Miss sex? Surely, this self-isolation bore you and maybe stressing you now. But this is the best time for you to know more about yourself and experiment a little. Your hands can surely help for sexual satisfaction, but if you want a next-level orgasm, this could be a perfect time for you to add these fantastic best male sex toys to your list.

 

Wand Vibrators

Nowadays, most women are now using vibrators, such as the popular wand vibrator. It is used for external stimulation of the vagina. However, others mistakenly use the wand by inserting it directly into their genitals instead of using the wand to run over the outer parts of the vagina to feel the satisfaction.

 

Wand vibrators have a simple shape, size, and controllers, so you can also use it on other parts of your body like nipples, testicles for men, the perineum, inner thighs, and labia. It is more pleasurable than the bullet type, especially for women with clitorises, and they tend to have stronger orgasms.

 

A perfect solo session is not possible without doing foreplay. Curious about where to buy this fantastic toy? Don’t worry. It is very much available to any online sex toys shop, so you don’t have to go outside and risk your life during the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

 

Cock Rings

Do you have a hard time erecting your penis? Not a problem; try using cock rings. These rings are worn around the penis base, and some are also putting it around their testicles. It will help their penis to erect harder, longer-lasting, and bigger. Cock rings come in different materials such as flexible silicone, leather, metal, and rubber.

 

In addition, cock rings are also used for medical purposes. Men that suffers from erectile dysfunction or is having a hard time maintaining their penises erect during sex can seek help from this sex toy.

 

Anal Beads

The anal beads are the unsung butt-play hero. They’re amazing. However, not all know more about anal beads as they mistakenly use this as butt plugs. Butt plugs and anal beads, although they all go into the anus, are two different toys. Anal beads give stimulation through movement, but plugs need to penetrate the anus to provide pressure and fullness.

 

Anal beads are meant to go in and stay in place; it stimulates inside the body. Not to mention, there is a lot of pleasurable possibility in the anus, and you don’t need to put anything inside them but to fully enjoy the pleasure. The opening part of the anal is clustered with nerves so that you can play it with a sex toy like anal beads.

 

Sex Dolls

Because of the pandemic and self-isolation, improvised sex dolls are now very in demand. The new version of sex dolls can smile, blink, moan, and interact. You can have exciting sex with these dolls just like how you do it with a woman’s body. Most of these sex dolls are made from silicone material, which is almost the same to human skin. As such, it makes a best companion at bed during this quarantine.

 

They are safe to use. You will be the only one who will use the doll, so you don’t have to worry about virus transmission. Also, they allow you to perform and explore more sexual positions. Remember, no matter how realistic they are, these dolls don’t have feelings, so they are very much available every time you need them. Perfect fit for self-isolation, right? These will differently change your quarantine routine.

 

Dildo

Unlike wand vibrators, dildos are used to penetrate the woman’s genital to feel satisfaction. It looks like a penis and comes in different sizes, shapes, and materials used. So if you miss the feeling of being penetrated because you are a distance away from your partner, then this is the best sex toy for you.

 

The good thing about this toy is anyone can use it. It can be inserted into the vagina or the anus so all genders can use it. The best advice for beginners, never to use the huge size. You can start to buy the smallest or medium size then if you think you need a bigger size, that’s the best time to get huge sizes.

 

Takeaway

Quarantine is not easy to handle; a lot are experiencing anxiety because of this isolation. However, there is always something you can do to change your quarantine routine. Using these sex toys can somehow help you to take away the stress and boredom.

 

Sex can produce good hormones in our body, which can help us to survive this pandemic. Having a healthy sex life produces antibodies that fight against viruses and bacteria. So what are you waiting for? Get up and buy the best sex toys that suit you.

Fetishes vs Fantasies.

fetishes and fantasies

Words are occasionally my favorite tool to use both in the bedroom and out. But today we aren’t talking about dirty talk, though we could. No today dear readers, we are talking semantics and comparing two of my favourite words and words that are often confused, confuddled and mixed up in many scenes, scenarios and interchanges between people when discussing kinks.

