carry over 12,000 items. This last month has been a busy one for us. We have
revamped our photos, reorganized our categories, created new tools to better

We feel fortunate that Jeff has accepted the position. Jeff has many years
experience in managing customer service call centers, he is fun to talk with,
knowledgeable about our products, and is there for you if you have any

Jeff a call, it would be his pleasure to educate you on our products. We get all

Happy August, With the
heat of the summer upon us, don't let sensitive skin ruin your plans for your
favorite summertime fun. Some water based lubricants contain glycerin. Glycerin
is a derivative of sugar.
For people with sensitive skin, glycerin can cause
rashes, itching, and even burning sensations. Some women are more prone to
yeast infections than others. Water based lubes that contain glycerin can in
some cases be the cause, and in others just make matters worse. In men,
urethral irritations and skin irritations can also be caused from glycerin. If
you are experiencing these types of irritations, it could be caused by your
lube. If your water based Lube is more than six months old, toss it! Women
should try Liquid Silk and men should try silicone based products like Pjur
Eros, wet platinum, or System Jo. These will make your summer fun again.

This History of February 14th, Valentine's Day.
In the city of Rome in the years around 270AD there lived an Emperor named
Claudius. He is known in history as Claudius the Cruel.
Near his palace was a beautiful temple where the priest Valentine served. The
Romans loved him dearly and assembled in the temple to hear his words. Before
the fire that always burned on the altar they knelt to ask his blessing. Rich
and poor, wise and ignorant, old and young, noble and common people they all
flocked to Valentine.
Wars broke out in the Roman Empire. Claudius summoned the citizens forth to
battle and year after year the fighting continued. Many of the Romans were
unwilling to go. The married men did not want to leave their families. The
younger men did not wish to leave their sweethearts. The Emperor was angry when
soldiers were too few. He ordered that no marriages should be celebrated and
that all engagements must be broken off immediately.
Now the good priest Valentine heard of the Emperor's command and was very sad.
When a young couple came to the temple, he secretly united them in marriage in
front of the sacred altar. Another pair sought his aid and in secret he wedded
them. Others came and quietly were married. Valentine was the friend of lovers
in every district of Rome.
But, such secrets could not be kept for long in Rome. At last word of
Valentine's acts reached the palace and Claudius the Cruel was angry,
exceedingly angry. He summoned his soldiers. "Go! Take that priest in the
temple! Cast him into a dungeon! No man in Rome, priest or not, shall disobey my
Valentine was dragged from the temple, away from the altar where a young maiden
and a Roman youth stood, ready to be married, and the soldiers took him off to
Many asked Claudius to release Valentine but Claudius refused to do so, and in a
dungeon Valentine languished and died. His devoted friends buried him in the
church of St. Praxedes. When you go to Rome you can see the very place. It was
the year 270AD, on the 14th of February.

Because January 1 is the first day of the New Year, we have drawn a connection
between what we do on that day and our fate throughout the rest of the year.
Here are some of the ways we attempt to ensure a good outcome through our acts
on that portentous first day: Love: We kiss those dearest to us at midnight not
only to share a moment of celebration with others, but also to ensure that those
affections and ties will continue throughout the next twelve months. To smooch
with our significant other at that time would help to set the stage for a year
of happiness. Work: Make sure to do, and be successful at, something related to
your work on the first day of the year, even if you don't go near your place of
employment that day. Limit your activity to a token amount, though, because to
engage in a serious work project on that day is very unlucky.

Happy July. With the summer season upon us, take time to stock up on your
condoms and lubricants because you're going to need it. This is going to be a
HOT summer. Also, please remember to always check the expiration dates of all
your products to ensure the best results. If you get proteins on your lube
bottle or toys, and don't properly clean them, they can grow bacteria and can
cause all kinds of problems including yeast infections. Keep your products clean
and throw away expired product! Summer has always been considered to be the most
romantic of the four seasons. The clear skies, the blazing sun, the gentle
summer breeze, and the lazy afternoons flavor the season with passion and warm
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So ling lives this, and this gives life to thee.

