While I was working on the last series on introducing sex toys to your partner, costumes kept coming up into the discussion around these parts. The two are quite related, really - one may rely more on fantasy than on batteries, but both require an open mind, a sexy attitude, and an interest in pleasing your partner (and yourself, of course - we're none of us Mother Theresa here).
So what do you know about costumes? Do you know the different kinds that are out there? How about how to use them without laughing out loud and spoiling all the fun? Can you imagine the right scenarios to go with the costumes?
And from all of these questions come the next series. Over the next three Fridays (they'll be posted early in the morning, regardless of when you finally get to them, sleepy-head), I'll be talking about the various ins and outs (literally and figuratively, naturally) of costumes and how to best incorporate them into your bedroom (or out room) play. I'll try to touch on the major topics, but as always, if there is anything you are wondering that I don't bring up, do feel free to give a shout. We're all of us friendly here…
The other day I got an email from Ruth, giving me a link to a little story about George Clooney being pictured carrying what appears to be a Liberator Wedge. Now Ruth is a dear lass, but bless her, clearly behind the times. I mean, who finds George Clooney attractive anymore? Surely his sexual escapades (or doctor-ordered therapy, I'm not here to speculate) are of no interest to the common woman? I laughingly showed this email to the girls in the office.
Twenty minutes and half a pint of blood later, I found that I had, in fact, been mistaken about the attractiveness and viability of one Mr. George Clooney…
So yesterday, while talking about men with high sex drives, I made an aside comment about not having a prostate. A nothing comment, really, because gosh darnit, women don't have prostates, case closed.
Except it sort of sparked a memory of something I had read once. What can I say? I'm an internet bowerbird. I also hate making statements that I'm not completely sure are accurate, so I double-checked. And found that I was right about being wrong. According to this, what was once known as a woman's paraurethral or Skene's glands is now officially our prostate.
In real terms, that doesn't mean much to your day to day life. Except that it helps to explain the phenomenon of female ejaculation. Apparently, that is just the same thing the boys have been doing for eons. Now scientists will speculate for ages on why only some women ejaculate and blah blah blah does this have to do with survival traits and yadda yadda yadda and all I hear is…
A few weeks ago, I gave some tips for men who needed some help satisfying their more eager partners. Of course, it would have made sense for me to come the next week and address women who have the same "problem" of a highly charged partner, but to be honest, I got distracted. Give a couple of sales on Lovehoney, a couple of new toys coming out, and I completely forget that men need satisfaction too.
Ladies, don't make the same mistake. If you are lucky enough to have a man who always has sex on the brain--and I know, you're told over and over how it is a burden, but come on…doesn't it make you feel like the world's sexiest woman how he can't keep his hands off you? Remember that feeling when you're reading this list--you may be looking for ways to keep him satisfied that don't involve you lying back and thinking of England. Because really, that's not fun for anyone.
I've never been much of a dildo girl, really. I like a few bells and whistles (and by "bells and whistles", I think we all know I mean "that puppy better vibrate like his life is on the line"), but I can't ignore six seriously fantastic reviews over at the Orgasm Army. You get six individual people who love a toy so much they want to write about it AND that toy manages to average a full five stars? Well, that gets my attention.
HELP ME! I've bet my girlfriend Joy that we'll sell a dozen of these Chix Stix mini vibrators by the end of October. If I lose, I have to cook her a slap-up veggie roast dinner. Ewww. If I win, she has to cook me a full-on roast with a meat of my choosing. Help me and bring on the giblets!
As I mentioned last Friday, I'm going to spend a couple of Fridays talking about how to introduce sex toys into your sex life with your partner.
Sex toys have a bit of a reputation as being solo-only gadgets. Things that people use when they need to masturbate - often they are thought of as being what you use when you don't have anything better to hand… be that because you're alone or because your partner isn't pushing your buttons. There is some truth to that, of course. Heaven knows my toys get put through their paces when I'm on my own. But it also does you and your toys a disservice - toys can be used to bring greater satisfaction to partners, as well.
So you've been thinking about it… what's the first thing to keep in mind when pondering how to bring up toys with your partner for the first time?
A week ago, the German--aka "The Guy"--was able to come and stay with me for a long week's holiday after he had been out of the country for two months. I'm sure you can imagine that I…was looking forward to the trip. I was looking forward to it even more when a couple of days before he arrived, I received in the post a surprise present…The Good Vibrations Honeymoon Gift Kit.
And now for something completely different! Prepare for your jaw to slacken and for your gast to be flabbered as you gape in awe at the Japanese Motorised Control Cock, one of the finest sex toys ever invented.
Its dual-control orgasmic grinding vibrations will make you scream with delight – and with the vibrations pushing right to the tip of the cock you can be sure that no sweet spot will remain untouched.
The soft-but-firm cyberskin finish is phenomenally realistic and, as it says on the box, 'Great penis!' 'Erotic need punch cannon!' 'I make you happy every day!'
What more can you ask for?

Yesterday I was talking about toys for men who want something out of the ordinary (or just avoid the horrifically non-ordinary, like this little number) and I mentioned the Aneros. I pointed out the Aneros Eupho as being a good example of the line, but really, they're all pretty amazing toys.
I stand by my article, but I also figured--hey, why would a guy take my word for it? So I thought I would show you a bit of what the men are saying about the Aneros line (see review for all the models here):
