You Put What In Your Vagina?

Woman in panties

I love modern technology. More specifically, I love the technology that allows me to search the strange, dark depths of humanity (AKA Google). Human beings manage to do some incredibly bizarre things to their bodies, with their posting about it online giving me an opportunity to amuse myself for hours on end.  Recently, I came across a forum detailing the strangest things women have put in their vaginas! It may seem like an odd subject to research however my curiosity was great and found me on some interesting websites where I read some freaky and crazy stories. I felt this information was too shocking not to share so below is a list of some of the things women have either placed or had placed in their womanly parts:

Popsicles and ice blocks

These people must not be aware that their vaginas are not equipped with taste buds. Sugary sweets like this can seriously mess up the pH balance of the vagina. If you’re ever seeking that cool sensation, I suggest you put a glass dildo in the fridge instead!

I don’t know what kind of hazards they were seeking to avoid but this is just confusing.

Phone and money

A man put these objects in his girlfriend’s vagina after they had sex. Don’t even get me started on how dirty money is let alone the ridiculousness of placing a phone in such a precious body part.

Pork Loin wrapped in condoms

I felt strange reading that one. She really needs to invest in a real feel dildo instead of using a piece of dead pig to get off!! All I can say is, at least she covered it with a condom.


I think this woman needs to get herself a Clone-A-Pussy kit if she really wants to replicate her pussy.

Bottle cap

Now, I’m not sure if this woman was successful at opening a bottle with her vagina or if she just felt she had nowhere else to throw it out. Nonetheless, this is not recommended.

Glow stick

There’s certainly a party in this woman’s pants…

A piece of rusty metal

Has this woman not heard of tetanus?! I really think she needs to come into the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres to pick herself a clean, polished surgical steel dildo if she’s really into this.

What is perfectly health to place in your vagina?

Ok so now you know what isn’t a great idea to put in your vagina, I thought I’d make it crystal clear what is perfectly healthy to place in your precious body part.


Self-pleasuring with your hands or having a lover do it for you is one of the greatest gifts a woman can bestow upon her vagina. Ensuring whoever’s hands come near your genitals are squeaky clean will ensure the experience is memorable for all the right reasons.

Fruits and vegetables

Phallic shaped fruits and veggies are a hit among many women. Bananas, cucumbers, carrots, zucchinis-these are perfectly healthy to have in your vagina, just be sure to place a condom over them before use (Oh and keep the banana skin on).

This one is probably way too obvious as of course this is how children are conceived. Sexual intercourse makes many women’s vaginas feel ecstatic and blissful so feel free to keep this one on the to do list. Just be sure when having penile/vaginal intercourse with someone, it is important to be aware of both parties’ sexual health statuses. Using condoms is great however it does not protect against all sexually transmitted infections.

Sex toys, dildos, dongs, vibrators and more

The variety of different sex toys on the market is ginormous. Ensuring you use high quality sex toys made from materials such as silicone, ABS, glass and steel will ensure your vagina stays healthy and happy. I certainly recommend brands such as The Rabbit Company, Fun Factory, We-Vibe and LELO if you’re after a toy that your vagina will love and appreciate.

Kegel exercisers

To ensure your vagina stays toned and terrific, completing Kegel exercises regularly is highly recommended. Like with sex toys, I certainly recommend only using Kegel balls and exercisers made from high quality silicone or ABS plastic. Kegel exercisers such as Elvie, LELO Luna Beads, Je Joue Ami and We-Vibe Bloom are some amazing products worth investing in.

Ok so this next one is still on the drawing table, with more research needed to ascertain whether it’s a healthy thing to put in one’s vagina.

Metal chain

This is one I’ve only just recently become aware of and I am yet to find out the appeal but it is certainly featuring in my fantasies as of late. A length of ¼ inch link metal chain about 2 feet is placed slowly into the vagina. Think putting it in to create a feeling of fullness and heaviness then pulling it out link by link, almost like you would with anal beads. Some recounts of this make it sound like a mind-blowing experience but like I said, I am yet to know for sure as to whether it is a good idea. So if you’re reading this thinking it sounds like a good idea, best to keep it as a fantasy and do your own research on mastering the art of fingering.

