By Cara Sutra: I doubt there’s any business out there that has never experienced unhappy customers at one point or another. As genuine and admirable as your company values may be, unhappy customers are part and parcel of being in business.
With so much sex advice focussing on couples foreplay, how to spice up a monogamous sex life and how to keep a relationship happy, it’s easy to overlook the fact that there are plenty of sassy singles out there who want and deserve a satisfying sex life too. Contrary to popular opinion, many singles are not spending all their waking hours masturbating sadly and alone in their bedrooms while pining for the comforts that only a relationship with another person can provide.
It’s always the right time to book a fun-packed holiday and enjoy counting down the days until your next adventure. For adults looking to expand their horizons, experience new sensations and enjoy previously undiscovered levels of pleasure while enjoying the company of like-minded holiday guests, Temptation Holidays is the perfect choice.
Always disclose that you received the product free of charge from the company in exchange for a fair, honest and unbiased review. Make sure that your thoughts and feelings are expressed in terms of your own opinion and based on your own experience. For instance instead of stating that product x is ‘unsuitable for all women as it’s entirely rubbish’, you may instead choose to write that product x ‘didn’t work for me and I can think of many ways in which it could be improved to suit me personally’.
I’m as guilty here as the next person. When it comes to sex with your partner, or even solo fun, it’s so easy to find yourself in a rut. Bedtime, the lights are out, a brief cuddle, you slip under the duvet to attend to them or they snuggle up behind you – and oops, I’ve slipped inside. Or, if you’re single, you head off to bed and whack out that predictable O with your old faithful from the bedside drawer before letting it fall to the floor and drifting off to sleep.
It will soon be Valentine's Day, and you know what that means: bondage. Wait, what? Ok, maybe bondage and Valentine's Day aren't synonymous for everyone. However, with the release of a Fifty Shades of Grey film -and related sex toys- around Valentine's Day for the past couple of years, the two are becoming irrefutably and inexorably entwined.
It was just an hour from when I got her message to when I arrived. Just an hour. Now, looking back, it seems almost impossible that there was just an hour of intermission between my old life to my new reality.
Every year, it seems that no sooner have we packed away the Christmas baubles and swept away the New Year’s streamers, it’s time for Valentine’s Day. Cue a surge of panic. What should you get your lover? Where should you even start looking?
At some point in your sex blogging journey you might be asked about your Alexa Rank or Google PageRank. What are they? Do they matter? Should sex bloggers care how their website measures up with these website rank trackers?
The enduring popularity of BDSM cannot be attributed in its entirety to the relatively recent appearance of Fifty Shades Of Grey, no matter how much the media would love for that to be the case. Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism are all power exchange activities, either including sex or entirely and deliberately absent of it, which have been practiced for centuries.
Then again, the two of you may not be a good fit anymore. Unfortunately, this is a reality that affects a lot of couples and it is one that is highly emotional and confusing. The good news is that this is something that couples have come back from, leading to even stronger relationships.
Once you have established which people are the leaders in the sex toy reviews and sex toy shopping fields, you may wish to send a couple of polite (not demanding) emails asking for any help and advice that the person or company can spare time for. Example questions you may ask another reviewer are, “Which companies do you recommend approaching for a newbie toy reviewer?” and “What are your top tips for writing great sex toy reviews?” Questions you may like to approach sex toy companies with, to their customer care email or similar, are “Do you have any community schemes in place for sex toy reviewers?” and “Are there any products you are seeking honest, well written reviews for at the moment?” Avoid begging for free sex toys or making demands for high priced products; this screams ‘greedy’ and ‘newbie’ and may well dissuade the company from working with you right from the start.
Some of us enjoy long-term committed relationships, whilst others prefer the more casual approach to dating, opting instead to have one or more partners which we enjoy having a bit of fun with. The great thing is that society is becoming more accepting of alternative sexual practices, so there is no shame in deciding to enjoy the casual and fun aspect of dating if you don’t feel ready to commit to anything serious.
By Cara Sutra: Today I want to talk about safe sex. Challenge how we translate the term ‘safe sex’. I know that I have a tendency to link safe sex and condoms together inextricably, probably due to sex writing work. This often takes the form of condoms reviews, safe sex articles and other sex education articles here at the blog.
As there seems to be some mystery surrounding how to publish something from someone’s (my) blog without them (me) being annoyed about it and shouting 'content theft!', I thought I'd write about how anyone can put my content on their site and be assured I will have a smiley face, not that frowny-faced ‘take it down immediately or imma DMCA your ass’ look quite a few companies have left me with lately.
How do I know? Because I’ve tried it. I’ve tried to give away my Domination as a free for all - to see it as a fun activity. To welcome all, with the open arms of the naive n00b and simply try to enjoy dominating those around who state that they’re submissive or want to be trained. What did I get? Hurt. Hurt, used, lied to, ditched and almost broken as a Mistress and as a Domme. Not quite, but nearly. I have been used as a service Top without my consent many times. Now, if I feel like someone comes to me and requests Domination, that they need a downpayment of some kind. If that downpayment is simply getting me to start their training with a great big grin on my face, then that will do for me. Not a, 'oh for fuck’s sake not another demanding little shit'. Not a, 'oh why yes of course I’ll meet you and see to all your fantasies and then even fuck you because I’m just an unpaid sex worker'.
