The economy is down, unemployment is on the rise, but people are as horny as ever. This has led to more and more folks economizing in the bedroom. Whether its the Good Will, Car Boot Sales, or the recycling bin the hunt is on for sex toys - almost new, handy man's specials, or as-is. Not all toys are amenable to re-use, and not all toys can be refurbished, so DR. Prince has put together this guide, breaking down selection and assessment into several easy steps.

Making the Right Purchase

KISS

Keep It Simple - a nice hard latex dildo can last 20+ years and go from one happy owner to another without distress. Such simple hand-job-me-downs are the best bargains. Basic black is also a smart choice - it really hides the wear and tear and is ideal for gift-giving.

Make Sure It's a Sex Toy

Far too often over-anxious bargain hunters buy items that are advertised as a sex toy on-line, or the novice thinks its a rare find. Take something home that’s not what you think it is and a restraining order will be your "Thank You" card. It makes sense to read the label carefully.

Hidden Treasures

The other day I was going from car boot sale to car boot sale hunting for a 1957 Dale Evan's pocket rocket, when I found an item just sitting next to a box of punctured inflatable women. I scooped up this bargain for 5 pounds, recognizing it as a genuine 2001 Traci Lords moulded vagina. All I needed to do was take it home and do a little clean-up!

Making It As Good As New

Stains

Proper stain assessment is vital to properly selecting and refurbishing a previously owned sex toy, in order to assure safe use, and years of enjoyment. Seminal fluid and lube stains, indicated by a satin-like finish and glossy-finish respectively, are easy to clean with warm, soapy, water. Dark brown stains either indicate heavy use, or anal penetration without proper cleaning, or both. While soap and water will make a cosmetic fix, a good long soak in a mild bleach solution will ensure hygiene. While this may lighten the colour, making a big black dildo more of a massive mocha one, it is worth the loss in aesthetics. Unidentifiable stains, sometimes red, yellow, or purple, are the bane of most bargain hunters. The sources of these stains can vary widely. While the same long soak in a mild bleach solution along with a soap and water scrub will make the toy hygenic, these stains are liable to remain. Do not use touch up paint! These paints, although non-toxic, can be very irritating to mucous membranes. Unfortunately, you'll probably have to learn to live with these stains. Some might be difficult to see anyway, others you can pretend to be birthmarks or venous malformations, and any of them can be used as useful "landmarks" when one partner is providing instructions to another. For example: "Al, stick it in until the purple mark disappears, then turn it so you can see that yellow thing."

Wear and Tear

Some level of wear and tear is expected in a sex toy with any mileage on it. We're lucky that modern materials wear so well. Misshapen toys can either be used as-is like a "novelty" device, or can be reformed by carefully re-shaping and warming in the oven.
Actual wear will often appear as rough spots, dents, or rips. Avoid the temptation to re-glue such damage, as most adhesives are not biocompatible, and prone to break off in small, hard bits. Again, using as-is and enjoying the uniqueness brought on by someone's previous enjoyment is probably the best approach.

An aside on patches: Inflatable women are easily patched with store-bought patch kits. Your "date" may not be able to maintain the same level of air pressure and therefore should be handled with care. Most of these patch kits will not adhere well when the puncture is on or around the artificial "genitalia" or anus.


Odours

This is the most challenging aspect of used-sex-toy-refurbishment. Nothing lowers the value of these collectibles like the musky scent caused by years of use and storage in warm, damp places. If the aforementioned bleach bath does not remove the odour your only option is to mask the offending scent. This can be done as part of the preparation of the toy before use (a nice spritz of cologne or a dash of Jack Daniels) or you can try a more permanent cover-up. I had great success covering the stench of a mechanical vagina by sealing it in a cardboard box for a month wrapped tightly in some freshly washed panties I'd "borrowed" from my local laundromat.

Re-selling

While re-using old toys after you've put in the sweat equity to clean them up is satisfying, re-selling the toys for a profit is both fun and a proven money-maker. The previously shown Traci Lords moulded vagina ended up as a custom re-build job for a local businessman from the Middle East:
All I did was darken the skin tone (sorry guys, the method is patented pending) and glue on a burqa that my wife sewed from some old curtains.
That 5 pound purchase netted me 35 pounds retail!


Happy Hunting!
