Male Sexual Enhancement Products: Ointments, Creams, & Sprays

male enhancemet productsIf you find that none of the natural methods work, or that cock rings just aren’t your thing, you may want to look into the option of topical ointments. Not only are they usually affordable, but many of them are easy to apply, safe for use with latex (condoms), have a limited span of time in which they’re ‘active’, and come with few side effects.

Whether it’s a cream, balm, spray, brush on liquid or otherwise, each of these products usually work by numbing the area and limiting the amount of stimulation the person in question experiences. Since every body is different, some will work and some won’t. The key is to not judge them all by the same measuring stick and instead experiment with the various options available until you get the desired results. Below I’ve listed some of the different products on the market along with a mini review of each one. Continue reading “Male Sexual Enhancement Products: Ointments, Creams, & Sprays”

Beginners Guide to Butt Plugs

Just like every other sex toy on the market, butt toys come in a wide variety of colours, shapes, sizes and materials, each designed to offer a specific kind of sensation. Some target the p-spot (prostate), others provide a feeling of fullness, some allow you to become comfortable with the idea of having something in your butt, while others penetrate deeply for a fuller feeling, some vibrate for a heightened sense of arousal, while others simply let you safely explore anal play.

Regardless of what you’re into, there is something to suit your needs, it’s just a matter of finding one that works with you and your body. Continue reading “Beginners Guide to Butt Plugs”

Beginners Guide to Cock Rings

Not sure what I cock ring is? Not to worry. This beginners guide to cock rings will help explain everything you need to know.

What Is A Cock Ring?

Cock rings are accessories worn around the base of the penis to extend intercourse by keeping blood trapped inside the shaft of the penis (they also seem to work wonders at making the penis look bigger – I said look, they don’t actually make it longer or bigger). In some cases, they can also be used to help hold a condom in place.

Erections occur when the penis is filled with blood after arousal (click the link to learn more about the Male Sexual Response Cycle). Muscle spasms occurring at the base of the penis cause blood to be trapped and the penis to become hard. When there is a problem with the muscle spasms, the blood flows out and the penis remains soft.  Fortunately for many people a cock ring worn at the base of an erect penis will help prevent the blood from leaving the shaft, thus maintaining a firmer erection.

Whether made of  nitrile, leather, metal, silicone, or otherwise, there are many options available. The challenge is finding one that works with you and your body. Continue reading “Beginners Guide to Cock Rings”

How To Choose A Sex Toy: The Specifics

Following our previous how to choose a sex toy post, which covered the basics, we thought we’d offer a bit more information on some of the options available. Hopefully it’ll help you find something you love.

1.) Know Your Options

traditional vibeA tried and true traditional style vibrator can be good, helping you achieve an orgasm by yourself or with a partner, just keep in mind that many of them usually don’t offer a variety of settings, instead being rather basic. Aside from that they don’t offer much by way of G-spot stimulation since they have a straight shaft with minimal textures. Of course you could very easily hold it against the clitoris for clitoral stimulation, though with all the other amazing products specifically designed for that purpose it seems like a bit of a waste.

Vibrating BulletOn that note, if you like the feeling of vibrations on your clitoris you might want to look at a bullet or vibrating egg, something that cuddles the clit, a vibrator designed to be worn or a “pocket rocket“. Most of these will be smaller in design than a product that’s meant to be inserted and usually come in a variety of vibration options. On top of being easy to use they’re discreet, not very intimidating, affordable (many are available for under $20) and travel rather well. Continue reading “How To Choose A Sex Toy: The Specifics”

How To Choose A Sex Toy: The Basics

Picking your first sex toy, or even your third, fifth, or tenth, can be an extremely frustrating, overwhelming, intimidating experience. As someone who worked in a sex shop trust me I know, I’ve heard it a thousand times.

Before you go on the hunt for a sex toy, here’s a few things to consider as they’ll help keep you from wasting money on something that’s far from what you really wanted.

Know Your Body

If you’re new to sexual exploration and/or don’t know your body very well, you might want to take some time to learn about your anatomy, as well as your personal likes and dislikes. Also, keep in mind that over 70% of ‘female’ bodied individuals require clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm.  Sure, you could buy that cute little vibrator, but it probably won’t be that great if you don’t know what you like and what parts you’re trying to stimulate.

How to Measure Your Bra Size

Believe it or not, at least 80% of women wear an incorrectly sized bra! Most people wear a bra too large in the back and too small in the cups. Although sizing can vary slightly between brands, all follow a basic measurement system that you can use to measure your bra size in the comfort of your own home.

1

Know that cup size is not absolute. This is the biggest myth about bra sizes: that a D cup looks the same on every band size, or that having small breasts automatically means you’re an A cup. Actually, cup size is proportional to band size — meaning it’s dependent on your band measurement. For instance, a 32 D will fill out less volume than a 36 D, but they’re both D cups.