 

Fetish vs Fantasy.

 

Fetishes

 

A fetish can best be described as a strong desire or need for something be it an object or a person, an act or kink. There are those who can argue that a fetish could be categorized as an uncontrollable desire, the very opposite a phobia, in which a person has an uncontrollable fear, sometimes even irrational. Fetishes can sometimes be categorised as lust worthy, uncontrollable desires, perhaps even irrational to the rational part of a person’s mentality. But it still gives them sexual or pleasureable gratification.

 

Fetishes can be primal in nature and in some aspects some people have felt much shame in them. Finding safe and welcoming communities where they can find acceptance as well as safe spaces to safely explore, discuss and explore these fetishes is becoming more mainstream and is a joy to see as our society opens up and #breaksthestigma. Fetishes can be many and varied. To date there are over 239 fetishes but here are 12 of some of the most common sexual ones you may have come across

 

  1. Role-Playing – or dress ups. Just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t play make believe sometimes. It can be fun to slip into a different person from time to time, try on a fun costume and pretend to be a different character.

 

  1. Anal sex – this one is a little bit of a grey area, some people enjoy anal sex as a sexul act while others visualise it as a fetish. As long as everyone is consensually enjoying it, who are we to label labels?

 

  1. Lingerie – being aroused by a certain type of lingerie is definitely a fetish and more common than people give it credit. Stockings. Lace. satin. Latex. These pieces of adorning lingerie can be wholeheartedly turn ons for people.

 

  1. Impact Play- spanking, flogging, paddling and other forms of consensual striking.

 

  1. Foot Fetish – the worship of feet through acts such as kissing, massage, smelling, licking, touching or just watching.

 

  1. Bondage – Being tied up or restrained. Bondage can range from very mild to very intense and is usually found in BDSM but has also been known to be one of the first things to try when spicing up things in the bedroom. Restaurants can be made from cuffs, rope, a tie, cable ties,…..many things.

 

  1. Group sex – threesomes and foursomes are the most common but group sex also extends to orgies involving multiple people and gang-bangs including one person of one gender and mutliples of the other gender.

 

  1. Sensory play- When we think sensory play we often immediately think of hot and cold, ice and fire, or in this case wax play. Sensation play also includes blindfolds, feathers and for the more experienced, electrostim play.

 

  1. Dirty Talk – I say Dirty talk but well, it’s not really more things like humiliation and degradation, being called names, talking down and dirty.

 

  1. Orgasm control – or denial. This is edging into BDSM and is a subsection of submission and dominance, bringing the submissive to the brink of orgasm and forced to stop. And doing so repeatedly. or , withholding sex or orgasms over a period of time as a form of teasing.

 

  1. Voyuerism and exhibitionism- watching people having sex, or having sex out in public ith the risk of being caught having sex is very common. WHo among us has not had sex in a car or sneakily in the cinema?

 

  1. Pornography – Watching, looking at pornographic material, before or during sexual intercourse or play

 

So

 

Fantasies.

 

I will admit. Fantasies and Fetishes are not all that different. But the difference is a big one. Fantasies are our respective, imagined scenarios that get us all hot and heavy. They are the screenplay in our minds that we make up, that may involve various fetishes, or wants or desires, but they do not necessarily control us.

 

AND

 

This is the big one

 

We may not want to play them out in real life.

 

Fetishes drive us. We want them. Some people need them.

 

Fantasies are exactly that. They are imaginary.

 

Staging a scene in real life to mirror your fantasy, while nice, will be hard, especially if it is a fantasy you have lived and re-lived in your imagination for years. You have built it up with such exquisite and erotic detail that that is a hard act to nail in real life to the exactness of the fantasy. The fetishes, sure thing, those can be met. But the fantasy is a construct of the amalgamation of the fetishes and how you have controlled them in your imaginatorium.

