    Forgive me if this is covered ground but I thought i would be fun to compare some items that have similar styles but different prices.

    Have you tried a bargain toy that has as much to offer as its luxury cousin?

    Have you seen two products that look the same, with big price differences?

    Are you curious about the differences and want to hear some feedback from the OA?

    I've written up a few goodies that caught my eye:

    Bullet Vibes: The Tracey bullet is very popular with newbies and pros alike but I'm also tempted by the charms of something that never requires batteries.

    Lubes: I'm a big fan of organic lubes and I like that I can save a bit with Sliquid or go all out with Yes.

    Lingerie: After learning of an underbust corset's power to reduce a man to vowel sounds, I've had my eye on all things waspie. Whilst I would give my right arm for a What Katie Did number, I think a Sweet Streak could be just as fabulous.

    Naturally, there are also times when a luxury vibe out classes the competition or the bargain vibe is a better deal.

    For example, I've always thought that the LH Basic cock ring http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=14798 is better quality and much better priced than the Durex Vibrations Ring http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=3542

    Have you spied any kind of thing that offers a pocket friendly option or a chance for a luxurious upgrade?

    To be honest I think we could add a lot of the BB range... Bondage is usually so bloody pricey!

    It's a hard question for me... I have very strict price controls in my head.

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=13682

    'Cos it's cheaper than almost all sex furniture even not in the sale.

    Mentioning these:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17220 So cheap for some pretty red backseamed stockings!

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=319 The Ladylust must beat plenty of vibes hands down!

    This is genius! Will have to have a proper forage round at some point next week. First thoughts are:

    For firm G-spot massage and combined temperature play you can either:

    Or for a bit of beginner bum-loving, there are these start butt plugs:

    I'm always on the prowl for luxury items at bargain prices, so in sales I'll not spend LESS but just buy better quality.

    £10 (from £24.99) Love Labs Supernova Glass Butt Plug: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=12219

    £16 (from £29.99) Sweet Streak Victorian Grace Corset: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17008

    Or just go for something completely different, like this fire cupping set! set: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=14361

    I think the 6th sense could be a 'no frills' Gi-Ki. It's bendable and made of silicone! Ok it lacks all the bells and whistles, but it's a bargain for a tenner!

    Splurge: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17284

    Steal: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17625#videos

    You can get it in pink too http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17616

    Splurge: Jimmyjane Chroma. I think you would have to be a bit silly to buy really.

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=8729

    Steal: Doc J alumination. Better review at a 5th of the price!

    People like different materials so worth it for some.

    Bit expensive if you think about how you throw away tons of Coke cans!
