    Herb the Lovehoney dog

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

    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.

      Re no. 2. At least having a couple of dildoes as bookends is less embarrassing than a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey on display.

      If you use a butt plug as a wine stopper, you better use one made of silicone, which is non-porous and tasteless. Otherwise, your wine is going to taste like rubber.

      Me and my OH loved reading these, made us giggle and to be honest some of them were very plausible ideas. Not sure what guests would make of some of them though but would put a smile on my face :)

      I think the suction dildo toilet roll holder is my favourite idea! If I had one in the first place let alone spare I would honestly do that! Give the visitors a little shock and some serious laughs for me hearing their pure shock haha! :P xx

      I found a fun use for a penis ring/vibrator gadget - I was looking for something to vibrate a little glass bottle I had some radioactive isotopes in that I wanted to really mix. The penis ring is perfect! It has that nice soft rubbery ring that perfectly safely grips on the glass, and then the little vibrator built in! And, it was helping me make a neutron source!
