‘I’ve got the toys to turn your body out,’ cooed New Power Generation vocalist Elisa Fiorillo on Love Machine, a track from Prince’s 12th album, Graffiti Bridge.
Of course, Prince was a veteran of the vagina and a master in the bedroom so we’d all do well to take note – sex toys take things to another level of multiple orgasms.
For example, a butt plug can fulfill a woman’s fantasy of being taken by two men simultaneously. and, at the same time, tightening the vagina for him.
And a dog collar can be decorative or the source of humiliation.
My personal favourite is the feather tickler – it has me bouncing off the ceiling in an insatiable frenzy of sexy fun.
If you haven’t tried a toy before, use lashings of lubricant, don’t be shy and don’t play the part of a shadow – let your inhibitions go and let it drink you till dawn.
1. Erotic literature
Get in the mood with some seductive literature.
Forget 50 Shades and go with something classic, such as Georges Bataille’s ‘Story of the eye’ – a study of human desire.
2. Dog collar
Make sure it has a ring on the front to lead you to the bedroom and don’t forget to get on your hands and knees.
3. Molecule 1
Use fragrance that works with your pheromones like Escentric Molecules’ Molecule 1, which is now widely available.
Tribute 8 do a wonderful homage version for a fraction of the price.
Get back to basics with a classic dildo.
We all know and love the Rampant Rabbit for its added clit stimulation and if you haven’t tried it yet head to Ann Summers.
5. Vibrating butt plug
Slightly less known but profound nonetheless.
6. Gagging ball
Give in to humiliation with a ball strapped to your mouth – the ultimate in dom/sub role play.
7. Feather tickler
Be a tease after the strip with a feather tickler to drive your partner to the brink of ecstasy.
8. Nipple and clit clamps
Pinch the nipples and clitoris for some pleasurable pain.
9. Leather paddle
If you’ve been a terribly naughty girl or boy and insist on being punished, try a leather paddle to teach you a lesson.
10. Latex mittens
For some fetish couture, try some black latex gloves and go fingerless to allow full ‘Roman fingers’ (or finger’s that roam).
11. Hand cuffs
For BDSM pleasure after hours, try some hand cuffs.
If you’re wearing them, try to wriggle out.
Stimulate your senses of touch by going all the way with a blindfold on.
13. Prostate massager
And finally, I’m delighted to introduce you, gents, to the Aneros Helix Syn – a massager that caresses the prostate.
