Vortex and Pleasure Wand from RubyGlass21Check out them beauts! Meet the Vortex (top) and Pleasure Wand, two absolutely gorgeous glass dildos sent to me from the generous folks of RubyGlass21. And because my last contest for an equally sexy glass dildo from RubyGlass21 was such a success, they are letting me give away a Vortex and a Pleasure Wand to my awesome readers.

Having the pleasure to try these dildos, I can report that they are both great. The Pleasure Wand, although it is only 1″ in diameter, hits my G-spot with ridiculous accuracy — no matter which end I’m using. Its small diameter also means that insertion and thrusting are never uncomfortable. It is abnormal for me to trust a G-spot toy with my boyfriend, but he had no trouble using this one on me.

The Vortex is the more beautiful of the two, but it is more basic in terms of sensation. Measuring 6″ long and 1″ in diameter, it is fairly petite. It doesn’t really stimulate my G-spot much, and it’s not textured (everyone knows how much I love extreme texture), but anyone who loves smoothness would be very pleased with it.

Do you want one? To enter, comment on this entry and tell me three things:

  1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)
  2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
  3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

If you want to be nice and help me spread the word, you can tweet or blog about this contest (here’s a shortened URL to make things easier: http://is.gd/1DTGq), but doing so won’t up your chances of winning. Do it for brownie points. Or karma.

The deadline for entries is July 31, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. I will put the entrants in two groups and pick one winner randomly from each. International readers are welcome!

A huge thanks to RubyGlass21 and SexToy for furnishing this giveaway!

    Great contest!!

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    If there were no limitations by law or otherwise to control my creativity, I’d name my sex toy shop “Go Fuck Yourself.” Because, isn’t that what you do with sex toys?

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    I especially appreciated your review of “Champion” because of your honesty (which is why I enjoy the majority of your reviews). You didn’t make any attempt to conform to your peers’ views on the “film” even in spite of the forward-thinking style of the movie.

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    I would definitely love to have the Pleasure Wand because I’ve never had a g-spot toy before. They are both lovely, though.

  • 1 If I had a sex toy store I would have a really hard time naming it because I know of all the really good ones I can use then I would go with something lame like Sex Toys From Bill just because it is simple and it uses my name haha

    2 I really liked your post on don wands it really got me to thinking how nice some retailers are compared to others

    3 I would like the Vortex just because i think it looks better even though they both look really good

  • 1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    Addiction to Sex
    For Those Addicted to the Art of Celebrating Sexuality and Individuality.

    The “Addiction” part because its part of the personal brand and I while I know Nymphomania is not a fun thing being “addicted” your your sexuality in a way of finding and exploring it is something I really like the idea of. I believe sexuality should be celebrated. So many people are afraid of their own bodies and sexual wants, everyone is different and I don’t think anyone should ever be called weird for a sexual want or need.
    I would have the store be very tongue in check as well as being very straightforward. Sex toys on display everywhere for people to touch and play with. Nothing made of creepy jelly but plenty of fun and sexy toys such anything created by Lelo or Fun Factory, and my sales people would get a 50% discount. Happy staff are a must 🙂

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    I was really grateful for your post on the Curve. I was planning on purchasing one with what little savings I had and when I read your review I realised that It wouldn’t be what I wanted. After reading more of your reviews I settled on a glass dildo with Ripples instead 🙂 I enjoy all your reviews (both the good and the bad) and Your posts prompted me to start a wish list of all the toys I want to own in the future!

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    I would love a Pleasure Wand, I don’t have any toy that is good for G spot stimulation and I am dying to try one! Though I wouldn’t run down a The Vortex either! Its Gorgeous!

  • This is an awesome contest!

    1. If I had a sex toy store I would name it something like Vivacious Vegan and only stock vegan products and body-safe products. I like blunt names a lot as well, but sometimes people who are just getting into sex toys can be scared off by really blunt names and I think Vivacious Vegan sounds friendly.

    2. I absolutely loved your post on the LELO Ella. It was so inspiring and informative that it made me want to go buy one the moment I read it. The way your described your experience made it sound like every girl should have one, and since I’ve never had a g-spot orgasm it would be great for me.

    3. I definitely would like the Vortex! It’s so pretty that I could sit it on my coffee table. However, both are awesome looking.

