Time magazine featured the Magic Wand as one of the world's most influential gadgets. See the article HERE.
The Magic Wand, previously the “Hitachi Magic Wand”, became widely known after sex educators like Betty Dodson, Joni Blank and Dell Williams recommended the massager to their clients, starting in the 1970s. Since then consumers have loved it for its power, quality and reliable satisfaction. In 2015, the Magic Wand Original was joined on store shelves by the Magic Wand Rechargeable, a cordless massager offering the freedom to enjoy the wand’s pleasures almost anywhere, anytime.

“We are humbled that the Magic Wand has been recognized in this way by Time Magazine,” says Shay Martin, Vice President of Vibratex, Inc. Listed as #10 on their list of most influential gadgets!

We are delighted to hear that the ingenious Sili Saddle we recently began carrying has

received a very favorable mention on Dan Savage's April 26th, 2016 (sex toy special edition, episode 496) podcast, the Savage Lovecast which you can access through this link:

Combine the erotic with the decorative, add a little power exchange, a promise of heighten sensation, and an option for an intensely connective

experience, and you will get something that resembles modern erotic rope bondage, turning sex into art, art into sex, and preconceptions on their head.

This class offers an overview of the possibilities presented by rope bondage. You will learn a little about the 2000 year history of the practice. Then we will cover a few basic rope bondage techniques. Finally, we will explore how to use those techniques to heighten the sexuality and deepen connection between you and your partner.

“I went to the grocery store last week wearing nipple clamps and a butt plug under my clothes. Your turn.”
“The pseudo summer has arrived for us all here on the west coast and my mind has turned to summer things: Road trips, lazy bike rides, inviting a lover over for a ride in my sex swing now that my apartment is actually warm.”
“I bribed a biologist with mochas to show me lots and lots of cum once.”
“As if he read my mind, the man says, Yeah, that's for my dad. Last year he got me a blow up doll in the shape of a sheep.”
