Sex Toys Around the House

Remember when you were a kid and your favorite toy wasn’t the toy but the box it came in? Now that you’re older, think outside of the box and use things around the house for your sexual playtime. Plus, there’s something extra kinky about using something for which it’s not intended.

Bobby Pins: Use the pointy end to lightly draw circles around, but not quite touching, your partner’s nipples. As the circles get closer and closer to the tip of your partner’s nipples, slip them on as an impromptu nipple clamp.

Battery or Electric Toothbrush: An electric or battery-powered toothbrush is a great inexpensive stimulator for the clit, nipples and the tip of the penis. Some of the higher end toothbrushes have a circular of figure-8 motion that can bring a totally new sensation to those very sensitive areas.

Cashmere Sock: Looking for an extra-special gift for your man? Give him a pair of cashmere socks. If he’s not impressed or excited by them, slip a sock on his erect penis, wrap your hand around his shaft, and then gently make a slow twisting motion up and down. The soft texture will feel awesome against his sensitive skin (just don’t go fast, or it’ll feel too rough with the fabric). Once you sense he’s super aroused, pull the sock off and immediately take him in your mouth.

Grapes: Put a frozen grape in your mouth, hold it between your teeth and glide it down your partner’s neck, around his/her nipples, and over his/her lips. Finally, use your tongue to slip the grape into your lover’s mouth. It’s much less messy and uncomfortable than an ice cube, and yummier, too.

Gummy Rings: Slip a gummy ring on your guy’s penis to serve as an edible cock ring to help get him rock hard during oral sex. Nibble or suck it off as you’re going at it.

Kitchen Utensils: Use a pastry brush to tickle your partner. The soft bristles let you gently caress the nipples or the shaft for a tantalizing time. Run the brush under warm or cold water before it touches your mate. For extra sensation, pull out a spatula for a light spanking session.

Makeup Mirror: Put a small easel mirror out to the side, parallel to his body, while you’re going down on him. He’ll get a totally different perspective of what you’re doing to him.

Panty Hose: Panty hose are always a quick go-to item for tying up your lover. They can also be an inventive sex toy you’ll never find in an adult toy store. Tie two or three knots in a nylon stocking, and gently wrap it (don’t tie it) around the base of his penis so it’s snug but still has some give. The compression makes him even more sensitive, and the knots stimulate your clitoris as you move in woman-on-top.

Pearls: A long string of simulated pearls can lead to a long string of orgasms. Run the pearls slowly on or between the inner folds of your labia (nylon rope works well, too) or wrap them around his penis and roll them up and down. Going out for a special evening? Wear them as an accessory and tell your lover what you want him to do with them later. The smaller and weightier the beads, the better.

Sleeping Bag: Get it on outdoors in a sleeping bag in your backyard. The cozy space makes missionary position even more intimate.

Soy Candles: Burn a couple of soy candles to set the mood and to massage your lover. Soy “wax” burns at a low temperature, 110 degrees, and makes for an massage moisturizer (it doesn’t have a waxy feel on the skin when it dries). My favorite soy candles come from Green Daffodil. They’re vegan and made with natural, non-chemical ingredients, including essential oils, so they’re safe on your skin.

Washcloth: Take a thin, inexpensive washcloth, roll it tightly, slip a condom over it, and fill it with hot water. The warmth will give extra stimulation to all those tightly-packed nerve endings just below the tissue.
