Toxic Vs Non Toxic Sex Toys; What To Watch For

Blog By M. Mitera

We know that buying a sex toy can be overwhelming but it’s not the best idea to just run in to an adult shop, pick up the first toy you  see, and run out without actually studying the item that you’re purchasing. It’s important to be sure that the materials your new toy is made out of are appropriate for your body and aren’t going to be a breeding ground for mold or bacteria to build up. Unfortunately, buying new toys can be a bit confusing, especially when you’re unsure of the difference between the labeling of “body safe” vs “non-toxic” on sex toys.

Toxic is the containment of poisonous substances in a toy. While the chances of your sex toy murdering you are fairly low, these materials can cause adverse effects that are definitely unpleasant and can have a negative effect on

the body. The most apparent toxic substance in sex toys is phthalates but it is thankfully on the decline. Using toys containing these toxic substances aren’t going to hurt you with one or two uses but it’s better to be safe than sorry and avoid these things all together. Be sure to make sure that your toy states that it’s free of phthalates. Heavy metals can also be contained in sex toys but is much less common.

Non toxic is a term used for materials that are porous but are unlikely to contain anything harmful.”Flesh” like toys tend to fall in to this category such as the Fleshlights. TPE/TRP labeled toys also fall under the non toxic umbrella. However, it’s important to note that PVC could also fall in to this bracket but should always be researched to be sure that the brand has not failed lab tests for certain chemicals. Since non toxic toys are made of porous materials, they will eventually need to be replaced as they form a breeding ground for bacteria that cannot be cleaned. The pores hold bacteria and germs and with those colonies, the material will degrade over time. If you notice that your toy is sweating an oily substance or changing color, immediately dispose of it. Be aware that these toys can sometimes cause vaginal infections in some people.

So what’s the best option? Stick to toys that are non porous if you’re worried that cleaning won’t be enough. Good ideas for toys in this case are surgical grade stainless steel, titanium, glass, and wood that has been sealed with food grade sealant that won’t be able to wash away. Be sure to clean all toys with cleaner and make sure to store them in the proper place. Do your research before buying anything and never, ever rush yourself when picking up a new toy.

Here’s The Deal On Suction Vibrators

Blog By M. Mitera

As the years go by, technology changes and people are coming up with all sorts of new ways to get themselves excited. Sex toys are much different now than they used to be in years passed. The newest interesting sex toy to grace the market is the style of suction vibrators. I’m sure you’re familiar with the traditional vibrator… It’s pretty self explanatory. But these new toys take orgasms to a whole new level with the settings that they offer. Instead of vibrating on the clitoris, it uses a suction feature on the visible part of the clitoris instead. The reviews on this style of vibrator are incredibly positive, with some customers even saying that these toys give them the best orgasms that they’ve ever had. So of course, with such rave reviews, we not only had to bring them in to the shop for you all to buy but we wanted to go over just why these are so awesome.

This style of vibrator has been around for a decent stretch of time but many people weren’t aware of it until the last three or so years. Prior to the spike in popularity, suction vibrators were basically labeled as a “kink” or “fetish” toy, much like cock pumps and pussy pumps. Working on the same principles as the pumps, the suction vibrator draws blood to the clitoris, which stimulates arousal. This is turn gives the user more intense, longer lasting orgasms. Scientists have actually studied these toys to the point where they feel confident that suction vibrators could be an extreme benefit for those who suffer from sexual dysfunction. Basically, even science says these vibrators are awesome.

The biggest benefit to the suction vibrators is that they are perfect for those who have a tough time achieving an orgasm. Since everyone is different and requires different levels of stimulation, suction vibrators provide next level orgasms that are sure to be satisfying to even the strongest willed person. With the settings being so varied, many customers say that they orgasm in less than thirty seconds, making these toys ideal for basically anyone. You can change settings too, so if one day you’re feeling crazy, your vibrator can reflect that and if on another day, you’re not so into it, you can lower the settings.

This style of vibrator is absolutely one that you should look in to purchasing. Whether you’re having trouble finding something strong enough to send you over the edge or you just want to try something new, give a suction vibrator a trial run and see how you like it! We have many in stock here at MALS so either check out our online store or come in and see us!

