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.
So, to celebrate this staple that's found in many a woman's purse, we take a look at six things every sexually-liberated woman should carry with her.
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.
For the last few weeks we've been running about like mad, filming all kinds of new and exciting videos for our new-look Youtube channel.
And now, we're super happy that we can show you what we've been working on!
As well as our cheeky new TV advert (which is only showing in the UK at the moment, but you can see it online here), our three in-house sexperts, Sammi, Tilly, and Jess, will be posting brand-new vlogs each and every week.
Every Monday, Sammi will be talking all things lingerie, while on Thursdays, set sail with Tilly for a brand new episode of Sex Toys Ahoy, and join Jess for a lesson in all things kink on Bondage Gone Wilde each Friday.
For more information on what kind of things you can expect to see, just read on.

Here at Lovehoney we're committed to being as ethical as possible, which is why we make sure to offer a range of vegan-friendly lubricants, sex toys and lingerie.
Getting more fruits and veggies in your diet is never a bad idea, although we're pretty sure the Rocks Off Ass Berry Vibrating Butt Plug (pictured here) isn't what your nutritionist has in mind.
A vegetarian diet doesn't only make you healthier, it can also improve your sex life, according to a 2012 study by the University of California, Berkeley.
It could be time to ditch the animal products once and for all.
Check out some of our favorite ethical products below, and we'd love for you to share your vegan sex tips in the comments below.
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.
Please enjoy this guest post from Canadian blogger Rebecca, also known as one half of A Couple of Kinks. Let the wedding season commence! -Krista
The warmer weather has arrived, and with it, the usual summer flocks of brides and grooms. We all love weddings, as they give us a chance to celebrate our friends' most memorable days.
However, the downside is that your calendar is filled with bridal showers and bachelorette parties. Parties mean gifts, and bridal gifts often mean safe, boring, or impersonal presents.
Traditionally, gifts were meant to help the happy couple set up their new homes, except nowadays quite a few couples already live together.
With Lovehoney, it is super simple to spice up a monotonous gathering or make sure that the bride-to-be gets a little something for herself, so here are some ideas to guide you through this wedding season.

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.
