“Criminal Copulation”


Not too out of the ordinary, handcuffs (or perhaps some zip-ties) can spice up anyone’s night. A little take-charge attitude is sure to be a major turn on for your significant other. With Spencer’s,online shops, or even an actual set of cuffs, the possibilities are endless.

“Going Blind”

“Frosty Foreplay”

“Going Down”

No need to be a NASCAR fanatic to have loved the car-chase scene closely followed by Ana taking charge in the parking garage. Don’t worry–we aren’t recommending risky road… ahem… behavior. Instead focus on the road, park, and then focus on each other.

“Vanilla Sex”

But hey, what do I know?” Never underestimate the classics.
