My sex toy journey started after I ended a long-term relationship back in 2012. I knew about sex toys from being an avid fan of “Sex and the City”. However, nothing could have prepared me for all of the orgasmic lessons and blessings I was about to receive. My First Sex Toy  I distinctly remember seeing the outdoor Babeland sign and putting more pep into my step as I walked closer and closer to the glass doors. I entered through the wide doorway and was surrounded by rainbow-colored silicone dildos, gleaming silver bullet vibrators, and lava-lamp-shaped butt plugs. I perused…Read More

It usually takes longer time to get wet than to get an erection, so women have a lot to win on a proper foreplay. But also men get a harder, more lasting, and more sensitive erection if they use some time, and the orgasm will also be more powerful. Foreplay should not be looked as a burden you have to do before you get to the good stuff. Foreplay is a part of the good stuff! It helps maintain physical and…Read More

You need a prescription: Plan B is now available to women of any age over-the-counter. Ella is available to…Read More

Ah, the biology of the human body is so extremely fascinating! Where do all these feelings actually come from? Are they real?

In addition to attracting a partner through our scent, some more or less successfully resort to flirting and body language. When you have successfully attracted a partner, your body is wired for lust. And when all you want is to merge with that other person, you are actually…Read More
