When it comes to Christmas, there's nothing better than an advent calendar to perk you up every day of December. One particular kind that will make you extra perky this festive season is a sex toy advent calendar - and they really are a treat.
While some may still be satisfied with a classic chocolate advent calendar, the modern advent is all about miniature booze, beauty samples and even crisp and snack advent calendars. From chocolate to 24 days of tea bags. Even our favourite advent calendars of beauty, there's something for everyone now. One thing you may have not heard of though (but definitely do not want to miss) are these sensual sex toy advent calendars on the market.
That's right. Sex toy. Advent calendars. Christmas really has come early...

What is post-orgasm glow?
This may come as no surprise, but did you know that having healthy sex and regular orgasms has a huge number of health benefits? Including better sleep, less stress, reduced anxiety, lifted mood and even a longer life span, to name a few.
By lowering the stress hormone cortisol and releasing hormones such as oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, the effect of orgasm is why we often have a post-orgasm glow. When your blood vessels start to dilate, you also get a rush of collagen. This gives your skin that flushed and youthful appearance - making it the perfect time to freshen up before the festive party season.
