    If, like me, you convince yourself you can pack a whole vacation's worth of essentials into one carry-on bag (rolling your clothes is the answer, people), then you’ve probably experienced the 'hairdryer or sex toy' dilemma.

    As far as I’m concerned, my Mantric wand has just as much right to a corner of my suitcase as my hair straighteners and 7 pairs of shoes.

    And though I know the humidity will turn my hair into a fuzzy mess as soon as I get off the plane, and I'll shuffle around in the same pair of sliders all week, at least I'll have great orgasms.

    If you can’t bear to leave your trusty plaything behind, then here are a few tips for taking your toys on vacation.

    Rimming, tossing the salad, eating ass... Whatever you call it, if you want tongue-on-bum action, you need to know a few things first.

    Here, Jess and Annabelle give you the lowdown on bumlicking, with tips, tricks and techniques for the giver and receiver to make the most of this anal oral exploration.

    "It's basically a transformer for your dick!" - Calum McSwiggan, YouTuber 

    If you follow Lovehoney closely, you'll know that we're always shouting about sex toys and sexual happiness.

    We're hollering away on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and even in the streets! 

    But sometimes we like to go the extra inch and encourage you, the people of the internet, to join our crusade for sexual happiness. (In other words, sometimes we send out a big ol' box of dicks and ask you to tell us what you thought.)

    Recently, we asked YouTuber, Calum McSwiggan if he fancied receiving a satchel of smut in exchange for a sex toy review video. Lucky for us, he did (who wouldn't) and this is what he had to say... (above)

    What is Pegging? 

    Pegging is effectively "strap-on sex". So what's the difference between pegging and strap-on sex?

    It all comes down to who's doing what.

    Strap-on Sex (definition): A person of any gender penetrates a person with a clitoris using a strap-on.

    Pegging (definition): A person with a clitoris penetrates a person with a penis using a strap-on.

    This gender-bending sex act leans on role reversal, so it's no surprise that you'll need to think a little outside the box when it comes to sex positions.

    So, whether you're looking for an easy position for first-time pegging, or just fancy trying some new tricks, here are my top 5 positions for pegging.

    Sexiest Scents As Proven By Science

    Have you ever caught a whiff of someone, and suddenly they’re really attractive to you? You’re not alone: there’s a link between seduction and smell that’s as old as civilisation itself.

    The sciencey bit: When an odour stimulates the receptors in our nose, they pass electrical impulses (or patterns) to our brain which the brain interprets and perceives as a smell. Our sense of smell is 10,000 times more sensitive than any of our other senses, and recognition of smell is immediate.

    Psychologists believe that the area of the brain that processes scent is also the part that processes emotions — and certain odours can make us feel stimulated, aroused, and excited.

    With that in mind, here are some of the sexiest scents, as proven by science, guaranteed to get you in the mood and more.


    First Thing's First, What's a Sissy?

    Let's start with the Oxford dictionary definition...

    Sissy Definition (noun): Derived from the word "sister", a "sissy" is a person regarded as effeminate or cowardly.

    Synonyms: weakling, coward, wimp, wuss, pushover, effeminate, unmanly, womanish

    Now, without getting hung up on the social political correctness (or lack there of) of it all, and why "wimp" and "woman" are synonymous...

    (DOWN WITH THE PATRIARCHY)

    ...let's break down what this means for sex play.

    Esther de la Ford for the Lovehoney Head Board

    Recently, we were asked the question: "How does one begin to feel sex positive when sex has not always been a positive experience?". So we reached out to therapist and coach Esther De La Ford for her advice on how to rediscover your sexual happiness.

    If I could give anyone who has experienced sexual trauma only 2 pieces of advice, it would be these.

    • Let yourself completely off the hook. Ditch expectations. Be open to the high possibility of tears, breakdowns, and your body and brain just not playing ball sometimes. Then love yourself anyway.
    • Throw everything you've got at it and see what sticks. Don't only try one mindfulness technique, or go to a few sessions at a Rape and Sexual Abuse Clinic you're not really into, or read the first 3 chapters of a tantra book a mate suggested and then forget about it. Try EVERYTHING. This is your life, your body, your sexual wellbeing. It deserves everything you've got.

    These are the two pieces of advice I would give if we were meeting in a pub toilet and didn't have very long to chat, but thankfully we have a bit more time here.

    So here are my top tips for cultivating a healthy space to start enjoying sex again after sexual trauma.
