“It was the best ever.” “I came 10 times.” “We did it in the frickin’ rabbit run.” These are the kind of tales about mind-blowing romps shared down the pub, and in books and movies. In reality, not every single session is a swinging-from-the-chandeliers affair. And that’s the first thing to remember.
However, this doesn’t mean your best sex ever is out of reach – all you need is a bit of body positivity and bedroom confidence.
Easier said than done though, right? Having total sex confidence can be hard. Really hard. You can be 100% comfortable in your day-to-day life, but stripping off and bumping uglies with that sexy someone is a whole different ballgame.
Check out these simple solutions for getting to know yourself, and to thinking and acting more confidently in the sack, and you’ll be enjoying supercharged sexytime in no time at all.
Male sex toys have come a very long way since the Ancient Greeks used stale bread and a glug of olive oil to get off (you can't blame them for being resourceful).
These days you can step away from the salad dressing, as there are loads of different male sex toys to try.
More and more men are upgrading their solo sessions with textured strokers, twerking butts and sleek prostate massagers.
And while we're over the moon that they're taking their pleasure into their own hands (ahem), we also think male sex toys make great gifts.
So next time you want to treat the man in your life, why not go for a sex toy (obviously don't hand them a gift-wrapped Fleshlight in front of the in-laws).
Here are six reasons to buy a sex toy for a man.
One of the simplest ways to flip your wank routine on its head is to try hands-free pleasure, and for people with a penis, there are loads of toys to help you do this.
Not only are hands-free trouser shuffles an easy way to try something new, but they have a bunch of benefits to help you enjoy better pleasure too.
Here are just a few reasons to try it for yourself:
1. Thrusting your body into a static toy (rather than moving a toy up and down your shaft) more closely replicates sex, which gets your whole body and mind involved.
2. Some toys will get you off with zero effort. Simply stick it on or in, switch it on, and let it work its magic.
3. With no risk of arm ache from repeated strokes, you can extend your pleasure for a longer session.
4. Wearable toys (like cock rings, butt toys and ball bags) don't require an erection to get you off.

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

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.
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 a more popular by the day, and it's easy to see why.

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!
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).

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.
Psst. Gather round. We've been sitting on a secret at Lovehoney HQ - and no, it's not one of our remote control toys.
