Early to Bed

Early to Bed is an adorable Chicago sex shop run by one of the sweetest (and most hilarious) people I’ve met in the industry. They go the extra mile with their webstore, taking their own product photos and writing their own pros/cons for each toy.

Announcing the Amplified Voices Sex Blogger Scholarship!

Announcing the Amplified Voices Sex Blogger Scholarship!

Hi! Me again! Today I am using exclamation points a lot because I’m so excited to announce this thing! Remember how I’m teaching an online sex blogging class this fall with my good friend JoEllen Notte? WELL, thanks to several amazing companies, we are offering six individual scholarships to the class, which will be held online from September 1st through October 20th. Yes, six, thanks to the generosity of Early to Bed, Fuze, We-Vibe, Dame, Crystal Delights, and OhMiBod. Our aim with this scholarship is to amplify the voices of people who have, in the past, been under-represented in sex blogging. We want to combat the notion that sex blogging is only accessible to white, affluent, able-bodied cis people. The scholarship is open to all, but priority will . . . read more

Wow. I’m about 99% certain my 4-year blogiversary giveaway was the most successful giveaway in the history of this blog.

I’ve already implemented one of the ideas — a suggestion box where you can drop your thoughts without even giving your name. Hopefully it will be useful when you have something embarrassing you want to tell me? Or something? Without further ado, here are the lucky winners of the 15 toys in my giveaway!

So I’m pretty sure my neon and tie dye VixSkin giveaway has been my most successful giveaway to date. AND WHY WOULDN’T IT BE? WHO WOULDN’T WANT NEON AND TIE DYE DILDOS? Take notice, world.

Mini sex toy doodads!

Mini sex toy doodads!

[Check out my April Fool’s Day review of my tiny dildos!] I think I can call this a legit collection now. Back in April, after jealously ogling everyone’s photos of the mini Tantus dildos at Momentum Con, the lovely Jenna sent me a few in various colors. They are mini Goliaths, and I adore them. I set them up on my shelf all in a row, and threw that ridic PicoBong die up there, too, because what else was I gonna do with it? Then when I saw Searah at Early to Bed talking about Fleshlight samples and Vixen Creations penises the other day, I saw an opportunity to expand my collection of weird tiny sex toy thing-a-majigs. I made an order for some Sliquid Sea . . . read more

Blogiversary giveaway: celebrating 200 reviews with 600 bucks!

Blogiversary giveaway: celebrating 200 reviews with 600 bucks!

Oh snap, my friends! This week is my 3-year blogging anniversary, and I’ve hit 200 reviews written! I wrote 35 reviews off-site before I began this blog, and this blog is the home for the other 165 reviews. I’ve been reviewing for 4 years, which is the equivalent of one review about every 7 days. Over time, I have learned to not say stupid shit in my reviews, and I’ve become increasingly more snobby discerning. To mark this dual momentous occasion, I asked several awesome sex toy companies to help me give away an epic ton of gift cards. Behold, the bounty I have rounded up for all y’all: SheVibe donated four $50 gift cards! Babeland donated one $50 gift card! MyPleasure donated one $50 gift card and . . . read more

Blogiversary blowout: oodles of sex toys

Blogiversary blowout: oodles of sex toys

Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of this here blog, so of course, I wanted to give out some presents! I was inspired by other blogiversary contests which feature a bunch of prizes and thus many winners. I have seven great prizes here to give away to seven lucky winners! I will choose most of the winners by random draw, and let each winner pick from the available toys. Since there are about a hundred really great toys I’d love to give away, I had to narrow the scope a little bit. I decided to play with the theme of realizations. So all of these prizes are toys/porn I have tried/seen and absolutely loved, for one reason or another. Check out . . . read more
