I have always enjoyed using sex toys. At the moment, my favorite sex toy is the Pocket Rocket Booster. When I can't sleep at night, getting an orgasm from my Pocket Rocket Booster relaxes me enough so that I can get my requisite ten hours of shut-eye. I love to sleep. I used to be a light sleeper, but as I aged, I've developed the sleeping habits of a bear in hibernation. Nothing wakes me up now, which is a switch since a car backfiring four miles away used to wake me up in an instant.
I have other favorite sex toys, including the Rabbit Pearl and Silver Bullet. I think that sex toys provide a much-needed service to men and women. They feel good. They are great fun to share. They put some oomph in your sex life when you have no clue what to do for variety.
So why do sex toys get such a bad rap in the media?
I have just learned that the Oxygen TV channel will no longer carry "Talk Sex" with Sue Johanson. I have seen that show a few times, and it was very entertaining and informative. Johanson is 78, which strikes me as a great thing - showing an older woman who enjoys sex and enjoys talking about it. She reminded me of Dr. Ruth Westheimer. I have no idea why Oxygen nixed the show's return, but I will miss it.
As far as I know, there are no regions in the U. K. where sex toys are banned, unlike several southern states in the U. S. The sale of sex toys is prohibited in the state of Alabama, for instance. This law mainly applies to brick and mortar stores. I suppose that doesn't stop Alabamans from buying their sex toys online.
News reports from the U. S. described a rape case where the prosecution wanted to include the alleged rapists collection of sex toys as "evidence" that he is depraved. The judge wisely said no to that. Using sex toys does not make you a rapist or a pervert. Not only that, the accused did not use sex toys in allegedly perpetrating the crimes. Perfectly normal people enjoy using sex toys. Legal tactics such as that unfairly malign sex toys.
In another case, this one a rape and murder, a man was accused of raping and murdering his step-daughter. The prosecution tried to place the blame on the dead woman's mother, citing her collection of sex toys as "proof" that she was the one who was sex addict, not the accused. Using sex toys doesn't make you a sex addict. Where on earth do these attitudes come from?
Despite stories such as those, there were good articles about sex toys. In particular, the greening of sex toys has become popular as of late, such as making sure that modern sex toys do not contain phthalates. Bondara's sex toys are phthalate-free. Other articles described how to properly use your sex toys. I'd like to see more of those kinds of articles. The reading public deserves to see positive depictions of sex toys in the news.
All in all, sex toys help people to enjoy their sexuality more. A G-spot vibrator can help a woman find her ever elusive G-spot if she is like me and can't find the little bugger with her fingertips. I love to use erotic massage oils and flavoured body paint. Those items make sex and sensation play much more enjoyable and downright silly sometimes. As long as people like sex, they will buy sex toys. So let's see more positive depictions of sex toys in the news.
