Online shopping is an option but a lot of people like to see what they’re buying before they buy it, especially when it comes to sex toys. Continue reading

Blog By M. Mitera

Whether you’re single or in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. It can be a stressful holiday for some but it doesn’t have to be! Whether you have someone to spoil or you’re spoiling yourself, Manchester Adult Lifestyles can help you make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. It’s important to treat yourself (or your partner) right! We have toys for all sorts of people here and you’re sure to find something that you’ll enjoy using! While many people still think Valentine’s Day comes with some sort of expectation of what you should be doing, we disagree and think that this day should be reserved for not just flowers and roses but for vibrators and butt plugs too!

Sexual kinks are still very much hidden behind closed doors these days. Although many people are coming forward, unashamed of their desires, there are still just as many that look down at the floor when asked what their favorite playtime activity is. It shouldn’t be this way. We should be able to openly discuss and talk about our sexual endeavors, without the worry of being judged. So if you’re worried about being judged for what you like, come to MALS where we can help you not only be comfortable with what you like but we can assist you in finding a toy that you love! Our selection of toys, lubricants, lingerie, and so much more is bound to produce something you (and your partner if you’re having one join you) absolutely love.

If you are spending this year without a partner, don’t fret. We have so many toys that are made for the single person, you honestly won’t be able to pick one without help from our staff. From vibrators to an actual Real Doll, we have at least one item that you’ll end up taking home. There’s no reason that you shouldn’t get some love on Valentine’s Day and self love in honestly the best kind of love you can get. As the saying goes, you can’t receive love until you give it to yourself! If you’re interested in exploring this idea, definitely stop by our store so we can introduce you to some amazing stuff.

In a relationship? No matter what kind of dynamic you have going on, we have toys for couples, triples, whatever you need! Not only do we have toys and sexy outfits, we have a decent selection of lover’s kits, sexual board games, and edible undies. Did we mention that our Clone-A-Willy line is an absolutely amazing couple’s activity? And if you haven’t gotten in to shibari yet, you should probably look it up because that’s a great time as well! No matter what you’re in to, we can find something to make your day rock!

People have all different sorts of likes and dislikes. Our staff is extremely professional and ready to help answer any questions you may have about the products we sell. There’s no need to be embarrassed, we have heard it all. We aren’t just retail employees here. We’re people who genuinely care about the health and well-being of our customers.

The MotorBunny Mountable Sex Toy

Blog By M. Mitera

Sex toys have come a long way in the last few years. There are all sorts of advancements to make alone time (and time with your partner) more enjoyable. With so many different products coming out, how are you even supposed to decide which one to get?! Especially with some of these hefty price tags, it can be beneficial to know what you’re getting before you buy it. Sex machines and larger toys in particular should be researched thoroughly before you pick them up, just to make sure it’s exactly the toy that you’re looking for!

The MotorBunny sex machine is a more affordable version of the Sybian sex machine. It. Is. Intense. Most people who have used the MotorBunny swear by the power of it’s orgasms. They claim that this is something that you need to experience in your life. These orgasms are some of the most amazing that users have ever experienced. If you are in the market for a sex machine, you should absolutely look in to the MotorBunny. Not only is it epic but the attachments appeal to everyone, whether you prefer external or internal stimulation.

This machine has so many attachments, it might make your head spin. The unit comes with four attachments out of the box made of TPE. If you aren’t familiar with TPE, please note that it is porous and cannot be completely sterilized. Keep this in mind if you plan on sharing these toys. However, you can purchase additional attachments that are made of silicone that can be cleaned and sterilized for sharing purposes! The machine also boasts tools for the BDSM lovers as well! There are loops at the ends of the MotorBunny which makes forced orgasms and other bondage situations much more interesting.

With simple and easy to operate controls, the MotorBunny offers both a Twirl feature as well as a Buzz feature. The twirl moves the toy around in a circle for internal stimulation while the buzz hits the outer areas. The knobs are very responsive, meaning you don’t have to mess with things too much to get it to work the way you want it to. Be warned, however, the higher vibrations might be a bit too much for a beginner. Work your way up to the higher settings or risk ending up with a case of Jell-O legs.

