The spotlight turns to a comparatively new sex blog this week, but one I know you’ll all love. Merry Frolics is a great resource for information and tips about male masturbation as well as penis masturbator reviews and other sex toy reviews. It’s a very well presented blog, comfortable to navigate and boasts impressive, professional graphics.
Rauno, the sex blogger behind Merry Frolics, has shared some behind the scenes insights with us this week – so read on to find out more about this lovely sex blogger.
Merry Frolics Sex Blogger Feature
Hi! My names is Rauno and I have blog called Merry Frolics. Thanks for checking out this blogger spotlight.
I write about male masturbation in Merry Frolics. The scope is about general information, guides, and related products and services. The idea behind all the content is that it needs to be somehow related to male self-pleasure and concretely useful for the readers.
I started Merry Frolics late last summer. For a while, I had been getting more and more interested in sex toys (for me and also to play with my wife) and also had this personal interest in learning to write better. I work in software and web business and knew that setting up the website and a blog would be easy for me, so I decided to bite the bullet and give sex blogging a try.
My personal goal wasn’t so much to make this a profession, but to use my existing skills and personal interests to learn something new (= writing).
As my blog will be soon nine months old and I’ve written close to 30 posts, I’ve learned quite a bit. I never knew how much work it is to put together a well-researched informational article. Writing itself has also been a great learning experience. I still have a long way to go but little by little I’ve started taking more pleasure from writing.
How did you come up with a name for the blog?
I don’t have a good story for this. As a perfectionist, deciding on the name was painful. All my initial ideas were already reserved and I ended up with a long list of random ideas. In the end, I just picked one that I thought was a little witty and could be useful later if this sex blogging would fail.
Where do you live?
In the beautiful Vancouver in Canada.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
I mentioned earlier that researching for articles is a lot of work. It is also the part of the work I enjoy most. Learning about a topic and then doing my best to explain it to my readers is a pleasure.
As a new blogger in the niche, I don’t yet know many people. I’ve been in touch with a few other male bloggers and I love talking with them. They are the only ones I can talk to about adult blogging.
What are your social media accounts?
Do your friends know you’re a sex blogger?
No. I write reviews with fairly personal comments and details, so I haven’t felt comfortable sharing those with my friends.
Will you still be blogging in 5 years time?
I think so. Putting articles together seems to be getting easier all the time and I’m definitely not running short of article ideas.
If you’re 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 would like to grow the income I get from the blog, but I don’t think I can put in the effort to make it a full-time profession. I work in an online business, so I’ve also been incorporating what I know on my blog, but with the current traffic, it isn’t making much.
Tell us about some other sex bloggers you admire, and why…
I will mention only one. I think The Big Gay Review is the best male self-pleasure blog out there. He puts in an immense effort to pump out a crazy amount of high-quality posts and product reviews. If I want to learn more about a specific toy, that’s the place I check first.
If you review sex toys, what are the top three toys you wish you could get your hands on next?
I would love to try one of the Bad Dragon male masturbators. I’ve heard a lot of good things about them and would like to see how they fare in comparison to, for example, Fleshlights.
The male frenulum vibrators are also pretty high on my list. I plan to review the Hot Octopus Pulse II.
The third kind of toys I wish to play more with, are prostate massagers. I’ve been using Aneros Helix for a few months now but without much success. Maybe I need to try another model/make. But I’ve also learned that finding that prostate pleasure can often be tricky.
Thank you for your time! You can check my latest article and reviews at Merry Frolics.
