So last January I made my first sex toy to-do list. It was adorable. My site was about 6 months old and frankly, I knew NOTHING! I’m amazed that there are as many decent toys on it as there are. If you told me then how many toys I would end up testing and owning over the course of 2013 I would never have believed you. Anyway, I accomplished almost everything on that list (the sex swing and the wooden toy didn’t happen) and frankly, went on to even more exciting stuff. Now I’m looking forward to trying new stuff in 2014. Here’s what I have in mind:
So, I never tried the previous incarnations of We-Vibes but they always looked a bit big and the silicone seemed a bit sticky and frankly I never actually trusted the “you can wear it during intercourse” premise for those reasons. When I saw the We-Vibe 4 and saw that it had addressed literally every concern I had ever had my first thought was “Yes, please!”
I used to think the idea of special “sex furniture” sounded a bit absurd, I have since realized that I was very, very wrong. Time and again I’ve tried to use pillows only to see them flatten uselessly while I end up with muscle cramps¹. It’s time to bring out the big guns. I want to try a Liberator.
I have long been enamored by Nobessence. I mentioned that the wood dildo from last year’s list didn’t happen and, while I still think that one is intriguing, Epiphora tells me this is a better pick. As ‘Piph tends to be the authority on all things sex toy, I’m taking her word for it.
I know, it seems like a weird addition and I’m not giving you a picture or product link, so, what’s the deal? Well, fire play recently became part of my repertoire (I geek out about sex, I met someone who geeks out about fire… it was bound to happen) and, in a turn of events that surprised no one more than me, I love it. Coincidentally one of my favorite pieces from this year’s HUMP! festival was called “Fun with Fire” and flash cotton figures heavily into it. My firebug friend and I are quite intrigued.
Spareparts makes amazing harnesses. This one is insanely sexy as well as functional. I kind of love it… and think the red would look awesome on me ;-)
Crystal Delights Yarn Minx Tail
So, Crystal Delights is awesome, right? They make tails that are awesome, right? They make these ones here, or will soon or something like that and I am obsessed with them. They are gorgeous. They are not yet available in stores (I think?) but I covet them.
I’m curious about dildos that I can have in me while using on someone else and the Share is the one that has most caught my eye. The shape, the texture and the size seem kind of perfect.
I have a hybrid lube I adore and a silicone lube I love, the thing that is missing from my arsenal is a good, thick water-based lube. My criteria are that it be free of glycerin, parabens and propylene glycol. The thing is, I have tried the obvious choice – Sliquid Sassy and it’s not quite right for me… I think I’m going to try the other Sliquid options. I’m also open to suggestion.
Whatever Fun Factory comes up with next
Last year they rocked my world with the Stronic line and according to what I heard at ANME there is more awesome coming. I don’t know what it is but I know I’m going to want to check it out.
So, that’s it. I’ll keep you guys posted as to how it goes during 2014!
