Beyond Viagra: Options For Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction

What are our greatest fears? Public Speaking? Dancing? Flying? For many men, the answer is Erectile Dysfunction. In fact, a recent poll found that the average man fears ED problems more than “cancer and death.”

This isn’t without good reason – with over 18 million men in the United States affected by ED, we’re in the midst of a impotence epidemic.

Before panic sets in, it’s important to remember that having the occasional disappointing sexual experience is perfectly normal and occasional symptoms of ED are not usually a cause for concern.

For mild ED, the answer can be as simple as taking a pill your Doctor prescribes. But, before you go reaching for those “little blue pills”  here’s a common-sense guide for non-surgical, drug-free solutions for taking control of your sex life:

Cock Rings: Your First Line of Defense

Penis Ring

When it comes to occasional performance issues the Cock Ring reigns supreme. The reason? Circulation.

The erectile process is all about blood flow. During arousal the blood vessels carry blood to the penis, making it full and engorged.

The real problem is when the blood flows back out of the penis once you’ve achieved your erection.

Cock Rings act like a trap door, keeping the blood in the corpora cavernosa, allowing for sustained erections. Think of it like a tourniquet (for your dick.)

Simple to wear, Cock Rings are worn around the base of the penis, but they can also be worn around the penis and the balls or worn just behind the glans (the head) of the penis.

And, they aren’t solely used for ED. They can also be used to heighten sensation, enhance appearance, and amplify orgasms. Sounds good to us!

Penis Pumps: Harder, Thicker, LONGER.

Penis pump

Let’s start with a hard truth: Erectile Dysfunction sucks and so do vacuum pumps.

But, before you write them off as a novelty or the source of an Austin Powers joke, you should know that Penis Pumps are a safe and incredibly effective option for restoring penile function.

The reason for this is simple suction: Penis pumps work by creating a vacuum inside a cylinder. As you pump, air is drawn out of the chamber, causing the penis to engorge and harden as more blood flows to the area.

Still on the fence? Here’s 3 great reasons for pumping up: With practice and correct use, Penis Pumps can give most men with mild ED an erection sufficient for sex.

Secondly, the overall cost is lower than many other treatment options. And last but not least – they can temporarily increase your penis size.

During the pumping process, you’ll force more blood than normal to the penis. For some men, this means getting a bigger, harder erection than normal. The jury is still out on long-term benefits, but what man doesn’t want to “get swole” when the time is right?

 Penis Extenders and Strap-Ons: Kind of a big deal. 

Male Strap-On

If cock rings, pumps and pills don’t work, don’t hang up your spurs just yet. Remember, making love doesn’t always have to mean penetration and there are great alternatives that take the focus off your penis like oral sex, manual stimulation and sex toys.

You can also get back in the action of good ol’ fashioned intercourse with the help of an Extension or a Male Strap-On. So what’s the difference between the two?

For starters, Penis Extensions are primarily designed to augment length and girth.

The Pro’s: Comfort! Made from soft materials that stretch over an erect or semi-erect penis, they’re textured internally and externally to create more stimulation for both partners during sex.

The Con’s: While Penis Extenders are perfect for men who experience occasional performance hiccups, they don’t possess the rigidity to allow a flaccid penis fit inside them during intercourse.

Unlike a penis sleeve, a Male Strap-On is more like a firm, hollow dildo, making suitable for men with severe ED.

The Pro’s: No erection required! And because they are usually designed with adjustable straps they stay on securely – even with deep thrusting.

The Cons: Reduced sensation for the wearer. And, because Hollow Strap-Ons have to be thick enough to accommodate the average penis on the inside, they tend to be far thicker on the outside.

No matter what option you choose, have fun with it! And once you’ve tried sex toys for erectile dysfunction and still struggle with it, it may be time to make an appointment with your doctor.

ED could be a sign of a more serious physical condition that requires medical treatment, such as heart disease or diabetes.

Talk with your doctor about possible underlying causes and what your options are!

Travel Hacks for Flying with Sex Toys

Sex Toy Travel Hacks

Want to take your sex life from coach to first class? Travel is a great aphrodisiac. According to a study by the U.S Travel Association, “28% of couples say their sex life improved after their trip together and 40% say travel permanently improved their sex life.”

But before you pack your bags – don’t overlook those other necessities that will guarantee hotter R and R: Sex toys!

Here are a few helpful tips for flying under the radar with sex toys:

Carrying On Correctly: Keep it short and sweet. According to TSA, it’s perfectly legal to travel with sex toys in your carry-on baggage as long as they are 7 Inches or shorter. (Don’t fret, size queens. There is no length limit on checked bags.)

Baggage Handler Phobic? Take a deep breath and remind yourself that your sex toy is not the first one TSA has ever seen. And, try keeping all your toys together in one compartment or sealed bag (instead of buried throughout your luggage) so TSA doesn’t have to take your entire suitcase apart to see what’s in it.

Keeping it on the down-low: There are a variety of travel-proof adult toys available that are small, discreet, and won’t raise eyebrows in your carry-on luggage. Brands like Jimmyjane, LELO and VeDo offer rechargeable vibrators with travel-lock features that will prevent your toy from accidentally engaging in your purse or luggage.

Batteries: Remember – Airport security really isn’t concerned with your battery-operated friends. They are, however, very interested in bombs, which can also vibrate.

