Ben Wa Balls knowledge base, we're giving one lucky reader the opportunity to win a pair of Fifty Shades of Grey Delicious Pleasure Silicone Ben Wa Balls. Just add your comment below before June 21st for a chance to win.

    A happy customer explains: "The difference from these and other workout balls is that they are more luxurious, the Mercedes of Kegel balls... Also, they are easy to remove and easily cleaned!"

    With a database of over 50,000 reviews (and growing!), we know that real customer reviews help you decide which is the best product for you - and if you're happy, we're happy.

    Reviews need to be helpful and descriptive, but most importantly, they should be honest - it's ok to say you didn't like a product. Read more about how to write a winning sex toy review.

    Every month, we choose our favorite review to win a huge $150 to spend at Lovehoney, and runners up receive 2,000 Oh! Points to spend or save.

    S&S was the winner this month with a helpful review of Lovehoney Release Masturbation Lubricant. We loved his enthusiasm and how he pointed out the differences between this lube and similar products:

    "We learned quickly that a little goes a LONG way! I had the missus, ahem, 'assist' me with the first use, and she required just a small amount in the palm of her hand to get us started. She used enough to coat the head of my penis nicely, and we were amazed that this was all that we needed. At no point did we need to add more lube, something which we usually have to do when using something like KY Jelly or Maximus - a very impressive feat!" Read the full review by S&S.

    Dreamgirl Pink Diamond Long Sleeved Sheer ChemiseStar Trek Into Darkness recently showed up in theaters, and we've been inspired by the futuristic fashions.

    For the ladies, characteristic Star Trek uniforms include color blocked tops, shiny form-fitting mini dresses, sleek pants and catsuits.

    Devoted fans have been replicating the futuristic fashions since the first episodes of the classic TV show aired.

    We've found some super sexy styles that would fit right in to your next space traveling role-play. It's time to boldly go from starships to modern cities and beyond.

    In contrast to the standard sleek and fetish friendly catsuit you might expect, futuristic lingerie, dresses and leggings are comfortable enough to wear all day and night.

    My Name is Karen... and I'm a Swinger

    My name is Karen. I am a mother in my 30's in a committed relationship and I am a swinger.

    I know the word swinger brings all sorts of things to mind. Swinging may not be something that is the majority, but I have met swingers from all walks of life: doctors, nurses, real estate agents, IT geeks, retail workers, hairstylists, HR staff, engineers, convenience store workers... you name it.

    Swinging is consensual sex with others with permission while being in a committed relationship.

    Swinging is not cheating. Swinging is not like polyamory.

    There are no emotional entanglements when we hook-up with others outside of the relationship. It is just sex.

    Tenga Red Flip HoleMay is Masturbation Month! Even though we like to celebrate and promote masturbation all twelve months of the year, we'd like to highlight some of the best masturbation and sex toy news in honor of taking a whole month to really focus on celebrating self-love of a sexual kind.

    We started out the month highlighting the Sex Positive Photo Project's "I Masturbate..." Which takes a look at images of a diverse group of people embracing the way they masturbate, breaking down shame around self pleasure and showing the beauty of masturbation from the individual's perspective with the photographer as silent observer, telling the stories of the subject, rather than an object, in Shilo Mccabe's photos.

    Read on to find out how Masturbation Month is celebrated around the world, learn more about some of our favorite solo sex toys, and you could even win a new sex toy to enhance masturbation all year long.

    One lucky reader will win a TENGA Red Flip Hole Male Masturbator. Just comment below and you could be enjoying this sleek male masturbator very soon!
