Back to Business

Hey, everyone...I realize it has been a while since I posted anything, but things have just been crazy! I am still working diligently on the book, but time has been a precious commodity what with the holidays and all. So it is back to business as usual, hopefully.

I got to talking with a friend today about a rather interesting subject matter and it really made me stop and think. I'm sure I've covered sex toys at some point in the past, but probably on just a "basic" level. I'd like to share something with all of you naughty divas out there: Dildos are a LOT of fun. As are a lot of other sex toys out there. We are going to start with dildos, and then go from there. I'll be giving you a lot of fresh ideas to try in the coming days.

When it comes to dildos, they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are phallus shaped, while others are not even close. Some are designed for vaginal penetration, some for anal penetration and some are designed for both at the same time (often referred to as the shocker effect). Dildos and other sexual items are also known to be used not only for masturbation but also for other sexual activities.

Surprisingly, dildos have been around for centuries. Hard to believe? Check out some of these fun facts:

Dildos in one form or another have been present in society throughout history. Artifacts from the Upper Paleolithic which have previously been described as batons were most likely used for sexual purposes.

There have been many references to dildos in the historical and ethnographic literature. Haberlandt, for example, illustrates single and double-ended wooden dildos from late 19th century Zanzibar.

The world's oldest known dildo is a siltstone 20-centimeter phallus from the Upper Palaeolithic period 30,000 years ago that was found in Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm Germany.

Findings of the archaeologists show that ancient Egyptians used dildos 2,500 years ago.

Also these sex toys were used by ancient Greeks. A vase with a woman using a dildo depicted on it was found. This vase was made in the fifth century B.C. Another ancient Greek vase of about the 6th century B.C. depicts a scene in which a woman bends over to perform oral sex on a man, while another man is about to thrust a dildo into her anus.

The first dildos were made of stone, tar, wood and other materials that could be shaped as penises and that were firm enough to be used as penetrative sex toys.

Chinese women in the 15th century used dildos made of lacquered wood with textured surfaces. Geishas sound familiar?

With the invention of modern materials there appeared the possibility of making dildos of different shapes, sizes, colors and textures. In 1966 Ted Marche pioneered the manufacturing and distributing of rubber dildos and other sex toys, thus introducing the dildo that most of today's society is familiar with.

Point being, dildos have been around for centuries for a reason...they can be extremely enjoyable. And with modern times comes a little device I like to call a "little slice of heavenly naughtiness"...the vibrator. Seriously people, if you haven't tried a vibrator yet, this is a must do. But only if you are completely capable of attaining an orgasam through self pleasure. If you start to rely on a vibrator to get you there, it can be hard for you to attain orgasm without it.

These days they make vibrators that can fit in your purse, but they also make them large enough to pleasure almost any woman. They come in silicone, glass, metal and myriad other materials. And they are fun for use with your partner, not just for you to use by yourself. You would be surprised at how open (and thrilled) your partner will be to trying something new! It is how you keep the flame hot and burning steadily.
