on 9 Apr 2018
The sight of sex toys shouldn’t leave you quaking in your briefs or quivering in your knickers - at least not in a bad way.

Whether it’s a bullet to share, or a specifically designed couple’s gadget, sex toys should be a sizzling addition to your sexual antics, not a replacement for your partner.
In fact, many toys are specifically designed to pleasure both partners simultaneously.
Here’s a breakdown of the best toys for using with a partner.
