First Thoughts

I love B-Vibe as a company and really enjoy the feel of their motors in my hand so I was very interested to find out how it feels in use. I am also an intermediate anal participant so I was curious to see how I could handle not just the size, but also the strength of the vibrations in the backdoor which I have never tried.


It has incredibly smooth silicone which feels great going into the body and almost feels like it requires less lube because of the lack of drag on the material. (Just don’t forget you need to use lube regardless of how smooth because the backdoor doesn’t self lubricate!! Read more here)

They are also super flexible, which I especially appreciate for a backdoor toy. When toys are too stiff for the backdoor particularly I feel like it can be almost painful for me. Typically vibrating anal toys have the motor running through them which makes them very stiff, Somehow they figured out a way to make strong vibration in a flexible toy! The flexibility allows it move ergonomically with my body which made inserting all of the beads a pretty simple feat.

The way the bead is tapered makes insertion really easy, and the bead shape makes it easy to stop wherever the user is comfortable length-wise. So even though it is a pretty long toy you can stop wherever you feel comfortable. So it makes it a great toy for beginners and people who are more advanced in their anal play.

The remote makes it a really easy solo toy, on top of the obvious use of using it with a partner and having them control it. When it’s inserted you don’t have to reach behind you to potentially fumble with the button because the remote can completely control the settings of the toy. So this is great for folks who might have a bigger body like me, or even mobility issues. Also of note, it was the easier remote to sync to the toy. Sometimes I’ve had issued with other brands remote control and syncing them to the toy. This was probably the easiest one I’ve ever experienced!

The waterproof feature is an added bonus because anal exploration is great in the bath or shower, because it makes clean up so much easier. You’re also typically relaxed and already touching your body in the shower or bath so it makes it an easy transition to butt stuff!


Because it is a luxury toy, the price reflects that. So while it is worth the investment it might be cost prohibitive to someone who isn’t sure they want to invest that much money into a sex toy.

They might look slightly intimidating to newbies but because you don’t have to insert the entire toy it is actually a great start toy as long as you don’t mind it hanging out of you a bit if you only want a couple of the beads in you.

If you turn them on accidentally you’ll have to charge them more often. The button has a light touch and sometimes you’ll tap it and it’ll be receiving for the remote but not completely on and that tends to run out the battery. So just be mindful, it has a light so just always make sure the light is off!

Besides those few considerations, the Cinco is a great toy and I really don’t have any complaints.

Final Thoughts

From the packaging, to the travel case, to the smooth silicone this toy is worth the investment for people who not only enjoy anal beads, but strong vibration.

Pro Hack: I used them as a underwear vibe. the beads are strong enough and quiet enough to do that and it was fun having a very different texture rubbing up against my bits. If you’re not someone with a bigger body this might not work for you, but try putting the beads against your vulva and see rubbing them that way and see how it feels. Because they’re silicone you can sanitize them between backdoor and front door use. Just make sure you don’t go back to front without cleaning them with a toy cleaner or antibacterial soap!

Butt Toys Guide

Butt Toys Guide

There’s so many options! That’s the number one thing I hear in the store I work in. So here’s a handy guide to help you at least narrow down the kind of toy you wanna get for the backdoor.

First things first

Anything that goes in your butt has to have some sort of base or flared bottom so it doesn’t get lost back there. There is an internal sphincter you have no control of so if it clenches and there isn’t a base to stop it, you’re probably in for a trip to the hospital!


Lube is the most important aspect of entering the backdoor because the butt does not self lubricate. And spit is just not enough! For more info on which lubes are good for the backdoor read more here. To sum it up, because most toys are silicone and you can’t use a silicone lube with a silicone toy most people will use a thicker water-based gel formula, or a hybrid that is mostly water-based with a little bit of silicone; just enough to make it slipperier but not ruin your silicone toys.


Plugs are the most common backdoor toy. In terms of shape you want to look for ones that are wider then thinner at the neck of the toy. This helps it stay in. When the widest part of by your sphincter muscle your muscles clenching tend to push the toy out of the body. So getting one that is thinnest at the neck helps keep the toy in the body. The fun factory bootie is a good example and it comes in 3 sizes! I also don’t recommend using toys smaller then a finger. You should be warming up with fingers and then slipping your plug of choice in.

