When I'm living in my parent's basement (which I am right now), I hide them in the bottom of my dirty laundry bin. Or under a pile of rumpled laundry.
I know they won't look there.
The foot and head of my bed frame have little compartments in them. I have two toys, one I use and one I don't The one I use goes at the head of my bed, with the lube. The one I don't use is in the foot. That way they are accessible while I'm in bed. It really breaks the mood to have to stand up and find them.
we have 2 young boys in the house. so we only keep what we will use in the nightstand. (lube, cock ring, and a bullet vibe). the rest is in the bedroom closet or in the safe. If it looks like a sextoy, we try to make sure the kids cant find it.
Some are kept out - usually the toys we use most often and some that arent too 'in your face'.
While others are kept in the drawers of my nightstand.
I actually have a bit of a display for some of my glass dildos/plugs that my man made so we could easily grab them but looks great as well
Once my kids got old enough to start poking around our bedroom, I decided it was time to take the toys out of our dresser drawers and put them in a dedicated, lockable toy box. Ours is a plastic tool box that I got from a home improvement store, and it has suited our needs quite well. It lives on a corner of our closet when we aren't in need of it.
I keep most of them in the chest of drawers next to my bed, my floggers and leather toys hang in the closet and occasionally they stay in my bat bag for a day or two after I take them out for a play date.
Designated toy box in the closet... we don't have kiddos yet but we live next door to his mom & grandma.. If they need something and we aren't home they will just come over and sometimes they come over unannounced.. Not that I really mind it's just I really don't want them seeing our collection! =)
Other, mostly because I don't have a permanent solution yet. I have the ones I plan to keep in the bottom two drawers of my jewelry amoire. There is a two-speed wahl in my bed and a jelly toy underneath the bed that I may or may not try to salvage. In my bathroom cabinet there are a couple jelly dongs that I haven't thrown away yet but probably will; I just can't bring myself to use them now that I know more about jelly.
I don't know what I will do after I make my next order.
I usually try to remember to tuck them out of sight, as I usually have a stream of students popping by, neighbours curious to see how the foreigner lives, school teachers, student parents... which I do not encourage.
But... I do not always remember... ahhh the joys of living by oneself!! and there have been more than one occasion where my "company" decided to snoop and press buttons then squeal in horror and return to the room, or sit up red faced when the light bulb clicks on that it is a sex toy.
When I visit my family in North America, night stand drawer if I get my own room, or in my suit case if I am on the move. And yes, I've had to speak to my family about going through my things. Much to their red faces.
We have a Devine Chest for all of my dildos and vibrators, a caboodle looking thing for all of my glass stuff and bullets, and a trunk for all of our BDSM stuff as well as some of my lingerie. My partner has a studio apartment and all of our stuff is there...so we're limited on space :/
seeing as i only have a few right now i keep them in my dresser drawer in individual bags, to keep three sets of little eyes from seeing them lol as i dont have the chance to live by myself at this point in time but if i did live by myself the only time they would be put away is when i have company or they (my nieces and nephew)are at my house other then that i feel no need to hide them especially if they are in constant use hehe
I don't really hide them. The majority of them are in clear plastic drawers in my living room (which is also my bedroom). Most people won't know what they are unless I tell them though.
Some are in my dresser because my plastic drawers ran out of space, some are on the book shelf along with my DVD's, some are in the bathroom under the spare bedding... they are pretty much all over the place!