The main downside of the MotorBunny (and the Sybian has the same problem) is that it’s noisy. What can you really expect from a bench sized sex toy? Just be aware of this if you’re planning to order this and you share your living space with someone who isn’t your partner. These toys are very loud and if you’re trying to keep your sexcapades quiet, we definitely recommend rethinking this purchase. But! If you live alone or with your partner or simply just don’t care who knows what you’re doing behind closed doors, the MotorBunny is a well loved, intense sex machine that’s sure to bring you the pleasure you’re looking for!

MALs Hot Product Alert: Impress Petite Rabbit Vibrator

Blog By M. Mitera

It can be really hard to find a good vibrator that gets the job done. There are so many options to choose from out there, it’s so difficult to settle on one specific design. We carry a lot of these products here at Manchester Adult Lifestyles and it can be intimidating standing in front of a wall of vibrators and having to pick one without any background about them. So we’re doing a hot products blog now, to showcase products that we think our customers will really like!

This time, we’re going to go over the Impress Petite Rabbit vibrator. While it’s nothing too crazy, standing at 7 inches (4.25 insert-able), this vibrator is one that can get you where you need to be quickly! Boasting twelve different functions, there’s definitely a setting for everyone with the Impress Petite. Not only that but the speed of the vibration is controlled by pressure sensitive pads on the sides of the handle. Yeah. Crazy, right? It also has a locking feature so if you find a speed you really like, you can push that button and the Impress Petite will continue to vibrate at that speed. It has a huge variety of settings so you’re sure to find at least one that you like.

Additionally, the Impress Petite is fully waterproof. Made of velvety silicone, please always remember to use a water based lube with silicone toys! It’s also easy to clean, whether you use warm soapy water or a toy cleaner. I also can’t forget to mention that this baby is quiet as hell so no worrying about that annoying buzzing that some vibrators have, making it impossible to focus on the task at hand. The bunny attachment halfway down provides clitoral stimulation as well, making this toy absolutely perfect for those customers who like both! Oh and before I forget… This thing is USB rechargeable so no more worrying about batteries. That’s probably one of the best parts about this toy!

Overall, we give this vibrator a 9/10. There’s really no complaints with it. It does a great job, it looks great, and it’s easy to put in a drawer or under the bed tote. The box that it comes in even makes a great spot for storage, made of a heavy duty cardboard with a magnetic lid. They really thought of everything with this particular vibrator and we can’t praise it enough. Check out our website for the Impress Petite Rabbit or stop by the store to see if we have some in stock!

The Appeal Of BDSM

Blog By M. Mitera

With many things being overdone, sex these days has begun to change. People are more apt to explore, constantly looking for new ways to enjoy themselves. The media has helped this trend of evolving sex by heavily promoting BSDM (standing for Bondage, Domination, Submission, and Masochism). This practice may seem alien and violent to some, definitely not something many would consider “normal”. But those who are involved with BDSM are able to find a new sense of freedom, independence, and confidence. Historically, those who were interested in BDSM were considered to have a medical illness. Because of the initial impression of pain, people had a negative response. Even though there were those who weren’t feeling the whips and chains idea of sex, curiosity and the primal instincts of humans took over.

We’ve already told you what BDSM stands for. But let’s break it down a little more so you can kind of understand the appeal a little bit more. The B stands for bondage, which involves one partner tying up the other with something like rope, chains, or other restraints. D stands for domination. This means one partner exaggerates the power they have over the other. Domination has a lot to do with the relationship between a slave and a master. S is for submission and sadism. While dominants enjoy having power over others, subs enjoy feeling powerless. In this role, the sub is usually receiving punishments by the dom. Finally, the M is for masochism. This is closely related to sadism except this is the submissive’s enjoyment of the pain and humiliation during play. It’s these aspects that make BDSM so appealing… The shift of power in roles can be a very pleasurable experience.

Practicing BDSM provides a new sense of meaning and independence. It allows people to take on a different persona than the one that they live every day. Those who get turned on by fantasy play will also love trying out BDSM, as it provides a stage to an ever changing performance. Many couples even reported that their feelings of trust and intimacy were deeper after practicing BDSM. By having to put your safety in the hands of another, the relationship grows much stronger.

