A blog post from Australia's favourite Sex Coach Isiah McKimmie




A great sex life is a crucial part of a happy and long-lasting relationship, but just how can you reignite that spark when things are a little flat? 

 

It’s a familiar dilemma for many long-term couples.  You still love each other, but you've lost ‘that spark’.  You’re not having sex very often anymore (as much as you know is healthy for a relationship) and it’s become a little ‘routine’.

 

You tell yourself that it’s because you’re so busy, or your relationship ‘has moved on’ from there, but actually, you worry that it will eventually cause problems and break your relationship apart.

 

You wonder how you can make your sex life exciting again, how you can feel like having sex more often.  You’re just not sure where to start. 

 

You’re here, so you’re heading in the right direction! 

 

You know that a great sex life is important for a relationship.  You know it can also be so enjoyable!  You know that when you’re having great sex, things between you are smoother, you feel closer and you both feel happier.

 

I believe that everyone deserves to have the relationship and sex life they really want - the one they know deep down is possible.  And I know with the right support and information everyone can get there. 

 

So do the beautiful women at Love Rouge. 

 

That’s why we've teamed up to offer you two valuable online programs to help you reignite passion and intimacy in your relationship. 

 

For a strictly limited time, we’re offering you 3 Keys to a Juicy Passionate Relationship (valued at $1,000) absolutely free.

The 3 Keys to a Juicy Passionate Relationship

Juicy Sexy Love Program

Enrolment open from 5 to 19 August 2014

 

We want you to reignite passion, to feel close and connected again and make sure that your relationship will last.  We know you deserve it.

 

For the past 7 years, I’ve been helping individuals and couples improve their sex lives and relationships in individual therapy, but I know that’s not going to work for everyone. 

 

Not everyone will feel comfortable talking to a therapist about personal details of their sex life.  And not everyone will have the time or the money to go to regular therapy sessions. That’s why I’ve put together The 3 Keys to a Juicy Passionate Relationship and Juicy Sexy Love - easy-to-follow professional advice, fun (and sexy) activities plus plenty of personal support to help you reignite your passion, rediscover your special connection and ensure your relationship stays happy and strong. 

 

Inject some fun and passion into your relationship.

Types of Vibrators and What's Best For You

Elissa Boyd - Thursday, December 05, 2013

 

If you are new to the world of vibrators and are overwhelmed by what’s out there, you are not alone! A large portion of our customers fall into this group - they want to try something new in the bedroom and just don’t know where to start.

 

So to help, here is a simple guide to the 4 key types of vibrators…

 

1. The EXTERNAL or CLITORAL Vibe

 

If you are new to pleasure toys then an external or clitoral vibrator could be perfect. They are not intimidating in size or shape - in fact they are very discreet! As the name suggest, the External / Clitoral vibrator is designed for external use – to stimulate the clitoris.

 

You might be surprised to learn that it has been estimated that around 75% of women require clitoral stimulation to orgasm. It’s no wonder these vibrators are a popular option!

 

An external vibrator is perfect to use on your own or with your partner, especially when you are in a sexual position where you don’t have any clitoral contact. It’s even a great toy to use on a man’s erogenous zones and for anal play. 


We would recommend the discreet and ergonomic pebble design of LELO’s Lily; the powerful LELO Siri 2; or the fun and playful PicoBong Finger Vibe.

2. The INTERNAL or PENETRATIVE Vibe

If you are someone who would prefer a vibrator designed to penetrate, then you have a range of designs to suit all tastes…

Again, if you are new to pleasure toys then it may be worth starting out with a vibe on the smaller end of the scale. LELO’s Gigi 2 is one of our most popular vibes and it is designed specifically to target the G-spot. Gigi’s gentle curve and flattened head allows for stimulation of the often-elusive female G-spot, found on the front vaginal wall. Gigi’s flattened head also makes it perfect to use externally on the clitoris. Another G-spot vibe is the Picobong Moka, which is battery operated and waterproof to 1m.

If you’re looking for size, then we have a range of internal vibrators to fully satisfy. For those who aren't new to toys and aren't afraid of size, we would highly recommend the Fun Factory Big Boss. Measuring 21.7cm in length and 4cm in diameter, the Big Boss has a large, waterproof, silicone shaft and is designed to somewhat resemble a penis.

