Water Dancer Pocket Massager

Tuesday July 29, 2014
In my opinion, if a clitoral vibrator is going to be ‘one-note’ (by that I mean, one speed), it had better be pretty good. There are so many small vibrators on the market that are waterproof and portable enough for travel purposes that one sold specifically with those criteria in mind needs some extra selling points. 

Real People, Real Life, Real Sex: Matt and Khym Better Than Ever

Friday March 14, 2014
Comstick Films presents a series of DVDs that are basically porn documentaries. The films feature real couples talking about their lives together and footage of them having real sex. Matt and Khym are in their 30s and at the time this was filmed, had been together for almost 20 years. In an interview (with the interviewer off-camera and silent) they talk about how they met and got together. The dialogue is very genuine and conversational, and Matt and Khym come across as both very likeably people. I especially was drawn to how empowered Khym was – she was younger and much less experienced then Matt when they got together, but she became a very strong and passionate woman. More than just likeable, Matt and Khym are an inspiration. Early on in their marriage they had a lot of things to deal with that could have very well broken up other couples – in particular, the revolving door of friends and family members who stayed with them and who they had to look after.

When it comes to vibrators, bigger does not necessarily mean better. Alternately, smaller does not have to mean less powerful. Take the bullet, for instance: A small, basic kind of vibrator. Most only have one speed and are quite small.

The Lube Lowdown: Swiss Navy Creates a Sea of Pleasure

Friday January 3, 2014

Using lubricant has only recently become part of my sexual vocabulary. I am going to admit that it never really occurred to me to use it. I always assumed that lubricant was for women who had trouble lubricating naturally.

How very, very wrong I was. Lubricant makes everything go more smoothly (pun definitely intended). Even with proper natural lubrication, using some water-based lubricant makes sex more comfortable for the partners involved. Even in solo sex, lubricant helps, particularly with toys.

Revel Body Review

Thursday October 31, 2013
The Revel is a quality toy that could be great for some people but not everyone for sure. The materials and USB charging dock are nice. I have not tested the waterproof claim but it seems it would be. An odd part about the toy that I did not see on any of the IndieGoGo material is how the two portions must connect. The internal "sonic" vibrating portion is separate from the rest of the toy and it must have lubricant between them to keep it functioning properly. It came with Vaseline already applied which I did not want on the toy so I washed it several times to get it off. I used a water-based lube with the toy and it makes a ton of squishing, gushing, air and lube noises. Normally the noises that toys make don't bother me but this was a bit much. The motor is quiet though. I kept worrying that maybe it was squishing all the lube out and stopping to reapply more that it didn't actually need. I assume it makes less noise with Vaseline but I will not try it that way since Vaseline breaks down condoms and is so hard to clean up.
