Wicked Wednesday: The Beginning

Begin at the beginning…there are so many beginnings. A lot of the beginnings in my life aren’t very clear – things just were, and I wonder when they started – and I missed out on their formation. Some beginnings, though, are much more defined, and sometimes the start of good things from bad…or the promise of good things that might be.

Death, although the end, has been a beginning in two phases in my recent life. When my Father died, several years ago now, it marked the beginning of my exploration into expanding my life sexually.  That may seem strange, but it hit me hard when he was gone, and I felt I had to shake up my life and start exploring – change was good. It’s been good, these many years, and through that start of wanting to change and making things happen, I’ve discovered so much that I don’t think I ever would have: sex toys, blogging, opening my eyes.

There are other important beginnings, many of which I don’t recognize yet…but someday they will blossom and tell another story.

TMI Tuesday: Yes, I’m listening…

1. Who has been the biggest influence in your life?
Hmmm….that really is a tough one. I think overall my father was the biggest influence in my life – he taught me so many things.

2. What kinds of things really make you laugh?
It really depends – I’m told I have a really odd sense of humor. Occasionally if I’m in the mood, I can get into stupid humor, like the movie Hot Shots or The Naked Gun. Many a horror movie has had me almost on the floor holding my stomach, hurting from laughing so hard that I can hardly breathe. Sometimes the things kids say can have me doubled over in laughter. I’ve laughed while reading novels (Elmore Leonard in particular). And tickling – tickling can make me laugh like crazy.

3. What’s your favorite place in the entire world?
Does it sound silly to say Disneyland? I obviously haven’t traveled a whole lot, but there is something about Disneyland that makes me able to forget the outside world and immerse myself in happyland.

4. Who is your best friend? What do you like about him/her?
My best friend is someone I’ve known for a long time – we met at a Pampered Chef party, and clicked. I love that we can talk about anything and everything, no matter what it is.

5. What’s your biggest goal in life right now??
My biggest goal is to try and get my life in order and make sense out of the chaos.

6. What was your family like growing up?
I remember a lot of good times. I was essentially an only child, as my sisters were out of the house when I was very young, and for the most part, things were fun.

Bonus: What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
I don’t know if it would surprise anyone, but I’m really a rather shy person.

Wicked Wednesday: Spread The Love

When love is unexpectedly spread…the gesture…the gift…the brief yet bright spot of happiness when someone makes you feel good, and loved…and you can do the same for someone else…it’s a feeling like no other.

So many ways to spread the love…some more literal than others…

TMI Tuesday: WTH Is She Thinking?!

1. You have been asked to organize a sex & kink weekend. Will you be more of a “hands-on” person or more of an “ideas” person?
Hmm…tough decision! I think I’d like to be a bit of both – come up with ideas for the weekend, as that would be fun, but also participate. There’s no better way to learn than hands-on, after all.

2. Assuming you are the hands-on type at this weekend sex romp, and you’ve entered a tent to ‘play’ with a male/female couple. Would you like to be given clear instructions before you begin to ‘play’ or do you prefer to be given the general idea of the task and work it out your own way.
I am more of a free-thinker, and I think it would be much more enjoyable to have the general idea and play it out than to have the whole thing entirely scripted.

3. True or False. “During sex, I like to hear and accept feedback.”
True. I like feedback, especially when it’s in the form of moans and sighs.

4. What are you wearing right now?
Right now I’m wearing a tiger-striped thong under a pair of grey shorts, and a black and grey t-shirt (no bra).

5. I show loyalty to my lover by _being receptive and communicating__ .

6. Do you always have to argue?
No – I don’t ever really have to, although if I’m right about something I most definitely will. And I’m usually pretty good at it.

Bonus: Pick up the closest book to you, open it to page 55. The first line on that page reads:
”…miser, you hoard up all the beauty in these drawers.” This is from The Collector, by John Fowles.

What To Wear

Spring and Easter are just around the corner, and it’s a time of flowers, bunnies, and of course, eggs. It’s been a while since I tried out an insertable egg-style vibrator,  so I was happy to receive the Power Play Kegel Exciter from Cal Exotics this month for free as part of their Sexpert program.

calexkegelinboxThe Kegel Exciter comes in an easy-to-open plastic clamshell case. It’s available in pink, teal, and purple, and I received mine in pink. The toy is visible through the front of the packaging, and the back contains some information. A general instruction booklet is also included.

calexkegelfrontviewThis is a vibrating egg with a retrieval cord. It’s about 5 1/2″ long overall: the body is 2 1/2″ and the cord is another 3”. The egg is about 1 1/4” in diameter, and it has a slightly tapered tip for easier insertion (use a good water-based lube to make insertion easier). The toy is made of ABS with a PU Cote (the egg itself) and silicone (the décor, cord, and buttons).  The egg itself is firm with a satiny finish, while the silicone cord is flexible and can stretch some.

The Kegel Exciter runs on 1 AAA battery. The battery compartment is on the back side of the egg (opposite the buttons), and slides off to insert the battery. When the door is securely closed, the Kegel Exciter is waterproof.

CALEXkegelbatteriesTwo buttons are located on the lower part of the body. The top button is the on/off button, and the bottom button controls the functions.  Once turned on, pressing the bottom button will cycle through 10 vibrations and patterns. The strength is about what you’d expect for a single AAA battery, and the toy isn’t terribly noisy – you won’t hear it if you use it internally (although you’ll feel it), and any background noise will cover the sound it makes if you use it for clitoral stimulation. An LED light between the buttons will flash and glow to the setting the toy is on.

The Kegel Exciter is easy to clean, and should be washed before and after use with an antibacterial soap and warm water, then dried. The battery should be removed when the toy isn’t in use.  You can easily store this in a drawer or toy bag.

calexkegelwithstringSo, Did It Work? I love wearable, vibrating eggs, and the Kegel Exciter is a decent one. I will admit that I misread its name when I first got it and thought it was called a Kegel Exerciser, but as an exciter it does its job. The vibrations aren’t crazy-powerful, but I like the intensity of this just fine, especially since I like to use this internally for longer periods of time and want to maintain some control.  It’s not too hard to change the patterns when using this internally, but you do have to pull it down to get to the button, so I like to find the pattern I prefer and leave it set until I’m ready to remove it.

In addition to using this internally, it works well for clit stimulation, especially when I want a milder vibration. The range of patterns is nice,  and the firmness is also good.

The one thing that would make this better as a wear-around toy would be to have a small remote – that way I could change the patterns while it was in place, or leave it up to my partner to turn it on and set the vibrations.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Kegel Exciter to review as part of the Sexpert program! If you like internal eggs that you can wear and be stimulated for longer periods of time, or you’d like to try it out and see why it’s so fun, this is a good choice.
