Ever wondered how many cock rings it takes to encircle the base of the Eiffel Tower or how many water-coolers full of lube Lovehoney customers use each year? Us too. That's why we found out and compiled 5 of our most interesting sex toy stats to share with you in the below video. We hope you find it as fascinating as we do.

It's a well known fact that Lovehoney customers are the best around, and I love sharing with you the nice comments our team receive daily, as well as the occasional hilarious drawings we get in the post.
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!
The first Hot Octopuss PULSE guybrator received rave reviews, and now there are two new and improved versions to try!
That's right: Two great penis pleasure products with unlimited potential. The original Hot Octopuss PULSE has already enhanced countless sex lives, but PULSE II DUO takes your pleasure to the next level by adding a second motor for the female partner with its own remote control to the mix.
Don't take my word for it. Here's just one of the positive customers reviews so far:
"It's hard to describe the toy as it's like nothing I've tried. Once it's in the right spot, there is no need to do anything apart from enjoy. It's so good, simple and effortless, it almost feels like you're cheating for the first few uses."- SomeGuy, Lovehoney customer

We love reading your product reviews, and every month we choose our favorite to win a $150 Lovehoney voucher. Everyone who submitted a product review, whether positive or negative, during February was eligible to win, and this month's prize goes to Greenwine for their review of the Lovehoney Adore Me Lace & Microfiber Chemise Set.
Greenwine described the fit, feel and quality of this lingerie set perfectly, while offering constructive feedback on how it could be even better:
"Teamed with some semi-opaque black lace-top stockings, simple sheer black knickers and a pair of pretty red suede shoes, let's just say hubby had a VERY happy homecoming (and so did I!)"
"One potential improvement - add another pair of loops so the chemise can take six suspender straps. But that's maybe an unfair criticism - this is pretty, sexy, curvaceously flattering and wild-romance-inducing!"
This month's erotic novel explores Jess and Ellis's relationship as they navigate seduction and pleasure with some fun thrown in. Follow timid Jess Lockhart as she flirts with danger and her billionaire boss Ellis McKenna.
He's handsome with a troubled past, and she's shy and inexperienced, but their sexual chemistry can't be denied.
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
The track listing for the Fifty Shades of Grey motion picture soundtrack has us indulging in these sexy music videos. We're taking in all the eye candy in anticipation for the film. Check out our first two favorites here and here.
This week's track and video could be the sexiest yet: It's "Earned It" by The Weeknd. This slightly NSFW video includes the lovely Dakota Johnson suspended in rope, not to mention the seductive lingerie worn by the dancing ladies. Inspired once again I've linked choice picks from the Official Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Collection below.
Revolutionary and unique are words that get thrown around a lot in the sex toy world, but sometimes a product comes along that embodies these revolutionary ideals with brand new methods of stimulation. The Womanizer USB Clitoral Stimulator does just that, using suction for clitoral stimulation like never before.
Our review of the month for January describes the revolution of a Womanizer orgasm:
"I really think this device should be investigated by sexual therapists for people who have difficulty achieving orgasm. It seems to me a game changer. Also worth noting that since I have been using it, I feel an overall effect of heightened sexual awareness." Read the full review by BBWinch here.
