The “Silicone” Ball Gag -or- Why We Need

May 19th, 2013 5 comments

dildology200donate-150x150It wasn’t long after M and I got together that he took me to our first sex toy store. The first toy we bought together was a jelly vibrator with ribs. I loved it. And I brushed off the burning as something wrong with me instead of something wrong with the toy.

A short while later, we got a jelly butt plug, and we weren’t privy to the whole “use it with a condom” thing, or the fact that jelly tends to melt. I’m not clear on whether this is actual melting, or if the chemicals just break down and turn to mush, or what. But one day, I went to get the plug out of the toy box, and it was missing small chunks. I pulled everything else out, expecting to find a mess reminiscent of a diaper exploding after your kid goes swimming, but the missing pieces were just gone. EdenFantasys still carries it. Most online sex toy stores do, actually.

That was enough to scare me away from insertable jelly. The next plug we purchased was the Tantus Zing. We’ve owned nothing but silicone, glass and stainless steel anal toys since.  Read more…

Fundraiser – Toys for Tots

I dunno if you guys know AshlyStar.  She blogs over at Not Your Average Chick.  She’s super cool, and super fun, and super nice… and she LOVES hockey, the weirdo.  She lives in Texas! There’s no ice in Texas! It’s just square (As in the shape, not “You’re such a square, Dad!”, though I’m still confused about why we decided a square is more boring than, say, a triangle, or a rectangle.  They all have straight sides, and corners.  And a triangle only has three sides! Surely, that makes it more boring than a square!) towns, with straight roads, and a buncha cowboys (if only at heart) screaming about football.  All the ice in Texas is man made!

Last year, she did a fundraiser for Toys for Tots, which is run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, and unfortunately, by the time I noticed, it was a day or two before Toys for Tots stopped accepting donations for the year, and we were broke as usual.

I’d heard of Toys for Tots before, and I’ve donated to them before.  My mother and I donated toys, food and money to so many organizations that center around the holidays and underprivileged families when I was growing up that I can’t even remember all of them.  Unfortunately, since I moved out, I’ve been pretty poor, so the most I’ve been able to do is let people know about organizations they can donate to.  Read more…