On the other hand ones that are wider at the base like the tantus pro touch that keep getting pushed out of the body are great to work in and out and get used to the sensation of penetration. Toys that are curved are great for folks with prostates as well as g spots because the curve hits the prostate directly and will indirectly stimulate the g spot because the wall between the front and back door are super thin. 
Image result for tantus pro touch


Beads are some of my favorite toys. They intensify the sensation of orgasm, because when you orgasm your butt spasms along with everything else. So when you pull anal beads out while you’re orgasming it intensifies that already wonderful sensation. There are 2 kinds of beads, flexible ones that bunch up inside you when you put them inside like the flexi felix from fun factory. In use it feels more like a plug when it’s inside but will still help that throbbing feeling when you pull them out.

There are also firmer bead style toys that stay straight inside the body when inserted. Like the tantus ripple and the fun factory bendy beads. These not only help you work up in size because they gradually get bigger, but if you’re using them for double penetration they create a texture sensation. If these toys are in the backdoor and a penis is in the front door then the penis is going to feel the beaded texture through the wall of the vagina because it is so thin. And it also helps intensify your orgasm the same way by pulling them out when you’re orgasming.

Dildos are great for warming up if you want to practice the sensation of things going in and out. Butts generally don’t love too much texture so take that into consideration when picking out your dildo. I would start with a dildo with little to no texture to start with so you don’t buy a toy you’re unable to use. A curve again will be great for everybody because of what I explained above. A slight head or a curve is plenty of texture for most folks. So toys like the Vixen Mistress is a great toy for backdoor play (see below). Also when picking out your dildo, the main difference between a plug and a dildo is motion. Plugs are meant to hang out and stay in place where dildos are intended for penetration and in and out motion. So with that being said, don’t let your eyes be bigger then your hole. Use your fingers or toys you know you enjoy as a way to gauge the size of the dildo. If you’ve only been able to get 2 fingers in, don’t pick a dildo that is 4 fingers wide.

Anal Fun Doesn’t Have To Be Penetration

Anal Fun Doesn’t Have To Be Penetration

I bet you always thought anal sex was when you penetrate the anus huh?

Sex in general doesn’t have to prescribe to the old notion of sex being the act of being penetrated. Sex is pretty much anything that feels sexual. How YOU choose to define sex might be an evolving definition, your sexual interests may change over time, and that’s okay. Read more here.

So what does that mean for Anal?

Anal can be a fun journey, you don’t always have to have a destination. Sometimes low pressure play can be a fun experience for folks. There are tons of things to do to butts that don’t involve penetrating it!

Erotic Massage

Butt massage can be a pleasurable ways to relax.  The butt muscles are large powerful muscles that work constantly throughout the day. Butt massage can also be foreplay, if you want it to be! Butt massage floods the pelvis with fresh blood flow, enhancing sexual sensations and increasing arousal.

The largest buttock muscle is the gluteus maximus. If you place your hand directly on you buttock, you are touching the gluteus maximus muscle. Underneath and slightly to the outside of the gluteus maximus is the gluteus medius muscle. On the outer edge of the buttock is the tensor fasciae latae. The tendon of the tensor fasciae latae goes all the way from the hip to the knee and is called the IT band.

Image result for butt muscles

  1. Warm up the muscles with general Swedish effleurage and petrissage.
  2. Starting at the top of the gluteus maximus, use your elbow to massage down toward the thigh. Repeat this massage stroke until you cover the entire muscle.
  3. Find the gluteus medius then hook your fingers into the muscle and either make circles or pull to take the slack out of the muscle.
  4. To massage some of the deep lateral rotators massage in a fan-like pattern toward the sacrum.

Rimming with fingers

Rubbing the outside of the sphincter can feel amazing. I would recommend using a gloved hand instead of a naked hand because the fingers have a lot of texture on them. Adding a glove will smooth everything out and basically make your hand feel like a really affordable sex toy! With the glove rubbing the backdoor you absolutely need lube with it. Here is a guide to what lube would be best for what activity you’re doing. Use the pads of your fingers if you don’t intend on going inside, the pads of your fingers will feel better then the tips if you’re just rubbing the outside.

Rimming with mouths

Well I have a entire post about this! So read more here.  But to sum it up, use your tongue to make different sensations. You can make your tongue pointy and hard or flat and broad to create a variety of sensations and licks for the backdoor. You can always use dental dams if you don’t feel comfortable putting your mouth directly on the anus, and add lube. Flavored will always be good for oral activities, just make sure it’s glycerin free so you don’t make someone butt all sticky.


