It's a well known fact that Lovehoney customers are the best around, and I love sharing with you the nice comments our team receive daily, as well as the occasional hilarious drawings we get in the post.
Just last week, Customer Care advisor Chelsea (left) was manning the Live Chat function when she received a veritable Lovehoney love poem from a kind customer:
Lovehoney.com is THE one Clothes to please and some to tease
Silks and satins I don't look fat in
Frills and bows, for anything goes
Men and women both enjoy a sexy Lovehoney toy
Thank you Lovehoney
You can have my money
You give me pleasure
For my leisure
You help me feel in the mood
All is fun and never crude.
Of course, Chelsea couldn't not return the favour… Read on below for her hilarious response!
The gang at our favourite viral content site are at it again. BuzzFeed have always provided us with hours upon hours of diversionary delights, and this time is no different.
In the past, they have been known to put a group of their finest employees, The Try Guys, through a number of weird and wonderful tasks for our viewing pleasure. This time around the Try Guys are inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey to try out bondage.
Naturally, when we heard what they were planning we thought it would be a great idea to send them a box of Fifty Shades of Grey sex toys and the results are really rather special.
Watch the video below to find out what happens when a group of BDSM virgins try out bondage for the first time… on camera.
Spank you very much BuzzFeed!

Adult actress Lisa Ann (left) has proven the UK's most popular porn star, according to the 2014 report by video website Pornhub.
The survey analysed the viewing habits of Pornhub users, and gives quite an insight into the sexual preferences of Brits. More British people watch Lisa Ann's videos than any other adult actress, and "MILF", "British" and "Lesbian" were our most searched terms.
The findings also reveal Lisa Ann's universal appeal - she topped the polls in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Argentina, Egypt and Romania. However, Sasha Grey is still the most popular pornstar in Russia.
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.
