We recently asked you to complete our Sexy Summer Survey, and you came out in your droves to tell us all the details of your fun in the sun. Well the results are in, and they speak for themselves!
It won't come as any surprise that as a nation, we love celebrating July 4th. It's also clear that we love sex too. But who knew we were so good at multi-tasking?!
That's right, something about this day must make us frisky, because a whopping 75% of us have had sex on July 4th, while a quarter of Americans have snuck off during 4th of July celebrations for a quickie with their partners!
We're delighted the US as a nation is so patriotic and happy to get down and dirty for our good country. But the revelations don't stop there! Read on for more of the shocking results...

Just last week, Customer Care advisor Chelsea (right) 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!
Did you know that Lovehoney has developed some of the most coveted pleasure products available on the market?
From sex toys developed by our in-house sexperts Tracey Cox and Annabelle Knight, to official collections inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey and the queen of pin-up Bettie Page, we've been busy making some of the most popular sexy products around.
In fact, our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection just won Soft Bondage Line of the Year at the annual XBiz awards - hoorah!
Read on to see 10 of our very favorite sex toys, lingerie, and bondage items created right here at Lovehoney.
The luxe Bettie Page Picture This Spanking Bat is beautifully designed and features 2 broad spanking surfaces, an ergonomic handle complete with a wrist strap and is adorned with a classic black and white photo of Bettie Page in a cheeky pose.
"The bat itself is beautiful. The photo side is harder, and the picture quality is immaculate. The quilted side is very soft to the touch. I love the shape and the "Bettie Page" ribbon, which keeps your grip of the bat more secure in use, giving you more control." - LibraLover, Lovehoney customer

Who better to take a look at and analyze the sheer volume of Lovehoney sales data but the very talented Ideas Detective himself, Jon Millward - the man who brought us: Deep Inside: A Study Of 10,000 Porn Stars And Their Careers and Dirty Words: A Probing Analysis of 5000 Call Girl Reviews.
Jon studied 1 million Lovehoney orders, minus any personal distinguishing details like last name, address or zip codes. He then added up all the liters and meters and created a gorgeous in-depth infographic to delight our imaginations and boggle our minds.
Read on for the top revelations from his study, or read the full (53 page!) report over on Jon's blog.

You may or may not have noticed that on Lovehoney's contact page, among the reasons for contacting us including "Question about a product" and "Where's my order?", there's one option you can select that says: "I want to say something nice".
Even if you did notice, you may not know what clicking that heading does. Well, when you decide to say something nice, your email gets forwarded to the entire company - and it never fails to make the Lovehoney staff smile when positive customer feedback appears in our email inboxes.
