Lovehoney has over 153,000 sex toy reviews – making it the biggest resource of sex toy reviews in the world.
By reviewing sex toys on Lovehoney, you automatically enter our monthly competition to win £100 to spend on Lovehoney, and can also register to become a Sex Toy Tester. Only the best reviews will win competitions and earn tester products, so this guide will help you write a great review.
When you review your purchases on Lovehoney, your aim is to give other people the information that they can’t find on the product page: an opinion on how it performs and whether you think it’s worth spending the money on.
The best reviews are those that help someone else make an informed decision about the right toy for them. It doesn't matter whether you loved a toy or thought it was awful, the most important thing is to describe how it made you feel and what someone else would find if they bought the same item.
Remember to use your item a couple of times before you pass judgement on it. First impressions do count, but you might find your opinion changes (for better or worse) after a couple of sessions.
When writing a sex toy review for a Lovehoney, think about the following things:
This week's awesome sex toy is the Pipedream Extreme Realistic Male Sex Doll (£429.99), as seen being measured by me with the Official Lovehoney Depth Probe in Channel 4’s “More Sex Please, We’re British”.
This buff bod is one of the finest examples of male sex dolls I’ve ever had the privilege to fondle. Perfectly formed with spectacular musculature and a lob-on so fierce that you can practically see it throbbing, this stud of a doll definitely has the right visuals.
Of course, he has no head, arms or legs, but these are minor details when you’re faced with such a randy Adonis (and this also makes the doll less expensive, which is good for the pocket).
Did you catch the Lovehoney Documentary ‘More Sex Please, We’re British’ on Channel 4? How closely were you watching...? Take our quiz to find out and let us know in the comments below what your score was!
It’s currently the second most popular show on Channel 4’s 4OD service, so if you have missed the initial airing (or need to revise before taking the quiz) on May 8th 2012, you can still catch it.
Watch More Sex Please, We're British on 4OD.
Recently I looked at some of the pros and cons of Viagra. This has now given rise, so to speak, to more questions - one of which concerns possible side effects...
In the days of yore, when I first joined Lovehoney, there were a few creases to iron out in the content department. For a start, I was the entire content department. As the only writer I had to churn out as many words as possible, most of which revolved around new product descriptions.
Once Alice, Lucy and Gemma joined the ranks, time was freed up and we were all able to turn our attentions to new exploits. My pet project became sex dolls. I desperately wanted to revamp our dolls and I set to work getting every single one out of the warehouse to size up and re-explain.
During my rewrites I found plenty of problems, but none were as persistently infuriating as trying to take the internal dimensions with a floppy tape measure. After what must have been several irritating complaints, I came in one morning to find a special present on my desk. That present was The Official Lovehoney Depth Probe, a new take on the Singapore Stinger (£14.99) crafted by Alice’s very own Kirstie-Allsop-esque hands.

Review of the Month
It's always lovely to read a gushing review (especially about a G-spot toy) and this one celebrated the "fall-on-your-knees, hallelujah-chorus inducing" Uma by Je Joue.
We felt this review by, with pared back information and an easy sense of humour, would be an ideal read for sex toy newbies...
Spring has officially sprung and as the temperatures heat up outside, they’re reaching scorching new heights in the bedroom.

It's the secret we've been sitting (uncomfortably) on for 6 months now: Lovehoney is going to be the subject of a documentary on Channel 4.
After hours (and hours and hours) of being trailed by cameras, we're finally ready to take you behind the scenes here at Lovehoney.
More Sex Please, We're British is on at 10pm, Tuesday 8th May on Channel 4.
This scene from my story Off the Shelf, from new Xcite Books erotic romance anthology, Silk Stockings is the hottest, in my opinion. Why? I don't want to give too much away (you'll have to buy the book to read the whole story!), but throughout the novella, there's been lots of tension and will-they-won't-they action between the characters Annalise and Damien, and this is where things finally come to a head.
They've just been out for a lovely meal together, and have finally bitten the bullet and decided to do what they've wanted to do for a while - stop messing around and take their relationship to the next level.
I love this sex scene for several reasons: one, because the poor souls have waited so long for it; two, because it was so much fun to write; three, because I knew the pair of them were gagging for one another and four, because I finally got to see what Damien looked like naked - I have the biggest crush on him! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this taster of what's to come (pun fully intended) and consider checking out Silk Stockings which contains three seriously hot erotic romance novellas, Off the Shelf.

Sometimes all a sex toy has to do is defy convention to be truly awesome and that’s why this week's Awesome Sex Toy is the RodeoH Strap-on Harness Underwear.
I don’t know who first thought “I know, I’ll create a strap-on that looks like something straight out of a pony play scene”, but I would be willing to bet that they had at least one or two horse-hair-embellished butt plugs knocking about in their bedside drawer.
The RodeoH strap on is different. Part underpants, part strap-on, this alternative harness redefines what it means to partake in strap-on sex.
Made from comfortable stretchy cotton, this harness fits exactly like a regular pair of pants but has the functionality of a traditional leather and metal strap-on harness... just without the bulky chastity belt aesthetic.
