The njoy Pure Wand is quite simply the best g-spotting toy. Ever. A few years ago I got a call from a woman who was assisting in the update to a classic book about g-spotting. She was checking in with various stores, asking what our favorite g-spot toys were.
As I opened my mouth to say, “the Pure Wand”, she added, “anything but the Pure Wand, that’s all anyone is saying”. I had to disappoint her. The Pure Wand is that
good. It’s so good because it has a great curve that makes it easy to reach your own g-spot without having to contort in ways that would end in
carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s heavy, which means that you can apply a little bit of pressure to the toy and get a good amount of pressure on your g-spot. And g-spots tend to love pressure. It’s made of sleek beautiful surgical steel that feels luxurious in your hand. And it never, ever needs a battery. I’m a little bit in love with it.
The Magic Wand has been a classic vibrator for decades. It’s strong, it has a broad head that allows vibration across a wider area, and it has some weight, which is good for folks who like pressure. The weight also makes it easy to use during vaginal penetration – just lay it on a pillow, go into doggie style and lean up against it – vibration for every one.
A few years ago, the makers of the Magic Wand came out with a rechargeable version. They upgraded the head (it’s now silicone), added patterned vibration, more levels of vibration and got rid of the cord. But, if the vibrator needs to charge it will run while it’s charging. Which is a huge plus!
Showers can feel super sexy. Vibration all over your body can feel super sexy. The vibrating
sponge gives you both! It looks just like any other shower scrubbie, but it has a battery operated vibrator built in. It’s a super fun add on to your shower routine!
Lynn Comella’s book about the history of feminist sex toy stores is a compelling read. It starts with how the first stores were born
out of second wave feminism and takes us all the way up to today, and how feminist sex toy stores, and our emphasis on pleasure,
specifically women’s pleasure has changed the shape of the adult industry. And, you’ll come across a bit about yours truly and Sugar in the book! If you love women’s history and feminism, this book is for you!
From We-vibe, the Nova takes the dual action vibrator and amps it up a notch. We-Vibe is known for their deep rumbly vibrations and innovative designs. They didn’t disappoint. One of the biggest issues with dual action vibrators is not knowing if the design of a specific vibe will fit your own delightfully unique body. We-Vibe addressed this issue by making the clitoral piece extremely flexible and adjustable. The Nova has multiple vibration patterns, is rechargeable, waterproof and compatible with the WeConnect App. If you like dual action vibrators, you’ll love the Nova.
Have you ever been at a music festival or concert, gone into the porta potty and not wanted to squat of the toilet because you
didn’t want to even get that close? Or been hiking and not wanted to pull your pants down to pee? The pStyle is what you’ve been looking for. It’s essentially a funnel that you put between your legs and pee into. It takes a little practice (do that in your shower), but once you have it down, you’ll be able to pee standing up where ever you need to!
The Joque harness is simply the best harness on the market. It’s incredibly adjustable for a perfect fit every time. There’s no hard parts to hurt the person receiving penetration. It rests tight on
your body so that the wearer has more control and more comfort.
It has pockets for vibrators. And it’s machine washable. Between the two sizes, it fits a 24 – 54” waist. You simply can’t go wrong with this harness.
This girthy vibrator has a satiny silicone finish and flexibility with some medium strength, adjustable vibration for a great price!
This handmade, all natural honey dust is made with pure coco powder and comes with a feather duster to dust the powder on the skin. The silky feel of the powder and the tickle of the feather combine for a sensuous sensation. Amp it up by having your partner slowly lick the tasty powder from your skin.
