Poll: Which toys should I try?

Poll: Which toys should I try?

It’s been a while since I sat down and scouted out new sex toys to review. Usually I grab items as they’re released, like the new We-Vibe Wish that just came in the mail. But as my list of “to review” items dwindles, I decided it would be a good idea to get more stuff — so I can start testing it all! Thus far I’ve narrowed it down to these 20 products. But half the fun of reviewing is fulfilling your desires, so I would like you to vote on your top choices. Some of these are toys I already own, some I’d need to acquire, and at least one may be near-impossible to get, but like… RUMBLE SEAT, GUYS.

Should I change my slogan?

Should I change my slogan?

There are a lot of things about this blog that were decided on a whim. For instance, the domain name. I don’t like it because it’s hard to spell, but it was the only thing I could fit my pseudonym into. I’m really bad at naming things (except cats — I’m awesome at that). I’m also a bit afraid of change, as evidenced by my extremely outdated avatar. I was never a big fan of my slogan (“Conquering the world one sex toy at a time”), either. It was just something I tossed together. But I’ve kept it because I never thought of anything better. The other night, out of nowhere, a new idea for a slogan popped into my . . . read more

I'm sick of you, Facebook

I’m sick of you, Facebook

Facebook hates sex bloggers1. This is well-established. They’ve disabled my account twice now. The first time, they told me I needed to create a fan page if I wanted to be promoting myself. So I did. This time, when they reinstated my account, they had a new and exciting reason for my account being disabled.

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2010

Epiphora’s best and worst sex toys of 2010

[Check out my annual best/worst tag for newer lists!] I’m starting a tradition, peeps! Every year around this time, I’m gonna make a list of my top and bottom toys for the year, and give out entirely fake awards to various toys that have earned them. However, it’s not going to be about toys that were released that year (despite living on the internet and breathing sex toys, I can’t keep up with that stuff) — it’s going to be about all the toys I acquired/reviewed that year. In 2010, I raked in about 56 sex toys, pornos, sex accessories and other sundry items. These are my top ones — the ones I actually use past the testing period. Best sex . . . read more

Poll: What should I post next?

Poll: What should I post next?

People! Friends! I’m finally back! I am now with a different host and hopefully should have very little or no downtime to speak of from now on. I have quite a few posts/reviews in the works right now, so I thought I’d have a little poll to see what you guys are interested in reading the most. You may choose up to 3 of the options. Vote! Poll is now closed. Here are the results:

Holiday giving wishlist

This year, I thought I’d participate in the holiday wishlist meme. I’ve already been able to grant some of Ashley’s wishes, and am hoping to find others I can help out as well. I also have a list of stuff that I’d really love to have, but don’t have the money or means right now. Comment here if you create a list, and I will be sure to read it and attempt to help you out. If you help me with anything from my list, I will do my best to reciprocate. At the very least, I can send you some of my favorite holiday music! (It’s not boring crap, either. There are some sweet mash-ups.) Steps (truncated) Make a . . . read more

Where to go from here

Passing the one-year mark on this blog has led me to think a lot about what I should change around here. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing when I started Hey Epiphora in October of 2008, and I’ve just been kinda going with the flow since then. That flow has mostly included reviews, contests/giveaways, and miscellaneous banter. In my recent contest, I asked for suggestions. A couple readers suggested that I write about my personal life. I wasn’t sure — and still am not sure — how to feel about this. This blog has never been grounded in my personal life; certain posts detailing specific life events have cropped up over the months, but I haven’t had . . . read more

Vote for the Pure Wand winner!

Vote for the Pure Wand winner!

A month ago, I began a very hardcore contest called What would you do for a Pure Wand?. I decided to make the contest a somewhat complicated one, to befit the majesty that is the Njoy Pure Wand. I asked entrants to tell me what they would do for a Pure Wand, then I chose my six favorite entry ideas. After a grueling two week wait, four of the six entrants have followed through on their promises and submitted their entries for your voting pleasure. Entrants: you can certainly direct others to this poll and prod them to vote, but please don’t rally votes for yourself. If I see you swaying people to vote a certain way, I will have . . . read more
