We get it. Pleasure toys can sometimes seem like foreign objects, designed in outer space, inspired by abstract concepts. So, instead of alienating ourselves, we're embracing the strange with a sense of curiosity in our First Impressions series.

First Impressions encourages all of us to see pleasure toys differently by sharing the thoughts, feelings and – impressions – of toys within our range from people within our community.

And whether you, like Themme Fatale, think vaginal weight trainers look like mini shake weights or that a vibe has the strange likeness to EC, the faceless doll from ABC's Lift Off, you aren't alone.

Familiarise yourself with the wonderful and sometimes weird world of pleasure, one toy at a time.
