May is officially Masturbation Month! Yes, there is an entire month dedicated to self-love mastery. We could not be more for it! Do you want to up your masturbation game from quick and dirty to extra sweet and spicy? Try these three new ways to masturbate in celebration of Masturbation Month!
1. Freaky, Party of One
Kinky sex isn’t limited to groups of two or more. Get freaky in a party of one by blindfolding yourself while you explore your body more in-depth. Use a sensate focus-based vibrator like the Suga Stick to romance yourself sight unseen, going over any spot that feels extra yummy to you, like nipples, thighs, vulva lips, and of course, your clitoris!
2. Self-Love Club
Masturbation doesn’t always have to be a race to the finish line. You deserve some romance and self-care. Treat yourself to a date night for one! Order in a nice dinner, watch that romcom you’ve been wanting to see, and finish off with a warm shower with your favorite splash proof toy! The warm water and romancing will relax your body and mind, opening yourself up to a bigger, more intense orgasm. We suggest a pinpoint toy with loads of yummy pleasure rubs, like our Swirl Vibe.
3. Couples Session
We know it might sound weird if you’ve never done it, but trust us on this. Get together with your boo and watch each other for the night. Whether you come together and watch a porn you both are into, or get romantic and look into each other’s eyes as you masturbate together, this will bond you in a new and exciting way! And it just makes round two that much more exciting! For a couples sesh, we suggest a classic bullet vibe where your partner can see all the action, like our Candy Stick! Pair it with something he'll love to stroke himself with, like our Taffy Puller.
What comes before a wedding Saturday within the month of June? Wild, fun, bachelorette season! Not all bachelorettes want the same penis shaped cakes and embarrassing sashes. Plan the perfect party for the bachelorette in your life this spring with this easy guide. First, you must evaluate your bachelorette: is she the shy bride, the wild bride, the artsy bride, or the IG-obsessed bride?
The Shy Bride
Wild, crazy nights filled with penis-shaped shot glasses aren’t for everyone. For those who are on the shy side, we recommend leaving the embarrassment at home and taking your bride somewhere with a nice spa. Have you and your bride squad have a nice, relaxing weekend in, topped with a cute Instagram pic of all of you in matching pajamas. Now, even the shy bride has to get at least a few naughty gifts for her first night as a wifey. Get her something from the Rock Candy Fun Size Collection! We suggest the Fun Size Lala Pop or for more focused vibrations, the Suga Stick. These are discreet, non-threatening, and travel friendly. Perfect for a more mellow bachelorette!
The Wild Bride
You know her, you love her, she’s a handful. It’s the wild bride! This bachelorette has seen all of the movies and wants you to throw her the funny, trashy bash of the century! Penis cakes, shot glasses, and giant rings are a-okay for this party girl. You’ll want to take your wild bachelorette somewhere where the city never sleeps, like New Orleans! Take her to the Carousel Bar, a bar that literally spins as you drink. There are also tons of fun, wild drag shows to take her to in New Orleans. This is a bachelorette party she’ll be telling her grandchildren about…well at least the highlights. The wild bachelorette would be offended if her naughty gifts didn’t meet her fun energy, so get her the Bling Pop Vibrating C-Ring to share with her hubby to be.
The Artsy Bride
The artsy bride is a great combination of a wild and shy bride, but with her own flair, of course. She wants a unique bachelorette party that none of her girls will have been there, or done that. Take your artsy bride somewhere where there’s a lot of galleries or unique attractions, like Palm Springs. Take her to the Palm Springs Museum of Art or on a architecture tour through the colorful 60’s homes. She’s got a little party in her? Take her to a unique pool party, there’s something for every music taste out there. Even the hipster, artsy bachelorette needs her naughty send off, so get her something just as creative as her. Give her a Taffy Puller as a couples toy! She will love the fun color, and will love stroking her man in a new way. You can also use the Taffy Puller as a BJ enhancer when your man is well-endowed.
The IG-Obsessed Bride
We have all been bachelorette bombed by this girl before. You gotta love a girl who can make a photoshoot from anything! Your IG bachelorette is going to want ALL the photo spots, so take her somewhere that can provide amazing backdrops wherever you go. We suggest Nashville! One particularly IG-worthy spot you can take this selfie-snapping bachelorette is the Pink Limousine Bar. If your bachelorette wants to party like Dolly Parton in an all pink, glam bar, she’ll love you forever for planning her party here. The IG bachelorette will most definitely want a viral-worthy naughty gift, so get her the Gummy Bear Vibe. This vibe is powerful, cute, and will totally get her the likes she’s looking for.

