We received so many great user-uploaded reviews in September that it was hard work picking just one winner for our Review of the Month competition.
However, Lovehoney customer rose hip's informative review of the Blush Lux Femina Glass and SIlicone Kegel Exercisors stood out, and so we're pleased to give her the top prize of $150 to spend at Lovehoney.com.
By comparing the kegel exercisors to other jiggle balls in her collection and describing the best way to use them, we think her review makes great reading for anyone looking for intermediate Ben Wa balls.
She says: "Even more points for the quality of design and materials. The silicone is smooth, soft and lovely to touch. The seam is so faint that a modern-day story teller could forego small vegetables and ask his princess to prove her delicate nature by noticing it or the tiny dimple in the glass."

This month's winner reviewed the Pin Ups Betty Bombshell Balm in Cherry. We loved her enthusiasm and helpful tips about using the orgasm balm to get in the mood.
She notes: "I wasn't expecting this balm to do much, what with my one week refractory period and all. I was wrong. It instantly tingled on application, and a warmth spread through the area which made me instantly aroused. Blood was flowing to the area, my clit was throbbing... I was getting horny, whether my stupid brain chemistry liked it or not!"

The first time I bought a sex toy was in my college dorm room by the glow of my computer monitor, and somehow, even that intimidated me.
The site I shopped at was splashed with images of naked women whose bodies looked nothing like my own posed in ways that screamed "I'm amazing in bed!!"
I was a virgin with body-confidence issues who had never had an orgasm.
I went looking for a vibrator to help with the overwhelming feeling that sex was something that belonged to other people, sexier people, and this site just ended up reinforcing that feeling.
I grabbed the cheapest toy (all the while worrying that this site was going to sell my credit card number - it was a dodgy place!) I could find and got the heck out of there...

The Lovehoney Flash USB Vibe is truly one of a kind. This vibe is compact and discreet and charges easily via USB, on your computer, with a wall adaptor or in the car.
Convenient and waterproof, this is what the future of vibrator technology looks like and it's here now. This vibe can go anywhere and fits discreetly in a purse, toy bag or even my eyeglass case.
On Lovehoney.com the Flash has been receiving high rated reviews from satisfied customers. With a total of 9 out of 10 stars so far. Bloggers and sex toy reviewers have also weighed in on this interesting little vibe, and you may be surprised by what they have to say.
Violet Blue, bestselling erotica author and noted sex blogger, knows a thing or two about vibrators. She took Flash along on some of her recent adventures:
"My trusty, quiet and discreet little Flash has kept me smiling from hacking conferences in Malaysia to romantic staycations with my sweetie home in San Francisco. I won't travel without it. It's seriously the tech-savvy girl's best friend..."
