    I first found LH from a web search. I bought my wife a small / cheap / crap vibe from a sex shop shortly after we were married to try to spice things up a little and broaden her very vanilla horizons. Wanting something better, we ended-up at LH.

    Unfortunately though, it's not ultimately been good news...

    It simply reinforced her feelings that she could have fun on her own, without the fuss of having me / any man involved, so takes care of her own needs without me.

    Sorry to hear that it's been a negative for your sex life Ordinary Man. Is there any things that you would be interested in trying together like massage, bondage, roleplay etc that you could talk about so that you don't feel unwanted and left out?

    Unfortunately, I think it's just symptomatic of her general lack of libido. I think she literally just scratches the itch when it occurs with no 'sexual' thoughts involved.

    Whilst she likes the toys, I think I just gave her a free hand (no pun intended!) to go ahead without me (whether with toys or not), which wasn't really the idea.

    I've tried to help her improve her libido, but its like trying to get someone who is totally not hungry to try different flavours of chocolate cake.

    Although I've been thinking about buying a sex toy for quite some time now, I never really felt comfortable in sex shops with friends around to make a purchase, even though we are very open with one another. I also hadn't thought too much about it since I manage quite well with my own two hands, but today I spontaneously made my first purchase. I came straight to LH after seeing the adverts continuously, and I'm so pleased with the range and the affordability of them, including the fact that I am eligible for a student discount. I'm very pleased to say the least, and can't wait for the package to get here so I can explore my sexuality more. I'm hoping it will make me slightly more comfortable and confident too!

    Lilypaddle, I'm like that, too uncomfortable to go into a sex shop as my face literally goes beetroot red! I remember when we got our first sex toy from a high street store I waited outside whilst my husband had a look in the gave me a description of what they had! I just couldn't face going in!

    I only made my first purchase here a week ago and my confidence has soared! I'm looking into my next order already.

    I first found out about lovehoney at the end of December last year, my oh told me about it as I had been looking for either dilators or some kind of internal massage wand. For the past 10 years I haven't had sex very often, I suffer chronic pain conditions and sex was very painful (to the point I'd cry afterwards in secret) so we only done it every couple of months (although id do other things for my oh in between) in December I got my contraceptive implant removed after ten years of using them, I got a copper coil instead (which I've since had removed), as I had tried everything to stop the pain during sex, and getting uti's every time despite being scrupulously hygenic (ive since found out I have Instersticial Cystitis) nothing was improving and I'd actually began to think my oh would be better off leaving me and finding someone else who could make him happy as he has a very high sex drive and it was really unfair on him. So December third I had the implant removed to see if it would helo my sex drive improvd and, on new years eve last year, my sex drive returned with a vengeance and has gotten stronger every single day. I had been diagnosed with vaginismus so was looking for an internal wand of some sort to see if it would help with the pain during sex, the first vibrator I bought was the love honey basic G-spot one, since then we have now spent around £300 on toys, most of which have came from here and lingere, and I visit the website at least 4 times a week and order on a fortnightly basis.

    We now have sex at least ever second day, sometimes more than once a day, I cannot believe it. The combination of having the implant removed, and discovering all these sex toys I had no idea even existed has improved our life's beyond recognition. We started with the most basic vibrator and a tenga egg, now he has a fleshlight and I'm awaiting the lelo Soraya arriving this week. I am so grateful that lovehoney not only sells great items, but that they have videos of items and the forum, which has made me realise that it's OK to enjoy sex if you are female, id always had the mindset it was for men's enjoyment but the orgasm I had last night during penetrative sex definetly tells me otherwise :-)

    RosyCheek great to hear that your confidence has had a boost. I was exactly the same, I just couldn't have walked into a shop and looked at sex toys but from the comfort of home it's great what you can find out about and order online. A whole new world has opened up to me and I was like a kid in a sweet shop :)

    I'm new to LH but had seen the adverts on TV. Since coming off the pill my sex drive has rocketed so want to reintroduce anal sex and so I decided to checkout LH website. I have just purchased some lube and a vibrating butt plug plus some other stuff. Can't wait to try it out.

    Hopefully her libido will return soon. It is really hard when you don't want to have sex and you can start to feel pressured whenever the subject is approached. I know that I went through a period when I was really tired and sex was just another chore on the to do list but things thankfully are better than ever now that the tiredness has gone. I cut out a lot of stress causing things in my life and started taking a muti-vitamin and evening primrose capsules and feel much better. Good luck :)

    My hubby introduced me to LH after him buying me some sexy lingerie as a gift from here. I loved it so much and kept badgering him about where he bought it from. I decided to check it out for myself and here I am 😊 I love that I don't have to go into a store on the high street (so embarrassing). Although hubby still drags me into one every now and then as he knows it tests me but we never buy anything. LH has helped me overcome my worry about my love for kink as I thought I was the only one that likes pain and domination. It has given me the confidence to discuss sex with my hubby and try things I've never even dreamt of before. ❤️ love honey

    Now we can order toys etc from the number 1 retailer and know we are being totally looked after.

