A Guide to Choosing Your First Sex Toy

I know – you want your first dildo or vibe but don’t know what to buy ‘cause you’re not even sure what type of stimulation you want. Unfortunately this is one of those situations where you just have to take a ride in order to figure it out. Luckily, there are plenty of super affordable toys that span all of your options for pleasure.

Clit Stimulation

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 4.03.15 PMFor sole clit stimulation, the iSex Bullet is where it’s at. Not only is it super affordable, but you’ll never have to suffer the horrific reality of dead batteries. This baby roars to life with a simple plug-in to any USB port, and I mean it when I say it roars! This has seriously got to be one of the most powerful clit stimulators on the market. And best of all – it’s only ten bucks!

Dual Stimulation

pd1171-11_03The Le Reve Butterfly is legit the first thing I suggest to friends who ask for help when choosing their first toy. The rabbit-style vibe is definitely the most popular in dual stimulators, but some of them can be pretty intimidating in size. The Butterfly is just 3.25-inches long and 1.1-inches wide (think two fingers for size comparison). The feature that makes this vibe as so unicorn-special, though, is the butterfly’s antennas. Unlike typical rabbit vibes with flimsy, fluttering ears, the antennas are sturdy enough to push up against the clit, surrounding it with incredible vibrations.

Non-Vibrating

pd5502-29_05Simply put – rubber dildos are always going to be the most affordable dildos on the market. It’s true – some people have allergic reactions to this type of material, but I can tell you that, personally, I’ve never had a problem. The porous material just means you have to be super-duper hygienic with your rubber dildo, cleaning it after and before use, and ceasing use immediately upon irritation. I’d suggest our 7” King Cock because its tapered tip allows you to slowly ease into its size. My fav feature about it has got to be the suction-cup base because if you’ve never fucked a wall before, you have no idea what you’re missing.

Anal Stimulation

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 4.49.20 PMWhen choosing an anal plug, dildo, or vibe, you gotta make sure it has a wide or curved base so that it doesn’t slip too far inside. (Yes, that’s a thing that can actually happen, so please play safe!) You’ll want to start with a finger before graduating to a small (I repeat, SMALL) plug or dildo, then work your way up to whatever size is best for you. When purchasing an anal toy, pay special attention to the measurements, specifically the width or diameter. I’d suggest first-timers try out our super-smooth Mini Silicone Plug from the Anal Fantasy Collection. And don’t forget the lube! Like, a lot of lube.

iSex: Pipedream Takes On Teledildonics

Teledildonics: I doubt Alexander Graham Bell was expecting that one. Now that we’re all carrying mini computers around in our purses and pockets, it’s only logical that the next step in telecommunications would involve diversifying options for phone sex. Teledildonics, or cyberdildonics, involves the use of computers to remotely control sex toys. This unification of pleasure products and t-comm has drawn interest from the tech community, leading mainstream designers, engineers, and other bright minds into the niche to create something unique and brainy.

 pd1053-19

We launched our iSex range at the January 2015 ANME trade show, making this concept more accessible to the average adult toy enthusiast. Though not technically within the realm of true telecom-toy integration, iSex is a great introduction to a new category with a lot of growth potential. These pearly-white classics cannot be controlled remotely, but they were created with computers in mind. All 9 pieces in the collection are USB-powered – and I mean powered not rechargeable. These little guys don’t require batteries or hours on a charging station. Just plug them in to start the vibrations and unplug them when you’re finished. No more embarrassing buzzing in your suitcase for travelers, either! iSex vibes are even TSA-friendly, and you’ll never have to figure out those confusing travel lock options included on most tech toys.

pd1052-19_5_3

 Aside from iSex’s obvious tech tie-in, Pipedream kept things clean, simple, and user-friendly. The line sticks to tried-and-true favorites, like bullets, massage kits, and beads. The ABS plastic material is non-porous, meaning bacteria have nowhere to grow on these body-safe toys. The simplicity of the pieces makes them perfect for beginners while adding a novel touch for adult boutique veterans.

The future of pleasure products is limited by physics alone. Though teledildonics started as a sort of one-off trend, the growing number of designers and engineers behind the movement are changing the landscape of adult novelty. Not only is the bar being raised for manufacturers, but the niche itself is crossing into mainstream attention, and Pipedream is no stranger to shaking things up with every new release. If there is one thing of which PD product developers never tire, it’s growing to stay ahead of the game.

XXX Babes with Brains

Kendra Sunderland isn’t the only college-educated lady who’s been seduced by the adult industry. Here are some of our other fav XXX babes with brains.

Nina Hartley is, quite simply, a porn icon. With over 1,000 films under her belt (err, panties?), the star has been an active performer since 1982. She, too, came to the adult world in college, during her sophomore year of nursing school, though never dropped out – actually, she graduated magna cum laude, the second highest ranking of the Latin honors. Beyond her medical career (she was a registered nurse until 2001), Nina is the face of sex-positive feminism and remains an outspoken activist and highly respected performer.

Belle Knox made overnight infamy with a college scandal too. Now the 2015 AVN Performer of the Year, She was originally shot into headlines when her Duke fellows recognized her in porn and leaked her real name. The mere fact that Belle was coming from such a prestige background astounded the world, and she’s been an incredible force for proving that sex workers can have brains, brains can have wild sex – and it’s all okay!

Sovereign Syre, like Kendra, accidentally stumbled into the adult industry. Though she had participated in tons of erotic and fetish photography, she never considered porn until a video she made for an ex-boyfriend surfaced online. Within a year she was shooting for the biggest names in porn, becoming one of the top girl/girl performers to date. She, too, was driven away from her education, leaving a prestigious graduate writing program “on account of having trouble fitting in. It wasn’t easy being a 20-year-old girl in a graduate program where the average student was a 35-year-old white guy with a ton of publishing credits.” Sov didn’t let that keep her down though, and we’re so stoked that she continues to write.

