Knotty Fun: An Intro to Rope Bondage
A question we've been getting more and more often in-store is about how to navigate the negative sexual side effects of antidepressants. We’re not doctors and we can’t offer medical advice, but we are sharing what we hope are some creative ways to get around or work with these side effects.
There are a lot of books about sex out there. As with our selection of toys, we have chosen to sell online and in our stores books that we think have something special, smart, or fun to offer. Take a look at our overview here, and check out the staff and customer book reviews. There is certain to be a book or two that suit your particular interests and needs.
There are a bewildering variety of sex toys that can be used by someone who owns a penis, including vibrators, dildos or other butt toys (hello prostate!). The toys here, however, are specifically designed to be used on the genitals, and so deserve some closer consideration.
All of our harnesses are designed to be used with a dildo with a flared base (flange). We do not carry any dildo and harness all-in-one units because they tend to be poorly made from inferior materials.

Silicone also warms quickly and maintains heat so it's more comfortable more quickly. Silicone is so hardy that you can boil it for a few minutes for extra cleanliness or throw it into the dishwasher...
Dildos come in a plethora of shapes and sizes. There's a lot of choice, and these days buying a dildo can be a matter of style as much as a practical decision about what rocks your boat. The top things to consider when choosing a dildo are its size, its shape, and the material it's made of.
There seems to be an almost infinite variety of vibrating toys; choosing among them can be intimidating. What we'll do here is break down the choice by a number of factors you'll want to consider when looking through our offerings.
Toy Tips Always (always, always!) use lube for any kind of anal play. Silicone and Cyberskin toys should not be used with silicone-based lube. Jelly toys should be stored away from each other and your Cyberskin toys (they'll melt!). Condoms are recommended for shared toys, and essential for toys used both anally and vaginally.

Discovering lube as a grown-up is like discovering what your clit does as a kid. "Who," you think, "was the brilliant mind behind this idea? And why did I not know about this sooner? Why did I memorize the quadratic equation in high school, but not hear a word about this vastly more life-improving substance?" Below you will find an introduction to this lovely stuff.
The phrase "safe, sane, and consensual" is the cornerstone of responsible BDSM. This can be expanded upon to include such notions as:
