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!
Whether you read them each in one sitting or skipped straight to the naughty bits, few erotic books have made as much of an impact as the Fifty Shades of Grey series.
Did you bite your lip in solidarity with Ana when she first encountered Christian in his Seattle office?
Maybe you aspire to have your very own Red Room, just like the mercurial billionaire.
Millions of people around the world have followed the erotic adventures of Ana Steele and Christian Grey over the last 6 years – and many of them have picked up a few tips along the way.
With the new film out right now, we thought we'd share the 8 things we've learnt from the Fifty Shades books.
Don't forget to let us know yours in the comments below!
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.

Moving out of home is a huge step. You leave creature comforts behind and take on many new responsibilities.
You learn that electricity is not free, water is not free, Netflix is not free. Essentially, once you move out, life is about discovering that more and more things are not free.
But along with these adult responsibilities, there are several massive perks. One such perk is that you can now buy any type of sex toy you desire.
This is because no one in your shared house will go in your room while you are out, pick up your dirty clothes, hoover under your bed and come face to face with a massive dildo.
I've put together a list of the best sex toys to try now that you have flown the nest. My criteria for selecting these was: if a family member found this, could you talk your way out of it?
If the answer was "not a chance", it went on my list.
For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to B&Q than something a lot more pleasurable.
However, 'doing it yourself' shouldn't just be reserved for trying to whip up a shelf with the ease of Nick Knowles on DIY SOS.
During the middle of any stressful period, I can't be the only who could do with a bit of help trying to relax after those long days, and unfortunately, giving up some of our precious time to have some fun with somebody else just isn't a priority.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't find some of that sexual happiness by ourselves.
If, like me, you'd benefit from a low-maintenance helping hand to put a smile on your face, have a look at four fabulous toys that are fit for the job.
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.

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…
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!
Check out the collection of hard rockin' vibes below:
