Ever since I attended one of Coco de Mer’s salons last year, I have wanted to own a LELO Pleasure Object. When Sam Roddick passed various sample vibrators around the group at her workshop, I marvelled at just how different they were to anything else in the shop, and also any I had used before. They were beautifully designed quality items that were sensuous to use – even when just testing the vibrations in the palm of your hand whilst sat in a room full of strangers! The firm yet

Thanks very much to everyone who entered the Playful Promises Pin-Up Panties competition. I really loved reading through all your fantastic stories but, after the first few were posted, I realised it was going to be impossible for me to judge this myself because so many of my lovely friends had chosen to submit entries.

What better way to start a new week here at Rarely Wears Lipstick, than with a competition?Not just any old giveaway either, this is one where you can get you hands on some absolutely gorgeous knickers and inject a little bit more glamour into your life.
