Is Porn Feminist?

Is porn feminist? Is watching porn feminist? Is making porn feminist? These are conversations that I hear all the time in feminist and sex-related circles, and I just want to throw my two cents out there…

L’amourose Prism V Review

When I say that the L’amourose Prism V is my perfect vibrator, I am not using that word lightly. I test sex toys for a living, after all, and I sugarcoat nothing — the things I love still tend to come with a list of caveats, and the things I hate are spared no snarky comment or complaint. I want the sex toy industry to be better, and part of making it better is through critique…

The Best (And Worst) Sex Toys of 2016

As the year draws to a close, I just want to take a little look back over a lot of the sex toys I tried this year. Things I loved. Things I hated.

5 Sex Toy Shopping Mistakes

Sex toy shopping can be weird. I’ll be the first to admit that. Our society’s attitudes toward sex and masturbation are weird, and it’s usually not often that we buy things that are going to interact with our bodies so intimately. But because they interact with our bodies so intimately, there are a lot of considerations that need to be made when purchasing your sex toys…

We-Vibe Sync Review

In general, wearable couples vibrators are not something that usually excites me. I appreciate the wearable aspect as an accessibility feature, but even then, the motors in those toys are usually pretty weak and buzzy, and they can be really finicky about actually fitting different people’s bodies and staying in the right place. So when We-Vibe sent me their newest couples toy, the Sync, I was as skeptical as I’ve ever been…

Pregnancy Myths

Despite being one of the few topics that’s actually reliably covered in basic school sex education, pregnancy is still a subject that a lot of people are confused about. As someone who discusses sex online, a large percentage of the questions I get from people are about pregnancy concerns. If I do this, could I get pregnant? If I did this, could I be pregnant? …

Sex Toys & Disability Guide

In the 1970s, Gosnell Duncan, a man with a spinal cord injury, came out with the first ever line of silicone dildos, paving the way for the body-safe sex toy movement as we know it today. Duncan’s inspiration came directly from his disability activism and conferences he attended — he wanted to create a product that could help people in his community to more easily have sex and masturbate…

Fun Factory Miss Bi Review

When the nice folks at Fun Factory sent me the Miss Bi for review, they also hilariously included a small army of tiny dildos. And I fully intend on taking over the world with them. I have had my eye on the Fun Factory Miss Bi ever since the toy came out a year ago…
