1. New York newspaper The Village Voice has rounded up the Best and Worst of Sex 2007 and we're delighted to say that Lovehoney gets not one but two mentions.

    Like Fortune magazine, The Voice has a chortle at our Oral B Toothbrush Vibrator hilarity, listing it at the "Best Perversion of a Common Household Appliance".

    And they give the thumbs-up to our Rabbit Amnesty as the Greenest Recycling Program. It's still going if you want us to recycle your old rabbit!

    Ask Birdie…

    Oh, Sex Toys. So tempting, but how do you know what to buy? What works? What doesn't? What is even OUT THERE to try? You have questions, I have answers (most of the time…)

    Dear McBirdie,

    My girlfriend and I want to find new ways to play together and please each other. She's used the famous Rabbit before, but while she likes the intense vibrations, she actually finds the main shaft of it too big for comfort. Can you suggest anything? Also, can you suggest anything more specifically geared for couples to try together? It's only a few weeks until Valentine's Day and I want to make sure anything I order arrives in plenty of time!

    Gratefully yours,

    Playful Valentine

    Tingle Tip Toothbrush Sex Toy - Proctor and Gamble are not amused To be perfectly honest, we didn't ever expect Lovehoney to be mentioned in the august pages of Fortune magazine, so we were overjoyed to be featured (for the right reasons) in their 101 Dumbest Moments in Business.

    Actually, it's Proctor and Gamble that we've got to thank - specifically their humourless and over-the-top 66-page response to our statement that sex toys like the Tingle Tip can turn an Oral B electric toothbrush into a sex toy.

    "Improper use of the trade marks BRAUN and Oral B in this manner is misleading to the public and could potentially result in injury," they said from behind their ash-grey faces.

    Still fun: Proctor and Gamble gives toothbush sex toys the brush-off

    Even though the name is quite vulgar, a tit wank is a great way to pleasure your guy if you're not up for penetrative sex

    Orgasm Bullet Vibrator Set

    So the holidays are over. We've nursed the hangovers, we've eaten more than an army, and now we brace ourselves for the inevitable… the January bills. Did we really need to buy ALL those presents? Probably not. But we all get caught up like crazed little elves and find ourselves in the same position every year. My grandmother would call it "tightening our belts". My friend, however, summed it up rather more sadly… "the month we can only dream of things like restaurants".

    Luckily, though, that doesn't have to mean no jolly sex toy presents. No, it doesn't! Because if there is one thing you can always get pleasure from (other than just a good vibe) it is a good sale (especially when that good sale focuses on good vibrators). Lovehoney has its Sex Toy of the Day going on, but even better than that is trawling through the sale items for all the things you put off getting this last year. And you can even feel righteous doing it - just look at their original prices!

    Best deals?
