Bovivet cheaper

We are lowering the price for the (already cheap) Bovivet lubricant from 9.68€/l to 8€/l permanently.
The strange old price has not been changed since the German sales tax was increased from 16% to 19%. That was a LONG time ago.

Note that this is a lubricant and thus we sell it for lube-play on latex, where lots of lube is needed. 😉

We’re back

blog logo

We have returned from the holidays and are already preparing all the shipments that have accumulated during the yearly vacation.
(And also a metric ton of yearly paperwork.)

No new DHL prices

DHL in Germany currently is in the news because DHL will increase prices for end customers starting on the 1st of January.

However, for business customers that already happend at the 1st of September this year.
So we will not increase our shipping prices with the new year.

Holidays 2019

Just as every year, we will be on vacation and there will be no shipping during the holidays.
The shop is closed from 2019-12-20 until 2020-01-03.
This blog posting will be updated as new information comes in.

Last orders


The last shipping will happen on 2019-12-20 for orders played and fully payed on 2019-12-19 20:00.
If you select DHL Packstation, please make sure to include your DHL Postnummer in the address.
if you select Hermes Shop2Shop, please tell us about what Hermes shop to select via email. (Hermes wants a delivery address AND the shop.)

Last custom orders

FurryStyle will no longer accept custom orders to be finished this year effective today.

Deliveries before the holidays

We expect some last deliveries by Sidewinder Creations, FurryStyle, GLC and by Bad Wolf (including Wolf Cum Lube) early next week. We will announce them at once, so you can still place an order to be fulfilled before we have to close down and have it arrive before christmas.

Update: Bad Wolf had to cancel it’s delivery. It will arrive after the holidays. Sidewinder, FurryStyle and GLC just arrived.

DHL situation during Christmas

At the moment every DHL post office is crowded. If you can, please select a DHL Packstation instead of having anything delivered to a selected post office. Because if you do, expect very long waiting queues.

Amazon.de and Amazon.co.uk

We have shut down our presence on Amazon on the 19th of December.
This step is needed because orders made there would have to be shipped in less then 7 days and that is not possible while we are enjoying the holidays like everyone else.
Amazon will be reactivated before or very shortly after we return.

New Toy – Tainted Plu’s Butt

We actually have a new toy in stock.

But what’s the point in announcing it when you have already purchased our entire stock before we even got around to writing this blog posting.
How very inconsiderate of you lot.
😉

So here you have a few photos and plenty of time to read the detail in the linked shop page until we get another delivery.
…greedy bastards. 😉

New delivery by Exotic Erotics on it’s way

A new delivery of Dildos by Exotic Erotics (English / German) is on it’s way.

We expect it to arrive in about 10 business days (including customs). Then we just have to count, label and sort it for the new stock to be available in our shop (English Shop / German Shop). When that happend, we’ll report here again, so you can place your orders on items that are curretly still out of stock.   If you want to track this delivery, you can do so here and here.

Custom Dildos:
For just a few days after this delivery arrived and before we place our next order right away, it will be possible to order custom variation again. Just contact us via email, stating all the details like colour and firmnes. Then we’ll provide you with a custom product that can be ordered exactly 1 time via the regular ordering process. The only  difference is that it obviously takes longer to ship and we require it to be fully payed right away. Also for custom made products there is no 14 day return period.

(Yes, postings in the category „Disturbing Dildo Deliveries“ are basically copy&pasted.
There is just nothing original to write about such a thing but many people are waiting
for toys of a specific manufacturer to come in, so it’s important we post these.)

New categories

Over the years our selection of toys has grown…. a lot.
So after all this time we have taken it upon ourself to redesign the categories.
You can now start browsing either

by manufactuer

or species

or size you are looking for.

From there you can drill down further using multiple selection values.
Sadly the shop system does not allow us to add the numerical values like „usable length“ or „knot diameter“ to the automatic drill down navigation. We’ll see about ways to add that ability outself at a later time.

