I thought I had posted a similar position, but I could not find it so this week’s position is the G-Whiz. I discovered this one in an article called “The Best Sex Positions Ever” over at Women’s Health. I liked their water-color type drawings of the positions, artistic yet sensual I think. Anyways…
For this position the receiving partner should lie on his or her back and lift their legs over their partner’s shoulders. The giving partner lifts up the other’s bottom so it is resting on their thighs and keeps hold for support. This position can help target the g-spot because it narrows the vagina. Try it with slow rocking side to side motion or having your partner life you up and down. The giving partner could even rock up and down on their knees.
Over a year ago I reviewed a wearable vibe called the Fixation Couples Vibe. It was an interesting toy but it didn’t quite work well for me and was a little too buzzy for my liking (check out my full review for more). Since then, I hadn’t thought much about the toy and I recently pulled it out to pass on to a new home. I decided I would mark sure it would still hold a charge only to be disappointed that it would not charge at all and was completely dead. I contacted the company and was informed that the battery only has a shelf life of 1 year and that if it is not charged it will die and the warranty was expired so it would not be replaced. I have never heard of a battery having a shelf life and it makes me want to go and check all of my toys that I don’t use often. I also had no desire to pull it out and try it since the review, so that does show my actual interest and enjoyment of the toy. However, it’s kinda of sad, the thought that the toy was not loved enough that it just died.

If you are still interested, the version being sold is the generation two which is stated as being stronger and charges through USB. It also has more modes that you can use. You can still purchase the vibe as well as the panty and lingerie sets over at My Fixation. If you still need help, don’t forget to check out my original review.
I came across a post a few weeks ago over 8 Animal-Based Sex Positions other than Doggie Style. You may think it’s serious at first with the rocking animation for Mantis position, that is until the female rips the head off the male and eats it. Yep, just like a praying mantis. The rest are just as amusing, from earthworm style (it makes me thing “wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah!”), but I think my favorite is probably barnacle style. Be sure to go over to the post to check them all out, but here are my favorites:
I hope you enjoy them, but I don’t recommend trying them at home!
This week is another from several geeky classics such as Lord of the Rings and the new hit Game of Thrones, Sean Bean. He’s a rugged looking man who plays rugged characters such as Boromir and Eddard Stark. Enjoy!
Eddard Stark, impressive and ready for winter. It’s coming you know.
Cleaned up in a suite and still looking good, though he hardly looks the same without the hair
Today I’m reviewing a newer line of “Luxury” toys from Lovers Package, the Sutera Elite line that includes Blossom, Bailey, and Blee. I am not sure why they all have “b” names, it kinda weirds me out and I’m not sure why.
The Run Down:
- Toy Type: In-ie and/or out-ie
- Manufacturer: Sutera Toys
- Materials: Silicone and ABS Plastic
- Size: Blossom – 4.5″ in length, 1.25″ at the widest; Bailey – 7″ in length, 1.25″ at the widest; Blee – 6.5″ in length, 1-1.5″ in width
- Price – Blossom: $69.95
- Price – Blee & Baily: $79.95
- Pros: Soft material; Blossom has a nice shape
- Cons: Too expensive; Vibrations are not impressive; Likely not silicone
- Intensity: 3/5
- Volume: Blossom & Blee - 3/5; Bailey – 4/5
- Overall Rating: 1.5/5
- Recommended: No, the cost is not justified
The packaging for all three of these toys is pretty much identical. Each toy comes in its own very sturdy cardboard box with a clear plastic window in the front. The front of the package says the toy name and a few of the features of the toy, which are slightly different for each toy. The ends of the box has the cute little Sutera logo and the back lists the toy name and a short little description and personification of each toy. The back also has the company information. Other than the text, the only real difference in the packaging is the color of the design that wraps around the box and the logo and some of the text, which corresponds to the color of the toy.
I choose to review all three toys in one post because they are very similar with only some differences in size and shape. All three are made from ABS plastic and what is labeled as silicone. It is a very smooth and soft feeling material and has very little drag to it. It also doesn’t collect lint or hair at all. Each also seems to have a foam like material inside, except where the motor is, as they are quite squishy and flexible, though since Blossom is the smallest, it is not as squishy because the motor and control pad takes up most of the toy. I do quite like the feel of the material, but they do have a bit of a rubbery scent to them, but only if it’s close to your face. I also tried flame testing them and the material was left a little discolored, but it did not catch on fire. I also found that after using one of them internally once, that I had the same itchy sensation I get from latex exposure. The lube is one that I have used frequently with no issue, but I also have not been able to re-create the feeling, so I am not sure. Most likely they are a silicone blend, so I would recommend sticking with a water-based lube just to be safe. For cleaning, you can use soap and water or toy cleaner, but I would not recommend submerging the toys, because they do not have an o-ring. They are also decently easy to clean, though there is a seam between the plastic and the silicone that may require special attention or the use of an old tooth brush. The Bailey also has some extra ripples on the back that you will have to pay a bit more attention too as well.
The shape and size is where each of the toys differ. The Blossom is the smallest around 4.5″ in length and 1.25″ at it’s widest. It narrows to a bit of a point and has a bump that dips down to the nose of the toy and on the back it is fairly flat and broad with a dip in it. I found this toy better suited for clitroal stimulation, as it doesn’t have much length for inserting. You can use the smaller point on the front or the broader back. I did find that the dip in the back is a good resting place for your finger which kind of allows it to act as a vibrating finger extension.
The Bailey is what I would consider the g-spot toy of the line. It comes in about 7″ in length and 1.25″ in diameter. The front of the toy is a broad flat surface until it rounds out and curves up to a slight point. The back has a broad head that comes to the point at the tip of the toy, with small ridge lines on the back. I could not feel these when inserted but looking at it kind of makes it look like the back of a cobra’s head. For me, the Bailey just doesn’t work for g-spot stimulation. The point is only slightly curved and much too small. You could also use it for external clitoral stimulation with a slightly longer reach than the Blossom.
The last of the line is Blee. Blee is the traditional style vibrator of the bunch and comes in at 6.5″ long and tapers from 1.25″ to just under 1″. It’s a straight style vibrator and it has a small amount of texture, but it is only for looks as I could not feel it at all. There is nothing particularly exciting or interesting about the shape, but it would be well suited for someone that is looking for a slimmer toy.
Each toy runs on two AAA batteries and has the same control panel There are two buttons, one that turns the toy on and the other that simply cycles through the settings. The batteries are inserted into a slide off panel and there is no o-ring of any type, so I would not recommend submerging these toys, but I think it would be safe to say they are splash proof. All three toys have the same vibration settings and, even though they are slightly varied in size, they all have the same vibration intensity. On high, it’s still a medium level vibration at best, and more on the buzzy side which is about what I would expect for two AAA’s. The vibrations in all three toys are also focused in the end, which is where it feels like the motor is located. There are three levels of steady vibration and four patterns. The vibrations are not overly impressive. The toys are decently quite, they probably would not be heard through your average door, however the Bailey has a louder rattle to it. I didn’t hear it so much when inserted it, but outside it is a deal louder than the other too, but it seems more like a defect than it’s desire. There seems to be something loose and when you squeeze in the right spot it stops making the extra noise. It also stops when it’s held upside down, which is kinda strange.
Overall, I am not fond of any of the Sutera Elite line. The Blossom is probably my favorite, based on the shape, but the vibrations leave a little bit to be desired. My biggest issue is the cost. Blossom is the cheapest at $70 while the other two are $80. For something with un-impressive vibration and runs on two AAA’s, that is waaaay to much. They are marketed as luxury toys, but I do not think that they are silicone, or at least not completely silicone. Given that, I would have to say pass on all three of these toys.

