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.
Kinky sex: in case you didn't know, it's pretty popular nowadays.
Topics which used to be too taboo to talk about, like bondage and spanking, are now being discussed and explored by everyday couples all over the world. There are many reasons for this shift in attitude towards sex, but it's no surprise that the BDSM trend in particular has only grown since Fifty Shades of Grey debuted 8 years ago.
Now, with five books, two films and a third movie (Fifty Shades Freed) just around the corner, it doesn't look like the Fifty Shades-induced bondage craze is going to stop anytime soon. Huzzah!
In preparation for the newest film, which comes out next month, Lovehoney wanted to make sure all you kinky so'n'so's are playing safe and always use a safe word when you play like Grey.
How? We did a survey, of course.
The good news is, our survey results show that Lovehoney customers use their noggin when it comes to kinky play, and always use a safe word. Not only were you proud to tell us how seriously you take safety, but you also told us your favourite safe words for stopping the action mid-swing.
And so we present to you, the top 10 most popular safe words (along with a few we simply couldn't miss out)...

If you had asked me how many different types of orgasms there were when I was 19, I probably would have said “…there are different types?”.
Sadly, like many young women, the only type of orgasm I knew about back then was the kind I was habitually faking.
But then I bought my first sex toy, and started being more vocal about what I needed in bed, and, because of this, I’ve learnt that there are at least 12 distinct types of orgasms that women can have.
I’ve not had all of them yet, mind you. But to paraphrase my good friend 50 Cent, this year my plan is to get off or die trying.
If you, too, are curious about this kind of 'Dirty Dozen', then just keep reading to find out what they are, and how you can have them.
As someone who has owned and used sex toys for the majority of their sexually active years, I am a huge advocate of all types of toy and see no problem in possessing and enjoying them.
With such a large range on the market, there truly is a toy out there for everyone.
That being said, as the title of this article suggests, I am here to shout loud and proud about the fabulousness that is:
The realistic dildo.
Although many people would consider this a toy box staple, there are many others who are yet to be convinced.
Why does it have to look so realistic? Surely if it doesn't vibrate, it's not worth it? Why does it have balls?
Well, I'm here to enlighten you as to why these toys deserve a place underneath everyone's bed.
Roses are red, violets are blue, blowjobs are great, which style best suits you?

We've all been there - things are heating up, skin is caressing skin, a partner's breath dancing on your neck, a gentle touch sending your spine ablaze with wonderful shivers…
And then it all goes a bit daft.
We'll say it time and time again, sex is ridiculous and we should embrace that, but every now and then the throes of passion are interrupted by an 'oops' moment that can leave you groaning, and not in the good way.
Here are our top picks of the silliest sex mistakes we all make!
With Halloween sneaking up on us fast, many of us around the world are turning our thoughts to which mind-blowing costume we should be donning for the big night.
But, even if you don’t dress up as a sexy traffic cop or a slutty bag of Skittles, there’s a chance that your simple ghost outfit or creepy clown make-up could be causing a stir for someone.
Sexual fetishes and fantasies come in all different forms, so it comes as little surprise that if you’ve ever had an X-rated daydream about a good-looking Georgian ghost, or a frolic with Frankenstein’s monster, you’re definitely not alone.
So, if white sheets make you moan, or detailed zombie make-up brings on a very localized case of rigor mortis, read on to learn more about five particular proclivities that thrive at Halloween…
