• Miss char model of the month

    August was a busy month in the Lovehoney community, with dozens of people uploading sexy photos to our Model of the Month competition.

    With so many sexy shots, it was tough to choose just one person to win the grand prize: £100 to spend on sex toys and lingerie at Lovehoney.

    After plenty of debating, we finally choose the stunning MissChar as overall winner, with this gorgeous photo showing off the Exposed Liquid Onyx Keyhole Wet Look Bra and Knicker Set (£26.99) beautifully.

    The dramatic black and white image shows off the wet look lingerie to perfection and demonstrates the seductive power of a suggestive pose.

    Accesorised with nothing but jewellery, MissChar shows that less can definitely be more when it comes to sexy lingerie.

    As well as choosing our favourite user uploaded image to win the top prize, we also select runners up receive 2,000 Oh! Points to spend as they choose.

    To enter, just snap a shot of your favourite Lovehoney purchase, and don't forget to get creative! Be sure to read the photo guidelines before you begin.

    Bombshell Balm Wins Review of the Month

    Fancy adding to Lovehoney's 152,000 customer product reviews and be in with a chance to win? Every month we choose the best new user-uploaded review to receive £100 to spend at Lovehoney. Read our guide to Writing Winning Product Reviews to get started.

    The winner for August is lmrlh with her take on the Pin Ups Betty Bombshell Balm in Cherry (£6.99). We loved her enthusiasm and helpful tips about using the orgasm balm to get in the mood.

    She notes: "The balm itself is gorgeous. It smells good enough to eat, and melts and penetrates into the skin so that you don't have to worry about the effect going away when things get slippery! Try not to be put off by the size - it's truly a tiny amount of product, but all you need really is to dip a finger in, let the product melt, and then apply. I don't even think I made a dent in mine despite a few applications."

    Win a Bathmate Xtreme If you've ever read a gossip magazine or watched Sex and the City, you'll have noticed that people tend to get obsessed with penis size.

    But does the size of his penis really matter during lovemaking? While our female community members seem to agree that size isn't everything, you can't ignore the fact that many men just want to be bigger.

    When it comes to penis pumps, there's one brand that stands out. Bathmate pumps are different from other products because they use the force of water to increase the length and girth of your penis, making them 250% more efficient than air pumps!
