LoveHoney is a global sexuality brand and pleasure company started in 2002 by Neal Slateford and Richard Longhurst, intending to uplift the sexuality industry and bring sexual happiness to everyone.
The portion of the product line we got to try out absolutely lives up to that goal of fun discovery and displays Lovehoney’s array of toys, accessories, and lingerie!
Bonny Hall, Lovehoney’s first employee and now Global Product Director, explains that the UK-based company works with brands and businesses worldwide to curate high-quality items and make them accessible to the general public, as well as creating their own products.
The Get Closer Campaign is a curation of LoveHoney and Halls’ work, with other brands’ products and their own in-house created toys and lingerie, featuring inclusive sizing and their exclusive Fifty Shades of Grey Collection.
Hall explains that the company’s love of collaboration led to the start and expansion of the brands’ work with E.L. James, the author of Fifty Shades of Grey. Collaborations happen to be Hall’s favorite part of her job.
While I gave most of the Fifty Shades products a 3.5 out of 5 stars rating, that by no means implies they aren’t fantastic products.
Suppose you’re a fan of the Fifty Shades of Grey books and movies. In that case, the paddle, flogger, and blindfold could be fantastic products for followers of the franchise (and excellent starting points if you’re new to BDSM). You can listen to the video review for more about my ratings!
This is one of the beautiful things about the Get Closer line; A product that’s a 3 out of 5 for me could be a 10 out of 5 for you!
Hall shares this sentiment, saying, “Not every product is going to be perfect for everyone, so we don’t expect 100% 5-star reviews. If you see that on a site, you know something is wrong.”
In fact, this is something that makes LoveHoney a truly unique company; They take great care in obtaining customer feedback and reviews and then work to implement changes immediately.
One product I didn’t want to make any changes to out of the array of products I received was the LoveHoney Deluxe Rechargeable Mini Massage Wand Vibrator! I’m seriously obsessed with it and want to buy one for every human I know.
This product was actually my favorite out of the box I received, and, right along with the theme of discovery, I thought it would be my least favorite, showcasing one of LoveHoney’s goals, to promote safe exploration!
