Whispering

To get you and your partner in the mood for a night of steamy sex, whispering into their ear is bound to give them goosebumps and leave them breathless.

Put your mouth close to their ear and gently whisper, telling them what you want to do to them and making dirty talk sexier than ever. By keeping your volume low, the intimacy of the experience is intensified and maximised, making your words just as powerful as your actions.

The sound of moaning during sex is a stimulus in itself, not only providing verbal cues, but getting you going as you get a kick out of witnessing your partner’s pleasure.

Scratching

Many of us love to introduce a little scratching under the sheets, displaying our passion and intensifying the skin on skin contact.
