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.
Take a look at the new Bettie Page Official Pleasure Collection below. Perfect for re-enacting scenes from pop music videos to vintage fetish clips.
Tantus is the largest producer of silicone sex toys in America, and the company has a very special relationship with everyone they come into contact with. Once you've bought your first Tantus sex toy you'll want another and another.
Why do we love Tantus silicone sex toys and dildos?
Premium quality silicone. Offering much more than quality silicone dildos, Tantus creates toys for all different body parts and experience levels. The Tantus Silicone Cock Sling Ring (pictured left) is a great example.
Gorgeous color, size and shape options. Tantus offers exceptional strap on sets, butt plugs, dildos, double dildos and now paddles too, in almost every style and color imaginable.

There's been a lot of talk lately about the differences between real world sex and porn sex. The video below illustrated just that, with food, and it went viral instantly.
With this renewed buzz around real sex and "feminist" porn, many women in the industry have been working hard, changing the way porn looks and the ways we look at porn.
How about some real sex on TV? A new British show called Sex Box will have real live couples having real live sex on TV.
These pioneering folks in the industry are speaking up, taking control, and making porn and erotica hotter than ever, because it's real!
We received so many great user-uploaded reviews in September that it was hard work picking just one winner for our Review of the Month competition.
However, Lovehoney customer rose hip's informative review of the Blush Lux Femina Glass and SIlicone Kegel Exercisors stood out, and so we're pleased to give her the top prize of $150 to spend at Lovehoney.com.
By comparing the kegel exercisors to other jiggle balls in her collection and describing the best way to use them, we think her review makes great reading for anyone looking for intermediate Ben Wa balls.
She says: "Even more points for the quality of design and materials. The silicone is smooth, soft and lovely to touch. The seam is so faint that a modern-day story teller could forego small vegetables and ask his princess to prove her delicate nature by noticing it or the tiny dimple in the glass."

This month's winner reviewed the Pin Ups Betty Bombshell Balm in Cherry. We loved her enthusiasm and helpful tips about using the orgasm balm to get in the mood.
She notes: "I wasn't expecting this balm to do much, what with my one week refractory period and all. I was wrong. It instantly tingled on application, and a warmth spread through the area which made me instantly aroused. Blood was flowing to the area, my clit was throbbing… I was getting horny, whether my stupid brain chemistry liked it or not!"

I once had a friend tell me that her grandmother used to say that if she touched herself in her "special lady area" her hand would fall off.
"I mean, they should be promoting masturbation, not bashing it," my pal said. "It’s not like my fingers are going to get me knocked up!"
I couldn’t agree more. In fact, there are a whole lot of great reasons to get it on with yourself. Here are 10 of my top picks.
