Review: Sex & Mischief Red & Black Stripe Flogger

A woman in lace lingerie with a flogger in her mouth.A tester item received from the awesome folks at ÜberKinky. I was sent this item in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“Another late review finally under my belt! I was sent this flogger ages ago by ÜberKinky, who have been extremely patient with me while I’ve gotten things sorted out. We opted for this flogger because we have broken every single one we’ve owned and wanted another to play with. When it first arrived, I was a bit worried it wouldn’t be able to last in our care…

“The packaging for this flogger was incredibly disappointing. It didn’t have much at all…”

Review: We-Vibe Touch

A strange-shaped purple vibrator.This toy was sent to me for free by Strawberry Blushes in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“I was sent this toy by the amazing team over at Strawberry Blushes after they were asking for reviewers over Twitter. After giving them a few options of what I’d like, they decided to choose one and send it without telling me what it was. When I opened it, I was genuinely surprised and happy since I’ve never had a We-Vibe product or designer vibrator before.

Part of the reason I’ve never had one is because designer vibes can be very expensive. Generally speaking they can cost upwards of £50 which can seem like a lot if you don’t have much money. When there are a lot of other cheaper toys just hanging around, it is difficult to see why you ought to settle for one expensive one.

So, let me try to convince you whether the We-Vibe Touch is worth your money!

“My package arrived very quickly and discreetly from Strawberry Blushes in a large brown box. There were no details on the front that would give away what was inside, which was fantastic.”

Review: An Executive Decision

A red twisting pattern on a black background.Another one of the novels sent to me for review by Xcite Books, this time the first of a trilogy.

Warning: SPOILERS ahead!

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

An Executive Decision is book one of the Executive Decisions trilogy by Grace Marshall, otherwise known as KD Grace. I’d never read anything of hers before but I had heard good things, so when I was sent this book to review I was happy to begin. It was interesting for me to read a book like this, since I generally opt to read books that feature LGBTQ or BDSM themes instead.

“I found it very difficult to put this novel down. Every time I got to the end of a chapter I would quickly flick to see how long the next was and convince myself to read ‘just one more’.”

Review: Awakening

A blue cover with a woman's hands bound behind her back by a tie.Another one of the novels sent to me for review by Xcite Books, this time concerning BDSM as the main theme.

Warning: SPOILERS ahead!

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“When this novel first arrived in the post, I was sceptical. The synopsis on the back was sort of interesting and I was intrigued by the fact that it was a winner of a Festival of Romance award but the blatant allusions to Fifty Shades of Grey were quite off-putting. I understand that it is easier to make things sell if you imply they’re like another hot property but there have been far too many books marketed like this in the past year. I’m bored of this type of marketing; it seems lazy and uncreative, especially when the book you’re talking about isn’t much like Fifty Shades at all.

“The cover of this novel is mainly done in blues, purples and whites. The photograph used is of a woman’s hands bound behind her back by a business tie, which I didn’t like very much.”

Review: Tops and Bottoms Discipline Delights story 8

A brunette wearing a shiny corset holding a paddle.This review is for a story from a BDSM anthology sent to me by the amazing people at Xcite Books.

Warning: SPOILERS ahead!

Story 8: Smile for the Camera by Kathleen Tudor (pages 76-81)

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“When I first read the title for this story, I expected it to be about a kinky photoshoot. I also expected it to be maledom/femsub with a heavy dose of compliments, teasing and eventual sex. It wasn’t. I’m not entirely sure why this was my first assumption considering the cover has a Domme with a paddle, but that’s what I immediately thought. Initially this was a disappointment since I find that kind of scenario extremely arousing but I decided to read the story anyway.

As you’ve probably guessed from the title of my blog and my life choices in the BDSM circle, femdom/malesub isn’t really my thing. It simply doesn’t work for me. So when I saw that this story had that setup I had my doubts as to whether it was going to be right for me or not. I approached this story with brief caution until I noticed that the relationship depicted was long distance – and had orders to boot! Since this is how my own BDSM relationship is I suddenly became quite interested.

