From the limestone dildo of the ancient Egyptians to the steam-powered vibrators of the Victorian era, to the cheap plastics and rubbers of the 1990s; the evolution of the sex toy paints a picture of our technological development.
But technology of any era shares a single constant; you get what you pay for. And what you’ve been paying for up until now may shock and even sicken you, if it hasn’t already.
Luckily, improved materials and innovation have given consumers a wide variety of higher-end discreet sex toys that have multiple advantages over their lesser-priced cousins.
So here’s what you get with better quality sex toys:
A cheap vibrator is likely to have a cheap motor. It might last a few sessions, but it’s unlikely to last far beyond that. And while it works, it’s likely to be weak, a less moving experience. Or it may be loud and clumsy, telling your family members or even your neighbours more than they want or need to know.
But today’s better quality toys are quieter and more powerful, with greater ranges of settings for different speeds and sensations. From jackhammer strong to a feather touch, today’s higher priced sex toys really deliver. If the neighbours are hearing you, at least they’ll only be hearing you.
Forget the plastic vagina or the rubber dong. High quality sex toys are simple and sophisticated. Glass dildos are often hand blown and look more like works of art than sex toys. And today’s modern toys have shrunk down considerably. Smaller toys and discreet designs make today’s higher quality sex toys more mainstream and acceptable.
Batteries were the heartbeat and the lifeblood of the vibrator for years, but those days are over. Say goodbye to batteries for your vibrator! Not only are toys more eco-friendly, they are also more innovative, including being remote controlled. Remote controlled adult toys are great for couples play as well as individual amusement.
If water play is your thing, today’s high quality sex toys will give you plenty to splash about. Old technologies prevented the vibrator from being submerged in water, but now you can really batten down the hatches because water-safe toys are more versatile. Now you can have even more fun in the shower or bathtub!
Many people don’t know is that the adult toy industry is unregulated, which means that toxic plastics and rubbers have long been used in the lower-end sex toys. Phthalates and other toxic chemicals found in these materials are hazardous simply to touch, and innocent consumers have been inserting these are objects into their bodies for years.
Today’s high quality sex toys are made with body-safe, phthalate-free materials that are both long-lasting and hypoallergenic. With proper care and cleaning, they can remain sanitary and provide years of worry-free use. And how much will all this quality cost? It varies, of course.
For a high quality sex toy, you can expect to pay about $100 or more. That may sound like a lot. But it’s a lot less than you’ll pay for a flat-screen TV, a new iPhone, or a nice evening out. And you’re likely to get more hours of pleasure from your new high quality sex toy than any TV or meal can provide.
So don’t be afraid to give high quality sex toys a second look. When it comes to sex toys, isn’t quality and piece of mind worth the extra investment?
