Christmas is synonymous with pleasure. It could be the crisp smell of snow in the air, the snuggly nights in front of roaring fires or a general excess of eggnog and mistletoe at the office party; but whatever does it for you, Christmas is certainly the season to be sexy.
Not only is Christmas full of endless glitter, flashing lights and too much mulled wine, research shows that all this excitement has some notable side effects for horny couples! The most common birthday is the 16th of September, prompting the 11th of December to be named the world’s most common date of conception.
Do the long, cold winter nights give your libido a boost? Or does the idea of getting it on when the world outside is miserable turn you off? With the price of heating our homes on the increase, we’re not surprised December is our favourite month to be huddling together and making babies, whether we’re trying it for real or just practicing!
Let us know how hot your festive period is and you could with a sexy gift set full of goodies worth £64.99 to keep her smiling all season long.
We've always thought there are more fun ways you can use sex dice, and we hope to give you some inspiration this Toy with me Tuesday. Why not add a pair of sex dice or foreplay dice to a boring board game and hot things up?

Review of the Month
This month's review comes from across the channel, with a French customer who found the toy (and Lovehoney's service) second to none.
"To continue to explain would become pornographic but I do want to tell you that I had so many orgasms that just merged into an uncontrolled tsunami of the greatest calibre that I have ever experienced (and I have had a few!).
It gave me a truly mind-shattering, uncontrolled, life changing experience. "

The original Lovehoney Pocket Vibrator was a firm customer favourite, with over 400 reviews, a 5 star rating and hordes of satisfied customers. Appearing in the Top Ten Toys for Clitoral Stimulation, Top Ten Toys for Beginners and Top Ten Most Powerful Vibrators, it was ranked as one of our most popular creations.
We got many dismayed calls and queries when it was discontinued, but while Lovehoney customers were busy mourning the loss of one of our most popular vibrators, we were trying to improve an already top-rated toy.
After much anticipation, we are pleased to announce the improved version of the Lovehoney Pocket Vibrator.
With the addition of 4 stimulating heads and costing only £5.99, this vibe gives plenty of bang for your buck!
To celebrate the re-release of this classic vibrator, we're giving one away!

The Dark Garden was originally published in 2007. As someone who has been involved in BDSM practice most of my adult life, this was a true book of my heart. I wanted to present my perception of BDSM - my truth about what it is to me, the psychology of it, the intensity of kink relationships - in a way readers might find approachable. I wanted to show the sensual side of kink, because it’s not all about whips and chains (although I do have a particular love for chains!). But back to the present…
The Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon has given us, the kink authors who are actually kinky, the freedom to write more of these stories fueled by our own experiences, as well as our lovely, dark, as-yet-to-be-met fantasies, and to share that delicious dark side of sensuality with you. The Dark Garden is a fairly even mix of those elements.
As a real life switch, it’s always been a challenge for me to submit. This scene-and in fact, this entire book-is about that struggle to get what we want, but feel we can’t have, for whatever reasons -the fear of losing control no matter how badly we need to. And what can happen when the right man comes along to help us find that freedom.
