When you think of Good Housekeeping magazine, you're probably met with images of recipe ideas, vacuum cleaner product reviews and articles about how to get your soufflé to rise just right.
What you might not associate with this straight-laced publication is their totally-filthy, annual Tried and Tested survey to find the best sex toys on the market.
Well now you know, and guess what? We came out on top (this is our favourite position FYI).
The Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator was voted numero uno out of 25 vibes put to the test by a panel of 270 women. It got an overall score of 74/100 and hit the spot with nine out of 10 women.
In fact, Lovehoney vibes accounted for seven out of the 25 carefully-selected toys. Check out which ones made the cut and what the experts at Good Housekeeping had to say about them below.
It's time to announce our latest Review of the Month, and I'm pleased to say that the £100 gift voucher is going to a veritable Lovehoney veteran. Sex Squid uploaded their first sex toy review in 2006, meaning they've been a proud part of our community for a decade. We're impressed!
Of course, we were also impressed by their wonderful review of the Vixen Mustang VixSkin Bright Realistic Dildo with Suction Cup 7 Inch, which includes a comparison to the Mustang Royale.
"I'm sure I'm not alone in finding that this joyous dick makes me want to burst into song! It's just so happy-looking. And as with my other Vixen dildos, it feels simply incredible. The VixSkin dual density silicone is remarkable. It's squishier than a real cock, but I don't see that as a bad thing. In fact, riding it anally, or when worn in a harness for pegging, it's lovely squashiness makes it more comfortable for anal than any other toy I've tried. When thrust deep and hard, the head can bump against your insides without causing you any discomfort, which means there's no need for your partner to pause. A submissive's dream then!"

We all know how much sex toys can improve our love lives, but what else are they good for?

You’ve found the dress, the caterer’s booked, and you’ve managed to tweak the seating plan so Aunt Ruth isn’t sitting anywhere near Uncle Terry. But what about the honeymoon?
We all know that the very word, ‘Honeymoon’ is synonymous with ‘bonking like rabbits’, and no wonder.
Traditionally used to refer to the month after the wedding (which many believed to be the 'sweetest period' of marriage), it was expected to be the time when the bride and groom developed both their physical and spiritual connection.
Well, other than the fact the majority of us are no longer virgins come the wedding night, little has changed. Many view the honeymoon as one of the most passionate times of their lives, which is great - although it has a tendency to put a heck of a lot of pressure on your sexual performance.
But don't fret! To ensure your post-nuptial couplings go off without a hitch, here are eight nuggets of sexpert advice. It's time to start married life with a bang. Or several.

Today, Lovehoney is the UK's biggest online adult retailer, but it's not always been like this...
Back in April 2002, *NSYNC were topping the charts with "Girlfriend", people of the UK were taking to the streets to celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee, and friends Richard Longhurst and Neal Slateford were off down the local post office to buy a sex-toy-sized envelope after their first ever sale.
We've come a long way since our humble beginnings and we're so glad that you've been part of our sexually happy journey.
Sex toys are all about making your pleasure even greater, and we love hearing about people who have transformed their sex lives and masturbation by adding a toy to their routine.
That's why we loved this recent toy review from ManItFeelsLikeSpaceAgain (great username, btw!) who blagged the bargain of the lifetime when he picked up the Lovehoney Lifelike Eva Super Tight Pocket Pussy on sale.
"It feels absolutely incredible. It's like having sex with a goddess. So tight, so realistic feeling. For me, I ended up poking out the end slightly, but this wasn't a bad thing, as I needed respite from how great the toy feels."
"Overall, this is a great product, very good value and I'm glad that I decided to buy one. The only downside is I have used it so much that I now need to buy more lube." Read the full review here.
