Your Sex Kit
It should look nice in your bedroom and also entice you enough to want to open it – forget ratty old shoeboxes and opt for a pretty gift box or wooden chest instead.

Take away sight, and you’re left with your other four senses to experience pleasure with.

It makes intercourse more pleasurable for both of you. Also, whip it out when you want to give him a handjob he will never forget.

For a provocative striptease, think lacy G- strings and bras, crotchless panties, and silky slips and teddies. If you want to give your hubby a real visual treat, you can’t go wrong with a garter belt and lace-top stockings.

From pulsating penis rings to standard vibrators – switch them around to suit your mood in the bedroom.

Massage oil or lotion
Give each other a sexy massage as foreplay. Oil or lotion warms the skin and heightens the sensations that come with each sensuous stroke.

Nipple pasties
Add showgirl style to your bedroom games. Choose a fancy shape, like a heart or flower – or tasselled pasties – for extra fun.

Scarves or handcuffs
Bring out the restraints for a little light bondage or role-playing.
