ARCWAVE Ion is here: What is it?

ion arcwave

It seems like just this week we were discussing the impending release of WOW Tech’s (We-Vibe, Womanizer, Pjur) newest brand line, ARCWAVE. What’s that? It was this week? Time flies when you’re waiting on new sex toys! As I was browsing the interwebs hoping to find different information about the impending release of anything ARCWAVE, I decided to check out their website once again. A new layout, an inverted colour scheme, and something called the Ion were staring me down. New stuff! Let’s discuss!

 

Wait, what happened?

So, we’ve got the first release. The Ion, seemingly the first of a few new toys, is not your average masturbator. Before we discuss what it is, let’s talk about what it isn’t. In my previous article, ARCWAVE – Why You Should Be Excited, we had a few hopes and dreams for this line. What the Ion reveals is that I was off with a few things, but on with a few. The Ion doesn’t seem to support any sort of phone connectivity, which was something I assumed would be standard on this new line. I’ll be totally honest, this caught me off guard; why would you take a step backwards? The entire current We-Vibe line, barring 2 toys, are compatible with the WeConnect app. While Womanizer toys aren’t compatible with any sort of app, this often comes off as a weakness; more and more couples are desiring that internet-interconnectivity, and for ARCWAVE to skip out on it seems like a mistake. However, there might be more to this toy, as although accessories are available for purchase, the toy is not. Are there more updates coming? Assuming there are more toys on their way, it only seems right! Considering we saw app connectivity in the trailer (we broke-down the trailer in that article I linked earlier), it might just be a feature we haven’t seen yet. 

 

So what IS the Ion?

Think the ever famous Womanizer Premium for PH’s! (Just read the damn article). The joys of sharing a parent company with Womanizer means you can use their amazing technology for anything! Touting PleasureAir Technology right on the frenulum (or banjo string, if you prefer), the Ion focuses it’s faux-vibrations on “The Right Nerve Every Time” and says the impending orgasm will be “The Closest Thing to a Female Orgasm for Men”. While I would be hard pressed to explain the toy better than ARCWAVE can (check out their website here), it seems I was off base in assuming these toys would be the We-Vibe equivalent for men. These toys are going to be more like the Womanizer line, and for that, I am VERY excited.

 

The toy draws a few similarities to some other toys in the “Guybrator” market. First off, just as I mentioned in my original article, the JETT by Hot Octopuss has definitely been looked at, but for this toy, it’s for different reasons. The JETT focuses on the frenulum, just as the Ion does. I originally assumed the sonic capabilities of the JETT were being explored, and while that hasn’t been ruled out, this toy plays with the frenulum. Keep your eyes peeled for those sonic sensations, though! The other thing the Ion reminds me of is the Cobra Libre from Fun Factory. Advertised as a penis head toy, this “Guybrator” is not meant to be thrust into while being used, similar to the Ion. Using vibrations as opposed to the PleasureAir tech, it’s not a spitting image, but they’re pretty similar in a few ways. They’re both waterproof, they’re both static use toys, and they’re both pretty freakin awesome. 

 

What impresses me most?

I’ll go on record in saying that a major selling point for the We-Vibe Chorus is the discreet charging/travel case. The stunning charging case the Ion touts is going to be a major factor in destigmatising the sex toys for male use. It’s sleek, sexy, subtle, and could be mistaken for a luxury car part. They clearly talked with their target audience here, and props to WOW Tech for listening. The concept of the case isn’t the only impressive part about it, either. It features a “DryTech” stick to wick away any moisture that would remain after cleaning. Utilising silica gel (those little DO NOT EAT beads you get in bags & boxes) to keep things dry, and a ventilated lid to keep things fresh, means your toy, cleaning pertaining, is going to stay fresher for longer. There’s also seemingly some pretty impressive silicone based technology going on, but I’ll leave you to discover that on the beautiful ARCWAVE website yourself.

