With all the other things going on in our lives - work, family, socialising, and not to mention sleeping - it can be easy to let taking care of your sexual self slide.

But just like skincare, haircare, eating right, and exercising, sexual self-care is important to keep yourself happy and healthy.

So whether you decide to treat yourself to some brand-spanking new sex toys for men or get stuck into some new reading material, here are 5 ways to fit in some very special 'you time', and really up your sexual satisfaction.

1. Experiment

Being single is a great time to find out what you really like without the pressure of wanting to please a partner.

Although you probably already have an idea of the type of things that turn you on, there's no harm in experimenting on your own terms?

If you've never experienced the sensations of a male masturbator, lube one up and go to town. If you've always been curious about anal play, spend your evening getting acquainted with a butt plug or prostate massager. We could go on but you get the idea...

2. Restock Your Underwear Drawer

Whether you prefer briefs, boxers, or something more exciting altogether, we believe that the pants maketh the man.

Wearing flattering underwear is a quick win when it comes to feeling more confident - for guys as well as women.

Fabrics such as mesh and satin feel amazing against the skin while simultaneously flattering your package - making investing in some new kecks a no-brainer!

3. Catch up on Your Reading

Forget the sex tips you once read in a copy of Men's Health while waiting for a dentist appointment - if you really want to brush up on your bedroom skills, you'll need to invest in some quality reading material.

Whether you want to learn more about how to satisfy yourself or please a future partner, a better sex guide is a great way to research fantasies and explore new techniques.

4. Get Prepared

You know the old saying 'you can never be too prepared'? Well, this has never been truer than when it comes to sex.

Replace any out-of-date condoms that have been gathering dust at the back of your bedside drawer with brand new ones.

From ultra-thin to flavoured, ribbed and even vegan - you might be surprised at the selection available.

If you want to restock your sex stash further, why not invest in a new sex lubricant? As well as being a must-have if you're using a Fleshlight or masturbator, having a decent lube on hand is bound to score you extra points with any future partners!

5. Take Control of the Remote

Does the thought of getting frisky in a public place turn you on? If so, why not try a wearable toy while you're out and about.

Whether you're an experienced user or an anal play novice, we stock a wide range of vibrating remote control butt plugs - from dinky beginner's toys to chunkier prostate massagers.

As captain of your own orgasm ship, you're in charge of the vibrations. Simply lube up your chosen toy, slip it in and keep the remote control to hand.

Treat yourself!

What better way to show yourself some self care than with a new toy?
