Here's one trend that won't go away!
2013 was another huge year for bondage, with sales of blindfolds, spankers and handcuffs remaining strong.
Britney Spears even whipped out an item from our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection in her new music video, and Bettie Page fans have been treated to a luxury collection inspired by the lady herself.
In Autumn we introduced a dedicated bondage section to make shopping for whips, rope and restraints even easier.
Which leads us to…
2. Fifty Shades of Grey (Again!)
After much speculation and gossip throughout the year, the final cast members were finally announced for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption, with filming having already begun.
The Fifty Shades fever is still alive and kicking, with the Official Pleasure Collection designed by Lovehoney being expanded to include pharmacy products, in addition to sex toys and bondage gear.
New additions to the E L James approved collection, include items infused with Christian Grey's signature scent, like the Sensual Touch Massage Oil (left, £9.99).
Still haven't read the book? Pick it up (on sale!) here.

To say thank you for all your hard work every month we select our favourite user-uploaded review to win £100 to spend at Lovehoney - not bad eh?
This month's winner reviewed the Bedtime 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug (£10.00) and was particularly informative for those new to anal play, which we loved!
"I finally unboxed it and was immediately taken aback by its size. Although I'd seen the pictures and read the specifications, it seems a lot bigger and scarier when you're holding it in your hands wondering how on earth it'll fit. I'm happy to report, however, that with a little lube it slides right in, and sits fairly comfortably, even for a complete novice like myself."

We're announcing Lovehoney's Model of the Month a little late this month, but it's definitely worth the wait!
While the temperatures were plummeting in November, the sexy members of the Lovehoney community certainly weren't afraid to strip down and show off their sexy lingerie with beautiful photographs.
This month's winning picture is Cornish89's seductive bedroom shot. We loved everything about this intimate picture - from the use of background, clever colour editing and, modelesque pose.
Best of all, it shows off the Classic Satin Longline Over Bust Corset fantastically well. Steel-boned corsets like this one are fabulous for emphasising curves and accentuating that feminine shape, as Cornish89's classy photo shows.
This month's winning picture receives a £100 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything on the site, and next month it could be you! To enter, just upload a photo of yourself in your favourite lingerie from Lovehoney.
We've also chosen runners up to receive 2,000 Oh! Points to spend or save. Read on to find out if you were one of the lucky ones…
