Strap Up and Strap-On!

This blog was prepared by Lips'n'Licks in her own personal capacity. The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own.

Lately, I've been noticing a lot of interest from customers when it comes to strap ons. And more surprisingly, it's for women who want to use a strap on and a dildo on their male counterparts. Exciting! It's great that couples are more comfortable exploring new avenues of intercourse but I find that customers are a little lost when it comes to the basics of strap on use. But I'm here to help you strap up and strap on!

Comfort Over Cost


"You get what you pay for -" I'm sure we have all have a piece of evidence that shows how true this motto can be. When it comes to your harness, it's no different. You want to make sure your harness lasts, and that you are comfortable in it. Nothing is worse than a harness that chafes between where the hip and femur bone meet. Look for a harness that has smaller, more triangular pubic area, and be sure that the harness sits right atop the pubic bone, like the King Cock Fit-Rite Harness. Also, as sexual beings, we come in different shapes and sizes, and harness manufacturers have finally taken notice by making plus size harnesses. Now everyone can strap up! So when shopping for that harness, think about your comfort and the items longevity because you'll definitely get what you pay for.

Strap On Add Ons

Now that you have the perfect harness, it's time to find the perfect dildo! At this stage, it's best to shop with your partner since the dildo will be used for them. By shopping together you'll be able to collect accurate information on your partners likes and dislikes as well as what they are will to handle during sex with a strap on. For beginners, I'd recommend starting with a dildo of 4-6 inches, like the Dillio Anal Teaser. If you're a bit more experienced, any one for the King Cock dildos would provide a great experience. Be sure that the dildo you're interested in is harness compatible by assuring that the dildo has a flared base or suction base. The base, as well as "O" rings that come in small, medium or large which you would use depending on the shaft of the dildo, keep the dildo in place during place.



Be Prepared and Start Slow


If you are using a harness for the first time with your male partner, the best advice I can give is to start slow. Even if it isn't your partners first time riding the rodeo, it may be your first time controlling the harness. Go at your own pace while building your comfort level. And , of course, lube up with a suitable, thick anal lube and never forget the toy cleaner for when the deed is done. Have fun!

3 Tips To Get You In The Mood

This blog was prepared by Lips'n'Licks in her own personal capacity. The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own.

So, you're not in the mood for sex? You've just gotten home from a long day at work; settled for a peanut butter sandwich because real dinner would have taken too much time to cook, and are pooped out on the couch while the news is watching you. Your partner comes home, possibly a little stressed or in a great mood; either way they're in the mood for sex. How do you get in the mood?

Sensual Touch/Massage


There is nothing more that turns me on than skin to skin contact - the warmth and intimacy is unmatched. Give your partner a massage; start at their shoulders and let your hands travel down to the nape of their back. Use a sweet smelling oil or a simple silicone based lube to keep things slick. Steamy make-out sessions, hand jobs and oral sex are also avenues of sensual touch that are capable of bringing your partner to climax. The intimate gesture of a massage relaxes both parties which opens the door for deeper sensual play, if you allow yourself to go there. Enjoy the act of giving and you will most definitely receive.

Couples Masturbating


Maybe you're in the mood but not in the mood to do it with your partner; try couples masturbation. Pleasuring yourself in front of your partner creates the air of intimacy with the added bonus of pleasure just the way you want it. Through masturbation, you and your partner are turning each other on while educating each other on how you both like to be pleased for use in the future. Turn the lights low while you and your partner find bliss in self pleasure. With this exercise there is a very high chance of it ending in sex. Breathe in that intimate air and go with the flow. Who knows where the night will end.

Quickies


Your partner is burning with sexual energy but your flame is a small flicker. A quickie is a great way to cool your partner down and heat you up. Whether played out on the bed, the floor, the couch or even the kitchen counter, the excitement of it all is sure to get you in the mood. Let your partner lead while you follow since this is more for them than it is for you but have fun and enjoy the ride. The quickie will leave your partner satisfied which should, in turn, satisfy you.

Try these tips to get you in the mood the next time you're out of it, and let us know which one works best. Happy Explorations!

The Power of the Palm

This blog was prepared by Lips'n'Licks in her own personal capacity. The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own.


When the PalmPower stepped on the scene there were some reservations due to the fact that the toy is a plug and play as well as the one button control. Sure, these details may sound like a few steps back in comparison to the direction adult novelty toys are headed - despite the reservations, the PalmPower was tested by some very big names in the industry. Click the links to find rave reviews for the PalmPower Original by Emmeline Peaches and The Redhead Bedhead.


What most of the reviews I've read had in common was the love for the range and unrelenting power the PalmPower offers. With the easy to use single button control the user is able to choose the vibration power level from a low rumble to a high - but not annoying - buzz. All you have to do is press and hold the button and, when you reach your desired intensity, leg go and bask in the good vibrations.

What they also loved was the unlimited power and time for play. Because the PalmPower is a plug and play you don’t have to worry about battery life. When the PalmPower is plugged into an outlet the vibrations are literally endless. No worries about wasting battery life or thinking about when it will be time to recharge mid-session. It's all about the intense vibes and, most importantly, you!

