WW: Shoes You Could Skate In

Though I wasn’t planning to expand my shoe collection, I couldn’t resist buying these gorgeous things at the outlet mall the other day. I’m a hockey player, but I still love that these lace up like figure skates! They’re also amazingly comfortable.

TMI Tuesday 7/19

This week’s TMI Tuesday theme is Regret. I have a bit of an interesting stance on regret, illustrated by the image above and explained a bit more in the last question for this week. Enjoy!

1. What was the last thing you regret buying?

Hmm. Nothing comes to mind recently because I’ve been trying really hard to only buy things that I need (or really want and have nothing similar to). My biggest shopping regret though is my N64. It was the first thing I bought with all my own money and I never really used it. Those were the days when I was too jumpy/frightened to play Zelda and I hated the blocky graphics anyway.

2. What was the last sex toy you regret buying?

I really wish I hadn’t bought the Lelo Gigi. It was my first EF order and the most I’d ever spent on a sex toy, but the reviews said it was outstanding other than the issue with the handle being too short. Unfortunately Gigi is most comfortable as a clitoral vibe and I really wish I had bought the Ella first since I actually get proper G-spot stimulation out of it.

3. Briefly describe a time that you had sex, and you should not have. Why did you do it?

About a month before school ended, we had a day where M was really horny and I wasn’t really feeling like having sex. He was pushing me more than usual and I didn’t feel like fighting about it, so I rolled over as it were and just let things happen. I ended up crying almost the whole time and trying to make sure he didn’t notice, and when it was all over and I told him how horrible things were….he said he didn’t enjoy it anyway because I wasn’t having a good time. x_x;;

4. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?

Hard to say. I expect that being 25-30 will be a good age and that I might choose that, but I don’t exactly know yet. Either that or being like, 7, when life is full of naivety. Though, being 7, the smallest things make your life feel like it isn’t worth living and not having grown up to know any better, that could be pretty shit.

5. A good friend’s significant other flirts with you; would you tell your good friend?

If they asked, I would tell them the truth. Otherwise I’d tell their SO to get out of my face and be faithful and then threaten to tell my friend if they pulled that stunt ever again.

6. What is your greatest professional regret? For example: Promotions you did not accept; Internship opportunities you did not pursue; Inventions/ideas you did not share.

A colleague a few years ago suggested that I should apply for a training intern position at my school, especially if I wanted to continue in the field. I was far too nervous and under confident and so I decided not to apply. Looking back, it would have been a great experience especially since I ended up choosing this field as a career.

Bonus: What is your biggest regret?

Talking about regrets is always hard for me, especially when it comes to this question. There are a lot of things in life I regret but without them, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I often think my biggest regret was my entire relationship with my ex. I spent a year being head-over-heels for him, another two years dating him, and another year trying to pick up the pieces when my entire life was shattered. However, I learned a lot of important lessons along the way and I grew to know myself and my needs in a way I never did before that. I also have a great story to tell about how I found love, got engaged, and got screwed over by the biggest asshole of all time.

Review: The Dark Vamp

This past year, as many of you know, I participated in Relay for Life. RFL is a 24-hour event held in local communities to raise money for the American Cancer Society and represents the ongoing battle of cancer patients, survivors, and their families. My team raised over a thousand dollars for ACS this year and I was damn proud of that fact. I was even more excited when I discovered that Tantus had formed a team; not only that, but they were selling a special edition of the Vamp dildo to raise money for RFL.

This beautiful special-edition dildo is a deep, iridescent purple version of that thing often known as the “Twilight Dildo“. The original Vamp is one of a kind, a pearly white dong that sparkles in the sunlight. Sparkly is great, but I’ve never been a fan of white and thinking of Edward just reminds me of my ex-boyfriend. Not really what I want in a dildo. When I saw the Dark Vamp, however, I knew I had to have it.

One reason it took me so long to pick up the Dark Vamp was its size. At 1.5″ diameter, the Dark Vamp is by far the girthiest dildo I’ve inserted to date. I was hoping that the large size would serve as a fun way to make intercourse more comfortable for myself in the long run. I also liked the look of the Dark Vamp – it’s smooth, medical grade silicone with a beautiful pronounced head. Even with the knowledge that the head would likely catch on my pubic bone, I needed the Dark Vamp in my collection.

This dildo arrived in Tantus’s newest packaging, a clear plastic bag closed by a stapled cardboard tag at the top. While the packaging isn’t the most stunning on the market, I do appreciate Tantus’s efforts to make their products more environmentally friendly by using way less packaging. For those whom discreetness is an issue, hide your dildo once it arrives. You can see the whole thing through the package. Even the shipping box has a huge label – SEX TOY INSIDE. Just kidding. Tantus ships all of its toys in unmarked boxes so no one will know what’s inside unless you ask!