Trending Sex Toy Facts Of Australia!

Australian Sex Toy

Australian’s are an oversexed bunch.

And when it comes to toys of any description they like to spend.  In recent research conducted by Purposit (A Child Gifting App For Parents) it revealed that parents of the nuclear family (2 parents – 2.4 children) on average spend $1000 a month on non-necessary items – mainly being children’s toys.  So it brings to question how much and what do those same parents spend on sex toys for themselves.

So some extensive analysis from the data bases of one of Australia’s largest online sex toy retailer adultsmart reveal a few facts and figures indicating what the most popular sex toys being purchased were, where they were purchased and the biggest spends.  So on a per capita basis (per 1000) state by state for the year of 2017 the *#biggest consumers of sex toys in Australia believe it or not is

WINNER IS – TASMANIA with 4.1 persons (per 1000) purchasing sex toys.

Thereafter in order were Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Adelaide, South Australia, Northern Territory* and Western Australia*.

These are interesting stats but when broken up further statistics as to the best-selling sex toy online it comes down to the humble cock ring.  Across all states this was the most sought after item used to enhance the residents downunder intimate lives.  State by state these were the top three adult products purchased online –

These facts give an insight into the sex lives of the patriotic Ozzie’s and what sex aids they wish to include in their bedroom fun.  However it does not answer the question of how much do people spend?  *#Bearing in mind that these statistics are only gathered from one online sex toy store and they only reflect a small portion of the adult toy sales made online here are the average spend per customer per sale for sex toys state by state –

These days there is no stigma attached to buying, owning or using pleasure objects is accepted in most walks of life.  According to a study conducted by Arizona University more than 90% of men have used a sex toy on themselves or their partner and over 80% of women own a vibrator.  A recent survey on women’s vibrator use found –

  • 17% were under 20 years of age when they initially attempted a vibrator, or sexual toy
  • 50% were in their 20s
  • 22% to 27% were in their 30s
  • 11% were 40 and more

You May BCurious About BSwish!

Sex Toys

My BCurious came to me fully charged, which is an absolutely great feeling when you can take it out of the packaging and use it immediately. When you really need to use a vibrator, and having to wait for a sex toy to charge up can be very annoying. However if you do need to charge the toy, it is very easy to do and to make things even more clear it comes with an instruction manual.   Simply take the small cap off and push the plug in using the usb cord supplied.  When the cord is in and the toy is charging a flicking light will be seen on the controls and when it is fully charged the light will remain on.  The instructions say never leaving it charging for more than 24 hours at a time.

There is a warning on the box to not use the toy in temperatures over 140 degrees Fahrenheit so it will not be suitable for use in the sauna but as it is waterproof would still be great in the shower or bath – just not too hot okay!  Not that you ever would but I guess that also means you do not leave it in your car on a hot summers day.

BSwish Sex Toys

The controls have an oblong face and the controls are clearly defined and easy to use even amidst sexual play.  You can simply scroll up and down the many vibrating setting until you find the one that you want.  When in use I found my thumb to change settings and it is a perfect ergonomic shape when the curved tip is pointing towards your body.  The first control is to power on and off and the other takes you through the different settings and they are very comfortable to use.

When switched on the surround of the controls is illuminated in a blue light so if you drop it during your passion play it will be easy to find under the sheets.  It is a toy that can easily be used for solo play or with your partner.  There are 7 vibration settings which is more than ample for any sex toy user.  The vibrations are strong but not overly so and give a nice deep rumbly experience.

I believe this toy would be perfect for beginners or for those that like a nice sensual and romantic night in.  It is not for those that like powerful sex toys or those that will make them orgasm in a minute.  I like it just the way it is and give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Sex Toys Fit For A Queen!

Luxurious sex toys

When I saw the Jopen Callie display, my immediate thought was that these vibrators are fit for a queen. Sleek, classic and beautiful, they are the epitome of royalty. Now imagining the actual queen of England using a vibrator is quite the challenge and I don’t think I actually want to let my mind go there. Nonetheless, I believe that she would vouch for these vibrators. I also believe that for such an affordable price, the taxpayers would be more than happy to chip in!