 

Final Thoughts

I know it’s just the first toy of the line, but I’m super excited. The innovation we’ve already seen with the Ion will hopefully just be expanded upon with upcoming toys. I’ll be sure to continue with the updates as each new toy comes out, so expect further updates right here on AdultSmart.com.au! Hopefully we’ll have these toys in store soon, so also swing by Oh!Zone Adult Stores in Caringbah & Penrith to see if they’ve made their landing in Australia. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for more ARCWAVE updates, and stay keen for the men’s toy revolution!

 

ARCWAVE – Why You Should Be Excited

arc wave

We-Vibe is an ever popular name in the sex toy industry. A leader in teledildonics, which unfortunately isn’t telepathically controlled sex machines, but rather wireless connections to partners wherever you may be, We-Vibe has lead the charge with some industry breaking toys. From the original “We-Vibe” (yep, the toy was just the companies name) to their best selling & award winning We-Vibe Chorus, We-Vibe and WOW Tech, the parent company of We-Vibe, have been doing some pretty phenomenal things when it comes to the wonderful world of sex toys. However, on the WOW Tech website, an interesting new character has appeared. Should you find yourself on the company website, give the “Brands” page a look, and discover a brand new sleek logo & website under the name “ARCWAVE” down the very bottom of the list. The website, although only containing a teaser trailer for a line of four toys, is incredibly intriguing; what could these toys be? How much will these toys utilise their already phenomenal technology? Let’s discuss a few places these toys may be going, and get our foot in the door with what might be the highest quality male toys to hit the market in a long time.

 

In the 1:17 long teaser trailer ARCWAVE has released, very little information was actually given about what the toys could be. WOW Tech are known for their groundbreaking & trendsetting technology: AirPleasure from Womanizer, setting the market for wearables with We-Vibe, incredible phone connectivity, are just some of their industry leading innovations. The first few lines of the trailer are:

 

“Here’s to the men. It’s time for a cultural change. ARCWAVE leads the way, and redefines a whole category.”

 

From just the first 15 seconds, we’ve got a fair bit of information. These toys are for the people with penises. Not everybody that has a penis is a man, so I’ll generalise this audience as penis-havers, or PH’s. This will be the first line from WOW Tech accommodating just men; We-Vibe is mostly gender neutral – with cockrings, g-spot vibrators, bullets, plugs, prostate massagers, clit toys, the works. Womanizer is vaginally centred, with their toys only accommodating for VH’s (surely I don’t need to explain this one). ARCWAVE will most likely be the Womanizer equivalent for PH’s, which in of itself is an incredibly promising idea. Womanizer has garnered some pretty incredible reviews over the years, and selling Womanizer toys has made me pretty envious of some of the responses we’ve been getting from these toys. “Cultural change” probably refers to the stigma around male sex toys – Fleshlights and masturbators are still perceived as pretty crude – and to be totally fair, a lot of them are. A lot of toy descriptions are pretty poor when it comes to the whole “treating women like real people” side of things, and innovations from a leading company would definitely put masturbators on a lot more peoples maps. Sleek, sexy, subtle designs? Masturbators marketed like luxury cars? Perfect for breaking down pre-conceived notions about sex toys. “Redefines a whole category”? We’ll see!

 

The trailer continues.

 

“It’s about adding a new spark to men’s masturbation and making smart devices a natural part of our sexual lives.”

 

While the products will speak for the “new spark” side of things, “making smart devices a natural part of our sexual lives” is what WOW Tech has been doing best. I’ll try to avoid pumping the tyres of WOW Tech too much – they don’t pay me (yet?) – but they’re some of the highest quality sex toys on the market, and they’re already some pretty smart devices. During this line, however, we catch our first glimpse at an actual product shot. At the 0:23 mark, we’re greeted by an app; the ARCWAVE logo sitting at the top of the app interface. 

