Parabens – Part IV

Well kids, it is that time of year again.  The Scientific Commission on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has re-evaluated propylparaben and butylparaben for safety.

As you may remember, after multiple reviews of methylparaben and ethylparaben the SCCS found them to be completely safe for human use.  Even taking into account exposure through several products per day.

Not bad.

So let’s get to propylparaben and butylparaben.  This opinion was published on May 3, 2013.  You can find the actual report here: http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/consumer_safety/docs/sccs_o_132.pdf  (Warning: legal language and science presented!)

The opinion was based on two key questions.

1. Taking into consideration recent data, does the SCCS consider that its opinions of 2010 (SCCS/1348) and 2011 (SCCS/1446) on propylparaben when it is used as preservative in cosmetics products, both intended for adults and young children, need to be updated? 

2. Taking into consideration recent data, does the SCCS consider that its opinions of 2010 (SCCS/1348) and 2011 (SCCS/1446) on butylparaben when it is used as preservative in cosmetics products, both intended for adults and young children, need to be updated?

Bottom Line: No.

However, there is significant concern about difference in the toxicokinetics of parabens in the rat model used vs. humans.  In fact, several member states of the EU have banned the use of propylparaben and butylparaben for use in products for children under the age of 3 years.  The main areas of concern are in the nappy (diaper) area and the use of sunscreens.  It is recommended that children under the age of three should be protected from the sun by physical means.  Use umbrellas, hats, long-sleeved shirts, etc.

Now you may think that you did not have to do that when you were young.  But way back then we had a protective ozone layer which sadly has been slowly destroyed, letting much more radiation through to us.  It is a different world my friend.

So, are parabens safe?  Looks that way.  Effective, over 100 years of safe usage and financially prudent. There are lots of newer preservatives out there, but we do not know the effects of long-term use yet.  Personally, I like parabens.  But everyone is willing to take different levels of risks and Dr. Tim  is doing many studies on new preservatives.  I’m looking for that perfect preservative that will save the world.

After all, Doc Johnson wants all of our friends to live long and buy our products often!

Love you guys and gals!

The Merry Month of May (or, Get a Grip on Yourself!)

Here we are with May more than half over and I haven’t even talked about Masturbation Month!  (Been too busy practicing…)

That’s not true.  I am actually a professional at it now and don’t need to practice.  But if you believe the athletic drink commercials on the television, then you know that even the pros log endless hours honing their craft.  And if masturbation was on Olympic event, I would certainly take home the gold.  Probably with sticky hands.  (Countless hours honing my log)

Relax men.  Doc Johnson and good old Dr Tim are here to help.

We have everything you need to get it on, get it off and clean up.

Like to have your balls tugged while you jack off?  We’ve got you covered.

Grabs those nuts and holds 'em right!

Or maybe you like to have your shaft caressed but keep that dick head free for “other” fun?

Go ahead, add some clothespins to the head.

Maybe, you would like to cum in a pornstar’s mouth?

I’m telling you.  We have masturbators shaped like lips, pussy and asshole.  Some of your favorite adult film stars and some more abstract shapes.

Dig those curves!

Dig those curves!

If you want to stick you dick in it, Doc Johnson has it.

3401_02_bu 5350_01_BX_FR 5410_01_BU_D2 5542_06_BU_D1Men, women, trannies, light or dark, we have you covered.  Pick something, stick your dick in it and stroke away the night.

Don’t forget the lube!

Water-based but feels like silicone!

Whether you are using a toy or your hand, lube it up!  No one likes a friction-burned cock.  Well, OK, some people do, but they have their own thing going on.

May is Masturbation Month.  And if you are so inspired, go here: http://masturbate-a-thon.com/.  Get your pledge forms filled out and participate!

Who said that jerking off was a waste of time?

Entering the Home Stretch (or, Dream BIG!)

What a big asshole!

With whom am I angry?  No one.  No one at all.  Today we talk about stretching.  Not stretch marks, not playing 21 when you are 70.  Orifice stretching.

Over 11 inches around!

Over 11 inches around!

That’s right folks, we are stretching open your asshole!  Some people develop a real fetish about how far they can enlarge their anal opening.  Why?  Who knows?  One suggestion is that taking something bigger each time is like losing your virginity all over again.  Start small, and sooner or later, we have a new car port.

So how to start?  Well, remember that time your finger broke through the toilet paper and your eyes flew open when you sank in knuckle-deep?  That’s one way.  Or you could start with a small dildo.  Or…

Work it up or work your way down!

Work it up or work your way down!

