Erectile Dysfunction? Don’t know her!

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction affects millions of men worldwide! Whether it’s from natural old age, a medication you’ve been taking or change in habits, ED isn’t something to be overly ashamed about. The modern medicine market has so many options to help you. From prescription to herbal, the remedy is there men, hold tight!

What’s what

If you’ve been thinking you need to try a stimulant for your sexual experiences you should first know what’s what, and why you need it. Medical viagra is made of sildenafil, Cialis is made of tadalafil, Levitra is vardenafil and Stendra is avanafil. They all work in very similar ways. These drugs are all different versions of PDE5 inhibitors and help to ease blood flow into your penis by relaxing the muscles. Herbal “viagras” are usually made up of ginseng, L-arginine, Propionyl-L-Carnitine, Horny Goat Weed and Ginkgo. The herbal remedies might contain more than one of these ingredients. They work virtually the same way in terms of muscle relaxation, but also focus on making you feel aroused not just hard.

Side Effects

Take caution when trying herbal remedies and medical stimulants as they may interfere with medications you already take. Side effects can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, headaches, stomach pain, facial flushing, anxiety and very rarely some acne may show. Cialis should not be used with other blood thinning medications as it can cause an unhealthy dip
in blood pressure. Very very rarely Viagra may cause hearing loss and blindness, no herbal supplements will do that. It’s important to head straight to a doctor if you’re experiencing an erection for more than 4 hours as this can cause permanent damage.

Lasting times

Viagra is something people use when they need it, not a daily medication. It works within 30-120 minutes of taking it and lasts 3-5 hours. Cialis has a similar kick in time to viagra and lasts up to 36 hours. Levita works faster than viagra and lasts for 3-5 hours. Stendra will kick in after 15-30 minutes and lasts for up to 6 hours.

Now although none of these medications will “cure” your erectile dysfunction they will help to ease the hardship of it and allow you to enjoy sex with your partner. Just ensure to do ample research as you should with any medication and speak with a doctor about all the options and choose to take what sounds the best for you and your body. Ask questions if you’re unsure, but also be prepared for trial and error. What works like magic for some might not for you, but that’s okay! Trust the process!

Choosing Your First Sex Toy!

toys for sex

Buying your first toy can be so exciting, it opens up a whole new world of pleasure and fun. And for those who have never had an orgasm before, buckle up cowboy you’re in for a wild ride!! There’s so many different toys out there on the market ranging from beautiful bullets, thrusting rabbits, butt plugs with tails, and even dildos shaped like rockets, you think it – you can get it my
friend!!

Rabbit Sex Toys

Rabbit vibrators are made for dual stimulation, they are perfect for any beginner to the toy world and range in sizes, colours, speeds and shapes. Your typical rabbit consists of a long shaft to be used internally, while attached to the end of the shaft lies a clit stim function usually mimicking the ears of a rabbit. If you’d prefer something to focus on the G Spot plenty of rabbit’s
have a nice curve or bulge on their shaft to help massage that area. One thing to keep in mind when buying a rabbit is that not every rabbit will work for you, some might be too big or too small, won’t sit on your clit or won’t have enough strength. Really think about your body and have a hands on feel of all rabbits before you buy. I recommend any Evolved bunny, they are amazing for their price, warranty protected and have enough variety to find the right one for you.

Vibrating Bullets

The good old bullet, you can never go wrong with one of these in your toy kit. The vary in shapes, sizes and speeds. A bullet looks exactly like the name. A bullet can be used on the clit, and if long enough internally. They should be cherished, these little guys work so hard to make you orgasm, so in return make sure you keep them charged so they have maximum power, and
always clean every toy with toy cleaner after use. I recommend any NU Bullet, they pack a punch and have a huge variety of shapes.

G Spot massager

Your G Spot will give you a whole different orgasm to a stand alone clit orgasm. If you can find the right toy, releasing this new power is going to be life changing. There is a huge variety of shapes and sizes when it comes to stand alone G Spot wands. They have different sized bulges, thickness and density. If you need to push hard on your G spot to get it going I recommend the Cosmopolitan G Spot Romance, if that’s not an issue for you go with the NU Sensuelle G. The Sensuelle G is very unique because it also contain a massaging ball in it’s G Spot bulge. If a bunny doesn’t work for you, you can always pair your g spot wand with your favorite clitoral bullet for the best experience ever.

