Sex & Music

Woman Listening to Music

There are many things in life that make us feel good. Our favourite food, our favourite animal, beautiful scenery, good music, and sex. Whilst we can’t combine all these elements into a single sexual session, unless you’re really determined, we can look at the combination of Sex & Music – a relationship that I have not really given much thought to before now. Listening to music, studies have shown, makes the brain release the chemical dopamine which is the brains way of rewarding us when we do things it likes such as food, exercise, sleep and sex. Further, music can be used as a stimulant in much the same way as we have ‘work-out’ music and this stimulation increases our heart rate, breathing rate and our skins ability to feel (think skin goosebumps). Since sex causes dopamine to be released into the system, and so does music, imagine the effects that you would have when you combine the two! Alright, so it’s not entirely a cumulative effect, but it does increase the dopamine levels when compared to one.

Let’s take it away from sex kind of, and talk about the effects of music when exercising and do people listen to music when they’re exercising? Well, a study in 2006 looked at the relationship between exercise and music. What it revealed was that people who listened to music when engaging in physical activity would exercise for a longer period of time than those that didn’t. The reason; they felt less fatigue than there boring non-music listening counterparts. It also creates a focus on the task, as music in a way, shuts our brain out from other forms of distractions such as atmosphere stimuli or even fatigue, body aches etc. When we add Sex & Music it gives us the ability to zone out from our own bodies, tune out of our own thoughts and focus onto something which is more interesting. Music can in a way, create the feeling of the situation. If you would like the situation to feel calm you can play some meditation music or if you would like to add more romance into the event play songs about love.

Since sex is a physical activity, you can liken exercise to sex and combine the above listed benefits to your sexual practice. Put simply, when adding together Sex & Music you won’t get tired as fast meaning that you’ll last longer and because of the increased focus you’ll be more in tune with the various senses. Some studies have suggested that music during sex is actually not conducive to the development of fantasies. However, as with any kind of study there are always counter studies that are done to contradict it.

The fact being though, that music makes us feel good means that for the majority of people it will have some kind of effect. There is a reason why restaurants will play music. Firstly, to make you comfortable so that you spend more time there and hopefully spend more, and to create an atmosphere. However, as you’ll notice different people will gravitate towards different clubs, pubs and eateries because of the ‘vibe’. Playing music would therefore be dependent on both of your tastes and whether you have shared tastes. What stimulates your mind in terms of good music, may not stimulate your sexual partners. There are a variety of sexual playlists you can check out online, but whilst they’re touted to be great love songs, I would probably be more inclined to go with something you both enjoy for the full effect of playing music during sex.

You may find our brains naturally linking with the song because our brain will naturally try and reproduce the images the song says in our heads with the person we are being intimate with. For example, if the song was singing about how beautiful the person is. We may find ourselves paying more attention to the smaller thing’s about their body that we wouldn’t have noticed before. Or if the song is singing about how much we love the person, we might spend more time showing your partner you passionately love them. Sex & Music can place us into a sexual frame of mind.

These days there are many sex toys that have wave motion or are activated to the rhythms of music. Perhaps you should add some music to your sex toy play?

Review: Je Joue Nuo

Je Joue Nuo Prostate Massager

Recently in store we have received a lot of Je Joue products and they all catch my attention and  seem so luxurious from their external boxes but the one that stands out in form and functionality would definitely be the Je Joue Nuo a remote controlled butt plug and I can safety say it is adorable!   The product shape is much like my beloved Fun Factory Bootie but it has been enlarged and fitted with a super rumbly motor!  Much like the FF bootie, Je Joue Nuo has a rather thick tip that that tapers into a much skinnier neck. The tip is quite solid but the neck is soft an extremely soft and can make insertion difficult but the comfort of having a softer tip is the reward especially for those who are looking to wear for longer periods of time. The vibe its self stands at 4.5 inches and 4 inches is insert-able the circumference at its widest is 4.125 inches.

Je Joue Nuo is covered in a gorgeously smooth silicone which is quiet soft! It features two motors! one in the T base for perineum stimulation and of course one in the body for internal or P spot stimulation! Perfect for girl or boy the Je Joue Nuo‘s base fits snuggly between the cheeks for discretion and can be worn out and about as its powerful vibes are whisper quiet! The Je Joue Nuo only has one button on its base tip and pushing it simply will open it to be connected to the mobile application or pen shaped remote. I’m yet to decide whether the lack of ability to control this toy with out an external device is  positive or a negative! its great that its aesthetic of being a streamlined butt plug covered in soft aubergine silicone with chrome accents is kept by not having a series of buttons on it make up for the possibility my phone could be dead and I’m terrible at keeping things together and the remote would likely be missing.

