Ok, so as Salt n’ Pepa once wisely said, “Let’s talk about sex, baby.” We’re all adults here, and if not, send the kids out of the room, because it’s about to get adult up in here.
I spent a few years with the Sexy Switch firmly in the “Off” position. I’ll be really honest with you: it was a part of my life that was pretty scary and really complicated and, well, relationships and sex were just not on the menu for that period of time. I can’t tell you what can work for you if you’re recovering from a tough relationship breakup or personal trauma, but my choice was to take myself out of the game and to figure out who I was and what I wanted. I’m glad I did it, but now that I’m back in the game I want to talk about how to make our sex lives everything we want them to be, and that means that some aids can come into play.
When I was invited to the launch of Emily & Tony, I have to admit that I was probably a little more excited than anyone else in the room. Like, disproportionately excited, sort of hopping-in-my-chair excited. Because this is the sexy Reese’s Cup of Beauty and Personal Aids, kids. You say you want me to preview a line of aids developed by a top personal care/beauty brand (Anthony Sosnick of Anthony Brands such as Anthony for Men, Shaveworks, and the like) and a top sex therapist (Dr. Emily Morse from Bravo TV and radio fame) AND I can ask them questions about the products? This is the chocolate to the peanut butter of life and a beauty editor’s sexy time dream. Giggle all your want, but I WAS INVOLVED.
The products they’ve developed are worthy of mention on my site because they’ve got all the quality for which Anthony is known with an eye to a happy, fulfilling sex life from Emily’s keen eye for personal aids. There are five products currently in the line, including…
A Personally Hydrating Lubricant ($18) that isn’t sticky or strange, that literally melts into the skin, hydrates on contact and feels amazing…
A product called DownUnder Comfort ($18), which is – let’s face it – a ball balm. It’s there to keep things dry and comfortable. That’s the easiest way to say it, no further explanation needed. Thought I’d cut to the chase here. And then the pieces de resistance are….
Three amazing massage oil candles that are intoxicating in their aroma. They burn up to 50 hours and look just like any other candle in your home. But here’s the great part: blow out the wick after they’ve melted, wait about 30 seconds and suddenly you have massage oil in the perfect temperature. They come in three different fragrances: Créme de Vanille (a really sophisticated vanilla,) Coco (a melange of coconut, cedar mid-notes and sweet vanilla base,) and Fougere (musky and oh-so-sexy, with notes of licorice, cardameme, cedar, vetiver, patchouli, amber and nutmeg.)
I’m not going into details, but these candles are The Next Best Thing To Happen To You. You need them. You need them NOW.
Let’s face it: making sure your needs are met – and I mean ALL your needs are met – is part of living a great life. Why not throw a little non-scary bedside fun in there? These products are tried, tested and approved by me and The Lucky Guy Who Got To Try Them With Me, henceforth just referred to as “Lucky.” Get involved, folks. These products are amazing.