March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate those amazingly badass women who knew the worth of self-esteem!
As the world discusses female empowerment, here are three women in history who loved themselves unapologetically, not only for their beauty, but for their merits. So much so, that the world came to love them relentlessly. These women made noteworthy contributions to society yet taught us that there is nothing, yes, nothing wrong with self-love and self-care. Be it work or pleasure.
Hedy Lamarr: The Bombshell Inventor
A lady who marvellously portrayed an orgasm sequence in the movie Ecstasy and was a part of nude scenes just at the age of 18 (we are talking in the year 1933!), Hedy Lamarr went to be an icon who would change the face of Hollywood. The Snow White and Cat Woman that we know and love today, all owe their looks to Hedy. She knew what she wanted and how she wanted it.
Believe it or not, this bombshell’s glaring flare for technology helped her invent the “hopping frequency” method, which can rightly be called the great grand-daddy of today’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Jenna Haze: The Natural Hottie
Yes, she ruled the porn industry for years with super sensuous attributes that came naturally to her. With 602 adult films and prestigious awards like 2003 AVN Best New Starlet, 2009 AVN Performer of the Year, Best Group Sex Scene, Best Oral Sex Scene, and many more accolades, she is undoubtedly one of the most talented porn stars of our time. She is the only adult performer to ever win Best New Starlet and Performer of the Year. She even started her own production company.
Before officially retiring as a porn performer in 2012, Jenna made it clear that the porn business is a serious business, where talent rules. She has gone on to great heights as an advocate for ethical pornography, even giving a TED Talk on Porn: A Shift in Mindset.
Maya Angelou: The Epitome of Learning and Teaching Self Love
“I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.”
The words by this much-acclaimed activist, storyteller, poet, and auto-biographer reinstate that love begins by loving oneself. In every sphere of her life, she has portrayed an eternal desire to rise above all struggles. She has done this through her poetry and voice against discrimination. One of her notable works is Phenomenal Women, which celebrates the journey of womanhood.
So, friends, these women, no matter the domain they have ruled, these women and countless other iconic women have proved that self-love and acceptance can take you far. Loving yourself and getting what you want is not shameful or prideful, it is an act of service we must all actively participate in. The celebration is in the journey of self-love and self-discovery, there is no destination. So, take a little time to celebrate yourself before this month comes to a close.
What is ASMR? Basically, sounds and stimuli that will make your brain tingle! AKA a HEADGASM!
What is Poppin' Rock Candy? Candy crystals that will make your mouth (and nether-regions!) tingle during foreplay!

Feel like you're running out of things to keep you busy, creative and/or mellow during quarantine?
Enter our talented and sweet friend, Shanna Johnson! One of the things we love about Shanna, aside from her artwork, is her desire to stay creative right now.
Shanna offered to make some custom coloring pages for you to print and color, as a go-to item to include in your self-care toolbox.
Is it wrong to be turned on by the thought of making an authentic Disneyland Dole Whip at home??? Asking for a friend.
Kidding! But if you've ever visited the Magical Kingdom, you likely understand the nostalgia of hauling tail to the magical Dole Whip shack (before waiting in line for the Tiki-Tiki-Tiki-Tiki Tiki Room)!
How are you hanging in and navigating the coronavirus quarantine, babe?
Working from home is just one new challenge you may be working through right now. Totally understandable. Basically overnight, a LOT of people went from workin' 9-5 to an all-out free for all, like going buck wild during summer vacation back in the day! Late nights! Sleepovers! Sleeping in! What day is it?!
But now, we are adults.... so there's booze, snacks, Netflix, and weed (in legal states, of course!). Which is pretty damn awesome ....but also, your own private Temptation Island. Yikes!
If you're trying to get into a work from home groove but can't seem to get it right, it's all good. It's a work-in-progress!
Hopefully this topic isn't too rando to read on a sex toy website! But what gives US pleasure is helping you live your best life - so much that we created the Quarantine Self-Care Series, which you can read here! It's all for you. <3
An *ideal* scenario (aka my 'perfect day') looks like this - but feel free to take what really clicks with your lifestyle, and omit the rest.
Buckle up and settle down- this is a lot to sift through!
Do we still trip out every time we start a blog about things to do in quarantine?
Times are still strange, unlike anything we've ever seen....and now that the social distancing rule has been extended until April 30, we can use all of the time-passing activities we can get, right?
