6 Most Popular Sex Toys in San Francisco
Roses are Red
Violets are blue
I’d prefer a dozen vibrators,
Wouldn’t you, too?
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The holiday that everyone loves to hate, or loves to love, or wishes they had someone to love. Me, personally? I am fully Team Valentine’s Day. Despite being single I get down on V Day and take myself out for a fine time on the town. My usual date includes getting my nails done, a new book, dinner for one wherever I want, then going home to a fine bottle of champagne that I have no intention of sharing and an amazing sex toy that I may or may not share one day. Let me tell you, since adopting this strategy I have yet to have a bummer Valentine’s Day. I asked the vibrator experts, Good Vibrations, what their, most popular, best selling treats in San Francisco were, and here they are:
Oooh lordy lordy! The Womanizer might truly have the power to be every woman’s favorite new partner: it’s sleek, stylish, and gets the job done like woah. This fantastic little invention takes the term “you suck” and flips the entire script. Instead of your traditional vibrators that, well, vibrate, this one is specially designed with a sucker whose sole purpose is to give you ladies the blow job you deserve. To make a good thing even better? It has tons of cute styles with a gem on-off switch, six different settings, two attachments and is rechargeable. This little powerhouse will rock you seven ways to Sunday, and it will never get sassy with you. Boom.
Now, I have quite a bit of personal experience with this delightful product- it’s basically one of the first pieces you get when you begin building up your sex toy arsenal. Classic and effective as eff, the only real downside of this product is that it needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet to work- and we all know, sometimes you are getting down in places without those modern amenities. Now, get ready folks, because THE FUTURE IS NOW! The Magic Wand is now equipped with a three hour long rechargeable battery, quieter vibration sound, and a grip of exciting settings. So now you can have your fun wherever you want!
I can’t speak for every woman, but I am going to say this for myself, there are two presents that I will rarely say no to: jewelry and getting off. Somehow the folks at Vesper crawled into my mind, pulled out this information and crafted what is the classiest looking vibrator pendant I have ever seen. Basically the Vesper is the ultimate daytime/nighttime look for a vibrator. Its sleek design comes in 24k gold, silver, and rose gold (which is the one I want- hint, hint) allows you to wear it anywhere without raising eyebrows. However, should you wish to be Super Woman and flash your magic powers, this pendants turns into a take no prisoners vibrator that has three speeds and is both waterproof and rechargeable.
Lo and behold, the Tenga Flip Hole is the best selling toy for men and it came in first place with every guy I asked. Why? Well, according to the dudes, the toy’s deeply textured elastomer sleeve with ridges makes sure that every part of you gets the attention it so damn-well deserves, and its pressure and intensity is controlled by you. Bonus points, its flip-open capability makes it easy to clean and it has three settings for you to choose from: Mild, Wild, or Real Ride!
Strap-on sex is two thumbs up in my book. However, my experience with harnesses has always left me somewhat wanting in the aesthetic department- If you’re a fancy lady, checkout the sexy, lacy Sasha Couture Harness. This harness is elegantly couture-inspired but also practical for some down and dirty getting it on. The harness morphs from being booty shorts to high cut panties with the help of two side ribbon, detachable garters, and sexy accents make it look incredible. And, it’s two vibration settings make it perfect to stoke out people on the giving and receiving ends.
The Plus 2 Duo received enthusiastic reviews and commentary from guys across the board. This is an updated model of the successful, and sexy, Pulse II Solo and making it better. How? These folks took the classic slip-on design of the Solo, with all of it its magical buzzes and pulses, and made the exterior vibrator, so you can rub up on your boo and get them feeling themselves as well. You know what this means? Hot, sweaty foreplay like never before! It boasts nine levels of oscillation, five vibration modes, and is completely waterproof. The only thing it’s missing is a built in doctors note so you can call in “sick” to work.
