Silicone Explained

0

by Kate M.

We get it. You keep hearing that silicone is an amazing material, but you’re not supposed to use it with silicone lube, except that maybe sometimes you can?

And, wait, can you store silicone toys with other silicone toys?

What’s this I’ve been hearing about testing the rubber by setting my toys on fire?

Blogger Lorax of Sex has answered all of these questions and more in this epic fact-fest. If you’re buying or using silicone, you definitely want to check it out.

Top 5 Toys for Shower Sex

0

by Kate M.

May is a funny month. Depending where you are, it might be beach weather [hey there, L.A.!] or you might just be hanging up your winter coat and breaking out your windbreaker. Luckily, whether the weather is hot or cold, a nice shower can either be warm and soothing or cool and refreshing. What better place to get fresh with a special friend?

And what better accessories to take with you than these?

Dual Locking Suction Handle

It may not look like the sexiest toy in the world, but you know what’s really not sexy? Spending your shower sexcapade worrying that you’re going to fall down.

We-Vibe 4

We-Vibe 4 remote pink

This waterproof remote-controlled couples vibrator rests against the clit and the G-spot and is designed to be worn during intercourse. Plus, its quality silicone is compatible with our favorite high grade, shower-proof silicone lube…

Pjur Bodyglide

This lube is utter luxury. More importantly, it won’t rinse right off the way your body’s natural lubrication will. Keep shower play slick and sexy with the only silicone lube that’s been approved to use with We-Vibe and Tantus toys.*

Mio

It’s the classic vibrating cock ring, but waterproof and classy as hell, for longer, stronger, more intense shower sex.

Spareparts Tomboi Harness

The Tomboi won’t falter in water! This sturdy, stylish, machine washable harness can hold almost any dildo in its elastic o-ring and stays comfortable and secure when wet. Try pairing it with a Tantus toy, so that you can have your silicone and use it too.*

 

*That’s right, you get to break the cardinal rule: never use silicone lube with a silicone toy. Tantus and We-Vibe have both approved their silicone toys to be used with Pjur and only Pjur silicone lube. The lube and toys are each made of such high grade silicone that one won’t degrade the other.

Sex After 70

0

by Kate M.


If you haven’t checked out Lynn Brown Rosenberg’s recent article on Salon, “My Sexual Awakening at 70” or her interview on The Huffington Post, you absolutely should. She describes her quest for sexual enjoyment later in life, including a trip to The Pleasure Chest:

“I drove to a specialty shop in West Hollywood. The name alone gave me heart palpitations: Pleasure Chest. But I was quite surprised when I got there. The products were laid out nicely. The salesgirl was helpful and easygoing. I almost felt comfortable.

There were so many items to choose from!  I decided on something called Budding Bliss. I bought a porn DVD. Why not? If I was going to stoop, why not stoop all the way?”

Lynn Brown Rosenberg’s book, My Sexual Awakening at 70 will be coming out soon. If you’re interested in learning more about Lynn’s journey, please visit her website, www.lynnbrownrosenberg.com and sign up for updates.

For anyone in a similar situation, we’d also recommend Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Sex After 60 by Joan Price, who also speaks about senior sex as part of our video campaign, Sex is Back.
