As if you needed more proof that sex is good for you! Seperate research conducted in the US and South Korea suggests that not only does sex make us feel good, it can also have a positive effect on our intelligence.
One group of researchers monitored lab mice and found that after 30 minutes of sex a day, the mice "showed signs of improved cognitive function", while the other found that sex can reverse the ill effects of stress on memory.
While there are many obvious benefits to a good sex life, we tend not to think about the postive health effects in the heat of the moment.

It's time to announce our latest Lovehoney Model of the Month winner!
While we received many fantastic entries in December, the top prize of £100 to spend at Lovehoney had to go to community member Labyrinth for this stunning shot featuring the iCollection Racer Back Brocade Corset and G-String Set (£15.00).
Bathed in natural light, the model literally glows in this beautiful corset set. I love the intimate feel of the photo and the vibrant colour of the lingerie and model's hair, silhouetted against a bright background.
Congratulations to Labyrinth, and enjoy spending your Lovehoney voucher.

Review of the Month
This month we chose Tectonic Tiger's review of the Lovehoney Magic Cock Rings (6 Pack) (£7.99) to win our grand prize. His review was informative and thorough, and we especially liked his use of the term "man-cannon".
"Not only will you and your 'other half' notice the immediate difference that these make to your size and firmness, you should also benefit from a greater intensity when ejaculating and you may well be shocked at just how far your man-cannon can fire its ammo. To say that I highly recommend these is an understatement."

Informative feedback which makes us giggle is a (ahem) "sure fire" way of getting your review spotted and in the runnings to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney.

Question time: You're stranded on a desert island and have to choose between a lipstick or a vibrator. Which would you opt for?
It should be a no-brainer, but considering 93% of women have said they'd never give up make-up, we're not so sure.
Luckily, we have the perfect product for anyone struggling to choose - the Kiss Me Lipstick Clitoral Vibrator (£14.99) looks like a cosmetic from the outside, but holds a sexy secret inside.
The discreet sex toy appears in February's edition of Cosmopolitan, where they give it a five star review.

To say thank you for all your hard work every month we select our favourite user-uploaded review to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney - not bad eh?
This month's winner reviewed the Bedtime 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug (£10.00) and was particularly informative for those new to anal play, which we loved!
"I finally unboxed it and was immediately taken aback by its size. Although I'd seen the pictures and read the specifications, it seems a lot bigger and scarier when you're holding it in your hands wondering how on earth it'll fit. I'm happy to report, however, that with a little lube it slides right in, and sits fairly comfortably, even for a complete novice like myself."

We're announcing Lovehoney's Model of the Month a little late this month, but it's definitely worth the wait!
While the temperatures were plummeting in November, the sexy members of the Lovehoney community certainly weren't afraid to strip down and show off their sexy lingerie with beautiful photographs.
This month's winning picture is Cornish89's seductive bedroom shot. We loved everything about this intimate picture - from the use of background, clever colour editing and, modelesque pose.
Best of all, it shows off the Classic Satin Longline Over Bust Corset fantastically well. Steel-boned corsets like this one are fabulous for emphasising curves and accentuating that feminine shape, as Cornish89's classy photo shows.
This month's winning picture receives a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything on the site, and next month it could be you! To enter, just upload a photo of yourself in your favourite lingerie from Lovehoney.
We've also chosen runners up to receive 2,000 Oh! Points to spend or save. Read on to find out if you were one of the lucky ones…
