I also struggle with social media. My problem is that I don’t stay connected enough, and I don’t know how to market myself and my blog to get more traffic. I don’t consider myself that interesting, and my writing style is very factual. My personality really doesn’t come across in writing. I don’t know how to find my voice.10 September, 2015 at 1:52 am in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #41682
I just posted a review of two Lovehoney Happy Rabbits. I was late to the rabbit vibe trend because I was so overwhelmed by the number of features and choices, but when I finally jumped in, I definitely picked the right rabbit for me.
I have several toys that I’d add to my list now. I’d definitely say that my Tantus Silk Large is one of my favorite toys. I’d also add my Bad Dragon Crackers the Cockatrice as well as my OhMiBod Lovelife Smile because it has become the clit vibe I’ve been using the most lately.
I haven’t been doing much writing OR doing lately. My blog is severely neglected, which I want to remedy ASAP. My fiance is injured right now. He fell down the stairs almost a month back and bruised his tailbone, which was really painful for him. He’s still having knee issues at the moment – most likely from that fall – so even though his bruises have pretty much healed finally, we haven’t had sex in over a month. We’re also having car trouble, which stresses us both out. I’m hoping we can regroup soon and reconnect.13 February, 2015 at 10:56 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #32551
I just posted my Pipedream Anal Fantasy Collection Elite Vibro Balls review.
Don’t rush things. Take it slow. Be prepared beforehand. Make sure you have a good lube. I’d recommend a hybrid lube or a silicone-based lube for anal sex or anal play with toys or fingers. Always use a toy that has a base for safety reasons. A toy without a base could slip too far inside and get lost. The anus isn’t a “closed system” like the vagina. If you’re worried about cleanliness, you can use an enema beforehand. The last piece of advice I have is never to switch from anal to vaginal penetration. Bacteria could cause a UTI. Good luck!
Depends on whether or not he already has sex toys of his own. If he’s totally new to toys, I’d go for something like a pack of Tenga Eggs to start. They’re inexpensive, and if you get a pack of six, he’ll get a variety of different textures that provide different sensations. You could also go for one of the Tenga Cups. Those toys are meant to be disposable, so they’d be more of a temporary toy until you’re able to have sex again. If you’re looking to spend a bit more money on something that will last longer or if he’s not new to toys, I’d highly recommend buying him a Fleshlight if he doesn’t already have one. I bought my fiance one, and I want to get him a few different sleeves for it. He just has the one so far. That’s what’s nice about Fleshlights. You can always buy a new sleeve, so it’s unlikely that he’ll get bored with it. You could also check out Bad Dragon. They make fantasy toys (dragons and tentacles and stuff like that), and their toys are silicone, so they’re body safe and nonporous. If he wanted to, he could boil a Bad Dragon toy to sterilize it. Plus, silicone toys wouldn’t require the maintenance of a Fleshlight. Fleshlights need to be dusted with corn starch to keep the material feeling new. Depends on his experience with sex toys and what your budget looks like.
My guy is like that, too, xxxgxstringxxx. I think he’s shy when it comes to talking about sex and fantasies. I’ve asked him about his sexual fantasies, but he says he doesn’t have any, even after I gave him a couple of mine. I think it makes him feel uncomfortable to talk about them openly. I wonder if he’s afraid of sounding stupid or me rejecting him (even though I never have). We tried watching porn together once, and it was pretty awkward. I’ve tried to be patient with him because I get that I’m a sex blogger and review sex toys, so I don’t expect him to be as comfortable as I am talking about sex, but it’s still frustrating because we’ve been together for almost eight years, and he hasn’t changed much in that time. He’s definitely more vocal during sex now than he was when we first started dating, and every once in a while, I’ll get lucky enough to get some dirty talk out of him in the heat of the moment. When he does open up, I try to be encouraging and give him positive reinforcement. I’ll get louder or tell him later that I thought what he said was hot. I’ve found that it’s a bit easier for him to communicate via text message. I don’t know if it’s just because he doesn’t have to make eye contact that way, but he’s told me that he just doesn’t know what to say when I text him a picture of my breasts or try to be sexy. I try not to be too naughty in texts, but I’ll send him something like, “We should make some time to have sex soon.” That takes some pressure off for him because I’m not saying we have to do it right away tonight, but he knows I’m interested. I’m seriously considering buying the moodsign device, even though I think it’s a little silly. It would be a nonverbal way to communicate about sex that might make it more comfortable and easier for him.4 September, 2014 at 9:27 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #272656 August, 2014 at 11:08 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #26443
I posted my Pipedream Pure Aluminium medium pink vibrator review this week.6 July, 2014 at 7:26 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #24123
I just posted my Kama Sutra Dark Chocolate Raspberry Lover’s Body Paint review today.
I understand what you’re saying. I don’t blog as a full-time job and don’t make money from it yet, so it’s just a hobby that consumes much of my free time. I don’t post reviews as often as I’d like to because I have a regular full-time job and only blog when I’m not working. I try not to let it take up too much of the time I get to spend with my fiance as well because he has both a full-time job and a part-time job and is going to school part-time two nights a week, so we don’t see each other as much as we’d like to. When he is home, I prefer to spend time with him, but I have time when he’s at work or school to blog, and that’s working for now. There’s not a ton of pressure to get reviews done because I don’t really have deadlines except for the ones I set for myself. There are times when I just don’t feel like writing.
You make a great point about the time it takes to write reviews. Your reviews are definitely complete and address the important aspects of whatever you’re reviewing, and I know what you mean about agonizing over them. I’m guilty of doing that when it comes to rating the sex toys I review. I always wonder if I’m giving something too low or too high a rating and second-guess myself a lot before publishing a review. I totally agree with you that the quality of the review and the feedback are important.1 July, 2014 at 12:51 am in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #23937
I have the medium pink Pure Aluminium vibe. I originally got one that didn’t work out of the package, so they’re sending me a new one. I’m going to be reviewing it soon. I’ll post a link here once I do.13 June, 2014 at 10:17 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #22879
I haven’t yet, and I definitely want to. I made a list of items I was interested in with Pipedream, and they’re sending me up to three items at a time. Once I review what they send, they’ll send another few items. I asked for Ceramix No. 1 and Ceramix No. 2 (two of the butt plugs) so far because what I’m really curious about is the temperature play aspect. However, the first package they sent me contained one of their Pure Aluminium vibes and the Elite Vibro Balls. They’re a string of two anal beads with something inside them that makes them jiggle like Kegel beads – but in your butt. They don’t really vibrate exactly. I haven’t reviewed those two items yet, but once I do, I’m hoping that the next package has something from the Ceramix line in it.7 June, 2014 at 7:57 pm in reply to: Post your sex toy & adult product review links here #22523
I just posted my Pipedream Icicles No. 14 review. I love glass sex toys, and I think Pipedream’s Icicles line is probably a pretty good place to start if you’re a beginner when it comes to glass toys. They’re some of the more high-quality toys that Pipedream makes, and they’re not in a price range that’s out of reach.
