Removing Gender From Sex Toys

“The Beast 666 ordains by His authority that every man, and every woman, and every intermediately-sexed individual, shall be absolutely free to interpret and communicate Self by means of any sexual practices soever, whether direct or indirect, rational or symbolic, physiologically, legally, ethically, or religiously approved or no, provided only that all parties to any act are fully aware of all implications and responsibilities thereof, and heartily agree thereto.” -Commentary to The Book of the Law I:51

A black silicone vibrating sex toy“When it comes to sex toys, a one-size-fits-all philosophy just doesn’t work,” says Vice. “That’s because sexual interests and tastes can be as unique and singular as the bodies that contain them. While there’s nothing wrong with wanting a rainbow glitter dick, lipstick vibrator, or hyper-realistic flesh-colored dildo, many of these products can be alienating to individuals who may identify as gender nonbinary, or feel put off by the gender essentialism of toys created ‘for men’ or ‘for women.'”

An item that may be designed to stimulate a G-spot needn’t be restricted to that use alone. Indeed, in the hands of another person, it could stimulate the prostate. Labeling a toy for a specific gender tends to exclude genderfluid and nonbinary individuals. Vice expands, “According to progressive retailers, the ultimate goal for the future of sex toys is not to dictate who can access them and who can’t.”
