Eco-Friendly Sex Toys of the Month

In February 2011 on February 2, 2011 at 4:14 am

This month, Hump-Day Gazette is featuring not one, but three sex toys that fell under the category of eco-friendly. While we have not been fortunate enough to personally test these (please blitz us if you have!), these caught our eye after being featured in Time magazine in an article titled ‘Sex and the Eco-City: Getting It On Is Getting Greener.’ While the article cited a wide variety of examples including toys made out of mahogany, stainless steel and glass, these three caught our eye.

If you want to engage in some light BDSM, but completely turned off by the cows that would have to die to get leather restraints, turn to Super Cuffs. A pair of neoprene cuffs with nylon straps, unusually secure Velcro closures, and stainless steel D-rings, they are adjustable, lightweight, and easy to clean. A genuine win-win-win situation for you, your partner, and cows everywhere! [$40 Babeland]

A variation on the Silver Bullet featured in our September 2010 issue, the Solar Bullet gives your clit/balls/nipples/whatever you choose the same great vibrations, but is powered by the sun instead of Double A batteries. 8 hours in the sun means 1 hour of vibrations, with a choice from 2 speeds.

Finally, we have the Earth Angel. Hand crank for four minutes and get thirty plus minutes of vibration! (It’s really difficult to resist making a hand job/fingering joke right now.) Everything from the packaging to the toy itself is made from recycled plastics. It even has three speeds, so you don’t have to sacrifice orgasms for the environment- though the $80 price tag is a bit steep.

Sex Toy of November: Cock Rings

In November 2010 on December 17, 2010 at 1:37 am

Too often, sex toys are associated primarily with women. However, there are toys that can spice up sex for guys too. While a variety of different toys are created for men, one of the male sex toy staples is the cock ring. Not all men respond to cock rings the same way, but some bonuses of wearing one on the penis during masturbation, oral sex, or intercourse can be larger and harder erections, heightened orgasms and sensitivity, and delayed ejaculation. A fun variation on the basic cock ring, especially when having sex with a woman, is the vibrating rock ring. The vibrations both offer an enjoyable buzz on the penis and stimulate the girl’s clitoris during intercourse. There is a wide variety in price and quality, from disposables that offer less intense vibrations for less than ten dollars to rechargeable cock rings with 6 vibration settings for over $100. Pictured here is Babeland’s Iconic Ring, which is somewhere in between. Priced at $35, it is rechargeable, water resistant and backed by a one-year warranty. So guys, if you’re tired of girls having all the vibrating fun, one of these may be the way to go!


Sex Toy of September

In September 2010 on December 16, 2010 at 5:11 am

Vibrator virgin?  The Silver Bullet is a great toy for any number of people, but especially perfect for a first time buy.  For one thing, the Bullet is only $15, a great find for people who aren’t sure if vibrators are something they are interested in. Additionally, its small size and sleek look make it less intimidating than some other toys, and the intensity of vibration is adjustable, allowing you to figure out what feels best and adjust the vibrations accordingly.  The Silver Bullet is very versatile – it can be used for vaginal or anal penetration, plus stimulating nipples, testicles, head of the penis, or clitoris.  While also fun for solo sexual expeditions, its small size is also an asset in that it can be used with ease while having sex with a partner.  The one complaint is a short life span (sometimes only 3 months), but the orgasm to dollar ratio is still pretty darn good!
