In the early 1590s, the English playwright Thomas Nashe wrote a poem known as The Choice of Valentines, Nashe's Dildo or The Merrie Ballad of Nashe his Dildo. This was not printed at the time, due to its obscenity but it was still widely circulated and made Nashe's name notorious. The poem describes a visit to a brothel by a man called "Tomalin"; he is searching for his sweetheart, Francis, who has become a prostitute. The only way he can see her is to hire her. However, she resorts to using a glass dildo as he finds himself unable to perform sexually to her satisfaction.

Some people believe that sex toys are for masturbation purposes only, which is actually just a huge misconception. There are plenty of toys out there that can stimulate both partners at once, or that one partner can use on another. Whether you want to tie down and tease your lover or you both want to experience the pleasurable vibrations of a couple’s vibrator, sex toys that you can share will make experimenting in the bedroom even more fun for both of you. And if you’re not sure where to start, then you should begin your search right here at Spencer’s. We should know, because we’ve got plenty of sex toys and accessories for couples! Rubber Penis
If your partner has a penis, this aptly-named "Clone-A-Willy" lets you create a silicone mold of it — one that vibrates. Ideal for couples in long-distance relationships, the toy comes in a variety of skin tones, so you can get as realistic as you'd like. (You also have the option to make it neon pink and glow-in-the-dark, which…yes.) If creating a penis clone sounds daunting, fear not: According to customer reviews, the Clone-A-Willy comes with detailed and easy to follow instructions. Silver Bullet Vibrators
This is another material that is becoming more popular in recent years. Glass offers the smoothest surface out of any material used, but that is only one benefit. They can be created in all shapes and colors, and because many are hand blown, they are more like a piece of art than a dildo. They tend to be more expensive due to this, and they can last a lifetime.
Once again, for the cheap seats in the back: Most women can’t come from penetration alone. It’s not you; it’s just anatomy. But if you press this vibrator against your partner’s clit during penetrative sex, she’ll get off every time. The long handle provides perfect reach, so it’s easy to hold in any position, and the wand also warms up, kind of like an electric blanket (one that won't remind you of your grandma). Toys For Bdsm
By the 1980s, purges of the police force along with new and tighter licensing controls by the City of Westminster led to a crackdown on illegal premises in Soho. In the early 1990s, London's Hackney council sought to shut down Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium, because they did not have a licence. Sh! took the council to court and consequently won the right to remain open as there were no sufficient reasons for the closure. In 2003 the Ann Summers chain of lingerie and sex toy shops won the right to advertise for shop assistants in Job Centres, which was originally banned under restrictions on what advertising could be carried out by the sex industry. In 2007, a Northern Ireland sex shop was denied a licence by the Belfast City Council. The shop appealed and won, but this was overturned by the House of Lords. Sexshop
