Each month, customers submit photographs of themselves modelling Lovehoney lingerie in the hopes of becoming the Model of the Month and winning £100 to spend on sex toys, sexy lingerie or sexy costumes.
We then have the difficult task of choosing just one winner from the flood of gorgeous, body-confident customers who show how great their lingerie looks in real life situations.
This month we were bowled away by illumine who answered the question "how do I do bondage on a boat?" in visual form.
We loved the way she used a collar as an extra garter for the Classified Fence Net Stockings she modelled. She is July's Model of the Month, and the winner of the £100 shopping spree.
If you want to be in with a chance to win a £100 shopping spree on Lovehoney, just upload a picture of yourself wearing sexy lingerie or costumes and check the Lovehoney blog next month.
Submit your sex toy reviews to Lovehoney and you could 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.
This month, the reviews for male sex toys stood out in particular, with our winning review and 5 runners up all being written by men.
Review of the Month
"I am giving real relationships a miss at present, preferring my own company and no complications. I wanted something more than a cheap sex doll (I did have one of those years ago), something that looked good - semi-realistic, I suppose - and Hannah really fits the bill…
Hannah is a largish investment, but if you are looking for a quality doll, in terms of manufacture, styling, looks and design, she should not disappoint. A little bit of fantasy never hurt anyone and dressing her, cuddling her and going to sleep with arms wrapped around her body and breasts is a bit of fun when your life is not perhaps as exciting or fulfilling as it has been. Oh, and the sex is great too!" Read the full review by pedestrian.
Read on to find out who was highly commended and earned the points this month, and make sure you write a sex toy review so you can be in with a chance in August!
If you've ever wanted to experience more intense orgasms and a tighter sensation during sex there's a really easy way!
Kegel Balls are the perfect way to naturally tighten the muscles of your vaginal wall and make sex, or using sex toys, a more enjoyable experience.
Kegel Balls are often called Ben Wa, pleasure or toner balls, but they're all essentially the same thing. They are balls of varying weights that are designed to strengthen the muscles of the vaginal wall so you and your partner can experience tighter sensations.

With Kegel Balls you should start off with the lighter variety, and work your way up to heavier balls as your pelvic floor muscles strengthen.

I love those moments when you discover that a friend, colleague or new acquaintance is a little on the kinky side. More often than not those moments are restricted to drunken office nights out or stumbling across a naughty piece of paraphernalia at a dinner party, but there are more subtle pointers offered up by dedicated kinksters.
The Lelo Insignia range comes with a pretty brooch that wouldn’t raise an eyebrow if pinned to the lapel of an evening jacket and Ring of O- which comes from the classic Story of O - adorns many fingers (including my own) without so much as a comment. In an everyday nod to our sexual inner selves, these little markers make us feel part of a secret society and it’s all a bit fun to take part in. Unfortunately, these trinkets aren’t functional and always leave us extroverts wanting more. Cue Incoqnito.
He needs lots of reassurance that you enjoy making love with him, that this is not dependent on experience - and also that you actually like his penis!
Tit wanking is something that you see a lot in porn. Which naturally means that a lot of people want to try it. It can be difficult at first though, figuring out who goes where and what would make it easier.
Tit wanking is when a man thrusts his penis between the breasts until he's climaxed or you're both ready to move on to something else. It can be combined with oral stimulation of the shaft and head of the penis for him, as well as nipple play for her. There are loads of ways to give a tit wank that make it enjoyable for both partners.
Porn can give a slightly skewed version of how a tit wank works; not everyone is amazingly flexible with massive boobs, after all.
This practical guide will give you some ideas on how to give a tit wank and explain some ways to make it an enjoyable experience for both of you.
We also have a range of tit wank sex toys that are great for getting the same sensation without a partner.
Female ejaculation is often considered as the holy grail of sex. Notoriously difficult to achieve because of the amount of time and G-spot stimulation needed - reserved for porn stars and the lucky few.
Our poll: 'Have you ever experienced female ejaculation?' produced some really interesting (and surprising!) results.
It turns out that among Lovehoney customers, female ejaculation isn't rare - it's actually quite common!
Over 56% of people say that they have experienced female ejaculation compared to just 43% who say they haven't.
Our new poll: "Who bought the first sex toy in your relationship?" is now up and ready for your votes.
