Beginner Anal Play Products

Pipedream Anal Products

I have recently had many customers wanting to try anal play for the first time in their lives. Those were mostly straight guys coming into the store with their wives/girlfriends and they were a bit intimidated by the size and variety of anal toys. If they had known about the orgasms by prostate stimulation, they would have regretted that they were being too late for anal play. Better late than never though.

Firstly, if you are sure that you want to experience your first anal play with a vibrating toy this article will not be an answer to your questions. I am planning to talk about three different Anal Play Kits which are non-vibrating from 3 different well-known companies on the market. Of course, we have a wide range of vibrating butt plugs in the shop as well, so either stay tuned for the next articles or come into the store to get informed by our lovely team. The latter is more favourable though. I am not going to tell you how to use the toys, yet I must say that the most important things in anal play are to be slow, get aroused madly and use plenty of lubricant. Otherwise, you won’t enjoy the feeling and will end up having a frustrating experience. We don’t want it to be happening to you. So, if we are happy with those rules, let’s move into today’s staff recommendations on anal play.

1. Beginner’s Fantasy Kit Anal Fantasy Collection by Pipedream
This kit is comprised of 5 different anal toys and 2 auxiliary products. The material used in the toys is a mixture of PVC, ABS Plastic and Nylon. At first glance, this may seem as a drawback, yet the toys are completely phthalate free, body safe and you are free to use any kind of lubricant with them. The distinctive feature of this kit is its variety of the products inside the package anyway. So, let’s have a closer look at them.
  • Classix Prostate Stimulator: This toy is to hit your P-spot very well with its curved bulbous shaped tip and textured shaft. It has 11.4 cm insertable length with 3.8 cm width and a little protrusion aiming for your perineum at the same time. There is a handle at the bottom for easy grip which will be pretty useful for new starters. The toy itself is very firm and not bendable at all which makes the insertion easy.
  • Beads: There are 5 beads having a diameter of 2 cm which are connected to each other with a cord and there is a ring at the end to pull the beads out easily. The cord seems pretty strong so don’t worry about the possibility of rupture.
  • Beaded Probe: Beads are a bit bigger than the previous one (a diameter of 2.5 cm in average) and it is a complete probe this time. It has 10 beads (28 cm) which are in decreasing order in diameter. The beads are firm but the probe itself is bendable enough to find the correct spot to hit.
  • Finger Sleeve: This sleeve is 7.6 cm in length and 2.5 cm in width which will fit either your index or middle finger, at least fits mine perfectly. It has nubs on it, so fingering yourself has not been joyful this much before.
  • Plug: This little plug would be my first choice to try if I bought this kit. It is 9.5 cm in length and 2.5 cm in width. The material is not that firm and the toy itself is bendable enough. Additionally, flared base at the bottom prevents the toy from going further in your rectum.
The kit comes with 2 gloves, toy cleaner, anal desensitizing cream, lubricant and 2 rubber finger sleeves which are almost everything you need to have a happy ending.
2. Anal Trainer Kit Colt Gear by California Exotic Novelties
Anal Trainer Butt Plugs
Sex Toys: Anal Trainer Kit Colt Gear by California Exotic Novelties
Most parents buy their children shoes or jackets one size bigger to use them in the following year as well till their kids stop growing. This kit reminds me of that due to its gradually increasing size of plugs. The kit includes 3 different butt plugs which are made of rubber but no latex and phthalate free. Each of them has flared base to use them without any hesitation about losing toys inside rectum. The smallest one is 10.25 cm in length and 2.5 cm at its widest point, which is simply the very bottom of the toy. The medium butt plug is 12 cm long with a diameter of 3.25 cm at the widest point again. These two plugs are suitable for new starters for sure as the tapered tip with thin insertion is not intimidating at all for a newbie. On the other hand, whilst the material is firm, the toy itself is bendable enough especially compared to the toys from Anal Fantasy Kit. When it comes to the third one; apparently, this is not for a beginner. The largest butt plug has 15.25 cm insertable length with a diameter of 4.5 cm so I would rather say this plug is perfect for the ones who enjoyed the course Introduction to Anal Play 101 and want to attend the course Anal Play for Intermediates 102 in the second semester for further insertions. The professor at university is the same and the exams will be held anally again. So, there is no reason not to get A+ climax in the following course as well.

