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!"

I once had a friend tell me that her grandmother used to say that if she touched herself in her "special lady area" her hand would fall off.
"I mean, they should be promoting masturbation, not bashing it," my pal said. "It’s not like my fingers are going to get me knocked up!"
I couldn’t agree more. In fact, there are a whole lot of great reasons to get it on with yourself. Here are 10 of my top picks.

The first time I bought a sex toy was in my college dorm room by the glow of my computer monitor, and somehow, even that intimidated me.
The site I shopped at was splashed with images of naked women whose bodies looked nothing like my own posed in ways that screamed "I'm amazing in bed!!"
I was a virgin with body-confidence issues who had never had an orgasm.
I went looking for a vibrator to help with the overwhelming feeling that sex was something that belonged to other people, sexier people, and this site just ended up reinforcing that feeling.
I grabbed the cheapest toy (all the while worrying that this site was going to sell my credit card number - it was a dodgy place!) I could find and got the heck out of there…

The latest headlines suggest American breasts are growing at a rapid rate!
"Customer surveys and sales data from lingerie company Intimacy have revealed the average American bra size has grown from 34B in 1983 to 34DD in 2013." - [Lingerie Insight]
That's quite a large increase!
What does this mean for those of us with larger bustlines? Will we see more options for bras in larger sizes? We have some lovely options here at Lovehoney, but there's always room for more.
As breast sizes fluctuate, our ideas about breasts are changing as well. Could studies suggesting looking at boobs has secret health benefits be too good to be true? We all know breasts of any size do a lot more than just look good.
Since it can be difficult to find cute bras for the larger bust, we're giving you the chance to win a sexy lingerie set right now! Comment here to enter to win your very own BlueBella Madison Eyelash and Satin Bra (in sizes 32B to 40G) and Satin Panty Set before August 31st. Learn more from the boobilcious headlines below.
