1. What's the best way to give a sex toy at Christmas? Well, really that's up to you, but around the dinner table with Aunt Mavis may not be the best option.

    Our top tip would be to pop any sexy gifts in your partner's Christmas stocking: It's better for the giver, and the receiver.

    How? Not only do most people open their stocking in the privacy of their bedroom which makes receiving a sexy treat more intimate, but most Christmas stockings are filled with an array of goodies, making the giving process a little less daunting too.

    Join Jess and Lisa in this weeks special festive sex toy video to find out which toys they'd give to their partner in a stocking.

    Which is the Best G-Spot Vibrator?

    I started collecting sex toys over a year ago and have always wanted to try an internal vibrator. Fortunately, Lovehoney has come to my rescue.

    G-spot orgasms are comparitively rare, with between 70-80% of women needing external clitoral stimulation to climax. But G-spot vibrators like these ones are shaped to deliver powerful stimulation to that elusive sweet spot, located a couple of inches inside the vagina, which can deliver powerful full-body climaxes.

    This month, I've tested four G-spot vibrators to see which worked the best for me and my body, and now I can tell you which G-spot vibe is the winner.

    Side note: I have a vulva and I haven't used any of these toys for anal play.

    Christmas is a hectic time of year for most of us, and it's easy to let sex and intimacy slip.

    Cecile, Jess and Sammi – aka the Lovehoney elves – are here to help, with 8 ways to make your Christmas sexier.

    The body positive movement is about accepting and appreciating all human body types, no matter what they look like.

    What society considers to be beautiful should not cause a person to lose confidence or to feel unworthy of love and respect.

    Society's "beautiful" changes every five minutes anyway, so why bother attempting to keep up with what’s trending? We’ve spent the last three years obsessing over our eyebrows... we’ll probably be shaving them off by 2020.

    We often hear about body positivity in conjunction with the fight against fat-shaming and the pressure women face to look a certain way.

    There is more to the movement than that. Body positivity is against both skinny and fat-shaming, because body-shaming in all its forms can lead to mental health problems and harmful eating disorders.

    But body positivity should be inclusive of all genders, races, and abilities, not just female weight. So how can being body positive improve your sex life?

    6 Sex Toys You Should Try If You Have Balls

    If you're the proud owner of an exceptional pair of balls, then listen up.

    When it comes down to providing powerful pleasure, testicles never get the credit they deserve.

    Your balls are covered by a thin layer of muscle, and this muscle extends into your abdomen. This means your cojones can take your orgasm, amplify it and make it ripple throughout your entire body. Who doesn't want that?!

    To spread this good news, I want to introduce you to 5 sex toys you should try if you have balls. Literally - I don't mean you necessarily have to be courageous or full of bravado to use them.

    Let's get the ball(s) rolling...

    In this Head Board article, we’re getting to the – ahem – bottom of the question, “If I’m a man who likes anal play, does that mean I’m gay?”.

    5 Foreplay Moves She'll Love

    Many of life’s most enjoyable activities require you to work quickly. A game of Boggle, for instance, or eating a 99 in the heat of summer.

    Sex is certainly an enjoyable activity; it's up there with board games and ice cream in my books.

    But good sex isn’t about sprinting to the finish line. Taking the time to engage in electrifying foreplay is crucial if you want to knock your partner’s socks off.

    Here are 5 tried-and-tested foreplay moves that your lucky lady is bound to love.

    Paul Thomas Bell For The Head Board

    Lots of you asked us, what is it that makes a man phenomenal in bed? Luckily, our Head Board sexpert and award-winning relationships blogger, is here to offer his take on the number one sex tip for men.

    Sex from a male perspective can often be more complicated than it really has to be. It's very easy to overthink sex, to over-analyse you partner's expectations and your own ability (or inability) to perform.

    It's important to remember that sex should be enjoyable for all parties. It's one of life's simplest yet greatest pleasures, but still we insist on stressing out about it.

    One of the biggest challenges for men is remembering that not all partners like the same thing; of course they don't! With one partner you may be a stud, and with another, you could be the greatest anti-climax the act of sex has ever known.

    There is, however, one trick that I firmly believe should work with just about any partner – and it's all about the build-up.

    Anal play is great. There. We said it.

    No matter your gender or sexual orientation, everyone has a butthole and that butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings that can feel amazing when stimulated.

    Anal play should never (EVER) hurt and, with proper preparation and slow progression, can be a completely new (and potentially more intense) way to climax.

    Read on to discover our top tips for exploring your dark side in the most pleasurable way possible.
