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 asexy 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!
Did you know that Lovehoney has developed some of the most coveted pleasure products available on the market?
From sex toys developed by our in-house sexperts Tracey Cox and Annabelle Knight, to official collections inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey and the queen of pin-up Bettie Page, we've been busy making some of the most popular sexy products around.
In fact, our Fifty Shades of Grey Official Pleasure Collection just won Soft Bondage Line of the Year at the annual XBiz awards - hoorah!
Read on to see 10 of our very favorite sex toys, lingerie, and bondage items created right here at Lovehoney.
The luxe Bettie Page Picture This Spanking Bat is beautifully designed and features 2 broad spanking surfaces, an ergonomic handle complete with a wrist strap and is adorned with a classic black and white photo of Bettie Page in a cheeky pose.
"The bat itself is beautiful. The photo side is harder, and the picture quality is immaculate. The quilted side is very soft to the touch. I love the shape and the "Bettie Page" ribbon, which keeps your grip of the bat more secure in use, giving you more control." - LibraLover, Lovehoney customer

December has arrived and our excitement for Christmas is at an uncontrollable level!
In the spirit of giving, we have decided to launch a massive Advent Calendar Giveaway with a new prize every day.

This time around, we're giving you, our glorious customers, the chance to win 24 of our best selling products over the course of the month.
All you have to do is follow us on Twitter @Lovehoney_com and retweet our Advent Calendar tweets each day.
We will be giving away a different prize every day to one lucky person, so make sure you keep your eyes on our Twitter. Good luck and Merry XXXmas!
We would like to invite you along on a journey down the rabbit-hole to find out the ins and out of who's really buying sex toys, plus the averages and stats of what (and how much) they're buying!
Who better to take a look at and analyze the sheer volume of Lovehoney sales data but the very talented Ideas Detective himself, Jon Millward - the man who brought us: Deep Inside: A Study Of 10,000 Porn Stars And Their Careers and Dirty Words: A Probing Analysis of 5000 Call Girl Reviews.
Jon studied 1 million Lovehoney orders, minus any personal distinguishing details like last name, address or zip codes. He then added up all the liters and meters and created a gorgeous in-depth infographic to delight our imaginations and boggle our minds.
Read on for the top revelations from his study, or read the full (53 page!) report over on Jon's blog.
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 email@example.com.
Read on for a closer look at The Annabelle Knight Collection:
You may or may not have noticed that on Lovehoney's contact page, among the reasons for contacting us including "Question about a product" and "Where's my order?", there's one option you can select that says: "I want to say something nice".
Even if you did notice, you may not know what clicking that heading does. Well, when you decide to say something nice, your email gets forwarded to the entire company - and it never fails to make the Lovehoney staff smile when positive customer feedback appears in our email inboxes.
Although we receive nice thoughts from all over the world, lately a lot of this feedback has been coming from the states, from folks who have seen what life is like at Lovehoney HQ from watching Frisky Business on Netflix.
We love hearing from you, so we decided to share some of the most recent happy feedback we've received:
At Lovehoney, we strive to offer the very best when it comes to both our selection of sex toys and lingerie and our customer service too. Our mantra has always been "We're not happy unless you're happy!"
For twelve years that has remained our main goal, and now with the launch of Lovehoney Australia, Lovehoney.de (Germany) and Lovehoney.fr (France, coming soon!), our customers are spread all over the world. International websites and worldwide access means we're serving even more customers too. With this growth comes responsibility and we often ask ourselves: how can we make our customer's experience even more outstanding?
This past November, we opened a second Customer Care office in sunny Brisbane, Australia. Increasing our staff as well as having new customer service agents working in a complementary time zone means we are available to help during everyone's waking hours, faster than ever before.
We've had 24 hour service during the week since November, but starting just last week Lovehoney extended our customer care availability to provide live help 24 hours a day all 7 days of the week! That's right - all day every day, even weekends, our advisors are ready to answer your calls, help you out via live chat, and reply to your emails.
We love having the opportunity to help you find your sexual happiness, whenever you need us. There's no such thing as a bad time to call. So don't be shy, let us know: How can we help you?
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.
This week I'm taking a look at how to add more kinky goodness to your life.
BDSM play isn't going away anytime soon, life-long players and 24/7 life-stylers are intent on keeping their sex lives as kinky as ever. But could indulging your dark side keep you smart and content in your relationship?
DOMINIX is Lovehoney's new brand of luxury leather bondage gear and accessories for serious restraint and impact play, and we're giving you the chance to try out some of the most exciting products from the range.
Enter now with just a comment below for a chance to win this super-kinky set: DOMINIX Deluxe Adjustable Leather Cock Ring with O-Ring and DOMINIX Deluxe Leather Handle Chain Leash. Giveaway ends February 24th.
Read on for more information and some kinky news from around the web…
Too kinky to talk about, too extreme to shop for and definitely a private indulgence, yet the majority of couples have tried it. So what is it we're trying to keep so secret?
Well, the answer is bondage play. Even with well-known BDSM pioneers like Bettie Page and Irving Klaw blazing the trail, it's remained a taboo topic for decades.
The good news is opinions have begun to change. Books like Fifty Shades of Grey have made tie-and-tease play accessible to a wider audience and enabled even more couples to fulfill their bondage fantasies.
Nowadays there's a huge choice of products available for testing the sub/Dom domain, but what about products for those who want to take their BDSM play to the next level?
We're excited to announce that Lovehoney have just launched DOMINIX, the deluxe range of bondage equipment suitable for all your professional and recreational S&M requirements!
Read on to find out what makes this collection so luxurious, and why you should be shopping right now!
