FAQ: I can’t stay wet enough! Which lube do I use?

What kind of lube do I use with the King Cock 7″ dildo? I used a gel which I believe is water-based but it didn’t stay lubricated for long.

I just had to show yous my new favorite toy. The average dick can shoot cum at like, 28 mph and our new King Cock squirters totes give those biological weens a run for their money!

A water-based lube is totally safe to use with your King Cock – or any toy that’s made with any material, really – and that’s the beauty of this concoction. But the downside of water-based lube is the fact that, well, it’s made with fucking water. And water like, evaporates and shit. So it’s totally typical for your water-based lube to to dry up and require multiple applications.

My current fave silicone toy, the Crush Cuddle Bear is the shit 'cause it has two motors - one in the head and one in the clit stimulator, the latter of which is perfectly thumb-shaped to press right the fuck up against your clit. It's a beautiful thing, really.

The alternative that I always suggest is a silicone-based lube. This shit lasts foooorrrreeevvveerrrrr! And with minimal re-application comes less interruptions. It’s also super-duper slick and I especially recommend using silicone-based lubes for anal. BUT!!! There is also a downside to my favorite type of lube – you can’t use silicone-based lubes with silicone toys. The silicone components react to one another, causing damage to the silicone toy. So, sorry frandz, you’ll just have to buck the fuck up and tolerate the re-applications of water-based lube whenever you’re using a silicone toy.

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. :)

FAQ: Can I Clean My Shock Therapy Luv Gloves? Are They Compatible with Massage Oils or Lubes?

luv gloves

Charles Dera was more comfortable than ever during his erotic e-stim massage!

We’ve shocked thousands with our best-selling Fetish Fantasy Series Shock Therapy devices — with 10 unique items to choose from, there’s an e-stim toy for anyone! Electrosex is still a relatively niche fetish, and as with any beginner’s item, there are sure to be lots of questions! Recently, many customers have inquired about cleaning our Luv Gloves, as well as other materials and maintenance questions. Here you’ll find the answers from your favorite Pipedream ElectroSexperts!

  • Shock Therapy items cannot be heated over 212ºF/100ºC.
  • You should never use an iron with any Shock Therapy item.
  • Do not use tap water to wash your Luv Gloves — the chlorine in tap water will create a chemical reaction against the silver yarn. If tap water must be used, make sure you boil it for sterilization before letting it cool for cleaning. Use soap of a neutral pH value.
  • Avoid any and all grease and oil. Sorry friends, but this includes lubes and lotions.
  • Avoid all cleaning substances containing sodium chlorate. Cleaning substances containing sodium hydroxide are acceptable.
  • To prevent color change due to oxidation, it is suggested your Luv Gloves be stored in a sealed bag and placed in a dry, airy storage area of normal room temperature. Do not keep them in sunlight for long. In fact, just think of these as vampire gloves and avoid sunlight at all costs. Slight color change of material is usually caused by storage condition, but will not effect the usage of the gloves.
  • Keep your Luv Gloves away from acidic environments.

So there ya have it, frisky friends! Safe sex goes beyond protective barriers — be sure to always follow proper guidelines for any and all sex toys. To play it safe with your Luv Gloves, we discourage any use of oils, lotions, and lubes, and recommend spot cleaning only.

You really can place any Shock Therapy adhesive pads over any muscular area – they work especially well for sore or tense muscles – but you must always avoid the chest.

FAQ: Can I put my Icicles Glass Massager in the microwave?

Icicles are perfect for temperature play AND awesome photography!

Exposing your Icicles to drastic temperature changes can compromise their strength or damage the material. Methods like microwaving or freezing can also make the item too hot or too cold, which could hurt your tender pleasure parts too. Instead, we suggest these safer, gradual temperature changing methods.

HEATING your Icicles:

  1. The Icicle should begin at room temperature. Place it in an empty bowl.
  2. Fill the bowl with warm water.
  3. After 5 minutes, drain just enough water to leave the Icicle partially submerged before refilling it with hot, not boiling, water.
  4. After 5 more minutes, remove your Icicle and pat dry.

COOLING your Icicles:

  1. Place your room temperature Icicle in an empty bowl.
  2. Fill the bowl with cold water. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Gradually add ice cubes to the bowl.
  4. After 5 more minutes, remove your Icicle and pat dry.

College of Copulation: Gender and Sexuality Vocab, Plus Queer Porn and Sex Education Resources!

This queerdo’s favorite ladyboner! Basix Rubber Works 8″ Suction Cup Dong

Though I’m a very out and proud queer woman now, my journey through the boundaries and discovery of my own gender and sexuality wasn’t always easy. Even after finally growing secure with my identity, I still come across new definitions and theories, and keeping track of the somewhat evolving “alphabet soup” of sexuality can be arduous. Mmm, soup. Is it lunch yet? Okay, my stomach says we’re starting here:

LGBTQIA: Known as “The Alphabet Soup” — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual/Trans*, Queer or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual or Ally. I’ll define these to my best ability in just a minute.

