• Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator

    Lovehoney has come top in Good Housekeeping magazine’s prestigious survey to find the world’s best sex toy.

    The Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator was voted best out of 25 vibrators from various international manufacturers which were tried and tested by a panel of 270 women.

    It got an overall score of 74/100 and was a hit with nine out of the ten women who tried it.

    Good Housekeeping said: “It has a great range of speeds and pulses and is surprisingly quiet for the intense sensations achieved.”

    A Good Housekeeping survey found that 46% of women were more likely to have an orgasm with their vibrator, while 44% found it easier to have an orgasm and 24% said they were more sexually satisfied after using a vibrator.

    Almost one in five (18%) had more sex than before while using vibrators and 13% said their use made them more confident in asking for what they want in bed.
