We all start off the year with the best of intentions, but by the time February comes to a close we’ve often abandoned our exercise routines and weight loss goals and reverted to bad habits.
If you need an incentive to keep up your healthy eating plan, just think about your sex life. Eating well not only makes you look and feel better, there’s also evidence that a balanced diet could boost your libido.
While the aphrodisiac properties of oysters may be exaggerated, eating a balanced, nutrient-rich diet ensures you have plenty of energy to burn in the bedroom, leaving both you and your partner satisfied.
Not only do the right foods improve your sex life from the inside, it can be fun to stimulate your taste buds during sex with some delicious low calorie flavoured lube to lick off your partner.
We’re giving away FIVE bumper Sliquid Swirl flavoured lube bundles! Simply comment below before March 1st for your chance to win.

If you write a sex toy review for Lovehoney, you could be in with a chance to win a rather splendid £100 to spend on whatever you like!
Review of the Month
Having racked up 99 customer reviews, we felt this review by laceandglitter summed up precisely why the Lovehoney Magic Wand Deluxe Massager has proved to be such a phenomenally popular toy.
"I received this as a gift from my boyfriend a couple of months ago. I intended to review it earlier, but I just haven't been able to leave the bedroom since then! Seriously, though, this is the best vibrator I own. I sometimes think it's the best one I'll ever own."

Each month we also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with a whopping 2,000 Lovehoney Oh! Points to spend as they wish, or perhaps save up to spend on a luxury sex toy. Read on to find out who the runners up were...

There's a reason why Valentine's Day is the second most widely celebrated holiday in the world - every once and awhile, it's nice to indulge our romantic side with flowers, chocolate...and sex!
February 14th is the perfect day to show your partner how much you love them. Whether it's a nice meal, seductive lingerie, a dozen roses or a couples sex toy, there's just something about treating your lover that inspires passion.
Being single on St. Valentine's Day doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun, either - there are plenty of sex toys designed for solo pleasure.
To celebrate this romantic time of year, we're giving away a bumper Valentine's bundle to one lucky winner.
Prize includes a TENGA Flip Hole (£63.99), a Lelo Mia 2 (£69.99) and a pair of Luxury Sex Dice. Comment below before Tuesday, Februray 12th for a chance to win.

Drumroll, please... after years of being asked for them, we can finally offer you Lovehoney.co.uk Gift Vouchers to send to a loved one.
You can purchase a voucher worth anything from £10 to £500, and have it delivered instantly by email to the lucky recipient.
Everything is previewable, so you can fiddle with how the gift voucher would look without even having to enter the checkout.
Go on, have a play!
Lovehoney.co.uk gift vouchers can be spent on anything available on Lovehoney.co.uk (but not on more gift vouchers, because that would just be madness.
And might break the internet.)
They're as flexible as using cash: you can spend all your voucher, more than your voucher (and make up the difference), less than your voucher (without losing the difference), or even more than one voucher at once. Oh, and they don't have an expiry date either.
Got a question? Check out our Lovehoney Gift Vouchers Help page, or add your question in a comment and we'll do our best to answer them!
January is officially the stay-at-home month of empty pockets and cold weather, so we’re truly glad to welcome February, the month of love, into our lives.
The Lovehoney Community made good use of the quietest social month of the year by filling our Photo Gallery to the brim with an array of saucy, sexy photos showing off some of our finest wares.
Competition for first prize was fierce as so many members uploaded incredible photos, but in the end we chose LooneyTunes as our overall winner for this stunning shot of her showing off a full outfit bought at Lovehoney (minus the top hat).
Dressed in the Music Legs Satin and Lace Corset with Matching G-String, a pair of Seven Til Midnight Lace Elbow Length Gloves and a fluffy Feather Boa, she’s created a classy shot that shows off both the front and back of her outfit while keeping her anonymity stylishly intact. Brava!
Read on to see our four runners-up who each win 2,000 Oh! Points...
OK, OK, if you're a regular reader of the Lovehoney blog the above shot might seem like a 'cheat', but we're so excited about the new Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator (which launched only yesterday) that we just had to feature it as our Toy with me Tuesday this week!
The future of sex toys is here, and it's charging in a Starbucks near you!
Introducing the brand new Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator £29.99. Sleek, petite and discreet, this powerful mini vibrator is whisper-quiet and looks uncannily like a memory stick, making it arguably the most discreet pleasure product on the market.
Unlike many other USB chargeable vibrators, the intimate stimulating tip of the Flash is removed during charging and can be kept somewhere clean and safe whilst the motor is charged via a computer or USB mains charger in a much less 'obvious' charging method.
Take a look at a Flash we plugged into a Lovehoney Mac earlier today (pictured, left). Now imagine it's plugged into a commuter's laptop as they take the crowded morning train to work, or as they complete a report in a busy cafe. Would you have any idea that this tiny black rectangle holds within its powerful motor three hours' worth of intense orgasm potential?
Neither would we!
