• Lovehoney Motorhead Collection

    Lovehoney has received a top licensing award for its Motörhead Official Pleasure Collection.

    The sex toy manufacturer beat off stiff competition for the title of Best Health and Beauty Licensee at the 2016 LIMA Licensing Awards, which took place in Las Vegas this week.

    LIMA, short for The International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association, is the leading trade organisation for the global licensing industry.

    Lovehoney’s co-founder Neal Slateford said: “We’re thrilled to have won such a prestigious award in the world of licensing.”

    “It’s the second year in a row that Lovehoney has won a LIMA Award, and further proof that we are the go-to people for brands looking to break into the pleasure product market.”

    The Motörhead Official Pleasure Collection was up against the likes of Pearl World’s Paris Hilton Cosmetic Collection and Hall & Associates Limited’s Shopkins hair accessories line.

    Laura Wood and Jim Primrose ETO Awards

    Lovehoney has been named Best Online Retailer at the 2016 ETO Awards.

    ETO, short for Erotic Trade Only, is one of the world’s leading adult industry magazines based in the UK.

    The sex toy company fought off stiff competition from Bondara, sextoys.co.uk, Ann Summers and Uberkinky.

    The Lovehoney team were at the glamourous event to pick up the award, which was voted for by members of the adult trade industry.

    Lovehoney Sex Toy Buyer Flavie Polaine said: "It’s an honour to be named Online Retailer of the Year.

    “We're immensely proud of Lovehoney's recent successes and we're flattered that ETO and its readers have recognised them as well.

    "The last year has been a very exciting one."

    The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 2016

    Leading online sex toy retailer Lovehoney has been ranked at number 51 in the seventh annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.

    The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain's mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over the last two years of available accounts.

    Lovehoney is ranked at number 51 nationally and number 6 for the South West region after overseas sales grew 60% pa to £12.1m over the last two years.

    The Bath-based business has launched websites in the US, Australia, France, Germany, the EU and most recently, Canada and has benefited from the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, for which it holds the worldwide license for pleasure products.

    Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said: “We’re thrilled to have made the Sunday Times’ top 200 fastest growing international companies for a second year running.

    “It’s another great boost for the company after receiving a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade earlier in the year.

    “Lovehoney is now firmly established as the leading global retailer of sexual wellbeing products.”

    Companies also featured in this year’s league table include the likes of Mountain Warehouse, Skyscanner and Missguided.

    Lovehoney Heart

    Award-winning sex toy manufacturer and retailer Lovehoney has just launched a brand new website for its Canadian customers.

    Canucks can now enjoy all of the same great deals they were able to get from the retailer's US site, Lovehoney.com, tailored to them with Canadian dollars and flavoured (not flavored) lubricants.

    Lovehoney.ca will offer customers free delivery with orders over $49.99 and an impressive 365-day returns policy - a first for the Canadian adult industry.

    Lovehoney's co-owner Richard Longhurst said: "Canadians often get lumped together with their American neighbours when it comes to online retail. So we decided it was about time we offered our Canadian shoppers dedicated customer service and clarity when shopping - using the correct terms and currency."

    According to Canadian news site The Loop's annual Love and Sex Survey, 54% of kinky Canadians have tried some form of BDSM in the bedroom and 55% currently own a sex toy.
