Mel B may be best known as one of the Spice Girls, but she also has a range of business interests, the latest being her own line of sex toys. Scary Spice is said to be developing her very own line of sex toys for UK women after she found that those currently available do not measure up to their American counterparts.
The Sun on Sunday newspaper was reportedly told by a source close to the star: “Melanie has had lots of chats with British ladies who have been bemoaning the range of sex toys. One asked here about a vibrator that looks like a lipstick but you can’t get it in the UK and they don’t ship them over here – it’s very frustrating!” Mel has already done intensive research into what’s available and has made some headway with regards to design. At present, it is very daunting for many women (and men) to buy their first sex toy as they simply don’t know what to look for. Until Mel’s range is available, a few basic tips will help make the decision-making process a lot easier.
Battery Operated vs Rechargeable
The world has come a long way since all sex toys were manually-operated. Today there is a large variety of toys on the market that allows you to, for the most part, just sit back and enjoy the experience. While some toys require you to change the batteries from time to time, others are 100% rechargeable. While both are convenient, the latter is definitely more environmentally friendly. Women can expect to have an orgasmic time when using battery-operated vibrators and bullets while the guys have their own range of rechargeable sex toys to choose from including fleshlights and prostate massagers. It ultimately boils down to personal choice when it comes to choosing between rechargeable and battery operated toys although you may want to weight up the pros and cons of each individual toy.
Safe vs Unsafe Material
When using a sex toy the very last thing you want is to have an adverse reaction to it. Unfortunately, the sex toy industry is not regulated which makes it very possible for sub-standard items to make it into your bedroom. When you are considering buying a sex toy, always ensure that it is made from 100% medical grade silicone, finished wood (you really don’t want to encounter any splinters), ceramic, and metal. Always try to buy toys produced by reputable manufacturers because, even if these products may cost more than cheap imports, you can be guaranteed that they are safe to use. With the world moving more towards sustainability and eco-friendliness you can even consider choosing to invest in completely biodegradable vibrators such as the Gaia and even buy an eco-friendly solar-powered bullet.
Solo play vs Partner play
Before setting out to buy a sex toy you need to establish what you will be using it for. Are you looking for some solo pleasure or do you want to spice up your sex life with your partner? There have always been a plethora of toys on the market that can be used solo although many, such as vibrators and prostate stimulators can also be used when with your partner. It was recently announced by industry leaders that the world is currently in the golden age of sex couple toys which means that there is literally a toy to satisfy every possible need. There are even offerings from brands such as OhMiBod that pairs a range of vibrators with an app for remote use via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
There really are countless sex toy options available. You may, however, be required to do some homework before parting with any money to ensure your every need is met.
