Welcome to the Lovehoney Forum. Please Read before getting started!

Hello and Welcome to the Lovehoney Forum!

This is a friendly place where adults can discuss all things sex and sex toys with like-minded people (without perv alarms going off). If you’re looking for things like sex toy recommendations, advice on how to spice up your love life, sexy lingerie tips, or some new bondage tricks, then you’re definitely in the right place. :+1:

And it’s not all sex, sex toys and lingerie. We also have a Games section*, and members-only Photo topics, as well as general chat, and even a category for Testers.

But we cannot stress this enough, the Lovehoney Forum is not a site for dating, arranging hook-ups, exchanging flirty messages, or posting graphic images.

Before you get stuck in please read our Lovehoney Forum Rules

I’m @Lovehoney_Brenna, and I’m the main forum moderator. There are other staff members who post to the boards too, and you can spot them easily as they also have ‘Lovehoney_’ tagged in front of their usernames.

There’s a handy forum how-to below that covers most of the forum basics, and you can find a bit more information (when you’re ready) in the Forum Help links too.

:lovehoney_heart: To download the forum app to your phone open your browser menu on a forum page and tap ‘install app’.

If this is your First Day on the forums then you may encounter some limits on how much you can post, like, and mention other members. This is part of our spam filter, so it’s normally quite useful, but these will disappear 24 hours after your first post.

The forum uses a Trust system to grant more experienced members more perks and privileges the more they contribute (more likes to use, longer edit window, ability to upload photos, and so on). These are all based around how much you visit, read, like and post (and stick to the rules :slightly_smiling_face:). You can find out more in Trust Levels.

:exclamation:As this is a public forum almost all posts are publicly visible to anyone with internet access, and all the others are visible to anyone with a forum account, so make sure you’re happy with everything you choose to share.

It’s good forum etiquette to use the search bar to see if there are any recent topics on a subject you can join in with before creating a brand new one. The Search is really good, and we have over 10 years worth of members’ questions, advice and ideas to tickle your imaginations. And there’s also a list of popular searches below if you’re looking for inspiration… :ball_gag1:

Creating a new topic is really easy too. Simply tap +New Topic from any of the main pages to bring up the editor, pick a relevant category, give it a meaningful title, type it all up, and press ‘Create Topic’ when you’re ready - and then sit back, relax, and wait for the replies to roll in. :smile:

If you ever need to contact me privately you can email me at community@lovehoney.co.uk, or you can Flag any of my posts and use the ‘Something Else’ option to write me a short message. :slightly_smiling_face:
 

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you on the forums! @Lovehoney_Brenna :lovehoney_heart:

Welcome to the How-To!

If you’re new to the Lovehoney Forums this should give you a little tour of the basics. :slightly_smiling_face: For a more detailed look at some of the other forum features you can check out the guides in Forum Help.

Reading

Selecting a title from the topic list will always take you to your last read post in the topic. To enter at the top or bottom instead, select the reply count or last reply date.

Topics above the purple line are new or updated since your last visit. If you have read all the way to the end of a topic, its title will be light grey instead of black.

Navigation

For search, the menu, or your user page, use the icon buttons at the upper right.

nav-icon

While reading a topic, use the timeline on the right side to jump to the top, bottom, or your last read position. On smaller screens, select the bottom progress bar to expand it.

(If you have a physical keyboard, you can also press ? for a list of keyboard shortcuts.)

Replying

Press any image Reply button to open the editor panel at the bottom of your browser. Continue reading (and even navigate to different topics) while you compose your reply; minimize the editor for more room. Drafts will automatically be saved as you write.

Quoting

To insert a quote, select the text you wish to quote, then press the Quote button that pops up. Repeat for multiple quotes.

If the Quote button isn’t showing up when you highlight text make sure the ‘Enable quote reply for highlighted text’ box is ticked on your Preferences/Interface page.

Mentioning

To notify someone about your reply, mention their name. Type @ to begin selecting a username.

Emoji

To use standard Emoji, just type : to match by name, traditional smileys ;), or use the ones from your phone gallery.

Preferences

All topics less than two days old are considered new, and will show a new indicator.

Screenshot 2021-01-06 at 09.36.10

Any topic you’ve actively participated in – by creating it, replying to it, or reading it for an extended period – will be automatically tracked on your behalf, and will show an unread post count indicator.

Screenshot 2021-01-06 at 09.36.30

You can change your notification level for any topic via the notification control at the bottom, and right hand side, of each topic. (Notification level can also be set per category, look for the notification control on the upper right of each category page.)

Screenshot 2021-01-06 at 09.38.11

You can change any of these defaults by visiting your Preferences page.

Changing Your Username

If you wish to change your username you can pop a request in to Customer Care by sending an email to customercare@lovehoney.co.uk.

Please include:

Your current username:
Your prefered new username:
Name:

DOB or Postcode:

Deleting Your Account

If you have never posted anything to the forums you can delete your forum account from your Preferences/Account page (NB this will have no effect on your review or shopping account). However, in all other instances you will need to contact Customer Care and request an account deletion.

There are two options when removing a forum account:

  • Anonymise - keeps all posts intact, but removes your user information. Your posts will be marked as (eg.) Anon31415926
  • Delete - all forum posts and user data will be deleted. All topics created will also be removed, including other user’s messages posted to them.

It is possible to delete your forum account, your reviews, and your shopping account separately. When requesting an account deletion please be clear which you would like to be removed (eg Forum only, Forum and Reviews, or all three).

:lovehoney_heart: If you were a Secret Squirrel tester all your existing reviews will be moved to the Lovehoney_Bot account.

To request an account deletion please email Customer Care, and include the following information:

Username:
Name:
Email:
DOB or Postcode:
Delete or Anonymise:
Accounts to close: (Forum/Review/Shopping)

Once anonymised or deleted your account(s) will be unrecoverable. Please think carefully before you submit an account deletion request.
