Pick-up lines. Do you love them or hate them?
Someone sidling up to you at the bar and 'breaking the ice' by pretending to be a penguin and smashing an ice cube might not exactly do it for you...
But a so-bad-it's-good line from someone you like?
To celebrate World Emoji Day, we've given some of our fave cheeky, cheesy (and not at all sleazy) pick-up lines an emoji makeover.
Got that emoji fever? Don't forget to check out our all-new Oh-Moji range of mini wand vibrators.
We all know how important it is to know what makes us tick in the bedroom, but are we all paying enough attention to our partners, too?
For those of us who really need to focus to be able to climax, or need a very specific sort of stimulation, it can be easy to become caught up in the routine of what we need, and not necessarily remember to do the same for the other person (or people) in the room.
And after all, sex is at its best when everyone's enjoying themselves, right?
So we've come up with some top tips (and a handy acronym) for how to make sure you're being a generous lover, as well as still getting everything you need.
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.
What's a dildo?
A dildo is a phallic object designed for sexual play and is usually used to stimulate internal erogenous zones.
A dildo has no moving parts and is not the same a vibrator (though they are often confused with one another).
Good fact huh? You can have that for free.

For any fans of irreverant, cutting-edge comedies featuring kick-ass female characters who haven't watched Broad City yet - where have you been?
This Comedy Central sitcom stars BFFs Abbi and Ilana as they navigate life and love in New York City, often with hilarious results.
And with this Thursday (March 28th) marking the very last episode *sob* of the show, we decided to take this moment to look back at some of the finest moments in Abbi and Ilana's friendship.
(And hey, if you and your bestie fancy living life Abbi-and-Ilana style, we've even created an official range of Broad City sex toys that'll have you shouting "YAASS, KWEEN" in no time.)
For many of us, going to see our doctor is downright hassle (not to mention expensive). But for others, it’s the stuff of fantasy.
At first, those on the outside looking in may find medical fetishes tricky to understand. After all, lots of people associate doctors, nurses and a visit to the hospital with feeling ill rather than aroused.
However, if you pay close attention to pop culture, you’ll pick up on the everyday medical fetishism that exists around us. Look at the iconic cover art for Blink 182’s ‘Enema of the State’ album, for example.
Plus, who can forget Turk’s X rated dream about Elliot in Scrubs?
There is a broad speculum - sorry, spectrum - of extremely varied activities that fall into the category of medical fetishes. In fact, it is one of the most eclectic fetishes that there is!
So, if you're ready to play doctors and nurses, let's lay this fetish bare together.
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!
It's movie night. Lights are dimmed, the popcorn is burning in the microwave and it's time to forget about studying for a couple of hours (it can be done tomorrow, right?).
Back in the days before binge watching a whole series was possible to do, without getting up from the sofa every four hours to put in the next DVD or VHS, movies ruled.
We spent many hours in front of the screen, even though we were told we'd get square eyes. Recreating musical dance routines, crying over a doe dying, gasping at the daredevil stunts of the action heroes and marvelling at the tightness of the Goblin King's trousers...
We are taking a trip back down cinematic memory lane, to look at some of the characters who inspired more than respect for their range. In fact, you could argue that some of them don't even have a range. But they sure were pretty.
There have been 6.9 million unique searches on Lovehoney.co.uk in the past year.
Most of the words that are typed into the search box at the top of our site are pretty straightforward - cock rings, vibrators and all the other types of sex toy we sell.
And when customers type in a phrase, we try to present them with the product or page they're looking for. Simple.
But! Some of the searches are not quite what you'd expect...
Sorry, we don't have a page for that!
Or any of the below, which are just some of the 101 funniest, weirdest, and 'whoops you're on the wrong website' searches we found.
As a student, I'd be lost without my smartphone. It's an essential piece of equipment for me. How else could I keep up with all my important academic notices like last minute seminar room changes, workshops showing me how to cite correctly, and student union election updates?
Then, in my free time I play games, keep in touch with friends, search for the name of the person in the current TV series I'm watching to find out where I recognise them from, and browse Lovehoney forums.
I've also tweeted a large supermarket chain because a relative and I were arguing about what year the local branch opened in our hometown. Behold, all this power and knowledge at my fingertips.
But wait, I can hear you thinking, if smartphones can do so many awesome things surely there's probably an app for reigniting intimacy? Like autocomplete, I'm already there.
Here are some of my favourites for boosting your sexual inspiration and adventures.
