One Ziplock Away From Ecstasy

You're doomed to endure crummy iPad pics till I feel like bringing out the camera.

You’re doomed to endure crummy iPad pics till I feel like bringing out the camera.

I have a Ziplock bag full of my favorite sex toys. Vibes, insertables, and lube. The impact toys have their own storage bag, which is way too small to hold all of our toys.

Speaking of which, anyone know of a place that sells kinky storage bags besides For Your Nymphomation? A) I’m not interested in giving them my money after how they treated reviewers with complaints about their bags, and B) they’re going out of business so by the time I actually have money to buy a new kink bag, they’ll probably be sold out of everything, anyway. I won’t stop any of you from getting in on the going-out-of-business sale, though. If you click that link up there, there’s a code on the page for 25% off. Just be forewarned…unless they’ve changed the materials they use, their bags may stain your toys. Especially any of the O2 line by Tantus.

ANYway…

I felt like a genius when this idea popped into my head.

We had a brand new box of gallon freezer bags, and I had just freshly washed all of my vibrators and dildos for no other reason than getting all the cat hair off before stuffing them in the toy box. And then I realized that if I stuffed them in the toy box, they’d get all linty, and I’d just have to wash them.

Rats! Foiled again.  Read more…

Change

Took this in Fort Ann, NY.

Took this in Fort Ann, NY.

I’ve been going through some of my old articles on various blogs and publications to get some idea of who I used to be. The way I put that seems overly dramatic, but truth be told, in the past two years, my opinions have changed so much through experience, research, and conversations that I really am a different person today than I was then.

For example, there’s a woman named Lori who writes for SexIs with whom I have a lot in common. She built a bit of an audience with a series on her life as a stripper in the French Quarter, and she’s very open about her religion. Lori is Jewish, and she practices family purity, which requires a woman to immerse herself in a mikvah after her monthly cycle.

Last year, a Christian woman happened upon the idea of ritual impurity, and how it relates to the idea of “dirty menstruation”, and she submitted an article to SexIs about how sexist the practices seemed to her. Minutes after the article was live, my inbox was filled with emails expressing offense, and disappointment. Jewish women, and the people who were friends with them, felt Jewish people were being persecuted for their beliefs on a site that claimed to be based on not just tolerance, but acceptance as well.

And then, I apologized.

CorsetChainWe’ve pretty much jumped back into the whole owner/property thing with both feet, as is usually our way. And as is usually my way, I had to kick the fence the second he closed the gate behind me.

What? You didn’t think I’d changed that much while I was (kind of) away, did you?

The fucked up thing is I wasn’t even mad at him. I was mad at the situation. And I took it out on him because that’s what I do.  Read more…

Updates: Hitting the Ground Running

Love is making funny faces at sunset.

Love is making funny faces at sunset.

My contract with EdenFantasys has been terminated.

I was going to drag the telling out. Do my typical “tell a story, then get to the point” thing. But I decided I don’t wanna. The situation is not deserving of my razmataz. It was relatively uneventful. They’re making cuts, and my name made the list.

It’s definitely for the best. Simply put, my vision for SexIs has never matched Fred’s. And since he owns the mag, his vision is all that matters. So he’ll continue to go his direction, and I won’t be along for the ride. If you’re wondering what direction that is, I’d suggest getting in touch with Fred, Gary, or CarrieAnn. I don’t have a clue.

I rewrote that paragraph a hundred times because I’m not interested in bad mouthing anyone. Though I have plenty to say, I’d prefer to keep it to myself. No reason to publicly air dirty laundry.

Aww, look! Rayne’s all growed up.  Read more…

Product Review: LELO: Noir Luna Kegel Beads

March 2nd, 2013 1 comment

LELO-Luna-Beads-noir-ben-wa-ballsOoo, what’s that?
Oh, that? That’s just the Noir Luna Kegel Beads by LELO. Aren’t they elegant? And they’re functional, too. A kegel tool that looks nice enough to “forget” on your dresser, and actually works. Who could ask for anything more, right?

What’d it come in?
LELO’s stuff comes in pretty black cardboard boxes with nice paperboard boxes on the outside. The outer box, while elegantly designed, does feature images of the toy, so your toy is best kept stored in the black box or the included black satin bag if you’re worried about prying eyes. Since M and me moved, all our LELO stuff is stacked neatly on the shelf in our closet. The boxes make that a cinch.  Read more…