  • 1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    Birds and Bees. First off, it just sounds kinda cute to me. I can see the logo now! Hehe. Second, I would want my store to be elegant, a wonderful place for people to come in and very slowly open up to their own sexuality. In my house growing up, you didn’t talk about sex. I learned about it from school and friends. I would want others who had similar experiences growing up to really feel welcome. I would want to carry lots of how-to books, and romance novels, and the like. I’ve been in some porn stores or sex stores that look so raunchy on the inside, I really would want people to feel eased into it, not shoved into sex toys and paddles and stuff. 🙂

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    Personally, I thought your review of the Ella was magical! I guess it sounds a little weird, but how you came sounded so.. beautiful. And, by the way, totally made me jealous that it made you squirt. I’ve had the Ella and the Gigi in my shopping cart for almost a week now, and I go back every day to stare at them. I want them both! After reading about how you were “gushing” over the Ella.. I think my mind is made up! Thank you! (source: http://heyepiphora.com/2008/12/review-lelo-ella-and-my-first-ejaculation/

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    Oh man. Decisions, decisions. Well, I think I’d go with the vortex. I think a glass toy should be used for the gspot, and not thrusting, and the vortex looks like it could handle that job. And.. it’s got swirlies all down the base! I mean, who could beat that, huh? 😀

  • Juliet Burgess

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?\

    The Feelies.

    Taken from the novel Brave New World, where sex is not shameful and encouraged in people of all ages for recreation and human bonding. Also, I think it sounds kind of fun to say. It encompasses the casualness of sex with what I hope to become common place, without (heaven forbid) offending any passers by.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    The most interesting posts have been relating to the drama with Don Wands. Their behaviour in this matter really made me not want to buy their products! That’s just terrible business sense. But specifically, I appreciated your review of the iVibe Egg. I had been debating it, because I’ve heard through the ether than it might be a good clit stimulator, but I feared all the issues you found with it – along with the cost! There’s no focus of attention, it’s harder to mix up the sensations. Thanks for saving me that buck! 😉

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    I think I am with you on the pleasure wand – I’ve longed for some g-spot stimulation but have never been able to afford assistance in this matter! 🙂 I’m all about the bumps, too.

  • 1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    Mars/Venus. Kind of catchy, modern, and would catch the eye of both men and women. Not overly porny, rather it gives it a little elegance.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    I loved your Ella review. It inspired me to go and purchase the Ella for myself and I’m sososo glad I did, it feels amazing!! It changed the way I jill off! I’m going a review on it for EF, just gotta…test it some more. lol

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    The Pleasure Wand. It was with the Ella I discovered my g-spot and I want to explore it more. I’ve not had an orgasm from it yet, but I’m thirsting after it like you wouldn’t believe, and I’m looking for anything to help me along the way to discover myself further!

  • mivox

    1. Let’s see … a sex toy shop. Hmmmm. “O to Z” “The big O and beyond” lol

    2. I was totally waiting for your Romp review, after hearing you talking about it all the time on Twitter! lol … I’m thinking I definitely need to get one. 🙂

    3. I’m still hunting for the perfect g-spot toy, so I’d have to go with the Pleasure Wand.

  • Regin

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?
    Well, “Bedroom Fantasies” is already taken by an area furniture store (promises more than it delivers, in my opinion). I’d say “Objects d’Amour”.
    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    I’m going with “Saying “dildo” on Twitter”, because it still makes me laugh out loud every time I read it.
    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    The Pleasure Wand, since this will be the Lady of the house’s first glass dildo. Simple and straightforward for a first impression, I always say.

  • newme21

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?

    This was hard because I could think of several names. But the one I decided on was BOB’s Bizarre Bazaar. The BOB stands for “battery operated boyfriend” of course. The rest just sounds memorable, cool and appropriate for a sex shop.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    I thought your Ella review was great! So much so, that even though I have Gigi, I now want the Ella as well.

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    I would prefer the Pleasure Wand. I’m a total G-spot girl and I’ve always wanted to try a glass G-spot dildo.

    Great contest! Thanks!
    Newme21

  • 1. I’d call my sex shop The Top Notch not only because of the obvious (selling only highest quality toys) but also because of that old joke about notching one’s bedpost if one were sexually promiscuous. Kind of reclaiming the idea of responsible, acceptable sexual openness.
    2. Honestly, I appreciated the review of the Treeze vibrator because it brought to light a less-than-stellar toy company. I appreciate that because I would really only like to support the best of the best toy companies.
    3. I would want the Pleasure Wand because I loooove G-spot stim. Yeah the Vortex is prettier, but if it doesn’t really stimulate anything then I have no interest in it.