Sex Toy: Je Joue Nuo


The pen shaped remote is extremely discrete and connection is simple it just requires the user to push the top down for a second and wait for three blue light flickers and your Je Joue Nuo (like most other Je Joue products in this line) will begin to vibrate and indicate that connection has been made! The pen is great for short distance play and has a range of up to 15 metres and has great feedback function. When you adjust the speed or pattern the remote/pen relays the same vibration style back for 5 seconds so that the controller has an idea of what the wearer is receiving. to adjust the speed you twist the top clockwise to heighten or anticlockwise to lower it and to go through the pulse patterns you simply push down the top! In short the pen is a great idea its quite discrete and the feedback is also great for couple play!

The second way of controlling the Je Joue Nuo is with the Je Joue app available on android and apple (check if it is compatible with your phone before you invest in this toy if app capabilities interest you). The app is beautifully created it is very feminine though and the backgrounds are the same as the Je Joue outer boxes. The app is also easy to connect just open it and tap play now and the app will prompt you to turn on Nuo and it will quickly pulse to let you know the app and device have synched. The app is super easy to use anyone with basic phone knowledge could use it! the layout is simple and effective once the device is synched 8 boxes will appear 7 of which are pre-made pulse patterns and the final box is to make and access your own patterns. Once you’ve pressed one of the boxes it will open in a screen where you can adjust the speed from 1 – 5 on the side.

Within the app you can create your own patterns by choosing a premade patterns and splicing them together at different speeds and times! you can email them to your partner as way of sharing. Although to as advanced as we-vibes couples app which is in real time, Je Joue’s email to use patterns are more effective in strengthening intimacy as the users are free to make phone calls or use Skype if it is for long distance use without interrupting the app or having to swap from app to app on phones or tablets.

Other things to mention about Nuo are that it is water proof (the pen is not) and rechargeable (the pen takes 1 x AAA battery).  I’m really loving the new Je Joue stuff the branding is amazing and the silicone is actually the softest I’ve ever felt!


11 Gay Sex Positions

Clothed Sex Positions
I hate two things in this world when it comes to sex, condoms and same, boring, old school vanilla sex. The first one is essential and I never think of not using it during penetration, therefore, there are two things to change which are either the position during intercourse or adding some nice adult toys into your sessions to spice them up. I assume that you’ve already had many toys but don’t worry if you have not, I’ll give you some tips on that case as well in my article but my main mission is explaining 11 Gay Sex Positions that I’ve chosen for you based on both my personal experiences and people’s comments on the positions as there are hundreds of different sex positions available. Speaking of mission, of course, we are grateful to basic positions like missionary or doggy style, however, it is time to move on. And also feel free to share these positions with your straight friends as well because the positions can be adapted easily into heterosexual partners. Last but not least, keep in mind that the positions are ordered by increasing difficulty and please don’t take action without the consent of your partner.
Folded Deck Chair: You can easily move into this one from the missionary position. Simply, the receiver lays on his back and lifts his legs up in the air then the giver gets down on his knees and gives a part of his weight on his hands under one or both of his partner’s knees. After getting into the position, the receiver is free to enjoy his partner’s thrusts without doing anything special, preferably, he can either rub his own penis or scratch/stroke his partner’s body for additional sensations during intercourse. Moreover, the giver can lean on his partner’s legs for deeper penetration or he can also lean back by grabbing onto the receiver’s thighs which allows him to thrust harder. If you think that the position is not good enough to hit the P-spot, you can put a pillow under the receiver’s lower back to provide different angles. In addition, the position allows the giver to use butt plug comfortably during penetration. There are plenty of different anal plugs on the market with or without cock ring and also vibrating ones available. Just have a look.

Fire Hydrant: Here we have another variation of Doggy Style. To get into the position, the receiver should get down on his fours and the giver will be kneeling behind him. While the giver’s legs are between his partner’s legs, he lifts one of his own legs upwards and places his foot on the floor to the receiver’s side. Then, the giver lifts the receiver’s leg and place it on top of his thigh. If the receiver is flexible enough, he can wrap his leg around his partner’s leg or waist and pull him closer to himself. On the other hand, the giver can lean over his partner, however, this puts additional pressure on the receiver’s leg, so the position must be well balanced by both partners. Additionally, it is time for the receivers to release their submissiveness inside them if any available. To help this release, you can use blindfold, mouth gag or something else you like.

