Toy Fashion; an aesthetics poll!

catsin catsin
While I enjoy a natural looking dildo such as Tex for my strap-on play, I otherwise despise using a toy that imitates skin color and anatomy. I typically desire unassuming toys such as the Leaf line by swan.

I'm wondering what the general preference of toy fashion is around your parts!! (see what I did there)

I don't like realistic toys. I think my partner also appreciates that I don't like them because using nonrealistic toys helps to make it clear that I don't intend to use any toys to "replace" him (as strange as that may sound).

I don't mind the other toys that aren't realistic, but I'm pretty into a few things and those toys just don't cut it. I have 6 realistic dildos, a couple of wands and a few glass toys. But the Tantus and Vixskin products get the most use.

I tend to go for less realistic toy designs personally, but admittedly there is some logic behind following some anatomical cues when it comes to toy design. I do think it's important for non-realistic toys to be designed thoughtfully for both form and function, otherwise you end up with a pretty toy that really does nothing for you.

Realistic toys creep me out. Penises aren't cute, really.

And if I wanted something realistic I would find an actual real one.

Plus, fun shaped things work better.

I don't want anything realistic, and they make my boyfriend uncomfortable.

I generally prefer that my toys don't look too realistic.

Yes that is exactly how my husband is. I think it would really creep him out if he found a realistic looking penis like dildo under our bed. He would most likely make me throw it out anyways. I don't care for realistic looking toys. I'm just looking for something fun shaped that feels good and will get the job done. Realistic pocket pussies really creep me out too. Vagina's really aren't that cute.

Realistic toys don't make them real and my boyfriend is a little uneasy about them if they look real. I'd rather something fun and inventive when it comes to my toys and he is more open to using them too.

I wish this was a checkbox poll instead of a radio button. I think cocks are hot, but there just aren't very many realistic toys that are made of safe materials. Otherwise I'd own more.

I do prefer cock-shaped but differently-colored options, like the colorful line of Tantus' O2 and their VIP (my favorite).

Artsy stuff can be fun though too, I love my NobEssences!

My husband has that fear. He doesn't want me to use internal toys for that very reason, but I've made a compromise, I won't buy realistic toys but other toys are fair game because I'd like to experience an internal orgasm at some point in my life.

I LOVE artistic toys.
The prettier the better in my opinion.

I actually enjoy both categories. Artistic toys are pretty and unassuming and can offer a wider variety of sensations, while realistic toys are more fun to fantasize with. My favorite toy (in both looks and feel) is fairly realistic, while the four favorites underneath it are abstract.

I usually don't care whether or not it's realistic or artistic looking, as long as it works and gets me off.

Like many starting out we avoided realistic toys. However as we matured and expanded our tastes we learned the obvious.

The female anatomy was designed to respond to the shape of a penis. Even many non-realistic toys have a bulge at the tip which essentially mimics the head of a penis.

Any reluctance my wife had about realistic toys evaporated when we first used the Vixskin Johnny - she just went ballistic. Having something that feels real - but is a bit larger than her modestly endowed partner - rocked her world like no other toy.

I like a colourful toy with an interesting shape. I only really like realistic toys if they're moulded from an actual penis, for me that is a turn-on, rather than just having a penis-shaped sculpture out of someone's imagination.

I don't really have a preference.

I tend not to hide my toys and I have teenaged girls SO I prefer toys with whimsical shapes rather than phallic shaped. Besides I have plenty of realness when I am toying I was something toy-like, if that makes sense.

I like the discreet ones and those that are anatomically functional ie designed to work a certain spot as opposed to straight phallic shaped if at all possible.
