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.

Toy Cleaning & HPV: a PSA

0

by Kate M.

toy cleaner

A new study from the Indiana University School of Medicine examined the possibility of spreading HPV through shared sex toys. The results are mostly unsurprising, but very worth reading. They had twelve women each provide vaginal samples and samples from two different vibrators – one made of thermoplastic elastomer and the second made of silicone – just after use, just after cleaning with soap, and after 24 hours. Here, we’ll break the results down for you. The percentages refer to the number of samples in which HPV was detected.

Vaginal samples: 75%

Vibrator 1 (thermoplastic elastomer)
After use: 89%
After cleaning: 56%
After 24 hours: 40%

Vibrator 2 (silicone)
After use: 67%
After cleaning: 44%
After 24 hours: None

Okay, let’s review what we’ve learned!

1) Elastomer toys (and, we can assume, other porous toys) should not be shared with a partner with whom you’re not fluid bonded (unless you’re using a barrier).

2) It looks like silicone toys are safe to share 24 hours after cleaning, but there’s still a risk of HPV transmission immediately after cleaning.

The second one surprised us, but we’re glad to know it. Now we just have more questions! Were they using hand soap or toy cleaner? Which brand? What would the numbers look like using different kinds of cleaners? Or with several more groups of women?

Isn’t science exciting? Find out more here.

Fish Will Eat Your Sex Toys

by Kate M.

cod and dildo

Bjørn Frilund, a Norwegian fisherman, caught a fish. Inside that fish was a vibrator.

“Fish eat all kinds of different things,” he told The Local. “And the dildo looks like what the fish eat. We have a kind of multi-coloured octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it.” 

What was the vibrator doing in the water in the first place? More importantly, what have we done to deserve this amazing story? If we do more of it, will we hear about a lion who adopts a blow-up doll and raises it as his own?

We’re giving away a Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe, the new, improved version of the beloved toy!

Want to win? Read on!

We really enjoyed The Date Report‘s list of things you can tell about your date based on their favorite book. Some of them were dead-on:

Ulysses: They are still paying off grad school.”

Some made us cringe:

Pride and PrejudiceThey’re all about the happy ending and love Judi Dench movies.”*

Some of them were just silly:

TwilightThey’re (unconsciously) really into Shakespeare.”

Fifty Shades of Grey: They’re really into Twilight, so basically, they’re into Shakespeare. But sexy Shakespeare.”

Now, we want to know about you! In the comments below, tell us what your favorite book says about you, and you’ll be entered to win the Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe.

We’ll pick a winner at random on Tuesday, April 15th at noon PDT.

U.S. residents only. 

 

*Jane Austen wrote satire. Those novels are 5% love story and 95% mean jokes about how stupid and annoying everyone is. Get it together, people. (The Judi Dench thing is probably true, though.)

A Vibe That Makes You Smarter!

We’re proud to announce that soon we’ll be carrying LELO’s innovative new DEXTRÜS vibrator! Responding to research showing that left-handed people are 71% more sexually satisfied that right-handers, LELO set out to correct the imbalance. The result is a vibrator that actually makes you smarter!

According to LELO’s press release:

Every time pressure is applied to DEXTRÜS, its Right-Squeeze™ technology causes whisper-quiet vibrations to travel through the left-arm and stimulate the right-side of the brain, blocking distractions and encouraging smarter, more creative thought.

…Following the ground-breaking revelations that left-handers are more sexually satisfied, LELO suggests right-handers continually squeeze DEXTRÜS with their left-hand during love-making. Every squeeze prompts the touch sensors to emit the same series of powerful vibration patterns that can be applied all over the body, while at the same time allowing users to access a left-hander’s state of mind.

Soon, we won’t be the only business that keep sex toys in the office!

Find out more about the DEXTRÜS here.

Update: In case you haven’t guessed already, LELO was kidding; The DEXTRÜS is not real. You can read more about the elaborate prank here
