Yes a sex drawer, or whereever you store your naughty shit. Make sure its in arms reach because nothing breaks the mood faster than having to get up and walk when you're trying to get it in.
Here are six essentials—some sexy, some just plain considerate—you should add to your bedside drawer tonight.
1. A Variety of Condoms
Guys often put more thought into their razors than their condoms.
Sure, you want a condom that prevents STDs. But that’s like picking a razor just because the label says, “Proven to cut hair.”
The perfect condom for you just might be the one you haven’t tried yet.
Experts suggests picking up a variety pack, with several different types of textures, flavors, and thicknesses. Check out this 24-pack from Durex, at just under $10.
It’s important to have both latex and non-latex condoms.
“Some people are allergic to latex and others have a latex sensitivity,” Dr. Bruce Hampter says. “We recommend Okamoto condoms for those with latex sensitivity.”
This little breath mint’s usage in the boudoir is twofold.
One, it refreshes your breath for kissing.
And two, if your dude pops one in his mouth before giving you oral, let’s just say the sensation is extra tingly.
Travis, 31, describes the experience as “shocking, unexpected, and very cool.” He compared it with the feeling of an Icy Hot patch (on a less sensitive part of your body), but without the burn. Just the tingles.
Yes for the Whiskey Dick. I don't care how wet you or your boo claims your boi mussy is, at some point you're gonna need some lube.
“Find something at a sex store that’s sexier and a little more fun than, say, your regular K-Y Jelly,” says Nick Savoy, president of Love Systems, a dating consultant company for men, and author of the dating book Magic Bullets Handbook.
If you want to impress your partner with your lube, Savoy suggests a product like Uberlube (Amazon.com, $28).
“It’s the best-looking lube for your nightstand,” he says. “The glass bottle is very chic, and it’s a great massage oil and lubricant for both anal sex.”
When in doubt, try a sampling of lubes. Most sex stores sell one-time-use “pillow packets” of lubes—flavored and unflavored—for less than $2.
If wetness is an issue, don’t be embarrassed to reach for the bottle. “If it’s needed, just put it on like you would grab for a condom when it’s time,” adds Savoy.
4. Blow Job Spray
Has your partner or hookup ever had dry mouth while going down on you? It’s not fun, nor is it easy to talk to him about.
Doc Johnson’s GoodHead line of products offers a blowjob spray for dry mouth called “Wet Head” (Amazon.com, $5) in a variety of flavors, including sugar-free Sweet Strawberry.
“Make the spray about their enjoyment, not yours,” suggests E'Derrick Simmons, a sexologist states.
“You don’t want him to feel like his blowjob sucks,” Simmons advises. “So say to him, ‘I bought this new spray that makes blowjobs taste like strawberries. Try it, I think you’ll like it.’ ”
5. Baby Wipes and a Towel
The least your guy should expect after a roll in the sack is to not have to make a mad dash for the bathroom to clean up.
“Stock a few individually-wrapped wet baby wipes and a small dry washcloth in your drawer,” suggests Savoy.
Why the dry washcloth? Because noone is going to be okay sleeping in a wet spot.
6. Sex Toys
When he’s ready to try something different, will you be taken by surprise? Or will your bedside drawer have exactly what you need to help turn fantasy into a reality?
Sex kits have everything you need for a variety of interests, ranging from anal to blowjobs to bondage.
Our favorite is the Curious Couples Kit (The Pleasure Chest, $40), which includes a “Position of the Day” Book, a vibrating cock ring, edible body powder, lube, and even IOU sex coupons.
“It’s a great way to introduce your partner to something new that you can enjoy together without investing too much,” says Savoy.