After fawning over my Dark Vamp in its package for a few days, I finally got to open and try it out. Unfortunately, I discovered that mine contained a defect where the silicone wasn’t finished off properly in one area. It was peeling and looked like someone had stuck a small knife straight into my precious dildo. Never fear! I contacted Jenn over Twitter and she immediately sent me a new one. How cool is that? She even gave me more stickers after providing me with a stockpile in the first package. My new dildo? Just as beautiful and totally flawless.

My first time using the Dark Vamp, it took me an awfully long time warming up to get it in. It took some porn, a small vibrator, and about half an hour to insert more than an inch or two the first time. I already knew the shape of the Vamp was going to be tricky on my pelvic bone, and as I reached that threshold the pain set in. I waited a few more minutes, lubed up, and tried again. When I finally got the Vamp in, I chose not to thrust but instead to wiggle the base back and forth. It was a pleasant sensation paired with a vibrator on my clit and I didn’t have to worry about that pesky pelvic bone angle for a little while. After a brilliant orgasm, I braved the ‘pop’ of pulling the dildo back out, past that pelvic junction. It was a bit painful, but not impossible.

Since that first time, things have gotten easier. The Dark Vamp is still girthy but gives me a wonderful full feeling when I finally get it in. My partner got to help me play with it last time and I enjoyed every moment. I even got to try the Dark Vamp in my SpareParts harness and I convinced M to let me thrust into his mouth. Let me tell you, I had a blast.

When it comes to cleaning the Dark Vamp, you can use soap and water, throw it in the dishwasher, or boil it. Boiling is the best choice if you’re going to be sharing this toy, as the silicone can be completely disinfected. Be sure to store Tantus dildos in a plastic bag of some kind because they do pick up lint very easily. When you’re ready to use it again, just give it a quick rinse under the tap.

Unfortunately the Dark Vamp is a limited edition product – feel free to contact @Tantus_Jenn and find out if there are any left! If not, perhaps you can convince them to make more next year. If you like white and sparkly, head on over and grab a Vamp for yourself or for a vampire-loving friend. It’s got just the right amount of bite.

Review: 52 Sex Position Cards

Since losing my virginity ((Everyone has their own definition, I consider my own virginity to be PIV sex)) I’ve been rather interested in trying out various sexual positions. Many things such as missionary don’t work well for M and I due to my large thighs and the fact that he’s over a foot taller than me. When the 52 Sex Position Cards by Avelli popped up as a Babeland review option, I knew I wanted to get them.

These 52 cards are great fun, whether you choose one every week or you grab a random one every day. They come in a cute box that has an outer sheath and an open-top card holder within. The sheath features a flesh-and-blood heterosexual couple tangled within one another with the title “52 Sex Positions Flash Cards: ignite a year’s worth of mind-blowing sex!” nicely covering the man’s ass. On the flip side is a short description of the set alone with an example of what the cards look like. I wish the card holder inside was made of plastic though, because the folded-cardboard edges always cause a few cards to get stuck in the bottom. You have to struggle to pry them out.

Each card features a position demonstrated by a nicely-drawn man and woman. They aren’t stick figures but the images do not show genetalia and the woman’s breasts do not show nipples either. The position is titled and instructions are given for Him and Her. There is also a how to demonstrating if the position is best for thrusting, rocking, etc. Finally in the top left corner, each position has a difficulty rating from one to five stars.

M and I enjoyed the variety of cards in this package, but as with any collection of positions, they will not all be feasible for any given couple. We were unable to do the couple of positions that involved us facing each other on our sides, but other couples told us they had no trouble with these positions. Some of these also take a little bit of practice and awkward shuffling, especially since some of the drawings only show one leg for the man and woman – the leg facing the viewer. It can sometimes be very confusing where your other leg is supposed to go.

One hilarious card, pointed out by a few other bloggers as well, is a bucket of fail. Can you see the problem? Apparently this couple had someone else’s heads spliced onto their bodies.

Overall, I would recommend these cards to anyone! They’re fun to flip through and you and your partner can make a game of trying out the different positions. These would also make a cute addition to a gift basket for a newlywed couple or a couple who has just moved in with each other, etc. I do wish they would make a set of cards each for lesbian and gay couples or a deck that features positions for all three.

You can get these cute and affordable cards at Babeland for only $9!

No WW This Week

Sorry folks, but I’ve got no Wanton Wednesday post for you this week. Honestly, I’m just feeling really….meh. Blah. Blurrrh. It’s like the little sexual energy I usually have blasted off into space or something. I don’t feel sexy, I can’t be turned on by anything and I feel like everything hurts. My head, my back, my neck. I’m not sleeping well either.

Hopefully I’ll be feeling better by this time next week. For now, I’d love to hear your thoughts about my blog recently. What do you like? What would you change? Would you suggest it to your friends?

Thanks everyone, for your loving support. It means a lot to me.
