7 sex toys I want to try in 2017

2016 was kind of a shit show, and I didn’t try as many new toys as I’d like, but here’s to hoping this year is better–let’s start with a list of the top 7 toys I’m dying to try in 2017!

1. B.J. Dildo–Some of you may know of or remember Mr. Man, a dildo with a hole through the shaft that creates clit suction during a dildo blow job. It’s been discontinued for years now, but I was lucky enough to try Epiphora‘s last year, and it was marvelous. I loved it so much that I had my partner try to recreate it by drilling a hole into one of my less used dildos, but sadly it didn’t pan out. But alas, there’s a new B.J. Dildo now! And it comes in a lovely green! Someone just buy me one and attach it to my clit now, please and thanks.

 

2. Hitachi Magic Wand Rechargeable–The fact that I don’t have one of these yet is a travesty. I am one of the BIGGEST Hitachi fans out there, and I think the only reason I don’t have one yet is because I’m kinda old school, and the ancient plug-in Hitachi is still my bae. But I would like to get with the times and be able to share the Hitachi’s glory with others (the rechargeable has a silicone head), or bring it camping (I don’t really camp but if I ever do Hitachi will definitely need to come), and just use the new one’s lower settings (or would I even? who knows.) Plus my Hitachi is getting kind of lonely and could use some company.

 

3. Hole Punch Rad-ish— I’ve been wanting to try something from Hole Punch for a while now, and I want it to be the rad-ish because I’m vegan af and want to collect all of the veggie sex toys (and because Piph said the Plugs Bunny is too long, and yea, it looks too long.) Is it ridiculous if I say my butt is hungry for the rad-ish?

 

4. Fucking Sculptures Double Trouble–I honestly don’t know if I could even handle this dildo but damn I want to try, especially after how much Kate and other friends have raved about it. And I need more glass in my collection! And more big toys so I can work my way up and hopefully be able to fit the huge dildo I made last year in my vagina someday.

 

5. L’Amourose Prism V— I was sent the similar Prism VII last year, and it’s rumbly and gorgeous, but I want the version without the clitoral arm and also want to compare the two. Plus I just want more L’Amourose toys because they’re amazing.

 

6. Leyland Rainbow Glitter Riding Crop–Ever since I saw Artemisia’s review (and photos, damn just go look now for eyegasms), I’ve wanted this crop. It’s synthetic/vegan friendly and it’s so damn pretty. And I used to have a crop years ago that I loved which got ruined and want to replace it. Plus rainbow sparkles!

 

7. Split Peaches Unicorn Horn— It’s a rainbow unicorn horn dildo. Need I say more?

Also, I didn’t include some toys I’m still lusting over from my 2015 list because I didn’t want to be repetitive but I SO SO SO still want the SeductionEleven, G-Spoon, & Shilo.

Which toys are you dying to try in 2017? Let me know in the comments!

Toy with me Tuesday

Addicted

Yesterday, someone found my blog by searching for the term “does Hitachi ruin sex life?” I got these kinds of “how will sex toys affect my sex life” questions and comments frequently when I worked at the sex shop, from straight up ones like “will this vibrator make me go numb eventually?” to the more subtle “I want something small so I don’t scare him” to the snide boyfriend’s “that better not replace me” remark. My least favorite ones were the curious but nervous friends that would say judgmental things like “I don’t need one, I have a boyfriend” while their friends purchased a new vibrator.

Everyone’s sexual preferences are different, and there is no “correct” way to get off. Although I can get off (clitorally) without toys, I love the quick, powerful orgasms my Hitachi gives me. And I can’t have a gushing g-spot orgasm without a good toy or someone else’s help (hand cramp anyone?) But who cares? I certainly don’t, and I’m thankful for my boyfriend’s thick fingers and hard toys with specially designed curved tips. There’s nothing wrong with wanting or needing a sex toy. And as far as replacing my partner? Can a vibrator pull my hair, pinch my nipples, or spank my ass? How about listen to my breathing and moans and respond accordingly? No.

My point is, there’s nothing wrong with using sex toys or whatever sexual exploration you choose. If you can’t get off without a vibrator, so what? If you can give yourself a screaming orgasm with only your hand, or with your mind, or with multiple partners, or by staring at photos of feet while you tickle your asshole, good for you. I won’t judge your sex life, as long as it’s safe and consensual.  Like I said before, there’s no wrong way to get off, unless you have a problem with it. And if you truly find yourself feeling a harmful “addiction” to vibration or less sensitive, all you have to do is stop using vibration for awhile or even switch to a lower setting, and you’ll soon regain your sensitivity (Getting Off.) This has never happened to me though, and I’ve been using jack-hammer powered plug in vibrators for 9 years now…

and guess what? I’m proud to be a Hitachi “addict.”