2. Anal Explorer Kit by California Exotic Novelties

Anal Douche and Sex Toys
Sex Toy: Anal Explorer Kit by California Exotic Novelties
There are two things making this kit different from its counterparts which are the material selection and the douche included in the kit. I think putting a douche into an anal play kit is a good idea in terms of beginners who are afraid of uncleanliness of the area. Shortly, a douche is used to clean your rectum before anal penetration and there are many types of douches on the market for the convenience of the users. The one in the kit is the simplest douche though which is a squeezable bulb and its thin attachment for comfy insertion. Simply, fill it with warm water (not too cold, not too hot) inset the tip into your anus gently after lube it up. Squeeze the bulb so that the water can go into your rectum, hold it for 20-30 seconds then release it into the toilet. Repeat the procedure till the fresh water comes out. For further information, you can refer to other articles on our blog pertinent to this topic.
On the other hand, there are two different butt plugs in the kit which are made of silicone body safe material. One of them is a graduated beads probe with a hook at the bottom which allows you to grip the toy easily and prevents the toy from going further in your rectum. It is 11.5 cm in length and its curved shape aims to hit P-spot perfectly. The other one is a tapered probe with suction cup at the bottom. It has 10.75 cm insertable length and its flared base makes your penetration safe. Both are suitable for beginners to take them to the next step.

After all these things, I should say that I would buy number three if I was a beginner but I am not, and every person is different, so is every arse. Make your own choice freely because you can’t go wrong with any of those products above for sure.

Review: Blewit! Masturbator

Blewit! Masturbator Mens Stroker

I’m especially fond of male masturbators. I love them they are squishy, bumpy, ribbed and always so delightfully textured! The creators of Blewit have strategically made this product extremely masculine with their colour scheme but they have also made the product welcoming to all men of any sexuality or age. The lack of anatomically correct opening or lingerie clad bodies on the outer packaging makes this product perfect for the couple or solo masturbator. The Blewit! Masturbator is less of a fantasy object and more of a pleasure training tool which makes this product especially easy to introduce into the bedroom as a fun addition to spice up any standard routine.

Blewit are very dedicated to marketing their notion of ‘mindful masturbation’ as opposed to what they called ‘mindless masturbation’. According to Blewit ‘s creator mindless masturbation is a learned behaviour in your adolescent years. Mindless masturbation is goal orientated, rushed due to the sense of urgency and desire not to get caught. The Blewit! Masturbator it claims to help users become more mindful when masturbating with the Blewit as it mimics real life sex more closely than a hand.  Blewit encourages users to review how they masturbate, slow down and focus on their body’s responses and how different types of stimulation affects your body. You can take these newly learned sensations and responses and communicate them to your partner. This masturbator is the perfect tool to for increasing confidence in the bedroom as regular use can help users to increase their sexual stamina. The increased stamina and confidence boost can help some people get over their sexual dysfunction or performance anxiety. The CEO of Blewit has designed a program called Controlit! and has built up an online community of mindful masturbators sharing tips and tricks in regards to mindful masturbation and men’s health issues.

Whilst all that performance training is happening in the background, Blewit! Masturbator is first and foremost an object made for men’s pleasure and self-indulgence! The sleeve has a multi textured channel of various sized nodules which stimulates from tip to base trying its best to closely mimic real life sex acts.  The internal sleeve is a series of bumps and indents with ridges just past the non-gender specific opening. Whilst the internal pattern may not be as intricate as some of the other male masturbators on the market such as the Tenga flip holes, Blewit   has added some bells and whistles to their product to make sure their product caters to all masturbators.  Blewit  has introduced features to their product to make yourself love a little more customizable.  There are two included rings which attach behind the entrance of the sleeve to provide tight or extra-tight stimulation. There is a two aspects to Blewit! Masturbator suction control first there is a quick-flip cap that allows or restricts airflow through the unit and there is the cap which can be unscrewed or completely removed allowing the user to find the right internal pressure.

After use the Blewit! Masturbator can be cleaned up within minutes! All that needs to be done is to remove the suction control cap and run hot water from the faucet through the sleeve and out of the grate at the bottom (also the suction end!). Unlike other hard cased mastubators where the sleeve can be removed and flipped inside out to be cleaned and air dried leaving the sleeve susceptible to catching dust and lint Blewit has an attached internal sleeve which keeps it foreign particle free. To help the drying process the suction vent unscrews and the base becomes a vented drying dock. Owners of the  Blewit   will occasionally need to use corn starch or a renewing powder on their product to help remove the tackiness of the external part of the sleeve and there is a powdering dish provided to make the clean-up and care of the  Blewit   much more easier and convenient. The sleeves material has also been lightly scented so that it always smells fresh!

