    Which is the Best Anal Toy for People with Vaginas?

    Lovehoney needed someone with a vagina to try a variety of anal toys, so being the selfless individual that I am, I volunteered. I know, I know, it’s a bit of bummer but don’t worry, it’s all behind me now.

    Jokes aside, I loved trying out these four new toys. Ok, they’re not ‘new’ per se, but all were new to me.

    I haven’t had much experience with anal play or anal sex. This isn’t because I don’t want to take part in this fantastic form of fornication, quite the contrary.

    I’m singing from the same hymn sheet as Community’s Troy Barnes.

    I’m just content to move at my own pace, and that’s ok. I’m not ashamed of my beginner’s butt. In a way, being an anal novice gave me the edge in this task.

    I approached everything from a fresh perspective, and I’ve now determined which of the following is the best anal toy for people with vaginas.

    How to Combine Sex and Mindfulness

    We’ve all had mindless sex at some point. I’m talking about the drift into mind-wandering that can happen during some of our greatest pleasures, consciously or subconsciously.

    From picturing your favorite porn scene or delectable fantasy, to dealing with anxiety ridden evaluations of our bodies or performance, to fearing contraception failure, or your neighbours overhearing through your paper thin walls.

    There are hundreds of opportunities for your mind to wander away from what’s happening in front of you, or to you.

    I’m pretty much a stranger to mindfulness.

    In fact, when trying to learn about what it was, I watched a video on x2 playback to take in the information more quickly. Ironic, huh?

    From what I’ve learnt, I think that mindfulness could be the answer to those mid-sex distractions.

    The thoughts will still appear, but rather than allowing them to absorb us completely, we can use mindfulness to bring us back into the zone to connect with ourselves, our sexual partner(s) and ultimately, experience more pleasure.