For non penetrative butt toys make sure you pick a flat toy, not a long skinny toy. So toys like the We-vibe Touch or JeJoue Mimi are great toys that can stimulate the outside without worrying that the lube your using is going to have the toy accidentally slip inside.

Avoid toys like the We vibe tango or Sensuelle point because they can easily slip inside and get lost.

Shake the Ground: Stongest Vibes out there

Shake the Ground: Stongest Vibes out there

There’s lots of reasons why someone would need or want a really strong vibe, and there is nothing shameful about it. Knowing what you want sexually helps not only your own pleasure, but your ability to communicate it to people you’re sleeping with. Lots of people need a lot of stimulation to orgasm and need some sort of vibrator involved in their sex life to get off. Vibrators don’t have to be just a fun sometimes addition, they can be the thing that gets you off all the time and there’s nothing wrong with that. I personally will take eons if I don’t have a vibrator, but my partner knows that and will always ask which toy I want. He doesn’t feel any type of way about it, he’s just happy to be orgasming with me. It just means he knows what I need and are willing to make my own needs a priority.

External Vibes

Most wand vibes are going to be a go-to for powerful vibes. The heads are typically big and broad, so it might not feel great for people who prefer more pinpointed stimulation. However, most wand vibes have attachments available that can provide more direct and focused sensations, if that’s what your preference.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable is the new and improved version of what used to be called the Hitachi Magic Wand. It is a standard and withstands the test of time for a reason. It’s got the same “Holy Shit” and “OH MY F’in GOD” higher speeds that the original Hitachi did, along with two more speeds, making it a way more versatile wand for people. The new version of the Magic Wand is also rechargeable. It’s designed such that you can use it cordless or while it’s charging, Which I can’t think of another toy that you can use while it’s charging. And the new head is silicone, which doesn’t absorb bacteria, and is a lot squishier then the original which makes it more comfortable if you’re a person who likes to grind into toys.

Image result for hitachi magic wand

If pinpoint vibrators are your thing then the one to go with is the We-Vibe Tango or Sensuelle Point. they both looks like a tube of lipstick but are strong as hell. Both toy’s hard plastic construction transmits the vibrations. The Tango’s flat tip is ideal for pressing and way more rumbly. The Sensuelle Point is more pointed if you prefer that, and is more buzzy is you like higher pitched vibrations. Both are rechargeable and waterproof!

Image result for we vibe tango

One of my favorite under-rated brands is Je Joue, I think they have the most rumbly, thudy motor on the market and the Mimi Soft is such a versatile shape. You can use the squishy tip for more pinpointed vibration, or the flat side for more broad stimulation. And because the tip is squishy it’s perfect for folks who like to press or grind into their toys. And this toy also has great power. It is my go to when the wand is just too cumbersome.

Internal Vibes

Strong vibrations are particularly important for vibrators meant to be used inside the body. Because the G-spot and prostate are both pretty buried inside the body and often need intense stimulation: strong vibes, intense pressure, hard and fast thrusting, or all the sensations combined!

Fun Factory’s toys in their G5 line, like the Tiger and Miss Bi, have twice as much power as their previous generation of toys, and the vibrations have amazing rumbly quality to them. And they are soft without being so soft it’s hard to get them into the body. Just enough squish! And they have plenty of shapes, sizes and colors to fill any ones desires.

There are also a lot of attachments that fit on the head of massager style toys that lend themselves to being used inside the body. The strong vibrations transmit perfectly through the attachments and there are tons of options to choose from!

Anal Vibes

A lot of anal toys are just bullets in sleeves that make them anal safe. Most bullets are battery operated so not too strong, especially in squishy silicone sleeves. So there are a few options. You can get a rechargeable bullet like the We Vibe Tango which is a universal bullet size and something like the Tantus Pro Touch.

Image result for tantus pro touch

Or you can use a dual stimulator like the Fun Factory Miss Bi (see above) for the backdoor. In fact the Fun Factory Moody is one of my favorite anal vibes. With backdoor toys you just need to make sure they are anal safe, meaning they have some sort of base or flare on the end to make sure they don’t keep going and going. The front door has the cervix, nothing can get lost there but the backdoor does not so anything that goes in there needs some type of base. That’s why rabbit style vibes work anally, the “clit stimulator” works as a great flare to stop it from getting too deep. Also any of the internal wand attachments can be used anally as well.

