Tell me about yourself

My name is Giorgia and I am 22.

After my graduation, I have started working for my father’s joinery in Magione, a little town in Umbria, in the centre of Italy. Our main business was, and still is, wooden fans and tailored wooden furniture production.

Sometime it occurred to me that I helped my father with his job, and that was my first approach to wooden craft.

Owing to the raise of wooden fans demand, my father managed to realize a special CNC equipment, which allowed him to speed up production pace by crafting each singular fan as demanded and halving production time.

What inspired the creation of the company Sex Wooden Toys?

It was just for fun that in 2012 my father and his friends tried to create a wooden dildo using the fan crafting machine. At that time, I was only 17 and I confess I was pretty reluctant to accept the idea that my father produced wooden penis.

However, my entrance in the company led me to understand that I wanted to branch off the wooden fans production and realize something that was wholly mine.

It was after the suggestion of Raffaele, my brother-in-law and member of my father’s company staff, that I took control of the Sex Wooden Toys project. I did not know if that was a good idea, As a consequence, Raffaele and I decided to put all our time and efforts on that concept, starting from reinventing Sex Wooden Toys brand image.

What types of woods are used?

The next step was about the choice of the wood, and our final selection included six types of wood that we considered appropriate for the purpose: olive, cherry, mahogany, durmast, padouk and wengè.

Are there differences between the types of woods that are used?

These woods have their own specific features about colour, veining and porosity.

For example, olive wood is smooth and garishly veined, padouk wood has an unmistakable red colour, durmast wood has the lightest colour and the best porosity and wengè wood features a characteristic dark nuance.

Afterwards, we inquired the most common and appreciated shapes in the world of dildos and sex toys to create our brand-new line of dildos, vibrators and plugs.

What inspires the beautiful names which are given to your products?

Our products’ names are inspired to the Greek mythology. I love Greek mythology and, after all, what is better for a woman than feeling like a goddess? Dildos and vibrators have feminine names because I want to dedicate them to women, as well as plugs have masculine names as a personal gift of mines to men.

Is Sex Wooden Toys the first Italian company to create toys out of wood?

We are proud to say that we are the first Italian company to produce sex toys by wood.

Are all your products handcrafted?

Our products come out as the result of the union between our own technology and the artisanal manual work, as every piece is finally refined by hand.

What coating do Sex Wooden Toys have which make them body safe?

Concerning surface coating, we hasten to highlight that our products have a three-layer varnishing, of which the first coating layer is meant to fill all the pores. The other two layers are meant to be eligible to be in contact with the skin and a water based, non-toxic, food varnish is utilized to this purpose. Usually, the first thought coming up about wood is about splinters, but our products are obviously worked to be completely safe.

Where can you buy Sex Wooden Toys products?

At this time, our sex toys are available on the e-commerce section of our website and on the American marketplace Etsy, and shipping is available all around the world. Here in Italy, our sex toys can be bought also in some local shops.

How has Sex Wooden Toys been received by bloggers and customers?

For months, we have worked to get our products known and sold in several countries in Northern Europe, in the US and Australia. Lots of bloggers provided our products with enthusiastic reviews we are really proud of.

A sex toy is a personal and intimate experience, a moment to dedicate to ourselves according to what we like and what is part of our fantasy. This is why this is a wide growing market with several unexplored business opportunities.

What distinguishes Sex Wooden Toys from other products?

What distinguishes our sex toys is surely the material, as wood is one of the oldest raw materials used by human beings to create tools and craft their lives. We just gave a new meaning to this material, widening its potential and raising its value from the conception as poor material to the new definition nearly as “piece of art”. Every piece is unique and features uncopiable elements.

Ins & Outs Of Anal Play

Aphrodisia Curved Vibrating Anal Plug In Purple Sex Toy Image

A beginner’s guide to anal sex toys starring the one and only Aphrodisia Curved Vibrating Anal Plug.

Anal. It can be really dreaded for some men and women when the subject is bought up by their significant other, but why are we so scared of it? Is it because (excuse me in advance) we are scared of releasing excrement while we are in the act of anal sex?  Is it because everyone tells you that “it hurts”? What are the difference for men, women and anal play? These are some key questions as to why so many people are scared of anal play and are even scared of using anal toys, but I would like to share some great tips and tricks on how to enjoy anal sex using toys such as the Aphrodisia Curved Vibrating Anal Plug.

