1. It's safe to say that masturbation has gone hand-in-hand with Homo sapiens since the dawn of time. But after 200,000 years of palm-on-penis, maybe it's time for a rethink.

    Japanese sex toy company TENGA - established in Japan in 2006 by one Mr Matsumoto, a former mechanic - has certainly put a lot of effort into pioneering new ways of giving oneself a hand.

    We here at Lovehoney sell a variety of TENGA products to cater to all needs: the disposable Onacup, the easy-to-use but endlessly exciting Egg, the perfectly textured 3D masturbatorsand the hi-tech Flip Hole. Together, the TENGA arsenal is marketed as 'the future of masturbation'.

    Here's our guide to the revolution in autoeroticism, 200 millennia in the making.

    If you’ve never enjoyed the thrill of prostate play, then you’re missing out. Located a few inches inside the anus on the wall closest to the stomach, this internal erogenous zone is sometimes called the P-spot and massaging it can lead to explosive full-body orgasms, hands-free 'super O's and even multiple climaxes.

    Discovering your prostate gland isn’t that difficult but pleasuring it in a comfortable and erotic way takes a bit of time and skill. Luckily for you, there are plenty of tricks and toys available to help you discover this secret hot zone.

    When it comes to prostate toys, Aneros are leading the way. Their medically researched, designed and patented massagers have been specially created to stimulate the prostate gland, release prostate fluid and promote overall prostate health.

    Aneros started in America and quickly gathered a cult following as men learnt how to find, stimulate and love their prostate gland using the ergonomic massagers. With many noted health benefits, incredibly stimulating shapes and numerous positive reviews, the Aneros brand has become the top name in prostate toys, leading to demands for products from all over the globe.

    Not only can a penis enlargement pump deliver intense personal pleasure, it can get a man perfectly primed for bedroom action and increase length and girth - given time! A penis pump creates a vacuum over the penis to encourage blood flow and as the blood flow to the penis is increased, the erectile tissue expands, giving you a stronger erection.

    The tissue in your penis will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Pump once or twice a week and in 2 - 3 months you will see an increase to your flaccid penis size of up to 30 percent!

    Because latex is a natural, biodegradable material and it’s incredibly sensitive to oils, including the natural oils in your skin. Latex items can be expensive and become sentimental and if you're not careful with cleaning and storage, the next time you reach for your favourite latexwear it could have completely disintegrated.

    However, it’s really easy to keep your latex looking as good as new and ready to wear over and over again. All you need to do is make sure you wash and store your latex properly, and this guide explains precisely how to do it to prolong the life of your favourite pieces.

    Baffled by sex toys? Confused by cock rings? Want to know what a Wartenberg wheel is? Lovehoney's here to help.

    If you've ever wondered what a certain sex toy does and why people enjoy it then look no further, as Lovehoney's A-Z of sex toys explains it all.

    This is more than just a beginner's guide to sex toys. If you're at all curious about sex toys and want to expand your horizons you'll find this eye-opening list informative, with suggestions for further reading and toys to try out.

    If you like the look of shiny clothing, you may have already tried PVC or patent leather. The next step for many people is trying latex or rubber. You don't have to be a hardened fetishist or fashionista to try latex and this guide will help you choose the right size latex wear and explain how to put it on.

    Before you start: check that you do not have a latex allergy. Cut cheap latex gloves into strips and place them in various places against your skin (under a bra strap, inside a sock, inside a waistband) and, after an hour or two, check for any signs of irritation.

    You may be thinking; “But I've used condoms, I know I'm not allergic.” You should still patch test various parts of your body before encasing yourself in the stuff, just to be sure.

    Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.

    The key to shopping for sexy maternity lingerie is to choose something loose and flattering that won't start to feel uncomfortably tight as your baby grows. Comfort is important, so we recommend staying away from underwired or boned lingerie - save the lace-up corsets until after you give birth!

    It's a good idea to choose lingerie with adjustable straps and fastenings that allow you to change the fit as your baby grows. Something stretchy and flattering like the iCollection Cross Strap Babydoll with Lace Trim would be ideal.

    One size lingerie tends to have more of a stretch than regular sized clothing, meaning it expands for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. We've chosen some key pieces below that look great before, during and after pregnancy, helping you feel satisfied and sexy for the entire nine months.

    Lingerie shopping is tricky at the best of times. If you've tried and failed to find the perfect lingerie gift for your partner before, it can be tempting to write off the whole experience and stick with some flowers instead. Flowers are lovely, but most of us girls would like a present too. Oh, and some chocolate.

    If you're left jaded by the world of female undergarments (and not even our Guide to Lingerie Styles could help), then there's an easy solution you can try: the wonderful world of the One Size garment.

    These beauteous items of clothing are designed to fit and flatter most figures, making one size items as close to a dead cert as you can get.
