Lots of couples want to explore new ways to excite their partner and stimulate each other's senses to their full potential during foreplay, but when you've already exhausted the tools Mother Nature gave you, it can be difficult to know what to move on to next.
Experimenting with sensory play such as erotic massage, temperature play and light spanking is a great way to instantly turn up the heat on your pleasure. If you're brand new to this kind of play, you might like to start with something a little less intimidating, like a feather tickler.
Unlike other types of sensory exploration which can require a certain level of skill or confidence, feather ticklers are the perfect balance between invitingly soft and excitingly new, whilst still being wonderfully easy to use.
Above: Not sure why you should try a feather tickler? Our resident bondage-expert, Jess Wilde, runs through her top 5 reasons to tickle as you tease in this video.

Above: Still not really sure what urethral sounding is, or why people want to do it? Let Jess Wilde give you the facts in this video guide.
