Babeland

Babeland has street cred, and for good reason: they’re an amazing operation, and they’re picky about their toys (like me!). They are widely recognized as one of the most popular feminist and woman-run sex shops, both online and off.

4-year blogiversary giveaway winners

Wow. I’m about 99% certain my 4-year blogiversary giveaway was the most successful giveaway in the history of this blog. And that’s a tall order considering some of the hella cool giveaways I’ve done in the past. I am humbled by all the amazing comments you left offering improvement ideas. I’ve already implemented one of the ideas — a suggestion box where you can drop your thoughts without even giving your name. Hopefully it will be useful when you have something embarrassing you want to tell me? Or something? Without further ado, here are the lucky winners of the 15 toys in my giveaway! The Tantus Splash, donated by Tantus, goes to Kyra! The LELO Luna Beads, donated by LELO, go to . . . read more

4-year blogiversary giveaway -- 15 prizes!

4-year blogiversary giveaway — 15 prizes!

Four motherfuckin’ years, my friends. That’s how long this blog has been chugging along. If you know me at all, you know I’m a fan of throwing epic blogiversary giveaways each October to thank everyone for following my escapades, and this year is no different. Well, except it’s even BETTER than years past, because I have rounded up FIFTEEN PRIZES for y’all. As always, I am only giving away toys I’ve tried and loved, with the brief exception of the Tantus Pack ‘n Play No. 2 which I’m sure is awesome, and the Fleshlight which I do not have a cock to behold with. I also tried to wrangle a range of items: vibrators, dildos, butt plugs, a masturbation sleeve, a packer, . . . read more

Blogiversary giveaway: celebrating 200 reviews with 600 bucks!

Blogiversary giveaway: celebrating 200 reviews with 600 bucks!

Oh snap, my friends! This week is my 3-year blogging anniversary, and I’ve hit 200 reviews written! I wrote 35 reviews off-site before I began this blog, and this blog is the home for the other 165 reviews. I’ve been reviewing for 4 years, which is the equivalent of one review about every 7 days. Over time, I have learned to not say stupid shit in my reviews, and I’ve become increasingly more snobby discerning. To mark this dual momentous occasion, I asked several awesome sex toy companies to help me give away an epic ton of gift cards. Behold, the bounty I have rounded up for all y’all: SheVibe donated four $50 gift cards! Babeland donated one $50 gift card! MyPleasure donated one $50 gift card and . . . read more

Giveaway: Green sex toys for everyone!

Giveaway: Green sex toys for everyone!

I’ve never been a big participator in St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t go out and get wasted on Irish Car Bombs, nor do I specifically remember to wear green every year. But I do have quite the affinity for the color green. Green is one of the most under-used colors in the sex toy market, and it’s time someone honored the toys/companies that dare to go there. Thus, a giveaway! For St. Patrick’s Day, yes. But mostly for green. I have 10 green toys to give away!1 I was able to wrangle a little something for everyone — dildos, vibrators, a Hitachi attachment, a butt plug, and a toy for cocks. As long as you like green2, there should be . . . read more

Review: The New Romantix

Review: The New Romantix

[This post contains mentions of James Deen. I no longer support him or his work.] The New Romantix is one of the most frustrating porn films I’ve ever seen. From the description of it, I thought I’d love it. It features some performers I really love — James Deen, Lexi Belle, Joanna Angel — and is endorsed by one of the best sex shops around, Babeland. The back of the DVD case explains that The New Romantix “profiles 6 beautiful, intelligent, funny, and amazing women on their passionate quest for sexual liberation and empowerment.” Great! Empowerment! I’m all for it! But holy shit. One by one, the scenes are ruined. Not by lack of ability in the performers, but by music. . . . read more

Babeland gift card winner!

I probably should not admit this, but I have a soft spot for people who are looking for their first sex toy. I am a firm believer that everyone should at least try a sex toy at some point in their life. So, after some thought, I’ve decided that the winner of the $20 Babeland gift card is Eva, who I think will appreciate $20 more than us seasoned folks. Eva writes: I have a confession to make. I don’t own any sex toys. It seems bizarre even to me that I haven’t even used one before though I’ve been interested every since my college days. If I won this gift card I would have no excuse and I would . . . read more

Yep, my friends at Babeland are letting me have a second contest! I’m giving away a $20 Babeland gift card!

Only entrants living in the continental United States, please.

Babeland Swag Contest Winners!

Babeland Swag Contest Winners!

I didn’t get very many entries for my first swag contest, but two of them made me giggle the most. I asked participants to digitally edit a sex toy into a curious situation. Here are the two winners… From Syntax, who will be winning the Rabbit Habit! From Roland Hulme, who will be winning the Pink Kink Kit! Thank you to everyone who participated. I just might have to revive this same contest idea at a later date, because there are so many untapped curious situations in the world that sex toys could be placed into…

Swag Contest: Win a Rabbit Habit or Pink Kink Kit!

[Comic copyright xkcd, of course] Very exciting news! My pal Mae at Babeland is allowing me to give away two great items to my readers. Having only started this blog in October, I am ecstatic to be holding a contest this early in my sex blogger life. Up for grabs: the Rabbit Habit and the Pink Kink Kit (includes blindfold, whip, and collar, all in pink leather). After much deliberation, I have decided on a task for you: Digitally edit your favorite sex toy into a curious situation.
