• Our friends at Cosmopolitan are running their annual Ultimate Women of the Year Award and are calling on all Lovehoney customers to nominate their Ultimate Women.

    Do you have a friend or family member who you think deserves recognition for what they've achieved over the last year?

    Maybe you have an amazing friend who's helped you through a tough time, a relative who's done fantastic things for charity, or a colleague who's climbed Everest single-handedly?

    Or maybe you've just read about someone in the newspapers who you thought was truly incredible? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

    Email your nominee, along with why they should win, to ultimatewomen@natmags.co.uk.

    Summer Of Lovehoney - First Winners Announced!

    Big congratulations to the winners of our first Summer Of Lovehoney festival competition. Ellen Sanders and Karen Hankinson will be living it up at Download, experiencing the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Aerosmith, Motorhead, Billy idol, AC/DC and others. Lucky things!

    The good news is that if you entered to win tickets for Download and you didn't win, you can retain your points and enter to win tickets for an alternative festival! Simply log in to your Summer Of Lovehoney account and change the festival you would like to win tickets for. Any entries you have earned will then be placed toward your new choice of festival.

    Winners not only win two weekend tickets to their chosen festival, they also receive a champagne limo ride to a luxury hotel where they'll receive a £100 gift bundle of Lovehoney toys and spend Saturday night sleeping in comfort before the limo driver takes them back to the festival the following morning in time for the first bands.

    The England flags are flying from cars, the over-blown adverts are on TV and Gary Lineker is dusting off his best suit ready to meet Nelson Mandela (probably). The countdown to South Africa has begun!

    Celebrate the impending football nuptials by taking our Come on England Sexy World Cup Survey - you could win a £100 shopping spree at Lovehoney.

    All you have to do is tell us which of the England squad players you'd like to snog, marry or avoid. 

    Come on England!

    It's a busy week for sexy news, so here's my round up of the stories that had us umming, arring and oohing in the office this week:

    Pill to Prevent Premature Ejaculation.
    Footballer to Prevent Premature Ejaculation.
    Liberal Democrat MP Accused of Being Too Liberal.
    Brazilian Health Minister Recommends Sex To Improve Health.
    Craiglist in Hot Water Over Sex Ads.

    Love Thursdays!

    If you love Fridays, then be prepared to 'Love Thursdays' even more. Durex have launched a new campaign which hit the British airwaves on Thursday the 22nd of April 2010. The first condom advert to air in six years, Durex's feel good campaign celebrates all relationships and aims to boost our sexual activity this spring.

    Resourceful Roleplaying - A Beginner's Guide

    In the past month Lovehoney has gone costume crazy with a plethora of sexy and stylish ensembles turning us onto the idea of playing dress up. Roleplay is still a relatively new concept in most relationships and I want to lift the veil and get intimate with the idea of dressing up for sex.

    Roleplay is an exciting and easy way to inject some new passion into your sex life. I'm not talking about a quick fumble behind a Jack-O-Lantern at the annual Halloween bash, but planned scenarios involving dialogue, plot, characters, props and costumes.

    The start of April closes the first quarter of this year and it's time to look at our UK Sex Map to find out how the forecast is looking with summer just around the corner.

    Upminster have been at the top of our Sexiest Towns List since our UK Sex Map went live, but at the close of March 2010 we have a new Sexiest Town spending a cumulative 6.6 times the national average overall on their sex lives!

    Poll Results - Sexless Love vs Loveless Sex

    We recently ran a poll asking you if you would prefer to have sex without love, love without sex or if it just won't do without both.

    We've reviewed your votes and can reveal that when it comes to matters of the body and heart, Lovehoney's customers are equally divided.

    If you thought Easter was all about religion, bunnies and chocolate eggs you couldn't have been more wrong. This Easter The Resistance Gallery in Bethnal Green is hosting The London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage.

    The four day event boasts an impressive range of contributors and performers including Esinem, Mistress Amrita and the amazing Kinoko Hajime who will be running classes and demos throughout.

    A few weeks ago we ran a survey to find out whether the following statement was true or false:

    "The left testicle usually hangs lower than the right on right handed men – and vice versa."

    Of course, these statements originally arise from scientific study but who really wants to revisit the topic of testicles every couple of years to make sure that the statement still rings true?

    Well, we do!

    That’s why we ran the ‘Let’s Talk Balls!’ survey and gave away three fantastic Lovehoney VibraExciter Mobile Phone Vibrators for Men to thank everyone for their ahem hard work.

    The results were fascinating and somewhat verified the statement, but not entirely...

    testicle survey results

    The left testicle hangs lower than the right on the majority of right handed men but it is also the left testicle that hangs lower than the right on the majority of left handed men as well.

    You can also see that the second highest result was right handed men with their right testicle hanging lower than the left.

    Now, we would expect to see this as there are more right handed people in the demographic that we surveyed than left but, and let me put the lab coat on for this, this still means that the original statement cannot be conclusively proven entirely true or entirely false.

    Taking the lab coat off again, what this means is that each set of testicles is entirely unique, like a beautiful snowflake or a fleshy lumpy butterfly. Or something like that...


    Thank you to everyone for your entries and congratulations to our winners Siandlinda, SH.1988 and peggedman.
