If you're not sure where to start - and we know there's a massive range of vibrators to choose from - then this guide breaks down the process to make sure you choose the perfect vibe for you.
The best way to start is to think about about how you're going to use your vibe. For example, if you want something for internal stimulation pay close attention to shape and movement of the toy. If you're looking for external clitoral stimulation, consider whether you might prefer a vibe made from squishy or hard material.
If you want stronger stimulation, check out our extra powerful vibrators. However, if noise levels are more important to you than power, look for something that's labelled as extra quiet. When you've got an idea of how you'd like to use your vibrator and what's important for you, we'll show you how to choose a vibrator that's going to tick all your boxes.
Many of our first-time anal sex experiences are accidental or ill prepared for at best, giving a poor first-time impression of all things anally sexual. Many couples don’t tend to talk about anal play and as individuals, we’re often quick to write it off, especially if we’ve had a bad experience in the past.
These self-imposed taboos mean that scores of us are missing out on the joy of anal sex and the pleasure that both men and women experience through anal penetration.
This first-time anal sex guide will talk you through anal experimentation and anal penetration, helping you to progressively experiment both alone, with a partner or with anal sex toys to achieve a satisfying anal sex life.
But if you're not sure where to start with choosing a vibrator, this guide will teach you how to tell a bullet from a butterfly vibe and everything in between, and help you choose the vibrators that will best enhance masturbation and sex with your partner.
Your nipples are two of the most sensitive and reactive parts of your body and it's well worth lavishing some extra attention on them during foreplay and sex.
Above: If you're thinking "forget how to use nipple clamps, why would I want to?!" just watch this video. Our resident bondage expert, Jess Wilde, gives you the low-down on all things nippy, including the lesser-known nipplegasm!
A recent study used an MRI scanner to show that stimulation of the nipples arouses the sensory cortex in a woman’s brain and in turn, arouses the genitals. Pretty cool. It’s also thought that approximately 1% of women can achieve an orgasm through nipple stimulation alone.
If your nipples aren’t receiving the attention they deserve, then investing in a sex toy designed for use on the nipples will help you experiment with different sensations. From gentle nipple suckers to sturdy nipple clamps which give you a firm but pleasant pinch, there are an enormous amount of nipple toys on the market and we’re here to guide you through all the options available
For most people the words "electricity" and "genitalia" should never be combined. We have all been told since a very young age that electricity is dangerous and that if we come into contact with it, it will kill us. Whilst we don't advise that you climb into a power station for sexual thrills, it is possible to safely and harmlessly enjoy electro sex.
Electro sex is a way of stimulating the genitals and erogenous zones with a safe amount of electrical energy. The human body is mostly made of water so is an excellent conductor of this electricity.
By applying a sex toy or conductive pad to the body, electricity can pass through the nerve cells creating pulsing, almost vibrating kinds of sensations.
Nearly every games console now comes with wireless controllers so you can enjoy the fun without the limitations of wires! Similarly, sex toys have been following suit with the release of numerous new wireless remote control vibrators.
So exercise that trigger finger on something more rewarding and find out why everyone should have a remote control vibe in their bedside drawer.
These remote control vibrators are Lovehoney customer favourites:
If you live with others or have thin walls, then a near-silent vibrator is probably the only way to let go, relax and enjoy yourself.
However, don’t think that you need to sacrifice power for the sake of sound. Lovehoney has tried and tested a range of toys, and carefully selected the quietest to go in our Extra Quiet Vibrators section.