3. The RABBIT Vibrator

The distinguishable feature of the Rabbit Vibrator is that it has both an internal and external arm, for simultaneous vaginal and clitoral stimulation. This type of vibrator is more popular for solo use, but can also be used for play with a partner.

 

Rabbit vibrators became hugely popular when Charlotte on Sex and The City became addicted to her rabbit vibrator in ‘that’ episode in Season 1. But, can you believe, Season 1 of SATC was filmed way back in 1998 and rabbit vibrators have come a long loong way since then!

 

The name of the device was derived from the design of the clitoral stimulator arm, which looked like a pair of rabbit ears. Current designs have moved away from the conspicuous bunny ear to more ergonomic, sleek designs.

Our top selling rabbit vibrators are all waterproof. The Je Joue Fifi is velvety soft and offers simultaneous stimulation with a difference – it has three vibrating pleasure points – in the shaft and in two firm yet flexible clitoris-hugging ears.

 

The LELO Ina 2 is a classy, sensual vibe – it is ergonomically designed for a snug fit, with powerful but silent motors in both the internal and external pleasure points offering a buzz from sensitive to intense. So it is equally good for vibrator newbies and rabbit regulars.

 

The PICOBONG Kaya is a great battery operated rabbit option, made from high quality body safe silicone.

Couple Vibrators

Yes, it has happened. A hands free vibrator specifically designed for use during intercourse. Since its launch in ­­­2008, the We-Vibe has been a world-wide best seller and has garnered much attention and recognition for its innovative and unique design. The We-Vibe was even featured on an episode of Oprah about Erotica!

 

The newest design is the We-Vibe 4 Plus which comes with an app enabling couples to connect in new, exciting ways  It' s so discreet it can live on the bedside table!

 

So, how does it work? There are lots of videos on the web to explain it, but simply put – it is a U-shaped design with two arms that both vibrate. The larger arm sits against the clitoris. The smaller, ribbed arm slips inside the vagina and fits snugly against the G-spot. It is ergonomically designed to stay in place, so it’s hands free. With some water based lubricant coating the internal arm, your partner can then penetrate whilst the We-Vibe is still in place inside the vagina, so that both of you experience the pleasure of the vibrations. The remote control also allows you to scroll through the different vibration settings. And it’s waterproof!

 

Another option for a Couple Vibrator is a vibrating cock ring. We recommend two waterproof options - LELO’s TOR2 or Je Joue’s Mio - it is super-soft, flexible and powerful. A cock ring will keep him harder for longer and provide you with intense external vibrations as you have sex. Share stronger, longer, simultaneous orgasms with your partner with this fantastic design.

Top Tips To Keep In Mind When Buying A Vibrator:

 

  • Take care of your vibrator and use a toy cleaning spray or wash it in warm soapy water after every use, being careful not to submerge those that aren’t waterproof.

  • It is important to practice safe sex, even when you’re alone! Be aware that the quality of your vibrator is vital – have a quick squiz at our article on phthalates for further information. But for now, know that the Ladies at Love Rouge take your health seriously and all our vibrators are Phthalate free.

  • Do NOT use silicone based lubricants with your silicone toys - you will damage the toy. Stick to water based or organic oil based lubricants. For more information on the world of lubricants visit our lubricants article.

  • If you are buying as a couple, talk to your partner - communication is the key when you first venture into the world of vibrators together.

  • Experiment. Toys can be versatile so read the instructions, watch product reviews on the web and play around with it - you never know what you will discover it can do!

 

Lubricants Explained

Love Rouge Consultant - Saturday, July 06, 2013

LUBRICANTS… Explained


Even if you don't think you need lubricant, you will be surprised at what it can do for your sex life. Lube is an incredibly cheap and effective bedroom accessory that will give you bang for your buck in multiple ways… Firstly, using lubricant with sex toys makes it easier and more pleasurable. But lube also makes hand jobs easier, quickies no problem and lovemaking sessions longer. The use of water-based lubricants also helps prevent thrush and reduces the pain that penetration can sometimes cause. (Oh, and it is a must for anal sex!).


