Whether you've been lucky enough to snap up one of the amazing cheap holidays advertised everywhere you turn this summer or you're having a romantic staycation, how does the thought of making it extra special, indulgent and even slightly naughty appeal to you?
We know that there are loads of Lovehoney customers in relationships who use all sorts of toys as part of their day-to-day sex lives. The question was though, when in a relationship who takes the plunge and buys the first sex toy?
We asked the question, ‘Who bought the first sex toy in your relationship?’ and got some interesting results. It seems that when it comes to Lovehoney customers that men are more likely to buy the first sex toy.
Almost 45% of those who voted said that it was the male partner who bought the first toy in their relationship. Only 35% said that it was the female partner who introduced the first sex toy.
The smallest amount of votes went to the answer, ‘We bought it together’. Only 20% of those who voted said that they made a joint decision about the first toy in their relationship.
Our new poll, ‘Which is your favourite 69 position?’ is now up and running!
If you fancy discussing your vote visit the Which is your favourite 69 position? thread on the Lovehoney forum.
Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who voted in our last poll and posted in the forum - we love hearing from you!
It’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes if you want to avoid gnarly gnashers. This week's Awesome Sex Toy has been thoughtfully designed to take care of vagina dentata, but you don’t have to have a set of canines in your cooch for a toothbrush vibrator to be of benefit to your sex life.
If you’ve ever asked a search engine “Can I use an electric toothbrush as a vibrator?” you might have overlooked the orgasmic capabilities of this humble household essential.
Don’t pay attention to the advice littering cyberspace proclaiming that electric toothbrushes will sand your clit off, cause injury and just feel crap.
Electric toothbrushes can and do make good vibrators and they make even better vibrators with a specially designed Tingletip Electric Toothbrush Clitoral Stimulator on board…
Each week, hundreds of people find Lovehoney after searching the internet for solutions to their sex problems.
Our alternative agony aunt Hella answers the questions you were too shy to ask anyone (except Google).
How to discreetly dispose of your dildo
I know this problem all too well. It’s difficult to throw your dildo out without marching it to your local dump with it held aloft like the Statue of Liberty’s torch. But fret not, there is an easy alternative…
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!
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.
Check out our guide, How to Use Kegel Balls for more information and advice about how to use these fantastic strengthening tools.
The Sqweel 2 and Sqweel Go Oral Sex Simulators are revolutionary sex toys that emulates the sensations of oral sex with a series of soft silicone tongues attached to a rotating wheel.

Both versions of the Sqweel are designed to stimulate the clitoris and produce fully satisfying, intense clitoral orgasms. With varying speeds and actions to choose from, you're spoilt for choice.
Here are a few tips on how to get the most from your Sqweel and how to make those amazing tongues work best for you.
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.
Here at Lovehoney we have so many Fleshlights on offer that it's pretty difficult to choose which one is right for you.
