The Durex Guide to Sex Toys: Vibrators

The Durex Guide to Sex Toys: Vibrators

We all get a buzz from our turn-ons, but do we all get turned on from a buzz? Vibrators along with dildos are the most common sex toys available today. While you might snigger at them often being coyly packaged as ‘personal massagers’, that’s exactly what they were invented for. The first vibrator was created in the 19th century to help aid with muscle and joint pain – unless you buy in to the apocryphal tale of Cleopatra inventing the first by filling a hollow gourd with angry bees. These Victorian vibrators were soon repurposed by enterprising physicians to help induce ‘paroxysmal convulsions’ in women diagnosed with hysteria – it was only later that they realised that these convulsions were in fact the long medically- disregarded female orgasm.

Spooning is a great start or end to an intimate session, or something a couple can do just to be close with each other, both physically and emotionally. However, there’s no reason that this should be relegated to the fringes of sex – as important as that is – this position also offers a great opportunity for penetration.

Pleasure Gels: More than just Lubrication

Pleasure gels and lubricants can improve sex in a number of ways. They reduce friction, making everything a little more… slippery, and a lot more fun. Coupled with the added sensations some pleasure gels can bring (heating, cooling, or tingling) lubrication can really ramp up the excitement of sex. Take a look at our guide to lube and pleasure gels below.
Condoms: Choosing the One for You

Condoms: Choosing the One for You

Many people have their favourite type of condom. For some, a feeling of safety may be paramount. For others, they may want something thinner to help feel closer to their partner. Still others may love the feeling of a ribbed or dotted condom for extra sensation. We may all have our preferences, but it’s also great to experiment and try something new. Condoms also help one feel safe in the knowledge that they’re protected from the risk of pregnancy or infection.