Penis Size And Anal Penetration

First things first, once you have discussed it with your partner and you are both comfortable in the idea of trying anal sex for the first time where do you start? Like most people I’m sure you think LOTS and LOTS of lube is the most important thing, and then you just go for it. Right? Wrong!! The most common mistake people make when they decide to try anal sex for the first time is letting their partner use they’re penis to penetrate the anus for the first time. Ouch! With the average males penis size coming in at 5.5”-6.2” do you really want that to be the first thing you let penetrate such a sensitive area of the body? This is one of the most common reasons people are so scared of trying anal sex and why most people assume that it cannot be a pleasurable experience, which couldn’t be further from the truth and with great anal toys and a bit of preparation anal sex can be one of the most pleasurable experiences you and your partner can share together.

What Sex Toy Should I Use For Anal Play?

When it comes to anal toys how to you find the right one? Something not too big and not too small, vibrating or non-vibrating? Where do you look and how do you pick?

When it comes to anal play using vibration while stimulating the anus can increase sensitivity and pleasure greatly, and for women or men looking to find extra stimulation through anal sex vibrating toys can play a huge role.

How To Use Anal Sex Toys During Couples Play

Another way to incorporate anal toys into your sex life is to use them not only with your partner but even while you are having sex, double penetration can be one of the most intensely pleasurable feelings one can experience and even intensifies the orgasm you reach. With this easy to use beginners anal toy reaching intense orgasms through anal penetration is nothing more than simple.

Anal Play – I Did It My Way!

Fun Factory Flexi Felix Anal Beads In Black

Some of my most treasured possessions in my sex toy drawer(s) worthy of being saved in the unlikely event of a house fire include my anal toys. I find these toys to be the most used and loved in my solo and partnered sex life-there are so many different options that each lead to a uniquely pleasurable experience. Butt toys are a great way of experimenting with anal play and are particularly appropriate for those who may have some reluctance with this type of play.

I am proud to admit that 80% of my bootie toy collection consists of Fun Factory products. There are many reasons why I am a huge fan of Fun Factory’s amazing anal product line, their high quality, funky designs and potential for inducing exquisite pleasure being the obvious highlights.

My Favourite Sex Toy Is My Hand
Image: My Favourite Sex Toy

Fun Factory are a German based sex toy company, producing quirky, playful and amazing quality sex toys at affordable prices. They are made from medical grade silicone which I have found to have its own unique texture. Unlike other brands that have a silky-smooth feel, the silicone that Fun Factory use for their products is slightly textured and grabby. It feels amazing and is great when used with a high-quality water based lubricant such as Pjur Back Door Comfort Water Based Anal Glide. Medical Grade Silicone is a non-porous material which means it’s very hygienic hence great for anal play. With waterproof anal toys, I highly recommend using a foaming toy cleaner such as Wicked Foam n Fresh to keep them spick and span.

Safety is paramount when experimenting with toys and anal play. Unlike a woman’s vagina, the anus and gastrointestinal system is long and there is much larger room for error (To put it simply, you can lose things up there!!). To avoid a trip to the emergency department, it is vital that any toys you are using for anal play have a wide base and solid handle that is easy to hold onto so as to avoid missing toys.

Flexi Felix Anal Beads

To be perfectly honest, I used to have some big judgements of the Flexi Felix Anal Beads. I couldn’t understand what Fun Factory were thinking creating a butt toy with a weird alien head handle (According to Fun Factory, it is actually a beetle head). It freaked me out and I never actually opened the box until a few months of working in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. Well you know the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover?” This is exactly what I insist customers do when I present them with the Flexi Felix as I believe that once you really check them out, you will agree that they are amazing anal beads!! Their elongated shape means they are really comfortable to insert and remove. This is super important when it comes to any sex toy especially anal beads and means they are perfect for anal bead beginners. Flexi Felix Anal Beads are 32cms in total length and are available in black or pink.

Bootie Butt Plugs

The Bootie Butt Plug is a toy I hold near and dear to my heart as it was the first but plug I ever owned-my first introduction to butt toys in fact (I know, a very sweet story…Hold back your tears). Fun Factory have uniquely designed these toys, straying away from the traditional straight plugs and creating a curved plug with a tapered end that is a comfortable and snug fit. The base is intended to sit comfortably between your butt cheeks and is long enough to hold on to with ease. The Bootie plugs are available as singles in small, medium and large or in a box set with all three. The small is perfect for absolute beginners at 7.5cm in length and 2.5cm girth. The medium at 9.3cm length and 3.5cm width is a decent step up for intermediate users and the large at 11.1cm length and 4cm width is perfect for those who are experienced anal play peeps.

