A recent medical study in the US has changed the direction of intimate pleasure for women, demonstrating that super-strength orgasms may be available in real life, not just the movies.
Conducted by neuroscientist Dr Nicole Prause, founder of sexual biotechnology firm Liberos, the purpose of the scientific study was to test the effectiveness of the updated happy rabbit® versus manual stimulation.
19 women to date, with an average age of 31 and a wide range of racial and age diversity, have been tested. Each of the women visited the lab twice under strict lab conditions – once to use a happy rabbit® vibrator, and the other to masturbate using their hands.
And what did Dr Prause discover?...
Forget dogs, wands are man’s best friend.
Women have known the wonderful benefits of a wand for decades, ever since Hitachi’s Magic Wand found itself serving a new purpose in the bedrooms of women all over the world. The deep vibrations are incredible for external clitoral stimulation, a discovery more stimulating than alternating current.
But it’s only seemingly recently that men are coming (eheh) to find the wand’s magical uses for themselves.
From dealing with post-gym aches, to being a veritable partner-pleaser, having a wand in your possession can transform the way you live your life.
Here are just a few of the reasons you need a wand.
Even if your book club tends to finish more bottles of wine than books, at some point there's probably been a page-turner none of you have wanted to put down.
But we bet your book club is nothing like the one in the upcoming movie of the same name...
Starring Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda, Book Club follows a group of friends whose lives are totally transformed while reading E L James's erotic phenomenon, Fifty Shades of Grey.
To celebrate the release of the film, we asked you to indulge in some Red Room-inspired revelry of your own (with the help of a few sexy toys and accessories from our official Fifty Shades range) then tell us all about it.
And it turns out you had plenty to say! Here are a few highlights from your thwack-by-thwack accounts.
Book Club opens in movie theatres today.
Not only is April 21st Lovehoney's 16th Birthday, it's also Sexual Happiness Day, a celebration of the billions of benefits of amazing sex.
16 years ago, we sold our very first sex toy (it was a rabbit vibrator, in case you're curious), and ever since then we've done our darndest to fill your sex lives with pleasure, experimentation and, most importantly, more fun than you can shake a suction cup dildo at.
Like all good birthdays, we're making ours last a whole week, which means amazing offers on bestselling sex toys every single day.
And if that wasn't enough, here are 7 ways to put a sexy spring in your step this week.
Ever gazed at your favourite vibrator and wondered what generous genius dreamt up its magical shape and amazing orgasm-giving powers?
Where would we be without our favourite setting, the speed we know will skyrocket us to orgasm, and the toy we keep on standby by our bedside?
From its very basic beginnings in Joseph Granville's doctor's surgery, to the flashy, bells-and-whistles varieties we now know and love, no sex toy has a more colourful history than the wand vibrator.
We've delved into our X-rated history book to bring you the edited highlights. Enjoy!
We've all been there. You wake up from an erotic dream that's left you tingling all over. It would be a shame to 'waste' such incredible imagery – but you've got to be dressed and out the door in ten minutes.
A scenario like this is my own personal DEFCON 3. What you need in times like this, ladies, is a super-speedy orgasm - and to get one, I highly recommend that you reach for a vibrator.
Perfect for novices as well as experts, vibrators come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. They're a fun, non-intimidating sex toy and they're easy to use. However, trying to decide which one will make your toes curl in record time can feel overwhelming.
Luckily, Lovehoney has got you covered. The Sexual Happiness People set out to uncover which vibrator gives the fastest orgasms. The world's luckiest guinea pig? It was me.
Hey, it's a tough job but someone's got to do it!

Finally: Fifty Shades Freed has been released in cinemas! Woohoo!
The third film based on E L James' best-selling erotic novels that brought BDSM to the masses, it stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Ana Steele and Christian Grey as they take the next step in their relationship.
For those who've seen Fifty Shades Darker, you'll hopefully know what we mean by that. For those who haven't well, quite frankly, what are you playing at?
Fans of the franchise have eagerly anticipated the cinematic interpretation of Fifty Shades Freed, with its even more intense storyline and super-steamy sex scenes - and, let us tell you, it doesn't disappoint!
So - in the name of research, of course - we sat through two torturous hours of topless
Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson and goosebump-making sex scenes to pick out which sex toys you can use to recreate Freed at home.
You're so welcome.
