I don't ever recall scaring away any guys after introducing them to my toys....

Everyone loves a kinkster. In this day and age, you'll keep 'em cumming back if they think they're going to have an adventurous sex life with you that won't get boring. Double-bonus points if you introduce them to something they haven't tried before and they love it!
