Too many toys?

spicywife spicywife
I started to wonder if there is anyone who really has too many toys. By that, I mean that you have so many toys that you aren't sure which one to use and some of them go to the wayside (not because they're not good, but because you have too many to choose from). So, I wonder if you have a balanced toy collection or if you have a lot of variation of the same toys that makes it hard to choose (OR if that is a good thing for you because you like variety).

My husband and I have a small collection that we're adding to and we know what we need to really make it a great collection. I just had a thought that a really large toy collection (with too many variations of the same toy used for the same purpose) could be a bit overwhelming.

All answers are welcome except you "you're crazy! I can't have too many toys"

Once it gets too out of hand, you just have to get a little creative

For example let's say you have 182 vibrators. And for the sake of this conversation let's just say that you keep all of them in individual Ziploc freezer bags. Choose one vibrator and, in marker, write January 01st / July 01st on the outside of the bag. Then you take the next one and write January 02nd / July 02nd on that bag. Until you have a designated bi-annual label (and sex date set) for each vibrator.

The benefit of doing this is that it assures all vibrators will get used and not forgotten about, and now you can enjoy the adventure of a new vibrator every single day. After 6 months and 181 vibrators, ole New Years day will seem like a brand new sensation.

And for the record, having too many sex toys is just awesome! It's like having too much candy laying around. Mmmm candy!

That's definitely a new spin on it! And since I like to be organized, I am quite sure that I would organize it in that manner. I know it would be fun to have a variety of cock rings to choose from.

And imagine all the variety of colors in a large toy collection too... you can choose one for your current mood!

Interesting question. My gut reaction is to say that there is no way you can have too many sex toys (sounds blasphemous, doesn't it?), but I have to say that I have more than I really use. Some are very good toys that have many wonderful reviews, but for me they aren't as good as some others, so I tend to stick with certain ones for the most part. That doesn't mean I intend to quit buying, though!

It's scary that I read that and think, wow, what a great idea! I've thought of creating a scheduling calendar. Maybe a "Big Love" type rotation

My point is less about whether or not you have too many but rather if you have so many that you aren't able to use them all. Does that make sense? That's really what I was trying to get at because it seems like it could be overwhelming and that you may need to be organized like Gary pointed out.

Most of my toys are organized in zip lock bags, all readily accessible. Honestly, some haven't worked out all that great for me but I hang on to them.
Most of the time I use the toys that I know from experience were "just made for me" and my body awaits them.....
I sometimes choose a usually neglected toy when I watch porn for perhaps a new sensation.

I have had too many. I regularly get rid of toys that either don't do much for me or if I have a similar item that I prefer. I just don't have the room for every single item I have.

That's a good question. We have what I would consider a "balanced" collection, because everything either feels or does something a little bit different, so it's not all that hard to choose what we're in the mood for. Of course there are tried-and-true favorites that we return to again and again, but we do tend to like variety, so even the ones that don't get used all that often are wanted at some time or another.

I think I see what you're saying though, and if we had a lot of toys that felt and performed nearly identically, I would consider storing some aside in a box for when the others broke.

Yes, that's what I am saying

I definitely understand wanting variety! We only have one cock ring and we definitely want a couple more, especially since the one we have is just a stretchy one. W'd like to try a metal one and maybe an agate one.

You have too many sex toys if you wonder what your family will think if you died suddenly, and they had to remove the remains of your apartment/home out. I know there is no embaressment after death - or is there>???

Lol - that's why you have a "buddy". I've seen them called all kinds of things, but basically they come in when something happens, know where your stashes are, and clean it out before the relatives come.

I just today realized that I have way too much stuff, and I said as much on Twitter. It's surprising; I've recycled or given away half of the toys I've gotten, just to make sure they all got regular use. Yet both of my FYN Big Foots are stuffed, and I worry about ruining the integrity of my new Hitachi case.

I guess this means I really do need a rolling toy trunk!

Oh, shyte, I think about that all the time! "What will people think when they see I have hundreds of dollars worth of sex toys? Hmmmm..."

Drawers full of dildos and harnesses and anal vibrators and a dozen different lubes....God forbid one should die holding a rabbit vibe either.

Whoever finds all of mine & Alan's stuff will undoubtedly say, "Dang! Those old buggers were kinky!" I just hope I'm not laying there with the aforementioned rabbit vibe in my hand when they say it. LOL!

Better yet, imagine dying mid-fetish session.

Worse, imagine your grandkids finding your corpse.

Eeek! Alan once said how it would be great if, when we were really old, we kicked the bucket while we were stuck together. He said it'd save money on the funeral because they'd be able to get away with using only one casket. He's weird (lol).

In the future, some archeologist will dig up the remains of a corpse with a silicone Feeldoe and a silicone butt plug.

I've totally thought about this (including the saving money on the casket thing). Yup. High five for weird thoughts!

I am wondering what you do with the toys you no longer use or just didn't like. I have a few that I don't want at all and I know I will never use again and I need to make them go away so I have room for new toys.

I know you can recycle them and give them away. Who would you offer them to though? I know it may seem silly, but if you have toys you don't want that can be sanitized and you are going to toss them anyway, why not offer them up right? I just want to be sure my toys (even the ones I don't "prefer" end up somewhere decent.

Several time I have thrown our old toys in the garbage and the homeless people have dug them out with big smiles on thier faces. Now our house is a target for the homeless now i usually put new battries in for their pleasure. The homeless people need to have fun too.

I have a silicone toy that I don't use and only used once. It's a vibe. Perhaps I should put it somewhere with a sign saying "free"
