Adult Toys – A Gift Guide!

Posted on September 16, 2017 in Uncategorized

It’s only natural for us to want to share the things we love, enjoy and go wild over with our friends and loved ones! Toys can put a spring in your step and a shine on your day… so why not share that spring an shine with a friend? Today we check out the who, what, where and when of adult toys as gifts.

Who Should I Give a Toy Gift to?

Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), there are some people that it just isn’t appropriate to give adult toys to! Your gift recipients could be:

  • Your boyfriend
  • Your girlfriend
  • A very close female friend (for girls)
  • A reasonably close friend as a group gift at hen’s parties, etc

Note that if you’re a girl buying for your boyfriend, it will be just as much of a gift for him to see you using a toy that you enjoy, as buying one specifically for him to use!

Which Toys Make Good Gifts?

Every toy might be fun to use, but not all make good gifts! Match your present to your audience with the following suggestions:

For boyfriends: Avoid anything that will make him feel insecure (penis pumps, cock rings, enormous oversized dildos, etc). Anal toys for him or you can be great buys to help you explore new frontiers together; remote control vibrators can also be fabulous fun for boys. If you want to buy something that’s technically for you, but he gets to enjoy the ‘benefits’ of, why not try lingerie, a Rabbit vibe or edible underwear.

For girlfriends: There are many, man toys out there, and a hundred different ways that you could expand the horizons of a previously vanilla-style girl. However, if you’re buying a toy as a surprise for your girlfriend, you should stick to what you already know she likes. If she hasn’t tried adult toys before, simple egg vibrators or dildos can help ease her into the idea. Alternatively, grab some lingerie for guys, a video on a topic you know she’s interested in, or a board game where sex is the prize!

For close female friends:Buy her something that she’d never get for herself – an extravagant vibrator/dildo combination, something to enjoy with her partner, or some luxurious lubes and lotions!

As hen’s party gifts: Though it seems a waste, not all the sex toy gifts given at hen’s parties will actually be used! Sometimes they are for laughs… and very effective at achieving that goal too. Grab something enormous and gaudily coloured, and watch the group explode with laughter.

When and Where Are Toys Appropriate Gifts?

For partners, the best place to actually give a toy gift is obviously the privacy of your own home! For close girlfriends, keep it private too – you might want to leave the box with her, so she doesn’t think you’re making a pass. That could be awkward.

Adult toys definitely no longer have to be something to be kept in the shadows – share the shine in your day and the spring in your step!

How to Clean Your Adult Toys Properly

Posted on September 15, 2017 in Uncategorized

When you finish using your adult toys, you need to spend a few minutes cleaning your them to prevent germs clustering and multiplying. The last thing you want is a trip to the hospital because you have an infection from using a dirty vibrator. That one is kind of hard to explain to your relatives who want to know why you are in the hospital!

It is quite simple to take care of your ladies sex toys, especially your vibrator. If you purchase a waterproof vibrator, it is even easier. You can simply wash your vibrator in warm water. Give it a thorough cleansing in warm, soapy water. Always finish off the cleaning with a thorough wipe over using antibacterial wipes. However, if you do not have a waterproof vibrator, you still need to get your vibrator clean.

Take a tissue and wipe off the obvious places where lubricant, jelly, or your vaginal discharge can collect on your toy. You may need several tissues to clean it. Next, use a damp cloth to wipe over the toy. Make sure the cloth is not too damp or is not dripping wet, especially if your vibrator is not waterproof. You may want to dampen just a corner of a cloth and use the section next to that corner to wipe over your adult sex toy.

If you have a sex toy that has movable parts, or attachments you can disconnect, make sure you wipe the it in all the areas by moving the parts or disconnecting the attachments and wiping them separately. You do not want to miss cleaning any part of your ladies sex toy.

Finally, use antibacterial wipes to wipe over every part of your vibrator. The antibacterial wipes will remove any germs or bacteria on your vibrator that could grow if left in a warm place, such as a sock or underwear drawer.

Before you put your toy away for use next time, you need to make sure it is completely dry. Putting away a wet or even slightly moist sex toy will give any bacteria a perfect breeding environment, and this is just what you need to prevent.

When you store your sex toy, it is best to put it in a box or a plastic bag. This will prevent cross contamination and dust settling on the toy in your drawer. If you have an airtight container, that will be the best storage place for your adult sex toy.

Remember that you use your sex toys or ladies vibrators in the most intimate places in your body and you do not want to cause yourself an infection by using a dirty or dusty sex toy. Regular cleaning and good storage of your sex toy will prevent any disasters. You will have your vibrator ready to use whenever you need it.

Vibrators and How to Clean Them

Posted on September 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

Vibrators provide an enormous amount of pleasure for many people. A common problem that is often overlooked when buying a vibrator, especially expensive ones, is how well they are looked after when the fun is over.

As there are many vibrators to choose from, there may be different ways in which they need to be cared for. However, they generally need to be looked after properly – to keep them in good condition so that they work seamlessly for you and do not run the risk of building up unwanted bacteria which can be harmful to your sensitive areas.

First you need to clean the outside of your vibrators, immediately after use. The amount of bacteria that can be left on them could be damaging to you, so the best thing is to get a simple cloth (like a wash cloth) which should be clean and never used before and dampen it with warm water and a chemical free soap or something similar. The reason I say chemical free is because many people are sensitive to soap on the genital area which can leave traces on your vibrators causing irritation to you on the next use. Scrub off any visible residue, ensuring you clean all the little creases and crevices of your toy.

If you only have a regular soap which may contain certain chemicals and don’t want to run out and buy specific soap just for your vibrators, then just make sure you remove all the soap residue with warm water and your cloth so that there are no traces left. This is a good tip, because soap is one of the main causes of yeast infections when used in the vaginal region.

If you are really good and like to be very hygienic, then invest in a vibrator cleaning fluid which is designed specifically for vibrators use. You can get these anywhere online and usually from the same place you bought the vibrators in the first place. They do not cost much and are a great way of disinfecting your toys on a regular basis. They are used to clean the inside of your vibrators so if your vibrator is waterproof then you wont have as big a problem. If it is not waterproof then use the cleaning fluid on the the inside and outside for total cleanliness.

Buy a disinfectant for your vibrators, again from adult toy stores and soak your toy in for a little while. After you have left for a couple of minutes rinse thoroughly and then dry with a towel or clean dry wash cloth.

Lastly, after making sure your toy is clean and ready to be put away, store your vibrators somewhere cool and dark, like a drawer or wardrobe, or even under the bed (not if you have pets that like to rummage!) To keep them cool and in great working order. You pay good money for your vibrators and experience wonderful pleasure from them, so to look after them properly is a worthy action on your part to keep them buzzing happily for a long time to come!
