KEGEL WEEK: “Fifty Shades of Grey” Spikes Sales of LELO’s Luna Beads

  “Trust me?” he asks softly. I nod. He holds out his hand, and in his palm are two round, shiny, silver balls, linked with a thick black thread. “These are new,” he says emphatically. I look questioningly up at him. “I am going to put these inside of you, and then I’m going to […]

When it comes to sex toys, men get the short end of the stick. Besides butt plugs (a.k.a. the short end of the stick, ba dum ching!), there’s just not that many innovative options — a few massage sleeves, a couple of love rings, and some blow-up dolls (and, if you ask us, blow up dolls are not really […]
