Sex toy storage: chargers and lube edition

Rechargeable sex toys can free people from the burden of clunky batteries, but there’s one side effect that kinda sucks: wrangling all the charging cords. I have never had a good system for this. My sex toys themselves are nicely tucked away in their plastic storage chests and dedicated boxes, but I let my charging cords run amok. I have a big-ass power strip on a table next to my desk, and that’s where I would plug in anything I needed to charge… and leave it there. Well, that wasn’t working out well. Imagine a big black mass of spaghetti and you’ll be pretty close to what it looked like. And it was extremely inefficient! Every time I unplugged something, I’d have to . . . read more

Once upon a time...

Once upon a time…

…my sex toy collection fit in one toybox (and my photography skillz sucked): This photo was taken on September 6th, 2008. Most of the toys in this box are toys I never use anymore — or that I’ve given away. The exceptions are the Turbo Glider (still awesome, though used rarely) and the Gold Ribbed Love Wand (my first glass dildo — sorta like this — and remains one of my favorites). This was before my toys spilled into five different cases, and way before I switched to plastic drawers for storage. I still had yet to try a silicone dildo, or a butt plug that I could really walk around with. And I hadn’t discovered my G-spot, either. Yep, definitely don’t miss those . . . read more

Peek inside my sex toy storage

Peek inside my sex toy storage

I already told you about my awesome plastic storage drawers, but y’all are creepers, so I figured you’d want to snoop inside the actual drawers. When I attempted to organize my toys into these drawers, I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I didn’t want to organize things by type, since I have about 5,000 dildos, so I figured I’d organize them by My Feelings. The problem? With a lot of toys, My Feelings are amorphous and indifferent. I know which toys I absolutely adore, and I know which ones I loathe, but that leaves a large chunk of my collection in the middle. As such, there are several drawers of these “middle ground” toys. First up: the rolling . . . read more

Best sex toy storage: plastic drawers

Best sex toy storage: plastic drawers

I think I’ve finally found a method for storing sex toys that works. In March of last year, I wrote about organizing all my sex toys into a bunch of For Your Nymphomation cases. But I was not happy with the haphazard nature of storing my toys in those cases, and quickly went looking for something else. In August, I bought a plastic cart on Amazon. Then, more recently, I bought five stackable plastic drawers. The bulk of my sex toy collection now resides in these plastic drawers, and I much prefer this method to cases/bags that are specifically made for holding sex toys. The Isis 6-drawer cart is awesome. It came already assembled; it has wheels; and it has an organizer . . . read more

Dildo desk takeover

Dildo desk takeover

A couple days ago, I decided it was time. Time to clean ALL THE THINGS — err, actually organize my sex toys. They’ve been hanging out in plastic drawers, with no real order to them, for what seems like decades. So I pulled them out of their drawers, piled them on my desk, and started contemplating how to sort them. I cleaned some dusty toys, put others into sandwich bags, labeled charging cords with masking tape, and listened to a mix called “Songs for Sorting Dildos” (it had a lot of Heart on it). One disturbing thing I realized while staring at the bulk of my sex toy collection on my desk was that I hardly use most of these toys. . . . read more

Review: Illuminating Boudoir Toybox

Review: Illuminating Boudoir Toybox

[This case is no longer available, but you can browse other sex toy storage options. Also check out my sex toy storage tag for more info on how I store my toys.] Do you need sex toy storage that could probably withstand a hurricane and also lights up inside? I’ve got a solution for you. It’s called the Tunti Illuminating Boudoir Toybox, made by Tunti Enterprises. Tunti Enterprises is a small indie business run by a wonderful woman named Ilse Thompson, who has a really cute voice (I heard it on a podcast once). Personally, I only buy sex toys and storage from people from cute voices. I don’t know about you. The Boudoir Toybox is 12.5″ x 10.5″ and made of textured black PVC with silver . . . read more

A hint of organization

A hint of organization

My sex toy collection has been slowly creeping out of the two For Your Nymphomation cases it was in. Many silicone toys were being kept in their plastic dildo-shaped packaging. It became more and more apparent to me that I needed more storage space, so I finally bit the bullet and ordered some more cases. Yes, cases. Three of them. (Queue maniacal laughter…) This forced me to actually consider organizing my toys in a coherent manner. A way that could help me find toys faster, even. But, having never done this before, I didn’t really know how to go about it. I decided the glass toys would do best laid side by side in an Adult Toybox, and went from . . . read more

Review: FYN Big Foot case

Review: FYN Big Foot case

[This case is no longer available, but you can browse other sex toy storage options. Also check out my sex toy storage tag for more info on how I store my toys.] It pays to be on the computer 24/7, and to have Twitter updates popping up in the corner of my screen as they happen. That is how I acquired my wonderful Big Foot case from For Your Nymphomation — their owner, Vera, tweeted that she wanted some sex bloggers to review the brand new Big Foot. I leapt on the opportunity, then proceeded to use the case for months without reviewing it. Today I received some lace gloves in the mail, so I decided to gussy myself up with them and . . . read more

Obama will be president, and seven other awesome things

Obama will be president, and seven other awesome things

[Image by Buchino] Barack Obama will be our next president. I’m not a hugely political person, but I was worried all day and now I’m excited as fuck. I feel so lucky to be alive for this election and this presidency. I squealed inside when Obama said “gay” during his victory speech. Although other states have these ridiculous homophobic ballot measures passing, at least our next president isn’t homophobic. And now onto things that will sound superficial in comparison, but hey… I am now reviewing sex toys and porn for XCritic. My first review, of AbbyWinters’s “Girls Who Lust,” is already up. I’ve found that porn takes a lot more time to review. Blogger Ansley Agnello is sending me a . . . read more
