Term Definition
ABDL
An acronym for Adult Baby Diaper Lover. Basically, someone who likes little play and enjoys wearing diapers or nappies while not necessarily soiling them.
ABS
ABS is a low cost engineering plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate. ABS is an ideal material for sex toy applications as it is phthalate free and none porous.
Affiliate Links
A special link that if followed and a product is purchased I get a small commission on that sale at no extra cost to the buyer. This money is re-invested in my site to offset its running costs and to allow me to buy more sex toys to review. More information of affiliate links is available on my Disclosure Page.
Aloe Vera
Sometimes labeled as Aloe Barbadensis, they are synonymous. Aloe vera is a plant that is typically used as a cooling or pain relief gel. It is seen in a number of lubes because it can have a cooling effect, and, in particular, is found in anal lubes as an alternative to benzocaine. Aloe vera is considered to be very vagina-friendly, and to even help balance vaginal flora and prevent infections.
Synonyms - Aloe Barbadensis
Aspartame
Aspartame is an artificial, non-saccharide sweetener used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages. In the European Union, it is codified as E951. Aspartame is a methyl ester of the aspartic acid/phenylalanine dipeptide
BDSM
BDSM is a variety of erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other interpersonal dynamics. BDSM is an acronym of "Bondage Discipline", "Dominance and submission", "Sadomasochism and Masochism". Given the wide range of activities, some of which may be engaged in by people not considering themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent on self-identification and shared experience. Interest in BDSM can range from one-time experimentation to a lifestyle of kink.
BiPhasic AC
A waveform used by some e-stim systems that discharges energy in two phases (first positive, then negative).
Synonyms - BiPhasic
Bipolar

Term used in Electrosex for an electrode with two cables going to it. It means that it has two electrode faces on it so you can use it on its own without a second electrode. Often insertable electrodes are bipolar.

Synonyms - bi-polar
Borosilicate

BPA
Bisphenol A (BPA) is found in the hard plastic bottles many people use every day. It can imitate the body's hormones, and it can interfere with the production, secretion, transport, action, function, and elimination of natural hormones. BPA can behave in a similar way to estrogen and other hormones in the human body. BPA is not used in the manufacture of PET plastics, these are class 1 plastics and are not recyclable.
Synonyms - Bisphenol-A
CE
CE Testing. Most major electronics manufacturers are concerned with the marketing of consumer, commercial, medical, or light industrial products in the European Union (EU). To apply the CE mark, the EU's directives outline requirements for regulatory compliance for most electrical and electronic products. It means the product satisfies the legislative requirements to be sold here.
