But it's not an excuse to give up on romance.
Call us old softies, but love, intimacy and romance is the strawberry-flavored lube that makes the world go around. It's essential for our mental and physical health (and it gives us the warm and fuzzies).
During quarantine, we challenge you to show your lover the best time they can have between four walls. We've compiled 8 quarantine date ideas perfect for passing the time and lighting your fire.
From virtual date nights, to romantic date ideas (including romantic bedroom plans) we've got dates to suit every occasion.
Everyone has a butthole and that butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings, meaning everyone – no matter your age or sexual orientation – can find joy in anal play. Go a bit deeper, and you could stimulate the sensation highway that is your pudendal nerve (which also connects to your most sensitive sexy areas), or, if you have a penis, the pleasure centre that is the prostate. Hey, with practice, you might even be able to enjoy an anal orgasm.
There are many different types of anal toys and while you might be aching to jump headfirst into exploring them, due to where the anus is and what it does, it's essential to prep properly and ease yourself in (especially if it's your first time).
Read on to discover our top tips for using toys for anal play in the most pleasurable way possible.

Let's face it, we're all going a bit stir-crazy during this unprecedented and drawn-out period of staying at home. Home improvements have been attempted, baking triumphs (and heroic fails) have been executed; and we've all sat glassy-eyed through endless boxsets.
But when you and your partner (if you're lucky enough to be living with them right now) have done it every which way in the bedroom to pass the time, the question may now be: 'Which other places can we have sex in the house?'

When someone says “erogenous zones” to you (and we’re hoping in the right context, not while you’re shopping for eggs), which places do you tend to think of?
Chances are, it’s your between-me-down-theres first, then nipples, or anus, or that one particular spot that your partner found behind your knee once and you’ve been trying to rediscover ever since.
But the truth is, we’re covered in erogenous zones - sensitive areas of the body that can make us feel aroused, or even bring us to orgasm - and finding out which ones work for you can be a whole lot of fun. Not to mention a great way to spend a rainy Sunday.

As you can probably guess, Lovehoney is pretty pro-masturbation. When it comes to things to get behind (and on top of, and underneath) masturbation is high on our list.
But you don't have to supply the world with top-notch sex toys to love jacking it. Tonnes of people love to love themselves. And why not? Rubbing one out has a host of wonderful benefits.
However, not everyone masturbates. In fact, the number may be much lower than you think. A study by the University of Chicago found that only 61% of men and 38% of women have masturbated in the past year.
Perhaps these people are embarrassed to admit it, or perhaps they still believe some of the bizarre myths about masturbation.
After all, it wasn't so long ago that people believed a cheeky solo-session would cause acne, insanity and even the dreaded hairy palms.
But, let's put those ridiculous rumours to bed right now. Masturbation has endless advantages; not only is it great for mental well-being, but it has surprising health benefits.
While masturbation comes (hehe) naturally to some, for others it's not always plain sailing. That's why we've created this blog. No matter if you've never masturbated before, or are simply looking for a few tips to mix it up, we'll break it down for you, step by step.
When I think about vibrators, I realise that although they're really adaptable, they seem to be commonly marketed towards women.
Even in my personal life, I'd say that the women I know are much more likely to own a vibrator than the men. Vibrators are crowd-favorites for a reason, and I want people of all genders to experience their rumbly goodness.
There are already some amazing vibrators for men, but I also think that a little creativity goes a long way when it comes to our sex toys.
Men, this one's for you.