The history of the vibrator is an interesting (and hilarious) story that shows how far we have come, not just with the technology of sex toys but also with our awareness and acceptance of female pleasure in society. The first vibrator was created in the late 19th century to be used by medical doctors to treat Victorian women with hysteria (Hysteria itself is worthy of an article…more on that another time!!)-to put it simply, it was used to give exhausted doctors a break from making hysterical women orgasm all day long with their hands!! Vibrators have changed so drastically in a relatively short period of time with the choice of products we have today a far cry from the early day choices. I, along with plenty of other women I’m sure, am tremendously grateful for the modern equivalents of these terrifying looking contraptions. The thought of these going near my nether regions is enough to turn me celibate!!

The Jopen Callie range is made up of an incredible array of sex toys for women, an end result of the tireless effort that has been invested into vibrator technology over the last 100+ years. The best part is you don’t even have to be diagnosed with an outdated mental disorder to get your hands on these products (Or visit a doctor for an orgasm for that matter).

Jopen is a sex toy company based in California, United States of America, with a key emphasis on creating sex toys for women and couples. The company is run by a predominantly female staff and prides itself on having one of the best warranty programs for sex products.

The Callie range includes 4 different styles of vibrators, each made from silky white, premium silicone with a gold base and diamond style button. The vibrators are 100% waterproof making them easy to clean and perfect for those who love to take their toys in the bath or shower. These toys, like the majority of high quality vibrators, are rechargeable with a USB outlet. Simply unscrew the base and plug in. Just be sure that it is correctly screwed on before submerging in water to prevent water damage. The Jopen Callie vibrators come with a one year warranty which as mentioned above, is one of the best warranty programs available.

The vibrations of all products in the Callie range are deep, powerful and extremely pleasurable. For such an affordable toy, I was surprised with the quality of the vibrations. They each come with 7 vibrating functions, with the single diamante button pressed to control these rhythms. There are toys on the market that have a greater variety of vibration patterns and different levels of intensity which for someone who wants a really low vibrating intensity is a downfall. However I believe that for most people the 7 functions should suffice.

All the toys in the Callie range are elegantly packaged in a reusable sturdy box.

The Dual Massager

This toy is a rabbit style vibrator with a long shaft for penetration and a smaller extension for clitoral stimulation. The combination of vaginal thrusting and clitoral stimulation with this vibrator is extremely intense and pleasurable, perfect to be used solo or with a partner. These style of wands can also be safely used as an anal dildo, making them a great choice for those who like to be able to mix it up

The Wand

This straight vibrator features a long and slightly curved shaft that becomes girthier towards the end. This is a perfect vibrator for someone who wants a thick but not huge dildo vibrator. Used with an anal stopper, would also make a great butt toy.

Mini Wand

This vibrator is the smaller equivalent of the wand, a bullet style vibrator that is great for clitoral stimulation. It is a perfect size to be used during sex as it’s not too big that it will get in the way but big enough that it’s easy to handle. Also great for traveling as it is small and discreet looking.

Working In An Adult Lifestyle Centre

Adult Smart Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres Photo

When I tell people I work in an adult store, I am always slightly surprised by their reactions. Usually they look around to see if anyone is listening then begins the barrage of questions in hushed tones.

Oh My God, Wow! You work in a Sex Shop?

What is it like to work there?

Don’t you get tired of all the creepy wierdos?

And once they relax…Do you get to try stuff? That must be cool… I might pop in and see you.

All the newbies come in a little shy and are not sure what to expect and almost with out exception are overwhelmed with how “normal” it all is. Gone are the days of elderly men in raincoats, low lighting and darkened rooms…. I always get comments on how approachable the staff are and almost everyone is overwhelmed with the range of products we have and impressed by how unintimidating the atmosphere of the shop is. Yes, times have certainly changed, thank goodness.

Our job as sales consultants is to make the customer feel as at ease as possible. We try and rid them of unhelpful preconceptions, and basically welcome them into our magical world.

It is great that we have so much choice but to someone who has never been in an adult store before it is really helpful for them to have it all simplified for them. I always think sex is like food, it is not only necessary it can be intensely pleasurable. If you had never tasted chocolate, you simply wouldn’t have a taste for it. It is our job to present the customer with an easy to understand tasting menu of what is really available out there for carnal pleasure. There is nothing more satisfying than introducing customers to ideas and toys they would never have thought existed.

