“So what now?" This is the question many couples find themselves asking, and precisely what my girlfriend and I have been wondering as of late. Our sex life had been far from boring, but once in a while, everyone wants to try something a little different. There’s a big world of all sorts of toys and activities out there, and we were eager to try some of them. The only question was where could we start? I can only assume that many of you are in the same position now, and I hope a little of my advice might give you the courage to try out some new things!
Like many others, we found ourselves mildly curious about the world of bondage. With books like "50 Shades of Grey" on all the best sellers' lists, millions of lovers are ready to dive into some new territory. Many people are finding themselves curious about things they have never heard of before. Still, while we were interested, we were not quite ready to go out and buy anything right away. The early stages are for testing the waters. And my advice? Find something around the house! My girlfriend and I grabbed a couple of fun items from the closet, our favorite of which ended up being a regular tie. It seemed a bit silly at first, but once things got going, the experience ended up being extremely enjoyable. If you're curious, give it a try! Tie your lover's hands behind his or her back, or maybe use the fabric as a makeshift gag. A simple household item such as this can be a good way to explore and open the gates to new experiences.
It didn't take us long to grow accustomed to our new bedroom toy. What started as something perhaps a little awkward turned out to be a lot of fun. Before long, we were comfortable and ready to explore even further into this new world. Next stop - a trip to our nearest adult store. Of course, the possibilities in a store are almost endless. You're likely to encounter all sorts of toys that you didn't know existed. Still in the early stages of our exploration, we decided to go with something simple - a pair of handcuffs. We eagerly brought our new toy home to test out, and we were not disappointed! The cuffs were absolutely a step up from the ties - a bit more painful, but this can certainly be enjoyable to some. They're now frequently a part of our activities.
With time, my girlfriend and I are sure to branch out more. We have plenty of items on our wishlist, and we're ready to test out as many new toys as we can. To anyone else in a similar position, my best advice would be to start slow! Decide what you and your partner are comfortable with, and work your way up from there. Many may be afraid that something is too "strange" or "crazy," but you should never be afraid to try something different!