 

Another example is a real life example of a couple who divulged their fantasies that they masturbated to, to one another, and the husband thought it would be nice to organise his wife’s fantasy, not realising, that while she fantasised about it, when faced with it she had zero interest in fulfilling it with him.

 

I think an important takeaway is that fantasies are amazing, and that everyone should have them, talk about them if you’re open enough and confident to do so, but make it clear when you do, if your fantasy is something you want to try, or something personal you enjoy having a good solo session to when you’re alone.

5 Reasons To Buy Sex Toys & How Reviews Can Help You

sex toy reviews

We have come a long way since the days of blushing and getting shy whenever someone mentions sex in any way. People are no longer that conservative and sex is being talked about rather freely everywhere. That led to an increase in conversations about, as well as in the use of, various sex toys that can make our bedroom lives a lot more interesting and much hotter. Even though there’s still an odd bird that shies away from these conversations, people are generally more open about their sexuality.

If you are thinking of getting a sex toy for you, or for you and your partner, then I suppose you have already done some research about these tools. Taking one quick look at Sex Toy Insights will help you deepen that research and understand which toys might be best for your particular needs. In case you are, however, still unsure whether you should buy these products, let me tell you a few reasons why it might be a great idea.

#1 Break The Monotony

Your first thought right now is probably that you should break the monotony experiencing with your partner in the bedroom, but that’s not the only thing I have in mind. Sure, you might want to spice things up with your partner from time to time and these toys will certainly help you do just that, but what about when you are single, or when your partner is away? Even masturbation can get boring if done the same way over and over again, and that’s the monotony you should break as well.

There are so many different toys out there designed to make your alone time much more fun and enjoyable, meaning that you will have no problems finding the product that will help you break the monotony of your masturbation. The same goes for when you decide to try these out with your partner. There are certainly a large number of products that will help you spice things up. All you have to do is learn how to buy the best ones, but we will get to that later.

#2 Be More Satisfied

People using sex toys report that they are much more satisfied with their sex life overall, as well as with the very orgasming act. It seems that these tools can actually increase your pleasure both when you are alone and when you are with a partner. Of course, if you aren’t flying solo, you should make sure that the other person knows that you are planning to incorporate toys in their bedroom. Once they try it, though, and feel the satisfaction, there will be no turning back.

#3 Get More Confident

If there is one issue that everyone has struggled with at some point in their lives, then it is self-confidence. We have all been in periods like those and some of us still carry the burden of getting insecure from time to time. Even though confidence should come naturally to us, far more people are struggling with it throughout their lives.

What if I told you that sex toys could help? You probably wouldn’t believe me at first, but when you think about it closely, it will become perfectly logical. When you explore and get to know your body completely, you are bound to start appreciating it more. This will significantly boost your confidence and help you feel extremely positive about your appearance.

Here are more reasons why everyone should use a sex toy: https://metro.co.uk/2017/07/05/everyone-should-own-a-sex-toy-and-it-can-improve-your-sex-life-in-unexpected-ways-6746705/

#4 Cure Sexual Dysfunctions

Now, it goes without saying that you should visit a doctor if you suffer from any type of sexual dysfunction. Both men and women can experience these. Yet, it appears that, apart from doctors, sex toys might be of enormous help in curing some common types of dysfunctions, such as performance anxiety and erectile dysfunctions.

Even if you are finding this hard to believe, research has shown that it is correct. When people learn how to please themselves and climax with the help of these toys, they will gain more confidence and more knowledge about how to do the same thing when they are with a partner. It’s probably because they won’t be anxious about their performance and their minds will be much more at ease, which definitely leads to having great sex and, of course, orgasming.

#5 Build A Stronger Bond With Your Partner

If you were under the impression that these toys were made only for singles, then you were certainly wrong. In fact, more and more couples are enjoying all kinds of sex tools together and this seems to be able to build a stronger relationship between them. The whole idea of adding toys to the bedroom is an extremely intimate act that is bound to help you get closer to the other person and share some moments that you otherwise wouldn’t. All of that helps make your relationship stronger.

