tipstricksThanks, Violet Blue, for the kudos about our new downloadable sex toy care and feeding tip sheet. I had no idea that we had done this until I read it on Tiny Nibbles! Actually, there are quite a few tip sheets to download on everything from cock-rings to anal sex. I always recommend reading a book, but if you don't have time to do that, these tipsheets give you the basics.Violet (rightly so) is most happy about the sex toy care and feeding tip sheet. Although we try to tell our customers everything they'll need to know about taking care of their sex toy when they buy it, I'm sure that all of that information can be hard to remember. So, we give them this tip sheet to take home. Tips include:
  • Take the batteries out of any vibrator when you're not using it. This does three things:
    • Protects the toy from the batteries should they corrode
    • Keeps the batteries from running down if the toy gets turned on
    • Prolongs the life of the toy by not running the motor when you're not using it
  • For toys with small batteries, like watch batteries, keep a plastic bag with a zip top. When you're not using the toy, toss the toy and the batteries in to the bag - now everything is there together when you're ready to go again.
  • Handle cords gently: Sex Toys are no different from any other electronic gadget - they have weak spots. Toys with cords can fray or lose connection when the cords are yanked on too much
  • Boil any 100% silicone toy to fully clean and disinfect it. Just 5 minutes in your favorite pot on the stove should do the trick.
Another great tip that I don't think made it on to this tip sheet concerns silicone toys with insertable vibrators like the Pro-Touch or the Rock Chick. When you get a toy like this, put a little bit of lube on the vibrator before you put it into the sex toy so that the vibrator is much easier to get out. When you're not using the toy, store the vibrator seperately (again, the plastic bag is a great tool) so that you can get to the batteries easily should you need to change them.For other great hints on prolonging the life of your sex toy as well as cleaning it, download our tip sheet.