Image result for fun factory moody

Penis Vibes

Common vibes for penises are stroker sleeves with a bullet attached to it. Those are not strong usually. The strongest vibe for penises I’ve come across is the Fun factory Cobra Libre. It puts vibration around the head of the penis where it is most effective and leaves the shaft open so you cans till stroke the shaft of the penis. All amazing things! It’s also completely waterproof and you know know I love me some bath time.  I know I keep talking about how amazing Wands are, but you can also use them right under the head of the penis while you’re stroking a penis and it works like magic also!

Hot Sex Without Melting?

Hot Sex Without Melting?

Related image Actual picture of me
I’m fat and always feel extra hot (temperature wise!). So in the summer I feel particularly unsexy. You don’t have to be fat to be too hot to get sexy because the heat can drive even the most ambitious person to avoiding intimate body contact. In the heat you’re already sweating just from sitting still – having sex is something I can’t even wrap my mind around. Cooling things off while you’re heating things up can not only be fun, but can make summer sexy time a thing that might not have even been possible. Temperature play is the obvious route and might help you cool off while getting down. You might even love it and add it to your normal sexual repertoire. Temperature play is a fun, easy and usually inexpensive option for sensation play and foreplay in general. In fact, you probably have toys in your home that can be chilled. Even if you don’t own any sex toys, a quick look in your refrigerator might prove profitable for your sexual adventure. Get creative – and stay cool – with these tips.

Ice Ice Baby

Technically  ice cubes aren’t a sex toy, they have been the standard for temperature play since the invention of the freezer. Ice cubes are cheap and everyone has access to them without going to a sex toy store. They can be teased along the skin for a pleasurable feel. An ice cube hack is to allow the ice cube to melt slightly before placing it on the skin; this will allow the ice cube to slide easily over the surface of the skin and may even leave a trail of water behind. You can also get creative by changing the shape of ice for any play ideas you have in mind. ice cube trays that are especially designed for water bottles may work as meltable dildos. But don’t forget to make some extra cubes just in case you want to continue past the first one. I like to leave it in my partners belly button and tell them if they drip it while I’m teasing them there will be some type of sexy repercussions.

There are so many different lube variations available for sale, and some lubricants even include cooling ingredients that leave the skin tingling after application. Many of these lubricants may include menthol or other stronger ingredients. Heads up if your genitals are sensitive to harsher ingredients, you can always just put the bottle of lube in the fridge before your playtime to cool it down. (Learn more about different types of lubes here)

Image result for cooling personal lubricant

Ice Vibrator

These actually exist! They use a soft material (usually silicone from what I’ve seen) that doesn’t freeze like water does, you then add water to the vibrator sleeve and put it in the freezer. When the sex toy is entirely frozen, you remove the toy from the freezer and slide the vibrator into the sleeve. Once that’s all done, you’ll have a vibrator that’s attached to an ice cube for chilling, vibrating fun. Ice vibrator toys that I’ve actually seen are the Touché Ice Massager and Foreplay Ice Chill Vibrator. The bullet in those toys are just battery operated, if you want something stronger. Get a rechargeable bullet! Then it’s also waterproof!

Glass Sex Toys

Generally glass toys are more affordable then some of their silicone or even stainless steel counterparts. They can be cooled or warmed depending on your desires. They take a little more time to get to those temperatures compared to stainless steel materials which cools and warms quickly. However they also tend to hold that temperature a bit longer than stainless steel does. But you all know glass holds temperature wonderfully so glass toys are great for temperature play. You can run them along the skin before you penetrate yourself or your partner for some warm up.

Image result for glass dildos

Stainless Steel Sex Toys

The hands down easiest ways to play around with temperature is through toys made of stainless steel. When placed in a warm or cold environment, stainless steel quickly adapts to the temperature and becomes either warmed or cooled. Leave a stainless steel toy in a bin of ice cubes or run it under cold water for a bit, and it will become cold. If you’re lazy or didn’t plan appropriately, you can even just leave it in front of the AC. The one negative is the toy will easily warm to body temperature, so be prepared and  keep a second stainless steel toy chilled ready to go if you want to keep the party going.

