Blog Love

Well, it's not Sunday, but another one doesn't roll around for a while, and you all deserve some lovely links. & Did you know that there is literally no regulation within the sex toy industry? Like, none at all? If you've ever seen me mention flame testing materials, I do it because you simply cannot trust that every package that says "100% silicone" really does contain 100% pure silicone.  Fucked up, right?  Thankfully, the brilliant minds of Dangerous Lilly and The Pinkness bring you... Dildology.org! & Epiphora and SheVibe have teamed up to give away a FunFactory Stronic Eins pulsator! What is it, you ...

OkCupid University: Etiquette 0500

Welcome to another installment of OkCupid University!  In case you missed it, you can find my intro to OkC post here. Many of the most common question I get asked about online dating revolve around etiquette.  A lot of myths still abound about male/female interaction, and since the majority of my friends are heterosexual, that's what I hear the most about.  I hate to be heteronormative, but a lot of this post is going to deal with being a woman looking to date a man, because that's what I have personal experience with.  If you don't fall into that category, I ...

My Thoughts on Dove’s “Real Beauty” Sketch Video

Have you seen Dove's latest Campaign for Real Beauty video?  If not, go take a look. First of all, I know there are 1,000,001 posts out there already about Dove's Real Beauty campaign, both positive and negative.  After watching their most recent video, I had a thought that I haven't seen addressed yet.

Ask Me Anything

This isn't part of a link-up or a meme, but rather something I'm hoping to make a semi-regular (read: every few months) feature.   I'm looking for your questions about: Toys and lubes. Personal health care (testing, best lube/lotion/potion for ___, bath & beauty). Porn, including porn and relationships. Relationships and dating. Mental health and sexuality.   I don't want to focus this on me.  I want this to be about you.  What do you want to know?  If you raise a big enough question, or if the answer would be too long, I'll likely turn it into a feature-length post.  And if no one asks questions, this is going to ...

Lazy… Monday?

Better late than never?  I had a crazy day yesterday, starting with an 11-5 shift at work, and ending with me passing out at midnight (even though I was supposed to pick the boyfriend from the airport at 3am).  Oops.  Don't worry, I'm taking him out tonight and plying him with tequila. And here are some things I hope you'll love this week: & Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point linked to this amazing recipe for banana soft serve.  I say "amazing recipe" when really it involves bananas in a food processor but really, who would have thought?  I want to mix up ...
