1. Make 2014 The Year of Great Sex! Plus, Five Chances to Win!

    Win 1 of f5 LOvehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner

    Happy New Year, one and all!

    If you're like the majority of us, you'll have started off the year with the best of intentions - to get fitter, lose some weight or learn a new skill. However, it's the sad truth that many of these promises fall by the wayside come February.

    But your sex life is one thing you shouldn't ignore this year. There's no reason why 2014 be the year you have the best sex of your life!

    Why not get your year off to a good start by cleaning up your toy box?

    We're giving away 5 bottles of Lovehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner (worth £4.99 each) this week to our lovely winners. To be in with a chance to win, just add your comment below before 5pm on Friday the 10th of January.

    Read on below for more tips and tricks for starting the year off with a bang.

    • Speaking of exercise, when was the last time you did you Kegels? We have lots of Kegel exercisers and jiggle balls to turn that boring internal workout into a stimulating prelude to sex. Try the Tracey Cox Supersex Toner Balls (right, £19.99) to enjoy pleasurable jiggling sensations that also remind your muscles to contract.
    • Planning on finding a significant other online this year? Your profile picture could be more important than you think. This article lists the pictures to avoid if you want to make a good first impression. Although it's geared towards men, I think many apply to everyone. Have you ever tried online dating? [8 Pics Men Should Avoid - The Stir]
    1. If you're having casual sex, using condoms needs to be a resolution you stick to. Check out our How to Use Condoms guide to make sure you're fully protected. Our Video of the Week serves as a reminder that condoms can't protect you from everything, though. Especially Miley Cyrus.

    The winner of the Sqweel Go USB Rechargeable Oral Sex Simulator (worth £39.99) from last week is Caroline. Remember to comment below for your chance to win one of five Lovehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner (worth £4.99 each)! The winner will be chosen at random and contacted by email, so make sure to use one you check regularly.

    Wait! That's not everything

      no resolutions for me, I think they're pointless! I'm pretty sure gym owners are loving this time of year though.

    • K-lee: January 05, 2014 11:30
      Happy new year, could definitely use some cleaner for my "little" collection ;)
    • Mark: January 05, 2014 11:37
      Have bought a Fresher w/ a bunch of anal toys, and TBH, although the stench wasn't removed, it is the only thing that's left on the toy after washing w/ this. One like for this toy-friendly detergent ;)

      Two things though: The label should be made more easily removed (LH is famous 4 sex toys, anyone knows =.="), and the little left-over scent put me off from "cumming like a wrecking ballllll !"

    • Laura: January 05, 2014 11:44
      I'm definitely not ignoring my sex life; I've already bought 3 new toys this year!

      We're in sexual overdrive here - 5 days in to 2014 and 4 purchases so far from lovehoney! We could do with some cleaner. I could also do with going back to work to stop me from buying anymore sex toys.
    • wildflower: January 05, 2014 15:45

      Last week I used Detol to clean the wife's vibe,
