Rant: Oh the Shame!

Oh The Shame!

There are few things that annoy more than reading either a sex toy review or adult themed blog and encountering certain words. While I understand the writers desire to not alienate readers at the very least they could stick to proper terms for anatomy then. For me it comes across as highly immature when reading a review of a vibrator or cock ring. Hell I have even encountered a few writers who employ the use of cutesie terms and/or euphemisms for sex acts. If as a sex writer/sex toy reviewer you find yourself shying away from using even proper words such as vagina, penis, testicles, clitoris and nipples then you should really take a step back and rethink the whole writing thing.

Reviews and articles are meant to convey some form of information in regards to the proper use and or experience of the writer. It is meant to help the reader either make a choice to purchase or not or to educate them on sexual health and well being. It is not meant to resemble a poorly written “erotic” novel meant for bored woman, or a lecture from an elderly aunt. So please, at the very least try to come across as an educated and mature adult as you write.

A list of some of the offending terms I have encountered. This list is in no order of importance.

  1. lady/male bits
  2. tender bits
  3. nub
  4. sensitive button
  5. his parts
  6. back hole (instead of actually saying anus)
  7. vajayjay
  8. Your you know what (yes I actually saw that in a review once ~growls~)
  9. lovehole
  10. hole
  11. nether region
  12. down below
  13. member
  14. dangly bits
  15. privates
  16. doing the deed
  17. sweaty time
  18. little swimmers (used in a post in regards to oral sex)
  19. white stuff (used in a review of a male masturbation sleeve)
  20. hoohaw

Pink Cherry Review

Better, more detailed and 100% accurate as to my experience with the company!
First off let me begin by stating that I live in the United States and that Pink Cherry is a Canadian based company. At first I was slightly hesitant to order from them, my main issue was shipping. I was afraid that it would take a long time to receive my package and/or that the free shipping offer was not valid on orders destined to the US. Well my fears were not justified. I have ordered from them a total of three times so far and each time I have received my order within a week. I also was able to receive free shipping on all orders for ordering over a certain amount. But more on all that later.

Adam&Eve Big O Kit of Disappointment

Adam and Eve Big O Kit
I had been seeing the promotion circulating for some time now. One simply had to enter the code DOLL and they received 50% off a single item in their cart, free shipping and also received a free Big O kit. After doing a little digging-not that much mind you- I couldn't find out any details as to what this mystery Big O kit actually contained. I figured that since I was doing an order anyways what the hell it's free. So I clicked the little box's that said send me my free kit which is valued at $29.95 and my other free mystery gift valued at $9.95.

Review: Fun Factory Tiger

Fun Factory Tiger

I am enamored with Fun Factory. Maybe it is because they are a German company (I have thing for Germans and Germany in general) Or maybe it is because of the quality of their products which never disappoint.
