1. StorErotica Award Lovehoney at ANME Show

      The team at Lovehoney are in high spirits after a successful exhibition at the ANME Founders Show in Los Angeles.

      The US adult trade show marked the launch of the sex toy manufacturer’s eagerly anticipated Official Motörhead Pleasure Collection, which consists of two bullets and two classic torpedo shaped vibes, all decorated with the band’s iconic logo and branding.

      ANME was also an opportunity to showcase the latest in Lovehoney’s line of official Fifty Shades of Grey pleasure products, The Playroom Kits, a six-piece range offering innovative and versatile restraints for the bedroom.

      The team were rushed off their feet talking to prospective distributors and retailers about the two exciting new ranges as well as the company’s other core brands, and feedback was extremely positive.

      Lovehoney Motorhead Collection

      Lovehoney has joined forces with legendary rock band Motörhead to launch an exclusive range of Motörhead branded pleasure products.

      Motörhead - The Official Pleasure Collection boasts four bullets and classic torpedo shaped vibes, all decorated with the band's iconic logo and branding - and delivers the sort of power and pleasure you'd expect from the 'loudest band on Earth'.

      Motörhead are one of the world's biggest rock bands, having released 21 studio albums and countless singles including the hits Ace of Spades and Overkill - after which the vibes are named.

      The deal was brokered by Global Merchandising Services, Inc. who represent Mötorhead exclusively for retail, tour and licensing. The range will be available to the public from 2nd September.

      "One of the songs on our debut album was called Vibrator so we had to have our own one day, right?!," said Motörhead singer Lemmy. "Apparently, it was worth the wait!"

      The Sunday Times International Track 200

      Leading online sex toy retailer Lovehoney has been ranked at number nine in the sixth 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 nine nationally and number one for the South West region after overseas sales grew 146% pa to £5.1m in 2014.

      Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford said: "This announcement is very exciting for us and we're thrilled to have ranked so highly.

      "Seeing Lovehoney grow so quickly overseas has been incredible and a very exciting journey for everyone involved.
