One of the easiest ways to turn up the heat in the bedroom is to try a little experimentation. You don’t have to try anything crazy, but there are many simple things you can do to spice things up.
One of the easiest ways to add a little spice to the bedroom is to add a sex toy or accessory. Experimenting with toys can help any relationship in the romance department. However, choosing the right addition can not only be confusing, but can play on the nerves as well. This is a brand new world, and you may feel very inexperienced and intimidated. Don’t let this stop you.
The first time you purchase something in this line may seem scary. There are a few tips that will make this as easy as possible for you.
First, you need to get familiar with what is out there. There are sex toys that come in various shapes and sizes for both men and women. There are also massage oils, costumes and adult games that can add a new layer to your sex life. By being familiar with what is out there, you will feel much more comfortable in an adult store. You may think everyone is staring at you when you get to the cash with an item, but the people there are all there for the same reason.
Sex toys are certainly not as taboo as they may have been years ago. It is becoming more popular as the years pass. There is such a variety of things that you can purchase that it seems like there is something for everyone and every desire. Chances are the couple living next door or even friends and family are using some kind of toy in their sex life. Again, keep that in mind, all the people in there are there for the same reason. Don’t let it scare you.
Large cities and towns tend to have several different shops for you to choose from. You can pick based on the stock they carry or location. If going into a store is still intimidating, you can always become anonymous. Online shopping can be your best friend. You have the time to look over each item, and will eliminate the urge to grab the first item and run to the cash. Try to find a website that has a variety of stock and prices and specializes in this area. Like any online shopping, make sure you choose a reputable website.
One other thing to look for when online shopping for sex toys is to choose a company that lists discretion as one of their priorities. You don’t want to have a box with bright red lettering announcing the contents. Even worse, how will it show up on your credit card statement. Many companies use names for billing purposes that do not indicate the type of purchase you are making.
Don’t be afraid to walk into your local sex store. Ask questions. The people who work in the store have heard everything before and are not going to judge you or think you are a pervert. Instead, they can provide you with a wealth of information, and show you how certain things work. Sex toys are commonplace now. Go to the sex store with your spouse. If you are nervous, try to go at times when they seem to be less crowded, maybe during the day. If you aren’t quite ready to make that step, then sit down with your spouse and start looking online. The anticipation of what will be coming in the mail may help to create the right setting for a romantic evening.
If you plan on sharing your sex toy with a partner, I recommend using a condom to prevent the spread of STD’s and other bacteria, in addition to proper cleaning. When you first receive your adult toy, make sure you clean it prior to using it. In addition, check your toys to make sure there are are no rips in the silicone, rubber, or jelly. Look over your glass and hard plastic toys to make sure there are no cracks. Any tears or cracks in the product can trap bacteria, and cannot be cleaned properly.
Sex Toys Made of Rubber/Jelly – Products that are made of rubber or jelly are porous and can trap dirt and bacteria. You can clean these toys with a gentle anti-bacterial soap and water. If you are going to use anti-bacterial soap, make sure all the soap is gone completely from the product to prevent any damage to the toy or irritation to you.
There are numerous adult toy cleaners on the market that we would advise using that are made specifically to clean sex toys such as Before & After Toy Cleaner and Pjur Med Clean. We do recommend using a condom on these products to ensure the utmost safety. Let air dry or wife with soft cloth.
Sex Toys Made of Silicone – Products made of silicone are non-porous, which means they do not absorb bacteria like jelly toys. Use a sex toy cleaner or gentle anti-bacterial soap and water to clean. Silicone toys that are not battery operated or do not contain an electrical system can be boil for about two minutes. Let air dry or wipe with soft cloth.
Sex Toys made of Hard Plastic or Acrylic – You can use a adult toy cleaner or gentle anti-bacterial soap and water. Let air dry or wipe down with a soft cloth.
Sex Toys Made of Glass, Pyrex, or Stainless Steel – Use a adult toy cleaner or wash with gentle antibacterial soap and water. You can also boil or place your glass or pyrex toys in the dishwasher if they do not contain a battery compartment or any electrical system.
Sex Toys Made of Realistic Materials Such As Cyberskin, UR3, Soft Touch, Futurotic, and Neoskin – These types of materials are typically used in erection rings, male masturbation toys such as sleeves and realistic vaginas. Wash these products with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. After a thorough cleaning, let the product air dry completely. Then, apply a light coating of cornstarch to the product to keep the product maintained and fresh.
