Ever noticed that so many sex toys are that obnoxious Barbie pink colour? After purple, pink is the most common colour for sex toys - but it doesn’t have to be that way!

One of our favourite sex toy manufacturers of all time, Fun Factory, have proved that there’s nothing at all wrong with a toy in blue or lime green. Fun Factory also makes some perfectly respectable toys in more mature hues - hello eggplant purple and black!

Pink is just dandy, of course, and if sex toys in sherbety shades are right up your alley, then lucky you. For the rest of us, though, we might have to look a little harder to find sex toys that don’t resemble… well, just toys.
If you’re not a very girly girl and wouldn’t dream of owning pink clothing, then why settle for a pink sex toy? Try more grown up blues, yellows or even greens - and if you’re feeling fancy you could even experiment with gorgeous blown glass dildos that make some of the cheaper sex toys on the market look like they came out of a Christmas cracker.
In fact, once you open your eyes to the world of possibility when it comes to sex toys, you’ll wonder why boring old pink became the default in the first place (we actually know... they have been manufactured by men, under the assumption they know what every girl wants). If you have a collector’s spirit, try toys in different materials. Body grade silicone isn’t particularly sexy-sounding but is safe and hypoallergenic, and if you feel adventurous, there are beautiful pieces made of steel, leather or even wood (we’re told there are no splinters involved!).
Owning a sex toy should be fun, guilt-free and all about you - you may find yourself rolling your eyes at the pink offerings on many sex toy websites, but keep your ears pricked and you’ll find plenty of alternatives.
