• Ask Birdie...

    Oh, Sex Toys. So tempting, but how do you know what to buy? What works? What doesn't? What is even OUT THERE to try? You have questions, I have answers (most of the time...)

    Dear McBirdie,

    My girlfriend and I want to find new ways to play together and please each other. She's used the famous Rabbit before, but while she likes the intense vibrations, she actually finds the main shaft of it too big for comfort. Can you suggest anything? Also, can you suggest anything more specifically geared for couples to try together? It's only a few weeks until Valentine's Day and I want to make sure anything I order arrives in plenty of time!

    Gratefully yours,

    Playful Valentine


    Orgasm Bullet Vibrator Set

    So the holidays are over.  We've nursed the hangovers, we've eaten more than an army, and now we brace ourselves for the inevitable... the January bills.  Did we really need to buy ALL those presents?  Probably not.  But we all get caught up like crazed little elves and find ourselves in the same position every year.  My grandmother would call it "tightening our belts".  My friend, however, summed it up rather more sadly... "the month we can only dream of things like restaurants".

    Luckily, though, that doesn't have to mean no jolly sex toy presents.  No, it doesn't!  Because if there is one thing you can always get pleasure from (other than just a good vibe) it is a good sale (especially when that good sale focuses on good vibrators).  Lovehoney has its Sex Toy of the Day going on, but even better than that is trawling through the sale items for all the things you put off getting this last year.  And you can even feel righteous doing it - just look at their original prices!

    Best deals?

    Vibrating Egg

    One of the best things about Lovehoney is that they are always adding in new toys that have enough innovation to keep even a girl with a huge toy chest interested.  Of course, it does damage to my bank account, but I am constantly updating my wishlist to include the cool new finds that pop up under the What's New links.  A month ago or so, the toy that had my attention was the Screaming O OHoney Vibrating Clitoral Sex Enhancer.  I had to give into my temptation with that toy and go ahead and order it myself, and I'm guessing it won't be a terribly different story with the White Heat.

    Vibrating Egg Big apologies to anyone who showed up here on Monday looking for my promised post on Vibrating Eggs. Sometimes even the most dedicated of sex toy aficionados get distracted by Christmas. But, we're back on track now, so let's examine one of the more perplexingly simple toys out there.

    There are - basically - two main types of vibrating eggs: there are those with cords and those that are cordless. Simple enough distinction, no? As you may guess, a corded egg tends to have more variable speeds and patterns, and has a longer running time. The downside, of course, is that you're limited to how far away your hand can be and some positions get tricksy.

    A cordless egg, on the other hand, gives you a greater range of motion and options, but you'll find that the batteries run down a whole lot faster. You are also often limited to one speed or pattern (the Lovehoney Dream Egg 10 Function is an exception - and the cheapest model to boot. Toy Joy has a similar model out there, but it is currently sold out - ask for email notification if you're interested).

    But let me answer the main questions you'll have:


    Slender Dildo 5.5 Inch

    If you had your head turned by the charming chap who modelled the Spartacus Heavy Metal Dual Cock Rings in my post on Monday, I thought I would make sure I introduced you.  You never know when love will blossom, will you?

    Dear McBirdie,

    This might be a weird question, but it's been driving me nuts. I recently broke up with a long time boyfriend and we're on okay terms, but I really want to get my sex game back from him. I bought it when I wanted to spice things up a bit, but we never used it - but I don't want to be tacky! Is this okay?

    Thank you,

    Game Player

    Spartacus Heavy Metal Dual Cock Rings As promised last Monday, today I'm taking a closer look at the dual cock ring--one of those toys that we tend to look at but sometimes pass over as being a bit too confusing and intimidating to purchase for ourselves.

    njoy Pure Wand Stainless Steel Dildo


    At this point, it would be impossible for me to actually get all of the gifts I've put on my Wish List for Christmas, but I just keep stumbling across exciting new finds when I play around on Lovehoney and Orgasm Army.  What is interesting about this one is that the reviews aren't showing up on the Lovehoney site - so if you haven't ever gone over to Orgasm Army (where real people are writing reviews of all the sex toys they have bought to better help us all get the right toy).

    I love the look of the njoy Pure Wand.  I really like a toy that has look of class about it and this one definitely has that.  It looks rather like something futuristic and should appeal to the geekies in the room.  The box it comes in is also gorgeous - it is like it does Christmas for you.  But what is most impressive is the reviews.  Check out what they're saying:

    As I talked about on Friday, being alone doesn't have to mean the end of your sex life.  On the contrary, for men on their own, it can be a time when they finally develop greater control over their orgasms, increase their stamina, and experience prostate stimulation for the first time.  Whether you want to learn to control your responses, enjoy stimulating body parts beyond your cock, or just get yourself into the best possible shape for when you are having partner sex, there are many things that you can do alone so much better than you can with a partner...

    Here then are 5 ideas and tips for enjoying your solo flight:

    Dear McBirdie,

    A problem here. My boyfriend and I have sex once a week (rarely twice). Well, although he is very nice to me, it's just not enough. I get sexually frustrated on day 3 and cannot stop but pick little fights about things that bother me a little. Getting my frustration out this way seems to help in a sick way.

    I tried all the hot games with him. It does not work. He is just comfortable the way things are. And, yes, he is aware I want more sex. He says: "We are working on it. But my little fights kill his mood.

    The thing is if we had more sex I would not fight EVER. What should I do?

    Thank you,
