  • High end toys – Expensive, but is it worth the investment?

    Much can be said about consumer products, but usually it boils down to the "You get what you pay for" That age old adage is just as true today as it ever was.

    While many of the entry level toys have motors that are proven to work well and last for a decent amount of time, some do not. High end manufacturers base the toy around the motor. This ensures that the motor in your toy will vibrate at a food level for the material, that the shape works well with it and the motor is not overstressed or overheated (both issues with longevity). Another performance indicator is batteries. While high end toys often have 2 amp motors which can handle Alkaline batteries, the motors in low end toys use much lower amperage. What this means to you is that if you choose to forgo a "toy safe" batterie like the ones we carry in store and decide to pop an energizer in there... Your cheaper toy could burn its motor out with the excess power! Nothing is worse than thinking about getting down to business and then finding out your toy is dead.

    Batteries - Not included or deluded? Another bonus to many high end toys is that they feature a rechargeable battery. These rechargeable batteries ensure that no matter what, your toy is receiving the right amount of juice, so burnt out motors are a thing of the past. Many of our high end toys also feature magnetic induction charging. While the tech behind it is complex, the way it works is easy to understand. A small magnet connects to your toy and it charges. This means you cannot plug it in backwards. You can easily charge it with one hand, or even in the dark. Another awesome bonus is that it keeps your toy port free. No holes, no washers, no screw caps. Your toy is completely waterproof and submersible... You could bring is scuba diving if you want. Under the watta, where it is hotta indeed!

    Warranties - Guaranteed to succeed. Manufacturers know their products best. After all they have designed them from the ground up. What shows greater faith in a product than a warranty? We have toys that have 1 year, 2 years and even 5 year warranties! When a manufacturer stands behind their product like that, you can be sure you are getting your monies worth. Some manufactures even have loyalty "guarantees" like Lelo. If you Lelo toy breaks or wears down after the initial warranty and within the next 10 years, they will give you 50% off your next Lelo toy! Let's see Honda match that!

    (It should be noted that due to Oregon law, we cannot accept returns on personal use items, all warranties are to be completed with the manufacturer.)

  • Cleanliness is next to Sexiness

    Now this isn't about your personal hygiene, it's about how to keep your sex toys in tip-top shape. While care for some toys is pretty straightforward, others require a little more work. Some sex toy materials wear faster than others, or even react chemically to certain household cleaners or soaps. This is where "toy safe" options come in. While all toys should be safe to rinse in warm water, a quick rinse just doesn't cut it. Most toys are made of materials that look super slick or flat on the surface. Don't let this fool you into thinking that it's as smooth as glass! These materials when looked at under a microscope contain lots of peaks and valleys that form what is referred to as "pores". These pores, just like the ones on your skin, can open and stretch. Usually this happens due to stress like pulling, stretching too far, or treating your rabbit like a billy club. Another way they become larger is through abrasion and wear caused by soaps. Soaps work great to clean skin, but they also take away the top layer of skin. Same thing happens to your toy (YIKES).

    The places where many of us store our toys happen to be a perfect bacterial breeding ground to begin with. A dark drawer where it's probably warm and it's got a little moisture from it's last cleaning. Add to that larger pore size and you basically have a petri dish waiting to give you an infection. It's important that you keep your toys clean and free from bacteria to ensure maximum fun, and there is an easy way to do this.

    First, toys should be used for personal pleasure, not home defense or dog training. Secondly, toy safe cleaner should always be used if more than warm water is needed.

    Toy safe cleaner is cheap, antibacterial and easy to use. Just spray, rinse and let dry. I know it seems like an "extra" however it's just good maintenance, just like putting oil in your car. We do maintenance to avoid buying new things and keep the old working. So spending a few extra bucks on cleaner saves you from buying a whole new toy. It's really a money saver!

    So come on down to the Adult Shop and pick up a bottle of Adult Shop branded sex toy cleaner and receive a dollar off your next bottle! Can't beat being paid to be safe!

