An Expert’s Guide To The Ultimate Sex Drawer

If there’s anyone who knows what's required for a good orgasm, it’s Nadia Deen. Co-founder of Intimology Institute, a platform offering advice for women on how to achieve peak self-pleasure, and a designer for countless sex toy brands, she's on a mission to shift the narrative around female masturbation. From toys to accessories, these are her bedroom essentials…

Fun Factory Tiger, €99.90

When I decided to move away from the traditional rabbit vibrator (i.e. dual stimulation toys), I knew I needed an internal toy with vibrations strong enough for me to feel it both internally and externally. This vibrator does just that, with the length, girth and firmness to hit all the right places.

Je Joue Classic Bullet Vibrator, £45

This bullet vibrator might be small, but it’s hugely powerful, with the deep, rumbly vibration that would put a larger toy to shame.

LELO Transformer, £85

Another great one to use with your partner, this toy is so versatile. It’s a rabbit, cock ring, anal toy, double-ended vibrator and G-spot stimulator in one.

LELO Massage Candle, £24.90

A massage candle can really set the scene. Use them to create an ambience and then pour the warm wax on your partner for a sensual massage. Made from all-natural ingredients, these candles are my favourite.

We Vibe Sync Under The Stars, £189

The beauty with most sex toys is that they can be used with a partner or solo – all you need is your imagination. When it comes to toys specific for couple use, I recommend anything from We-Vibe Connect – all their products come with a remote control and an app, so you can control from afar, great for long-distance.

Orgie Massage Oil, £27

This is my favourite massage oil – the smell is divine but not overpowering, and they leave your skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I’ve actually considered using mine as a regular body moisturiser it’s that good.

Satisfyer Traveler, £35.95

When it comes to clitoral toys, I tend to become over stimulated very easily, which is why suction toys suit me better. They sit over your clitoris and use airwaves and pressure for contactless stimulation. I love this one – it’s small, discreet and travel-friendly with a powerful suction.

AHH Forniocouture Fragaria Anal Stimulator, £520

This is on my wish list at the moment. I love anal toys as they’re brilliant for solo self-discovery as well as partnered play, just be sure to use a lube suitable for the job. Also remember that anything used for anal play needs to have a flared base, otherwise you’ll be making an embarrassing trip to A&E.

Fine Bone Prudence, £78

I’m also a big fan of non-vibrating dildos made from natural ingredients such as glass, metal and ceramics. The firmness is great for internal orgasms when teamed with a clitoral toy. This ceramic dildo is sustainable and made from natural body-safe materials.

System Jo Gelato Lube, £5.68 (was £6)

There’s no shame in using lube and I would recommend using it whether you’re playing alone or not. Water-based lube is a great all-rounder – I love the taste of Jo Gelato’s lubes, especially the tiramisu.

Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer, £169

A pelvic floor trainer has become an essential part of my weekly self-care routine. They’re brilliant as they not only lead to stronger control over your bladder but also better control and intensity of your internal orgasms. They’re also great to use while masturbating with a clitoral toy – practice squeezing against it to increase your chances of a G-spot orgasm.

Available here

HANX Condoms, from £4.99

When it comes to condoms, I really rate HANX. They’re biodegradable, vegan and cruelty-free – a win all-round. I also rate SKYN condoms, which are a technologically advanced, non-latex offering and use a special material proven to enhance stimulation.