    My partner discovered LH one day after discussing buying cock sleeves. I'd never heard of LH before and was wary! We did one small order, and that was it for about a year and I forgot about it. I kind of rediscovered the site after talking to a friend about it, then I was like a kid in a sweet shop!
    It's improved my sex life massively, mainly because my partner is more open to trying new things now. I finally get to indulge in the things I want to do! And the confidence I get from the lingerie too is incredible 😍

    I first discovered LH via a sex toy review/sex advice and talk webcomic, then I found out some friends were also avid users. It's helped me explore things I'd been wanting to explore, allowed me to speak more openly about my sex life and bond a little more with some awesome friends.

    Apologies in advance for an epic thread, here goes and suggestions of the competition

    My Wife used to be a rep/agent/hostess for that other bunch so the catalogue was always around and easy to order from should we desire, however to me it looked like it was getting more expensive, was shopping for some nice underwear and, due to my locallity didn't fancy the high street, basically M&S or a local dept store where the clientel are shall we say more my elders and the staff a cross between similar and school leavers and, I wasn't really happy about getting lingerie advice from a: My auntie or b: someone who looked at me like I was there for a thrill.

    The internet becond and a quick search later I bought a set for her, we still have a long discontinued '50s inspired pink set. Then the emails started coming, I had had a brief browse before the gifts arrived and, once gifted we set about exploring the site together and, took many new sexual steps as a result of purchases made here, some big others less so, 1st experience of glass, jiggle balls (thanks to FSOG) male masturbators - and have I been making up for lost time since! Proper tailored restraits / kits rather than ties / dressing gown cords tied crudely around the headboard, anal beads, and wands.

    Having joined here we have met some of the nicest people I have never met, noone judges anyone regardless of what they do, don't do, want to do (as long as its legal) or what their preferences are. In all a really great bunch of what would seem in one part to be a fragile bunch of people to a certain extent who will happily tell you the last thing that they had placed in their butt!

    In the 18 years my wife and I have been together we have had our ups and downs, both in and out of the bedroom. The people here have helped, and they don't always know it. Sometines reading other people's advice to other strangers gives you the kick you need to change and sort out a few things. 2015 was a particularly bad year for us, deaths and a new job that didn't work out took its toll, a mini (epic) break down in early '16 kicked started a few things for us both and now - I feel we are closer than ever as a couple, a family and especially in the bedroom.

    The main reason? Monogamy, the game. we recieved it for our anniversary and play it fairly regularly because its so much fun and it helps remind us how much we love, care and trust each other. I would encourage all couples to play the game even if you are as happy as you ever feel you have been because it is - IMO such a good game.

    Lovehoney has a fantastic product selection, an awesome community, excellent customer care and fantastic testing opportunities but then we would say that...

    I feel we will be here as customers and members for a very long time.

    I first found lovehoney looking for a herbal viagra. Just wanted to see how effective the little blue tablets were. The lovehoney staff were so helpful though at the time I was a little unsure. I thought companies will tell you anything to sell how wrong I was. Staff recommended Golden Root to me ( a herbal viagra ) saying the product was really effective. Staff told me to only take one tablet as two would be risky

    well the tablets arrived I was eager to try them so took one tablet. I did not read the instructions first which I regretted later. After about one hour nothing seemed to happen my cock was not hard at all. So I took another tablet. Still nothing happened to my cock

    after about an hour and a half passed I began to get annoyed that I had waisted my money another company had conned me. How wrong was I. After about two hours my cock was so errect and hard I could not believe it. I had never experienced such a hard errection before. My cock did not feel real it was just like a piece of steel

    Nothing I did could get rid of the errection spent hours masturbating even when I ejaculated it remained errect. My wife had a go on it riding me for hours and still the errection would not go away

    I took Golden Root on a Sunday morning and could not go to work on Monday as my full errection would not go. It became painful and I began to panic. I could not sleep at night because of my errect cock. In the end I contacted my doctor. After 3 days my full errection began to go down. Still had a semi errection for a further 2 days

    What an introduction to lovehoney I should have listened more to the very helpful staff

    Golden Root was the best advise yet but be careful

    I'm very new to quite a lot of this stuff, I was never particularly sexually adventures until the past year really. I ordered a small bullet vibrator n a whim from a different company but found it didn't do a lot for me, so I put it in a drawer and stopped using it. But with the encouragement of a 'friend' I'm starting to get back in touch with my sexuality and wanted to try something different, I was attracted to LH because everything is so clearly explained if you're not sure about what you want!
