To lubricate or not to lubricate- THAT is the question!
Learn why EVERY woman should include a lubricant in their toy chest. Your vagina is will thank you!

Using a lubricant is not about what you can or cannot produce yourself. It is about protection and that is what is most important. It doesn't matter how wet you get, the walls of your vagina are very delicate membranes and fast, repetitive penetration will tear those membranes. The tears are microscopic, but over time, they will affect the elasticity of one of a woman's most prized posessions- her vagina. So, if you want to stay tighter and stronger for longer, you should ALWAYS use a lube for sex whether it is with a partner or with a toy.

If you use condoms (safety first!), make sure that your chosen lubricant is condom safe and that it is the appropriate type for the kind of sexual play that you will be engaging in. Water based lubricants are safe to use alone, with toys and with most condoms. If back door play is in your future, make sure you choose a lubricant that is made for that, like a Silicon based lubricant.

So, get out there and find your lubricant . Your vagina will thank you for it!!!

It was my first plane ride but I almost hoped the oxygen masks would drop from the ... Read more

To ink or not to ink? The answer to that question will get you many answers! No two are the same, and many will completely contradict the others. If you're looking outside for the answer to whether or not you should mark your body, you will be left with a Vertigo like feeling. I sure was, but that was years ago. I love my ink and each of their ... Read more

Taking the Long Road

Challenges. We all have them. Whether they are work, personal, spiritual, emotional, or physically related. There is not one person alive that can say that they have not faced something in their life that they were not sure that they would defeat. But they do- sometimes not how you imagined it, but you fight your way through it. You learn about your grit. Your ... Read more
