Design A Sex Toy 2009 - Judgement Day
From July to December 2009, I had the pleasure of watching my inbox fill with entries for Lovehoney's Design A Sex Toy Competition.
From the erotic to the exotic, the wacky to the how-in-the-heck-did-someone-think-of-that, over 500 would-be sex toy inventors embraced the challenge.
Sadly there could only be one winner, so it was time to get brutal and bring on the judges!
