Not phallic: Fabulous! Not a vagina: Still feels fine(a)!

Yesterday I read an article on MSNBC about a sex shop in Bahrain. It was really fascinating to read about how this little shop is thriving in the Middle East. According to the store’s owner, sex toys are permitted in Islamic law between married couples as long as they don’t replicate “sensitive parts of the body” (I’m going to go ahead and assume she means genitals) but things like vibrating rings are ok. She says she hasn’t really had any trouble from the people and the government (a few things get tangled in customs), and it’s certainly refreshing to hear about sexuality and pleasure discussed openly, in any country.

Of course, we love our Shafts and Fleshlights like crazy here at The Pleasure Chest, but there are a lot of great toys that are more… discreet.

The newest of which are Tenga products from Japan, which look like bottles of lotion or shampoo but house a remarkably realistic and sensual-feeling masturbation sleeve, pre-lubed and ready to go. Sticking my finger in one of those things is right up there with waiting in line at Coachella on my “Times I Wish I Had a Penis” list.

Then there’s the new Better Than Chocolate vibrator by Nomi Tang. This luxury vibe feels smooth and silky in the hand, with an ergonomic shape (in your face, carpal tunnel!) and easy-to-use touch-sensitive controls. That’s right, the speeds go up and down and even lock with a swipe of your finger. It’s an iPad for your clit! Love.

Also, while I fully advocate sex toys for non-coupled (and non-married) people, it should be noted that both of these toys can be fun for two as well. Give your hand-jobs a hand with the Tenga sleeves, or nestle Better Than Chocolate between two bodies for simultaneous sensations. Fun for everyone!
