Ah, the long awaited Toy Chest post! Er, hopefully somebody’s been waiting for it. Or is excited about it now. Anyway, for your reference, I will be bolding my favorite products, ones that I recommend the most fervently.
Oh, we fancy huh. That’s right. I keep my toys in a Sterilite 3-drawer box, next to my rat cage. Give me a break, I just moved!
Ah-ha! The top drawer! This is where I keep my chargers, my lubricants, my spare bottles of cleaner, edible body powder, and all of my samples. It’s also where I throw my neck massager, because I’m a weirdo and I actually have a vibrator that I use on my neck.
Body Candy, System JO H20 Cherry Burst, Pure Romance Sensations in Hot Buttered Rum, Intimate Organics Defense, Sliquid Sassy, and Pure Romance Pure Silk
The middle drawer is kind of a clusterfuck, pun intended. It houses all of my odds and ends as well as our couple toys. I absolutely love that Intimate Organics Massage Oil in Sensual, which doesn’t stain my sheets. This drawer houses our Sportsheets Doggie Style Strap, our furry handcuffs, our WeVibe II, our favorite cock ring, and some plugs.
I can’t even tell you how much I love this ring. Cock rings have this stigma, and many men will say things like “I don’t need that!” Here’s the thing: you’re up, you stay up, you get harder than normal, a good ring doesn’t cause a big loss of sensation, and it can even make you a little bit bigger. I love this ring in particular because the beads make it ultra easy to roll down and roll back up to remove. (We got ours at Adam & Eve Pittsburgh.)
The WeVibe II is one of those novelty toys that’s very cool, but doesn’t seem to find a place in our day-to-day sex life. I’m a small gal, and I find the design to be a bit overbearing. The silicone collects dust like no other. I still recommend the WeVibe III to couples who are looking to spice things up and want a couples’ vibe that can be used underwater, but I really prefer the design of the Lelo Tiani 2 overall.
I never thought I’d add a plug to my collection. Legitimately was not even on the horizon for me. After working for a while at A&E, though, I began to view the butt as “just another hole.” (Eloquent, right?) I ordered the Doc Johnson Mood: Naughty plug in Medium, and I’m kind of in love with how soft and velvety the silicone is. At only $15, it’s a pretty great starter plug if you’re also thinking of exploring the other side. Please note: I have very small hands – the plug is actually quite a manageable size!
The vibrator drawer! As you can see, I like to store mine in satin drawstring bags, with the exception of my Je Joue Mimi, which is stored in its own little keepsake box. I also keep a bottle of toy cleaner with my vibrators to make that drawer a one-stop shop (Sliquid Sassy usually sits on our nightstand, tbqh).
Oh, Mimi, my egg-shaped love who looks kind of like Eva from Wall:E. Now that there’s a new 3 button version, I more highly recommend Mimi than ever before.
Standing O, Thumbs Up, Micro Bullet, Ultimate 7th Heaven, Daddy from the ‘Nati (all from Pure Romance)
These are what make the Standing O so great: the nubbies. For me, those are 10x better than those piddly rabbit ears you usually see. Three little stimulators, right in a row! You can no longer buy the Standing O through Pure Romance, but you can find it on Eden Fantasys by looking through the Cal Exotics dual stim vibes. For the price, though, I think you can do better – it’s nearly $100.
I really did not expect to fall in love with this toy. It has 3 speeds, it’s hot pink, it’s soft and it looks kind of like a jaw bone. Seriously, though, if you see the Thumbs Up at a Pure Romance party or a vibrator of the same design (made by Cal Exotics) like the one we carry at Adam & Eve, pick it up. They’re $19-26 and they’re definitely one of the best bargain vibes around. They are also phthalate free.
I received this glass dildo as a free gift with an Eden Fantasys order. It had gotten rave reviews, so I was pretty excited about it. As easy as it is to hit my g-spot with this toy, it just refuses to finish the job. I actually got it caught behind my pubic bone at one point (ow) so at the moment, I’m less than thrilled with its performance.
…and last, but not least, I present you an awkward photo of me with my Mini Winachi. It is really freaking hard to take a selfie using a DSLR on manual settings.
