Holiday Update

I've been having some health issues the past few weeks, so I've not been as active as I should have been, and probably won't be until after New Year's.  Ah well, I have my fella to distract me, and I fully intend to have my way with him, so won't be wasted time off-line anyway!
Come get your present, bitch!



Seasons Greetings and all that good stuff.  Have a good one, folks!

I Vant To Svank Your Bum! ~ Kinklab Leather Vampire Gloves

In my innocence, I'd never heard of vampire gloves before another chicky offered up a pair she'd gotten by mistake for swapsies.  I'm not sure if I'd had taken the risk on the price - £35 at LoveHoney - had I just stumbled upon them, so I really am thankful that her misfortune le to me getting a pair on the cheap.  After doing a bit of research, they appeared to be quite popular, possibly because they are pretty simple to use and can work for both light sensation play and for causing actual pain, depending on how you wield them.  And so I came to be the proud owner of a small pair of Kinklab Leather Vampire Gloves.

I have pretty small hands so, shockingly, the Small were almost perfect; they were slightly larger than your standard small-sized leather gloves, so my stubby fingers leave them slightly unfilled in the finger tips.  Definitely do not be tempted to go up a size, unless you're planning on wearing them over other gloves.
Hidily ho! Not quite second skin, but comfy.

I Love My Postie!

My pair of RhodeoHs arrived - and are freskishly comfortable - as did the Tantus Throb I ordered.  It's a little smaller than the ideal for the o-ring, but it sits fine, and was just too tempting to leave on the wishlist.  Downside: fella's not here until next week, so I have these delicious goodies sitting sadly awaiting his return.  Really cannot wait to break the lot in!

I've also splurged out and bought some purty stockings:
 
Music Legs Sheer Lace Top Stockings with Butterfly Detailing

Along with an erotic book, aaaaaaaaaall my Christmas shopping, some new Winter boots, and a new phone because my Sony Ericsson T715 of never-charging-for-no-fucking-reason was driving me bonkers.  It scares me that I've spent so much, and still have £50 to do me until next week.  This having money thing, I could get used to it.

Love for Toys In Love

When I spotted the RodeoH giveaway in last week's Pleasurists, I knew I had to have them.  I'm fairly sure that my Twitter followers have all decided I've gone a little funny, but at the end of the day, it was worth it: I won!

A million thanks to Toys in Love, I'll be sure to tag back in once they've been fully road tested.  And anyone reading this should check his site out, it's a wonderland of procrastination-fodder. 

Lollipop Cock ~ Doc Johnston Classic 8 Inch Vac-U-Lock Dildo

I mentioned in my review of the Doc Johnston Vac-U-Lock harness that I'd get back to the juicy details of my sexy Mister Potato-Head's accessories, and, while I'm slow as fuck, I'm not a liar.  So here we go: Doc Johnston's Classic 8 Inch Vac-U-Lock Dildo.

poke poke!

Myself and the fella were looking for something simple as a starter set, but that was quality enough to not need us to go buying new ones after the first session. The decision process was not helped by my indecisiveness over the whole realistic issue: we were both keen on it being 'my cock', but many of the supposedly realistic ones are rather, well, pruney! Having settled on a no-balls version, this was pretty much the only decent option, and thus the decision-making was escaped yet again. I was still not sold on it, mainly due to the pink-a-rama head on it, but another review mentioned that it wasn't quite so hideously coloured as the picture shows, so we decided to give it a shot.

The dildo is indeed a lot less hideous in the (almost) flesh. It's not exactly true to life, but I don't get the feeling of there being some kind of Rudolf nose on the end of it. The veins are quite pronounced, as is the head, but while the textures are quite noticeable, the squidginess of it means it's not not going to rip out someone who's a little sensitive. I do think it'd be a bit much for someone who prefers slimline toys, but myself and the boy can take it in any of our three cumulative holes without a problem, so it isn't exactly size-queen land. And, despite the swollen head and engorged veins, it's the same girth all the way down the shaft, so taking a couple of inches or the whole thing makes little difference, making the length not quite so intimidating.

Love Shock, Baby ~ Kinklab Neon Wand

Out of all the things I love, pain and shiny things come fairly top of the heap. Electric play has always intrigued me, and violet wands in particular have been on my lusting-after list for quite a while. However, the olde stylee refurbished wands run into the hundreds, and to be honest, are so tricksy with the wiring that it's a bit of a gamble unless you know really well the person doing the restoration and their rep (and the good ones rarely have 'budget' lines!). Plus there's the additional costs of sourcing extra attachments, blah blah blah... It's a big outlay, and my wallet is a little on the undernourished side.  Enter the Kinklab Neon Wand.

I'd used some Kinklab products before, and they do seem to have a position of 'accessible kink', making things that are unlikely to satisfy the more extreme members of the BDSM scene, but are cheaper than most, very beginner-friendly, and the kind of thing that's not so 'newbie'-aimed as to be discarded if you're more than an idle dabbler.

One of the most important parts of the kit is actually the box. Honestly, it sounds silly, but when you think about how delicate the glass attachments are, you really do want to know that they're not just rattling around getting chipped and damaged. More so than most sex toys, as a chip here could be genuinely dangerous. Remember, gentle or not, this is still electricity we're talking about, and it's not really the kind of thing you want to take chances with! The case is satisfactory, shaped sponge with space for all the parts, and a magnet-lock on the lid. But it's not great, there's a good amount of wiggle room in the slots for the attachments, and the section for the wand itself doesn't really fit it and the plug all that easily. It's safe for storage, and it's so well packed that I wouldn't have any concerns about it post-delivery - but still be sure to give them a thorough check over, and make use of Lovehoney's awesome refund/exchange policy if there's any causes for concern! - but I do feel like if I was carting it around I'd need to pack it myself, if only for my own peace of mind.

