Safest Materials for Your Sex Toys

The sex toy industry is a pretty vast one. Believe it or not, there are more materials used to create sex toys as compared to the clothing industry. So, what’s the safest substance for your body? We’ve listed them (Best to worst) down below:

Silicone

Silicone is by far, the best material you can buy. It is soft, flexible and really comfortable for both male and female sex toys. There are numerous reasons as to why we say this. First off, silicone is really easy to clean, that is why it is popular in the medical field too. The material is non-porous and won’t absorb any fluids. However, one major drawback is that these toys cost a bit more than what ordinary people are willing to spend to fulfill their humanly needs.

Elastomer

Elastomer is pretty much the downgraded version of silicone. Most of the characteristics of both materials are the same. For instance, it can also be washed easily, it’s soft but Elastomer is slight porous. It will absorb fluids to some extent and transfer bacteria. If you can’t afford the expensive silicone, then this is the second best thing.

Cyber Skin

Cyber Skin is a material that is used to imitate the soft feel of skin. This substance isn’t that safe but its still number three on our list. It is oil-based with porous material so it should not be used to induce internal pleasure. You should use a condom if doing so. It’s a bit difficult to wash because the standard soap will break down the Cyber Skin material.

A Brief Guide to Cleaning Your Sex Toys

Most people think that if they’re not sharing their sex toys, there is no need to clean them. Well, you’re dead wrong. Recurring use of a sex toy will cause bacteria to grow on the surface which can be harmful for your genitals. Frequently cleaning the sex toys will also protect its material and prolong the lifetime of the toy. So, if you’re new to this, we’ll teach you how to make your toys squeaky clean.

First step is to identify the material. Usually, that information is given on the box. But, if you tossed the box, you can still Google the product and check out its material. We’ll list each material and how you can clean it.

Silicone, Glass, Steel and Wood (Motorized)

The motor means that it can’t come in direct contact with water. Use soap or alcohol on a cloth to clean the toy.

Silicone, Pyrex, Steel and Stone (Not Motorized)

These toys are pretty easy to clean. You can just boil them for about 10 minutes to get rid of the bacteria. You can also toss them in the dishwasher and the steam will clean them too.

Cyber Skin

Cyber needs a little bit of soap and warm water to clean it. Too much of either will destroy the material.

Hard Plastic, Elastomer, Thermoplastic and Jelly Rubber

These materials are highly porous and there’s no definitive way to clean them. We advise using a condom if you’re sharing them with someone else or the result would be an STD.

 

The Ancient History of Sex Toys

When we refer to sex toys, we think of them as a modern day invention. However, Hallie Lieberman thinks differently. She earned her Ph. D from the University of Wisconsin by proving that sex toys are much older than we think they are. In her opinion, 30,000 years ago, our ancestors were making 8-inch penises from siltstone.

Even though they’re older than most of the inventions we use today, they’re still a subject of controversy. In the early 1900s, sex toys couldn’t be sold or advertised publicly. Even today, there are certain laws in some states of the US that don’t permit the public advertisement of these toys. That might be the reason why Hitachi doesn’t openly express what their Magic Wand is meant to do.

Till 1960s, people used to cringe at the word “dildo” and till the mid 2000s, they still did. But, there were a few movies that changed the outlook of people and what they thought about sex toys. “Sex and the City” would be a great example. Their portrayal of the Rabbit Vibrators resulted in a peak in sales. Similarly, 50 Shades of Grey also introduced people to bondage toys that they previously thought inappropriate.

Sex toys are an industry that will keep getting better and better in the years to come. There are new developments being made and new products like Oral Toys are hitting the market. We’re not in the day and age of sex robots, but it’d be an understatement to say that we’re pretty damn close.

A Vague Introduction to the Wonders of Kink

Defining the word is a little bit difficult. So, to make this sex lesson easier, we’ll use a metaphor. Consider a pizza. The crust and the beef is the foundation of a pizza; which is the sex in this metaphor. But, to make it more exciting, we use cheese, olives, pepperoni and quite a few other things to spice it up a bit. Kink does for sex, what toppings do for a pizza. You might get sick of eating the same classical pizza, at this point you experiment with toppings. If your sex life is like the pizza; dull and boring, then a cocktail of kink might just freshen up the mood.

