What Will Sex Toy Makers Come Up With Next?

I have worked for a sex toy retailer for almost six years. In these six years, I have been exposed to so many different styles of sex toys. I still wows me on what the sex toy manufacturers can come up with. Before I worked for the sex toy industry, I was not too familiar on the variety of adult products that were available. Most of the vibrators that individuals are familiar with are the life like looking vibrators that resemble a real penis, the rabbit style vibrators, and the pocket rockets. Sex toys have gone beyond the rabbit vibes or the pocket rockets. There are a multitude of toys that range from sex toys that are discreet and do not look like a sex toy, to a ultra powerful, and pricey for some, Sybian Sex Machine. One of my main job functions is to take photos of the new products and put them on the web site. My position has enabled me to get a first hand look at some of the most interesting adult products that are available on the market. Here are some examples of the most interesting sex toys that I have come across in my job based on product design and/or features.

For the individuals that stress the utmost importance in discretion, there are some products that resemble your every day item such as this one. The Incognito Lipstick Vibrator will go with any complexion. To operate the vibrator, you turn the base and surprise, surprise, you can turn on the multi-speed vibrations. Whether you are always on the go or want to truly conceal your preferred mode of pleasure, the Incognito vibrator is a very discreet style of vibrator.

The Oh Mi Bod G spot Vibrator will move your body to the music, no joke. This vibrator buzzes to the sound of your music! Between your rockin beats and good vibrations, this vibe can send you on your way to orgasmic heaven. The vibrator plugs right into your iPod, and once you turn on the music, the vibrator is activated. When you turn the volume wheel up, the intensity of the vibrations increase.

The iRide from Doc Johnson definitely makes the most interesting list of sex toys that I have worked with. For those who want the total hands free experience, the iRide may be your product of choice. The padded seat is curved up on both ends so you can rock it back and forth while you are enjoying your pleasure trip. This toy has a similar concept to the Sybian sex machine and enjoy hands free pleasure. However, the dildo is attached and not interchangeable. The iRide features two individual motors, one to stimulate the vaginal region and the other located for clitoral stimulation. The user can choose between three vibration intensities.

When you were a little kid, you may have had a rubber duckie that you played with in the bath tub. The rubber duckie that I am thinking of is not for any kid, and is strictly for adult use. The I Rub My Duckie is another product that I found to be very interesting. This cute little duck also moonlights as a vibrator. The I Rub My Duckie is waterproof, so you can add a wet and wild adventure to your tub or shower time. As innocent as the I Rub My Duckie appears, it purpose is for more sinfully delightful uses. The I Rub My Duckie features a single speed and are activated by pressing on the duckie’s back.

The We-Vibe II is another interesting sex toy. This product can be worn and used during sexual intercourse. This U shaped pleasure toy is inserted into your vagina to rest on your G-spot and the other end rests on your clitoris, providing dual stimulation. This product has two independent motors and has nine modes of vibration functions, from constant vibration to pulsating and escation modes. The WE-Vibe II conforms to your body and has no wires or straps that you have to hold. It is also designed to stay put, even while during sexual intercourse.

These toys are just examples of some of the most interesting sex toys that I have seen in my job. It is truly exciting to see what the manufacturers come up with. With all the adult toys on the market, it is not a surprise that the manufacturers always try to come up with something new and different to spark the interest of the pleasure seeking consumer. In the end, all of the products have one singular goal…to give you an unforgettable orgasm.

Understanding Occupational Therapy

Much of what we know about proper practices and methodology in the world of occupational therapy is advanced by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA). AOTA establishes the guidelines for practitioners in the United States. It publishes these guidelines, as well as general information about the practice, in their publication “Framework: Domain and Process.”

The most recent edition, the third edition, was released in 2008. The Framework is a guide for practitioners to assess patients’ needs and help them find better solutions to achieving their goals. It provides the structure for this assessment in three basic steps: Evaluation, Intervention, and Targeting of Outcomes.

Understanding the Framework will allow you to get the most out of your relationship with your medical professional and your treatment. By equipping yourself within the Framework, you can better achieve your goals.


