Before I started writing about sex and relationships, I had a very small collection of sex toys; two to be exact. One was the Babeland Silver Bullet that I got for free when I showed them my "I voted" sticker back in November 2008 and the other was this ugly blue penis-looking vibrator that I had bought when I was in college. That thing was my first sex toy, and although my mind was blown by just how fast I reached an orgasm with it, I was never one to feel like I needed a whole bunch of toys. Honestly, I still don't.
Then in 2010, I got my first assignment to cover a blow job class at Babeland for an article. Little did I know at that time that writing about sex wouldn't just become my "beat", but it would also become something for which I'd have a deep passion. Not just because I love sex, but because, in being extremely sex-positive, I firmly believe it's a topic we should never shy away from and it's a conversation we should all be having. Whether that discussion is about sexual health, contraception, sexual satisfaction, reproductive rights, or the latest results of a sex study, I feel, from the bottom of my heart, it's important.
Which brings us to now; I'm seven years older and, maybe, five years wiser. After years of writing about sex and trying easily, oh maybe 100 toys (perhaps, more?), I can tell you exactly what toys have strengthened my orgasms and, after all this time, remain my favorites.
