So now that you own the toy of your dreams you’re going to take care of it, right? Here are just a few tips from the loving crew at MaXXX Black to keep you and your loved one (your vibrator) living happily ever after.
1: Don’t Over Use… I know it sounds really silly, but, give it a break every half hour or so. Most vibrators are made with small motors, to give us small toys, but they can overheat with prolonged use. So if you have a long play ahead of you lay a few choices out to alternate with. Variety is the spice of life, you know.
2: Don’t be Power Greedy… Heavy Duty batteries are generally the way to go. Most toys will burn out if you are using alkaline or rechargeable batteries, this is due to their higher power and heat. The cheapies from the dollar shop are my faves.
3: Take Your Time… Please take the batteries out when your not using your vibrators, for two very good reasons. Firstly, if there are no batteries in your toy it won’t turn on at an inappropriate moment. Secondly, it reduces your chance of the batteries leaking & corroding the inside of your toy, which will definitely signal the end of its life. Plus, your batteries will last much longer.
4: Slippery Stuff… Now this is one that all of us have been caught out with, thinking that we were all above the law. DO NOT use silicone lubricants with silicone vibrators or cyberskin toys. It will break down the surface texture of your toy and you will be left with an ugly unusable dildo. Only use water based lubricants with these types of toys, and with the wonderful range of water based lubes that we have now you have no excuse.
5: R.E.S.P.E.C.T... Treat your toys with the dignity that they deserve. Use your vibes in the way it was made to be used, if its made for stimulation use it as such, if it is made for spanking, then go right ahead. Don’t pull on the cords, don’t drop them from heights, don’t tighten the caps to tightly and buy them candy and roses whenever possible.
6: Rub-a-dub-dub… Clean your toy before first use and preferably after each use with warm soapy water or alternately you can get toys cleaners that just need to be sprayed on. But if sharing your toys, always pop a condom on.
7: Periscope Down… Many toys are now made to be waterproof. It’s not terribly technical, but there is a little rubber ring placed where the two parts of the vibe join, thus creating a seal making your toy waterproof. If this ring cracks or snaps you no longer have a waterproof toy. So keep an eye on it and if you see any damage you now have a land loving toy on your hands.
Yours always, MaXXXie.