We see 3 dots (we’ll come back to them), and some text towards the bottom of the UI. It took some squinting, but what I understand that to say, is a measurement of hertz and megahertz. This EXCITED me. The first thing I could relate this sort of technology to was the JETT from Hot Octopuss. The JETT utilises 2 bullets, one treble & one bass, to “Find your Frequency” and utilise the impressive sonic capabilities of treble & bass to bring you to a, supposedly, hands free orgasm! The ARCWAVE toy seems a little different, however. On the screen, we can see three dots – and while the UI towards the bottom only shows MED (medium) and HIGH (I don’t need to explain this one, either), we can safely assume there’s also a LOW (I think I use parenthesis too much), as well, taking the technology of Hot Octopuss a step further. The other interesting thing about this shot? 

Just a few frames later, the app is interacted with, and seemingly corresponding lights reflect an increase in power. Instant connectivity from phone to toy? How very We-Vibe of you, ARCWAVE! What intrigues me most about this is the fact that the JETT is just a cock ring. They market it as a “Guybrator”, but it’s also a ring that fits around a penis and vibrates. Sounds quite cock-ring-y to me. The ARCWAVE toy, however, seems like a fully fledged masturbator utilising some pretty phenomenal technology. I’m excited, that’s for sure. 

 

The phone connectivity begs a few questions, however. To what extent did they develop this? We-Vibes have become notorious for connecting long-distance couples, with their worldwide app connectability, but is ARCWAVE going to do the same? If these are masturbators that aren’t under the We-Vibe name, will they be compatible with the We-Vibe app so that partners from across the world can both experience their toys to the fullest? Assumedly not, which might be a misstep in connecting the WOW Tech Ecosystem. And similarly, toys prior to the We-Vibe Chorus had some pretty shoddy phone connectivity. Both the Chorus and the ARCWAVE line were announced in October 2019, and while the Chorus was released only months later, the We-Vibe wand was released at the same time, and doesn’t feature the upgraded phone connection through ANKORLINK. Will the ARCWAVE line include this improved connection? Only time will tell.

 

As the trailer continues, there are some more vague product shots that unfortunately don’t give us any ideas as to what to expect, but there are some general hints here and there. At the 0:33 mark, we’re given a splitscreen of smashed ice and fire. My speculative eye makes me think we’re getting some sort of temperature play toy in this line, and that’s pretty damn impressive. We’ve seen plenty of heating toys – they’re pretty common – but toys that can cool themselves? That’s new! Obviously cooling lube exists, but built right into the toy? That’s going to be a sight to behold. Now, this shot could very well just be stock footage ARCWAVE threw in to make this trailer seem wicked, as that’s seemingly most of the trailer, but I’d hope a few hints were dropped throughout the video to reward those with a keen eye (or maybe just too much time on their hands). 

 

At 0:40, we’re given a look at what seems like one of the masturbators in this line. This one, in particular, reminds me of a KIIROO toy. For those unaware, KIIROO is a company that specialises in long distance toys and teledildonics. I wrote about their Onyx 2 & Pearl 2 in a past article, and while there was a bit to be desired with those toys, they definitely had the right idea. Those toys could be connected to videos, partners, and animations, and synced up the action on the video to the action on your bits. Similarly, SenseMax’s SenseTube also forayed into the digital/physical masturbator realm, with questionable success levels, but A+ for effort. Is there going to be a similar theme with long distance Toy2Toy pairing? In the past, We-Vibe toy connectivity has been app only, meaning partners could control eachothers toy with a simultaneous app connection, but no feedback from the toy could be send to the other toy, unlike the KIIROO line. But with the addition of Chorus’s TouchSense, allowing for intra-toy feedback, could we see something expanded in the ARCWAVE line?

 

Something to note is the heavy water imagery in the trailer. Waterproofing is usually a given with WOW Tech, as every toy currently in their lines is waterproof, but could we see something like the PDX Hydrobater? For those unaware, the Hydrobater is used underwater, and rushes water past the penis, as if Poseidon himself was getting down & dirty with humans. By all accounts, the Hydrobater is phenomenal, and something out of left field like that definitely wouldn’t be out of the question for a company known for taking a chance that pays its dividends tenfold.

