    Tracey Cox EDGE Ultimate Performance Male Sex Toy Kit

    Yet again you've dazzled us with your sex toy reviews this month! From detailed and precise, to funny and entertaining, your feedback is always a pleasure to read and this month has had us smiling from ear-to-ear.

    Review of the Month

    Dave_S is our winner for June - congratulations! Not only is his review of the Tracey Cox EDGE Ultimate Performance Kit helpful and informative, but his (clearly, quite special) relationship with "Little Dave" kept us entertained.

    "Like many middle-aged men, my body has started to let me down. My hair's going grey and my joints are starting to ache. But most worryingly of all, Little Dave isn't quite as perky as he used to be. Where once he stood proud and erect, a monument to my virility, now he is but a pale shadow of his former glory, lying broken and half-hidden in the undergrowth, like the toppled statue of a once great leader. Unlike most middle-aged men, however, I chose not to buy a motorbike but instead put Little Dave into training, to get him back up to fighting weight...."

    Read Dave_S's review in full. (Seriously, it's a good read!)

    To say thank you for submitting such a fabulous review, we've sent Dave_S a $200 Lovehoney voucher to spend on anything he pleases!

    This month we've been astonished by the amount of fabulously detailed, well-written, thorough feedback we've received - so thank you!

    Our competition winner for this month is ShannonMarlene. She wrote us this amazing review of the Gläs Joystick Textured Glass Dildo which not only described everything you need to know about glass toys, but was also separated with clear headings which makes it super-easy to follow and digest.

    "Using this toy is the first time I've ever 'squirted'. I experienced a full and intense orgasm without any clitoral stimulation! And it was simply amazing! So, I'd definitely say that every girl needs some glass in her collection! It's such a unique experience and the temperature versatility is phenomenal!"

    The Submissive: Lovehoney's Book of the Month (With Vibrator and Extract!)

    Looking for a sexy new read to get you hot under the collar? We've chosen The Submissive by best-selling author Tara Sue Me as the Lovehoney Book of the Month for June, and it's just the thing to awaken your desire - especially when enjoyed with the free vibrator!

    Tara Sue Me is one of my favourite erotic writers, due to the powerfully arousing way she spins her tales - and The Submissive is no exception.

    In this novel, Abby finds herself suddenly involved in the sexy world of S&M, which is a million miles away from her librarian day job. Little does she know the handsome and sophisticated Nathaniel West is going to turn her life upside down in his search for a new submissive...

    After just one weekend at Nathaniel's country mansion, Abby finds herself at his mercy - but can their S&M relationship go beyond business?

    Pick up The Submissive during June and enjoy a free treat on us! We'll send you a Lovehoney Powerful G-Spot Vibrator with every copy, while stocks last.

    What's A Sexologist? Interview with Juliet AllenIn honor of Adult Sex Education Month (#AdultSexEdMonth) we got in touch with renowned Australian sexologist and writer, Juliet Allen.

    The first question that came to mind was simple: What does it mean to be a sexologist? We were pleased to get a chance to speak with Juliet and find out!

    Q: For those that don't know can you tell us, what's a sexologist?

    A: Sexology is the study of sex. As a sexologist I spend my time studying all aspects of sex and sexuality and then put my study to good use by working as a sexuality coach, educator and writer. A day in my life as a sexologist can include a 1:1 coaching session with a client, writing a sex-related article for a blog, going into schools and educating youth, running a women's sexuality workshop on orgasm... My days can be diverse, fun and interesting and I absolutely love my career choice!
