    Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.

    Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.

    A violet wand is an electrosex device used to enhance physical awareness, create a sexy tickling sensation or to induce pain when used on higher settings.

    On the lower settings the electricity causes a ticklish tingling that heightens physical awareness and feels incredibly erotic, helping to build sexual anticipation and turn both partners on. Higher settings create more pain and can leave temporary marks on the skin similar to candle wax burns.

    Violet wands found their way into bedrooms via the BDSM and fetish communities but more and more vanilla couples are discovering the pleasures of using violet wands as an enhancement to foreplay.
