The Down Low on Dildos

Published

on

The next time your favorite Italian restaurant brings out those bread sticks and olive oil to your table, keep in mind they could be suggesting you go fuck yourself. Italians do not actually eat their bread sticks this way, however ancient Greeks used bread shaped dildos lubricated with olive oil to satisfy those late night cravings. If you have ever wondered about the history of your favorite pleasure toy we are here with a brief overview of the twisted history of dildos.

That pink plastic perfection hiding in your bedside drawer has spent about 30,000 years becoming the magical toy it is today. According to some archaeologists, humans already made dildos as early as during the Stone Age. Ancient Greek vase art portrayed dildos in a clear and explicitly sexual manner often used in orgies or masturbation scenes. There are also the bizarre breadstick dildos we mentioned earlier called olisbokollikes that were recovered from 5th century Greece and tend to top all the “weirdest sex toys” lists around the Internet. Some civilizations even included elaborate gold and bronze dildos in their burial rituals. The “Cantonese groin,” was a root sufficiently penis-shaped to be used as a dildo by peasant women.

When you think of dildo, you probably imagine a silicone (or plastic) phallus shape. However, both of these are newer inventions, and people used other types of materials earlier. During history, people made wooden dildos, stone, tar, ivory, bone, and many others. Today, you can even find ones made of metal designed for the ones looking for something a bit different. Obviously, stone dildos are not the a great choice, so people started looking for something more comfortable. During the fifteenth century, in Italy, people began using materials like leather to make them a bit softer and more enjoyable. Similarly, in the seventeenth century Japan, they used buffalo horns for making dildos. In Greece, people used leather and animal intestines to make dildos comfortable and to offer a more natural texture. Over the years, people moved to more standardized materials like rubber, glass, and anything that can be easily sterilized and cleaned.

Dildos did become taboo for a while as Christianity spread, even as recently as 1980 bills have been passed through the house and senate to regulate the number of dildos someone could have in their home. (The Arizona Dildo Law) There are many places where buying a dildo is not possible. For example, purchasing one in Alabama requires a note from your doctor. Naturally, one can assume that dildos are used as medical devices in Alabama. Similarly, selling dildos was illegal in Texas as well. While the Texas dildo law remains, judges are unwilling to charge anyone, and there haven’t been prosecutions in over a decade. Sex toys are illegal in India as well.

While the dildo is literally as old as phallic rocks, the vibrator is a more recent invention and needs electric or battery power to operate. Vibrators were originally devised for sinister and downright invasive purposes, by doctors who wanted to use them to treat “hysterical” women patients. So, if you prefer a powered toy you can thank the crazy French doctors for your next O.

The world of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, Submission, Sadism, and Masochism)! It’s a complex and multifaceted topic that can be both thrilling and intimidating for those new to the scene.

**Understanding BDSM:**

BDSM is a consensual and negotiated form of sexual expression that involves a range of activities, including:

1. **Bondage:** Physical restraint using ropes, chains, or other materials.
2. **Discipline:** Punishment or correction through physical or emotional means.
3. **Dominance/Submission:** One person takes control, while the other submits to their desires.
4. **Sadism/Masochism:** One person derives pleasure from inflicting pain or humiliation, while the other derives pleasure from receiving it.

**Safety First:**

Before exploring BDSM, it’s essential to prioritize safety and consent:

1. **Consent:** Obtain explicit consent from all parties involved in any activity.
2. **Communication:** Discuss boundaries, desires, and limits with your partner(s) beforehand.
3. **Safe words:** Establish a safe word or signal to stop the activity if needed.
4. **Hygiene and cleanliness:** Practice good hygiene to prevent infection.

**Getting Started:**

If you’re new to BDSM, consider the following steps:

1. **Explore online resources:** Websites, forums, and social media groups can provide valuable information and connections with others.
2. **Read about different activities:** Learn about various BDSM practices, their implications, and potential risks.
3. **Find a community:** Attend local events, join online groups, or find a mentor to learn from experienced individuals.
4. **Start with soft play:** Begin with non-painful activities like role-playing, sensual massage, or bondage using rope toys.

