TMI Tuesday: The Sexy Things We Do And Say

“I had fun producing this week’s TMI Tuesday questions. I found inspiration from reading elsewhere, which sparked my imagination into creating my own slightly twisted questions. Have fun! -H”

1. Close your eyes and think about having sex with your lover. Now, what was the first image that came to your mind? Was it foreplay? What kind of sex? What position? Where?
The first image that came to my mind wasn’t foreplay at all – it was being bent over a chair, with my hands on the seat, with him behind me…his hands cupping my breasts and thrusting into me as we looked into each other’s eyes in the large mirror on the bedroom wall.

2. What is that most memorable thing that you or your partner said immediately after sex?
It would have to be “I love you” and “Oh God.”

3. Whether reward or punishment, a part of your body must be shown on a huge billboard in the heart of your city/town. Which body part will you select to be 14 feet tall by 48 feet wide (4.27 meters x 14.63 meters)?
I’d pick my breasts. I think they’re one of my best features, and they’d look rather nice on a large billboard. I can just imagine them with hard nipples displayed above the city for everyone to see…

4. You are about to lose your power of speech, what’s the one thing you would want to tell someone before that happens?
Hmmm….that’s a tough one, as there’d be so much I’d want to say. I guess I’ll go with this: no matter what, I love you.

5. You are stricken with a disorder that causes you to blurt out a single phrase every time you orgasm? What is that phrase?
I think I’ve already been stricken with this disorder – “Oh God!” is it. I’m thankful it isn’t “chocolate cucumbers” or “no soup for you.”

Bonus: If you had to make out with a friend (same sex or opposite sex) to save the world from mass destruction, whom would you pick?
Hmmm….I would probably pick my best friend – it’d be my first same-sex experiment, and hey, if it would save the world….

Cute and Compact

I enjoy a good rabbit, although often they don’t work quite right for me. Usually it’s the clit stimulator that fails me, either because it’s too short, or it isn’t strong enough. While most of the rabbits I have are long as well as wide, I’ve also been exploring some of the more compact ones. This month, as part of the Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I received the Entice Natalie rabbit vibrator for free to review.

natboxThe Entice Natalie comes in a black cardboard box, with a picture of the toy on the front and product information on the sides and back. Inside, Natalie is wrapped in plastic, and a general manual is also included. The vibrator is available in pink, raspberry, and purple, and I received mine in pink.

natfromsideThis is a short vibrator, but not a thin one. Natalie is just 6 1/2” long overall, with 4” insertable. Her shaft is curved with bulges around the head and lower shaft, and a swirl with a pronounced ridge run down her sides. The head of the shaft is the widest, at 1 1/2” in diameter, and it narrows in the middle before widening above the base.

The clitoral stimulator is 2” long and about 1” in diameter. It’s shaped like a rabbit, with separated ears to spread the vibrations, and a pronounced nose and small tummy bulge for contact.

The shaft and stimulator are covered with a silicone that’s smooth to the touch, with virtually no drag. The surface is firm yet doesn’t feel rigid. The shaft is flexible at its narrowest point, and the clitoral stimulator can also flex outward for positioning. Both the shaft and stimulator contain motors, and both are controlled together.

natbatteryNatalie runs on 2 AAA batteries, which are inserted into the base of the toy. The cap, which is PU-coated ABS plastic, matches the color of the silicone, and can be removed by pressing the tab in and lifting. The battery compartment has a slip of paper inside which indicates the battery direction. When the cap is snapped securely back onto Natalie’s base, the toy is waterproof and can be used in the tub.

natinhandTwo control buttons are located on the front of the shaft below the clitoral stimulator. Both buttons are clearly labeled and covered with silicone.The top button is a dedicated on/off button, and the bottom button controls the vibrations and patterns of both the shaft and stimulator. Natalie always starts on low, steady vibration, and has three steady vibration patterns and seven pulsing and escalatiing patterns.

