Why We Love It: For starters, who wouldn’t love a sex toy that’s squishy like Play-Doh? Soft, yet powerful, the Sakura is unlike any other vibrator I’ve seen. The powder pink oval fits in the palm of your hand, and a small V-shaped notch can hug either your nipples or clit. It’s really a win-win. [$99.00, Good Vibrations] Keep reading »
Despite the fact that Christmas is supposed to be a time filled with cheer and merriment, more often than not, the holidays are stressful.

That means no childhood bedroom with a twin bed to fuck in with any future boyfriends either. So yeah, I’m laughing, but I’m also feeling pouty about not being able to participate in this holiday ritual. Sigh. It’ll pass.

Rabbits are a masturbation staple for the ladies! [$79.95, The Pleasure Chest] Keep reading »
