What is a Wartenberg Wheel?

A Wartenberg Wheel, also commonly referred to as a Wartenberg Pinwheel or Wartenberg neurowheel, is a medical device designed for neurological use. The wheel was originally designed by Robert Wartenberg to test nerve reactions and sensitivity as it rolled systematically over the skin. The device is a stainless steel pinwheel that delivers a tingling sensation as the prickly pins roll across the skin. The sensations range from tickling to pain depending on the applied pressure and as such have been picked up by the BDSM community as a sensation sex toy.

Why shouldn’t I use Silicone Lube with Silicone Toys?

By | Sex Snippets | No Comments
It’s all about chemistry. Silicone lubricants are perfect for sex toys made of glass, ceramic or hard plastic but it is important to keep them away from toys made of, or containing, silicone. The problem is that the only thing silicone bonds with is silicone and your lube and toys will want to become one. The lube will start to solidify onto the toy and the toy will try to melt into the personal lubricant. This will most likely result in a gummy texture over your favourite sextoys. For the same reason silicone toys should not be kept together as this may result in a many ended mega dildo. Then again that might be just what you’re into.
