There are plenty of ways to spice things up in bed, like getting new sex toys or trying different techniques. But one method we don't always talk about is temperature play — and one easy way to engage in that is through sex toys that change temperature.
A word to the wise: While most toys can be refrigerated, not all can be microwaved, so your best bet is to heat them up in warm water. You can also get a product like Warm that you put toys inside to warm them up, Paula Pana, co-founder of Peep Show Toys, tells Bustle. If you use them internally, though, they'll probably heat up on their own. Glass toys can shatter if they're exposed to drastic changes in air temperature, so it's probably safer to cool them down in cold water than it is to refrigerate them.
"Especially when using a toy with or on a partner that has been warmed or cooled, ensure that you (and your partner) touch the product with your hand before using it on more sensitive areas," Pana advises. "Everyone’s tolerance for temperature changes are different, and just as with any type of sexual activity, consent and communication are crucial."
Here are a few toys to try if you want to experiment with temperature.

As its design would suggest, this toy is chilly, but it also heats up when it comes into contact with your body or other hot materials. It's also got ridges for an unusual sensation in your body. It's quirky for sure, but sometimes, you need something in your drawer beyond the standard rabbit or bullet vibrator.
