You trust mail-order services to introduce you to new beauty finds, wine, and even period essentialsÃ¢â‚¬”but what about vibrators and condoms? A new breed of subscription services sends sex-cessoriesÃ¢â‚¬”like sex toys, lube, and moreÃ¢â‚¬”right to your door. Getting the mail is about to become way more exciting!
What the Buzz is All About Sarah Jayne, co-creator and editorial director for Unbound, a new erotic subscription service, says their products come with a slightly more sophisticated vibe compared to what you would find in a novelty store. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We felt like anything that existed in the adult-product realm was either incredibly cheesy or sold as this dark, seedy thing,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Jayne. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We wanted something a little more modern and convenient.Ã¢â‚¬Â
And it looks like other companies are cashing in on that idea. Similar services like Spicy Subscriptions ship full- and trial-sized products, while others like Bedroom Chemist send goodies specifically for couples.
Can a Package Perk Up Your Love Life? Whether youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re single or coupled up, a box full of erotic products can dial up your arousal and even give your relationship a boost. Ã¢â‚¬Å“For people who wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t necessarily gravitate toward anything new in a store, the onus to go and pick something is taken away from you here,Ã¢â‚¬Â says sexologist and relationship expert Logan Levkoff, Ph.D.Ã¢â‚¬”and that can be a good thing if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a little timid about the whole sex shop experience.
And no doubt itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll spark some awesome conversationsÃ¢â‚¬”and actionÃ¢â‚¬”between you and your partner. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Boredom is never a good thing,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Levkoff. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This can make things different and fun, and it can give you a renewed energy to talk about your sex life.Ã¢â‚¬Â Because, while itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s awesome when your partner defaults to something they know you like, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still worth switching things up every once in a while. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This can be great for a couple who has really gotten to the point where they know each otherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bodies intimately, but they want to do something new.Ã¢â‚¬Â
