It’s Come Heather in the Sex Blogger Spotlight this week and you can enjoy reading all about this lovely sex toy blogger in her revealing feature below. By the way, if anyone is sending out Liberator sex furniture and the njoy Eleven dildo, add me to that list? I reckon you’ve got great taste in sex toys, Heather. 🙂
Thanks for being in this week’s sex blogger spotlight.
What’s your blog name/online handle and how did you come up with the idea?
My blog is named Come Heather (and can be found at comeheather.com). It’s a play on “Come Hither,” plus the term “come” implying orgasm, and my blogging pseudonym Heather. As much as a perfectionist as I am, I didn’t give the name a whole lot of thought. It sort of popped in my head and I ran with it.
Another idea I had was “Helen of Toy,” but the domain name was 10,000 USD, and the name Helen wasn’t very popular the year I was born. I love naming things, so if you need something named, I also provide that service!
Come Heather is a sex toy review blog that showcases quality, attractive, functional, body-safe sex toys, and occasional discussion of general sexuality and women’s health.
I’ve been a BDSM practitioner since 2012, but ultimately my blog isn’t focused on BDSM. That experience has definitely informed my perspective, but I wanted the blog to focus on information about quality sex toys for the average person. Despite being a really precocious pervert, it took me until I was 18 years old to have an orgasm through masturbation, and it happened – surprise! – using a vibrator. Prior to that, I thought something was wrong with me, I felt broken as a person, while everyone else was (in my mind) enjoying ecstatic, orgasmic rapture. I look back on the frustration I experienced and write in hopes of facilitating breakthroughs for other people in similar circumstances.
My partner also occasionally posts guest reviews of toys that are compatible with his anatomy.
Approximately how long have you been sex blogging?
I have been blogging since July of this year! I am really giddy about it. I’ve only been on the scene for a very short time, but the reception has been far better than I ever hoped.
Which country do you live in?
I live in Portland, Oregon, in the United States.
Do you use social media? If so, where can we find you?
You can find me on Twitter, and I’m on Pinterest too.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
Umm…drowning in sex toys? Feedback from my readers. Connecting with really cool, conscientious companies. Making sex puns on Twitter. Bonding with a wonderful community of other sex bloggers.
If you review sex toys, what are the top three toys you wish you could get your hands on next?
Share with us a funny or interesting experience that’s happened to you in the course of your blogging.
I asked a company if I could review a lube, and I decided to test it out before taking photos of the tube…well, I dropped the tube in a cup of coffee and it stained the label. Luckily they were really cool about it. Now I take photos immediately upon opening the item.
