Tantus

Tantus is a truly amazing sex toy manufacturer, best known for its 100% silicone dildos and butt plugs. Their Splash dildo is one of my favorites, as is the Cush O2 and aluminum Alumina Motion. They also have an AMAZING closeout section. Cheap cheap cheap silicone toys!

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2015

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2015

[Check out my annual best/worst tag for older lists!]

What a year 2015 was! I showed my face on the internet and subsequently used it to prank all of you. I got emotional about what being a writer means to me, then had my work published in Best Sex Writing of the Year. I managed to get out of the house a couple times, to attend the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summitan epic sex blogger retreat, and two smaller #dildoholiday vacations with friends. When the universe manifested yet another “scientific” “study” “proving” that squirt is pee, I protested loudly, and so did many of you. . . . read the rest

Epiphora's sex toy gift-giving guide

Epiphora's sex toy gift-giving guide

If you ask me, sex toys are way better gifts than socks or body wash. Now I may be biased, considering I own over 400 of them and have been testing them and reviewing them for six years, but you know. The point is, I have OPINIONS about things that go on vulvas and in vaginas and butts, and even sometimes over penises.

Today, I was on Sex Out Loud Radio telling the universe all about my top sex toy gift ideas — plus my tips for picking out a sex toy for someone else. As an accompaniment, here’s the written version — along with photos of the toys and links to my reviews. . . . read the rest

How often do you masturbate? You have quite a collection of toys; do you end up using most of them?

Generally, every other day. Sometimes I go days and it’s just a mistake because I always come too fast and don’t get to adequately test the toys. I always say that I should do it more, and I should. Ideally, once or twice a day. HOWEVER, I’m now in the habit of having more than one orgasm per session. That is a good habit to have formed. . . . read the rest

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2012

[Check out my annual best/worst tag for older and newer lists!]

Ahhh, yearly traditions! As 2012 comes to a close (how did that happen, though, seriously?!), the time has come for me to recount my most loved and most hated sex toys that I tried this year. As in 2011 and 2010, I’ll first list the best/worst toys, then give out faux awards such as “Most Heinous Battery Compartment” and “I Risked My Life For You; You Are Welcome.”

Don’t forget to comment with which toys you loved and hated this year!

    Review: Splash

    Review: Splash

    The Tantus Splash looks like it’s in the midst of being slimed. And if it were a celeb at a Nickelodeon awards show, it’d be grinning and taking it like a champ. Because life is good for the Splash. It is a dildo that stands out aesthetically, but also succeeds internally. It doesn’t have to worry about being deficient in some area, as many sex toys are. (Those are the kinds of toys that might scowl whilst being slimed. Bad sports.)

    I tested a prototype of this toy, and I loved it the moment I saw it. Then I really loved it when I put it in my vagina. . . . read the rest

    This will be your life.

    This will be your life.

    Look, I get it. You think this is a picture of a FUN FUN SUPER FUN night. I know — you’d kill to own that many sex toys. But I would gently ask that you acquire a sense of scale and absorb what you are seeing here — five dildos, two of them enormous, two vibes, and a bottle of lube, consuming my desk. So many toys that I ran out of paper towel, so I resorted to setting them on my notebook as I used them.

    These toys were for one masturbation session, and I had a reason for using every single one. . . . read the rest

    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! . . . read the rest

    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. . . . read the rest

    Mini sex toy doodads!

    Mini sex toy doodads!

    I think I can call this a legit collection now.

    Back in April, after jealously ogling everyone’s photos of the mini Tantus dildos at Momentum, the lovely Jenna sent me a few in various colors. They are mini Goliaths, and I adore them. I set them up on my shelf all in a row, and threw that ridic PicoBong die up there, too, because what else was I gonna do with it?

    Then when I saw Searah at Early to Bed talking about Fleshlight samples and Vixen Creations penises the other day, I saw an opportunity to expand my collection of weird tiny sex toy thing-a-majigs.  . . . read the rest
