Discover the type of toy that works for the two of you...

More people than ever before have started to discover the benefits of using toys in the bedroom. Sex toys today aren’t just designed for long, lonely nights though – there are a wide variety of toys available for couples to enjoy that bring both partners a lot of pleasure.

When used correctly, the right toys can help build intimacy between the two of you and ensure you both receive the maximum level of enjoyment.

Not sure where to start? Take a look at the guide below to see which toys would best enhance your sexual journey with your partner.


By far one of the most common and popular toys on the market, there are hundreds of different vibrators available. If you and your partner are new to this type of toy, start out on the lowest vibration setting. Some people are more sensitive than others, so higher settings can be too much for some people. Start off low and increase the vibration speed as and when you both feel you want to.

There’s no need to worry about a vibrator making too much noise – with whisper quiet technology, Durex have it covered with their new range of vibrators.

Have a browse with your partner and learn together how you can play with them to suit both of your needs best.

Pleasure rings

More commonly referred to as a cock ring, these toys come in a range of different options. They are designed to keep the penis aroused for longer, increasing the duration and strength of erection. Some even come with a vibration setting which can provide extra pleasure for both of you during intercourse. The Durex Play Vibrations Cock Ring is a great example for under £5 which is designed to provides pleasure to both you and your partner.

Shower and bath toys

Forget rubber ducks – invest in some great waterproof toys that you and your partner can use together in the bath or shower. Ensure that they are specifically designed for water play so that they can be used in this environment. You may find that you don’t need lubricants when using toys in the bath or shower but if you do need a little extra moisture then make sure the lube you choose is suitable for water play too.


As well as toys, there are a number of accessories you can try out to enhance your sexual pleasure. Ribbed condoms, flavoured lube and flavoured condoms can all add a little more excitement to your sex life. You’ll be surprised by how many different flavours are out there – you can even find your favourite cocktail flavours as Durex does a delicious ‘Pina Colada’ flavoured lube.
