We're getting kinky this month with a dangerously devilish read for our Erotic Book Club!
This month's chosen erotic novel is "Dangerously Bound" by New York Times best-selling author Eden Bradley. For this month only, every copy gets a free Bluebella OM..G Vibrator (£4.00) to heat up your bedtime reading.
We spoke to author Eden Bradley about what inspired her latest tale. She explains "Dangerously Bound combines several of my favorite things: a hot tattooed bad boy and the city of New Orleans."
"If you've read any of my books then you probably already know that kink is often a main ingredient, and a part of my own life, so it's a favorite theme to write about. In this case there's a lot of rope play, which was something I didn't have much experience with myself, so of course I had to do research - that's what I'm calling it, anyway."
Read on for more insider gossip from Eden and a sneak preview of Dangerously Bound…
Fancy adding to Lovehoney's 191,000 customer product reviews and be in with a chance to win? Every month we choose the best new user-uploaded review to receive £100 to spend at Lovehoney.
September's winner is Sapiosexual, who submitted an informative review that offers great advice to first time lingerie owners. We loved how she compared the affordable Classic Satin Underbust Steel Boned Corset with custom made corsetry, so a £100 Lovehoney Gift Voucher is hers to spend on anything she likes!
"If you're new to corsets and want something you can wear for several hours, you wouldn't go far wrong with this. I tried it on under one of my formal dresses and it did make me look sleeker, held me more upright, and generally looked stunning."
"It's been worn in the bedroom with a wet-look skirt where the comfort was appreciated as I needed to move around. My OH was certainly very willing to obey his Mistress's orders that evening…"

If you're looking for hands-free fun without the need for a harness, Feeldoe is the strapless strap-on for your next adventures. Offering all the pleasure of strap-ons without any straps, buckles, or snaps to slow you down.
Self-made sexpert Mia created the Feeldoe in Florida back in 2002, although the project had been in development since the 1980s. With her background in research and development of mechanical equipment, machinery design and chemical material processing, Mia was able to invent this useful and innovative couples sex toy. After years of committed research (and a patient partner helping her test the prototypes!) Mia's masterpiece came to life: Feeldoe.
After researching the best quality materials available and securing several patents she teamed up with Tantus Inc, an industry leader providing pure silicone sex toys, to get the job done in more ways than one!
If you've been reading the Lovehoney blog for a while, you'll remember us raving about Jon Millward's studies in the past (we've talked about his analysis of porn stars, as well as his survey of call girls in Britain). This "Ideas Detective" really impressed us by taking mind-boggling data and presenting it in a simple but fun way.
In fact, we were so amazed by his fascinating articles that we got in touch to see if he'd be interested in doing an analysis of Lovehoney, and - you guessed it - he said yes!
We're so pleased and proud to present the world's biggest analysis of sex toy sales - ever! We gave Jon access to non-personal data (don't worry, we would never share your personal information with anyone) from 1 million sales over a 5 month period, and his insights are incredible.
If you've ever wondered which sex spends the most on toys, which porn star is most popular or who writes the longest sex toy reviews on Lovehoney, check out our top 10 most interesting at-a-glance stats below. You can also read the full report by Jon or see our abridged version of the results. Happy exploring!
Yet another month has been and gone, and so without further ado, it's time we announced our favourite sex toy reviews from August!
As always, we want to say a big thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave us feedback, whether it's for our products, our service, or something else. We couldn't keep things running so smoothly without you.
This month's winner is shades111 for his outstanding review of the L'Amourose Rosa Rechargeable Prostate and G-Spot Vibrator. Describing every detail, from his initial impressions on opening the box, to his first experience using this vibrator, shades111 doesn't beat around the bush in telling us how much he loved his new toy! To say thank you, we've sent you a £100 Lovehoney Gift Voucher to spend on anything you like!
"As time went on I moved through the speeds and vibrations and suddenly I was presented with what I can only call a rumbling kind of vibration that just hit me like a sledgehammer. Just tilting yourself forward or moving your legs up and down will give you new experiences with each movement."

Luxury sex toy company Jimmyjane hit the cinema this week with a cameo in the comedy Sex Tape starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel.
The film follows the story of a married couple (Diaz and Segel) who try to re-invigorate their love life by making a sex tape. Unfortunately, the video syncs with the iPads of their family, neighbours and bosses.
Sex toy geeks will be delighted to see the Jimmyjane luxury vibrators FORM 2, FORM 4 and FORM 6 make an appearance in the movie. Check out what our customers think of these rechargeable vibes below.
We love seeing sex toys go mainstream - in fact, our very own Lovehoney Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator made its screen debut a few years ago.
Have you ever made a sex tape? Or will you be heading to cinema to see this comedy? Check out the trailer below.

Contrasting with last month's weather pretty drastically, it feels like summer has disappeared already! However, this hasn't put you lovely lot off stripping down for our Model of the Month competition.
Dominating this month's competition is ruffledsheets who has won the top prize for his captivating photo featuring the Blue Line Sheer V Neck Top (£5.00).
Set against a plain background and edited to a greyscale finish, this photo highlights the sheer, form-fitting quality of the garment, while flattering ruffledsheets' torso to perfection. He's cropped it just right so as to show off the entire ensemble, without showing his face. Not only does this maintain some privacy for him, but also adds a hint of mystery to this classy, sexy photo.
For all his hard work, ruffledsheets has won a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything he pleases - congratulations!
