    A Customer Sent Us A Love Poem - And We Wrote Back! (AKA: Lovehoney Rap Battle)It's a well known fact that Lovehoney customers are the best around, and I love sharing with you the nice comments our team receive daily, as well as the occasional hilarious drawings we get in the post.

    Just last week, Customer Care advisor Chelsea (left) was manning the Live Chat function when she received a veritable Lovehoney love poem from a kind customer:

    Lovehoney.com is THE one
    Clothes to please and some to tease
    Silks and satins I don't look fat in
    Frills and bows, for anything goes
    Men and women both enjoy a 
    sexy Lovehoney toy
    Thank you Lovehoney
    You can have my money
    You give me pleasure
    For my leisure
    You help me feel in the mood
    All is fun and never crude.

    Of course, Chelsea couldn't not return the favour... Read on below for her hilarious response!

    Sex Position Extended Pleasure

    Looking for something to bring a bit more fun into the bedroom? Missionary position isn't quite cutting it anymore? We have the answer!

    Today marks the start of the 'Lovehoney Sex Position of the Month' series.

    This month's position will test both your balance and flexibility (so remember to do your stretches first)... say hello to Extended Pleasure.

    How to achieve Extended Pleasure:

    The man and woman stand facing each other whilst the woman raises one leg over her partner's shoulder.

    The woman leans back slightly and holds on to her partner's arms or waist for support. He holds her leg and waist in position.

    Let us know how you get on with this month's position in the comments section below.

    We Can't Believe What This Customer Sent In With Their Returned Order!As you probably know, the Lovehoney Returns Policy is pretty legendary. We're happy to go the extra inch by offering you a replacement or refund for 365 days after your purchase, for any reason.

    That's right! We're happy to accept your returned items even if they've been opened, worn or used, because if you're not happy, we're not happy.

    Customers often send in a note or letter with their returned orders explaining exactly why they want a refund or replacement, which can be hilarious, sad or (if we're honest) border on TMI.

    Our returns department recently received a pair of nipple clamps in the post with an enclosed note that may be the best we've ever seen!

    See why we were blown away below, and find out more about our award-winning returns policy here.

    BuzzFeed Try Guys Try Fifty Shades BDSM

    The gang at our favourite viral content site are at it again. BuzzFeed have always provided us with hours upon hours of diversionary delights, and this time is no different.

    In the past, they have been known to put a group of their finest employees, The Try Guys, through a number of weird and wonderful tasks for our viewing pleasure. This time around the Try Guys are inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey to try out bondage.

    Naturally, when we heard what they were planning we thought it would be a great idea to send them a box of Fifty Shades of Grey sex toys and the results are really rather special.

    Watch the video below to find out what happens when a group of BDSM virgins try out bondage for the first time... on camera.

    Spank you very much BuzzFeed!


    A full list of the toys used in this video can be found below.


    We have. That's why we got a box of sex toys and a fancy slow-motion camera to find out.

    The result is quite majestic:

    Lisa Ann is still the most popular porn starAdult actress Lisa Ann (left) has proven the UK's most popular porn star, according to the 2014 report by video website Pornhub.

    The survey analysed the viewing habits of Pornhub users, and gives quite an insight into the sexual preferences of Brits. More British people watch Lisa Ann's videos than any other adult actress, and "MILF", "British" and "Lesbian" were our most searched terms.

    The findings also reveal Lisa Ann's universal appeal - she topped the polls in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Argentina, Egypt and Romania. However, Sasha Grey is still the most popular pornstar in Russia.

    If you're a Lisa Ann fan, make sure to check out her Fleshlights in Lotus (vagina) and Forbidden (butt) styles. Both are currently in our 2 for £100 offer, so shop now to grab a bargain!

    1. Flirty Shades of Grey

    2. Fifty Shades of Grey film fever has certainly hit Britain, and it's coming to a supermarket near you.

      Surf have released "Flirty Shades of Surf", a scented laundry detergent they describe as their "naughtiest fragrance yet".

      Washing your sheets in this special detergent is said to make you (and your lover) more frisky in the sack.

      Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sensation Sensual Bath Oil 100mlWe can see where they're coming from - it's a well known fact that arousal can be kickstarted by a sensual aroma, particularly floral and musky scents.

      It's no surprise the new product has been launched just weeks before the Fifty Shades of Grey movie premiere.

      If you really want to smell like Mr. Grey himself, try enjoying a bath with a splash of Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sensation Sensual Bath Oil, or indulge in a sensual back rub with the Fifty Shades of Grey Sensual Touch Massage Oil.

      Fifty Shades of Grey Sensual Touch Massage Oil 100mlThey've both been infused with Christian Grey's signature scent with hints of bergamot, sandalwood and musk. And it's even E L James approved!

      Do you think a laundry detergent can really change your sex life?
