Ginger Leigh

I am a sex toy blogger, burlesque performer, a girlfriend, a coffee addict, lover of sushi and peanut butter.  Here is my official bio: 

Ginger Leigh entered the land of sex toys by way of burlesque.  She entered the world of burlesque through years of dance training and even a degree in Dance Studies from University of South Florida.  Not only does she perform in, but she is the Assistant Director of an internationally recognized burlesque troupe.  While her roots are in ballet and modern, she loves twirling her tassels and having her hand in the running of a successful neo-vaudevillian classic burlesque show, the Peek-A-Boo Revue. 

Ginger now gets to do two of her favorite things in this world, talk about sex toys and perform.  She spends many of her evenings rehearsing, choreographing and making costumes that sparkle and come off with ease.  By day, she works for sextoys.com and blogs about sex toys.  Ginger's aim is to discuss matters of the sex toy kind with a bit of humor and in such a way that is palatable to all readers, namely the ladies.  She hopes to make her writing fun to read, while still educational.  Ginger believes that sexuality and sex toys alike should not be viewed as dark embarrassing secrets.  Instead, sexuality should be embraced as a natural part of life, but never taken too seriously.  With this mind set, she stands firm in that sex toys and burlesque make for a great partnership.  Thus, the birth of SexToysForLadies.com.

What's in your lube? Lotion? Toothpaste?

I always encourage people to use personal lubricant.  It tends to make all matters in the bedroom better.  Whether you are alone, with a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or the like you should always have plenty of lube on hand.  It encourages the body to produce natural lubrication and ensures comfortable and pleasurable masturbation, foreplay and intercourse. Before you purchase that bottle of lube from the drug store, go ahead and read the ingredients listed on the label - even if you are in a hurry. ...more

Is foreplay important?

A lot of emphasis is put on foreplay.  More often than not sexologists stress the importance of it for the physical and mental enjoyment of sex - especially for women.  We all know there is no switch that allows you to jump from the work or family mind set to the romance mind set.  Physically, warm up is necessary to get the lubrication going for comfortable and pleasurable intercourse.  ...more