Gender versus Sex: Your sex (genitals) does not determine your gender identity. Gender identity is how a person experiences their own gender. Gender expression refers to the way one outwardly presents themselves, be it masculine, feminine, or otherwise.

D.C.’s Transgender and Gender Identity Respect Campaign is the first US governmentally-funded ad campaign to address trans/genderqueer discrimination.

Transgender versus Transsexual versus Transvestite: A transgender person has a gender identity that differs from their gender assigned at birth. A transsexual person has a gender identity that differs from their sex assigned at birth. Some people may interpret transsexual to mean a person who has undergone gender reassignment surgery. A person does not need to have surgery to identify as trans. In fact, some people prefer just top, just bottom, or no surgery at all. It’s pretty offensive to ask someone what genitals they have and if they plan for surgery. The words “transvestite” and “tranny” are also pretty offensive, so you should probably refrain from using them. Ever.

Ally: Someone who does not identify as LGBTQI but is an advocate for gender and sexual equality.

Androgyny: When a person’s gender expression does not strictly abide by traditional “masculine” and “feminine” expressions, and may combine the two.

Asexual: Someone who doesn’t regularly experience sexual attraction.

Bisexual: A person who is attracted to both sexes as defined by the gender binary.

Cisgender: A person whose birth-assigned sex and gender identity match i.e. a person who is born with a vagina, is assigned the female sex at birth, and identifies/expresses themselves as such.

Feminism: Complete equality for all genders and sexes.

Thigh Strap-Ons are super popular among queer kinksters.

Gay: A person who is attracted to those of the same gender or sex as themselves, both romantically and sexually. Usually used to refer to men.

Genderqueer: A person whose gender identity and expression breaks the boundaries of societal expectations for their sex.

Intersex: A person whose sex may feature attributes of both the male and female sex organs.

Lesbian: A woman who is attracted to women, both romantically and sexually.

Pansexual: Someone who has no restrictions on what gender or sexes they are romantically and sexually attracted to.

Preferred pronoun: The terms a person prefers when being referred to as other than their name, i.e. her/she, him/her, them/they, ze, hir, etc. If you’re ever unsure of what pronoun to use for someone, simply ask. It’s better to admit your ignorance than to offend someone by mis-gendering them.

Queer: Frequently used as an umbrella term for anyone who falls outside of heteronormative genders, sexes, and sexual preferences.

Being a young, clueless queer kid was hard enough when just trying to gain a solid grasp of the vast range of gender and sex identities and sexual preferences in order to apply it to myself. Once I started exploring my body and watching porn, I’d become super frustrated when mainstream sites just didn’t do it for me. Luckily there’s an evolving presence and acceptance of queer-identified people, therefore more and more queer porn! Click “Read More” below for some queer porn, toy, and sex education resources.

A Real Piece Of Ass: Bringing Your Mega Fuck Slut To Life With Fetish Fantasy Lingerie!

Just coppin' a quick (and consensual!) feel!

Thanks to our lifelike Fanta Flesh material, our Pipedream Extreme Toyz look and feel just like the real thing! So real, in fact, that many customers have been fiending for suggestions on how to bring even more life to their girls with panties and lingerie. So I grabbed the Mega Fuck Slut from our showroom — named “Cupcake” by my officemates in light of this morning’s funfetti breakfast — and got to play dress-up with some of our Fetish Fantasy Lingerie! To spice things up, I adorned their tight little ass holes with my favorite butt plugs — our Metal Worx Mini Luv Plug for Cupcake, and the Mini Luv Plug from Fetish Fantasy Series Limited Edition for her Fuck Me Silly sister, Muffin.

Cupcake and Muffin fit into the “One Size” options of our Red Hot Teddy Set, Naughty Nurse Set, and Divine Addiction. They also fit into our S/M sized See-Thru Boxer, so I think it’s safe to say they’ll fit into most small-sized items. When choosing clothes for your PDX ladies, I’d suggest purchasing stretchy, breathable materials to ensure an easy fit.

Check out this blog post for specific bra sizing for the Fuck Me Silly 2, Mega Fuck Slut, and Fuck My Big Fat Titties.

Shock Therapy 101, Part 2

shock therapy

Holy shit you guys, I just stumbled upon a gold mine! It’s heaven! Pure bliss! I’m serious! Are you ready for this? Because I’m about to change your life with three simple words…

Hands-free orgasm.

Did you hear that? I don’t think you did. Let’s try this again.

HANDS. FREE. ORGASM.

BY. YOUR. SELF.

Just when you thought you needed online dating for free sushi and effortless orgasms, here comes electrosex with its ability to make you cum without even having to touch yourself… and no commitment required! I can finally delete my OkCupid account, THANK GODDESS!

