What the Kink?! Lions, Tigers, & Challenges

9 Mar

african-safari-travelYou are faced with a challenge: finding your way through a jungle with no map and a general idea of where you want to go. What do you do?

Do you gather resources and plan? Do you run into the jungle armed only with what you are carrying in your backpack? Do you reminisce over the olde days of Oregon Trail and the awesome survival skills that you exhibited during that journey? (I never made it to Oregon, for the record. Dysentery, tragic.) Anyway, the point is, you are trying to get from point A to point B and there are challenges in your way.  Continue reading

Ask An Educator: Selling Toys To Minors

6 Jun

If a minor were to enter your shop in hopes of purchasing a masturbation tool would you allow them to buy it?

perfect world In perfect world (our perfect world at least), everyone who was mature enough to be thinking about sex and self pleasure would be able to come to a sex positive shop and purchase a toy for themselves.

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

Aneros Evi

2 May

Aneros Evi boxThe moment the Evi hit the shelves at Secret Pleasures, I was intrigued. A toy that claims that it will not only strengthen my kegels but also give me G-Spot and clitoral pleasure at the same time? Yes please! Sadly, Evi didn’t live up to the hopes I had for it.

Aneros is fabulous company that has been making some of the best prostate toys on the market since 1996. When Evi was launched, I was thrilled that they were finally making a toy specifically for vaginal use. I had been secretly coveting the Aneros prostate massagers for years and while they can certainly be used vaginally, I felt like I would be missing out on an intrinsic part of the experience since I am not the proud owner of a prostate.
