Top 100 Sex Bloggers 2015

March 8th, 2016 Comments off

Remember Rori’s Top 100 Sex Bloggers list? Sadly, Rori’s blog (and the list) has gone on hiatus. But never fear! Molly from Molly’s Daily Kiss took up the tradition. And here’s this year’s list! Make sure you check out #21. 😛

New Voice of the Year Award

This award goes to a blog that is new this year and therefore have not been around long enough to qualify for the Top Sex Bloggers list. After much sole searching I have decided that there are two winners of this award this year.

Melina Greenport: I discovered her blog through Wicked Wednesday and have fallen increasingly in love with her sexy, intelligent, beautiful writing. Seriously, if fabulous erotic fiction is your thing then this lady is going to rock your world.

Exposing 40: Exposing 40 has launched herself into the blogging world with style, grace and passion. Her site is a body positive adventure, centred around life in your 40’s. This blog is an unashamed look at, not only her body, but both male and female guests and challenges the traditional ideals of youth = beauty/sex and I am really looking forward to seeing where this project takes her in 2016.

And now with the previews done lets launch ourselves into the main event! Read more…

Guide: What to Include in a Sex Toy Review

October 17th, 2010 9 comments

I’ll be the first to admit my reviews aren’t perfect.  I’m betting this list won’t be perfect either.  And I’m betting there’s one of these floating around the web somewhere.  Probably, better reviewers than I have written one.  But when I Googled it, I got bupkis, and a student of mine asked if I’d make her one.  So… Here it is.  Feel free (read: Please do! I’d love to have some input! That’s not sarcasm.  Neither was that.  Or that.  Seriously.  It’s not.) to comment and let me know if I’ve forgotten anything.

Things I Want to Know When I’m Done Reading Your Review

1 – What’s it supposed to do? – You might have noticed that there are a million and one different kinds of products out there, for people of all gender identities.  And each and every one of them, for the most part, and especially when you delve into the wonderful world beyond the traditional plastic vibe, is just a little bit different.  Either in function, or ability.  Strength, or discreetness.  The possibilities are pretty much endless.  When you’re talking about the use of the toy, I don’t really want to know how it works for you, but rather how it was intended to work in the first place.  What body parts should I use it on? Are there any I shouldn’t use it on? Can I insert it?

2 – Who do you think this toy is best suited for? – If I were a beginner, would I enjoy/be able to use it right out of the box, or is there a learning curve? What about if I’m more experienced, and have dozens of luxury vibes, or Fleshlights? Is it only for bio-females, or can bio-males use it, as well? What about if I have a small penis? Is that stroker gonna be too loose for me to enjoy it? Or if I have a large one, will my penis fit inside? Would couples enjoy using this during foreplay, or intercourse? What about mutual masturbators?  Read more…

Much Ado About Nothing

I’m pretty sure M’s changing my posting schedule.  I’m pretty sure my posting schedule is going to become Mon-Fri, rather than Tues, Thurs and Sat (not that I’ve been especially good at keeping up with that).  Mostly because He doesn’t like my morning being occupied by blogging on Saturday (which is why I rarely get a post up on Saturday).  But also because it’s friggin’ summer, and we should all be outside playing on the weekends, not sitting here tap-tap-tapping away on the internet.

He’s already decided that my work schedule is now Mon-Fri 8-5 just like Him.  That way, when He’s ready to relax, I’m not fretting about something I need to get done for ID or EC or SG or any of the toy companies I review for.  Or, for that matter, ignoring whatever we’re doing because I’m too busy screwing around on the laptop with something I need to get done.

The only problem with that is Mon-Fri 8-5 is also when He wants me to cook and clean and generally take care of Him.  After 5, we find something relaxing to do and… relax.  Read more…

A few random thoughts to get you through your Friday

I just noticed I can never decide whether there should be a space between “pig” and “whore”.  Every time I type it, it’s different.

We have new neighbors.  They’re assholes.  Figures.

Okay, so it takes more than a night to be able to tell if people are assholes.  But they say first impressions are everything, and just take a look at this evidence! Read more…

And besides, generally speaking, a sex toy site isn’t rated G.

It’s weird, after going through the motions of cutting off all ties with someone you can no longer deal with, noticing all the little things you picked up from them.  Especially when you swore you’d never be like them.

Completely unrelated…

I’m finding myself annoyed with some of the restrictions people seem to put on reviews.  Not just their own reviews, but other people’s reviews, as well.

Disclaimer: I can’t really talk about this without it sounding like I’m pointing fingers, so I’m just gonna say it.  The opinions I discuss in this post are opinions held by me and other reviewers, not (to my knowledge) the companies I review for.  Please believe me when I say I mean no offense to anyone.  I just don’t agree with what they’re saying.  Read more…

I’m kind of an asshole. But you knew that.

If you’ve known me a while, you know that I occasionally often take unscheduled breaks from writing.  I’m sure it seems like it’s just me taking a break but, more often than not, it’s me being completely and utterly sick of writing.

That’s not a good place to be.  The one constant in my life has been making up stories.  It started as a way to fall asleep, and, once I knew how to put them to paper, became a passion.

I haven’t written/finished a piece of fiction in… years? And lately, the truth seems like too much work.

I mean, not that my current truth is any more troublesome than it usually is.  It’s pretty much par for the course.

Too many bills and not enough cash.  M works too much and plays too little.  Child support enforcement lost $3000 of his money, are calling the missing dough “arrears”, and are trying to force him to repay it, even though they still owe him money from the last time they did this… two months ago.  My mom waited till my birthday to tell me my grandfather’s got cancer.  My father has a girlfriend.  I threw my back out and have a terrible crick in my neck…  Read more…
