💸 Hint: consult my Sales & Deals page to get the best price on your sex toy purchases! If you ask me, sex toys are way better gifts than socks or body wash. Now I may be biased, considering I own hundreds of them and have been testing them and reviewing them for many years, but you know. The point is, I have OPINIONS about things that go on vulvas and in vaginas and butts, and even sometimes over penises. Today, I was on Sex Out Loud Radio telling the universe all about my top sex toy gift ideas — plus my tips for picking out a sex toy for someone else. As an accompaniment, here’s the written version — along with . . . read more
Sportsheets makes all kinds of stuff: positioning straps, light BDSM products, beginner’s harnesses, and even a few silicone dildos. On the whole, their stuff is kinda chintzy, but their Under the Bed Restraint System is awesome.
For a set of restraints, the Sportsheets Under the Bed Restraint System seems to make a dangerous declaration: fuck bedposts. Having never tried restraints until now, and lacking bedposts, I have no problem with this statement.

Obviously, this is not the best memory to be replaying whenever you’re strapping on a dildo. But replay it does, as I adjust one, two, three, four straps, two around my legs and one around my waist (it fits up to 60″ hips).

I don’t want to lead you on, so straight up: Ride the Vibe doesn’t work. I know. It has a cool name. It sounds like it will turn you into an orgasm repairman. And kudos to Sportsheets for developing something seemingly innovative. But really, it just doesn’t work. First: putting it on. There’s no buckle, so my boyfriend had to climb off the bed, step into the circle of the belt, and pull it up his body. He adjusted the waist by pulling at the strap. There was a lot of strap left over, which then dangled at his side like a weirdly-placed tail. Suffice to say, this could fit nearly any waist (altogether, I measured 74 inches of strap). . . . read more
