This week Lovehoney's very own head buyer, Bonny Hall, was featured in the Daily Mirror discussing what it's like to work for the UK's best online sex toy retailer and what sex tips she's picked up along the way.
Talking about her humble beginnings at Lovehoney, Bonny said:
"The first time I walked into the Lovehoney warehouse about five years ago I couldn't believe my eyes - I'd never even seen a vibrator let alone some of the other stuff that filled its shelves. I was so embarrassed.
Neal and his partner Richard Longhurst had been in business for a year at that stage and I was their first employee.
Everything was a real mess. The warehouse wasn't alphabetically organised, it was arranged by which orifice a toy was designed for!"
Several years later and not only has the warehouse increased to an unbelievably large size and been re-organised by the popularity of the products, but Bonny has also become the go-to-girl for any and all information about sex and sex toys.
Here are just a few of Bonny's brilliant sex tips that she's picked up since working for Lovehoney:
If you want to learn to talk dirty, buy an erotic book. Not only will the saucy stories give you some very hot inspiration but reading scenes out to your partner is sure to be the start of a great night in.
Being adventurous in bed can be difficult, especially if you don't know where to start. Buying a naughty game like Monogamy is not only a lot of fun but it will introduce you and your partner to a whole new world of sexy ideas!
