Small disappearance…

I was doing so well and trying to keep up with reviews and other various posts, but life happened again.  I put off getting ready for the school year so I got busy with that.  Prepping and figuring out what to do with students.  Then car stuff happened.  Woo.  So I’ve been driving for a week with my driver’s side window down (because the wiring inside died, I even tried to fix it) and of course it’s been raining almost every day.  Yey for being wet.  So with all the other issues I’ve been doing a lot of searching for cars and finally decided on one.

 

So yeah… life happens.  But I’m going to work on at least one review and some things today and hopefully will be able to get a month full of reviews up!

 

Indiegogo Campaign: Ambrosia Vibe

A year or so ago, I was lucky enough to receive the X1 Orgasmatron to review.  If you didn’t know, Orgasmatronics, Inc has since released many other attachments for the Orgasmatron (which reviews of each will be coming this summer!).  However, this post isn’t here to talk about the X1 Orgasmatron or their attachments.  It’s to talk about Orgasmatronics, Inc Indidgogo Campaign.  Now usually, I don’t post about upcoming products.  I tend to stick to reviews, giveaways, and Dating Fails.  So why am I posting about it?  Well first because I’m a geek and I get excited over really cool uses of technology, especially when sex is involved.  And two because for as long as I can remember I have always wanted to have a real penis.  Now items like the Fun Factory Share and Tantus Feeldoe take strapons to another level but it still doesn’t give you much stimulation from stroking the shaft.  This is where the Ambrosia vibe should get you excited.

ambrosiaThe Ambrosia vibe responds to touch, pressure change to be exact.  There are no moving parts in the dildo itself but any touch, squeezing, sucking, or fucking transmits a pressure to a control box which then converts that to a vibration pattern in the bullet.  It is honestly one of the coolest vibrators I have seen since I started this blog.

Now, since this is on Indiegogo, you can’t buy it and get it next week.  The campaign is to help crowdfund the manufacturing cost.  Funding options start as low as $5 and range upwards of $5000 for those with really deep pockets.  But even for $5 you get something for it.  If you donate $5, you get a nifty LESS PANTS, MORE SCIENCE button.  The early bird special (to safe a lot on getting your hands on an Ambrosia Vibe) has sold out, but you can still get one.  Donate $149 and you will get the basic dildo, control box, bullet, and pressure tube.  Also, at other levels you can get stuff like autographed DVDs from Buck Angel and subscriptions to Courtney Trouble’s indiepornrevolution.

But I’m going to stop rambling about it now because they have a TON of information about the awesomeness of the Ambrosia Vibe on their Indiegogo page.  Go check it out, donate if you love it as much as me, and prepare yourself for awesome.  The campaign is already 62% funded (there are stretch goals so keep donating!) and it will end on July 17th.

You can also check out Orgasmatronics on Pintrest and Twitter to stay up to date!

Catalyst Con

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…

CatalystCon East '14

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.

So…

I’ve had several of these posts recently and not a lot of much else (especially reviews), but I’m going to start working on it. I’m going to try with at least one review a week and maybe some other posts.

As an update for what’s been happening with me, when I last posted an update, my classes were getting crazy and I just didn’t have the time and energy to put into the blog.  Since then I have graduated (big WOOT!).  I scored a summer job, which was meh.  It made money to cover some rent and bills, but it wasn’t going anywhere.  During that time I was struggling to find a full time job.  All of that left me extremely depressed, lonely, and thus the lack of sex drive, reviewing, and the drive to post.

In good news though, I have scored a full time job.  It was extremely last minute so the blog got completely put on hold.  I moved, I started working, and I’ve been working for a little over a month.  Now it’s time to ease myself back into this part of my life.  I have still been struggling with some depression and loneliness.  I even considered stopping reviewing all together, but it’s been a big part of my life for so long.  Plus the local communities tend to know me as sextoygeek, I can’t disappoint them can I?  Plus… it is kinda fun :-p

Anyway… I’m going to keep this going for a bit longer.  With a full time job, it’s not likely that it will be posting as much as I have in the past, but I will be posting.

Struggling…

You have probably noticed the sever lack of posts and it is for several reasons.  The usual reason is school.  I have 5 classes and several of them are quite demanding of my time, which leaves me with little free time to write or even test out items.  The second is just general lack of motivation.  When I do have time from classes, it is hard to get myself to do more work and write more when my mind really just wants a break.  I have also been dealing with some issues of loneliness and depression and general just feeling like crap.  We’ve all been there, it’s just a matter of digging myself back out.

