With the amount of product reviews we've received this month, we reckon Bank Holidays ought to be renamed...
We've been sent literally hundreds of brilliant, informative and funny reviews, and each one helps our customers make well-informed decisions when shopping with us. However, only one can be chosen as our 'Review of the Month' prize winner. Drum roll please...
Review of the Month
"First impressions: this plug is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't find a single flaw anywhere on it! I've been hankering over the clear crystal for months and it didn't disappoint; like the rest of the gems in the Rosebuds range, it reflects fragments of light into what looks like a mini nebula effect under dim lighting, which is not only pretty but also a little humorous... What's not funny about being able to cast dancing kaleidoscope lights on the wall by wiggling your butt?"
That's just a snippet of sleepycelia's review of the Julian Snelling Rosebud Light Aluminium Large Jewelled Butt Plug (£49.99) which won her a £100 Lovehoney voucher!
Not only did her review thoroughly describe every aspect of the plug, she also added a touch of humour by describing how she earned the nickname 'Princess Sparklebutt'. Read the rest of sleepycelia's review here.

At Lovehoney, we've always prided ourselves in offering top notch customer care. Our mantra since the beginning has been "We're not happy unless you're happy!"
That's stayed our goal during the past twelve years, and with the launch of Lovehoney.com.au, Lovehoney.de and (coming soon) Lovehoney.fr, we have more of a widespread customer base which means a higher customer demand. So, we've been racking our brains to come up with ways to make the customer experience even more outstanding.
In November, we wrote about our new Customer Care office in sunny Brisbane, Australia. The increased staffing levels, along with the time difference, meant we were able to respond to customer queries for longer periods and in quicker, slicker timeframes.
I'm pleased to announce that from this week, we will be further extending our hours to provide 24/7 customer care! That's right - all day every day, there will be an advisor ready to answer your phone calls, live chats and emails.
Result? Sexual happiness is always just a call away! Now, what to do for the other 23 hours and 45 minutes?
Ever wondered how to make your erection bigger, or how to last longer in bed?
This video is the first in a series of five videos by international sex expert Tracey Cox, designed to dispel sex myths, present the facts and talk about all the things that frustrate men today.
Tracey will be offering invaluable hints, tips and general advice on how to improve your sexual performance and maintain the health of your penis.
Each video in the series works in conjunction with Tracey's new EDGE range – a product range for men designed to help improve performance in bed.
The first video in the series focuses on perhaps one of the most misunderstood and underestimated sex toys out there – the penis pump – and how it can help boost erection size and strength.
Check out Tracey's EDGE collection to discover how her new range for men can boost pleasure and performance during solo and shared use. Scroll down to watch the video.
The moment the DOMINIX Deluxe Adjustable Nipple Clamp Bars (£9.99) arrived on our desks, the avid knitters at Lovehoney envisioned an alternative use for them... And we just had to have a fun photoshoot to show you what we were thinking!

It's that time of the month again when we announce our Model of the Month Competition winners, and we had tons of amazing submissions to choose from in April.
This month's overall winner is pink-ivy who has sent in this captivating shot of her wearing the Seven Til Midnight Sheer Lace Top Thigh High Stockings (£4.00).
We loved the shadowy, sepia finish and the super-flattering pose she's used that helped her stand out. The photo showcases the stockings and highlights her natural curves to perfection, which is exactly what we look for in a prize winning picture.
Not to mention the fact I can't stop looking at it, which makes it a worthy winner in my eyes!
To reward her for her hard work, pink-ivy has won a £100 Gift Voucher to spend on anything she likes at Lovehoney - congratulations!
Do you have a photo of you wearing a Lovehoney purchase? Fancy getting your hands on a hundred quid?
Read our photo guidelines and upload a photo and you could be picked as next month's winner!
It's not all about the winners though - we also choose our favourite runners up who win a whopping 2,000 Oh! Points to spend or save at Lovehoney.
This month we've received a deluge of amazing entries so had no choice but to select four (that's right - FOUR!) runners up!

Portia Da Costa is one of our favourite erotic novelists here at Lovehoney. As the author of classics such as The Accidental Call Girl, In Too Deep and The Gift, she clearly knows how to spin a tale full of love, lust and eroticism that never fails to create a powerful response in the reader.
That's why we're delighted to announce that Ms Da Costa's newest release, Entertaining Mr Stone, is our Book of the Month for May. Every copy of this seductive novel purchased during May receives a free Lovehoney Powerful Pocket Vibrator to enhance your reading experience.
In this newest book, Portia takes her saucy storytelling to a new setting: the workplace. Her heroine Maria Lewis is surprised to discover an attraction to her striking boss, Robert Stone. But what does Mr Stone have in mind for Maria?
We asked Portia what inspired this new novel, and the answer may surprise you! Read on below for the author's insight and a sneaky preview of the story...
We can't believe it: the last episode of Frisky Business has now aired! We hoped you've enjoyed the show as much as we've enjoyed starring in it. To celebrate what's been an amazing series, we're giving away a great prize bundle of toys and sex essentials to one lucky winner.
This week's episode saw plenty of action unfold, as ever, at the Lovehoney office and beyond. It was Christmas time, and our busiest time of year. With around 300 calls a day to Customer Care over the festive season, the staff were certainly kept on their toes.
Neal headed to Manchester to oversee the filming of Lovehoney TV adverts, and they went down a storm. The warehouse boomed with orders over the Christmas period - and everyone got stuck in to help!
Secret Santa was in full swing in Lovehoney HQ, and the staff received all sorts of great gifts from the man himself - from dog jackets to geeky T-shirts!
Read on to find out how to win this exciting bundle of sexy treats, featured in the final episode of Frisky Business...

Whatever your age, whatever your experience - maintaining a healthy, happy sex life takes a little work. With the correct information and a few cleverly chosen tools, you can make personal improvements that you and your partner can both enjoy.
Check out Tracey's EDGE collection to discover how her new range for men can boost pleasure and performance during solo and shared use.
We can hardly believe it, but tonight is the final episode of Frisky Business. Sob!
Six weeks ago, the Lovehoney gang gathered nervously at the pub, waiting to see the first episode of our very own TV series - and now we're wondering how the time has flown by so quickly!
Tonight's episode is dedicated to our Christmas escapades (I know, just as Spring arrives!). Rushed off our feet with special offers and hugely excitable due to Christmas jumpers and the promise of mince pies, we're all looking a little rosy-cheeked in this evening's show.
Both the Content and Customer Care teams are treated to a special visit as Father Christmas pops into the offices, bulging sacks a-plenty.
Plus, international sexpert Tracey Cox is back in town discussing her new range of male sex toys, EDGE, and an innovative mobile app to help build stamina.
It's on at 10pm over on Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242).
Whether you're buying for yourself or a lover, shopping for bras can definitely be confusing. Underwired, non-underwired, cupless, peek-a-boo... What does it all mean?
Figuring out the correct band size and cup is the first step to success, but choosing a style that suits you or your partner is also essential. Just like how not everyone would choose skinny jeans over bootcut, the coverage, cup style and cut make a huge difference to how you feel about your new bra.
It's also important to keep your bust size in mind while choosing lingerie. Some styles look wonderful on women with cup sizes of A - C, while other cuts are more flattering on a larger bust. Below, we explain the most popular bra styles, and explain what body shape they're best for.
