    Hey all

    So some of you may have seen my tweet about putting ideas to paper last night. Well part of that process involved this community , ideas for some competitions and fun .

    As much as I moderate this is ultimately a community that you have all built together so I think your ideas and input are vital.

    So I ask you all ……..

    Are there any competitions that have grabbed your attention more than others ?  

    Are there things you want to see from the forum , I don’t mean adjustments & changes . I mean like do you want to see more competitions, regular postings , or less competitions etc…..

    Are there past post that you would like to see come back ? ( within the rules cheeky)

    I have some ideas and would like to hear what you think before I think about putting them forward

    Remember I am still kind of new so be gentle haha . devil

    And for those of you that do not have twitter & missing out on my riveting posts and cat pics  I may do a meet the moderator post ………

    Anyways let me know your thoughts if you like

    I have been on the forum a while and although I don't always post, I pop on at least once a week. I've not ever noticed any competitions except for following lovehoney on twitter and I don't always see those either. So I think the main change I'd like to see is them being more noticeable on the forum please :-)

    It might be too much for the tech side, but could you lay a treasure hunt down, start on the forum with a clue to a product when you figure out that product there's a clue on the product page, and so on. Until you get to the "prize " which could be entry into a draw for a toy or oh points or kudos. Again with easter coming you could call it an easter Egg hunt but the premise is much the same.

    I like competitions or challenges. If we can exercise our brains and be on Lovehoney that is perfect!

    I like that idea sub. I made a treasure hunt for my children last year which took three days to solve. All of the clues were in codes and encrypted!

    Great idea sum sub! I do like competitions like the recent one you did leanne about thinking of a name for the sex toy testers. I really enjoyed reading people's ideas and had a good giggle :) captions would be brilliant!

    How about guess the sex toy competition from a photo of part of it?
    It would have the benefit for Lovehoney that people would go to bits of the site previously unknown to them in search of the prize.

    Yes! I really enjoyed the blurred photo thread recently with matt. I realise I am being totally unhelpful lol but I'm rubbish at coming up with ideas x

    I also enjoyed the caption competition that was around a while back, the one where staff would upload a photo and the idea was to write something funny.

    I'd love more visually creative competitions, like draw something or photograph something (with themes that could not be interpreted as 'oh a shot of my penis will do' preferably), but obviously on a forum where you can't place photos in posts this would be hard to execute. Could run one from the Lovehoney blog via twitter/instagram pages though?

    I don't know beyond that. I haven't seen many competitions on the forum, only ones I remember are the caption one and the one where there was a pixelated photo (which wasn't technically a competition but was fun). More guess the item photos would be fun :)

    I love this idea Sub, would maybe simplify it down to a question and a clue on here, that leads to a product page with the answer on it, email the answer when it's found. Could even do this with discounts - find X product, on the product page find a 20% discount code for that item for the first X amount of customers etc.

    The only competition I've seen so far was the renaming of the Squirrels, so I would definitely like to see more! It just creates a whole lot of buzz within the forums and I like that.

    Some fantastic ideas on here guys. Love all the easter tie in stuff with the easter hunt and all the suggestions with rabbits, eggs and chocolate body paint etc.


    The caption competition and guess the sex toy game sound fun.


    Meet the moderator would be a great or meet the staff they all seem a super bunch and on telly Paul in tech and Andrea in returns seemed lovely or it could even be meet the bosses.


    I don't always notice the competitions and surveys as I forget to check out the blog. Maybe a discussion or link on the forum to remind us what's going on would give the blog more traffic.


    I enjoyed the 12 days of Christmas giveaway and there was a sex positions challenge that was fun too.


    As previous posters have said puzzles and problem solving are all great fun to join in.


    I would interested to see more things like best sex tip posts, how to guides for different topics, get the look which could show photos of some of the lingerie available and advice on hairstyling, make -up, accessories, props etc maybe with a theme like romantic, sexy, blushing bride, dominatrix etc. This could be an Easter thing with the playboy style bunny outfit and there could be valentines, Christmas and so on.


    I know the erotic writers thread was stopped but could there be a short story competition and entries sent direct to the moderators and only the winning entry released which would let you control what was said. If it was too explicit you could adapt it with the writer till it was suitable.


    Design a sex toy is a great competition. Could there also be design some lingerie?


    Also we could maybe do a best roleplay competition.


    Beat date night ideas.


    How to set the scene for romance, seduction or bondage play.


    Love song of the week or top 10. I know the songs to strip to thread was popular. So on that note lapdancing and striptease/ burlesque routines and tips would be fab.


    Romantic menu ideas for all the foodies on here.


    Massage and relaxation how to guide. I know there is a short massage video but maybe something a bit more detailed showing a full back and shoulders or full body massage would be great.


    I'll come back to this if I think of anything else x

    I love the design your own lingerie idea

    The caption comp was fun

    Treasure hunt also seems fun

    As does the short erotic story competition. I have lots of indie authors that I could get on board with entering that. (I'm a book blogger, reader, reviewer for mostly indie authors).
