Sex toys aren't just for singletons, they're fab for enhancing sex as a couple too. As toys loose their stigma, more and more couples are discovering that playing with sex toys together can turn good sex into GREAT sex.
Introducing a sex toy into your relationship can feel intimidating, if you are unsure of your partner's response, but it's important to remember that a toy is simply a TOY ... not a replacement or comment on your sex life.
For women, toys can add an intensity that better guarantees an orgasm and for men they can add different kind of thrills...
For new couples, toys are a great way to explore all the different ways to delight each other and start the relationship the way you mean to go on, with a creativity that goes far beyond the missionary position..
And for long-term partners, toys are a brilliant way to spice up sex and re-kindle the excitement of new-lust fever...
But what makes a great sex toy for a couple?
In our London store, we advise and match couples to the right toy everyday, and understand what are the turn-ons and the turn-offs - here we bring you the top 5 toys for couples to share.
1. Best for Every Couple & Every Kind of Sex!
Lube enhances every kind of sex you have together...
Our No 1, all-time best 'toy' for couples is lube. Lube enhances every kind of sex you have together, bringing a new slipperiness, and sensitivity that natural wetness simply doesn't match - no matter how copious!
From erotic massage, breast-play, hand-jobs to intercourse, by way of every intimate touch in between, lube makes your two bodies connect and glide sensually together and liberates all worries of staying wet, no matter what you get up to or for how long!
2. Best Discreet Couples' Toys.
Every toy in our website can be shared by couples - there are no rules, so if something catches your eye together, go for it!
But if you are just starting out on the toy-front, it's best to choose something that doesn't feel like you've imposed a threesome.
A couples' sex toy shouldn't make either one of you feel inadequate or left out. Nor should it be intimidating - we don't recommend surprising your partner with a large penetrative toy!
Lelo Lily - £99 - Gorgeous design-led toy that can be cupped in hand or laid over your clitoris during sex
Designer vibrators are popular among couples as they add stylish buzz to the bedroom without either one of the couple feeling replaced or intimidated. A luxury vibrator is simply beautiful pleasure object that feels like a sophisticated addition to the love-life you share together. They are beautifully packaged too, which makes them the best toy to buy your partner as a gift.
Jimmy Jane Hello Touch £46 Turns your hand into a vibrator for skin-on-skin thrills
Feelztoys Tongue Toys - £26 - Two tiny tongue vibes (one for each of you!)
A vibrator slipped onto a finger or tongue makes a great toy for couples, adding a tingly vibe wherever it touches...
These toys simply add a different sensation to oral or manual play; a sensation your finger or tongue ( no matter how expert!) can't deliver on its own. Playful and novel, they are made for couples sex!
Dual Bullet Vibrator - £24 - Tiny, intense and one each!
Secret Vibrator £35 can be cupped discreetly in the hand to deliver its thrill where it touches...
Sh! Bullet Vibrator - £10 - Teeny, powerful and perfect for extra strong clitoral stimulation during sex
An egg or bullet vibrator also makes a good toy for couples to share. Small and discreet they can be cupped in the hand, held against the cheek or nuzzled against your clitoris during sex, without 'getting in the way'
Less of a financial investment than a luxury, designer vibrator, these toys are ideal if you would like to explore adding a buzz without breaking the bank.
3. Best Hands-Free Toys to Enhance Intercourse.
Intercourse features top of the menu for most M/F couples, but less than 20% of women can climax through penetration alone. This isn't anything to feel inadequate about, just a fact that women usually need external clitoral stimulation in order to reach the Big O.
So any toy that stimulates your clitoris during intercourse makes a great sex toy.
Lelo Noa £65
An intercourse vibrator is specially designed for you wear inside, whilst still leaving enough room for him to slip inside too
Toys such as the We-Vibe or Noa will stimulate your clitoris and G-Spot at the same time, delivering amazing hands-free, dual stimulation.
LurveHeart Vibrating Cock Ring £9
These toys are an investment, so another good option is a vibrating ring worn on his penis will vibrate your clitoris during penetrative sex, adding that all-important extra stimulation. For him, they deliver a pleasurable squeeze to keep his erection stronger, for longer.
Both of these toys will give him a vibrating thrill as well - now that's sharing!
4. Best Toys to Spice-Up Dates.
Great sex is all about shared intimacy and playfulness, so what better way for couples to add an extra thrill to date-night but to play with a remote-controlled vibrator, with one of you controlling the buzz and the other receiving.
Remote Play Vibrator £35
Remote Vibrating Knickers £35
A remote-controlled vibrator or pair of remote vibrating panties can be worn, and played with, discreetly in public.
Operating with many meters of distance between you and delivering a range of escalating and throbbing patterns to surprise, delight and tease, no matter how far you or your playmate wanders, you'll both feel connected with a shared sense of secret 'naughtiness'
... and there's no reason why the bullet can't be slipped into his Y-fronts and you control the remote!
5. Best for Long-Distance Love Affairs
We-Vibe connects to the We-Connect App for remote-control pleasure from anywhere in the world!
Kiiroo Onyx - Bluetooth 2-Way Interactive Internet Fleshlight Sex Toy for Men
Kiiroo Pearl Bluetooth Vibrator - Interactive Internet Sex Toy for Women
Technology has finally caught up with the fact that many a modern relationship is often separated by miles between you or may even be a purely interweb affair.
Sex toys that can be controlled by and operated within secure apps address this by introducing intimate thrills and shared connection even when couples are continents apart.
Not cheap (and certainly not for technophobes!) these toys are playthings for a brave new world!