 

A few smaller things I noticed that didn’t deserve a full paragraph would be:

  • There seems to be what looks like speaker holes/meshing on the base (or top?) of one (or some) of the toys in the line. Could they be taking a page from Svakom’s book and including sounds built into the toy?
  • Although it makes sense to include imagery of scantily clad women in the ad, would this also imply that inter-toy connectivity we desired?
  • A lot of the imagery seems to be derived from Hot Octopuss, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of similarities between lines. The Hot Octopuss Pulse line of “Guybrators” has been doing phenomenally. Do we see a similar toy here?
  • The toy was announced in October 2019, with an early 2020 release expected. As this article is released, it’s September 2020, and the website has remained seemingly untouched since the release trailer was dropped. Should we expect a 2021 release instead?

 

In conclusion, ARCWAVE seems incredibly promising. I’m excited, and I’m sure everyone else who has been a fan of WOW Tech toys would be too, but due to the seemingly heavy delays, and lack of updates throughout a whole year, I worry about the release of this line. However, I’m yet to be disappointed by WOW Tech, and while weary, I’m still hopeful that this will genuinely be a revolution in the male sex toy world. Here’s to hoping the ARCWAVE line is released soon, and exceeds every expectation we could ever have!  We will be the first to have them on board at the Oh Zone Adult Stores.

Meditation With Kegel Balls!

sextoy meditation

A quick spiel on weighted balls

 

During meditation, you may have heard of Baoding balls, or meditation balls, round weighted balls that as you move them around in your hand the weight shifts, engaging your attention, centering your mind and connecting with you on more than a physical level.

 

Did you know there are intimate toys available that do the same?

 

Insert them, wear them and as you move the weighted balls roll inside the toy, sliding, tipping and causing your automatic muscles to tighten, release and use your body’s natural vibration to arouse you and the sensations to ricochet through you.

 

Often there are toys that are sold as “weighted” which usually means that the toy in question is heavy, with additional weights manufactured inside to develop and create a large sense of feeling filled, which of course is very satisfying for some.

 

The following products differ from normal weighted intimate toys. Yes they have additional weights, many having the weight advertised on the packaging. But the following products are special because the weights are not solid. They are engineered to move. Engineered to follow and counterbalance the body’s movements. This combination, like the meditation balls, provides a natural vibration unlike electronic vibrations, it is almost musical.

 

Let’s start with Kegel balls. We have talked about Kegel balls and their benefits for strengthening your pelvic floor, increasing your control over your orgasms and feeling more than just a little pleasant. Did you know that there are some with these delightful rolling weighted balls in them as well. There has never been a more fun excuse to pop them in as you dash to the shops. Your secret, your exercise, your delight. Ask your Ohzone sales expert about our rolling kegel balls for some recommendations

 

Fun Factory has created the “bouncer” a well crafted, body safe silicone dildo that is compatible with harnesses, has a wide base so can be used vaginally or anally with 3 weighted balls inside the body safe silicone moulding. Place it in your hand and give it a shake and you can see the way the balls connect with your on a cellular level. And that is just your hand. Coupled with the power of thrusting, these natural vibrations will echo throughout you and drive you, closer, higher, and deeper into bliss. Fun Factory also utilises these rolling balls inside their B-Balls and smart balls. The beautiful tapered design on the B-balls allow the wearer comfort and discretion under their clothes and comfortable enough to sit down anywhere with the slim elongated base of the plug able to fit between the cheeks pleasantly. The smartballs come in sets of one or two to cater to beginners and advanced players. With an easy retrieval cord these kegel balls are guaranteed to feel non-invasive, well except for those pleasureable vibrations.

 

B-Vibe, who are devoted to innovatively producing and educating the world about anal pleasure have a line of plugs “snug plugs” that are weighted and tapered to give a full feeling when wearing them. With an array of sizes to stretch and reverberate inside you, these ingenious plugs also come equipped with two rolling balls that move with your own body’s rhythms. Wear these during sex, wear them to work, wear them cleaning the house, or my personal favourite, wear them to yoga, pilates or the gym and really see just how much your body moves to and fro through the motions. Feel those motions like never before.

