When using your new Lelo Alia, be sure to always use plenty of lubrication, and water-based is mandatory when using a silicone based toy. Oil-based lubes cause the silicone to expand, creating tears and making it no longer waterproof. We at The Safe Alternative always recommend Sliquid brand organic lubes. Their lubes were created with women in mind, using only the finest ingredients keeping your most sensitive parts in tip top shape.

Treat yourself to the luxury and orgasm you deserve, get yourself a Lelo Alia and let the good times keep buzzin!

Product Highlight: All American Whopper

Nasstoys manufactures a realistic vibrator that’s as in demand as a G.I. was in Australia during World War II: the All-American Whopper. This vibrating dildo comes in at a solid eight inches, enough to fulfill all of your cock cravings. This isn’t a new product, as the demand for the All-American never goes away.NT1897-1

The All-American Whopper comes in at eight inches long accompanied by the girth you might desire, delivering 1.5 inches diameter. We aren’t talking a pop can, but enough that will make you say, “Oh, a bit more than I was expecting, but please don’t stop.” Take that sizeable length, girth and add the tri-setting vibration feature and you have enough to satisfy the most demanding G-spot. Don’t worry about the rigidity of this sex toy, it is very lifelike in both the feel of the covering and firmness.

Be sure to always use plenty of lubricant with your sex toy. At The Safe Alternative, we recommend an all-natural, organic lube for your most sensitive parts such as Sliquid Lubricants. When using Sliquid, you will enjoy a premium lubricant that won’t drip off the side of your toy before you even get started. Be sure to always use a water-based lubricant with silicone sex toys because using oil-based lubes causes the silicone coating to expand, exposing the inner parts of your toy.NT2376-1

Next time you are alone and need to real thing, relax knowing that if you keep an All-American Whopper by Nasstoys in your toy chest, you will be satisfied time and time again.

12 Shocking Sex Facts

1. Cycles of light affect our fertility
Women used to menstruate during the new moon (when it’s dark at night) and ovulate during a full moon (when it’s light). Now, in a world full of artificial lighting and bright screens, women are not as in tune with the connection between their biology and nature. Some have tried “lunaception,” altering the lights in their bedrooms based on the moon lighting to change their ovulation.

2. Women can get pregnant five to eight days after having sex
Studies have shown that some sperm can live in the cervical mucus crypt before the egg is actually fertilized for anywhere from five to eight days after sex.

3. Wearing high heels can negatively affect a woman’s orgasm
Certain high-end shoe brands developed the arch in their high-heeled shoes to approximate the arch in a woman’s pelvis when she is having an orgasm. The heels create a contraction in the pelvic floor, which is problematic because the pelvic floor then cannot contract further during orgasm. “An orgasm is usually like going from zero to 60,” explains Fromberg. “If you’re already at 55 [from wearing heels], you’re not going to have a full experience.”

4. Orgasms can make women more creative
Studies have shown that orgasms can make women more confident, productive and creative. And it’s a feedback loop—women achieve fuller orgasms when they are being creative.

5. Birth control pills dampen the libido
Any hormonal contraception has that psychological side effect. Sometimes women even have trouble conceiving once they’re off the pill because while they may have been attracted to their partner on the pill, they’re not actually compatible with each other biochemically without the extra hormones.

6.  Sitting in chairs can arouse women
Pudendal nerves, underneath the buttox and the sitting bones, feed arousal tissues (in the vagina, clitoris, anus, etc.). Sitting in a certain kind of chair pressing on the pudendal nerves in a certain way can lead to sexual arousal.

7. …But it can also dampen their orgasms
On the other hand, sitting in chairs for most of the day shortens the pelvic floor and psoas muscles—muscles which are essential to a full-body orgasm. When these muscles are tight from sitting too much, women find it harder to achieve a great orgasm.

8. Women have three erogenous zones 
The clitoris, the G Spot, AND the opening of the cervix. Some argue nipples belong on that list too.

9. Nerve endings are distributed differently in every woman’s vagina
Like a snowflake, each woman is unique in that her nerve endings are distributed in her genitalia differently than anyone else. That means, every woman needs to employ slightly different methods to achieve orgasm.

10. The pulsations a woman feels during orgasm are actually her uterus trying to gather sperm
Round ligaments that end in the labia majora “rock the uterus back and forth during orgasm so that the cervix has the opportunity to potentially scoop semen up that may have pooled in the back of the vagina to enhance fertility,” says Fromberg.

11. Being well hydrated leads to better orgasms
Because the body is mostly fluid, being hydrated enhances people’s ability to achieve orgasm.

12. All woman can achieve orgasm
Almost no woman was born unable to achieve an orgasm. “Women have the innate machinery programmed to have orgasms,” Fromberg explains. “But not everybody learns how to use that machinery well.”

Product Highlight: Je Joue Ami – Kegel Exerciser

Je Joue Ami

Je Joue Ami

Have you ever wanted more, grip to your womanhood? It’s so easy for guys to control their things at will… but a woman really has to work for her control. She practically has to go to a pussy gym to grow her vag strength. That’s why there’s a huge market for Ben Wah Balls and Kegel Exercisers.

