Love Lounge – Cheeky gifts for my girlfriend…

Mik and Emily,

Any cheeky/sexy gifts you’d recommend for my girlfriend? She’s a wheelchair user, and we are looking to spice things up a bit in the bedroom.




Hi there,

Thanks so much for writing in to us, great question!

Questions around gifts and intimacy are quite tough to answer because everyone’s into something different, aren’t they? And what I like and recommend might not be your cup of tea at all. But, this is what we are here for and I’ll absolutely do my best 😊

Experimenting in the bedroom is always a positive, in my opinion. If you don’t like something, you never have to do it again, but at least you know what your tastes are!! As it’s coming up to Christmas, how about buying your girlfriend something a bit more daring and unusual – if you’ve never used sex toys together before, how about a bullet vibrator to go along with some gorgeous, lacy underwear? If new positions are something you’d like to try, companies like Liberator sell sex furniture to make that easier for everyone, or perhaps your girl would like to be dolled up and treated to a sexy photoshoot? It’s win-win; she gets pampered for the day, and you get some souvenirs to look at whenever you fancy!

Hope this helps, and have a great festive season!

Love Lounge – Feeling lonely around christmas

By | Disability, Emily Yates, The Love Lounge | No Comments

Hi Love Lounge,

It’s coming up to Christmas and, I’ll be honest, I’m feeling a bit lonely without anyone to share the festive season with. Have you got any advice for me?





Hi Nic,

Sorry to hear that you’re feeling a bit low. It’s not unusual in cold, darker weather, and it can be particularly difficult to stay upbeat when you see other happy couples and wish you had a bit of romance in your own life. But, you know what? This festive season shouldn’t just be about feeling loved up with a significant other; it’s all about family and friends too. You don’t need a partner to treat yourself to a spa day or go to the Christmas market in your area – see what your pals are doing and ask them to join you! Chances are, if they’re single, they’ll be feeling a bit under the weather too, and might be glad of some company. It’s sounds cliché, but it’s so true that love comes around when you least expect it (and often when you’re enjoying yourself without it!) so don’t be afraid to wrap up warm, get out there and have a good time, whether that with a lover, a best friend or some close family members!

Have a lovely festive season, enjoy, and try your best to be grateful for those around you (easier said than done when you’re not at your best, I know).
