    Not only is April 21st Lovehoney's 16th Birthday, it's also Sexual Happiness Day, a celebration of the billions of benefits of amazing sex.

    16 years ago, we sold our very first sex toy (it was a rabbit vibrator, in case you're curious), and ever since then we've done our darndest to fill your sex lives with pleasure, experimentation and, most importantly, more fun than you can shake a suction cup dildo at.

    Like all good birthdays, we're making ours last a whole week, which means amazing offers on bestselling sex toys every single day.

    And if that wasn't enough, here are 7 ways to put a sexy spring in your step this week.

    Ever gazed at your favourite vibrator and wondered what generous genius dreamt up its magical shape and amazing orgasm-giving powers?

    Where would we be without our favourite setting, the speed we know will skyrocket us to orgasm, and the toy we keep on standby by our bedside?

    From its very basic beginnings in Joseph Granville's doctor's surgery, to the flashy, bells-and-whistles varieties we now know and love, no sex toy has a more colourful history than the wand vibrator.

    We've delved into our X-rated history book to bring you the edited highlights. Enjoy!

    Make a male orgasm amazing

    While they may not have 12 different types of orgasm to explore, there are still plenty of ways men can turbocharge their orgasm for a mind-blowingly good jizz fest.

    Although women might not hesitate to invest in a sex toy to improve their orgasms, men don’t always offer themselves the same courtesy, and many aren’t comfortable sharing tips to enhance their orgasms.

    Read on for how to help yourself, or the man in your life, to have incredible, super-charged orgasms with a few tips, tricks and tweaks to their routine.

    hair-flick

    We all know that being naked is pretty great, but what about the getting naked part?

    If your undressing style consists of an under-the-covers fumble or you prefer the rip-off-your-clothes-and-go technique, we suggest you try slowing things down a little for a change. And maybe add some music.

    Terrified? Stick with us.

    The idea of being the centre of attention in the buff is, quite literally, lots of people's idea of a nightmare.

    Anyone else have those dreams where you turn up to work/uni/your mother in law's wearing nothing but your knickers?

    Ok, so it might be a bit of a challenge, but stripping for your partner can be unbelievably hot.

    We've put together a handy guide to help boost your confidence and have your lover's heart pounding.

    4 Reasons to Try A New Sex Toy

    If you're reading this, you're undoubtedly already at least familiar with the basics of sex toys.

    Chances are that you already have one or two firm favourites nestled away, whether hidden in a sock drawer or proudly out on display (seriously, some of those glass dildos are gorgeous).

    Whatever your situation, it's pretty easy to slip into the habit of having your chosen couple of sex toys and not really ever venturing out from there.

    After all, if it works, why change it? Well, that's what we're here to tell you.

    Here are the top 4 reasons you should try a new sex toy!

    For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.

    But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that traffic warden who once fined you.

    By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practises that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.

    But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

    Not only do suspender belts hold your stockings up during the friskiest of trysts and the most energetic stripteases, they also boost your lingerie's sex appeal to eye-watering levels.

    However, if you aren't careful when you clip, you might find yourself with your stockings round your ankles before you've made it to first base.

    We've put together a handy guide to help you master a perfectly put-together look.

    Now that you've had some fun, what's next?

    We're big believers that there’s always room for improvement when it comes to using sex toys – they're an endless source of fun! 

    To help you get even more from your toys, we've put together a few tips and tricks, from choosing the right lube to playing with a partner.

    body-confidence

    New Year's Resolutions are, for many, a distant memory. But for many (myself included) losing weight and toning up was high up on my list.

    However, for a number of reasons, maybe it hasn't happened, and you're still not feeling as sexy as you wish you could in the bedroom.

    I like to think I'm a very body-positive person, and I genuinely believe in beauty at any size, but when it comes to my own body, I really struggle to put my beliefs into practice.

    But, really, body confidence comes from accepting your body exactly as it is, rather than trying to make it into what you think everyone else wants it to be.

    So, if you're looking for a boost to your sex appeal and sensuality, we've got some easy tips for you that can help you love your body, and everything it does for you.

    Whether you love receiving oral sex and want the real-feel deal during play, or are looking for something to enhance your existing oral sex sessions, Lovehoney has a range of Oral Sex Toys for you.

    Thanks to never-ending sex toy innovation, you can now experience the sensations of someone going down on you, even if you’re playing solo.

    From glans stimulation to deep throating fun and fierce tongue flickers, we’ve put together this guide to help you find the right oral sex toy for you.
