Anonymous asked: Is this blog your only blog where you review sex toys? And how did you start seriously reviewing toys and getting them from companies for free in exchange for reviews?
Yup. Since it’s just me reviewing I only have this one, and frankly keeping up another review blog separate from this sounds like way too much effort and no reward. :P
I interned at the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (which I highly recommend visiting if possible, they hold tons of fun and informative events and have lots of resources), and ended up reviewing toys while I was there. Their reviews are very fact-focused, and I wanted to do something a little more instinctive and feelings-based. At this point I had around half a dozen toys either from the Center or that I’d won as prizes, and I decided to make the blog. Somewhere around the seventh review in the new format I hit my stride, and I suppose that’s where the serious reviews start. A few larger companies (like Lovehoney) supported me before I was established enough for smaller places/manufacturers.
(I’m down to three questions in my inbox! ^.^)
Anonymous asked: What is your advice on the best way to safely and hygienically (and descretely) store toys?
Hey nonny! For safe storage, you only really run into issues with toys that weren’t safe to begin with (see super gross melt-y jar of doom), or toys with fur. For tails especially, you don’t want them loosing their shape due to keeping them in constrained storage.
Pure silicone toys can be stored together without any problems. Though if you have any doubts about a toy’s silicone, definitely store it not touching other toys, and always use a barrier method when playing with it. For cleanliness, saran wrap is the best. Wrapping up a toy post-cleaning ensures it won’t get any dust or fuzz on it while in storage.
For discretion, options are pretty subjective depending on where you live, and who you share your space with. A college dorm’s best storage option may be a small (locked) trunk under the bed, whereas an apartment’s may simply be a closet. My favorite is using a plastic bin- it’s easily cleaned if any lube spills, and is easy to move.
