1. "Ask Birdie..." What Is A Good Toy For My Girlfriend And For Us?

    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

    Dear Valentine,

    First, don't worry about getting a delivery in time for Valentine's Day - if you have never ordered from Lovehoney, you'll hardly believe how fast you get a delivery. I've had packages show up the next day and I don't think I've ever waited more than three. If you push it really late, you can always order it expedited. So you have time to try out a few gifts before the big day - at least, this is what I always tell my guys. :)

    To the rest of your question, I love it. Seriously, I cannot tell you how much I love men asking about good gifts for their partners and I love the timing - because I just last week mentioned a new toy that I thought might work for women who had some problems with using Rabbits. Just the other day, I wrote about the White Heat Double Delight Mini Clitoral Vibrator - I think this might address some of your girlfriend's problems with the Rabbit being too big and uncomfortable.

    When it comes to couple toys, I think one of the best places to start is a vibrating cock ring. It is one of the less intrusive toys, which is great for beginners, but it also allows you to be fully connected - which is what we all want for Valentine's Day, no? My favourite model is the Screaming O BongO Cock Ring - it's out of stock now, so ask for an email notification when it comes back in. If you don't want to wait on stocks, another good model is the Omazing Glow in the Dark Vibrating Cock Ring. It has the fun of glow in the dark, but it also comes with 12 batteries - that is a whole lot of Valentine's fun.

    One last idea that works great for couples wanting a romantic evening - vibrators made to go on the tongue are just made for a good time. The Tongue Dinger is a lot of fun and as it is disposable, it is a very reasonable price to try it out. If you're sure that you'll like it, you can go for a longer lasting model, like the TongueJoy Vibrating Tongue Ring. It even comes in a Romance Version, perfect for Valentine's Day.

    Whatever you choose, I hope you have a wonderfully romantic holiday - your girlfriend is sure to be pleased.
