Classy Glassy ~ Sasha Grey Glass Butt Plug

Wow, it's good to be back!  Apologies for the unannounced holiday, my internet has been rather naughty and was not quite so keen to submit to my glowering as other bratty types.  But I am back, and have a rather luverly item to talk about: the Doc Johnson Sasha Grey Glass Butt Plug in medium!

Swanky, no?  When Lovehoney first got this range in, I was dying to pick one up, but being the cash-strapped Babe that I am, I had to sit in lusty silence until I was lucky enough to have one wing its way to my doorstep.

Randy Reading #5: Carrie's Story

And we're back, after a rather crazy few weeks.  It has been a while since I wrote about an erotic book, and this is one I found really enjoyable.  From the intelligent-sexy people at Cleiss Press, Carrie's Story is a modern take on the classic Story of O written by Molly Weatherfield.  She writes herself about how she struggled to harmonise her love of the de Sade style pornography she'd enjoyed in her youth with the Sex Wars era feminism developing around her.  I've seen it a lot myself in people new to the fetish scene, women especially, feeling guilty for a presumed betrayal of their gender by letting a man control them, and while I find it quite easy to resolve such inner conflict thanks to way too much time spent reading philosophical texts dealing with the master and slave dynamic - in a non-sexual context, but it frequently applies - it's something that does rear its head often, and I'm glad to have been able to read something dealing with this in such a positive light, as well as providing a believable modern portrayal of the 25-7 lifestyle.

For The Love of Spanking

Before I return to regularly scheduled reviewing, I tried my hand at some more prose-y writing and entered the Spanking.co.uk competition with a wee piece focused on what I love about spanking.  Now, I'm under no illusion that I'll win, but it was a lot of fun mulling over what exactly I felt and thought about during a scene, and trying to translate that into words. You can see my piece here, and vote for it or any of the others over here.

Only downside is that ever since I've been lusting after a decent session, and The Boy is far away and swamped in work!  Boo-fucking-urns.  Teasing myself into a lather, better get some appreciation for that!

So, whether you vote for mine or one of the others, do head on over there and check out those entries.  Voting ends on Sunday, so be sure to check back and see if your favourite won.

Lubetastic! ~ Liquid Silk

I have a crazy exam coming up in college, so I'm afraid my reviewing has taken a back seat to quickies in a big ol' pile of books.  And, while that image is intriguing in itself, a stressed and rather frazzled BB is not so fun.  Anyway, as I've managed to be rather slacky of late, I didn't want to let a week go by without throwing something out there.  So, quick and clean, much like the lube itself [cue drumroll] we have Liquid Silk.

Sexy Shinies! ~ NippleCharms Nipple Embracers

I'm a klutz.  I've always fancied body piercing, but given my skill at breaking myself without any sharp implements in range, I'd wind up being that person who gets a piercing ripped out.  So, my lust for standard body jewelry denied, I was intrigued when I spotted a picture on FetLife a few years ago of someone who had no-pierce shields that were every bit as pretty.  But, foiled again, I could only find them at horrific prices, or sold by people who thought that shipping from the US to the UK should cost three times as much as the product did.  Curses and such!  Then, the lovely TruePleasures hosted a competition to win a pair of Claddagh-style embracers, but had to be restricted to US only.  However, she'd included some links to the NippleCharms site, and after having a browse around, I spotted that their prices were reasonable, and not only that, but so was their international shipping rates!  Bingo!

I managed to resist for...ooh, about three hours.  And then proceeded to torment the postie for the next week and a half, because not that I don't trust USPS, but their tracking is a bit hit and miss.  As in it still says it's in JFK.  Oh well!  They did actually arrive within the estimated time, and bonus of no customs to pay (I was lying awake at night worrying if that'd balls it up).
Pair, boxed.
Depending on the design you choose, they may come singularly or as a pair, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.  The heart-patterned crystal-set embracers I chose were solos, so I ordered two to make the set.  The packaging was fairly simple, just a plastic blister box with a card backing and the jewelry loose inside, but with a cute cream net storage pouch and a card included in the envelope.  Despite appearing so delicate, and being fragile enough that there's a warning on the box backing about stretching them, the pieces aren't so fragile as to be at risk from being loose within the plastic box, especially as they were well cushioned in the bubble-wrap of the envelope.

Latest Goodies What I'm Liking

I'm a big fan of the pretty Icicles range of glass dildos, and this is one I'm desperate to get myself, especially when SexToys have it for a mind-blowingly stupid price.  Fingers crossed it's still at this insanely silly price when I get some cash in later in the week.  Seriously, a third of the usual price for such a stunning piece of pretty, I'll be kicking myself if I let this get past.

Meanwhile, Lovehoney have the Minna Ola, which I recently reviewed, for sale with a free pleasure-enhancing gel.  While I may not have fallen in love with it, I'll happily agree that it's a quality toy and a stupid amount of fun to play with.

And while we're on the subject of free stuff, there's just over three days left to enter Karen Blue's giveaway for Tantus' Anaconda Dildo.

Awright, that's about all the swank I have to share for today, I'm off back to bed to nurse my lurgy.
