Book Review: The Big Book Of Orgasms

14 Jan

big book of orgasms I love erotica but sometimes I don’t want to invest the time it takes to read an entire erotic novel or even a long story. Sometimes I just want a quickie 😉 & The Big Book of Orgasms in the perfect answer. This erotic anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel contains … you guessed it … 69 short erotic stories that run the gamut from sweetly seductive to incredibly kinky. All of the stories have one thing in common, orgasms – big orgasms, small orgasms, quiet ones and loud ones. Orgasms from toys, fingers, spanking, tongues and thoughts. “Orgasm offers endless erotic possibilities – not only in the countless way humans have devised to have orgasms, but also in the types and kinds of orgasms we can have”.*  And that’s what this book is all about!

Ask An Educator: Discreet First Time Toy

25 Sep

 “I am 19 and a virgin. I love to masturbate and am kind of over rubbing my clit. I want to try a sex toy but don’t know what to get. I also need something discreet because I live at home. HELP!”

tickle your fancyNavigating the world of sex toys can be really difficult, especially if you have never owned one before. There are so many types that it can be difficult to know what to get. From your question, it seems as if you are primarily focusing on clitoral stimulation so a toy like the Tango could be great for you. It’s a discreet external vibrator that looks like lipstick. It has several intensities of vibration which is key because, since you have never used a toy before, you don’t know what kind of vibration your body will best respond to. It also has pulsation modes which vary the pattern of vibration which can be helpful if you find that constant vibration or rubbing of the clitoris makes you a bit numb. The best thing about this toy – it is nearly silent and it’s rechargeable so you can use it without everyone knowing it!

Another thing I would suggest is invest in a good lube like Sliquid Oceanics. You mentioned that you feel like you are “over rubbing” your clit and that can certainly happen if you are masturbating without lube. A good lubricant can entirely change the feel of masturbation (either with a hand or with a toy) and prevent any unwanted friction. If you don’t want the labeled bottle lying around, go to the Container Store and pick out a pretty pump bottle and no one will know what’s in it! 😉
