Ever since it was released last week, Pokémon GO has all but taken over the world.
From Lickitungs in the park, to Grimers in church and Squirtles in the convenience store, fans both young and old have been discovering the joys of Pokémon hunting in the real world, thanks to GPS technology and an incredibly addictive free-to-play app.
Released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original games (and boy, does that make me feel old), Pokémon GO has dominated the headlines, with people finding these weird and wonderful Pocket Monsters in the most bizarre places imaginable.
So given that we want Lovehoney to be the very best (like no one ever was) we set off into our sex toy warehouse to find out which Pokémon could be lurking among the toys.
That's exactly what we've done to select a winner for Review of The Month: a competition that rewards your raunchy writing skills with a $150 Lovehoney voucher.
Hot off the press this month and walking away with that sweet, sweet prize is one of our most regular reviewers, Shadow Collector, with her account of the Bondage Boutique Extreme Wrapped Rattan Cane. This community member is certainly steaming up her S&M antics, adding to the continuum theory of pain and pleasure. Whether pain is your pleasure or not, we "cane" certainly believe that this is hers.
"This beautifully simple cane was the toy that took my S&M playtime from lukewarm to Jalapeño hot. Every detail, from the flawlessly smooth plastic coating to the springy and unforgiving rattan shaft works seamlessly together to deliver delicious agony with minimum effort.” Read the full review here.
Congratulations, Shadow Collector, and enjoy your prize!
Incredibly popular in the 1980s and 1990s, teddies and bodysuits have recently seen a resurgence.
Fashion bloggers are tucking them into high-waisted shorts, celebs are flashing them on the red carpet, and tons of stores are once again stocking them on the shelves.
But while the fashion world is going crazy for teddies as outerwear, many of us are still reluctant to wear them as sexy lingerie - a fact that we found curious, as there are some truly stunning bedroom bodysuits out there.
We took to the forums to ask our customers about their reservations when it comes to the all-in-one, and some of the answers we received may surprise you…
Read on below to see the most common bodysuit dilemmas, and our top tips for how to find the perfect one piece for your body.
July 1st has arrived, and with it, the Canada Day celebrations!
That's right, it's time for parades, parties, and festivities galore, all marking the enactment of the Constitution Act that created Canada in 1867.
But the celebrations needn't stop at the front door. Make sure you and your lover are marking the holiday in a much more private (but equally exciting) way with this hand-picked selection of the finest red and white offerings from Lovehoney.
So, whether you're in need of a fun and colorful new toy, a sultry new boudoir outfit, or a bolder and brighter new addition to your bondage collection, we're sure to have just the thing…
For some of us, the words, ‘role play’ send a shiver of excitement down our spines; for others, it’s more a chill of fear that reminds us of uncomfortable team-building exercises.
But using role play in the bedroom is about much more than indulging your long-held and unspoken fantasy about that meter maid who once fined you.
By adopting a different persona, many people find it easier to open up and explore situations and practices that they would never normally broach, allowing them to experience greater fulfillment and also bringing them closer to their partner.
But how do you get into it without feeling a little, well, ridiculous? Well, just read on below to see not only how you can choose the scenario (and outfit) that's right for you, but how to fully enjoy your foray into the world of character play.

We've trawled the Lovehoney lingerie collections to find you the perfect undies for the under-5'4"s, as well as offering a few key Do's and Don'ts when it comes to getting the most from your nightwear.

Welcome to Men's Health Week: a whole week devoted to raising awareness of male health issues around the world.
But, guys, you'll be pleased to know it's not all about wheatgrass shots and multivitamins. There's a much more enjoyable way to improve your wellbeing:
Spanking the monkey, beating your meat, or jerk the gherkin - whatever you like to call it, masturbation has been proven time and again to have many health benefits that go far beyond a way to fill time between episodes of Game of Thrones.
Chances are, you won't need much persuading, but if you're looking to justify that jerk-off session, just read on for six awesome perks to pole-polishing you may not have considered before.
Suddenly, it's June, and not only is summer officially here, but so is the latest Review of the Month!
Taking the title (and $150 to spend at Lovehoney, too) are playful partners A Couple of Kinks, who seem to have spent all of May indoors testing toy after toy after toy - and there ain't nothing wrong with that.
"This vibrator actually blew me across the bed. Seriously. I went from one corner to the opposite. Yes, you did read the first line correctly. This toy actually made my body leap across the bed. We just so happen to have been recording ourselves, so we actually have video evidence of this, which was really hot to rewatch together (but more on that another time).” (You can read the full review here.)
So it's with some envy that we say congratulations to you both. We're sure you'll have plenty more to review soon.
Just as with the hair on our heads, eyebrows, and faces, pubic hairstyles come in a wide array of shapes and colours. Some people like it balder than a Congressman; some people like it neatly trimmed; and others prefer to follow the spirit of Woodstock, and let it run wild and free.
So, should you shave your short 'n' curlies? The truth is, there's no right or wrong answer to that question. Those who advocate for the full Hollywood (that is, to say, entirely bare) say that it feels cleaner, is less work for their sexual partners, and increases sensation.
The Full-Bush-Administration, however, would counter that pubic hair is there to protect your sensitive areas, makes you less prone to catching STIs, and also helps to retain libido-boosting pheromones that make you even more sexually appealing.
Many also find their partner's personal preference often influences their own choice, but when it comes down to it, the decision (and the razor) are entirely in your hands. If you are, however, in the staggering 92% of women and 83% of men who primp their pubes in some way, then just read on for our finest styling tips.
For years, it's been the way of the world that ladies have had a huge range of different bedroom lingerie and clothing to tease and titillate their lovers, whilst the gents have had to make do with a trusty pair of black boxers or designer briefs. Hardly fair, is it?

If you don't know where to start, we've come up with our top tips to help you choose the perfect briefs or boxers to keep him feeling sexy, happy, and confident in (and out) of the bedroom.
