7simpleWays.jpg1. Know the basics. If the last time you learned about sex was in the class your gym teacher taught in high school it might be time to brush up and make sure your knowledge is correct. Basic info about safer sex is always changing as science advances and we learn more about how we can best protect ourselves. If you want to be a sex positive advocate make sure the information you are sharing is correct!

Have a fantasy about keeping your partner immobilized with their legs spread wide apart for you or about locking their thighs together and denying them any pleasure? Just love the look of leather restraints? The Strict Leather Deluxe Locking Thigh Cuffs might be for you.

nippleclamps.jpgNipple clamps can look scary and intimidating. Even people who love nipple stimulation can balk at the idea of a toy that has the word "clamp" in the title. What most people don't realize is that nipple clamps are not all about pain. Don't get me wrong. If you are all about pain nipple clamps can certainly provide for you in ample quantities. But clamps can give sensation in a wide range of intensity. They can be the subtle pressure that you feel whenever you move or they can be the demanding throb that you won't forget for a moment. They also look sexy as hell on people of any gender. Nipples, like the anus, are equal opportunity anatomical parts. So men, women, bois, and grrrls can all find enjoyment from nipple clamps.

nipple_clamps.jpgWhen I opened the package that Extreme Restraints sent, I had moderate hopes for the product inside. The Nipple to Clit Tweezer Clamp Set looks rather unassuming, which could be a funny thing to say about a toy that is meant to be clamped to some of your most sensitive bits and has a substantial silver chain connecting it all together. Still, it can feel that once youʼve seen 20 to 30 sets of nipple clamps you have seen them all. "Ha!" I thought, "Just try to impress me, Nipple to Clit Tweezer Clamp Set!" Well, it turns out that it did.

Talk to MeAs a sex educator often I spend more time talking about communication than about vibrators, condoms, and anatomical function put together. From what I have experienced, it seems that the biggest indicator of whether or not you will achieve your sexual and emotional desires is largely dependent on how good of a communicator you are. Take a look at the various sources relationship advice. It may be phrased differently but I guarantee you that the majority of advice out there boils down to three things: communication, talking more, and communication. So there it is, your magic bullet. That said, if it is that easy why are people still hesitant to be open and honest with each other about what they want and need?
