It's back to basics this week, with trusty lubes and bullet vibrators proving their worth and getting some great sex toy reviews. A chance this week to step back from all-singing, all-dancing contraptions and take stock of some bedroom staples.
This week's sex toy review round up
First up this week is LokiDay, who joined the ranks of "smug post-coital reviewer" of Maximus Anal Lubricant 250ml. The trusty lube had terrific staying power, outlasting the relationship and finding a place in LokiDay's heart. "When the friend-with-benefits turned out to be a friend-with-boundary-issues I ditched the bloke and kept the lube. Never had a regret." Read the review.
Another happy customer, Albeit needs look no further after having bought the Tracey Cox Supersex Love Lube 100ml. Educating us all, Albeit lets us know that there is a technical term for the sticky residue that lesser lubes leave: "glop". Read the review.
New uni student DeQuincey243 must have shocked the postman as she grabbed her package containing the Ammunition RO-80mm Bullet Vibrator out of his hands. Afterwards, we reckon she may have left her housemates wondering what the thumping was as, "it brought me to my knees - I fell off the bed!" Read the review.
AbsintheFaerieis a self-proclaimed sex toy expert, "chances are I'd been there and wet the sheets." But she found the Mini One-Touch Wireless Bullet Vibratora great toy for, "people who have drawers upon drawers of complicated devices and perhaps want to get back to basics."Read the review.
And now for something different with Mayme's review of the G World Gorgeous Criss Cross Ribbon Body Set. Prepare yourselves, this one is certainly pant-stirring, "He sucked, rubbed, licked and nibbled me into a frenzy through the fabric... In the end I was begging him to rip it off!" Read the review.
Whether you've been trying toys with bells and whistles or have gone back to basics, let everyone know about it and add a new review.
Cillit Bang, hippies and caravans have managed to make their way into your sex toy reviews this week - not forgetting, of course, the live-eel wannabe.
"This is insane, seriously." Says one reviewer, and we can only agree! Read on to find out what's been going on in bedrooms (and caravans) across the country.
Strike up the band, roll out the red carpet and raise a glass to a nation of sexpert reviewers! Real sex toy and lingerie reviews, written by you are so important to Lovehoney and we're excited to announce we've reached and breached the 20,000 mark!
Applause to Boobie, whose review of the Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit 2.0 Vibrator was our 20,000th sex toy review! And, phew, we're so pleased that they were a satisfied couple!
"We love having her in our lives... it has been great."
It's always great to hear about the fun you've had with your toys, but it's just as important to get feedback about what products aren't doing it for you.
Your reviews help everyone else decide whether to go for a toy or not, so your honest and detailed reviews are responsible for making sure everyone is having the best sex they can. No pressure there then!
Each month we give £100 of sex toys to the person who writes Lovehoney's Review of the Month. Check out the recent winners from August, July and June. Let everyone know what you think of your most recent playthings by submitting your own review.
It seems to have been a week of experimentation in your bedrooms with twirling, sex toy design improvements, a casualty and even someone's mum getting involved.
Really, it's been one of those weeks...
New recycling regulations mean that all electrical equipment - including sex toys! - must be disposed of at a designated electrical waste collection centre. This means that you shouldn't just chuck your dead vibrator in the kitchen bin!
We were wondering...
September has arrived and the long, somewhat sunny days of summer are nearly over. Evenings are drawing in, summer breaks are a faint memory and it feels like even more of our time is spent at work than usual. But all is not lost. One glass-half-full Lovehoney reviewer asks "What better way to unwind after a long day at work than with an intense, all-over massage and toe-curling orgasm?!" And we can't argue with that!
Read on for this week's sex toy reviews highlights, and don't forget to check out the class act that was August's Review of the Month.
Judging by the number of reviews this week, the recent un-summery weather has been keeping you all indoors. But it seems you inventive types have been having more fun in the bathroom than the bedroom, as the Sex in the Shower range got more than its fair share of sex toy reviews this week!
So what is this "sponge with a suspicious hole in"? Thankfully, not a scratchy and soggy stroker sleeve.
From slipping a nobbly silicone sleeve onto your favourite vibrator or adding extra bullets to your cock rings, you've been busy making your sex toys better for you for a long time.
But if you've got a bullet that just won't cut it, or a dildo without adornment you might need some specialist equipment.
A word of warning: customising your sex toys is addictive.
So when a recent thread in the Lovehoney Forum mentioned a brand new silicone modelling material that allows you to customise and 'hack things better', we simply couldn't resist getting some of our own and fiddling about for your delight and amazement.
The material is called sugru and this is what we did with it:
Another week, another set of exceptional sex toy reviews. Product-wise, there have been some flops but there have also been some toys that are proving to be firm favourites. So good, in fact, that one Lovehoney reviewer states, "I can honestly say I am entirely happy to die right now".
So what has been pleasuring, and paining, you this week?
