Today up for review is one of my favorite *cough* types of toys, a rabbit vibrator. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that rabbits just don’t really work for me. I try to keep an open mind with the Entice Marilyn.

- Toy Type: Dual Simulator, Rabbit Vibrator
- Manufacturer: California Exotic Novelties
- Materials: Silicone
- Size: 8.5″ total length; 5″ insert-able length; 1.25″ in diameter; Clit Arm – 2.25″ in length, 1″ in diameter
- Price: $44.99
- Pros: Soft silicone; Arm is flexible; Nice shape
- Cons: Too buzzy for my liking; Not very strong; Battery opperated
- Intensity: 2/5
- Volume: 2/5
- Overall Rating: 3/5
- Recommended: Yes, if you don’t mind a buzzier vibration

Back again with another winner of a message from online dating that I came across when going through some of my old messages.
“What can I say.. You look great and got me captivated with your great pic too.. There once was a time that I didn’t believe in angels, but that has changed since i came across your profile…If I must say this, I think God must have created you on weekend so as not to be disturbed. You are beautiful and I just want to say I will like to get to know you better.. If only you dont mind. drop me your email address and we can chat.
What do you say Beautiful one..?Mine is email@email dot com
Look great and captivated with my great picture.. isn’t that how he would know I look great to begin with? Also comparing an atheist (it’s listed on my profile) to an angel and talking about how God created me is probably not a smooth move. At least his grammar is okay?
Up today for review is something a little kinkier than my usual fair, the Scandal Control Cuffs from the new Scandal line from California Exotic Novelties. These cuffs are marked to be be used for dominance exertion, but they have another use that I’ll talk about later.
The Run Down:
- Toy Type: BDSM – Cuffs; Position Aid
- Manufacturer: California Exotic Novelties
- Materials: Polyester (cuffs), Polypropylene (strap), Polyoxymethylene (buckle)
- Size: Cuffs – Up to 14″ in circumference; Strap 3-9″ between cuffs
- Price: $22.49
- Pros: Cuffs are adjustable; Very soft comfortable lining; Pretty material and design
- Cons: Not much of a “handle” to hold on to
- Overall Rating: 4.5/5
- Recommended: Yes

Things have kind of settled down on both OkCupid and PlentyofFish lately, mostly because I tend to not check them as often, so there hasn’t been a whole lot of crazy. For this edition, I thought I would share some of the simple, yet odd messages I’ve gotten.
“Hi I’m Paul I noticed we have a 82% match ….I’m new to va”
So observant of you! 82% isn’t really that high of a match percentage for me though.
“Saw you visited my profile. Feel free to shoot me a message when ever you like. Have a good night.”
Oh okay, I didn’t think it would be appropriate for me to send a message.
“Text me if interested.xxx.xxx.xxx.”
“Can I take you away in my tardis”
That one was almost cute…
“Hi, I’m Corey, and I’m new to Richmond and getting back into the poly lifestyle after dabbling in college. Would you want to be friends?”
Err… okay? Not giving me much to go on there dude.
That’s all I’ve got for today.
I’ve been out of the game for a while and after CatalystCon… it’s well time to get back into reviewing. I thought I’d start off with one of my favorite things to review, lube! Today I’m going to tell you all about the Ultimate Lube Sampler from Lucky Bloke.
The Run Down:
- Toy Type: Silicone and water-based lube
- Manufacturer: Various
- Includes: 12 randomly selected lube samples
- Ingredients: Depends on the lubes
- Price: $7.99 (usually $9.99)
- Pros: Wide range of good brands; Silicone, water-based, and hybrid lubes included
- Cons: Variance in what you might get
- Overall Rating: something/5
- Recommended: Yes, if you are searching for that perfect lube

