The 8 Best Ways to Achieve a Female Orgasm

Oh, the female orgasm – one of God’s true wonders. That beautiful little muscle spasm that starts with a twitch and ends with a giant wave of warm pleasure running through every inch of one’s body. Despite this feminine miracle, a large proportion of women struggle to climax and those that can have to be laid in a certain position, on a certain time of day, with a certain vibrator to even have a slight chance of experiencing one. Shocking research suggests up to 50% of women do not orgasm when they have sexual intercourse even with external stimulation (Brenner, 2017), further research shows 10-15% of women have never experienced a female orgasm at all (James, 2009).

12 Days of Sex Positions to Try

Let’s talk about one of the most amazing acts there is – sex. Great sex has been spreading joy and cheer ever since our cavemen ancestors were around, yet do you find your bedroom shenanigans have become a little boring and predictable? Are you finding that you and your partner are just doing the same sex positions over and over again?

The best and hardest sex positions to try with your partner

As much as we all love the missionary position, having it every Sunday at 9 pm for an average of 4 minutes 36 seconds can become a little monotonous. Trying out new sex positions in the bedroom is an easy way to keep things exciting between you and your partner. New sex positions encourage you to keep an open mind underneath (or outside of) the sheets and when you offer your mind and body to your partner you build trust, intimacy and openness in your relationship

How long should sex last and how to last longer in bed

How long should sex last?

It’s the age-old question everyone wants to know, we’ve all heard about (and possibly experienced) the one-minute wonders and the stallion sex session, but how long should sex really last? Of course, our overall mood, how aroused we are and who our partner is makes a difference, but we can shed some light on averages for how long sex lasts before the grand finale.

How long should sex last?

Some Canadian and American sex therapists conducted research in 2008 to answer this question.  Their research helped to define what is considered an adequate or desirable amount of time to have sex, and what people felt was too short or too long. A sexual encounter consists of much more than just penetrable sex (who doesn’t love being driven wild with some foreplay), but the numbers below refer to penetrative sex only.

Reasons you should try: lubricant

We know that the concept of using lubricant is a little bit lost on some couples. A lot of our customers often tell us that they think it isn’t something they should worry about and that maybe it’s something the older generation should worry about. Well – you’re wrong. Our love of lubes needs to rub off onto you – here’s 7 reasons you should try lube!

1.     It makes it easier to orgasm

Applying lube makes both men and women feel more aroused, making sex easier, increasing stimulation and creating a more intense and intimate experience. In fact, a study from Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health determined that lube makes it 50% easier to orgasm for both men and women. That’s a 50% higher chance of reaching climax – who wouldn’t want that?

A Beginners Guide to Anal Sex

The words ‘anal sex’ might have you cringing. Many people see it as a taboo. Others see it as an act of trust, love and closeness. Anal play has been having its moment of the last couple of years, we have seen the number of anal sex toys sold increase. More and more couples are trying it.

Think only gay men enjoy anal play? Then you’re a little bit behind the times. Whilst it’s true that men have the advantage of having a prostate, which feels incredible when stimulated, but many women enjoy anal play to. That’s because the anus is richly endowed with a body of nerve endings, these nerve endings are crying out to be teased and stimulated!

 

Safety always comes first

Everyone likes surprises and everyone likes sex – so you’re thinking of combining the two! DON’T. ‘Sticking it in’ is a sure-fire way to put people off anal for life. Talk about it first. It might be something new to the other person or maybe they’ve been thinking about asking you. Make sure you’re both in agreement that it’s something you want to try, and it’s not one person doing it to please the other!

Couples Sex Toys for Beginners

Okay, you and your partner have both decided to introduce a sex toy to your relationship, realising how much added enjoyment it can bring to your sensual sessions, plus it can’t hurt to experiment a little bit. The question now is “which one do I choose?”

Because different types of toys are useful for different types of sex, and require different levels of involvement during lovemaking – finding the right one can be tricky for the newcomer. Don’t worry, this small article is designed to help you with your decision, informing you about what toys we think are best suited to couples writing chapter one of this new and (hopefully) exciting adventure.

If one of you, or both, are new to sex toys and aren’t yet masters of how to use them correctly then a large size toy could easily be misused and result in severe discomfort. Not only will this cause physical pain in the short-term, long-term you may put the other person off using sex toys for life, torpedoing your sexual escapades before any meaningful (certainly memorable) lift-off.

Our advice is to start small, huge stallion dongs will forever be readily available should you ever get the itch to use one, but before you even consider that we repeat, start small.

The following is a collection of small size toys that are appropriate for first-timers:

 

The Bullet

Wireless Mini Bullet (10 Speed) (£5.95): Perfect for the beginner just discovering the joys of adult toys!

Non-threatening, pocket-size, simple to use and more versatile than it looks. Predominantly vibrating bullets are used for clitoral/vaginal (external) stimulation but we see no reason why you can’t use it to tease the nipples, inner thighs or anywhere else that instinctively feels right. Bullets are also unisex, the amount of men who are discovering the joys of applying a dash of lubricant to their manhood and gliding the bullet up and down their shaft is on the increase, big time!

 

Cock Ring

Vibrating Cock Ring (£19.95): Perfect starter cock-ring!

Sometimes referred to as a ‘love ring’, regardless of what you call it the man wears this little device on his penis at the base of the shaft. He puts it on after he has become erect (please use lubricant, we cannot stress that enough). It should be tight, but not uncomfortable.

Its main function is to prevent blood from leaving his penis so he not only lasts longer but his erection will be slightly bigger, girthier and juicier than normal (the way it is when he’s really got a throb-on … apologies, we couldn’t think of any other way to describe it).

The benefits don’t stop there. A lot of cock rings now have a mini vibrating bullet built into the design so when the man is wearing it and things are in full flow the bullet vibrates against the other person’s intimate area, sending intense “oh my” rumblings where they desire them most. On some models, the bullet is removable, great if you’re thinking of investing in a vibrating bullet as it becomes a 2-in-1.

Warning: if the bullet is not designed to be removed, do not remove it. This will only result in you breaking a perfectly good toy.

 

Small to medium size Vibrator

The Big Finger (£29.95): Not too big to intimidate a first-timer

Pleasure Wave: Pleasure Wave Pink Vibrator is a great way to make ‘me time’ just that bit more memorable. (£29.95)

Similar to the bullet in many ways; petite in size, non-intimidating, easy on the eye, also easy to operate – is one more button really going to make it that much harder to use? Where it differs from the bullet is it can be used for both external and internal vaginal stimulation.

You may have noticed the shaft on one of the vibrators is curved at the end, this makes it ideal for G-spot stimulation, enabling you to replicate the movements you would perform if using your fingers, only now the fingers are vibrating!
