Edenfantasys has it all

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

I cannot express how much I love Edenfantasys as a store. They have everything about sexuality that you could possibly want to purchase, including sex toys, sex enhancers, condoms, lingerie, body products, BDSM equipment, erotica, porn, and apparel. My favorite is obviously sex toys, as they are usually things you cannot find anywhere else except for at a sex toy shop, but other aspects of Edenfantasys are always appreciated too.

The most traditional sex toy that I like are vibrators because they are easy to use and they bring me the most pleasure. Even beginners can get pleasure out of vibrators. Unlike dildos and couples' toys, vibrators are toys that you can just whip out on your own, anytime, anywhere, and even if careful, can use discreetly to your enjoyment. The point of vibrators is that they create strong vibrations that you can hold to your most sensitive parts - your clitoris, vulva, nipples, and so on - and it can create the most wonderful of sensations. I take back what I said about discretion - some vibrators can be very loud and very obvious. but hey, if you are home alone, what should it matter? However there really ARE vibrators that are discreet though! There are ones that don't even look like vibrators, such as the rubber ducky vibe that just looks like a plain old bathtime rubber ducky, or pendant vibes, which just look like pretty necklaces. Whatever the shape, size, and "vroom level", as Edenfantasys likes to call it, all vibrators can bring pleasures to you in their own special way.

Some interesting Historical Romance facts

I'm a fan of historical romance and love seeing the "real-life" stories about romance throughout history. Here's a cute article I found about history and love from enjoy!

Ancient Courtship

In ancient times, many of the first marriages were by capture, not choice - when there was a scarcity of nubile women, men raided other villages for wives. Frequently the tribe from which a warrior stole a bride would come looking for her, and it was necessary for the warrior and his new wife to go into hiding to avoid being discovered. According to an old French custom, as the moon went through all its phases the couple drank a brew called metheglin, which was made from honey. Hence, we get the word, honeymoon. Arranged marriages were the norm, primarily business relationships born out of the desire and/or need for property, monetary or political alliances.

Medieval Chivalry

From buying a woman dinner to opening a door for her, many of today's courting rituals are rooted in medieval chivalry. During medieval times, the importance of love in a relationship emerged as a reaction to arranged marriages, but was still not considered a prerequisite in matrimonial decisions. Suitors wooed their intended with seranades and flowery poetry, following the lead of lovelorn characters on stage and in verse. Chastity and honor were highly regarded virtues. In 1228, women first gained the right to propose marriage in Scotland, a legal right that then slowly spread through Europe.

Victorian Formality

During the Victorian Era (1837-1901), romantic love became viewed as the primary requirement for marriage and courting became even more formal - almost an art form among the upper classes. An interested gentleman could not simply walk up to a young lady and begin a conversation. Even after being introduced, it was still some time before it was considered appropriate for a man to speak to a lady or for a couple to be seen together. Once they had been formally introduced, if the gentleman wished to escort the lady home he would present his card to her. At the end of the evening the lady would look over her options and chose who would be her escort. She would notify the lucky gentleman by giving him her own card requesting that he escort her home. Almost all courting took place in the girl's home, always under the eye of watchful parents. If the courting progressed, the couple might advance to the front porch. Smitten couples rarely saw each other without the presence of a chaperone, and marriage proposals were frequently written.

Courtship Customs & Tokens of Love

  • All the Nordic countries have courtship customs involving knives. For example, in Norway when a girl came of age, her father let it be known that she was available for marriage. The girl would wear an empty sheath on her belt. If a suitor liked the girl, he would put a knife in the sheath, which the girl now wore as a sign that she was betrothed.
  • The custom of bundling, found in many parts of 16th and 17th century Europe and America, allowed courting couples to share a bed, fully clothed, and often with a "bundling board" between them or bolster cover tied over the girls legs. The idea was to allow the couple to talk and get to know each other but in the safe (and warm) confines of the girl's house.
  • Dating back to 17th century Wales, ornately carved spoons, known as lovespoons, were traditionally made from a single piece of wood by a suitor to show his affection to his loved one. The decorative carvings have various meanings - from an anchor meaning "I desire to settle down" to an intricate vine meaning "love grows."
  • Chivalrous gentlemen in England often sent a pair of gloves to their true loves. If the woman wore the gloves to church on Sunday it signalled her acceptance of the proposal.
  • In some parts of 18th century Europe a biscuit or small loaf of bread was broken over the head of the bride as she emerged from the church. Unmarried guests scrambled for the pieces, which they then placed under their pillows to bring dreams of the one they would someday marry. This custom is believed to be the precursor of the wedding cake.
  • Many cultures throughout the world recognize the idea of matrimony as the "ties that bind". In some African cultures, long grasses are braided together and used to tie the hands of the groom and bride together to symbolize their union. Delicate twine is used in the Hindu Vedic wedding ceremony to bind one of the bride's hand to one of the hands of the groom. In Mexico the practice of having a ceremonial rope loosely place around both of the necks of the bride and groom to "bind" them together is common.

Lube promotions from ID JUICY

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store
ID Juicy lube is probably one of my favorite brands both because of quality and fun-factor. in terms of quality, ID is always slippery, long-lasting, and comfortable. whether I am with my SO or am having some fun time on my own with my sex toys, I need that kind of durability for maximum comfort. The fun part of ID Juicy is that it is deliciously scented and flavored! there are 12 (YES, 12) different flavors that are all fun and tasty in their same way. this is great for those who like to top off sex with a little dessert like a blowjob. Plus if you do not like the taste of a man (or woman's) junk in your mouth, this stuff won't totally impede your senses while you go down on your SO, but they will indeed take the unpleasantness away.

My favorite flavors include Fresh Peach because it is flavored very yummily (?) like Peach flavored candy. I'm also a fan of Cool Mint because it has a refreshing feel.

What's your favorite toy?

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store
Everyone has that one special sex toy they can trust whenever they're feeling down. I sometimes sit at work thinking "wow.....only three more hours of this hell and I can go home to my good old toys!" because that's how much I love them! of course this is the equivalent of anticipating sex when I'm in a relationship also. but the thing with sex toys is that they're so stable. A relationship changes, it has its ups and downs and is never guaranteed to work out (I'm sorry ladies, but this is so true, even in marriage), but sex toys will always be there for you.

My favorite toy personally is the Sasi by Lelo. It is uniquely shaped so the curves fit to the curves of my body.
SaSi - Clitoral vibrator
The vibrations are strong, and one charge lasts very long too. Oh and it is rechargeable which is always a good thing, a step to a greener world! It's a bit on the expensive side, as all Lelo toys are. but trust me, this one is so worth it. Sometimes I just have to learn to splurge on a luxury toy. Usually there's a reason they are so pricey! because they're so good!
