by Kate M.

meany

Update: Congratulations to Faye, who won the Meany! 

We’re giving away a Fun Factory Meany Mini Vibe!

Despite his name, Meany is extra nice. This soft silicone vibrator has a smooth ribbed shaft and a flexible tip enjoyable for both internal and external play. Use the simple touch controls to choose from three different pulse patterns at multiple levels of intensity. The waterproof Meany can also be enjoyed in the shower. 

Plus, the Meany is one of our top 5 toys for outdoor sex, since it’s battery-operated (perfect for camping) and totally non-porous.

Want to win a Meany? Here’s how.

In the comments below, tell us about your top outdoor sex spot – a place you’ve been or a place you’d like to go. We’ll pick a winner at random on Monday, 7/28 at noon PDT.

U.S. residents only.

Cheap, Unsafe Knockoff Toys:
Not Fun For Your Junk

0

by Kate M.

nope

In the “ew, no” news of the day, counterfeit versions of name-brand sex toys are being sold on sites like Amazon and Ebay, and many of them are made of unsafe materials.

In a statement to XBIZ, Peter Phinney, co-founder of the anti-piracy organization Porn Guardian, explained how these knockoffs end up online:

“Occasionally we find a seller who has a wholesale distribution agreement with the manufacturer but is violating the terms of that agreement, occasionally we find a seller who is simply manufacturing knock-offs in a factory in China, and occasionally we find a seller who is using the brand and its reputation to sell merchandise that is not even offered by the company at all, but their trademark name is being used for its marketing value alone.”

Ick. If you want to avoid questionable toys, avoid the ones being sold at well below their regular retail prices. (Apparently, those discounts are too good to be true.) Or just buy your toys from a reputable retailer.

5 Sex Toys We’d Like To See

by Kate M.

daydreaming

We’re just a day away from the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME), where we’ll get to see all of the exciting new products that the sex industry has dreamed up this year. In anticipation of the happy event, we’ve started to fantasize about what we wish we could see at ANME. Here’s what we keep coming back to:

1. The dream machine: a massager as strong as a Magic Wand Original (the artist formerly known as the Hitachi), waterproof, and with the Magic Wand’s reasonable price point. Update: Also, it would have to be cordless, obviously, because we like being alive. 

2. More stuff in bold, non-pink colors, like the blue Fun Factory Amorino.

3. A silicone version of that one jelly rubber butt plug we used to have that melted during a heat wave and we cried for days.

4. A steam-powered vibrator, for ultimate hipster cred.

5. Sex robots that appreciate humanity too much to overthrow it.
