Candy Snatch – Sex Blog

I’ve been reviewing adult products online for a little while, initially anonymous to begin with. My confidence grew with each review and then I came across The Pleasure Panel on Cara Sutra and joined up. Meeting like minded people and swapping stories and reviews was a great way to learn about the community and then recently I decided to start my own blog as well. This in itself was a challenge as I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve found it very exciting and I’m lucky I’ve got lots of supportive and helpful friends to assist me with technical support.

I did a lot of writing in school and have found I’ve rediscovered my love of this whilst working on my blog. The blog itself is basically a mix of reviews and articles exploring different areas of sexuality, often semi autobiographical. I’ve found writing some of the content surprisingly cathartic, which I didn’t expect.

I’ve been really surprised at how well received my blog has been on my Twitter account where most people are just learning about my hobby. Even though I’ve been a prolific tweeter for years I kept my reviewing separate from my social networking until recently.

Sex Blogger Q&A

Candy Snatch sex blogger spotlight seriesWhat’s your blog name/online handle and how did you come up with the idea?

My blog is called Candy Snatch. This has been my twitter AKA for years and was a nickname given to me by an old friend due to the confectionery tattoos covering me. It seemed appropriate to adopt it for my blog too.

Which country do you live in?

I’m from Kent in the UK.

Approximately how long have you been sex blogging?

I’m very new to blogging and have only been running mine for a few weeks. However, I’ve been writing reviews for about a year.

Why did you start a sex blog or reviewing sex toys?

I mainly got into reviewing because I won’t buy anything myself without reading the reviews. I buy a lot of sex toys and lingerie and before I part with my money I want to know the product is going to be what I expect. It seemed logical to add my own opinions to products I bought to help other people come to the same decision.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite bit of blogging is sharing products I’m excited about with my followers. I also really enjoy the process of thinking through the topic and sometimes coming to realisations during the writing of the article. It can provoke some interesting discussions with friends and followers.

Do you use social media? If so, where can we find you?

I’m on Twitter and can be found at @E4tMeDr1nkMe.

Do your friends know you’re a sex blogger?

Most of my friends and family know I review and blog. My other half has been tremendously supportive even trying out products for me. I’m very lucky.

Share with us a funny or interesting experience that’s happened to you in the course of your blogging.

Probably the most amusing thing that’s happened to me during my blogging time has been taking photographs of a glass dildo and dropping it on my phone totally devastating the screen protector on my phone. Dildo 1 – Samsung Galaxy 0.

Will you still be blogging in 5 years’ time?

I would absolutely love to still be blogging in 5 years. My love for this just grows and grows and there’s still so much to learn and so many fantastic people that I’m getting to know. It’s just an amazing experience.

Tell us about three other bloggers you admire, and why.

Carnal Queen

I love her blog and her reviews are always really informative and fun. If I’m looking for a new product her blog is one of the first places I search to see her thoughts before buying. She’s brilliant.

Scanderella

Scanderella was one of the first bloggers I came across when I got involved in the sex blog community. I’ve bought a few products based on her reviews and really enjoy her twitter account as well.

Cara Sutra

I don’t want to sound a suck up but Cara has been a real inspiration to me in this journey. Her blog is one of my favourite places on the net and The Pleasure Panel was instrumental in boosting my confidence to move into blogging. She’s always really helpful with advice and super friendly and approachable. Cara’s reviews have inspired me to try lots of different toys I may not have previously.

If you review sex toys, what are the top three toys you wish you could get your hands on next?

My three top sex toys I’d love to get my hands on next are as follows:

we-vibe-4-plus-12

The We-Vibe 4 Plus is the next toy on my wish list. I love the couples element to this and really want to give the remote aspect a try.

Tantus Cush Twilight Dildo-17

I seriously want to try a Tantus Dildo and the Curve is the one that appeals to me most due to that delicious curved angle.

Mia-Maxx-Your-Hand-Held-Fucking-Machine-slide-760

And thirdly the Mia Maxx sex toy as I’m curious as to how these “personal fucking machine” type toys feel and have read some interesting reviews relating to the Mia Maxx.

Who is your favourite adult shopping company, and why?

I actually have three favourite adult online retailers, those are Lovehoney, Simply Pleasure and Bondara. I find all of these have really good customer service, quick, discreet delivery and excellent value for money. I spend far too long browsing on all three.

Do you prefer blogging fictional erotica, real life sex anecdotes or factual based content such as reviews and advice guides?

Although my blog contains mainly reviews and anecdotal articles I’ve had lots of feedback from my twitter followers suggesting I should get into erotic fiction writing. This isn’t something I’ve tried yet but may do later as I gain confidence in my writing skills.
