Festive Fiction: The Best Christmas Gift Of All

By Mel MacFarlane:
I knelt on the floor giggling and listened intently to the soft rustle of paper as he moved swiftly around the room. His normally heavy footsteps surprisingly light as he navigated his way around me, hoping that I wouldn’t hear. Over my eyes the blindfold pressed firmly against my skin, allowing only a small chink of light to highlight his large black boots.

How To Gift Lingerie She Loves For Christmas

By Mel MacFarlane:
As a woman, I love opening expensive new lingerie on Christmas morning (hint, hint). I love the thought of my other half lovingly choosing the delicate fabrics, admiring the cut of the soft lace and his face as he dreams of me wearing it. I picture him assertively flicking through the hangers, and the final eureka moment when he spies the perfect garment to emphasise my long legs, disguise my saggy tummy and deliver a cleavage to die for.

Sex Games to Spice Up Your Sex Life

By Mel MacFarlane
One of the reasons that I am a huge advocate of sex games, is that games such as Fifty Days of Play take away the predictability of foreplay and add something a little different into the mix. For those who are still a little shy in the bedroom, sex games offer a really good solution in terms of spicing things up without having to be too forthcoming.

Jimmyjane Hello Touch Couples Vibrator Pleasure Panel Review

Price:
£77.00
Brand:
Jimmyjane
Shop:
MEO
Materials: Silicone

By Mel MacFarlane, Voluptasse
During use, the Jimmyjane Hello Touch Couples Vibrator emits a powerful vibration but this is whisper-quiet so I found it to be very discreet. With a small amount of water-based lubricant on each finger pad, the powerful vibration gets to work immediately and produces some great results. Because I was using my fingers, this enabled me to pleasure myself at my own pace, using the same strokes and techniques I’ve always enjoyed, but with a buzzy little twist. The results were intense!

For couples in a BDSM relationship, Valentine’s Day is a great reason to lock the door, dig out your collection of kinky treats and find subspace together.

Merry Kinkmas! A Sexy Christmas Story from Voluptasse

‘He came back with a scarf which was taken from a snowman in the garden and some large sprigs of holly. Lee wrapped the scarf around my head and took some miniature pegs from the Christmas card holder around the fire. He fastened two pegs to my nipples and told me to bend over and hold my ankles.‘
The officer shifted in his seat and moved closer into the table. Does he have an erection? wondered Kerry, stifling a giggle. The officer silenced her with a glare and gestured for her to continue.

£22.00

By Mel MacFarlane, Voluptasse
As you know by now, I am a great fan of clitoral stimulation and have a well documented struggle to find a product which can ‘get me off’ without pressing the magic button. Therefore, when Cara Sutra sent me the Sh Curved G Spot Vibrator for her Pleasure Panel reviews, I knew that I needed to keep an open mind when reviewing this product.

Strap On Sex Tips: How A Woman Can Get Pleasure From Pegging

For those who haven’t heard of it before, pegging involves a heterosexual (or bisexual) man being anally penetrated by a female wearing a strap on dildo. Described as one of the most fulfilling and intimate experiences that a couple can engage in, pegging and harness play is a practice which continues to go from strength to strength. During pegging, the focus often centers on the pleasure of the male recipient. However, in this article I’d like to focus on female pleasure too.

Brand:
Minx

By Mel Macfarlane, Voluptasse
Over the years, I have built up a considerable collection of vibrating eggs but so far none have quite managed to ‘hit the spot’, probably because I prefer clitoral stimulation to G Spot titillation. Nevertheless, when Cara Sutra asked me to review the Minx Aqua Silks Vibrating Egg for the Pleasure Panel, I agreed in the hope that this would be the product that finally rocks my G Spot.

Fifty Shades of Grey Something Forbidden Butt Plug – Pleasure Panel Review

Price:
£11.99
Materials: Silicone

By Voluptasse
The butt plug itself comes in a black Fifty Shades of Grey box, which had some text on the side from the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by EL James. Once opened, the butt plug was encased within a plastic sleeve and looked okay. The size and shape were very non-threatening and perfect for a beginner like me. Within the box, there were a full set of instructions which came in various languages and a lovely satin storage pouch.
