Gift Guide, Kink Friendly2 Min Read
Kinks and fetishes play in the world of taboo — but ironically, they’re becoming more and more mainstream.
Ultimately, this can be a good thing — as more people understand kinks, the stigma around them goes down, and understanding and curiosity grows in its place. It also means brands are catering to a wider appetite for sexual stimulation, making it easier for you to stock up on toys and accessories that titilate the senses and feel more than a little illicit. (Consent is always, always key though!)
Trying new toys and broadening your horizons? You might want to do so on a budget. For that, there’s Unbound, a woman-owned brand that provides a range of toys and accessories at accessible price points. People who are more seasoned when it comes to exploring their kinks can broaden their horizons with other brands, as well as a wider array of accessories.
Before exploring any kinks, be sure to talk to your partner about your boundaries and concerns — if you feel comfortable doing so, establishing a safe word prior to your sex session can be useful. Honor your feelings, and explore!
