Sex toys trends are all about the tech. When it comes to getting a buzz from your personal play, there’s an app for that! From robots to bluetooth to drones, the tech sex industry is on fire.
Let’s take a look at some exciting sex toy trends that you can get your hands on right now and look at some of the latest trends in the world of sex and pleasure. The AskMen sex 100 takes us through some products and trends that I would like to share with you right here and now.
Product: Tenga eggs
I’m delighted to see these on anyone’s list of ‘sex toys for 2017’, because although they’ve been around for a while, Tenga eggs are still not as widely known as they should be. To my mind, if you have a dick you should also have a go with a Tenga egg. They’re small, portable, textured masturbators that come with individual sachets of lube – so you’re good to go as soon as you get the delivery. They are lighter and easier to use than some of the larger masturbators like Fleshlight, so make a perfect addition to your ‘travel sex’ collection.
This is apparently a new trend, which would probably come as a surprise to some of the gentlemen I’ve had sex with. Edging – the practice of bringing yourself to just the ‘edge’ of orgasm, then stopping just before you come – is something I’ve always enjoyed watching guys do. It’s just hot seeing the moment right before they tip over the edge, and the build-up of frustration. If you’ve never tried it yourself, I’m told it’s very fun. I just can’t quite manage it myself because I am too impatient for orgasm.
Trend: Group sex
I don’t need to tell you much here other than that ‘group sex’ is apparently a new trend. I mean, surely group sex has been pretty popular for a while, no? I seem to remember the Romans having a fair amount of orgiastic fun. Still, if it’s getting more popular, that means there must be more people out there who are willing to dive into a group situation, so if orgies are on your bucket list then maybe have a go at making one happen in 2017.
Product: Dildo drone
OK, I may have teased you ever so slightly with this one – the dildo drone doesn’t actually exist. Yet. But imagine all the things you could do by strapping your favourite dildo onto a remote-controlled drone? You’ve effectively created a helicopter that can be fine-tuned to hump you from above.
Just make sure you keep your important bits away from the rotor blades. Eek.
You may have missed this campaign in 2016, but you’ll probably be seeing much more of it this year. As a response to social media platforms censoring female, but not male nipples, lots of people have been kicking up a storm under the ‘ #FreeTheNipple’ hashtag. And rightly so – why should one nipple be banned but another not? In response to the seemingly sexist and arbitrary rules, accounts like @genderless_nipples are trying to challenge the reasoning behind these rules by posting pictures of just nipples – with no way of telling whether the nipple belongs to a guy or a girl. Excellent work, and not just because it’s a great excuse to look at a wide variety of nipples. Want to get your nipples out in 2017? Pick up some lovely lingerie, or simply strip it all off. Be careful where you post the pics though…
Trend: Butt stuff
I’ve saved my favourite for last, although you can check out everything in the top sex 100 here. ‘Butt stuff’ comes in at number 12 on the list, and it very much deserves to be at the top. Not only because butt stuff (whether it’s prostate massage, butt plugs, pegging or anything else) is fun, but also because I think more people are becoming comfortable exploring their own anal desires. With each year that goes by, more people find my sex blog by searching ‘butt plug tips’ or ‘how do I do anal?’, and I think that’s only going to continue. So if you haven’t tried it yet but you’re tempted, go pick up a slim ‘starter’ butt plug and get 2017 off to a… umm… cracking start.
Sorry. I just couldn’t resist a butt pun.
