Safety of sex toy materials is not exactly a black and white thing. People really focus on phthalates an awful lot; and while I absolutely agree that they’re terrible, they’re not the only thing about a sex toy that can harm you. There are many nasty chemicals. Heavy metals like cadmium can be present. The issue with VOCs can exist without phthalates coming in to question. And then there’s all these thousands and thousands of porous sex toys saturating the market.
But people just don’t seem to understand or care much about porosity outside of our little sex educator/reviewer bubble. Why? Because they don’t know it is even a thing.
This is what my sex toy “collection” looked like before I started reviewing. And while I’ve gotten rid of half of my toybox, I still have a 3-shelf cabinet and a 3-drawer dresser filled with sex toys.
Also: Behold, my pathetic vibrators.
Yep. That’s about the only cock shot I’ll enjoy, Mr Alex Minsky. Thank you.
My favorite favorite pics of this awesome wedding are the two when they first see each other during the ceremony.
Those two pics make me weep weepy happy tears.
In case you are a fan of same sex unions, weddings in general,or are just really itching to know what I look like (or my wife, as I haven’t posted a picture of her yet[she’s the adorable one in the suspenders]) here’s the promised wedding picture spam.
Best day of my life.
Inspired by the @smittenkittenmn jars, I made my own last summer. I checked mine today and have found an increase in the puddle but also it’s obvious now that the clear, glittery rabbit vibe material is starting to completely break down. There is free-floating glitter in the jar.
Browsing on Shevibe.com this morning, I noticed something new in the sex toy storage section. I clearly am behind the times, but I wasn’t aware Liberator came out with a toy storage option. I actually like the looks of it! I really dislike the Devine brand — anything I’ve had from them was poorly constructed — and the now-defunct ForYourNymphomation cases were a bit pricey.
While these things won’t work for hardcore reviewers like me, the average sex toy owner could make it work easily. And they’re affordable enough to buy a second one down the road. Of course, I can’t speak to their durability because I don’t have one in my hands, but I’m going to try to change that! I just have to decide on which color to buy.
I need to browse shevibe more often, clearly.
You know how certain silicone sex toys never stay clean for more than a minute? They can attract any rampant bits of lint, pet fur and dust in a 1-mile radius.
If you’re in a living situation where it’s not possible for you to run your still-dripping-wet sex toys from the bathroom to the bedroom just prior to use, then having a wipe is a great solution. But most wipes on the market have ingredients that I wouldn’t put in my vagina, so I made my own.
I don’t take break-ups lightly…
But more and more I am reminded that I made a good personal decision to break up with Lelo. Yesterday I spoke with someone who has owned 3 Lelos, 2 defective. Today, I am in the middle of charging up about a dozen “upper class” sex toys for a short education show n tell I’m doing tomorrow and now my Ina 2 (which doesn’t get used much, just for review comparisons) has that motor-wobble thing going on that many experienced with the JimmyJane Form something, the one that looked like prongs. The entire handle is shaking with the ferocity of the wobbles and it is twice as loud as before.
My revamped Tor II cock ring won’t even turn on. It’s been awhile since I last tried to charge it, but it’s been just as long since I tried to charge my ORIGINAL We-Vibe….which still works fine.
