Scary sexy

You want to be a little more adventurous in bed, you say? It's time to spice things up for you and your honey, you realized? Not to worry, there are plenty of sex toys out there that will do just the trick. And yes, some are a little intimidating, but not to worry. Here, we'll tell you which ones are scary enough to excite your love making sessions, but are still tame enough for amateurs.

Heated Lube

You and your honey have used the regular lubricant, but have you ever tried one that warms you up? The Astroglide Warming Lubricant ($7.69 at, for starters, has been said to give the woman even more pleasure than usual. After all, the natural lubricant your body emits is warm. It's like the real thing. Don't worry about a burning sensation -- it's a gentle solution.

Nipple Clamps

Yes, these Adjustable Nipple Clamps ($17.99 at might look more like an apparatus used at the dentist's office back in the late 1800s, but for some users, they can feel kind of nice. They're made out of high-quality hygienically superior metal. Fine-tune the tightness to your liking. You call the shots.

A Paddle

Okay, this might bring you back to the days of hazing in college, but hopefully you weren't a part of that. This Heart Plush Spank-Her ($28.58 at is a little gentler than that one so you and your partner are in good hands.

The Body Swing

Not excited about attaching an apparatus to your ceiling? Attach something to yourself in the form of the Body Swing ($59.99 at It's fun to use while standing up -- and, in fact, might add a little safety to the standing-up position. Success!

Hot Wax

Yes, you've seen it on the Ricky Martin video for "Living La Vida Loca," but for some couples, using Johnni Black's Sensual Hot Wax ($6.02 at is nothing crazy. All you have to do is light up the special candles and drip them slowly on your partner. It's guaranteed to titillate his or her senses.
