Toys for Couples


How can we make sex more fun? Okay, so nobody really asks that because sex is just about the most fun thing you can do in this lifetime. Seriously, how can we take the most fun thing we can do and make it better? Make it so that she gets off every time? Most woman need a little help, some don’t need any. I actually do need help during sex to get off. I have a few go-to toys that work consistently and are easy to use.

First, and my favorite, is the small powerful clitoral vibe. There are plenty to choose from. Like power? Try a RO-88mm Bullet.  For less than $30, this vibe has tons of power and it is small enough to fit between two bodies. There are loads of other small clitoral vibrators that can be used at the right moment to enhance an orgasm for her and make it extra fun for him as well. I actually keep a few clitoral toys on hand next to the bed. They are always ready to go and there are a few of them just in case one loses power before I get off. These toys are small and can easily be hidden. Most of them are waterproof and easy to clean.

Cock rings are another option and they can be fun for both partners. If you have the right ring at the right angle. I really like the LELO Tor II but honestly it can be too tight on some men. Also, it has a big price tag. Fit is really important. The guy would have to enjoy a cock ring, some men don’t. The Sonic Ring Kit would be a good one to start out with. It is inexpensive and has a removable vibrator if all else fails. If you have never tried a ring, give it a go. You never know how much it can add to the experience.

There are some vibrators that work during sex without having to be worn by the male. The We-Vibe is an example of those types of vibes. The woman wears them and it vibrates the clitoris and the g-spot. Hands free stimulation so he (or she) can still penetrate. Positioning is really important and not all women will be able to enjoy this much if the fit isn’t right. The vibrations might not be powerful enough for some women. When this vibe works it is magical, but when it doesn’t it is a big ole waste of money.

I did not mention any g-spot toys in this because I only want to highlight toys that (hetero) couples can use during intercourse. If a couple is into anal play there are also loads of those type toys on the market. Most can be worn during sex (in either partner) to help make the most fun thing we do, even better. For anal toys I caution people to be real careful with materials. You really don’t want to play with something in that orifice that can’t be sterilized. Silicone and glass are at the top of my list of safe materials. Silicone is somewhat better for first times since it usually has some kind of give. Silicone is easy to clean with a 10% bleach solution and can even be boiled for 3 minutes to sterilize. For anal play something like the Silk is a good first time toy. The nice thing about this toy is the flared base making it less likely get lost. Once you get more experience a butt plug is great during sex. Most plugs are designed to stay in as long as care to wear it. Also, most toys can be felt by the man through the vaginal wall.

I hope this helps you figure out where to start. There are a lot of options. Babeland has a number of guides that will show you where to start if you still have questions.

The Strange and Unusual History of the Vibrator

Social Acceptability Of Sex Toys

2012 has seen sales of sex toys soar through the roof. With the hugely popular ’50 Shades of Grey’ storming through the bestsellers charts, online retailers of all things pleasurable have been feeling the heat, with products they guarantee will take the place of diamonds as girl’s best friend. Whilst jiggle balls and handcuffs have seen massive increases in popularity, the classic or rabbit vibrator is still considered the most popular sex toys among many women, available in many shapes, sizes and textures. Gone is the embarrassment that came with admitting you owned a sex toy, with women everywhere – whether in a relationship or single – taking charge of their own sexuality.

Origins Of The Vibrator

It’s a far leap from the humble beginnings of vibrators. The vibrator was invented in the eighteen hundreds to tackle ‘hysteria’, the female disease which had been diagnosed by Hippocrates and which had had little update since. More than one in four women were said to have the disease with symptoms that could encompass everything from fatigue to stomach cramps, and the most effective cure was ‘hysterical paroxysm’ – otherwise known as ‘orgasm’. Other cures included sensory deprivation and removing yourself from anything too taxing, but pelvic massage was often considered the most successful. Whilst it’s tempting now to see this as sexual deviancy, it seems the doctors of the late 1800′s were less than happy about the application of this treatment.

Until the vibrator was invented, the unfortunate doctors of those days found themselves overwhelmed with women diagnosed with the disease, and they’d suffer cramps in their hands as they spent hours ensuring they cured the women of their illness using pelvic massage. By 1870, a clockwork vibrator was invented and the physicians found themselves cured of their problems, and overbooked with patients.

Commercial Release Of The Vibrator

It took many more years for vibrators to be used outside the doctor’s office, but in 1900 they were finally released as a retail product. It became the fifth electrical appliance to be released for consumer use after the sewing machine, fan, kettle and toaster and was released years before household necessities such as the electrical vacuum or iron. However, in the days when ‘female hysteria’ was still considered a valid illness, it would have been embarrassing and very much frowned upon to admit to owning one of these devices for anything other than medical purposes. Therefore, they were marketed as body massages offering to cure anything from headaches to asthma.

The Sexual Revolution

It wasn’t until the sixties that vibrators started being accepted as a form of female masturbation in a previously prudish society. Whilst they still carried a certain amount of stigma, being seen as a lesser form of pleasure than intercourse, women now found themselves investigating facets of their sexuality in a less judgmental age, where masturbation was not something to be frowned upon or discussed only in a doctor’s office but something to be enjoyed in the home.

By the seventies, vibrators were marketed to women as a sex aid and since then women have been taking responsibility for their own pleasure. As the use of vibrators became more and more mainstream, with hit television shows such as Sex and the City praising them, women have become more and more comfortable in the purchase of these gadgets to the point where now, in 2012, they are openly discussed on television and purchased not only by women but by couples worldwide looking to spice up their love life. No matter why they were invented, women the world over are reaping the benefits.
