Last week we talked about what an exciting year 2014 was in the world of sex toys, but 2015 is set to be an even bigger year in terms of sex toy technology, with lots of brilliant new products due for release.
But that's not all. The much-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is being released in February, and we think the world of kink is set to be thrust into the mainstream spotlight like never before.
I've been chatting with our Online Trade Team to get the lowdown on what's set to be big in sex in 2015. With an industry insight from trade shows, suppliers and customer shopping habits, they were able to let me in on the sure-fire top trends of the next 12 months.
Check out our 15 sex predictions for 2015 below, and don't forget to have your say in the comments!
2014 has been a BIG year at Lovehoney and while we're already excited for everything 2015 has to hold, now is a good time to look back on an amazing year and, let's face it, get just a tad nostalgic!
Between landing our own reality TV series, debuting a whole load of exciting new products and launching our own lingerie brand, 2014 has been The Year of Lovehoney in many ways!
It's also been an exciting year for sex toys in general, with pleasure products getting more and more technologically advanced.
In what's fast becoming an annual tradition (see 2012 and 2013), here's our round up of the 14 most exciting sex trends of 2014.
Remember to leave a comment with your favourite bits of this past year!
With more than half of adults still getting a stocking filled with pressies every year at Christmas, it's important to pick up some small treats in advance of Christmas Eve for your loved ones. While family and friends might get the standard socks and chocolate again this year, it's fun to get a naughty stocking filler for your lover.
With this in mind, I asked some people around Lovehoney HQ to choose their favourite sexy stocking filler for this Christmas. Read on for Lovehoney staff picks!
We love strong vibrations here at Lovehoney. In fact, we even have a whole category called Extra Powerful Vibrators that's filled with our hand-picked, tried-and-tested vibrators that are guaranteed to give you the most bang for your buck. A recent addition to this prestigious group is the ROCKBOX Finger Thrusting Vibrator (£34.99), and it certainly lives up to its name!
With an incredibly strong motor, this thrusting sex toy provides powerful stimulation that is unbelievably intense - that's why we recommend it for advanced users!
If you've been watching the Lovehoney documentary Frisky Business on Lifetime or Netflix, you'll be familiar with the Rockbox Finger. There's a memorable scene where co-founder Neal shows the initial prototype to customer care advisor Chelsea, and her reaction says it all!
Below we have a chat with the inventor of the Rockbox Finger to find out where the inspiration comes from...
It's finally December and our excitement for Christmas is at an uncontrollable level!
In the spirit of giving, we have decided to launch a massive Advent Calendar Giveaway.
Our Advent Calendar is slightly different to the cardboard windows you once peeled back to reveal some very questionable milk chocolates.
This time around, we're giving you, our glorious customers, the chance to win 25 of our best selling products over the course of Christmas.
All you have to do is follow us on Twitter @Lovehoney and retweet our Advent Calendar tweets from each day.
We will be giving away a different prize every day to one lucky person*, so make sure you keep your eyes on our Twitter!
Good luck and Merry XXXmas!
Introducing the Happy Rabbit 2: Natural and G-Spot rabbit vibrators that are even better than the originals. We launched the original Happy Rabbit vibrators in 2012, and they quickly became your favourite Rabbit Vibrators. A welcome change from battery powered vibes, the Happy Rabbits were mains rechargeable and made of silky smooth silicone.
So how could the Happy Rabbit get even better? Well, we looked at your customer reviews and took on board your feedback to make an improved, happier rabbit.
The new Happy Rabbits are USB rechargeable, have 150% more power, and an improved shape for better clitoral stimulation. Available in Natural and G-Spot shapes, the Happy Rabbit vibes are now 100% waterpoof, and even have more vibrating settings. But one thing has stayed the same - the smooth silicone shaft and whisper-quiet motors you know and love.
Want to experience to incredible power of the Happy Rabbit 2? Read on below to find out how you can win one!
There are already as many types of vibrators as there are ways to use them, but we've found a new shape that's so obvious we can't believe it hasn't been done before.
The Bijoux Indiscrets 21 USB Rechargeable Vibrating Diamond (£25.00) is shaped, you guessed it, like a diamond. It also delivers really, really powerful vibrations.
Use the pointed tip to deliver precise clitoral stimulation, or let the flat top massage everything from your labia to your neck and shoulders. The possibilities are endless!
If your lover's been nagging you for some bling this Christmas, this could be the cheeky alternative. It even comes in a presentation box which is great for storage on the days you don't wish to be dazzled.

The second official trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been released ahead of the February 14th release date, and it's even sexier than we hoped!
From the look of things, it seems the movie is going to be every bit as provocative as the book - the tantalising trailer includes shots of floggers, blindfolds and restraints being used by Christian and Ana.
Fans of the book will also be delighted to get a closer look into the Red Room of Pain in the clip.
With the countdown to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie now on, it's the perfect time to take a look at The Official Pleasure Collection, approved by E L James herself.
Check out the new Fifty Shades of Grey trailer below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

Now, we all love a good giggle, but it seems Paris has ended up being the 'butt' of this joke with their somewhat artistic 2014 Christmas
butt plug... err, I mean tree!
Funnily enough though, France haven't suddenly decided to announce a love for all things anal, even though it really does looks like it.
They've collaborated with American contemporary artist Paul McCarthy (no... not the Beatle. Read it again) to reveal this year's rather eye-catching Christmas tree.
Featuring a tapered tip, elongated, bulbous body, and flat flared base... Hang on... Does this remind you of something? (Doc Johnson TitanMen Ass Servant)
We have a feeling that even the most advanced butt plug aficionados out there are clenching their butt cheeks at the sight of this enormous sculpture... We certainly are!

Allow the lovely Lisa to take you through the different features of G-spot vibes, USB rechargeables and more in the video below:
