History of Sextoys

The basics guide to sex toys for adults:

The Vibrator: This is a toy that vibrates at various speeds, sizes, functions, and when used on the clitoris is one of the easiest ways for a women to reach orgasm.
The Dildo: This is a toy that replicates an erect penis, Dildo’s come in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes. Some materials may include but is not limited to; silicone, glass, jelly, cyberskin, or metal.

The Strap-On: A dildo you can strap to oneself using a harness ( can be regular or g-string like straps) You can strap these to your hips, your thighs, or even your chest to penetrate a partner.
The Butt Plug: The butt plug is a flexible rubber or jelly toy that is inserted into the anus to heighten sexual exploration. I would describe as an anal dildo, although it is smaller in size, bullet like design and has a flared base to keep it from accidentally slipping all the way into the anus. They can be either vibrating plugs or non-vibrating plugs.

Anal Beads: They are plastic or jelly strands of beads that are inserted into the anus, As the person reaches climax the beads are slowly removed from the anus to heighten the effects of the orgasm.

Orgasm Balls: A.K.A Ben Wa Balls, These are balls which are inserted into the vagina and through rocking and vaginal muscle movement can product fabulous orgasms!!
Female Pumps: Also known as clit or tit pumps. These toys come with a suction cup that is either placed over the clitoral area or the nipple. Once a grip has been established a vibrating stimulator is turned on sending pulsating vibes to the designated area.

Lubricants: One goes hand in hand with the other! Whether natural lubrication is an easy effort or not, when it comes to using sexual toys it is a good idea to use a little extra lube. Here’s a brief touch on the topic. Water-based lubricants is probably your best all around lubricant. It doesn’t stain, it is easily cleaned up, it is good with silicone toys and safe with latex toys. The only issue is that it tends to dry up faster so you may have to re-apply if necessary. Silicone Based Lubricant: I great for use with waterproof toys. Keep in mind while silicone based lube work well with latex toys, it will destroy silicone toys. Petroleum-based lubricants are fantastic for anal play. Their thicker consistency makes anal penetration easier, on the not so good side be precautious as these lubricants will eat away at any latex based product (condoms, diaphragms) so be sure to plan properly how you would like to lubricate yourself.

Dildos: Dildos are perfect for those who like something a little more realistic about their sex toys. If you are looking for some sort of internal stimulation to orgasm, then dildos would be a more ideal toy for you. They can hit your G-spot perfectly when angled right, and most dildos are designed to give you a more generally satisfying feeling of fullness, and perhaps feel good when gently moved in and out. Dildos come with a suction cup base – for hands free play! These can be suctioned to bathtub sides, in the shower, hardwood floors and even headboards. You’ll have to take in consideration for yourself which type of dildo would be right for your or for your partner, the following is some helpful dildo information to take into consideration.

Dildos In Culture It may have not been discussed at the dinner table, however the dildos being used in history have been pictured…
As far back as 1906 lithographs have depicted dildos in culture, two women using dildos are shown in “De Figuris Veneris” which means “On the Figures of Venus” this typical art work was an anthology of ancient Greek and ancient Roman writings on erotic topics, discussed objectively and classified and grouped by subject matter.
A classicist and feminist named Page Du Bois suggested that dildos were present in Greek art because the ancient Greek male imagination found it difficult to conceive of sex taking place without penetration. Therefore female masturbation or sex between women required an artificial phallus to be used.  (bi-sexual activity)

A Simple Break Down of Dildo Toys:
With the help of technology today  dildo makers can offer a wide variety of toys for us to thrust away with, These dildos come in many shapes, sizes and colors and the uses vary as well. Here are the basics.

Realistic Dildos: These dildos look and feel like the real thing. The color and shape are exact (some even have details right down to the main vain.) Many of these dildos are mold of actual penises, some, cast right from the cock of male porn stars like “Mr. Marcus”.

Penis Extenders: Made for the man who has difficulty getting it up or getting an erection at all. These dildos are commonly known as Prosthetic Penis Attachments and are made of hollowed out vinyl with an elastic strap. He slips in, puts the strap around his waist and is able to penetrate his partner successfully.

Anal Dildos: Can be butt plugs, or anal plugs. These dildos are smaller and flared at the end so that they can fit into your rectum and not get lost up there. It takes some time to wiggle a butt plug in, but once it is in place it feels ooo soooo gooood. Take your time and lube up since the anus doesn’t expand when aroused.

G-Spot / P-Spot Dildos: These dildos are curved or have a kink in them so that they hit just the right spot. Smooth and designed to make you sing out joy! G-Spot | P-Spot dildo will never leave you unsatisfied.

Double Dildos: This is a longer dildo, and has a head on both sides. It is perfect for two person pleasure or if the spine is bendable you can experience double penetration all by yourself.

Strap On Dildos: Usually used in accordance with Harnesses. These are basically dildos that are attached to a piece of material resembling a jock strap or bikini thong. Strap around your waist and legs secure the material to the wearer and there is a hold and ring that secure the dildo in front. Perfect for role play, and lesbian action.

Chin Dildo: Your man or woman straps the device on over their head and it rest right below the mouth. While you getting orally served the accommodator dildo penetrates for stimulation of two places at once.

Dildo Ball: A clever device that might remind you of the exercise ball at the gym with one distinct difference. This inflatable ball has a dildo on top so you can ride with the ball in between your legs without banging your privates on hard surface. The squishy ball is also fun to bounce up and down on.

Dildos Materials

Rubber: Dating back to the original idea of creating rubber erect penises, rubber dildos usually incorporated a steel spring for stiffness, they became available in the 1940’s. As it turns out this was less than satisfactory because of the potential for serious injury from cuts from the spring when the rubber finally cracked and came apart.

PVC & Jelly Rubber: These types of sex toys used to be considered as problematic. When PVC was first introduced they contained unsafe phthalates, which are softeners that were added to many plastics and were also found in jewelry, food containers, and other soft rubber toys. Phthalates have been linked to problems such as cancer, and prenatal defects. Now, high end PVC sex toys are Phthalate free (elastomers takes the place of that old materials) they are soft and pliable yet hard enough to feel great. Keep in mind PVC toys are porous and they are not as durable as most sex toys made today, being cautious with this material as it cannot be sterilized. Manufacturers recommend using condoms with these types of toys if the user is sharing. Easy to clean with soap and water or anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner. Can be used with Water-based or Silicone-based Lubricant.

Silicone Rubber: Since the 1990’s silicone rubber dildos became more popular, these dildos are easier to clean, and have the characteristics plastic aroma of PVC. Silicone holds body heat well, and is an excellent conductor of vibrations and subtle movement. Silicone is also a robust material that can be sterilized by boiling or bleaching (10% bleach, 90% water). You can also use warm water and soap, or anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner. These toys can be used with Water based lubricant only, as Silicone based lubricant will cause an adhesive reaction, which results in destruction of that toy.

Chrome Plated Steel: Users prefer them for their hardness and firmness, durability, electrical conductance and low friction. They can also be used to exercise vaginal PC muscles. Steel dildos may be warmed or cooled in water before use to elicit a range of temperature sensations, it may also retain body heat of the user. To be used in conjunction with water based, silicone based or oil based lubricant. Because steel has a polished nonporous surface, it may be sterilized in boiling water.

Glass: Glass dildos has similar features to steel ones, most glass is made with Pyrex (A.K.A Borosilicate glass) which is commonly used for bakeware, cookware, and other durable glass materials. Now, depending on the Manufacturer, glass sex toys like steel ones, may be used to apply firmer pressure than silicone can to a female’s G-spot or male’s prostate gland. They are nonporous and can be sterilized in the dishwasher which makes them ideal for people who find themselves susceptible to allergic reactions from latex and rubber toys. They are also heat absorbent, you can simple pre heat the dildo in warm-hot water before play time, or allow your body heat to warm the toy, as well you can freeze or chill glass for a whole other sensation. However, unlike any other sex toy available, glass sex toys can be personalized with inscriptions. The best lubricant for all types of toys is Water-based, But Oil and Silicone lubes work just as well.

Cyberskin: Is made from synthetic material that feels just like human skin. It is a porous material and cannot be sterilized. After wash, you will find that the toy may feel sticky, add a dust of cornstarch to prolong the life of your toy. Cyberskin toys are more prone to rips and tears than silicone dildos due to delicate material. If you own a cyberskin toy, the best way to keep it clean, wash with soap and water, or a toy cleaner, make sure you let the toy dry thoroughly, dust on a layer of cornstarch or cybernew and store in a soft pouch in such as a linen drawer or anywhere dark and cool. Cyberskin’s are best in enjoyed with Water-based lubricants. Silicone-based or Oil-based lubricants may break down the toys material.

