When you think of foreplay, do you think touching, kissing, massaging? And do you think that happens in the bedroom as simply a perfunctory “warmup” for the big deed? Like, say, 10 minutes worth?
Well, think again. Foreplay isn’t just for the bedroom. In fact, it can be a geographically diverse series of events! It should even start wayyyy before sex.
This article will help you prime yourself and your partner for a sexy night. Here are some things you can do to make the leading up to sex (almost) as good as the sex itself.
With some states coming out of Covid-19 lockdown, many people are venturing out, having BBQs, trying to responsibly socialize and might feel like they have been let out of jail of social “confinement.” During the past few months of quarantine time (and especially since May was Masturbation Month), a lot of people have been focusing on masturbation as sexual release. Yay! But don’t let up on this focus just because you are potentially unleashed into the world and able to start to touch others.
This month is Pride month, and this year, our focus here at Sex With Emily during Pride is “playfulness.” In the theme of playfulness, finding new ways to play with your body is one of the best ways to spend Pride month!
Here are some ways you can “play” with your body.
Recently, I was on a Zoom call for a class on vulnerability. The facilitator asked us what we are doing during this pandemic to improve an area of our lives. I realized that my answer was unique: I have been working on strengthening my pelvic floor.
You may not realize, but exercising your pelvic floor is something you can do for yourself during this stressful time. All genders benefit from strengthening this area, as it affects your health in a variety of ways.
A strong pelvic floor can help support female organs, as well as the bladder. It may help prevent UTIs – which can get in the way of pain-free sex. Even better, a strong pelvic floor may help support a better sex life, affording better orgasms and increased genital sensitivity.
If you have a penis, a stronger pelvic floor can help with better range of motion for thrusting, and allow you to ejaculate further and with more control! Woohoo!
Let’s get into two ways you can strengthen your pelvic floor.
Most people think that sex toys are just for women, but that is not the case! In fact, they can be an amazing addition to any man’s sexual arsenal. Whether you’re going solo or with a partner, toys can deepen your pleasure, increase your erection time, boost sexual satisfaction during partnered sex, and help you experience multiple orgasms.
Today, we are going to explore five key reasons why you should try out a new sex toy or two. Or four. Or more. Who’s counting?
Covid-19 is changing the world as we know it. One industry that is seeing a big boon in sales due in part to the stay-at-home orders and a growing need for self-pleasure is the sex toy industry.
With masturbation being the one truly safest sex you can have during quarantine, finding and purchasing a new toy has become something of a new pastime. The privacy factor of being able to order online has also fed into the rush to purchase a new sex toy during lockdown. Yet, as the LA Times reports, “sex-toy sales are up, stigma is down.”
Meanwhile, one sex toy maker, Muse, has switched over its manufacturing from lube to hand sanitizer.
By the time my partner and I had settled into a sex routine, I had already forged a firm and profound bond with my Magic Wand.
No person had ever been able to deliver the type of orgasmic experience that my wand and I shared. It satisfied my sexual needs efficiently and effectively, and continues to everyday, no matter my relationship status. Continue Reading
Masturbation May is Marching on! In all the discussion of self love, we would be remiss not to honor a gold standard in masturbatory pleasure. I’m talking about the almighty “rabbit.”
The rabbit-style vibrator is one of the most iconic sex toy styles and known for its internal and external stimulation.
In this article we will briefly cover what it is, its history and presence in the collective sexual consciousness. Plus we’ll tell you all about our current favorite.
The birds are chirping. The sun is warmer. You can’t go anywhere anyway (thanks ‘rona!). So it is time to do some spring cleaning. You know – that tradition of cleaning your home from top to bottom, even under the sofa cushions.
But don’t forget that sex drawer! Yes, sex toys need some spring cleaning, too. Many of us don’t realize that we have to clean our toys regularly, not just after use. We also may not realize that it might be time to refresh our collection.
Here are some tips on how to clean your sex toys, as well as a little “out with the old, in with the new.”
2020 – a year of uncertainty, change and growth. It’s the new election cycle, a new decade, a health emergency, and an order to stay at home. But it can also be a time to try things that you may have been meaning to get to on your list. Whether that is trying a new hair style, or seeing if crop tops are ‘your thing’, it might be time to also try some new things on the sexual frontier. One of those could be prostate play.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, everyone has an opinion about sex toys. They’ve been around since the dawn of time and have a couple hundred years of controversy to their name. For something so hotly contested, as you can imagine, there are a LOT of factors to consider.
We LOVE them here at Sex With Emily, but we understand that everyone is different. So to make sure you have the full scoop, we’ve rounded up our favorite sex toy-related blogs and podcasts that can hopefully help open your eyes to everything they have to offer.
