Their product’s are made with the finest selection of 100% platinum silicone which is phthalate free, odourless and completely body safe, they are literary made to last you a life time. Mr. Hankey Toys products are designed to be compatible with the Vac-U-Lock system so that can be used with harnesses, suction cups, handles, hand grips and so much more. This is a VIP Interview With Mr. Hankey himself who is a partner of the company.

Tell me about yourself

I go by the name Mr. Hankey and am a partner in the Company, I am 40 years old.  I choose to remain anonymous because I am involved with other types of businesses and services in the community that would not be very accepting of my current position at Mr. Hankey’s Toys.  I appear pretty normal from the outside but have a pretty twisted mind, talking to me you would never guess though.  At work I am all business and in “work mode”, outside of work I am rarely ever very serious about anything.

What inspired you to begin your business Mr Hankey Toys?

There are really not very many manufacturer’s that produce large, platinum silicone toys.  I was disappointed in the (lack of) customer service with some, wait times with others and (lack of) new ideas and creativity with the rest.  I never really meant for this to grow as quickly as it has, I started off with one toy, the “Mr. Hankey” and sold it.  People bought it and liked it so I made more and more.  I have always had other means to support myself financially so doing this on the side was just a hobby.  It took a long time and a lot of money before it turned a profit.  You have to buy silicone in 55 gallon drum kits (110 gallons) to be able to turn a profit, we purchase about 3-4 drum kits at a time now and convert them into pails that are loaded into our machine.  I remember when I released the Mr. Hankey, I used to purchase 1 gallon kits.  I was happy if I sold 1 a week.  Now we can barely keep up.

What character traits do you feel you needed to create your own company?

I am extremely disciplined and understand the importance of long term outlook and strategy.  I also understand that I sell to a niche market and not one that might do particularly well in your typical run-of-the-mill adult store so I am very picky about the retailers we sell to and we reject almost all retail sellers that approach us except for a select few.  I am very honest and run a very tight, clean and efficient business.  We understand that customers want a high quality product at a low price so that’s what I offer.  Silicone is never cheap but if you compare our price (by weight) we are lower than everyone else out there.  Our customer service is flawless; all emails go directly to me and I answer each and every one, sometimes instantly but usually no later than within a couple hours.  Our shipping time is nearly next day, we manufacture and ship as quickly as possible.  If a customer has a special request, we always try to accommodate.  We treat each customer like they were the only customer we have and will ever have.

What are your favourite quote/s that inspire you?

I can’t think of any quotes off the top of my head.  I don’t hang pictures in my shop that say “Success” or “Goals” or anything cheesy like that.  What inspires me is treating it like a game and trying to grow it and make it something that I can retire doing, I really love what I do and find the whole process of building the Company to be extremely satisfying and fun.  I have a GED so you have to realize that getting this far has far exceeded my own personal expectations (and the expectations of others as well), I guess I have been pretty good at self-educating myself between high school and now.  I have a son that is probably  my greatest reason to succeed with the Company.  No matter what, I have decided that the money will be there if he chooses to go to college, that was not something that was available for me at any point.  He will have a much different upbringing than I had and I hope he does not take that for granted.

How long does it take to design a Mr Hankey Toy?

It used to take about a week to design and release a toy, now it takes about 6-8 weeks typically.  Most of the process is proprietary, that’s why our toys look different and have so much detail and unique properties.  I can say that I send a basic idea with dimensions to our designer in San Francisco and they take if from their, it comes back for final approval and there may be some changes made then it starts to go into production mode.  Once it’s ready it goes to the photographer then we list it on the site. It has become an extremely costly process to develop a toy from start to finish but with the added costs also comes constantly better toys so I believe the added cost has been well worth it.  I do have to give much credit to our designer, he never compromises on quality and is excellent at what he does, we are very lucky to have him working with us.

All your toys are made with 100% platinum silicone, though not all platinum silicone is the same. What types of platinum silicone do you use and what are their benefits?

