This product was a disappointment. After removing my possible personal bias from the equation, and assuming the strap had not broken, since Lovehoney would have sent me a replacement, the Fifty Shades of Grey Keep Still Over the Bed Cross Set was unwieldy to set up, impossible to adjust (for a full-size bed), and a disaster to store away. I think Lovehoney has far better options for restraining your partners.
I’m trying something new: weekly updates of all my half-baked thoughts/feels throughout the week served up to you stream-of-consciousness style. Let’s see how this goes, shall we? This week: A mini BlogSquad weekend, new sex toys (and pegging), the upcoming Sex Down South conference, and my favorite podcasts!
Being chronically ill is also one of my biggest motivators for becoming a sex blogger (my other reasons were a love of sex and obsession with sex toys!) Even before vulva pain was an issue for me, I had so many questions from problems I would run into that not even google had good answers to—and I realized that I couldn’t possibly be the only person looking for answers. I love sex, but I’m also a person living with chronic illness, and it’s had an enormous impact on my sex life—so I’m going to keep talking about it so hopefully the next time someone goes looking for answers they’ll be able to find them.
As a prostate toy, the Don falls short… literally. The bulb meant for insertion just isn’t long enough to reach the prostate. Still, I really liked the Don by Doxy. It has great, and quiet, rumbly vibrations making it a great purchase for penis-owners who like vibrations on the head or shaft of their penis, those who likes strong clitoral stimulation, and anyone who needs a strong but quiet vibrator.
Being at Woodhull’s #SFS16 made me feel comfortable, like I belonged, and confirmed how right being part of the sex-positive community felt to me—a community of people who are inclusive, understanding, accepting, and non-judgmental. I’m not sure who wouldn’t want to be a part of that. I felt strangely at peace being at Woodhull, as and a very high-strung person who has no idea what relaxing is, that’s a huge thing for me.
What are sex-positive doctors or therapists? They are medical professionals who make it a point to be well-educated about sexual health and aim to provide their patients with accurate, helpful, and non-judgmental information. They consider sex to be a healthy part of life that should be enjoyed, and they’ll be able to discuss it with you without awkwardness or being judgmental about your lifestyle, sexual practices, or preferences.

There are many causes of vulva pain. I can tell you that having any kind of vulva pain truly sucks— there’s really no good way to spin it to make it sound like a good thing—but if you are well-informed, advocate for yourself, and find the right doctor, things can get better.
Forget the clever opening, I’m just going to be straight forward; the Pleasure Works First Mate Silicone Dildo is one of my favorite dildos I have ever tried. I didn’t have particularly high hopes because until the First Mate I’ve never found a dildo I loved, and yet here I am gushing (pun intended) about the First Mate.
