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.
International sex toy manufacturer Lovehoney joined forces with its official Chinese distributor Aura for its first ever exhibition at China Adult Care Expo 2016 in Shanghai.
Lovehoney’s Co-founder Neal Slateford and Business Development Executive Ilona Laboviciute were on hand to answer questions about their exciting brands and showcase new products from Fifty Shades of Grey.
Laboviciute said: “The show was a great way to make a splash in the Asian market and to raise the profile of Lovehoney and its brilliant brands in that part of the world.
“Demand is growing as the Asian market is opening up to sex toys and we’re excited to be part of this transition.
“It was the first time we’d had the pleasure of working alongside our Chinese distributor Aura and we are looking forward to a very successful year ahead.”
Representing team Aura were Chapmond Law (Company Director), Natalie Law (Marketing and Sales Manager) and Giny Ho (Marketing and Sales Coordinator).
Lovehoney’s first key product of 2016 has sold out instantly thanks to a mass of mainstream press coverage.
The Sqweel XT for Men was launched at the ANME Founders Show in January where it sold over 2,000 units and orders have continued to soar ever since.
Lovehoney’s General Sales Manager Jim Primrose said: “We’re unable to keep the Sqweel XT on shelves, such is the level of orders at the moment.
“Our trade customers are having to pre-order more stock, which will be arriving very soon.”
The Sqweel XT has received a mainstream media blitz in the weeks following its launch.
Europe's biggest free newspaper, Metro, told its four million daily readers that it was ‘just the job’ for male pleasure while the UK’s most popular newspaper, The Sun, raved to readers with the jokey headline ‘Who needs a girlfriend?’.
The Queen has honoured Britain’s biggest online sex toy retailer with a top award.
Lovehoney has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade for outstanding growth in overseas sales over the last three years.
Owners Richard Longhurst and Neal Slateford will be attending a reception held by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on July 14.
They received the award 14 years to the day from when they started selling sex toys online from Richard’s bedroom in Bath. Now Lovehoney has a turnover of £60 million and employs more than 250 people all over the world.
The award - described as ‘the highest accolade for business success’ - allows Lovehoney to use The Queen’s Award emblem in advertising, marketing and on packaging for a period of five years as a symbol of quality and success.