That means, ALWAYS remove the batteries from your electronic devices before packing them.

Instant Atmosphere: Massage Candles create a sensual effect in musty hotel rooms and produce a lukewarm massage oil that’s perfect for sensual rubdowns.

Erotic Restraints: There’s no better time to get your kink on than while you’re on vacation – just avoid the heavy metal handcuffs. Sportsheets makes great soft bondage gear that packs discreetly in your suitcase.

Lubricants: Don’t leave home without them since all that hot hotel sex can mean holiday chafing. And if you plan on getting busy in a pool, hot tub or ocean, silicone lubricants are your best bet since they stay put under water.

The 3-1-1 Rule: Speaking of lubricants, you are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, massage oils, gels, creams in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces/100 milliliters or less (like our favorite Pjur Original Bodyglide. )

If you’re checking your lubricants, there is no limit. Just make sure to keep them stored in a watertight case or zip lock bag to avoid messy spills during transit.

Start trippin! If you’re still worried about bringing along your sex toys a fool-proof (albeit more expensive) method for transporting your sex toys to your desired destination is to ship them via Federal Express or UPS.  Simply call ahead to inform your hotel that you’re expecting a package and ask them to hold it for your arrival.

What’s YOUR safeword?


Ready to go beyond vanilla sex? Wave that freak flag high, my friends. But before we welcome you to the dark side – keep in mind that there’s far more to learning the ropes of BDSM than mastering a clove hitch knot. Setting up a safe and successful bondage scene requires planning, communication, patience, and above all, a good safeword.

Simply put, a safeword declares your limits. And, because D/S relationships are based on trust, that safeword should be prearranged, distinct and absolutely sacred.

According to the BDSM dating app Whiplr, the top 3 most popular safewords are “Pineapple, banana, and orange” but you can always choose whatever phrase or word you find meaningful for yourself.

Here’s a few safeword guidelines:

1. Dear Subs, we understand making a decision can be hard. That said, we ask that you just keep your safeword SIMPLE. If you can’t say it clearly with a ball gag in your mouth- don’t say it at all. Besides, it’s a bondage scene (not your blog) and nobody wants to listen to you try to grunt out a Shakespearean couplet while breathing heavily.

2. Dear Masters, let’s say your sub utters a ridiculous safeword like “Nickelback.” Let’s say you’re enjoying the scene and not quite ready to yield control. Listen carefully because we’re about to drop some knowledge:

Nickelback is a terrible band and CONSENT IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. Once the safeword is uttered the game stops and you’ll need to silence your lambs at a later date.

3. Better to keep one trusted safeword instead of changing one with every scene. In the heat of the moment accidents can happen and you don’t want to confuse yourself or your Dom. As Brad Hamilton says in Fast Times, “Learn it. Know it. Live it.”

4.  Because hoods and gags can make speech difficult, you can also agree on a non-verbal cue – like holding up a certain number of fingers. Some players will hold an object (like a bell or handkerchief) and drop it as a signal.

Once your safeword is selected you’ll be far better prepared to relax and enjoy your session.

Looking for a D/S shop in Austin, Texas? Visit us at Tabu Lingerie – 9070 Research Blvd, 204A where we carry an extensive line of leather collars, restraints and adult toys. (And we promise we won’t laugh at your safeword.)

Set the stage with Clubwear!

austin-clubwearPaging Austin Entertainers: If you strut your stuff at Gentlemen’s Clubs like Expose, Palazio, Perfect 10 or the Yellow Rose then you already know that it’s not just how you look after you strip down- but HOW you strip that captivates the customers.

Every dancer has that one “lucky” outfit that makes them feel beautiful and bankable – but luck really has nothing to do with it. Presentation and the right clubwear is crucial for setting the scene and creating the ultimate fantasy.

Carefully choosing the right exotic dance wardrobe that accents your unique body type and personality can help you stand out at your club and even determine your future income potential and success as an exotic dancer!

What type of impression do you want to make? Seduction comes in many forms, so let’s take a look at a few different dancewear styles that will help you define your onstage persona:

1. Lingerie

lingerie for dancers


More than meets the eye! Do you like to keep your look classy, romantic and feminine? Or, do you simply prefer retro glamour to showy lycra clubwear? You can’t go wrong with lingerie! Think lace, ribbons, frills, sheer stockings and garters to create an elegantly different and timeless kind of sex appeal. Tabu Lingerie is a great source for popular lingerie lines like Cosabella, Mapale, Escante, Coquette, Shirley and more.

2. Club Dresses

Dress to impress: Regardless of personal style, every exotic dancer should own an assortment of flattering dresses to stand out in a sea of beautiful women! Club dresses can range from flirty to formal, long to short, but they are always alluring and skin tight. The best club dresses always leave something to the imagination and will keep your customers wondering what’s underneath. At Tabu Lingerie, we feature a unique variety of sophisticated dresses that will have you owning the VIP room.

3. Mix-&-Match Dancewear Separates


Skin to win! The most basic and inexpensive category in the dancewear genre, a thong, booty shorts and a halter or triangle top is every dancer’s “starter pack.” That said, not all dance separates are made the same! That cheap dancewear deal might seem like a great investment at the time, but a faded or stretched-out outfit can quickly distract from your overall look. When it comes to clubwear, we trust brands like Body Zone and Mapale for quality fabrics and a great fit.
