Sex toys, a story that goes back to the dawn of time

Sex toys, a story that goes back to the dawn of time

The quest for carnal pleasure and the much desired and sought-after orgasm, solo or in duo, goes back to the dawn of time. Neither of you are the first or the last to have thought of using these vibrating mini objects in the shape of a phallus or a vagina. While the sextoys market has been booming for several years, we are keen to go back to its origins for you and tell you its story over time.

The first appearances of the sex toy in Antiquity

According to our research, it was in Antiquity well before JC that the very first sex toy appeared. According to legend, it would be Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, who was the somewhat devilish instigator of this intimate toy before becoming its first user. Not a penguin a priori this queen of legend who would have, it seems, imagined having bees fill a simple roll of papyrus to better appreciate in private the vibrations caused by the buzzing of these pretty furious ladies around their own queen of having deserted their usual hives. All of ancient Asia was also fond of these unusual but coveted objects, having the appearance of long polished stones wrapped in silk. Their uses, however, were reserved for queens only and taught only in the royal palace. Among the Greeks, these same objects, made of stone or wood, were called "gaude mihi" , which meant "Rejoice me", and which will later give rise to the word dildo.

The sex toy and its brief medical career

The period of bygone antiquity, the power and the growing influence of the church within society will unfortunately undermine this very legitimate object of desire. The social classes, disconcerted, willy-nilly choose chastity to the detriment of this natural right to the pleasure of sex... It will be necessary to wait until the 19th century to see the first mechanized sex toy appear in the medical field: a kind of A new type of small steam engine invented by the British physician Joseph Mortimer Grandville. The “ Grandville hammer ” aka “the spring-loaded mechanical striker” had the primary function of treating women with hysteria and nothing more.

The democratization of the sex toy

It is only at the very beginning of the 20th century with the appearance and then the generalization of electricity that the sex toy will move away from the medical environment to enter the sphere of pleasure and the intimacy of homes. The vibrator , which at that time looked much more like a hair dryer than an erect phallus, will benefit over the years from astonishing developments both in its design and in its presentation.

From then on, sex toys for adults will become real consumer goods and will continue to develop and reinvent themselves. Marked by the seal of pornography, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda from the series "Sex and the City" will greatly contribute to the sacrosanct democratization of intimate toys. The broadcast of episode 9 of this same series, which praises the famous "Rabbit" , a pink rabbit-shaped dildo, will cause a phenomenal, immediate and absolute planetary buzz. The “price” of the vibrator will skyrocket, sex shops will spring up on every street corner and the taboos concerning the use of sex toys will become a little less pressing, more discreet.

From the beginning of the 2010s, manufacturers of sex toys will redouble their imagination by offering minimalist and varied designs , in pocket format or in non-standard dimensions, controllable or not with a remote control, rechargeable or battery-powered, to meet the desires and to the needs of women and men who have remained somewhat ignorant in the face of all these novelties. Even beyond the appearance, technologies will constantly evolve and increasingly creative models will multiply: motor, pulsator, sucker... this was the beginning of the golden age of the sex toy.

Before buying your sex toy, you will have to take into account a few significant details that will help you compare the thousands of references offered on the Net.

- The material and components of your intimate toy

Not all materials are equal, far from it! and each manufacturer uses different materials in the composition of sex toys. There are rather noble materials of very high quality and others of lesser quality but more affordable. Some are rigid, others more flexible, porous or soft to the touch, easy or delicate to maintain. Our favorite goes to medical silicone which offers the advantage of being hypoallergenic , non-porous, easy to maintain, soft and pleasant to the touch. It is in a sense a must have, especially if it is " made in France " as with the Fun Factory sex toys offered on our online store. Intimate toys made from ABS plastic and elastomer have the advantage of being more affordable in terms of price. There are also sex toys made from metal, glass or ceramic that provide new sensations of hot and cold . Wood remains the most ecological and durable material, but this wood must be perfectly polished to guarantee a sensual effect without risk of splinters. We recommend the creations of Thierry Germain , a cabinetmaker from the Vosges, or those of the Idée du Désir brand. For the rest, we advise you to avoid latex, jelly or PVC sex toys at all costs . These materials are subject to transformation and the risk of the presence of substances harmful to the body is much greater. There are many models available on Alibaba that contain phthalates, chlorine or endocrine disruptors. To be concrete, let's say that these chemicals are used to soften plastic but are still considered toxic for human reproduction.

- The size of the intimate toy

The average length of an intimate toy is 15cm to 20cm , which roughly corresponds to the dimensions of a penis, but don't be surprised if you come across XXL models. According to Teddy Linet, a French gynecologist-obstetrician, the vagina would have an average length of 6.3cm at rest with a smaller width near the vulva with a diameter of about 17mm and larger at the bottom of the vagina (about 45mm). The vagina is an organ that could be described as elastic and that we could compare to tights since the vagina has no cavity and would allow the passage of a finger, a tampon, a penis and a penis. 'a baby. In conclusion, the vagina is neither big nor small but adapts under the irrigation of blood vessels and relaxes under the effect of excitement. So there is no perfect sex . Both the vagina and the vulva are different from woman to woman. So, what size to choose for your toy? If this is your first adult toy, don't think big and start with a toy that's small in size and has a decent diameter . Last bit of advice, don't forget to use a water-based intimate lubricant that ensures perfect gliding and pleasant, painless penetration.

95% of sex toys are made in China.

- The targeted pleasure zone

If the erogenous zones of men are limited to the prostate and the penis, among women the pleasure zones are much more numerous and there are toys adapted for each of them. Therefore, the model you choose will largely depend on the area you want to stimulate: the glans of the clitoris with these 8000 sensory sensors , a real pleasure bomb, the G-spot located a few centimeters deep from the vagina, the deep-spot located at the very bottom of the vagina, the vaginal walls less rich in sensory sensors but which can be pleasant to stimulate by friction, the highly innervated anal area or the perineum .

- The power source

There's nothing more frustrating than wanting to use your sex toy only to find it's not working due to battery issues. On this criterion, you can opt for rechargeable models that recharge with a simple click via a USB port or for battery-powered models . Batteries are a more expensive option in the long term, but it is practical in the event of a breakdown because you will always find a remote control or a scale that contains the energy necessary to make you come. You can also opt for wire sex toys , it's old school but they are surely the most powerful.

- Its resistance to splashes or 100% waterproof

If you like to make love as it suits you in the shower or caressing yourself in your bubble bath, know that there are models that can be completely immersed in water when other, more fragile ones will give up the ghost. after a few seconds. So be careful about purchasing.