Dongs/Dildos

Dildos are great! They can be suctioned onto the wall of the shower, come in all shapes and sizes (like literally any size), and some even vibrate! A dildo is a great choice for someone wanting that little bit extra, without too much. Because most are non vibrating they are great to have to add that extra spice when using a bullet. Some come in a strap on form, so if you want to use your dongs with your partner you can! Ensure you use lots of lube and take it slow at first to warm up. I recommend any Tantus or Fun Factory dongs because they’re all made from good quality materials and have enough variety to satisfy anyone.

Anal toys

If anal is something you haven’t done before, toys are a great way to start. There is such a huge variety of plug shapes and sizes you will always find something to your taste. While most are made from silicone, if weight is something you’re after try a steel plug. They’re awesome to use during sex because even the smallest ones feel so much bigger because of their weight, and the pressure added to anal area is an awesome sensation during vaginal sex. Some plugs vibrate, some don’t. Make sure you have an idea in your head of what you want. Explain to your sales assistant what that idea is and they’ll be able to help guide you in a safe direction.

Lube is an essential when playing in the anal area, it will help keep your partner comfortable and make things glide in and out. I will always recommend the B-Vibe plugs. They have an amazing variety, and the best anal training guide set ever!

All in all, this should be a good guide to help you understand what’s what and what the possibilities are. Just remember your lube, toy cleaner and your hands! These will guarantee that you’ll be arriving at pleasure land in no time!
All of our OH ZONE adult stores are stocked to the brim with huge variety and our staff are always happy to help you!

Wooden sex toys… won’t I get splinters?

Timber sex toy
The never ending myth about all wooden toys is… but won’t I get splinters? I mean, when you think about it does any wooden furniture you sit on splinter you? Or your timber bed frame? What about that wooden spoon you use to cook? Exactly, none of these splinter you! So why would a sex toy that’s been carefully crafted for your bodily bits and bobs!
When looking to buy a wooden sex toy, keep in mind the things you’re wanting out of it, maybe a nice bulge for your g spot? Or maybe just a simple straight up and down! Wooden toys have just as much variety as regular toys. Even butt plugs!
Sustainability The beauty of wooden crafted toys is that the majority of people make them out of scrap wood which has either been given to them or picked up from scrap yards. This makes them extremely eco friendly toys, a big tick in the books of mother nature! The premium quality toys are coated with a formula that won’t ever chip or crack off, making them safe to use for a long time. They are also totally non porous when covered with the right coating!

How to Choose a Quality Wooden Toy

When choosing a wooden toy it’s important to read their descriptions thoroughly, as this is where you’ll learn about what wood they’re made from and what coating has been used. Try your best to avoid a “natural finish” wooden dildo, as these are more susceptible to coating damage and taking in moisture and bacteria. Another coating you may come across is something listed as “non-toxic food grade/body safe coating” which commonly is a wax and oil mixture, while these kinds of coatings are totally body safe, they will eventually wear off, so it’s best to avoid a butt plug coated in this material unless it’s only being used once or twice. It’s important to always check your wooden toy over from top to toe to make sure they’re not losing their coatings. There are a few wooden toys with medical grade coatings, but they’re mainly
manufactured through a company called Nobessence.  These types of coating will last the test of time better than any other coating.

How to Test Your New Toy

After purchasing your new wooden toy, you should do a “water test” and try and do these regularly. The water test is super simple, just fill your bathroom sink up with some luke warm water and submerge the toy for an amount of time (5 minutes is usually enough), and then take it out and dry it off. Once dry check the wooden toy’s coating all over for any cracks or shedding, also any white bubbles or similar looking defects. If you spot anything like this contact the manufacturer or store you bought it from and do not use it. This means it’s now a compromised toy and can harbour dangerous bacteria.

Storage

Your wooden toy should be stored in a specific way. Although sitting in a drawer with all your silicone toys won’t cause any significant harm, it’s important to look after the outer body of the wooden toy. If dropped on a hard surface or left rolling around you can damage the coating resulting in porosity. Most wooden toys will come with their own padded storage bag, but if they
don’t, it’s important to invest in one, it can be simple to make your own out of bubble wrap, or a google search will help you find one.
All in all, a wooden sex toy is a brilliant investment, safe and friendly to the environment and totally unique. Be sure to use some water based lube for ultimate pleasure and easy movement. And once finished, give it a good clean with a gentle toy cleaner! Feel free to give the Adult Lifestyle Centers a call to ask any further questions or find out about our range of toys!

