Today’s fail, I decided to pull one from Fetlife. I haven’t been getting too many stupid messages on there lately, but this was actually from a conversation I started.
Me: I dig the Torchwood quote in your profile. Makes me want to go back and re-watch it to find it. It’s been a while.
Him: Hi there, thanks, yep, I’m definitely a fan of the show, but also meant the quote. How goes your week, anything interesting happen?
Me: Nothing too interesting. Trying to get back into a regular schedule and getting work done and such. Have you gotten out to any events?
It seemed to be going well and we seemed to have a good deal in common. However a month went by and nothing. People do get busy and loose interest, but then a month later I got this message:
Him: A munch, yes, and I was planning on going to more…and then something unexpected happen…I was struck by the awesomeness of a young lady I recently happened upon; for starters, she climbed 10 miles up to Mt. Everest base camp. I’ve been spending most of my free time with her.
For me, it was the detail here. He could have just said “Sorry, I met someone”, but he felt the need to include here life achievements. Adding the detail, especially for such a big feat, just seems like he’s rubbing my face in it. Oh you were okay, but look at how much MORE interesting this person is! Thanks dude…
Today I’m showing off a toy that you don’t hear much about anymore, but it’s one of my favorite things in my box, the Nob essence Fling. I have the mahogany version and it’s beautiful.
Yep, per usual another real winner from OkCupid. This guy I’ve seen around for quite some time. We had a very low match percent.
Him: Hey sexy. You want to get together sometime and have some fun?
Him: Why not? :/
Me: Why would I? There’s very little on your profile and we have an extremely low match percent.
Him: What would you like to know? That means nothing.
Me: Yes, actually, it does, so thanks, but I’m not interested.
Another case of trying to guilt a girl into going out with him. We had absolutely nothing in common and he thought I’d be easy and desperate to “have some fun”.

Another from the archives of my OkCupid Inbox. This one was a little odd.
Him: Hey there! Looking good dear. Having any luck here?
Me: Thanks. Not really any luck here.
Him: On a scale of one to ten how much do you love bi men?
Me: Um.. I’m not going to answer that.
Started off okay, fairly generic message, but not bad. Then he hits it way out into left field by jumping right to asking how much I love bi men, but he gives me a scale! He has since deleted his profile, but I don’t think he listed that he was bi on his profile, so the comment seemed especially odd.
I think the thing that makes me the most excited as a reviewer is when I get to help launch a brand new product. Lelo emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in promoting and reviewing their new kegel training product, the Lelo Luna Smart Bead. There have been several kegel personal training products that have come out recently.
To start off with, why do we care about kegels? I have only reviewed a few kegel trainers, but they are all manual or considered “duo tone” kegel toys. But kegels can help increase your ability to climax as well as the strength of orgasm. Kegels also help with bladder control and overall vaginal health. The focus of the Lelo Luna Smart Bead is to increase orgasmic potential. Lelo created a Global survey that showed a few facts about female orgasm:
- 76% of women claim their orgasm wave lasts less than six seconds
- 11% of women have never experienced what they would describe as a climax
- Only 4% of women are ‘Fully satisfied’ with the strength of their orgasms
- Only 17% of women regularly experience multiple orgasms
- 33% of women believe they have never experienced a multiple orgasm
Unlike many studies, this was a 2014 survey which has been gathering date for 5 years and had nearly 50,000 global participants. With these facts in mind, Lelo designed the Smart Bead.
So what exactly is the Lelo Luna Smart Bead? It’s a personal pleasure training device that aims to help women achieve better orgasms through kegel exercise. The device is shaped much like the Lelo Lyla, but one surface features touch-senors that set a progressive training routine to aid women in their kegels. Once inserted, the touch-sensor responds to every squeeze in order to tailor a routine that works for you. There are 5 vibration-guided levels which are automatically updated to match the strength of your pelvic floor muscles.
The Smart Bead itself is fairly simple. You turn it on, insert it, much like a tampon, and follow the program. When the bead vibrations, you squeeze with your kegels and when it stops vibrating you stop. Three vibrations signal the end of the program and the bead turns off on it’s own. Each training routine lasts about 5 minutes, so it doesn’t even take a significant amount of time out of your day. After you have completed a routine, you can activate a continuous vibration mode to test out your orgasm after your exercise.
