Sex toys are emotionally charged gifts, conveying how intimately you know your lover’s tastes and desires, and thus sex toy gifts at Christmas can be a tricky business.
Get it right and you’ll be showered with praise, compassion, and most of all, sex, while a moment’s misjudgement can cause embarrassment or even offence.
Never ones to stand idly by while their fellow humans suffer solo, we’ve created this helpful quiz to help you come up trumps with the perfect toy for your lady.
Seven questions will expertly steer you through the choppy storms of confusion to the beachy inlet of understanding, with a perfect pleasure purchase revealed at the end.
There are eight products that could be potentially turned up by our diagnostic algorithm.
Each one is a top-ranking best-seller on the Lovehoney site, minimising the likelihood of a poor pick. Just make sure your lover doesn’t already have one and you’re a shoo-in.
Upgrade your intimate experiences with Lovehoney's latest collection, Desire. Born of over a decade of experience and drawing on over 230,000 customer reviews, this new range represents the point where our expertise meets our customers' insight. The result is the ultimate premium pleasure collection.
In the works for several years, the range of six toys has used your feedback to inform its designs, cherry-picking and combining the key features from your top-rated styles.
Through a meticulous process of reworking, field-testing and feedback these toys have then been refined, revised and rebooted to realise their peak potential, and fitted with high-functioning motors to maximise sensation and versatility.
In this video, Lovehoney Product Director Bonny Hall and Product Developer Paul Jaques discuss the conception and creation of the Lovehoney Desire range.
Each month we choose our favourite new sex toy review (from our growing database of over 230,000!) to win a special £100 Lovehoney gift card. This month's winner delievered a champion review that was not only helpful but amusing - it's a perfect 10 from us! Get a taste from the below extract:
"And here we are at the start of the Kegel Olympics 2015. First up, representing Great Britain, is Caliente. She's a intermediate kegel exerciser, but at 36 she will have her age against her in this competition. Her previous personal best was with beginner jiggle balls at a featherweight of only 56g. She smashed the European beginner's record by easily holding them in all day without even feeling them move. But is she really ready for the heavyweight division? Today we're going to find out as she attempts the biggest challenge of her kegel career, the Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, weighing in at a massive 221g. Can she lift these advanced balls and manage to complete the full snatch, clean and jerk?" Read the full review.

Buying sexy underwear for your wife or girlfriend can seem like a totally daunting task. From bustiers, to basques, bras to bodystockings, it can be incredibly difficult to determine not only what your partner would like, but what would suit them, and what they would feel most comfortable wearing.
Luckily, we've created a simple and stress-free way to determine what kind of lingerie your lady woud love for this festive season: a quiz!
Containing seven questions (and not an algebraic formula in sight) that will determine your lover's likes and dislikes, this Christmas questionnaire will do all the hard work for you, and offer the perfect present from our lingerie collection based on your answers.
All you need to find out before you take the quiz is your partner's bra and dress size (which you can do by having a quick snoop at the labels in her underwear drawer), and pick one of the multiple choice answers for each question to reveal your sexy solution.
What was in the water this month? We were blown away by the calibre of entries to our Model of the Month competition during October.
Our overall winner this month is SteamyBedtime who delighted us with a host of bum-revealing shots. My favourite is this spankingly good action shot featuring the Fifty Shades of Grey Twitchy Palm Spanking Paddle and Lovehoney Spoil Me Satin Cage Brief Red. See the uncropped image here.
In Lovehoney tradition, Steamy will be receiving a £100 gift card to spend on sex toys and lingerie. Bravo!

If sex toys are like buses, then the pre-Christmas period is the stop where all three are coming at once.
We got a sniff of the upcoming festive rush last week, when two of the most highly anticipated sex toys came into Lovehoney HQ to be measured, profiled, photographed and generally pampered before going live on the site.
Both releases are from highly reputed companies. With one designed for clitoral use and the other as a male toy, everybody wins!
Grab one for yourself and be the first on the innovative pleasure bandwagon, or start stockpiling gifts for Crimbo and tuck one away for your lover (if you can wait that long to give it to them).
Now we all love a good video. But rather than amusing clips of cats falling off things, we're really excited to show you our brand new set of vids that show off both our beautiful Lovehoney Lingerie collections and our even more beautiful models, Sabine and Leela. And if you’ve been struggling with which item to pick, they’re well worth a look.

With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey showing no signs of abating, and pioneering kinksters like Bettie Page soaring back into the limelight, couples all over the globe are opening their minds (and bedrooms) to bondage.
Couples often ask us how they can inject some kinky fun into their bedroom adventures while maintaining intimacy and romance. Understandably, for some couples, the hard leather and steel look just doesn't do it for them.
Realising that there's still quite a big jump in the product market from 'no bondage experience' to 'beginner's bondage', as well as a tendency for fetish styling to be a bit intimidating (even if the products themselves aren't) we decided to do something about it.
We're very happy to announce our new bondage brand, Tease by Lovehoney; a range of sensual bondage products made from inviting materials and designed for absolutely anyone to use.
So whether you're new to bondage, or know your stuff but want to bring the romance back, read on to discover why Tease by Lovehoney is a perfect addition to your toy box.
