    6 Different Sex Toy Sensations

    Did 'trying new things' top your list when you made your new year's resolutions? Yep, us too.

    Speed dating, rock climbing and hot yoga are all great ways to spend your time, but if that bullet vibe is constantly on charge by your bed, chances are it's time to expand your sexy repertoire (as well as your list of hobbies).

    It's easy to slip into a habit when it comes to sex or solo fun. And while it's great to know what works for you, discovering a new erogenous zone or sensation can unlock a higher level of sexual satisfaction.

    Luckily, our sex toys can do more than just buzz, and our award-winning Desire collection has a plethora of different stimulation techniques for you to explore.

    Here are 6 different kinds of sex toy sensations that everyone needs to try!

    dirty-talk

    What's sexier than knowing what you want in bed? Openly and enthusiastically asking for it, of course!

    There's every reason to try talking dirty though – especially as the sexy phrases you moan, murmur and scream have been scientifically proven to trigger a reaction in the brain that make your partner feel even more aroused.

    And while we're not suggesting you turn the air bright blue from the get-go, dirty talk is definitely something you can master with a little bit of practice.
