Metal Sex Toys Steel Dildos NJoy

 

The poet John Keats once famously stated, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” A lovely sentiment, but is that really true? What about all the beautiful things that erode with time? Or worse yet - stop working even after you’ve put in fresh batteries? Of course we’re talking about the pretty little play things we call sex toys. From your luxury vibrator to your trusty rabbit… all can go from gorgeous pleasure machines to beat down devices. Proper cleaning and care of your sex toys will help them last and many include a manufacturer warranty, but that doesn’t mean their beauty and power can’t fade over time. This is precisely why every woman needs metal dildos in her toy box. The durable, versatile steel and aluminum dildos are things of beauty that will be a joy forever. Especially if your chosen metal dildo is the NJoy Pure Wand, AKA “the juicer.” You’ll learn more about this gorgeous orgasm-maker later in the blog. We’re just teasing you with it now. 


Cold Hard Facts About Metal Dildos


Some people avoid metal dildos and stainless steel butt plugs because they assume the materials used won’t offer the supple pleasure of silicone or other sex toy materials. Some might worry that  metal toys will be too cool to the touch and forget that this same sensation can make them shiver with delight. The other reason one might hesitate to try metal sex toys is simply their lack of vibration. To this we say: don't forget that most of us have the good fortune of owning two hands! More if you’re using sex toys with a lucky partner! But on your own, you can use a metal dildo to work your g-spot and a silicone vibe on your clitoris for a blended orgam. As every fashionista knows, mixing textures is a must - the same is true when it comes to your sensual styling. After you find your favorite metal toy, you can mix and match it with crotchless lace panties, a leather crop, or any number of fun lingerie or sex toy accessories


Look out world, here you come! With a metal dildo no less...


Material Things

Njoy Fun Wand Stainless Steel Sex Toy

 

When it comes to metal sex toys, we are material girls living in a material world. Whether you’re shopping for a gold dildo, a light-weight aluminum or heftier stainless steel sex toy, a few facts remain the same. They are generally hypo-allergenic, making them an ideal alternative to materials like latex or PVC.  

 

A high quality metal dildo or butt plug is non-porous, meaning that you can sanitize it easily and efficiently. You can throw it in the dishwasher (which is extra fun if you share chores with roommates), use toy cleaner, or good old fashioned antibacterial soap and warm water. You can also boil them, but like… why? The other cleaning methods are so much faster and easier. You can also shine it up a bit with a microfiber cloth. Ladies - you can literally polish your knob! Don’t use Windex though - it’s not safe for your delicate self. 

 

Steel dildos and anal plugs are also extremely durable. Because they are easy to clean, and once sanitized, will never store bacteria- they last forever. Over time, you may find tiny scratches on these toys but that typically comes from how they are stored, rather than how they are used. Most of the metal dildos through PinkCherry sex toys come in sleek boxes lined with silk or will include a lovely bag to keep your toy flawless. 

 

Stainless steel toys are typically heavier, but that weight is ideal for leverage. For example, you can use minimum exertion on the handle while still feeling maximum impact on your g-spot. The weight of a steel butt plug against the sphincter and anus feels incredible because again, gentle movements of the handle or lightly easing the plug in and out, will have an intensely pleasurable effect. 

 

Aluminum dildos are lighter, so if you love the idea of a toy that is sanitary, beautiful and works with all lubricant types, but isn’t as heavy as a stainless steel toy - this is the way to go. Just know that aluminum is softer than stainless steel, making it slightly less durable more prone to scratches. Even if your toy gets a few scratches, the non-porous nature of aluminum means it won’t harbor bacteria after it’s cleaned. Be sure to check if your metal dildo or anal butt plug is plated or contains other materials such as a gemstone or faux fur tail and care for it accordingly. There are some sex toys on the market that look metal, but are just plated in a metalic paint or metal coating. These cheaper sex toys will have a significantly lower price point, but won’t necessarily be as body safe or durable as a true metal toy. Here at PinkCherry, we make sure to list all toy materials, so you'll know exactly what type of metal you're in for (or will be in you!).  There are even some fantastic metal products that are plated in gold. Just be sure to look for toys with ultra-hygienic plating when shopping for a gold dildo or butt plug. Unless of course you’re buying a solid 14k gold dildo… in which case, you are Beyoncé. 

 

Run Hot and Cold

Metal sex toys are also ideal for what we in the sex biz call “sensation” or “temperature play.” The metal materials are typically cooler but readily adapt and allow you to engage in sensation play. You can put that shiny new dildo in the fridge for a few or warm it up in water. Avoid the freezer, as we all know the outcome of sticking your tongue on a metal pole in the winter, it’s not pretty. With that image in your head, you can probably imagine the outcome of using a frozen metal sex toy, so keep it safe - stick to water for warming or cooling your metal sex toys.

 

These tips are the ones you’ll typically find when looking into temperature play with metal and some pyrex glass sex toys. 

 

HOWEVER!! There’s an easier way to do sensation play. Warming and cooling lubricants. Boom. Easy. No one has to get the oven mits out to deliver your fresh warm dildo… unless you’re doing a kinky homemaker thing… which would be pretty sexy.

 

When deciding if you’d prefer a warming sensation versus a cooling one, think of it in the same way you’d choose a cold or hot compress. Heat can ease and comfort, while cold can be soothing or exciting depending on the intensity. And if you love one temp more than another- you can always opt for your preference. 

 

For a warming lubricant, try the Wicked Jelle Heat Warming Anal Lube with a slick, classic in shape silver booty plug adorned with a light-up base. Think of this as the perfect way to feel sexy and hot.

 

NJoy Yourself

NJoy G-Spot Massager Stainless Steel Dildo Sex Toy

 

As we mentioned earlier, the NJoy Pure Wand is a standout metal dildo. Either side of the curved wand can be inserted vaginally or anally. However, the bulbous heads on either end are fantastic for stimulating the g-spot. The curvature positions the rounded end in such a way that the “come hither” angle and motion is pretty much teed up for you or your partner to use with ease. The weight of the Pure Wand allows gentle movements, but that feel like the ultimate thrusting. If you’ve ever wondered about female ejaculation and want to see if a good g-spot massage can do the trick- this is the toy to try. Hence why this pretty penetrator is called “The Juicer.” Hop in the shower with it or put a towel down and go to town. Like male ejaculation, female ejaculation is not a measure of how amazing an orgasm feels, but it can be icing on the cake. Give it a shot!

 

The Pure Wand is legendary, but note that the entire line of Njoy sex toys are worth knowing about. Their designs are ergonomically and aesthetically perfect. Because the shape of their anal items are so well made, they glide in more comfortably than a lot of non-metal toys. Just be sure to use water-based or silicone lube. Partnering any of the Njoy products with other toys such as c-rings or clit vibes work beautifully. Try to keep any vibrating toy away from your metal toy… it makes a really startling sound. Still worth it though. 

 

Njoy is the O.G. of metal sex toys and have since inspired a lot of knock offs. Each stainless steel dildo, wand or plug, comes in a black box with fuchsia satin lining. They are absolutely stunning and can even be engraved if you’re looking for a naughty, romantic gift. Maybe just get your own name engraved on it so you and your roommates know whose is whose when you unload the dishwasher? 

 

Pedal to the Metal

 

Seriously? You’re still here? Go on you sexy little minx, get your metal dildo, fetching gold plug tail or Pure Wand already. Find lasting love with your metal sex toys and remember that “a thing of beauty is a joy forever,” and your pleasure is that thing of beauty.
