5 Toys To Revolutionize Your Sex Life! Part 1

jess' article reviews Jun 07, 2017

When I first started working in the field of human sexuality, most of the toys on offer came in the form of exaggerated phalluses and animal-inspired vibes made of jelly. Fast forward to today and I’m thrilled to report that the adult toy industry has come along way. The variety and quality of products has vastly improved and many companies are investing heavily in research and development to ensure that their toys reflect the needs of their customers.

As a sexologist, I’m often asked to review toy prototypes and provide feedback (it’s a tough job, but somebody has got to to it!) and the companies I’ve worked with have been highly responsive to constructive criticism. From tech-enabled couples’ toys to products that focus as much on health as pleasure, it’s an exciting time in the adult industry.

There are thousands of toys, props and accoutrements on the market, but these are five that have revolutionized my sex life and those of my very happy...

3. Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel

You know how much I love lube! Sex is simply hotter with the addition of this sexy, slippery stuff and if you have reactive skin, Astroglide’s Sensitive Skin Gel may be just what the doctor ordered.

Try these sexy ways to apply lube to your lover:

  • Apply to your palm and then squeeze your hand in a fist allowing the lube to drip sensually over their most sensitive spots.
  • Blindfold them and use a soft-bristled makeup brush to create a sensational experience.
  • Roll a few drops over your lips and use your mouth as your applicator.
  • Apply with your fingertips and then breathe warm air over the wet spots.

4. Ben Wa Balls
These nifty devices have seen a resurgence of popularity since the release of the Fifty Shades trilogy and I really love the Scarlet Couture Glass Duo Balls.

You can use them to perform Kegel exercises as prescribed by your pelvic floor physiotherapist and they can be used for enhancing...

Zepeel: "Love At First Play"

dr. jess' news reviews Apr 12, 2017

Hi everyone, my name is Nicole! I’m just your average 23-year-old living in the ever-evolving city of Toronto. Not too long ago, I ended a rocky long-term relationship and set out on a path of self-discovery, new adventures and
for the first time, online dating. I was 18 years old when I started seeing my ex-boyfriend, so  I was excited and nervous to explore this whole new world (like Jasmine on the back of the magic carpet). I was told that there are plenty of fish in the sea - but Toronto seemed
more like an entire ocean of people each looking for different things.


I downloaded a bunch of apps like Bumble and Tinder, and spent hours agonizing about writing the best possible bio, choosing the most flattering photos, and throwing a dash of cute emojis here and there. Just like the opening of hunting season, I swiped right more times than I care to admit.

I’ve met some strange characters online: married men posing as newly single bachelors, the too good to...

Finding The Best Online Dating Site

Dating in in the digital age isn’t easy and neither is finding the right online dating site. There are many options out there that claim to be the best and to find you “true love,” but as most of you know, that’s not always the case. So, instead of wasting hours of your own time, Reviews.com, a company dedicated to conducting unbiased research, has looked into finding the best online dating sites out there. The last thing you want to do is be on an ineffective dating site that never pays out, so let’s see what they found…

They first rounded up all of the contenders, focusing on dating sites as opposed to apps and they looked for sites with a wide geographical net. Then they prioritized an active user base, looking through a web-traffic analytic company to see how many people are actually on each site . Then they scoured through user-reviews and even personally tested the finalists to get a hands-on feeling of each site.

Falling in Love Costs You Friends

expert advice reviews Nov 06, 2015

How does falling in love affect your relationship with your friends? Research suggests that your friend circle may shrink as your love blossoms!


Why do we lose friends when we fall in love? Is it healthy? What can we do about it?

"It can be common to lose friends when you fall in love for a few reasons. Often people throw themselves into the relationship and spend all their time with that person.  Friends may feel neglected and life suddenly becomes imbalanced. While this feels blissful at the time for those lovers, it is wise to try to resume some balance and to keep in touch with your loved ones, supports and regular commitments.  I tell my clients that the right person will blend with their existing life so they should try and keep many of their regular pursuits going early on.

Also, at times friends may feel jealous when you fall in love if they are single. They may feel left behind, lonely or envious.  It can be helpful to be sensitive to...

A Newbie's First Experience at Desire Resorts

As you probably know, I visit Desire Resorts in Mexico several times per year to facilitate couples workshops, host book signings and recharge my batteries to the sound of the ocean breeze. And if you've ever heard me speak, you know that I always return with a handful of stories, anecdotes and lessons (like The Claudia AKA The Goddess) drawn from my interactions with the couples I meet at the resorts. Not surprisingly, I receive more questions about Desire Resorts than almost any other topic (e.g. What happens there? Is everyone naked? Do you get naked? Do you see people having sex in public?), so I've recruited a "newbie" guest to answer some questions about her first visit.

Julie, a Canadian Public Relations specialist, was thrilled to share her insights and experience.

Jess: What prompted you to visit Desire Resorts in the first place?

Julie: I have always been a very open-minded, sexual being. It took years as an adult to discover who I am, and to...
