Water or Silicone? Try Both!

This is the most common of lubricants due to it's universality; warming, cooling, tingling, flavoured, scented, light and silky lubes all start with a simple water based lubricant formula. The prominent ingredient in water based lube (other than water), glycerin, is what gives the lube its familiar and slick feel. It is a naturally viscous and sweet material deriving from plants such as soybean and palm. The addition or subtraction of the presence of glycerin in a water based formula can dictate the thickness or slickness of the lube depending on what the user prefers. Not only is water based lubricant versatile in the varieties it comes in but it is versatile in the way it is compatible with all toy materials. Whether your toy has a silicon coating or made of rubber, a water based lubricant will not react negatively to any material. A couple things to remember with water based lubricants: our skin absorbs water at a fast rate so be sure to put aside some time during intercourse to reapply; and because glycerin is naturally sweet this may cause irritation to sensitive skin so before using your lubricant test the formula on the inside of your arm to be sure that lubricant is safe to use on your skin. All in all, water based lubricant is an inexpensive and versatile way to indulge in sensual play.

Although more expensive than water based lubricants, silicone lubricants have a lot more function. The silicone found in lubricants is made from a very refined sand giving the formula a silky, more satiny feel. And because there is no water in the formula, when used on skin, it takes longer to soak in keeping you worry free about the chore of reapplication. That's why it is also great for double use as a massage oil. Silicone is also hypoallergenic due to the material and the use of less ingredients. So there are no worries when it comes to your sensitive skin. However, silicone lubricant cannot be used with a silicone toy. The refined silicone in the lubricant will break down the material of the toy leaving you unappeased and toy-less. Silicone lubricant can also be infamous for staining the sheets so remember to use only as much as you need at any given time. I find silicone lubricant better in the area of function over bells and whistles of flavoured or warming lubes. If you're looking for tried and true, silicone lubricant is the way to go.

If you decide which option works best for you, try a hybrid lubricant. Although it is mostly a water based lubricant the small amount of silicone added to the formula really makes a difference in regards to function. Also, hybrid lubricants can be used with all toy materials so you won't have to worry about purchasing two separate lubes. It's a two for one! Comment below and let me know which formula works best for you. Happy Explorations!!

USB! (Unlimited Sexual Bliss)

Say goodbye to batteries; the annoyance of remembering to buy them, and the consequence of paused pleasure when you forget. Wave adiós to "unique" charging contraptions that, if you break them, cost a breast and a clit to replace. Now say bienvenue to USB powered pleasure!

USB - in my world - stands for Unlimited Sexual Bliss. It is the new and universal way of play that has made it's way into the industry and seems as if it's here to stay. We first saw USB rechargeable vibrators and now your vibrator is the USB! Like your phone, your USB powered toy can be plugged right into your computer or a wall adapter. And because the toy is supplied by a power source with no limitations the vibrations are extremely strong, and you won't have to worry about the amount of time you spend at play because your toy has the capability to go all night long. Not only will the strong vibrations last all night but with the remote control - like the ones attached to your headphones - you'll be able to set the mood by flipping through up to ten arousing vibrating functions.

You're probably picturing a USB chord and shaking your head at the length, saying to yourself: "How is anyone supposed to be pleasured all night long attached to a two foot chord?" No worries, because with NMC's new line of USB powered vibrators, they've thought of everything. Each toy in the line is equipped with a chord more than three times the length of your phone charging chord. The chord is so long it'll feel like it's not even there. Plus, when you're in the throws of individualized passion or involved in a hot video call with your lover overseas, how far will you really be going? But, for some reason, if you do decide to get up and move to the other side of the room midway through your pleasure NMC offers an 18" extension chord to plug in to stretch your Unlimited Sexual Bliss.

Theory of Cunnilinguism

Cunnilingus, for some reason, is a foreign concept to many men (and women) so I've decided to do this in two parts. Today, we're focusing on the theory, and next week we will focus on the practice of cunnilingus – that's right, we're going back to school with this one. Below is what you should know BEFORE your tongue starts it's happy dance. Let's begin.

Clitoris is King

What penis is to man, clitoris is to women; the precipice of pleasure. Imagine achieving orgasm without stimulation to your penis... I rest my case. To the naked eye the clitoris may seem timid and meek covered by it's protective hood but that is just the tip of the iceberg. To the woman's body the clitoris is a complex network of over eight thousand nerve endings that connect the clitoral shaft, labia (minora and majora), the vaginal opening, the g-spot etc. to take your lady to orgasmic heights - with the right amount of TLC.

Educate Yourself

Gentlemen, pick up a book. A woman's nether regions are complex and not just a whole to be entered. The vagina is only one part of the provocative vulva – the other parts are in need of your time and effort. If you were able to identify with the parts of the vulva listed above, you're on the right track, but if you weren't, here are some great books to pick up in your free time to get you started. Oral Sex She'll Never Forget by Sonia Borg; Clitology Book by Jordan LaRousse and Samantha Sade; and written from a sole mans point of view, She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide To Pleasuring A Woman by Ian Kerner.

Appreciate the smell and taste

For most men the smell and taste of a woman are the number one reason why they do not want to perform cunnilingus on their partner. Suck it up! Literally. With time a woman's vagina acclimates to her partner which lends to her overall musk. When it comes to your lady's smell and taste, you have a hand in it – so stick your face in it. If you're dealing with multiple partners and the aroma hinders you, simply take a shower together. She'll love it because it adds to the foreplay and you'll love it because you can start with a clean slate.

Ladies come first

Basic chivalry every man should know: ladies come first. I understand that in the heat of the moment when everything is going right you just want to stick it in, bang it out and take a nap. Here's an idea, try going against that natural urge and tend to the urges of you lady. Nine times out of ten women won't orgasm from vaginal penetration alone. Use the tension that's building up in you and transfer it into some tender love and clitoral stimulation for your lady.

Practice makes perfect

It takes ten thousand hours of your time to become an expert at anything. No better time to start than right now. Stay tuned for the Practice of Cunnilinguism. In the meantime - Happy Explorations!
