Highlighting a brand of toy, lingerie or other product that we love!

Love in Support of LGBT Foundation

Everyone deserves the right to explore and celebrate their sexuality. Whoever you are and whoever you love, your pleasure, happiness and confidence in doing so is always our priority.

Last year, we launched a Pride Rainbow Rabbit Vibrator in support of LGBT Foundation. Raising nearly £1000 for the charity, we’ve decided to do it again this year. Except this time, we’re going bigger and better!

The rabbit vibe has stepped aside in way of our new Pride Rainbow’s End Dildo. Alongside this exclusive toy, we’ve also launched our Pride Shop. By purchasing ANY item within this collection, 10 per cent of the sale price will be donated to LGBT Foundation.

Combining climaxes with charity? Sounds pretty good to us!

Spotlight: The Ultimate Asslock

For a significantly more advanced experience of anal play, this metal flower will take no prisoners.

AssLock

The concept of this Asslock combines Anal Play with Bondage or BDSM. The tulip shaped plug is smooth and tapered like any classic butt plug, with a flared based for safety and a smooth bulb for pleasure. Once inserted, this accessory transforms in a rather more unique toy. By turning the base the three segments of the main bulb will slowly push outward, expanding the size and locking into place.

AssLock1

In many ways The Ultimate Asslock is an inflatable anal toy made from metal. The petals will push against you, expanding the circumference of the toy and enhancing that delicious full feeling that anal play provides.

There is a reason they call it the Asslock. Once the plug is in place and fully bloomed, it can be locked into place with a lock and key for a firm and unyielding fit.

Not only does this give way for some kinky submission and punishment BDSM scenes, but it also introduces an element of erotic key holder play.

Curious? Take a closer look here.

BDSM Aftercare


Aftercare

The media loves to dramatise and show BDSM relationships as latex clad supermodels brandishing whips marching around in six-inch heels tying each other up to hanging trapezes, but as with porn, it’s only half the story.

BDSM is not about 50 shades of abuse; it involves consent and care and one of the most important parts of this side of a healthy relationship is aftercare. It is the essential part of any BDSM relationship, which TV and film unfortunately ignore.

Aftercare is a form of communication, whether it is physical or emotional, which helps to keep everyone involved safe and happy. Any forms of BDSM can be emotionally and physically draining – excuse the pun. It is something that is not only sexual but also psychological, which means people may need time to recover from activities and this is where aftercare comes in.

Emotional Aftercare

Emotionally BDSM can leave people feeling a mix of emotions and so there is no single form of emotional care. It may involve calming someone and talking through experiences, examining what has gone on. It’s important to make sure all parties feel comfortable and satisfied. Also it’s a great way of finding out what worked best and can be used to improve BDSM activities in the future, so don’t miss an opportunity to talk seriously.

The emotional bond between a couple or group can be strengthened by aftercare, some find this a time for expressing appreciation for one another and talking intimately, making each other feel loved.

Other people might prefer to be left to themselves or even take a nap and this is why communication is essential throughout BDSM practice and relationships, you need to learn what each other likes.

Physical Aftercare

Aftercare is not only emotional it is also physical. Depending on your kink, this may come as first aid, tending to any injuries. Lotions and gels for example can be used to relieve some pain and help protect the skin after activities such as whipping and caning.

Physical practices involve simple things like massages, cuddling and kissing or more practical changes such as taking a bath or changing clothes, different things will help people recover after an activity, so it’s worth finding out what’s best for you.

Aftercare Myth

There is one big myth, which surrounds BDSM aftercare and that is that in a Dom(me)/Sub relationship the submissive person is the one who needs aftercare because it is likely they will be on the receiving end of any activity.

This is actually not true and completely depends on those involved and how they are affected by the scenarios/activities and how much experience they have. So make sure you don’t just assume someone doesn’t need support.

Aftercare Supplies

 tumblr_mu5x1ijcPK1r44ango1_400

It’s a good idea to collect an assortment of things that will help you with your aftercare. This entirely depends on how you feel afterwards, but items such as:

  • Clean clothes
  • Massage Oil
  • Snacks
  • Skin lotion/gel
  • Blankets
  • Bubble bath
  • Painkillers
  • Toy Cleaners
  • Movies

The main thing about aftercare is to know that it is an important part of BDSM and even if you feel happy in your relationship and practices, it is essential to make sure other people do as well.

Stay safe and happy.

Cock Rings… What do they even do?

Cock rings are one of the easiest sex toys to introduce into the bedroom and one of the most effective in improving your performance. However, many people out there are still wondering what the big deal is. Hopefully this article will answer some of those frequently asked questions.

One of the main things about cock rings that make them such as good sex toy is that they are really easy to use. All you have to do is slip them onto the base of your penis before sex and you are ready to go. The way they work is that the ring holds the base of the penis firmly but not too tight and constricts the blood flow into the penis. Now this may sound like it will stop you from getting hard, but what is actually does is slow down the blood flow to help your erections last a lot longer, your length and girth to increase and your orgasms will be better than ever. Sounding good so far? Due to the cock ring keeping your stamina up, you can keep going for a lot longer, meaning your orgasm will build up slower and stronger making it much more powerful.

These many enhancements to your manhood are also benefits for your partner. If you are lasting longer and feeling more confident in yourself, then the results of that will show in your sex life. For women in particular it can take time to reach orgasm, therefore a cock ring is ideal for maintaining the stamina required to please your lady. Women often comment on how the girth of a penis makes a dramatic difference to how quickly they become aroused. With a woman’s sensitive nerve endings mostly at the entrance of the vagina, a thicker cock will stimulate those spots much more effectively. Another win for cock rings!

One thing that people can find baffling when shopping for these amazing toys is the variety of cock rings that are available. The more common variations include silicone, jelly, vibrating, metal, glass, textured and even rabbit cock rings. To make choosing your cock ring easier, these variations can be roughly put into two groups – adjustable and non-adjustable. Adjustable cock rings are what we would recommend anyone starting out with cock rings should use. Adjustable rings can consist of a loop of soft rope or leather that is tightened with a ball or snap fastening, or rings that are made with a stretchy material such as jelly and silicone that will stretch to fit most sizes.

Non-adjustable cock rings are often made of metal, steel, firm rubber or even glass. When choosing a firm cock ring you have to be sure that you use the correct size for you, these rings are popular because they are tight and therefore very effective but if you are using a cock ring that is too small for you then you run the risk of cutting off all blood to the penis and may also experience some difficulty removing the ring after use. But with the right size you will be amazed at the effects it can have on your manhood and on the quality of your sex life.

There is also a huge range of cock rings that feature added elements to provide more stimulation for your partner. Vibrating rings, rabbit cock rings and textured rings can be very popular with the ladies because they add some clitoral stimulation that never fails to please. The textures or vibrations from the ring will stimulate and tease her clit with every thrust and you can do it all hands free!

Vibrating cock rings can vary in both quality and price. Some vibes are made for one or two uses only and are therefore very affordable and ideal for trying a cock ring vibe out for the first time, however for those who love using these toys, there are more costly but higher quality rechargeable rings that can be reused over and over. So if you find the vibrating rings are your thing, then it would be well worth it to invest in a slightly more expensive and durable cock ring.

If this has aroused your cock ring curiosity or if you are looking for another ring to add to your toy box, then our newest competition! This week Bondara is giving away a fantastic Bullet Lastic Ring, a wonderful stretchy vibrating cock ring. To enter just use the rafflecopter entry form below before the 18th June!
