1. What is a condom? And why are they so popular for ensuring safe sex?

    Well, firstly, barrier methods of contraception (which is what a condom is) are the only type of contraception that protects you and your partner from STI's as well as unwanted pregnancy.

    When used correctly, they offer an astonishing 98% success rate, but in order to be properly protected, you need to know what you're doing.

    In this weeks video, Jess and Sammi give you the lowdown on latex (and non-latex) love-gloves, condom-friendly lubes and everything else you need to know before putting one on.

    Come back next week for part 2, when we show you exactly how to put a condom on (properly!)

    Chat-up lines. Do you love them or hate them?

    Someone sidling up to you at the bar and 'breaking the ice' by pretending to be a penguin and smashing an ice cube might not exactly do it for you...

    But a so-bad-it's-good line from someone you like?

    Total hearts-eyes!

    To celebrate World Emoji Day, we've given some of our fave cheeky, cheesy (and not at all sleazy) pick-up lines an emoji makeover.

    Got that emoji fever? Don't forget to check out our all-new Oh-Moji range of mini wand vibrators.

    A question we get asked a LOT at Lovehoney is "how can I make my penis bigger?"

    Now, we like to remind people that bigger doesn't necessarily mean better, and it's often better to learn some tips and tricks to use what nature gave you.

    There's a lot of truth to the old saying "it's not the size, but what you do with it that counts".

    But for those penis-owning people out there who want to boost the size of their boner, there are several ways of doing so, for both short and long term gains.

    If you hunt around the internet (or have a peep in your junk emails, for that matter!) you'll trip over dozens of ways to increase the size of your penis.

    However not all of these methods are particularly safe or reliable (bee stings anyone?!) and some can even lead to shrinkage later in life, so it's really important you do your research and choose a safe way to magnify your meat flute.

    In this weeks video guide, Jess and Annabelle tell you 4 sure-fire ways to do exactly that!

    Just when you thought Womanizer couldn't get any better, they go and bowl us over with a brand new, better-than-ever suction sex toy.

    Still promising guaranteed orgasms (in under 3 minutes, we might add) via their patented PleasureAir technology, Womanizer have released their brand new, all singing, all dancing model: the Womanizer Premium.

    In this week's video, Jess and Sammi take you through what makes this brand new model stand out from the rest of the Womanizer range.

    Passport? Check.

    Sunscreen? Check.

    Vibrator? Check.

    If, like me, you convince yourself you can pack a whole holiday’s worth of essentials into one carry-on bag (rolling your clothes is the answer, people), then you’ve probably experienced the 'hairdryer or sex toy' dilemma.

    As far as I’m concerned, my Mantric wand has just as much right to a corner of my suitcase as my hair straighteners and 7 pairs of shoes.

    And though I know the humidity will turn my hair into a fuzzy mess as soon as I get off the plane, and I'll shuffle around in the same pair of flipflops all week, at least I'll have great orgasms.

    If you can’t bear to leave your trusty plaything behind, then here are a few tips for taking your toys on holiday.

    Rimming, tossing the salad, eating ass... Whatever you call it, if you want tongue-on-bum action, you need to know a few things first.

    Here, Jess and Annabelle give you the lowdown on bumlicking, with tips, tricks and techniques for the giver and receiver to make the most of this anal oral exploration.

    What is Pegging? 

    Pegging is effectively "strap-on sex". So what's the difference between pegging and strap-on sex?

    It all comes down to who's doing what.

    Strap-on Sex (definition): A person of any gender penetrates another person, using a strap-on.

    Pegging (definition): A person with a clitoris penetrates a person with a penis using a strap-on.

    This gender-bending sex act leans on role reversal, so it's no surprise that you'll need to think a little outside the box when it comes to sex positions.

    So, whether you're looking for an easy position for first-time pegging, or just fancy trying some new tricks, here are my top 5 positions for pegging.

    If you're lucky enough to be travelling abroad for your holiday this year, you might be considering taking some sex toys with you. Excellent!

    Now, there are some things to think about before you travel.

    Are sex toys legal in the country you're visiting?

    Will you be stopped at the airport?

    How much lube is the right amount of lube?

    Learn the answers to all these questions and more with Jess and Sammi in this week's YouTube video.
