Bondage and BDSM are nothing new for many of us, thanks to Bettie Page paving the way in the 50s and Fifty Shades of Grey creating the most recent cultural boom.

The polar vortex has come and gone, and then come back again. There's no better time than right now to warm up and get ready for the next cold of the season.
I recommend lighting ALL the massage candles, warming up some Hot Rocks and/or a Hot Heart Massager, add your favorite glass dildo (maybe something from the new Ceramix line) and sip on a warm beverage while you enjoy time snuggled up indoors.
Warming lubricants are another sexy way to turn up the heat when the cold is creeping in.
Plus, to help you heat things up we're giving away a set of the relaxing Hot Massage Rocks and Hot Heart Massager pictured here. Comment before January 31st to enter to win and keep you warm and relaxed through the cold.
Read on for more ways to keep things hot, inside and outside the bedroom.
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 164,000 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.
Review of the Month
Without further ado, this month we've chosen Lovehoney customer Tectonic Tiger as winner, with a fantastic review of the Lovehoney Magic Cock Rings (6 Pack). We loved that his review was both informative and entertaining:
"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."

This month's winner reviewed the Bedtime 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug and included helpful information for those new to anal play, which we always appreciate.
"I'm happy to report, however, that with a little lube it slides right in, and sits fairly comfortably, even for a complete novice like myself. The feeling of having something stuck up there was, obviously, a little strange, but the overall shape and feel of the toy seems perfectly designed to acclimatize you to it without any undue discomfort."

It's time to announce the Review of the Month for October - and what a month it was! With plenty of new products and customer favourites being reviewed, it was tough to choose just one winner.
However, we're delighted to award user Cornish89 $150 to spend at Lovehoney.com. Her review of the new Sqweel Go USB Rechargeable Oral Sex Simulator was both interesting and informative.
While she started out as a sceptic, the fantastic Sqweel Go soon changed her mind.
"I was so excited to try out this toy as I love receiving oral sex but I'm one of those women who normally takes a long time to orgasm. My partner was as excited as me I think as he was hoping it meant he wouldn't get repetitive strain injury in his tongue!" Read the entire review by Cornish89.
