One of the joys of sharing a house is that you can almost guarantee that at some point, you’ll hear your housemates bumping uglies. It’s like a university rite of passage.
But what about when it comes to indulging in a spot of alone-time?

So for those of you who are shy about playing with yourself whilst your friends play FIFA on the other side of the wall, we've rounded up a selection of the best quiet sex toys, as well as some tips from our experts on becoming a top undercover lover.

When it comes to male sex toys, chances are you've heard of TENGA. This Japanese brand is renowned for making high tech, well-designed toys for men that offer pinpointed stimulation. The most famous TENGA creation has to be the Flip Hole, which is an expertly-designed male masturbator that offers intense, but discreet pleasure.
What makes TENGA Flip Holes different from most other male masturbators is that they're not anatomical-shaped and don't try to replicate the female body - instead, their engineers have focused on creating a specialised pleasure system to enhance male pleasure.

There's nothing more frustrating than a vibrator that doesn't quite get you there, and when it comes to vibrators, for most people it's a case of 'the more power the better'. But working out how powerful a sex toy is, without trying it for yourself, is near-enough impossible. Don't worry! Lovehoney has valiantly tested the lot to find the top 10 toys with the strongest vibrations and most intense sensations.
Mains powered sex toys top our chart, because of the large amount of energy they receive from your power supply - there's just no beating them if power is top of your vibrator shopping list. Rechargeable toys come a close second, with their excellent battery life and strong motors, followed up by traditional battery-powered sex toys that still pack an incredible punch.
