Sex Toys: A Discussion | Lovehoney Love Egg Vibrator Review

Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog! Today I’ll be talking about something a little more delicate, and adult – sex toys. It’s not often that I see many blogs or vlogs around sex, and that is fine. People should only make content that they enjoy making and are comfortable with, and most people I follow may not feel like making this sort of content.

However, I’m a strong believer in openly talking and educating myself on all aspects of sex. That may be sex with another person, different kinks and dynamics of sex, or pleasing yourself. The more we educate ourselves, the less intimidating it all will be, and there is a better chance of having a better time. Also, the more we openly talk about sex in a safe environment, the less judged we will feel about our likes and dislikes, and, again, we would have a better experience overall.

The lovely people at Lovehoney have send me a sex toy of theirs to review – the Remote Control Love Egg Vibrator. Today I’ll be talking you through this sex toy, whilst talking about the benefits of sex toys in general.

When we think of sex toys, the most common ones that spring to mind are vibrators or dildos. And these are great for spicing up your alone time (it can get so samey, right?). But you can also get toys that can equally improve your sex life with your partner!

Again, you have more common ones like handcuffs, or strap-ons, but ones that really intrigue me are vibrating love eggs. I’ve been looking at these for a while but never plucked up the courage to buy one. When Lovehoney approached me and asked me to write about one of their sex toys, I was so excited that a great brand such as themselves wanted to work with me! I jumped at the chance and chose this love egg.

What I was intrigued by the most is the element of surprise this toy brings, and I guess vulnerability may be the wrong word, but also the submissive elements, too.

The idea of the love egg is that you insert the toy into the vagina (don’t worry, there’s a pull cord to get it back out, not unlike a tampon!) and give the remote to your partner. The remote controls whether the toy is vibrating or not, and at what rhythm and speeds. It has 3 different speeds, and 7 rhythm patterns, which I think is a nice variety. It is then up to your partner how and when to use it.

You could use it in the bedroom for some simple, hands-free fun, or be more adventurous and let them control it while you’re doing your own thing around the house. It has a 10 metre range, so you could be doing pieces around the house while your partner watches the TV. Or it can be used while you’re making the dinner to try and throw off your concentration.

While I did say there was an element of surprise, it isn’t wholly spontaneous as you do have to prepare yourself and give your partner the remote before it does happen. But then it is a suspenseful waiting game to see when they’re going to make the first move – and I love that! I think that this love egg is a new and exciting method of foreplay, or even just a stand alone bit of fun to introduce to your relationship.

The part I was most concerned about was the actual insertion of the egg. It slips in perfectly, and it doesn’t feel strange at all. Taking the egg out is a bit of an ordeal, I won’t lie! Because the entire egg is encapsulated within your vagina, it is a bit more difficult to pull it back out compared to a dildo. Don’t panic, however, as it will come out – it just takes a bit of effort compared to insertion. It does feel a little strange coming out, as well, but it isn’t at all sore!

Sex toys are not essential to have a good sex life, nor are they for everyone or every relationship, but for myself and a lot of other people, they are a great to (like I keep saying) spice things up in the bedroom. It wasn’t until this past year that I had tried sex toys for the first time. I feel it was definitely something I had missed out on for the last few years! Maybe not couples toys, but I had definitely missed out on solo toys.

Now I’m in a happy and comfortable relationship, exploring couples toys is a lot of fun. Even finding solo toys that we can enjoy together is great!

Sex toys can definitely add a new spark to a relationship, but they can also help you find yourself. What I mean by that is, there are a lot of things I never knew I would enjoy until I decided to try them out anyway. That includes sex toys, as I never expected to find particular ones as interesting as I do now!

I think exploring new things, whether I have ended up enjoying them or come away having no opinion at all, has really opened up my mind. I’m more open, less judgemental, and more accepting of different people and their different likes. And this goes in all aspects of life, not just sex/sexuality.

It has also made me more confident to talk about sex, and my likes and dislikes in sex (no matter how crazy I might think they are) with my partner. Experimenting and educating ourselves gives us the confidence we need to take control of our sex lives and really enjoy it. After all, isn’t that the whole point?

If you’re looking for ways to bring something new into your relationship, I would recommend the vibrating love egg. It’s not too wild for the tamer couple, but that bit more exciting than your basic sex toys. If you’re not in a relationship, treat yourself and check out what else Lovehoney has in store for you!


