4 Fantastic Toys For Solo Play
For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to B&Q than something a lot more pleasurable.
However, 'doing it yourself' shouldn't just be reserved for trying to whip up a shelf with the ease of Nick Knowles on DIY SOS.
During the middle of any stressful period, I can't be the only who could do with a bit of help trying to relax after those long days, and unfortunately, giving up some of our precious time to have some fun with somebody else just isn't a priority.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't find some of that sexual happiness by ourselves.
If, like me, you'd benefit from a low-maintenance helping hand to put a smile on your face, have a look at four fabulous toys that are fit for the job.
It may seem small but, believe me, this tiny wand vibe really is mighty.
Its three powerful speeds and flexible neck will help to keep any lady happy not just this season, but all year round, too.
If, like me, your bank balance couldn't stretch to one of the full-size wands, this is the perfect alternative.
The broad head isn't just good for clitoral orgasms, however; it's also the ideal size to use as a massager on aching muscles after particularly intense and busy periods.
Now, this recommendation doesn't come from myself personally (not having a penis and all), but from one of my male friends.
This toy has not one, but two stretchy rings to maximise pleasure, which when twinned with the intense vibrations provides killer stimulation to help make your alone-time a bit more exciting.
You can experiment with the positioning of the two rings either along your shaft or around your testicles, and the five functions to ensure that it blows away all those cobwebs that are left in your mind from revision or a long day at work.
Also, as a bonus, this cock ring also comes with a vibrating clitoral stimulator on top, so you can still get some use out of it when you and your partner are getting hot and heavy, too.
If the pressure of your day-to-day life begins to build to unbearable level, then you could treat yourself to a cock ring with an attached butt plug, like this one. This toy is a little bit more expensive, but you do get twice the stimulation.
Lots of houses have walls as thin as a cereal box, so when you're planning to play solo, discretion is key.
It's massively unlikely that your neighbours or housemates will hear this toy, so all you'll need to focus on is making sure they don't hear you.
This vibrator has a classic design, with a simple aim - to make you reach climax - and it doesn't disappoint.
It's a timeless vibrator with a twist (quite literally), which does exactly what it says on the box, whilst being easy to hide away in your room.
The Silencer is also waterproof, meaning you can use the sound of the shower to mask the sound of yourself if you don't trust yourself to be able to keep quiet.
If you're looking to be a bit more adventurous with your masturbation, then this is the perfect toy to do just that.
This butt plug is carefully shaped in to a T to ensure you can feel the most intense vibrations, making for the best experience, and to keep it safely in place.
The length and girth of this plug are perfect for beginners, and it's super-easy to insert especially when paired with the Lovehoney Water-Based Anal Lubricant.
One of the perks of solo play is that you don't have to consider the needs of anyone else, which means you can really focus on the five vibration modes of this brilliant toy.
Every now and then we all need to treat ourselves, and what better way to take some time-out for ourselves than to engage in a bit of masturbation fun?
Any of these toys will really take your self-pleasure to a whole new level. Don't be afraid to add something more to your masturbation because as they say, if you want a job doing properly, then do it yourself.
