    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.

    Read on for the best tips from across the web to guarantee the best Valentine's Day ever.

    Lovehoney Gift VoucherDrumroll, 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!

    Lovehoney Model of the Month January 2013

    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!

    Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator

    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!

    Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini VibratorThe 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!

    jimmyjane hello touch

    One of Lovehoney's 13 Sex Predictions for 2013 was that technology would give us new ways to stimulate - and only a month into the year, we're already seeing sex toys get more high tech.

    The Hello Touch by Jimmyjane debuted at the XBIZ Pleasure Products conference in Los Angeles (where Lovehoney won International Pleasure Products Company of the Year, by the way).

    This futuristic sex toy features two vibrating pads that slip over the wearer fingers to be used anywhere on the body.

    The novel sex toy has gone down a storm in the tech and sex world - it's been called "the best sex toy ever invented" by Gizmodo and "vibrator of the future" by Slate.

    Don't believe the hype? We're giving away one Hello Touch vibrator to a lucky reader. Just comment below before 8 February to be in with a chance to win.

    Approved by E L James, Lovehoney has worked closely with the author of the erotic trilogy to create the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection, a sophisticated collection of pleasure products that offer you the exciting and highly-desirable Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele experience.

    So, how well does the Tantus Juice Butt Plug work as a real juicer? Pretty darn well...

    Kink and Sex Fails to Excite Sundance Film FestivalBDSM and pornography failed to impress judges at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

    The annual festival, which took place in Utah this past week, featured a host of sex-related entries for the first time ever - but none managed to snap up an award.

    The 10-day Sundance festival is widely recognised for featuring the hottest indie talent, and if this year’s entries were anything to go by, we have an exciting year of sexually themed new releases ahead of us. Between documentaries, shorts and full-length movies, the recent festival saw over a dozen sex-themed entries.

    2012 saw an increasing number of people talking about sex and sex toys in the media - from the phenomenon of Fifty Shades of Grey and the UK release of “Hysteria” - and this trend is set to continue in the coming year with the premieres of BDSM documentary “Kink” and porn actress biopic "Lovelace" to look forward to.
