November has arrived. Are you seeing baby mustaches everywhere you look? Yes, it's MOvember which means it's PROvember too!
The brainchild of Lucas Brooks, PROvember is a sexual health and pleasure focused project inspired by the MOvember movement, which began back in 2003. Since then, it's been prompting mustaches and bringing attention to prostate and testicular cancers and health concerns.
As a seasoned sex educator, Lucas wondered, "How many of these men actually know how to care for their prostates? The methods are quite easy, and often quite pleasurable! It makes me sad to see prostates neglected." You know here at Lovehoney we couldn't agree more.
I got in touch with Lucas to find out how we can help spread the word. Do you know how pleasurable taking care of your prostate can be? Read our interview below and check out some of Lucas' top prostate toy recommendations to try for yourself:
We've joined forces with rock legends Motörhead to create an explosive pleasure collection with their iconic band logo and hard rock vibe.
The Motörhead Official Pleasure Collection is now available right here at Lovehoney.com.
The four classic and bullet vibrators deliver the power and fun that fans expect from "the loudest band on earth".
Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford says: "The collection reflects the rock and roll lifestyle of the band perfectly and the vibes are twice as powerful as comparable vibrators on the market - They really rock."
Motörhead are one of the biggest rock bands in the world, with 22 studio albums and countless hit singles including, Ace of Spades and Overkill - the namesakes of their vibrators.
After selling over 20 million albums and having lead singer Lemmy honored on Maxim's list of sex legends, vibrators were a natural next step.
Motörhead's 69-year-old lead singer and self-professed Sex God, Lemmy Kilmister put it this way: "One of the songs on our debut album was called Vibrator so we had to have our own one day, right?!"
It really was meant to be!
