[caption id="attachment_7331" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="See, a flared base!"]The flared base Silk dildo[/caption]A new article in Scientific American says that over an eleven year period nearly 7,000 people showed up in the hospital with a vibrator or dildo stuck in an orifice . We're guessing they didn't get good advice about how to use their toy, or maybe they're all just willful rule breakers who chose to ignore the voice of reason. Don't be one of them. Just follow these simple guidelines to keep your playtime in the bedroom and out of the ER.Rule #1 -- Flared bases reduce the risk of an embarrassing ER visit by, like, 1000%. Anything that goes in the butt should have a flared base, guaranteeing easy removal and to keep it from going places no man or woman or piece of silicone has gone before.� And don't forget the lube! Anything that goes in the butt should be nice and slippery, too.Rule #2 -- No phthalates . Study results vary on the possible harm, but why take a risk? We'll permit you to put a condom over your favorite toy if it does contain phthalates, but when you replace it, no more excuses. All of Babeland's products are phthalate-free. It's easy to shop when you don't have to read the fine print for the ingredients.Rule #3 -- Know what's in your lube. Parabens? Glycerin? Trans fats? (Not really, as far as we know.) Check out our handy buying guide. Rule #4 -- Choose cock rings that come off easily . Beginners can start with adjustable rings. Look for snaps, velcro, or super-stretch rings. Don't keep it in place for more than twenty minutes until you get used to it and know what is happening. Do it right and it won't turn black and fall off.Rule #5 -- Laugh. Most sex emergencies aren't the kind that require a doctor's assistance. It's more often a feeling of embarrassment, self-censorship or shame. Was I too loud? Did my body really make that noise? Did I look sexy when I came? It's the stuff that keeps us from letting go and experiencing that soul-shaking pleasure that is our right and our destiny. So let it go already, laugh it off.� (And if there is a toy stuck in a place where the sun don't shine, calm down and relax, chances are you can push it out.)So tell us, have you learned any lessons the hard way?
