The Woman Who Mistook Her Sex Toy Rash For An STI!

As you will read, plating insertables of any kind is a dangerous gimmick to be avoided at all costs. Really, It doesn’t matter if your spending £10,000 on a gold plated vibrator or one of the many who jumped on the Chromed Carbon Steel balls masquerading as Silver balls from a well known book, the engineering principles are the same and certainly not fit for purpose. 

As if to warrant this, back in 2013 at Erotica I had an interesting conversation with a customer. She told me that a few years earlier she’d hooked up with a new partner with an interest in kink. She told me that he bought a lot of toys to their play, and at the time she thought he also bought her an STI and as this was at over 6months into the relationship, quite rightly he, and his toys, were thrown in the trash.

After some very painful, not to mention embarrassing medical intervention it was discovered that she had a foreign body embedded in her vagina. Once removed and analised it was found to be a slither of chrome plate. Unfortunately she said her favourite of the toys that he’d used on her were the metal ones and thus she could only conclude that they, not he, were the culprits of all her discomfort. I asked her if she ever got back in touch with him and she just told me that she’d learnt that you can tell a lot about a guy by the quality of his sex toys. Pay attention guys!

Do Intelligent People Have Better Sex Lives?

Does a High IQ Equal a Better Sex Life?

It’s long been the subject of debate that the more intelligent you are, the more likely you are to have a better sex life, but where do you draw the lines? Is a simple person more likely to enjoy a simple sex life? Does intelligence mean better informed choices, a bigger sexual appetite and the desire to try different things? The answer is yes, yes, yes! But you need to be clever in the sense that your mind is a very powerful sexual tool. Think sexy to be sexy. Get that imagination going and visualize your desires.

A survey in the Telegraph, carried out by Lovehoney, begs the question

‘Does a high IQ equal a high sex drive?’

This survey shows that in Universities and Colleges around the country, Cambridge leads the field for greatest amount of sex toy purchases, closely followed by Oxford, but does that therefore demonstrate an intelligence / sex drive correlation?

In general, people who strive to achieve great things and better themselves, tend to try and do this in all aspects of their lives and consequently, their drive in the bedroom, is no different to the boardroom. The change in attitude to sex and sex lives over the last few years has also helped us be more open and relaxed towards trying new things. Consequently, a sex toy is not seen as a replacement for a partner or something that should be used alone and in secret, rather than an enhancement to your sex life and something that can be enjoyed together.

In conclusion, we’re not saying you have to be a total genius to enjoy a wonderful sex life. Harness your emotional and creative intelligence in a positive way and it will increase your enjoyment. Thoughtful people will always make better partners than selfish and uninspiring ones, regardless of how beautiful they are.

A perfect toy to get your creative juices flowing, is the Marylebone Dildo  – available now on our website in two sizes and two curves, to suit all needs and desires. Please use intelligently.

Hampton Court Cock Ring by some of our Etsy customers:

-I’ve several cock rings, but this one is by far the best. Beautifully made. The shape

works really well and is very comfortable.

– Fast and reliable shipment. Delighted to see the nice packaging and the unique seal. What I like the most is its unique wave like design, really different from other round ‘rings’. Fits perfectly and the thickness is just nice. The ring is perfectly designed and manufactured. A really beautiful item. Thank you!
