Ok, so I seriously hesitated before hitting publish on this post. Sex is just something you are programmed to not talk about, isn’t it? But it was the fact that the subject is still considered taboo, even in today’s forward thinking society that pushed me to come out of my comfort zone and write about a topic which is actually quite close to my heart.
Before I go any further, mum, Nan, anybody else related to me who might be reading this, you may want to give this post a miss. It’s one thing being open and candid about your sex life to friends and followers, but quite another to bare all to your nearest and dearest…
Having had three children, and experienced the highs and lows that come with motherhood, as well as my body taking a bit of a battering throughout three pregnancies and births, my libido, unsurprisingly, has taken a bit of a hit and I don’t necessarily feel as sexy or want to be intimate as much as I did pre-kids.
Although there is nothing ‘wrong’ with feeling this way, I am a firm believer that sex is important in a relationship, and I personally would like my sex drive to return to what it once was, not just for Ed’s benefit but for my own as well. For this reason, I am open to experimenting with things that might reignite that spark in the bedroom, and I have teamed up with Lovehoney for this post to share with you one of their vibrator gift sets, suitable for couples.
Lovehoney is a website dedicated to sexual happiness, supplying an extensive and varied range of sex toys, accessories and lingerie delivered to your door in discreet packaging. Their gift set range includes something for everyone, with products from blindfolds and handcuffs to more advanced bondage kits. They have sets to suit every budget, and products suitable for both men and women.
Ed and I looked through the selection and opted for the Deluxe Magic Wand Couple’s Gift Bundle, as it sounded like the perfect set for us. With a young family, our time as a couple can be limited. The deluxe wand provides intimate fun whilst also doubling up as the perfect tool for a body massage.
It’s smooth and sleek design is unoffending and easy to get to grips with, and has several different speeds and functions to experiment with.
The additional attachments for both men and women are brilliant and add to the multi-purpose nature of the wand. The set also comes with a lockable case, which is perfect for keeping things safe from prying eyes.
Again, totally taboo, but let’s not beat about the bush – female orgasm is important too, and this wand will help bring you to the edge if you struggle to reach climax during intercourse. It’s a versatile toy and can be used individually or together as a couple.
The different attachments allow for another level of foreplay, and are made of soft silicone and TPE, which can be easily cleaned after use. The wand is also mains-powered, which is fantastic if you’re forever running out of batteries!
Although not a ‘magic’ cure for my diminished libido, the Deluxe Magic Wand Couple’s Gift Bundle from Lovehoney has been a welcome addition to our bedroom, and I would recommend it to others wishing to try something a little different. It is fantastic when used as a totally innocent massager as well, so totally a dual purpose item. I think it’s brilliant value when bought together as a set, priced at £100 (the wand itself is usually £79.99), with free delivery in the UK.
I was provided the items featured for the purpose of this post, however all opinions and images are my own.
