We're not sure. Jelly rubber that smells like chemicals might still be off-gassing, and Health Canada thinks that may be harmful. Better-quality rubber (such as what you get in the Vibratex models) is more stable; furthermore, the mate...

A while back, in an effort to cater to the "new" female audience, sex toy manufacturers started making toys that looked less like penises. Another reason is that Japanese sex toys are prohibited from looking like penises, so manufactu...

A gift certificate might be the safest choice, as it's difficult to choose a toy for someone you don't know. Books, massage oils, and chocolate body paint also make very good gifts, and are easier to give and receive between people who a...

Many people choose a vibrating cock ring to share with a partner. Another great toy that can be used during intercourse is the We-vibe. The We-vibe sits inside the vagina pressing up against the g-spot with the outside arm pushing agains...