Doc Johnson has all types of toys and devices to satisfy all of your anal needs.  Now you may be saying, “Dr Tim, those look so cold and impersonal.  How can I get a human touch without actually involving another human?”  We can help.

Feels so good!

Feels so good!

See?  We are here to help you open up and let the sun shine in!  Even if it is the place “where the sun doesn’t shine,” usually.

That doesn’t actually address why people stuff such large toys into their openings.  Some like the feeling of fullness, being airtight.  Others take the humiliation route (keep it consensual!) and like to be “forced” into surrendering themselves to massive insertions.  I know a couple of people who just like the challenge and want to be known as the one who sat on a Honda and it disappeared!

Now Dr Tim loves a nice, easy access orifice, but I would like to them to be able to feel me as well.  So let’s take just a moment or two and talk about taking care of your ass.

Actually, let me refer you to a very wise and learned blog post: https://quantumcogitation.com/2010/04/30/interesting-question-caution-naughtiness-ahead/

There I cover the anatomy of the anus, different scenarios and good things about butt-fucking.  Just remember a few things: Keep your ass clean, do your kegels and use lots and lots of lube!  (Did I mention that Doc Johnson sells lubricants?  Thought so.  Daddy needs to get paid!)

Water-based but feels like silicone!

Water-based but feels like silicone!

So spank it, lick it, fuck it, kiss it, spread it and take pictures!  Just remember to love your asshole and use genuine Doc Johnson lubes and toys.  (And be on the look out for our Oralove flushable feminine hygiene wipes!)

Care & Feeding (or Keeping your dildo happy)

Dildos.  Vibrators.  Soybeans.  Tofu.  (Well, they are meat substitutes…)

I am talking about the care and maintenance of your Mom’s Best Friend.

We get many questions about what lubricants to use with which toys, so I thought I would run down the list.

UR3:

0271_02_BU

Lifelike material – Phthalate Free: Use water-based lube.  Sure, you could use silicone lube, but be sure to wash that bad boy off right away!

PVC Soft

0249_04_BU

Bendable – Phthalate Free: Use water-based lube.  Yes, you can use silicone too or even Crisco, but wash it up when you finish!

PVC Hard

0926_01_BU

Non-flexible – Phthalate Free: Any old lube you want to use!  Wash afterwards.  (Hey!  Did you see this one on House of Lies?  You HAVE to get Showtime!)

Jelly

7001_03_BU

Soft – Bendable – Phthalate Free: Use water-based lube!

Silicone:

0110_10_BU

100% Platinum Cured Silicone: Use water-based lube!  Some silicone toys are incompatible with some silicone lubes.  Makes them melt.  Tread carefully and if you insist on using a silicone based lube, wash, wash, wash right away after use.

Now I didn’t want you guys to feel left out although I know quite a few of you use vibrators and dildos too.  So:

Please her, tease her, love her and use her.  But you must wash her too!  Preferably before you fall asleep…

Black Roses (or, We Haz Them)

How was your Valentines Day?  Did you get any?

C’mon, even married people get laid on Valentines Day.  It is practically the law.  (Federal law, it is much more than a state thing.)

You didn’t? well, even women get blue balls…

Blue Balls.  We Has ‘Em.  However, they are the amazing Blooming Ben Wa Balls in the brilliant Black Rose line by Doc Johnson!

If they turn this color, OUCH!

If they turn this color, OUCH!

Now that sounds like much more fun, doesn’t it?

Yes, Valentines Day is much like Bondage & Discipline.  You always hurt the one you love.  And boy, at Doc Johnson do we have some classy ways to do it too.  We’ve got everything!  Harnesses, cuffs, strap-ons, paddles, whips and other weapons of ass destruction.  Spice up your love life.  These can be used in any room of the house.  This is a very nice selection of products.  Wanna see some more pictures?  Me too!

So you are probably thinking, “Strap-ons are über-cool!  But is that the only thrill available for anal pleasure?”

Fear not my bung-loving lovers.  We have some amazing purple butt plugs for you in the very same Black Rose line.  (Yes, purple product in Black Rose.  Bruises often turn purple before they go black.  Won’t tell you exactly how I know, but I’m sure you can find the videos on-line.  Can’t you, you little web-monkeys?)

2302_05_BU

And what’s that?  An AMAZING lubricant from Good Old Dr Tim’s research lab!  What a wonderful world!  Remember:  Doc Johnson lubes help you get in and get back out easily, smoothly and with oh so much pleasure!

It is not too late!  Since here and now we are alive, go get some of those great Doc Johnson toys and lubes!  Show yourself or your significant other(s) how much you care.  Tie them up or let yourself be tied up to let your imagination soar.  Imagine how you will please your bound beauty.  Or how they will please you.  Life is good.  Seize the Day!