I have had many retail jobs in my time and although I have enjoyed them, I have often thought I was a bit of a money making machine for the company and my primary goal was to sell as much product for them as possible. The reward for me was the satisfaction of the results I achieved while at the same time maintaining customer satisfaction. I have found this job works inversely. My main goal is to satisfy the needs of the customer, the money makes itself. By establishing their needs I can help them discover things that can be truly life changing.

Now this will sound odd, but I have a couple of friends that work as carers or in the medical profession, and I often feel I have much more in common with them than I do with someone who works in a shoe store. We are very privileged to get to know such personal things about people. I may well spend half an hour helping someone who has recently had prostate surgery, by showing them a penis pump, a prostate massager and explaining how cock rings work. I have a regular customer who is 35. He had had a terrible child hood and had never been able to have sex. He now often comes in with friends to extol the virtues of our herbal version of Viagra and our sex drops. He tells me I have genuinely changed his life. It is great fun to show the younger guys what a masturbator is for. I love to see their eyes light up when you explain how a cock ring can make them cum harder and satisfy their partner at the same time. It is satisfying letting customers young and old feel a lube like superslyde when they have only ever improvised with products like baby oil.

The staff here are in a unique position of advising people on the most personal and intimate aspect of their lives. We are lucky enough to have time given to us to learn about everything to do with sex, love and relationships. Take a look around the blog and you would be hard pushed to find a subject not tackled or a toy not reviewed at least once by somebody. With all that knowledge comes responsibility. I have lost count of all the young couple s who come in with expectations that relationships are like the ones you see in 5 minute free porn clips online. Guys often come in with girlfriends wanting anal toys and numbing creams for the girl. How scary would that be for an inexperienced girl? I always try to get to the bottom of the motives. If it is just the guys idea, which it often is, I always try and persuade him to buy a prostate toy for himself too. That way he can experience the wonders of his own male g spot, and at the same time sympathise better with what his girl will be experiencing. For her, the experience becomes a mutual exploration of each other’s bodies. Not just an anal invasion by a boyfriend she feels she has to impress. Instead of a cream to make her feel less of the sensation, why not buy enough some superslyde lubricant or non numbing anal lube from Pjur to help her relax into it.

Some customers are just plain curious to see what secrets lie inside these stores that you have to climb stairs to reach (although our Kogarah store is at street level for wheel chair access) They might even just want to come in and take pictures of the blow up dolls and giant dongs to show their friends.

From a very young age we are conditioned to think of sex as something naughty and taboo. Our kids find anything they are told not to talk about in public completely fascinating…whether it be farts, bums, boobs, poos or SEX. We carry those feelings into old age. It is great fun to watch a customer open up and embrace the world of what we have to offer and start asking the questions that they haven’t felt able to before.

The rewards for what we do are amazing. My favourite story is of a lovely guy who came in and wanted to buy a present for a girl he was trying to woo in Hawaii. They had met in Australia and really got on. She was splitting up from her husband. She had had a mastectomy and felt this was the reason he was leaving her. Mr nice had also split from his wife who had run off leaving him with their 5 children. He was going over to see her In Hawaii and his intentions, although not entirely honourable, were that he wanted her to see herself as the sexy person he thought she was. (lets face it we all like it when someone’s intentions aren’t totally honourable) He was going to buy her some lingerie, but I suggested he bought diamante nipple tassels instead. He was unsure, but bit the bullet and did it anyway. A few weeks later he was back to thank me, she had cried with happiness. She planned to come over and meet his kids. Since then they have maintained a long distance relationship. I was able to suggest getting a We-vibe so they could maintain sexual relations while so far apart ….and the last I heard was that she was going to come live over permanently.

There are numerous other stories too, the guy in his 80’s I sold lube and a stroker too after his wife had passed away and he had moved into an old people’s home. He came back to tell me he couldn’t believe such amazing things existed!

Honestly, some days I leave work feeling like I am saving the world one dildo at a time, well perhaps that is a bit of an exaggeration but it is a great place to work and visit. The shop isn’t full of “creepy wierdos” at all. It is mostly people like you and me who just want to have fun.
