11 Futuristic Sex Toys That Belong in 3020

With just a couple of months left of 2020, I've been thinking about the future. This tends to extend into other things like learning about space, watching some future-y sci-fi movies and thinking a whole lot about the future of sex.

Why I'm Going Back To School To Learn About Sex

going-back-to-school-to-learn-about-sex

I might completely regret this decision in 12 months.

I’ve decided to apply for a Masters of Sexology to complete full time for the next 2 years (here’s hoping that I get in).

I’m right off the back of completing a graduate certificate, and I’m already itching to get another qualification. For a long time, there have been many things that have held me back from doing this. The time, debt, effort, stress, studying via distance, not to mention having to travel from the east coast of Australia to the west coast at least twice a year sure enough were among the cons in my ‘pros and cons’ list.

All these things still scare me, but they barely measure up to why I want to become a certified sex geek. Here’s why.

The Great Lube Taste Test

the-great-lube-taste-test

Flavoured lubes are a great way to bring some delicious fun into your sex life.

They can be used just like any other lube, with the added bonus of a tasty flavour to lick off any body part or toy. I've always been a bit hesitant when it comes to flavoured lubes – I tried one a long time ago and it was so sickly sweet that it put me off them entirely.

But, I've been thinking about finding one that suits me, that makes me and my partner enjoy giving oral even more. So, I bit the bullet and completed The Great Lube Taste Test to find my flavour, and hopefully help some of you.

All of these lubes are water-based and vegan, so they're perfect for practically anyone!

8 Sexy Things You Can Do (That Don't Need an Orgasm to Be Fun)

9-Sexy-Things-You-Can-Do

Orgasms are absolutely fantastic, there's no doubt about that. But, there might be times where you or your partner cannot or choose not to reach climax.

Sex should be pleasurable and fun, whether you're orgasming or not. It's those sexy, fun feelings that bring us to orgasm, and we wouldn't be orgasming without them.

It's just like that age-old saying – the journey is better than (or even the reason for) the destination. You wouldn't do a hike to a lookout point and ignore the wildlife, plants and waterfall along the way, would you?

Also, I find that removing the sense of having a 'goal' (i.e. orgasming) when engaging in partnered or solo sex can make things much more enjoyable.

That way you'll notice all of the other sexy things happening along the way that you may have overlooked because you were so focused on achieving an orgasm.

Let's explore some other sexy and fun things that don't include orgasms.

Gender-Neutral Sex Toys for Every Body

Gender Neutral Sex Toys for Every Body

I've been very excited about the move towards creating gender-free and adaptable toys – making gender-neutral sex toys allows pleasure to be accessible to everybody, and broadens the scope of possible experiences.

Giving people the room to explore, unbound by labels or inaccessibility, allows them to prioritise self-love, pleasure and exploration on their own terms.

A little while ago, resident Lovehoney sexperts Jess Wilde and Annabelle Knight produced a fantastic video showcasing some Gender-Neutral Sex Toys for Every Body. It gives plenty of inspiration on how toys can be adapted or used differently to suit different people.

As a pansexual gal, body-neutral toys are a fantastic way for me to create a collection that can be used (safely, with condoms) with any and all of my partners, including myself. It’s also really important to me that my toys don’t resemble genitals to ensure that future partners are never put off by having unwanted body parts in their sexy space.

Here are 5 of my top picks.
