Toy Review: LoveHoney Advent Calendar

Welcome to the most exciting toy review I have ever posted! I am SO excited to share the LoveHoney “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar with you! As with most commercial advent calendars, this box of sensual delights delivers 24 days of items, however, unlike the waxy chocolates of your childhood advent calendars this one is meant to titilate, vibrate, arouse and excite. I’m not good at advent calendars – I lack the discipline, even with incentive, to open one little door per day so I tend to have a backlog and enjoy them in multiples. In this case I was too excited to wait so I have unpacked the whole thing (don’t tell Santa how naughty I am!) because I was an impatient, slutty little elf and I wanted to show you the whole collection and how you might combine items for some very, very naughty and nice activities. Let’s see the goods, shall we?

Initial Thoughts

The “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar is what I would call a great starter kit for couples or singles who want to fill out their toy drawer in a hurry and add some staples as well as some more novel items. The kit has clearly been designed for hetero couples and has a very his’n’hers sensibility to it. That said, you could get creative with many of these devices, but do bear in mind that some items are meant for guys and others for girls. This isn’t perfect, in my opinion, but understandable from the majority consumer point of view. 

As someone with a fairly extensive toy collection and a high level of comfort and fluency in the sex toy world, some of these toys were a bit “introductory level” for me/us but as I mentioned, it’s great for expanding boundaries and getting the dialogue going about safe, sexy, kinky experimentation – and that’s never a bad thing! 

Aesthetics go a long way

One of the things I loved about this advent calendar is how lovely it all was – it really felt like opening a gift and the design of the packaging was impressive. As always it arrived discretely in a plain brown box – I was surprised by how big it is! Upon opening, the purple and gold theme was very pleasing with most of the toys and objects fitting that scheme. The 24 little doors were numbered and randomized so it was a fun hunt to find them in order.  

Something for everyone

Here is an exhaustive list of the items in the “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar: 

  • gold and black satin blindfold

Where to begin?

The “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar, if you follow it day by day provides new and interesting things to do and try. Or, if you’re a glutton like me, crack it open and start mixing and matching! The beauty of having a whole bunch of new things to play with all at once is that the combinations are only limited to your imagination. 

Bang for your Buck!

I was lucky enough to be sent the “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar from LoveHoney, on the house, in exchange for an honest review. Regardless I have to say that this is a well priced product at $200. It’s an investment but the fun you’ll have will take you through the holidays and into the new year.

Thumbs up!

I would absolutely recommend the “Best Sex of Your Life” Couples’ Advent Calendar especially to couples who are just getting into light bondage and toys.
