Pubic Service Announcement *  
Good Vibes rules me. If you ever need to shop for sex toys, condoms, erotica or porn, I highly recommend them. Whether you're straight, lesbian, gay or bi, they have something for you. They are women- and worker-owned - a sex positive company where all of the staff are sex educators, and they know how to treat customers - and that's not an innuendo. More companies should have customer service like theirs. And hey - where else can you find an Antique Vibrator Museum?

If you have any questions about GV, or if you have questions about sex toys, erotica or safer sex, feel free to ask me if you'd rather. I'm always up for a good discussion about sex. ;D



* It's spelled that way on purpose, so if you comment correcting my spelling, I will laugh and point at you.
 
 
I feel: pleasedpleased

Well, my interest in sex toys is completely theoretical rather than practical at the moment, but if I ever moved away from the parents and/or got a lock on my bedroom door then this would probably change fairly soon. :-)

I'm no expert, but from what I've seen in the past, it always seems to me that ladies have far more interesting sex toys than men. Now admittedly this prostate gland stimulator certainly looks promising, but it's not nearly as inherently stupidly cool as a vibrating duck. On the other hand, I suppose the amount of porn made with men primarily in mind outweighs that made with women primarily in mind by an obscene margin, crap pun intended. I suppose there's a sort of balance to it, but I'd like both genders to get the best of both worlds, y'know.

Oh yes, something I've been meaning to ask you. What's your favourite colour, if you have one?

I can explain why this is to you at some point, if you need me to. And honestly, I've often thought that many of the toys for men look really cool - but I've never known a guy who wanted to try the really cool ones. Most guys, if they get toys, get something for anal play.

What's your favourite colour, if you have one?

I definitely do - red, specifically dark, deep red, close to burgundy. Why?

I can explain why this is to you at some point, if you need me to.

I'd imagine that one large part of it is because different ladies like to be pleased in different ways (different areas of the anatomy, different motions, different patterns of repetition or variety, different speeds, different materials, different pressures, different induced thought patterns, er... what else?) and there are a considerable variety of different techniques which could be used, requiring a considerable variety of apparatus for so doing. However, I don't believe that's all of it by any means - there could well be much more to it than that which I do not appreciate.

Why?

Why do you think? Completely innocent reasons, of course! ;-)
Vicki: Bi As Me!hermorrine on April 18th, 2003 09:33 am (UTC)
Well, that's definitely very much true. There's also the basic fact that many women have problems orgasming, period - so what you're saying about there needing to be a variety is very important. What works for one woman is not necessarily transferable to another, whereas with men the same general things seem okay. This is not to say that all men like the same things - just that in my experience, men are less complicated than women in this aspect.

Why do you think? Completely innocent reasons, of course! ;-)

Hrrrumph. When you say it like that, of course I believe you...

Re: would you like to pet my kitty?
It's not quite as bad as the dildos shaped like jesus, mary and the saints. I'm agnostic and I still find that a bit disturbing.

Re: would you like to pet my kitty?
LOL...that is horrible! My sister actually said she's seen a baby jesus butt plug...i nearly fell out of my chair! who comes up with this stuff??
Vicki: Hrrrrmmm?hermorrine on April 18th, 2003 02:59 pm (UTC)
Re: would you like to pet my kitty?
I think the baby jesus butt plug is made by the same company. I just didn't want to mention it, because... just ick.

That rubber duckie vibrator is incredibly cute, and parental-unit-visit safe. Might have to look into getting one of those.
Vicki: Hrrrrmmm?hermorrine on April 18th, 2003 03:01 pm (UTC)
Yes and no. Apparently once you squeeze it, it starts vibrating, so the gig would be up. Although you could just take out the batteries, I would guess... but wouldn't they wonder why it needed batteries? I recommend just hiding it away. I live with my parents - they just don't come into my room and my room is at the opposite end of the house from theirs, so I don't worry about it.

Re:
Well, I don't live with my parents and haven't for four years, but my mother, being the most curious person on the earth, will go through my stuff when she comes to visit, just to see what's there. Drives me up the freaking wall.

And aren't you supposed to be enjoying a sex-filled weekend? Why are you on LJ? :)

A friend of mine recently introduced me to the "Will it float?" running gag on David Letterman's show. Suddenly I want to know whether vibroduck floats or not. The site says it does, but I'd like to find out for myself...

Ah, I <3 goodvibes. I have a local loyalty to Grand Opening, especially since with a few friends employed there I have access to a discount, and also like The Stockroom for selection, actual pictures of toys, and kink factor. Main benefit to GoodVibes, IMHO, being supporting its non-toy features like articles etc. Not sure about ownership etc. at the stockroom but grand opening is cool on the employment/ownership front.
