Want something more intimate and satisfying under the tree this season?
Pick through RESCU’s top sexy Christmas gifts for the bedroom – and be sure to leave them on your list, or buy them for somebody you know loves pleasure.
Just don’t make any ‘naughty or nice’ jokes…
For revitalising an old classic – the G-spot vibrator
Sometimes a woman just wants something more than the norm.
The beautiful Thumbs Up G-spot vibe, although it does come in a slightly off-putting shade of pink, has rave reviews, and is infinitely open to experimentation (you can even take it in the bath).
A word of caution – please make sure your skin reacts well to the plastics before use, and always involve lube and store clean.
For foreplay – massage oil
Lush is always the last word in massage bars for people who appreciate a considerable amount of touching and affection in their bedroom play.
The Tuca Tuca is a current favourite for RESCU. It’s a heady mix of violets, rose petals and shea butter which is equal parts seductive and romantic.
Grab it, store it in a cool place and pull it out whenever things need a little smoothing over.
For indulgence – lingerie
Alas, Dita Von Teese’s line for Target won’t be in stores till February, so anybody hankering for vintage gorgeousness must wait until Valentines Day for the opportunity.
However, all is not lost – beautiful lingerie is available at every turn for women who wouldn’t be seen dead in a red, white-fur-trimmed Santa teddy.
Elle MacPherson Intimates are always a beautiful bet, particularly their Boudoir section – or, if you’re looking for something a little more edgy, peruse the corsetry range at bespoke boutique What Katie Did. You won’t regret it.
For the man who experiments – the ring
This is not only a gift for men’s pleasure – it’s also for partners’ enjoyment.
The Lelo Tor is one of those great sex toys, both well-designed and incredibly stimulating. It’s a cock ring for any man who appreciates increased sensation, and it’s so pretty you’ll want to leave it out on the dresser.
Maxxx Black don’t call it The Gentleman’s Pleasure Object for nothing.
For the luxury-lover – silk restraints
Luxury and bondage do go together – for the more discerning and expensive taste, there are leather and horse-hair accessories on the market for upwards of three figures – but a simple, cheap taste does just as well.
Coco De Mer, the famous US erotic emporium, has a divine silk restraint for the purposes of people too refined to simply use a tie.
Be careful – once you start buying Coco De Mer, you may never stop…
For the best of the best – the ultimate vibrator
The Zini Roae is the vibrator any woman dreams of. It seems to induce screaming orgasms in nearly every customer.
It’s clearly not for the faint-hearted or the tentative user of sex toys – but for a sex-loving toy enthusiast this is the ultimate in Christmas stocking-stuffers.
For the play-together pair – the tool belt
Don’t be put off by the name. Pure Romance’s Jelly Toy Belt is a serious intimate accessory for a partnership looking for sizzle.
It’s easy, well-designed and creates pleasure in huge quantities for both players. Just what everybody needs.
(Pure Romance can also host a little bedroom-items party for yourself and your friends, if you’d prefer your Christmas evenings spent with ticklers and lingerie than carols and eggnog.)
