“It keeps almost feeling good, and then I remember it’s a bear,” I texted my boyfriend 40 minutes into a fruitless testing session with the Teddy Love. If I closed my eyes and imagined it was my darlin’ going down on me instead, an orgasm started to feel within reach—but then I felt polyester fur graze my thighs or poked myself in the urethra with that stabby

Why Nipple Clamps Are the Most Underrated Sex Toys in the World


Sandra LaMorgese, Ph.D., an author, dominatrix, and CEO of Attainment Studios, tells Glamour that while the exact origin of the nipple clamp is unclear, they look pretty damn similar to sewing clamps used in ancient Japan. “The clamps were mounted to the tabletop, and they held the fabric in place so that the seamstresses could focus on the delicate work of sewing

The Best Sex Toys When Antidepressants Make it Hard to Orgasm


But nothing, and I mean nothing, has compared to what an indirect clitoral stimulator, or "touch-free," toy does. I use one called the Satisfyer, a slightly cheaper version of the expert-approvedWomanizer toy, both of which are pore cleanser lookalikes that supposedly mimic oral sex, stimulating the clit with little puffs of air. While it’s not the warm, wet sensation

If You Notice Any of These Signs, It Might Be Time to Invest in New Sex Toys


To save your sex toys from any of these fates, make sure to store them in a cool place where they're not touching, says Stephanie Keating, brand manager at We-Vibe.

3 Days at a Nude Resort Taught Me How to Defend My Boundaries


My worries weren't totally unfounded. Despite their hippie-dippie reputation, nude resorts are not free from the same kinds of harassment that women face on the street, in the workplace, and, well, pretty much everywhere. But I came to find out that—perhaps because people at the resort, which was called Hedonism II, are so openly sexual, or because so many things could

How One Woman Confronted the Issue of Racial Bias on Online Dating Sites


I grew up in Palo Alto, the predominately white, affluent city in Northern California that’s home to Stanford University. It was idyllic in some ways—I can’t thank my parents enough for busting their asses through far more intolerant times than my own to make it our home—but being an “other” in a nearly homogeneous community had a profoundly destabilizing

The Eggplant Emoji Vibrator Is More Than Just a Novelty


Now, call me a skeptic, but I tend to be wary of sex toys based on pop culture. A lot of them trade function for “fun,” making them impractical, poorly made, and unable to complete the job. Aesthetic can be great—look at the Form II or the Minna Limón—but at the end of the day a vibrator should make you orgasm, regardless of how cute and winky it
