Last week we talked about what an exciting year 2014 was in the world of sex toys, but 2015 is set to be an even bigger year in terms of sex toy technology, with lots of brilliant new products due for release.
But that's not all. The much-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is being released in February, and we think the world of kink is set to be thrust into the mainstream spotlight like never before.
I've been chatting with our Online Trade Team to get the lowdown on what's set to be big in sex in 2015. With an industry insight from trade shows, suppliers and customer shopping habits, they were able to let me in on the sure-fire top trends of the next 12 months.
Check out our 15 sex predictions for 2015 below, and don't forget to have your say in the comments!
With more than half of adults still getting a stocking filled with pressies every year at Christmas, it's important to pick up some small treats in advance of Christmas Eve for your loved ones. While family and friends might get the standard socks and chocolate again this year, it's fun to get a naughty stocking filler for your lover.
With this in mind, I asked some people around Lovehoney HQ to choose their favourite sexy stocking filler for this Christmas. Read on for Lovehoney staff picks!
Straight, curved, narrow, wide, shaped like a rubber duck and not shaped like a rubber duck… Let's face it, there are so many different types of vibrators that it can be tough to know where to begin. Luckily, we're experts in vibrators*, and we're here to help.
Allow the lovely Lisa to take you through the different features of G-spot vibes, USB rechargeables and more in the video below:
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!
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.
Here at Lovehoney, we think everyone should be able to enjoy a pleasurable, fun and safe sex life. That's why we were happy to donate 1,000 condoms to raTrust, an organisation working to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. They staged an event in Bournemouth this past weekend and made this incredible video - check it out below:
Here at Lovehoney we're always genuinely excited to discover a new product which raises the bar of sex toy excellence, and we're hugely excited to introduce the amazing We-Vibe 4 Plus. Having already created the world's number one couple's vibrator, We-Vibe have announced their upgraded version of the We-Vibe 4, which can now be controlled via your smartphone.
Well, as they say, 'there's an app for that'. Perfect for both long-distance fun and for use during lovemaking, is there anything this toy can't do?
Unlike remote controlled love eggs, the We-Vibe 4 Plus doesn't need to be within range of your remote to work - you (or your partner) can control your toy via your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
Yup, you read that right. Whether you're on separate continents or across the dinner table from each other, your pleasure is ready to be controlled at the swipe of an app.
Read on to find out more and for your chance to win the brand new We-Vibe 4 Plus worth £127.99.
