Beginner's Guide to Sex Essentials

Sex essentialsEverybody wants to think of themselves as a sexy superhero. That person who can sweep in and ensure the pleasure of all. That person who will go the extra mile to bring pleasure to your bits and pieces and smiles to your face. That person who can leap tall dildos in a single bound! Wait, that might be treading into some serious kink…

Well, one of the ways to become a sexy superhero is to have a great understanding of the aspects of sex that can be applied, pretty much, across the board with everyone you become intimate with. There are a lot of basics that some folks never learn or, even if you try them with one person, you don’t make the connection to try them with someone else. These are The Sex Essentials.

What are the essentials?

To continue our superhero theme, The Sex Essentials are a combination of our sexy superhero’s backstory and their utility belt. In many instances, you can’t use the backstory information without the items in your Essentials toolbelt. This information can include an understanding of lubricants - when to use them and which kind to use in different situations. It can also include the best ways to give a sexy massage, and which massage products to slick your hands up with. Or perhaps you want to last longer during sex or experience new sensations? The Essentials cover just that.

Why do we need sex essentials?

Understanding The Sex Essentials is key to helping yourself and your partner with the subtler nuances of sex. Which batteries to use for sex toys, preferred condoms, which sex toy cleaner is best - grasping and using this knowledge will help you and your partner be more in the moment with your sexytime fun!

Of course, once you learn what to do, then you have to have the right products on hand in your sexy superhero utility belt. Batman’s used to be bright yellow. You can wear one around like that or just have these items close by, perhaps on your nightside table. It is also a great idea to have some on hand in a travel kit for when you venture from home.
