Oh hello, pals. Are you ready for our latest Sexhacker update? If not, too bad cause it’s here anyway.
Lovehoney recently did some investigating into masturbation habits in Australia and found (based on a sample of 1,000 people) that 75 per cent of people masturbate, with more than one in ten revealing they get off this way at least once a day.
With that considered, I thought I’d take a peek at the ways you can get some more enjoyment out of your solo play – specifically with the use of sex toys.
There’s a whole lot of variety out there and people experience pleasure in all kinds of ways, so it’s worth thinking about what will work for you before picking out a companion and naming it, y’know?
To help this process along, I sought out the assistance of someone who really knows what she’s talking about when it comes to sex. That would be Lovehoney Ambassador and resident Sexologist, Chantelle Otten.
She offered her advice on which sex toys best simulate specific sex acts; shared her tips on the devices that work best during certain sexual activities, and gave some insight into the incredible range on offer in the world of sex tech.
Let’s dig in, shall we?
There’s more variety out there than you may assume
While we’re getting more comfortable with sex talk (somewhat), many Aussies still aren’t aware of the full spectrum of options available in the sex tech market.
Otten explained, “There is still a lingering taboo around sex and sexuality, so people tend to shy away from open and honest conversations around sex tech and toys.
Whilst most people may be aware of things like traditional dildos and rabbit vibrators, they may not know about the various clitoral stimulation toys, male masturbators, remote and app controlled sex toys, and vibrating cockring or anal toy options available on the market now
There are also some exciting things happening in the world of sex toys suited to all kinds of bodies, which we love to see spot vibrator image
If you want to simulate a specific sex act…
There are a bunch of options available that seek to replicate the sensations of sex acts folks tend to enjoy. Otten shared a handful of suggestions that work particularly well.
- The Blowmotion range are an innovative collection of male masturbators designed to feel like the real deal, simulating blow jobs.
- If oral sex and clitoral stimulation is how you get off, to pleasure that sweet little lady bean. Featuring gentle sucking sensations and pulsations reminiscent of your partner going down on you.
- If you just can’t get enough of your partner and all that they do for you, you can clone them!
How about toys to use during sexual activity?
Okay, I know we’re chatting masturbation here, but if you’re interested in pairing a sex toy with a partnered sex act there is (unsurprisingly) a long list of options there, too. Here is what Otten recommends:
The humble missionary position is not one to be overlooked! You can take the sensations for both you and your partner to the next level by adding in a hands free toy. This bad boy is an exclusive collaboration between the pleasure experts at Lovehoney and We-Vibe, that fits between you and your partner during intercourse, delivering intense vibrations and leaving your hands free to wander.
Love the deep penetration and g-spot stimulation that comes with doggy style and want to add a sex toy to the mix? Try adding a clit vibe! vibrator features a ball shaped tip that delivers pinpoint vibrations straight to the sweet spot. Plus the Meile is made from recycled aluminium and soft body-safe silicone is good for the environment. Win win!
The reverse cowgirl offers both partners easy access to the backdoor so why not try incorporating some anal play into this classic position? With both partners adding either anal beads or butt plugs you can take your orgasms to the next level, potentially achieving a blended orgasm.
