1. Friendly Fingers

    The season of giving is around the corner, and the time to give thanks for the things that make us (sexually) happy is upon us.

    This year, I wanted to indulge in our great American tradition of sharing something we are thankful for with our family and friends - you guys - this time around with a Lovehoney twist.

    At Lovehoney locations around the world we are all eternally thankful to our fearless leaders, Richard and Neal, for their thoughtful creation of our home base for sexual happiness, award-winning customer service and an unprecedented satisfaction guarantee. Without them none of us would be here doing the work that we love.

    We are so very thankful for the fun products, sex toys and lingerie enjoyed by our customers, but, ultimately, we're most thankful for all of you.

    Read on to see the products that make us say thank you, oh oH OH THANK YOUuuu, from Bath in the UK, to Brisbane in AU, to right here in the good old USA.

    We've all been there - things are heating up, skin is caressing skin, a partner's breath dancing on your neck, a gentle touch sending your spine ablaze with wonderful shivers…

    And then it all goes a bit daft.

    We'll say it time and time again, sex is ridiculous and we should embrace that, but every now and then the throes of passion are interrupted by an 'oops' moment that can leave you groaning, and not in the good way.

    Here are our top picks of the silliest sex mistakes we all make!

    How to Get What You Want From a One Night Stand

    Sex with no strings attached can leave you feeling liberated, confident and deeply satisfied. However, it does also have the potential to go… a little less than well.

    Personally, I like to think of a one-night stand as a film sequel. It can be 200 minutes of intense, life-changing passion, much like The Godfather Part II.

    It's also possible that you'll want to erase the entire evening from your memory, which is what I wanted to do after watching Grease 2.

    So, in order to make sure that your one-night stand doesn't turn into a Mean Girls 2-style one-night flop, I've picked out 4 important things that you need to remember.

    Remember, to have a successful one-night stand: be S.E.X.Y.

    joan price lovehoney lingerie

    I honestly love opportunities to connect amazing people - over the years I've befriended a few - to other amazing people for amazing results.

    Earlier this summer, I was discussing Lovehoney Lingerie with two equally remarkable folks separately, Joan Price, author and educator, and Perry Gallagher, skilled erotic photographer.

    When Joan suggested a photo shoot to feature the lingerie, light bulbs started flashing. With just a little bit of magic, a few dozen emails, and some creative coordinating of schedules, we were able to connect them both to create these amazing photos of Joan, at the ripe age of 72, in some of Lovehoney's wildly popular lingerie styles.

    With one word, I think we can all agree the result is nothing short of inspirational.

    Get the lingerie featured here: Lovehoney Flaunt Me Floral Lace Robe, Lovehoney Flirty Underwired Black Plunge Bra, Lovehoney Flirty Black Lace and Mesh Panties, Lovehoney Tempt Me Pink Dot Mesh Bra, and Lovehoney Spoil Me Satin Plum Babydoll Set.

    With Halloween sneaking up on us fast, many of us around the world are turning our thoughts to which mind-blowing costume we should be donning for the big night.