Pride Month At MALS

Blog By M. Mitera

The world has been very turbulent lately, with many different acts of aggression happening all around the globe. It’s sad how we as humans can’t accept each other for who we are ,especially in the year 2019. But things are slowly progressing, the hate is dwindling, and those that are part of/supportive of the LGBTTQQIAAP community are pushing for equality and acceptance in society. Even though there are still obstacles to face, communities are banding together to make sure everyone feels safe, regardless of what they identify as. At Manchester Adult Lifestyles, we are accepting of everyone and aim to make a comfortable atmosphere for all of our customers.

Pride Month is the celebration in honor of the Stonewall Uprising in 1969. The police in Manhattan raided a gay club and riots and other demonstrations by the gay community followed. For six days, the turmoil lasted. Pride Month is a way of commemorating those events. The Stonewall Uprising was a huge turning point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. While starting with a pride day on the last Sunday of June, the celebration of the community blossomed to an entire month. Picnics, workshops, concerts, and parades are some of the ways that Pride Month celebrates. There are also memorials held for those who have been lost to hate crimes as well as HIV/AIDS. Overall, Pride Month is to bring members of the gay community in to the spotlight for their contributions to history.

Sex Furniture & the Benefits

Blog By M. Mitera

If you’ve had any sort of adventurous sex, chances are high that you’ve used a piece of furniture in your house to help in the act. Chairs, benches, tables, washing machines, etc. All of these things can make great additions to play time. But these items aren’t designed for such roughhousing and can take some damage in certain situations. Also, they can be somewhat uncomfortable. But thankfully, toy companies understand the struggle of finding a comfortable piece of furniture to bang on. There are plenty of options out there for sex-oriented furniture and there are some surprising benefits to using them as well!

Sex furniture is a vague term and covers a wide variety of extra goodies that you can add to your sex life. From sex swings to dance poles, these items are sure to spice things up. Of course, you need to remember that your lifestyle dictates the kind of sex furniture that you have laying around. If you’re someone who likes to have company over (and not always in a sexual way), you probably don’t want a sex swing hanging out of the ceiling of your living room when the neighbors come over for dinner. Just remember that when picking out your new toy. While some toys are very sly and can be hidden around the house, some are very apparent. It’s a good idea to plan out what toys will go where before buying them so you can keep your kinky side on the down low.

One of the most popular pieces of sex furniture are the swings. People love sex swings. They are extremely fun and easy to assemble. They allow for added mobility that some people have trouble achieving. Being able to rotate your partner and switch positions almost instantly is great for those who find it difficult to be on their knees for long periods of time. The swings also give you a much larger range of motion, making things much more pleasurable for both parties! We have numerous styles of sex swings at MALS so definitely stop by to check them out! Even if you’re not ready for a swing, we have interesting additions to a regular mattress that will keep your partner in place, like the Bed Bondage Restraint Kit!

The sex machines are another type of erotic furniture. These machines make things really interesting, some of which even come equipped with cell phone holders as well as a “him” and “her” side. Currently, MALS has the Couple’s Power Banger in stock. This epic machine is for both parties, is lightweight, and easy to use. The best part about these power bangers? Even though they are a bit bigger, they are easily hidden in a closet or under a bed. Take them out when needed and none of your visitors will even know that you have an incredible banging machine stashed away.

Dance poles are geared more towards those who enjoy watching instead of participating. The good thing about the poles is that they can be used for larger audiences. So okay, maybe some people don’t want their visitors to see their kinky side but others really enjoy involving multiple people. If this sounds like something you and your sexually charged friends would enjoy, a dance pole can not only provide entertainment but it’s also a great workout! We currently have two poles in stock right now; the Power Pole and the Fantasy Series Dance Pole. The Fantasy Series comes complete with a spinning light that will only increase the mood and the Power Pole comes with instructions on how to get the best (and sexiest) workout possible!

There are so many different kinds of sex furniture! And lucky for you, we can order almost anything you can think of and have it delivered right to our shop. We even got in a vibrating chair that would be perfect for some couple’s “time out” style play! If you haven’t stopped by to check out the selection here at MALS, you’re absolutely missing out. Whether you’re looking for power bangers or dance poles or something in between, chances are we have it!
