You might have missed the fact that 4 November was National Sex Toy Day, but don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to make up for it.
We think it’s great that there’s a specific day honouring the humble sex toy, and we agree with an article for Bustle which stated: “No matter who you are, what you do, or what you’re into, there is a sex toy out there for you.”
Sex writer Amanda Chatel went on to add that “sex toys make our lives better”, another sentiment we agree with!
In celebration of National Sex Toy Day, she rounded up some of the top sex toys she’s tested in recent months, so we thought we’d also share some of our favourites based on her recommendations.
One that made her list was a vibrator designed to pleasure both partners. We love our couples vibrator that is perfect for providing stimulation to both partners during sex. And, of course, your use of it doesn’t have to be limited to intercourse, it’s great during foreplay to stimulate all of your favourite spots.
Another toy that she loved was one that stimulated her g-spot as well as her clit. We have a wide selection of vibrators that target both of these sensual and very sexy areas, so you can have orgasm after orgasm.
She also loved playing with a remote controlled vibe. Give your partner the control with one of these bad boys and you can climax in all kinds of weird and wonderful places. Whether you choose to wear one when you’re on a hot date, you enjoy playing in the comfort of your own home, or you’re in a long distance relationship, these little toys can really spice things up.
You can get remote controlled clit stims, g-spot vibrators and butt plugs, so there really is something for everyone with these fun little toys. Many of the latest toys are controlled via an app, so they can be super discreet too.
Ms Chatel was also a fan of a set of non-vibrating butt plugs, which she claimed are a great way to introduce anal play into your sex life. If you want to move on from these, there are also plenty of vibrating butt plugs available in the UK - check out our range if you don’t believe us.
You also shouldn’t discount bondage gear when you’re exploring sex toys, the sex writer revealed. Among her top picks were a pair of Japanese-style cuffs, which are made from soft cotton rope.
This makes them a bit gentler on your ankles or wrists, and means you won’t be left with any marks, she explained.
Our hemp wrist and ankle cuffs from Kink are very similar and we think they’re a great way to get into bondage play with your partner safely and in a way that’s comfortable when you’re being restrained.
If you’re keen to take your vibrator sex game to the next level, investing in a g-spot massager is a good choice. We recently offered some tips on how you can use one of these toys to learn to squirt when you orgasm.
It’s a good idea to experiment with this kind of stimulation yourself, as well as with your partner, to help you find out what’s truly pleasurable for your body.