But in slightly better news, I did get to go to CatalystCon where I saw people from Momentum last year and met lots of new people.  Plus I got to hug Dylan Ryan and she even said I give great hugs!  But I am not going to talk much about that here, that will be for a fully on post. I am also gradating soon!  I passed my final exam and I am completely done, besides my classes, though only one is required for my degree.  I am putting together my resume and such and really need to start applying for jobs (I’m a bit behind on that too), but I am getting closer to being out of the place that makes me unmotivated and often miserable.  Hooray!  Plus there is a sci-fi con coming up that I quite excited about.  Speaking of sci-fi, if any of you are sci-fi/fantasy geeks and interested in reading another blog, please email me.  I just started up another blogging venture, though I am trying to keep the two separate and will not be linking to that blog directly from here.

Now, in order to get a better idea of what I need to focus on on my blog I have created a survey with a few questions.  Please help me out by answering the questions here. It would be much appreciated, plus it will help you get more of what you want on here!

Happy Holidays!

I know the Holiday Seasons is technically over now.  I hope you all had a great holiday season and your New Year is getting off to a great start.  I know the holidays really took a toll on me, especially my blog, but the new year will bring lots of new reviews, most positions of the week, more Humpday Hunks, giveaways, and more.  If you guys have anything you want to see me add, review, or anything at all, please let me know.

School killed me…

Most of you know that I am in graduate school.  What you may not know is just about every horror story that you have heard about grad school, has happened to me.  From the department fighting against me, my adviser not writing letters of recommendations, etc.  Because of that, I’ve gone through a lot of stress and turmoil.  I attempted to transfer departments, but I did not get accepted and only found out a week before classes were supposed to start at the end of August.  I was stuck with no degree, no adviser, and no funding or even a job, sleeping on my mattresses on the floor of a friends spare room.

The Friday before classes started, I went to talk to a professor about doing a non-thesis Master’s option in my old department.  I had no intention of signing up for classes because I had no funding, I was just going to try to find a job.  After walking out of his office, I saw I had missed a call and called the number back.  The call was to offer me a graduate assistant position doing IT work and that is when things started to fall in place and the blog started to take to the background.  Sunday night, I registered for classes and Monday they started.  Since then, I’ve been working 20 hours a week and I’m currently enrolled in four classes which is probably another 30-40 hours of work a week.  So… I’m behind again.  But as I’m starting to get control over my classes, I’m going to be regaining my work on the blog.  Starting tomorrow there will be a review and a Dating Fail, followed by more reviews, positions of the week, and hump day hunks (which I need suggestions for!!).

I’m going to be trying very hard to keep up with the blog better and I have a ton of awesome things coming up to review including a Mona 2!

New Tumlbr!

So I know I’ve been kinda bad about posting.  There’s been a lot going on, but I’m trying very hard to get my life and blog under control.  I have some very long over due reviews and those will be coming soon.  I know I’ve said this before, but I’m trying to light a fire under my ass and get things rolling.  In the mean time, I’ve started a new Tumblr blog!  http://sextoygeek.tumblr.com/ I’ll be posting  about sales and bring up some reviews from the past.  So head on over, subscribe and share!

P.S.  Part of my stress has been due to financial concerns so all of you that click my links, share my blog, and buy products are greatly appreciated!

I’m back!!

So I’ve had some posts going while I was away, but it’s been a long time since I was able to get any reviews and such done.  Where exactly have I been?  Well, it’s quite a story!

I had the opportunity to go on a study abroad trip.  I left on May 15th to head to Rome.  A few of us spent about four days in Rome, seeing all the sights, and then we took a train up to Zurich, Switzerland.  We had some issues with the train, due to the earthquake that had happened in Italy and there was about a 4 hour delay on the trains.  That made us late for meeting up with the big group in Zurich, but things went fairly smoothly after that.  Most of it was paid for, so there was lots of amazing food and lots of wine (I tried it at least, but I’m just not a wine person).  It was a really amazing experience, but I’m quite glad to be home.

Now that I’m home I have a lot of things to do.  I have to find a new apartment and such and I have quite a few reviews to get caught up on, but after that I think I will probably tone down my reviewing a bit.  Things were quite busy this past semester, so I think one or two reviews a week will be a good pace for me.  There may be a bit more during the summer if i don’t find a constant job, so we shall see.  But stay tuned as reviews will be coming very soon!

I have returned! Kinda…

So I’ve been gone and not really posting, well, anything.  I haven’t really been around on Twitter either.  In one of my last posts I mentioned how busy things had been and they have been crazy.  I’ve finished up with classes and finished up all my grading and class duties.  So yey!  Now I have a few days to write a ton of reviews to schedule and such and then I’m off to Europe.  I’m not looking forward to the flight but it’s going to be an awesome trip.  I’ll have my computer, so I may try to get some other stuff up, pictures or something, but we’ll see.  There will be some posts scheduled so be sure to keep your eyes out for it!
