That's exactly what we've done to select a winner for Review of The Month: a competition that rewards your raunchy writing skills with a $200 Lovehoney voucher.
Hot off the press this month and walking away with that sweet, sweet prize is one of our most regular reviewers, Shadow Collector, with her account of the Bondage Boutique Extreme Wrapped Rattan Cane. This community member is certainly steaming up her S&M antics, adding to the continuum theory of pain and pleasure. Whether pain is your pleasure or not, we "cane" certainly believe that this is hers.
"This beautifully simple cane was the toy that took my S&M playtime from lukewarm to Jalapeño hot. Every detail, from the flawlessly smooth plastic coating to the springy and unforgiving rattan shaft works seamlessly together to deliver delicious agony with minimum effort.” Read the full review here.
Congratulations, Shadow Collector, and enjoy your prize!
Incredibly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, teddies and bodysuits have recently seen a resurgence in popularity.
Fashion bloggers are tucking them into high-waisted shorts, celebs are flashing them on the red carpet, and tons of high-street stores are once again slipping them onto the shelves.
But whilst the fashion world is going crazy for teddies as outerwear, many of us are still reluctant to wear them as sexy lingerie - a fact that I found curious, as there are some truly stunning bedroom bodies out there.
So I took to the forums to ask our customers about their reservations when it comes to the all-in-one, and some of the answers I got may surprise you…
Read on below to see the most common teddy dilemmas, and my top tips for how to find the perfect body for your - well - body.
Just as with the hair on our heads, eyebrows, and faces, pubic hairstyles come in a wide array of shapes and colours. Some people like it balder than a US Congressman; some people like it neatly trimmed; and others prefer to follow the spirit of Woodstock, and let it run wild and free.
So, should you shave your short 'n' curlies? The truth is, there's no right or wrong answer to that question. Those who advocate for the full Hollywood (that is, to say, entirely bare) say that it feels cleaner, is less hassle for their sexual partners, and increases sensation.
The Full-Bush-Administration, however, would counter that pubic hair is there to protect your sensitive areas, makes you less prone to catching STIs, and also helps to retain libido-boosting pheromones that make you even more sexually appealing.
Many also find their partner's personal preference often influences their own choice, but when it comes down to it, the decision (and the razor) are entirely in your hands. If you are, however, in the staggering 92% of women and 83% of men who primp their pubes in some way, then just read on for our finest styling tips.
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that traffic warden who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practises that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

"This vibrator actually blew me across the bed. Seriously. I went from one corner to the opposite. Yes, you did read the first line correctly. This toy actually made my body leap across the bed.
