This isn’t a question but rather an idea worth sharing. (I didn’t know where else to put this on the “New” site.)
We have a collection of toys, many of which have rechargeable batteries. And we like to keep them close at hand in a night stand next to our bed. So recently my hubby made a minor modification to our night stand adding a power strip on the back for all the power packs and drilled holes through the back to accommodate all of the charging cords. So none of this is visible but the inside of the drawers now have all of the cords we need for each of our toys. Our toys are always fully charged and ready to go.
Others have likely done similar things but I thought I’d share.
We use a old pleather briefcase. It has plenty of storage and it closes and locks. A simple thumb code and the treasure box is open. We put the briefcase in bottom of nightstand and noone knows any thing is odd about it. I have drilled small slots in back that I can run cords into it but I don’t like leaving anything plugged in for fear of a fire. I just usually plug in beside the bed at night and restore in case in morning.
I also gave my brother and my best friend the same message. If something happens to me and DW just go to my room grab briefcase and destroy it privately. Hate for other family members to find out our kinky dark games!
My wife and I only started using toys in recent months. We just never thought of using such devices, but it is a great change. The more I research, the more I see that couples using toys is really very common (and not wrong).
We store ours in a metal box with a key lock. We have wondered about what would happen if people found the box and smashed it open…
The charging option described sounds great, but I wonder if batteries are easier?
It’s worth thinking about who will find them when you are gone. When my Grandpa died and we cleaned out his house we found a very old, electric vibrator. It had multiple heads and was actually kind of scary looking. I don’t know whether he and Grandma didn’t care for it and just stashed it because they never threw anything away or if they kept it for all the fond memories, but it was a little weird to have the whole family standing around it (first momentarily trying to figure out what it was, then) contemplating our dearly departed in their most private moments!
Our oldest, who is now married but wasn’t at the time, got his shock factor in when he was shopping on his dads Amazon account and saw “suggested items” because of past purchases. 😯 He and his wife enjoy their own toys now and we have had discussions about them more than once.
Our son who is still at home is a teen, so we bought a chest that has a lock. Safe storage, easy access. I suppose we have to get comfortable in identifying that one trusted friend to go in if something happens to both of us at the same time who can discreetly dispose of our goods.
