If it is shoved away in a draw - shame on you.

All it takes is a little bit of inspiration to make both your dildo and any other nestled away kinky items fit right in with your decor - as perfectly demonstrated by photographer Will Ablett in this new series of photographs for sex toy retailer Lovehoney.

It's only a matter of time until 50 Shades part deux comes our way London! With it will come another large sway of excitement when it comes to sex toys and everyone across the capital will start toying with the idea of butt plugs... mark our words. So why not get ahead of the game - instagram your desk space fully utilising nipple clips, share a picture of your latest Bake Off effort with a cheeky paddle in the background....be proud of your naughties!

For further inspiration here is Will Ablett's new set of photographs entitled Domesticated Sex Toys.

For the photographs, Lovehoney’s best-selling sex toys were placed in domestic settings, in a subtle and original set of images that would not look out of place in a high-end, glossy magazine.

Will’s unique collection of photographs has earned him a place as a finalist in the TRAJECTORY Graduate showcase, taking place at theprintspace Gallery between 20 Oct – 2 November 2016. The highly competitive competition is to find the most talented photography graduates in the UK.

Will said, “This project is a visual response to the increase in sales seen by Lovehoney after the release of the official Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Collection. The images point to a growing popularity of sex toys and their place in people's homes and call to question our conception of sex toys, normality and day-to-day life.”

Helen Balmer, Brand & Marketing Director at Lovehoney said, “We were delighted to collaborate with Will and we’re thrilled that his work has started to achieve the recognition it deserves.”

We popped along to the launch of Tony Briggs new book, Your Own Soho last week at Blacks in Soho. Full to the bring of creatives inspired to save Soho from impending development and loss of deep rooted, long cultivated creativity.

A collaboration with fashion label Roux and Kastner & Partners the book aims to raise both money and awareness for the cause close to many creative Londoner's hearts, including our own.

Tony Briggs Your Own Soho is the product of a collaboration between iconic photographer Tony Briggs, menswear label Roux. and advertising agency Kastner & Partners in London (K&P). Captured during the spring and summer of 2015, this selection of images is a snapshot in time, showcasing the many, varied and unique faces and voices that make Soho one of the most fascinating and colourful corners of planet earth.

Tony was initially approached to shoot authentic Soho characters for Roux.’s Autumn/Winter 15 advertising campaign. But it soon became apparent that agency, brand and Tony all shared a common concern about the future of this fabulous square mile. As property developers make increasing inroads into the fabric of the area, will it still be the same in another five years? Can its spirit survive the onslaught? It was these concerns, with the backing of Roux., K&P and the support of so many Soho people, businesses and institutions, that brought Your Own Soho to life. ROUX_TonyBriggsBook_Spreads_AW.indd

Every penny of profit from sales goes towards the Save Soho campaign (savesoho.com) so ably led by Tim Arnold. And to raising awareness around what we stand to lose if we don’t stand together. ROUX_TonyBriggsBook_Spreads_AW.indd

This is Iris Della Roca's debut London solo show.

In 2009, photographer Iris Della Roca moved to Rio, Brazil and start living in the favela of Rocinha. There she worked for a NGO with kids and built a special bound with them.

As she considers photography a collaborative art, she began a project where the kids could express their unique personality and show who they really are, far from social membership and cliché. She asked the question: "How do you want to be seen by others?" 

Each child poses in their own way, some imagine themselves as movie stars, others as models of glamorous fashion magazines or fairytale characters.

Iris Della Roca, 29, works and lives between France and Brazil. She grew up on her dad's boat, moving from place to place giving her the joy of not being attached to anyone.  She chooses photography as her medium as it is connected to reality and permits interaction with  others. She needs to tell true stories, about people and their realities, seeking for hope and poetry, in everyone’s intimity.

Iris Della Roca is part of World Wide Women, a creative collective of female photographers and artists from around the world. World Wide Women represents the free, indomitable spirit of women in the world of art today.