These of course are not the only ways! Mix and match the different things, you never know what you’ll enjoy until you actually try it. And feel free to let me know your tips to share with others!

A lube for every Occasion. Which is best for you?

A lube for every Occasion. Which is best for you?

I recently wrote about how important lube is. So now that you know you want lube, what kind should you try? There are benefits for certain types of lubes for specific body parts.

Image result for pleasure chest lube

Oral sex: flavored lube. One important thing to look out for especially with flavored lubes is glycerin. Glycerin is sugar, even if a lube says sugar free read the ingredients and check for glycerin. Not only does glycerin make things sticky, if you have a vagina you need to be careful it can give you a yeast infection because sugar feeds yeast. You don’t really need a lube for oral sex, unless you have a dry mouth or just finds lube makes things more slippery and interesting. It can also help if the person receiving oral feels insecure about their taste or smell. But complimenting your partner will help with that insecurity. If you really love the flavored lubes with sugar in it (they tend to taste better) just keep it on the outside of the body and you shouldn’t have any issues. Some of my favorite glycerin free brands is Sliquid and Nature Lovin. Sliquid has my favorite flavor, blackberry fig which makes me feel like I got the lube at a fancy farmers market, and Nature Lovin has such a wide variety of flavors they have something for everyone. They even have really fun seasonal flavors like candy cane!

My favorites: Nature Lovin flavored lubes, and sliquid flavored lubes.

Image result for nature lovin lube

Hand-jobs or fingering: silicone-based lube or oil based. These lubes stay slippery the longest. Water based lube tends to get absorbed into your skin because we’re made out of water, especially when you put it on a body part that doesn’t have it’s own wetness source like a mouth or vagina. Just be careful with oil, you want to get an oil based lube not a plain old massage oil because most oils tend to trap bacteria in the body. Lubes that are oil based are usually coconut oil that is safe to go in the body. And silicone lube doesn’t get absorbed into the skin so stays slippery forever. However, something to consider, if you plan on getting your mouth involved, you’ll want to use a water-based lube instead; silicone and oil based lube doesn’t feel great in your mouth.

My favorites: Gun oil silicone lube, Southern Butter Oil based lubesSouthern-Butter-Rose-Lav-2-Oz-Lubricants-Safer-Sex-Oil-Based-Lube-1.jpg

Anal sex: a thick water-based lube, a gel formula is best. Thick lubes last for longer without needing to be reapplied, and they also tend to stay put instead of dripping. Water-based lube is the best choice if you’re planning on using any silicone toys as part of your play or warm-up. Or even a hybrid lube, which is mostly water based with a tiny bit of silicone in it. The silicone keeps it slippery longer but it’s not enough silicone in most formulas to ruin a silicone toy. I always recommend a spot test to make sure you’re not going to ruin your nice silicone toy just in case. If you’re not using silicone toys, you could go with a silicone-based lube instead; people like silicone-based for anal because it lasts longer and has an oily, silky texture.

My favorites: Sliquid sassy (water-based gel), Pjur backdoor (silicone with jojoba relaxing), and Jo Coconut Oil Hybrid

Image result for pleasure chest lube

Vaginal sex: a water-based lube, especially ones with carrageenan and/or aloe. Carrageenan is a seaweed extract that close resembles the natural lubrication of vaginas.  And when you start to get wet naturally, your own lubrication will blend with the lube nicely and make it last longer. Silicone lube is also fine in the vagina, I would reccomend a thinner one so it’s easier to clean it out of the body. Because remember silicone lube doesn’t get absorbed into your skin, it must get pushed out and thicker formulas just take longer. Uberlube, and Pjur woman are both thinner formulas great for vaginas. Also if you’re not using condoms, you can use an oil-based lube, just make sure it’s made of vagina-safe oils (i.e. not petroleum!).

My favorites: Sliquid Sea, Uberlube, and Southern Butter Oil based lube

Image result for pleasure chest lube

Using silicone toys: a water-based or hybrid lube. Silicone lubes bind together and make silicone toys basically melt. So water-based is the best way to go. If you don’t like how quickly water-based lubes dry up, you can add use a hybrid which is mostly water based, with a little silicone in it. Just make sure to do a spot test so you don’t ruin your toy. Oil based are also fine and won’t ruin the material.

