We’re often told technology has no place in the bedroom. And while that may be true for using our smartphones or tablets just before bedtime, when it comes to sex, it’s a very different story.
Technology and sex toys go hand in hand. More and more advances in the sex toy world have allowed people to experience a better sex life, whether that’s alone or with a partner.
If you’re reading this, it’s quite possible you have - or at the very least, someone you know has - tried a sex toy. And of course why wouldn’t you? They’re great. You might use yours every day or only break it out as a birthday treat, either way it’s likely to give you some bloody awesome orgasms. The kind of orgasms, in fact, that you might want for your significant other. If you need more persuading as to why your boyfriend needs a sex toy then here are seven failsafe reasons.
A recent study revealed that over 50 percent of couples are more likely to get frisky while on their vacation, and it’s no surprise really. If stress is one of the biggest contributors to loss of libido, then it’s not rocket science to figure out that less stress = more sex. And isn’t that what holidays are all about?
Now, if you’re someone who likes to add a lil’ something extra to your sexytime, and are lucky enough to be travelling abroad this year for your vacation, you may want to take a sex toy with you.
Spanking is great. It builds anticipation, provides scintillating sensation and can amp up role play. If you’re thinking about trying a paddle, you probably know all this already and have experimented with palm spanks. (If you haven’t, you should do that first.)
If you have, indeed, sampled the delights of hand-to-butt spanks and your sub enjoys it but wants more, then a paddle is a must-have for your toy box.
While women are still significantly more likely to own a sex toy - and to talk about them freely - the male sex toy market has soared in sales over the last few years. More and more men are experimenting and exploring. And there’s far more on offer than ever before, with toys promising to skyrocket your solo time and add exciting new sensations to your sex life. Here are three of the best.
So you’ve devoured the books, watched the movies, and you’re eager to indulge in a little Fifty Shades of Grey roleplay. Of course, our favourite scenes from the books are the ones which unfold in the infamous Red Room of Pain, Christian’s luxuriously furnished, leather and mahogany-clad playroom.
We’re not suggesting you soundproof your spare room or turn your home office into a den of iniquity just yet – for starters you probably don’t have Mr Grey’s magical money tree! But with a few toys, tweaks and accessories you can enjoy Red Room-inspired revelry, too.
There’s a common belief that double-ended dildos are for lesbians only (thanks mainly to porn films). But these days, people of all sexualities are discovering the delights that double-ended dildos can bring. If you're looking to very literally 'share the pleasure' with your partner, or even yourself, double dildos are for you.
Australia is one of the fastest growing vegan markets in the world. We have no shortage of food, drinks, coffee shops, even dessert bars that pimp themselves out as vegan.
So, that’s your social life and your stomach sorted, but what about your sex life? Should we ever compromise on our beliefs to get our kicks? The answer is, quite simply, no.
Dear Lovehacker, I've been living with my boyfriend for over a year now. Everything had been great until these past few weeks. He's been distant and preoccupied, not answering my calls, taking hours to get back to me, coming home late, and so on. Last week after I worked the graveyard shift, I came home and found sex toys in the shower (dildos). He said he used it on himself...
One of the great things about strap-ons is that anyone can use them. If you have a penis, you can use a strap-on. If you don't have a penis, you can use a strap-on. You can use a strap-on to penetrate a partner of any gender, to subvert stereotypical gender roles or to play with those roles. You can use one for fun, or you can use one to manage erectile or orgasmic challenges. You can use a strap-on for vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, manual sex or masturbation.
Cock rings are one of the simplest and most popular sex aids around. They work by providing a constricting squeeze to your penis when it’s erect, stopping the blood from flowing back down. This can help your erection to feel harder and last longer than normal, offering all kinds of benefits such as longer sex sessions and more intense orgasms, not to mention boosted confidence and fun for both partners.
Dear Lovehacker, My boyfriend and I are trying to be more sexually adventurous and he suggested trying "pegging". Should I be worried about him being secretly gay? Thanks, Peggy.
There’s a lot of buzz about strap-on play right now.

Here are some tips to help you get started.
