Frisky Business

New episode
Wednesdays

10pm

Frisky Business is a cheeky peek into the lives of staff at the UK’s biggest sex toy retailer.

Warm, funny and frank, this observational series goes behind-the-scenes at successful business Lovehoney, which sells one out of every three sex toys bought online in the UK. The six-part series follows the colourful ups and downs of working life at the company’s HQ, a warehouse on a trading estate in the genteel city of Bath.

It's like a regular office but full of stuff YOUR office internet would block.

By buying all that rude stuff online in the comfort of your own home and pajamas, it is never entirely necessary to actually go into a sex shop. Lifetime writer Nell Frizzell has managed nearly three decades on this earth and never been in one, not even drunkenly on the way back from the pub for some reason. And now she’s in New Zealand. What are the sex shops like over there? Is everything a Lord of the Rings (sorry) parody? We sent her in to find out.

FRISKY BUSINESS I Have No Fetish: What's Wrong With Me? By Dale Shaw

Let me start off by saying: I don’t care. By which I mean, I don’t care what two, or more (up to around five, then I do care) human beings do to each other in private (or in Cul-De-Sacs if that’s your thing). As long as it’s not hurting anyone and not scuffing up my hardwood floors, go for it. You have my blessing or at least my complete disinterest. The problem isn’t you. Yes you, in the erotically designed stallion costume. It’s me.

FRISKY BUSINESS EPISODE 5 Recap by Kit Lovelace
SKY 156 / VIRGIN 242

As any good moneyman will tell you, diversity is key when creating a successful business. So this week we get to see some of the other interests that make up the Lovehoney portfolio. One area in which the company has branched out is the luxury market. Coco de Mer is Lovehoney’s high-end imprint and owners Richard and Neal decide to take a trip over to the London store to see what the exclusive erotic boutique is offering their more discerning clientele.

FRISKY BUSINESS 5 Sex Toys For Couples By Monica Heisey

Look, everyone loves a classic missionary P in V. (We all love that, right? It's a classic for a reason.) But once in a while, say after watching too many hours of Frisky Business while eating cheese in sweatpants, you look at your partner and think: "We have to do something about this. Something battery-operated." Here's what you should do.

FRISKY BUSINESS Five things to remember when shopping for sex toys By Limara Salt

Reportedly, three in five British couples use a sex toy every time they have sex, so if you’re not burning your electricity bill regularly charging toys you’re in the minority. But it’s never too late to start, so here are five things to remember when shopping for sex toys...

FRISKY BUSINESS EPISODE 2 Recap by Kit Lovelace
SKY 156 / VIRGIN 242

I first read about rusty trombones in the back pages of Viz a few years ago. A rusty trombone (also known as a 'Dirty Bristow’, if you’re more au fait with that phrase) is a niche sexual act and, quite honestly, not one that I ever thought I’d hear explained on television. Yet that is exactly what happened in last night's episode of Frisky Business.

FRISKY BUSINESS Dil-dos and Dil-don’ts: sex toys through history By Sarah Morgan

FRISKY BUSINESS THE 5 WORST TIMES THAT SEX TOYS RUINED MY LIFE BY ISSY SAMPSON

I’ve been alive for thirty whole years now, and I like to think of myself as a fairly confident, open-minded person. After all, I speak as someone who’s interviewed upwards of 100 people about their sex lives, heard intimate details of one night stands and put my hand up at an actual F1 press conference and asked Lewis Hamilton what his favourite Pussycat Dolls song was. I’d like to say that I’m pretty much made of steel. But every now and again, something so embarrassing happens that I consider leaving London, finding a lovely dark cave somewhere, and living off roadkill and the occasional Ocado delivery until all of mankind has died off in some kind of nuclear accident and I can re-emerge without the risk of meeting anyone’s eye. Yes. That bad. And weirdly, all of those moments included a sex toy. What I’m saying is: the Lovehoney warehouse. I’d probably die of blushing.

FRISKY BUSINESS EPISODE 1 RECAP By Kit Lovelace
SKY 156 / VIRGIN 242

When watching this first episode of Frisky Business, it was a constant source of surprise to me that anyone managed to get anything done at the Lovehoney warehouse. There are willies everywhere. EVERYWHERE. On top of computers, piled up on shelves, sticking out of the walls like makeshift coathooks. Personally, I’d have found the temptation to creep up on my colleagues and wipe a big silicone sausage across the back of their necks too overwhelming to cope with. But these people are serious professionals. They have made dilds their business – and they're damn good at it too.

Annabelle is Lovehoney's presenter which means that she gets to do the videos that go on the website explaining the toys. It also means that customers can see the giant dildo they're thinking of buying stood next to a real life human, for scale. Which, judging from the returns letters, they immediately ignore.
