Guide: How To Clean & Care For Your Fleshlight Toys

Monday, November 21st, 2011

You’ve taken home one of the best men’s pleasure products ever but there’s a few tips for keeping it in the best possible condition. Here are our steps for Fleshlight Clean and Care…

How To Clean Your Fleshlight

  1. After use remove the superskin fleshlight insert from the canister and run hot tap water through to remove any deposits or dirt. Rinse the exterior of the sleeve as well.
  2. Do NOT use soap, abrasive cleaners, or harsh chemicals like bleach on your Fleshlight. Hot water is enough to rinse it thoroughly.
  3. Shake off excess water and spray a generous amount of Fleshwash cleaner to the inside and outside of the sleeve.
  4. For the best results allow to air dry by placing sleeve on a lint-free towel. For a quick dry solution slide a lint-free towel through the Fleshlight from one end to the other, and if placing back in the shell right away, leave the end caps off or loose so air can circulate through.
  5. It’s best to let your Fleshlight dry completely before placing back into the shell. If it remains wet in spots the material can discolour.
  6. To properly re-position the insert, reach through the small end and pull the insert down into place.

How To Care For Your Fleshlight

Sometimes after cleaning the superskin material can feel a little tacky. Bringing the Fleshlight’s material back to new is simple. A little cornstarch, or the Fleshlight Renewing Powder will restore the surface texture of the toy and protect it for long term use.

  1. Use powders after cleaning and drying your Fleshlight, but before it goes back into it’s shell.
  2. Distribute enough powder onto your fleshlight (inside and out) so that it is completely coated in a thin layer.
  3. Place the insert back into the shell and enjoy as usual.

So that’s it. Easy isn’t it? Both the Fleshwash cleaner and Fleshlight Renew Powder are available in-store and online from MaXXX Black.

NEW Products: Fleshlight Renew & Fleshwash Now In Store

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

New to MaXXX Black are two products designed to keep you or your man’s fleshlight toys in peak performing condition.

Fleshlight have become the world’s number one selling men’s sex toys not just because they’re a little bit blokey, but ultimately because of the patented material and pattens on the inside sleeve of the toy – that’s where the fun is you can say. This highly realistic ‘cyberskin’ style material is brilliant, but over time and with extended use the surface of the Fleshlight and Fleshjack toys may become a little tacky, which can sometimes be made worse by using cheaper lubricants or soaps with the toys.

So Fleshlight introduced us to their clean and care line, and we liked it so much we brought it into the store…

Fleshlight Fleshwash

Fleshwash

Fleshwash Anti-Bacterial Toy Cleaner is a must for any Fleshlight owner. This 4oz spray-on cleaner uses the powerful anti-bacterial ingredient, Triclosan to fight bacteria and keep your Fleshlight clean and sanitary.

EVENTS: MaXXX & The Imperial Hotel Erskineville

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Many moons ago, when MaXXX Black was just emerging on King Street, and the world was pre-Obama and pre-pre-Julia, MaXXX proudly sponsored several events and gigs at the Imperial Hotel Erskineville. Then they renovated, and we renovated, and well the story gets boring until now…

MaXXX Black is set to continue our tradition of sponsoring local events and groups, and especially ACON. And it all starts THIS WEEK. From Tuesday 15th November we’ll be putting up some cheeky and sometimes delicious prizes for two of the Imperial Hotel’s most popular mid-week gigs:

BINGAY

Gallery: Cartoon Princesses As You’ve Never Seen Them Before!

Monday, November 14th, 2011

What better combination of art forms is there than a cartoon Princess and the sex appeal of tattoos?

Well, if you’re a Disney geek with tattoos (or a Disney geek who appreciates them), then there is nothing better. So when DeviantARTist Telegrafix aka Timothy John Shumate (who is also a tattoo artist) whips up some tattoo-friendly designs inspired by Disney, we’re bound to pay attention.

New Products: Organic Flavoured Lubricants from HYDRA!

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Anyone who has shopped with MaXXX Black knows just how much we LOVE natural personal lubricants. Free from the chemicals, additives and crap that so many supermarket brands have in them, natural and organic lubricants deliver a healthy, sexier, and safer experience  –  and now they’ve just gotten REALLY interesting…

From Intimate Organics (makers of one of our most poular lubes, HYDRA) comes six new lubricants, all with unique and even delicious new flavours. Forget the usual peppermint and cherry, the team at IO have created flavours and aromas we actually want to taste…

Of course we’ve already had a little taste test, and the falvours are not only genuine, they’re lovely!

The fragrance of each evokes the flavours before they even meet your lips, and since this whole range is Aspartame-Free, that yucky aftertaste is a thing of the past. They gently warm your skin for a few second on contact too, so they’ll never feel cold or clammy – just smooth and sexy, the way lubes should be.

New Toys: The PicoBong Range is here!