With any adult toy, make sure that you store it in a cool, dry area. Avoid direct sunlight and always remove the batteries prior to storing.

We are all becoming more open in our view to sex and the activities we participate in the bedroom, so if you purchased your partner a sex toy for valentines would this be accepted, or thrown in a draw never to be taken out of the package? Or should you just treat her to some sexy underwear or a sexy outfit?
For the men there is no question that we all love to see our woman in her favourite sexy underwear, whether this is sexy bra and knickers, a Basque or maybe a sexy costume. I know that if my partner puts on her sexy outfit she feels good because of the effect on me and what it will lead to.
We all have our preference for sexy lingerie or sexy underwear and we should forget that just a sexy night or chemise will also have the desired effect on both partners.
If you are at the beginning of your relationship you may not need sexy underwear or lingerie to spice up your sex life, and you don’t have to buy a sexy outfit for your partner just because it’s valentines.
For the blokes out there that do not like to go to shops and buy this intimate piece of clothing, or just don’t have the time, then the choice on-line is endless. In fact the choice of sexy underwear, lingerie, sexy nightwear and sexy costumes is so vast; the question becomes what is your budget and can you stick to it or will you just blow the budget completely and treat your partner more than you intend?
The sex toy market has exploded in recent years. So much so that the traditional vibrators which were initially just a vibrating piece of latex in the shape of a penis are a little boring when you look at what else is on offer.
If you think the choice of lingerie and sexy underwear is vast, then prepare to have your mind blown when you look at the range of sex toys.
The early days of the sex toy market was focused on the women who needed a little something extra when not in a relationship or while the partner was working away.
Nowadays the sex toy market is not just for women on their own, but men can get sex toys that they can use if not in a relationship, and is a more stimulating solution than masturbation alone.
The more liberal we are becoming in our sexual attitude and endeavours see’s the choice of adult sex toys that can and are used by both female and males.
If you are using or going to use a sex toy for the first time, whether male or female then I would advise the use of some oil or lube to start with. Not only does the oil or lube enhance the feeling, but it also make for more fun when rubbing into your partner.
So how would you feel if you received a sex toy for valentines or would you prefer to receive sexy underwear instead? Whichever your choice the ideal gift is available online at online adult stores where the choice is vast and the delivery is discreet and convenient.

Maybe you’ve never been to an adult book store, but you are ready to get that dildo or vibrator of your dreams. Some of you might have made trips to those raunchy stores in the past and are looking for an alternative. Before you head to your local sex toy store, let’s go over the pros and cons of buying that perfect dildo, rabbit, or butterfly vibrator online.
Like most online shopping; a pro of buying your sex toys online, is that normally you can find better deals, sales, and coupons online. Very rarely can you find these deals in local shops; in fact they are sometimes double the price. The other advantage to buying your sex toys online is that you will have access to a large range of reviews by real people. Doing the proper research before blowing your money on your new vibrating friend is the smart thing to do. Heaven forbid you buy that new butterfly vibrator, or dildo and it doesn’t hit the spot for you!
Besides the obvious, it’s just more comfortable to shop online from home. Not that I am bounding you to your house by any means, but this isn’t like shopping for a new pair of sneakers. You will be more discreet and private when buying those intimate toys at home. Shopping online will allow you to share your inner thoughts and secret comments with your lover, as you sit side by side finding that perfect toy to make you explode.
Most of the online sex stores you find will now allow you to return your items if there is any problem! This is great news my friends, because most local shops will not take any returns. Although returning items might be a pain, taking the time to prepare and mail out the package. You won’t be feeling so bad when your new functioning or exchanged vibrator, dildo, or butterfly vibrator is buzzing.
My only personal con to shopping online for sex toys would be seeing how the toy functions in person. For me the intensity of vibration is extremely important. Thankfully now a lot of stores offer videos of products to give you an idea. We displays great videos of all of their products that have motion. In addition to videos reading the reviews can give you a good idea on how the product functions, intensity, etc. Plus, just watching how your new toy works and vibes might get you a little excited! So enjoy!
Overall I think that it would be better to make your purchase for that hot new butterfly vibrator, right in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to compare prices, look for discounts, and do it all while you’re sitting in your panties. Not only that but you will be keeping private, there is no reason why you need to run into your old high school gym teacher at the porno shop. So get your booty online, and find that dream toy!
