Unlike a lot of mothers in my suburban community, I have no problem talking to my kids about sex. I was raised by a stylish diva mom of the Mad Men era. This is what informed how I educated my daughter about sex, although my tutelage was far from embittered — because sex, love, and relationships have always been a highly satisfying part of my life. I write about my sex positive philosophy in my recently published memoir Wide Open , which describes my journey balancing romantic love and family life. Educating my children on sex, love, and relationships is a crucial part of what I consider good parenting. When my daughter was 10 years old, she got into my sex toy draw and borrowed a small lavender vibrator. I told her that masturbation was a private activity saved for nonpublic spaces like her bedroom. But there seems to be a pervasive fear that talking about sex will encourage teenagers to have sex.

The disturbing and frank reality of what millions of child prostitutes are forced into every day has been revealed in a shocking advert. The ad from charity Free a Girl starts off with bizarre - but quite adorable - footage of young girls trying to guess what a sex toy is. One little girl says she thinks it might be a "rolling pin," as she demonstrates how to use one across the table. And another thinks it might be a curling iron - showing how one works by rolling it up in her hair. But then the girl's play is abruptly cut and a message flashes up on a black screen saying: "Innocent imagination for these girls. It then flashes back to a girl putting the sex toy in her EAR as she obliviously chuckles away at it swirling around. Then another black screen flashes up, with the message: "Horrible reality for millions of others. The advert then takes a disturbing turn, showing footage of a child prostitute being touted out for business.
So you probably need a closet full of vibrators too. The only bad thing about sex-toy shopping is that there are a lot of options. The small nub at the end has three different suction intensities, plus eight vibration modes. The unique shape of this vibrator from Paloqueth allows it to curve all the way from your vagina to your clitoris, meaning you can stimulate both at the same time. This mini wand has a folding head that turns to different angles, meaning your wrists can get a much needed break. The shape is not only flat enough to press against your clitoris unobtrusively, but also can be shifted around for targeted, pinpoint stimulation, or broader vibrations. The vibes are also super deep and rumbly, and a full charge lasts you quite a while. The contoured design fits comfortably in your palm, while the soft silicone tip has ridges for extra stimulation.
