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.
We have reached that exciting time once again, with our popular Review of the Month giveaway!
Every month, one lucky reviewer is rewarded with a $150 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything they like, right here on Lovehoney. This time, crazy couple have popped their review cherry by inviting a monster into the bedroom in the form of Lovehoney's Mega Mighty 3 Extra Inches Penis Extender. From the sound of it, this one is very welcome under the bed, in the wardrobe, or wherever you usually find your fantastic beasts!
"I followed the guide of plenty of lube (on me and inside the sleeve), squeezed the air out and let it suck me in. I have to say, it felt pretty bloody impressive holding this in my hand and there is no doubt from the guy's angle it makes you feel like a well hung porn star! It felt very comfortable and a few strokes confirmed that it does feel less sensitive than just my hand, which was the goal." Read the full review here.
Well done, crazy couple, we hope to read more from you soon!
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.

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.

Ever since it was released last week, Pokémon GO has all but taken over the world.
From Lickitungs in the park, to Grimers in church and Squirtles in the convenience store, fans both young and old have been discovering the joys of Pokémon hunting in the real world, thanks to GPS technology and an incredibly addictive free-to-play app.
Released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original games (and boy, does that make me feel old), Pokémon GO has dominated the headlines, with people finding these weird and wonderful Pocket Monsters in the most bizarre places imaginable.
So given that we want Lovehoney to be the very best (like no one ever was) we set off into our sex toy warehouse to find out which Pokémon could be lurking among the toys.
We're just glad we didn't catch any Krabbies.

Hot off the press this month and walking away with that sweet, sweet prize is one of our most regular reviewers, Shadow Collector, with her account of the Bondage Boutique Extreme Wrapped Rattan Cane.

Incredibly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, teddies and bodysuits have recently seen a resurgence.
Fashion bloggers are tucking them into high-waisted shorts, celebs are flashing them on the red carpet, and tons of stores are once again stocking them on the shelves.
But while the fashion world is going crazy for teddies as outerwear, many of us are still reluctant to wear them as sexy lingerie - a fact that we found curious, as there are some truly stunning bedroom bodysuits out there.
We took to the forums to ask our customers about their reservations when it comes to the all-in-one, and some of the answers we received may surprise you...
Read on below to see the most common bodysuit dilemmas, and our top tips for how to find the perfect one piece for your body.
July 1st has arrived, and with it, the Canada Day celebrations!
That's right, it's time for parades, parties, and festivities galore, all marking the enactment of the Constitution Act that created Canada in 1867.
But the celebrations needn't stop at the front door. Make sure you and your lover are marking the holiday in a much more private (but equally exciting) way with this hand-picked selection of the finest red and white offerings from Lovehoney.
So, whether you're in need of a fun and colorful new toy, a sultry new boudoir outfit, or a bolder and brighter new addition to your bondage collection, we're sure to have just the thing...
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that meter maid who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practices that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.
