It’s been a crazy few weeks; Kids off school, a huge wave of orders to make and the heat is definitely causing not one but a few headaches for us as it slows down the making process. However it is now time to take a well deserve family break for our small team and spend some time just relaxing and having fun. It sounds almost impossible with that amount of work we have at the minute but we hope you’ll understand and be patient to wait a little bit longer for your parcels.
Our holiday break starts on the 18th August – 1st September during this time we won’t be replying to any emails and messages, we would like to just switch off and recharge our batteries to bring new ideas for the rest of the year. So here are the things you need to know.
Our email will be set to an auto-reply response.
Any orders placed between 16th August and 1st September will be made and dispatched after this period. All order placed before the 16th will be sent out before we go away. However while we are away there will be no one in the office and so there will be a delay on any new orders until the first week in September
If you want to ask a question or have something urgent you need then you can contact us on Twitter @GSilicone and our lovely social media curator Molly will help you .
Thank you for all your support and understanding.
Now we’re off to pack our bags.
Wishing you all a lovely rest of the summer.

Last month we held our Pride auction in which we made 6 exclusive Ambit dildos in various different pride colours. Every single penny that we raised from that auction was sent to the Albert Kennedy Trust to help support their work with vulnerable LGBT+ youth.
A total of £307 was raised by you amazing people, £307 pounds! We submitted the money to the Albert Kennedy Trust on 13th June at 10.46PM. That money will pay for 12 nights of safety in LGBT-friendly emergency accommodation for a young person in crisis and in our eyes that’s a huge thing!
All of us here at Godmeiche want to say thank you for making that possible. We want to thank you for bidding, thank you for sharing, thank you for doing your little bit to help this auction raise the money it did. We as a community have helped to better someone’s life who’s in need and that is something we are very proud of.
Speaking of thank you’s, we received an email from Claire at the Albert Kennedy Trust thanking us for the donation. We followed that up with a phone call were we discussed the auction with her and explained how it was our customers who had really raised the money. As a result of that Claire wanted to share a thank you directly with those people and this is what she sent us:
“We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped to raise the fantastic amount of £307 by bidding on this auction, and to Godemiche for choosing to support our young people in this creative way.
Sadly for many LGBT young people there is no safe place to call home, and many have experienced rejection, abuse and violence. Like you, we believe this is unacceptable. The money you raised together can pay for 12 nights of safety for a LGBT young person facing homelessness.
We believe that no young person should have to choose between a safe home and being who they are. Thank you again to everyone who helped make this auction such a brilliant success, and we wish you all a very happy Pride month”

There must have been an angel by my side
Something heavenly led me to you
Look at the sky
It’s the colour of love
There must have been an angel by my side
Something heavenly came down from above
He led me to you! […]
He built a bridge to your heart
All the way
How many tons of love inside?
I can’t say!
When I was led to you
I knew you were the one for me
I swear the whole world could feel my heartbeat
When I lay eyes on you
You wrapped me up in
The colour of love
You gave me the kiss of life
Kiss of life
Kiss the lips to get even more Sinful images
[First, a quick note on terms: I am a queer, cisgender woman and am writing from that perspective. However, I have used the term “vulva-owners” and gender-neutral pronouns in this piece as much as possible in order to be more inclusive in my language. Not everyone who has a vulva is a woman, and not all women have vulvas!]
Strap-on sex is amazing. I love both giving and receiving penetration with a strap-on, regardless of the gender or genital configuration of my partner. But how can you get the best out of this often misunderstood sex act?
Let’s Bust Some Myths!
“Queer women who want to be penetrated with a strap-on are actually straight.” Nope! The sex acts you engage in (or the toys you use) have precisely nothing to do with your sexual orientation. A queer-identified person who wants to be vaginally penetrated with a strap-on isn’t secretly wishing they were having sex with a cis man, I promise. Orientation is based on who you do the things with (or don’t,) not on the things you do.
“Using a big dildo will stretch out my vagina permanently.” Again, no. Vaginas are muscles and muscles are pretty incredible things – they stretch and then spring back to their original state. No sex toy – or bio cock – can permanently stretch your vagina.
