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.

When most people think of bondage, they think of a man or woman being chained to the bed posts with a set of furry handcuffs. Although this is a fun way to get into tie-up fun, there is a lot more to enjoy and explore when it comes to bondage.
Bondage can be used to pull parts of the body together, spread certain limbs, fix your body to another object or even create the effect of mummification.
Whatever you want to try, bondage is a sure-fire way to broaden your sexual horizons, spice up your bedroom antics and increase your repertoire of sexual and sensual techniques.
Above: Perfect for everyone from beginners to professionals, bondage tape is one of our most popular types of restraint. Want to know why? Just watch this video and let Jess Wilde give you 5 reasons why you should try it!
Cock rings are one of the simplest sex aids around. Cock rings work by preventing blood from flowing back down the penis, which in turn helps to make erections feel harder and last longer than normal, making your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely. Gentle and safe, cock rings are a great alternative to libido enhancing pills and delay sprays.
Cock rings are also available with clitoral stimulators attached in the shape of little spikes or nobbles, but more excitingly you can buy vibrating cock rings. Providing special sensations to both partners, these mini male sex toys should be an essential in every bedside drawer.
When choosing a sex toy, the material is just as important as the power, price and function.
What feels good for one person won’t feel so hot for another, some people have allergies (such as a latex) and others are eager to avoid phthalates. Whatever your reasons for being interested in a certain sex toy material, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right toy for you.

Silicone lube is a water-resistant lube that's safe to use with condoms and ideal for long-lasting lubrication during sex. Lots of people love silicone lube as it doesn't end up feeling sticky like a water-based lube does. Silicone lube is even waterproof, so it's fantastic for fulfilling bathroom sex fantasies.
Silicone sex lube is generally more expensive than water-based lube (because it contains more expensive ingredients) but you get a lot for your money. The long-lasting properties mean you won’t need to keep topping up your lubrication and you’ll need less of it too.
One important thing to note is that you can’t use silicone lube with your silicone sex toys, but it’s perfect for your glass or plastic toys and ideal for sex.
