A sex room, also referred to as a dark room or fantasy room, is a dedicated space for individuals, couples, and other types of intimate partners to explore their physical, emotional, and spiritual connection often through erotic play. Many think of dark, dungeon-like basements filled with various instruments of torture; however, a sex room can be a much softer and more romantic journey that doesn’t have to involve much kink at all.

Throughout the series, Melanie Rose, also known as the ‘Mary Poppins of Eroticism’, helps several clients transform their chosen spaces into safe havens where they can feel sexy and uninhibited. Each episode begins with an introduction and consultation with the clients to determine their unique fantasies, fetishes, and boundaries. Melanie Rose then both educates the clients about ways to tap into their innermost sexual desires and renovates their homes to reflect these wishes.

In episode 1, we meet Taylor and Ajay who ask designer Melanie Rose to spice things up with a rock ‘n’ roll sex basement. In the next episode, Melanie creates a sensual, swank and sexy suite to help couple Raj and Ryan communicate with blindfolds then Hannah and Wesley’s basement becomes a sexy spot for shower sex.

Episode 3 follows Orlando and Matthew who want a masculine room with a view to maintain the chemistry in their long-distance romance. The black and white shots from their sexy photoshoot are red hot! We also meet Shenika and Matthew who need to bring their sexy back after having kids. What parent can’t relate to this plight?

The series continues with a swanky dungeon to fit Lester and Soriya’s polyamorous family where Melanie adds special touches to incorporate each partner’s needs. We next meet Meaghan and Dave who seek five-star spa vibes for their intimate escape while Melanie pushes the couple to explore new levels of kink. Queer performers Bettie and Brody get a backstage boudoir and first-time homeowners, Ouima and Jesse, ask Melanie for a seductive cabaret lounge complete with a stripper pole.

Next we are introduced to frisky high school sweethearts Tricia and Gary who have a freaky farm fetish. Episode 8 features nomadic artists Heather and Sara whose van gets a sexy satin and sex swing upgrade. Finally, stand-up comedian Lisa gets a secret garden where she can get her groove back as a newly single woman.

Sex Toys for Women

The general major obstacle is that men expect and fear that some sort of catastrophe may befall upon them in case they come home one day, go to their partner and say: “Honey, I’m home. And guess what I’ve picked up on the way back?” and then, without warning, inelegantly, the man opens up his surprise shopping bag and precipitously places in front of her eyes – all of a sudden grown bigger – one of those terrific, 7. 5 inches long realistic vibrators, batteries included. Well, the foreseen catastrophe is very likely to occur – if you like percentages, it is in the range of 90% of the cases that some sort of disaster should ensue – if this is the single method you have pictured as appropriate to introduce to her your newly acquired sex friends, in the shape of sex toys for women and for you.

For one thing, you do not want to see her eyes grown bigger with speechless amazement. There’s one thing to see her eyes widen with pleasure, and there’s a completely different situation when one of the realistic dildos you have imagined as just what the doctor ordered is reason of shock for her. Therefore, the best manner to handle your desire of seeing your partner feel comfortable with receiving and then using some sex toys for women is to have a talk prior to your going online and ordering them for her. So here are some facts to help you gather some courage necessary to talk to her about a subject of this sort.

Here’s a good starting point: did you know that according to an impressive number of surveys women who are already involved in a relationship are more open than single ones to the idea of using vibrators and other sex toys so as to get the best out of their sex life? In fact, not only are they more open to the idea, they are actually putting it in practice more often then those unmarried or uninvolved in a stable relationship. Sex toys are often perceived – by men and women alike – as a reliable manner of actually broadening the horizons of the already beaten path of sexual experiences. Subsequently, before making a gift out of the available realistic dildos, glass dildos, anal beads, bullets or any other sex toys talk openly to her or at least give her a hint, a hint generous enough for her to understand that it has crossed your mind to acquire some sex toys for her.

Then, when you have settled to buy sex toys for women, invite her to join you in your search, especially if she is a novice in the field. Moreover, remember her that you do not think that your sex life is on a downturn. Make it as specific as possible. On the other hand, if there are negative aspects in your sexual practices of which you and her are both aware, you may try to present the toys as a potential, reliable means of repairing some idle facets in your relationship. Realistic dildos may come as her first choice; for a beginner, realistic vibrators, i.e. looking like the real thing, are more easy to become accustomed to simply because they are generally designed to accurately represent a penis. There are even testicle details added to the penis-like shape of such realistic dildos. A plus point is given that the range of realistic dildos is remarkably wide, so she will surely find the one to suit her.

Women use realistic dildos for penetration; however, most of them also use them for stimulating the areas around or on their clitoris. So do not be surprised if your partner chooses a product like the clitterific flex: not only does it stimulate the vagina on the inside, but it also “assists” the woman on the path toward untried before clitoral orgasms. Therefore, your partner has finally unleashed her desires and is enjoying the benefits of her choice; in the meantime, watching her get the right vibes is surely a sight to arouse you. After she has been intensely stimulated by her toy, your penetration is expected with increased enthusiasm. In the end, both she and you will appreciate the significance that the sex toys for women has in the improvement of your regular sexual intercourse, even if they remain within the boundaries of the real-like thing; the true-to-life feeling remains in the appearance of the vibrators, because otherwise they definitely move more swiftly and steadier than fingers, hands, penis, tongue and other parts of your body you use in order to stimulate your partner sexually, so as to arouse either clitoral orgasms or inside-vagina unique sensations.

Consequently, discomfort should not accompany you when you decide to surprise your partner with a more unusual gift. The fact should only embarrass you as long as you prove really clumsy in presenting her with your gift. If prior conversations on the topic have been concluded favorably for the acquisition of sex toys and if you have noticed that your partner has a preference for a certain type of toys, then you know what to do. After you purchase the toy(s), all you have to do is to find the nicest way to gift wrap it (them) and maybe attach to the wrap up a suggestive, sexy invitation. Maybe even present them in the form of a dedicated sensual playroom. If everything is done appropriately, your gift will be received with words and giggles of satisfaction.