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

We first heard about PicoBong many months ago, when the colourful summer-themed range of vibes was still a twinkle in LELO’s eyes. Yes, that’s right, PicoBong is a new brand of toys from that wonderful toy maker LELO. Since it’s now been in-store for a couple of weeks, we thought it might be time to introduce you to the whole range….

Who Is Picobong?

From the team behind Swedish designer brand LELO, the new PicoBong brand builds on its flagship’s extensive experience and knowledge of creating high quality, sophisticated products, but with younger men and women in mind, and for those looking for a more affordable price.

With a wide-spread network of creatives that span across California, Shanghai, Sydney (that’s MaXXX!) and Hong Kong, PicoBong embodies a global charisma and the very latest in style trends.

PicoBong reckons they’re paving the way for a 21st century sexual revolution advocating healthy, safe and responsible adventurism, personal awareness and discovery of self (and others).  Like Lelo, the PicoBong team believes in promoting greater personal sexual exploration and acceptance. According to the company they “promise to marinate you in wit, shock you with a risqué sense of humour and keep you on your toes with an endless cache of innovation”.

So what do they look like?

There are six products in the range, each coming in fun colours and perfectly packaged for a cheeky gift.

With dual vibrations, multiple uses, and endless enjoyment – Mahana features two vibrating pleasure points and a unique form that offers extra versatility to those who let their imaginations run wild.
Honi Mini Vibe in Cerise

Sometimes the smallest things can give the most joy – but don’t be fooled by Honi’s petite frame, because it packs a wallop and offers you a world of pleasure on a string.
Kiki Vibe in Blue

THE C-SPOT VIBE – Right on target, when pleasure is the aim – Kiki’s curved pleasure point with flattened tip allows users to apply focus and pressure directly to the C-spot.
The Finger Vibe – Fun at your fingertips – Ipo is a cute little finger vibe that lets users focus vibrations where they are wanted most, turning ev ery touch, tickle, and stroke into a singular sensation.
Koa Ring Vibe in Black
KOA
Couples Ring – Koa is the ideal toy for couples; a flexible accessory for him, a mighty climax for her, and style that borders on fancy dress – has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Tano Plug Vibe in Purple
Plug Vibe – Tano is a specially-designed pleasure plug that puts users directly in the rumble seat. They say that behind every great man, there is a great woman – and she just might be holding a Tano Plug Vibe!

What Makes Them Good?

Powerful and Near-Silent Motor

Housed inside every PicoBong™ is a daring little motor which certainly packs a wallop! Not only is the motor strong enough to knock your socks off, but it does so in the quietest way. Perfect for those with nosy roommates.

12 Vibe Patterns and Multiple Speeds

An amazing 12 different vibration patterns can be enjoyed over multiple speeds, providing a spice-based cliché concerning variety and life!

2 Hours of Play from a Single AAA battery

Each PicoBong™ requires just one AAA battery for 2 hours of bliss.

Made with Body-Safe, FDA Approved Silicone

PicoBong™ toys are made with the highest levels of quality and safety in mind, which is why we only use body-safe, FDA approved silicone and ABS plastic.

Easy-to-Use Control Interface

With an exciting array of possibilities for every toy, who needs confusing buttons or dials?! PicoBong’s™ 2-button interface is easy to operate and totally user-friendly, ensuring nothing gets between you and a good time.

Fully Waterproof to a Depth of 1 Meter

Not only are PicoBong™ toys easy to clean, but they are also ideal accessories for the bath, shower, swimming pool – even a babbling brook, if that’s your thing. PicoBong™ toys offer versatility that is perfect for use whenever, wherever and with whomever’s got your fancies tickled.

The Sex Coach: Allow Some Self-Indulgence!

Friday, November 11th, 2011

One of the absolute keys to good sex is the ability to let go, to surrender to the experience.

I’m going to speak directly to the ladies here, because the women are the ones who have more trouble in this area. Yet it’s actually more important that the woman let go for the couple to be able to reach heightened states of arousal and pleasure.

Essentially what women need to do is allow for self-indulgence.

Now there are some ‘princesses’ out there who are all about self-indulgence: me, me, me. I’m not talking about them. I’m talking about all those women I see in my clinic and at workshops and in the street and in the school playground, etc, who can’t allow themselves to indulge. Especially sexually.

Sex as letting go, opening up, being real, actually requires you to allow for self-indulgence. As a woman it requires you to yield to your partner, to allow him to pleasure you and take you places of delicious wonder and ecstacy.

Men love to pleasure their woman. They love to take their partner to wonderful places. Men tell me over and over and over again how the best thing about sex is giving their partner pleasure, that there’s nothing better than seeing her in the throes of sexual pleasure.

Yet so many women hold themselves back from experiencing this pleasure. So many women hold back from allowing themselves the indulgence of letting him give them that pleasure.

Which is such a shame! Because this is what it takes. This is what Tantra is about. A woman allows her partner to pleasure her, she allows him to be a man, she allows herself to be a woman and surrender to delicious pleasure. The more she lets herself go in this way, the more pleasure there is for her, and therefore the more pleasure there is for him.

