    How to Have Shower Sex (That Beats Going Out)

    Sex in the bath or shower is a curiosity for many, and a 'would highly recommend it' for others. There's just something about getting down and dirty with a partner while getting clean at the same time.

    However, if you've ever lived in shared accommodation then you're aware that access to the bathroom, and a clean one at that, can be limited at best. Don't let your living situation be a limit to your sex life, though!

    Previously our bloggers have covered How to Masturbate Without Anyone Knowing; given the echo of the bathroom and the splashing that can come with it, it seems that discreet sex in the bathroom is an impossibility.

    But where there is a will(y), there is a way, and by the end of this, you'll know just how to have mind-blowing sex in the bathroom.

    happy rabbit study 2018

    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?...

    Magic wands for men

    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.

    Fifty Shades of Grey was the global erotica phenomenon that launched author E L James to international heights.

    The adventures of Anastasia and Christian Grey had audiences gripping their seats and getting hot under the collar for years, and even spawned 3 blockbuster movies starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

    To celebrate the release of E L James' newest erotic offering, The Mister, 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.

    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!

    Which Vibrator Gives the Fastest Orgasms?

    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!
