Deck the halls with restraints and ticklers; if you're craving something hotter than mulled wine this Yuletide, you're in luck. Sex toy retailer Lovehoney has recognized a steaming-hot gap in the advent market and filled it (literally) with a calendar of erotic treats for the second year running. The couples calendar, which retails at $150 but features $320 worth of products, choreographs a sequence of gifts to build up erotic tension on the lead-up to Christmas Eve. Inside the calendar's cardboard core houses bondage gear, nipple covers, vibrators, and butt plugs. Those deceptive little doors may even unearth new desires and have you experimenting with toys you wouldn't necessarily consider.
On the calendar, Lovehoney product director Bonny Hall explained, "Our research shows that Christmas is the friskiest time of the year for couples. . . . We have carefully picked the very best products available from Lovehoney for people to enjoy in the build-up to the big day." Warn your significant other with a selection of suggestive aubergine emoji, and read on for the calendar that will make this December steamier than a Christmas pudding.
