Gee Slim propped up on a candle

Review: Vedo Gee Slim

I’ve been spending more time reviewing toys under $50. I had hoped the Vedo Gee Slim would be a good beginner’s G-spot vibrator. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend it and I don’t have a comparably-priced toy to point you towards. It just doesn’t have it where it counts. Basic Stats The […]


Review: Sola Cue

In the sex toy landscape, a lot of vibrators look alike – colorful, with a predictable shape, promises of strong or rumbly vibrations on the box. Many consumers pick out a toy on looks and price, find it has buzzy vibrations or user-unfriendly features, and conclude vibrators are not for […]

Stronic Drei

Review: Fun Factory Stronic Drei

So far in my sex blogging career, I’ve been pretty good at identifying toys I know I’ll like. I’ll still read reviews on toys beforehand. This often either confirms that I’ll love the toy, or will tell me something that I didn’t know about it that makes me reevaluate my […]


Screaming O: Violators of Privacy and Masters of Spin 2

The “Body Safe” panel at Woodhull went wrong in so, so many ways. So much so, that I’m having to write this post instead of a general recap.  I’m literally shaking as I write this. I’m so angry, and so scared. Lawyers are getting involved. I worry that a vindictive […]


Review: Satisfyer Pro 2 (Next Generation vs. Original)

I was offered two models of the Satisfyer Pro 2 to test. The “original” model was actually the second release of the Satisfyer Pro 2, but since the very first model is now obsolete, I’ll be referring to it as the Original. It was supplied by the manufacturer. I was […]

  This year Carrie and I will be making our third trek to Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit (SFS or Woodhull, for short). We thought it would be helpful to write about what to expect and some conference tips for first-timers. This post is specifically geared towards SFS newbies, but some […]


Confession: The Never-Ending Period

This post contains frank talk of menstruation. I’m also going to talk about the mental health effects of hormonal birth control, which for me included suicidal thoughts and self harm. If that bothers or upsets you in any way, feel free to skip this post! Why not read a review […]


Review: Blush Noje W3 Mini Wand

The Blush Noje W3 Mini Wand advertises deep rumbly vibrations. For the most part, they’re right, but that comes with some major caveats. Basic Stats The Blush Noje W3 is tiny. I knew it would be small, but this is itty bitty. It’s a wand in shape only – a […]


Le Wand

Review: Le Wand

What do you get when you take a Magic Wand Rechargeable body, a Doxy Die Cast head, and the French word for “the”? Le Wand. When the Le Wand showed up, Oldest said, “You know what Le Wand reminds me of? The Le Spatula, from Spongebob, in that episode he […]
