Election fever gripped the nation yesterday as voters turned out in their millions to determine the next tenant of 10 Downing Street. With queues running out the door at some polling stations, most of us viewed the task as our democratic duty rather than a pleasurable playtime, but perhaps we just weren’t thinking creatively enough…
For yesterday’s secret ballot, Lovehoney member naughtboi had a second secret hidden away - a Lovehoney Sensual Glass Butt Plug. A small, 4-inch plug with a flared base to guard against unwanted travel, naughtboi’s review mentioned how the size and shape means the plug is ideally suited to wearing out and about, and discreet enough to go unnoticed:
“Perfectly made and easy to insert, and best of all is it's a great size for just popping in and going about your daily business… As soon as it arrived I cleaned it and popped it in and went down to the shops and then the polling station to vote and no one knew I had it inserted.”
Giving a whole new meaning to the term ‘independent party’, naughtboi’s solo fun proved voting doesn’t have to be dull - think how this could improve the turnout for 2020.

Are you ready for more? A smouldering still of Jamie Dornan trying on a black satin mask has just been released, which can only mean one thing - dates for Fifty Shades Darker AND Fifty Shades Freed have been announced, and we can barely contain our excitement…
The movie still depicts a scene from the iconic Fifty Shades Darker masquerade ball, and it looks every bit as sexy as we'd imagined.
Universal Pictures have confirmed that Fifty Shades Darker will be released on 10th February 2017, followed swiftly by Fifty Shades Freed on 9th February 2018.
We're excited to learn that Niall Leonard, E L James' husband is writing up the screenplay, whilst Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are expected to return to their roles as Anastasia and Christian.
Filming is due to start early next year - so watch this space for more sexy stills and news.
Anyone who took our recent "How Well Do You Know Lovehoney" quiz will be familiar with our (much beloved) former mascot, Honey.
Honey was the face of Lovehoney for 9 years until she retired in 2011, but she's clearly not forgotten.
We were delighted earlier this week when a Lovehoney fan surprised us with her take on Honey, complete with Barbarella hair and trademark "H" dress.
We love that she's holding the Lovehoney Waterproof Mini Magic Wand Vibrator too - what a nice touch!
We've given the artist (blogger Emmeline Peaches) a bunch of Oh! Points to say thank you.
See the full size image and the original Honey artwork below:
This month, we've teamed up with the gang at Kaleidoscope Entertainment to find out all about your fetishes and fantasies.
It's all in aid of the brilliant new movie A Funny Kind of Love, hitting cinemas on Friday 8th May.
The film follows five couples as they attempt to broaden their sexual horizons with some hilarious outcomes.
Exploring a few fairly common and a few fairly niche fetishes, A Funny Kind of Love depicts the trials and tribulations that many modern couples face as they attempt to keep their spark alive.
It's definitely worth a watch if you want a giggle (or even some sexual inspiration). Check out the trailer below.
Our movie-themed survey takes five minutes to complete and you could be in with the chance of winning our Sexual Fantasy Bundle which is worth over £120.
Can you believe that Lovehoney's birthday has come around again?
It seems like only a few months ago we were celebrating our 12th birthday with a bombardment of Lovehoney facts, history and nostalgia for days gone by.
Now that we're entering our rebellious teenage years, I thought I'd turn the tables and test your Lovehoney knowledge with a fun little quiz.
Test your Lovehoney knowledge below, and make sure to tell us your score in the comments below.
We'll be choosing one commenter at random to win a Lovehoney Magic Wand Couple's Gift Bundle (worth over £100!) Best of luck!
Note: This competition is now over, and a winner has been selected. But feel free to complete the quiz for fun!
Here at Lovehoney we love finding out about what makes our customers tick and this month, we are finding out which sex positions really hit the spot (no pun intended).
So if you prefer doggy over missionary or cowgirl over reverse cowgirl, we want to know.
In return for taking part in our survey, you could be in with the chance of winning our Ultimate Pleasure Bundle which is worth £120.
Included in this month's mega bundle:
Hands up who wants Hot Sex in their lives?
Sexpert Tracey Cox shows you how to get the sex life of your dreams in her best-selling classic Hot Sex: How To Do It. Pick it up from Lovehoney this month, and you also get a free pack of Lovehoney Assorted Flavoured Lubricant Sachets to help you get started on your sexual re-awakening.
Tracey Cox is Britain's most renowned sexpert, sex author and relationship agony aunt. You may also recognise her as the designer of two of our best-selling sex toy ranges: Supersex (sex toys and bondage for couples) and Edge (stamina training for men).
Hot Sex: How To Do It is the first of Tracey's 15 books about sex and relationships, and a classic tome in its own right. Talking you through the ins-and-outs of sex in her unique, witty writing style, Tracey uses interviews and glossaries to give an overview of everything sex you need to know.
Well, not quite, but crotchless knickers are close enough!
We received 150+ new user photos during March alone, and lots of you took this opportunity to get in the mood for spring and flaunt your floral favourites. Picking just one winner has been tricky, but we did it!
Model of the Month
Stealing the show this month is Keksit who is wearing the Ann Devine Lace Crotchless French Knickers (£5.00) and a sexy basque in her photo. Combining bright reds with contrasting black lace, this photo really pops and totally deserves the top prize of a £100 Lovehoney gift voucher. Congratulations!
Keksit's use of colour frames the image (and her bottom!) beautifully, while her angled pin-up pose manages to show off the crotchless gusset and protect her modesty at the same time - great work!