We are avid preaches of all of the simultaneous sensations for intense stimulation and the most powerful orgasm… but I can already hear the spine-chilling shrieks of lovers who stumble across someone with a second, biological ween. Have no fear! That’s what strap-less DP strap-ons are for, duh. With super-stretchy rings to accommodate most sizes and put a squeeze on performance let downs, they hand just below your natural parts and feature smooth, tapered tips to ease insertion.

AVN’s Intimate Magazine got up-close and personal with Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino to reflect on his massive success, from working his way up from unloading trucks to now overseeing a conglomeration of adult.

“Think back only four or five years ago at what adult novelty retail looked like,” said VP of sales Steve Sav. “Look at it now. He’s taken these mainstream ideas and developed them for the adult retail market…”

Real Customer Utilizes Anal Fantasy Collection as Medical Aid!

Screen Shot 2014-04-21 at 12.36.36 PM

The Vibrating Curve features a curved shaft and beaded tip perfect for P-Spot stimulation, while the whisper-quiet motor delivers mind-blowing vibrations directly to your most sensitive area. Try filling yourself with the Vibrating Curve during other sexual stimulation and you’ll climax harder than ever before!

I am a male who uses your Anal Fantasy Vibrating Curve product for medical reasons: I have pelvic floor dysfunction, a condition where the muscles of the pelvic floor, including those of the perineum and the internal rectal muscles, go into constant spasm. This causes pain, but also can make it nearly impossible to defecate without tearing the internal and external sphincter muscles.

To that end, I undergo regular pelvic floor physical therapy. In fact, there are large practices that specialize in pelvic floor PT. I have advanced to the point that I can do SOME internal sphincter relaxation/stretching.  My doctor recommended the TheraWand device (a curved plastic instrument without a vibrator).  So I bought that, but also reasoned that something like it… but with a vibrating function, would be superior at relaxing internal rectal muscles. That is when I came across the Vibrating Curve at a nearby adult toy store.

It turns out that I was right. Your product is vastly superior for this purpose. It also has the the bonus benefit of allowing men to discover prostate massage (who wouldn’t otherwise even think about it), and I’m sure that women would find it more pleasurable and effective as well.

REAL TALK! Avoiding Painful Anal

sabrina_loves_anal_1000x1000_loNow that the word’s gotten out that I’m a Sexpert, I get flooded with sex ed questions both in and out of the industry. REAL TALK! will cover, well, real questions that real people have really asked me, and the answers that I really gave them, and really, truly believe in. Seriously! These are real concerns and curiosities that come up time and time again – so never feel embarrassed or ashamed because even though no one talks about it, I think it’s safe to say that everyone is all about the sexy times – so what’s wrong with becoming more educated about it? :)

QUESTION: A finger feels good back there but when we try anal – I cannot describe how intensely painful it is – we immediately have to stop. We’re wet, we want it, what’s the prob?

ANSWER: STOOOOOOP!!!! You can’t just hop from a little bb finger to a big, giant COCK!! You gotta do some anal training first. Gradually go from a finger, to a small anal plug, to a small (anal-safe) toy, then maaaaybe to a ween. Also, use a CRAP TON of lube. I like silicone lube because it hardly dries up, therefore less application / interruptions amidst your sexing – but you can neverever use silicone lube with silicone toys.

Remember to TAKE. IT. SLOOOOW!!!!! Any time you put something new in your butt, do it with a lotta lube and a lotta patience. If it hurts, stop. Don’t ever force anything that hurts. EVER. If it continues to hurt – even after slow, patient, gradual anal training – then your butt hole just might not be into teh penetrationz.

Check out our Anal Fantasy Collection – it has like, everything you’ll ever need to put in your butt. Our Silicone Plugs are available in 6 graduating sizes that make for a perfect anal training kit. For your initial tushy trial, though, I’d suggest our Beginner’s Fantasy Kit – it features an array of shapes and textures for easy experimentation.

If you want some more personal, custom toy recommendations for your butt sexpedition, you can contact your favorite Sexpert anytime via email at sabrina@pipedreamproducts.com. :)

Pipedream Extreme Dollz Instructions & Care

Sexpert&BBBOur Pipedream Extreme Dollz blew everyone’s minds at the January ANME show! Although they haven’t hit retail shelves just yet, we want you to get to know our girls (and guys!) inside and out. You know, why not actually learn a little about your new lover before you hit the sheets? ;)

Sexpert Sabrina got up-close and personal with Big Beautiful Becky to find out just how to best and most safely care and clean her fellow Pipedream Extreme Dollz.

 

ENTRY-LEVEL DOLLZ INSTRUCTIONS

How to Inflate: DO NOT OVER INFLATE. To avoid over-inflation, do not use an electric compressor. Instead, use a manual pump to blow the doll up to 90% capacity. Let it rest for ten minutes so the air can evenly distribute within the doll before inflating completely. The less air inside the doll, the less strain will be placed on it during use.

Cleaning Instructions: Rinse the doll with warm water, then gently scrub with toy cleaner using your hands or a soft cloth. Avoid using rough cloths or sponges, as this could damage the material. After scrubbing, rinse again with warm water. Pat dry with a lint-free towel.

Rinse the Fanta Flesh in warm water, then scrub with toy cleaner both internally and externally using your hands or a soft cloth. Rinse with warm water, then pat dry with a lint-free cloth. Sprinkle internally and externally with Fanta Flesh Revive powder to dry excess moisture and help maintain the material’s softness.

ALL LEVEL DOLLZ
