Write a sex toy review for Lovehoney and you could be in with a chance to win a whopping £100 to spend on whatever you like! Each month we also choose a selection of highly commended reviews and reward them each with (count 'em) 2000 Oh! Points to spend as they wish - or perhaps save up for a luxury toy.
The winning review this month was written about one of our community's favourite lubes, Liquid Silk. Adding to the lube's shining reviews, we felt this month's winner gave a brilliant, unqiue account of the lube's consistency and in doing so confirmed the lube's reputation as the "foremost fornication facilitator".
Review of the Month
"The lube itself really does feel a lot different to most others I've tried. It's almost like a face cream and feels kind of greasy-oily when you first squeeze it out, although it doesn't leave you feeling like you've dropped a bat of butter between your thighs, which was my first concern…"

We’re a little bit late announcing the Lovehoney Model of the Month for September as we’ve been super busy getting lots of new lovely products live. As always, it was a challenge to choose a final winner but in the end we went with this photo of hornycouplex featuring the Anais Fanny Sheer Lace Knickers with Straps.
We loved the unusual angle of the shot which was flattering to both hornycouplex and her sexy panties. There were lots of great entries received, but we felt that this shot really had the edge thanks to the tidy background, great pose and flattering lighting.
For the month of October, we’re going to be running a themed competition for Model of the Month. We want to see photos of you wearing sexy costumes and dress-up outfits that you’ve bought from Lovehoney.
Get your sexiest Lovehoney clothing out and go role play crazy in front of the camera for your chance to win one of 5 prizes of 2000 Oh! Points. We’ll also award £100 to spend at Lovehoney for the best overall photo submitted during October.

Tips for creating a great sexy photo
- Make sure the background is clear. Clutter doesn’t fit the mood of your photo and detracts from your sexy self.
- Clean the lens of your camera before taking the photo for a clear and crisp image.
- Don’t edit ‘naughty bits’ out of your photo, instead find a sultry way of hiding them before you take the photo.
- Make sure you have good lighting as it helps to prevent blurry images.
- Have someone else take the photo for you. The shot will be much clearer and will look better. If you need to take your shot in the mirror, give it a good clean and polish first.
From today, our first ever television advert 'The Kiss' will hit TV screens across the UK. Showing a couple sharing a passionate kiss, it also features the new campaign's tagline, 'Live A Sexier Life'. Since the announcement of its release, 'The Kiss' has been causing a stir online and in national newspapers as the first commercial advertising sex toys to be aired before the 9pm watershed.
Alongside the release of the new TV ad, other advertisements will be popping up across the country, so keep your eyes open for Lovehoney posters and billboards!
Lovehoney's first ever television ad airs next week, kicking off our new campaign to encourage people to 'Live a Sexier Life'. As the first ever sex toys advert to be approved for daytime TV in the UK, it's a breakthrough in terms of the nation's attitude to sex and pleasure. Featured in the Telegraph (twice, and again!) and the Daily Mail it's already provoking intense debate - especially in comments sections like here on AOL Lifestyle, on Twitter and in blogs.
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, watch 'The Kiss' below. Let us know what you think in the comment section, or Tweet us @Lovehoney with the hashtag #TheKiss.
You could start by using our all-singing, all-dancing, all-thrusting Vibrator Finder. Simply click the image below to get help choosing the best vibe for you.
If you're really not sure where to start, then this guide breaks down the process to make sure you choose the perfect vibe first time!
The best way to start is to think about about how you're going to use your vibe. For example, if you want something for internal stimulation pay close attention to shape and movement of the toy. If you're looking for external clitoral stimulation, consider whether you might prefer a vibe made from squishy or hard material.
If you want stronger stimulation, check out our extra powerful vibrators. However, if noise levels are more important to you than power, look for something that's labelled as extra quiet. When you've got an idea of how you'd like to use your vibrator and what's important for you, we'll show you how to choose a vibrator that's going to tick all your boxes.
I’m a fantasy shopper and I love to spend hours trawling through websites adding lots of things to the basket with no intention of buying them. If I transferred everything in my Lovehoney wishlist to my basket right now, the total cost would be £1,516.77. Yeouch!
In my ideal world I’d have my big house and I’d fill it with sex furniture. An elaborate four-poster with incorporated restraints, a leather chaise longue that folds out into a play platform and a mega sex swing suspended from the ceiling of my play room. In reality I live in a one-bedroom flat and there is simply nowhere that a St Andrew’s Cross would fit unless I chuck out my Chesterfield sofa. Dilemma!
What I need is something compact but still full sized and inexpensive enough for a modest salary to afford. Inflatable sex furniture isn’t a new concept, but it hasn’t always been executed to great effect, but this week's Awesome Sex Toy has it covered…

Using a vibrating cock ring is a great way to enhance pleasure in a relationship. Not only do they provide toe-curling vibrations for both partners, but can also help to improve the quality of a man's erection. They come in an assortment of shapes and sizes, all of which are designed to stimulate different erogenous zones in different ways.
If you've been wondering how to use them, Lovehoney TV has created a video to explain the ins-and-outs about the best ways to use a vibrating cock ring:
You don't have to spend a fortune enjoy vibrating cock rings. If you're new and looking for something to get you started, try out the BASIC Sex Toys Love Ring for just £5.99.
It may be an idea to keep taking yourself to the brink and then deliberately stopping before you climax - the difference being that you’re keeping control and stopping before you want to, rather than having to stop because it gets too sensitive to continue.
Vibrating cock rings are a best-selling sex toy and tend to be one of the first toys couples try, and it's easy to see why.
Just like non-vibrating cock rings, the vibrating versions reduce blood flow out of the penis, which can help boost size, hardness and stamina. Plus, the added vibrations stimulate your partner during sex.
And despite the name, you don't even need a penis to enjoy one! Don't believe us? Take a look at our guide to making the most of your cock ring here.
