Throwback Thursday - The Redusaway

Thursday November 1, 2018

While looking online for vintage vibrators, as is my habit, I found one that I've never seen before. It's the Redusaway Massager from Ward Green Company electrical. This is similar to the roller type massagers of the time, but it's so absolutely adorable, I can't stand it! It looks like a telephone, or an iron, or some combination of the two. 

 

The Magic Wand Turns 50!

Wednesday October 24, 2018
2018 is a big year for sex toy anniversaries.  The We Vibe turned 10 this year.  But the We Vibe looks like a baby compared to another toy sharing an anniversary this year.  The Magic Wand, first known as the Hitachi Magic Wand, was introduced to North America in 1968.

Throwback Thursday - The Barbershop Vibrator

Thursday October 11, 2018

I've seen many pictures of old toys like this:

I've even seen one in the Good Vibration museum of vibrator history.  They are often called 'massagers' as many old toys are.  It's not much a stretch to think that people, particularly people with vulvas and clitoris's (what's the plural of clitoris?  clitori?) figured out the many wonderful places they could use these aside from aching shoulders.  Anyway, I digress. My point is, I am quite familiar with what an object like this is for.

So, you can imagine my shock and surprise, when, while rewatching Mad Men, I watched a barber who was giving Don a shave, strap two of these onto his hands and started massaging Don's shoulders.

Another Product You Don't Need

Wednesday October 10, 2018

One of my distributors sent me a list of new products yesterday and one of them caught my attention - for all the wrong reasons. 

The writing in the picture is pretty small, so if you haven't figure it out from the name, I'll let you know what it says "Intimate Area Lightening Gel - improves the look of discoloured areas - anal, vaginal, bikini area, nipple, dark underarms - FOR WOMEN'.

Batman Bares it All

Wednesday October 3, 2018

Look out comics lovers, Batman has bared it all!

For decades, DC Comics, home of Batman, Wonder Woman and many other beloved superheroes, followed the guidelines of the Comics Code Authority, established in 1954.  In order to get the CCA stamp of approval (it's an actual stamp, kids, I'm not making this up) comic producers had to adhere to a pretty strict list of guidelines.  No nudity, no sex, no swearing, no gay stuff - there was also some weird stuff about religion and right triumphing over evil. Most stores would not put comics on their shelves without the CCA stamp.
