Shibari Halo Wand

Honestly this is kind of a tough review to write because I have mixed feelings about the Shibari Halo Wand. By “mixed” I mean mostly positive, but also kind of meh sometimes. Like, when I first got it I loved it. But after using it a few times I realized the Halo is inconsistent for me. Most of the time I have great orgasms and I write things like “this fucking rules!” in my review notes, and other times the strong vibration feels itchy and numbing and doesn’t get me off. I think my problem is that the vibration is rumbly yet […]

Best Women’s Erotica 2014

Well this review has been in the works for a while… Cleis Press publishes several annual anthologies and I’ve yet to review one of those from last year: Best Women’s Erotica 2014. It is edited by Violet Blue, who I am already familiar with and adore. I was excited to read this book because of my fondness for Blue and Cleis Press, and it also got +2 points for having a cat on the cover. Browsing through the table of contents I noticed there are some well-known authors whose names I wasn’t surprised to see (and almost expected, actually), like Alison Tyler […]

Exotic-Erotics Phoenix

Well, before I even start this review, I need to address something: We haven’t posted anything in months. We’ve been neglecting the blog. Liam and I have been super busy with our new jobs as well as buying and moving into a new house, and I have been dealing with chronic pain and migraines that make me not want to do anything, you know, including writing posts about dildos and stuff. But in the last few months we’ve been enjoying some amazing toys, including the Phoenix from Exotic-Erotics. For a long time I was pretty uninterested in fantasy type toys […]

Sudden Sex by Alison Tyler

“Sudden Sex,” an anthology edited by Alison Tyler, is all about spontaneity, as you may have deduced from the title. The stories include established couples, strangers, couples pretending to be strangers, some threesomes, and even a few about masturbation. I love Alison Tyler, which is why I volunteered to review this book for her. But having high expectations for it led to a bit of disappointment to be honest. There are some amazingly hot stories included (Tyler’s own “Booked,” “Tripartite” by Georgia E. Jones, “Stopover” by A. D. R. Forte, “Sweet and Spicy” and “Triptych” by Kat Watson, “The Exorcism” […]

Evolved Bet on Black

The Bet on Black vibrator is part of Evolved’s “Roulette” line. The main thing these toys have in common is a wheel that controls the vibration. That feature, plus the spirally, twisty texture of the Bet on Black looked enticing. The black and red color combo is appealing too, a refreshing difference from the shades of pink you’re typically stuck with. The wheel, which is supposed to make it a “true multispeed” vibrator (according to the packaging), is a neat idea but doesn’t work as well as I had hoped. If there was a large range of speeds possible for […]
