    Adult DVDsCustomers often ask why they can't buy Adult DVDs on Lovehoney. We do not sell any Adult DVDs because although they are easily available on the Internet, it's not always clear which movies can be supplied legally in the UK.

    Buying X-rated movies on the Internet is confusing at best and downright baffling at worst. Different rules apply to different rating certificates and different countries.

    We spoke to Customs and Excise and the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) to get the facts.

    In all sorts of exciting colours, shapes and sizes, dildos are designed with ergonomic curves to stimulate all the right spots - the fact that they don't vibrate doesn't lessen their potential to give pleasure.

    To find the perfect dildo, you need to think first consider what you're going to use it for. For example, if you want a dildo for G-spot stimulation you may want one made from a firm material like glass or metal, with a slight angle or curve. If you want to use a dildo anally then you’ll need one with a flared base made from an easily cleaned material.

    Once you’ve figured out what you want, we’ll show you how to select the right dildo for you.

    beginners bondage techniques When most people think of bondage, they think of a man or woman being chained to the bed posts with a set of furry handcuffs. Although this is a fun way to get into tie-up fun, there is a lot more to enjoy and explore when it comes to bondage.

    Bondage can be used to pull parts of the body together, spread certain limbs, fix your body to another object or even create the effect of mummification.

    Whatever you want to try, bondage is a sure-fire way to broaden your sexual horizons, spice up your bedroom antics and increase your repertoire of sexual and sensual techniques.

    BDSM is an all-inclusive term given to any sexual behaviour that might be considered 'kinky'. Pain, physical restraint and servitude would be frowned upon in a non-sexual scenario. In BDSM circles, however, these practices are engaged in with the consent of both people involved for mutual satisfaction and excitement.

    Spanking, whipping, tying, binding, scratching - whatever you fancy trying, you can quickly become a sexual tigress and bring out your kinky side with our guide to BDSM and bondage

    Bondage Boutique Cotton Shibari Rope 10mFor those of you who like the more elegant things in life, Japanese rope bondage may be a sophisticated sexual sensation that is right up your street.

    Known as Shibari (which literally translates as 'to bind'), Japanese rope bondage is a more accentuated and precise version of regular restraint. As a result, Shibari takes dedication, patience and imagination to make it work properly.

    Even though it may seem more complicated than many 'Western' forms of bondage, by learning Shibari you will develop a beautiful skill that will lead to fantastic genital stimulation as well as a deeper sense of trust and a greater bond between you and your partner.