How we do photos and size comparisons

Why photograph yourself?
For all the different toys, we do our own photos.
This has a simple reaon. We aggregate lots of very different manufacturers. All of them do their photos differently. Some even don’t do their own photos. Some have a black background. Some a gradient. Some don’t show the specific colour variation we stock in their photos. Some leave a lot of white space around the toy, some crop very tightly. Some include some random object for a size comparison.
So to have all of them integrate nicely with the shop and have them look similar (especially when watching a shop category that is selected not by manufacturer but by species or size), we do our own photographing.

How we choose to do size comparisons.
Comparing sizes online is surprisingly difficult.

But… soda cans?
Some manufacturers and dealers include a sode can as a reference. While it may sound reasonable, it actually doesn’t work. While in your particular area only 2 or 3 sizes seem to be around and you are tempted to think that this is how big a soda can is, it isn’t. In every part of this world they are sized differently. Not just metric vs. imperial. In Europe you can see this when crossing a border to France, Poland or the Netherlands. 0.2L, 0.25L, 0.33L or 0.5L? Same volume but wide or slim? Slighly undersized at the airport to look bigger then it actually is?
This applies to any household item. We we choose not do go this way.

How about a ruler then?
We already take our own meassurements and post all length, diameter and circumfence values in standard metric and converted to imperial as product attributes. They can be searched, filtered and sorted.
It just makes no sense to do mug shots in front of some kind of metric+imperial ruler or striped background here. (Also any lens distortion would make this misleadingif the background is not right behind the shaft. A thing that is often prevented by the base of the toy.)

So what then?
What we do is to compare toys to other, common toys.
We think this is the most meaningful comparison for people. They already own one toy and can relate to how that length, knot or shape feels. If you see another toy depicted right next to the one you already know, perfect.
However… we can’t photograph every toy with every other toys we have access to.
So what do we do?
A long time ago, we selected a number of very common and distinctive toys and set one of each aside for just this reason. One of the most prominent ones being the Akita, Foxcoon and the Tiny. We have since retired the Tiny as it’s no longer as popular as it was many years ago as a first toy for many people.
We have added new toys to our collection whenever we could. Usually when we got hold of a slightly defective one. As overseas manufacturers will make very, very sure never to send anything with small defecs all across the globe, this means that we have more toys from FurryStyle then anyone else for this. We never favour any manfacturer over another and try to be perfectly fair, so I hope you accept this explanation.
From these we try to select toys of a similar shape and size that make for a meaningful comparison. If you want to compare 2 toys, chances are good both have been photographed next to the same compasiron toy and you can use both these photos along with the stated meassurements to make your decision.

Perfection?

When new deliveries come in, it’s a busy time. When these include new toys that shall be for sale as soon as possible, even more so.
Doing a dozen photographs for each one of >300 toys over many years and even a generations of photography equipment is work. Post processing every single one of them is even harder.
So while we do want to have absolutely stunning and perfectly photos, this is not practical. The reality is that we are a dealer, not an art galery and photos are but one part. Without size meassurements, weight, description, price calculation, technical details for reordering, customs and keeping up with currency fluctuations, finding and organizing the storage space for the new toy all have to be done at the same busy time. The toys need to be unpacked, cleaned, dried, new packaging printed (product safety regulations) and a lot of heavy lifting done.
So we had to come up with a style that looks good, shows off the shape, size, texture and colour of each toy very well yet can be repeated 2000 times even when in a hurry.
In the end we came up with a fixed light setup and fixed light and camera settings that can accomoate deep black, white and slightly reflective toys as well as anything from a tiny to an enourmous toy, size compasisons of two toys and group photos.

Reshoot?
We would like to come back and reshoot some of the older photos.
But running a business is hard work and this work never stops.
And the toy needs to be available, prepared hours in advances (to dry after cleaning) and be packaged and returned to the inventory later.
So the reality is that we don’t get around to actually do this very often. Sorry.

New DHL prices

We have updated our shipping rates to the new DHL prices for 2019.

Obviously they are higher (when has DHL ever lowered prices?).

Sorry. Nothing we can do about that.

Wartung bei Kreditkarten

Unser Zahlungs-Dienstleister hat uns über eine kleine Wartung informiert.
