Last night

My fiance and I had vanilla sex for once. I asked for the light to be turned off (again, for once), and he turned it off. Our room became totally dark.

He then said, "I can't see anything. This is somewhat difficult."

I replied, "is it that bad? I like it, we can just concentrate on how we feel."

He didn't say anything to that, but he seemed to agree with me. After a bit, he said, "one of these people has been replaced with Folger's Crystals. Can you tell which?"

This is why I'm keeping him.

Please Find or Make Me This Porn

I've changed sites. Click here to read this post on elodieonlove.com.

I need a porn, consisting of one woman and one man (so I can pretend to be the woman) in which:

1) The people are really and truly enjoying themselves.
2) The woman receives at least as much oral sex as the man. I love dicks, but I'm sick of them being the sexual focus of everything
2a) No choking on dicks. I keep thinking the woman is going to puke -- not something I find sexy. At all.
3) No anal, and definitely no rimming, it grosses me out. Nothing wrong with it, but it's not my thing.
4) No fisting, it scares the bejeezus out of me. Again, nothing wrong with it, but it's not my thing.
5) The man's penis isn't the size of an oboe. If I want to fantasize about being the woman in the scene, I do NOT want to be distracted by imagining an 8-inch dick going into me. Massive, massive turn-off.
6) I'd like to be able to hear what they're actually saying, and I'd like it not to be "fuck" every second word.

Multi-Position Beaded Silk Rope Review for Vibrator.com

I have moved sites. Click here to read this review at my new site, elodieonlove.com.

K and I are trying to build our bondage collection, so I was quite happy when Vibrator.com
offered me the chance to review the Fetish Fantasy Series Multi Position Beaded Silk Rope. The packaging has pictures of a scantily clad woman making faux "sexy" faces, but I wasn't going to let that bias me against the product. I wouldn't even hold the stupid "tie the knot!" marriage pun on the packaging against it, though they may as well have called it a "marital aid", a term I despise. No, I would -- and did -- judge the rope on its own merits, which renders a verdict of: it depends.

This rope consists of two pieces attached at the ends, and covered with silver paper. It's about 38 inches long. Large beads are strung along the rope, which you can use to create and adjust multiple loops. This opens up some interesting bondage and positioning possibilities, four of which are demonstrated on the package. No instructions come with the rope, so we used the package's photographs as a guide.

Are you planning to use this rope the way it's used on the model on the front and back of the package? Many people, including me, find that position highly pleasurable for penetrative vaginal sex, and it leaves you vulnerable for other play. Okay, first: make sure you're the right size. Skinny would be good. Short would help. Flexible would be great. I'm a 5'8, not very flexible size 12, and getting into the rope in that position took some serious work. Once I was positioned, I started to feel discomfort, first behind my neck, then behind my knees as the ropes slid down my thighs. I told K and he slid the ropes up my thighs and tightened them as much as possible using the beads, but after a few minutes, the ropes were cutting into the backs of my knees again. My neck felt even worse; I'm not a serious enough masochist to enjoy a rope digging into the back of my neck. I highly recommend wearing a collar while using this rope in position #1. We won't be using it again for that position, even with a collar, since it's just too uncomfortable for me.

Next, we tried the second position on the front of the box, which I will call position #2: a basic hog-tie. This worked substantially better than position #1. It was easy to get into, the rope felt fine on my ankles and wrists, and while I could move enough to make myself relatively comfortable, I couldn't roll over or escape. However, when we tried to tie K in this position, it proved impossible. He's only a little taller than me, but he's not as flexible, and the rope was too short to reach his limbs. But as a quick easy-in easy-release hogtie for me, the rope works quite well.

Then we tried position #3, in which the model's wrists are bound between her thighs. I don't understand the point of this position, since it's easy to close one's thighs while in it, and it restricts access. But it's comfortable enough. One can also use the rope as quick thigh cuffs, then attach the rope to restraints to keep the legs open -- but again, having a rope between one's legs tends to get in the way.

Finally, we tried position #4, or as I think of it, the "kneeling in a way that makes your ass muscles hurt" position. This takes significant co-operation from the sub, as it's tiring and easy to move out of. Still, for those who like mental domination and submission, it works, looks hot, and the rope doesn't chafe. 

