So, masturbation. Easier done than said right? And this is especially true for women. Research suggests that 95% of men and 89% of women are getting down with themselves, yet there is still this perception that masturbation, or at least talking about it, is embarrassing or bad in some way, regardless of discussions around its health benefits.
Calling all ladies that love masturbating! So, hopefully, all of you.
Masturbation is fun, it’s relaxing and for some of us, right now, it might be the only downtime that you can get. In my opinion, one of the best things you can do for your sex life - whether partnered or solo – is to explore your body. So warm up those fingers and dive on in.
Our labia tend to get a bit of a rough deal. We constantly worry about how they look and compare them to other women we see in photos or in films.
And, when it comes to playtime they barely get a look in.
If they are lucky, they will get a very short stroke as they spread apart and then, they are pretty much forgotten. For most of us, our labia play the supporting actress in our sex lives while the clitoris and the g-spot get the starring roles. But, not any longer.
The new year is about labia self-love!
It might be! But according to ob-gyns, using lubricant is also one of the best ways to reduce your risk of getting one. It’s all about the kind of lube you use.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are super common and can be a result of all sorts of things. If you have had one, you know how uncomfortable and relentless they can be. A UTI is basically a burning hell-fire inside your body.
Ahh yes, coconut oil. The slippery little superfood of our times.
And I get why it is such a media darling at the moment. Coconut oil seems to be good for everything.
Dry skin? Coconut oil. Frizzy hair? Coconut oil. Sautéing onions? Coconut oil. Out of lube? Coconut oil!
Yes, coconut oil can be used as a lubricant
And it works pretty damn well too. It’s slippery, it stays in place, it doesn’t dry out and it smells lush and lovely – so long as you enjoy the smell of coconut of course.
Ahh, sweet butt plugs.
The humble butt plug is a toy that gets a bit of a bad rep amongst the un-initiated. And, a lot of that seems to be a result of the idea that they are only used to train for anal sex with a partner. Or, that if you don’t have a prostate, you won’t feel pleasure.
A coregasm is an exercise-induced orgasm, which is actually the official term. It gets the term coregasm because it occurs most frequently when people are performing core workouts. But that’s not the only way for people to achieve an orgasm while exercising. Some people can reach an exercise orgasm from biking, running, swimming, or even yoga postures. And there are a lot of cases reported about weightlifting causing a happy ending at the gym, too.
It all depends on the toy!
We love lube. It’s slippery, it’s slidey and it makes all kinds of sexual play feel awesome. The point of lubricant is to reduce friction between a sex toy and your skin without reducing sensation. You will still feel everything, it will just feel better.
This kind of conversation has been doing the rounds for a while now. As toys get better and stronger, there seems to be a growing concern that “over-stimulation” from a vibrator may cause a loss of sensitivity or numbness of the clitoris.
Glass is first-class baby!
Ahhh glass toys. They are smooth, they are firm, they are heavy and the stimulate you in all the right ways. And I know that the thought of inserting a toy made of glass into your body may seem scary but all our glass dildos are made from strengthened borosilicate glass that is hardened and extremely difficult to break.
Wand vibrators are one of those toys that many people assume can only be used solo. This is largely because of their perceived size, but not all wand vibes are huge! Yes, wands like the Doxy Wand and the Satisfyer Wand-er are large, but there are also smaller options and even mini wands that are basically the size of a big bullet vibe.
A couple that plays together stays together!
Playing alone is cool, playing with others is also cool and the super cool thing is, there are a lot of toys that you can use for both! Clitoral stimulation is a bit of a favourite amongst vulva owners and for many of us, it can be an important and necessary part of our couples play too.
Goodbye sight. Hellloooo touch!
So simple, so sexy and so damn satisfying. Blindfolds are a must-have in any couples collection. They not only look super sexy but they are a simple way to mix up any type of sexual play and add an extra element of fun.
Binding for bonding…. Yes, please!
In my opinion, rope tying is some of the most fun you can have with or without your clothes on. And there’s no better time than now to learn a new trick right? There are all sorts of ways to use bondage rope in the bedroom. You can use it to bind another, as part of restraint play, as a form of power-play or even just for aesthetic purposes.