Kink is basically the unorthodox, unusual activities that we all are guilty of hoping for in our sex life. There are all kinds of kinky stuff you can do; the ones we can recall would be bondage, threesomes (or fours if you’re into that), humiliation and slavery. All of these “tricks” are really good to add some flavor to a lackluster sex life.

To conclude this topic, we’ll say that don’t be afraid of expressing your opinions to your partner. There’s a chance that they might also be longing for something extra. Tell them that you’re looking to notch it up a bit.

Easy Ways to Purchase Sex Toys and Other Intimate Stuff

Not all people are comfortable purchasing sex toys, lingerie, and other racy stuff in public stores. Here are some tips to make your buying experience more comfortable:

Go drive-through

Drive through is not just for fast food restaurants. Now drugstores are also offering this service for people who are on the go. If basic sexual items such as condoms and lubricants are what you need, then just drive through and buy your items from the window. No need to go down to the store itself and risk being seen by people you know. If you don’t have a car, you can try ordering through phone then just pick up your items later on. The salesperson will already have the items in the bag and you can just get it and pay. Other shoppers won’t be able to see what you bought.

Buy through sensual product consultants

They are just like Tupperware ladies, only they don’t sell plastic kitchen containers. If you are more comfortable buying stuff in the privacy of your own home, you can just contact these consultants and have them drop by. They can bring the item that you have in mind or choose from the ones they bring with them. You can also organize a passion party and have them host it.

Buy online

All you have to do is choose the item, provide your credit card details, and then have the product delivered to your house. Online buying is safe, easy, and discreet.

How to Shop for a Vibrator

Buying a vibrator should be no different from buying a small home appliance like a toaster, flat iron or vacuum cleaner.

There are many brands in the market and one brand can have several variants. The more expensive the appliance or vibrator, the more features it normally has. The lower-priced ones usually vibrate at a single speed, while the more expensive ones will have several speeds. Does this make a difference? Your call, ma’am, your call.

The high-priced vibrators also tend to be sturdier, so if you expect to use it often then the few extra bucks spent should be worth it.

If budget is not an issue – even the most expensive vibrators are still within reach for most women – go for the branded rather than generic model. Look for one that gives some kind of guarantee just to be sure. Remember that there can be lemons in even the best cars or electronic devices sold because they are manufactured in the tens or hundreds of thousands.

Manufacturers with a track record for quality should provide the best buys, although newcomers to the market will want to grab a slice of the pie by offering more in terms of price or features.

The majority of vibrators sold today are made in China, followed by Western European countries. The US, which introduced the vibrator to the market more than 100 years ago, takes up the tail end of the major vibrator makers.

Is there a best vibrator in the market? Not really. Just as there is no single best car out there, it totally depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend.

What we can say is that the best vibrator is the one that gives you the greatest pleasure. Take your pick!

Cheap Dildos Still Do the Job

Just like any consumer product such as watches, blankets or shoes, dildos come in various price ranges. There are expensive, mid-range and cheap dildos.

The cheap dildos are not necessarily the least effective. In fact, they can be just as good as the more expensive varieties. It all depends on the user. Some would actually prefer the cheap dildos because the materials used provide them greater pleasure.

While not too commonly used in the West, the cheapest dildos would be the wooden phallic symbols known in many Asian and African countries. These are used primarily for religious or cultural celebrations, but practical women quickly found a better use for them – personal pleasure.

These wooden phallic symbols give true meaning to the term “woodie.” They are as hard as the hardest erection of the most masculine men. They’re easy enough to maintain. Simple soap and water will do, and they can last for the longest time depending on how the user takes care of this cheap dildo.

Western women who have qualms about using wooden dildos have other options. For those on a tight budget, there are rubber and plastic models. These are basic, no-nonsense dildos with smooth surfaces. They are much cheaper than the silicone or acrylic varieties.

Since they are tools for masturbation, there really is hardly any difference between cheap dildos and expensive dildos. Masturbation is, after all, a subjective experience. The person using the dildo depends more on her imagination to attain orgasm, and less on the tool being used.