 

These weighted balls are beautifully crafted to give you an even more in depth knowledge and connection to your own body and your own pleasure. Have you heard of Sex Meditation? Meditation can be hard for some people. The answer could lie within sex and knowing your own body. Try wearing any weighted, rolling intimate toy and listen to how it feels. See what happens as you walk to the kitchen. The movement and natural vibrations make it hard not to be mindful and present as they rumble inside you.

 

Weighted toys are a fantastic way to get more attuned to your own body, to learn and concentrate better on your pleasure and to bring you to the present moment. Introduce these during intimate play and experience further sensations. Whether it is penetrative or oral stimulation the weights pick up on the subtle movements of your body as you play. Using any of the weighted anal plugs during vaginal penetrative sex also holds the benefits of compressing the vaginal cavity to increase stimulation to the harder to reach G and A spot. Regardless, they are sure to get you in the mood.

A Lesbians Guide to Making Strap-Ons More Fun

lesbian sex toys
Strap-ons are one of my absolute favourite things to use during sex! It’s been a long road of learning what straps make me feel most comfortable and what style of dildos I like using and which ones make me feel good when I spot myself in the mirror. Dildo choices have come a long way over the last few years, so many new brands have come out with toys that don’t look like penises but still have a great range of different shapes, sizes and colours. Then there’s the brands that have come out with revolutionary dildos that look and feel ultra-realistic, some get erect and some even ejaculate.
Then there’s share dildos…. 3 years ago I admitted that I couldn’t hold one in… this is still the case, so today I’ll be giving you my updated list of toys that makes using straps a little bit more exciting for the wearer.
We Vibe Chorus 

We Vibe update their couple’s vibrator every few years, this year they released the chorus and it’s stronger and better than ever. This toy is my personal favourite to combine with my straps. It gives you both internal and external stimulation whilst being a completely hands-free toy. If you insert the bigger motor, the smaller motor sits nicely flat in the front where the strapon dildo sits and you can feel the vibrations through the dildo, making it a little more fun for your partner as well. You’ll definitely need the remote to control the toy once inserted and then it’s up to you who gets to be in control.

 
We Vibe Jive 
If you’re a beginner with toys or you’re the kind of person that gets over stimulated if too much is going on at the same time then the We Vibe Jive is a better toy start off with. For me personally I find the Jive to be a little weak, but for someone who can’t handle a lot of vibration, this is perfect. It has a longer body than most standard eggs and it has a curve to it so when you’re using it with straps it would move with your body when you’re thrusting. On the tip of the tail you’ll find your control button.
Romp Wave 
Let me just start with, this toy won’t work with all types of straps, it will need support to stay in place. Boxer short harnesses or any harness that has 2 straps running underneath your bits should do the job. The Romp Wave is an external vibrator that has a larger body and motor then just your standard bullet. It should sit nicely under your bits, massaging different areas while you’re thrusting up against it. It’s quite a thin toy and it’s covered in soft silicone so it will be nice and comfy.

7 Things You Need To Know About the Online Sex Toy Industry

sex toys

There’s never been a better time to start playing with sex toys. By now, old taboos regarding sexuality and its exploration are almost completely gone. Sex toys are just as common as online dating these days, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of.

 

However, sex toys are nothing new really, it’s just the perception of them that’s changing. Ancient Greeks used what were basically dildo breadsticks (olisbokollikes) to have some naughty fun. At several points in history, vibrators were even used as a cure for hysteria or to relieve muscle pain. 

 

They were one of the first domestic appliances to be electrified. Of course, discretion dictated they be called “personal massagers.” There are plenty of other interesting facts regarding sex toys that we won’t go into here, but you get the idea. Exploring your sexuality with sex toys dates much further back than society dares to admit.

 

As we’ve already said, old taboos are almost completely gone, meaning some of the stigmas still remain. However, as time passes, people seem more and more willing to reject taboos and be more open-minded about the self and the world. 

