Everyone is a fan of a naughty bedtime read and here at Lovehoney we have been revelling in the fine selection of erotic literature on offer, taking us into the autumnal months when staying at home with tales of fantasy and sexual adventure with a nice cup of tea is extremely tempting.
October's Book of the Month is The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 9, an unputdownable collection of erotica, featuring 42 new stories of naughty encounters, selected from every corner of the world.
If the October Erotic Book of the Month tickles your fancy, we have only gone and added to its appeal with the offer of a 10 Function Stimulating G-Spot Wand Vibrator worth £21.99 when you purchase the book. The combination of a fine selection of literature with an extremely fine pleasure toy is certainly one with winning potential you could say!
We also have lots of new erotic novels including Subduing Jacqueline, an erotic tale of one man's mysterious power over his female staff and Girl Trade, a tale of a captive jewel dedicated to the pleasures of flesh in all its shapes and sizes.
Have a great October and may it be filled with a great selection of erotic literature to keep you entertained and satisfied!

Because reviews help everyone decide what is going to be the best toy for them, we love it when you take the time to write in-depth and honest reviews. Each month, we give £100 worth of sex toys to the person who writes the Lovehoney Review of the Month. But wait! We'll also be choosing four highly commended reviews and rewarding them with 2000 Oh! Points a piece. So without further ado, it's time to announce who we chose as September's overall winner.
Review of the Month
The winner was SlipperyWhenWet with his review of the Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Female Harness Kit. As well as an excellent overview of the pros and cons of the product, it was peppered with humour.
"Well for a long time it's been my wish (ok, my fantasy) to have my lovely other half give me a good pounding with a strap-on - and guess what? Lovehoney and this harness "fixed it" for me! And all without a "Dear Jim" letter or a tracksuit in sight!"
Now then, now then. You asked where your medal was... will £100 of sex toys do instead?

Highly commended sex toy and lingerie reviews in September
Enjoying Grab Bag Day™ was Bashful Babe who managed to snaffle a long wished for Seven Seas Waterproof Double Stimulator Rabbit Vibrator. If you're looking for a toy that ticks all your boxes, it seems this is the one!
Read the review.
Ever fancied having a go at Vajazzling? If you have, but weren't quite sure than masterandslave's review of the Bijoux Flamboyant Vajazzling Body Jewellery gives an excellent introduction. And any review that uses the word 'merkin' so often is certainly a winner in our books.

There's nothing quite like reading a review by someone who just adored their toy, and titania's review of the Sinclair Institute Select Crytal G CyberGlass Dildo fits the criteria.

Don't forget to take inspiration from September's winner and highly commended reviews!
Lovehoney encourages all our body confident customers to doll themselves up and upload photos of themselves wearing gorgeous lingerie for the chance to win a £100 Lovehoney trolley dash!
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the £100 shopping spree is welshrarebit because, in Hella Rouge's words, "she's got a great arse". Uploading three different photos, welshrarebit showed a variety of killer outfits (and some drool-worthy heels). The perky posterior was not just our reason for choosing this photo to win however. On closer inspection, it appears the photographer was distracted not by the ravishing rear, but by a game of snooker! We feel the sex toy spree may well come in handy during the snooker season.
Remember: composition, composition, composition!
Too tired, exhausted or busy for sex? Rediscover each other as lovers and welcome back your libido.
Here at Lovehoney we're constantly thinking of new and innovative ways that we can minimise our impact on the environment.
We have already launched the world's first sex toy recycling scheme, Rabbit Amnesty, which encourages you to send back your clapped out vibrators – and in return you get money off a sparkly new one! We take the vibrators to SWEEEP who recycle them for us, and for every one that's sent in, we donate £1 to our friends at the World Land Trust, who save threatened tropical rain forests.
It can take planes, trains, cars and sometimes even boats to make sure we get the right sex toys to you on time. All this global galavanting can lead to quite a large carbon footprint, so we make sure that we offset our emissions annually with the World Land Trust Carbon Balancing Scheme.
Our newest friends are the International Tree Foundation, a UK-based tree charity that plants and protects trees in the UK and overseas to offset the carbon emissions generated by our servers. ITF will be planting native British tree species, such as Beech, Oak, and Ash through out the winter period on behalf of Rackspace and Lovehoney.
