With a love interest, socks just won’t cut it when it comes to holiday gift-giving; it’s nice to give a present that shows you consider them a sex god/goddess. But donâ€™t give something thatâ€™s obviously a present to yourself, like polyester butt-floss lingerie that may look good to you but feels terribly uncomfortable to the person youâ€™re supposed to be pampering. (Make requests for that kind of thing on your own birthday.) And make sure the present youâ€™re giving is appropriate to the person: A leather whip for the vegan pacifist in your life or PVC underwear for a beloved environmentalist probably wonâ€™t be well received (you may as well get them fruitcake while youâ€™re at it). So here’s a quick guide to sexy gifts for specific types:
For the art appreciator: The beautiful hardcover photography book LoveSong: The Erotic Photographs of Arnold Skolnick.
For the sensualist: Jimmyjane.com‘s pristine collection of ergonomic massage accessories all in classic white.
For the hippie feminist: Anything — jewelry, art, pillows — that celebrates the female form from the Vulva Love Lovely store on Etsy.com.
For the quiet kinkster: Lelo.com’s beautiful new line of sensual accessories, including deep red suede cuffs and silk blindfolds.
For the nature lover: TheBodyDeli.com‘s extensive line of body products that incorporate raw, fresh, natural and organic ingredients, including yogurt, amino acids, fresh fruit and vegetables, and all-natural plant oils.
For the comedian: A copy of the new sex manual parody Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk, available at most book stores.
For the person who has everything: The $7000 chess set that doubles as 32 different love toys designed by Aruliden for Kiki de Montparnasse.
