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 latest headlines suggest American breasts are growing at a rapid rate!

Review of the Month
This month's winner is David1986 with a fantastic review of the TENGA 3D Module Male Masturbator. Comparing the high-tech stroker with the bestselling TENGA eggs, David says:
"My husband was very keen to try these (we have both the Module and the Pile) and they did not disappoint. They don't look like a sex toy, in fact when packaged, they almost look like works of modern art - you could happily leave them on the bedside and no one would be any the wiser."

Review of the Month
This month's winner is HappilyExperimenting with her review of the Lelo Mia 2 USB Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator. We love her comparisons with the original Lelo Mia vibrator and relatable advice.
"I purchased the black Mia 2 and was as equally impressed by the smooth plastic as I was by my original Mia; the quality of the vibe is outstanding especially now you can fully submerse it in water when you clean it - amongst other things! "
"The Lelo Mia 2 is couple-friendly and would make a great first toy for women with partners as it is not intimidating at all. The lipstick-shaped vibe will go unnoticed in hand luggage for you travelling girls out there and it is fully lockable for the trip to Australia."