Vibrators Vibrators are devices used to stimulate the body and skin for relaxing and pleasurable feeling. However, some vibrators are designed to ergonomically stimulate erogenous zone for erotic stimulation. If you are female or have a female partner, a vibrator is the toy most likely to make the biggest difference to your sex life. For many women, they have their first orgasm with a vibrator, and most women find it easier to reach orgasm with a vibrator then by any other way, Furthermore, most women cannot reach orgasm through intercourse alone (this is due to how the female body is constructed, don’t sweat it) Similar to dildos vibrators come in a variety of lengths and girths. Some are smaller for beginner use and are unintimidating due to their non-phallic appearance. So, if you’re a male with a female partner and think it would be sexy and hot for her to have an orgasm while you having intercourse, a vibrator could be the best present you could get.

History of Vibrators: For centuries doctors had been treating women for a wide variety of illnesses by performing what is now recognized as masturbation. The pelvic massage was especially common in the treatment of female hysteria during the Victorian era, as the point of such manipulation was to cause “hysterical paroxysm” (orgasm) in the patient. Not only did they regard the “vulvular stimulation” required as having nothing to do with sex, but reportedly found it time consuming and hard work!?
One of the first vibrators was a steam-powered device called “Manipulator” this machine was rather awkward device, but was still heralded as some relief for the doctors who found themselves suffering from fatigued wrists and hands. Dr Joseph Mortimer Granville patented the first “electromechanical” vibrator, after that in 1902 Hamilton Beach company patented the first electrical vibrator available for retail sale, this made the vibrator the fifth domestic appliance to be electrified, after the sewing machine, fan, kettle, or toaster, and approximately a decade before the vacuum, or electric iron!!
Due to sexual revolution of the 1960’s, the vibrator demand was as strong as ever, Therefore on June 30th 1966 Jon H. Tavel applied for a patent for the “Cordless Electric Vibrator - for Use on Human Body” which ushered the modern personal vibrator. In actuality the patent application referenced an earlier patent dating back to 1938, for a flashlight with a shape that left little doubt as to possible alternate use. The cordless vibrator was patented on March 28, 1968, and was soon followed by such improvements as multi-speed and one piece construction, which in result made it cheaper to manufacture and easier to clean.

Types of Vibrators:

Outlet Powered Vibrators: If you choose to buy only one vibrator, consider one that used an electrical outlet rather than batteries: they last longer and they never run out of power just as you’re about to have an orgasm, and since they’re made by mainstream electronic companies and sold in everyday stores you don’t even have to be embarrassed if someone else finds it. (yes, some people still use them for their aching feet and backs) To date, of all the outlet powered vibrators, the preferred choice is still the Hitachi Magic Wand. In comparison to other plug-in models the wand is easier to use during sex with a partner, it’s easier to put a condom over the end in case someone else wants to use it, and the optional penetrative attachments that you can get for it are higher quality. If the vibrations are a little too intense for you bare clit, use it through panties, sheets or a thin towel. If you want to go for multiple clitoral orgasms, then after the first one, back off on the pressure while keeping the vibrator moving, avoiding direct contact with your clit until your arousal level builds again. Moving your hips while using your vibrator (and squeezing and relaxing your PC muscles) in time with your breathing, is something else that can enhance your whole experience. If you want to use your vibrator during intercourse with a partner, you’ll probably find that “doggy style” position is the most convenient position to the vibrator in.

Battery Powered Vibrators: Even if the electric powered vibrator is one of your favorites, you should still consider picking up and separate battery powered vibrator. The smallest of them ca easily be kept in purse, you can use them more discreetly and spontaneously, they may be more convenient for partner sex if you and your partner like to change positions a lot, obviously you can use them when you’re not near an electrical outlet, and some of them can be used in or near water (which is nice if that is the only place you can have some privacy.) At the top of the tips list. Make sure you have spare batteries, and the batteries are removed when not in action!

Types of Erotic Vibrators

Clitoral: Often sold as “back massagers”. The clitoral vibrator is a sex toy used to provide sexual pleasure and to enhance orgasm by stimulating the clitoris. Although most of the vibrators available can be used as clitoral vibrators, they may have special designs and models that would not resemble a vibrator. They commonly come in small sizes and in a variety of colors, textures and shapes. The most common type of clitoral vibrator is small, egg-shaped and attached to a multi-speed battery pack by a long cord. Variations of this kind are in all sorts, narrower, bullet-shaped vibes, and vibrators shaped like cats, bunnies, bears, dewdrops, miniature rockets, and large human tongues. Egg shaped vibrators can be used for stimulation of the clitoris or insertion into the vagina they get their name due to their shape, based on their specific shape they are called either egg vibrators or bullet vibrators. They are considered discreet sex toys as they do not measure more than 3 inches in length and ¾ inches in width. So, regardless of the design one chooses. The main function of the clitoral vibrator is mainly the same. Offering vibrations at varying speeds and intensities.