The past two years I have gone out of my way to attend what was first Momentum Con and now Catalyst Con East. This year, I had thought very little about it. I haven’t been posting on my blog much because of the new job and depression and such, so I didn’t feel it was right to go. However, a quick look at Twitter lately and it was all people were talking about. I decided to check out the guest list and was blown away to see Betty Dodson is giving the closing Keynote. While I don’t agree with everything she said, she was one of the first sexuality experts that I started reading and watching on YouTube when I got my blog going and it would be an amazing opportunity to see her (and possibly meet her) in person. That being said… the hotel is expensive along with the full weekend registration, though I am much closer this year. So I sought out to find someone to room with. Luckily I was able to find someone to room share and I am happy to say…
If you are going to be there, please let me know so we can meet and/or catch up. There are so many people I only see once a year at this.
You may or may not know, but March 8th is International Women’s Day. LELO is celebrating by hosting an awesome giveaway. By using Pinterest, Twitter, or Facebook (or even all three) you can enter to win some fun new toys. The more people that enter, the more toys they will give away. For every additional 100 people that enter, another set of toys will be given away (i.e. if 200 people enter, 2 of each toy will be given away). Check out LELO Women’s Day Giveaway Contest.
So what all are up for grabs?
The Ida is a premium couples’ massager worn during sex and combines vibrations and rotation, offering new sensations for both partners.
The Ora is LELO’s new sensual massager to offer long, seductive swirls and intense pulsations, such as during oral sex.
The HULA Beads rotate and vibrate at the same time. Completely remote-controlled, they have multiple uses for fun in the bedroom or discreet fun elsewhere.
And just in case that isn’t enough LELO for you, you can use my special discount code GEEK14 to save 20% at LELO.com. Check out LELO’s best sellers and save!
And stay tuned for my own LELO Women’s Day giveaway later this week!
I haven’t been posting much (okay… like none) in a while, so the silliness that is online dating has been building up. I stumbled across with this one profile that I just had to share with you guys.
“Just cut to the chase and sit on my face.
I’m not going to lie to you or hide my intentions. Just want friends, really good friends who meet each other’s physical needs and who also do other stuff outside. It takes a lot for me to open up I’ve been burned so much and I’m tired of it. Don’t lie to yourself give me a chance and you’ll be well pleasured I promise. I prefer someone kinky! Anal swallowing threesomes that sort of thing!!”
The first line made me snicker. It rhymes! I wonder if he did that on purpose…
After that it’s to the point, though it does give a good example of why punctuation (particularly commas) are important. Anal swallowing threesomes. I know what the three are individually, but together… I just imagine someone’s ass swallowing up a group having a threesome and that’s more scary than anything else.
So my first big post back in the game is for a blog tour! I’ve never done a blog tour before, but it seems kind of neat. This blog tour is for the new book, The Adventurous Couple’s Guide to Sex Toys by Violet Blue and Charlie Glickman. Unfortunately due to moving and the like, I do not yet have my hard copy of the book, but I have been able to skim through a digital copy I was sent.
I was a little hesitant about the book, being as I have so many toys and I don’t feel like there is a ton left for me to learn. In scanning through the chapters, two chapters stood out to me and I skipped straight to them: Teledildonic Toys: Online Sex for Two and Sex Machines. I really enjoyed the discussion on Teledildonics and it’s given me some new things to look into and this seems like an important topic for couples, especially in long distance relationships. I did notice that the OhMiBod toy that works with skype was not mentioned in my quick read through. I do also like that this goes into just using a webcam and that area.
The sex machine chapter was very informative. I’ve never used one and have only seen the attachments that you use to convert a handheld saw into a fucksaw and a Synbian. This is probably where I learned the most and want to really dig into the chapter more.
I was really glad to see that this book includes more than just toys, including how to take care of your toys “Care and Feeding) and how to talk about using toys as a couple and just how to use them as a couple. There is even a section on kinkier toys, such as handcuffs and “more ouchy fun”. And don’t worry guys, there are some toys for you and a whole section on strap-ons.
Throughout the book there are grey scale sketch images that show what some of the toys and machines actually look like. However, it is not an image heavy book. The focus with the book is by far the information, not what the toys look like, etc. I think it could be helpful two versions of this book (or a series) where one is for beginners with actual pictures and another is for more advanced. This could also work well with a DVD showing couples using the toys as in each chapter. But perhaps I am just more of a visual creature than most.
