Sextoy.com generously let me review the For Your Nymphomation XL Adult Toybox, which I have had my eye on for -months-. Prior to getting this item, my toys were all over the place, as is true of many reviewers and toy lovers. I had most in a drawer of a small bureau in my bedroom, or in the headboard cubbies. When I first looked over the different storage options I had thought that the XL Toybox was going to be more than enough, and that I would likely never amass enough items that I actually like/use to warrant needing the Adult Toychest. Well now that my collection includes 3 large electric vibes and bdsm items…..it’s quite possible that I could use up most or all of the space in that Toychest if I also put in my leather restraint gear. However, if I were to do that, I likely would have a hard time lifting that darn thing or carting it anywhere of distance. As it is, I have the Toybox filled and it’s quite heavy (I’m sure thanks in part to the Pure Wand).

I’m way impressed. It’s very sturdy. The sides/top/bottom are all firm; even when empty it retains its shape. This means that unlike the malleable toy bags, there will be no weird lumpiness when it’s all zipped up. The lock is good quality for just a skeleton-key sort. You could also purchase a small combination lock if you’re concerned about losing the keys or you want better security.

When I got this item, I asked Vera of FYN to please include the 3-pack of mesh pockets as well (I paid a few dollars extra for these). I’m very very glad I did so! Any toy that is silicone or rubber/jelly, that is shiny (as opposed to a powder/satin finish) is going to “stick” to the PVC pouches that are standard – meaning putting the toys in, especially if it’s a tight fit, will be a tad difficult. Getting the extra pouches allowed me better options. I also noticed that the mesh pouches allow for more girth. When comparing a PVC and mesh that are nearly identical in size (mesh is 1/4″ longer) I was able to easily zipper it up with the Pleasure Tops and the Bnaughty (in its fabric bag), whereas I was barely able to do the same with the PVC pouch.


This is a photo of the inside, from the site, showing all the PVC pouches that are included.


This is my case. It was a bit of a puzzle and squeeze getting all the pouches onto the Velcro strips, but I did it! Well, one of the PVC’s is inside the mesh bag there on the right, I put my glass dildo in it so that it wouldn’t get banged by the heavy Pure Wand and possibly get chipped.


This is to give a better visual reference of the case size

The sizes of the pouches are as follows: (site gives different measurements slightly, but I used my ruler!)

PVC Pouches Included:

  • 8.5″ x 6.5″
  • 8.5″ x 4.25″
  • 5.5″ x 3.75″ (toy cleaners and samples)
  • 5.25″ x 2.75″ (lube)
  • 2.5″ x 4.25″ (batteries)
  • 2.5″ x 2.5″  (condoms)

3-pack of Mesh Pouches:

  • 9″ x 5.5″
  • 9″ x 4.25″
  • 11.5″ x 6″

The PVC pouches are necessary for any item like lube, cleaners, etc that could possibly leak. I also think their condom pouch is necessary to avoid excess wear and tear to the foil pouch, which could happen if they were just stored in a mesh pouch.

There’s really only one known toy that won’t fit in this case, and that’s the Fleshlight. FYN created the Big Foot with the Fleshlight in mind, though.

Sextoys More Storage

Nov 292008


I haven’t purchased a “toy storage” item in a long time….Couple years ago was my first and only purchase of one…Back when we didn’t know much about sextoys (read: next to nothing) and didn’t have many. It was smaller than I expected, but served it’s purpose until I soon outgrew it with my restraints.

So one of the things I was excited about with sextoy.com is their toy storage section. They currently carry, amongst other brands, stuff from Devine and For Your Nymphomation. When I chose this case to review, I did so based purely on the size and what was available in their inventory at the time. I wanted something that could fit the Hitachi. It locks, too, which is always a plus. Since there is only one view of this case available on the site, or really any site for that matter that carries it, I’ve taken some lovely photos for you.

Description from the site:

Secure larger than life toys, titillating DVDs and provocative lingerie with confidence in DevineToys spacious locking case. Created of trendy faux crocodile skin, accented with internal loops for oils, batteries and condoms, and boasting a water resistant lining and supported base. So fabulous it doubles as a chic purse or proactive overnight bag. 14.5 x 5.5 x 5.5


  • It’s roomy. I put in there the toys I might use the most, should I have an excursion outside my bedroom. I have the Hitachi AND the Miracle Massager, with the Attachment. Njoy Pure Wand, Gigi, a bullet vibe, the Feeldoe, the large blue VinylVengence dildo, a travel pack of toywipes, a sample pack or two of lube, my suede flogger and my leather slapper. There was still room, so I got out my restraints and packed in there my wrist and ankle cuffs which were able to lay out flat, the collar, metal connectors and a small blindfold and my 16-ft length of rope. Fucking thing is HEAVY, but it all fit in there without strain to the zipper.


  • It does look cool. Shinyish faux croc leather. No one would guess immediately that it’s full of sextoys.


  • Ok sure it all fit in there – but it’s akin to just throwing it all in a tote. There’s no separation. It claims there’s a separation thingiemabobber in the middle, but it’s only attached at the sides…separation? ehhh, not so much.


  • It says there are loops for “lube, condoms, batteries”….there’s 2 elastic loops, but they really wouldn’t hold squat.
  • The lock leaves something to be desired. It took me a minute or two to figure out how to put the zipper pulls together to lock it – and it’s a very cheap lock with a bad “skeleton” key. One of mine keeps getting jammed in there and I eventually gave up on getting it out. (Also, it was wrapped up in tissue paper, and I had to HUNT for it, almost didn’t find it)


  • It doesn’t hold it’s shape as well as I personally would like. When it arrived via UPS, I almost didn’t think it was in the package because it was flat, in a bubble mailer. It says there’s a “supported base”, but it’s really just a covered sturdy piece of …. something, that sets in the bottom and isn’t even secured.

Conclusion: For the price, it holds a heck of a lot. And if you’re handy like that and have pouches/bags for your toys so they’re all separate and safe, and don’t care about having to remove 6 to get to ones at the bottom – it’s great. If you want more organization and better layout/accessibility…..upgrade to the FYN XL Toybox (update 2014: sorry….FYN went out of business!).
