Sex Toys To Avoid: Anal Desensitizers

There’s this popular myth that anal sex is painful for the receiver. Don’t get me wrong; it can be very painful … if you’re doing it wrong. Anal sex that is pleasurable for both giver and receiver is something that can take a lot of patience, especially for beginners. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t know how to go about warming up for anal sex and they take the quick and easy way out by using an anal lubricant or spray with numbing ingredients like Benzocaine or Lidocaine.

Sex Toys to Avoid: For Novelty Use Only

Americans are used to having all of their products regulated. Food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, cars, children’s toys, etc. Everything is tested and tested again and if there ends up being a problem there is a recall. The items that may effect people in negative ways usually come with warnings “do not operate heavy machinery,” “may cause cancer,” “keep out of reach of children.” Have you ever looked at what it says on the vast majority of sex toy boxes?

When To Retire A Sex Toy

There’s nothing quite like a good connection to your favorite sex toy. Whether it’s a vibrator, a dildo, a plug, a ring, or a harness it’s always there for you in the good times and the bad. Even if your beloved toy is like a friend to you, sometimes you have to acknowledge that they’ve given you all the can and it’s time for them to move along to greener pastures. It might be time to say goodbye if: Continue Reading →

Sex Toy Review: The Aneros Prostate Toy

Wow, was I nervous when I got the Aneros in the mail.  First of all, it is one of the first sex toys I had ever had the pleasure of owning.  Second, not only was I going to use a prostate toy for the first time, I was also going to write about the experience and post it on the Internet.  Yikes! However, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use and how comfortable I felt afterwards with the whole encounter.  I would recommend the Aneros to new and seasoned P-spot finders alike.  In terms of recent blockbusters, the experience with it was more “Inception” than “The Expendables” – it wasn’t as intense as expected, but left me thinking about it for many days after.

This Week on MSP: Dungeons, Sex Toy Retirement & Love Songs

If our dog (below) had her druthers, she would get to keep her mangy dog toys forever. Fortunately, we – like many dog people – know when our dog’s toys have met their demise (typically when the stuffing is pulled out and she’s found that squeaky part). But how well do people know when to throw out their own toys? Specifically, their sex toys? Recently, a friend was telling me about someone who was saying how he felt bad that he and his girlfriend were still using a pretty run-down vibrator when clearly (from his perspective) they needed a new one to use together.

The G-Spot, The P-Spot: Sex Toys for Multiple Purposes and Genders

I’m all about being inclusive with sexuality, both inside and outside of the bedroom. And nothing is more sexually inclusive, or economically practical, than being able to use your sex toys for different purposes on different bodies. So I’ve compiled a list of toys that can be used both vaginally as well as anally for sexual stimulation: with some boiling in between, of course! Since the g-spot and the prostate are located approximately one to three and two to three inches in towards the belly button inside the vaginal and anal canals respectively, they each respond well to toys with a slight curvature in them in order to apply pressure to the area. An additional bonus with prostate toys is that regular stimulation of the prostate, leading to the excretion of seminal fluid and often, intense orgasms, can promote prostate health.

Locked! Male Chastity Devices

Medieval Male Chastity

Chastity belts, both male and female, have a wild mythological history allegedly dating back to the times of the Crusades. Although the concept of a chastity belt does appear in Renaissance poetry and literature, all models previously thought to have come from Medieval times have been confirmed as clever fakes designed by the Victorians. It was not until the 19th century that chastity belts made their first truly functional appearance. Continue Reading →
