NSFW Sunday Fingerblast: Wet For Her’s Sex Toys By & For Lesbians

Last Wednesday evening, because we are cooler than you, we attended a special Go Magazine sponsored “press reception” for French sex toy company Wet For Her, the first sex toy company created by lesbians specifically for lesbians.  Even the hot chicks in that photo are lesbians!

Before I go on, let me get this out of the way: there was a lot of vodka at this event. There were probs many other beverages as well, but I stick to what I know which is The Goose.

Anyhow, some brief background on this groundbreaking company with sexy packaging and cute t-shirts: these three hot French ladies — Alice Derock, Joanne Magris and Emilie Perello — were sitting around one day, probs eating crepes and drinking wine by the river as French ladies are wont to do, all like, “wtf, why are most sex toys designed by straight guys and why do they all look like penises?” (I would also like to add, why do all major sex toy company names sound so aggressively tropical/”wild” like Pleasure Dome and California Exotics and why are they made out of cheap toxic plastic and why do they break all the time. Unfortunately I was not there to share these insights, but they did just fine without them.)

“Why should straight men profit from and drain income from the lesbian community?” these ladies asked. WHY INDEED. Especially when ladies can make shit like this.

From a feature on WET FOR HER in this month’s Go Magazine:

“It was like a wasteland. You’d walk down aisle after aisle in store after store and never see anything identifiably lesbian; there was no lesbian gesture,’ [Alice] says. ‘This is why I created my first product. The idea was to take something specifically lesbian, something that lesbians do — like penetrate with fingers as a tool — and stylize it and make it elegant and useful, and symbolic.’

The point the women make has political as well as practical ramifications: they feel the prevailing attitude in the sex toy industry towards women is that ‘anything will do — just throw them a toy and adapt it.’ The perception is that women’s sexuality in general and lesbian sexuality in particular are not that important. It’s almost like ‘Just give them any old thing that you’ve got.’ Even in gay sex shops, it’s the same thing. They mean gay men. Lesbians are never, or rarely, included.”

So what happened after this revelation? We can only imagine and we imagine that then there was a musical montage, probs to Paolo Conte’s Via Con Me, and a lot of special magic and before you know it these ladies had created GIANT FINGERBLASTERS! And now they have been in America, hosting events and meeting cool people like us! Here’s one of the creators showing off the wares:

Yup. They come in two sizes and leave your thumbs free to do some clit stuff. They also sell lube and other stuff see:

The French girl told us about how the material is all special and when you’re wearing it, you can still feel your lover’s orgasmic muscle contractions through the toy. This made us laugh a lot like virgins, at which point Grace asked if anyone wanted to participate in a race of the “eggs” (vibrating toys operated via remote) and we did. My fingers pop in for like half a second here, watch for the black nail polish!:

Basically, these girls have something pretty fuckin’ awesome going on, I mean they even have boyshorts, so they are armed and ready to attack the lesbian market and this is a really really cool company and I love vodka.

You can buy your own magic fingers, get lube and support lesbian-on-lesbian sex toy lovin’ at their website or at babeland or blowfish!

    The fingers immediately reminded me of “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues.” Even though I haven’t read it since high school and they are huge fingers, not huge thumbs.

    Okay, although I applaud these women for taking a dream and running with it, I have a few issues with a “lesbian sex toy” and all this talk about how the sex toys available don’t take lesbians into consideration:

    1. They’re obviously talking about mainstream sex toy shops and haven’t looked into companies like Vixen, etc., who really take what non-bio men (which includes lesbians, but also includes a lot more folks than just lesbians) want into consideration when making their toys.

    2. Any talk of “special” materials concerns me….are these silicone toys (the only proven non-porous soft toy material) or something “else’?

    3. THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A LESBIAN SEX TOY. Here’s what I mean – that definition is problematic because it basically says “lesbians should only like to have sex like this, and if they like anything else, it’s wrong.” My partner owns a sex toy store, and she works hard to break the idea that any sex toy is for a “specific” person. The saying is “what’s a lesbian sex toy? Any toy being used by someone who identifies as a lesbian”.

    So if a lesbian wants to use a strap-on realistic looking dildo, that’s a lesbian sex toy. If a lesbian wants to use a cock ring, that’s a lesbian sex toy, if a lesbian wants to use a big anal plug, that’s a lesbian sex toy….get it? It keeps folks from feeling like “this is what I SHOULD want” and gets them to realize what they might want and to explore new things….and isn’t that the goal of sex toys?

    I have always always always ALWAYS (always) wondered the same thing: why are sex toys only shaped like dicks?? INsomuch to the point that I actually went out and filmed a documentary about lesbian porn and lesbian sex. All the answers about strap ons i got were very vague and nondescript “oh, it doesn’t mean that there’s a man in the room…it’s just the appropriate shape for sex” etc. etc. and while i get where they’re going (penetration, et al) is this really our only option? in my experience (as a closeted/bored college girl and now happily wifed up), penises hit cervixes and fingers hit g-spots…’nuff said.