I honestly can’t believe I haven’t posted this one yet. I could have sworn I did but I looked back over them all and couldn’t find it. This fail is a short series of messages from one guy and my smartass responses.
Him: Im your man
Me: My man for what exactly?
Him: For the best sex u have ever had oh and yes ill long dick
Me: Huh… I didn’t know that the letter u likes long dick and sex. Have fun with that letter!
I did ignore the grammar on the first message… and I’m assuming he meant “ill long” like crazy long. Unless he was just trying to have “I have”. Either way… I don’t know why he never responded! And apparently he no longer has a profile, go figure.
I decided to do a follow up review for the Shunga Arousal Gel because I recently tossed my bottle in the trash. Not because it got funky or anything but because I used it all. The original review was posted September 2011, so yes, the little bottle has lasted me that long. I used it fairly frequently too, but a tiny bit is all you really need. It’s one of the few products I have actually used until it runs out. Even when I’ve gotten other arousal gels to try, I still come back to this one. I’m actually considering getting a new bottle of it. *gasp* me paying real money for something is big news!

- Toy Type: Pleasure Gels and Creas
- Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, L-Arginine HCL, L-Ornithine HCL, Hydroxyethylcellulose,Damiana Extract, Peppermint Oil, Capsicum O.R., Vitamin E
- Size: 1 oz

This week’s sex position comes from an article I came across called Sex Positions that Double as Exercise. I figured since I’m trying to eat better and such that this would be a good choice. Mostly it’s common positions, but I did come across one that’s a little more advanced, The Bridge.
This position is not for the weak of heart and it wouldn’t hurt if you’re fairly skilled in yoga. The receiving partner gets in a bridge-like position as shown. You can help by having a tower of pillows under your back to help support your weight, but it will really work your butt and inner-thighs. It will also work your biceps, triceps, abs, and calves. Unless you are gold medal gymnast I wouldn’t expect to hold this position for too long. The giving partner can also help by supporting her lower back and butt to help take some of the strain off her. This position is targeted for a quick bit of fun before moving on to another position.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned how bad of a reviewer I’ve been… I do feel horrible about it but nothing I can really do about it besides getting caught up and such. Today I’m going to review a product from Pure Romance from the consultant Elizabeth Tally. She was kind enough to send me the Serenity Aromatherapy Massage Lotion to review many many months ago.

- Size: 4 oz
- Price: $20.00
- Pros: Lasts longer than lotion; Spreads easily; Doesn’t cause breakouts; Smells better after rubbed in
- Cons: Smells a bit like house hold cleaner; Eventually broke down; Doesn’t last as long as an oil
- Overall Rating: 3.5/5