What people should actually understand is that there are no toys that are made of medical grade platinum silicone.  If a company says they are using medical grade silicone they are probably not.  You cannot take one of our toys and have a surgeon implant it in your chest.  Most plat silicone is not ISO rated skin safe either although I will say that other formulations of silicone may very well be skin safe, they have just not undergone the rigorous testing needed to earn that certification.  All in all, if you buy a platinum silicone product, I would not be too concerned about it’s safety, even if it’s a lower quality platinum silicone.  The toys you want to avoid are the mass produced, stinky stuff that’s sold at most adult stores.  That stuff is nasty.  We use a USA produced ISO 10993-10 certified skin safe silicone although I would not say that it is generally any safer than any of our competitors that don’t use an ISO rated skin safe USA manufactured platinum silicone.  Platinum silicone is generally safe whether it comes with certification or not.  Let me add a note that I do not and would not trust that any product that is labelled platinum silicone that originates from outside the US, especially China, is actually platinum silicone, the ability to confirm and QC any raw material that comes from outside the US is almost impossible.  In general, you also don’t want to buy tin-cure silicone.  If the toy is simply labelled “silicone” then you really don’t know what it is and it is probably not platinum silicone.  If you are looking for a silicone toy, you want to buy “Platinum-cure Silicone or Platinum Silicone” both are the same thing and it’s the absolute best material you can choose when buying a sex toy.

Your toys can be used with a removable testicle attachment named the “Mr Hankey’s Remove-O-Balls” so people can experience the natural feeling of testicles slapping or smacking your body during penetrative play. Do you find that people enjoy the feeling and sound of natural sex which adds to the experience?

The Remove O Balls are great on any sex machine or when used in a motion that will get them swinging and smacking.  It’s pretty hard to find toys that have balls that will actually move and smack.  Yes, to answer the question, when used in a particular way I do believe that the ROB’s add to the experience.

REMOVE-O-BALLS By Mr. Hankey Toys

All your toys can be used with sex machine and strap-ons due to their compatibility with the Vac-U-Lock system. This adds incredibly functionality, does a customer needs to purchase it at check out in order for it to work or are they able to use the toy and then buy one later?

The vac-u-lock option is just a hole.  You add your own attachment.  I always suggest buying the toy with the hole just in case you do ever want to use it with any type of attachment such as a sex machine or strap-on.  The holes cannot be added later, they are cast into the toy.  If you try to drill or cut a hole into the back of the toy it will most likely cause your toy to split over time.

What other features would you recommend that you can add to a Mr Hankey Toy? (For example, suctions cups, handles, cock rings etc)

There have not been too many new additions to vac-u-lock attachments that I have seen.  There is a suction cup that is readily available online along with a handle I have seen.  People need to get creative sometimes and invent their own stuff, like a handle.  The mass marketed stuff out there is just not that great and very unimaginative.  Really, for the people using my toys, I would recommend a machine (Orgasm Alley) or/and a strap-on (Unisex – Corey Jay harness by Mr. S).  Well worth the money and will spice up your sex life quite a bit.

Can Mr Hankey Toys be used for temperature play? Can I place it in cold water with ice cubes or in some warm water?

Sure, you can toss them in a freezer or put them in a microwave.  Silicone will retain heat for quite a while.  2 minutes in the microwave and see how you like it.  Add more time if you want it hotter.  Silicone won’t melt like rubber or plastic, you can heat up hotter than you can ever want or should (don’t blame me if you get burnt).

What types of people would you recommend use the Medium Firm and the 75% Soft Level Firm?

There’s not a huge difference between the two but enough that I would consider the 75% (the softer formula) to be preferred by those that like their toys on the softer side or are trying to get a toy to fit a little easier, the softer formula will squish and bend and form to your body a bit easier.  The Med-Firm (firm formula) is for those that like their toys on the firmer side and may be a bit more experienced or want to “feel” bumps and texture a bit more.  Most people buy the 75% formula and that’s what I would recommend unless you know that you like your toys on the firm side.

What are your best sellers?

