We're revisiting by way of reposting a link to this great little post by BuzzFeed's Anna Borges to help you get your toy prepped for sexy new year.
Sex toys are awesome and an excellent addition to your sex life, both solo and with a partner. But sex toys also become a lot less awesome if you don't care for them properly.
Not washing your toy, using the wrong lube, or storing it incorrectly can all lead to problems, whether that's a shorter life span or distortion of your toy or a risk of an infection for you. Which, no thanks. BuzzFeed Life talked to Claire Cavanah, co-founder of Babeland and co-author of Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex, for her best tips for keeping your sex toys safe, in good shape, and running as long as possible.
Meet the lovely sex toy reviewer, Kinky Kitten Kim:
"I go by the name KinkyKittenKim. I am in my twenties and I am a mother . I have a very understanding husband, we’ve been together for 7 years. I have always had a passion for sex toys and they tend to take up most of my time. Instead of boring my family about how great some sex toys are I thought id make a blog and write about them for people to read. It was mainly due to encouragement from my husband to start up a blog."
If that bio alone wasn't enough to charm us, flattery certainly was. Kim reviewed our Zoro® strap-on and loved it, so we thought we'd share a few highlights and then send you on to the full review, complete with Kim's own photos. Just below this gorgeous composite image of three Zoro® models are few glistening nuggets from her Zoro® review:
"I love the fact the wearer can still wear the Zoro® Strap-on and still be able to be stimulated, gone are the days where a strap on covers your whole pubic area and blocks access to your genitals."
"The dildo itself is a lovely black matte finish silicone that is firm. The shaft is none phallic, the bottom of the shaft is quite slim this expands up to a slightly curved bulbous tip. During use this tip is able to provide great G spot or Prostate stimulation the angle is just perfect!"
In their December issue, UK magazine QXMEN interviews Perfect Fit Brand CEO Steve Callow in a popping full page feature in which Steve tell how he got into the sex toy biz and drops a few fun nuggets such as...
"This idea for a travelling douche had been in mind for some time. As a travelling consultant for many years I had to improvise a lot. I had finally developed my own kit–one that wouldn’t set off the airport scanners!"
"I was always into toy play, and started that at a very early age (I made a dildo when I was 12 or 13 out of wax!). My mind was always very mechanical so I was always trying to make something to get off!"
He also talks about the innovative, but neccessary new sexual health product, "The Bumper" (yes, there is such a thing as a dick that's too long!) and the insanely fun "Fun Boy" packer from the Buck Angel® FTM line of products on which he and Buck collaborate.
This hot new sex toy provides more “cushion for the pushin’”…literally. Industry innovator Perfect Fit Brand Inc. has launched its design for the The Bumper™, the first-ever adult product that cushions deep thrusts during intercourse, providing more passionate sex without restraint.
Receiving Partners who express discomfort during intercourse with a partner may find pleasure in the Bumper™’s ability to make sex more enjoyable within their comfort zone. Penetrating Partners will still have the feeling of full insertion and intimate contact with their partner without having to hold back. For women, this also acts as a sexual health tool to lessen the chances of a bruised cervix.
