A typical day in the life at Lovehoney can often lead to unusual and unusually entertaining conversations and to equally unusual parts of the Internet. Currently we're stroking our chins over how best to make fake vaginas and marvelling at the ingenuity displayed by people who have had similar thoughts.
The classic site Home Made Sex Toys has a great article on how to make a Fleshlight style masturbator, which is quite possibly the best use of an empty Pringles tube we've ever seen.
"When stored with the lid on, the homemade flashlight can be conveniently camouflaged as an innocent can of potato chips," says the site. Yes, camouflaged right up to the moment that your mum comes round and reaches for the pre-dinner nibbles...
Over at Steady Health there's a fantastic thread which details how to turn a towel and a rubber glove into an uncannily realistic fake vagina. It does sound fantastically complicated though. I know I'm biased, but I would suggest that treating yourself to a male sex toy from Lovehoney is a lot less hassle (and, dare I say it, a lot more fun).
But it's great to see someone pitch in with some great, succinct advice: "Bubble wrap and ice pack quite good"
Usually we see the Review of the Month posts dominated by vibrators, but not this month. This month dildos, butt plugs and even a penis pump have made it into our monthly selection of helpful and well written reviews.
Review of the Month
New member Krys was the author of our favourite review this month. By explaining her experience and clearly stating the pros and cons for other people, there's no doubt she will have helped people umm-ing and ahh-ing over glass dildos to take the plunge.
Read the full review here to find out what changed her mind!
Have you tried something new recently? Surprised by the result? Why not write a review describing your experience and let everyone know how it went (good or bad!). Real reviews written by real people are so important for helping you choose the right toy... and they're good fun to read even if you're just window shopping.
To reward the writers of sex toy reviews, we give £100 worth of sex toys to the person who writes the best Lovehoney Review of the Month. We also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with 2000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish - or save up for something special.
Lovehoney is delighted to introduce some truly regal vibrations for you to indulge in as you celebrate the marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales to Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on Friday 29th April, 2011.
The Commemorative Royal Wedding Ring £1.00 lets you rejoice in the regal union of pleasure with the added buzz as you slip it onto your very own Prince Charming and enjoy the mutually-stimulating benefits during your private (or public) display of affection.
A truly unique item of Royal Wedding memorabilia, we are confident that this love ring will deliver more pleasure than a commemorative Royal wedding plate and even better, it is made from stretchy silicone to accommodate most Royal members. With six batteries included, you can be assured that your post-nuptial celebrations won't be cut short and you can mark the commencement of pleasurable vibrations by reading the inscripted vows on the packaging.
Delivering a Royal performance at a price suitable for the general public, it will be a consumation of love you'll never forget as the powerful vibrations just keep coming from this Royal blue ring.
"This ring I take from you as a token of your love and devotion to me. I pledge to you all that I am and all that I will ever be as your husband. With this ring, I gladly marry you and join my life to yours..."
Why not tell him you’d like to give him as much pleasure as he gives you?
Each month we choose one Model of the Month to win £100 to spend on sex toys, sexy lingerie or sexy costumes. This month's pick of the crop features stockings, shoes and a little bit of kink.
Winning the title of March's Model of the Month, and the £100 shopping spree, is bug7177 for showing us these Fence Net Stockings in a totally new light. Innovative, technically brilliant and able to turn heads, even at LHHQ! We felt this was the stand-out picture from a particularly competitive month, where we had over 300 customer photos submitted. Crikey!
If you fancy a chance to win a £100 shopping spree on Lovehoney, just upload a picture of yourself wearing sexy lingerie or costumes and check back next month!
We loved the stockings, shoes and kink theme and so have decided to also award 2000 Oh! Points to three other beautiful, real people who submitted stunning photos of themselves in Lovehoney's sexy lingerie.
Congratulations to: hotshot1, Pixie_Murree, Mr & Miss Amps.

Oxford University may have been four lengths ahead in this year's Boat Race, but Cambridge University is four times more sexy.
We have pitted the UK's two foremost prestigious Universities, renowned more for their brains than their sexiness, against one another in a bid to find out who spends less time in the library, and more time in the bedroom!
Whilst Oxford University won the Boat Race, Cambridge University students would certainly win the horizontal marathon, buying four times more sex toys than Oxford students.
Amongst the most popular products bought by Cambridge's seemingly rather affluent students are luxury vibrators, such as the Lelo Liv Luxury Rechargeable Vibrator. Oxford students lived up to their bookish reputations, spending 2.3 times the national average on erotic books. The romantically inclined Oxford students spend 2.2 times the national average on sex toys for couples, perhaps indicating their more considerate, sharing nature.
This is not the first time Oxbridge has been linked to more saucy activities. Popular blog Sex at Oxbridge follows the expoits of an unidentified Oxbridge student, as she battles her way through the minefield that is the student dating scene. Judging by our research, we'd be willing to bet she's a Cambridge student!
Baci is a relatively new name in the world of sexy lingerie and the hotly anticipated collection from Baci Lingerie has just touched down at Lovehoney. Baci's sensual range combines beautiful lingerie with affordability and with prices starting at £2.99, Baci offers sexy lingerie to suit every pocket.
Baci (pronounced BAH-chee) is Italian for kisses, a befitting name for this stunning lingerie collection. Baci Lingerie combines sexy design with quality fabrics so you can choose thongs, bra sets, chemises and sexy ensembles to make memorable moments happen.
Each piece of Baci Lingerie comes in elegant packaging, featuring gorgeous photography reminiscent of the highest-end lingerie brands. Baci Lingerie would make a wonderful, but affordable gift.
There are floaty chemises and babydolls for a demurely sexy look, as well as micro thongs, peek-a-boo bras and crotchless underwear for a raunchier style. The 'One Size' option makes it easy for you to choose something that will fit. Most Baci Lingerie One Size pieces have adjustable thongs and bra straps - just check the description for full details.
As well as being sexy and playful, Baci Lingerie is practical too, with the majority of the range being machine washable.
The new collection is colourful and exciting, with many pieces coming in a variety of vibrant shades to add a splash of colour for the Spring/Summer season.
An exciting addition to our stunning and varied collection of sexy lingerie and you get free UK delivery and returns at Lovehoney so you can shop in confidence.
