Shopping for the perfect pleasure products... October 16 2016
Don’t go into your search completely blind. There are a lot of different types of pleasure products, materials, features, and functions out there – and you can learn in advance with the world wide web. Know what you’re looking for and what you are not. Here are some common pleasure products and the different materials:
- Vibrators – Vibrating toys that can come in various sizes and shapes with different bumps, ridges, or grooves to enhance your pleasure. There are also combination vibrators (like rabbits) that do clitoral stimulation as well as vaginal vibration, or even bring anal vibration into the mix. These toys are battery operated or rechargeable and usually have speed control and different patterns. Not all vibrators are created equal: some are weak, cheap, light, and buzzy – while others are powerful, strong, and rumbly.
- Dildos – Non-vibrating toys that are primarily for insertion, vaginally or anally. Some are simple and sleek, while others are as realistic as a fake penis can get (sometimes even with balls). They come in all sizes, shapes, and colors and can be made from a variety of materials. The most popular is silicone, but there is also plastic, metal, aluminum, ceramic, and others. There are also jelly, latex, rubber, PVC, TPR, and TPE toys – but these are porous and sometimes toxic, so not recommended.
Side note on body-safe materials: Cheaper toys are often made of jelly and the above latter-mentioned materials. These are often dangerous because of the phthalates and other chemicals used in the process of making the jelly/rubber/ PVC toy. These chemicals can cause immediate irritation, rashes, and discomfort – but also have long-term health effects. Usually, any cheap toy that is made of a soft, jelly-like material is a huge no-no. Silicone is by far the best for most folks, and plastic, metal, aluminum, and ceramic are great alternatives.
- Beads and balls – Ben Wa Balls or vibrating eggs are used to strengthen your kegel muscles for stronger orgasms, and sometimes give a feeling of fullness with gentle stimulation. Ben Wa Balls can be loose or have strings at the end for easier removal after being inserted into the vagina. Similarly, anal beads are inserted into (take a guess) the anus slowly and removed for stimulation, particularly during orgasm.
- Rechargeable vs. Battery operated – Anything that vibrates needs energy. Some vibrators will need batteries or some are completely rechargeable! The rechargeable ones sit on a charging base or have a port that plugs into your wall or USB. Rechargeable vibrator are more expensive but well worth the money. They last much longer, tend to be higher quality, and will end up paying for itself in recharging versus buying batteries.
