Oh what fun we’ve had! 2021 brought with it even more curiosity and experimentation and we managed to get out a little bit more than last year which felt GREAT!

There have been educationals from the A-Z on the world of toys, enhancers and pleasure potions to bondage rope sessions, relationship coaching, book launches, TV series filming (watch this space!) and general fun and shenanigans of course! 

Never a dull moment

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my customers in-store this year. The kinds of discussions we’ve had about fetishes and the sharing of sultry experiences, moments and insights have sometimes left even me speechless (and of course entertained). Thank you for making it all so worthwhile!

What’s trending?

I’ve seen a much keener interest in exploring the previously unexplored, because, why not?!

I thank the pandemic for that. After all, we are here to do just that - EXPLORE.

It’s always interesting to see what’s been consumed, let’s take a look!

Sensory Play

2021 has delivered some interesting new contenders in the lubrication and massage space. A far more tactile and tasty experience! You like more intense lotions and potions like warming massage oils, stimulating and new flavoured lubes – A LOT!

Anal Play

Always a bit of a controversial topic which has been more deeply explored than ever before this year! Butt plug tails, anal plugs, cock ring prostate massage combo’s - you name it - you wanted it and tried it!

Kink (You have lots of it!)

Oh my, you’ve been spanked, restrained, caged and pinwheeled consistently well throughout the year. What a release and what an adventure!

Penis extender sets becoming ever more popular as well as anything that give our gents some much needed extra mileage. It’s not always easy to find what works for you, but where there’s a will there’s a way. Sometimes we just need to get out of our heads and enjoy extended sessions with our partners!

Bold Beginners

I’ve met with beginners of all ages (18 – 70), all of whom have the same question. Where on earth do I start? Some of my favourite conversations take place here. I love seeing customers new to the world of self pleasure and toys leave our realm feeling empowered and excited to start on their journey. If you don’t know where to start, please do get in touch!

You’re fun!

Anything to do with a remote or app controlled toy turns you on. These very clever toys have greatly helped in keeping the spark alive for many of our customers who have been separated during this time. For others, it’s the thrill of tech that keeps their love alive. Either which way, you’ve vibed to your favourite playlists, enjoyed some sneaky fun in public and maintained a much needed level of connectedness with your SOs. Nicely done!

Flying Solo

Singles, you’re so in charge! Clitoral stimulators remain a firm favourite again this year! The introduction of Tracy’s Dog to our catalogue has been as exciting for us as it has been for you. Note well, the fun doesn’t end here with more novel toys to enter this category very soon - we can’t wait!! Ladies, thank you for your feedback and please be careful when playing with these things in traffic 😉

The games you play…

If you can clone it, you will! Roll the dice and take a risk? Absolutely! You love your games and we love that about you!

In closing, I'll say this...

The past 2 years have by no means been an easy ride and as a result relational and performance issues have been top of mind. How to reconnect with our other halves, how to get more physical mileage out of our interactions – many of us are troubled by this.

I can see the effect that the stress of life has taken on many of my clients through this  pandemic and I am grateful to be in a position to help find a sustainable solution to the physical challenges faced wherever I possibly can.

As we now regroup and understand that there are parts of ourselves that will never be the same again, we look for our new ‘happy’ and where we stand with ourselves as well as how we relate to the world around us.

As 2021 draws to a close I can say with much certainty that you came, you saw and you conquered! This makes me smile. I thank you for your continued support of the Play With Me brand and wish you all that sets your heart, and pants, on fire in the year to come! Roll on 2022, it's going to be spectacular!


As always, be bold & stay playful!
