Will you be seeing fireworks tonight? Our sex toy reviewers this week have definitely been reporting on many sensual evenings going with a bang!
This week's sex toy review round up
Testing out the utterly indulgent Jimmyjane Afterglow Massage Candle Bourbon, Mr Monster gave a review packed with alluring adjectives. "It brushed onto Mrs M's skin, soft and silky, and that's when the Bourbon scent rolled over us; smoky, sultry, spicy, heavy, heady and exotic." Read the review.
Pleasure came in (rabbit) leaps and bounds for Mandy who found the Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit Aquagasm Waterproof Vibrator had an unexpected temporary side effect. "I was more than impressed (in fact I was temporarily paralysed hehe) just by the vibrator." Read the review.
Adoring the Bondage Boutique Luxury Leather and Rubber Ball Gag this week was BashfulBabe. In fact, the whole range seems to have pleased her. "All the Bondage Boutique leather stuff seems to have that delicious smell about it, and is usually the perfect balance of durable and soft." Read the review.
You're not seeing double - there was another fan of the Bondage Boutique Luxury Leather and Rubber Ball Gag in KittyKat007. "The ball was a little unforgiving and felt huge at first but after your mouth gets used to it you barely notice the size or hardness of it. Chances are you’re too preoccupied with the size and hardness of something else in the room!" Read the review.
OK, missorgasm, we agree that the Lovehoney Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator looks like nothing else and that your description of it as "a futuristic tape dispenser" is not far off! But did it please? Oh yes! "It took nearer 30 minutes than three, but my God, it was long, slow, sensual, and 'O' so satisfying." Read the review.
Whether you've been seeing sparks or seeing red because of your sex toys, let everyone know about it and add a new review.

One of the most frequently voiced dilemas when it comes to public kink is 'What do I wear to a fetish club?'
This year Marcus T and I joined forces to photograph the best outfits of October 2010.
Because reviews help everyone decide what is going to be the best sex toy for them, we love it when you take the time to make them in-depth and honest. Each month, we give £100 worth of sex toys to the person who writes the Lovehoney Review of the Month. We also choose highly commended reviews and reward them with 2000 Oh! Points a piece. So without further ado, it's time to announce who we have chosen as October's overall winner.
Review of the Month
Winning £100 of sex toys this month was intentionless who proved that being succinct and witty is a winning combination, with his review of the Tracey Cox Supersex Stroker. Alas, the stroker did not live up to his expectations, but his review is well worth the read for the full picture.
"If there's one thing I have mastered in my lifetime thus far, it's the skill of masturbating successfully without the need for any bells and whistles. For me a toy should take you to a new level entirely or it's not really worth it… To paraphrase Woody Allen, "even my worst orgasm was right on the money". It's just not a toy I'll be rushing to use again. My right hand, I'm afraid, remains ten times the Super Stroker this could ever be."
Read the winning review.
But stop press! All is not lost, on 31st October intentionless also reviewed the Jenna Haze Fleshlight Girls Lotus Fleshlight and it appears it was much more successful. Read the review.
Highly commended sex toy and lingerie reviews in Octomber
"A very happy spankee" in the shape of Kitty_McPlunder proves that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Reviewing (and pre-reviewing!) the Bondage Boutique Leather Blindfold and Paddle with Heart Shapes "I'd convinced myself that the blindfold looked way too small and stiff to be of any use, but boy was I wrong!" Read the review.
Tupperwareheart had a pretty horrific time with the Pasante Unique Non-Latex Polyethylene Condoms, but was still able to summarise the experience with humour. "Literally the only way I could describe the feeling of these condoms is having sex through a plastic bag. The offputting rustling, the chafing, the loose fit…" Read the review
Mr xxxx writes a fantastically well-informed review of the CyberSkin Superthick Realistic Gonzo Cock, complete with care instructions - after all, "love your Cyberskin toy and it will love you". Read the review.
Review regular, BashfulBabe, got her hands on a Bondage Boutique Leather Stud-Lined O-Ring Collar and described its sensory pleasures as well as its practicalities. "This has that glorious whiff, which is further intensified as it warms up. Also, with the smooth studs on the interior side as well as outside, you can feel the lovely chill at the various points." Read the review.
BoundinBlack wrote a great review of the Remote Control 10 Function Love Egg with Sleeve and really got us thinking about the teasing his "puppy" was experiencing. "She loves it, I love it, we can't recommend this "frustrating teaser" (her words) enough…" Read the review.

However, after much deliberation we are pleased to announce that the winner of the £100 shopping spree is chloela2003. Congratulations! Hella Rouge was bewitched by the Pin Up pose she struck and the team loved the Halloween theme, with the pumpkins creating the perfect mise-en-scène.
