I hated those terms. Insertables could mean you insert it into yourself or you insert yourself into it. Penetrable could mean it penetrates you or you penetrate it. They are not newbie friendly terms. Dildos and masturbators are industry standard terms. Anyone looking for sex toys knows what they mean. If you feel those terms are naughty, that's entirely your perception. There's nothing naughty about sex. That perception needs to die.ImagineToothless wrote:Phelvia wrote:Personally I like insertables and penetrables. It sounded neutral. I hate the word dildo and even more, "masturbators". Who knows, maybe this was part of the collab with Kink.com, because, as I said before, the wording on BD is like a low key version now.QueenCheetah93 wrote:Terms - This goes along with the above. I don't have as much as a problem with "dildos"... but masturbators? Really? Insertables and penetrables were good descriptive terms that also were very trans and non-binary inclusive. Again, it reads really "sex store" now. I think you guys have been to one too many fetish cons. Not even the kink community talks like this.
Personally I think masturbators is too broad and something like sleeves would have been better, but whatever.
In what way is "dildo" offensive to the trans community?
