I use the name BlissfullyOrgasmic online; well that’s the name of my blog, twitter and Facebook page. On different forums I use FrozenAngel as an alias.
I’m female born and raised in the UK, I’m 20(cough cough cough something) years old, and I’m a lone parent.
I’m in a long distance relationship and have been for several years, my partner lives in Canada and because of the distance we don’t get to see each other quite as much as I’d like to. Long distance is really hard, going months (Sometimes years *Gasp*) without touching each other, feeling his breath on my neck as I wake up; it’s difficult, especially for me as I have an extremely high sex drive. To help with the distance I have become somewhat of a sex toy addict. I mean just because he isn’t here to pleasure me doesn’t mean I can’t pleasure myself right?!
I’ve amassed quite a collection of sex toys over the years, and have tested and wrote reviews for companies on products they’ve sent out. I wanted to start a blog for a while, but haven’t really had the time between working; looking after my son who has special needs and making time to speak to the OH on our different time schedules it hasn’t been easy.
Recently though due to problems with my son I’ve had to leave work which has freed me up somewhat to blog about things I love; Sex toys. So that’s what I do, I write about the toys I have and the toys I’ve received; how they look and feel and how especially how they make me feel.
What’s your blog name/online handle and how did you come up with the idea?
My blog name is BlissfullyOrgasmic, honestly I don’t know how I came up with it. I sit there for hours trying to decide on names to use on forums or creating characters in MMO’s. I am tragically terrible at it, so I just used Blissfully as I love to be taking to a Blissful tranquil state and Orgasmic, who doesn’t love to orgasms. And that is how BlissfullyOrgasmic came to existence.
Which country do you live in?
I live in England.
Approximately how long have you been sex blogging?
At the time of writing this, I’ve only been blogging for a couple of months. I’m still in the process of writing reviews and taking pictures of all the toys I own and getting them online.
Why did you start a sex blog or reviewing sex toys?
As I said earlier, Long distance has been tough; to get through it I started using different sex toys. Also being a lone parent of a 6yr old with special needs, he doesn’t like to leave the house and can’t really handle change very well. So I’ve become somewhat of a recluse I don’t much get out unless he’s at his fathers and I have little else to do. I started going on some forums attached to some toy sites, I really have no idea how I ended up there. I met some fantastic people and they kept me occupied. I then seen the section on that particular forum for sex toy testers and though ‘hm well this could be fun’ and gave it a try.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
I love talking about the different toys, and different sensations. I believe sex toys can really open up people to what they like sexually and can really help in the bedroom to spice things up. So it makes me happy when I get a message telling me that someone has purchased an item based on my review and it has helped them develop as a couple. I’m a bit of a sap aren’t I?!
Do your friends know you’re a sex blogger?
Haha yes, yes they do.
Have you ever done anything specifically so you can blog about it afterwards?
Not really, although one day in the future that might happen. But generally I just blog about the toys I already own or have recently received.
Do you take part in any blog memes? If so, which ones?
No I don’t.
Share with us a funny or interesting experience that’s happened to you in the course of your blogging.
Since I haven’t currently been blogging for that long I don’t really have very many.
There was however one time that a family member got himself into a little bit of bother with the police which led to a search of my house as he’d recently been to visit. The look on the officers faces as they pulled items from several chests where I store my items.
I mean most people have sex toys now, so it’s not really anything to be embarrassed about, but as a sex blogger you all know, we have more than the average amount of sex toys. His face at first started in amusement. Where you know he’s thinking ‘oh look I found a dildo’ he then found another and another. Storage bags filled with glass dildos, at that time I had over 20 glass dildos, and he had to pull each one out of its protective bag, and then the vibrators, the chest with the bondage gear, floggers, whips, and cuffs. I really don’t know if he knew what expression he thought he should be expressing on his face at that point. The poor guy had over 5 chests to go through.
After that I really don’t know what the local police station think I am. Maybe I’ve been branded as a sex pest?! Who knows? My friends however think it was hilarious and still make comments about it. More and more I wish at that point I’d have asked if I could lend his police issued handcuffs to compare to the ones on sale.
Will you still be blogging in 5 years time?
I really hope so, it is something I really enjoy doing.
If not already a professional blog: would you say you’re looking to earn a living from blogging eventually, or will it remain a hobby?
I’m not a professional blogger my any means, It’d be nice to earn a living from something you love doing but currently it’s only a hobby and will more than likely remain that way.
