CatalystCon East, 2013

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I spent Thursday through Sunday in Arlington, VA, and Washington, DC, for CatalystCon. So, what is CatalystCon? CatalystCon is an awesome conference held on the East and West coasts for sex educators of all kinds. I saw everyone from Tristan Taormino to college freshmen, and everyone was there to talk about sexual health, education, and pleasure. If you're interested, you should see if you can make it to CCon West, or consider volunteering for CCon East next year. (As a volunteer, my conference pass was free.) Before ...

I’m Actually Having a Lazy Sunday

It's probably because the world is ending with Frankenstorm.  I'm actually having a Lazy Sunday.  I was given a random Sunday off, and I desperately needed it.  This week kicked my ass, and ended with Steve and me (dressed as Prince and a Playboy Bunny) singing karaoke at a local bar ("Darling Nikki" and "Oops... I Did It Again", if you were wondering). & Braiding! For SHORT HAIR! I can have some fun too, bitch! & If you've been thinking about blogging, if you're new to blogging, or if you feel like there's still something you can learn (hint: there is, this is you), you should check ...

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 ...

Mini Wish List: Toys Edition

By 4 , , , , Permalink 0

I really want to know: What's on your wishlist? Since starting my job at Adam & Eve Pittsburgh, I've added a fair few items to my personal arsenal of all things fun: the Lelo Mia, Sportsheets Cuffs and Tethers, the Sportsheets Doggie Style Strap, the WeVibe II, a decent non-vibing cockring, Lelo Ella...  You get the point. But still, it's like a search for the Holy Grail, and I have to expand my collection.  I'm not a voracious clothes shopper.  I still have the same iPod I've had since my 17th birthday (much love to the 2nd gen Nanos).  But if there's one ...

Lazy Monsoon Sunday

By 0 , , , , Permalink 0

It's been another working Sunday in the Marvelous Darling household.  For me, anyway - boyfriend's been home, rats have all been home (that's right - all - more on that soon).  It was a super slow day at the shop, but I did get to work with a coworker I don't see much so catching up was lots of fun! Without further ado... & I know this will shock you, but Sarah Von of Yes & Yes wrote another post about travel.  (If you don't know Sarah, shame on you.  But she travels like a BAMF.) & Kira of Her New Leaf made a beautiful freebie wallpaper ...
