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.

Wedding season is in full swing. I know because my sister just got married last week! My biggest wish for my sister and brother-in-law is a long and happy life together.
I read articles about happy relationships and happy marriages all the time, but happiness can mean something different for each couple.
On these momentous occasions we might wonder: "What can newly married couples do to ensure successful relationships?" "How can they keep Monogamy fun and exciting?" And for the couple's friends: "Is giving sexy wedding gifts a good idea or off limits?"
I bet you know someone who's getting married this summer too! More than a third of couples choose the summer as the time to tie the knot.
As we watch our happily coupled friends say "I do" we want all the best things for them; happy households, growing families, and long fulfilling lives together. Keep reading to learn more about what it takes to make it work and let's see what happens next…

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!