As for Dr Tim?  Just keep those cards, letters, pictures and videos coming in!  You inspire me.  Yes you do.  After all, how do you think I test all these lubes and potions?  My only thoughts are about you.

And while I am not sure this is what Linda Ronstadt was thinking about when she recorded her album Living in the USA back in 1978, just send me Black Roses…

Advanced Research! (or, Come and knock on our door…)

Greetings Earthlings!  (And a cheerful “Howdy” to all of my off-world fans!)

As you know, Dr Tim takes his job very seriously.

Today as I was studying a trade journal, I ran across an interesting article with a very interesting concept.  It seems that a major brand of chips was going to launch some new packaging and they wanted a specific feel to go with it.  Here is a short blurb about their strategy:

“…As part of the research process, the corporate team actually partied with consumers in their own homes, versus focus group testing, to immerse themselves in what defines a party. Part of this included observing what resonates with consumers based on the visual influencers in their environment, in addition to what they served, what other brands they identified with, and how they entertained…”

WOW!

Can you see where I am going with this?

In order to help me help you, I am willing to get down with you in your own home, to discover what defines “sex” to you.  I will observe what influences your bedroom behaviour, what you use and what items you identify with during sex.

That’s right!  You too can have Dr Tim join you in your bedroom in the interest of science!  I will lend a hand, steady the ladder and make notes about your preferred lube for butt-fucking, which dildo you like or do you want a strap-on?  Do you use any flavoring enhancers during blow jobs or kitty licking?  What about rimming?  Don’t forget about the rimming!

And there is always Fifty Shades of WHOO-HOO!!!  Whip me, beat me, feel me, fuck me, bite me, burn me, cum on my tits and get on with your life!

I will be there for you so that the Mighty Doc Johnson can address your needs even more directly than before…

You will think we designed these toys just for you and you know what?  You will be one hundred percent correct.

So let me know if you are ready to enter the world of scientific research.  We’ll meet in your bedroom, backroom, garage, alley, dungeon or wherever.  I’ll be the one with the lab coat, camcorder and big smile.

It’s on Baby.  It’s on!

(Mothers of five-year olds must secure a sitter before actual action ensues…)

‘Tis The Season! (or, Gimmie, Gimmie!)

Ah, the holidays!

What a wonderful time to look back, review your year and make the appropriate adjustments so that the coming year is even better.  You become a better person, the type of person you had always hoped that you would be when you grew up.  Kind, generous, respected and well-loved.

Time to get nostalgic about family, friends, lost or found loves.  Tradition.

Speaking of tradition, WHAT DID YOU GET ME?????

Most of you were nice.  Some of you were very naughty.  And a few of you were nicely naughty and sent Dr Tim pictures and videos of yourselves using your fine Doc Johnson toys and lubricants!  Warms my heart.  Truly!  No cash, but a warm fuzzy feeling like when she hasn’t shaved for a week or so.

So how was your year?  Did you finally find a woman who was “all-access?”  Did you find a man who wasn’t threatened by your toys or that strap-on dildo you bought?

My year was great.  Here at Doc Johnson we had some very successful shows including a spectacular one at Hustler Hollywood!  It was all about the Wonderland.

It was AMAZING!

It was AMAZING!

Other awesome stuff happened too.  Great folks getting their body parts molded, like James Deen and Vicky Vette.  It was an incredibly exciting year!

And wait until you see 2013!  We have new toys and new lubricants coming out that will blow your mind.  And help you get blown as well.

I mean, after all, what are the holidays without a heaping dose of holiday sex?

Someone asked the other day if I had a favorite sex toy.  Of course I do!  It’s Debi Diamond!  (A kind gentle soul who is sexy and kinky to the core.  Now if I could get her and Christy Canyon at the same time…)

What better gift to give a loved one, or stranger, than a long slow blowjob or maybe some anal sex?  Men and women around the globe would love to receive those presents.  Many at the same time.  Ever been to an out-of-control office party?  Like that only everyone keeps their jobs.

And Doc Johnson is there to supply all of your sexual accessories.  Your orientation doesn’t matter, we have what you need.  All types of dildos, vibrators, masturbators, lubes and lotions.  We help make the season bright.  Or turn off the lights, we are just happy to be there with you.

So don’t be selfish this season.  Give orgasms to everyone you meet.  And maybe you will receive a few of your own.  No matter the fetish or form, we are here for you.

And like Dr Tim always says, unless he doesn’t, “I don’t judge.  I just want to hold the camcorder.”

Merry Christmas everyone!  And until next year, enjoy your ho, ho, hos!
