We all know how much sex toys can improve our love lives, but what else are they good for?

If your favourite suction cup dildo is sitting idly in a drawer, or a beloved cock ring has had the batteries pilfered for the TV remote once too often, then it's time to give them a new lease of life.

To celebrate Lovehoney's 14th birthday, we've popped on our best "Blue" Peter thinking caps and come up with these 14 ingenious alternative uses for your neglected toys.

From furniture focal pieces, to sports accessories, to handy household tools (hah), our crafty Lovehonians have taken DIY to a whole new level.

For the kind of life hacks that you won't see on Pinterest, just read on…
