• Paralympics Sex and DisabilityLast week saw the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, and in true Olympic fashion, it blew us all away.

    But when the athletes aren't hard at work breaking records in track and field, they're busy breaking beds in the Olympic village, with nearly half a million condoms being distributed throughout both the Olympics and the Paralympics.

    Romantische Date Night

    You’ve found the dress, the caterer’s booked, and you’ve managed to tweak the seating plan so Aunt Betty isn’t sitting anywhere near Uncle Bob. But what about the honeymoon?

    We all know that the very word, ‘Honeymoon’ is synonymous with ‘humping like rabbits’, and no wonder.

    Traditionally used to refer to the month after the wedding (which many believed to be the 'sweetest period' of marriage), it was expected to be the time when the bride and groom developed both their physical and spiritual connection.

    Well, other than the fact the many people have now had some sexual experiences before their wedding night, little has changed. The honeymoon is viewed as one of the most passionate times of our lives, which is great - although it has a tendency to put a lot of pressure on sexual performance.

    Not to worry! To ensure your post-nuptial couplings go off without a hitch, here are eight nuggets of sexpert advice. It's time to start married life with a bang. Or several.

    Women's Equality Day

    As you may or may not know, today (August 26) is Women's Equality Day. With a historic election around the corner women's votes take on even more meaning for the future of our country.

    Women's Equality Day was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote.

    Today we seek to create a society where men and women are treated with equal respect and offered equal opportunities. At Lovehoney, we believe equality should extend to our relationships as well.

    So, the Lovehoney ladies have come up with 6 super helpful tips for women everywhere to feel self-assured and empowered both in and out of the bedroom.

    After all, the first ladies to vote wouldn't want it any other way. Read on for our expert advice, and don't forget to let us know how you keep things balanced when you can have it all.

    We're right in the middle of the hottest summer months, and though the sun may not always be around, the heat certainly is.

    But with the nights as sticky as they have been lately, it's not always that easy to get in the mood come bedtime.

    If you're anything like me, the evenings are more an experiment to see which combination of arms and legs flung outside the blanket keeps you coolest, rather than which combination of entwined limbs is most erotic.

    Luckily, though, there are ways to raise the raunch factor without raising the temperature. We've put together a hand-selected collection of summer-friendly toys, lingerie, and bondage gear to keep you looking and feeling your sexiest through the summer months.

    So whether you're getting steamy in Seattle, sizzling in San Francisco, or fiery in Phoenix, just read on to see our sultry summer treats.

    lipstick-vibrator

    Guess what, it's July 29th, and that means it's National Lipstick Day!

    From the classic bright red to the humble nude gloss, millions of women love to add a slick of lippy to complete any outfit.

    But did you know that the primary reason we started wearing lipstick almost 5,000 years ago was because we wanted the lips on our face to look more like another pair of lips?

    During arousal, a woman's labia and vulva become flushed and turn a dark red, increasing sensation and preparing the body for sex.

    So, to celebrate this staple that's found in many a woman's purse, we take a look at six things every sexually-liberated woman should carry with her.

    Perfect for keeping you comfortable and safe as well as entertained, these super-discreet essentials will keep you prepared for every sexual encounter, be it with a lover, or a sneaky ménage à mois.

    vegan sex toys

    Here at Lovehoney we're committed to being as ethical as possible, which is why we make sure to offer a range of vegan-friendly lubricants, sex toys and lingerie.

    Getting more fruits and veggies in your diet is never a bad idea, although we're pretty sure the Rocks Off Ass Berry Vibrating Butt Plug (pictured here) isn't what your nutritionist has in mind.

    A vegetarian diet doesn't only make you healthier, it can also improve your sex life, according to a 2012 study by the University of California, Berkeley.

    It could be time to ditch the animal products once and for all.

    Check out some of our favorite ethical products below, and we'd love for you to share your vegan sex tips in the comments below.

    The warmer weather has arrived, and with it, the usual summer flocks of brides and grooms. We all love weddings, as they give us a chance to celebrate our friends' most memorable days.

    However, the downside is that your calendar is filled with bridal showers and bachelorette parties. Parties mean gifts, and bridal gifts often mean safe, boring, or impersonal presents.

    Traditionally, gifts were meant to help the happy couple set up their new homes, except nowadays quite a few couples already live together.

    With Lovehoney, it is super simple to spice up a monotonous gathering or make sure that the bride-to-be gets a little something for herself, so here are some ideas to guide you through this wedding season.
