This week on Frisky Business we got to grips with all things international!
From researching the Australian consumer to launching a German website, the team at Lovehoney HQ showed they are certainly a well-travelled bunch.
Sarah took the plunge and moved down under in order to help recruit Aussies for our Brisbane office, and customer care couldn't believe how powerful two Magic Wand vibrators were in their staff training meeting.
We also followed Stephanie on her German journey, from her first days and trial tasks (an interview here is a little bit different from what you might be used to!) to being offered a full-time position in her dream role.
Because we love you, we've put together a delicious prize bundle bursting with goodies from last night's show.
Don't forget to tune in to Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242) next week for the next instalment and product giveaway!
Looking for a top-rated vibrator? Well, Good Housekeeping might not be your go-to magazine for sex toy advice, but this month the publication, which is generally better-known for other household appliance recommendations, has conducted its most intimate product test ever.
A panel of 100 women put a selection of vibrators to the test, including the Rocks Off Bullet (£12.99) and Mini Discretion Vibrator (£9.99).
Coming top of the bunch was the Mimi by Je Joue (£64.99): “A silicone pebble that fits in your palm for external use, with a range of settings from subtle pulsing to deep vibrations.”
The biggest pro of the winner? “Cute, feminine, feels nice in the palm and is not a bit scary.” A long-standing favourite of the customer care team here at Lovehoney, we think the Mimi by Je Joue is more than deserving of pole position. With its couple-friendly design, super-strength vibrations and discreet pebble-like look, it’s the perfect treat.
Tonight sees episode four of Frisky Business hit our screens and we're all asking the same thing: where has the time gone?!
In and amongst the ongoing saga that is the amazing Returns Department, this Frisky episode covers all things international, letting viewers in behind-the-scenes of our mission to deliver sexual happiness to the whole world!
The team get to grips with the Australian market and make some hilarious discoveries, whilst Customer Care Manager Sarah is sent Down Under to kick-start the Aussie recruitment process.
We follow intern Stephanie as her placement comes to an end. Will Richard decide her German language skills are needed by Lovehoney?
Plus, we meet Victor, the Lovehoney warehouse's biggest resident. What are you waiting for? Set your reminder now!
Tune in to Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242) at 10pm.

Did you enjoy last night's Frisky Business?
Three episodes down and we're half way through the series – we hope you're enjoying it as much as we are!
This week's episode saw Lovehoney's very own burlesque expert Jess talk all things Bettie Page at a tattoo convention, while the content team got all glammed up in corsets for a 1950's inspired burlesque show.
Episode 3 also saw how a shipment of mouldy stock put a dampener on things, whilst Customer Service explained how much FREE delivery costs (hint: it's free!)
We also saw Team Lovehoney getting to grips with some electrifying new products, and Cazz having a few issues with one of Lovehoney's most expensive sex machines.

But first for inspiration, authors are frequently asked what inspires their characters. Beth Kery explains that she had several sources of inspiration for the main characters in "Because You Are Mine".
"I often write sexy alpha males, but Ian was a bit of a departure for me. That’s not to say that as a high-powered business entrepreneur and sexual dominant that Ian isn’t the epitome of an alpha hero. Is he ever!"
"It’s often the young and innocent who see most truly, and that’s certainly the case with Francesca. I wanted Francesca to be strong and talented despite her naiveté—an unpolished jewel that Ian immediately recognises as being priceless."