Fun Factory B Balls Sex Toy Image

B Balls

What do you get when you combine a Kegel exerciser and butt toy?! The Fun Factory B Balls of course!! The latest addition to my collection, this toy is stepping up to favourite position due to the exquisite pleasure it brings to my life. The B Balls are available in single or double, with each ball featuring a weighted ball within which creates a subtle shaking and vibrating-like sensation when moved around-no batteries required either! The pulsations of this travel through your body, a unique feeling that I am sure both men and women will love just as much as I do. The B Balls are available in Black/Red or Purple/White. The only part of these toys I will fault is the design not being smooth all over. I am not a fan of any sex toys that have cracks or creases, especially anal toys and these do. Prior to use, I would recommend anal douching and giving them a thorough cleaning after use, ensuring to not miss these spots.

What Can I Say About Prostate Play? Ditto

WeVibe Ditto Sex Toy Image

Keep ’em Coming We-Vibe!

It’s just gone past mid-way through 2017, a time of year where one likes to reflect on the successes and fails of the year when working in an adult store. The most notable success of 2017 in the sex toy manufacturing industry is Canadian world-leading company, We-Vibe, who have been consistently setting the bar for couples play around the world. 2017 saw We-Vibe bring out the Sync, the Wish, the Pivot and the Verge cock rings and now; Ditto, and I say “KEEP EM COMIN’ We-Vibe!!”.

What is the key to We-Vibe’s success you ask? It comes down to their world-class engineers and designers who work closely with sexual health and well-being experts, doctors and consumers to produce toys of an impeccable standard, that work with the human body. In saying this, I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that their first toy, the We-Vibe, is the most popular rechargeable vibe IN THE WORLD, with a crazy 2 million people getting down ‘n’ dirty with it.

Then it comes to butt plugs, a lot more thought and consideration has to go into the comfortability of the wearer than other toys, as the anal cavity is such a sensitive intimate area of the body, a seam out of place or a wrongly designed toy can be extremely uncomfortable for the wearer.

Now, when it comes to recommending a toy for a customer or even picking one out for myself or my partner, I have three CRUCIAL characteristics or qualities of a toy:

  1. The flexibility of the prostate massage device
  2. It must have soft, seamless silicone
  3. (If after vibrating plug) It must have strong, rumbly vibrations

Tick, Tick, Tick! Props to you, We-Vibe!

We-Vibe’s renowned rumbly vibrations, high-quality silicone and flexible, forgiving silicone have all made an appearance in the Ditto, making it one of my most lusted after vibrating plug’s to date.

As are all of We-Vibe’s collections, the Ditto was designed to intensify and add to solo masturbation, couples play and intercourse and thanks to the app compatibility of the Ditto, it can be worn almost anywhere, in any situation!

The Design of Ditto

Ditto was made with ultimate comfortability for the consumer in mind. Ditto is a pretty slim plug, making it perfect for beginner and intermediate plug players. Its dimensions are 68.45mm x 88.10mm. The toy itself is comparable to the size of the Sync. The back of Ditto is completely flat, while the front side is curved to fit the bodies natural contours, a major aspect of any We-Vibe toy.

Ditto is made from 100% medical grade, body-safe silicone, which is free of phthalates, BPA and latex. Paired with your favourite water based lubricant or a high-quality silicone lubricant, like Super Slyde, the Ditto feels INCREDIBLE.

The Functionality of Ditto

The Ditto is USB rechargeable through any USB port and takes 90 minutes to fully charge, giving you two hours of play time. The Ditto can be controlled through the included, advanced remote with intensity control, which is the same remote control that is included with the traditional We-Vibe’s. The We-Vibe Ditto is also fully compatible with the We-Connect Smartphone Application For Apple and Google device which is such a great, unique aspect of We-Vibe’s toy range.

The Ditto has 10 different vibration patterns, which range from four different levels of steady vibration, through to different massaging patterns and pulses.

We-Vibe did not want to restrict you or your partners play, so they, therefore, made the Ditto 100% waterproof, meaning you can enjoy your new toy anywhere you’d like to, in a safe and easy way. The 100% waterproof aspect of Ditto also makes it a nice and easy toy to clean, also. We’d recommend trying the Wet Stuff Toy Cleaner, for a thorough clean.

One thing I love about We-Vibe is that they do not skip out on an instruction manual. We don’t all know how to charge/use/lock a new toy, so I think it is great that We-Vibe is still one brand that consistently includes an instruction manual with their toy.

 

WeVibe Ditto Usage Image
Image: How The We-Vibe Ditto Is Worn

 

Ditto is available in two stunning colours: Midnight Blue and a Deep Purple. The colour choice of We-Vibe makes me slow clap every time because you know, not every girl want’s a bright pink toy and not every guy want’s a black toy. Thanks We-Vibe for not putting us all in the same box! The Midnight Blue Ditto is, as expected, a deep luxurious blue, not dissimilar to the deep blue of the Pivot, while the Purple is a gorgeous plum shade.

