    Once you've taken the plunge and tried bondage for the first time, you may decide that it's something you'd like to experiment with further.

    Traditionally, vanilla couples experiment with bondage by being tied up and objectified as a sexual thing - to be touched, toyed with, pleasured and pleased without having to do very much at all. This is great fun at first, but couples often find that this kind of play becomes a one-sided affair.

    There's a whole world of toys and tools to explore, but you'll need an inventive imagination to go with them to keep sexy restraint scenarios fresh. By incorporating explorable themes into your bondage play, you'll find it easier to renew the experience time and time again.

    When used correctly, condoms can protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections - but it's essential that you know how to apply and remove them properly.

    Condoms offer essential protection in casual relationships, for both partners. Read our guide How to Choose a Condom to learn the difference between different types of condoms.

    Black Level PVC Zip Front Halterneck Mini Dress

    Despite what many people believe, PVC clothing and latex clothing are not exactly the same thing, although both are great for giving a shiny, figure-hugging look.

    PVC (or polyvinylchloride, or vinyl) is a plastic polymer that's used to coat fabric to create a glossy, waterproof surface, whereas latex is a form of rubber that creates a more restrictive feeling. PVC makes a great cheap alternative to both latex and leather, has a much lower risk of causing an allergic reaction, and is often found in fetish or BDSM-inspired outfits.

    But how do you know what is the best PVC outfit for you? Keep reading for our expert tips and top recommendations.

    Teddy Babes are classified as a high-end, realistic sex doll but in reality they are much more than a means for sexual fulfilment. Instead of cold plastic, rubber or silicone skin, Teddy Babes have soft and velvety plush fabric. Instead of solid plastic or air filling their bodies, they are packed full of squeezable poly-fil fibres.

    The primary function of a Teddy Babe is cuddling and each doll has been specifically built to be tactile, soft and warm to the touch - an ingenious and innovative idea in a market that places importance on climactic potential above all else. To be clear, Teddy Babes are realistic love dolls and they have a penetrable vagina, but they work in different ways to your average blow-up doll and are nowhere near as ‘lifeless’ as a silicone sex doll.

    The varied fan base certainly mirror this sentiment and a quick search for Teddy Babes online will lead you into various forums where you’ll discover how these dolls evolve into so much more than a large male masturbator.
