April has arrived with an erotic treat for you, and as always, Lovehoney's Book of the Month comes with a free gift! Enjoy a Cupid's Mini Bullet along with Beth Kery's bestselling erotic novel: Because You Are Mine.
Authors are frequently asked what inspires their characters, so we asked Beth Kery and she enlightened us on the inspiration for her main characters:
"I envisioned him almost like a Harlequin Presents type billionaire tycoon made about a thousand times sexier... There has to be some sort of crack in this type of controlled, powerful character, some wound that the heroine helps heal."
"It's often the young and innocent who see most truly, and that's certainly the case with Francesca. As an artist, she has the ability to see the world with unique clarity, and that includes Ian Noble."
With a deluge of product reviews being submitted throughout March we're quickly building up an impressive collection of customer feedback - thank you!
This month's Review of the Month competition features 3 of our favorite user-uploaded reviews from March.
The overall winner for March is Ungifted with his review of the Kinklab Hammerhead Male Stroker Magic Wand Attachment. Congratulations - you've won yourself a $150 Lovehoney voucher to spend on whatever you like!
"Then I turned the wand on and my life changed. Oh, my, god! For the majority of the time I keep the wand on at its lowest setting as it seems to generate more rumbles (rather than vibrations) which seems to favour this attachment.
"What I love about this is that even without stroking yourself, the sensations from this are so unique, so powerful, so amazing that you can just go hands free."

My name is Simone and I’m a 30-something sex and relationship writer, columnist and blogger who just happens to live with her 65-year old mother. Before I explain what that’s like, we need to back up a bit.
Back in 2009 - on the cusp of my 30th birthday, I started writing Skinny Dip - my personal blog about love, dating and sex - so I would have a place to tell stories and sort through the romantic wreckage of my 20′s.
My goal was to use my blog as a portfolio of sorts, in hopes that I would be able to break into writing professionally. Thanks to a lot of hard work, a year after starting my blog I scored my first freelance writing job.
This was also around the time that I was approached by a online adult retailer to review sex toys and lingerie. A sex and relationship blogger was born!

The smooth feel of a full bodystocking is sexy and revealing like no other lingerie.
Quite a while back the folks at Lovehoney did a survey among our community and found that many of us agree that bodystockings are sexy! Here's what one shopper said:
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE bodystockings!!! I find them very flattering: like being naked but decorated and they emphasise feminine curves magnificently."
Do you agree? Have you tried this type of lingerie yet?

Condoms offer a peace of mind that can mean the difference between relaxing and enjoying a sexual experience and being stressed or anxious.
Condoms are one of the only forms of birth control that men take responsibility for. And isn't taking responsibility so sexy?
Being prepared to get it on, knowing the consequences, and taking precautions to make sure that the fun you are having is not going to have lasting implications is also super sexy.
We want to know: what are your favorite kinds of condoms? Just like sex toys and lingerie, we see trends in the type of condoms people shop for.
Looking for a the perfect condom for you? Read on to learn more about condoms, including some curious facts, plus you can win!
Here's your chance! Comment below before April 11th and you could win two packs of Swoon Undercover Ultra Thin Condoms (24 condoms total!) to enjoy.
Rabbit style or dual action vibrators have been providing effortless orgasms since Charlotte fell in love with hers on Sex and the City.
Unlike most phallic vibrators, rabbits are not only made for vaginal penetration. The addition of protruding bunny ears stimulate clits, labia, perineum, penises, and anuses too! The possibilities with these rabbit vibes are only limited by their flexibility and your imagination.
Now here's the pickle: There are so many styles, sizes, and colors of rabbit vibes to choose from that it can become difficult to make a decision about which one is right for you.
I've selected my top choices for every budget, from $30 to over $150. All the vibes featured here have the added bonus of quality nonporous silicone material, making them the top picks at any price.
We love reading your sex toy reviews - they let us know why you love shopping with us, as well as the things we could improve on.
They also help new customers make informed decisions which helps them find the perfect sex toy. All of this leads to happy customers and a very happy Lovehoney team!
Every month we carefully select our favourite reviews to win a fantastic prize.
This month's winner is MrsMcX for her review of the Lovehoney Bionic Bullet Cock Ring with Tongue Stimulator. Congratulations - you've won a $150 Lovehoney giftcard!
"The cock ring is made of silicone, and as my husband is quite girthy he often has problems with silicone cock rings feeling too tight, but this cock ring is made from extra stretchy silicone, meaning he had a perfectly snug fit, that didn't cause any discomfort."