Scissors: In this position, the receiver lies on his side and lifts his leg then bends it so that there will be enough space for the giver to reach his partner’s anus. At this point, the giver also lies on his side but his head must be close to his partner’s feet. As a next step, the giver slips his lower leg underneath his partner’s lower leg right by his pubic and puts his own upper leg over his partner’s lower leg so that the receiver’s lower leg will be between giver’s legs. Finally, the receiver will be facing away from his partner and the giver will be facing towards his partner’s back. Lying on the giver’s thigh feels the receiver a bit uncomfortable but once you get into the position, all you need is harmonic thrusts in reverse directions together which means while the giver thrusts forth, the receiver thrusts back. Additionally, the giver needs to provide his own comfort as part of the receiver’s weight is on the giver’s leg, and also he is free to grab his partner’s upper leg to pull himself into the receiver during penetration.

Bumper Cars: Just like in the Crab position, penis flexibility is the key point to this Gay Sex Position as well. So, it is recommended the giver to make sure that his penis is flexible enough prior to getting into the position. To check it, he needs to be able to point his penis downwards towards the ground comfortably while he is standing up and if everything is OK, it is time to strike a pose! The receiver lies down on his stomach with his legs straight and open wide, then the giver lies down on his stomach but facing in the opposite direction with his legs straight and open wide too. Finally, the giver penetrates his partner without overstretching his penis. The receiver’d better be still during penetration because of the delicate nature of this position. On the other side, it is hard to get into this position with small penis but please don’t let it put you off. There are heaps of penis extenders out there so have a look and pick one then have fun!

Suspended Congress: This last one is one of the tricky ones among all of the positions. There are many criteria to be fulfilled, for example the giver has to have strong muscles so that he can balance his partner and himself during intercourse. At this point, it is better for the giver to have a bigger penis than the average for easiness of insertion. On the other hand, the receiver has to be in certain limits of weight for the sake of his partner and he should be flexible enough to stay in the position for a long time. To get into the position, whilst the giver lifts his partner by holding his thighs or by locking his hands beneath his partner’s bottom, the receiver puts his arms around his partner’s neck and grips his partner’s waist by his own thighs. If you think that this position is too easy for to perform, try it in the shower which will be exceptional experience for you. However, I strongly recommend you to have a pair of locking suction handle just to prevent accidents due to slippery surfaces in that case.

Basset Hound:  This position is similar to the gay sex position Doggy Style and allows for deeper penetration, so all you need to do is get down on your knees and hands if you are receiver. Then, lower yourself towards the ground by spreading your knees and pushing your buttock back, spread your elbows out as well to make your chest closer to the ground. Your partner will insert his penis easily when you are in the position. His knees can be placed to either side of your buttocks and also he can spread his knees to get low. You don’t have to do anything as a receiver in this position. Simply, get your position and enjoy his thrusts, you can push yourself back though for harder penetration if you like. He has a few things to do as a giver, for example he can elevate his waist by keeping his knees together so that he stimulates your P-spot more, he can rub your back during intercourse or he can pull you towards himself for harder insertion.

Superman: Taking your shirt off will not be enough to be a superman this time Clark, you had better be totally naked and please don’t mind the world, it has been f*cked already, so it’s your turn now. Simply, lie down on your stomach with your arms stretched in front of you and put your waist to the edge of the bed with your legs hanging over the side. Then, your partner will penetrate you while standing or sitting down on his knees. As a receiver, once you get into the position, it is pretty hard to take action during intercourse  as you are lying down on your stomach and your legs are in the air. Therefore, you can either try lifting your waist to change the penetration angle or use one of bed restraints, let your partner tie you up and literally do nothing. After this point, all your partner needs to do is thrusting in and out by using either his hips or his full body.

Launch Pad: In this position, the receiver lays on his back and the giver penetrates while he is on his knees facing the receiver. Then, the receiver lifts his legs upwards, brings his knees to his chest and puts his soles on his partner’s chest. After that, the giver can lean over his partner easily so that the receiver raises his buttock for deep penetration. Alternatively, the receiver can change his legs’ position like putting them over the giver’s shoulders or bringing both of them to one side. Even if it seems like the giver has the control, the receiver is the one who controls penetration in a way that he can control how deep and fast the penetration will be as his feet are on the giver’s chest. All the giver needs to do in this position is to thrust in and out, basically. However, he is free to adjust his angle to hit the P-spot better.