LUBE CAN REALLY HELP….

  • During Pregnancy/Childbirth/Nursing: the hormonal fluctuations involved in having children can reduce your own lubrication.
  • During menopause: as we mature, the body produces less female hormones, affecting our natural moisture levels.
  • If You Have Diabetes: diabetic angioplasty can decrease moisture. 
  • If You’re Taking Medication: some medications can decrease your natural lubrication, even common ones like the Pill, decongestants and antihistamines.
  • If You’re Trying to Conceive: couples trying to conceive should use a lubricant that is ‘sperm-friendly’ – a natural water-based pH-balanced lubricant is best.
  • During your Menstrual cycle: periods change the oestrogen levels, and you guessed it—affect natural lubrication. Every woman is different, but often close to or just after your period can be a dryer time.
  • When Stressed: stress affects sexual response in women (and men).
  • When In Water: sex is great fun in the bath and shower, but the water will wash away your natural lubrication, so it is best to supplement with a lube whilst enjoying water based activity.
  • When Using a Condom: Lubricating the condom will help keep it from breaking as it reduces the stress applied.
  • To Save Time: sometimes the stimulation time required for the body to produce enough natural lubrication is longer than you want it to be. Lubricants can help your body feel ready for sex when your mind does not, with no lag time in between!
  • When Dehydrated: Hungover? Exercised excessively? Too many coffees and not enough water? If you have a dry mouth, you can bet you’re dry downstairs too…

TYPES OF LUBRICANTS


Virtually all lubes on the market today fall into one of four categories. Water-based lubes are by far the most popular, but each type has its own strengths and weaknesses.

As with all products you use in a biologically intimate way, we suggest you read the label when buying a lubricant. We recommend using a natural (preferably organic) lubricant that is glycerin and paraben free. Also, ensure your lubricant is condom and toy safe, if you plan to use your lubricant with these products.

 

Water-Based Lubes


Water-based lubes are just that: primarily made from water. They are smooth and slick but not sticky. 

Most importantly, water-based lubes are completely condom and sex toy safe. Another plus is that water based lubes are water-soluble, making cleaning up a non-event. Water-based lube easily washes off the skin and fabrics with warm soapy water.

Being water-based means this kind of lubricant is absorbed into the skin more quickly, so it doesn’t last as long as other types of lubes. So you may need to reapply, depending on how long your sex session lasts. 


If you have sensitive skin, water-based is definitely the way to go. However, even some water-based lubes are not irritation free, so steer clear of products that contain propylene glycol or chlorhexidine, which can cause irritation in some women.


        

  Viamax Water Glide Sliquid Organic Natural Lube





Silicone-Based Lubes


With these lubricants, the main ingredient is: silicone. This is why silicone based lubes cost more than the water and oil based equivalents, because they contain more expensive ingredients. Silicone lubes are ultra-moisturizing and feel similar to oil on the skin, but lighter and less sticky.

 

The two biggest pros of silicone lubricants are water-resistance and longevity – they are ideal for long-lasting lubrication and you won’t need to reapply during sex - a small amount goes a long way. Silicone lube is also great for anal sex and also as a massage lotion, as it doesn’t absorb into the skin.

Important to know, you cannot use silicone lube with silicone sex toys – it will degrade the silicone finish on the toy (and void your warranty!). But silicone lubricants are safe to use on your glass toys and with both non-latex and latex condoms.

Silicone lubricants don’t air dry or absorb into the skin but they are easily washed off the skin using soap and water. But silicone will stain fabrics and it’s hard to get out... so be careful where you’re squirting it!



 Sliquid Organic Silk Lube



Oil-Based Lubes

 

Oil-based lubricants can provide good lubrication with a less ‘slick’ feel. The plus side is that they are longer lasting than water-based lubes, particularly for use in water.

There are a variety of oil-based lubricants. Petroleum based lubricants should not be used with condoms - the oil will break down the latex. These are generally not recommended.

However, there are all-natural plant oil-based lubricants that are in fact safe to use with condoms. So always read the label or ask you friendly shop assistant for advice.

