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. Glass Sex Toys
The etymology of the word dildo is unclear. The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) describes the word as being of "origin unknown". One theory is that it originally referred to the phallus-shaped peg used to lock an oar in position on a dory (small boat). It would be inserted into a hole on the side of the boat, and is very similar in shape to the modern toy. The sex toy might take its name from this sailing tool, which also lends its name to the town of Dildo and the nearby Dildo Island in Newfoundland, Canada. Others suggest the word is a corruption of Italian diletto "delight".
Shin Takagi, founder of the company Trottla, manufactures lifelike child sex dolls in the belief that doing so provides a safe and legal outlet for men expressing pedophilic desires. This has been disputed by paraphilia researcher Dr. Peter J. Fagan, who argues that contact with the products would likely have a reinforcing effect, increasing the risk of pedophilic action being taken. Since 2013, Australian officials have confiscated imported shipments of juvenile sex dolls legally classified as child exploitation material.

Cock rings can be used to restrict blood flow in the penis to create a larger, harder and longer-lasting erection. We like the Sexooxx Cock Ring Set for its simplicity. The stretchy silicone material is easy to slide on and off. The Sexooxx Cock Ring Set come with three rings of varying sizes so you can explore the most comfortable fit, and even wear them in combinations. Sex Toy Clearance
After Nelson Mandela backed the anti-discrimination law that legalised sex toys, "Adult World" was established in 1994 as South Africa's first sex shop. Adult World came to operate a total of 52 shops within South Africa and 15 shops in Australia. Many religious Christian communities believed that the use of these adult lifestyle centres would lead to higher crime rates and attempted to organise mass demonstrations at their opening to force the closure of Adult World.

Okay, so this isn’t exactly an adult toy in the technical sense, but lube is an essential adult toy accessory. Lubricant is the WD-40 of sex, easing unwanted friction where there are a lot of moving parts. K-Y Jelly is easily the most recognized lubricant on the market, and we particularly like K-Y Warming Jelly for its innovative ability to trigger a heating sensation in addition to greasing those moving parts (and all your new toys).
