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.
That's exactly what we've done to select a winner for Review of The Month: a competition that rewards your raunchy writing skills with a $150 Lovehoney voucher.
Hot off the press this month and walking away with that sweet, sweet prize is one of our most regular reviewers, Shadow Collector, with her account of the Bondage Boutique Extreme Wrapped Rattan Cane. This community member is certainly steaming up her S&M antics, adding to the continuum theory of pain and pleasure. Whether pain is your pleasure or not, we "cane" certainly believe that this is hers.
"This beautifully simple cane was the toy that took my S&M playtime from lukewarm to Jalapeño hot. Every detail, from the flawlessly smooth plastic coating to the springy and unforgiving rattan shaft works seamlessly together to deliver delicious agony with minimum effort.” Read the full review here.
Congratulations, Shadow Collector, and enjoy your prize!
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.
July 1st has arrived, and with it, the Canada Day celebrations!
That's right, it's time for parades, parties, and festivities galore, all marking the enactment of the Constitution Act that created Canada in 1867.
But the celebrations needn't stop at the front door. Make sure you and your lover are marking the holiday in a much more private (but equally exciting) way with this hand-picked selection of the finest red and white offerings from Lovehoney.
So, whether you're in need of a fun and colorful new toy, a sultry new boudoir outfit, or a bolder and brighter new addition to your bondage collection, we're sure to have just the thing…
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that meter maid who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practices that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

"This vibrator actually blew me across the bed. Seriously. I went from one corner to the opposite. Yes, you did read the first line correctly. This toy actually made my body leap across the bed.
