Remember how embarrassed when your daughter found your le wand vibrator and asked you what it was? It looked like a mic she said. She even did a little performance before handing it over to you. Meanwhile you and your partner had that awkward look. It was confusion blended well with shame and embarrassment. It then dawned on you that you really need to figure out how and where you’ll be storing your sex toys.
It sounds easy on paper. Use the toys, wipe them clean and stash them under the bed. This seemed to work for quite some time until the aforementioned embarrassing episode. Truth is, under the bed isn’t really an option but a quick fix solution for when you have to get out of bed for a second after using the toy. So what happens when you’re done with using that strap on dildo? Where should you stash it away? What about the pink rabbit dildo that’s sure to draw your child’s attention? The following tips should help.
Uninspiring Tool Boxes
They come in many shapes, designs and of course, colours. You may already be thinking that the toolbox will draw attention. Not so fast! If you have a collection of sex toys, your best bet is actually a tool box that isn’t so appealing as far as design is concerned. That way, snoopers will quickly dismiss it as any other toolbox in a house.
Be sure to go for a lockable toolbox. It should also be sizable enough to fit under your bed or in a small space away from prying eyes. If you use the toys with a partner, share a spare key with them.
Hiding In Plain Sight
You don’t want anyone at home to ever suspect you use a le wand vibrator? It’s simple. Hide it in plain sight. Hidden storage pieces of furniture are designed for such reasons. They feature special concealment spaces that are hard to notice. It could be a secret draw, a slide out feature or even base with a pull out drawer. The ideas here are endless. You only need to spend an hour or two online looking for hidden storage furniture to figure out what works for you.
Sounds strange but yes, treasure troves are ideal for sex toys storage. Sure, they can draw attention but they’re hard to open. Modern ones are in fact, digitalized so you can lock up the trove using a combination no one else in your house knows.
Note that treasure troves, just like the tool boxes mentioned above, come in different sizes. You don’t have to go for the big one. There are small treasure troves about the size of adult shoes boxes. That means you can lock up your strap on dildo in the trove and hide it away from prying eyes….yes…under the bed.
Discreet Shelf Décor
Ever heard of false books? Chances are, you haven’t. Good for you if you have. They are not so popular especially when it comes to storing sex toys. It turns out that they are ideal if you have to store sex toys in your office.
Yet again, this is a perfect example of plain sight hiding. False books look real. They are also artistic in a way. Stash the false book in the middle of real books and no one will suspect anything. The books, as the name suggests, look real. You open it only to realize it is a box. To make the most of the book, store it amongst your other collection then look it up in a clear glass bookshelf.
Under The Bed Storage Bags
There’s something about sex toys and under the bed ideas. It doesn’t matter how hard you think about where to store them. Somehow somewhat, ‘under the bed’ will always cross your mind as a brilliant idea. Unfortunately, it really isn’t a brilliant idea. You have to be a little bit smart to have the idea stand out as brilliant. That is exactly where under the bed storage bags come into the picture.
First off, under the bed storage bags are ideal if you’re short on storage space. Then there is the fact that they are usually zippered and yeah, lockable. It doesn’t end there. Many of under the bed storage bags also feature dividers. This makes it very easy for you to tuck away all your sexy things – from the lingerie and the strap on dildo all the way to blindfolds and butt plugs.
Storage Benches And Ottomans
When was the last time you stored anything inside your bedroom ottoman? There’s a high likelihood you only open it once in a while. It turns out that ottomans and storage benches are actually ideal for sex toys storage.
Sure, they are conspicuous and you mostly have them in the living room. That doesn’t mean though you can’t use them to store your sex toys collection. For starters, you should only go for bedroom ottomans and storage benches. That way, you can have the peace of mind that your sex toys are closer to you when you need them, away from prying eyes. Make no mistake though, even living room ottomans and storage benches are ideal for sex toys storage. This is especially the case if you have a huge collection of sex toys.
Sex Toy Bags
Yes, there’s such a thing. There are nicely designed sex toy bags all over the internet. Just like it is the case with other bags though, you must exercise some caution when shopping for a sex toy bag. Be keen on factors like the material the bag is made of, whether or not the bag is breathable, the price and of course, how durable the bag is.
Space is certainly an issue particularly if you’re in the market for a bag that can easily fit a huge collection of sex toys. This shouldn’t be a problem because the bags come in many different shapes. You might also want to consider the brand you want to spend your money on. One of the most effective ways to go about looking for a good brand is to take into account consumer reviews. They come in handy if you’re buying online.
It is yet another cliché like idea that you may have written off. Not so fast though! Suitcases actually make good storage options for sex toys. That special compartment inside the suitcase? Yes, that one! Store your autoblow 2.0 there. No one will find it.
Remember though that you may be asked to remove items from your suitcase if you’re traveling. This happens world over for security reasons in airports. You may therefore want to leave your favourite sex toy behind if you’re not so comfortable holding it in public.
Transparent Toy Catalogue
If you happen to live with liberal adults, then this is a great choice. You get to store your sex toys in a translucent or transparent sex toy catalogue. You can lock up the catalogue or leave it open. The point here is, your liberal roommates should respect your sex life. In other words, you should be able to store your sex toys in your personal, private space without anyone around you judging you.
Where Not To Stay Sex Toys
Now that you have all these ideas on where to store that autoblow 2.0 or rabbit dildo, it is also a good idea to know a thing or two about where not to store yours sex toys.
The first one here is obvious. Whatever you do, keep all your sex toys out of reach of children. Sure, they may be curious enough to go through your stuff and in the process, get their hands on your clit vibrator. Handle the situation well. First off, the fact that your child found your toy should be a clarion call for you to do better. Buy that sex toy bag or tool box. It may be expensive but it’ll save you from lots of embarrassment. Be sure to talk to your child gently on why they shouldn’t go through other people’s stuff.
Then there is the tile and attic options. Should you dig a tile and store the toy under the tile? Well, you don’t have to destroy anything just to find where to store a sex toy. As for the attic, heat will not augur well with your sex toys especially the ones made of silicone. As a rule of the thumb sex toys should only be kept cool and dry places away from direct sunlight.
Sex toys are good. They can also be very embarrassing once a sibling or a fellow housemate stumbles upon them. It gets even worse if you have a huge collection. Your best bet is to therefore, find a good place to store yours sex toys. The ideas discussed above should help you in that regard. Then by all means, always clean your toys before storing them. Remember to wipe them dry too. That way, you can always fish the toys out for immediate use without worrying whether or not you should wash them before use. To make your work easier, always have wet wipes at hand for use before and after playing with the adult toys.
