Is Technology a Buzz Kill in the Bedroom?
I’ve never been a fan of technology in the bedroom. The idea of having a television in my serene space makes me feel funny. We all know watching TV, playing video games, use of laptops or tablets before bedtime can ruin our chances of getting a good night’s sleep, let alone the ways in which it can destroy the intimacy within a relationship. Going to bed with your partner should be a warm, fond and intimate experience. Not one where both partners are drawn to their own tech toys and actually ignoring each other.
That said, there is also a good argument for technology actually improving things in the bedroom. The use of technology has enabled sex toys to come a very long way – pun intended. These days vibrators can be waterproof, rechargeable and even remote controlled!
Jimmy Jane’s Hello Touch is an exciting sex toy that would never have been possible without technology. It consists of two vibrating finger pads and can be used all over the body to provide an intense stimulation experience either alone or with a partner.
The Wake Up Vibe, a vibrator that can wake you up with a smile at a predetermined time. Simply set the alarm as you would an alarm clock and instead of waking to a shrill sounding siren, slowly rise to the waves of pleasurable vibrations the toy generates.
The We-Vibe 4 – the latest in couples sex toys! Not only is its figure hugging design perfectly created to be worn by women, whilst making love with your partner, it is also rechargeable, waterproof and remote-controlled, too! The complete techtoy package!
Moka by pico bong is another great example of how technology has enhanced our sex toys. A slimline G-Spot targeting vibrator, (although this little gem is just as comfortable on your clitoris as it is on your G-spot), Moka is made from luxury soft silicone, making it a hygienic toy choice, waterproof and drum roll please … It has 12 different vibration patterns. Yes, we said 12!!! Now you know why it’s one of our best sellers. With so much choice, you’re bound to find something you like.
In addition to the toys themselves, there are all sorts of liquids and lubricants that have the benefit of technology behind them.
Rocket Delay Balm – a simple balm designed to delay climax and prolong pleasure.
Intensify Plus by Kama Sutra – available in warming or cooling these arousal gels designed specifically for women will enhance and intensify pleasure during intimacy.
Play O – our personal favourite – manufactured by Durex, Play O is specifically designed for women who struggle to reach orgasm. Around 80 per cent of women need clitoral stimulation so durex and technology created a miracle serum to help us reach it. Simply rub a small amount on the clitoris for an intense experience that will change your sex life.
There is also an abundance of apps that have been created specifically to enhance our pleasure. Take Tinder for example – helping single people get laid locally – or Spice Dice, an app that rolls two dice giving you and your partner sexual instructions to follow for foreplay or more.
Then of course there is the simple technology in our phones that enable us to send saucy SMS’s during the day, take intimate photos or even try out some home movie making! Please always ensure your photos/videos are only ever going to be seen by someone you truly trust. Finding a naked image of yourself on the internet in five years time is not something you’ll be thrilled about – unless you’re Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian of course!
So, all in all, whilst I’m still not a fan of watching TV in the bedroom, technology can certainly be credited for taking our pleasure to new heights.
Long may the technological buzz continue…
