Once you've taken the plunge and tried bondage for the first time, you may decide that it's something you'd like to experiment with further.
Traditionally, vanilla couples experiment with bondage by being tied up and objectified as a sexual thing - to be touched, toyed with, pleasured and pleased without having to do very much at all. This is great fun at first, but couples often find that this kind of play becomes a one-sided affair.
There's a whole world of toys and tools to explore, but you'll need an inventive imagination to go with them to keep sexy restraint scenarios fresh. By incorporating explorable themes into your bondage play, you'll find it easier to renew the experience time and time again.
For most women, the key to orgasm is direct stimulation of the clitoris. Packed with nerve endings and a one-track mind for pleasure you'd think giving the clitoris what it wants would be easy? Unfortunately, many of us know from experience that just isn't the case. But don't worry, help is on hand!
Orgasm boosters are effective and easy to use. Simply apply to your favourite spots before playing with a toy or lover and you'll soon feel a growing tingle that makes you more aware of your body and heightens your sensitivity to touch.
Whether it's your first time using a rabbit vibrator or you're already a keen rabbit lover looking for the best way to use a rabbit vibrator, Lovehoney is on hand to help.
Rabbit vibrators are renowned for introducing women to what is known as a 'blended orgasm'. This is a term used to describe when a woman experiences two orgasms simultaneously: a clitoral and vaginal or G-spot orgasm at the same time.
With these hints and tips, you'll soon be confident that you know exactly how to use a rabbit vibrator to its fullest - and most satisfying - potential.
Lovehoney has over 400 vibrators, so finding the best vibrator for you can seem a bit daunting. This guide breaks down the process to make sure you choose the perfect vibe first time!
The best way to start is to think about about how you're going to use your vibe. For example, if you want something for internal stimulation pay close attention to shape and movement of the toy. If you're looking for external clitoral stimulation, consider whether you might prefer a vibe made from squishy or hard material.
If you want stronger stimulation, check out our extra powerful vibrators. However, if noise levels are more important to you than power, look for something that's labelled as extra quiet. When you've got an idea of how you'd like to use your vibrator and what's important for you, we'll show you how to choose a vibrator that's going to tick all your boxes.
Lingerie shopping is tricky at the best of times.

Vibrating cock rings are a best-selling sex toy and tend to be one of the first toys couples try. It's easy to see why. Cock rings help boost his size and hardness plus improve his stamina, and for her they stimulate her clitoris during sex with a buzzing mini bullet. Offering extra pleasure for both partners, it's no wonder cock rings are so appealing.
Promising twice, sometimes three times the stimulation of a standard vibrator, plus the chance of a blended internal and external orgasm, it’s no wonder ladies are ‘lapin’ up the rabbit vibrator, now the best-selling sex toy model worldwide.

An iconic media favourite, rabbits first exploded onto the nation’s consciousness in the ’90s, and in the years that followed a wealth of new designs have been brought out to offer a wide spectrum of functionality. Some rabbits can curve into your G-spot, some rabbits can shake your bottom, some rabbits can brush your teeth. (Okay not that one.)
Bells and whistles aside, all rabbits follow a core structure: one or (usually) two ears that rest externally on your clitoris, and a shaft for vaginal insertion. By stimulating these two areas at the same time, rabbit vibrators create intense all-encompassing pleasure.
Lovehoney has a whole warren full of rabbit vibrators to suit every pocket and honey pot. Read on for your formal introduction to the wonderful world of sunny bunny lovin’.

What is a ball gag? A gag is a type of bondage equipment designed to muffle the submissive partner during BDSM play. Although there are many different types of gags, ball gags are by far the most popular. While many couples are intimidated by gags at first, after trying it out they often find it adds an exciting edge to Dominance and submission play.
Ball gags come in several different styles and offer varying levels of restraint. It's important you choose the right gag for you as some are great for beginners, while others are best suited to advanced S&M explorers.
