Woah, that was fast! 2015 seems to have flown by before our eyes and 2016 has begun, bringing what I’m sure will be a good time. But before we get too excited about what’s to come, we’d like to take the time to highlight some of our favorites from the past year.
First on our list is the We Vibe Touch, which both staff and customers laud for its soft silicone feel and deep rumbly vibration. The rechargeable, waterproof toy can’t seem to stay on our shelves; we’re just happy to have sent a bunch of folks on their way with something that’s sure to become a favorite.
Sportsheets’ Under the Bed Restraint System, has been popular throughout the year. We’ve found that people really like they system because it doesn’t require a specific type of bed frame and can be left under the mattress without the cuffs detached for a convenient, yet discreet, setup.
For yet another year, Sliquid Sassy water-based lube has been a bestseller. Frequently recommended for anal play, this all-natural gel lubricant works well for any type of penetration without getting sticky.
Also by Sliquid, Oceanics has found a place in the hearts (and in the bedside drawers) of many of our frequent visitors. Its all-natural formula includes seaweed extracts meant to heal and support the body’s natural processes. A frequent recommendation for an everyday driver, it has become the lube that people come back in looking for because it has been exactly what they had been looking for.
Along with the favorites that have been around for a little while now, we have also debuted a number of new products this year that have taken off.
The Ooh line from JeJoue has an innovative edge over a lot of things we’ve seen recently. At the root of the Ooh is an independent motor which can be inserted in any combination of internal vibe, exernal vibe, or C-ring. People have remarked on the customizability of the sets and how one kit can be used for different uses at different times. The kits are named after the cities London, Rio de Janeiro, and Las Vegas.
Also from JeJoue, the Nuo and Dua are both sleek dual-stimulation toys; the Nuo is anal/prostate focused and the Dua is vagina/G-spot focused. What a lot of folks like is the unique and discreet pen-shaped remote and the app compatibility, allowing couples (particularly those in long distance relationships) to control vibration for a partner.
The Tantus Uncut #1 brought to us a realistic option for a frequently over-looked category of dildos: those that are uncircumcised. Folks have enjoyed the realistic textures and been happy to see an uncut option amongst the sea of cut dildos.
Finally, our new packers from Fleshlight, Pleasure Works, and New York Toy Collective have broadened our selection for the Gender Expression section of the store. Along with Number 1 Lab’s Model D Sport STP, these packers have given many an accessible way to feel comfortable in their gender expression.
We look forward to what’s to come in 2016, including lots of new options with something for every body. Thanks for reading and have a happy New Year!