    Thanks!

  • mivox

    I totally forgot the “why” part on the toy store name … O to Z is meant to insinuate the idea that great sex is about so much more than just having an orgasm, and the store would carry more than just toys. Lingerie, porn, erotica, and whatever else tickles my fancy.

  • 1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)
    I’d call mine Finding Yourself.
    I believe that’s what sex toys do – allow you to find yourself and discover what makes you and/or your partner more fulfilled sexually.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    I enjoyed the review of the Bootie. It helped me decide to get one, even though I wasn’t sure about it before.

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    I would like the Vortex. It’s absolutely gorgeous!

  • LOLmerrill

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    Quiver. Because its flirty, sexy and fun without being obvious OR ambiguous. As a token hippy-veggie, my store would be green, (NOT PINK!) meaning body-safe and earth friendly materials are standard. Also, all bubblegum barf pink products with pornstar packaging are outlawed.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    I first found the ever entertaining Epiphora by way of the Xtreme pack gospel, (preach it, girl!) but it was the Lelo Ella review that I most appreciated. As a clit stim only girl, it inspired me to broaden my horizons and try, try again.

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    I would LOVELOVELOVE the pleasure wand as it is beautiful and seemingly perfect for my maiden g-spot voyage.

    RubyGlass21- I love you.

  • tim

    1. ooh.. that’s a hard one. I suck at naming things. uhh.. Dildo Hut? Vibrator Shack? hmm. probably wouldn’t go over well. better go for something tamer. Tim’s Toy Shop? no.. people would think it was for kids. gonna have to settle for something bland, like Playthings.

    2. the post about people avoiding the word “dildo” when retweeting your last contest. That was funny. 🙂

    3. the Pleasure Wand

  • Sexorcism

    1) I’d name my toy store Green Goddess and feature “green” products for all.
    2) I loved reading about your experience with NobEssence Romp (http://heyepiphora.com/2009/06/review-romp/). I have one myself and it’s my favorite product of all time.
    3) Vortex. I’ve already tried the Pleasure Wand and the Vortex looks smaller and slimmer and more ergonomic for me!
    Thanks, Epiphora!

  • 1) If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?
    Lily’s Lusty Lab, though then I’d have to rename my blog. I picked this name partly to convey an open, non-judgmental feeling of sexual and sensual experimentation. Samples of the toys would be available so you could feel a toy before you buy. (but no experimentation or test drives in the store, please!) I would carry not just sex toys, but all kinds of sensuality products, from the high-end luxury products made of the finest, safest materials, as well as lower priced entry-level products for those who are on a tight budget. Of course, the staff uniform would be sexy lab coats.

    2) Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    Your review of the Lelo Gigi. While you weren’t madly in love with it, you were very thorough, and defined what characteristics would make or break it for various people, as opposed to the Ella. It was the information I needed to pick which was right for me.

    3) Which dildo would you want if you won?
    I’m going to have to go with the Vortex. It’s beautiful, it’s smooth (and oh do I love me some smooth), and an overall curve usually fits me better than straight with a curve at the end.

  • barnapkinpoet

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?
    part of me wants to choose something like “queer” because, yes i’m a little strange, a lot queer, and i like using the word in what i think is a positive way, which is what my store would be about.. sex and body positivity. however, i wouldn’t want to market to *just* queer folks.. hmm. i can’t think of anything too witty right now.. *blush*

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    i always enjoy when you don’t sugarcoat things.. some that come to mind are the ohmibod review and even your more recent one for the tantus silicone stroker. 🙂

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    the pleasure wand, please & thank you.. especially because from what you said, it would be perfect for me. 🙂

  • Addition: I just wanted to let you know, your Ella review inspired me to get one!

    1. “The P Spot” cuz my first name begins with ‘P’ and I enjoy backdoor play (I’m male), which leads me to…

    2. “Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men” DVD. The reason should be obvious!!! I’m thinking about getting this for my wife & I to watch together… 😉

    3. “The Vortex” the flared base compliments #1 and #2 above!!!