Okay but seriously, if you think about it, it’s a super plausible case. An orgasm is simply a contraction of muscles. Our Shock Therapy products stimulate your muscles, causing involuntary contractions – so with just the right placement, you too may be able to reach total ecstasy without a vibe or rubbing one out.

E-stimulation is pretty big in the BDSM community, but it’s been blowing my mind to see how many uses this one device has. The very same item that will discipline your slave with a jolt, also made for an awesome Christmas gift for my mom! “We’ve all got ‘em,” said Sales Exec. and my office roomie Cheryl. All of my lovely colleagues here at Pipedream Headquarters boasted about how great it works for aches and pains when used on the lower settings since it mimics the stimulation of a massage. With my herniated disc and frequent roller derby batter, I finally joined the crowd and got a Shock Therapy unit for my desk too.

I have to admit though, I was pretty lost when first operating our Shock Therapy device, and it seems you all get a little confused too, what with all the Sexpert inquiries we get in regards to this item. Here I hope to clarify some things, offer safety tips, and leave you with just a few (of many!) options for pad placement.

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Those things that look like iPod ear buds? Connect a pad to each one.

2. That wire that looks like a headphone jack — plug it into the control unit.

3. Remove the plastic film from the pads and stick them on the desired area. The area should be smooth and clean — make sure the skin isn’t oily, and if you’re hairy then you might need to shave the area because the pads won’t stick through the hair. Too much hair may also interfere with the conductivity. All 4 pads must be connected and placed on the body in order for the item to work.

If you’re using the Shock Therapy Electro-Sex Gel, apply it directly to the skin prior to placing the pads. We highly suggest using this gel since dry skin has a relatively high resistance and may cause sharper, more painful shocks. The gel also magnifies the intensity and provides maximum conductivity.

4. Press the “On/^” button. A bunch of stuff will blink on the screen. When the flash show is over you will see the speed level on the left, then the timer, an image of a body, a blinking fist, and then “power” or the level of intensity. Let me explain these functions real quick:

- Speed and Power are adjusted by clicking the “On/^” button. You can switch between the two by clicking the “S/P” button. When you first turn the unit on, it will be automatically set on the Power level, so if you press “On/^” it will adjust the Power level first, and you’ll have to click “S/P” to adjust the Speed.

- The timer is set for 15 minutes and will automatically turn off when the time passes. Contrary to what the box says, you actually can’t adjust the timer. Sorry about that… :(

- The little body image is separated by areas of the body. When you cycle through the body using the “Mode” button, you can choose the area of the body that your pads are located, and it will then use a variety of e-stim patterns designed specifically for that area of the body. The “hands” that appear above the body signify which mode is being used.

The modes are as follows:

- The first mode that appears when you turn the unit on looks like a fist. This is the tap mode, which promotes blood circulation with short, quick throbs.

- The second mode, the one that looks like a flat hand, is modulation. It releases fatigue and relaxes muscles with long, even throbs.

- The third mode, kneading, looks like a hand inside of a circle. It gradually releases neural or muscular pain by providing deep, pressure-point stimulation in 20-second increments with 10 seconds of rest in between.

These modes will be used in different patterns when choosing a mode for a specific area of the body. If you just want to consistently use one of the three modes, then click the “Mode” button until you’re back to the fist, hand, or hand/circle thing.

If you turn on the unit and can’t immediately increase the Speed or Power, then just cycle through all the modes and when you get back to the first mode (the little “tap” fist) you should be able to increase them.

 

THIS PART IS REALLY IMPORTANT SO I’M GOING TO TYPE IN BOLD CAPS TO BETTER EMPHASIZE HOW IMPERATIVE THIS INFORMATION IS. EXCLAMATION POINTS HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Never, ever, ever place your Shock Therapy pads near the heart. If a current goes through the heart it could cause ventricular fibrillation, cardiac arrest, or other serious heart complications. We do offer Shock Therapy Nipple Clamps, which are much preferred, as it will confine the electrodes to the small bit of flesh between the clamps.

Do you have a pacemaker or other heart conditions? Then you probably shouldn’t use any electrosex devices. Ever. Consult with your doctor if you simply can’t resist.

Never handle the pads while the Shock Therapy unit is on… or you will die. Okay, that’s a bit harsh — but really, if you’re handling the pads with your hands with the unit on, you could very easily inadvertently pass currents through the heart area. Remember how dangerous that is? You fuckin’ better!

You probably shouldn’t place the pads over piercings, either. It may confine the current to that super small space, making it way too intense and possibly causing damage to the tissue.

It’s best to play with e-stimulation while sitting or lying down. Say you use it on a leg while you’re standing — the involuntary muscle contractions could very well cause a fall.

Our Shock Therapy Pads aren’t made for internal use. We have a Shock Therapy Pleasure Probe made specifically for internal use, as well as a Cock Cage and Cock Strap.

Click “Read More” to find images of examples for placement of your Shock Therapy pads. There really are a plethora of options — just stay away from that heart!
