Erotic Objects Shunga

A little while ago I spoke of both Shunga and the fact that dildos are far more ancient than many people think.

The Ukiyo-e (which means “pictures of the floating world”) period lasted from the 1670’s until around 1912. Although not all the art is sexual (shunga), here is a panel from the Ukiyo-e Shunga period that details depicts a set of “Erotic Objects” traditionally used in Japan. Some of these sex toys are still popular today! Can you name them all?

Spoiler ahead!

I see a Shibari bound penis, Shibari cording, cock cage, pocket pussy, several kinds of cock rings (beaded and solid), Ben Wa Beads, a penis extender (the cup-looking thing), a penis sheath (the over sized penis) and a double-ended dildo. I’m not sure what the white tied things are, unfortunately.