If this rope were substantially longer, to fit more body types, came with some kind of padding for the neck, and didn't slip down the thighs in position #1, it could be a great product. But as-is, I can only recommend it for two of the four purposes its packaging advertises, and even for those, it could use more length. People with more bondage experience may be able to think of more ways to use this rope, though they may also be too advanced to find it useful.

One more thing: a small black blindfold with an elastic band also comes with the rope. It's not fancy, but it's comfortable for a cheap blindfold, and it works for light play.

Overall, I give this position rope a rating of two stars. We'll be using it for two of the positions advertised on the box (#2 and #4), but for position #1, the highly appealing one that the box shows prominently twice, it's far too uncomfortable.

Thank you, Vibrator.com, for sending me this rope to review. Vibrator.com has lots of other bondage and fetish and sex toys -- including lots of vibrators, of course. Click on the banner below to visit their fun store.

  • Yup, this little guy from Babeland will find your g-spot, and you will be all “this rocks” and then you will have a g-spot orgasm. Just like that. Bazam. At first I thought of G-Ki as sounding like “cheeky,” which was cute. Now I think of it as the G-Key- the key to a bajillion g-spot orgasms.
    Note: Just like last week it’s humor in reviews that really gets me, humor and a strong writer’s voice, and this review has both.  Enjoy!

~ This Week’s Top Three Posts ~

Sex Pistil's Guide to Sucking Great Cock - The penis is not something to be feared. It’s not something to hide from, and it’s definitely not something to be put up with the good china and used for special occasions only. The penis is alive and breathing, so to speak, and as such, is not a one-size-fits-all, if-one-guy-likes-it, all-guys-like-it kind of entity.

An Erotic Vignette"You will come, and when you do, you will yell my name. Because I own you." "No," she whispered again, terrified. The last part of herself... total control over her pleasure, the responses of her body... surely he couldn't... but his eyes said he could.

Dual Erotica: Tahoe - We finally reach our floor and excitement wars with nervousness in my head. After all, it's been a long, long time for me. I don't have the body I once had; I'm not nearly as experienced as you are. But there is no turning back, not that I want to

Does Size Matter? - I am most definitely a size queen when it comes to my sex toys…but there’s a reason for that. Using a dildo is very VERY different from how I get fucked by a guy.

~ Featured Post (Lilly’s Pick) ~

I Want It All - Gender (identity) is different to (biological) sex. Biologically there are males and females, and those who identify as neither (intersex). But it’s sure as hell not that simple, no matter what society says.

Pink Medium Rubber Whip Review for Babeland Toys

I have moved sites. Click here to read this review at elodieonlove.com.

K and I aren't experts when it comes to flogging. The Pink Medium Rubber Whip that Babeland sent me to review is only our third flogger. I worried that the pink color would detract from the experience when K wielded it, though he doesn't care a bit. As gender-savvy as I like to think I am, I still subconsciously associate pink with girliness, and girliness with weakness. I know. I deserve a flogging for that.

Happily, my fears proved unfounded. While this flogger is nearly painless when used with a light touch, when used with force it stings enough to make me forget about the color entirely. It's not an immediate "pay attention!" sting, but a gradual, building one. You know how there are different kinds of spiciness in food? One kind burns your mouth as soon as you take a bite. Another seems mild; you're thinking "this isn't that spicy," and munching away happily, but eventually you realize you've had a gallon of iced tea, and you're going to need at least another gallon before you're through with the meal, and the back of your throat is on fire, and it's glorious. That's what the Pink Medium Rubber Whip is like. It's almost too easy to take... until it isn't.  

This flogger isn't perfect. Its falls sometimes seem to have minds of their own, making it occasionally annoying to control. Also, anyone with sensitivities to latex or rubber should avoid it. For advanced SM enthusiasts, it probably won't be more than a warm-up flogger; even I sometimes find myself wanting more. However, it would make an excellent beginning flogger for anyone who doesn't want to avoid pain altogether, since it can create a light to moderate sting.

One last thing: this flogger is a great cat toy. We may have to get a locking box just for it, because Marzipan can dig it out of the drawer. (And yes, our kitties were disciplining that stuffed wolf on the bed.) 


We enjoy the Pink Medium Rubber Whip, and I think we'll be using it for a long time to come. If our cats don't steal it from us.
Thanks, Babeland, for sending me the Pink Medium Rubber Whip to review. Check out the BDSM and other sex toys at this feminist, sex-positive store.
