I had the pleasure of attending the industry Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo recently and it was a great opportunity to see some of the newest vibes and toys that are turning heads. With advances in technology every day, vibrator technology is also advancing with new features, and lots of bells and whistles.
Going beyond being rechargeable, some vibes now conveniently charge via USB. Beyond waterproof, it's common for vibes to be submersible for some real bathtub or hot-tub fun. Check out some of the newest and revamped vibes on the scene. It might be just the right time for a 2013 upgrade!
We've never seen anything move like the new Fun Factory Stronic before. Check it out in the video below, along with some other new and notable vibes coming to a bedroom near you. We're talking power and innovation. Want to stay ahead of the vibrator revolution? Keep reading…
Sometimes it seems there can be a real 'us' and 'them' attitude, when it comes to vanillas (people who engage in conventional sex, often, it is interpreted as sex which does not involve such elements as BDSM, kink, or fetish activities) and kinksters (according to Wikipedia: "Kinky practices go beyond what are considered conventional 'vanilla' sexual practices as a means of heightening the intimacy between sexual partners.")
If you’re one you can’t be the other, right? You should never let it be known you occasionally associate with the opposing side… It’s also assumed if you’re on one side you think the other is less than worthy.
Breaking it down to basic stereotypes, vanillas think kinksters are scary and weird. Kinksters think vanillas are unadventurous and boring.
"Vanillas" might not be as open about sexual proclivities, but that doesn't mean what they do in private is much different from activities kinky people engage in. Crossing over to the kinky side is not necessarily black and white.
I can’t tell you how many times a self-identified vanilla has asked me, “How do I tell my partner I want some new things in bed? I’ve never told them I like some light spanks and nibbles. I’d love for them to take charge a bit more and be more demanding. I also really enjoy role-playing, but I don’t think I’m into, like, *makes the face* BDSM or anything. All that crazy stuff is just too freaky for me!”
I’m not sure what most people think BDSM is? Let’s break down the acronym and examine a few “other side” observations about BDSM.

Hard dildos are the best! They don’t necessarily have to be huge and they don’t necessarily have to be realistic… We just want them to be hard, rock hard, maybe unnaturally hard, but hey that’s why we’re here.
Hard toys provide undeniable resistance, fullness and pressure to hit all the right spots. They stay firm and don’t yield. They are eternally hard and always ready. Some hard materials like glass and metal have the added benefits of being shiny and gorgeous.
These hard materials can be easily cooled or heated with warm or cold water (never microwave or freeze a dildo before use, extreme temperatures are not pleasant on sensitive areas and burns can occur).
Betty Dodson, a pioneer of advocating female masturbation, has long combined a hard toy with a strong vibrator to help elicit some of the most powerful orgsams. While the vibrator takes care of clitoral stimulation, a hard dildo can provide resistance for clenching and flexing muscles. This is also a great way to learn about your body, and really feel the sensations and resistance from a firm toy.
I’d like to take a moment and focus on some of my favorite types of materials for dildos and yes they are all relatively hard: glass, metal and silicone.
It’s hard to believe that the Sqweel has only been in existence for three years. No sooner had we fallen for the softly rotating wheel of lapping tongues, the designers were dreaming bigger and better, listening to women’s wants and needs and creating the Sqweel 2, improving the toy’s speed, power and motion to give an even bigger range of blissful sensations.
The Sqweel is back and better than ever for round two! A lot of feedback, hard work and love went into this Sqweel update and we are so excited to share it with the world. Your satisfaction and sexual happiness is our main goal. The best way to make an informed decision about any sex toy is to ask the experts.
We took care of that and sent the Sqweel 2 out to some of the most thoughtful and outspoken sex educators and sex toy reviewers we could find.
Here’s what they have to say about Sqweel 2:
Through the years Halloween costumes have gone from fun for the whole family to super sexy outfits that allow us to really show off our fantasies and secret selves and sometimes might go a bit too far… (note: skanky-ween via the Bloggess).
Here at Lovehoney.com we wholeheartedly embrace costumes that have just the right amount of sexy while still staying classy, classic, sometimes functional, sometimes fictional and always fun.
Plus we have some great deals going on right now to make your Halloween shopping experience even sweeter.
Without further ado, let’s see if we can get you fitted for this month’s impending spooky soirees and events, maybe find something that we can add to our dress-up costumes for the entire year?