  • Kiya

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?
    Proclivity. Because it means a “natural inclination,” and I think toys should be thought of as more commonly used, as a spice that’s “okay” by the general public, instead of having some kind of taboo attached that they’re weird/abnormal/a replacement/=inadequacy.
    Plus, it’s fun to say. 8D
    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    I loved your review on Ella. It’s very descriptive and well written, and just, well, gushes. 😛 It being so candidly positive helped me to decide to get one myself, actually.
    Though I have to admit, the Taffy Tickler Silicone Sweets one can still make me laugh. And cringe.
    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    I think the Vortex. It seems like it would be perfect for a good thrusting, since I already have such a nice g-spotter.

  • Pingback: Sexuality Happens » Pleasurists #38()

  • Mysty

    1. I’m never any good at naming things, especially shops, but maybe something like “Sexsy Playthings”

    2. Ella … would have to be my favourite. I love reading about peoples first ejaculation experience, and vividly reminds me of my first ejaculation experience I had. I love reading hot sexy stories.

    3. I love the look of the Vortex, and can imagine it filling my pussy just perfectly, however I would also love to test the Pleasure Wand, and have my girlfriend thrust it inside me, rubbing my g-spot just perfectly.

    This is a great contest, and I’m very happy that it is open to international readers, many other competitions I have seen are only open to a particular country, and usually not Australia. Great work!

  • @Mysty: Thank you for your entry! I do need you to pick one dildo or the other, though, for this to be a valid entry. Thanks!

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)
    Sodomy Not Bombs!
    Well, it’s a little bit political; it’s a cute reference to food not bombs; it’s queer; the word ‘sodomy’ needs to be reclaimed from the haters; and i actually think it’s true that if we were all busy with more sodomy we wouldn’t have time or inclination for bombs.

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    “Saying “dildo” on Twitter” – it was both funny and intelligently critical. And it served as a good reminder that anybody could be reading the stuff we put online

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    The Vortex.

    1. i would name my shop :: “my sex toys are so better than yours, go fuck your self (dot) com” – it would be a e-commerce store. i would name it this because it is funny. and because people use sex toys to fuck themselves.
    2. i like this post the best because it is a post about a GIVEAWAY!!! yeah!
    3. i want the pleasure wand.

    thank you very much!

  • Lilly

    1. It would be a BDSM flavored shop and I would call it My Ties. It would have a nice tropical boozy decorating theme so everyone would feel welcome and relaxed =D

    2. The Crystal teaser review, because I had definitely considered purchasing it until I found out it was that tiny!

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    The vortex, since it’s just so pretty!

  • 1. This might sound a touch too familiar, but I swear I thought of this before I happened across your blog: I’ve always wanted a sex toy store called Epiphany. There’s a restaurant here of that name, and before I had been there for dinner I walked by and imagined it was this fantastic elegant sex toy store in a revamped Victorian home. The food there is good, but I think we can do better. 🙂

    2. Your review of the Ella is my favorite. Even though I haven’t made friends with my Ella yet, I really liked reading about your first ejaculation– your experience sounded so similar to mine, it brought a smile to my face remembering that afternoon. I think too many women (and men) still have negative ideas about female ejaculation, and it’s so important to spread the word that this is a natural, fabulous experience!

    3. Though I love g-spot toys, I have many… so I would prefer the Vortex, since I love smooth toys with a more tapered head.

    Thanks for hosting such a lovely giveaway!

  • 1. If I owned a Sextoy Shop it would be called “A Kinky Dichotomy” because I would market to all people even polar opposites because we all know even though who decry us as perverts shop for sextoys just online so nobody sees there car a that “evil” store.

    2. Review I liked the best and why: The taffy tickler silicone sweets review because I had been thinking about getting one and yet don’t want my pussy scraped raw.

    3. I would like to win the pleasure wand because I have nothing quite like it

  • molten_emotion

    1. I’d probably call it ‘O+’ because it’s accurate-hopefully you’d have a lot of possible orgasms from a store like that, and the connotation is pleasant. I’d have gone with “Buzz Off” if it didnt sound so mean.

    2. I especially appreciated your blog on the Liberator Throes. I had NO idea anyone made something like that, and dear god do I need one. Im asking Santa.

    3. The pleasure wand, please. Could always use more g-spot stim.

  • Purple-Foxglove

    Okay, so firstly, I’ve been pondering what I would call my store for like a week, and what I’ve come up with is this: “Jouets D’Orgasme” It’s french for Orgasm Toys. I kind of think another language makes it worldly and unique, which would be what I’d be going for, with a concentration on all toys exotic and high quality.

