This month has been an absolute scorcher, so it's no wonder so many of you have been stripping down to your knick-knacks and indulging in a little camera fun for July's Model of the Month competition.
And judging from your submissions, temperatures have been as hot indoors as they are outdoors!
With over 150 entries this month, it's clear to see that more and more members are discovering the liberating power of posing in your favourite pants, and with the added bonus of being entered to win a £100 Lovehoney Gift Voucher, what's not to love?
This month's competition winner is balthazar who submitted this jaw-dropping picture of her wearing the Sexy Latex Body with Adjustable Straps.
From the lighting and setting, to balthazar's confident pose, we love everything about this photo. Black glossy latex contrasts beautifully with balthazar's porcelain skin, and glistens against the matte grey background. We don't know about you, but it reminds us of a certain ultra-sexy anti-hero - meow! Congratulations balthazar - you've won a £100 voucher to spend at Lovehoney.
Every month we receive amazing photos, but we've been astounded by the extremely high standard of your submissions this month. It's made choosing the winners even more difficult than usual (thanks!) but it's been a real treat seeing your snaps - please keep them coming in!

Review of the Month
Dave_S is our winner for June - congratulations! Not only is his review of the Tracey Cox EDGE Ultimate Performance Kit (£50.00) helpful and informative, but his (clearly, quite special) relationship with "Little Dave" kept us entertained.
"Like many middle-aged men, my body has started to let me down. My hair's going grey and my joints are starting to ache. But most worryingly of all, Little Dave isn't quite as perky as he used to be. Where once he stood proud and erect, a monument to my virility, now he is but a pale shadow of his former glory, lying broken and half-hidden in the undergrowth, like the toppled statue of a once great leader. Unlike most middle-aged men, however, I chose not to buy a motorbike but instead put Little Dave into training, to get him back up to fighting weight…."
Read Dave_S's review in full. (Seriously, it's a good read!)
To say thank you for submitting such a fabulous review, we've sent Dave_S a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything he pleases!

Sometimes it seems like there's a "day" for everything - it started with Mother's Day and Father's Day, but in July alone we're expected to celebrate National Shed Week, International Reggae Day and National Fishing Month.
However, there is one celebration coming up on Sunday* that we're happy to get on board with: International Kissing Day!
Let's face it - there's nothing like a good snog with the person you love to set the heart racing. With that in mind, we've put together a blog post with the top kissing facts for your enjoyment.
To encourage some sexy smooching this weekend, pick up some Lovehoney Flavoured Lube Bumper Pack (£4.00), which encourage kissing all over the body!
Read on below, and don't forget to leave a comment!
*It's also National Fried Chicken Day on Sunday, but we don't care so much about that one.
Some people like to keep their sex toy reviews short and sweet, while others like to go into a lot of detail, going over each and every aspect of the product.
All feedback is helpful, but this month we've been bowled over by the number of amazingly thorough reviews you've sent in, so thank you!
This month's winner is ShannonMarlene who has written a fabulous review of the Gläs Joystick Textured Glass Dildo (£19.99). Not only was her review brilliantly descriptive, but the clear headings made it super-easy to follow and digest.
"Glass really is great! It feels orgasmic upon entrance and the twists add the feeling of little bumps and really teases and caresses your entrance and inner walls. The head of the dildo hits your G-spot every time and gives a deeply pleasurable ache for more."

ShannonMarlene just won a £100 Lovehoney voucher for her review. Think you can write us a winning review? Read on to find out how to join in…

With the amount of product reviews we've received this month, we reckon Bank Holidays ought to be renamed…

Review of the Month
"First impressions: this plug is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't find a single flaw anywhere on it! I've been hankering over the clear crystal for months and it didn't disappoint; like the rest of the gems in the Rosebuds range, it reflects fragments of light into what looks like a mini nebula effect under dim lighting, which is not only pretty but also a little humorous… What's not funny about being able to cast dancing kaleidoscope lights on the wall by wiggling your butt?"
That's just a snippet of sleepycelia's review of the Julian Snelling Rosebud Light Aluminium Large Jewelled Butt Plug (£49.99) which won her a £100 Lovehoney voucher!
Not only did her review thoroughly describe every aspect of the plug, she also added a touch of humour by describing how she earned the nickname 'Princess Sparklebutt'. Read the rest of sleepycelia's review here.
