You never forget your first time, but most people don’t remember their second. And this isn’t just about sex (although, really, it’s mostly about sex). You probably don’t remember your second day at a job, second car, second date...
Unless something spectacular happens at one of them (like if the second date is the first time), your second everything is usually the first step toward forgetfulness. It’s where things start to blend in. That’s just human nature.
We’re happy to report, though, that sex toys are the exception to the rule.
Even without kids, it can be hard for married couples sometimes to break the routine and try something new in bed. Not everyone is going to check into a sex dungeon for the weekend, or turn their apartment into a Den of Erotic Mysteries. But the alternative to that isn’t another night of bickering about what to watch on Netflix.
Married couples want to break the routine and begin to experiment, without having to rearrange their lives. Routine breaking can be easily done, sparking passion, making every day a little better, and maybe leading to more adventures together in the bedroom.
You don’t need a dungeon. You just need these six best toys to spice up sex for married couples.
I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine: I used to be terrible at communicating with my partner. Introverted by nature and a little shy, I didn’t know how to ask for what I wanted. I barely knew what it was I even wanted, and I hesitated to admit it for fear that it would make me seem inadequate somehow. I wanted to be perfect for him. I wanted to be perfect, period.
It didn’t take long for me to realize something wasn’t right, though it took me a bit longer to pinpoint exactly what that something was. The problem wasn’t really my lack of expertise—it was that I wasn’t allowing myself to trust in my partner or our relationship enough to open up to him about something that, though it felt private to me, was deeply affecting both of us and our time together. Relationships, of course, are built on trust—and the only way to build that trust is through open communication.
It’s Friday morning, but not just any Friday morning. Tonight is date night. You’ve had this day planned for a while; you’ve already gotten your sex toy “date in a box” kit. There are no phones, the kids are with mom, maybe you’re going to dinner, maybe not. The whole goal of this date night is to have time alone together.
And, needless to say, to spend that time twined in and around each other’s bodies as much as possible.
But it’s still morning. It’s 8:00 AM. You’re rushing to get to work. You have, like, at least 10 hours before you can taste each other again. How will you make it through the day?
These eight tips will help you use those hours at work for naughty intimacy, surrounded by people who have no idea what is roiling inside you. There’s nothing more delightful than being in a cloud of your own sexual energy while the world passes by. Get ready for tonight.
The road to recovery after hip replacement surgery can be long and challenging. It’s no surprise that patients become eager to get back to their old lives and routines and often struggle to adapt to their new—though temporary—physical limitations.
These limitations include those surrounding intimacy with partners. While recovery can take up to an entire year, that is a very long time to wait to resume relations. And as it turns out, love really can’t wait. And shouldn’t have to.
The most important thing to keep in mind, throughout the healing process, is to be patient with your partner and yourself. Intimacy is all about empathy, and if you or your partner are recovering from surgery, that need for empathy and understanding only increases. Remember, these limitations will pass. You can still enjoy intimacy… and pleasure. And until you are fully recovered, you can still have hot, passionate, steamy sex. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a position or toy that brings you and your partner amazing new ways to orgasm.
Most people don’t like presents because they like getting stuff. They like getting presents because it shows that you care. It shows that you are thinking about them, that you are considering their happiness, and that you want to bring the most happiness and joy and pleasure to a cold day in mid-February as possible.
You know what works great for this? Sex toys. Sure, get chocolate for your partner. Get a nice bottle of red wine to enjoy over a long and lingering dinner. Go see the new 50 Shades movie. (Even if you don’t love it, you could get some good ideas.) Do the traditional stuff, or do the stuff you’ve made your tradition.
But at the end of the night, you’re going to end up in bed. And that’s where our Valentine’s Day gift guide with the 12 best sex toy presents comes in.
There are a lot of people who are fascinated, intrigued, and turned on by the thought of bondage, restraint play, domination, submission, role-playing, or any other element that makes up BDSM sexuality. But they may be scared at the thought of pain, imagining that’s all BDSM is, and think that you have to jump right into being tied to a door and whipped.
But we’d like to introduce you to a concept called “vanilla bondage.” Vanilla bondage is BDSM without the binding, flogs, or whips. It is BDSM for people who want to learn more, or who have learned more, and know precisely what they want.
Almost anyone who has experienced any degree of paralysis can tell you that friends often share questions about your disability once they feel close enough to ask. And when the braver friends have exhausted their polite questions—Do you feel any pain?—they sometimes get down to the questions they’ve wanted to ask, but propriety prevented them: Can you still have sex? Do you enjoy it?
The short answer? Yes, and yes.
Everyone has a first time for buying an adult toy, whether you are 18 or 80. And, despite things changing, and the ease that online shopping brings to the process, it remains the same for everyone: you have to find what makes you happy.
But if you’ve never bought adult products before, you may not know the best ways of doing it, and may feel embarrassed about that, as well as nervous about buying them. Don’t be.
Sex toy kits provide a theme and direction for your next date night—but more than that, they provide limitless possibilities. They all contain a few kinds of toys, letting you explore each other in ways that you might not have imagined before… or, more likely, in ways that you have imagined, when you dreamed up a steamy pulp-romance-cover sort of date night.
Really, these sex toy kits are a date in a box, providing the perfect material for a sexy end to your night.
Like any disability or lasting change to our body, amputation and limb loss can lead to honest doubts and uncertainties. Those concerns range from the small to the significant, and extend to every corner of life. It’s natural to wonder about the effect on sex and intimate partnerships. While limb loss and amputation may require adaptations and modifications to your intimacy, it should not diminish the quality, vibrancy, and satisfaction of your sex life.
Sex is for everyone. The physical pleasure and intimacy that comes from our tightest bonds is one of the great gifts of being human, and we celebrate all body types. That includes plus size, a significant segment of our population, but one to whom sex advertising seems to avoid.
Well, we reject that. While there can be certain considerations to account for with plus-sized sex, they can be easily handled with patience, understanding, a sense of humor and adventure, and the right equipment.
