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.
Want to learn more cool facts about sex toys? Check out Down the Rabbit Hole: It's the largest study of sex toy sales ever (over 1 million) and it happened when we invited self-styled Ideas Detective Jon Millward to analyse the sales data of the largest online sex toy retailer in the UK (that's us!)

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!
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!"
Did you know Lovehoney has the biggest online sex toy review database in the world? With 122,000 genuine customer product reviews, you can see what other people thought before you purchase. Plus, every month we choose the best new user-uploaded review to receive $150 to spend at Lovehoney.
Our latest winner is Sapiosexual, who submitted a great review offering superb advice to first time corset shoppers. We loved how she compared the affordable Classic Satin Underbust Steel Boned Corset with custom made corsetry.
"It's one of the cheapest corsets you can get, so I made sure I read all the reviews before buying it. It's the fourth corset I've owned, so I knew what had and hadn't worked with my previous ones. I must say, for such a cheap corset, it seems pretty good. The satin feels lovely and the build appears to be pretty sturdy."
Lovehoney's resident sexpert Annabelle Knight will be spreading her knowledge on all things sex, relationships and kink with NOW magazine readers.
Starting this week, our Annabelle is the new Sex and Relationship Expert for British magazine "NOW", and we couldn't be happier!
You'll recognise Annabelle from presenting many of our sex advice and product videos on LovehoneyTV.
She also had a starring role in the recent Lovehoney documentary "Frisky Business" which followed the production of her exclusive range of sex toys. The Annabelle Knight Collection comprises of four vibrators designed with female pleasure in mind.
Annabelle is clearly looking forward to tackling the nation's sex and relationship issues: "I'm so excited to be working with Now Magazine, it's a fabulous opportunity and one I couldn't be happier about! I'm sure all my years at Lovehoney will definitely come in handy!"
The "Ask Annabelle" feature will run every week and you'll see Annabelle tackle sex questions from readers all over the country. If you want to get involved, email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nothing says sleek, stylish and modern like shiny silverware - and that includes sex toys, too! The njoy Pure Plug Stainless Steel Butt Plug demonstrates this perfectly, and we love how it blends in with the rest of the silverware in this shot.

How did everyone find time to submit such fantastic reviews over the holidays?! In December we saw a huge amount of reviews come in to Lovehoney.com, adding to the 122,000 user-uploaded reviews already available to read.
As usual, we've chosen our favorite to win $150 to spend at Lovehoney, and have also selected some runners-up to get Oh! Points to spend or save.
"Unlike many (most) other cock rings, they do not have a cylindrical profile that can feel as though it is 'digging in'. Instead they are flat on the inside, which spreads the pressure over a larger area, making them far more comfortable to wear. Their soft material conforms to your shape perfectly and their supreme stretchability will allow them to fit a wide range of sizes."
