1. Position of the Week: Crossed Lovers

    Halloween-Searches

    Remember when we shared our 101 Funniest Sex Toy Searches with you back in March?

    Well, now that October 31st is creeping closer and closer, we thought we'd do a Halloween version.

    There have been over 600,000 unique terms typed into the search box on our website in the past year.

    And some of them are a little... strange.

    "Handcoffins"? Sorry, we don't sell those (and we're a bit frightened)!

    Here are 54 of the scariest searches we found.

    Happy Halloween!

    ways to enjoy your wand

    If you’ve not yet got your hands on a wand, there’s time! Head on over to our top 10 guide to find out which wand is best for you.

    If you are the proud owner of a powerful wand vibe, congratulations. We’re sure you’ve powered it up and played with all the settings, but do you know how to use it to its full potential?

    We’ve put together a handy guide to help you soar to orgasmic heights with your toy, time after time.

    Clitoral Stimulation

    When the majority of women find it easiest to climax clitorally, it's no wonder our customers are so fond of clit-specific vibrators.

    Amazingly, the clitoris has over 8000 nerve endings just waiting to be stimulated, and a clitoral vibe is an excellent way of accessing more parts of it - and generating multiple orgasms!

    If you haven't already got one in your artillery, take a look at our top 10 guide to find out which vibe is best for you.

    Read on to find out what else these wonder-toys can do.

    What is Foreplay?

    Generally, foreplay is known as ‘sexual activity during the lead up to sex’ or ‘things that get you in the mood’.

    But what is sex and why doesn’t it include the lead up?

    When does foreplay end and sex begin?

    Foreplay can mean lots of different things to different people, so I’ll be covering what falls into the ‘generic foreplay’ category, how creating different categories of sexual acts can be damaging, my own definition of foreplay and when I think it should happen (hint – it’s not always before!).

    Often, when the term 'foreplay' gets thrown around, it's sold as ‘something that comes before "actual" sex’ (i.e. a penis penetrating a vagina – thanks heteronormative school sex-ed). So for a long time, I assumed it to be kissing, cuddling and hands/mouth on genitals.

    I know this experience isn't uncommon, and I know that to a lot of people, that's what foreplay is.