My favorites: Sliquid silk, sliquid sea

Lube: Why Wetter Is Better

Lube: Why Wetter Is Better

I work in a sex toy store and the most stigmatized but important item that we sell is lube. People seem to get offended when you ask if they have lube at home to go with their toy but there is no shame in using or enjoying lube. I would say it’s the most important thing I sell and everyone should have lube on their nightstand.

Image result for wetter is better little mermaid

Even if you are really wet, lubricant helps cut down on friction. Which is not only healthier, but it makes everything feel better and more natural. The difference between using lube is like using lip gloss. Yea just licking your lips makes them wet, but using lip gloss keeps them wet. Using lube is a way to make sex safer!  Too much friction can lead to risk of infection, but lube reduces friction.  It also makes you less sore after sex. Sex in general lasts longer when you cut down on friction, it is also more pleasurable.

When you’re using sex toys it is especially important to use lubricant. Toys are not like skin to skin contact. Most materials have a drag to them when inserted in the body. Lube will cut down on friction and not cause rips or tears in the body. Anal toys are the most important toys to use lube with because the butt does not self lubricate. Anal sex should never hurt. If it hurts you probably need more lube. Check out some more tips here if you’re interested in anal.

Image result for waterfalls

Even using lube externally on toys for the clit is great. This can create more sexual pleasure and an easier route to orgasm. Lubrication helps speed up foreplay and maximize the effects of sensations. In general lube helps enhance sensations and increase your pleasure. It can enhance sexual arousal by stimulating the flow of blood to the vulva, which encourages your body to create some of its own lube. If you’re experience vaginal dryness it can also help with that. There are lots of formulas with aloe, vitamin E, etc, that help keep vaginal skin soft and help maintain elasticity of vaginal walls.

There are also so many flavored lubes out there that can make oral sex more fun. Just be wary of glycerin. If things say sugar free a lot of times they still have glycerin. If they do don’t stress, just keep it on the outside of the body. Sugar is only bad inside of you, so use it to your hearts content on your skin.

Image result for wetThere are so many different types of lubricants. Something for everyone. There are a lot of different reasons to use different kinds of lube. There’s so many different types of textures, tastes, sensations. Just because you haven’t found the one for you doesn’t mean you should stop trying! Lube makes everything better. There are some basics kinds so you know the basic differences.

Water Based Lube

Water-based lubricants are the most common, with good reason. They’re easy to clean up (and to wash out of clothing or sheets). And of course since pure water is about the most natural ingredient out there, these lubes can also be very gentle and soothing to your skin. Ingrediants to avoid, glycerin, glycol and parabens. Glycerin is sugar, and sugar in the body not only feel yeast but can also create little rips and tears in the body that let in bacteria.  Glycol, an ingredient also found in antifreeze, is very harsh on intimate skin. As well as parabens which are a known carcinogen.

  • Most natural feeling option
  • Moisturizing for skin

Silicone Lube

Silicone is a material made from alternate chains of silicon (a natural element) and oxygen atoms. Silicone is also hypoallergenic, so it’s a great choice for lube users with sensitive skin or allergies. And since these lubes contain mostly silicone instead of water, they often last longer and need to be reapplied less often. Something important to know is, do not use with silicone toys! Silicone loves silicone so much they bind together and make your fancy silicone toys melt 😦

  • Great for play in the water because it doesn’t just wash away
  • Great for anal sex because it needs to be reapplied less
  • Can double as massage oil

Hybrid Lube

Formulated from mostly water based, with a little bit of silicone in them to keep them slicker longer like silicone but won’t leave a mess or ruin silicone toys.

  • Great silicone alternative if you’re using silicone toys

Oil Based Lube

most important thing to know is that oil-based lubricants aren’t safe to use with latex condoms. They can make the latex rip and tear. Oils can also be hard to clean off of toys and skin. They can clog pores and provide an easy breeding ground for bacteria and infections. Massage oil shouldn’t be used as lube, most oils trap bacteria in the body.

Image result for wet

Toys that always need lube!

  • kegel balls (generally people insert them into the vagina insert as an exercise and need lubrication for them to slide in when not aroused.)
  • Anal toys (the butt does not self lubricate)
  • Penis masturbation toys (they don’t get wet like real people)
  • Condoms (the lube on the condom often isn’t enough. Lube will cut down on friction and help the condom not break.)