Thank you very much for reading my chatty sex toy thoughts and Love Egg Vibrator review, and thank you so much to Lovehoney for collaborating with me, today!

I’d like to say before I end this blog post that I know sex toys are not for every one, and that not using one doesn’t make your sex life any less good or you any less confidence within yourself. These are merely my thoughts based on my own experience.

What are your thoughts about sex toys and talking more openly about sex in general? Have you tried anything from Lovehoney before? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

      Thank you so much, Ellie! I tried to make it quite a light and easy read considering the topic, I’m glad it came across that way 😜 it definitely was fun and I’m glad I tried it out, I think it’s more of a once in a while activity, though! Not something you would want to do on the regular as it does leave you feeling a bit (sounds gross) raw from the vibrations, afterwards 😂 x

    Thanks for sharing, they actually just covered a bit about the female orgasm in the Netflix show Explained. Appreciate you being brave enough to post about it, it shouldn’t be taboo lol. Have you ever been to a pure romance party?

    Oooh this reminds me of that seen from The Ugly Truth when she wears the vibrating panties and he’s got the controls. Maybe being in a restaurant isn’t the best place but i do love the idea of just going about your day at home and your partner having the control.

    Also massive kudos to you for speaking about this. If you don’t already read evegreenow.com then I defo recommend as she often talks about sex and sex toys!

      I’ve never seen that, I’ll have to look it up! Yes haha I think that would be a bit too risky and out there for me, but I understand that it is some people’s thing and that’s cool for them. It’s definitely a lot of fun around the house!

      Thank you so much, Hannah, that means a lot 💖 I haven’t heard of her before, but I’m definitely going to check her out! Thank you for the recommendation ☺️

    i have so much respect for you talking about a topic that not many people talk about. it takes so much courage to put yourself and part of you sex life out there. i agree more people myself included need to be more comfortable with talking about sex. while i’m still a virgin and plan to wait till marriage, this would defenitly be a fun way to spice things up! again, big props to you for sharing this. it was a great post! xxx

      Thank you, Mich, that means a lot 💗 I appreciate your honesty and your decision, that’s really cool of you to wait until you’re married! I think talking about it and educating yourself is a great way to prepare yourself, so you know that you are 100% ready when the time comes ☺️

    So cool to see a review on a sex toy!
    I can imagine the conversation you had with your partner when you received the package: “honeyyy I got a PR package!” haha 🙂
    Good job on the review, it’s excellent.

      It does make a bit of noise! It’s definitely noticeable that something is vibrating, and unless you were in a loud place, it would be obvious that something was going on 😜 very interesting though, I’m glad I tried it out!

  7. August 30, 2018 / 8:51 pm

    This is such an in-depth and honest review! I love the sound of this and the suspense that it brings, its kind of like something from 50 shades haha!

    I enjoyed reading this, Beka smashing those blog posts as usual, keep up the amazing work, girl! I don’t get why people are so shy talking about sex toys, I use LoveHoney and love it, but never tried the Love Eggs. You’ve convinced me now to give them a go, so I’ve added them to my wish list xx

      Thank you so much, you’re so sweet! I’m glad you enjoyed this 💗 I’m hoping since sex is becoming a more open topic for women, that sex toys will follow as well! Lovehoney is great, I love their stuff, too! That’s awesome, I hope you enjoy it ☺️

    I agree with you – it is important to educate ourselves and as long as we’re being safe, it’s game on. I haven’t seen the eggs before but it’s interesting to see how it looks and works. They don’t mess around with the different settings. Ok, with the direction technology is moving with IoT, I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes controllable through an app. Thanks for being transparent and sharing your thoughts!

      Thank you, I’m glad you do! I was a bit nervous to put this post up! I’m sure that there are ones out there that are more expensive, and can be controlled by an app. There MUST be 😂 thank you for reading!

    Really great review and like the light hearted style. Sex should not be a taboo but we all do seem to get a bit embarrassed by it at times.

    There is also so much evidence around sex and mental health and relationship strength that have benefits.

    Male sex toys also seem to attract a lot embarrassment for guys as well but maybe that is just fear or pride.

      Thank you so much! Definitely there is a lot of embarrassment around it, especially for guys like you said. Hopefully if we create more of an open and understanding conversation, that will eventually stop being the case!

      Thank you for reading ☺️
