Sex Toy Descriptions
Vibrators provide a kind of stimulation no human body can. Unlike dildos which only move the way you move them, vibrators have motors which move and whir and create a strong consistent stimulation. There are thousands of different styles of vibrators, but the main difference between them is their power source (plug in or battery powered), their quality, the material they are made of, and what the vibration feels like.
Dildos are sex toys designed for vaginal or anal penetration. Dildos don't 'do' anything other than what we make them do (they don't have motors or moving parts). The pleasure of dildos comes from penetration. Dildos are made from a wide range of materials including plain rubber, silicone, vinyl, plastic, metal, wood, and glass. You can get a dildo in almost any shape and size imaginable. All dildos are safe for vaginal use, but a dildo for anal use must have a flared base and be free of sharp edges or seams.
Lubricant makes every kind of sex better. It not only makes sex more comfortable, but it can increase sensitivity, allow you to do things that would otherwise be too painful or dangerous, and it makes all kinds of sex safer.
We carry both water based lubricants and silicone based lubricants. Each lubricant has its benefits and drawbacks.
Water Based Lubricant
- Widely available.
- Safe for use with condoms and all sex toys.
- Depending on the brand it can be almost completely tasteless.
- Dries out and requires you to add more water or more lubricant.
- Some formulations contain glycerin and preservatives that some people react to.
- Doesn't dry up, lasts longer than any water based lubricant
- No glycerin, fewer ingredients to react to.
- Does not absorb in the body.
- More Expensive
- Some brands have a bad chemical taste
- Cannot be used with silicone sex toys
Condoms, when used properly, provide a highly effective way to protect yourself and your partner(s) from sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy. Condoms are for single use only and you must use a new condom for each sexual act involving penetration. In addition to being an important part of practicing safer sex, condoms are a great way to keep your sex toys clean and prolonging their life.
As the name suggests a double dildo, also called double header and double ended dildo, is a sex toy that is designed to have two ends safe for penetration. Double dildos may be associated with certain kinds of people, but they can be used by any two people for simultaneous penetration (either vaginal or anal) or by one person for double penetration.
Penis sleeves, also called masturbation sleeves or masturbators, are one of the most popular types of sex toy for men. The basic penis sleeve is a cylindrical sheath that the penis goes into and can either be moved up and down the shaft of the penis or remain still while the penis moves in and out of the sleeve. There are thousands of different styles of penis sleeves on the market, each with benefits and drawbacks.
Generally the sleeves that have a snugger fit provide more intense stimulation, and the bigger sleeves provide a feeling of envelopment, which is more subtle (although more pleasurable for some). Less expensive sleeves, the ones made from jelly rubber/silicone mixes can be a lot of fun, but the ridges and bumps on the inside of the sleeve can wear down fast.
The Fleshlight is in a category all its own in the field of penis sleeves. Made from an incredibly durable and soft material, The Fleshlight lasts for years and feels like nothing else.
Vibrating Penis Sleeves
Some penis sleeves offer vibration in addition to the feel of enveloping or friction that a sleeve provides. Many vibrating sleeves don't deliver on their promise as the vibration is distributed across such a large area that it isn't strong enough, or the vibrator is positioned in a way that doesn't stimulate the most sensitive parts of the penis. The vibrating toys we like are ones that are smaller and focus the vibration.
The Fleshlight may be the bestselling male sex toy of all time. Modeled on the basic penis sleeve, the Fleshlight's patented realistic soft skin is incredibly pliable but amazingly strong and durable at the same time. Easy to clean and store, the Fleshlight's modular system let's you add specialty inserts (some models also come with a case) for versatility.
When used with the case The Fleshlight creates an enveloping sensation and subtle suction that many men find highly pleasurable.
Anal Sex Toys
Anal sex toys offer a wide range of sensations and possibilities for exploring anal play by yourself or with a partner. There are three main kinds of anal sex toys, but all anal sex toys should have the same key design features to make them safe to use:
- Anal sex toys should be smooth, without sharp edges or seams.
- Anal sex toys should have a flared base or end that prevents them from slipping all the way in.
- Anal sex toys should be made of a strong material that won't easily break and that is easy to clean.
Anal dildos are toys designed specifically for anal penetration. While all dildos can be used for vaginal penetration they aren't all safe for anal use. An anal dildo should have a wide flared base to prevent it from slipping up into the rectum, it should have no sharp or rough edges.
Most anal dildos will also be smaller than vaginal dildos, although this isn't always the case.
Anal beads, also known as 'thai beads', are a string of beads designed for anal penetration. Instead of being about pressure or fullness, anal beads play on the sensation of the two ringed sphincter muscles, such that when you pull the beads out (which you do gently, with lots of lube) they pass along the muscles and create a sensation some people find very pleasing. Some sex manuals will describe anal beads being pulled out at the point of orgasm, but this isn't necessary for them to be enjoyable.
Anal beads may be connected by a string or a solid piece of rubber that has a series of balls or beads running up it.
