dildo or vibrator

 

Question: Which toy should I get a dildo or vibrator. What is the difference?

Answer:

Is there a way to tell if this sex toy will bring my body to orgasm? Does more expensive mean more pleasure? Lots of choices means lots of options to experiment with but can also create a daunting shopping experience. We’re here to help you!

Not All Materials Are Created Equal or Why You Should Support Dildology.org!

8 May

sex toy materialsA while back we wrote a long blog post about the different types of materials that are used to create sex toys. It’s a great guide (if we do say so ourselves) but the sex toy industry is largely unregulated and, well, toy manufacturers can pretty much say their toys are made out of what ever the want. Often times, as little as 10% silicone content is all that is needed to call a toy “Silicone”. But what is the other 90% made out of? Manufacturers also come up with patented names for their materials like “SoftSkin” and “UR3” and, unless the manufacturer discloses the chemical make up of that particular material, we have no idea what is in it. This is why it is imperative that you purchase toys from reputable stores and manufacturers. It’s also why it is so important to have an unbiased organization that is committed to having toys tested so that you know EXACTLY what your toy is made of. That’s where the fabulous folks at Dildology.org come in. Continue reading

Ask An Educator: Silicone Lube With Silicone Toys

10 Dec

“Is there a difference between Platinum Silicone and Silicone? If so, what is it? I love silicone, can I use it with toys?”

sliquid silver siliconeSilicone lube is absolutely phenomenal for so many reasons. You can use it in the shower because it’s not water soluble, it lasts forever, it doesn’t get tacky, it’s great for folks with skin sensitivities, you can use it to get your door to stop squeaking (yes, really), Buuuuuut, one major drawback is that silicone lube doesn’t play well with some toy materials – most notably (and ironically) silicone. The reason for that being silicone bonds to silicone. When this happens, the silicone lube turns your expensive silicone toys into a sticky, ruined mess. But that doesn’t always happen … so what’s the deal? Continue reading
