We may still be basking in the last of the summer sun, but thoughts are already turning to Christmas (there's only 107 days to go, y'know).
Many of the big beauty brands have already launched their advent calendars, and the boozy festive countdowns are also flying off the shelves.
But instead of ticking off the days till Christmas with your usual cheese or chocolate, how about thinking outside the advent box and investing in a countdown with a saucy twist: a sex toy advent calendar?
Designed to make the holiday season go with a buzz, Lovehoney has revealed their 2021 advent calendar and it's packed full of cute couples' sex toys.
The cheekiest way to countdown to Christmas, the saucy set contains a huge £370 worth of treats for £120, including the Womanizer Classic suction toy which costs £119.99 on its own.
Crammed full of everything from massagers to nipple clamps, beaded strokers to butt plugs, the sequence of 24 gifts has been carefully choreographed to build up erotic tension for a fantastic finale on Christmas Eve.
As well as a range of sex toys and playful accessories, the luxury box also includes saucy items such as sex position cards and foreplay dice.
It's been a huge hit in recent years, and this year's looks set to be no different, so if you're keen to add some kink to your Christmas countdown you might want to nab one early.
Commenting on the launch, a Lovehoney spokesperson said: "The 2021 sex toys calendar is the sexiest yet - and offers the best value with £370 worth of products for just £120.
"It is beautifully packaged with a gorgeous red box and products in tasteful red and pink colours.Read more: Ted Baker's limited-edition 2021 beauty advent calendar is here (and it's under £50)
