(and a mish-mash of other things)

Right now sextoy.com has a lot of kits. These kits allow you to get a major toy of a brand name you’ll recognize (others include Rock Chick, Fleshlight, etc) and a few other “extra” toys that are of the cheaper variety (and you cannot tell the brand of the extra items, for the most part). I had requested the Berman Center Selene Vibrating Clitoral Pump Sex Toy Kit (boy that’s a mouthful!) mainly because I was very interested in trying a clitoral pump and also it included a Mini-Mite massager – which I figured might be the same brand as my old beloved red pocket rocket – and a Silver Bullet which appeared to be very similar to my original much-loved-may-it-rest-in-peace Bullet.

The LELO Bo Cock Ring

Synopsis: Very well made; awesome addition to oral sex; it’s pricey but it’s an investment because this thing will LAST plus it carries Lelo’s standard warranty. It comes with its own little case and a charger. It can be a couple’s toy or a solo toy and is a benefit to both men and women.

I have to be honest, I’ve always hated cock rings, particularly the vibrating kind. The reason is that, until now, they’ve primarily been available in one main material: jelly. While jelly in a cock ring isn’t a huge concern with phthlates, my complaint with that material has been the way it behaves. It’s usually a flimsy material – easily tangled up within itself, collects dust like you wouldn’t believe, can be hard to clean off fluids especially once they’ve dried on and removing the bullet vibe from the ring is a pain in the ass if you’re changing the batteries or cleaning the ring. Another bad thing is that jelly isn’t really the strongest material, it can tear. We had one once and it didn’t really last long. Of course, it didn’t get used much either. This all is why, until now, I’ve never requested a cock ring to review. VibeReview was kind enough to send me one to try out!

Lelo’s stab at a cock ring, the Bo, takes all those former complaints and negates them. Continue reading »

It’s been months since I last bothered with Craigslist but when I did I had a lovely run-in with the sort of guy who, once spurned, turns his forked tongue from compliments to insults. Also given his Wal-mart Employee status and general unintelligence, it proved to be ultimately more funny than hurtful. In fact, I wasn’t bothered negatively by it at all. I find this sort of behavior really funny because I don’t think these men realize just how bad it makes them look.

And while it is entirely too easy to make fun of these sorts, like shooting fish in a barrel, it’s still amusing as hell.

I’ll admit to you that this comes from my profile on OkCupid. I originally (couple years ago) started up on this site to meet women. I’ve actually ended up meeting men, mostly. Some have worked out to varying degrees and still others were abject failures. I  used to like the site. It’s one of the few that are free, there’s a lot of people of many ages and tastes on there ranging from those looking for hook-ups to those looking for the next Mr/Ms Right. In the last year though I’ve gotten fed up with both the site and the offerings of men and women in my area (meaning, I think, that I need to fucking move). So I changed my status from “Available” to “Seeing Someone” (meaning, I’m not looking for anything other than friendship). My profile is, perhaps unlike others, very honest and open and wordy. I migrated from highlighting the sexy to highlighting my base personality including my quirks, my ADD and my sense of humor. When I changed my status though I removed all sexy/risque photos and left up only one of me from waist to face.When I first started my blog, I included the link to it. When I first did toy reviews, I also posted them to the “blog” on the site. But when I quickly realized that I wouldn’t want anybody who works for…um…..the place I work…. to find my profile and then my blog, I removed the link. I still mentioned it because it’s part of my base sexuality and I will give out the link, but I said that people have to ask for a link. I have ignored messages of local guys asking for it, or just creepy men. And again, I don’t have the time or energy or give-a-shitness to respond “no thanks” to every guy who messages me whom I don’t have any interest in.

So this guy. He’s in my area. He’s a little older than I would normally go for, he’s 40 but doesn’t look it – he is likely moderately attractive but doesn’t photograph all that well. While not repulsive, he’s just not my type either physically or what he’s looking for according to his profile. He’s looking for his Ms Right. He’s got a 14 year old daughter and he even had her write this (really cute) paragraph on his profile. If I were a single woman looking for a family type guy, that profile would attract my attention.

And then he messages me after I logged in after a 2-month hiatus. I log back in 2 days later and see a few emails. I read them, I clicked over to his profile, but wasn’t interested. I’ll let you read this all, start to finish. I changed only a part of his username. I’m not real keen on keeping his identity well concealed actually, but I’m not bitch enough to outright post the exact correct username.

And of course, all typos and such are left to original status.

thought you had a really off the wall profile which is cool by me. i like different. if you want to send me a link to your blog, i would appreciate it. if not, thats fine also.

I believe it was the next morning, Saturday, around 8 or 9am, that I logged in, read it, glanced at his profile, and logged out.


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/09/2009 – 11:03am

i am definitely interested in your link. would love to see some pics and would send you some of me also.