The internal sleeve of the Blewit! Masturbator is made of thermoplastic elastomer, a blend of plastic and rubber which is semi-porous. To combat the potential bacteria growth inside the internal sleeve due to the semi-porous nature of TPE the creators of Blewit it have added antimicrobials.  The TPE sleeve is encased in an aqua capsule which is discretely shaped and easily mistaken for shampoo bottles, air fresheners or Bluetooth speakers. The octagonal shaped case makes is ergonomic for both left and right handed people of all sizes, the rubberized exterior also helps to keep a firmer grip if hands become lubey.

Blewit does have their specially branded lubricant aptly named Lubeit! But the Tenga Hole lotions have a much easier delivery system especially for enclosed masturbation sleeves such as the blewit as it has a nozzle which can be squeezed directly into the Blewit. Hole lotion also comes in 4 types mild, wild, solid and natural

The Blewit team have spared no luxury when designing this product and it hasn’t stopped at the packaging either! The Blewit! Masturbator colour scheme is certainly eye catching when on the wall as its black background and bright aqua blue illustration really standout on the information slip. Once the slip is removed the Blewit is stored in a black heavy cardboard box which is opened on the side and inside you will find the Blewit extremely secured so there is no damage or future damage as it can be used as a super discrete storage box!

Review: King Cock Strap on Harness

King Cock Strap on Harness with Dildo

Today, was my first time seeing the King Cock Strap on Harness and because I reviewed the king cock ejaculating dildo when it came in store I feel like I definitely need to review the harness! Now, I’m going to be completely honest, as tempting as it is and as awesome as it looks I won’t be purchasing it for myself for two reasons. Firstly, the King Cock Strap on Harness isn’t my style as it’s a thong strap harness and I’d prefer one that covers my bum. Secondly, as I told you in my Fun Factory Harness review I’m personally not a huge fan of realistic dildos, I want my dildo to look the least penis like as possible! I won’t lie though, my first thought was, if I ever wanted to experience a penis this would be absolutely perfect as it’s soft, has realistic veins and the head is spot on. I’ll probably end up giving the King Cock Strap on Harness a shot in the near future and if I do, you’ll definitely get to read about my experience.

The King Cock Strap on Harness on caters for all, from the beginners up to the more experienced dildo users. In store at the moment we have three s to choose from, 6″, 7″ and 8″ but it comes with three different sized O rings (30, 40, 50mm) that you can change around easily with your velcro straps and that allows you to change around the dongs/vibratos you’d like to fit in your harness which I find amazing, this saves you money! You won’t have to buy a new harness for a long time, especially if you’re a beginner you’ll be able to use this harness throughout the whole process of you up-sizing your dongs.

Sex Toy: King Cock Strap on Harness

 

The King Cock Strap on Harness is fully adjustable, it will fit someone up to 52 inches in the waist so if you have a partner who isn’t exactly the same size as you there’s no need to worry about buying a harness each because this one should fit most sizes. Once you’ve adjusted it with your velcro straps and it fits you comfortably you shouldn’t have any problems with the harness moving around and making your dildo flop around like a fish out of water, it’s a sturdy harness and will stay attached in any position you decide to go in.

You have two options with your King Cock Strap on Harness, you can either use it as a strap on or you can use your dildo for single use as it has a suction cup at the bottom that should stick to any flat surface and it is waterproof so you do have the option of using it in the shower! (please be careful! Sure it’s all fun and games till someone slips and ends up with a dildo in their eye!)

I absolutely love pipedream as they always include a small bottle of lubricant and toy cleaner with their sex toys. I always recommend toy cleaner when I sell any toy and a lot of my customers turn around and say “Gosh, I didn’t even think about that” so I really like that they promote and remind their buyers that toy cleaner exists and should be used every time before and after you use a toy, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU’RE SHARING!! But what they’ve included won’t last more than two uses so i definitely recommend purchasing a bottle of water based lubricant and toy cleaner with it because lets be honest we all get a little bit lazy sometimes and if you don’t walk into an adult shop on a regular basis you probably won’t want to drive down and grab another one  once you’ve run out, it also saves you a bit of money on petrol if you just grab it all at the same time. I recommend wet stuff as there’s plenty of different water based lubricants to choose from and their toy cleaner allows you to leave it on the toy when you’re not using it.

All in all I think it looks like a fantastic harness and would definitely be worth giving a try!

