Let’s Talk About… Sex, Baby
Written By Chloe Nichols
We can’t believe it’s finally here…launch day! We are so excited to share Bear & Lace with you; 2020 really wasn’t the year we had all hoped for, was it? Alongside 2021 proving to be a bit of a rough ride so far, especially in regards to sex, B&L is at your service. We’re here to help take your mind off of all the D&G (that’s doom and gloom, not Dolce).
At Bear & Lace, first and foremost, we believe that we should be talking about sex openly and freely. Sex should bring empowerment and excitement to all no matter age, orientation or desires. Looking after your sexual health & wellness during the pandemic shouldn’t take a back seat.
Of course, the ever changing landscape that is our sex lives has been on our minds at Bear & Lace. We’ve been sharing our favourite ways to keep things exciting in the bedroom during lockdown, whether solo or coupled up. So, to kick things off, here are some of our top tips to keep you entertained whilst we’re all stuck at home.
Looking Out For Number 1…
Dr. Lawton from the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) kindly reminds us that masturbation is most definitely not going to spread the dreaded C-19! Now is a great time to explore your sexual desires, try out new sex toys and realise your wildest solo fantasies.
Trying out new things is really important during times like these. Allowing yourself to drift into a different world, even just for a while, can be a real game-changer for how we feel in ourselves. Masturbation is one of the number one ways to get those endorphins pumping.
Living with family or with housemates may put you off exploring your own body, the last thing to get you in the mood will be the fear of someone hearing your vibrator. The super quiet bullets from Je Joue ensure your privacy – until the mind blowing orgasms you’ll have to keep under wraps!
Inspiring a loved one to explore themselves by sending a Bear & Lace luxury gift box is a great way to let them know you’re thinking of them, or treat yourself – after all, you are number 1.
Look, But Don’t Touch…
With travel limited we’ve found a few of our Bear & Lace girls have been forced to be away from their partners, yet again. Whether you’re in the same boat or you’re having to explore new ways of dating, our babes’ best tip has been to make full use of the latest tech to enjoy intimate moments together.
With a whole load of video messaging apps available, why not show off some sexy new lingerie for your partner? The tease can be undeniably erotic. If you’re not down for the video messaging world, why not look to the age-old sexperience of phone sex? Get those bluetooth headphones out and dial your lover.
Phone sex can be super exciting and, without the distractions of video, you are totally free to express your deepest desires. Don’t forget; if you try something new and it doesn’t work out, laugh it off and move onto something else – never be embarrassed to explore new angles.
Take the Lead…
If you are living with a partner and things have slowed down, take the lead! Sex doesn’t always come naturally and like all areas of relationships, sometimes we have to work at it. If you’re coupled up, gifting your partner with a Bear & Lace box, featuring our Orli x Bear & Lace Massage Candle, could be just what’s needed.
Set up your very own sensual spa where getting down and dirty doesn’t have to be the end goal. Exploring each other’s bodies through touch and massage can be a great way to reignite the spark. If things are getting in the way of your sex life, this could be just what you need to bring you closer together when it’s most needed.
The Future of Sex …
Finally, a little reminder this isn’t going to be forever. Use this time to enjoy yourselves where and when you can. Mental health and sexual wellness go hand in hand – if you’re struggling, give something new a go and it may well be the boost you need.
So go on, why not treat yourself (…and/or your partner) to some luxury erotic gifts? After all; an orgasm a day, keeps the doctor away.
