The Fantasy Box - A Little Bit Of Seduction

A recent survey has revealed that one in three couples can't remember the last time they were intimate and one in ten admitting they are no longer intimate at all.

This study by The Fantasy Box shows how much us British are neglecting our sexual needs. Younger people citing work pressures are the cause of a lower libido whilst the older generation cite health concerns.

Over a third also admitted to hiding their sexual fantasies from their current partner, stating that they just don’t talk about sex anymore.

If you are one of these people or just want to add a little spice into your life, The Fantasy Box may be just what you are looking for. Mariah Byrne, the co-founder of The Fantasy Box created the company with her partner Chris with one mission - to bring back people's happy sex lives. This luxury service helps people explore in a safe, stress free and fun environment.




With this service you have four main theme in which to explore - Sensual, Control, Costume and Playful, and also a Honeymoon gift box. If you're looking to explore multiple types of play, the subscription option is your best bet because they include all the theme categories. One off boxes are also available to buy if you want a taster of the service. A classic introduction box is a good start if you want to try it out.


So I was sent the classic introduction box to try.


The introduction box priced at £49 contained the following items above (contents may vary):- A sexy black babydoll, a G string, a love mask, a soy candle, lubricant, a massager - we all know what I mean by this, (with batteries), and role playing cards. Everything was discreetly packaged in a stylish red box and in brown cardboard packaging. The neighbours would never know what fun you will be having!




The box comes with instructions, and the first box is all about communication and anticipation. Quote, "Your night will contain two main parts - a romantic dinner (complete with built-in sex talk) and a role playing game.", and then as they say the fun begins.


The Survey And The Scenario

With the box comes a survey for him and a survey for her. Before the 'date night' the idea is to complete the surveys then plan a time to discuss them, when you are relaxed, perhaps over dinner or a glass of wine. It is important here to discuss in particular any surprises or elaborate on any areas of interest. They recommend not judging or getting offended and going into this with an open mind. Even if you think you know your partners sexual preferences they suggest that you should not skip this part, as you could be surprised. You then discuss the best sex you remember having together and what specifically worked for you - in detail...





Then onto the Leader and Follower cards. This fantasy is about anticipation. I won't go into detail here to keep the surprise if you buy the box but the cards suggest a gentle submissive/control scenario. Ground rules are discussed and a 'safe word' which is an excellent idea. You can always switch the roles later in the month too. An interesting and thrilling game that can be as mild or as racy as you make it.

Exploring The Box

The box has a variety of items to use with or without the scenario. The quality of the items I was impressed with, for example the babydoll was soft yet stretchy. When you order you can choose the size required, and they do plus sizes too, which is great for all us curvy ladies. The G string was the right size and made of the same material as the babydoll.

The Sliquid organics natural lubricant felt silky to the touch and is glycerine and paraben free. A high quality water based lubricant - it did the job as they say, oh yes indeed!

The mask is a satin eyemask, made well. The only thing I would say is that it did have a little gap at the bottom, which to me defeats the point of it. Maybe I am being too picky here though.

The waterproof massager called Le Reve has three speeds, a silky soft coating and is gently curved. It wasn't intimidating either, no large male appendages to contend with!  Not all massagers are waterproof so this was a plus point, to be able to take this into the bath or shower if you wanted to.

The candle smelt sweet and fruity with orange undertones and it is infused with pheromones to enhance sexual arousal. 

As well as one off boxes, you can also buy 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions which would make a nice Christmas gift for your partner.

In conclusion I really liked the box, and at £49 I think it's decent value for what you get. The survey really makes you think about your answers and discussing these with your partner can make for an interesting conversation and really open up about sex. It certainly added a bit of spice into our evening, and after 15 years of being together we need all the spice we can get ;)

  5. That is very interesting to read the stats. Every married couple will go through highs and lows in their sexual life. The key is to keep trying, being intimate is so much more than sex and very important to having a healthy marriage (in my opinion). I personally think the box is a little pricey but in comparison with buying all the items you listed in store at Ann Summers it's pretty much a bargain. Love the honeymoon box idea. That would make a great hen party gift. Cheers for sharing

    1. Yes, as you say if you buy the items separately it would be much more expensive.

  6. I am quite shocked at the stat results, I didn't think it would be that bad. I think this is a great box for spicing things up a bit.

  10. I think you did really well with this post considering the nature of it, very classy and a great review.
    I would definitely try this although I do think I might find certain aspects a bit cringe-worthy but that's just me (the role playing cards I think just aren't my style)!

    1. Thank you for the kind comments. I think other boxes do not have the role play element involved.

  11. this is a great idea for a box, much better than your average make up box for sure!

  12. I too have just received this to review, and to be honest, I really can't wait to try it out

  13. Now this does look interesting, I've never heard of these boxes before but they do look like a good idea x

  14. I'm not sure I'd pay £49 for this. I can see the idea behind it, but hate the fact that there's a scantily clad outfit for the female - as though women have to dress this way to be 'sexy' I also think the survey idea and discussion is a tad unromantic taking the spontaneity away?

    1. Maybe they could do the box without the underwear perhaps? I think the survey is a good idea as it allows you to discuss your thoughts and feelings about sex and sometimes especially in a new relationship this may not have happened in depth. Also in a long term relationship you may want to try new things and this is a way of discussing that.

  15. Great review. Sounds very kinky, lol. However, it is a great box.

  16. This look great fun, but I'm a pervert! I like the idea of Leader and Follower cards, what a great way to spice up anyone's sexy time!
    I'm surprised 3 out of 10 couple cant remember when they last had sex, maybe this would really help. I'm unsure about the string tong.
    Fab post, thanks for sharing x
