Lingerie Review: The “Shawna”

Shawna Front View
March 8, 2017

At the end of December 2016, when I was coming up with New Year’s intentions and things to do for my 30th birthday (and throughout the year), I wrote up a Facebook post asking for suggestions. One idea from a friend was to get some birthday lingerie for myself. It just so happens, I am also friends with one of the few exclusively plus-size lingerie retailers in California…or maybe anywhere,…

Review: Crash Pad Series Episode 230: Kitty Stryker & Jetta Rae

Kitty Stryker-Jetta Rae Crash Pad Series Ep230
January 10, 2017

As always, I have to gush over Crash Pad. Episode 230 was phenomenal as ever, but not for the obvious reasons. I’ll mention the unexpected first. It’s not so much bad, as I kind of wish there had been more “sex.” But that’s a me problem, not a them problem. And to be clear, it’s not even a problem. The sex felt a little like an afterthought to me. It turns…

Review: Happy New Year from Crash Pad (2017)

January 10, 2017

How effing awesome is this 5 minute clip?  It perfectly captures the sexiness, diversity, queerness, individuality, fun, playfulness, creativity, and care both among the performers and those behind the camera, all set to a classical music piece. That it was set to classical music took me back to my grad school days at the Institute where we watched the “Fuck-a-rama” (also sometimes known as “Pornucopia”).  I kind of feel like there needs…

Review: Tenga Flip Hole (Black)

Tenga Flip Hole Black
October 4, 2016

In the spring of 2016, when the opportunity presented itself for me to review a Tenga Flip Hole from the awesome folks at SheVibe, I jumped at the opportunity to review a toy for penises. The only downside is I don’t have a penis in my life at the moment. But I do have awesome friends! So I offered the Tenga Flip Hole to one of my close friends and he was…

Review: Playbox Kinky Subscription Box (July 2016 Edition)

Playbox Adult Subscription Box
August 26, 2016

Blue Apron. Graze. Hello Fresh.  Birchbox. Gwynnie Bee. Ipsy. These days, there are subscription box services for just about any category of items you might want. Welcome to the future! I personally do not use any of these services at this time, but I like the idea. How is this relevant to me and my reviews? Well, I’ve vaguely heard of “adult” subscription boxes off and on for a year or so,…

Crash Pad Series Episode 220: Mistress Kara & Stefani Special

Crash Pad Series Ep 220
August 6, 2016

One of my favorite things that I get to see in Crash Pad is playing with gender and titles, specifically in this episode, using the title “Sir” to address someone who is femme presenting. It throws sand in the face of hetero- and cis-normativity, and I’m all for that.  There’s nothing quite like the zap of the Neon Wand. (Funnily, I attended a class earlier today on ElectroSex.) I seriously…

Review: Tantus Uncut #1

Tantus Uncut 1
August 4, 2016

When I first heard about the Tantus Uncut dildos, I realized it had never occurred to me to have a dildo with “foreskin.” There’s my American (Jewish) perspective showing, I suppose.  Some background on how the Uncuts came about. The Uncut dildos were a collaboration with SheVibe. (You may recall they co-designed Bound.) They were first revealed at a trade show in January 2015. People have been clamoring for intact…

Crash Pad Series Episode 219: Chocolate Chip and Eros LaFemme

July 18, 2016

First, before I share my thoughts on Episode 219, I have to say that I really appreciate that Crash Pad has encouraged this new wave of Sex Educators Review Porn. You should definitely check out the hashtag #SexEdPornReviews on Twitter as well as their blog posts for past episodes.  Secondly, I’ve totally slacked on my monthly reviewing of Crash Pad Episodes and I apologize. I have, however, participated in several of the…

Review: CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting

May 29, 2016

I’ve been so swamped and had various life/family issues over the past couple of months, I somehow managed to miss one of my monthly Crash Pad reviews. I haven’t been watching much porn lately, unfortunately, but that’s the ebb and flow of life. I had every intention to review the Guide to Fisting and post it in April, but it just didn’t happen. So, here it is finally. The Crash Pad…