The down side of oil-based lubes is that clean-up is more bothersome and also there can be a slight smell to the lube itself, particularly if it has been made from all natural ingredients. Just imagine a much subtler scent to that of sunflower seed oil.




  Viamax Organic Glide



Flavoured & Warming Lubes

 

Flavoured lubricants can be fun, particularly for oral sex. Just remember to check if they are condom safe. Also, be aware that flavoured lubricants contain sugars, which can encourage yeast infections and urinary tract infections, however a simple shower after use can mitigate the chances of this occurring.

Warming lubricants, should be tested first to ensure it’s not too warm for your liking. A good warming lubricant can assist in arousal and intensify sensations without being distracting.

Sex Is Good For Your Health

Love Rouge Consultant - Saturday, June 08, 2013


Yes of course, sex is about pleasure…but it also provides a wealth of health benefits. So why not make the O in your health and fitness rOutine stand for Orgasm? The girls at Love Rouge like to call it Sexercise!


And here are the reasons why Sex is Good For Your Health:-

  • While having sex, a woman's oestrogen level can double, and this makes her hair shine and the skin becomes softer. The ‘after sex’ glow!

  • Sex is a fun and fantastic calorie burner – you can burn up to about 380 calories per hour during sex (unless of course you use body chocolate…). Creative position choice will also stretch and tone a range of muscles in the body. Why not release your inner acrobat!

  • Sex can bring relief to body aches and pains, including headaches, arthritis, even PMS. Reaching orgasm can increase your pain threshold by more than 70%, boosting levels of the hormone oxytocin, resulting in a release of endorphins. Endorphins act as your body’s painkillers; they have a similar chemical structure to morphine. So next time you reach for a Panadol, why not try the more enjoyable alternative!

  • Speaking of Endorphins… feeling down or stressed? Jump in the sack! Endorphins lower stress and boost confidence, leaving you with a general feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.

  • Passionate kissing will actually help cleanse you and your partner’s teeth and tongue! Kissing encourages saliva activity, which is an incredibly effective cleansing and diluting agent for mouth bacteria. It also makes the mouth more alkaline, reducing the acid that causes teeth decay. Who knew?!
  • Sex is a natural antihistamine! Sexual activity helps trigger the release of the natural agent that serves to inhibit the release of histamine. Put simply sex can help relieve symptoms of hay fever and blocked sinuses.

  • Sex improves heart health. The idea men are more susceptible to heart attacks during sex is pure myth.

  • Phero-moan… Did you know the more sexually active you are, the more pheromones your body releases? Pheromones are those subtly perfumed chemicals your body releases to attract partners.

  • Be gone high cholesterol! Over time, sex can help reduce cholesterol by balancing the ratio of good cholesterol against bad cholesterol.

  • Having problems sleeping? After orgasm, we become sleepy and relaxed and this state of body and mind can lead to deep sleep. While the post orgasm sleepy phenomenon is more pronounced in males than females, if the woman is completely satisfied, which sometimes means achieving multiple orgasms, then they should also experience an increase of the chemicals associated with sleep.

  • A healthy sex life equals healthy sperm. Australian researchers discovered that in men whose sperm showed significant DNA damage, daily ejaculation reduced this damage by 12%. Better out than in, as they say!

  • Boost your Immunity – having sex a couple of times a week has been linked with higher levels of immunoglobulin A, which is an antibody that can protect you from colds and other infections. Brilliant!

  • Use it or lose it! As women get older their oestrogen levels drop. Oestrogen is the hormone that increases a woman’s sex drive and stimulates desire. Research has found that regular sex increases the production of oestrogen. An American study found that menopausal women who had sex every week had oestrogen levels twice as high as women who abstained.

Phthalates and Vibrators

Love Rouge Consultant - Saturday, June 08, 2013


A must read for anyone who owns or is considering buying a vibrator / sex toy...


We all know pleasure toys are used in a very intimate way. What you may not know is the potential health risks posed by using inferior products. Unlike other plastic items such as medical devices and children’s chew-friendly toys, adult toys still go largely unregulated and untested.

 

Here we explain why it’s important to practise safe sex… even when you’re alone!

 

What are Phthalates? 

