Information & Advice
For many women, says Julie Peasgood, the idea of using products dedicated to your intimate pleasure can seem a bit intimidating, or perhaps even unnecessary.
Actress and author Julie writes about sex and relationships for a number of national newspapers. She believes more and more women are discovering it's possible to enhance their love lives.
"Pleasure products can be a new and welcome addition to your world," she says.
That was why Julie helped to create the Swoon range - a tasteful, female-friendly range designed to appeal to everyone, including first-timers.
"The Swoon collection is suitable for anyone wanting to improve their intimate pleasure time," she says.
Swoon products, says Julie, are just as satisfying to handle and look at as they are to use.
"If you've never Swooned before, you have nothing to fear," says Julie. "Each of the products in the Swoon range comes with full instructions and tips on how to get the most from your purchase." What's more, they're made from the purest materials and ingredients.
But what if you want to introduce the wonderful world of Swoon to a partner who's not so sure? You are not alone! But pleasure products and relationships can go hand in hand - in fact many couples find their relationships and sex lives significantly improve.
If you'd like to broach the subject, Julie suggests you:
"If you'd like to take things a stage further, a massage provides the perfect way of connecting physically and emotionally before getting more intimate," says Julie. "Creating the right ambience really helps, so set the mood by lighting an aromatic massage candle for a romantic atmosphere. Burning Desire is deliciously scented and is perfect for treating your lover to a sensuous massage with the skin-safe emollient it creates. Alternatively, reach for Massage in a Bottle and stimulate their senses with this exquisitely fragrant, moisturising oil."
When you're ready, try one of the Swoon personal massagers on each other. Shimmy is a good one to start with - it's small but powerful. If you find it stimulates a particular pleasure point for either of you, let your partner know, so it's something you can develop together.
You can enhance lovemaking with a personal lubricant such as Smooth Mover. And if you want to heighten your desire, a small amount of Drive me Balmy Intimate Arousal Balm, strategically applied, will boost your arousal and intensify sensation.
"Swoon is a range created by a woman for women," says Julie. "I'm really excited by it - I hope you will be too!"