“The person doing the penetrating doesn’t get any pleasure.” In my experience, this is absolutely not true. There are all kinds of ways to ensure the penetrating partner gets pleasure too – some harnesses have little pockets where you can put a small vibrator to stimulate the wearer’s clitoris, and you can even get “strapless strap-ons” (think the Feeldoe) where one end sits inside the giver’s vagina while they penetrate their partner with the other end. (Note: I do not recommend these for beginners as they’re more difficult to use and control than standard strap-ons.) There’s also pleasure beyond the physical. For me, the “thud” of muscle on muscle as I fuck my partner, and the sounds and expressions of pleasure they make, are hugely gratifying in and of themselves.
Now that we’ve got those out of the way, let’s move on.
Picking the Right Gear
Godemiche recently published a fabulous piece on picking the right harness so do check that out. Personally I recommend picking something comfortable, adjustable, and with the ability to change the ring size so that you can use different dildos with it.
The next step is choosing your dildo. There are four main things to consider:
- Body safety! You want a non-porous and non-toxic material. For a strap-on dildo, that means going for pure silicone. Buy your toys from a reputable manufacturer or retailer, not on eBay or Amazon!
- Size. I recommend starting small if you’re not used to being penetrated regularly. You can always work up. Another option, if you can afford to, is to buy a selection of dildos of different sizes to play with.
- Texture. Some people love being penetrated with textured dildos – think ridges, bumps or realistic “veins”. Others, like me, find it painful. If in doubt I recommend starting with a smooth toy.
- Base. Your dildo needs to have a wide enough base to hold it securely in your harness. Look for words like “flared base,” “strap-on compatible” or “harness compatible” in the product listing.
And finally, don’t forget lube! If you’re using a silicone dildo, you need a good quality, water-based lubricant. Even if you or your partner produces a lot of lubrication naturally, a little extra can’t hurt and will help prevent any bad pain from happening. I recommend Sliquid.
Now the Fun Part!
Okay, you’re all set and you’re ready to have some strap-on fun! I hope these tips will help you and your partner get the most out of the experience.
First, try to take the pressure off yourselves. The goal shouldn’t be for the receptive partner to have taken your biggest dildo up to the hilt by the end of the night. The goal should simply be for you both to have a lovely, connective, sexy time together.
I don’t like the term “foreplay” (the acts we usually refer to as “foreplay” are part of sex!) but for want of a better term, it will have to do for now. So: plenty of foreplay. Start with cuddling, kissing, making out and touching each other until you’re both really turned on. Some people like to have an orgasm – or several – before being penetrated at all. If that’s the case, you can do hand sex, oral sex, play with toys, or masturbate together.
When it’s time for penetration, positioning is important – and what’s comfortable will depend on the size, shape and ability level of your bodies. I’m quite short, so I like to kneel between my partner’s legs and use a pillow or two to lift their hips up, giving me better access to their vagina. You can also use a piece of sex furniture such as a Liberator wedge, if that helps – this can be particularly useful for those in bigger bodies or with limited mobility. Other positions include the receptive partner on their back on the bed while the giving partner stands; missionary; doggie; or on your sides in the “spooning” position. Let your imaginations run wild and position yourselves in whatever way feels natural and comfortable.
You may need to guide the dildo into your partner’s vagina manually. Don’t be afraid to do this – better to have a little help from your hand than to go in at the wrong angle and cause them pain. Slide inside slowly at first, and give them time to adjust to the sensation.
The main tool you need is, of course, communication. Don’t be afraid to communicate verbally before, during and after strap-on play. You don’t need to carry on a full conversation during (unless you want to!) of course, but using your words is an important and underrated skill. Phrases like “How does that feel?” “Are you ready for me to go deeper?” and “Please let me know if anything hurts” are really useful for the penetrating partner. And phrases such as “Harder,” “Slow down a bit” and even “Can we change position, my leg’s going to sleep?” are useful if you’re the one being penetrated.
Try different types of movement. It’s not all about pounding! Try thrusting, try moving your hips in circles while your dildo is inside your partner, try moving the dildo very slowly just a few inches in and out, and try holding still and having your partner clench their vaginal walls around the dildo. Pay attention to the reactions you get and, again, communicate.