Many adult toys such as vibrators and jelly rubber-like dildos are made of polyvinyl chlorides (PVC). PVC is cheap and easy to work with, hence its widespread use in many adult products. Phthalates pronounced "thal-ates" are the chemical softeners used to make PVC plastics soft, mouldable, transparent and longer lasting. 

 

The danger is that as plastics age, phthalates can leach out and get absorbed into the body. Phthalates can easily leach out because there is no chemical bond between phthalates and the plastics in which they are mixed.

 

Why is it important I know about Phthalates? 

In recent years, testing has revealed the potentially serious health impacts of phthalates. Phthalates have been shown to cause birth defects and change human hormone levels. There are also studies being conducted into the link between phthalates and breast cancer in women.

 

Research has already been carried out into the effects of phthalates in children - the US, Japan and the European Union have all placed bans on phthalates in children’s toys. But no such rules exist for adult toys!! So without government regulation, it’s important that you, the consumer, know about phthalates in order to make informed decisions.

 

How do I know if my vibrator or dildo contains Phthalates? 

If you have a toy that has a very pungent plastic-like smell, the likelihood is that it contains phthalates. Also the cheaper your sex toy, the more likely it is to contain phthalates.

 

If in doubt, have a look at the box and check the product specifications. If nothing is stated, then find the manufacturer online and check out the product specifications or ask a reputable adult shop consultant.

 

Be warned - one type of vibrator from one brand may be phthalate free, but that does not mean all from that brand are.

 

How to know for certain? 

There are fantastic adult brands that only use body safe materials.

 

The ladies at Love Rouge recommend buying a vibrator that specifically states that it is phthalate free. Some brands whose entire range is phthalate free include LELO, JE JOUE, FUN FACTORY and PICO BONG.

 

If you have any concerns or questions about your vibrator please feel free to call us in store or send us an email.

Feature Product: Kegel Balls - LELO Luna Beads, Je Joue Ami and Fun Factory Duo

Kartina Pfister - Thursday, November 22, 2012


For females in particular I’m sure at some stage in your life a doctor or health care professional have encouraged you to do your pelvic floor exercises. The say to use a trigger point like being stopped at the lights or standing in a lift. The problem…we forget, or we start them and two minutes later get distracted.

Thankfully there are sexual health products that can do the job for us while we continue on with our busy lives.   


At Love Rouge kegel balls like the LELO Luna Beads and Luna Bead MINI, Je Joue Ami set and the Fun Factory Duo have become one of our most popular products.

We are often asked “How do they work?” and “How do I use them?”


What are kegel balls?

Kegel balls, also known as Ben Wa balls are small, weighted balls designed to be inserted into the vagina to strengthen the circum vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. Simply put they are a fitness system for the vaginal and pelvic floor muscles.  They are also used to provide internal and g-spot massage and stimulation to increase arousal. 


Why use kegel balls?

Also known as kegel exercises, after Dr Kegel who popularised them, pelvic floor exercises should be a part of every woman’s exercise routine regardless of age. As well as giving you control over your bladder, your pelvic floor supports your vagina, uterus and bowel. Importantly by strengthen these internal muscles you can achieve more intense orgasms and can grip a partner more firmly during sex.

Who benefits from having strong vaginal and pelvic muscles?

Everyone!

  • Women with incontinence issues, who leak when sneezing or coughing
  • It’s recommended pregnant women regularly do their pelvic exercises to help their body cope with the growing weight of their baby.
  • Older and menopausal women should make an effort to strengthen and maintain their pelvic floor as menopause may cause their muscles to change and weaken, possibly leading to incontinence issues and less enjoyment of sex.
  • Women of all ages can enjoy a more satisfying sex life as the benefits of regular use of Kegel balls include increased sexual muscular control, enhanced sensation, and more intense orgasms.

 Types of kegel balls


LELO Luna Beads and LELO Luna Beads MINI 

have weighted balls which can be swapped out and changed from the lighter pink balls to the heavier blue balls  as your muscles become stronger


LELO Luna Beads



Je Joue Ami 

come as a set of 3 weights and you can move up to a heavier set as you become stronger




Fun Factory Duo 

come as a single set and don’t increase in weight for a consistent workout




How do kegel balls work?


