Books & Toys: Midori Recommends...
There are so many books, guides, toys, and resources today, 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 and not with others. I have set up the affiliate relationships with these stores because I love what they do and want to support them.
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.
Exceptional quality ropes made by an ethical, kind company in Seattle. They carry hemp, bamboo, silk, cotton and even electro conductive rope. Twisted Monk is dedicated to safety above all else and take it very seriously. In the event that you have to cut your Twisted Monk rope due to an emergency, they will replace it
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.
