Jen Doak is a respected veteran of the Seattle restaurant scene. Born in nearby Newcastle, she attracted a loyal clientele managing The Tasting Room and working some shifts at Maria Hines’s now-closed restaurants, Tilth and Agrodolce.

If you're into BDSM, there's an infinite number of ways to incorporate sex toys into your kinky bedroom routine. You can totally use mainstream sex toys, like vibrators, cock rings, and anal plugs. (Think: using a vibrator on your partner as you practice orgasm denial, or "punishing" your submissive partner by having them wear a butt plug out to dinner.)
