Lovehoney Community member Shadow Collector is one very lucky lady. Not only did she receive a Secret Wishlist Present from an anonymous forum friend, but we've also chosen the review she wrote of it as our Review of the Month. The prize? £100 to spend at Lovehoney!
We loved her in-depth review of the Icicles No 24 Tentacle Glass Dildo. She even pointed out features we hadn't noticed, like the perineum stimulation offered by the textured nubs:
"The raised glass nodules provide the kind of feelings that, previous to this toy, I only have imagined existed. There is nothing that can compare to the cool, firm feel of glass. Furthermore, the handle’s shaped so that with every thrust it’ll also tickle the anus."
"To the amazing person who blessed me with the Icicles No. 24, thank you. You've changed my outlook on sex toys for the better, and it was already pretty darn positive. I love this piece and any texture aficionados will love it as well."

The exam results are in and the eager Freshers are getting ready to head off to uni for the first time with their bags full of condoms, fancy dress and cheap vodka. It fills us all with equal parts nostalgia and regret.
Uni was a simpler time, filled with to the brim with events you'd never tell your parents about, which is where our new survey comes in…
It doesn't matter if you're currently at uni (you lucky devil) or you graduated back when there was no such thing as tuition fees. We'd love to hear about all of the debaucherous things you got up to as a student.
You'll also be in with the chance of winning these prizes:
Each month, the Lovehoney Community is bombarded with dozens of beautiful images uploaded by its members.
We love to see how you wear style your sexy lingerie and other Lovehoney purchases, and that's why we started our monthly modelling competition.
That's right - each month we choose our favourite image to win a £100 Lovehoney gift card. Lovely stuff!
Our latest winner is Couple looking to spice things up, who uploaded this breathtaking image in August.
Looking like she's just stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine, Couple accessorises her lingerie with the Lovehoney Lace & Satin Blindfold and Lovehoney Lace & Satin Restraints.
We love the seductive eyes she's making at the camera and the satin tie pursed between her lips is the epitome of sexy.
Fancy a piece of the action? Upload your shot during September to be in the running for our next competition. Don't forget to read over the Photo Submission Guidelines before uploading your image.
Read on below for a look at this month's runners up:
If you've shopped at Lovehoney, chances are you've read at least one of our 180,000 sex toy reviews. These reviews are written by our customers (some of whom are sex toy testers) and are a great way to get the lowdown on a product from someone who has actually tried it.
Each month we pick our favourite recent review to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney. This month's winner tries out the TensCare Itouch Sure Pelvic Floor Exerciser with Electrical Pulses with fantastic results:
"You can treat urge incontinence and stress incontinence with this, or a combination of the two. You get a little control module - about the size of an old flip mobile phone, and the probe which is small and very well shaped to slip in and remain in place with no pain or stretching. You could easily wear it all day and not feel discomfort."
"The big question is 'does it work'? And, yes, it most certainly does! I've found that I am much tighter, and I can run now without any leakage and even jump on a trampoline, something that was impossible before."

We're kicking off our latest survey to settle the rugby vs. football debate once and for all.
But clearly we're more interested in the game that happens off the pitch…

Be a good sport and let us know your views.

Although hundreds of new sex toy reviews are uploaded to Lovehoney each week, we're always on the look out for that special one that makes us laugh, smile or change our minds about a product. That's why we started our monthly review contest, where you could win a £100 voucher to spend at Lovehoney.
This month one very poetic review caught our eye - a self-proclaimed ode to the Tracey Cox Supersex USB Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator:
"My girlfriend said: my darling,
this black thing caught my eyes
and now I can't stop wishing
for its buzz between my thighs"

If you read through some of our 180,000 sex toy reviews, you'll notice that some of our customers try out their new toys just a couple of times before they write a review, while others use them consistently for a few weeks before sending us their thoughts. However, our Review of the Month winner for June tops them all: summersun had been using (and loving!) the Tantus Realdoe Wireless Strap On Double Dildo Vibrator 7 inch for THREE YEARS before submitting her review!
In her thorough review, summersun gives a great run down of why the toy works so well in her relationship, explains the importance of discreet packaging, and gives advice on the best way to use the vibrating strapless strap-on:
"This toy gets a 10 out of 10. This is my 'desert island' toy. The Realdoe is absolutely gorgeous. When you take it out of the packaging, it is a thick cock with a bulb at the top - it looks a bit obscene, but also strangely alluring, even though I am a lesbian. I don't normally like 'realistic' toys, and my girlfriend used to hate them, but this toy converted us."
