8 Sex Toys from Art History

0

by Kate M.

Ever wondered what your taste in art says about which sex toys you’ll love? Well, maybe you should. We’ve paired some of our favorite toys with art movements throughout history (okay, mostly 20th century). Take a look, and see which speak to your sensibilities. You might even learn something.

 

arts and crafts collar flora arts and crafts
Arts and Crafts Movement

In the late nineteenth century, the Arts and Crafts movement emerged in opposition to industrialism and the mass production of goods, focusing instead on craftsmanship and design. The Collar Flora is made by an artisan leatherworker, and it boasts a floral design similar to those favored by the movement, which drew inspiration from medieval, romantic, and folk art.

 

classicism goodfella classicism
Classicism
Using Greek and Roman art as its model of perfection, art of the Italian Renaissance emphasized symmetry and attention to form and detail.  The Vixskin Goodfella, a realistic dildo made of the highest quality dual-density silicone, would have made Michelangelo envious (and intrigued).

 

cubism lube cubescubism
Cubism

A hugely influential movement in the early 1900s, Cubist artwork sought to depict its subjects from multiple visual perspectives at once. Sliquid’s Lip Lickers Lube Cube Sampler… is cube-shaped. (Sorry.)

 

 dada kickassdada
Dada

Dada, an “anti-art” movement, developed in protest to World War I. Rooted in anti-capitalist, anti-colonialist politics, Dada sought to upend bourgeois artistic ideals like logic and beauty, instead embracing chaos, irrationality, irreverence, and offensiveness. If anyone in the sex industry comes close to that, it’s Oxballs. Their Kickass Plug is one among many over-the-top ultra-fetishy designs that regularly elicit gasps from customers.

 

 expressionismexpressionism 2
Expressionism

Expressionism aimed to evoke powerful emotions and ideas, deliberately showing its subjects from a subjective viewpoint and distorting familiar, realistic images. The 7 Wheel Pinwheel is also meant to evoke a powerful emotion — namely, fear — by taking a medical tool (the Wartenberg wheel, dragged gently and painlessly over the skin to test nerve sensitivity) and giving it six extra wheels, making it look like a torture device.

 

fauvism amorino fauvism
Fauvism

Embracing bright, bold colors and a less-representational style, Fauvism is Impressionism‘s fun cousin. In an industry that loves pastels and realistic dildos, the designers at Fun Factory are les fauves (“the wild beasts”) of the world of sex toys. In particular, the Fun Factory Amorino is colorful, quirky, and decidedly not-dick-shaped, for someone who wants a rabbit-style vibrator unlike any other.

 

futurism eroscillator futurism

Futurism
Originating in early 20th century Italy, Futurism glorified technology and modernity. The Eroscillator 2, which oscillates instead of vibrating (progress! the triumph of industry!) could have been lifted straight from a Futurist design.

minimalism bullet minimalism

Minimalism
Enough said.

Steak & Blowjob Day Redux:
Mary’s Top 3 BJ Tips

0

by Kate M.

mary's bj tips

This last weekend, our Los Angeles store hosted a Steak & BJ Day event. Mary, one of our sex specialists, taught a blowjob workshop to a standing-room-only crowd and gave away gift cards to Marconda’s Meats at the 3rd St. Farmer’s Market. The audience was so enthusiastic that we wanted to share some of the love with folks who couldn’t attend!

Wondering how to celebrate Steak & BJ Day any day of the year? Start with one of Mary’s tips:

The Cock Ring Trick: Make a “C” shape with your hand, place your thumb on the perineum behind the balls and your fingers above the cock at the base. Clamp down slightly, and this pressure will give the same effect as a cock ring but with added perineum massage!

Tight and Shiny: Lube up and then slide your hand down the cock to the base while gently squeezing. Now use your other hand for an extra sensational handjob. Not allowing the skin to move with you adds extra tactile sensation! Very effective for BJs too.

Deep Throating: Use a Sidekick #2 Sleeve to give the sensation of deep throating without all the cock in your throat. It’s also very helpful for relieving jaw tension. If you do want to try deep throating, take it slow. Consider your positioning. Sword swallowers line their head up with their neck and so should you. Breathe out as you slowly take it back. This opens the throat and relaxes you.

Want more tips? Check out Mary’s interview with Playboy!

Science Says: Drink Wine, Have Sex

0

by Kate M.

red wine

A study that we’re choosing to believe wholeheartedly has indicated that red wine not only increases blood flow to the genitals, but it actually keeps testosterone levels high in male bodies:

“Normally a male’s body rids itself of testosterone when an enzyme called UGT2B17 attaches specific molecules to testosterone, enabling the body to identify it and get rid of it through the urine. But when consuming a glass of red, a compound inside the wine called quercetin effectively blocks UGT2B17, preventing the body from excreting it, and thereby raising levels of testosterone in the blood.”

The takeaway: if you like red wine, having a glass or two with your sweetie can make for a great roll in the hay. Yum.
