Frolicka: Your One Stop Sexuality Magazine & Sex Toys Shop

Shopping for sex toys on the high street isn’t as easy for everybody. What if you’re out shopping with your kids, or dad, or mother-in-law? What if that sex shop is right by where you work? What if you don’t want to head home, past the curtain-twitching neighbours, with a sex shop branded bag overflowing with anal beads, vibrating butt plugs and rabbit vibrators? Here’s the good news: you don’t have to.

10 Reasons Why I Love Clit Vibrators So Hard

By Cara Sutra: One of the most common questions I get asked about sex toys is, “what is the best vibrator?” While it’s impossible for me to select the perfect vibrator for everyone, as we’re all unique, I can certainly tell you about the sex toys which work for me.

Finding your perfect D/s Partner

There are many ways to connect with others in the BDSM scene. Online, you may visit the several fetish forums and websites that exist, often featuring message boards, details of events and local persons with similar interests. A few examples of these are Fetlife, Informed Consent, Kink.com and Collarspace.

Busting popular myths about ceramic, metal and glass dildos

I’m here to put your fears to bed about some of the more unusual materials sex toys can be made from. It may surprise you to learn that not all vibrators and dildos are made from flexible materials such as jelly, silicone or PVC. Perhaps you’ve never seen any other type of sex toy than the ‘bendy’ sort. In reality, there’s a whole world of alternative materials to get to grips with, each with their own unique appeal and other advantages. There is a wealth of choice when it comes to dildos made from rigid materials (ie. those which don’t bend). Specialist sex toy shops might even sell wooden dildos or perhaps they’ve gone positively primitive with a (body-safe and smooth) stone dildo offering. Unlike a few decades ago, where anything other than jelly sex toys were unheard of, even mainstream sex shops are now selling rigid material sex toys. The most common materials for rigid sex toys are ceramic, metal and glass.

Tips For Beginners To BDSM And Bondage

The enduring popularity of BDSM cannot be attributed in its entirety to the relatively recent appearance of Fifty Shades Of Grey, no matter how much the media would love for that to be the case. Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism are all power exchange activities, either including sex or entirely and deliberately absent of it, which have been practiced for centuries.

BDSM & FemDom Advice: What being a Mistress Really Means

Don't make the mistake that many do: a Mistress is very different to a Dominatrix or a session Domme. Unlike ladies who Dominate or Top for a session, a Mistress owns her property over the long term and the power exchange is not necessarily limited to the dungeon environment.

Learning the ropes – introducing bondage to the bedroom

Bondage in a sexual setting is the act of restraining a person or being restrained for psychological or sexual pleasure. The most recognisable and mainstream item used in a bedroom scenario is the infamous furry handcuffs, now a somewhat derided object in the mainstream, used as a joke on hen and stag weekends to represent kinky and immoral attitudes to sex.

Incompatible Sexual Desires and How to Combat Them

What do you do when your sex drive is stronger than your partner's? How about having sexual fantasies that they have no interest in making reality? What if you're the one who doesn't fancy sex quite as often as before?

Paying for her first lesbian sex experience

The streaming water hit my naked skin hard, hot and cathartic. I stood under the shower and enjoyed having time to focus on the night's plans. I lathered up, letting my hands roam over my breasts, soapy fingers sliding over my nipples. The job was different from usual. A woman this time. I'd fucked plenty of women before of course, but what was unusual was a woman actually paying for me to come do it. My usual clients were men of all ages, income, shape and size. I turned the prospect of a new job, this new client, over in my mind. Did it really matter? No. Fuck, I was actually looking forward to it. My fingers roamed in their cleaning duty, sliding between my legs to where my excitement had gathered along with the streaming lather under the steamy water. The temptation to toss myself off right then and there in the shower was strong but I managed to just about keep a hold of myself. Clients could always tell if you were genuinely turned on, and were more likely to rebook an enthusiastic girl. Might as well use that sex drive for her leisure turned business pursuit. My strong libido was such a great earner. There hadn't been much on the email that came through about the job. Gender, obviously, and I'd quickly replied that no, a woman wasn't a problem, I'd told them I was bisexual when I joined. Age, 26. Younger than me but old enough. Clean bill of sex health. Something I was glad I insisted on being checked before any client call. Address. I'd booked a taxi which was due to pick me up in less than an hour. I'd better quick-step it out of the shower if I wanted to be dried and dressed in time.

Cara Sutra writes for Adult Toys UK: My Top Ten Bondage Essentials

"A mouth gag makes the one playing the role of the submissive owned party feel even more controlled and vulnerable, they also stop much of the noise that the person may emit during a spanking or ‘sexy punishment’ session as well as making the gagged person look even more appealing and corruptible for the one in position of Dominance and control."

Getting His Money’s Worth In The Big Smoke

She’d waxed and tanned and barely dressed, she’d courted darkness’ approach with a stilettoed dash through the twilight between taxi and apartment building, and now she stood facing her work for the evening. Average, she decided. From the postcode and the cut of the suit trousers he was wearing he definitely had the means to back up his demands. But first impression looks-wise? Average.
