Many single women purchase vibrators, dildos, butt plugs, etc. because let’s face it, single people don’t have that “guaranteed sex” option like people who are on the dating market do. Many single women have at least more than one toy in their possession, so the question that I ask is would it be a wise decision for a women to introduce her boyfriend to her sex toys?
Now, the most ideal setting would be if your boyfriend brings up the topic of sex toys before you. That way you know he is interested and possibly willing to partake in sex-with-sex toys with you. This would also save you the trouble of having to think of a way of subtly bringing up the subject without scaring him off. However, I don’t really think the idea of sex toys is “scary” – but you never know.
My second point is some men may THINK that watching their woman use sex toys is hot, until they see the actual toy and become unsatisfied with the size of their own manhood. You don’t want your boyfriend to be jealous of your special toy, do you?

The majority of lubricants that we are all familiar with are loaded with parabens, sugar and glycerin. Parabens have been linked to major health concerns, and sugar and glycerine can cause yeast infections. These lubes are also often petrochemical-based.
Luckily there are a number of natural household items that are green, environmentally friendly, and act just the same if not better as your typical store-bought lube. These will do wonders for your sex life. Organic coconut oil smells great, is edible, and works amazing as a lubricant. It also has natural antibacterial properties, but its best not to use it in conjunction with condoms. Honey is another great alternative, if you don’t mind its extreme stickiness. If you would prefer to purchase an actual lubricant, Pjur is a German-made pure silicone lube. Silicone is ideal as a lubricant base because it stays on the surface of your skin, doesn’t absorb, and is hypoallergenic. Another company called Hathor makes petroleum, glycerin and paraben-free lubes. They flavour their products with Stevia as opposed to sugar, ginseng, cinnamon and tangerine – sounds good enough to eat!
When it comes to purchasing green condoms, your best bet would be to invest in the Glyde brand. They are no more biodegradable than other store brands, but their workers are treated ethically and the company is especially careful about where their rubber is sourced.
If toys are your thing, silicone dildos and vibrators are the best. Companies like We Vibe, Lelo, Happy Valley and Fun Factory offer rechargeable toys. Earth Angel even offers a wind-up toy made out of recycled plastic if you have no access to an electric plug to charge your toys. Can anyone say naughty camping trip?
A few extra changes you can make in your bedroom and lifestyle to go green is to shower together with the person you’re dating. Save water and have some steamy fun. Sleep naked. Purchase bamboo sheets; they whisk away sweat. Also, replace all of your candles with soy or beeswax candles; they smell better and are a lot better for you and the environment.

Here are some interesting facts you probably didn’t know about all of your favourite sex toys and lubricants. Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for a history lesson on vibrators, dildos, lubes, etc.
Fact: Sex toys and vibrators are banned for retail sale in Alabama and Mississippi. Harsh! Maybe their governments are afraid people will stop dating each other if sex toys become easily available.
* In 350BC olive oil was used for purposes other than cooking (think lube)
* In 1200AD the Chinese invented the cock ring
* In 1400 AD the dildo was invented in Italy. Usually made from wood or leather, I’m sure a lot of olive oil was used for proper usage (or at least I hope so, ouch!)
* The vibrator was invented in the 19th century to reduce ‘hysteria’ in women
* In 1899, McClure’s magazine published America’s first ad for a home electric vibrator. It was called the “Vibratile” and promised to cure headaches, wrinkles and of course, hysteria.
* In 1941 the first sex doll was created in Nazi Germany. Figures.
* In 1998 the infamous “Rabbit” made it’s appearance on HBO’s Sex in the City. After the episode aired, the demand for the pink pleasure toy skyrocketed.

Sex toys are beautiful things. We can use on ourselves, on our ladies, or on both of us together. The majority are sophisticated, sleek, sexy items that make us feel nothing but good. But if you search deep into the adult dating history archives, you will find an array of rather frightening sex play things.
Here’s a compilation of the top five most disturbing fuck toys we’ve ever come across:
1. Pony on Wheels Driving a Plastic Dildo
It’s a child’s toy gone horrifyingly wrong! It looks like Little Pony is out to get his revenge on all you naughty girls that used to abused him when you were young. How does this work exactly? She opens her legs and you drive it in? I don’t think this thing is safe.
2. Robotic Vagina
Um, this is supposed to be a ‘robotic vagina’, but really, it looks more like something made to crush a man’s balls or eat pubic hair. I’m definitely keeping my dick far, far away from that thing.
3. Purple Thunder
First of all, that shade of purple frightens me. But more importantly, why is full of spikes? WHY?!
4. Beer Can Blow Job
Um, this blow job has teeth. And it’s in a beer can. Because that’s what every dude wants, a teethy round of beer can head. By the way, that mouth frightens the crap out of me – really, I feel like it screams cannibal.
5. The All in One
It’s a penis! It’s a vagina! It’s boobs! I can only imagine that this sex toy was invented for serial killers, in the hopes that after they’ve fucked this plastic mish mash of parts they’ll no longer want to go out and cut a real human being into pieces.
