    Hello all.

    We are looking into possibly offering an option on the recent mystery bundles for our same sex couples.

    This is following up on  some feedback from you - our customers.  

    So as we aim to please we would like to know ...

    What would you like to see in your own same sex couple bundle? (If we could offer this)

    There are plenty of genderless options of toys to include; so things like Dildos and Butt Plugs (silicone/glass/metal) are always a good choice. Lubes and Massage oils wouldn't go amiss. Things like Wand Vibrators, I think, are perfect for use by anyone as well. It would be great to see 'genderless' couple games - we've tried so many different games where the assumption the couple is cis-male/cis-female. That would also just be an awesome requirement in general as well. There's probably a few more things, I might be back once i've had my morning coffee!

    Many yeses for this! Provision for same sex couples is awesome!
    I'm not sure where you'd go with this though. I agree with David, dildos and plugs are always a good option, maybe something gently bondage-y but not threatening.
    Inclusion of gender neutral harness panties would be pretty rad, but that's just because I love mine :')
    Oils and balms are a good choice too, being neutral and sensual.

    I think its just consideration of things like condoms and cock rings and masturbation sleeves would be inappropriate in a bundle for the lady-gays, but dental dams would be awesome!
    On the flip side, I don't feel that there's anything overly inappropriate for guys, you might just wanna be considerate of colours and designs!

    Hey peeps

    Just to clarify, we don't need info on gender neutral toys. We already know about gender neutrality and the toys which don't require a specific genital to use them. We've been doing this for 15 years now, after all 😉

    We're thinking about creating TWO bundles which ARE gender specific, but for same sex relationships. 

    1) Same sex for those with a penis 🍆

    2) Same sex for those with a clitoris 🍒

    So what we need to know is: if you could create one of the above, which toys / products would you include? Your dream same sex bundle, if you will.

    Thaaaaaaanks!!!

    Fantastic feedback- Thank you. Any input is welcome.

    However what we would really like to know is...

    In your own coupling what is it you would like to see from what we sell in your very own bundle?

    Hia!
    Not in a relationship as such but enjoying single life with girls and guys play partners at the mo.
    Id love a couple of double ended toys in the ♀ ♀ box :) both larger longer ones made of a plasticy material and glass ones (because I love glass)
    Finger vibrator would be good. Perhaps a strapon (once that's quite adjustable to be size inclusive) with a rainbow or purple dildo in keeping with the lgbt theme.
    Some massage gel (especially flavoured) wouldn't go a miss :)
    If you're looking for someone to test this should it become a bundle drop me an email ;P

    For the 'mens' bundle - a couple of options on cock rings would probably make a nice matching gift set to suit different types. Perhaps one good quality dildo (glass, silicone, etc) along with other prostate toys/plugs so that there's a few styles to explore with, and I personally think some kind of restraint (wristcuffs, etc) would be ideal to round everything up. Specifically a more realistic looking dildo, with some interesting shapes on the other toys. My preference for a couples bundle would be more focused around lengthy foreplay that would lead the buildup into sex, rather than being the main event :)

    Some quality lube/oils are definitely essential, but I think things like condoms would mostly be irrelevant for couples in long term relationships.

    Can I just say, I was just thinking about this, having seen the new bundles available, I wish you had a lgbt one for us too.
    My girlfriend is really in to penetration whereas I'm not, so that's worth considering. I bought one of the bundles last year and that went down quite well. So for the girls/ clitoris haver bundles I would recommend:

    - Bullet/ The micro wand
    - Rabbit
    - Sillicon Dildo
    - Water-based Lube
    - Storage

    That said, that wouldn't make me buy it as we have quite a collection already. To make me buy a bundle it would have to be items from the desire collection or similar, so I'm getting real luxury for a price I wouldn't normally get.

    I think two sets aiming at homosexual men and lesbians! Long time over due! Also you can make a lot of money LH is not really known for gay men toys! I am finding that there are a lot of toys aimed at women, that can be used by bi ad gay men either top/bottom or in between. I have noticed there are hardly any reviews by gay or bisexual men! Its something in reviews that I like to see! I have made an effort in my toy reviews to include more on the gay/bi male approach! Also on products women orientated. It will bring in more customers! I'm reviewing several glass dildos and p-spot simulators. Its domething that I was going to email in to you but as this has been started, its better here! If you want feedback or advice please message me!

    While I'm in a relationship that's Male/Male but Penis/Vagina right now, I can only really vouch for past experience in other M/M relationships, but I personally think that the big thing for M/M relationships is prostate massagers and you'd need a good one that lets you not only explore it but actually get good enjoyment out of it (Some of them are... not good). There should also be strokers in it just because they're so damn nice. But I think there should also be a few kink related things in there. I notice a lot of gay men really don't participate in BDSM related stuff, so anyone who actually is willing to buy a box of sex toys dedicated to gay men, you'd probably expect them to be wiling to explore their kinkier side and can have a few things like handcuffs or a crop in there.

    I'd highly recommend not filling it out with things like delay sprays and enhancement pills just because they're so polarizing and they might make people think they're wasting their money if you got a mystery box promising 8 items and two of them were cheap £5 enhancers that may not even work for a lot of people

    And, of course, you can never have too much anal lube.

    I would like to see a range of portable glory holes! For use in doorways! I have made my own! But it would be good to see a range made from various materials eg canvas, rubber etc Also maybe a more permanent design for bedroom/sex dungeon and portable design for doorways and to take to sex parties! I'm sure lesbians with strapons would also lime this after consulting with my neighbours who are lesbian! You just need to create a hole that can be adjusted for height size!

    Also agree on this last part! You tend to see these sorts of products aimed at gay men a lot, and I've never known anyone to ever really get any practical use out of them.

    I think a few key-piece quality toys along with some more gift/kinky items is the best way to please everyone :)

    Not an easy thing to cater for due to the sheer diversity within the LGBT community.

    Some gay couples don't use penetration toys, at all; both MM and FF, so I think it would be a good Idea to state if the bundle contains such toys.

    But generally for a lesbian couple, a strapon; a uni sex one, as some lesbian couples actually contain one partner who still has male bits but doesn't use them as such. dildos to fit the harness, suction cup ones, these can be stuck bottom to bottom, to create a double ender as well. Clit vibe, G spot vibe, wand, glass dildos, a straight double ender, a G spot rabbit or other rabbit with no rotating middle bit ( These make fantastic anal vibes as well, in my opinion; so could be put to either use) Things like massage oils are universal, and kind of romantic; but lubes, well if you use them you will have loads in your toy box, so not something I would want to see.

    Gay male, well again, theres a whole plethora of combinations, with tops, bottoms, versatiles. But I would say, things like, strokers, dildos ( 2 suction cup dildos, would allow them to be turned into a straight double ender, if the couple wanted. 2 different ones to suit different tastes, or just to change it up. ) anal safe vibes ( again I find G spot and non rotating rabits vibes are better than prostate specific anal vibes, and are much under rated; and missed out on, for such use, but thats just me. ) The same as above for massage oil.

    Both would benifit from an introductory light BDSM toy, or so; even if it's just a blind fold, and a small flogger; I think a flogger can be easier to use in a sensual, and softer way than a paddle.

    A couple with 1, or especially both being trans, just gets ultra complex, if I'm anything to go by; so i'm not going to comment there.

    Think that's a bit specilized isn't it, pretty but plugs for females and darker ones for the men perhaps.
