The purpose of a pussy pump is to create a vacuum over the labia and/or clitoris which will in turn make the tissue swell, encouraging more blood to flow and making the skin much more sensitive. Whether you use a pussy pump alone or with a partner, the unique sensations and gorgeously puffy appearance are sure to be a fantastic turn on.
Pumping your pussy will leave it feeling ultra-sensitive and every touch, tingle and vibration will be heightened. This is perfect if you have trouble orgasming and ideal if you're looking for something new to spice up your bedroom activities.
Definitions for basques, corsets and bustiers vary between companies. Anything with lacing down the back or an hourglass shape can be referred to as a corset and this can cause a lot of confusion when you're trying to decide what to buy and how to measure yourself.
So what is the difference between these garments and how does that change how you wear them?

Sex toys are safe for bodily use, but they can be quite reactive when put next to alike or opposing materials. It is vital to be careful when storing your sex toys. If you mix your sex toys (particularly silicone, rubber, latex, realistic feel and jelly sex toys) you may soon discover that they start to look melted or slightly misshapen.
We can't overstate how important it is that you store your sex toys separately if you don't want a nasty surprise the next time you reach for your favourite toy.
Anal beads are a great way to experience anal sex slowly and gently. Most anal beads start small and get larger with the more length you take, allowing your body to adjust to the size. Smooth and spherical, anal beads are easy to insert and unintimidating.
With their graduated shape, smooth spheres and easy hand-held design, anal beads provide an unusual and appealing feeling which can turn a regular orgasm into an earth-shattering experience.
Most strap-on harness kits have either a hole or an O-ring that you slot the dildo into, and usually come with at least one dildo to start you off. Once you discover the joys of strap-on sex though, you'll be hungry to try dildos in new shapes and sizes - or may be be ready to go bigger.
This guide will give you all the information you need to choose the right dildo to fit your strap-on. And remember, with our generous returns policy you can always check your dildo in your harness at home and if it doesn't fit, just send it back.
If you live with others or have thin walls, then a near-silent vibrator is probably the only way to let go, relax and enjoy yourself.

Anal douches are incredibly useful tools for fans of anal sex toys and anal sex. They work by cleansing the anus before penetration, ensuring that it’s as clean and hygienic as possible. This not only ensures your play won’t be messy, it alleviates any associated fears, helping you to relax into your pleasure. Many people like to douche in particular before enjoy oral stimulation of the anus, known as rimming or analingus.
Anal douching flushes water through the anus before it is expelled, leaving it clean. Douches come in different sizes and shapes to suit all levels of experience and are incredibly simple to use, even the first time.

Jiggle balls are designed to help you locate your pelvic floor muscles and work them effectively. Also known as Ben Wa balls, Burmese balls, geisha balls or love balls, Kegel balls (which is their proper name) are inserted into the vagina and by holding them in and clenching around them you will target and strengthen the correct muscle groups.
Jiggle balls contain small weighted balls on the inside that roll around as you move, creating some excellent internal sensations and reminding you to squeeze against the ball.