Kinklab Neon Wand @ LoveHoney.co.uk
The wand handset itself is what they refer to as a 'solid state device'. Roughly translated, that means that it's securely packed, so there's no wires rattling around getting damaged or sending surges here and there. It's got a bit of weight to it, bit it fits comfortably in my hand and gives a sense of security that it's not going to break or explode or anything. There's very little to it: the cable comes out one end, the attachments slip neatly into the other, and there's the power dial at the cable end. I didn't like how the power dial has no settings as such, just a sliding scale - Off to Max - as it'd be nice to gauge exactly where someone's preferred level was and go back to that without faffing, but that's a minor issue. It did reassure me the way it 'clicks' on or off, so you can be sure that it's off and not just very very very low before plugging it in or changing attachments or what have you.

Who Love Short-Shorts?

Me!  As long as there's a cock either in or on them.  And lookie here!  The lovely folks at RodeoH have made just what every little girl wants: panties you can attach a dong to in the blink of an eye.  I cannot begin to describe just how much I need these in my life.

Lucky for us pervs-on-a-budget, Toys in Love has snaffled some free frillies to fight over.  I'll go get the mud, you girls start stripping: this is going to get messy before it ends!

New Cock on the Block: Doc Johnson Vac-U-Lock Leather Ultra Harness 3000

I've always been a big fan of being on the receiving end of anal play, but having not had a partner comfortable enough to turn things about, I was exceptionally interested when my new partner mentioned he'd had a little experience in being pegged. However, being the kind of person who over thinks what they'll put in a sandwich, I was big on examining every aspect before trying anything. I'm sure he must have been so sick of me looking at the minutia of every possible harness and dildo combination, but he bore me well, bless him. The main deciding factor in the end for us was that we both adore leather, and with the higher end leather harnesses out of our budget range, we were limited to this and a handful of o-ring style harnesses, all of which looked a little on the cheap side. I was concerned about being limited to the Vac-U-Lock range of dildos, seeing as they are rather limited, but when we found two options we were both happy with, we decided to go for this rather than shell out for something that seemed uncomfortable or just looked a bit tatty.

Packaging
I must say, I'm impressed by Doc Johnson's packaging style. All too often, the more kinkier items either come in rather graphic and cringe-worthy boxes, or in horrifically wasteful packaging that seems to take the 'so large and excessive no one could ever guess' style of discretion. We found a small cardboard (recyclable, yay!) box in muted yellow tones, with a picture of the product - devoid of porny model - on the front, and a another on the back as a diagram listing the various features. Would be obvious within seconds to any nosey type who picked it up, but it doesn't scream SEX TOY!! across the room. Very tasteful. Inside, there was a small plastic bag containing the attachment plug, a very thoughtful leaflet depicting the various dildos and accessories for the harness, the harness itself folded neatly, and a leather extension strap to allow it to accommodate a wider range of sizes. All neat and well thought through, with minimal waste, very impressive.
 
The Practicalities 
Vac-U-Lock Leather Ultra Harness 3000
First thing we had to do was attach the plug to the harness. It's only four poppers, but they are perfectly sized, so the final popper can be rather stiff. Once the harness had seen some action, I could manage it with minimal fuss, but the first time, the fella had to step in and do the manly thing. After that, sizing it is a simple enough process. There's three basic buckles: one on each hip, and one at the back where the thong meets the waistband. The extension strap could be added at any of these points if needed. I could reach all the buckles easily while wearing it myself, and they're very well designed, all rounded edges, small and secure, but easy to open and work with. The speed control holster slips freely along when pushed, so that can be positioned either as needed, or wherever it won't get in the way. I've not used it, but aside from giving it a whoosh about when putting the harness on, I forget it's even there, so there's no concerns with it irritating you. A little lube in the 'socket' of your dildo of choice makes them a breeze to get on and off. I did once struggle a little when I managed to trap an air pocket in one so it didn't want to secure properly, but it was easy sorted, and other than that they literally do just pop on and off like a rather more fun Mister Potato Head. Yet I've not once felt one slip even a smidge, so they definitely are locked securely in place.

Return of the clown-coloured toy drawer!

Jeez, I've been slacking something awful here! This whole college-child-boyfriend-socialising thing doesn't leave as much time for gabbing as you'd think! Anyway, what better way to return to the interwebz than with an announcement of FREE GREEN FUN!!!

Not from me though, no, I'm too cheap for that. From the lovely lassie over at Hey Epiphoria, who is constantly flooding the place with reviews and articles and give-aways. Honestly, I have no idea what you're doing in this wasteland when she's right over there!


Yes, that's right. It's soon Paddy's Day (note, NOT "Patty", despite what certain idiots may think!), and in that spirit, go green and nab yourself a FREE green sex toy as part of the Hey Epiphora Green Sex Toys for Everyone Giveaway!. I've entered myself, and have my eye on the pretty glass butt plug, but I'm just that nice that I want other folk to see what's up for grabs. They look amazing, and this chick knows her stuff, so they'll be sure to tick the safety box, too.

As Mrs. Doyle would say... G'wan, g'wan, g'wan, g'wan, g'wan, g'wan, GO ON!
