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.
