    Summer is offically upon us, and for many of us that means only one thing: festival season!

    You've dusted off your wellies, charged your festival phone and packed enough glitter to fill RuPaul's Werk Room.

    But have you got the perfect outfit? Festivals are the perfect place to step outside your comfort zone and embrace the outrageous. Where else can you queue up for a cup of tea in full tiger face paint, nipple pasties and an anorak without anyone batting an eyelid?

    We've got a fancy dress box bursting with festival-ready outfit ideas, from rainbow stripes to brighten up the muddiest field, to the shiniest, sparkliest accessories.

    Sex on Your Period

    We all know sex makes you feel good. I mean, it's sex, right? But the literal health benefits of having sex don't get enough air time as far as we're concerned.

    At OHNE, we're able to relate almost anything to periods, so you best believe we've learnt how to use the near-magical powers of getting off to hack our menstrual cycles.

    Your period and hormones might seem like an unpredictable mystery at times, but they're actually super easy to track - and, as a result, optimise.

    Whether you want to stick it to your cramps, combat hormone-induced mood swings, or go up against your PMS-induced stress, here are some of our top tips for working with your menstrual cycle to get the most out of your sex life.

    Dear Robin,

    My roommate and I have really great chemistry. It started with a little bit of flirting on a night out, but lately it's more than that, and we've even started sending suggestive texts.

    The other night we both slept in the same bed. Nothing happened, except for a bit of cuddling, but now I can't stop thinking about it.

    We're both single, and I feel like maybe we should just have sex and get it over with. The thing is, we live with two other roommates. Should I just try and ignore how I'm feeling?

    Sex toys for men: they're getting more and more popular by the day, and it's easy to see why.

    They're great to use on your own or with a partner, and can help you to discover new, more intense orgasms.

    Plus there are LOADS of different styles of sex toy to try nowadays, from strokers and fake pussies, to male vibrators, cock rings, prostate massagers and beyond.

    And even though we see male sex toys flying off the shelves every day at Lovehoney (seriously!), we still hear a lot of guys telling us they've never tried one because they're worried someone will judge them, or that you "only need a sex toy if you're single".

    Well, we're here to dispel those myths and give you 7 reasons you should be proud to own a male sex toy!

    5 Beginner Toys (For When You're Not Sure Where to Start)

    "I should try a sex toy." It's a thought that's been gently niggling at the back of your mind for a while now.

    "You have to find out what the fun is all about!" it says. "Lovehoney wouldn't have an extensive website, a blog and a YouTube channel with over 100,000 subscribers if sex toys weren't all that they were cracked up to be."

    You've been scrolling through our website when you get some time alone, trying to work out if you should go for something that vibrates, or sucks, or thrusts or plugs, but there's just too much to choose from!

    You know you want to try a sex toy, that much is certain.

    Maybe it's because you've never had an orgasm before and you're curious to find out what it's like – I know that's why I bought my first sex toy.

    Or maybe you know how to get your rocks off on your own but now you want to take things to the next level. If you're not sure where to start, just think of it as like using your favourite online shopping website.

    You can shop according to brand or price. You can read other people's reviews to get a sense of customer satisfaction levels. Sometimes there are sales and discounts, so you can snap up a bargain – all those parts of sex toy shopping are familiar.

    But with Lovehoney you can also shop according to what orifice you want stimulated, and whether you'd prefer your dildo to look realistic or not – so I guess that kind of sets sex toy shopping significantly apart from any other retail experience.

    Here are 5 beginner toys you should look at if you're not sure where to start.

    POTW-WLW-Header

    We know how much you guys love new sex positions, and we want everyone to enjoy excellent sex, so we've put together a list of super sex positons for lesbians and WLW (women who love women).

    In 2017, there were an estimated 1.1 million people aged 16 and older in the UK who identified as gay, lesbian, or bisexual. If you're someone who falls into that category or your relationship just so happens to comprise two people with vaginas who enjoy having sex with one another, this is the post for you.

    We've found 10 delightful sex positions you can try when you and your lady lover want to sneak off into the bedroom for some alone time. For your convenience and ease of access, we've separated our list into both penetrative and non-penetrative options.

    XX Ways To Make You Sex Toys Work Harder

    If you're anything like us, you have a huge collection of sex toys tucked away in your bedside table, in the back of your sock drawer, under your bed, in the bathroom cabinet, in the spare room...

    Okay, maybe it's only us with sex toys stashed everywhere.

    It happens! Maybe you've replaced your old faithful with the newer, more powerful model. Maybe a once-fulfilling smaller toy has been upgraded to a heftier item that once seemed too large.

    Whatever the reason, if you've got a plethora of fave sex toys kicking around, you'll want to read this blog to find out how you can make some of them even better by teaming them up.