 

The same goes for the sex toy industry, which has been largely destigmatized. That has led to immense profit for businesses whose goal is to provide the tools necessary for total sexual liberation. Here are seven facts about the online sex toy industry to help you understand it better.

Fact 1 – Everyone Plays in Some Manner

 

Or almost everyone. While sex-related taboos are slowly but surely disappearing, many people still prefer not to talk about their sex toy experiences. Whether it’s due to leftover social stigma or fear of ridicule, it’s hard to say. But the truth is that using sex toys is still not discussed openly enough. (At least not in front of friends and family.)

 

However, regardless of what people claim (or not), the sales numbers don’t lie. Sex toy industry rakes in a whopping $15 billion annually in the US alone. Estimates claim that this market segment will surpass $50 billion by 2020.

 

If the sales figures and projections don’t convince you, this might — 44% of women between the ages of eighteen and sixty have used a sex toy at least once. Most of them were in a relationship at the time, which just goes to show how pervasive sex toys are. Married women are especially likely to introduce toys into their sex life.

 

It’s not just women, though — 42% of men admit to buying a sex toy at one point or another. However, sex toys for men are still somewhat taboo, at least more so than toys for women. That’s why 70% of men say they’d like to be able to buy toys without embarrassment. Whatever society thinks, though, won’t change the fact that the famous Fleshlight sold 400,000 units in 2016. 

 

What all this shows is that more or less everyone plays with sex toys. People enjoy and will keep enjoying sex toys regardless of how much stigma there is.

 

Fact 2 – Do-it-yourself Sex Toys Are a Definite Thing

 

So what happens when people don’t have access to sex toys? They begin to sexualize common household objects, of course. This just shows how strong our urge to explore our own sexuality is.

 

Now, there’s a world of pleasure to be derived from objects found around the house. No one can deny that. Electric toothbrushes, cucumbers, ice cubes, bathtub faucets, belts, and pearl necklaces are only some of the most popular household toys. Don’t forget that there’s plenty of fetishes out there, and different items around the house satisfy various needs.

 

But there’s also no denying that nothing is as safe and valuable as professionally-made sex toys. Non-porous materials such as silicone are far safer and less bacteria-ridden than food or wood. That’s why do-it-yourself sex toys are the real deal, and why you can buy a kit to make your own. Do-it-yourself vibrators are more common than ever, so it might be the right time to brainstorm some cool designs.

 

Fact 3 – Not All Sex Toys Are Made Equal

 

Some go into your vagina, others into your anus. Some you’ll penetrate, and some will penetrate you. But that’s not where the differences between various sex toys end.

 

One of the most important considerations, and quite a serious one at that, is the material the toy is made out of. Indeed, not all sex toys are made equal, and you should know what to avoid.

 

At the top of the list of materials to avoid is jelly. Jelly sex toys contain phthalates in an excessive amount, which is potentially hazardous for your health. Phthalates are chemical compounds that give sex toys (and various other commodities) their flexibility. However, they’re highly toxic and can lead to sterility and even cancer.

 

Jelly is smooth, bendable, and incredibly cheap to make or buy. For the reasons above, however, you must make sure to ask about phthalates before buying.

 

Plastic sex toys are almost as cheap but without the phthalates. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check if there aren’t any, though. 

 

The point of plastic is to be hard, rigid, and easy to clean afterward. All of that makes it a perfect material for vibrators.

 

Next up is silicone, the current sex toy industry standard. Softer than plastic, non-porous (unlike jelly), and highly durable, silicone sex toys are a safe bet. Stick to water-based lubricants to avoid damage to your silicone sex toy, and it might even last a lifetime.

 

Glass and metal are top-notch sex toy materials, perfect for temperature play. They also look far more elegant and stylish than all the others and are completely tasteless and odorless.

 

As you can see, you have plenty of choices when it comes to sex toys. It’s crucial to make an informed decision to avoid phthalates, but other than that, everything goes.

