Save Bloomie’s for another day -- we’re talking about checking out a sex store. “Doing something unexpected can keep us mentally, physically and emotionally on our toes and can help things to feel ‘new,’” says Debby Herbenick, Ph.D, a research scientist at Indiana University and author of Because It Feels Good. Sex toy shopping doesn’t have to be creepy either -- visit a couple-friendly store out or check out Babeland and Good Vibrations online, especially if you’re not ready to broadcast your dress-up and whip fetishes to the neighborhood. Either way, browsing through the options -- and fantasizing what you’ll be doing with them later on -- acts as extended foreplay. And if you’re nervous about any “Mommy, what’s this?” questions, we recommend the inconspicuous “I Rub My Duckie” or lipstick massagers -- just make sure you keep them out of arm’s reach.
