SheBop, a "female friendly sex toy boutique," in Portland, Ore., has a great blog where they post comprehensive guides, among other things, on less-often addressed sex and sex-toy issues like the sex toy cleaning guide, Lube 101, how to use a cock ring, and the lowdown on Kegel exercises. Probably NSFW.

No, you are right. Cock rings are a kinda special occasion thing for me. Call me an old fashioned romantic.

I haven't read the links, but my Uncle Revis tells me you can't have a good cock fight without a proper cock ring.

We have the largest selection of new and used cock rings in the tri-state area.

"Most solid cock rings are measured by their interior diameters, so you’ll need to take your circumference and divide it by 3.14 to find the right diameter for you. For example, a circumference of 5.5″ will call for a cock ring with an interior diameter of 1.75″


I love pi.

Solid? Ha! Everyone knows the good ones are made of a Bose-Einstein Condensate.

I saw a place just outside on Western, a place that sells 'used erotica'. Think about it... do they clean it? Who cleans it? Are they licensed? All these questions came to my head... how used is it? Who used it? You follow me...

That sounds... chilly.

Now I know how I'm going to cope with this heat wave.

When not using them, I like to keep my dildos in a beaker of Barbicide.

uh, I'm as keen on women-positive sex shops as the next fella, but this post seems to be not much more than promoting a storefront.

I think this is a good resource. I consider myself fairly well informed, but I totally could have used the info that glycerin is evil a long time ago.

Thanks!

I'd imagine you could find similar local places by google up the individual products listed here, presumably all the little upscale places find their wares through the same channels. I've seen the exact same products in a little place on Calle de la Palma near Tribunal in Madrid

You know, there are all those empty Borders stores going for cheap now. Doesn't that present a unique opportunity to launch another big box chain dedicated to sex toys? You'll require a special caliber of stop-loss employees of course.

She Bop is an absolutely terrific establishment with perfectly nuanced salesfolk, but I still say that "Now carrying locally-made porcelain dildos" sounds like a Portlandia bit.

I work at a shop like this and the cleaning page needs to be a followed up with a mandatory multiple choice test. My god, the things people tell me they clean their toys with! I think the winner was the guy who was hitting his latex toys with nappy solution and wondering why a) his lady-friends didn't want to play no more; and b) they disintegrated after a handful of uses.

"You'll require a special caliber of stop-loss employees"

Are you suggesting cavity search specialists, or avoiding them entirely by hiring based on the diameter of item the candidate can, uh, chamber?

how to use a cock ring,

The only cock ring I ever owned I owned I got from a vending machine in a diner men's room. I never used it, but having it on the mantlepiece was a good conversation starter. At nude beaches, I've seen dudes who wore big silver rings around the whole cok-and-balls rig, but that's not quite the same.

I think with cock rings you can only go one of two ways: Either you get one designed by a Swiss dude with a bulging forehead and a double PHD in in semiotics and obscure materials science that has been hand cast from pieces of the Tuguska meteor by blind Tibetan soul ninjas or you get it out of a vending machine in the bathroom of a diner, either way you've encircled your dong in something special. Well played, Jon lad, well played.
