Six Questions For The Sex Shop Newbie: A Guide to Your First Time Buying Sex Toys

Last week marks my final week slinging dils – after nearly two years in the biz I’ve decided to take a step back from my day jobs to focus on the freelance work that brings me joy.1 Working retail is always an adventure, but sex toy retail is unique. Every day I would meet customers who have “never been in a place like this before” and are confronting any combination of nervousness, shame, or just …

Review: The Swan Wand

Swan Wand

It’s not often a new vibrator catches my eye the way the Swan Wand did. Plenty of wands boast “Magic Wand level vibrations”, and quite a few of them even manage it, but I already I already have a Magic Wand Rechargable, so all the other similar wands seem redundant.1 What stood out to me about the Swan Wand wasn’t the vibrations, it was the insertable, G-Spot friendly shape, and the 2.5″ diameter on the …

The Nipple Paradox

“Yea, I never really bother to think about why I’m into what I am, all that really matters is that I’m hungry, and I need to find someone who wants to make a sandwich.” Once upon a time, a newbie dominant said those words to me while I was in the middle of one of my (frequent) explorations into why my kinks appeal to me the way they do. I furrowed my eyebrows thoughtfully “I… …

Review: Maia Wand

Maia Wand Review

I had a dream about this wand. I dreamed that someone recommended that I use it upside down and backwards, and when I tried it I thought “Wow! This isn’t half bad!” Dream me is an idiot. And let me be clear, I wasn’t dreaming about the Maia Wand because I was overcome with excitement to try it, in fact, it was quite the opposite. I was dreading wasting a perfectly good masturbation session on …

What Couples Toys Taught Me About Sex Positivity

Couple's Toys

Here’s the thing about working in a sex shop, you are asked the exact same questions, all day, every day. Here’s the thing about being asked the exact same questions, all day, every day, you get pretty damn good at answering them. Unfortunately, one of the most common questions I am asked is still one of the hardest for me to answer. Not because it’s actually a difficult question, but because it requires me to …

A Pup and Their Pure Plug

Pure Plug and New Bottoming Book

The first time my Sir punished me was also the first time I wore the Njoy Pure Plug out of the house. In the past I’d worn other plugs in public, mostly the Bootie, occasionally the Tantus Juice, but every time I tried my large Pure Plug it just felt, well, large. It was so substantial and heavy that the thought of wearing it for any length of time was intimidating. It was two days …

Review: Vixen Maverick

I’m bad at favorites. I don’t have a favorite movie, and if I have to decide on a birthday dinner I’m suddenly reminded of every vaguely delicious thing I’ve ever eaten. When people ask me who “my” Doctor is, the answer is whichever one I’ve watched most recently, and my favorite Pokemon is an entire damn team.1 However, I can confidently say: the Maverick is my favorite dildo. I know I’ve said this before, but to be …

5 Surefire Ways to Incur the Wrath of the BlogSquad

Annoyed Bex

I have never felt more at home than I have with the Blogsquad. They are my chosen family and my best friends and the some of the raddest revolutionaries I know- but sometimes, sex toy companies seem to want to quickly and easily enrage as many influencers in a community as possible. Today, I’ve partnered with EdenFantasys to teach you how to do just that. "As a group we are loud, we make shit happen, we don't …

Review: L’amourose Prism VII

Review: Hole Punch Fluke

Hole Punch Fluke

Sometimes I can tell you right away how I feel about a toy. Right out of the box1 I’m either writing love sonnets or brainstorming the most effective ways to destroy it for all eternity. Other times I am decidedly indifferent about a product, I couldn’t care less if it fell onto my clit or into a volcano, both instances would be met with a resounding “meh”. It’s rare that a product oscillates between these …