    Secondly, you know, the death of your xtreme pack (sad as it was) made the best blog post. Cracked me up for a good five minutes. And (as I commented) it really would make a great time capsule addition. hehe

    Last but not least, I’m inclined to say that the Vortex would be my first choice (yay smooth stimulation/temp play) but to be honest, I’d be more than happy with either, they’re both lovely and I’m certainly not picky. lol

  • @Purple-Foxglove: I’m going to put you down for the Vortex unless you tell me otherwise. Thanks!

  • Lady Alexandria

    1. If I owned a sex store I would call it “Catalyst” because sex toys are a ‘catalyst’ towards more pleasure, they can improve sex between couples, and they’re also a catalyst to becoming more familiar with your body during masturbation–you get to know your “sweet” spots, likes and dislikes.
    2. My favorite post was the one of Ella. If it weren’t for that post, I would’ve never given Ella a second glance. In fact, I was dead-set on buying the expensive Gigi (by Lelo)–but when I read your post, I was converted. I bought her and have loved her ever since! So thank you for that post!!
    3. If I won, I would love to have the Vortex. It’s very beautiful, eye-catching and it’s the shape that I enjoy most when it comes to dildos.

  • 1. I’ve actually thought long and hard about what my own sex shop would be like and it evolved into a lovely fantasy that I would just love to make real someday. Allow me to elaborate: the place would be called Mistress Ashley’s Flesh Bar and it would be, not just a sex shop but also a burlesque/strip bar that employs women of all shapes, sizes, and beauties. I would have long, meandering hallways that are lined with beautiful erotic art and doors and in each door you can watch/indulge in a different kind of kink/fetish/whatever you want to call it. I would have subversive porn playing in various monitors around the place, smut that stimulates the mind as well as the body. And of course, there would be a lovely lobby where a large variety of sex toys and products are sold. The whole place would be employed with people who genuinely understand and appreciate sex, sexual exploration and sex toys. So, that’s my ridiculously detailed, tad over-the-top idea that I’ve fostered for awhile now, haha.

    2. It’s hard to remember which posts of yours I like best but I’d have to go with some of the ones that help me when I’m trying to learn something. When I was trying to figure out what would be best for me for my first glass dildo I read a lot of reviews from a lot of different places on a lot of different dildos. So posts like the lemon-drop glass dildo or the Don Wands blue-tip clear rings dildo were immensely helpful to me.

    3. I would definitely want the Pleasure Wand because I <3 G-spot stimulation. And while the Vortex is very pretty I like the simplistic design of the Pleasure Wand.

    <3

  • Greg T

    1. If I owned a sex shop I would definitely call it “The Boombox” because it’s cute and kitschy and hopefully reminds people that sex is supposed to be fun.

    2. I found your review of the Hitachi Magic Wand to be extremely helpful as for years I have wondered about it and had recently considered buying one for my fiancee whose still a sex toy novice. However after reading your post we decided that it may just be too much. Instead we opted for My Secret and she has never been happier.

    3. Now if I am lucky enough to win I would definitely choose the Vortex. It is an absolutely gorgeous work of art.

  • Temple

    I would name my shop “Come up and see me some time” (yes, I know that’s not the right quote, but it’s the one everyone knows) because there are several things about Mae West that would connect to my ideal toy store. The voluptuous, well-corseted body when fashion said a woman should be thin. The raunchy innuendoes. The “I’m going to do what I want” attitude. Just so awesome. And it would be on an upper floor to prevent creepy wanderers-in, making the store name even more apropos.

    I most liked the article where you talked about the sex blogger community and how much it means to you. Community can be hard to find these days.

    I’d like the Vortex. My current glass is too bumpy and too big for me. 🙁

    If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)
    Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    Which dildo would you want if you won?

    If I were to open a sex shop I’d go with a classic name like “Do Cum In” or “Fantasies Alive” . I would probably opt for the second name just cause I do have a modicum of class LOL. I would offer a wide range of toys and have an information area where one could research toys and see some reviews of them. My staff would have extensive training in toys and their proper useage as well as basic customer service.