Why do they all assume that I’m interested in collecting cock-shots? I’m not, not unsolicited ones and certainly not men I’m not already flirting with. Women, on the other hand, are encouraged to send unsolicited pics ;)

can i ask why you don’t reply. you put that on your page and i thought you wanted people to check out your link. you are a very attractive woman and think pretty cool by reading your profile. i understand that you are seeing someone, but would still like to check out your link. what do i have to do? could you please reply. thanks.

Second email after I ignored him. At least this time he waited. Note as well that other than logging in that morning, I hadn’t logged back in.


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/09/2009 – 6:46pm

i take it by your no response that your link is not a really that great to check out, or there isn’t one at all.

Oh and now the Dr Jekyl side peeks out. Or is it his bad attempt at reverse psychology?

i am still waiting. i am very persistant. i will not stop until you reply.

Wow. That much is obvious. I still haven’t yet logged in, btw…


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/12/2009 – 10:54pm

still waiting for the link to your blog. you put that in your profile, for what reason, if you are not going to be honest about it. you are very beautiful, and i would love to see you.

We’re back to the complimenting tactic, along with….I don’t know what. I’m not sure what that second sentence is trying to say.


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/12/2009 – 11:03pm

would you at least talk to me.

Would you at least give up?!?! Geesh

05/15/2009 – 11:05pm

Ok, whoa. I havent even logged in in days!
But seeing the deluge of emails from you, some of them not nice /borderline creepy/insulting….no. I won’t give out the link to my site.

And I don’t have the link in my profile because I couldn’t risk people that work where I do somehow being on this site and finding my blog.

Look ….I had to be honest, and hoped that by finally acknowledging him he’d back off.

I think I logged out right after sending this.


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/15/2009 – 11:13pm

thats cool. sorry, i thought you were on cuz it said that you were online. i was just a little frustrated cuz you put that on there and then i thought you were blowing me off by not replying. that was my mistake. but honestly speaking i do think you are a very attractive woman, but i dont understand your decision. thanks for replying though. again sorry.

brad

So he’s apologizing. Again, complimenting. Does he think I’ll change my mind? Does he think that that will erase the creepy-kinda-mean messages? Apparently so.


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/15/2009 – 11:32pm

would you talk through im with me sometime?

Days later, I log back in, frustrated to see he’s not given up. He’s also viewed my profile every. fucking. day.


From: Lilly
05/21/2009 – 12:29pm

As you can see, I’m rarely on here, so no.
And what about my decision do you not understand?


From: Bradsgreeneyes
05/21/2009 – 5:11pm

thats cool. who actually wants to see some naked fat chick anyways. a carpet muncher at that. bet ya your man/woman is a looker.

Ohhhhhh so NOW I’m a fat chick, eh? And I bet if he read any of my posts on here about other women he wouldn’t be so disparaging with the lesbian slurs. I didn’t let my full bitch out when replying to the douchebags on that other site, but tonight….I was in a bad mood already, I hadn’t had a good day at work and had had a….disappointing turn of conversation with someone. Instead of getting angry though, I got even.While I hadn’t, obviously, yet posted his messages to me here, I wanted him to think I already had. The threat of “I will” didn’t seem as enjoyable. And again half of his message doesn’t make sense.

Thanks for playin along, Brad! It’s always a treat when I get the occasional message from the psychonuts who play up the compliments and begging but then when I bruise their ego they overcompensate for their tiny penis by turning nutter and maliciously threatening and/or insulting me. Honestly, it’s proven to be a huge matter of entertainment with my friends, my twitter buds, and my blog readers! I posted your messages to me up on my blog and it was so greatly enjoyed. You see, it’s really transparent when the local guys, such as yourself, start off with right away asking for the link to my blog. And guess what? It’s such an obvious pattern, you’re all the same. Predictable and staid. The guys who would NOT commit date rape are the ones I’ll gladly pass along the link to.
Do not. Ever. Contact me again. Buhbye now!


It was at that point that I remembered that Okcupid has a “block” feature which didn’t work with the last dickhead who repeatedly threatened me, like actual “you should go kill yourself”  “i hope you get raped” sort of messages that, ironically, the Okcupid admin wouldn’t do anything about and the block feature wasn’t keeping that guy from messaging me. So, I blocked his ass.

He continued to view my profile. But he was, essentially, gagged and bound.

*waves*

If you were intelligent enough to find this, Brad, (I highly fucking doubt it) then hi!!!!!!

You’ll all know I rarely (almost never) do TMI Tuesday, but this week’s questions made me think about things when I read them on another blog this morning, and I decided to play along.

Since today is also my birthday (I’ll take gifts of cash via Paypal, thanks) (I’m kidding, duh!!) I refused to go to work and I have the time to do this :)

TMI Tuesday #187 (HNT Anniversary Editon)

It was 4 years ago today that Half-Nekkid Thursday (HNT) became an official thing. Happy Birthday and thanks for the memories.

1. Have you ever participated in HNT? If so, when? If not, why not?

Of course I have! In fact it was something I did in my first week. Granted, the pics were terrible, but oh well.

