Even though in modern day it is considered a Christian holiday, Easter has roots that go much further back. The aspects of the celebration that are now seen as cultural elements as opposed to the religious practices have connections that go all the way back to the roots of the celebration.
There are different theories on exactly where the celebration came from but many sources believe Easter began as the festival of Ishtar (pronounced Easter), the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility and sex. If you think about it that does kind of make it the perfect celebration for those of us in the sex toy industry. Ishtar’s symbols (such as the egg and the rabbit) are still considered symbols of fertility and sex.
It’s Going To Be A Very Happy Easter
We’re used to the commercial side of Easter that thrusts chocolate versions of these symbols (eggs and rabbits) on us but who says we can’t look at the more grown up versions of these things. Just because we usually think of cultural Easter as a holiday for the kids doesn’t mean us adults can’t get in on the fun.
Here at That’s the Spot we sell a few types of eggs, we sell ones that are made to be inserted (not anal safe), and ones that are stretchy and made to fit over a penis. This second type are Tenga Eggs. These are a fantastic little item. They are a super stretchy egg shaped masturbator. The inside of the eggs is textured, and they come in a variety of patterns giving different sensations, and are designed to fit all sizes due to the elasticity. The Tenga Egg is designed to be used once only. However, with a thorough washing and good sex toy care, (wash immediately after use, spray with anti-bac toy spray, and leave to air dry completely before storing) you could use it multiple times. They come in a plastic egg container, and when you pop it open, the masturbation sleeve inside looks egg shaped. To use them you just squirt some lube inside (you get a sachet included), slide it over the head of the penis, and away you go. Because of the stretch, you can easily adjust how much or how little you want to cover, it can stretch down the shaft or can just be used on the head.
The other eggs we sell are commonly known as ‘love eggs’. This is an egg shaped insertable, that usually vibrates
The rabbit style of vibrator has two shafts; a longer insertable one and a smaller slightly flexible one to stimulate the clit. Rabbit vibrators seem to have a divisive reputation; you either love them or hate them. However, I think there is such a huge variety of styles and designs that it is hard to say none of them will ever work for you. The first few I tried were the more typical rabbit design (with the mini bunny as the small arm), and while they were perfectly good vibrators, they were never completely perfect. Then I realised I needed something that had a clit arm that sat much closer to my body. Once I found one that worked for my body shape, it was like a revelation.
Which came first the egg or the rabbit? Sounds like a sexy experiment in the making.
