Are you ready to sex up your summer?
Summer is on, and we are here for it!
With all that flesh on show, and the rules gone, we’re all feeling a bit saucy. This made us reach out to esmale, online gay sex shop, as they’re a fountain of knowledge when it comes to all things of an adult nature.
We put some questions across to the lovely guys from team esmale and this is what they came back with.
What are some of the essential toys and sex gear that every guy should be equipping themselves with?
My goodness – do you have a day or two?
Apart from the essentials – such as lube and a toy – you need an Anal Douche. Knowing that you’re ‘clean’ will free your mind so you can focus on enjoying the action.
Also, a good quality cock-ring will keep you harder for longer – perfect for those longer sessions.
During lockdown, we’ve seen a surge in the sales of masturbators. Trust me, some of these wanking tools are insane! The high-end ones from Hot Octopuss and Fleshjack will provide with amazingly intense orgasms.
For those that love it, a bottle of poppers can add to the fun. We recommend the Popper Super Shop for that.
The choice of anal toys can be a bit overwhelming. Any tips on how to select the right anal toy?
It can be overwhelming – there are so many anal toys out there.
For example, we have well over 600 different anal toys in our store, so it can be difficult to get the right one.
Firstly, you need to establish what you want from an anal toy.
If you want that full anal feeling and thrusting, we suggest a vibrator or a dildo. For those that want to stimulate the P-spot and intensify their orgasm, we suggest a prostate massager.
We also have a massive range of butt plugs and anal balls that can be worn all day long or used to loosen you up and relax you a bit before having penetrative sex.
We have smaller toys for beginners, and massive ones for the very experienced.
Just make sure you get some good water-based or hybrid lube to go with it. Avoid silicone lube, as that might damage the toy.
Do you think that we’ve pretty much overcome the shame that used to be associated with buying sex-toys and sex-related products, or is that still something that men are grappling with?
From our customer feedback, we have seen a growing acceptance but there are still people that struggle with the idea of self-pleasure.
Without sounding too much like a L’Oreal advert, we are all worth it!
With the new generation of toys, there is so much fun to be had. Take some time out from your phone and Netflix and spend an hour or so on your bed to give your mind and body a good time.
Another topic customers come to us with is how to introduce using toys into a relationship or hook-up. The general concern here is twofold. Firstly, some people find it embarrassing to bring up the topic at all and secondly, they don’t want to upset the other party who might feel that a request for using toys is because what they’re currently providing isn’t adequate.
Communication is always key. Explain that the pleasure of a toy is in addition to what you are already enjoying. We’ve had several emails from customers thanking us for spicing up their bedroom fun.
Having the right lube to hand can really make a sexual encounter something special. Which lube would you recommend?
Good lube equals better sex!
The right lube can make anal sex a lot more comfortable for both the giver and receiver.
For most play, we recommend hybrid lube. This is a water-based lube with some added silicone. It has just enough silicone lube mixed in that it will last for a longer time, but not enough that it damages toys or condoms.
For heavier sex, we have a great selection of desensitising lubes and also great fisting lubes and powders.
A very popular brand is Spunk Lube. This is a hybrid lube that looks like spunk, so it feeds a fantasy whilst also being very good.
What do you hope that guys feel when they’re toys or products they’ve purchased from esmale?
Simple – we want all our customers to feel great!
Whether it’s in one of our sexy briefs, jocks or fetish gear, or after a great session with one of our toys or fetish items. We just want to add fun, function and pleasure to anyone’s sex life.
