Rent-a-dildo: worst idea in the world, ever?

Recycle logo May 21st, 2008 by Rosie

Houses, DVDs, games – all good things to rent. But there are some things in life that, for reasons of pride, ethics or cleanliness, should never ever be rented. Love, for example. Or pets. Or second-hand sex toys.

Rent-a-dildo.com is possibly the most ludicrous rental scheme on the internet. As the name implies, you pay your money, you get a phallic lump of rubber. You do your thang, you send it back, they send you another.

Worried about hygiene? Relaaax! Rent-a-dildo have a mysterious and vague “patent-pending process for thoroughly cleaning each toy.” But they do advise that if you’re worried you should use a condom or other latex barrier on your toys. So every time you get one of these little surprises in the post, it’s a bit like having dirty sex with a stranger whose sexual history you can only guess (and shudder) at. And you’ve paid them.

Of course, people in glass houses shouldn’t throw rampant rabbits. Do you use a new stick with every chick? A new bunny with every honey? A new butt plug with every love bug? These things are expensive, and anyone who’s not loaded and/or in a long-term has probably done a bit of recycling in their time.

But ladies, here’s the deal. When it’s your own junk in your trunk you know where it’s been, you know where it’s going, you know how much soap and hot water it’s had in between.

If you’re too adventurous to stick to what you’ve got, but you’re too cheap to buy new toys for keeps, get back to basics and go with what God gave you. Or just get creative with your neighbour’s vegetable patch.

There’s a reason why you won’t find anal beads in your local library. Let’s keep it that way.

  • While it would be nice to give sex toys a test drive safely, I worry this site will later find kinks in their sterilization process. A better bet is to purchase from a site that has handpicked and tested the products they carry, such as http://healthyandactive.com, to ensure you aren’t paying for junk. Also, even if they do actually get the toys clean, the eww factor is something most of us can’t get past.

  • They announced in about a week they’re going to discontinue anal products and start testing other products for fecal material.