For Adults, Halloween is a time of role play, mystery, and passion. Pick a costume that is sure to awaken the sexual energy and desires in your partner. While your out celebrating with friends and family, take a moment to sneak a whisper into your lovers ear about what is in store for them later. Push your fear aside and be true to yourself. Take time to listen to your deepest and darkest desires, or they just may haunt you! Make the most of this Halloween! Have a safe and wonderful night!
Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter. To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other's fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter. By A.D. 43, Romans had conquered the majority of Celtic territory. In the course of the four hundred years that they ruled the Celtic lands, two festivals of Roman origin were combined with the traditional Celtic celebration of Samhain. The first was Feralia, a day in late October when the Romans traditionally commemorated the passing of the dead. The second was a day to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. The symbol of Pomona is the apple and the incorporation of this celebration into Samhain probably explains the tradition of "bobbing" for apples that is practiced today on Halloween.
By the 800s, the influence of Christianity had spread into Celtic lands. In the seventh century, Pope Boniface IV designated November 1 All Saints' Day, a time to honor saints and martyrs. It is widely believed today that the pope was attempting to replace the Celtic festival of the dead with a related, but church-sanctioned holiday. The celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints' Day) and the night before it, the night of Samhain, began to be called All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween. Even later, in A.D. 1000, the church would make November 2 All Souls' Day, a day to honor the dead. It was celebrated similarly to Samhain, with big bonfires, parades, and dressing up in costumes as saints, angels, and devils. Together, the three celebrations, the eve of All Saints', All Saints', and All Souls', were called Hallowmas.

Lubricants and oils aren't just for partner sex. Slicking up solo sex is one of the most common uses for lubricants, oils and lotions. Using lube during masturbation is safe, sensual and practical: you want your sex toys to slip and slide as much as possible. Just remember to make sure you're using a type of lube that's compatible with the toy you're using -- you don't want to damage yourself or your toys!
While an abundance of lubes are available in different colors, textures and flavors, lubricants come in four basic forms, and are intended for internal and external application to the vulva (vagina, clitoris, labia), anus, penis and testicles, as well as all over body massage.
Made from petroleum jelly, mineral oil or petrolatum, petroleum-based lubes are the most commonly used type of lubrication. Different types include Vaseline products and baby oil. As petroleum-based lubes destroy latex -- practically on contact -- they should never be used with condoms, diaphragms or cervical caps. Petroleum-based lubes stain fabric and can be difficult to wash out. Also, petroleum-based lubes tend to irritate the vagina, so they're not really the best option for women wanting to enjoy vaginal penetration. Petroleum-based lubes are great, however, for male masturbation and anal play.
Water-based lubricants typically contain de-ionized water, glycerin, propylene glycol and nontoxic preservatives. Although available in both flavored and unflavored mixtures, most unflavored lubes still taste slightly sweet. Water-based lubes do not stain, are safe for use with latex and all other barrier birth control methods, and rarely cause irritation. While they often dry out during extended sex, water-based lubes are quickly revived with a spritz of water or a dollop of saliva. Because of their versatility and effectiveness, water-based lubes are recommended most often by sex therapists and experienced couples.
Silicone-based lubricants are similar to water-based lubes with one notable difference: because they are silicone based, they are completely waterproof, making them ideal for underwater use. They also retain their lubricating properties better and longer than water-based lubricants, and are highly concentrated -- so a little goes a long way! Silicone will not harm latex as oil-based lubricants will do; however, silicone-based lubricants can harm sex toys made from silicone, so use a different lube when using your more expensive toys.
Usually made from natural products, such as vegetable oils and nut oils, oil-based lubes tend to stain fabrics and can be difficult to wash off, but they are safe for use with the vagina. Oil-based lubes also destroy latex, so, like petroleum-based lubes, they should never be used with condoms, diaphragms or cervical caps. Oil-based lubricants are great for anal sex, vaginal intercourse, and male and female masturbation.
Whether you decide to try petroleum-, oil-, water- or silicone-based lubricants, remember the various restrictions that go along with each. Try a few different kinds with your lover so the two of you can experiment with different flavors, consistencies and textures. If you don't find a lube you like right away, don't panic: there are about a zillion different kinds out there. Go to our Lubrication category and you will find the Lubes broken down by type.
