The world has gone silver ball crazy thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey but there are so many random names to describe them (jiggle balls, ben wa balls, kegel balls) that you may be finding it hard to figure them out.
As well as providing pleasure, regular use of vaginal balls will help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles over time which will make your vagina feel tighter, improve bladder control and best of all, bless you with more intense and longer lasting orgasms. No wonder Ana Steele loves hers so much.
Sizes, shapes, weights, materials and designs vary wildly and this guide will help you decide which kegel balls are right for you.
Bullet vibrators are extremely simple to use, they’re discreet and easy to clean - not to mention being cheaper than most other toys. These small vibrators can be stored or taken anywhere without anyone realising.
Don’t let their petite size fool you though, they’re renowned for achieving some of the most intense climactic experiences around. In the case of bullet vibrators it’s true that the best things come in small packages!
It's well known that a toned pelvic floor means a tighter vagina and improved continence, but did you know that strong pelvic muscles also lead to more powerful sensations during arousal and stronger, better orgasms for all involved?
Jiggle balls are designed to help you locate your pelvic floor muscles and work them effectively. Also known as Ben Wa balls, Burmese balls, geisha balls or love balls, Kegel balls (which is their proper name) are inserted into the vagina and by holding them in and clenching around them you will target and strengthen the correct muscle groups.
Jiggle balls contain small weighted balls on the inside that roll around as you move, creating some excellent internal sensations and reminding you to squeeze against the ball.
One of the most popular, and best value, sex toys is the bullet vibrator. A bullet sex toy is a great first-choice vibe, a fantastic couple's toy and an essential part of every girl's toy collection. A vibrating bullet is a small, bullet-shaped clitoral stimulator and bullet vibrators all share three key features: they're discreet, powerful and versatile.
Bullet vibrators are discreet and because they are small they tend to be quieter than, say, a rabbit vibrator. They're easy to hide in your lingerie drawer, handbag, glove compartment or suitcase for a weekend away.
If you're new to bullet vibrators or are considering adding one to your toy collection, here's a guide that will help you decide which one to get.
Anal douches are incredibly useful tools for fans of anal sex toys and anal sex. They work by cleansing the anus before penetration, ensuring that it’s as clean and hygienic as possible. This not only ensures your play won’t be messy, it alleviates any associated fears, helping you to relax into your pleasure. Many people like to douche in particular before enjoy oral stimulation of the anus, known as rimming or analingus.
Anal douching flushes water through the anus and it then expelled, leaving it clean. Douches come in different sizes and shapes to suit all levels of experience and are incredibly simple to use, even the first time.
If you're baffled by basques or confused by corsets, Lovehoney's easy lingerie guidewill explain everything. Armed with this information, choosing the perfect lingerie to make you or your partner feel sexy and confident should be easy.
We've split this guide into structured lingerie (basques, corsets and other figure-hugging and body-sculpting garments) and unstructured lingerie (flirty, feminine and comfortable lingerie like babydolls, chemises and camisole sets) to suit your mood or your partner's style. We also explain the different types of panties, thongs and G-strings as well as sex-on-legs hosiery (from stockings and garters, to bodystockings and tights).
Not all vibrators have been designed with anal use in mind, and if you use a normal vibe for anal stimulation or penetration it could cause discomfort or even get stuck. Forget trying to manoeuvre your vibrating bullet or favorite rabbit vibrator so that your anus gets some good vibe loving - with powerful waves of vibrations and a deep, satisfying feeling of penetration, an anal vibrator is specially designed to give you incredibly enhanced orgasms.
