Mistress Maeve: Your guide to love and lust...


Published March 28, 2012 at 11:42 a.m.

Dear Mistress,

My wife and I occasionally use her vibrator during foreplay. I know it’s fun for her, but I’m wondering if there are sex toys designed for couples? My wife has used her vibrator to tease me before, but I wouldn’t say it’s a mind-blowing experience. What could we use together?

Dear Two’s Company,

Kudos to you for transforming your wife’s vibrator from a solitary sex aid to a partners’ paradise. Sadly enough, some men shy away from using sex toys, scared that their partners might find deeper satisfaction from an inanimate object. Boys, let me assure you, there are no lasting substitutes for the touch of a living, breathing human.

The sex toy industry has come a long way in recent years. Along with a bevy of innovative toys for individuals, straight couples can now enjoy toys made specifically for intercourse. I recommend starting with either the Tiani by Lelo or the We-Vibe by Standard Innovation Corporation. These flexible vibrators are designed to slide into the vagina at the same time as the penis, while also stimulating the clitoris — imagine a letter “L” with the bottom part inserted into the vagina and the top part resting against the clitoris. (Or, better yet, just Google it for a visual.) Believe it or not, there’s plenty of room in the vaginal canal for both the penis and the vibe, creating sensation overload for both the man and woman. These toys are also easy to clean and rechargeable (like your cellphone). The latest version of the Tiani and We-Vibe boast multiple vibration settings and a remote control for hands-free bumpin’ and grindin’.

Above all else, remember that introducing new sex toys into the fold should be fun and easy. If you keep an open mind and sense of humor, you just might find life is sweeter with a vibrator built for two.

Double Trouble,


Speaking of Sex,
