Wood Sex Toys: An Introduction

WOOD SEX TOYS?!? But won’t I get SPLINTERS?!? When I encounter a wood sex toy newbie, the “splinters” bit is bound to come up right away. Either in an attempt at a joke or said in seriousness, I will admit it makes me roll my eyes a bit. Do you get splinters from the wood furniture you sit on? From the wood salad bowl you use? From the wood bedpost ? I’ve yet to run across a wood sex toys crafter on Etsy that didn’t make use of excessive sanding and a finish, because they’re all woodworkers. It wouldn’t make very much sense to just hand over an unfinished wood carving. Right? Why Wood? Made from a sustainable material, well-made and cared-for wooden dildos can last a lifetime. Wood is beautiful, it makes every dildo unique, and often can be made solely from scrap wood. , the first little company I heard about years ago,

Regretsy for Sex Toys: Clay and Wax Dildos

Subtitled: How to make a sex toy activist have a heart attackORStupid Human Tricks: Sex Toy EditionALSODon’t try this at home In research for my post about wood sex toys, I’ve been spending time on Etsy. There are some whackadoodles and many legit crafters on Etsy, and this of course applies to sex toys. Today, Naughty Reenie pointed me to a whackadoodle of the highest order. I’ll link to the shop at the end of the post, but I honestly don’t want to give this guy too much traffic. I’ve screencapped his wares for you, in case he does finally wise up.  You have to see this. It’s sort of like when something smells really bad, you know? We have this bizarre need to share it with someone else: “ewww man this smells funky! Here, smell this.” I shared my horror over this on Twitter but now I shall share this with the world 1.

Lill'Bits - Vol. 1 Issue 1

Lill’Bits – The Dangerous Lilly Quarterly Review1 Reviews So if you’re new here, or have just been busy, let me fill you in on what I’ve been up to for these last three months.  I started off the year reviewing a few items from the new Lovelife line, Cuddle and Smile. I was happy to find that the one thing I hated about the original Je Joue Mimi (the buttons) has been fixed, and I loved the new Je Joue Mimi Soft.  Then I reviewed the Fun Factory Amorino, that weird one with the rubberband.  I didn’t have too many words to say about it, but I felt the need to review the Lelo Mia 2 finally.  I got my paws on one of Tantus’ NEW super-fancy-awesome harnesses, and holy pete it’s gorgeous. The Black Widow harness is superhero-worthy. And finally…..I re-reviewed my Holy Grail of clitoral vibrators, the “new & improved” We-Vibe Tango. I

A Brief History of Sex Blogging

Introduction I’m trying for as much brevity as I can get here which, admittedly, won’t be much. The world of blogs about sex (as a general umbrella term) were varied and niched and I can’t possibly cover everything. In fact, I might very well be unintentionally leaving out crucial stories. That’s where I hope you will fill things in in the comments section. Sex blogging as we know it seems to have gotten off the ground around 2002, 6 years before my start, which was 6 years ago in 2008. My point with this piece is to illustrate to my current niche how WE got to where we are now with sex toy reviews, sexuality conferences and this tumultuous but awesome community.  You’ll see  characterized by the dotted underline; clicking on it (mobile or regular) will provide more info without making this post seem to scroll on forever, so don’t overlook them!

Quickie Review: Lelo Mia 2

Sometimes I never get around to writing up a review; time passes and it’s no longer truly relevant but yet I feel the need to write the review anyway. Especially in the case of Lelo, I’m not going to go in depth since not too much as changed from their original versions. The Lelo Mia 2 was first introduced in 2012.   I first reviewed the Lelo Mia back in 2008. It was one of the first USB-charging sex toys, and to a geek like me that alone made it awesome. So I really wanted to like it. But it just could not get me off. The vibrations were surface-buzzy and not powerful enough. Fast forward 4+ years and Lelo decided to re-do the Mia. It was offered (finally) in black and they boasted a “100% power boost”. They also changed the motor, so that the vibrations are more on the rumbly side. While I