Crab: The giver lies down on his back with legs stretched and the receiver sits down in his partner’s lap facing him. The receiver should lean backwards with stretched hands behind himself so that he can balance himself in the position. The most important thing is the flexibility of giver’s penis, so once you get into the position the receiver had better move back slowly to prevent any injuries and also the giver should use his legs to control how far the receiver leans back. Still, the receiver generally has the control in this sex position, he gently brings his body up and down and grinds on his partner by thrusting his own buttocks back-and-forth and also rotating his hips gives extra stimulation. Additionally, the giver can contribute to the play by thrusting and grabbing his partner’s hips, grinding him back and forward, and also, he can give hand-job to the receiver easily. The giver can use a masturbator to blow his partner away as this position is really suitable to use it.
Leg Glider: To get into this position, the receiver should lie on his one side again, lets say his left side. Then, he needs to lift his right leg towards the ceiling while the left one is stick to the bed and his leg must point the ceiling straightly. This means that the angle between his legs must be right angle if he is flexible enough to do that. Whilst the receiver’s right leg leans on his partner’s shoulder/chest, the giver sits on his knees by taking the receiver’s left leg between his own legs like riding a horse and he is free to use a whip at this point to hold the receiver’s horses.  The receiver should ensure that he keeps his position without any cramping during intercourse so warming up can be helpful prior to penetration. The giver can hold the base of his partner’s right leg to pull the receiver towards himself so that he can penetrate him deeply and also the giver can change his angle by leaning in all four directions to find the most convenient angle for themselves, however he should be careful about not hurting the receiver.
Teaspoons: This position is derived from Doggy Style so it is easy to get into this position from regular Doggy Style. Simply, the giver gets down on his knees wide open and the receiver faces in the same direction in front of him while getting down on his knees as well. If the receiver has his knees together, the giver can come closer behind him and wrap his arms around him. Therefore, we can easily say that the Teaspoons allows partners to have intimate moments. As a receiver, you can bounce up and down for more thrusts and you can also put your hands around his back or neck while kissing him. Leaning back against him is another option for more intimacy by feeling as much of his body as possible. As a giver, you can give a hand job to your partner during penetration and you can also kiss his lips, neck and back. Just remember, this position is all about intimacy, be gentle and prolong your ejaculation to have more time than usual. If you can’t make it by your own means which is absolutely OK and has a solution, get a cock ring for yourself either from one of our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres or by ordering online on our website which is pretty easy, go back to our home page and write what you need into the search box at the right top of the page e.g. cock rings and get lost in heaps of different kinds of cock rings. Kidding, it is impossible to get lost, thanks to the other reviews about every single item that you can think of on our blog written by professionals in this area, for example cock rings again. There is that same search box on blog page too which means that all information about sex and sex toys is a click away.


Review: Sound Solution IntiMate III 7″ Realistic Dong

The Sound Solution’s IntiMate III 7″ Realistic Dong With Scrotum is a vibrating model also with a suction cup. The Intimate III is a lovely realistic looking dong with a veiny texture, realistic head and nicely textured testicles for external stimulation as well, and comes in three different flesh tones. At 7 inches of insertable length and with a comfortable looking girth and with the realistic features it would be very suitable for newbies as well as those more experienced with using a dildo. I think it’s non-threatening appearing as compared to some of the larger and more fantastical looking dongs.

The suction cup has good strong hold for hands-free play. Just stick the suction cup to any smooth surface (such as a wall or a smooth seat, but you could get more creative) and bounce, thrust and play at your leisure. You can also use it without attaching it to anything, and just guide it with your hands wherever you want it to go. The vibrations on this dong come courtesy of a simple, silver coloured hand-control powered by 3xAA batteries, which attaches to the dong with a cord, so it doesn’t have quite the flexibility of some of the more advanced remote control vibrating toys but on the plus side it would be much harder to lose the controller or have it fall into unexpected hands – eg if you have curious kids around!

It has 3 vibration speeds – low, mid and hi – and it’s very easy to turn on and off. No holding a button down for 3 seconds or working out symbols on multiple buttons, just move the switch from the clearly marked ‘off’ position to whichever speed you would like to experience. The vibrations are not as strong as many of the rechargeable toys, and there are no fancy features like pulses or thrusting but it’s good for simple pleasures. The motor is nice and quiet too. It’s also quite flexible, with just the right amount of firmness, which I personally think is very nice and again lends a familiar and realistic feel.

