Sex Toys and Caring For Them
Do you intend
to use your sex toy by yourself or with your partner? Choosing a
sex toy and using it together with your partner will foster better
intimacy, understanding and openness. Some sex toys are used only
for solo play, while some such as love swings can only be used with
toys can be designed for penetration or clitoral stimulation. Some
can do both. Women are aroused differently and knowing which erogenous
zones stimulate you more can help in choosing the right sex toys.
For penetrative stimulation, the shaft type vibrators or dildos
are a good choice. For clitoral stimulation, we recommend the most
popular rabbit vibrator range. The rabbit range serves a dual purpose,
penetration and clitoral stimulation. The base of the shaft has
a bunny ear shaped soft like material designed to gently massage
the clitoris while the shaft is inserted in the vagina. Rabbit vibrators
are the most popular sex toys the world over and we highly recommend
that you shop around for one.
Some sex toys
like vibrators can be a bit noisy. You don't want to rouse your
neighbors and housemates, do you? For this, you can consider variable
speed vibrators or vibrators that emit a low level of noise.
Sex toys generally
come in porous or non-porous material. Porous materials such as
cyberskin are extremely lifelike. They feel very realistic and are
often molded after the real thing. Non-porous materials such as
plastic, soft PVC, silicone and glass are smooth and come in varying
textures. Either way, they should be used with lots of lubrication.
Porous materials will require a bit more cleaning as bacteria can
grow between the pores. Water and soap will be enough for non-porous
a personal preference when it comes to color, shape, size, studded
or smooth and elongated. It's a matter of preference. Choose from
a variety of characteristics including those that glow in the dark.
Wet and dry
Are you planning
to use your toy in the bath? Many people have discovered how much
fun they can have in the bath. Waterproof toys such as the rubber
duck or waterproof dildos make good companions.
Do you want
to take your vibrator on the road with you or are you planning on
keeping it at home? There are small battery powered vibrators such
as the Pocket Rocket which can fit into the palm of your hand.
and caring for your Sex Toys
Since sex toys
are used on the most sensitive parts of your body, it makes sense
to keep it well cleaned and cared for. With a few simple steps,
you can prolong the life of your toy.
Water- and silicone-based
lubricants are safe to use with sex toys. Avoid using oil- or petroleum-based
lubricants as they break down latex material. Vaseline or olive
oil are for external use only and are great for massaging. Never
use oil-based lubricants for any penetration as they can cause infections
if not properly cleaned.
are smooth and warm water and soap usually does the trick. If needed,
silicone sex toys can be sterilized by boiling it for 3 to 5 minutes.
Porous materials such as cyberskin and rubber require a bit more
care as bacteria can hide within the pores. Avoid using soap on
cyberskin to maintain the texture. Instead, rinse with lots of warm
water or sterilize with alcohol. It is best air-dried and sprinkled
with cornstarch or talcum to maintain the smooth surface. To keep
all your toys clean and ready to use, you can also pickup a care
& cleaning kit.
be placed over sex toys so it can be safely shared with multiple
partners. They also make cleaning that much easier. Rubber dildos
are porous materials which must be sterilized if shared with multiple
partners. Otherwise, use a condom over rubber dildos.
Try to store
sex toys within reach of the bed. Nothing is more frustrating than
interrupting foreplay and having to walk across the room to dig
out the toy from a secret hidden spot. With that being said, sex
toys should be stored in protective casing or wrapped in a piece
of cloth, away from prying eyes. There are several novelty items
available such as the Hide Your Vibe pillow to discreetly store
your sex toys.
