On Sunday I took at look at the new Ballbra that has been talked about with some confusion and interest on the Orgasm Army forums. I stand by what I said - I'm darned interested in it and would kind of love to see a man wearing one.
I am not so sure that I want to see Jeremy Paxman wearing one. In fact, I am sure that I don't. And yet, with his recent argument over whether or not M&S underwear for men has gotten… less supportive… he may be in the market for the ballbra. As he says:
"Like large numbers of men in this country I have always bought my socks and pants at Marks & Sparks.
"I've noticed something very troubling has happened. There's no other way to put this -- their pants no longer provide adequate support.
"When I've discussed this with friends and acquaintances it has revealed widespread gusset anxiety."
So who wants to be the one to email him with the Ballbra link? I would, but I'm too busy picturing it…
I don't mean to frighten anyone with this newsflash, but it is less than a month until Valentine's Day. Seriously. Now is the time to be making your plans for what gift is going to wow and impress your lover - and possibly get you a little sweet action. Over the next few weeks, I'll present you with some out of the ordinary (no fluffy handcuffs or red tatty lingerie this year, gentlemen!), sure-to-impress gifts. Something that will satisfy both the romantic in you and the more erotically minded…
No one can see the B3 Tuyo and help but be intrigued. Stylish and unique, this is the sort of gift that you can easily give to someone who is normally turned off by in your face sexual toys - and it is made to be used by couples as well, so you're set up for an enjoyable evening.
Don't let the fancy red "censored" flag confuse you - that is no ordinary little strap and pouch for your man. No, indeed, that is a fabulous… well… Ballbra. According to the information, it is supposed to be worn during sex. With the testicles "harnessed", erections should be enhanced and orgasms more… intense. As an added bonus, the Ballbra can be worn under clothes, for the gentleman who likes to really catch the attention of the ladies on the metro.
There is some dubiousness expressed over on Orgasm Army's forums, with the general point being:
Lol… I don't know anyone that would wear one…
You know, it is a bit strange, but I'm coming around to it. It would have to give a nice sensation to the man wearing it and I would think that the look would be kind of sexy for the viewer… The Ballbra Original has a full brief back, for wearing under clothes, while there are also the Ballbra Bare with a jockstrap back and the Ballbra G-String with… well, a G-string back.
As I said back on Tuesday, the Fun Factory line has just exploded recently with unbelievably great looking toys. Fun Factory has always come up with well-made, innovative toys, but recently they seem to have really outdone themselves. It seems like every time I come onto Lovehoney and check out the new vibrators and dildos, I'm seeing something that I have to have coming out of Germany. I've before focused on the Bandito, Bendy, and the P-Twist so I am determined to put a lid on my big love for Fun Factory and focus on other lines - but only after I show you a couple more that are now firmly on my Must Own list.
So here is the whistle stop tour of what is new from Fun Factory:
I would guess that for the ladies, there isn't much out there that gives more of us a shudder the first time we hear about it than the clit clamp. Which is reasonable, really, considering how sensitive a clit is and how terrifying a word 'clamp' can be. But while it is understandable, that trepidation is largely unwarranted. The clit clamp is a friendly little guy. He just wants to be your buddy.
I like variety as much as the next girl, so usually the fact that I had just last week pointed out a great new Fun Factory toy would be enough to guarantee that I wouldn't focus on anything from that line this week, but when I saw the Silicone Bendy Beads, I couldn't resist. Because, seriously… how gorgeous is this?
Oh, Sex Toys. So tempting, but how do you know what to buy? What works? What doesn't? What is even OUT THERE to try? You have questions, I have answers (most of the time…)
I have a little problem with latex condoms and need to opt for non-latex in the future. What are my options? Are there any fun non-latex or sensitive skin condoms available?
Bondage tape - judging from the reviews over on Orgasm Army - is a very popular product that plenty of people pick up when they want to take baby steps into bondage. So why would I feature it as a Deconstruction blog post? Surely I could better use my time explaining those tricksy clit clamps or cock cages or nipple suckers?
If you're like me and tend to focus all your "What's New" attention on the more glitzy New Vibrators Section, you might have missed this little guy's entry. Fun Factory is one of the companies producing incredibly high quality sex toys (you have got to love those Germans - I know I do), so you know even before you look at anything else that the Twist is going to be well-made and long-lasting.
It's made out of body-safe silicone, which means you'll get satisfying firmness, but flexible softness that you'll appreciate when using it anally. It does have a suction base and is harness compatible, but the ridges and curves means it will be a lot of fun for more vanilla play.
It also comes with a sachet of free water-based lube to get you started, so the only question I have is whether or not I'm going to be able to wait until the purple comes back in stock, or if I'm going to go ahead and grab a jolly orange version.