Kegel balls help by stimulating muscle activity, allowing a woman to do kegel exercising without having to even think about it. It’s almost as simple as set and forget.

You can insert your kegel balls and then simply go about your daily activities. Once in place, the natural movement of your body as you walk, clean, or some errands will cause the weights in the balls to move and as a result in vaginal and pelvic muscles contract. In addition the muscle resistance against the weight of the balls helps with the strengthening.  Even small, subtle movement will give you a natural workout that also feels good.   


How to use kegel balls 

  • Similar to inserting a tampon, find a comfortable, relaxed position such as sitting, standing or lying down.
  • Gently push the balls into your vaginal opening, use a little lube if required. 
  • Stop just as they're completely in.
  • In duo style balls slowly insert the first ball then the second ball ensuring the cord or string, is outside you to assist with removing the Kegel balls later. We suggest using a small bit of lubricant to help it in. 
  • Note sometimes the second ball may need a slightly firmer push as the muscles will grab the first ball.
  • Once you start moving around you will feel the weights inside you moving. You will notice your muscles latching and holding the balls essentially doing all the work for you.
  • Like any exercise we recommend using them for say 30 minutes a few times a week. Although there is no harm in wearing them for longer periods. 
  • Once you gain strength you can move up to using a heaver weight to increase your workout.  

Important notes: 
If you have serious incontinence issues or you have recently given birth and/or are still healing check with your Doctor for advice.

A Beginners Guide to Vibrators

Anna Brown - Saturday, June 09, 2012

 

Ok, firstly, I’m not a prude.  I love sex. It’s the foreign objects that scare me.  The toys that you pick up and say - what – the- hell – does – that – do?   They make me feel prudish.  Really it’s my inexperience that scares me, and almost shames me from trying them out. 

Anyhow, I have to confess that after being addicted to Sex and the City I went out and bought a Jack Rabbit.  It was waterproof and we had a lot of really bubbly baths together.  It’s not the quietest vibe, which made it slightly awkward at times.  I ended up throwing it out, embarrassed by its bulkiness and noise.  

A few months ago I went to a film premier and we were given vibrating bullets in our gift bags – genius!  I was embarrassed but my boyfriend was surprisingly really keen to try them out.  A couple of days later he came home with the batteries and we were away.  Honestly I have to say I was blown away by the sensation of him hold the vibrating bullet against my clitoris.  My arousal fed his and we had an incredible night.   But after while the cord, the remote and batteries were starting to bother me.  The bullet had lost its shine. 

Well then I was thrown into the deep end getting a job at Love Rouge selling vibrators. Yes. That’ll get you up to speed… no pun intended.  At Love Rouge we have an entire wall of pleasure toys; the Great Wall, if you like.  The first time I saw it I couldn’t believe how beautiful and silent vibes have become.  Most do not use batteries anymore, instead they charge like a mobile phone. There is a vibe – the LELO Mia- that looks like a lipstick and can charge through the USB port in your computer!

I was particularly struck by the LELO Tiani 2 - it has a silky soft silicone finish and sits around the vagina to stimulate the clitoris during sex with a remote control that works from 12 metres away.  Ahem… did someone say naughty dinner date?

Then I came across the We-Vibe 3. Ok, I didn’t even know there was a We-Vibe 2. This vibe inserts around the vagina to stimulate the clitoris and the g-spot simultaneously. Is this not the greatest invention since the light globe? 

For external fun the LELO Siri offers serious horsepower for clitoral stimulation.  It’s the powerful cousin of the popular LELO Lily and Nea.  With travel locks and a 12 month replacement guarantees they are well worth the investment.

This brings me to Luna beads.  Kegel balls had always really confused me before working at Love Rouge.  I seriously didn’t get what people would do with those things.  Did you know that inserting them for as little as 30 mins a day a few times a week while you undergo light exercise like washing the dishes or cleaning the house, gives your pelvic floor muscles a work out and increases their strength? You receive an array of health benefits including longer lasting orgasms for both partners…yes please! 

I hope you are as excited as I have been learning a bit more about these genius inventions.  Now the only problem is choosing one. Or maybe two..?
