Need feedback from ladies

First of all I am quite serious about this question and I have been thinking about it for more than a year, so please read on. I am just looking for the female point of view.

My wife and I have enjoyed many sex toys in our marriage. I have noticed a complete lack of INTIMATE toys that provide an in and out 'stroke' for women. When I search for them online so many look like industrial machinery. I want something a lady could keep in her bedroom and feel comfortable using. I think I could really make something that women would want and enjoy, not something just for their men to watch them use. It would be something you could even use under the covers of your bed.I think I have an idea that would fit a woman's body and get rid of the negatives of the current choices.

I have a technical degree and so I understand ergonomics and design. I know my wife would be OK helping me with it, but at some point I would need more feedback about the product so that it would have a form that works for all variations in that region of a woman's body. Without that it would pretty much be a worthless endeavor.

Could the ladies on this forum please give me some suggestions about how (or if) I should proceed? Do YOU think there is even a desire from women for this? Who would really even test this for me? Is this something I should pursue? If my wife was the person asking the questions, would that make it easier for a lady to consider testing it? It would be much better if I talked to the ladies directly about what works and what could be better, but I doubt most women would even be comfortable with that.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Welcome to the board, Rocket.

I think it sounds like an interesting idea. Have you thought about the possibility of marketing the concept to a larger toy manufacturing company? They would already have the resources to have it made, tested and built-in clientele to purchase it.

I have thought about selling the idea. If I did everything myself it I would take into consideration everything that the current ones don't. Not clunky and loud, can move with the body, give the sensation that 95% of woman who buy it would want etc. If I were to just sell the idea, I wouldn't have any control over those things. It seems to me that most toys are gimicky, unreliable, and seem to be done without a lot of input from their target consumers.

I'm not to educated on the toys. I know there are many many many of them. I do have a few that I have used. What I would like to know if there would be one that could expand. Make itself thicker with heat. I know when my husband is about to cum he gets hotter and bigger and I think it feels wonderful. You know thicker. Something that could go down in size then expand again. Something that is very noticeable with something that maybe not vibrate or I guess it could could but massage and has a pulse. I think that would feel wonderfully relaxing!! If there is anything like that, then I'm sorry I'm to late and missed the boat and where could I get one!! LOL

Welcome to the board, M.

There are inflatable dildos. From what I know of them, they can be inflated to a larger size once inside of you.

Try googling "inflatable dildo" and you'll get lots of hits for those.

If you decide to give one a try, it would be great if you would share your opinion of it with us ~ we love reviews!