The Hogg has always done well, that one has a very unique shape that people like.  We are currently resizing the Hogg and will be offering it in a total of 5 sizes, it’s currently only offered in 1 size.  They all sell relatively well, some better than others but overall they all still do well, even our first toy, Mr. Hankey. The shape and size are going to be what makes a person really like their toy or not, people need to think about what they like when they are buying a toy.  Do they want it to get wider at the base?  A small head, a giant head?  Lots of texture or smooth?  Fat or skinny?  Long or short?  Those are the questions people need to ask when they are shopping, we have something for almost everyone and offer a lot of different shapes.

HELP! My Boyfriend Hates My Sex Toys.

Red Head On Bed

Did your lover want to use a vibrator to experience the ultimate climax? Are you worried that she will end up spending too much time with it at your expense? Research has shown that sales of vibrators for women have skyrocketed with even some celebrities like Rihanna spending thousands of dollars on them. With such soaring sales, it seems that women are depending more on toys to satisfy their sexual desires. As a man, this makes me worried and I can understand why most men are intimidated by these devices.

If you are a man and feel that vibrators for women are a threat to you, it is time you embarked in a completely new direction. If you are using a sex toy on her, you can stimulate her clit with your other hand or mouth so that you are involved in the action. You can also make a point of investing in toys that are designed for use by couples and take control while having sex. Have you ever thought about using a Cock Ring? It will send both of you to the heavens. A Cock Ring is used to increase the blood flow in the penis which will make your erection feel stronger and help you to last longer.

Sex toys are an excellent gift to give your girl for special occasions such as on Valentine’s Day or on a Wedding Anniversary. But it can prove to be quite trickier than you anticipate getting the right sex toy that will please her. It is very easy to choose something that she won’t like and if you are not careful, you might even end up offending her or upsetting her and this is the last thing you want to. So before you order a sex toy for her from an adult store, you must have an idea of exactly what she wants and then shop for it.

In any relationship, communication is vital, it is the only way to know exactly what she likes. If you manage to identify a sex toy that she wants, this will instantly jump start your sex life. First, you will need to be very attentive when having sex with your girl. Take your time to understand what gives her fast and wild orgasms. She may like clitoral stimulation, g-spot stimulation or she may like you to stimulate her g-spot and clitoris at the same time. Once you have decoded her desires and needs, you will know which sex toys to give her.

LELO Luxury Vibrating Sex Toy

Buying a cheaply made sex toy that is of poor quality will disappoint her and she will hate you for it. These toys not only fail to get the job done appropriately but they may easily break which means you will have to replace them. They can also cause allergic reactions while others might expose her body to toxic materials.

When giving your girl a gift, it is essential that you go for a high end or luxury sex toy that will surely impress her. A gift must be special and be a symbol that you really love her. These sex toys are made with higher quality features, functions and materials. Some of these sex toys may be whisper quiet, waterproof, having multiple vibrations modes and are often made with body safe materials that are phthalate free. They may be priced higher but you will never regret your purchase as you will definitely get the value for the money you spend.

I personally recommend buying a luxury sex toy made by the adult lifestyle brand LELO. My favourite vibrator from their range is the LELO Mona Wave which moves back and forth in a come hither motion. It is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and is made using body safe materials. It has a travel locking feature so you are able to take it with you anywhere without the fear of accidently turning on. Within a few minutes of using the LELO Mona Wave, she will experience a mind blowing G-Spot orgasm.

Sex toys for adults have really transformed a lot over the past couple of years, you no longer have to buy products made from toxic materials. These days you are able to buy a powerful sex toy made with high quality materials and functions which will pleasure you. I recommend shopping at Adultsmart which is an online trusted sex toy shop which stocks a wide range of these wonderful products to ensure that your healthy sex life doesn’t start spiraling downhill. You will always find something that is perfect for the two of you. There are so many toys available that can make your sex life extremely pleasurable.

Is Virtual Sex The Best Sex?

VR Headset By Sega

It is becoming an undeniable truth that technology is infusing itself with our everyday lives in obvious and subtle ways. From how we communicate with each other, to the way we work, the jobs we do and how we exist in our own homes. The world is changing and it is increasingly geared towards smart technology and automation. This is no different for the sex toy industry.

