2014 has been a BIG year at Lovehoney and while we're already excited for everything 2015 has to hold, now is a good time to look back on an amazing year and, let's face it, get just a tad nostalgic!
Between landing our own reality TV series, debuting a whole load of exciting new products and launching our own lingerie brand, 2014 has been The Year of Lovehoney in many ways!
It's also been an exciting year for sex toys in general, with pleasure products getting more and more technologically advanced.
In what's fast becoming an annual tradition (see 2012 and 2013), here's our round up of the 14 most exciting sex trends of 2014.
Remember to leave a comment with your favourite bits of this past year!
From everyone at Lovehoney, we'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and New Year.
2014 has been a very exciting year at Lovehoney HQ, and we're looking forward to everything to come in 2015.
Regular blog readers will know that we like to make your Christmas even happier with a festive secret sale.
We've chosen some of our favourite luxury products and slashed the price for one day only. Just add the item to your basket as usual and you'll see the discount at the checkout.
This offer is only available today and only while stock lasts, so hurry up and grab a bargain before it's too late!
Once again, have a very Happy Christmas from everyone at Lovehoney.
If there's one thing that never fails to make us smile at Lovehoney HQ, it's reading your happy feedback.
We love when our customers take the time to tweet, Facebook or email us nice comments.
Whether you're getting in touch because you love your purchases, have been taken care of by our award-winning Customer Care team, or even just because you've seen us on the telly - we always love to hear from you.
In fact, we have a tradition of sharing special comments with the whole company via email to spread extra cheer, and given that the year is coming to an end, I thought it would be nice to share some with you...
Below are my favourite customer comments (and one drawing!) from 2014. Feel free to get in touch with us via Twitter, Facebook, email or in the comments below.
We love strong vibrations here at Lovehoney. In fact, we even have a whole category called Extra Powerful Vibrators that's filled with our hand-picked, tried-and-tested vibrators that are guaranteed to give you the most bang for your buck. A recent addition to this prestigious group is the ROCKBOX Finger Thrusting Vibrator (£34.99), and it certainly lives up to its name!
With an incredibly strong motor, this thrusting sex toy provides powerful stimulation that is unbelievably intense - that's why we recommend it for advanced users!
If you've been watching the Lovehoney documentary Frisky Business on Lifetime or Netflix, you'll be familiar with the Rockbox Finger. There's a memorable scene where co-founder Neal shows the initial prototype to customer care advisor Chelsea, and her reaction says it all!
Below we have a chat with the inventor of the Rockbox Finger to find out where the inspiration comes from...
It's finally December and our excitement for Christmas is at an uncontrollable level!
In the spirit of giving, we have decided to launch a massive Advent Calendar Giveaway.
Our Advent Calendar is slightly different to the cardboard windows you once peeled back to reveal some very questionable milk chocolates.
This time around, we're giving you, our glorious customers, the chance to win 25 of our best selling products over the course of Christmas.
All you have to do is follow us on Twitter @Lovehoney and retweet our Advent Calendar tweets from each day.
We will be giving away a different prize every day to one lucky person*, so make sure you keep your eyes on our Twitter!
Good luck and Merry XXXmas!
Last month we introduced you to bodystockings, knickers and stockings from our very own Lovehoney Lingerie collection.
We were blown away by your kind words and rave reviews about our own-brand lingerie, and I'm delighted to announce some new additions to the collection.
Our lingerie department have worked hard to take on board your feedback about what you liked and didn't like about our existing range of sexy lingerie, and they've come up with 3 wonderful lines that I think you'll all love: Spoil Me, Love Me and Covet Me.
Whether you prefer slinky, sexy chemises from the Spoil Me satin collection, lusty lace from Love Me or raunchy see-through mesh from Covet Me range, we have something for everyone. All items are available in base sizes (UK 6 -16) and plus sizes (UK 18-24).
Read on to see our favourite pieces from the stunning new collection...
Introducing the Happy Rabbit 2: Natural and G-Spot rabbit vibrators that are even better than the originals. We launched the original Happy Rabbit vibrators in 2012, and they quickly became your favourite Rabbit Vibrators. A welcome change from battery powered vibes, the Happy Rabbits were mains rechargeable and made of silky smooth silicone.
So how could the Happy Rabbit get even better? Well, we looked at your customer reviews and took on board your feedback to make an improved, happier rabbit.
The new Happy Rabbits are USB rechargeable, have 150% more power, and an improved shape for better clitoral stimulation. Available in Natural and G-Spot shapes, the Happy Rabbit vibes are now 100% waterpoof, and even have more vibrating settings. But one thing has stayed the same - the smooth silicone shaft and whisper-quiet motors you know and love.
Want to experience to incredible power of the Happy Rabbit 2? Read on below to find out how you can win one!

If you've been reading the Lovehoney blog for a while, you'll remember us raving about Jon Millward's studies in the past (we've talked about his analysis of porn stars, as well as his survey of call girls in Britain). This "Ideas Detective" really impressed us by taking mind-boggling data and presenting it in a simple but fun way.
In fact, we were so amazed by his fascinating articles that we got in touch to see if he'd be interested in doing an analysis of Lovehoney, and - you guessed it - he said yes!
We're so pleased and proud to present the world's biggest analysis of sex toy sales - ever! We gave Jon access to non-personal data (don't worry, we would never share your personal information with anyone) from 1 million sales over a 5 month period, and his insights are incredible.
If you've ever wondered which sex spends the most on toys, which porn star is most popular or who writes the longest sex toy reviews on Lovehoney, check out our top 10 most interesting at-a-glance stats below. You can also read the full report by Jon or see our abridged version of the results. Happy exploring!
Here at Lovehoney, we think everyone should be able to enjoy a pleasurable, fun and safe sex life. That's why we were happy to donate 1,000 condoms to raTrust, an organisation working to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. They staged an event in Bournemouth this past weekend and made this incredible video - check it out below:
