Reviews; LEGEND by ONE Condoms

Legend Condoms by OneWhat can I say? Legend Condoms from the makers of ONE  a company offering, strong & sensitive, well rounded designs that are part of the solution to so many problems around the word and the most notable the HIV/AIDS epidemic gripping much of the world affecting so many of us. It only takes a visit to their site to tune yourself up on the hard work they are doing. I highly encourage you to do so!

For this review I am focusing on one of the many faceted products they have, LEGEND! It’s not like I am a size queen, ok I am, but hey let’s get real even the overly endowed need protection, right? RIGHT? What the LEGEND latex condom offers is a roomier tip and reservoir. MMMMM! Ok I’ll stop! They are pre-lubricated with silicone which some may not like but this is easy to wash off, or not, up to you. They are definitely longer and wider than the

Reviews; Jopen E3 C-Ring

e3 EGO by JOPENThe c-ring from JOPEN that appeals to both man and woman that has it’s shape, design and function to thank for. Shaped like a pretty shell, what woman wouldn’t want this gently stimulating her oyster attached to a big old sea cucumber? Ok to much campy descriptive? At any rate this little beauty truly does perform. A premium silicone, rechargeable lithium battery fully ready in 3 hours, that’s whisper quiet when in action so it doesn’t disrupt the rhythm. It plugs into your USB port for charging on the go that boasts a security travel lock. With a velvety smooth finish it is a non-porous virtually seamless finish important for use on the male sensitive parts. The LED indicator light leads the way for on/off control and incremental speed control. Easy to clean, waterproof and hypoallergenic, the manufacturers boast of durability powered by a PowerBullet. It’s for use only with a water based lubricant for prolonged care and quality control, and is recommended to wash

Reviews; Rocks-Off Big-Boy

big boyOk boys, have I got one for you! The Big-Boy from the adventurous folks at Rocks-off. Bigger is better and this is a serious prostate vibrator for the “boys” who love their big toys. Made of 100% medical grade silicone it boasts prostate and perineum stimulation from the ridged pad that positions itself just slightly forward of your, AHEM,  butt-hole and behind your lovely sac of family jewels. Powered by the world famous removable RO-80mm Bullet, with 7 speeds it transmits pleasure throughout this puppy, to the prostate stimulating tip and down to the ridged perineum pad. It’s a hands free experience you can you lie with, sit, stand, walk or whatever, with or without a partner. It has a “grip like flexibility” easy to maneuver so it stays put once in place. The size boasts a filling 120 by 115 by 44 mm ball and 15cm girth for some truly full action! It comes with a battery, but if you need a new one just head out and puck yourself up a new “N” style power source. Easy to wash, easy to store. Even the women can use it! Have a seat anyone?

 

Reviews; Blossom Organics

blossom organicsBilled as a “Natural Moisturizing Lubricant” from the makers at Blossom Organics it truly is a product made for the discerning female user. I can honestly say I love this, and given my situation in life that speaks VOLUMES! Starting with the packaging you have a pretty purple/lavender on white box with a tube inside that translates the same appearance. It is simple and basic, something I like when it comes to lubricant presentation. When you squeeze it from the tube you’re met with a clear ,colourless, odourless lotion, that borders on a liquid-like consistency for easy application, that stays put. It is also palatable, and since I like to “taste” I like the fact that I am not met with some foul tasting, over sugared concoction messing with my tastebuds! I want to taste you not the lotion! It’s PH balanced to mimic the natural flora of a woman and formulated in a water and aloe vera base free of parabens, and glycerin. Not only that, it is also free of petroleum, silicones, alcohol, hormones, artificial fragrances, dyes or flavourings. Made with organic ingredients it is compatible with latex and polyisoprene condoms and gentle enough for daily use of dryness. A little dab will do you, but don’t be shy, to re-apply, if required!

Ingredients; Organic aloe barbadensis leaf extract, sorbitol, hydroxyethylcellulose, allantoin, lactic acid, tocopherol (vitamin E), potassium sorbate, organic stevia rebaudiana extract, hyaluronic acid, organic paeonia albiflora (peony) root extract, organic passiflora incarnate flower extract.

Reviews; Silicone Explorers

anal explorer setCute and almost cuddly in pretty pastel colours! Now who wouldn’t want a set of these from the folks at The Sinclair Institute? These little cuties fit onto the tip of your finger for easy control and easy insertion. Made of 100% medical grade silicone they are phthalate free, non-porous and ultra hygienic. They are easy to clean with mild soap and water, boiled, or placed on the top rack of your dishwasher; although the 2 latter options are a little aggressive in my opinion as a method of cleaning. For a completely different approach serve hot, heated under hot water, or chilled over ice for intensive sensory enhancement. These babies are ideal for the beginner players wishing to explore the backdoor entry for a new kind of intimacy. Don’t let the size fool you, although they are petite, first time adventurers may not enjoy the road ahead, so if this is uncharted territory take your time and explore every nook and cranny. A word of caution as with most silicone aids, use water based lubricants to prolong the life of your sweet little babies. They are just so cute you can’t afford to pass them up!

Tidbits; Park Sex

Park StatuePeriodically I go for long walks with a coffee or tea to people watch and take in the beauty this fair city I live in has to offer. I mean who wouldn’t, Vancouver is AMAZING! Anyway after awhile I found myself sitting on the bench in the park watching the water and the people walk by, and I began to think about what all these people of all ages, all walks of life, do in their sex lives. Are they kinky, vanilla, missionary, like it where the sun don’t shine, threesomes, group action, do they still have sex? Wander, as my mind is want to do, it suddenly popped into my head the answer to a random question that was asked by one of the boys at the cocktail lounge I frequent.

Tidbits; Opinion: Focus on ‘high-risk lifestyle’ shifts blame from violent perpetrators to their victims

red lips

Here is an opinion article courtesy of the folks at Living in Community by Tricia barnes; a non-profit I am working with here in Vancouver on issues of sex work. This article details the recent murder of two sex workers found murdered in New Westminster and the continued stigmas that the media and other organizations continually place on one of the oldest professions. Good job ladies!

“In separate incidents on Aug. 12 and Aug. 25, two women were found dead in their apartments in the same New Westminster building. Both women were believed to have worked as escorts

Tidbits; The Intersex!

xxy1After watching a lovely video by one of my fave bands, Goldfrapp, Annabel. I was brought to tears, watching and listening to the lyrics so eloquently written by that dynamic duo. It struck so many chords and given what is in the news these days regarding the issue, I wanted to express that on some of the sites I “was” on.

I say “was on” since I am no longer as I came up against cowards not wishing to address anything to do with it and shut me down. Yes I get your “terms of service” but when they seriously conflict with your “mission” statement well WTF! No room for discussion, hear me out, change a few policies? I think that most western

Reviews; Lelo Luna Beads Noir

Lelo Luna Beads NoirLelo’s take on the world popular “Ben Wa balls“. Sleek and sophisticated these are the black version of the original Luna Beads with two obvious differences, the colour, and the two sets of balls in 28 and 37 gram balls. The Noir version comes with the 37 gram balls of a 29 mm diameter for easy insertion and comfortable wear for daily use, during foreplay, and even penetration for the adventurous. I love that the “bra” to support the balls is medical grade silicone and the balls, an ABS phthalate free plastic. The balls are counter weighted allowing for muscle contraction without the wearer even aware it is stimulating the muscles of the pelvic floor. Remember they are easy to wear whenever you want, and easy to clean. Simply pop the balls out of the bra holder and wash with mild soap and water. My only thought is that they could have included more or possibly heavier balls. Maybe I am speaking to soon? Separately, or the lovers kit with blindfolds and a lovely flogger! Be Daring!

Tidbits; Sextoys or Therapeutical Aids?

lilsisjul11-3How did these lovely devices we have come to cherish so much come to be called “sextoys”? To be honest I am not to sure since I can’t seem to find the information, but I am sure it has some funky origins within the latin language.

To start Wikipedia defines it as such;

A sex toy is an object or device that is primarily used to facilitate human sexual pleasure, such as a dildo or vibrator. Many popular sex toys are designed to resemble human genitals and may be vibrating or non-vibrating. (more…)
