Customer reviews are amazing. They tell us what you like, what you don't like, and how we can improve to make sure we're tip-top of your sex toy retailer list.
They also give potential customers an honest overview of our products which means they can make a fully informed purchase. All of this leads to happy customers and a very happy Lovehoney team!
To say 'thank you' to our hard working reviewers, we carefully select our favourite reviews at the end of each month and reward them with a prize.
This month's winner is MrsMcX for her review of the Lovehoney Bionic Bullet Cock Ring with Tongue Stimulator (£6.50). Congratulations - you've won a £100 Lovehoney voucher!
"The tongue is super smooth, and flexible. I was worried it might just sit and poke at me, but somehow Lovehoney have managed to design a cock ring that is a perfect fit."

Until not too long ago, BDSM was still considered taboo and items like bondage gear were only available in specialist shops.
In recent years, however, we've seen the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, along with celebrities like Rihanna and Britney Spears, make subjects like bondage and fetish more mainstream. Britney Spears was even spotted wielding the Fifty Shades of Grey Sweet Sting Riding Crop in a recent music video!
We're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a Fifty Shades of Grey spanking bundle, which includes the Please, Sir Flogger (£19.99), Sweet Sting Riding Crop (£24.99),You. Are. Mine Handcuffs (£14.99) and Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle (£24.99). That's a total value of over £84!
To be in with a chance to win this amazing prize, simply add your comment below before 5pm on Friday the 14th. The winner will be randomly selected and contacted by email - best of luck!

February is over and March has arrived, and from the looks of things Valentine's Day romance was in the air for many of you!
With hundreds of submissions for our Model of the Month competition throughout February, we've been astounded by the number and quality of entries.
Choosing a winner is always difficult, but this month there was one entry which stood out above the rest.

There's nothing like a lazy Sunday morning in bed, and as March has been officially declared National Bed Month by the Sleep Council, it only seems appropriate to spend a little extra time in the sack…
The Sleep Council recommends replacing your bed after 7 years, by which time you'll have spent a whopping 20,000 hours using your mattress for sleep (and other bed-related activities).
To help make your bed a better place to be, we're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a Bondage Boutique Almosta 4Posta Under The Bed Restraint Kit (worth £34.99). Just comment below on or before Friday, the 7th of March to be in with a chance to win.
This nifty restraint kit contains adjustable straps that transform your bed into a playground - and best of all, it works with any sized bed!

Lovehoney sponsored the Sex Appeal III: Mélange à Trois comedy show in aid of Brook in London last week, and it got us thinking - is anything in the world better than a good belly laugh?
In fact, many people believe that "laughology" may not only be the best medicine, it could also be key to a good sex life. Think about it - laughing puts us at ease, which helps us feel more relaxed in bed. The more relaxed you are, the more likely you are to orgasm. Win win!
Being able to share a joke with your lover and laugh off any awkward moments during sex could also help you grow closer as a couple. Do you think sharing a laugh can make you feel more intimate with your partner?
To help you get started, we're giving one reader the chance to win the exciting All Night Love Affair Dice And Card Game. This fun sex game allows you share plenty of giggles and maybe discover some new sexy moves.
To enter, simply comment on this post before 5pm on February the 28th. Don't forget to read on below for more sex news and tips.

So is bigger always better? Or do good things come in small packages? Have your say!
After experiencing a reasonably mild season so far, it seems the cold snap of winter has finally caught up with us. Much to our delight this hasn't stopped our lovely members braving the nippy weather and stripping down to submit their Model of the Month entries. Each month we choose our favourite user-uploaded photo to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney. We've been treated to a plethora of creative photos throughout January and, as usual, it's been really tough to pick a winner.
This month's winner is KinkyFuckery who submitted this fantastically sexy shot of her wearing the Gabriella Lace Top Hold Up Stockings with Back Seam (£8.99). I love her use of a 'point of view' angle which not only highlights the sheer stockings, but also shows off those beautiful glistening shoes!
Read on to find out if you were selected as one of our runners up.
Since the 2012 London Olympics, Great Britain has been a little bit sport mad. Even I, someone who would never usually watch sport on the TV, have become excited to have my morning cuppa in front of the curling highlights.
Even if you're completely disinterested in the Olympics, it's hard to watch Team GB Olympian Lizzy Yarnold win a gold medal in the Skeleton without feeling a little surge of British pride. Hurrah!
After watching the fantastic Jenny Jones claiming her bronze mdeal in the women's snowboarding, a few of us were firmly in the Olympic spirit. Whilst playing with some cock rings (as you do), the Lovehoney content team fashioned a sex toy display worthy of a medal. What do you think?
Seeing as we're feeling the love here, how do you fancy getting your hands on 1 of 5 packs of Lovehoney Magic Cock Rings worth £6.99 each?
This competition is now closed. Winners have been contacted via email.
It's a longstanding assumption that women worry more about their appearance than men, but a recent study reveals that this isn't the case.
Results show that 4 out of 5 men discuss body image on a regular basis, and more than 60% are not entirely satisfied with the way they look. With a third of men using a protein supplement and almost 20% of men thinking about their weight every day, it's clear that men worry too.
Most guys admitted to wishing they had a more muscular physique, and a staggering 35% of men said they would give up a whole year of their life to achieve their ideal body shape! However, nearly 60% of men said that body talk affected them in a negative way, and in some cases the knock on confidence actually deterred them from joining a gym or working towards a healthier lifestyle.
With results like these it seems clear that men are in dire need of a confidence boost, and what better way than a light-sculpting photoshoot designed specifically for them? Read on to find out more…
