Em & Lo,
I am a 68-year-old, single great-grandmother and I have been celibate for at least 20 years. Well, I've been getting urges and don't quite know what to do about them. I currently don't have any male companionship so I thought about toys. What would you suggest?
Yay! It's never too late to start treating yourself right. Since you're obviously computer savvy, we recommend visiting a female-friendly, online sex toy store like Babeland.com or Goodvibes.com. Once there, do a search for ergonomic toys (we linked these two stores' urls to their respective "ergonomic" search results pages to save you the trouble)--the results will almost always feature well-made, nicely designed toys, like Fun Factory's Delight (pictured above), that are easy to use and don't come in any cheap, offensive packaging.

Take a look and think about what you'd like: external vibration, penetration, or both? Based on your answer to that question, pick a toy that fits that description as well as your price range (if possible, we'd be willing to spend at least 50 bucks). And make sure you also get some nice, glycerin-free, water-based lube. As we get older, things tend to get a little more dry downtown--lubricant will help grease the wheels of your toy exploration.
