On today’s show, Emily is helping you get your relationships and your sex lives back on track by taking calls and answering emails.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
My sex life with my husband almost exclusively revolves around nipple play. He and I both love giving and receiving nipple stimulation, and it’s our primary foreplay (usually a nipple-69).
In an effort to keep things new and fun, I’ve researched nipple toys but can’t seem to find any with consistently positive reviews. We’ve talked about clamps, suction toys, and even pumps, but we aren’t sure what is reliable, pain-free (we like teasing and pleasure, not pain), and useful for both women and men.
Do you have any advice for what toys or techniques could enhance our somewhat unconventional—but very satisfying!—routine?

When it comes to gifts, everyone knows that it’s the thought that counts, and getting a little creative is the best way to do that. This Valentine’s Day, don’t just buy your love something and be done with it, make it the inspiration of the night! Have a night of sensation, of exploration, of fantasy.
Hey, you. Yes, you—exhausted, resentful, sexless mom of three, I’m talking to you.
I know. There’s magenta Sharpie on the wall, a 3-inch layer of dog hair on the floor, and you just stepped on something slimy that you think was cheese (you’ll check it later). You haven’t had a haircut (other than when you took the scissors to your own hair) in eight months and your feet are so calloused, you could run the Kentucky Derby and no one would look twice. Every part of that is true.
But we need to talk about just one thing: the sexless part. Keep reading.
The Adult Novelty Manufacturer’s Expo.
Though the name doesn’t necessarily sing sexuality, the experience certainly did. Last week, we had the pleasure of accompanying the marvelous Emily Morse to this S-expo that happens twice a year (in January and July), showcasing some of the top products on the market.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year now and I want to try some new things to keep it fun and new. However, he and I are both on a serious budget, so I want to know –– what are the best “bang for your buck” toys?
I would like to try more than one and want something that will be safe and enjoyable for both of us.

When you’re getting a sex toy for your lover, while it may be a gift for them, you know you’ll want to reap some of the benefits, too. Or, if you’re a really good friend to a couple – a really good friend – looking to help spice up their sex lives, you want to get a toy that both of them will appreciate.
Most pleasure products are either for men or for women, but there are a few out there that were made with any gender in mind (even if you don’t identify). So, whether you’re using it together, or taking turns (after cleaning, of course), a toy that anyone can use brings a whole new meaning to sharing is caring.
Unlocking a woman’s pleasure is not always an easy feat, so it’s no wonder there are so many toys geared towards doing just that.
From external to internal to anal stimulation – there are so many ways to explore the complexities of the female body.
What better way to show the lovely lady in your life you care than with a gadget designed to revere and rejoice that exploration?