This is a completely different approach to the more common, ‘sex as duty’ or ‘sex as stress relief’ or ‘sex as performance’ approaches to sex that we have in society. This is ‘sex as letting go’, ‘sex as indulgence and heightened states of ecstasy’. This is truly good loving.

If as a woman you have trouble letting go to this extent, if you can’t allow yourself this indulgence, ask yourself why. Is it that you have blocks to pleasure? Is it that you have false beliefs about the purpose of sex? Are you buying into false beliefs about the roles of men and women in sex? Do you not really trust your partner enough? Do you not trust yourself enough?

If you do want to open up more to self-indulgence and allow for sexual pleasure, then please come and see me for private sessions, or attend my women’s workshop, Luscious Woman.

We’ll get you indulging again. You deserve it!

Advice: Men Can Have Multiple Orgasms Too…

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Pursue something that will benefit both of you – discover your guy’s multi-orgasmic response! While a bit of an ambitious venture, the rewards are great, especially in that the ejaculatory control he must develop will make for longer, sweeter sex and increased sexual confidence in the sack. Not a bad way to improve intimacy, eh?

Now the whole process of becoming multi-orgasmic really boils down to a male’s interest and ability to explore his potential for such. There are some really good resources out there, like Mantak Chia’s The MultiOrgasmic Male and www.multiples.com, that will get him well on his way to cosmic bliss. There are, however, few reads focusing exclusively on what female lovers can do to help him in this cause. So here’s what you can do to assist him in his efforts…

Understanding His Response
First things first, you need to know what’s going on with his body before you can be of any use. As he becomes aroused and erect, he’s passing through the excitement phase of his sexual response cycle, no problem. But it’s the next part that involves the ultimate control challenge – the contractile phase or emission phase.

Here, as his prostate contracts and empties semen into his urethra, he has to make a major decision: To carry on and enjoy the immediate gratification of ejaculation, or slow the pace and postpone maximum fulfillment, in hopes of multiple orgasms.

If he decides to hold off, he’ll stay in this contractile phase, experiencing a series of prostate contractions, a.k.a. pelvic orgasms or “contractile-phase orgasms.” In continuing to hold off, he’ll need to stay as close as possible to ejaculatory inevitability, that point of no return, without shooting a load.

What You Can Do
Before participating in any male multi-o partner exercise, both of you need to realize that this quest is not about pleasuring in the immediate sense. Some orgasmic sacrifices will have to be made for long-term benefits, and it’s important that neither of you become frustrated with the process or each other. Be sure to talk to each other about what’s expected of one another, reviewing the resources he’s using together.

Next, determine words both of you will use to signal when you should stop and start stimulation. Furthermore, use a condom, as this can help him maintain an erection and postpone ejaculation, making the process a bit easier for him. Lastly, during most sex acts and in many positions, you can push on his Million Dollar Point, the indentation on his perineum just in front of his anus, while asking him to contract his PC muscle. Doing this when he’s about to ejaculate can help to stop the ejaculatory reflex.

Where to Begin…
Giving him a hand-job is the best place to start. Using an un-lubricated hand, stimulate his penis, asking him for pointers on how he’d like to be stroked. As he approaches the point of ejaculatory inevitability, he needs to tell you to stop. After his arousal levels have fallen, he should ask you to resume.

Repeat these simple steps several times over several sessions, eventually using lubricant when he’s ready. More advanced stages of this exercise involve slowing the pace or changing your stroke rather than stopping entirely. Naturally, the two of you will graduate to having you provide the same kind of stimulation, only with your mouth on his penis, repeating the same start-stop steps.

In eventually advancing to intercourse after a series of manual and oral sex sessions, sit on his thighs and rub his erect penis on your inner thighs as he takes deep, relaxed breaths. After teasing him for a bit, take a break, then play with his penis again, this time against your pubic area. After another rest, rub his erection along your outer vaginal lips, pausing to put the head of the penis close to the opening. Continue to repeat these steps until he can go through the entire exercise without anxiety or the need to ejaculate.

Once at that level, place his erect penis at your vaginal opening. After a few seconds, place it about one inch into the vagina. Continue doing so, moving slowly, until he is completely inside of you. You need to stay still and let him be there for 15 minutes. If he loses his erection, contract your vaginal muscles (PC muscle) tight enough to get him hard again.

With practice, you’ll eventually be able to work to a sexual position that involves slow thrusting, slowly increasing movement and always letting him feel in control of the pace. Do not start thrusting to satisfy yourself! Repeat in different positions, eventually with both of you moving.

Note: Every man has the ability to develop his ejaculatory control and to possibly realize multiple orgasms. Furthermore, it’s best achieved in a positive, relaxed atmosphere. Multiple orgasms are not going to happen if you’re out for a quickie, or if you’re feeling rushed and stressed. This is a process that involves time, effort, and dedication. The results should be well worth all of it.