It is safe as it is phthalate-free, non-toxic and is made from an anti-bacterial additive plastic (ABA formula plastic) for a pleasurably peace-of-mind experience.

Dildos and Dongs are the closest that you can get to the real deal, so why not add one to your toy box? Perfect for playing alone or experimenting with your partner, they could be just what you need to spice things up! Select one modeled from your favorite porn star or make a toy version based on someone you know with the famous Clone-A-Willy.  Dongs and Dildos come in a variety of materials such as silicone, plastic, cyberskin, glass or metal, and come in an assortment of sizes with one just right for you.

Man Shaving Abbs

It can be nerving and a bit scary wielding a sharp razor near your private area, even more when you’re a guy, so if you’re feeling nervous or hesitant about shaving down their then definitely keep reading for some Manscaping information. But why should you remove your manly bush? Maybe  it’s the anxiety and social norm to keep your area smooth and more aesthetically pleasing , maybe it’s what your partner wants or it could the fact that when your pubic hair is gone it makes your erection incredibly larger. You see, When your pubic hair covers up part of the shaft, visually it can seem much shorter but when the hair is gone, the hidden section of the shaft will be revealed and can make your penis look a half inch longer. But, of course you wouldn’t care about that, would you? If you’re still not convinced there are plenty of other benefits that you might not have known about or have heard of before.

A popular reason and important benefit for Manscaping is to the fight on genital hair is simply hygiene purposes. Something not to be forgotten about when it comes to anything genitals really is hygiene. With everything shaved it will be less prone to carrying sweat (so say goodbye to the funky funk in your trunk), it’s easier to keep clean and will stay cleaner for longer which will make your whole area more inviting too. When you’re wearing underwear with a bushy basement then there isn’t much room or oxygen to circulate down there which ultimately means that whatever odours that you do have down there become more pungent and noticeable. Shaving the hair off creates more airflow and a much nicer smelling pubic area.

Manscaping will make your shaft and scrotum look cleaner, but it will be healthier too. Without the obstruction of hair you can take advantage of your newly smooth area to examine your testicles regularly. It’s also peace in mind for your sexual partner/partners; they can be rest assured that they are protected from skin eruptions or unusual bugs. It even gives good evidence that you have nothing to hide down there. It’s not a surprise that even shaving can be considered sexy. Get your partner to help you shave, apply heaps of gel and tease the area with long strokes from the razor. You can even get lathered up with soap in the shower and shave under the warm stream of water for a bit more eroticism.

A shaved pubic region is much less prone to cuts during sex. Sometimes, when sex involves a hairy penis, the hair gets in the way and causes cuts in the genitals or even condoms. These cuts could be open doorways to infections. Eating a few hairs when you are giving oral isn’t really ideal so it’s important to keep downstairs ready for oral pleasure by keeping it hair free. The average woman will be more willing to tongue-please a shaved ‘johnson’ than a bushy one. So if you want to get really intimate, stay well-groomed down there.

Manscaping is simply more appealing. The benefits of having a shaved pubic area will be apparent straight away. A smooth scrotum begs to be touched. An unusual one and slightly related to another benefit is when shaved your preventing unwanted friction and chaffing in you junk. Because hair stores sweet and gunk it’s possible that it can get really hot and build up friction and possible forming of blisters or burns. Will all these benefits you would think anyone with hair is crazy not to remove it but it’s important to recognize that shaving downstairs has its downsides as well. Some women view men with pubic hair as manly and masculine, so the removal of it could feminise you or make you look like a child down there, which is very unappealing to a lot of people. Also keeping its shaved requires dedication and commitment. You have to keep it up if you want the look and to a lot of people that’s just too much time out of game of thrones to be worth it.

Something that everyone can relate to is when you freshly shave somewhere you essentially unleashing 1000 mosquito bites onto that area. The itching can be unbearable for beginners and people with sensitive skin. Sometimes when you cut it all the way it grows back faster, fuller and thicker. Most importantly is that you have to be careful not to castrate yourself, the balls are a sensitive spot and they do not need a razor poking and cutting down there. Manscaping can also cause razor bumps, allergic reactions, rashes and other uncomfortable side effects. Remember safety is important. So at the end of the day you have to make the choice if you want to be bare down there or have hair to spare. I honestly think having it all trimmed is the safest, most hygienic and simply the easiest to upkeep especially if you have one of those electric razors (less risk of cutting your balls off).
