The 6 Sex Toys & Pleasure Accessories Every Couple Needs

Sex

Last year, while on a sister trip to Paris, my sister and I found ourselves gagging at what we found in the local sex shops after watching a midnight show at the Moulin Rouge.

I was amazed at the number of options available. One of the stores we went in was the size of a department store - think Macy's in Herald Square in New York but full of dildos, sleeves and all of the dominatrix-esque lingerie you've ever seen. As a souvenir, I purchased my first bullet at a whopping $6. What's the point of window shopping at a store like that? My boyfriend and I tried it one night and I was instantly hooked! It became a regular part of our sexual trysts. But not everyone is open to the idea of bringing a third party into their bedroom.

If you've been in a relationship for some time, things can get to be routine. You become so comfortable with each other that the bedroom department can get bland. Who has time to waste for that?! I'm trying to be like Rihanna - sex with me should be amazing! When it comes to intimate time with your mate, I believe in complete freedom. There should be no inhibitions. Using a toy or two to switch things up and add an extra layer of pleasure can do wonders for you and your relationship. So let your hair and walls (pun intended) down with these added trinkets:

Dual Purpose Candles

LELO

Before you graduate to operating your own personal sex dungeon, let's start off small. An easy way to set the mood and incorporate something new into your foreplay routine is a massage. Instead of the usual greasy massage oil, burn one of these dual-purpose candles to scent the room and bring heat to your partner's body, literally and figuratively. Made from all-natural soy wax that's mixed with good-smelling shea butter and apricot kernel oil, it turns into a steamy massage oil. To spice it up, have your man oil your booty while you twerk for him. Get creative!

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways).

Five months into 2022 and already it feels like it has been a year. New levels come with new devils (new stresses) and though we are proud of our accomplishments in the year so far, as a team, to say we aren't in need of a vacay is an understatement.
