We get lots of sex toys sent to us at The Frisky’s office. Like, lining-the-bookshelves lots. Don’t get us wrong: we’ll never say no to a new vibrator or free condoms. But truth be told, the packaging and aesthetic of so many sex toys give us a seedy vibe. We don’t want our sex toys to make us feel like we’re lurking around at the tawdry XXX Love Emporium on the side of the highway. We want our sex toys to remind us of the classy, sexy, sensual women that we are. [Unless we're using them as decorative conversation starters, that is. -- Amelia]
Right from the get-go, the Unbound box felt different: it’s a nondescript white box that arrives in the mail through a subscription service and is filled with sex toys all geared towards women. The toys hail from quality companies like Babeland, Lelo and Glas Toys and are meant for use with partners of any gender or sexual orientation. My Unbound box came in the mail with a clitoral vibrator, a glass dildo, lubricant, condoms, a lingerie bag, and a spare contact lens case to carry in my purse for “sleepovers” — score! When I found out that Unbound is a women-owned startup and that the three founders — Greer, Sarah Jayne and Katie — select all the sex toys themselves, I knew I had to talk to them.
Here’s what a couple of the Unbound cofounders Greer Goldenberg and Sarah Jayne Kinney have to say about their great idea:

Oh my god, aren’t you excited? “Back Door Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham is apparently looking to capitalize on the success of her sex tape with porn star James Deen by selling fuckable replicas of her lady parts. According to Radar Online, Abraham is releasing her own line of sex toys, and in addition to the pocket pussy, Farrah also had her surgically enhanced breasts molded as well. Cameras were there, naturally, and in the promotional video (watch it here), Farrah explains, “Hey, so I think I’m taking sex symbol to a whole new level today. I’m at Topco, which is, like, the fourth biggest in the nation adult toy sales manufacturer, So now I’m going to have a whole, like, sex line. People are going to jack off to me. This is crazy.”
Indeed. I have always wanted to know what goes into making a mold of one’s vulva — just kidding, no I haven’t — and this screenshot alone is providing me with LULZ for days. I must admit, while I don’t want a molded Farrah vag for sexual purposes, I would display one in my home as a conversation starter. Topco, hook it up! [Huffington Post; Radar Online]
You might remember this woman with the butt plug tail as Rachel from Season 3 of “Laguna Beach.” Nowadays, she is Tasha Reign, a Penthouse model, porn star, sex columnist and creator of Reignbow Pony Plugs. As described in a press release received by Jezebel, the Reignbow Pony Plug is a “whimsical handcrafted anal plug with a luminous twist of Reignbow sparkle through the center and a vibrantly colored, flowing Ponytail.” Sound exciting? Good. Because they will be “galloping into a town near you today” (according to the website) and come in four vibrant pony tail colors … so you have options. If pony play isn’t exactly the kind of horsing around you’re into, here are some more butt plugs that appeal to every sexual spirit animal. [Jezebel]
It’s never too early to discover your mom’s huge silicone dildo. Wait, yes it is. It’s always too early. Fortunately I don’t think this toddler has any idea what Mommy likes to do with her special toy from an Ann Summers sex toy party, only that she’s very upset he found it and wants it back. Hmmm. Hope she keeps the nipple clamps better hidden. [Guyism]
With our busy lifestyles, multitasking is a necessity. Like say, for instance, if you want to try to squeeze in both daily exercise (or in the case of NYC’s new Citibike program, your morning commute) and a masturbation session, so you can save the 15 minutes you might spend clicking mindlessly through your Instagram feed. Well, the Happy Ride, a bicycle seat cover with a discreet, high-powered vibrator tucked inside, makes it possible. The sex toy disguised as bicycle gear goes for about $40 and comes with an attached remote control so you can adjust the vibration speed to your liking. Keep reading »
On your mark … Get set … OoooooohhhhHHHHhhhhhhhhh!
The only thing better than a sex toy race is a good finish — especially for a good cause! We first met the Stronic pulsating sex toy in Las Vegas, where four battery-powered dildos pulsated on a 10-foot race course at a whopping 1.5 mph. This time, in New York, two different types of Fun Factory stimulators raced, complete with a scantily clad announcer and high stakes. Read more on Huffington Post…
Meet (from left to right) Geena the intimate massager, Woody the deep stimulator and Clitt the double action stimulator. They look like something fun for your baby to teeth on, but in fact, they are adult toy company Kokoro’s new line of vibrators. The Buxxxer collection is now available for purchase. That is, if the thought of a sex toy that stares back at you doesn’t freak you the fuck out. I think I’ll pass. Vibrators aren’t meant to be adorable. Or dance to Daft Punk. [Laughing Squid]
