How would you like to make the world a (sexually) happier place, and win big money in the process?

Lovehoney's just-launched Design a Sex Toy competition is giving you the chance to spread the love and earn some serious cash.

Simply send us your idea for a brand new sex toy and you could see it made by Lovehoney and sold globally, as well as winning up to $4,500 in prize money and earning over $150,000 in royalties!

We'll be cherry-picking the finest design from each of the three contest categories: Sex Toys for Men, Sex Toys for Women and Sex Toys for Couples. The winner of each category will receive $1,500 - what's more, the entry we love most will also win the $3,000 Judges' Pick prize.

On the judging panel we have founder of leading sex toy companies Lelo and Tickler Erik Kalen, Lovehoney's own head buyer Bonny Hall, sex toy category manager Alice Little and, last but not least, E L James, author of the bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

Think you've got what it takes to create the sex toy industry's next big thing? Then show us: scribble your design on a napkin, model it with Play-Doh or use a computer graphics program - whatever works for you. Don't be shy - no idea is a silly idea! Check out our Top Tips page for handy hints from our esteemed judges.

Need a little inspiration? A previous winner, Trevor Murphy from Ireland, has earned over $150,000 to date in royalties for his design, the Sqweel Oral Sex Simulator. Now the world's best selling oral sex toy, the Sqweel has changed Trevor's life, not to mention the sex lives of many thousands of people worldwide.

So channel your inner sexpert and submit your idea before September 16th for your chance to create the next must-have in the world of sex toys.

Best of luck!