Let’s Talk About Orgasm!
The vast majority of people with vulvas do not experience orgasm from penetration alone. This doesn’t mean you’re doing anything wrong, and it doesn’t mean they’re broken! If you’re struggling with this, read Emily Nagoski’s amazing book, Come As You Are. In general, I don’t recommend making orgasm your main or only goal, because goal-oriented sex tends to feel too pressured to be fun. However, if the receiving partner would like to try to reach orgasm during your strap-on play and doesn’t get there just from penetration, you’ll need to introduce some clitoral stimulation. (Even if orgasm isn’t necessarily your aim, lots of people really like having their clitoris stimulated while they’re being penetrated!)
Rub your partner’s clit with your fingers while you fuck them, or have them touch themselves if they prefer – or you could use a vibrator, from a small bullet vibe right up to a mains-powered wand. Whatever feels good for you both, do it. Some people will want you to thrust hard and fast as they get close to orgasm, and others will want you to stop moving and just hold your dildo inside them. The only way to know your partner’s preference is to ask and to follow their body language, so do that!
What if it goes wrong?
In sex, as in life, sometimes things won’t go the way you want them to. Perhaps the receiving partner experiences pain as soon as you try to penetrate them (if this happens regularly, see a doctor.) Or perhaps you just bump their cervix or go in at slightly the wrong angle and it hurts. Perhaps everything’s going well, but one or both of you just can’t quite get off. That’s okay! Things might not go perfectly, the first time or any subsequent time. The key to good sex isn’t everything being perfect, it’s learning how to roll with the punches and adjust.
Good sex should never hurt unless it’s consensual, safely applied pain. So if it hurts, stop! Receiving partners, listen to me: please do not endure pain because you think it’s what your partner wants. No-one who loves you will be okay with hurting you in a way you don’t like.
Try not to see needing to stop or change something as a failure. You’re exploring each other’s bodies and this new activity. If you need to switch position, switch position. If you need a break, take a break. If you need to stop and do something else… you see where I’m going with this. Everything that goes wrong is a learning experience. With tonnes of mutual respect, affection, good communication and emphasis on consent, nothing truly terrible is going to happen – promise.
Congratulations, you’re done! I hope you had a wonderful time. Now have a long cuddle, tell your partner they’re awesome, and sterilise that dildo! (Boil it in a pot of water on the stove for about ten minutes.) Next time, maybe the other person will wear the cock…?
I call myself a creator because although both myself and Adam are making just dildos to us there is more to it than that. I see things around me as an inspiration for my work. It can be simple things like a painting or a colour of your earrings that then can give me an idea to try some colours together and make new colour combinations for our toys.
What inspires me? Well that is a long list that has new things all the time but recently I was inspired by the Jewel book that I’ve found in our massive collection. The stones themselves are pretty amazing and just gorgeous but one of them caught my eye specifically and I could not get it out of my head. It’s a dark blue Lazulite mineral stone in muscovite. I’ve chosen this one because of its combination of colours. The mesmerizing turquoise and a little bit of navy blue around it followed by pearlescent bronze and a touch of pearl just spoke to me and I was fairly sure would look amazing in one of our dildos. It makes me think of adventures and finding treasure.
I decided to make it in an Adam as I thought the slightly bigger size would just show off the colours better and I think I was absolutely right about that. If you want to see me making it then please do watch the video below and it would be lovely if you left me a nice comment as this is the video I made on my own and my first inspire by creation.
your carnal flower opens,
its butterfly released,
hovers like a hummingbird dringking from the bill.
Oh, I too would steal you away and cage you happily,
to get under your black-fringed skirt;
to see that pretty dress,
fly off once more,
and see you bare;
burned now forever in my banks,
a first sight,
of dark curls!