Evaluation is the first part of the discovery process. On paper, the evaluation portion consists of finding out what a patient has done and is able to do. Your practitioner will want to find out what sorts of jobs you’ve held in the past, how you were able to perform those jobs, and whether or not your environment, coworkers, own work ethics, or outside factors contributed to your success or failure at that job. Your doctor might speak to you, people you’ve worked with, or family members to get a clearer picture of what is going to be suitable for you as a worker.


According to the AOTA’s Framework, intervention is a collaborative process. After the interviews, you and your practitioner will work together to devise a plan that utilizes your personal strengths in the job market. Part of this plan is finding a compromise between your personal goals and the practical applications of this plan.

Intervention is an attempt to change some habit or action that previously kept you from success. Identifying unwanted or non-vital habits and replacing them with more desirable habits in a safe environment with lots of outside support helps increase the chances that these habits will be maintained as you move into the workforce.

Targeting of Outcomes

Occupational therapy acknowledges that adjusting to the workforce is an ongoing process. It might take multiple plans, or multiple attempts, before the original goals of the practitioner and client are met. This section of the Framework is meant to allow the doctor and patient to modify their approach and change any aspects of the evaluation or intervention plan.

For some people, occupational therapy is a single interaction between client and practitioner that creates a habit. For others, it is the beginning of a lifelong process, with doctor and patient constantly working in tandem to achieve ever-changing goals. In either situation, the hard work of both the specialist and patient leads to success. An understanding of this relationship can help navigate the varied decision-making involved in the day-to-day practice of occupational therapy. The Framework highlights the value of this relationship and can be a useful tool.

Three Reasons Why Orthopedic Rehab Is Helpful

If you have ever had a surgery or serious injury, you know that it can be physically exhausting to recover properly. Most surgeries or major traumas require specific exercises and protocols. Orthopedic rehab is designed to deal specifically with injuries involving the musculoskeletal system. Issues in this field often include sports accidents, such as torn tendons and broken bones, tumors, and even infections. Following a recovery protocol specific to your injury and operation can help you to recover faster and more fully. Here are three reasons why.

Regain Function

After a serious injury or medical condition, our bodies often attempt to compensate for the trauma. For example, when a person limps, it is an attempt to take pressure off of a damaged body part. As a result of this natural compensation, the muscles and tendons surrounding the injured area can often weaken or atrophy from lack of use. This is further exacerbated following an operation. Orthopedic rehab helps the patient focus on strengthening the repaired body part and the area surrounding it. Without a directed recovery, most patients will continue to favor the injury, resulting in a lifelong limp, hitch, crook, or other physical abnormality.

Prevent Injury

As discussed above, the human body will tend to protect a damaged area by shifting the workload to other limbs, tendons, or muscles. Even after the area has been surgically repaired, the human body will continue trying to shield it. If the body does not re-learn that the damaged body part is okay, the overuse of other areas could result in further accidents. This example is often seen in athletes with an injured leg or foot; in an attempt to protect the weakened area, the athlete puts more force into their cuts, pivots, or jumps with their good leg. This can result in damage to the strong leg or foot if too much strain is placed on it. Conversely, if the surgically repaired area is never re-strengthened, it is more apt to suffer the same failure as before through normal use. Orthopedic rehab can help patients regain the strength lost through trauma and an operation.

Avoid Surgery

In some cases, orthopedic rehab can help patients suffering from physical trauma avoid an operation altogether. This can be achieved through directed exercises or by altering how a person performs physical tasks. In the case of a weak back, a therapist might work with the patient on how to sit, stand, sleep, and bend over. The proper use of the back, coupled with specific exercises designed to strengthen the weakened area, can reduce the amount of pain a patient is feeling. In many cases, this approach can entirely solve any issues a patient is having, rendering surgery unnecessary.

In conclusion, orthopedic rehab can be helpful in resolving a number of physical ailments. Patients should wholeheartedly work with their physical therapists for a better recovery experience.
