    Is it just me or has Love Honey made a conscious decision recently to display the packaging of its products as well? I just wanted to say that I think this is really great and helpful. It's almost like being in a shop and seeing it, and hopefully will encourage manufacturers to make nicer packaging- cringeworthy 'hunky' men can be a real turn off suprisingly!

    I think it's much better when you can see the packaging of an item aswell. Makes it easier to tell what size it is/quality etc. Also you can get some more little snippets of info about the product from the box sometimes.

    Gawd, some of the packaging for some items is awful! Some of the people on them scare me! They make the toys seem a bit...rubbish as it were, just because the piccys don't seem high quality and look fake. (Eg women trying to look sexy and just not succeeding!)

    I hope manufacturers do try to improve their packaging to make items more appealing at first sight!! Because they all turn out to be better than the way the packaging advertises them!

    Yeah, I have a great dildo, but the 'stallion' on the packet made me CRINGE! Like in a shop I wouldn't have bought it because of that, so I suppose Love Honey need to choose carefully what packaging they want to display lol. But it really is helpful isn't it?

    I love seeing the packaging, as Night_KD said it helps give an idea of the quality.
    My favourite ever packaging still has to be the stuff my Berman Centre Venus came in. So pretty and well-designed. Thing is, though, I think I prefer the packaging to the actual toy!

    I think the product is more important that packaging BUT the packaging is your first impression and also if you want the thing as a gift you don't want it in something skanky looking.

    I really don't know why they put naked cheap looking bimbo's trying to look seductive on sex toys meant to be bought by women? Makes no sense at all to me.

    The rock chick's packaging is perfect to me, sweet and stylish yet functional. Made it feel like a real gift :-)

    Oh, gawd, Kitty, that is one of my biggest pet peeves. I loathe getting a new vibrator and seeing some half naked woman fake orgasming on the package. It really rubs me the wrong way...I think because it seems to imply that men are doing all the toy buying and need something nice to look at while the little lady gets her vibrator.

    I like a classy, professional package. Let me see the product, get some more information about it, but don't try to sex it up with pictures of models. I think there is a real hint about the quality of the toy's build in how they try to sell it with the package. Classy packages seems to always mean sturdier, better made toys.

    Yup I definitely agree mcbirdie, the packaging says a lot about the toy itself.

    A couple of gay guys would be a refreshing change from some of the horribly bleached bimbos I've had encasing a few of my toys. I swear, those girls look like they have more silicone in them than my 'cupboard of depravity' does. It's icky.

    So there you have it folks available @ Lovehoney for only £22.99 and if it satifys "The South Yorkshire Sex Kitten" then the rest of us are sure to be pleased.....
    (Are we on commission for this Laynie ??)
    Finally getting back to the original point...(what was that...oh yes) fully agree most sex toy packaging does look cheap vulgar and tacky, oriental girls made to look western and those wigs....looks so false and tacky.....
