INS AND OUTS - GAGS

Another craptacular day out there. It’s almost like it’s winter in Vancouver. Weird hey? I’m trying to find some punny connection between telling myself to shut up about the weather and segueing into a post about gags but it ain’t coming. Gags. Gags fer yer mouth. This is what I’m talking about.

INS AND OUTS - HARNESSES

Holy crap it’s gross out today. Very glad to be cozy in the shop with my coffee and space heater and Sunday classical music on the CBC. But it’s not all cozy-coffee-sipping-cellos in here, there’s work to be done. For example, it falls to me to tell you aaaaaaall about

Harnesses.

Yeah, no. None of those.

INS AND OUTS - GLASS

So.
Having worked at various “adult boutiques” on and off for the past five years, you get to know all the lines. “Hey, condoms! You guys got a fitting room? Hyuk hyuk, hyuk.” “Where do the massages happen? It’s okay, I’m not a cop.” “My girl doesn’t need a vibrator, she’s got me.” “Glass?? But what happens if it breaks inside you??” This last one I’ve heard with increasing frequency of late, so I’d like to take a minute to talk about glass: why it’s awesome, why it’s worth the money, and why no, it won’t break inside you.

INS AND OUTS - CAT O' NINE TAILS

So I was watching Lars Von Trier’s explicit….hilarious….dark…..utterly outrageous…let’s just go with complicated film Nymphomaniac (part 2 if we’re being nitpicky), and I was inspired by a scene to write a quick note today about one of my favourite lil sex objects: The Cat O’ Nine Tails.

INS AND OUTS - NIPPLE EDITION

There’s a chill in the air today guys, and there’s a saying for that: nippy. It’s distinctly nippy out there (and in here thanks to me and my hate for bras), and now feels like the perfect time to talk about nips. In the world of genital-centric sex, nipples often get neglected or left out entirely. But these little guys can be incredibly erogenous when stimulated, with some people even being able to orgasm just from nipple play!

COVER YOUR BITS!!

 

Yesterday the CBC ran a story about a dress code (pictured abover) that was handed out to Air Cadets in St. Johns Newfoundland. Among other things, the dress code warned female cadets against wearing shirts that “reveal their developing bits”. Their. Developing. Bits. You can read the article here.

INS AND OUTS - SHIBARI

Hey everybody!


Fall is officially in the air, and to be quite honest I love it. The chill makes me feel creative, energized, and most relevantly: sexy!

Today I’m going to be talking about the very sexy and seductive art of Shibari, or, Japanese rope bondage. Briefly, this incredible art began in Japan several hundred years ago, and was originally devised for the purpose of tying up prisoners in unknown (and therefore harder to escape) ways. These techniques began show up on stages in the 1950s, and have gained in popularity and complexity ever since.

HUMP a collection of short amateur porn clips

 I went to the RIO theater last night to see a collection of short movie clips of amateur porn and it was so fun.  Each clip is about 5 minutes long and they made me laugh and filled me with wonder at the variety in peoples sexual lives and creative minds.  Tonight is the last night its playing in Vancouver so go to the RIO for 7pm or 9:30pm show.    Do it!

Disgruntled Dickery

Apparently your tenure here at the Art of Loving is not complete without some disgruntled customer chucking their used toy at you. I came in to work today to hear of my lovely and beloved co-worker having had a used cockring thrown at her. The guy had had it for over a MONTH. If you buy a $10 ring to keep your Johnson poking at whoever is lucky enough to be on the receiving end of your tender erection, you can bank on it eventually breaking apart. If your toy has disappointed you, we're more than happy to help solve the problem, but whether it's a cockring, a rabbit faced vibrator or a can of paint: it's assault if you throw it at us. Not in keeping with the Art of Loving, and we don't deal in actual Dick. 

INS AND OUTS- STIMULATING POTIONS

So last week was all about dulling the senses when they prove to be too…well, sensitive! But sometimes the opposite is the case, senses not sensitive enough! Luckily there is an entire world of products designed with exactly that situation in mind, and ‘cause “topical stimulants” doesn’t sound all that sexy, let’s call ‘em stimulating potions!

(This is what came up in google when I searched “sexy science”. You’re welcome.)

INS AND OUTS - MALE DESENSITIZERS

Hello friends,
While the ever popular and extremely informative Anal Play for Women seminar goes on behind me (with a LIVE DEMO no less!) I would like to take a few minutes to talk about male genital desensitizers.

So much of the sex toy and tool world is about increasing stimulation, adding textures and vibrations, pressure, suction, lube, electricity, you name it! But sometimes what people need is not more sensation, but less.

INS AND OUTS- SUPPLEMENT EDITION

Hey Everybody,


I have fractured my heel, and can only hobble, so I’m spending today with my butt firmly planted in this here office chair. For that reason, I am going to take the opportunity to take an in depth look at a type of product I have always found intimidating: the herbal sexual enhancement supplement.

INS AND OUTS- DILDO EDITION

 

My friends,
I have come to you today to talk about a subject very dear to my heart: Dildos. First of all, it’s a great word. Dildo. Dill Doe. Good alliteration on them syllables. Also, notably, of unknown etymological origin. Who doesn’t like a good mystery?

Ins and Outs- Sex Shop Edition!

Howdy!

So far on Ins and Outs I have discussed how to choose a cock ring, how to choose a penis pump, and how to choose a condom. Today I’d like to get a little macro and discuss

How to Choose a Sex Shop

At first glance this may seem like an incredibly self-serving topic of exploration, but it was spurred by a sex shop in another city, on the other side of the country, promise!

INS AND OUTS- CONDOM EDITION

Howdy y’all!
Today is Father’s Day, a yearly Sunday dedicated to celebrating the joys of fatherhood, and what better time to talk about……


CONDOMS!
