I have a very discerning vagina. For over six years, I’ve been testing sex toys and writing about them on the internet. Highly trusted and well-known for my snarky style, I am the antidote to the coy, euphemistic sugar-coating that plagues bad sex writing. Many loyal readers entrust their future orgasms to me, and I do not take that honor lightly. (Want help finding the best parts of this site?)
Although I’m pretty sure the estimated value of my 400+ sex toy collection could’ve bought me a really fucking nice car if I had different priorities in life, this also means that I have a baseline knowledge of sex toys that very much surpasses that of your friend’s wife. Plus, I’m sometimes a hoot.
As a trusted voice in the sex toy landscape, I’ve been featured on Playboy, Slate, VICE, Bitch, and in XBIZ Premiere magazine, I have been a guest on Tristan Taormino’s Sex Out Loud Radio on two separate occasions, I participated in a couple panels at CatalystCon West and East, SheVibe made me into a superhero, Kinkly named me the #1 Sex Blogging Superhero of 2013, and I was quoted in Tristan Taormino’s book, The Secrets of Great G-Spot Orgasms and Female Ejaculation (press clippings here). I also offer consulting services to sex shops, manufacturers, and bloggers.
I don’t believe that wishy-washy sex toy reviews benefit anyone. I have my preferences and pet peeves (my hatred for pink and love of VixSkin are no secret), but you will never read a review of mine and question how I truly felt about the toy. Whether I love or hate something, I make it known. You’ll also never see the terms “marital aid” or “battery-operated boyfriend” in my reviews, because euphemisms give me hives. (I may or may not be known for Twitter stints that I call “Epiphora Tweets Bad Sex Toy Reviews.”)
I’m a feminist, pansexual, in a long-term relationship with a dude, and greatly prefer cats to children. My jack-off sessions are long and my cups of coffee are doused with creamer. When not smashing out paragraphs for this blog, I can be found working on the floor at a local sex toy boutique, making it my personal mission to sell as many Mona 2s as possible.
