Charging For Sex

By | April 20, 2010

BDSM GlovesThe quest to lead greener lives and reduce our carbon footprint is becoming more prevalent.  You simply cannot ignore it, if we don’t become more energy efficient we are all going to suffer in the long run.

I extend this ethos to the bedroom too, I quite often use rechargeable toys avoiding the need to use batteries which ultimately have to be disposed of.  When I set out sex toy testing and reviewing 5 years ago rechargeable toys were far and few between but now there are a good range of products available.

I think the first rechargeable vibrator I used was Fun Factory Delight which was a beautifully curved vibrator which recharged rather conveniently in its storage box.  This toy really broke the mould in terms of design and concept and is a very good vibrator 3 years on.  I reviewed the Delight back in 2007 and you can read the review here.

Next came the We-Vibe way back in June 2008, when we were the first people in the UK to test and review it.  The We-Vibe was the first and only vibrator that I know of that is designed to be worn by the woman whilst having sex.  You can read my original review here.

This was closely followed by the Fun Factory Benjamin Bond vibrator which is not only a fun design but wonderfully contoured for added stimulation.  You can read the review I wrote about him here.  I believe he is discontinued now so sadly you won’t be able to try him out.

Shortly after my encounter with Benjamin I was introduced to a naughty little girl called Lily from Lelo.  This small and very discreet vibrator was one of the first “massagers” I tested.  It’s a very versatile sex toy because it can be used by both partners for stimulation.  My review for the Lelo Lily is here.  And yes you can still purchase her.  😉

Both Fun Factory and Lelo continue to produce rechargeable sex toys of very high quality and you will find that I have reviewed most of them here.

And the story continues because new to the rechargeable arena is a Korean company called Zini who produce some wonderfull conceived sex toys and I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing one of them over here.

I’m not sure what the next 5 years will bring but if it’s anything like the last 5 all I can say is bring it on.  😉