The Ditto was an absolute triumph on We-Vibe’s part, winning and definite YES! from me. I would highly recommend the Ditto to any beginner or intermediate plug user searching for a new plug to try for a wonderful prostate massage.

We-Vibe just keeps hitting home runs and I tell you what, I cannot wait to see what they create in the future.

Review: b-Vibe Novice

b-Vibe Novice Sex Toy Photo

I was very excited to receive some new sex toys from b-Vibe in our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres this week. I reviewed their Rimming Butt Plug when it came in a few weeks ago and was mightily impressed. Their marketing is really sex positive and couple friendly. The company was founded by a lady called Alicia Sinclair who is a sexologist with many years of experience in the field, so she really knows what she is doing. I thought I would review the b-Vibe Novice which is a remote control butt plug. My interest is piqued for several reasons. The remote on the b-Vibe was excellent both in range and connectivity and I wanted to see if this followed through with all their products. I picked up the tester and it was the smoothest silkiest silicone, I ended up just stroking it like a cat. It is also the exact size and shape of a butt plug I often seek out for couples trying anal play for the first time, so I really want this to be good.

The plug which comes in turquoise, cerise, or black is housed in a sturdy cardboard box which could be used for storage. There is a picture of the novice on it, so it isn’t discreet but it is cool stylish, approachable and unashamed about what it is. I quite like this, it reflects what the company seems to be all about. If you don’t want the world and his wife to know you like stuff up your bum, then you are catered for too. Inside the box you will find that the sex toy has its own plastic storage case which looks like one of those corrugated ones spies hand over money in. It is a perfect travel case to house the plug, the remote, the charger and the instruction booklet. There is also enough room to put some water based lubricant and adult toy cleaner inside, should you wish.

The plug itself is 3.5 x 1 inch, small and rounded at the tip. It is gently tapered to the small indented neck and it has a 2 inch flange which as we all know is completely necessary in any anal toy as the human bottom sucks things up just as easily and efficiently as it expels. As I mentioned before the silkiness of the silicone make me almost believe the plug could be used without lube but that is never a good idea when it comes to anal play. This, together with the unintimidating shape and size really do make this a great choice for first timers. Some couples get put off by all the interesting curves and bumps on lots of anal sex toys but this one appeals to newcomer and more experienced people alike.

 

b-Vibe Novice Sex Toy Photo
Sex Toy: b-Vibe Novice – Review

 

The b-Vibe Novice is 100% body safe, phthalate free, easy to clean and it doesn’t seem to attract dust at all. Unfortunately it is only splash proof and not waterproof, this disappoints me a little. Other similar anal sex toys in this category and price range have managed to get round this problem. It charges via a USB cord and for a 2 hour charge you get 1.5 hours of play.

The Novice is small enough to wear around and about if you wanted. The base is small enough that you could probably sit down comfortably without the need for a cushion. This opens up all sorts of fun avenues for couples to make the most of the remote control.

I must admit I had a bit of trouble using the plug the first time. I am apt to dive straight in ignoring the manual. My default press and hold routine didn’t work though and I discovered the sex toy had a travel lock. It is a great feature but not so great for those of us selling the toys. Once it is turned on the fun really begins. The range, power and rumbly quality of the vibrations is very impressive! This is especially true for a toy this small and unassuming. The vibrations spread all through the toy evenly from the motor which is often not the case with toys. You need the remote to increase and decrease the intensity but the 15 patterns can be accessed either remotely or directly from the base of the toy by pressing the button. The remote was just as good to use as the one which came with the Rimming plug. It is one of the best remotes I have ever tested. It worked to a distance of 30 feet. It easily worked through flesh and clothing to. A big round of applause for b-Vibe on that score. I am not a patterns person but with 15 to choose from there is definitely one for everyone. The vibrations, size and shape of this toy mean that you don’t have to limit it to anal play, it is also perfect for clitoral stimulation. Just don’t forget to clean in between chopping and changing orifices.

The b-Vibe Novice definitely gets a big thumbs up from me. I can’t really think of any down sides. If b-Vibe are listening, I say to you as I do to others, in the future maybe put some lights on the remote to indicate what intensity the butt plug is at. The plug is so narrow, there could be a danger of it slipping out if worn during vaginal sex but conversely, its small size means that other toys can be used vaginally at the same time without the discomfort that is sometimes experienced when doing that. So yes b-Vibe have done it again! I eagerly anticipate what else they have to offer.