Ultimate Guide to Better Sex

Ultimate Guide To Better Sex

Sex is something humans have engaged in since the dawn of time, it’s funny though sometimes I really sit and think about it and I wonder what the first people to have sex were thinking, what a strange yet probably very nice encounter for them. If you think you’re a sex god, chances are – you’re probably not. Overconfidence can lead to taking things too fast, or not reading your partner properly. Sex is never the same with each person, it takes time to figure each other out, and you should pay attention to detail!

Oral

Oral is something people love or hate, surprisingly not everyone enjoys giving oral. But, receiving oral is something everyone wants and, particularly males, expect. Oral is something that should be catered accordingly to the mood, person and individual wants. When going down on a girl it is very important to read her body, and DO NOT copy what you see in porn, there is nothing worse than a guy who thinks we enjoy having your palm viciously rubbed all over our clit and vulva, and no it will make us squirt like they pretend to in porn! You should take your time to work the tongue action and ensure switching up the motion every now and then, maybe add a bit of finger if you know she likes that, and don’t be the guy who doesn’t kiss after oral, it screams immature!

And girls, when going down on him don’t forget to work with your hand and
mouth, and not everyone likes deep throating so it’s not a necessity if that makes you feel uncomfortable. Read his body, work the balls too with a gentle massage or sucking if you’re okay with that, get all his senses stimulated, it helps him to feel like you’re really enjoying it and making it all about him, men love that.

Foreplay

Foreplay can be the most important part for some people. Most love the teasing, touching, kissing, and sensuality of it. It’s a lot of fun that helps you to get into a relaxed mood and an open mind. A great way to begin foreplay, and to make your partner feel special in general, is to get a massage candle going, they create a beautiful smell and they’ll love the warm feel of the oil all over them. Then you can begin the kissing and touching, even get some toys out if that’s what you fancy. Make sure to take the time to focus on your partner, be in the mindset to give and communicate if there’s something particular you had in mind or something you don’t like.

Sex Toys

Not everyone is into toys and that’s perfectly okay, but don’t be totally closed to investing in some in the future! There are so many amazing couples toys on the market now, such as the We Vibe Sync, Kiiro interactive set, NU cock ring and Hot Octopuss Pulse 3 Duo. All have their own style and quality, and are totally partner interactive. The Hot Octopuss is the most interesting out of all, it’s a great toy to use during foreplay, it has strong vibrations sent straight
to the shaft, but on the outer side is beautiful ridges perfect for your partner to grind on helping to stimulate her clit, which also helps work the toy up and down the shaft. The We Vibe Synce is the only toy on the market that can be inserted and used during sex, it has a strong, moveable, C shaped spine to hold it in place on the g spot and the clit for a guaranteed orgasm without the
extra work of having to hold a bullet or wand on the clit during sex. All Oh Zone adult stores carry both these sex toys, and the other mentioned above!

Now for the grand finale… intercourse!

Intercourse is the easy part, you should know what your partner likes and dislikes in terms of roughness and positions. All the little things like choking, hair pulling, some light bondage, anal, spanking and so forth are things you try along the way and should be spoken about first. Not everyone is going to like choking, hair pulling or light bondage because it can make them feel claustrophobic or trigger anxiety from loss of movement. If these are things that you enjoy and would like to engage these with your partner during sex it helps to talk about your past scenarios or use examples so they understand what it is, ensure you have made them feel safe and comfortable and they are 100% okay with these actions. Anal is not something you can just jump right into either, unless you know your partners body is able to do that. Prep with lots of lube, use fingers or plugs to warm the area and then go for it if they are ready.

Positions are key to think about, don’t go too crazy trying to bend your partner in all different directions. Doggy is a perfect staple, it allows you to have full range of movement and some nice views while she is feeling everything in a totally different way to basic missionary. Another good one is to sit on the
edge of the bed and have her come on top, it allows her to ride you in a way that feels comfortable and brings you both close together so you have perfect body grabbing and kissing range, it’s extremely sensual, especially if she is still covered in oil from that massage.

Basically, pay attention to the small things, don’t try too hard and let things happen naturally. Your partner will love you for trying for them, and that trying goes a long long way in the long run. Remember foreplay, don’t go to psycho in oral and enjoy yourself! And ladies, get out of your head, let the orgasm happen naturally! Just focus on having fun guys, enjoy
