Sex Toys, Art, and Sex-Positivity

I believe sex toys are something that should be celebrated, not shamed.  These colorful creations aren't only powerful tools for exploring our sexuality, they can also be artisticcreated by dildo-sculpting virtuosos to please the mind, body, and soul.  I created sex toy collective to help spread that spirit and help douse sex-negativity.  Unfortunately, there are still stigmas surrounding sex toys: in Texas, vibrators were only legalized in 2008, and in Alabama sex toys still remain illegal to this day, it's ridiculous!

Some of these stigmas were created by Reuben Sturman's porn shop empire of the 60s, which sold particularly obscene sex toys.  And since there's no regulations on sex toys, shady companies can get away with using toxic materials that cause rashes, increase the risk of infection, and have other negative long-term effects.  Further deepening negative attitudes towards sex toys.

The good news is there's a bright side to the sex toy industry.  Sex-postive companies like Smitten Kitten, Vixen Creations, Njoy, Fun Factory, Nobessence, Good Vibrations, Babeland and Tantus put safety before profit.  They only sell sex toys made from medical-grade body-safe materials like silicone, stainless steel, and borosilicate glass.  These toys not only feel amazing, they also look amazing, and are as much works of art as they are pleasure objects.

This site is a place where I like to express my enthusiasm for sex toys.  I usually do this by making fun interactive tools, blog posts, and guides.  I also make my own silicone dildos in my free time and have a few video guides on how to get started crafting your own at home.

Interactive Tools

These tools let you discover the world of sex toys in a different way that isn't possible through just plain blogging or writing.  I try to release a new tool every few months (they can be very time consuming to make).

Sex Toy Discovery ToolThis tool let's you scroll through sex toys.  I hand-pick every toy, so only the most interesting and cool sex toys are shown.  You can also sort by type, like dildos, vibrators, etc.  Whenever I find a new toy i'm quick to add it to this tool, so it's always fresh.

Boutique Sex Shops Map - After reading Vibrator Nation, I was inspired to make a map that shows all the sex positive and woman-owned shops of the world.  This clickable map let's you discover cool shops in Chile, South Africa, Germany, the USA, and all over.  I had tons of fun making it, and I hope it's useful, especially for incorporating some sexy stops on a vacation.

Sex Toy Voting and Match-Making Guides

As a collective, it's important to vote!  These posts have voting tools that let everyone like/vote for their favorite sex toys in a certain category.  The results are then sorted so we can see the winners.
