Must-Have Toys For Temperature Play
Sensations underpin the very heart of sexual pleasure, and one magical touch can send you over the edge into bliss.
For this reason, why wouldn't you want to experiment and expand your potential satisfaction?
One way to do this is by a practice known as temperature play.
Temperature play is the art of using different temperatures to create varied sensations over your whole body for sexual enjoyment.
Whether it be in the form of toys, lubricants, or bondage tools, there's a whole range of items out there to try out to suit whatever type of temperature play you are looking for!
Read on below for my top picks for newbies and experienced players alike...
A absolute classic when dealing with temperature play! The perfect material for whatever your needs and, as a bonus, sex toys made from glass are breathtakingly beautiful.
Glass can be either warmed or cooled by simply immersing your toy in warm or cool water, depending on which is your preference for that day.
Lovehoney have a wide range of glass toys available, with a variety of textures such as the Lovehoney Textured Sensual Glass Dildo.
There are butt plugs, dildos, and even a glass-handled flogger available to buy, so no matter what your preferences are, you should be able to find a gorgeous glass object to fulfil your desires.
An alternative, less widespread material than glass, but just as effective, metal has come to a lot stronger prominence in the last few years thanks to increased awareness about body-safe materials, of which metal is one.
These can often be a little pricier and heavier, but they are worth the extra money.
If you can afford to splash major cash on a luxury item, the holy grail of metal and G-spot toys is the njoy Pure Wand, beloved by sex bloggers across the industry and has a solid 5 out of 5 stars here on Lovehoney.
Just as with glass, simply heat or cool by submersing in a bowl of water of the temperature you desire.
Temperature play does not have to be reserved for insertables or of the standard toy variety. It can be incorporated into more intimate activities as well, and doesn't have to necessarily lead to sex.
If you want to have a romantic night in with your partner, more about relaxation and closeness than actual sex itself, a definite consideration could be the Lovehoney Oh! Hot Massage Rocks.These can be heated to a comfortable temperature and then used to massage your partner into a state of relaxed bliss.
You can take it in turns to massage each other and discover the wonders of temperature play together, or you could use it as a special treat for one of you after a particularly long day that requires a long de-stress afterwards.
At the other end of the spectrum, there's also options for a kinkier night in too.
If you're looking to really embrace something more daring, why not try the some bondage candles, such as the Bondage Boutique Fetish Drip Candles?
You simply light the candles and drip the wax over your bare skin in whatever pattern you please. When a lot of people first hear the idea of hot wax being poured onto them, they can feel a little intimidated: however, there's no need to feel this way!
Bondage candles are specifically made to burn at a lower temperature than your normal wax candles, so that when the hot wax drips onto your skin, you won't get burned.
Of course, for this reason, do not try to substitute normal candles from your house, as these are not made to be body-safe and you could get burns from using them this way – stay safe and only use items specifically made for temperature play purposes.
If you'd like to try hot wax play, but think bondage candles might be a step too far too soon, why not opt for a massage candle instead?
These candles burn at an even lower temperature, and create pools of warm massage oil that can be worked into your partner's skin.
