The Essentials for your Top Drawer...

Yes, Top Drawer Essentials is a store specifically geared to provide the essentials for your top drawer, but after a few questions, it's probably appropriate that we explain what we think those essentials actually are.

We believe in safe sex, solo sex, fun sex and better sex, and we'd like to think that our offerings support that belief. More to the point, we think that your top drawer has a list of essentials, some of which may be missing.

The Top Drawer Essentials

Safe sex. Sex between consenting adults is a great thing, regardless of your orientation, and we'd hate for complications to ruin a good thing. The threat of sexually transmitted infections (STI's) and unplanned pregnancy are real, and so it's surprising that condom use is on the decline in Australia. In much the same way, dams provide an effective barrier to STI's for use in oral sex.

Condoms should be in your top drawer. Male or female and whatever your orientation, if you are sexually active, condoms should not be optional. Even if you're in a long term relationship and contraception isn't a concern or is otherwise taken care of, condoms have a role to play as they can make cleanup a breeze if you use them as a cover for your toys.

Any oral could benefit from the availability (and use) of Dams.  In particular, if "risky" oral (such as rimming or anything involving oral/anal interaction) is on your list of favourites, or your bucket list, Dams should be in your top drawer. 

Lubrication, too, needs to be in your top drawer. To state the obvious, Lubrication is always a good idea, and not just if natural lubrication is inadequate. Aside from lessening the potential for injury to both men and women, it makes sex more comfortable for all, the potentially painful doable, and will also significantly reduce the potential for condom damage.

All lubricants for personal/intimate use should, of course, be body-safe. Water-based lubricant is safe for use with all toys, but it has a tendency (feature) of being easily washed off. If you are in a wet environment, such as a spa, or you don't want to need to keep re-applying, you might want to go for silicone-based which is super slick and slippery but requires soap and water to be removed. Because it is so slick, silicone-based might be a better safer bet for anal sex. Remember too that silicone-based lube is not suitable for all toys, particularly toys made of porous silicone.

Something for you. Why not?  If anyone understands your desires, it's you, so who better to recognise the benefit of something to enhance your sexual fulfilment.  So whether it's sex on your own or with someone else, you should have a toy, or toys, of your choosing in your top drawer.  A toy can make the world of difference in sex with a partner, either to get you there or keep you there.  

In much the same way, some kind of a masturbation aid should be considered essential.  Male or female, whatever your lean or orientation, there's toys to make your solo time better.  Your hand will fade into insignificance thereafter.

Something for your partner. As good as sex with a partner may be, the addition of toys can make it better and/or more fun.  Beyond the potential for things to be spiced up, if your partner's fulfilment is of interest, something for their benefit should find its place in your top drawer.  The beautiful thing is that through the use of toys or devices for their benefit, chances are that you will also reap the rewards.

Something to share.  Gone are the days when toys were definitively and exclusively for males or for females.  Now, we are wiser to the reality that some toys are not just just for one gender, but are in fact great for men and women, and some are just perfect to share. 

We hope this makes you glance at your top drawer.  Just saying.
