If your love life has hit a rut and you’re looking for a way to spice things up, a dirty weekend away together might just be the answer. It’s the perfect opportunity to remind your significant other just how special they are and try something that you might not think to try at home.
Away from the commitments of your own home, the ever-growing pile of laundry and a to-do list that just keeps getting longer, sometimes you need a weekend away to connect with your partner and rekindle the intimacy. Think crisp white sheets, champagne on ice, a bath big enough for two (or three) and zero interruptions. You’ll be forgiven for slipping the “do not disturb” sign on the door handle and not venturing out of your room for three whole days.
If you’re planning a naughty weekend away, the first step is to pick your location. Unless you fancy explaining handcuffs and nipple clamps to a burly man at airport security, then you’re going to want to pick somewhere closer to home. The next step is to pack your suitcase and start queuing up your fantasies. Here are our top tips for items to take along for the kinkiest weekend away of your life…
Ditch the usual bra and knickers and upgrade it to something that makes you feel incredible. The best lingerie should fit well and make you feel stunning. If you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone, pick something a little more risque than your usual underwear. A lace body leaves little to the imagination, while a baby doll in a sheer fabric will leave little to the imagination. There’s a lingerie style for everyone, including plus size ladies, so don’t worry about not finding something!
If you’re planning to head out for a fancy meal, you can start the foreplay before you’ve even ordered dessert with this remote controlled vibrator. You’re always connecting with your other half by phone or text, so why not put that endless tapping to good use? The OhMiBod Bluemotion App Controlled Massager delivers a hit of clitoral stimulation right where to matters, and you hand the controls over to your other half.
For those inspired to try out control play by the hit book and movie franchise, 50 Shades of Grey, you’ll be pleased to hear you can get your hands on a range of 50-shades themed toys. The Fifty Shades Darker Principles Of Lust Romantic Couples Kit is the ideal introduction to control play for the curious. Complete with a blindfold, wrist restraints, and an assortment of toys, this is the ideal addition to a racy weekend away.
Don’t forget to read the book before you leave and text your favourite bits to your partner for a spot of inspiration. It’s a common known fact that women get turned on by their imagination, while men are much more into visual cues. So swapping saucy messages on the days running up to your weekend away is a great way to get the foreplay started.
A dirty weekend away isn’t about getting the job done like you might be accustomed to at home. It’s about exploring your bodies and the limits of stimulation. You don’t want to commit yourself to just one vibrator for the whole weekend, so why not pack an assortment for different scenarios. The Royal Rabbit Kit features a range of toys for clitoral stimulation and anal play – what more could you ask for?
Unlike when you’re at home, you can’t just reach into your bedside table for the essentials. Make sure you don’t forget anything that you wouldn’t want to call down to the hotel reception to ask for. Asking hotel reception for lube isn’t quite the same as asking for toothpaste!
Make sure you pack plenty of lube, condoms and intimate wash for you and your toys. You might always want to upgrade the hotel toiletries with your own bath oils and throw in a massage oil that you both love. The DONA Let Me Kiss You Massage Gift Set is the perfect travel-friendly massage oil set that will turn your hotel room into a sensual spa.
