Books & Toys: Midori Recommends...

There are so many books, guides, toys, and resources today… I know it can be overwhelming. 

What are the best sex and kink books to read for your needs? Which are the best pleasure toys for you? What ropes should you buy? Which lube would be best for you? Where do you find responsible, safe shops that understand and respect you and your needs? 

While I can’t be with you when you shop, I can help you with recommendations. You deserve to shop at stores that best suit your needs, so here you’ll find several retailers that I trust and personally shop at.

I do have affiliate relationships with several of these stores, although not with all. I have set up affiliate relationships with these retailers because I love what they do and want to support them. This also allows me to offer discounts from time to time. (So keep an eye on social media or my newsletter.)

There are articles and videos with my recommendations in my Resources section.
If you have specific questions you can join my Office Hours on Patreon to ask me questions!

What’s my criteria?

I recommend because…  I have tried it and loved it. Or sometimes, a lover or trusted friend raves about it. But always, the ingredients or information are quality.

If I don’t list it here… Often it’s because I’ve not tried it yet, so I have no opinions. Maybe I tried it and didn’t like it, but I could see how someone else might like it. Sometimes I don’t like the material it’s made of or the content of the writing. I won’t bother to list things if it’s inferior to similar products out there.  And I will never recommend things from producers whose ethics I know are questionable. 

If you have a question on any of these products I recommend, or didn’t recommend, feel free to ask me!

 I’ve tried several “ride-on” style sex toys, and this is my winner. Yes, I own one. Deep rumble, excellent design, and can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world with internet connection. Long distance play or solo fun!  When you’re ready for the big investment, this is worth it.