How Reviews Can Help You When Shopping

Deciding to buy a sex toy is one thing, but finding the right one to buy is something completely different. When you start searching, you will quickly get swamped with all kinds of different products, as well as suppliers and that might be a bit overwhelming, especially if you are buying these for the first time and you don’t exactly know what would work for you best. Don’t worry, just because it might all seem overwhelming in the beginning, it doesn’t mean that it is impossible.

When you do a few things right, you will definitely be able to find the perfect toy for you in no time. As you can see on this page, the large selection of different products can certainly make you confused, but there is a way to learn how to go through this shopping process successfully. Reading product reviews is absolutely the first and the best thing you can do so as to find the perfect tool either for you or for you and your partner.

In case you aren’t sure that these reviews are designed to help you, let me put your mind at ease. They definitely are and they can be of tremendous help in the shopping process because reviews can tell you things that you need to know before placing any orders. In fact, they can tell you things that you might not have even known you needed to know. If you aren’t sure, though, how reviews can help you, I suggest you read on and find out.

#1 They Provide You With Lists Of Great Toys

Once again, it doesn’t matter if you are single or you want to surprise your partner with a sex toy, you will certainly be able to find the perfect product. The only thing is, you might not be sure which of those work well for singles and which ones are perfect for couples. You might not even know which ones you would enjoy.

Well, reviews are certainly there to help with these decisions. When you find a great website and a great source of information about these tools, you’ll be provided with at least a few lists of great toys that you might love. This will make your decision a lot easier and get you familiar with some tools you might not have known existed.

#2 They Inspect Product Quality

Naturally, you shouldn’t just buy the first product you come across. Instead, you should inspect their quality and that’s exactly what these reviews can do. They give you objective information about particular toys and their quality, which will help you make the right choice.

#3 They Inspect Supplier Reputation

One last thing you need to keep in mind when shopping is the reputation of the supplier. Once again, reviews are extremely helpful in this regard. They help you understand how reputable certain suppliers are and whether you should buy from them or not.

Anorgasmia

female sexual health

Say it with me now.

An-or-gaz-mia

 

What is it? It is the inability to reach orgasm. Whether this is vaginally, clitorally, penally or at all. Anorgasmia.

 

Today we will be talking about female Anorgasmia because I have been talking more and more to ciswomen who not only feel the pressure to have an orgasm during intercourse but feel that there is something inherently wrong with them that they can’t or haven’t had an orgasm either at all, or during intercourse with their partner.

 

And it causes them considerable mental stress and significant emotional turmoil.

 

I am not yet an expert but I do have a lot of experience. I am well read in this and I have conversed with many people about this and through research both academic and of my own volition there is nothing wrong with not being able to achieve orgasm.

 

A study in both America and the UK showed that over 70% of women volunteered that they either had very infrequent orgasms or none at all. Out of those 70% many explained that occasionally they could achieve orgasm during penetrative intercourse if they stimulated their clitoras during play. Others reported that they waited and masturbated after penetrative intercourse was finished. Others reported that they “faked” an orgasm to cover up not being able to achieve one.

 

Upon further academic and article research I found that there is quite the stigma around cis women “faking” orgasms because they feel that they are expected to, or that they don’t want to disappoint their partner. As instagram @froeticsexology says “orgasms don’t define good sex” and highlights that we should be aiminf for pleasure instead of orgasms.

 

Anorgasmia can occur because of many factors and can be resolved, if it causes you concern or distress. Anorgasmia can stem from:

  • psychological reasons,

  • PTSD,

  • stress,

  • medication,

  • physicality or

  • barriers to stimulation

  • to name a few.

