Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Mustang

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Mustang

I knew I was in for something good because the email began, “I feel like only you can understand the breathtaking sense of wonder and accomplishment I’m feeling.”

Unsurprisingly, the email was about squirting.

Despite already owning and loving the G-spot god that is the Pure Wand, the letter writer experienced her first ever ejaculation with the unassuming Vixen Creations Mustang. See, I knew it would make a good beginner’s G-spotter!

Aside from having the best screen name on earth, That Virgin Who Can’t Drive is also very adept at describing sensation. As it turns out, the Mustang pairs wonderfully with the Leaf Vitality vibrator…

Okay, so, I’m still relatively new to toys and your blog has been indispensable in helping me to spend my money wisely. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Seduction

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Seduction

It’s been three years since I reviewed the NobEssence Seduction (oh my god, I’m OLD), and in that time, my extreme fervor for this dildo may have gotten lost somewhere, confined to emails and little Twitter freakouts and cruel Tumblr ultimatums. But case in point: I once had a dream I got angry, accidentally broke my Seduction, and just started bawling.

Luckily, I’ve found the perfect way to revive my love for the Seduction in Nuala MacMoragh, a reader who bought it based on my recommendation and was just as impressed. I asked her to take a photo of her Seduction, which is made of Padauk wood, and share her experience with y’all. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Comet G Wand

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Comet G Wand

Usually it takes a bit of time for my screaming endorsements to seep into the consciousness of my readers. Especially when the toys I love cost a pretty penny. But not this time. I flailed about the Jopen Comet G Wand less than two months ago, and I’m already getting reports back that peeps have bought and loved it.

A reader named Alex sent me the sweetest, ego-stroking email thanking me for alerting her to toxic sex toy materials and iffy lube ingredients, the existence of good porn, and glass dildos. She bought the Crystal Delights Star Delight and Comet G Wand based on my reviews, and confessed, in perhaps the greatest compliment ever given to me, “my vagina thanks you from the bottom of its (our?) heart.”

Intrigued, I asked her to elaborate. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Jollet

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Jollet

The story of the Jollies /Chavez Dezignz Jollet is a long and strange one. I acquired and reviewed mine just as Jollies, as a company, was petering out. Their toys were vanishing from stores, and nobody quite knew what was going on. One of my sex blogger friends, Sundae, got her hands on one and also loved its G-spotting goodness — so I asked her to write about her experience for my blog. She did. I put it in my drafts. Then I forgot about it.

One year after that, I formally announced the end of Jollies after receiving confirmation from the CEO.  . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Romp

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Romp

I am unabashed about my love for the NobEssence Romp. I can’t help it if it’s the best butt plug ever made, okay?! I can’t help it if I turn into a ROOOOOMP zombie every time I talk about it!

But in case you don’t believe just me, or are wary to drop the cash — you’re in luck. My amigo, Andy (who recently launched a blog, so go smother him!), has also experienced the ROOOOOMP, and he was just as blown away as I was. Here is what he has to say about it:

FINALLY, I bit the bullet and bought a Romp…

I’d been after one of these since reading Piph’s glowing review. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Alumina Motion

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Alumina Motion

Ah, the Tantus Alumina Motion. One of my favorite dildos. I gave one away in my blogiversary blowout, to an awesome guy by the name of Jaye Valentine. Jaye is always tweeting about the Motion — even singing to me about it — and it always makes me smile. I asked Jaye to elaborate on his and his partner’s experiences with the Motion, and boy did he!

When asked what defines sex-toy happiness for me these days, I have only three words:

TANTUS ALUMINA MOTION.

I won this toy during Epiphora’s one-year blog anniversary and seriously, this toy is my butt’s newest, bestest friend. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Eroscillator

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Eroscillator

[This is the second installment of Postcards from the Peanut Gallery! This feature chronicles my readers’ experiences with toys I reviewed. If you want to tell me about yours, contact me.]

I’m not surprised that my insanely extensive and enthusiastic review of the Eroscillator resulted in several of my readers lusting after it. Sarahbear took the plunge and actually bought it; here’s what happened!

My husband and I read your review for the Eroscillator together. More than once you had almost convinced me to get the biggest package they offer but I couldn’t resist a coupon for the 2 Plus. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Luna Beads

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Luna Beads

[Welcome to the first installment of Postcards from the Peanut Gallery! This is a feature that will chronicle my readers’ experiences with toys. If you want to tell me about yours, contact me.]

It was my glowing endorsement of the Lelo Luna Beads that convinced Rachelle to get them. But beyond that, her job as a waitress needed some sprucing up. And sprucing up it got! She messaged me to tell me all about her honeymoon with the Luna Beads:

I am in love. From the time the first little ball went in I knew something wonderful was about to happen. . . . read the rest