“So, instead of a camera the story revolves around the use of a webcam.”

Review: SPUNK Lube PINK

Tall bottle with a cap, bearing the word SPUNK in pink letters.This review is for the pink version of SPUNK Lube from the Spunk Lube website. It only comes in one size as of this post which is 8oz, though there are various offers for it that you can take advantage of.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“I first heard about this lube from the lovely HellKat83 when she was discussing it on Twitter. My first reaction was confusion. Who the hell would want lube that felt and looked like cum? Surely it was only something people into cuckolding would like, not someone like me. But then I noticed it had a rather large gay following, saw porn stars using it and other bloggers began posting reviews. The more I saw it, the more I wanted to give it a try.

As a rule, I generally don’t like to judge things before I try them so I started following the creator of SPUNK Lube, str8cam, to see what the fuss was about. It was around this time that he brought out SPUNK Lube PINK, so I harassed him about letting me try some. My thought process was that it would be less weird since it wouldn’t look exactly like cum.

So, how does it measure up?

“When I got my bottle, it came wrapped heavily in bubble-wrap to keep it safe and prevent it from opening accidentally in transport.”

Review: Cake Celebrate! It’s a Slice Duo

A wide bottle of shower froth and a slim bottle of hand lotion side-by-side.This was a tester item from EdenFantasys, a US-based sex toy shop who were kind enough to send it to me in exchange for my honest review. In light of their horrible business policies, this review does not link to them any more.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“When I was offered these for review, I was quite pleased. I liked the design of the bottles and the idea of an orange and vanilla scent was quite appealing. I’d never had a product by Cake Beauty before, so I was looking forward to trying something new.

“The box these items arrived in is really cute and flirty…”

Review: Bad Boys anthology

Two men lying on a bed awkwardly trying to kiss and touch each other.This review was sponsored by the kind people at Xcite Books, who sent me a copy to review.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“When I was sent this book, I prepared for the worst. I often find myself looking at Xcite books and readying my eyes to roll into the back of my head. I suppose I’m difficult to please, but I find a lot of erotica leaves me wanting for various reasons. This anthology, however, did not.

“This book has all sorts of content though the main focus is on gay sex. From common 1-on-1 sex scenes to threesomes, monogamous relationships to one night stands, vanilla to BDSM, I believe this anthology has something for everyone.”

Review: Fairy Baby Vibrator

A small, pink and white wand-like vibrator with the words 'Fairy Baby' on it.This teeny tiny adorable toy was sent to me as a tester product from Vibrator Kingdom, who are awesome. Their website design is extensive, creative and mind-blowing so you should go and check it out right now!

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“The lovely people over at Vibrator Kingdom love their customers very much. Not only are they incredibly discreet with their packages, but inside you find loads of little goodies and special packaging just for you! I first heard about them when a fellow reviewer made a post about how they took her breath away and I knew that they were something special. I immediately started following them on Twitter and after a short while I ended up being sent this lovely toy to review!

“The packaging for the Fairy Baby itself is actually very bland. It comes in a small blister pack which opens from one end to the other.”

Review: Spartacus 24 Inch Leather Viper Tongue Slapper

24 Inch Leather Viper Tongue SlapperMy first tester item from the awesome people at Lovehoney who send them out weekly to people on their website.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

“I was asked by the lovely folks over at Lovehoney if I wanted to get this Spartacus 24 Inch Viper Tongue Leather Tawse Whip Slapper (what a mouthful!) as a tester when I had added it to my wishlist one day. Obviously, I jumped at the idea as my Daddy loves implements of pain to use on me and we have never had something like this before.

Generally speaking, my pain tolerance has gotten quite low because I’ve been sick a lot recently but I wanted to have some nice pain for once and so the item arrived at my house without a problem.

“The label on the Leather Viper Tongue is black, white and grey, just like the Spartacus website.”
