Sometimes, there's a lesson involved, such as "Like This", where a woman uses what many consider the "Cadillac of vibrators", the ultra-powerful plug-in vibe Hitachi Magic Wand (or "electric miracle", in the story), to show her lover exactly what she does when she's alone. For others, toys are part of BDSM play, especially spanking, and you can read about the intense strokes of a cane in "Getting It Right".