Walking into one of our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres shows the development and advancements in adult toys. A brand we carry that I feel highlights this is our SenseMax Range. SenseMax is a Virtual Reality (VR) based system that uses a headset and matching toys to provide the user with the ultimate VR sexual/pleasure experience.

What is VR?

Virtual Reality or VR, has been around in one form or another since the 1950’s but it became wildly popular in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s with the commercial realises of the SEGA VR and the Power Glove. These were sold as accessories to game consoles, and while they were popular, they were also seen as a novelty with limited games and a somewhat clunky interface.

VR Glove By Mattel

Interest in VR peaked again in recent years when development of Oculus Rift VR began promising a fully immersive and realistic VR experience that was to extend beyond video games and find a use in our everyday lives (Facebook liked the sound of this and purchased Oculus in 2014 for $2 Billion.) Other big teach companies began to invest millions in the area (Samsung, Apple, Sony, Amazon) which is seeing an incredible growth in the available technologies making it more affordable for both companies and the end user.

What is SenseMax?

It was out of this boom the SenseMax VR system was born. Utilising a head set paired with specialised adult toys and an app to create “the Sense Ecosystem with interactive content provided by the SenseNow app to provide a holistic sensual/pleasure experience”. The range includes:

Sense VR

This is the head set in the SenseMax Range. You are able to slide your phone in the front of the headset and view specialised content through the SenseMax App.

SenseVibe

This is the vibrator in the SenseMax Range. Dual motored and waterproof this vibe charges when it is put back into its storage case. The red version (pictured above) also has a warming function.

SenseTube

This is a type of mens masturbator or stroker in the range that vibrates. The SenseTube also syncs with the App to closely simulate the sensations being shown on the display.

SenseBand

This band is to be worn by the man when he masturbates. This allows, like the SenseTube, the actions and pace to sync with the action on the display creating a truly immersive experience.

SenseMax SenseBand
Sex Toy: SenseBand

The magic of SenseMax Range is not just VR and sex toys but that it is a system that actually syncs the content you are seeing through the headset and to the pace you are setting with your toy or wrist band (SenseTube and SenseBand only). This means that it doesn’t matter what you are in the mood for the SenseMax Range is right there with you.  Now if VR isn’t your thing both the SenseTube and SenseVibe can be used on their own without the headset or App.  But weather it is your thing or not, I think we can all agree that technology has come a long way and is going a long way to make us cum.

Couple On Bed Talking About Sex Toys

People are usually embarrassed to talk about their sex lives even though it is one of the biggest problems that almost everybody faces. People prefer to keep it a secret and confined within their bedroom walls. It is recommended to talk to a health professional like a doctor who may advise you to use sex toys to relieve your built up sexual tension.

Using sex toys is one of the easiest ways to fulfill sexual needs and desires if it is lacking in a person’s daily life. If sex toys are used in a relationship, they are used to enhance the amount of pleasure which is experienced during sex which can lead to an effortless orgasm. Sex toys can provide various types of pleasure depending on the functions that it is. For example, some sex toys vibrate, others rotate and some even pulsate in a natural thrusting movement.

There are sex toys which are available for both men and women. Women can buy products like vibrators for g-spot or clitoris stimulation and Kegel balls to perform pelvic floor muscle exercises. Men are able to buy masturbators which have realistic and non-realistic designs and prostate massagers for anal play.

What Are The Advantages Of Online Sex Toy Shopping?

Most people are open minded about using sex toys and can easily visit a store. But if you are new to the experience and are shy in nature, there are online sex toy stores where you can easily make a purchase without having to worry about leaving the comfort of your home.  There are some advantages of buying sex toys online which include:

How Do I Find An Authentic Sex Toy Shop?

To begin shopping you need to find an authentic store that has a proven track record of happy shoppers. You will need to be careful, sadly there are fake companies out there who may take your money without sending you a product. In order to weed out the fake companies you are able to compare the customer reviews of various stores to find out which ones have the highest and lowest amount of trust. You can also ask your friend on what stores that they recommend. I recommend shopping at Adultsmart as it is highly rated on Trustpilot with over 185 reviews. They have an extremely high rating which means that they have customer services staff who offer high quality services and that the products that they sell are 100% authentic.

