I’m grateful — no, thrilled — to live in the golden era of vibrators. We have vibrators for clitoral stimulation, we have vibrators for your G-spot, we have vibrators you can fit inside your purse, we have vibrators you can use in the shower — just about anything you want a vibrator to do (except do your taxes), you can. It’s really one of the better parts of being a woman in 2014. That and indoor plumbing.
But just because a vibrator can do something doesn’t mean it should. That was my takeaway from Lelo’s new toy the Ida, the world’s first rotating and vibrating couple’s massager. Keep reading »
Oh yeah, there’s more where that came from! Last week, I showed you five selections from my bountiful collection of sex toys, including the amazing G-Vibe and the less impressive OhMiBod, but I was only just getting started. In part two of this episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, I’ll give you the straight dope on five more vibrators I’ve roadtested, including one that I think every woman should invest in — the Hitachi Magic Wand. But which vibrator is my go-to? Watch to find out! (Want more FGSG episodes? Subscribe to our YouTube channel!) Keep reading »
Public Service Announcement: if you accidentally lodge a sex toy in one of your orifices, GO TO THE DOCTOR. A 50-year-old London man died this past December from septic shock after he waited five long days to remove a dildo he’d lodged into his rectum. Nigel Willis was too embarrassed to go see a doctor, though he was “dizzy, weak and unable to move,” according to ITV News, A friend finally forced him to see someone, but by that point, the dildo had pierced his bowels, leading to the septic shock. How horrible! I wish Nigel knew that a lot of people worry about losing stuff up there — tampons, condoms, even sex toys — and doctors have seen everrrrrything. Literally, everything. So, please don’t leave things sitting up there (wherever “up there” might be, I don’t judge!). Avoiding five minutes of embarrassment is not worth your life. Plus, you’ll have a really great story for your next round of “Two Truths And A Lie.” [New York Daily News; ITV News] [Image of a doctor via Shutterstock]
One of the perks of working at The Frisky for the last six-plus years is that a lot of people, specifically a lot of strangers working at sex toy companies (and cannabis lube manufacturers!), have made it their mission to up my masturbation game. I’ve been sent tons of vibrators over the years and have happily given them all a whirl, so to speak. So what better way to show you the wide array of pleasure-giving devices on the market then to open up my very own box of toys. Check out part one of this very intimate episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, and look for part two next week! BTW, this might be my favorite episode I’ve ever done. I just wanted to say that.
I consider myself a bit of a masturbation expert (i.e. I have spent a lot of my life single and horny) and have a sex toy box full of every possible vibrator you could imagine, yet I am seriously flummoxed by the point of the Glov, a new sex toy innovation. Wait, lemme take a step back. I was initially pumped by what I thought the Glov was for, as it was described by the Daily Dot as a “bionic glove” that “wants to change the way women masturbate.” I assumed that meant that this was a vibrating glove that took masturbating with your hand to whole new heights. I am firm believer that while vibrators and dildos and all that jazz are awesome, sometimes it’s good to go back to basics and use ye olde fingers from time to time, you know, just to keep them in shape. (I feel similarly about porn — great, if you’re into it, but to stave off a dependency, it’s good to take a breather from the hardcore smut and use your imagination during masturbation sometimes.) In my fantasies, the Glov gave your hand a little extra bzzzzzzzzz. Keep reading »
You guys know me, I’m all for new advancements in sexual technology. Sex toys? I’ve tried ‘em. Cannabis lube? I’ve used up every drop! But a cock ring that monitors a dude’s thrusts per minute and calories burned, and then posts that info to social media? NOPE. First of all, goddammit, can’t we all just enjoy one form of physical activity without obsessing over its weight loss potential? If you’re banging me, the last thing you should be thinking about is whether you’ve jackhammered away the bacon, egg and cheese you had for breakfast. Keep reading »