**Activities for Novices:**

Some popular BDSM activities for beginners include:

1. **Flogging:** A form of impact play using a flogger (soft or hard).
2. **Rope bondage:** Tying someone up using rope or cordage.
3. **Sensory deprivation:** Using blindfolds, earplugs, or headphones to heighten sensory experience.
4. **Mummification:** Wrapping someone in cloth or tape for sensation play.

**Tips for Success:**

Balloon Fetish

By

The fascination with balloons! It’s not uncommon for people to have unique preferences or attractions, and balloon-related arousal is one such phenomenon. While it’s not universally accepted, there are a few theories that might help explain why some people might be turned on by balloons:

1. **Textural stimulation**: The tactile sensation of balloons can be quite pleasurable for some individuals. The smooth, soft, and sometimes slightly rough texture of balloons can be a source of sensory pleasure. Some people might enjoy the feeling of running their fingers or hands over the balloon’s surface, or even popping the balloon to release the air and feel the sudden release of pressure.
2. **Visual appeal**: Balloons can be quite visually appealing, with their vibrant colors, shapes, and sizes. The way they move and float in the air can be mesmerizing, and some people might find the visual display stimulating. The sound of balloons popping or releasing air can also be a sensory trigger.
3. **Nostalgia and childhood associations**: For some people, balloons might evoke memories of childhood birthday parties, celebrations, or special events. The association with happy times and feelings of joy can create a sense of nostalgia and emotional connection to balloons.
4. **Sensory exploration**: Some individuals might be attracted to balloons due to their unique sensory properties. The way they respond to touch, pressure, and movement can create a sense of curiosity and exploration. This curiosity can translate into a sense of arousal or pleasure.
5. **Kinky or fetishistic interest**: In some cases, the attraction to balloons might be related to specific kinks or fetishes. For instance, some people might enjoy the feeling of being bound or restrained by balloons, while others might find the idea of inflating or deflating balloons as a form of erotic play appealing.
6. **Neurological factors**: Research suggests that human brains are wired to respond to certain stimuli, including textures, sounds, and visuals. Some people might have an innate predisposition to find certain sensory experiences pleasurable, including those associated with balloons.

It’s essential to remember that these theories are not universally accepted and are based on individual perspectives and experiences. It’s crucial to respect people’s individual preferences and boundaries when it comes to their sexual attractions.

In conclusion, while the reasons for being turned on by balloons might vary from person to person, it’s likely a combination of factors that contributes to this attraction. Ultimately, understanding and respecting individual preferences is essential for building a more inclusive and accepting society.

Why people love lumbersexuals!

The lumbersexual!

A lumbersexual is a colloquial term used to describe a type of urban, hipster, or fashion-conscious individual who adopts a rugged, outdoorsy aesthetic, often without actually engaging in the corresponding activities or having a genuine connection to the great outdoors.

The term “lumbersexual” was coined in 2014 by the website The Hairpin to describe the phenomenon of men (although it can also apply to women) who sported beards, flannel shirts, and other rustic attire, but were not necessarily outdoorsy or interested in traditional “lumberjack” activities like logging or forestry.

Common characteristics of lumbersexuals include:

1. A well-groomed beard or facial hair.
2. A preference for flannel shirts, trucker hats, and other clothing items commonly associated with outdoor activities.
3. A penchant for craft beer and artisanal coffee.
4. A love for indie music, vinyl records, and vintage clothing.
5. A strong sense of style and fashion awareness.

While lumbersexuals may not actually be involved in outdoor activities like hiking or camping, they often enjoy the aesthetic and cultural associations that come with this look. They may use the “lumberjack” style as a form of fashion expression or a way to connect with a perceived sense of rugged individualism.

It’s worth noting that the term “lumbersexual” has been criticized for being overly ironic and pretentious, as it often involves adopting a style without actually embracing the values and lifestyle associated with it. However, it remains a popular cultural phenomenon and a symbol of urban, hipster culture.
