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

In the weeds, but lookin pretty sharp!

I never managed to find the “perfect” theme for my blog. Sure, I loved most of them at the time I created them, but I grew/the blog changed/squirrel. I’ve never been sure of myself. I change my outfits and I change my mind so quick, your head spins. I can’t even fathom never changing up my look. I think this is my 4th or 5th theme since 2008. I had practical reasons for changing, too. The old theme had a huge flaw: I couldn’t update it automatically. I would have had to download the new theme files and reinstall a new theme….losing all the custom changes I made. And there were a LOT. Plus I’ve been wanting the dual sidebar thing for awhile now. So, what’s new besides the obvious? The blogroll finally got dusted off. And since I don’t read the blog of every person I know & like, that Twitter List serves as

Disclaimers: This post is emo and ranty. Wibbly math and fuzzy logic and a fuck ton of rough estimating is involved. Sure it’s a really rough estimate, but I’m not looking to be precise here just to make my point. If you can’t handle that, don’t read this. The following rant does not apply if your name is SheVibe, Tantus, GoodVibes, Crystal Delights, Standard Innovation, and a few others not noted. Many readers and even blogging newbies are so awed by the fact that sex toy review bloggers often get the items we review for “free”, in exchange for our honest review. A recent tweet by a fellow reviewer talking about their upcoming review on the latest version of the Revel Body got my blood boiling all over again just thinking about that fiasco.  After I found out that the unit I was sent was not the most updated unit, I became angry. Very angry. Due
