Between the long evenings made for snuggling and the all-important Valentine’s Day, February is definitely the month of love - and we certainly saw plenty of romance-inspired photography in February’s Model of the Month competition.
Each month, we give Lovehoney Community Members the chance to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney by uploading a picture of themselves in sexy lingerie. Congratulation to tracey3x who is the winner of this month’s competition with a romantic shot of a couple sharing a tender kiss.
We loved how tracey3x captures an intimate moment between lovers in this simple but stunning shot. The clever placement of her partner’s hand accentuates the sex appeal of the Fantasy Lace Garter Belt while her lace-topped stockings complete the look.
We're wondering what makes the nation tick when it comes to getting in the mood for sex (or what the most common reasons are for not being up for it!).
Are you most likely to have sex on a lazy Sunday morning, or as part of your weekday pre-bedtime routine?
How does your partner show they're interested, and what most commonly sparks sex with your partner - a cheeky grope, a kiss, a glass or two of wine?
With this quick little survey, you can help us find out the answers!
As a thank you for completing our Fast & Frisky Survey, we're giving you the chance to win a Lelo Indulgence Kit, which includes a Lelo Insignia Alia Luxury Massager (£109.99) and a Lelo Tantra Feather Tickler (£24.99).
Competition closes on the 11th March 2013. The winner will be contacted by email.
We all start off the year with the best of intentions, but by the time February comes to a close we’ve often abandoned our exercise routines and weight loss goals and reverted to bad habits.
If you need an incentive to keep up your healthy eating plan, just think about your sex life. Eating well not only makes you look and feel better, there’s also evidence that a balanced diet could boost your libido.
While the aphrodisiac properties of oysters may be exaggerated, eating a balanced, nutrient-rich diet ensures you have plenty of energy to burn in the bedroom, leaving both you and your partner satisfied.
Not only do the right foods improve your sex life from the inside, it can be fun to stimulate your taste buds during sex with some delicious low calorie flavoured lube to lick off your partner.
We’re giving away FIVE bumper Sliquid Swirl flavoured lube bundles! Simply comment below before March 1st for your chance to win.

Review of the Month
Having racked up 99 customer reviews, we felt this review by laceandglitter summed up precisely why the Lovehoney Magic Wand Deluxe Massager has proved to be such a phenomenally popular toy.
"I received this as a gift from my boyfriend a couple of months ago. I intended to review it earlier, but I just haven't been able to leave the bedroom since then! Seriously, though, this is the best vibrator I own. I sometimes think it's the best one I'll ever own."

Each month we also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with a whopping 2,000 Lovehoney Oh! Points to spend as they wish, or perhaps save up to spend on a luxury sex toy. Read on to find out who the runners up were...

January is officially the stay-at-home month of empty pockets and cold weather, so we’re truly glad to welcome February, the month of love, into our lives.
The Lovehoney Community made good use of the quietest social month of the year by filling our Photo Gallery to the brim with an array of saucy, sexy photos showing off some of our finest wares.
Competition for first prize was fierce as so many members uploaded incredible photos, but in the end we chose LooneyTunes as our overall winner for this stunning shot of her showing off a full outfit bought at Lovehoney (minus the top hat).
Dressed in the Music Legs Satin and Lace Corset with Matching G-String, a pair of Seven Til Midnight Lace Elbow Length Gloves and a fluffy Feather Boa, she’s created a classy shot that shows off both the front and back of her outfit while keeping her anonymity stylishly intact. Brava!

One of Lovehoney's 13 Sex Predictions for 2013 was that technology would give us new ways to stimulate - and only a month into the year, we're already seeing sex toys get more high tech.
The Hello Touch by Jimmyjane debuted at the XBIZ Pleasure Products conference in Los Angeles (where Lovehoney won International Pleasure Products Company of the Year, by the way).
This futuristic sex toy features two vibrating pads that slip over the wearer fingers to be used anywhere on the body.
The novel sex toy has gone down a storm in the tech and sex world - it's been called "the best sex toy ever invented" by Gizmodo and "vibrator of the future" by Slate.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we've been thinking about the joys of kissing.
Philematology (that's the scientific word for snogging) is not only fun, but it also has surprising help benefits - dentists believe kissing stimulates saliva production, preventing a build up of plaque.
The occasional kiss is also thought to alleviate the symptoms of hayfever, as well as producing endorphins that relieve stress and boost self-esteem.
To celebrate the joys of kissing, we've rounded up the best kissing-related articles from around the web for your Sunday reading pleasure.
