• Sexy Gift Ideas That Won't Backfire

    Supersex and EDGE collections

    Buying your partner a sexy Christmas present isn’t as simple as it sounds - especially if you’ve only been together a little while.

    How do you know if they’ll find the toy you’ve chosen wildly exciting or freaky and a little too out there? Will they be offended? (Is this a hint that I should last longer? Be bigger? Feel tighter?) Or think they’re boring in bed and you’ve bought something to spice things up?

    Happily, there is a way to navigate all these hot spots and guarantee you’ll be doing more than watching Elf and Bad Santa once the relatives have finally buggered off!

    Your partner is super-straight and you’ve been together less than three months:

    For her: Supersex Massage Oil

    Absolutely no one’s offended at the prospect of a nice, sensual massage, so this one’s 100% safe but with an acceptably saucy hint of naughtiness.

    For him: Supersex Sensation Stroker Clear

    This isn’t one for him to open in front of Aunt Martha but if he’s never owned a male masturbator - which is what a stroker is - he will think this is the best present he has ever had in his life! He can use it solo to begin with then you can use it on him during foreplay: simply slide it over an erect penis and move it up and down. Add some Supersex Love Lube so he can use it that night (you must use water-based lube inside the stroker).

    For both of you: Hot Sex Deck

    If your partner is super-super-straight, a good way around it is to buy a present for the both of you with a card that says ‘For us!’. The Hot Sex Deck is perfect. It’s a set of position cards that’s divided into 10 different categories that suit any and all sex scenarios - and while the couple illustrated are naked, the photos aren’t too explicit.

    You’re having great sex but haven’t tried any sex toys together yet:

    For him: Supersex USB Rechargeable Love Ring

    A love ring that he wears around the base of his penis during intercourse is a good starter sex toy for couples. The note should read, “I thought this would be fun for us to try” so he doesn’t instantly lapse into ‘God! Does this mean she doesn’t have an orgasm during intercourse?” If you don’t - and 80% of women need clitoral stimulation along with penetration to achieve one - it’s a gentle way to start a conversation about it. All you need to do is say, “I love having you inside me and I love my vibrator so I thought we couldn’t really go wrong with this one!” The ring has a little vibe attached to it, that you position against the clitoris. Get him to use a grinding motion to maintain contact throughout. The Supersex USB Rechargeable Love Ring is the perfect choice.

    For her: Supersex 7 Function USB Rechargeable Bullet or Supersex USB Rechargeable Rabbit

    Sneak a peek into her bedside drawers and see what you find in there. Chances are she’ll have one of two styles of vibrators: a bullet vibe (tampon size or slightly bigger) or a rabbit (quite large with little ‘ears’ that tease the clitoris. Does it look like she needs a brand new version of either? The Supersex 7 Function USB Rechargeable Bullet is powerful, portable and affordable. The Supersex USB Rechargeable Rabbitis also hugely popular and a firm favourite for lots of women, even if lots just use the ‘ears’ rather than insert the length.

    For both: Supersex Bondage Tape

    This tape twinpack comes in hot pink and black and is an inexpensive, fun way to drop a hint that you’re up for some tie-up games. The Supersex Soft Bondage Kit is another fab idea.

    You’ve been together over a year and just exited the lusty ‘honeymoon’ stage:

    For her: Supersex Clitoral Vibe

    The Supersex Clitoral Vibe is a great idea for this stage. It’s slightly unusual and perfect for introducing variety just when you need it most but also acknowledging the shift into a more sensual, less frantic type of sex.

    For him: Supersex Supertight Clear Stroker and Edge Maximum Control Adjustable Stamina Ring

    If he hasn’t already got one, team a Supersex Supertight Clear Stroker with the Edge Maximum Control Adjustable Stamina Ring. One turns the humble hand-job into something almost unbearably good; the other shows off his already impressive erection (put it like this in the card!) and makes him last even longer (get the idea?).

    For both: Supersex Glass Dildo Set

    The Supersex Glass Dildo Set is also ideal for this stage of the relationship. You can use them to massage all over the body but also to venture into anal play and temperature play. They’re gorgeous to look at as well!

    You’ve been together more than two years and are in a sexual rut:

    For her: Supersex Rechargeable G-Spot Vibrator

    Most couples settle into a routine around two years which revolves around sure-thing scenarios like oral orgasms for her and intercourse orgasms for him. Time to explore her front vaginal wall - one big ‘G-spot’ - with a Supersex Rechargeable G-Spot Vibrator. Write “Because I think you’re the sexiest woman alive” on the note.

    For him: Supersex Vibrating Butt Plug

    Have you tried anal play? Does he lift his bottom rather hopefully towards your hand or tongue when it drifts in that direction? Have you gone as far as inserting fingers but then sort of stopped? An anal toy is riskier than others because some people are NEVER going there, no matter what, but anal play has leaped from ‘kinky’ to ‘normal even if I’m not particularly into it’ for most couples. The Supersex Vibrating Butt Plug works to stimulate the male G-spot - the prostate gland. Believe me, if he’s got one of these inserted and you're giving him oral sex simultaneously, you’ll be out of that rut instantly! If he unwraps it and looks horrified, all is not lost. You can return it for a full refund or use it any way you would a vibrator - on the clitoris, nipples and anywhere else that takes your fancy.

    For both: Supersex Remote Control Vibrating Love Egg

    Bring back the tease with a Supersex Remote Control Vibrating Love Egg. Insert it high into the vagina, hand over the controls and that long, dreary lunch with the in-laws is looking one hell of a lot more interesting!

    You’re happy, sexed-up and just looking for something fun:

    Any of the following are all fab gift ideas if neither of you are likely to be offended and both up for a bit of adventure! Supersex Anal Beads, Supersex Beginner’s Butt Plug, Silicone Beaded Anal Prober, Supersex Pleasure Wand Vibrator or Supersex Power Vibe.

    Stocking stuffers: Pocket Kama Sutra, Supersex Love Lube or Orgasm Gel, Supersex Silicone Love Ring or Edge Vibrating Stamina Ring.
