At this time of year, our minds turn to selecting the perfect gift for the special people in our lives. Sweaters, scarves, gloves, books and electronics head the list of the most common Holiday gifts for #couples. But if you are like me, or any woman of a certain age, you have probably received more of these items than you can ever use. And for the men in your lives, they probably haven’t worn the tie you bought last year. So this year consider giving the gift of pleasure! Though I believe that even a jar of peanut butter is capable of adding spice to your #sex life, finding that jar in your Christmas stocking may not be such a turn-on! So here is my sexy list of sensual playthings and stocking stuffers for the special person in your life.
Edible massage oil. Who wouldn’t enjoy a full body massage followed by warm moist kisses covering all of your erogenous zones? Drop this into his stocking with xxx-rated instructions.
Couples toy. My favorite is the Babeland duet cock ring. Slip this on his erect penis prior to intercourse. Turn it on and ride to multiple intense orgasms!
Oral sex simulator. For the woman who feels that she is not getting enough oral pleasure (and that seems to be 99% of us!) this is an amazing toy. Slip a hint to your partner and maybe you will find this under the tree. Or buy it for yourself. Sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do! It’s expensive, but worth every penny.
Nooky lube. The name says it all! Every woman over the age of 30 needs to have lube at the bedside. Lube is a necessity for all women at various times and can be a sexual enhancer for everyone. It can be used to prolong foreplay and to increase sensations during intercourse or hand-play.
Hip Hop vibrator. This vibrator is so cute that you can leave it on your coffee table and no one would know that it was an adult toy! Not that I would ever suggest such a thing. It stimulates all of the clitoris, from the head and body to the two legs. This is a great toy for women who have difficulty experiencing orgasm. Almost guaranteed to bring pleasure!
Dual vibrator. A step above the rabbit, the Je Joue Fifi is the ultimate toy for women. It stimulates inside and out. The experience can be intense, so put on your seat belt and enjoy the ride!
Restraints. Recent studies show that domination is the most common fantasy for women. Slap these on your partner’s wrists and let your fantasy, or theirs, run wild!
Pelvic floor exercisers. Add these Luna Beads to your kegel exercise routine for maximum benefit. After several months of regular use, you will notice stronger pelvic floor muscles, more intense orgasms and greater pleasure.
Finger vibe. This slips on any finger to take a hand job, yours or his, to the next level of pleasure. Provides easy access to his g-spot.
Game for Lovers. A great way to introduce romance, #intimacy and new sexual experiences into your relationship. Enough fun to last a complete year!
