Vibrating cock rings are a best-selling sex toy and tend to be one of the first toys couples try, and it's easy to see why.
Just like non-vibrating cock rings, the vibrating versions reduce blood flow out of the penis, which can help boost size, hardness and stamina. Plus, the added vibrations stimulate your partner during sex.
And despite the name, you don't even need a penis to enjoy one! Don't believe us? Take a look at our guide to making the most of your cock ring here.
What is Rimming?
Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.
Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.
The Rimming Butt Plug
Lovehoney has created the Desire Rimming Butt Plug to exactly mimic the sensation of rimming. It's remote controlled and USB rechargeable, too.
Rated 4.5 starts in reviews, Lovehoney customers had this to say about the Desire Rimming Butt Plug:
"It happily stays in position during foreplay and sex, giving that wonderfully full feeling, while the rimming action stimulates the sensitive nerve endings around the opening."
"I loved the feel of the rimming... It has lovely vibes, good for plug beginners and feels like it's good quality."
"Perfect plug for everyone, beautiful design and intense experience."
A violet wand is an electrosex device used to enhance physical awareness, create a sexy tickling sensation or to induce pain when used on higher settings.
On the lower settings the electricity causes a ticklish tingling that heightens physical awareness and feels incredibly erotic, helping to build sexual anticipation and turn both partners on. Higher settings create more pain and can leave temporary marks on the skin similar to candle wax burns.
Violet wands found their way into bedrooms via the BDSM and fetish communities but more and more vanilla couples are discovering the pleasures of using violet wands as an enhancement to foreplay.

Male masturbators give a better-than-real feel, with textures that stimulate and tease the nerve endings in the penis better than a hand ever could.
Male masturbators like strokers make a great first time sex toy for men – they're easy to use, inexpensive, easy to clean and give out-of-this-world stimulation.
They also make a great addition to couple’s play, spicing up any kind of hand or mouth action. If you or your partner have reservations about male sex toys because of their realistic look, a non-anatomical masturbator is a great alternative.
These are Lovehoney customer-favourite strokers:

Tit wanking is something that you see a lot in porn. Which naturally means that a lot of people want to try it. It can be difficult at first though, figuring out who goes where and what would make it easier.
Tit wanking is when a man thrusts his penis between the breasts until he's climaxed or you're both ready to move on to something else. It can be combined with oral stimulation of the shaft and head of the penis for him, as well as nipple play for her. There are loads of ways to give a tit wank that make it enjoyable for both partners.
Porn can give a slightly skewed version of how a tit wank works; not everyone is amazingly flexible with massive boobs, after all.
This practical guide will give you some ideas on how to give a tit wank and explain some ways to make it an enjoyable experience for both of you.
We also have a range of tit wank sex toys that are great for getting the same sensation without a partner.
Whether you prefer the Sqweel 2 or Sqweel Go, it's important to thoroughly clean your Sqweel after each use to make sure it stays in pristine condition. Luckily, as well as being extremely easy to use - they're also easy to clean!
Silicone lube is a water-resistant lube that's safe to use with condoms and ideal for long-lasting lubrication during sex. Lots of people love silicone lube as it doesn't end up feeling sticky like a water-based lube does. Silicone lube is even waterproof, so it's fantastic for fulfilling bathroom sex fantasies.
Silicone sex lube is generally more expensive than water-based lube (because it contains more expensive ingredients) but you get a lot for your money. The long-lasting properties mean you won’t need to keep topping up your lubrication and you’ll need less of it too.
One important thing to note is that you can’t use silicone lube with your silicone sex toys, but it’s perfect for your glass or plastic toys and ideal for sex.
