While sex aids seem cold, strange and scary, the idea of bedroom toys has a curious appeal. Which is why Blythe Heart started making small, brightly coloured fluffy balls. A cage-like sphere covered in red, pink or white fluff, these are silly, silky, slightly kinky toys to adorn ladies' beds. Roll them around when things get frisky. Play with them (restlessly) when he's out of town. Or throw them at him (tempestuously) when losing an argument you think you should win.

Blythe Heart Fluffies cost pounds 46.50 at Graham and Green, 7 Elgin Cres W11 (071-727 4594) Mon-Fri 10am-6pm Sat 9.30am-6pm Sun 11am-5pm
