Well, technically, they’re not mine. But I’ll tell you about them anyway.
A couple of months ago, I had to attend a friend’s bridal shower. I did not want to buy the usual gift: lingerie. So I visited a naughty store close to my house. I don’t think these stores are actually called naughty stores, but for my sake, that is what I prefer to call them. Before I went in, I expected to find the usual: vibrators, handcuffs, whips, massage oils, adult movies, etc. But when I got in there, the things I saw totally blew my mind.
I asked the shop keeper so many questions that I think he was sick of me. If he could, he would have probably sent me out of the shop. I took pictures of some very interesting toys like the various colors of men’s members: blue, green, purple, yellow, pink, turquoise, orange, and much more (and they were mostly in neon). It was unusual. Why someone would want a man’s member in a color like that, and especially in neon was beyond me. And then, there was an 18-inch double header [a man’s member with two heads]. I still don’t understand that one. Are you supposed to share it with a friend? Or are you supposed to have the option of switching penetrating sides? *INSERT IGBO GIRL SHRUG*
There’s a general myth among my [African] men that sex toys are only for women. Apart from the fact that there are actually a lot of toys for men, I also cannot help but wonder: if the toy is made for the woman and the man uses it with her/on her, and of course, enjoys it in the process, is the toy, then, not for them both? But speaking of men’s toys, I saw something that was called a total erection system. I did not have the courage to ask the storekeeper what it was or how it was used. It had something that looked like a pressure cuff in it, too. Some things are better left unknown.
I really wanted to put pictures of the toys here, but I’ve never put such raunchy pictures on my blog. Silly pictures, yes. Too-much-information pictures, yes. Raunchy pictures of sex toys that look like the actual members? Not really. I do, however, have two pictures that are not as raunchy. Enjoy.
This is the ball gag. I asked the shop keeper what it’s used for, and he said you put it in the girl’s mouth [just like the picture] while they’re having sex, and what it does is create a muffled sound. My next question was, “But why???” And the shop keeper just gave me a what’s-wrong-with-this-girl look and said, “Because people like it!” Okay, then. I still don’t get it.
This one, all I could think of when I first saw it was maybe they’re mints for your mouth after oral sex? No, I was wrong. These go deep mints are for just that: going deep. Apparently, these mints numb the woman’s throat, so that when she’s performing oral sex on her man, she would be able to take more of his member in. This is an example of a toy that the man would derive pleasure from.
But why are you reading a post about oral sex? Because on Saturday, February 19th 2011, the Verastically Speakin’ Talk Show makes its debut — again. Topic: What Your Mother Didn’t Tell You About Sex Toys. I’ll be co-hosting with Miss Jayla and Amara Nwankpa, both of whom are very opinionated and experienced? The show will air at its usual time of 10 AM U.S. Eastern Time [3 PM GMT or 4 PM Nigerian Time]. Call 1.646.929.1905 to give us a piece of your mind about sex toys. There would be a live interactive chat room; all you need is a free account from www.blogtalkradio.com. If you don’t have one, now is the time to get one. If you already have one, make sure you still remember your user name and password. In case you are confused, this is an internet-based talk show. Just click the shop topic on Saturday to listen and chat.
P.S. There is a new poll by your right hand side. Please vote.
