...instead of a magnificent round-up post, I've decided to note down a few of the lessons I learned during 2017 – ones which made a particular impression on me – and my main goals for 2018. Which are definitely (and defiantly) not resolutions, because who seriously sticks to those anyway?
Having worked in adult retail for 5 years, I'm no stranger to penning a sexy Christmas gift guide or 10. However it's fair to say most of my work focuses on product marketing, even though buying the right things for sexy time does not a master make. I could tell you which toys and lingerie I rate highest as we wrap up 2015, but if you haven't done the ground work - there's little point in your spending £$£$ on gear. As is becoming a bit of a Cara Sutra tradition, I'd like to deviate from the obvious Christmas gift guides and focus on some advice we can all get on board with.
When it comes to buying romantic gifts for your partner, you might find yourself treading those same, well-worn internet shopping paths of flowers, chocolate, and their preferred form of bubbles. Although a surprise gift containing any of these is always pleasant, sometimes it doesn't really convey the right level of romance –or raunchiness- as a gift to your lover. Why not shop for a memorable present which will truly impress -with unusual romantic gifts instead of the old predictables?
There's a whole cauldron of spooky, sexy offers to select from this Halloween. Witch one you choose (groan) is up to you, but there's not a ghost of a doubt that you can save a lot of your hard earned cash by haunting only the best sex toy shops this Halloween.

By Cara Sutra: The Black Friday phenomenon has well and truly got its feet under the table on this side of the pond. Although its origins are Stateside, we can’t resist a bargain here in good old Blighty, so Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been welcomed in with get-out-of-my-bloody-way arms.
Discover the best Halloween themed sex toys and scary but sexy adult costumes in this round-up guide: Think Halloween is just for kids and goths? Think again!

This attempts to be something of a personal explanation of why I hate Mother's Day. I can completely get why some, maybe even most people love Mother's Day. Buying your lovely mother a big bunch of pink flowers, getting her favourite chocolates, a bottle of wine... taking her out for a Spring time lunch. Enjoying chatter together either daughter and mother or son and mother. Very picturesque. I imagine.
I’m as guilty here as the next person. When it comes to sex with your partner, or even solo fun, it’s so easy to find yourself in a rut. Bedtime, the lights are out, a brief cuddle, you slip under the duvet to attend to them or they snuggle up behind you – and oops, I’ve slipped inside. Or, if you’re single, you head off to bed and whack out that predictable O with your old faithful from the bedside drawer before letting it fall to the floor and drifting off to sleep.
It will soon be Valentine's Day, and you know what that means: bondage. Wait, what? Ok, maybe bondage and Valentine's Day aren't synonymous for everyone. However, with the release of a Fifty Shades of Grey film -and related sex toys- around Valentine's Day for the past couple of years, the two are becoming irrefutably and inexorably entwined.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! New year, new you, new me, new everything. Out with the old, in with the new. Ringing the changes. Freshening up. Clearing the clutter and focussing on plans, goals and conquering the world. Not just me who thinks that way after the streamers and paper hats have been tidied up, right?

However with things at work being busier than a vintage Laura Ashley dress, I have had my days taken up with writing about the sublime contours and luxurious massaging functions of seemingly every battery operated self pleasure device known to woman, as well as heavily featuring a new male sex toy.

But apparently men have resented this day of love and romance. For now, on March 14th, there has come about Steak and Blow Job Day. I mean, really? That's what men want, is it? Recognition for being SO lovely on Valentine's Day, for deigning to even think in terms of romance, for valuing their relationship for a WHOLE day, that the month after, they need a steak dinner and a suck off session to recover?
By Hella Rude The first time I heard the phrase 'new year, new you' was during my first year working with Lovehoney. As someone who is blinkered to self-depreciating bollocks on the interwebs, this apparent cliche had managed to pass me by for my then 26 years. Since acknowledging the premise, my eyes have really been opened to how much consumerism can make you feel shit about yourself during the festive season...
By Cara Sutra: Gazing through the rain spattered window into the wet gloom this morning, it seems a cruel joke of nature that our summer officially started yesterday. Despite the evidence, thoughts are turning to a traditionally hot summer, with adverts for BBQs, barbecue food, garden furniture and the like reminding us of what we’re missing every time we turn on the TV.
“How to Bag a Man for Valentine’s Day” (because all women are straight, don’t forget) and if there should be a specific man in said Singleton’s sights (poor bloke), “10 Ways to Make Him Propose on Valentine’s Day” “6 of the Best Lingerie Sets to Make him Forget His Name, Hand Over His Wallet and Make Him Suck on Your High Heels While You Plan Your Wedding In Two Weeks Time” etc etc. You get my point.
