Ignite your Sex Life Series – Setting the Scene

Work stressing you out? School work keeping you up all night?  Everyone’s got reasons for skipping sexy time with their partner.  If you want to get things going again, one of the first things to consider is your physical space.  It’s like a garden, if you want to produce juicy fresh produce all summer long, you have to plan ahead, plant all your seeds and then weed and water that mother-fucker regularly!
First Step: Make a PlanDildos on a Drying Rack
  • Set a Time for your Sex Date
  • Clear your Schedule (Remember to give yourself time for warm-up and aftercare)
  • Arrange Babysitters/Petsitters
Step Two: Prepare the Physical Space
  • Clean the Room of Clutter
  • Change the Sheets (or clean whatever surface you plan to dirty)
  • Clean and Gather Your Sex Supplies (dildos, strap-on harness, anal plugs, lube, blindfolds, etc…) and put them within reach 
  • If you can, it might be worth it to splurge on a hotel room
    * cat staring at a naked person in bedSpecial Instructions for all you fur baby loving queers out there: 
  • Get the Dogs and Cats Sleeping in their own Beds!!! 
  • Find a Dog Bed or a Cat Tree (Budget tip: give them anything they like to lay on anyway like an old couch pillow or towel)
    • Short Term Solution: kick them out of the room & give them a special treat or toy to keep them busy
Step Three: Mood Setting Tips
  • Lower the Lights (lamps with dimmer switches, or keeping a lamp covering scarf handy are great alternatives to candles) 
  • Set aside some sex fuel for as long as you have planned
    • Water, seltzer/juice spritzers, wine or champagne are all great options
    • Fruit or other light snacks
  • Gather Fan, AC or space heater to maintain a comfortable temperature, considering how much clothing you will be wearing, and how active you plan to be
  • Consider audible distractions
    • If music isn’t your thing, get a white noise machine or use a fan outside the door

 

Hope this helps get the juices flowing!

How to: Sex Toy Go Bag

Dildo on Headboard with Lube, Vibrator, Nipple Clamps, Blindfold, and NJoy metal wandYou never know when or where the mood will strike, and we want you to be prepared!  Whether your going on a spontaneous sexy trip, or you and your partner(s) want to partake in some exhibitionist fantasies, always be ready with some basic supplies!

  1. Sex Toys – duh!
    • Unless you’re already wearing our perfect pack and play Shilo, you’ll want your go-to dildo within reach
    • Anal plugs and Mini Vibes are great for added stimulation!
    • Nipple clamps and cock rings are super compact and easy to pack
  2. Accessories
    • Strapon Harness – we recommend the spare parts Joque, so comfortable, you can put it on before you go so you don’t waste a single second of sexy time
    • Blindfolds – limiting some senses can heighten others 😉
    • Scarves are great multi-purpose items! They can be blindfolds, restraints, even a harness!
    • Lube!  Water-based lubricants are recommended for use with silicone toys!  Silicone lube is super long lasting and is a great pairing for glass and metal toys.
  3. Safer Sex Supplies
    • If you aren’t able to wash off all the dust bunnies on your silicone toys, just throw a condom over it!
    • Female Condoms are the most under-rated safer sex supply I know of. They are perfect for anal play, e
      specially when you want to use one toy in both your lover’s front hole and back hole.
    • Gloves, gloves, gloves. For when you don’t have time to wash your hands, they also make a great dental dam, especially great if you want to have a little pocket for your tounge/clit/dick.

Stay Safe and Have Fun!

Platypus Defy Categories

Platypus PinPlati is an orginal piece of art was commission from JB Brager as part of our new local artist series- where we partner with artists to create awesome projects. This is our first project a Platypus pin and we couldn’t be happier.

The Platypus is an amazing animal. They look really cool, they are the only mammal that lays eggs, they have bills, beaver tails and literally have venom in their ankles. To top it off- Platypuses and dolphins are the only animals that have somatosensory so when I say they are amazing they really are.

You might be wondering why all this platypus talk?  The platypus defies categories, rules and expectations. Scientists used to talk about it as a hybrid animals but I think it of it as more of a perfect evolution. It has a lot of awesome features and language and taxonomy just doesn’t know what to do with it. To this day there is no universal plural- is it platypuses? platypus? Platypli? Platypodes? you decide, they are all great choices.

The Platypus questions the way we have been taught to talk about categories, science and absolutes. The platypus lives its own life. It is perfect just the way it is, it has everything it needs and doesn’t need to fit in the lines.

This month for Pride we give you a Platypus DEFY CATEGORIES.

Go big or go home…or stay and work up to it.

Leroy Silicone DildoThere has been a social media buzz about Leroy. Well, here it is. We debuted Leroy at a trade show earlier this year to a great reception. Such a great reception that we’ve been filling wholesale orders non-stop! Horray for our amazing retails. You can buy Leroy from our good friends at Babeland, Pleasure Chest, Good Vibrations, and Come as You are.  In the past few months folks have been buying Leroy and posting it and wondering why it isn’t on our site…well now it is. Leroy is in all 4 skintones- shipping now.

Leroy is big and girthy.  Seriously big and girth. Our biggest dildo by far. We’re talking 9.5 inches of insertable length and 2.5 around. Leory is intact with detailed foreskin- yay forekskin! The foreskin not only looks beautiful but helps for create a smoother ride (less friction).   Leroy is dual density silicone with a posable core (just like Shilo, Carter and Mason) but bigger and heartier. Leroy works with O-ring harness or as a stand alone for solo play.

So go really big with Leroy or choose something smaller and work your way up (or don’t) – no matter what you decide- play save and have a good time.

Thanks for the love and support.

Stand to Pee

An overview of why someone might want to stand to pee from public bathrooms, camping and combat.

As the owners of adult toy company New York Toy Collective we’ve had countless requests for a representational silicone STP (Stand-To- Pee). For those that are unfamiliar with STPs, they are products that allow folks without penises to pee while standing up.

Sam STP

Sam

STPs come in a variety of forms, the two most common forms are representational (looks like a penis) and non-representational (does not look like a penis). In March of 2016 New York Toy Collective debuted Sam a representational silicone STP available in four skin tones. For those looking for a non-representational STP we offer the PStyle in a variety of colors. In fact, STP devices are so helpful that are given to women in US Military during deployment to Iraq.

Standing up to pee is useful in many situations. For some people that identify as transgender or as gender non-conforming, standing up to pee can be essential in public rest rooms or urinals. Not all transgender or gender non-conforming people use STPs; some people do, and some people don’t. Some people find that STPs (and packers) help with dysphoria and confidence, while others use them as a matter of safety, and some simply for the aesthetic.

STPs offer a great convenience for those that do not identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. Standing up to pee is offers connivence, safety and ease. Standing up to pee makes using public rest rooms, particularly dirty ones, much easier- they are also great for nightclubs, and camping trips. For those of us that are used to traveling and squatting or lining dirty wet toilets bowls standing to pee offers a great convenience saving time, energy, and peace of mind.

Mason refused to use a stunt double for the action scenes calming “I’m very realistic and my fans would have it no other way.”

The newest cast member from Orange Is The New Black donned our best selling toy the Shilo in her new music video Break Free.

Ruby describes the video as “A short film about gender roles, Trans, and what it is like to have an identity that deviates from the status quo.”.  You can see it below and our cameo at the 3:29 mark.

But wait there’s more.  Ruby released a behind the scenes look of the making of the Break Free video where she not only wears it but puts it to work.
