1. Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.

    Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.

    Interested in trying rimming or playing the rusty trombone? We've put together some tips to help you enjoy safe and satisfying play.

    What are penis extenders, and why would anyone want to use one? The clue is in the name: Penis extenders are penis sleeves, often made of plastic or rubber, that slide over the penis and add extra inches in length and girth. Some even add textures for new sensations.

    Penis extender sleeves can be closed at the top or have an open tip. They can also be smooth or have stimulating nubs for extra pleasure. This guide aims to highlight the best penis extenders for each goal and give you an idea of what options are available to you.

    Most strap-on harness kits have either a hole or an O-ring that you slot the dildo into, and usually come with at least one dildo to start you off. Once you discover the joys of strap-on sex though, you'll be hungry to try dildos in new shapes and sizes - or may be be ready to go bigger.

    This guide will give you all the information you need to choose the right dildo to fit your strap-on. And remember, with our generous returns policy you can always check your dildo in your harness at home and if it doesn't fit, just send it back.

    Strap ons are a great sex toy for couples. They allow you to penetrate your partner, while keeping your hands free for other fun… We've come a long way since dildos on a piece of elastic, so now when people speak about a strap-on, they usually mean a strap-on harness.

    A strap-on harness lets the wearer have more comfort and control, ensuring they can give the most pleasure to their partner. Most of the time, you can also switch dildos in and out of a harness so you can experiment with a whole range of toys.

    When you look at big dildos you're probably going to have one of two reactions:

    Reaction A - Ouch!
    Reaction B - Wow, that looks fun!

    The length and girth can be very intimidating to those who are new to sex toys, but they can be incredibly pleasurable, satisfying you in a way no other dildo can.

    The advice and tips below to using a dildo apply to both vaginal and anal play.

    Fancy a dildo but don't want to leave your partner out of the fun? Then hop onboard a double-ended dildo for twice the pleasure, or use it solo for mind-blowing penetration!

    If you've always wanted to enjoy double penetration or you and your partner want to try pegging play, then a double dildo could be just what you're looking for!

    When you want straight-forward satisfaction, you should reach for a dildo. Available in many different colours, shapes and sizes, dildos are designed to provide penetrative pleasure unlike anything else.

    Although they may not rotate, vibrate or pulsate, dildos give you the kind of pleasure that you won’t get from anything electrical, so choosing the right one is key.

    When you’re starting out with dildos, all you want to do is type ‘nice dildo’ into Google and be presented with a single result which is the perfect dildo for you! Sadly, the world of dildos doesn’t work quite like that, but we’ve devised a category system which should help.