Enjoy and be safe my friends

Urethral Sounding For Women

Cock Plug

Until yesterday I had no idea that women used urethral sounds. Sounding, in case you don’t know, is the stimulation of the urethra with a probe. It is done medically to remove obstructions. The urethra is extremely sensitive and sounding is popular among  people seeking a different kind of erotic sensation.The object for men is usually to stimulate the prostate (an erogenous area for a lot of men). Prostate massage more often takes place from the other side,from within the anus and it is interesting to have the sensation from the other side.  What then, could a woman possibly get from this practice, being as she doesn’t have a prostate. As soon as I looked it up it made sense. As some of us  know, the clitoris is not just the small bump on the outside of our body, it is like an iceberg, most of it is under the surface, Therefore, sounding has the same possibilities for women as it does for men, stimulating erogenous zones from a different angle.

Women say that sounding while masturbating can produce  orgasms that are incredibly intense and seem to originate from a different part of the body. Letting someone else do it to you can be an incredible act of surrender and trust. that is why it is popular in the BDSM scene.

The female urethra is incredibly fragile and it is much shorter and tighter than a man’s so this is not the kind of play you can just try out with out using the correct tools for the purpose.  You have to use objects specifically designed for the purpose and you start off small. The goal for most is usually to stretch the urethra so that larger objects and different sensations can be felt.

 

Vagina Labelled Diagram
Diagram: Vagina Anatomy

 

Some people aim to insert a little finger so that the clitoris can be masturbated in unison. Some want to accommodate a Princess Albertina piercing. (the equivalent of the male Prince Albert) The Princess Albertina passes through the urethra and exits at the top of the vagina. Whatever the aim. start with the smallest probe you can. It should be completely smooth with a rounded end, the wall of the urethra is extremely fragile. Many sounds have small  ridges  to prevent over insertion. This is not so much of a problem for women as it is for men, as the female urethra gets very narrow when you have gone as far as you should and pressure can be felt as the bladder is approached. There isn’t any reason to ever try to  push further as there is no improved sensation and there  is a  chance you may end up puncturing the  bladder. It really isn’t worth the risk.

Absolutely  everything you use must be meticulously sterilized. Lots of lube is needed and it should only be medical grade, like surgilube. It is better still if you can get it in individual packets. If this isn’t possible always drip a little of the lube from the tube in case the top has been contaminated. It is so easy to get a urinary tract infection from unwanted bacteria up there. and infections can quickly spread to the kidneys which can end up being really serious. If you have stretched wide enough to accommodate a little finger then you need to file your nails smooth and clean clean and clean some more. Have anti bacterial sprays or wipes for the sounds during play.

Never stretch further than you are ready.  The urethral opening looks tiny but it is larger than you would think. It opens up more when aroused so to get the best results from sounding it is best to be near to orgasm but not quite. The chances of experiencing orgasm the first time are slim. the sensations take some getting used to, and stretching is a slow process. It might feel like you want to pee, it is best if you urinate before the start of play  and afterwards too if you can, not only to empty your bladder, but to flush out your urethra. It is actually good practice to urinate after any sex for the same reason.

Never put anything in your urethra that hasn’t been designed for the purpose. Always use a sound that is long enough not to get lost in there. If you like it, you can always get the Princess Albertina I mentioned, the piercing massages the many sensitive spots inside the urethra and can be very arousing if you gently tug the jewelry or rub your clitoris.  Hope this helps those women who want to try urethral sounding.

Sexual Response Cycle & Head-Space

Sexual activity is a physical expression. This might seem obvious but have you ever stopped and considered the different types of sexual activity that you have experienced throughout your life? This article aims to unpack some of these concepts in an attempt to understand desire, lust and the concept of people’s mind frames or their head space within sex. We will quickly discover in just a few sentences the complexity of sex and that’s even without acknowledging the diversity of sexuality. We often think of sex as just sex, but have we considered breaking it down into facets.

If we break down sex into facets we must look at the level of passion we approach sexual activity with primal instinct, desire, lust and passion. The type of sexual activity whether it’s sex, intimacy or the importance of combining sex and intimacy together. Then we look at the length of sexual activity whether it’s a quick-y in a car or a long drawn out sensual love making. The love making session that may begin in the bathroom which progresses to the hallway and finishes in the bedroom. How did the sexual desire come about? Was it through being spontaneous or responsive to your environment and social cues.  There are gender differences in sexual activity including the activeness of the penis, the perceived passivity of the vagina or anus, masculinity with male sexuality, femininity with female sexuality and the gender division or contrast between these thoughts.

