Do you like toys shaped like animals?

oohlookasquirrel oohlookasquirrel
I personally have a hard time understanding toys that look like cute little animals. Here are a few examples of the toys that baffle me. You get the idea.

I understand that the origin of such toys began to get around laws that banned the production of things that looked like real body parts, and I suppose I can see the appeal of having a sex toy that doesn't look like a big fat cock on your bedside stand, but with so many sex toys of this style, are they really fooling anyone anymore?

I'm not talking about dildos shaped like tentacles or a horse cock, because it's clear that some people are turned on by those shapes and I don't see a problem with it, even if it's not my thing. I'm talking about the toys that don't seem to be intended to arouse with their shape but rather to have an appealing "cute factor". It seems to me like they're implying that ladies might want to use cute fuzzy animals for their sexual pleasure because ladies like cute fuzzy animals, and maybe I'm thinking too much into this, but I find that kind of disturbing. I don't buy toys with animals on them because I can't get over the "using a cute animal for my sexual pleasure" hangup, but I admit that I'm probably overthinking this. A lot of women must be enjoying these toys if there are so many of them out there. So, does anybody have a favorite animal-shaped toy? Can you help me get over my bias against cute animal toys? Or are these toy makers as misguided as I think they are? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I chose other because I'm somewhere between I don't care and it depends on the toy. It's not that I don't care what a toy looks like at all, but I don't necessarily care if it's an animal or not. Some of the animals are very realistic or detailed and are a bit too cutesy, those I probably wouldn't want because it'd remind me too much of a child's toy. But there are some rabbit style vibes and those type of animal toys don't bother me. Also the ones like "little paul" and such don't bother me either. For the most part I don't mind animals I guess.

The only things I don't like are fake pubic hair and natural colors. But since Vixen makes their Vixskin in natural colors, and I so want one, I may have to get over that last.

I actually like most toys shaped like cute animals. I don't own many, but whenever I see one on Eden's catalog, my gut reaction is "WANT!" I can't really explain it other than as just liking cute things, especially cute things that vibrate. I also like the discretion factor of it. I feel better going through airport security checkpoints with a tiny vibrating turtle than a vibrating dong.

I'm always interested because they are cute and a little different but I've never bought one, so... what does that mean?

I chose other, because although I am not a fan of toys which look like cute animals, it doesn't offend me at all if people like them or use them.

I am sure I (and everyone here) do a LOT of stuff that other people might consider weird and what people's sex toys look like is really not a concern of mine.

To each their own.

I love them. i even have dildos that are shaped like horse and dog dicks. It doesn't bother me. And no, I am not a zoophile or anything of the sort, I just like weird crap. I even want whipspider's ghoul and the jellyfish, too.

Just to clarify, I didn't mean to hate on people who enjoy these toys. Sometimes it's hard to understand why people like something if you don't like it yourself, and I like to expand my horizons. It's kind of like asking someone about the appeal of a certain fetish if you'd never thought to try it. I don't want anyone to feel bad or weird for using these toys. I personally don't like using them because the animal is a mood killer for me, but if you don't have that problem, rock on and have some orgasms.

I am the first to admit that I am waaaay too sensitive when it comes to animals. One of the scariest movies I ever saw was Ratatouille, I kid you not. I get terrified if a fictional animal is in any bit of danger and it totally ruins my day if something bad happens to one. I can enjoy the goriest horror movies without blinking, but if someone threatens a kitten, I'm going to need to leave the room. I suspected that I was being overly sensitive on the issue of cute animal sex toys, and I'm happy to hear that other people are enjoying them.

If it makes you feel good and nobody gets hurt who doesn't want to be, knock yourself out and don't get worried about what other people might think of you.

I could NEVER use Patchy Paul, though. It looks like a child's toy. Just too CUTE to put....well, you know. But, people must love them, because they make a lot of them.

Everybody has their own thing.

I cannot use animal shaped toys either. Those little bunnies or butterflies(I know it's not really an animal, but you get my point) bother me to no end. Not sure why either. That being said, if it's an unusually good toy I try to get over it. Like the Form 2, I don't have a problem with.

Absolute ditto (or dildo?) here.

I don't want my toys looking like children's toys, but I don't really care if it's animal-shaped. I think that Fun Factory's cute toys are just that... cute, especially the Little Paul and the Witty Worm. Sometimes, I think it's nice to be able to get off without something extremely phallic.

Generally speaking we don't go for animal shaped toys - the big exception being the whole class of double-stimulators known as 'rabbits' . Our two favorite ones have a hummingbird clit-vibe - which works great. The wings stimulate the vulva while the beak dances all over her clit.

Since almost every toy aficionado has a rabbit-vibe - most should be answering that they love animal shaped toys.

For me, it just depends on how the toy looks and how well it works. Sometimes I see toys with animals on them and I think they are super cute, but I wouldn't use them because I don't think it would work very well.

I don't really care. I mean, my first toy had a rabbit, which didn't bother me at all. The only thing that bothers me are toys with faces; like cartoon faces, which is creppy. My first toy had a face right on the head of the penis and the shaft was his clothes. My mom pointed it out to me, and now I won't even touch the toy. It is just too weird

I don't want to play with anything that can look back at me unless it's an in-the-flesh human being. That includes the Flexi Felix. Almost bought that but couldn't get over the creepy feeling it gave me

Depends on the toy and the severity of the animal. Is the whole thing animal-shaped, or are there only features that are animalistic? It depends wholly on the toy itself.

I love toys that don't look like actual sex toys and have quite a collection, but its not just limited to animals. Not many of them are top quality or top drawer type toys but I think theyre cute to collect

It all depends on the toy for me. At first I didn't like the idea of animal shaped or designed toys, but I starting loving the looks of the rub my duckie series and currently have one on it's way, so we will see how it goes.

It depends, I really don't usually but some of them are just too neat to pass up.

It might make me feel a little weird depending on the design and animal. I prefer resemblances to animals to be vague--not realistic nor cartoony (I'd be too embarrassed with the latter!). I would take an animal-shaped toy over a toy shaped like a human part.

I'm not a fan. If I have a choice of one without...I go that way. Rabbits don't bother me though.

It really doesn't bother me at all. Now, dildos shaped like actual animal genitalia? Ew. Freaks me right out. To each his own, though.

some of them are creepy. i definitely agree with the posters who have said they prefer the animal resemblance to be vague at best.

If it does the job, animal toys that don't *too* closely resemble their live counterparts don't both me. I understand how the shape of some animal parts (like 'bunny ears') can be stimulating--but the ones with noses/ears/whiskers/et c really bother me.

I'm in the "don't care, as long as it does the job!" category, but my best friend absolutely refuses to use anything that even vaguely resembles a cute little animal... so you're not alone!

I don't refuse to, but I prefer to not use toys shaped like animals. Like brokenangel said, it just doesn't feel right.