Have A Look At Honest Sex Toy Reviews

Once you have found a trusted sex toy store, it is then recommended to find websites and blogs that provide honest product reviews. They will talk about the quality of the product and the best ways to use the product. They will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly. This way you are able to make a purchase that is not only based upon knowledge about the product but also on what other people have experienced when they have tested the product.

When Shopping Keep In Mind Whether You Have Any Allergies

Before purchasing a product, you should ask yourself “Am I allergic to sex toy materials?“.  Many people forget or do not bother to check the type of material before they make a purchase, ensure that you check whether you are allergic to the material that it is made out of.

The Hidden Mystery Behind Dildos

Silicone Dildo By BS Atlier

You may be wondering what is a dildo? Dildos are an extremely popular sex toy that can be bought as gift for a person who loves the feeling of penetrative sex whether they are a women who would like to experience g-spot stimulation or a man who appreciates a prostate massage. People have two options when purchasing a Dildo, you can buy one which looks like a realistic penis or one which has non-phallic design.

When Were Dildos First Invented?

Dildos were one of the first sex toys types that was ever created. They were found as far back as 29, 000 BC in Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm in Germany. As science and technology has advanced over the years, almost every kind of adult lifestyle product that we use has been improved in some way but the humble Dildo has remained one of the most effective and reliable sex toys available.

Are Dildos Made From Body Safe Materials?

However, when Dildos were originally produced to be sold for the mass adult lifestyle market, they were made from rubber and jelly. In order to get the rubber and jelly feeling soft, clear and flexible they were made with chemicals like phthalates that are toxic to the body. With the knowledge that these materials were made with harsh chemicals, most adult lifestyle companies decided to use materials which are considered to be body safe. Now Dildos are made from an array of materials including glass, pure silicone, CyberSkin, PVC, leather and even metal. But you will need to check whether the product you are planning on purchasing is body safe. All these different kinds of materials have their own advantages and disadvantages. The best dildo material for you will depend on your own individual preferences and sometimes it takes a bit of experimentation to find out what you really like.

Companies like Doc Johnson and Tantus have made Dildo’s that have dual density layers which provide the feeling of realistic sex. Dildos with dual layers often have a hard inner layer of silicone and a soft outer layer of silicone. They are said to feel absolutely amazing especially when paired with a sex toys unique design and textures.

You can also find companies like BS Atelier in Madrid, LAID from Norway and Fun Factory in Germany who make their products from body safe and non-porous materials like pure silicone, glass and metal. To top that off, Fun Factory sex toys are made with even more functions including vibrations and pulsations for added stimulation.

All About Dildo Suction Cups And Harness Compatibility

The main two features which are sort after when purchasing a Dildo is whether it has a strong suction cup or whether it is harness compatible. A suction cup allows a person to use the sex toy for hands free stimulation, as it can be attached to a hard surface like tiles or inside a bathtub so that a person can use it as if it were a real erect penis. Whilst a Dildo which is made to be compatible with a harness normally has a flat base which can be placed securely into a harness. A Dildo with a harness allows a lover to wear it around their waist so that they are able to use it as if it were a part of their body for penetrative stimulation.

Where Can I Buy Dildos?

If you are buying a Dildo made from a silicone mix it is advised that you go into an Adult Lifestyle Centre so you can see whether the material has any manufacturing defaults like bubbles within the material. Though if you are buying a product which is made from a material like pure silicone or metal, you can easily and effortlessly buy them online from the comfort of your home.

No matter what kind of dildo you decide to buy and how you plan to use it, it is very important to buy it from a trusted adult sex toy store like Adultsmart or at an Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre. This will ensure that the product that you are getting is a hundred percent genuine and more importantly safe to use. Great Adult Sex Toy Stores also provide discounts to their customers on all kinds of products. So, when you buy dildos from them not only will you be getting the highest quality products but along with that you will also be saving money by being able to get those products at a lower price.