  • Erotic Sex Furniture

    If variety is the spice of life, new positions are the seasoning of sex. The KamaSutra is proof of just how many ways there are to combine two people in carnal pleasure. Imagine how many more you can make (and how much more comfortable it would be) if you had some pillows! No I'm not talking about a throw pillow… I'm talking about specially designed pillows… FOR SEX! Some positions are extremely intimate, powerful, or perhaps just easy. One thing that can detract from this however is the physical discomfort, strength limitations, or just not hitting the spot right. Specially designed pillows are shaped in such a way that each can be used at multiple positions and angles to allow for maximum comfort, allowing you to spend more time enjoying sex and less effort to get there. Do not underestimate just how much a little pillow can add to sex. Sexual stimulation comes in two flavors, physical and mental.It's pretty hard to keep your "mind in the game" when you're not sure if your legs can hold you up any longer. Some of the pillows on our website also feature restraint systems built right into them for added control and pleasure that can really step up the intensity. They are easy and simple to integrate into whatever awesome sexual activities you are currently enjoying. Each pillow comes with activity guides to offer you tons of new options for positions, but don't think you are limited to that! Combine two, or even three designs and put your partner in a pleasing position you both have never experienced before! Give pillows a try for a safe, easy, and long lasting solution to adding extra pleasure to sex. Come on down to the Adult shop to see what we have that can help you be a position guru.

  • The G-Spot, Myth or Mystical?!?

    The "G-spot". What is it? Is it real? What the heck is the "g" for? It's important to note here that while all of this is true, not all of it is as true for ALL women. Some women prefer to be stimulated by clitoral pressure, labia sensation, or others through penetration alone. As always talk to your partner to find out what works best for them. There are no "one trick ponies" that work on everyone. The G-spot was discovered officially by a DR. Gräfenberg who had the dubious female anatomy named after him finally in 1981 where it was given its ubiquitous name. While G-spot is often used to refer to the female sexual nerve center, it is also commonly used to refer to a similar but unrelated sexual center in men as well. We will cover both, but I just wanted to let you know that they are different pieces of anatomy even if they are similar in use.

    The female G-spot is located in between 2-4 inches inside the vaginal cavity. If a woman was lying on her back, it would be located on what would be the ceiling of the vaginal walls. It's a soft piece of tissue that has a slightly different texture than the rest of the vaginal walls, and also when pressed has a "spongy" feel to it. This bundle of tissue is often wrapped in many complex nerve endings which can give some women earth shaking orgasms. The nerves are wrapped around and throughout the tissue. Stimulation is best achieved by direct light-to-moderate pressure stroking done with two fingers, a toy, or the penis. The positioning is such that you likely won't hit it by accident. If your partner is ok with it, explore and find where it starts, ends, and where it's most sensitive. Work the sensitive areas and also ensure you are not putting too much pressure into them. Add this maneuver to your repertoire and use it whenever you can. Good times for everyone!

  • Fifty Shades of Kink, don't threaten me with a good time.

    So you've read 50 Shades of Grey, and are now interested in dipping your toes into the pool of bondage? It's excellent that you are interested in a new area of sexual excitement, but let's not jump in head first! First establish some ground rules with your partner. Have a "safe word" a word when said will halt all activity and get you both to find out what's working and what's not. Just as important but often neglected in first time bondage participants is the clear setting of roles. While role-play doesn't have to be a huge part of the fun if you don't like it, knowing who is holding the whip is important. Play with it and switch it up to find out what works best. Open communication goes really far for helping find out which roles are most exciting for you. Our staff can help guide you towards some easy beginner toys (fur lining, elastic, and non-locking cuffs) will excite, but are also forgiving of mistakes. We also have a large selection of books that will give you tons of ideas on how to fuel this fantasy fire.

  • Kegel Balls! Exercise your Orgasm

    This is an item we have in the shop that people often ignore. Kegel balls are specifically designed to sit within the vagina to exercise the Kegel muscles with less effort than manual contractions. The balls are inserted, and with normal activity they are jostled around. Inside of each ball is a specifically weighted bearing that provides an extra sense of urgency to the vaginal walls. The contraction of muscles happens all on its own and will provide you with stronger Kegel muscles in no time! Stronger Kegel muscles have been scientifically linked to stronger orgasms, tighter vaginal feel, even an easier time giving birth, so it may be the perfect gift for any woman in your life! If effortless exercise isn't your bag, we also feature the "Evi" by Aneros that works the Kegel muscles while giving the added benefit of stimulating the clit through its unique shape. Fun and fit with hands free orgasms!