As I think of it, my desire stirs,
but I have already masturbated twice,
thinking of us ;
jammed, hips pinned, sliding over our wet perspiring bellies,
in our jungle heat:
’cause in the firmament of our embrace,
where glued we jerk into each other,
until sleep, when we disappear from each other:
my mind in reveries,
filled with niggling neurotic inanities;
yours with manic dreams where criminals in cages
beg to be freed,
before better spaces overtake. […]
Check who else was sinful by kissing the lips

Anal douching/enema’s are something we talk about often but as a general rule we find no one knows what they are. So we have put together our beginners guide to anal douching/enema.
However if you prefer watching to reading then jump straight to the bottom of this post and watch our video on the subject
What does an anal douche/enema look like?
An anal douche has a bulbous base, the bulbous base is hollow and can be made of plastics, silicone or rubber. The bulbous base is hollow and holds a small amount of water. At the top of the bulbous base is a nozzle, water is squeezed from the base up through the nozzle and into your butt.
The body passes poo out the bum hole and douching is a way of cleaning your butt for anal sex. If your anxious about getting shit all over your dick then douching can help alleviate that concern. It’s also much cleaner for general penetration and also other things such as anal rimming.
Douching on a daily basis is not recommended as it can affect the intestinal microflora, disturbing the balance of your bowel. A simple and easy way for a cleaner dowel is a high-fibre healthier diet and less greasy foods will stiffen up your poo and greatly reduce the need to douche.
How to use a douche
Buy yourself an anal douche. We DO NOT recommend sharing anal douche even if it’s completely cleaned. Having your own anal douche reduces the chance of spreading intestinal parasites or certain STIs.
Fill the bulbous base with lukewarm water. Then carefully insert the nozzle in to your butt and squeeze in the water no need to squeeze in all the water. Pro tip, lube up the tip so it goes in nice and smoothly. Also make sure the water is lukewarm, cold water will give you cramps, hot water can scold your insides. With the water inside you, hold it there in your butt for a couple of seconds, standing up is easier to hold on the water inside. After a couple of seconds sit down on the toilet and release all the water. You need to get up and look at the water, if the toilet water is not clear then you need to repeat the douching process again, fill up the douche, stick it in, squeeze, release, check. You want to repeat this steps until the waters clear. If you have done this 6 time and the water is not clear then we recommend you accept today’s not a butt day and stop.
Take a couple of moments to make sure all the waters out. A common mistake is that they people don’t get all the water out and that water makes an appearance when your having anal sex. It’s not pleasant and avoidable so just take a couple of seconds to make sure it’s all gone.
Once the water runs clear then it’s time for a shower because you can’t be too clean when it comes to butt play. Wash your butt, don’t put soap in side your butt.
So that was our simple steps to anal douching. We hope it helps and if you have any questions please get in contact.
Douching really is as simple as it sounds you just have to take your time.
Today marks our second Independence day.
It does not mark the day we started trading as Godemiche but the day when we finally left our day jobs and both started working as Godemiche full time. Gone were the days of a regular wage, now it was truly all down to us. Whilst it was a nerve wrecking time it was also hugely exciting for both of us to be our own bosses. All we knew back then was that we wanted to make beautiful, colourful, body safe, affordable toys for people.
Last year it was amazing to realise that we had managed a whole year working for ourselves but this year it feels doubly special because we no longer feel like we are giving this a try but that we have some great extent succeeded in making it a success. Clearly we still very much at the beginning of the Godemiche journey but completing a second year as our own bosses has really helped our confidence and belief in what are doing.
This past year has been one of huge growth for us. We have added new products to our range, we continue to make colours the centre of everything we do and are constantly experimenting with different mixes and combinations. We went to Erofame in Germany and expanded our wholesale business and we have launched our lovely new website/shop to name just a few f the highlights of the last 365 days.
We have a huge list of ideas and plans for the next year too including very exciting new product, new colours, lots more of our guides and tips videos as well as some other secret things we can’t mention just yet but before we move forward with all that we really want to celebrate this last year of Godemiche with you our friends, customers, supports because you really are the heart of what we do. We have always believed that good customer service and a quality product are the core values really of what we do and so as a huge thank you to every one who has helped us along the way we are yet again thanking you and celebrating this special day in the life of our business with a huge 24 hour *50% off Independence sale.

