The best booty calls might be spontaneous practically by definition, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think ahead a bit. A little preparation goes a long way toward making sure both of you have the time of your life and doing it right is as easy as grabbing a few choice items on your way out the door. Make sure the following are always on your list.

Plenty of Protection

Whether you’re currently getting busy with the same sex buddy every time or have been setting Tinder on fire with a series of one-night stands, protection should be essential as opposed to just an option. You never want to simply assume that your partner will take care of things though.

Always having condoms close at hand is the best way to give yourself the peace of mind you deserve. That way you know for a fact that you’re protected, even if your evening finds you getting busy more than once. Showing up with protection of your own shows your partner that you take safety seriously as well.

Some Fresh-Makers

Even if you have enough advance booty call notice to grab a shower beforehand, sometimes you still want a way to freshen up right before you get up close and personal with your date. A packet of refreshing body wipes can be a real lifesaver if you decide to go out dancing before getting down to business or on sultry evenings that are a little too warm for total comfort.

The same goes for your breath. Stashing a travel-sized bottle of mouthwash or a tin of breath mints in your purse lets you get kissing fresh in a flash. Plus, a minty fresh mouth brings some interesting sensations to the table if you decide to treat your partner to a little oral.

Your Favorite Lube

Thinking lube is strictly for emergency use is a total rookie move. You don’t need to have issues getting or staying wet for it to be a total hook-up must. Wetter is pretty much always better when it comes to intensely orgasmic sensations. Using lube can ensure your condoms stay in place by making extra sure things are slick enough as well.

And don’t be afraid to get a little adventurous with your lubes if you’re game. There are warming and cooling lubes on the market that let you explore different sensations together. Try flavored lubes to make oral play extra sweet. There are even lubes you can try that double as massage lotions.

Partner-Friendly Sex Toys

Vibrators and other sex toys are good for more than treating yourself to a quick orgasm when you’re flying solo for the evening. If you’ve never shared the good vibrations with a partner, you might want to think about changing that sometime soon. A hot booty call is a perfect occasion, so be sure to grab your favorite partner-friendly option on your way out the door.

Vibrations can stimulate anyone’s sweet spots regardless of gender or anatomy, so grabbing your go-to solo toy is fine in a pinch. However, it’s worth noting that not everyone is comfortable with insertable toys or toys that are representational. A versatile vibrator option – like any toy in the FemmeFunn Buddies collection – is a perfect fit no matter what someone’s preference. Buddies lend themselves well to a variety of different positions and scenarios as well.

Grooming Essentials

Although not every booty call turns into an all-nighter that stops when the sun comes up, it’s never a bad idea to go prepared for impromptu sleepovers just in case. If you’d like to bring a complete change of clothes, that’s an option for sure. If you’re not bringing a complete overnight bag though, you can stash an extra pair of panties in your purse to change into if you won’t be going home until morning.

Bring along a small comb or a mini hairbrush as well. Either of those things makes getting rid of sex hair in a jiffy super-simple. A ponytail holder or a barrette might not be a bad idea either just in case you’re having more trouble than usual getting rid of telltale bed head.

Something to Nosh On

This may not be essential for a booty call, so much as it’s simply a good idea. You never know when the munchies might strike. You may also need to keep your strength up in the event the two of you never quite make it to dinner. Go for something quick and nutritious that won’t wreck your breath. Make sure it’s tasty as well though just in case you want to share it with your lover as a pick-me-up in between sex sessions.

Of course, these are just a few of the possible items that make clever choices to grab on your way out the door to get some. What are some of your go-to’s?
