I've had a dry spell the last few years, but have contacted some old friends in hopes that I can do some catching up. I've had a positive response, but both my friends are fairly large so I thought I would buy a toy to practice with before I see them (I've shrunk a little during my dry spell). While I was shopping it started me thinking about a few things: 1. Why is it that larger vibrators (anything over about 7 inches) are never pretty? Smaller ones comes in pretty colours with cool designs. Sometimes they are shaped in a slightly interesting way. Larger ones always seem to be shaped like penises (usually balls and all), and coloured like penises. While I think this is in fact pretty on a real penis, it just doesn't work for me when it comes to vibes. Why can't I have a vibe that is both pretty AND large? 2. What's with the suction caps on the bottom of some of them? I mean, I know what they're SUPPOSED to be used for, but does anyone really use them (rhetorical question)? 3. Why are most of the larger vibes so squishy? If I had a guy who was as squishy as some of those vibes I would get rid of him pretty fast. Why do the makers of toys think we want them squishy? Or maybe other women do want squishy vibes and I'm just strange for wanting them to be hard. So what's going on? I can't be the only woman wanting these things in a larger vibe. I think that maybe the biggest customers in the large vibe market are males buying for their wives or girlfriends. Maybe the makers are actually catering for male fantasies, rather than female wants and needs. What do you (males and females) think?
