Today we're celebrating our 10th birthday! Lovehoney officially sent its very first order on the 21st April 2002 and the second was 6 few days later - it was slow but steady start!
As well as some extra-special birthday offers, we thought we'd give you all a special peek into Lovehoney HQ. So, here are 10 things you (probably) didn't know about Lovehoney…
If you picked up a copy of Fabulous in the Sun on Sunday today, you're likely have to have seen a feature on erotic book sensation and New York Times best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey. Written by London-based author EL James, Fifty Shades is about a bondage loving billionaire and his seduction and training of a female college graduate into his submissive lover.
Alice, Lovehoney's Content and Community Editor, was interviewed as part of the 'Women Breaking the Last Taboo' article based around the book's release. She discussed her role as 'sex-toy fairy' at Lovehoney, the growing popularity of sex toys, and was the perfect example of how you can have a career in the sex industry, without taking your clothes off!
Fifty Shades has opened up a lot of conversation about the role of female desire and sexuality and it's been suggested that it's helping to break down boundaries and encourage women to try new things. In the feature, Alice explained that business is booming, a clear sign that people are more willing to take control of their sexual happiness. Products including the Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator have been consistently popular, while the Sqweel was also named as one of Lovehoney's most popular sex toys.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby got hands-on with sex toys on This Morning today, as sexpert Tracey Cox gave advice on three of the most common sex problems.
Two couples explained their troubles and were given practical solutions by Tracey, while one woman explained how she had never had an orgasm despite her best efforts. Tracey Cox recently suggested Magic Wand Vibrators in her Closer Magazine column, so it came as no surprise that a mains-powered wand was her top suggestion to help Lynn achieve climax.
"That's a beast of a thing!" exclaimed Phillip Schofield as he grasped the Lovehoney Mains Powered Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator, while Holly Willoughby showed her sex toy know-how by commenting "I presume that's external?"
Tracey explained how it's worth trying a mains-powered vibrator, even if conventional vibrators have failed in the past.
The couple with a mis-matched sex drive - where he wants to have sex several times a week, while she'd be content with sex every few months - were offered some great advice to help bring the couple's sex drive into alignment. Tracey emphasised the importance of cuddling and working on an intimate connection that would hopefully satisfy both partners.
As well as Tracey's advice to increase intimacy and desire, we think something like the Tracey Cox Supersex Sensation Stroker (a sleeve that enhances hand jobs and can be used by either partner on him) would help give him the release he wants, while at the same time involving her in his solo pleasure.
The final couple featured had encountered the common problem of finding it difficult to resume a fulfilling sex life after the birth of a child. To exercise the pelvic floor and get the body used to penetration again, Tracey suggested the Supersex Toner Balls from her own sex toy and sexual health range.
At 6:45am on Saturday, Alice, Gemma and I were bleary eyed and loading ourselves and several cases into a car for a trip to Bristol. We’re not usually awake at that hour or working at the weekend but we made a special exception for Eroticon 2012, the first erotic conference aimed at writers, reviewers and sex bloggers.
Held in central Bristol, Eroticon 2012 was jam-packed with speakers and delegates from all walks of life, each with their own take on erotica and ideas about how to transform their passion into a career. Photographers, sex toy reviewers, erotic authors, performers, publishers and bloggers convened on both sides of the stage to impart knowledge and share experiences to help delegates hone their skills and spark their imagination in a series of thoughtful seminars.
As sponsors and dedicated sex toy enthusiasts, we brought along a selection of toys and treats to share with delegates and spent our time chatting to attendees, allowing them to get hands-on with some of our favourite products. Unfortunately this meant that we missed almost all of the talks and demonstrations but we had a great time mingling with delegates and speakers and we definitely enjoyed electrocuting them all with the Neon Wand. Bzzt!

We brought along two tables filled with fun including Rock Box, the Bedroom Kandi Music-Activated Vibrator, Minna Ola, Sqweel and of course… Baconlube. Our table was rarely quiet and by the end of the day the batteries were running low, the Sliquid lubes were half consumed and our contact book was bulging full with email addresses of future reviewers. We really loved the friendly, vibrant atmosphere and the open attitude everyone had with us and one another. Thank you to everyone who took the time to chat with us…
If you're in search of the strongest, most powerful vibrators then look no further than Tracey Cox's top picks.
When it came to recommending powerful vibrators for readers of her Closer Magazine column, two mains powered vibrators sprang immediately to Tracey's mind: the astonishingly powerful Rock Box Mains Powered Unisex Vibrator and the slightly more practical Lovehoney Mains Powered Deluxe Magic Wand Vibrator.
Drawing their power from the mains, these two epic toys are the most powerful vibrators sold on Lovehoney.

The inaugral awards by the UK's leading publisher or erotic fiction, Xcite Books, were set out to acknowledge and celebrate the best companies, bloggers, reviewers and sex experts who value and support the erotica market.

The award will be presented at Eroticon 2012, a conference for authors, bloggers and sex writers, in Bristol on 3rd March.

Lovehoney's bestselling Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator has made its cinematic debut in French language film "L'Amore Dure Trois Ans" (Love Lasts 3 Years) directed by Frédéric Beigbeder. That's right, the sex toy in L'Amore Dure Trois Ans is a Sqweel!
The man holding the Sqweel in the film's trailer comments, "It's obviously a woman who invented this to ruin a man's life." How wrong he is though, as the inventor is none other than Mr Trevor Murphy!
You can see the Sqweel in L'Amour Dure Trois Ans trailer below at around the 1.28 mark.
Merry Christmas everyone!
We hope you're having the happiest, sexiest Christmas ever and that 2012 brings you even more satisfaction.
In what is swiftly becoming Lovehoney tradition, we have some incredible Christmas Day offers, so you can give yourself one extra little treat today.
