It was the first time the magazine, first published in Britain in 1922, had included any sexual content.

Now, for its October issue, Good Housekeeping has asked a panel of women aged between 30 and 65 to test the UK's best-selling vibrators and report back on their findings.

The categories for scoring were: ease of use, instructions, noisiness and, most importantly, satisfaction rating.

The magazine will feature five of the best sex toys, each scored out of 100.

The most famous of the five devices tested, the 'Rabbit', came 4th out of 5, scoring 61 points out of a possible 100.

The bunny was beaten by a warming vibrator (66/100), a 'Bedside Bullet' (68/100) and the S-shaped 'Delight', which came top with a score of 74 out of 100.

The test also found that 87 per cent of testers had used a vibrator before and 52 per cent of testers' husbands suggested they should try one.

All testers except five felt that women should talk more about sex toys with friends and 84 per cent were encouraged to buy a vibrator on the basis of the Good Housekeeping test.

The most popular method of purchasing the sex aids was via website, then from a catalogue followed by a specialist shop.

June Walton, Deputy Editor, Good Housekeeping, said: "Even though 'Sex And The City' has removed the 'guilty' tag from owning a sex toy, and it's widely recognised that many young, single women own vibrators, our survey discovered that they're just as popular among our readers - only 13 per cent of our testers were vibrator virgins."
