    I might be the only one, but I've never liked the term 'sex toys' - I've always felt it's a bit distasteful in view of toys being associated with children. I'd have preferred it if the industry had stuck with the original term 'sex aids', although I do of course realise the negative connotations of 'aids'.

    I'm sure nothing will change the usage of 'sex toys' in the forseeable future, but can anyone think of a better phrase? I don't suppose 'orgasm inducers' would catch on...

    Recent thread about this:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/community/forums/orgasm-army/sex-talk/218671-uprising-against-the-word-toy/

    I think sex aids is a rubbish term! Sounds old fashioned. I liked the terms plaything but also like toy.

    Unless the first mouse was intelligent enough to get said cheese without setting of the trap...

    or if it was a humane trap, the 1st mouse gets the chees, and its last meal

    You will have bad dreams, perhaps featuring very clever mice and worms chasing birds. :)

    I guess that depends if anyone else was in the dream.... and what they were doing with the carrot!

    The carrot chat and cheese talk may have had something to do with the time, at the time, if you see what I mean.

    It could irk me but then my 'toy' makes me come so hard that I see stars, and suddenly semantics doesn't bother me

    I do like the term 'pleasure object'. I think the cats at Lelo prefer that and it makes sense. There's a big difference between your knock off novelty and a gold plated, diamond encrusted wonder-wang.
