Each month, we give £100 worth of sex toys to the person who writes the Lovehoney Review of the Month. It's been a bumper crop this August and so, in true village fayre style, we will be highlighting some 'highly commended' reviews as well.
First things first, winning the £100 prize for August is new user and self-confessed "gentlemen of aesthetic discernment" Dirk Diggler with his review of the Dirty Fukker Jockstrap Underwear. Writing a piece that wouldn't be out of place in GQ magazine, the opening paragraph is a great scene-setter:
"Go to any high street department store, and it’s the same old story. Women’s lingerie takes up the best part of a floor, while men’s pants lurk disconsolately at the back of the shop like a hidden shame, with the choice on offer limited to chavvy boxer shorts and saggy-assed, passion-killing Y-fronts that your grandad would blush to be seen in. But things don’t have to be this way, and kudos is due to Lovehoney for making an effort to offer a selection of men’s underwear with some originality and flair."
So what of the jock strap itself? "Supportive, stylish and oh so salaciously sexy, the DF jock, despite its in-yer-face branding, is a class act all the way." And to drive his point home, he even uploaded a photo of himself wearing them. Great stuff Dirk!
If you want to get involved, check out our guide on how to write a killer review, get creative and then submit your sex toy or lingerie review.
Don't forget to take inspiration from August's highly commended reviews.
Lovehoney welcomes models of all shapes and sizes that are happy to upload photos of themselves wearing lingerie, in return for admiration, artistic appreciation, an ego-massage and the chance to win £100 worth of lingerie!
This month, we are delighted to announce that the winner of the £100 shopping spree is Toona, with a truly scrumptious pair of photos. Managing to capture the exhibitive essence of the Sven O Sheer Butt Contour Boxer Briefs while cleverly not revealing too much, we all agreed these pictures show real talent and a natural flare for photography. Lit to great erotic effect, the contoured shadows contrast with and compliment the masculine figure.
Take note, budding male models!
Yes he will most definitely feel something - and yes, they make flavoured ones!

From slipping a nobbly silicone sleeve onto your favourite vibrator or adding extra bullets to your cock rings, you've been busy making your sex toys better for you for a long time.
But if you've got a bullet that just won't cut it, or a dildo without adornment you might need some specialist equipment.
A word of warning: customising your sex toys is addictive.
So when a recent thread in the Lovehoney Forum mentioned a brand new silicone modelling material that allows you to customise and 'hack things better', we simply couldn't resist getting some of our own and fiddling about for your delight and amazement.
The material is called sugru and this is what we did with it:
It’s much easier to put a ring on before you’re erect - especially the one that goes around both your penis and scrotum.
Another week, another set of exceptional sex toy reviews. Product-wise, there have been some flops but there have also been some toys that are proving to be firm favourites. So good, in fact, that one Lovehoney reviewer states, "I can honestly say I am entirely happy to die right now".
So what has been pleasuring, and paining, you this week?
