So, you enjoy sexy times - but your libido is not what you want it to be. If you're a woman, you might well be wishing there was a little pill you could take to fix it. Or, you could look on your dinner plate - here are some foods that will help perk up your sex drive.
1. Red meat - preferably grass-fed beef. True, too much red meat can be bad for you, but a bit can help - it contains plenty of zinc, which increases your testosterone (did you know that women need enough testosterone to be sexually healthy?)
2. Salmon and other fatty fish - improves circulation, including blood flow to the genitals. Oh, and it's good for your mood, too, and if your mood is good, you're more likely to want some play time.
3. Eggs - eggs boost energy and focus and contain a lot of Vitamin B6, which balances sexual hormone levels. The protein content will also boost your stamina without adding too many calories.
4. Chocolate - because we all know chocolate is an aphrodisiac, as well as relaxing you, and well...enough of it can be almost as good as sex anyway - chocolate contains phenylethylamine, which releases the same endorphins as sex. Besides, an excuse to eat chocolate?
5. Oats - oats boost testosterone and contain L-arginine. L-arginine is used to treat erectile dysfunction in men, but it can also help support blood flow to the clitoris. Hrm. How about oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
6. Watermelon - which some researchers say is even better than chocolate. It also contains a precursor of L-arginine and appears to increase libido.
7. Avocados - hand over the guac - avocadoes contain healthy fats which improve vaginal lubrication and thus make sex more pleasurable. Unpleasant vaginal sex can lead to anxiety which can then feed back in and kill your libido altogether.
8. Strawberries - pretty much all berries contain great antioxidants and lots of vitamin C, which helps sexual functioning (in both men and women). Why strawberries? Because they taste good with chocolate - there's a reason chocolate covered strawberries are a traditional Valentine's day gift.
What about foods to avoid? Alcohol, especially as it can lead to bad decisions about sex. Caffeine can increase anxiety, which lowers sex drive. And diet soda - especially if sweetened with aspartame, which affects serotonin levels and depresses overall mood.
So, eat better and have more fun - but don't overdo the red meat. And stop searching for that famed female viagra.
A vibrator, generally, is a powered device designed to give sexual pleasure to women, although some types are also suitable for anal play by men. There are overall several types of vibrator.
Clitoral massagers are made to be used directly on the clitoris - they come in varying shapes and sizes to suit differences in anatomy. Some of them come with remote control or are designed to mimic the sensation of oral sex.
G spot vibrators are internal vibrators designed to make it particularly easy to find a woman's "G spot." Some are also designed to stimulate the clitoris. These vibrators are designed for vaginal insertion and sometimes sculpted to resemble a penis.
Wand massagers can be used both as a vibrator and as a "body massager" for relaxation - in fact, they are very good for relieving muscle aches after physical exertion. They tend to be stronger than other sex toys and are generally used through clothing. Wand massagers also come in a mini size for travel use.
Rabbit vibrators are so called because they have a clitoral stimulator that looks like a set of rabbit ears. They are designed for simultaneous internal and external stimulation, and are considered a symbol of female sexuality.
And finally, for the guys, prostate massagers are internal anal vibrators designed for prostate stimulation and to help guys find their P spot. So, yes, vibrators are not just for women. (Although women who enjoy anal play might try an anal vibrator too).
So - all different kinds of vibrators. Which one is best? It depends! Women who do not get much from vaginal penetration might be most comfortable with a clitoral massager. A wand massager has the advantage of actually being good for those sore spots as well, but may be too powerful for some users. Some women consider rabbit vibes the ultimate sex toy.
Within these categories, there are hundreds of different shapes and styles - and colors - making the choice even harder. It's a shame there aren't vibrator libraries where we can go try a few out! The right vibrator depends on the kind of stimulation you prefer, where you want to use it (If you travel a lot, you probably want a mini wand), and your body - which you know better than anyone else. Regardless, though, if you take the time to look you can be sure and certain the right vibrator is out there for you. It might not be the same one that is right for your best friend - so remember, it's all personal!
An "anal douche" is a rather sexier way of saying enema.
Anal douching is practised by many gay men and by women who enjoy anal play. An anal douche is used to clean out the lower part of the anus and intestinal system before sex so that there are fewer nasty surprises. Not everyone finds them necessary - it depends on how "clean" you tend to be in general, and how tight your movements are. Excessive douching can lead to problems with the balance of the gut bacteria - anal douches have to be used correctly.
Always clean a douche before using, do not use soap - use plain tepid water or products designed for anal cleaning. Soap can cause irritation. Oh, and use lube first. Douching should be done about 45 minutes before you plan to have sex.