Adam and Monika
Pegging is the reason we got in to the adult industry with ThatPosition back in 2012. It’s something we know well and something we LOVE to talk about and believe it or not pegging is super, super popular.
If you don’t know what pegging is, your in the right place to learn. We have put together this no nonsense Q&A to simply explain what pegging is so you can go and explore. We also have a video for those of you like me that prefer watching to reading. Just scroll to the bottom of the page and hit play.
Q. What is pegging?
Simply put pegging is a sexual act where a woman fucks a guy in the ass with a dildo.The dildo is generally held in a strap on harness, like sexy underwear that lets you fuck a people.
Q. How does a woman do a guy?
Well the fucking is done with a dildo that usually has a round, flared base designed for a strap on harness. The flared base also stops a toy being pulled in to your bum if used out of a strap on harness. The woman then wears a strap on harness that holds the dildo so her hands are free to do the holding and her hips can do the rocking.
Q. Is it enjoyable?
Hell yes. There are many enjoyable things about it.
The thought of it being naughty and ‘not the done thing’ can be for some people very exciting. Then you have the physical sensation that is also enjoyable enhanced by the prostate (the male g-spot) that is found just inside the bum. Then you have the visual side, the person fucking you, the way their boobs sway and move, how their hands wander and eyes shine with excitement. Pack them all together and what you get is powerful, mind blowing orgasms.
Q. Where do we start?
Assuming that you have both discussed pegging then a basic strap on harness and slender, finger like dildo and lube would be the ideal place to start.
Our advice on harnesses is not to spend to much, you don’t yet know what you both like and every strap on harness and dildo have different features, feelings and price. We have even made a video about what harness to buy which you can see on Picking a Strapon Harness.
Today’s topic is pegging positions.
Doggy, Missionary & Cowboy are the 3 main positions for pegging that we enjoy. Each of these positions can be adapted with slight variation in body position or different locations and furniture such as beds or chairs.
And if reading is not your thing than jump straight to the bottom and watch our video on this subject instead.
So let’s start with the one everyone will know, doggy style. The person being pegged is at the bottom on hands an knees and the pegger is the one behind them on their knees.
It’s a simple position that involves the pegger doing all the work.
This position is great for more focused prostate stimulation also and also the person doing the pegging a great of movement. If you are new to pegging though take it easy at first as it is a new sensation that the person being pegged will need time to get used to.
Top tip – if your using a curved dildo like our Ambit, then turn it round so the dildo points down and not up. Your prostate is between the bladder and the tummy, so when your on your hands and knees to get the most prostate stimulation make sure your toy curves down towards the prostate not away from it.
Another staple sex position of the bedroom but this time round he is on the bottom and she is on top. While laying on your back raise your legs towards your chest, your probably going to want to hold your legs.
As a pegger if your feeling especially dominant you can take hold of their legs and force them back. Taking control can add to the experience for both of you, remember this is a change of positions for you both, sometimes you want to be dominated and that feeling of just being fucked is hot.
This position is great if you love watching. Laying on your back you get to see everything, her face, her boobs, your cock. Talking about cocks, this position is the best for having unrestricted access to your cock and allows you to look into each others eyes as you share this experience together.
Top tip – have a pillow handy to place under your lower back. It will raise you up just a little making penetration easier and enhancing the feeling.
Yep you got it just like cow girl but he does the riding. It lets your have complete control over how quick, how deep and just exactly how much you want to stimulate the prostate.
Much more of a relaxed position for the pegger who lays on there back and enjoys the show. As a pegger this is also a good position for playing with their cock as you don’t have to concentrate on anything other than enjoying the show.
Top tip – this is a great position to play around with edging. Edging is where you get almost to the point of orgasm, then stop and this is repeated. The build up of almost having an orgasm repeatedly can make for a more explosive orgasm when you finally do.
In summery these are 3 pegging positions we believe you should try first, each having a different sensation for you both to experience. It’s ok not to like them all, everyone is different and it’s all about finding whats enjoyable for you. When you find what you like then you can explore different variations on that position.
Let us know your top tips and what position or positions you enjoy the most when it comes to pegging in the comments below.