 

Different methods can be used and explored to resolve Anorgasmia. Your doctor may be able to assist with anorgasmia, other health professionals can also prove to be beneficial, such as a psychologist, or counsellor or even selecting and speaking to a Sexologist or Sex therapist. Sexologists are growin in number and awareness within our community, providing accredited information to our communication and helping in educating, breaking the stigma around sex and assisting us in feeling comfortable in discussing all things sex. Head over to https://societyaustraliansexologists.org.au/practitioner-directory/ to find an accredited sex therapist near you.

 

Another method which is highly effective with Anorgasmia is relaxation and self exploration. Solo.

 

These days there is much pressure on us, sexually and in everyday life. Both of these can sometimes be linked to anorgasmia.  Relaxation and getting in touch with your own body, in your own time, no pressure, no expectations can be a great way to connect and engage with your body and your feelings and your pleasure. Self exploration and masturbation is the next key. Take it slow. Explore your body, your skin, lips, nipples, clitoras, labia and vagina. Slowly. Use toys to help you explore the senses. Try vibrations and heat, rotations and thrusting.

 

Using insertables, try finding your g-spot. Release the notion that the vagina is full of nerves and hold in your mind that the pleasure of the vagina is pressure. The nerves are mainly felt through the clitoral root that wraps around the vagina, lending its sensation to the G spot. Use a g spot vibe or your fingers to curl against this spot half a finger length up into your vgainal entrance.

 

Some cis women may not orgasm from the G pot, remember this isn’t just about orgasm, its about pleasure. But let’s delve a little deeper. Some women need their A spot stimulated to climax.

 

The A spot is so aptly named for the anterior fornix which is located towards the rear of your vaginal cavity just before your cervix. The A spot focuses the most on pressure. So stimulating the spot with a broad head of a toy and rubbing or massaging this spot will focus the greatest amount of pleasure. Utilising a massage wand that  is able to be inserted will provide a large/broad head and powerful and concentrated point of vibration that will stimulate both the A-spot and the G-spot simultaneously.

 

If attempting to explore the A-spot and it is a tad uncomfortable it is very possible that you are not aroused enough and that you’re hitting the cervix or “bottoming out” take a breath. When cis-women are aroused the vaginal canal extends up into the abdomen, tucking the cervix out of harm’s way. The A-spot is on the tummy side of the cervix. The P-spot (aptly named for the Posterior Fornix- did you guess?) is on the opposite side of the cervical opening, towards the spine.

 

Both these spots can feel amazing to most women but they come with patience and exploration. Rubbing up against these spots will increase moisture and slickness within the canal, the blood rushing from arousal heightening these delicate pressure plates. Bending your legs upwards towards your stomach, or supporting your lower back with a pillow will bring this wondrous spot closer to the touch.

 

Again, and I cannot stress this enough, take this slow. If there is discomfort, stop. But don’t give up. This is why self exploration is so much fun, you try again and again, with no agenda, no time sensitivity. relax , breathe deep, add some more lubrication and stimulate your clitoras to bring more blood flow and arousal and try again.

 

Try different gels and oils to assist with arousal. “On Ultra” is a topical ciltoris oil utilising cinnamon, sweet almond and ginger to spur arousal and provide a tingling, vibration on the nerves found there. This assists in arousal, by stimulating blood flow, and inducing the production of a wetter canal. Try some and sit with the feel, become aware with the vibrations you feel and the warmth as it spreads to your Labia and throughout your pelvic area. Now try your insertables again. Being mindful throughout this process also proves in increasing attention, feeling and relaxation within the moment. All of these are essential to that good feeling and good place to help encourage an orgasm.