There are several different kinds of anal douche out there. Bulb douches are the easiest to use and often the cheapest. They give a relatively shallow cleanse - so if you are using large dildos or fisting they might not be enough. For that, shower douches - which are connected to the shower or tub faucet and can provide a variety of pressure. Water bag douches can also provide a deeper cleanse and are easier for travel.
Douche nozzles can be plain or grooved/beaded. Grooved nozzles are found to be more pleasurable by some but cause discomfort to others - you might want to try more than one to see what is best for you. The size and length of the nozzle is another variable that - well, it depends on how you are put together downstairs.
Bulb douches are sufficient for most and are the cheapest and easiest to use - look at the various types and see which one is right for you. Both bulb and shower douches can also be purchased with attachments for both vagina and anal douching - for women who enjoy both kinds of penetration or couples.
Again, always use tepid, plain water for anal douching, and do not douche too often - only do it when the planned play makes it necessary. As long as you are careful, anal douching is safe and can significantly help reduce the mess. It can also reduce the higher risk of urinary tract infections that can come from practising anal sex. So - prepare properly for your fun and find the right anal douche for you and/or your partner. Be willing to experiment - you might need to try two or three before getting it right.
Ever been told masturbation will make you go blind? That particular old wives' tale still circulates widely. Masturbation is also seen as detrimental to normal sexual relationships and possibly as having a negative effect on male fertility. Much of the negative hype, though, is really about sexual prudery, not health.
In fact, in most cases, a bit of happy solo time is beneficial to your health - and there is no reason to feel any shame about it.
For men, masturbation may help prevent prostate cancer - it cleans out the urogenital tract and prevents the build up of toxins. Of course, having sex has the same effect - but if you don't have a current partner, then masturbation is just as good. And for women, it can reduce the risk of UTIs and increase blood flow to the vagina. This is particularly important for post menopausal women, who might find regular masturbation will make normal heterosexual sex more comfortable by reducing dryness and narrowing. For older men, it can have similar benefits - helping get and sustain better erections by working out the muscles that support healthy sex - and of course it can keep you, as the ED drug adds say, "Healthy enough for sexual activity."
For both sexes, masturbation can help reduce anxiety, it can help you sleep, and it can improve self esteem and self love - after all, you have sex with people you love, right? Oh, and for women, masturbation, especially with vibrators or toys, can actually improve sex with a partner by helping them know what they want and where the G-spot is. If you can't find it yourself, how can you tell your partner where it is? For men, masturbation can be a great way to practice taking longer - good for you and your partner.
Experiencing more orgasms in general is good for your vagina if you have one, for your heart, for your immune system and for your mood. So, especially if you are currently not getting laid enough, don't worry about enjoying some solo fun, with or without toys or tools.Now, yes, masturbation can cause problems - if you do it too much. But as long as it isn't interfering with your work, your family, or your relationship with your partner or partners - then there's no health problems to worry about. Yes, sex addiction is a thing, but don't let it get in between you and the very real benefits. Your eyesight will not be affected at all.
Sex toy is a wonderful way to get to know yourself better and have fun in the process, but picking the right one for you tends to be a very personal matter. Everyone has at least a slightly different preference when it comes to those most intimate moments in the bedroom. If you have a significant other, sex toys can even be a way to spice things up and bring you even closer to your partner. Luckily for everyone, there's likely to be a toy to suit your own personal needs. Shopping online does add a level of discretion, and lets you take advantage of everything from customer service support to user reviews.
How do you know for sure which sex toy is right for you? While the answer could be summarized as simply choosing the toy that turns you on, most will need to understand what each type of toy does before being able to know for sure. Lets take a look at some of the more commonly used sex toys.
Dildos [For women, men, and couples]
Dildos are often made to resemble a penis, but they do come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. Dildos are used primarily for penetration, whether its in the vagina, or wherever you would like to use it. Some dildos have suction cups at the base, so you can attach them to, lets say, the side of your bath tub and ride it to ultimate climax, hands free.
When you're looking for a dildo, the most important factor is usually size. Most of the time, the length and circumference of the dildo will be listed in details. The average size of dildos tends to be about 5 to 6 inches in length, which is perfect for most women. If you're looking for a way to feel some climactic penetration without the need for batteries, a dildo is an excellent choice.
Vibrators [For women, men, and couples]
Vibrators come in many forms, but the most popular are the bullet vibrator and the rabbit style vibrator. A bullet is a very small vibrator, usually no bigger than your thumb, that women and couples use to provide clitoral stimulation. Many women swear by them, as they're portable and you can easily hide them in purse. Rabbit style vibrators are essentially dildos with an attached clitoral vibrator, so you get double the pleasure. Some rabbit vibrators have rotating beads or heads that will stimulate the g-spot to help you reach an even higher level of ecstasy. Men can gain pleasure from prostate vibrators as well, as the p-spot are stimulated in the similar way to that a g-spot. Some are battery powered, but newer vibrators are offering the convenience of USB charging. If you want more intense stimulation, vibrators are definitely the go-to toy.