The vibrations are moderate in both the shaft and stimulator, and they’re quiet – you won’t hear Natalie being used if there’s any kind of background sound.

Natalie is easy to clean, and should be washed before and after use with warm water and antibacterial soap, or you can use toy wipes or spray. Once dried, it can be stored in its box or in a toy bag. Water-based lube is recommended, but if you’d rather use silicone, do a spot test towards the base of the shaft before applying it to the toy.

nataloneSo, Did It Work? I like the overall design of Natalie. She’s compact, but her shaft isn’t small like many compact vibes. She’s easy to insert when lubed up, and with her curved shaft and shape, she’s nicely filling. The motor in the shaft is strong enough for me for internal vibrations, and many of the patterns are enjoyable. The flexibility of both the shaft and stimulator make it easier to position her.

Natalie’s clitoral stimulator is cute, but it could be a bit longer for me. The tips of the ears tickle my clit during use, but I’d much rather have the nose hit my clit dead on so I could apply a bit more pressure. As it is, the ears provide some pressure, but not quite enough – I’d rather have them dancing above or around my clit. Since the vibrations are only moderately strong, there’s not quite enough power on my clit to make me easily orgasm.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Entice Natalie vibrator for free to review! If you like more compact rabbits, enjoy a thicker shaft, and don’t need a longer clitoral stimulator or very strong vibrations clitorally, the Natalie would be a nice choice.

This product was provided to me for free in exchange for an unbiased review. This review is in compliance with the FTC guidelines.

TMI Tuesday: Doing Business

By Brett Hammond (Flickr: Pigal’s Peep Show) [CC-BY-2.0], via Wikimedia Commons

This week’s TMI Tuesday is the idea of Virtual Sin and the questions are a collaboration between him and TMI Tuesday Blog. Enjoy!

For each of the categories listed below, imagine that a new business or event of that type opened in your area. Tell us whether you would check it out or attend; and, whether you would go alone, with friends of your gender, or with a significant other/lover. Expound on your answer as much as you’d like.

1. Sports Bar: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I’d check out a sports bar, as long as it wasn’t golf season – during football season would be best. I wouldn’t go alone, but I’d go with either friends or my husband to watch a game or two.

2. Brew pub or beer hall: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I think this would be fun – I’d go with either friends or my husband.

3. Wine Festival: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I am so there. I’d go to a wine festival alone if I couldn’t find anyone to come with me, or with friends or husband.

4. Tanning Salon: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I’ve never been to one, and I don’t think I’d ever go. If I’m going to tan, I’d rather be out in the sun. Those little beds look awfully claustrophobic, and wasn’t one of them used to fry someone to death in a Final Destination movie? Yeah, no.

5. Sex/kink event (e.g. Dark Odyssey, Sexapalooza, Leather conferences, fetish ball, kinky salon): never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
This is an event I’d love to go to. I don’t think there’d ever be one where I live, but if one was close by, count me in. I wouldn’t go alone, but with a good friend or my husband, you bet – I’d be there with bells on….er, figuratively as well as likely literally.

6. Strip club: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I’ve been to a few strip clubs, and none of them were what I expected at all. The first one was downright horrifying – everyone looked anorexic from too much coke, plus they didn’t know how to make a long island ice tea….the second one was somewhat upscale, but still not what you see in the movies…although there was one girl who could hold empty beer bottles under her breasts…I’d go to a new one at least once, with either friends or husband.

7. Sex toy store: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
Ok, so this is probably funny considering that I worked at an online sex toy store for a few years, but I’ve never actually been in a brick-and-mortar sex toy store.  I’d like to check one out, though – I’d probably bring along my best friend, as I think we could do some serious shopping.

8. Upscale Spa: never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I think this would be wonderful – and I’d most likely go with my best friend, or a group of girlfriends.

9. Adult Sex education conference (e.g. Eroticon, CatalystCon): never, alone, with friends, with your SO?
I love going to conferences, although I’ve never been to one of these. I’d go alone or with my best friend.