“I have to put a weight in my pussy?” you ask and for what? Well, let’s have a little anatomy lesson. The pubococcygeous or “PC” muscle stretches from your pubic bone to your tailbone and is responsible for supporting your pelvic organs and genitalia, such as the uterus, bladder, small intestine and rectum. It’s also in charge of controlling your urine flow and is what contracts inside your vagina when you have an orgasm.

Kegel exercises are like any other strength training work out meant to tone and strengthen your PC muscles. There are several reasons a woman might want to strengthen her PC muscles, as they are weakened by conditions such as pregnancy and childbirth, surgery, aging or even being overweight. If you’re incontinent, kegel exercises may also help improve your situation.

Je Joue Ami

The development of Kegel exercises leads to a line of weighted products women can use and Je Joue, a UK-based manufacturer started in 2008, strives to empower couples and individuals to have great sexual experiences. Je Joue developed a set of kegel balls that any woman can use to tone and strengthen her PC muscles. The Je Joue Ami is an advancing three-step set of smooth and soft pelvic weights that allows one to train any pace and adapts to any age and fitness level.

Kegel Balls are inserted into the vagina and the user contracts the PC muscle to grip the ball and hold it in place. Some users may insert another small ball that moves around when inserted to help sense movement and grip against it.

Je Joue Ami is covered in 100% FDA-approved, body-safe silicone and has three pieces of varying types and weights: the Ami 1 is a large, smooth and lightweight single ball, the recommended starting point for new or returning Kegel exercisers.

Je Joue Ami

The Ami 2 is a middle-sized double ball that’s soft yet slightly heavier. The Ami 3 is a small, harder and heavier double ball. The Ami 3 is meant for the most experienced and advanced users.

All pieces of the Je Joue Ami are easy to use and completely comfortable; they may be worn casually around the house at first and eventually be worn for longer periods of time at your discretion. Be sure to always use plenty of lubricant with your sex toy. We here at The Safe Alternative recommend an all-natural, organic lube for your most sensitive parts. Sliquid Lubricants are the best in the business when it comes to your body and your lubricant. When using Sliquid, you will enjoy a premium lubricant that won’t drip off the side of your toy before you even get started. Be sure to always use a water-based lubricant with silicone sex toys. Using oil-based lubes causes the silicone to expand exposing the inner parts.

So go ahead, flex some vag muscle and try the Je Joue Ami today!

History of Condoms

History of condoms:

Condoms have been around for 400 years; however, historians believe they were used as far back as 3,000 years ago.

Early Civilization: It is not known whether or not condoms were used, however paintings suggest it they were used for sex or rituals. As early as the first century AD, a cave painting in France showed the use of condoms and Ancient Chinese and Japanese paintings show the use of gland condoms. Gland condoms were used to cover the head of the penis and made of oiled silk in China and tortoise shell or animal horn in Japan.

16th Century: Italian Gabriele Falloppio, was the first to write a treatise explicitly for the use of condoms during a syphilis outbreak. He wrote that his studies showed the use of linen sheath, dipped in chemicals and then dried, during intercourse prevented the spread of syphilis. Later he discovered that they also prevented pregnancy.  During the Renaissance Period, condoms started to be made out of animal intestine and bladder.

19th Century: condoms were viewed by religions as immoral because they were considered to promote promiscuity and the prevention of pregnancy. Despite religious misgivings, the condom grew in popularity around the industrialized world. They were typically only used by middle and upper class people due to cost and lack of sexual education.

In 1839 Charles Goodyear invented the rubber condom, and it was as thick as a bicycle tire. The process to make one condom was lengthy and was done by semi-skilled laborers.

Condoms met an uphill battle against the church and the government in America.  In 1873 the American congress passed the Comstock Act, prohibiting the use and dissemination of contraceptives. Along with the new law, condoms were being proven ineffective due to breaking or by falling off. Pro-Comstock groups also viewed sexually transmitted diseases as punishment for sexual behavior and soon “sexual education” began in schools, mostly preaching abstinence to students.

20th Century to present: Polish inventor Julius Fromm created a new way to make condoms in 1912 by dipping glass molds into rubber made liquid by gasoline and benzene, making them much thinner and more comfortable. By 1920, latex rubber was invented, suspended in water, and proved to be a better material due to its elasticity, its strength and its five-year shelve life, rather than three months. It was also far safer to manufacture. By the 1930’s latex condoms were very popular due to ease of manufacturing and cheaper cost, leaving the lambskin condom to become a niche market among catering to the upper class.

The militaries of both the US and Britain did not pass out condoms during WWI and the US alone saw a 70% STD rate among soldiers during the war. By WWII, those governments wised up and the STD rate had declined dramatically.  With clever advertising and new packaging, worldwide condom sales doubled in the 1920’s, despite the church and other watchdog groups views.

Condom sales continued to grow and became the next best form of birth control to abstinence. From 1945 to 1955, 45% of Americans said they used condoms as a form of birth control while 60% of Brits reported condom use from 1950 to 1960. Condoms took a back seat to the birth control pill when it debuted in the 1960’s but not by much. It wasn’t until the 1980’s, when it was discovered that HIV was transmitted sexually, that condoms made a comeback.

Condoms sales continued to increase until 1994 when ads about HIV started to taper off. By then condom manufacturers started to make condom ads humorous rather than scary to increase sales. Condoms were sold at more locations including grocery and convenient stores and offered in a wider variety, including all sorts of sizes, color, and even flavors.