Research once reinforced the clichéd notion that a man’s desire and sexual response was always in an active state. In comparison to the woman that had to be ‘in the mood’ to engage with a sexual response which was said to be in an inactive state. According to Esther Perel in her article “Men’s Sexual Desires vs Women” published in Psychologies, the research towards sexual response in women was seven times higher than studies conducted on the male sexual responses. The research reinforced the idea that men were always in the mood. This study placed men under greater pressure to perform in the bedroom.

Modern studies examined the mental state of both men and women in regards to sexual responses. They more accurately examined a male’s sexual desire, not in comparison, but with, the sexual desire of women. Male sexual performance is often tied into their relationship with their sense of masculinity. Previous ideologies would centre on the notion that an erection would indicate sexual readiness, sexual desire. When in fact, a males physical arousal is not the same as a sexual desire. This is supported by the idea that a man can obtain an erection whilst being raped or when a male sex worker who does not need sexual desire to maintain an erection or the natural occurring erections in young boys.

There is new research with a relatively new concept labelled “Spontaneous vs Responsive Desire” which is changing how we think about male and female sexuality. There is still a long way to go to dispelling notions regarding the relationship between spontaneous and responsive desire. Below is a table from The Dirty Normal that shows the difference between Spontaneous vs Responsive Desire.

Spontaneous Desire

Responsive Desire

  • Sexual desire feels like it appears “spontaneously” out of the blue
  • Totally normal and healthy
  • Culturally sanctioned as the “expected” desire style
  • May include more frequent desire for sex .
  • May include desire in a wider range of contexts
  • May feel like “too much” desire, in a negative context
  • Sexual desire emerges only in an erotic context, after sexy things start happening.
  • Totally normal and healthy
  • Culturally medicalized as “low” desire.
  •  May include less frequent desire for sex – less than once a week in most contexts
  • May include more context-sensitive desire, preferring things to be “just right”
  • May feel like “no desire,” in a context that hits the brakes

There is still a long way to go to dispelling notions regarding the relationship between spontaneous and responsive desire with general practitioners prescribe medication for anyone with low desire. There has also been a push in the health market for a female version of Viagra. There are a multitude of companies offering pills, potions and remedies to increase sexual desire. This leads to two questions:

What is a sexual desire? Why is it considered to be so important?

The idea heralded as ‘successful sexual activity’ is gaining physical arousal through penetrative sex that leads ultimately to an orgasm. This idea has little to no thought in regards to mental arousal through intimacy and trust which can lead to the highest level of emotional and passionate sex. Both forms of arousal can produce a physiological responses including an erection, swelling of the nipples, clitoris and vulva. For both sexes, there is an increase in heartbeat, blood pressure and rapid breathing. Does this indicate that sex is being in the moment though?

The BDSM scene has had an insight into this with the idea of that being in an “head space” is imperative to a scene. What being in a head space entails is an altered psychological state which is induced by adrenaline and endorphin spikes that often occur during a scene. Often the scene manifests into specific actions, feelings and thought processes which may or may not normally exist outside that scene. The practice often prepares the body for the activity that is occurring, or about to occur depending on the scene. The ‘head space’ is a crucial aspect to the enjoyment of a scene and immersing one’s self into the activity taking place. This is known as being “in the zone” or being in the “in the moment”. Surely such an ideology can transcend into sexual practices? If each individual has a different head space that they use when they experience sex, it can lead to them experiencing a different type of sex. If we consider it, this would explain the idea of emotional sex, passionate sex, lustful sex, primal sex and the variety of different activities that occur. It could also explain the idea of masturbatory regret. For example, masturbatory regret is the idea that an individual feels shame and embarrassment at the type of sexual stimulation that they were using in the quest to achieve sexual climax. In BDSM and fetishes head space is something that can occur with any of the individuals within a specific scene. Head space is often labelled by their role in the scene. For example, subspace, top space, dom space, pony space and puppy space.

Porn has disrupted the idea of being in a head space by demonstrating specific actions and verbal cues as ‘common’ pornographic behaviour. A person involved in a particular head space during sexual activity may unconsciously growl, moan, drool, provide aggressive physical stimulation such as slapping. These types of have become associated with standardised porn behaviour many people will force behaviour rather than being in an head-space thus never accomplishing a truly immersive experience into the sexual activity. Think of the common porn scenario which results in one of the partners being aggressively slapped in an effort to spur on and demonstrate sexual arousal. Whilst one person may never do this outside of sexual activity, during a heightened state of sexual arousal they may become inclined to physically manifest that desire in a primal-like expression.