With the PalmPowers signature fuscia head you can receive a mind-blowing clitoral orgasm just by gently massaging your vulva in an up and down, side to side or circular motion to the desired vibe intensity. The PalmPower can also be used to massage the perineum, the testicles and even the tip of the penis – just be mindful of how intense the vibes are. And, of course, it can be used for simple massage of the back, hands, nape of the neck and even major muscles such as calves and hamstrings.


Did you know that the head is interchangeable? That's right, with PalmPower Head Attachments (sold separately) you are able to easily twist off the PalmCap and, by adding one of the many attachments, turn your personal massager into an internal massager. The PalmPower just oozes pleasure and versatility!!

Celebrate Pride 2017

This blog was prepared by Lips'n'Licks in her own personal capacity. The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own.

With the second annual Pride Month reaching it's peak, there are a plethora of Pride related parties, talks and events to keep you entertained and keep your energy up for the big parade this coming Sunday June, 25th. If you're looking for some awesome things to do before the big parade, continue reading to get the inside scoop!

Sweat: Yes, Yes Y'all Block Party
In it's ninth year, after being created to be a place to come in your colours and be free of judgement, Yes, Yes Y'all has dug it's roots into the community to give you a bash of a party on Pride parade Friday (June 23rd, 2017). From 6pm-2am at the OLG Central Stage you could be vibing to all the best hip-hop, R&B, soca and dancehall. There will also be live performances from dance groups like House of Monroe and a great selection of DJ's keeping the night young. And if you thought that was it, the well-known musical duo Nina Sky who gave us hits like Turnin' Me On and Move Ya Body will be headlining. They'll be onstage from 12:30am onward keeping the party popping. If you're interested, they do have parking in between the O'Grady's and Crews and Tangos on Church Street but I would advise taking the subway. And the best part about SWEAT – it's free!


Friday Night Live: Colour ROM Proud (#FNLROM)
Decorate the ROM in every colour of Pride this Friday night!! Celebrating its eleventh year, the ROM is hosting its official Pride dance party from 7pm-11pm. You can purchase tickets on the ROM website at www.ROM.on.ca/fnl or at the doors. Adults: $17, students: $15.50, ROM members $5. Now, I must say, this party is a bit too short for me so I would colour the ROM then head over to SWEAT (see above) to cap off my night.


Drag Ball
Let the race begin at Yonge-Dundas Square this Saturday. The Drag Ball will be held from 2pm-11pm in the middle of the downtown core with the likes of Kitty Glitter and MikeQ from Qween Beat. The show will start with a DJ set that will have you werking, thanks to Kitty Glitter. Afterwards MikeQ will be taking the stage to give us a taste of New York City's Ball Culture. There is also a set for Toronto's own to show us what they're working with. And, it's a drag ball, so come dressed to the nines and ready to give everyone your best "YAS QUEEEN!"


Family Pride
If you're looking to keep your Pride family friendly. Head down to Church Street Public School between 10am-5pm on Saturday or Sunday to join in family festivities such as sports, games, crafts, face painting and performances. The event is geared towards children from the age of 0-12 years but is inclusive for the entire family. This is a great opportunity to educate youth about the Toronto's LGBTQ+ culture and provide them with a space to show their colours.

No matter how you choose to celebrate Pride, be sure to have a loads of fun and be safe. Happy Pride!

We-Vibe Is In Full Bloom!


This blog was prepared by Lips'n'Licks in her own personal capacity. The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own.




Honestly, with this years new crop of luxury toys, We-Vibe is pulling out all the stops! Just when I thought their new pleasure rings and butt plugs were something that couldn’t be topped, the Canadian company, who paved the way for couples vibrators, decided to add a top of the line kegel exerciser that has my heart beating and juices flowing!


The Bloom by We-Vibe is a new and innovative spin on a staple item in the sex toy industry. The Kegel exerciser was created to, what some believe, help strengthen the PC muscles located within the group of pelvic floor muscles that support the reproductive organs. Pubococcygeus muscles (pronounced PEW-bow-kok-SEE-gee-us) are the small group of muscles that contract during orgasm; they aid in stopping embarrassing leaks in older women and enhance orgasms for all women. For more experienced Kegel exerciser users, the weight of the toy can be upped for a more intense vaginal workout. The Bloom has made changing your weights effortless with the easy to use twist off/on weight replacements that come in three progressive weights (10g, 30g, 45g.) The toy will be able to grow with you as you grow in the toning and strengthening of your PC muscles.


Not only does the Bloom come with progressive weight add-ons but it also has the ability to vibrate. With the rumbly vibes and 10+ functions that this toy offers, your workout may consist of some pain but, most importantly, a great amount of pleasure. The Bloom can also be connected to the inventive We-Connect App that can easily be downloaded and used on any hand-held device. Like the Bloom by We-Vibe's counterparts, it offers a comfortable design, it's fully waterproof, it's rechargeable and comes equipped with a low power alert so you know when it's the right time to charge up.


It's almost summer so I know you're in the gym getting that summer body on point, but don't forget about the muscles you can't see – that's right, your PC muscles. To get the pelvic floor muscle workout you need to get your body summer and orgasm ready, CLICK HERE to pre-order your Bloom by We-Vibe TODAY!!
