If you are of the understanding that sex toys were mainly made up of vibrators and dildos you would be incorrect in your assumption. For those that take part in bondage and fetish activities, medical sex toys can be very appealing. Instead of comprising of the usual bondage and fetish gear of ankle and wrist restraints, blindfolds, bondage spreader bars, collars and gags to name but a few, medical sex toys derive directly from items associated more with the practice of medicine than the practice of sex. They can be used for playful fun and games, role play, cleansing and more extreme forms of pleasure/pain. The most popular medical sex toys are as follows:
1. Wartenberg Wheel
The Wartenberg Wheel is a pin wheel with a handle that is intended to be rolled over the skin. There are a number of different types of these instruments available ranging from light to severe depending upon the number of spikes included on the wheels and the number of pin wheels built-in.
2. Urethral Sounds
A urethral sound is an instrument especially intended for use by men. It is a metal stemmed instrument that you insert into the penis in order to experience pleasure and pain simultaneously. Urethral sounds are available up to a width of 17mm and can be pushed as far into the penis as the pleasure/pain threshold will allow.
Intended for either vaginal or anal use, speculums are made from either metal or plastic and allow either the anus or the vagina to be prised open with prongs to a leverage of the user’s choosing. They are also easy to keep clean after use.
4. Intimate Douche
Classed as a medical sex toy, a douche is a unisex device that uses water to cleanse the anal or vaginal areas that is both pleasurable and practical. Douches either come with one of more attachment, the number of holes on which determines what the flow of water will be into the chosen intimate area. An aluminium douche that screws into the shower head can provide a more powerful douche experience.
5. Breast Pumps
Breast pumps have cups on the end that go around the nipple and/or breast depending upon the size of the pump. A bulb is attached to this. Simply squeeze the bulb to extract the air away from the area surrounding the nipple and breast and temporarily extend the length of the nipple as well as increasing sensations in this area.
6. Glycerine Squirt
Metal glycerine squirts enable up to 200 centilitres of fluid to be deposited into the penis, vagina or anus through different nozzle ends. A variety of new sexual feelings can be experienced by using this type of medical adult toy.
7. Torture Skin Roller
Torture skin rollersare the ultimate in torture tools. A sturdy rubber grip handle is connected to a skin roller which contains spikes over its outer surface. Press down on the skin lightly to inflict a tingling sensation or more firmly which may result in considerable pain and blood being drawn.
8. Medical Irrigators
Manufactured from synthetic materials, medial irrigators help the individual to experience colonic irrigation at a much lower cost than having to book into a clinic which specialises in this kind of treatment. They usually consist of a jug or bag (for the water), a long pipe, a tap to control the flow of water and an attachment that fits onto the end of the pipe which is pierced with holes.
Perhaps more associated with bedroom role play, a stethoscope can be also be the ideal accompaniment if you are attending a fancy dress party as a doctor or a nurse and it isn’t included in the costume.
As with all sex toys medical adult toys are intended for pleasure between consenting adults.
