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.

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!

Callie Vibrating Mini Massager Photo

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 are incredible sex toys, 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 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.

Mini Massager

This toy is a slightly long tear drop shaped small vibe with a cord attached to the control. The cord measures approximately 60cm’s making it perfect to be controlled by you or your partner whilst being used.

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.

In 1994, Adult Smart originally operated the very first adult lifestyle centre in South Africa named “Adult World” which opened after sex toys were made legal to be used by Nelson Mandela. During their first opening day they had all types of people who lined up through the night just to step into the store from people who had no shoes on, people who arrived in horse and carriage to limousine drivers. Everyone from different economic backgrounds wanted to buy a sex toy or sexual health product. Adult World had a total of 67 stores including 52 in South Africa and 15 in Australia. They branched out by creating a new company within Australia named “Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres”  and the online adult lifestyle store that you know as Adult Smart.

Our most loved sex toy brands include Lelo, We-Vibe, Novel Creations NU Sensuelle Range, Fleshlight, Tantus, SuperSlyde and Doc Johnson. Adult Smart also owns BDSM brand Hells Couture which sells high quality leather BDSM items and surgical steel sex toys. They also own brand named “Odeco” that offers affordable sex toys that have the same silky, smooth, silicone feeling of any high end sex toy like Lelo. Adult Smart is one of the only four companies to sell L’Amourose sex toys that feature warming technology that have a stunning prism like design. You can find products from as little as $3.50 to as high as $1500 in Adult Smart Online.

High end sex toys have currently progressed to recharge through magnetic connections which offers a seamless and waterproof design. You can find sex toys made from high quality silicone that resemble the softness or real skin but can come in any thinkable colour. There are sex toys with up to 7 vibrating motors that can change their curve according to what you have programmed them to do. You can operate a We-Vibe with your long distance lover who is over in a completely different country to you as they use their mobile application to control the vibrations whilst you speak on the phone to them. There are sex toys that warm up, sex toys that move in a pulsating motion so you don’t have to buy a complete sex machine, there are prostate massagers and male masturbators that use medical technology to offer your hands free orgasms. There are also sex toys that offer oral sex sensations for women.

Why I Love Working at Oh! Zone

Friendship Community Happiness

Nearly every day I am asked by one or more customers:

“What’s it like working in an adult shop?”

So I thought I’d give you all a small insight of my experience working at an Oh! Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre. I’ve only been working here for a few months so maybe sometime in the future I’ll give you an update. Please keep in mind though that the experience is different for everyone and this is just one person’s perspective. So I’m going to go all the way back to the beginning. I’m 22 years old and had never worked in any industry that even came close to what it’s like to work in an Adult Sex Toy Shop. I previously worked with both animals and babies. These jobs are at the opposite end of the spectrum.

At first I must admit, when I stepped into a sex shop it was a little overwhelming. I had only ever tried two sex toys in my entire life. They were a straight vibrator and a double ended dong. I think I had been to an adult shop maybe once or twice before. I went to the Sexpo once when I was 18. I knew little to nothing about most of the products on the shelves. There were so many sex toys that I had no idea existed. There were BDSM products which I couldn’t figure out how they could possibly pleasure someone or where they even went.

“4 cuffs and collar? What?? How does that work? Silicone lubricant and water based lubricant? Huh? What’s the difference? Glass dildos? OUCH! Wouldn’t that hurt?”

Now that I look back on it, I laugh at myself for being so naive and clueless. Four months later and I have three draws full of different sex products at home that I can’t get enough of. This is by far the most interesting job I’ve ever had and I absolutely love it! From learning about different fetishes, seeing the newest advanced toys on the market, learning about how some toys actually help with common health issues, having people walk through the shop and open up to you about things they wouldn’t even talk to their closest friends or even their partner about. Just seeing the smile on their faces when they walk out the door.. I can’t even explain how great of a feeling that is.

Sex Toy: Lelo Ina 2

 

When a customer walks into the store I can instantly tell if it’s their first time in an adult shop because they usually pull the same faces I did on my first day working here. Making customers feel as comfortable as possible is my aim, no one wants to watch a customer walk out of the store looking more uncomfortable than they did when they first walked in. What’s even more important is asking the right questions and having them walk out with the best possible product that will work for them and their personal preferences. For example, if a woman was to walk in and tell me she’s never had an orgasm before. She also likes to have her g-spot and clitoris stimulated at the same time. I’d show her a few of the rabbit vibrators from my favourite brands including Lelo, Fun Factory and L’amourose.  The reason I will show her these 3 brands is because they are my personal favorites. I own sex toys from all three of these brands and they are the ones sitting at the front of my draw ready to go when I need. I would also show her the more affordable products we have on the wall. I’ll show her the difference between a battery operated and a rechargeable toy.

I’ve given you this as an example because this is actually my favorite sales experience since working here. I ended up selling the woman a Lelo Ina 2 with water based lubricant and toy cleaner. Two weeks later she came back in and thanked me for selling her a product that gave her, her first ever g-spot orgasm experience. It’s an amazing feeling to have helped a customer. Having customers come back or even just call up to give us their feedback is great. They’ve gone to the effort to tell us how happy they are with their product, that we’ve suggested to them. How could that not put a huge smile on your face?

Working in an adult shop is an experience a lot of people probably wouldn’t ever consider but I promise you it’s an unforgettable one! There’s always cool new toys to check out and the different information that’s out there about our bodies, toys, lubricants and sprays. The product’s are endless! I hope you’ve all enjoyed this small read and have at least a tiny idea of how fun it is to work in an adult shop.
