'Use ribbed condoms' on sex toys

Everyone knows that when relationships become a bit lacklustre in the bedroom department, throwing in a sex toy here and there can definitely spice things up once more.

What they may not have considered, however, is using ribbed condoms - or indeed any other option, be it Durex, glow in the dark or flavoured condoms - on rubber, latex or jelly toys, a course of action recommended by Women24.

"If the sheen has left your jelly toy and the surface has gone dull, it's time to throw it out or start using it with condoms," came the helpful suggestion.

In fact, this could well prove to be a fantastic idea, not least because it extends the life of naughty accessories - apparently, it minimises the amount of time spent cleaning up after fun between the sheets, leaving more precious seconds free to bask in the afterglow.

Prophylactics themselves, however, could reignite the passion as well, with Amy Keyishian, blogger with the Stir, recently suggesting that Trojan's Magnum Twister's texture will stimulate both partners.