Sinful Sunday

Jake has his toys, and I have mine. Sometimes, we share.

Although I occasionally take out my toys just to see what kinds of artsy photos I can come up with, I mainly photograph my toys for reviews purposes. So I was excited when I heard about Nymphomanic Ness’ new feature Toy With Me Tuesday because it gives me an excuse (and hopefully a weekly reminder) to play around with sex toy imagery. This week is the 1st ever Toy With Me Tuesday; click below to see who else is playing and to join us.

Toy with me Tuesday

Review: Hitachi Magic Wand

The 1st sex toy I ever owned was a plug-in back massager that my boyfriend bought me in high school before we were old enough to shop in a sex store. I loved that toy; it was my first masturbation partner. I kept it in a bag under my bed, and I pulled it out from its hiding place after my family went to sleep, when I could finally have a little privacy. It was quick and easy, strong enough that I could use it over my panties and even pajama pants, so not only did I get off quickly, but I also didn’t have to worry about cleaning it often, which was important since I shared a bathroom with my little sister. I kept that toy for years, and ever since I parted with it, I’ve wanted a new trusty plug-in to replace it.

Ever since I started learning about sex toys, I knew I wanted to try the Hitachi and hoped it would be a good replacement for my old beloved plug-in. The fact that it’s a “retro” toy that’s been around since the 70’s only added to its appeal. I bought the Hitachi a few months ago, and I have used it more than any other sex toy I currently own. The Hitachi is a white, foot long plug in electric massager with a 2” long soft flexible vibrating head and a 5’10’’ cord. It has 2 speeds controlled by a flip switch which I would classify as strong and ridiculously strong, or “I’m going to come now” and “I’m going to come again and again now.”

My favorite way to use the Hitachi is when masturbating with my panties on. I’ve used the Hitachi during sex before, but it’s too strong to use directly on my clit comfortably, so I don’t use it during partner sex often. One exception to that is anal sex; I like using the Hitachi during anal because it provides me with immediate orgasms that help me relax and make anal penetration enjoyable. Since I don’t like using the Hitachi directly on my clit, I usually place it behind a pillow (not under though since it can cause overheating).

Care for the Hitachi is easy for me since I don’t use it directly on my body; I use soap and water with a wash cloth (when unplugged of course) as needed.  The head is made of vinyl and is porous, so I it can’t be sterilized, and I don’t recommend sharing the Hitachi with multiple partners. Since it’s a plug in, the Hitachi is obviously not waterproof. Its instruction manual comes with a list of 8 dangers and 16 warnings mainly related to keeping the Hitachi from getting wet or overheating, for example, “Never operate for more than 25 minutes” and “never leave unattended while plugged in.” The Hitachi comes with a one year limited warranty, so keep your receipt and original packaging in case you need to send it back to Vibratex, Inc.

I love my Hitachi, and with its help I can come in 30 seconds to few minutes and have multiple subsequent orgasms. Not only is it an awesome sex toy, but it’s also a legit body massager, and it feels great on my neck and shoulders when I’m sore from working out or whatever else.

I definitely recommend the Hitachi if you want a super strong clitoral toy, an aid to anal play, or a legit body massager. The Hitachi has given me and many others countless orgasms and stress relief. The only complaint I have is that I wish the cord was a few feet longer because it’s not quite long enough for me to use on the couch while watching porn. I’ve actually ended up lying on the floor with it when I’m set on a Hitachi/porn combo though. The Hitachi is also a loud toy, so if you’re trying to be discreet (I’m not), then the Hitachi isn’t a wise choice. There are also various Hitachi attachments, which I haven’t tried yet but would like to.

On a last note, I want to add that a couple told me they’ve been through various Hitachis because the woman is a frequent squirter which caused her to damage and ruin the toy(s). I’ve also had other customers tell me they have had plug-in toys start smoking and even start a fire, and although the complaints I’ve heard were about a different toy, I’m sure the same things can happen with the Hitachi, so take the warning and instructions in the manual seriously and read them carefully before use.