2. Have you ever avoided certain sites because of the HNT pictures that were posted?

Actually……yes.

3. Have you ever posted a HNT picture that you wish that you hadn’t?

Yep, and I actually ended up removing it from my site a few months later.

4. Do you email/text/call anyone regularly with someone you met through HNT?

I had to think about it, but yes! I am quite positive that I came to Coy Pink‘s blog through HNT and we chat online every other day. BadBadGirl I can’t quite recall if I first came to her site through HNT but I wanna say I did. We actually met, in NYC, and her and I talk online a few times a week. There are a few others that I talk to regularly via Twitter, if that counts?

5. What percentage of your online friends are current or former HNTers?

I’m gonna say…..60% no, 50%. Yeah.

6. Does anyone in your “real” life know that you do HNT (if, of course, you do)?

Fuck no

7. Other than previously-known friends, have you met any fellow HNTers?

As I mentioned before, I’ve met BadBadGirl. Tryin to recall who at the NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar party have ever done HNT….Diva does it, occasionally, but I don’t think she started until after that party.

8. Have you ever downloaded someone else’s HNT pictures?

Yes, yes I have. The only one I’ll admit to is Coy Pink *smiles*.

BONUS QUESTION: Have you ever submitted a picture for “…the Other HNT”?

Nope. There’s two reasons, but the one I’ll tell you is that I always felt that OHNT was for people who wanted to anonymously post a more risque picture than they could get away with on their blog, or if they couldn’t post any photos, at all on their blog. Since I don’t draw the line too much for HNT, there’s little point to me posting at OHNT.


Bonus Picture Time!

Because it’s the HNT Anniversary edition,this is a very early HNT photo that didn’t make the cut before. Apropo, me “in my birthday suit”.

There are many good occasions in your sex life for adding what is generally called “sex furniture”, or rather, pillows. The different shapes of sex pillows can greatly enhance or change up even the most basic of fucking positions.

But when the most ideal shape, a large wedge, is a bit cumbersome and obvious….the natural thought is how to make it travel-friendly.

Make it inflatable!

In theory, it’s a great idea. I really wanted to like this. But, it should have occurred to me that I don’t like air mattresses. I can never find the right level of fullness. Either my ass hits the ground, or I feel like I’m going to roll off if I’m within 6 inches of the edge. Even the much-lauded “Sleep Number” bed is a glorified air mattresses, and I hated it, too. The same thing occurred with this inflatable wedge. In fact the feeling of “I’m going to roll off this fucking thing” was more than just a feeling – I did. Maybe it’s just me and because I’m no skinny 10o pound waif but I never felt secure on this thing. The shape is great, the size is great. But I hate air mattresses.

The other thing that I hated about this product is the included foot pump.

To call this thing a foot pump is like trying to claim that the Bob the Builder hammer my 4 yr old nephew has is a working hammer.

For as much as this Wedge (made by Doc Johnson) costs, you would think that the manufacturer could have spent literally a few more dollars on the damn pump. Not only are the primary colors reminiscent of Lego, but it’s slow and noisy. There is a hose and connector that comes with the pump, too, and they are the same awful colors and cheap plastic design. The hose looks like a child’s toy you’d get at a carnival if you came in third place. A small carnival.

Really, I felt like I was in a bad Clown Porno.

It took me so long to review this product because I just couldn’t deal with the damn pump; I replaced it with a $15 very nice foot pump from Target. It’s kind of a mood-killer. But we did have fun giggling at the squeaks.

It still took a few minutes to inflate it, so I know I’d never want to try to inflate this thing by mouth. It is very sizable though! I was actually surprised how big it ends up being. Below is a photo of it inflated, and then one of it deflated and my crapass attempt to neatly roll it. (Can you tell I suck at putting away things like sleeping bags and air mattresses?)

062 076

Inflated, it takes up about 3/4 of a twin bed.

The construction of this is a cover that zippers over the inflatable portion. This cover is supposedly washable but we didn’t try that yet. It’s basically the same material as your average air mattress, with velvet flocking on the outside and the rest is…..I dunno. But it’s very waterproof. And sturdy. Due to the pain-in-the-assness of inflating this, we simply did our best to stash it in a closet or a corner without deflating it.

This isn’t something I would use at home now that I know I’m getting a proper Liberator brand wedge.  The cost and travel-ability aspects were my reasons for wanting to try this, and to me neither make it a worthwhile buy. Is this perhaps because I am larger? I don’t know. It is entirely possible that a thinner gal wouldn’t have the feeling of floating precariously as I did.

Who would like this? Well since the cover is washable AND waterproof (meaning if you gush or there’s just a lot of liquids around) it won’t get saturated quickly and can last the night longer in that respect. If you’re traveling away somewhere, particularly with plane travel involved, this is more easily transportable for most people than a large foam triangle. This is pretty much a “I know we’re having sex tonight and lots of it!” item. It isn’t something you decide to use spur-of-the-moment.

Thanks to Pinkcherry.com for letting me review this!
