    1. Frisky Business hits our screens on March 26.

      The UK's biggest online sex toy retailer, Lovehoney, is the latest retailer to take centre-stage in a TV series.

      A six part fly-on-the-wall documentary named Frisky Business is set to debut next month.

      The series airs on Lifetime from March 26 and follows life inside the Bath-based retailer, carrying the tagline “meet the team turning Britain on”.

      The exclusive series takes an entertaining look at the company’s inner workings, showcasing the eclectic array of employees who work for the business.

      Frisky Business follows the success of Lovehoney’s one-off Channel 4 documentary More Sex Please, We’re British, which aired in 2012.

      Broadcasters have discovered that retailers are a big draw for viewers, who have tuned in to see shopfloor fiascos and the inner workings of some of the UK’s best- known businesses.

      Lovehoney Group wins 3 awards at the XBIZ Awards 2014.

      28th January, BATH: Lovehoney Group attended the prestigious XBIZ Awards 2014 and secured three awards.

      The Bath-based company is the UK's biggest online retailer of sex toys, and won both Pleasure Products Company of the Year and International-Based Pleasure Products Company of the Year.

      Also part of the Lovehoney Group, the Covent Garden-based erotic shop Coco de Mer claimed Retailer of the Year - Boutique.

      The success caught Co-Director Neal Slateford off-guard, as he said “I'm totally surprised, and very flattered."

      He continued: "We're from England, so it's cool that we've been made so welcome here. And there were some amazing companies that we were up against.”

      After seeing a huge increase in sales following their exclusive license to sell Fifty Shades of Grey and Bettie Page official merchandise, Lovehoney recorded profits that tripled to £2.25 million last year.

      Held at the Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, the XBIZ Awards were hosted by adult actress Jenna Jameson and attended by the royalty of the adult entertainment world and many of the retail industry's key players.

      Saturdays at 7.37pm is the most popular time to make love.

      Sex O'Clock - the time of the week when most couples are having sex - is 7.37pm on a Saturday night, according to new research by Lovehoney.

      It was chosen as the peak time for lovemaking. Couples said their bedroom fun usually occurred after having a romantic meal and a spell watching TV.

      Saturdays are by far the most popular day for sex - chosen by 44% of couples, followed by Sundays (24%) and Fridays (22%).

      However, the time when couples most desire sex and when they actually do it differs by around three hours. The time when we are most aroused is 4.33pm on a Saturday, but often there are fewer opportunities to have sex in the late afternoon.

      The survey showed that our sex lives are a constant battle between desire and opportunity. A quarter of us are most aroused first thing in the morning, yet just 10% make love at that time because of work pressures.
