Launching in the UK in October last year, The Bettie Page Official Pleasure Products Collection made it's first appearance (and sale) at the London Tattoo Convention, sponsoring the national 'Miss Pin Up UK' competition.
Since then, sales have been consistently strong, with positive feedback from Bettie Page fans and seasoned bondage enthusiasts alike, which has got us grinning from ear to ear!
As an official piece of Bettie Page merchandise, it's very important to us that we please the 'original' Bettie fans, as well as those who have only just discovered her, and the rest who are just looking for a luxurious product to add to their kinky bedroom play.
Amazingly, it seems we've already built up a global fan-base on our Twitter and Facebook accounts (thank you!) and with our recent TV appearance in 'Frisky Business', Bettie is booming once again!
Read on to discover exactly what's in the range, as well as an overview of our television debut which aired last week.
Another month has passed and your product reviews have been pouring in left, right and centre - thank you!
We've hand-picked 3 of our favourite reviews from March to get prizes in this month's Review of the Month competition.
This month's overall winner is Ungifted's for his review of the Kinklab Hammerhead Male Stroker Magic Wand Attachment (£10.00). Congratulations - you've won yourself a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on whatever you like!
"...once you feel like you're about to reach your climax, kick the wand up to anywhere from 66-100% power and keep it there until you orgasm - this is even more difficult to describe, but it's the best, most unique, most amazing feeling you'll have.
"This is the toy I come back to time and time again - no matter your mood, it does does not disappoint... Ever. I cannot recommend this highly enough for you gentlemen!"

The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and there's the faint (if not slightly premature) scent of BBQs in the air. All this can only mean one thing:
Spring has finally sprung!
To celebrate the change of season, we've decided to throw a massive Spring Sale and give you one more reason to smile this month.
With huge reductions and offers on many of our best-selling toys, lingerie, bondage equipment and essentials (like lube and condoms!), expect to find yourself spoiled for choice.
If you're looking for a cheap beginner's vibrator, bargain sex toy kits or great value sexy gifts, we have plenty for you to choose from.
So, to help you choose the best products for you, your lover or the both of you, here are my top picks from our saucy Spring sale...
I think I made it very clear that we're fans of Valentine's Day, but understandably lots of single people have mixed feelings about the most romantic day of the year.
However, just because you're uncoupled doesn't mean you can't celebrate February 14th with some self-love.
In fact, is there any better time of year to treat yourself to a sexy indulgance, just for you? Forget flowers and chocolates - spend this Friday exploring your own pleasure points with some sexy lingerie or luxury sex toys!
With that in mind, I asked the wonderful Lovehoney Community for their top items for solo Valentine's fun, and boy did they deliver!
I've included some of their top ideas below (sorry PPD, no "endless supply of willy shaped pizza"), and you can check out their full list on the Lovehoney forum.
Behold the top three Valentine's treats for single folk:
It's always exciting when we get new products on our desks, but even more exciting when they're part of our own brand of Lovehoney sex toys.
We've been working hard to create even more high-quality, affordable sex toys to add to our Bionic Bullet range, and we're chuffed to be able to reveal five new products:
Made from high-quality silicone which is velvety-smooth to the touch and super-easy to clean, the Bionic Bullet range is already incredibly popular with beginners and experts alike, and these extra little treats we're adding to the collection are no exception.
We love them so much we've decided to give away one of each toy in celebration of their arrival. All you need to do is comment on this blog and we'll select five winners at random. Hurrah!
December saw an influx of reviews, and we've been inundated with tons of fantastic feedback over the festive period. Quite how you've found the time during the hectic build up to Christmas we'll never know, but we absolutely adore hearing what you think about our products, so keep 'em coming in!
Review of the Month
This month we chose Tectonic Tiger's review of the Lovehoney Magic Cock Rings (6 Pack) (£5.99) to win our grand prize. His review was informative and thorough, and we especially liked his use of the term "man-cannon".
"Not only will you and your 'other half' notice the immediate difference that these make to your size and firmness, you should also benefit from a greater intensity when ejaculating and you may well be shocked at just how far your man-cannon can fire its ammo. To say that I highly recommend these is an understatement."

Informative feedback which makes us giggle is a (ahem) "sure fire" way of getting your review spotted and in the runnings to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney.

Here's one trend that won't go away!
2013 was another huge year for bondage, with sales of blindfolds, spankers and handcuffs remaining strong.
Britney Spears even whipped out an item from our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection in her new music video, and Bettie Page fans have been treated to a luxury collection inspired by the lady herself.
In Autumn we introduced a dedicated bondage section to make shopping for whips, rope and restraints even easier.
Which leads us to...
2. Fifty Shades of Grey (Again!)
After much speculation and gossip throughout the year, the final cast members were finally announced for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption, with filming having already begun.
The Fifty Shades fever is still alive and kicking, with the Official Pleasure Collection designed by Lovehoney being expanded to include pharmacy products, in addition to sex toys and bondage gear.
New additions to the E L James approved collection, include items infused with Christian Grey's signature scent, like the Sensual Touch Massage Oil (left, £9.99).
Still haven't read the book? Pick it up (on sale!) here.

Reviewing products is a great way to say what's on your mind and tell us exactly what you think about your latest purchase. It also helps future shoppers know what to expect when shopping with us.
To say thank you for all your hard work every month we select our favourite user-uploaded review to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney - not bad eh?
This month's winner reviewed the Bedtime 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug (£18.99) and was particularly informative for those new to anal play, which we loved!
"I finally unboxed it and was immediately taken aback by its size. Although I'd seen the pictures and read the specifications, it seems a lot bigger and scarier when you're holding it in your hands wondering how on earth it'll fit. I'm happy to report, however, that with a little lube it slides right in, and sits fairly comfortably, even for a complete novice like myself."
