Sh! New toy!

Some time ago I wrote about my toys. Yes, the ones that run on batteries. Well, as you might recall I have (or rather: had) two eggs that I like a lot. When both died within a month of each other, you can imagine I got quite upset. The first one to go was the tiger egg. Just stopped working one day. Connection issue inside the egg, I think. Very common malfunction, because the cord gets pulled a lot. I don’t care though. They don’t cost that much. Now, the tiger egg was supposedly water proof, so that’s the one I’ve been bringing to the shower. When it died, I brought the silver bullet to the shower instead. Of course, it isn’t even close to waterproof, and so it died as well. Very saddening, especially since I was quite horny at the time.

So when I went to London, I had to go sex toy shopping. T and I stopped by several stores, but most were the common, dirty, dark variety that you find a lot of around here. I say most, because one was very different. It’s called Sh!, and is run by women for women. The only way a guy can get in is when he’s accompanied by a woman. They are always open. Every day. Including Saturdays and Sundays. Until 8 in the evening! Me and T arrived at quarter to seven on our first evening in London, after walking around lost for the past half hour. It was dark outside, raining, and we felt miserable. I entered this bright, warm, pleasant place. Wooden floors. Clean. Well lit. Three women sit around chatting, all apparently working there. One gets up, asks if we’d like a cup of tea and takes away our coats. From that moment I was in love with Sh!. So we walked around there, steaming mugs of tea in hand, looking at all these great toys (at very affordable prices compared to other places I’ve seen). Downstairs there were more toys as well as lingerie and corsets. They even had lingerie for big people like me. On a large table upstairs, many of the vibrators and other buzzing toys were put out on display. Anyone could turn them on and feel the vibration (with their hands, obviously, not any other body part). The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. All in all a great shop that I’d recommend to anyone going to London.

I bought a new vibrating egg. This one is pale purple in colour and has four settings. The vibration is incredibly strong on the strongest setting. The first two are more than enough for me. But I like that I have the possibility to go higher if I want to.
