    I've cracked my whip! We've always had lots of lovely Buyer's Guides, but they've been in a bit of a jumble and tricky to find. Not any more...

    If you hover over the main menu, under the 'Buying Help' header of each section is now a link to each set of buyer's guides. They are:

    Sex Toys Buyer's Guides

    Lingerie & Clothing Buyer's Guides

    The Essentials Buyer's Guides

    Gifts & Games Buyer's Guides

    The index pages themselves will be prettied up, but at least we have a full list now! Hopefully this will make it easier to find Buyer's Guides to link to member asking "what lube should I choose?" (Guide to lube!), or "I want to try anal sex, what do I do?" (Guide to first time anal sex!)

    A lot of the guides haven't been edited for a few years - we'll be gradually updating them. We can also spot all the gaps now...

    I want to know - are there any Buyer's Guides you think would be particularly helpful?

    Brilliant Alice! I've always gotten a bit puzzled when trying to find my way around the 'guides'. I shall find it very much more helpful now. Thank you.

    Looking good Alice...will a sticky be going up on the forums with links to the guides?

    And whatever happened to the idea of a section linking to all the older but really useful threads?

    Nope, no sticky for guides. They're all accessible from the main menus (if you hover over the main menu, under the 'Buying Help' header of each section is now a link to each set of buyer's guides) and we're working on a central Buyer's Guide area which will make them all much easier to find.

    This thread is overdue an upgrade and seems the right candidate for 'Classic Threads'. I'll add it to my list for next week.

    Ah ok, yes I thought about being able to get it there but if you don't know they exist you might not think to look for them - but a central buyers area would be useful!

    And good news on the classic threads place - we're getting so many repeated threads at the minute and I think users with valid questions aren't getting their answers because people have answered the same question in another thread so recently!

    Great idea! Makes them so much easier to read.

    Can I suggest one thing? I was looking through the guides about cock rings but I couldn't find a guide about metal or rigid ones. Like what size, how long can you wear them for etc. This could be really helpful.

    I know a lot of brands often have there own set sizes, like some will be a different size in inches for a size 12 to another brand. I was wondering if there would be a link/ guide with were size charts are all together for the main brands? I know there is already a onesize guide but this too doesn't have inches involved. Also maybe a image of a person with lines indicating where to measure? I'm not sure if this is already on the site though.

    Hello again all, I have been diddling. If you check out the navigation bar now, the guides should be much clearer in the right hand column, and the bottom link is a link to all the guides.

    I think we definitely have all the information, but it is scattered to the winds and incredibly difficult to find! Have made a note of how to measure for a cock ring/how to choose a cock ring.

    Nymphomaniac - my, that sounds like a HUGE project but I've made a note.

    Another update, we now have a landing page for all the guides:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/buyers-guide/

    This is the link you will find under the Community & Advice tab in the navigation bar.

    Hope this makes life easier for you if you're looking for a Lovehoney guide.

    Thanks Alice, one point: Make sure you use a fabric tape, a steel one can cause injuries ;)

    Newly updated guide - Which is the Best Bullet Vibrator?

    Should help guide new users through the different aspects of bullet vibes (including battery types, special coatings etc) if they're looking for something other than the bestseller or trying to understand why some bullets feel different and perform differently from each other.