Male Masturbator [For men and couples]
Masturbators or masturbation sleeves are textured "sleeves" that are made so that the man can insert his penis and stroke away to ecstasy. Sometimes they resemble vaginas, but some have additional textures to give you sensations that you may not be able to get from the "real thing". If you're looking to either make your masturbation session more pleasurable and are tired of the same old hands, then a masturbation sleeve is the way to go.
One of the most popular masturbator is the Fleshlight. They come in a sturdy plastic case with a latex masturbation sleeve inside. The case keeps it firm and tight, and can even provide suction to enhance the experience, as well as making for a discrete look so you don't have to worry about anyone noticing what it is. There are a variety of textures, from ridges to spirals, to really take you to the next level of pleasure. Cleanup is a breeze, since you can just remove the cap on the end and rinse with warm water.
Cock Rings [For men and couples]
Cock rings are rings that you place on the penis during arousal. They can serve to keep the penis harder, or they can enhance pleasure for both you and your partner. Some of them have bullet vibrators attached to them to enhance pleasure for both the man that is wearing it and also provide clitoral stimulation for the woman that he is with. It can also turn the entire penis into a vibrator itself if the vibrations are strong enough. A cock ring can definitely be a fun addition to play time in the bedroom.

Sex toys can heighten sexual pleasure. They comes in a variety of vibrations, contours, materials and textures. The shelf life of your toy can differ given these variations.
A good sex toy is a clean sex toy. Maintenance is vital, not only for your health and internal hygiene but also so they last and remain in good condition.
Cleaning is important, as well as motor care. With simple planning, understanding and execution you can have a healthy compliment of toys which are well-maintained.
When using your sex toys, clean them before and after each use. You don’t want to put dust and other things inside of your body, so cleaning beforehand is highly recommended. Keep them in a plastic or silk bag when not in use.
Of course, cleaning after use is important.
The type of cleaner is important. If you wouldn’t put it inside of you, don’t use it. No bleach, no heavy-duty cleaners. It’s best to use specialized cleaning products, which can sanitize toys, because they contain antibacterial ingredients that eliminate mold, mildew, microbes, and fungus. These not only deal with the biological issues, but the sludge formed by lubricants.
Read the packaging carefully to determine what kinds of materials the toy contains, often a manufacturer will include cleaning instructions.
Glass, hard plastic, stainless steel and silicone are hard, nonporous surfaces and they are easier to clean with just a quick wipe of some antibacterial soap and water. They don’t allow bacteria to penetrate and lodge in their surfaces. They can be sanitized in the dishwasher as long as they aren’t motorized.
Leather, rubber and vinyl toys can be damaged by soaps and they need special care to safeguard they are hygienic. They can’t be boiled or put into the dishwasher. If you are lacking a proper cleanser, you can use a condom. When used by yourself, it is permissible, to use hot water, but thoroughly dry them and then powder them with corn starch until you can clean them properly. Never use rubbing alcohol.
A caution if you are unsure of how porous the toy is, and you have multiple partners, because disease, infections, and bacteria can be passed.
Sex toys that contain mechanical parts should never be submerged. In fact, remove the batteries before cleaning and storing. Store them in a cool, dark, dry place.
With proper cleaning, storing and maintenance you can have many years of pleasure and fun.
Some men feel threatened that a dildo or vibrator might actually give you more pleasure than they do. This is a common insecurity among men. It might take a little convincing to explain to them patiently that a little self love with a toy does not replace them in any way at all. It’s just an added way to relax, and have a little fun.
It might help to introduce the toy in question into your own lovemaking with your partner. Let them experiment with it on you, and you on them if they are game. Most men are pretty open to all kinds of sex play as long as you ask them first. You’d be surprised at how ready to try new things they will be if they know that you are up for anything.
Overall if your mate is truly bothered by what’s in your drawer, and refuses to be dissuaded by the items, then it might be time to store them elsewhere. It might seem like close access by your bedside is best, but it doesn’t hurt to move them to a drawer that is less visible to your partner. You might also not use them as much if you are in a committed relationship, especially if you are having a ton of new relationship sex that is popular in the beginning.
If you feel like this relationship is worth going the distance then as part of any good relationship, there has to be compromise. Many women won’t be with someone who is so closed minded about sexual things. So if you think that he won't budge about your “goodie drawer” then he might not be the right guy for you anyway.