G-Spot: OOO… ooo. OH! Similar to the traditional vibrator but with a curve and often a soft jelly-like coating. The curve makes it easier to use to stimulate and penetrate the G-Spot or Prostate. This type of vibrator is more curved towards the tip and it is made of materials such as silicone or acrylic. It also comes in different colors, shapes and sizes and it can be used with or without vibrations. Many users though state that vibrations enhance the sensations during G-Spot or Prostate stimulation. However, they are recommended to be used with a significant amount of lubricants, especially when used to provoke sexual pleasure in men.

Waterproof: These types of vibrators can be used wet, such as in the shower. Although marketed as waterproof, most should not be submerged. The ones designed for underwater usage may be used in the swimming pool, bath or shower or any other wet place The waterproof vibrators are recommended to be used with a water compatible lubricant such as silicone based lubricant (be sure that is it not a silicone material toy). One is advised to check the battery pack to make sure it is not defective before using the vibrator underwater. Keep in mind that these vibrators last longer if they are dried after every use and the batteries are kept outside the vibrator when it is not being used.

Rabbit Vibrators: A.K.A “Dual Action” This toy is two pronged for stimulation of both the vagina and the clitoris simultaneously. The rabbit vibrator actually consists of two vibrators of different size. A phallus-like shaped vibrator is intended to be inserted into the vagina to stimulate the vagina, while the smaller clitoral stimulator is placed facing forward onto the main vibrator, some of which resemble a pair of rabbit ears. They are normally made of rubber, jelly, silicone, or latex and they come in a wide variety of colors, sizes and designs and some even have rotating beads, most have varying speeds so you can choose that perfect stimulation, every time!

Pocket Rockets: These vibrators are shaped like a cylinder; one of its ends has some vibrating bulges. It is meant to stimulate the clitoris or nipples, but not for vaginal insertion.  A pocket rocket is a mini-vibrator that is typically about 5 inches long and which resembles a small, travel-sized flashlight, it is a discreet sex toy that may be carried around in one’s purse or briefcase. Specially designed to provide clitoral stimulation and although it is said to be discreet it is not one of the most silent vibrators. However, due to its small dimensions, it is powered by a single battery, and usually only has one speed.

Discreet or Undercover Vibrators: These are vibrators discreetly shaped as everyday objects, such as lipstick tubes, cell phones, or art pieces. This type of vibrator is made of a wide range of materials, shaped and colors. The “undercovers” are usually relatively small enough and most of the time they only have one speed and are powered by a single battery. They tend to copy an exact shape and design of the object they are intended to be mistaken as.

Anal Vibrators: These vibrators are designed for anal use (these toys can be meant for leaving in during sexual intercourse or gradually pulled out for heighten sensations). They have either a flared base or a long handle to grip, to prevent them from slipping inside and becoming lodged in the rectum. Anal vibrators come in different shaped but they are commonly butt plugs or phallus-like vibrators. They are recommended to be used with a significant amount of lubricant and to be inserted gently and carefully to prevent any potential damage to the rectal lining.

Hands free or Butterfly Vibrators: Hands free simply means that a smaller vibrator which may consist of a small shaft to insert, clitoral stimulators and a variety of speeds, that can be strapped to leg and waist and placed perfectly into position, or simply inserted and resting on the outer erogenous zone, for hands free clitoral stimulation during sexual intercourse. This can consist of the “Butterfly” or “We Vibes”. It comes in three variations: Traditional, remote control, and with anal and/or vaginal stimulators. They are generally made of silicone, plastic, latex or jelly.

Multispeed: Multispeed vibrators allow users to customize how fast the vibrator’s pulsing or massaging movements occur. Depending on the specific type of vibrator, the speed change is made by simply pushing a button a certain number of times, allowing the user to change speed several time throughout the usage. With the appropriate size, the multispeed vibrator can be used for clitoral, anal or vaginal stimulation.

Triple Action Vibrators: These vibrators are designed to stimulate three erogenous zones simultaneously or independently. Providing stimulation to vagina, clitoris and anal regions.
