When you’re indulging in a spot of anal sex or masturbation with anal play, anal lube should never be left out of your fun and games.
Anal lubricant differs from regular lube as the consistency is much thicker which helps to protect the sensitive skin of the anus. It's not just a safety issue for the health of your sensitive anal tract, it's also a pleasure thing.
Almost all sex is enhanced with a good slick of lube and by making sure that there will definitely be no harsh friction, you'll enjoy your anal sex experience much more.
People who use lubricant have better sex. It eases penetration and makes playing, with or without sex toys, so much more enjoyable. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to make every sexual experience you have smoother and more pleasurable.

Cock rings are simple devices that help to maintain a harder and longer-lasting erection by restricting the blood flowing back down your penis, which in turn makes your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely. Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will tell you how to measure yourself for both kinds.
Cock rings are measured by diameter. This is the measurement across the widest part of the hole in the ring. You want a cock ring with a diameter that's smaller than your personal measurements - this will ensure you have the constriction that you need. Start with something just a little smaller than your measurements, because the smaller you go the tighter the cock ring will be.
Most cock rings are adjustable or have stretch to them to ensure a good fit, but to be sure it will fit perfectly you need to find out the diameter of your cock or cock and balls. You may be wondering how that’s translatable to your very 3D penis, but it’s easy to calculate and we'll show you how.

If you’ve never enjoyed the thrill of prostate play, then you’re missing out.

Not only can a penis enlargement pump deliver intense personal pleasure, it can get a man perfectly primed for bedroom action and increase length and girth - given time! A penis pump creates a vacuum over the penis to encourage blood flow and as the blood flow to the penis is increased, the erectile tissue expands, giving you a stronger erection.
The tissue in your penis will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Pump once or twice a week and in 2 - 3 months you will see an increase to your flaccid penis size of up to 30 percent!
Because latex is a natural, biodegradable material and it’s incredibly sensitive to oils, including the natural oils in your skin. Latex items can be expensive and become sentimental and if you're not careful with cleaning and storage, the next time you reach for your favourite latexwear it could have completely disintegrated.
However, it’s really easy to keep your latex looking as good as new and ready to wear over and over again. All you need to do is make sure you wash and store your latex properly, and this guide explains precisely how to do it to prolong the life of your favourite pieces.
If you like the look of shiny clothing, you may have already tried PVC or patent leather. The next step for many people is trying latex or rubber. You don't have to be a hardened fetishist or fashionista to try latex and this guide will help you choose the right size latex wear and explain how to put it on.
Before you start: check that you do not have a latex allergy. Cut cheap latex gloves into strips and place them in various places against your skin (under a bra strap, inside a sock, inside a waistband) and, after an hour or two, check for any signs of irritation.
You may be thinking; “But I've used condoms, I know I'm not allergic.” You should still patch test various parts of your body before encasing yourself in the stuff, just to be sure.

Being pregnant shouldn't mean you have to sacrifice on sex appeal - however, we often get contacted by women who have trouble feeling sexy during pregnancy.