    Name one post or review from Epiphora I appreciated or enjoyed??? How cruel is that? *Sigh* ok let’s see… I have to say the one post that comes to mind right now is a recent one in which Epiphora reviews Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men. Generally I like Tristan’s work but I hadn’t seen this one yet. The review was very thorough and showcased the best points of the video while honestly critiquing the scenes. I put in an order just after reading this review, both my guys have expressed an interest in anal exploration so I figured this might be a non threatening way to proceed!

    Hmmmm both toys look absolutely awesome but I think the Pleasure Wand would be awesome for me. 🙂

    Oh boy, tough competition!

    Sex Toy shops are too fun to name.

  • @Juliet Burgess: I know! I’m glad I’m picking winners randomly because there are some really awesome entries here.

  • 1.If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?

    I’d call it “The Library” or something equally blasé, so that people could talk about it in public without being embarassed. “Oh, I’m going to go to the library and then come home…” (Though I am a fan of the “Birds and Bees” idea.)

    2.Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    Definitely “Romp;” because it not only convinced me to take the plunge into anal play, but I was so impressed with the review that I put it on my birthday list!

    3.Which dildo would you want if you won?

    The Pleasure Wand… (tI’ve yet to find that pesky spot!)

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why?
    Externally, the place would have to have an old-timey theme, like a foppish Victorian motif or something. For the name, it would be distinguished. “Chauncey Butler’s Shoppe of Adulte Wares, established 1869.”

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.
    A link to your review of Penny Flame’s Expert Guide to Rough Sex was what brought me to this site originally, so I’ll have to go with that.

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?
    My girlfriend has indicated to me that she would be more fond of the Pleasure Wand. Hey, that (vaguely) rhymes!

    1. If you were to open your own sex toy shop, what would you call it and why? (Thanks to Miss KissThis for this idea!)

    Toy With Me! Because her reviews are to die for!

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    Lelo Ella, and my first ejaculation: The wife was riveted and quite turned on by it, which me likes 🙂

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    ALL OF THEM!!!! MUWHAHAHAHA!

  • @Gabe: Thank you for your entry. However, I can’t count it unless you choose one dildo. As per the rules, I will be grouping entries by dildo, then picking a winners from the separate pools.

    Toy With Me. Her reviews are to die for!

    2. Name one post/review on Hey Epiphora that you appreciated/enjoyed, and explain why.

    Female ejaculation with Ella. The wife LOVED it, thus I loved it 😉

    3. Which dildo would you want if you won?

    Pleasure Wand 🙂

  • 1. If I were to open a sex toy shop I would call it DTs house of Discipline. Why? well I’m DTs BabyDoll after all and since we are a little kinky it works.

    2. I really enjoyed the review on the video Penny Flame’s Expert Guide to Rough Sex. The review kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting more. Great description and leaves you wanting to rush right out and buy it!!

    3. While I would be happy about either of the dildos in this offer I would love the Pleasure Wand because I’m a G-spot orgasm whore.

  • 1. I’d name a sex toy store “Adults-R-Us”. I know that’s a little lame, but if I had to open a store where I live I couldn’t use the word “sex” in it. So instead I’d go with a take on Toys-R-Us… 🙂

    2. My favorite of your posts was “Policing Sex Toy Reviews”. While I enjoy your reviews and opinions on them, it was great to see you give an intelligent opinion in a non-review. You made great arguments for your points, something for which I have much appreciation. It was very much like a legal brief, and well, I’m a dork for law stuff. 🙂

    3. I’d like the Pleasure Wand if I won.

    1. I’d love to call my sex shop The Boy in the Boat. Not over the top obvious as a sex shop name, but the reference is there and people would catch on (or I guess I’d end up with a lot of people looking for a completely different kind of gear and tackle). I like to think that the name is a bit more female-slanted and would appeal to female shoppers more than back alley porn stores usually do. 😛

    2. The Fun Factory Bootie plug review is honestly the first butt plug review I’ve read that’s made me think “I want that in my ass NOW”. Your posts about getting your boyfriend into buttplay have also made me consider that it would be a great starter plug if mine were to get interested in buttplay.

    3. Vortex, please!

    1. Squeegasm … why because I squeegasm’s everytime I get a new toy to play with.

    2. The Treeze post because it was real. I abhor posts that are not real.

    3. Oh hell, I hate picking toys but hmmmm g-spot orgasms turn my brains inside out so it would have to be the Pleasure Wand.
