If you’ve spent much time reading my blog, or follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that I like taking pictures of my sex toys. And frequently, those sex toys are accompanied by other, ordinary playthings.
At first, using toys as photo props was purely a practical move. I’m a mom. I’m tripping over toys constantly. They’re literally EVERYWHERE. So when I looked around my house for ways to add visual interest to review photos, my kids’ toys naturally caught my eye. Visually, they tend to be a great fit. I can usually find “partners” for my vibrators and dildos in a similar style or color scheme.
Maybe it’s a robot/alien chilling with a Rocket Space Toy…
Or a sweet unicorn holding the G-Spot Lollipop…
Or how about the Fluke taking a cruise in Barbie’s convertible?
It could be that the sex toy and the character have something in common. Like floppy super-soft Chance with stretchy, wobbly Finn and Jake.
Or a little bad dragon on a Bad Dragon…here’s Toothless with Nox.
I couldn’t imagine anyone more suited to pose with the shiny Godemiche Adam than notorious gold hoarder Smaug.
Sometimes, when I’m doing a review, there’s an obvious tie-in between the sex toy and its companions. For the Crotch Rocket, a staged moon landing complete with aliens and astronauts just had to happen.
The Womanizer needed a flock of adoring fans.
The Matryoshka got together with its nesting doll friends.
Then there are the just plain goofy ideas. Funny face stickers on a dildo trio had me laughing so I could barely keep the camera straight.
What better way to show my love for lube than a big monster hug?
I never set out for this to be a theme, but it has become very much a part of my blog and the way I showcase my sex toys. Pairing them up with other toys takes something that has been considered “dirty” or taboo and displays it in a bright, friendly way. I like to think that someone might look at these photos and see sex toys in a different light. I want to highlight the importance of play and experimentation in sexual pleasure, to make those ideas more approachable to people who might be nervous or unsure. I want to take the sense of fun that I find vital to sexual pursuits of all sorts and share it with the world. And as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