BDSM allows people to do things that they wouldn’t normally be able to do in a safe environment. The aspect of role playing is extremely appealing to some. Being able to take on a different persona can be a huge turn on for some. It’s important to be open minded if your partner decides to bring this up to you as something that they’re in to. While it may seem a bit intense at first, the experience is one that is definitely worth having. So don’t knock it until you try it! For those interested in getting in to the BDSM scene, Manchester Adult Lifestyles has a ton of BDSM related toys so head on in to the shop and check it out!

Top Three Reasons Women Should Know Self Defense

Blog By M. Mitera

It’s wishful thinking to imagine a world where people don’t have to constantly look over their shoulders to make sure no one is following them. Unfortunately, it is mostly women who deal with the fear of going out in to the world alone. In 2014, the Criminal Victimization Board found that US residents over the age of 12 have experienced 5.4 million violent victimizations. This includes but isn’t limited to rape or sexual assault, simple assault, and aggravated assault. Women need to be more educated in how to protect themselves from an assailant and here are the top three reasons why.

In learning self defense, a woman will be able to not only protect herself but her family if necessary. Although men are supposedly the stronger sex, martial arts such as Bujustu teach those involved to fend of an attacker and then escape, rather than staying to fight. The goal is not to continue the altercation but to get away and find help as soon as possible. Another goal is to potentially disarm an attacker that is carrying a weapon. Most martial arts programs show students how to obtain a weapon from an attacker and use it to their advantage or at least to escape. While learning self defense doesn’t 100% assure your safety, this skill will drastically reduce the chances of you getting hurt or injured if you are attacked.

When learning self-defense, you are also taught discipline. This trait will transfer over to other parts of your life. You will begin to realize that you are a better parent, a better friend, a better worker, etc with this new found calmness. Self-defense has a lot to do with controlling breathing, staying relaxed, and to respond to situations instead of reacting to them. In the year 2018, we are surrounded by instant gratification. Self-defense doesn’t allow for this instant feeling of importance. It teaches patience and diligence, something that isn’t really taught in regular, every day life anymore. Self-defense tactics will not only help to keep you safe but will drastically improve your outlook on life, as you will constantly be working on a process that has no end.

If you’re not convinced to give some self-defense classes just yet, you should also know that learning self-defense can boost confidence. It teaches you that your life matters enough to fight for and so do the lives of your friends and families. Self-defense doesn’t care what gender you are, what your age is, or your physical strength. It will push you to be better than you ever thought you could be and this air of confidence might deter attackers in the first place. But at least you’ll know that you have the ability to defend yourself.

At MALS, we have a wide selection of self defense items available. We take our client’s safety very seriously and since we work with many people who work late in to the night, we want to make sure everyone is okay. If you have any questions about self-defense or want to look at our stock of self-defense items, just swing by the shop and let one of our associates show you! We are open seven days a week, Monday through Friday 10am-10pm, Saturday 10am to 9pm, and Sunday from 12am to 6pm!

Self Defense

Ladies, we have all had the unfortunate experience of going to your car at night after work and feeling a little anxious that there’s a creep lurking around the corner. Or even being home alone at night; a prime target for a break-in. Not everyone can or wants to carry a firearm, as they can be expensive and require regular cleanings. There are many self-defense options to make you feel safer and more in control in case you have to face an ugly situation.

Manchester Adult Life Styles believes in keeping you safe no matter the cost. Getting home safely is the #1 goal and we have plenty of products to achieve that.

  • Pepper Spray: We carry a few varieties including a spray, gel and foam.
  • Knuckle Key Chains: These chains are kept on your car keys and they are designed to be worn like a sort of ring to replace the old keys-between-your-knuckles trick. These are sharp, solid metal that will deter any sketchball from messing around.
  • Impact Batons: Impact batons are extendable metal staffs that are designed for personal safety. Our batons range in size from 16” to 21”. For maximum effectiveness, look for self-defense training classes that include batons.
  • Tasers and Stun Guns: A taser is another classic self defense tool that is effective, easy to use and non-lethal by incapacitating your target with an electrical shock. We also carry a “Zap cane” for elderly folks.

Although these products are of high quality and effective, the best practice for your own safety is to find local self-defense courses that teach you how to use these kinds of tools properly. Contact your local police department or self-defense school for information on classes. Here is a great article about prevention and hand-to-hand combat techniques: Basic Self-Defense Moves Anyone Can Do. Come visit Manchester Adult Life Styles today to pick up your newest self-defense tool!