 

Fact 4 – Competition Drives Innovation

 

Where there’s money, there’s also competition, and we’ve already established that the sex toy industry is a booming one. It’s also very fierce competition at that, and one that customers are benefiting the most from.

 

As with any other industry out there, competition breeds innovation. And innovation in the sex toy industry has been marvelous indeed. We’ve come a long way from basic, manually-operated tools to intelligent sex robots. Imagine having a sex toy that has the capacity to listen to your body and deliver just the right kind of pleasure.

 

However, the competition and advances in tech should not discourage you from trying your hand at making sex toys. There’s plenty of room to make a business out of it and prosper. A lot of people are looking for the next best design or a unique sex toy to try out. There are already more than hundreds, if not thousands, of custom dildo designs out there, so why not make one yourself?

 

What awaits us in the future of this industry? We already have the kinds of sex toys that were unimaginable only decades ago. Who knows, you might be the brain behind the next Fleshlight!

 

Fact 5 – Sex Toy Shops Are Embracing Uniqueness

 

With almost all stigma gone, there’s nothing stopping sex toy businesses from becoming reputable brands with loyal customer bases. Sex toy shops are embracing that which makes them stand out and relying on their uniqueness.

 

That means that sex toy shops are on equal footing with other businesses, regardless of what they do. Just like any other business, sex toy shops can now take up a unique identity of their own and use it to gain traction among customers.

 

For example, take a look at Bad Dragon — it’s all about incredible, unique designs and textures that add an artistic touch to your sex toy adventure. Its toys even have cum holes! As for ElectraStim, it’s all in the name. This company’s products focus on electro-stimulation to give you the ride of your life.

 

Medical Toys makes “playing doctor” an adult-only activity. Kitten Cream features butt plugs with furry tails — you even get ears for increased roleplay value. As for the Twisted Monk… well, we hope you’re into bondage.

 

Each and every one of these sex toy stores has taken on an identity that attracts specific customers. That’s just an example of all that’s going on in the sex toy industry —  there’s plenty more to come.

 

Fact 6 – Successful Online Sex Toy Shops Are Titans of the Industry

 

Sex toy stores have been dominating the market for a long time, that is until the advent of the internet. Unfortunately for them, they can’t hold a candle to successful online sex toy shops. Online sex toy shops have the ability to reach audiences like never before, and far more discreetly.

 

If you’re new to the sex toy scene and are wondering who those titans are, you need not look further. Here are some of the biggest players in the sex toy industry with an online presence:

 

  • SheVibe
  • The Pleasure Chest
  • Good Vibrations
  • Smitten Kitten
  • Babeland
  • LoveHoney
  • Lelo
  • Lovense
  • Amazon
  • Geeky Sex Toys
  • Etsy.

 

Even if you’re not a user of sex toys, you probably know of Amazon or Etsy at least. It just shows how profitable the sex toy market is when giants such as Amazon have taken notice.

 

The rest of the online sex toy shops on the list are all worth exploring. Each of them has some unique and interesting products to browse. 

 

Fact 7 – The Sex Toy Industry Shows No Signs of Slowing Down

 

As we’ve previously mentioned, the online business format has done wonders for the sex toy industry. There have never been more websites that serve every sexual fetish and every niche desire people might have. Sexual exploration and experimentation have never been easier and more readily available. Don’t expect this train to slow down any time soon.

 

What’s even better is that the sex toy industry has an interesting ability to outlive harsh economic conditions. No matter how hard life is at any given moment, people find ways to have some naughty sex. And now, there will always be companies that are willing to provide the tools that make it so naughty.

 

Conclusion

 

The sex toy industry has gone through an incredible boom, and it has no intention of slowing down. What’s even more impressive, besides the enormous effect it’s had on the economy, is the sexual revolution that this industry enables. Now more than ever, sex toys are paving the way to greater personal sexual liberation and awareness.

 

And that’s exactly what we need as a society. We need individuals who are not ashamed of who they are or what their sexual preferences entail. Explore your literal and metaphorical depths without fear or shame or doubt. We’re all human and we’re naturally very, very, curious.
