The UC Santa Barbara graduate and author of Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men (well before the Queer Eye guys showed up), was nice enough to give us a Top 10 Sex accessories list that we are sure you would rather read than this intro...

HoneyToes’ Top 10 Sex Paraphernalia for the Adventuresome Spirit of any Orientation

10. A flogger, crop, cane or other such stingy fun corporeal gear—When I asked my friend Barb what her number one sex accoutremont would be, she stipulated that when it comes to her favorites, there is “Sushi” and then there’s the bean burrito, a staple for any pure bred Californian. So at number ten, I include one of her and my own “sushi” items, because maybe they aren’t quite right for number one, but on some days, when I need a little rough and tumble, a good flogger or crop will suit me fine; for Barb it’s a cane. Because the buttocks, the inner thighs, and the shoulders where we hold so much of that unnecessary stress, can take a beating and love it now and again. At the very least, a nice smack of the hand on the sweet spot (that place where the buttocks meet the thighs) can turn on any boy or girl when done just right. Note: Educate yourself before playing with such toys.

Many of us have a submissive streak somewhere that when worked by a partner in the land of make-your-own-fantasy can shift you out of that everyday take-yourself-way-too-seriously mode into one blissful ride to the land of oneness and simplicity. What your partner does or what you do to your partner whilst under restraint is another story…make it juicy.
