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.

The most complicated part of enjoying strap-on sex is making sure you get your hands on the right equipment, and ensuring the harness and dildo you own are compatible with one another. In addition, if your tastes change, and you fancy trying a larger or smaller attachment, the process of making sure the girth of your toy fits the harness you have can be a bit of a nightmare!
To solve this issue, Doc Johnson came up with an ingenious strap-on system. Vac-U-Lock is the world's first fully interchangeable pleasure system which enables you to enjoy strap on sex, without worrying about O-rings, flared bases and appendage girths. All you need to do is check whether the toy is Vac-U-Lock friendly, and you're good to go!