Using a bullet, a wand or a clitoral specific massager can be used to stimulate the nerves on the clitoral root. When the body is aroused, the clitoras will retract a little underneath the protective hood, to lessen the sensitive nerve endings. With your toy of choice, or your fingers, apply slight pressure and massage for pleasure. As the heat and feelings build, don’t be afraid and pull back, gently lean yourself into the feeling. Try and release the tension that you begin to feel throughout your body and surrender. As the pleasure mounts you may feel it give way. And what a feeling. Different different clitoral toys will depend on how sensitive you are, how steady handed you are, and how much power you would like to assist you. If you find yourself getting frustrated, that’s ok too. Take a break. Remember what we said about the pressure on ourselves? If you’re wondering when it will happen? Or why it’s taking so long? Chances are that you are willing yourself into a mindset where you will be unable to achieve an orgasm, and significantly affect the pleasure you are feeling within the moment.

 

Getting in touch with your own body and your own pleasure is empowering. It helps you to relax, it helps you to learn. And the more you learn overtime, the more you may feel more confident to invite a second player in to share in the secrets that you have found. Practice definitely helps to train your body to relax, surrender and invites a safe space for pleasure.

 

But most importantly, have fun. Delight in the surrender of your body and the touch. Focus on feeling good, and doing things that feel good. Don’t view the orgasm as the finish line. View self pleasuring or masturbating as the goal, and the orgasm, whether you have it or not, as a happy addition.

Anorgasmia is not something to feel shame about. It is a learning curve. And it is more common than we are led to believe. By talking about it, more people will be aware of it, its commonality, the reasons behind it, and how masturbation and self exploration can help.

How to Find a Good Sex Shop in Adelaide?

sex shop adelaide

Adelaide is a beautiful capital city of the cosmopolitan hub in Southern Australia. The city is known for its wide range of historical significance, especially with the renowned museums that line up the city.

 

Also known as the city of churches, Adelaide has many interesting facts many don’t know of. Apart from its rich history, there are several hidden adult stores that Adelaide is known for. This list of adult shops in Adelaide gives you a gist of the best ones.

 

But, with so many stores around, how do you find the best one?

1. Ask your Friends

 

You can never go wrong with your friends. If you have a few in your friend circle who are into sex toys and adult fantasy shops, asking them for reference is always a good idea. This way, you can be assured of the shop’s genuineity, and you can also get a heads up about what’s good and what’s not.

 

Make sure that you are specific about your requirements for the sex shops. If you want one that is solely into bondage and BDSM kinky stuff, be clear about that to your friends.

 

If this is your first time visiting a sex shop, you can also ask your friends about the essential dos and don’ts.

2. Hit Up Google Search

 

There is nothing on this planet that doesn’t come up with a quick Google search. The same goes for the adult stores in Adelaide too. A quick search helps narrow down your options. You can even filter out the search results based on your locality and the rating of the shop.

 

A Google search also helps you get a better idea about the store’s quality via the ratings. It enables you to pick out the best one according to customer opinions and reviews.

 

Moreover, it takes less than a minute to do so, which is a good enough reason for you to do this.

 

 

3. Check Out Local Sex Toy Reviewer Blogs

 

It is a very underrated method, but checking out your local sex toy reviewer’s blog will lead you to Adelaide’s best sex shops. There are several popular adult toy reviewers on the internet; you just need to find the one that is local to your area.

 

Aside from helping you to find the best adult stores, checking out their blogs helps you get a better understanding of the toys as well. It comes in especially handy for the ones who haven’t used a sex toy before in their life.

 

It guides you about their usage, the good and bad, and the correct way of using them for optimal pleasure.

4. Visit Multiple Stores

 

Adelaide has several sex toy stores around the city. Some might be closer to where you live and some, a little far away.

 

If you want to find the best one in the city, we’d suggest visiting all the popular ones, irrespective of the distance. Doing so helps you get an idea of the stores’ quality and the kind of products they have.

 

Instead of just relying on a single store, scurry through multiple of them to get the best toys for yourself.

Conclusion

 

Finding the best sex shop in Adelaide might not be as easy as finding the city’s best museums. When looking for an adult store, you want to consider several factors. From the customer reviews and ratings to the quality and variety of products they have in stock and display, there are several factors that you need to consider.
