Today is a very special day - it's our 11th birthday!
This has been a big year for Lovehoney - we released the Official Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Collection, created the world's most discreet vibrator and sold over 2 million insertable inches!
To celebrate 11 years of award-winning service, we're giving away a £25 Lovehoney Gift Voucher to one lucky reader! Not only that, but five runners up get a Lovehoney Powerful Pocket Vibrator.
To be in with a chance to win, simply comment below with a birthday message especially for Lovehoney.
Write us a poem, entertain us with your favourite Lovehoney moment or tell us how you're celebrating to be in with a chance to win.
We'll be picking our favourite comment on Friday, April 26th so you have an extra week to get creative.
Have you ever been blown away by Lovehoney's service?
Is our way of making you feel involved and important different to other sex toy companies?
If your answer is "yes", we need your help!
The Internet Retailing Customer Award is looking for companies that really make an impact on a customer's experience by doing things that are different to the rest of the industry. They're looking for the things that make the customer go "wow".
Unlike other awards where we fill in long applications and crunch data, this award relies on YOUR nominations. We'd love to enter this award, and there's no other way than to ask you (nicely!) to nominate us. So...
Lovehoney has been named Best Internet Retail Site at the Xcite Book Awards for the second year running!
The annual awards held by the UK's leading publisher of erotica, Xcite Books, is a celebration of the most deserving companies, bloggers, authors and sex experts who are working to improve, explore and expand the world of erotica.
We also picked up the elusive Best Reviewer award for our outstanding contribution to erotica reviews, and it's all thanks to you! Your continued love of all things erotic and your honest feedback makes Lovehoney a friendly, helpful place to be, and we're so very grateful for all your contributions. Without you, it really couldn't happen.
All the votes were from lovely members of the public, so thank you for choosing us as your Best Internet Retail Site and Best Reviewer. We're over the moon!
Drumroll, please... after years of being asked for them, we can finally offer you Lovehoney.co.uk Gift Vouchers to send to a loved one.
You can purchase a voucher worth anything from £10 to £500, and have it delivered instantly by email to the lucky recipient.
Everything is previewable, so you can fiddle with how the gift voucher would look without even having to enter the checkout.
Go on, have a play!
Lovehoney.co.uk gift vouchers can be spent on anything available on Lovehoney.co.uk (but not on more gift vouchers, because that would just be madness.
And might break the internet.)
They're as flexible as using cash: you can spend all your voucher, more than your voucher (and make up the difference), less than your voucher (without losing the difference), or even more than one voucher at once. Oh, and they don't have an expiry date either.
Got a question? Check out our Lovehoney Gift Vouchers Help page, or add your question in a comment and we'll do our best to answer them!
On Lovehoney's contact page, amongst the "Where's my order?", "Technical site help" and "Question about a product" options, there's one called "I want to say something nice".
Have you ever seen it? Have you ever wondered what happens if you use it?
These emails get forwarded to the entire company.
On a day when the steam's coming off our fingers from coding and writing, or the queue of returns is longer than ever, being told 'something nice' gives everyone a warm glow. More than that, though, it's feedback like this that makes us feel that we don't just work in a sex toy warehouse - we're the sexual happiness people.
Here is one that was so uplifting, we wanted to share it:
We don't wish to hijack Toy With Me Tuesday (perish the thought!) so we ummed and ahhed about this one. But, it's been such a huge project for us here at HQ and we're excited to let the meme-followers be first in on the secret we've all been sitting on for such a long time: the announcement of the Official Fifty Shades of Grey Collection.
What did you get up to over the weekend? If you happened to be reading The People on Sunday, no doubt you will have spotted us featured in a double spread article by Tracey Cox, titled SEX TIPS: How To Keep Your Relationship Alive.
Alongside the colourful Lovehoney logo (standing out deliciously in the centre of the spread!) the piece featured a 24 top tips for keeping the spark in your love life, as well as scrummy picture of Tracey, erotic novel recommendations and how men are using Fifty Shades of Grey to get women into bed. (Hmmm... are they? Discuss.)
In keeping with Lovehoney’s mission for sexual happiness and wonderfully fulfilled sex lives, Tracey dished out 24 top tips to make sure your relationship doesn’t fall flat, including making time for a dirty weekend once every six weeks, and keeping your nether regions fit and healthy by investing in kegel balls for both pleasure and toning.
If you picked up this week's More! Magazine, you'll have spotted Lovehoney as the Workmates of the Week.
More! came to Lovehoney's HQ in Bath, armed with a camera and plenty of questions about our day-to-day lives.
Those interrogated included (from left to right) TV presenter and sexpert Annabelle Knight, Laura from Customer Care (of Adam's Cock fame), me, Hella, Lovehoney Co-Founder Neal Slateford (sometimes know as 'The Professor') and Lovehoney's Head Buyer Bonny Hall - all brandishing Happy Rabbits!

It's the secret we've been sitting (uncomfortably) on for 6 months now: Lovehoney is going to be the subject of a documentary on Channel 4.
After hours (and hours and hours) of being trailed by cameras, we're finally ready to take you behind the scenes here at Lovehoney.
More Sex Please, We're British is on at 10pm, Tuesday 8th May on Channel 4.
Everyone at Lovehoney has their favourite sex toy. Some, like the Customer Care team, need to know exactly how each toy feels in order to better help customers. For the rest of us, we all have something that we’ve seen and liked, or maybe was the first toy we bought when we started working here.
As the Head of Ecommerce at Lovehoney, my favourite toys are not just the ones I like, but the ones I know customers will like, and just as importantly, buy! So, in honour of our 10th Birthday, I thought I would run down the top 10 toys I love at Lovehoney.
