YES NO MAYBE: Intergalactic Aliens and Magical Dildos

Welcome to a segment called YES NO MAYBE! During one of my day jobs, I encounter a lot of sex toys. What I’ve learned from this is that there are some SMART insightful and ingenious sex toys out there — that think about usability and variety and bodies. And then there are sex toys that… have not… exactly been thought out. And then there are toys that are just beyond anything I could have imagined and that’s equally exciting. This is where YES NO MAYBE comes in! Let’s collectively share our thoughts in the comments about the following toys! Tell me if you’d give an ENTHUSIASTIC YES to a toy! Is it something you’d put on or in your bod? A giant MAYBE to a toy we’re unsure about? Or maybe you’d vote HELL NO to all of them!

Autostraddle and I are not endorsed by any of these toys or companies. This segment isn’t meant to shame any toy or company that exists–like if it’s out there it’s because someone’s weird wild brain imagined it and THAT alone should be celebrated! Let’s not yuck anyone’s yum while spilling if yes, we want a rainbow silicone popsicle in our bits.

Dildo Wand: Sailor Girl

Magical homos rejoice! “Moon, Prism, Power! Are you fighting evil by moonlight and winning love by daylight? Then you need this Dildo Wand!” Who is the biggest nerd on Autostraddle Dot Com and are you willing to PROVE it with this Sailor Moon inspired dildo? I, personally, am not a Sailor Moon fan but I will watch any porn this toy is featured in. Also, unrelated to anime but related in nerdom: I really need you all to see this t D20 Silicone Ball Gag. I am suddenly yearning for a kinky Dungeons and Dragons scene with this ball gag and I don’t even play the game.

Steel Claws

TIRED: The debate about whether or not people can fuck with long nails.
WIRED: Long nails as sex toys.

I’m not a cat person but judging from how many of my fellow queers are, I can only imagine many of you have fantasized about being a human scratching posts. Now your masochistic/sadistic dreams can come true!

Velvet Thruster

I’m sorry, but this is the GAYEST name for a sex toy that I’ve ever come across. This toy doesn’t vibrate, it thrusts forward. So if you’re a fan of penetration and want 140 FUCKIN’ THRUSTS PER MINUTE this is the toy for you. It extends three inches each FUCKIN’ THRUST. It was designed by aerospace engineers who finally decided to put their degrees to good use. This kitty purrs like a boat and I would like to apologize to my upstairs neighbors in advance.

The Beaded D.P. Rabbit

Who says you can’t have it all! Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too! It’s Taurus season damn it! Live a life of indulgence! Get it all! YOLO! This toy vibrates-internally and clitorally, it rotates with the classic textured beaded base, and has vibrating anal beads to boot. Is this toy going to be an overwhelming amount of sensation? Probably!!!

Screw You Dildo

I don’t really know what to say about this toy. Inspired. Beautiful. Industrial. I’ve barely lifted a hammer but my body is ready for some hardcore construction work.

Saucy Vibrator

Alright intergalactic queer alien weirdos, here’s a vibrator for all your getting off needs. The harder you squeeze Saucy, the harder it vibrates. I think this vibe is so freakin’ cute. It also sounds like it would work great. If someone could just beam this down on my nightstand for tonight that’d be wonderful, please and thank you.

Avant Trans Pride Dildo

Why yes, I am trans. Thank you for asking.

  1. The claws are very pretty but as a sub with dermatographia (light scratches turn into red welts on my skin) I get itchy just looking at them.

    • My wife has dermatographia too!! She always has fun explaining it to people and watching their reactions.

  2. Velvet Thruster, absolutely the best name but Eeeeee!

    140 3-inch thrusts per minute, that’s not my definition of velvety.

    I’m glad they didn’t meld that with the “Screw You” dildo.

    Oh I wish I hadn’t thought of that, now I’ll have nightmares.

    • Why did you have to type that? I read your comment, and of course the first thought that came to mind had to be “Would it be appropriately named Screw You if it only thrusts, without any sort of spin?” followed immediately by “clockwise or counterclockwise?”

      …. There are moments I hate how I over-analyze everything.

  3. Hard yes to the steel claws. And honestly, almost all of these are pretty intriguing.

  4. “I’ve barely lifted a hammer but my body is ready for some hardcore construction work.”

    Thank you for releasing this phrase into the universe.

  5. Yay someone thinks of industrial ladies, KMFDM for life, Screw You for life

    Seriously wish clockwise/anticlockwise rotation was implemented though.

    On another note what can i do when i really don’t like baby colours, and they annoy me, and baseline human replication process in general is the one single very last thing i would reference in my heraldry, and that last place is tied with pedobear and goatse? If only it was up to me – i’d so replace them with metallic platinum standing for alien fucking radiant light, possibly throwing in the whole metallic spectrum, gold and silver standing for the cultural solar and lunar.

  6. While not the exact same ones, my girlfriend has very similar steel claws and uh A WHOPPING 10/10 FROM ME!! You want good scratches but have trimmed your own nails to make other activities a bit more pleasurable or safer? uHH these are a GREAT CHOICE !! would recommend ! got a set (just one hand) at pleasurechest for like, $15, and they’re pliable enough you can make them fit any size finger! go have fun!! bleed a little! godspeed!
