Cascade….the world’s first self lubricating vibrators.

Say hello to the world’s first self lubricating vibrators, the Cascade Flow, Ripple, and Wave.  And these vibes are truly amazing!  So amazing that once you use one, you’ll probably never use any other vibrator again.

Each of these beauties come with the innovative Lube Play Technology, meaning you pop in a cartridge of lube (which lasts for 30 uses by the way) press the button, and your vibe releases the perfect amount of lube and you’re set to play.

Cascade with Lube Cartridge

Why didn’t someone think of this before?  We’ve been having to stop, search the nightstand, grab what we hope is the right lube for the toy we’re using, squeeze or pump the bottle into our hands, spread it on, then play.  With the Cascade, just press the button and your vibe is lubed for you.  Need more lube in the midst of playing?  Press the button again and voila!  More lube on your vibe.  It truly doesn’t get any easier than that.

The Lube Play Technology in the Cascade products is wonderful thing but these vibes are also beautiful, powerful (9 vibration settings) rechargeable (USB charger cable and hub are included) and come nicely packaged.  What more could a girl ask for?

2103 Dartz Black Snake

2103 DARTZ Black Snake

There’s always something in the news that makes me go WTF?? and today was no exception. Sometimes I think I need to turn off ‘google alerts’.  But then I might miss little gems like this one. Isn’t this a beauty?  The Black Snake. A new luxury vehicle from DARTZ.  Got a cool million or so and this could be yours.  I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want to be behind the wheel of this pretty baby?

I was looking at the pictures, drooling over my laptop and reading about the endless opulent options. Golden flourishes, gold leaf hood, diamond Kristall hood ornament, shark skin floor mats, snake wood dashboard and your choice of luxury leather seats in either snake, crocodile belly, ostrich or whale penis.  And…wait….whale penis???? Really??  Nothing like having an extra conversation piece in your vehicle.  I can hear it now.

Me:  Hop in, I’ll give you a lift.

Mom:  Ohhh, nice.  Feel these seats.  So soft and supple.  Feels like a cushy warm cocoon.

Me:  That’ll be the whale penis. Very expensive you know.

Mom:  What?  Whale what?

Me:  Whale penis.

Mom:  Did you say whale penis?  I’m sitting on whale penis?

Me:  Yes, whale penis.  I could have gone with the snake.  But everyone has snake.  Whale penis is much more exotic don’t you think?

Mom:  Stop the car please, I’ll walk.  I am not sitting on whale penis.

Maybe I should go for the crocodile.  After I make my first billion.

It’s National Orgasm Day! Have you had yours?

Don’t you just love days like this?  An excuse to have an orgasm!  Not that we should need one, but with everyone’s lives being so damned hectic it’s our sex lives that are often the first things to suffer.  We’re dealing with deadlines and long hours at work, commutes, raising children, running errands like groceries and banking, carpooling the kids to their various activities, house cleaning, yard work, looking after ageing parents, cooking, financial pressures, job insecurities and I’m sure I’ve forgotten a gazillion other things that go on in our day.  So is it any wonder that when we turn off the lights and crawl into bed all we want to do is sleep?  And if you’re a woman like me, you don’t even get to do that.  The dreaded ‘lists’ invade your sleep time, reminding you of all the things you do NOT want to forget to do tomorrow.   Foreplay? Orgasm?  Maybe I can pencil that in tomorrow????  So here’s me, telling you……JUST DO IT!!!  (and definitely do it more than once a year!)

And just in case you need a little inspiration or something to get you in the mood to have a little fun, we’ve put together a list of some very helpful items (wink, wink) and a few suggestions on how to use them.   And of course, if you can send the kids to grandma’s for the night, by all means, do so!   So what are you doing on this National Orgasm Day??

Get in the mood

Razzle vs Fifty Shades of Grey

British men are ‘Fifty Shades of Mortified’

While most people are tired of hearing about everything ‘Fifty Shades’ (including myself) I ran across an article in the Telegraph  this weekend that made my blood boil (and gave me a good laugh once my blood cooled).

Written by William Sitwell, the entire article is about how men are negatively affected by Fifty Shades of Grey and  by women who have the audacity to read it in ‘public’ with the covers showing.  He quotes colleagues and friends thoughts on the book with comments including:

 “A slow dread crept over me – and a large degree of embarrassment.”

“I was on the Tube this morning and couldn’t help but notice that the woman sitting next to me was reading a book on her Kindle. I couldn’t help but notice it because the text was enormous, and it was filthy.”

He then goes on to say:

You see, we men are embarrassed, mortified, squirming, enraged, even, at what’s going on. How would you mummy-porn addicts feel if I hopped on the bus brandishing a copy of Big Ones or Razzle or Knave (or whatever these magazines are called, because, honestly, I wouldn’t know)

And then he asks why women’s porn is acceptable and men’s isn’t .  He cautions men not to read it because they’ll be confused and dismayed unless they’re men who have everything Christian Grey has. He concludes by telling men that if they want to ‘subtly’ get their women to stop reading the book they should invite their mothers over……unless of course their mothers are reading said book.

So here’s my thoughts for all men, British or otherwise, who are embarrassed, mortified, squirming……

  1. If you’re nosy and rude enough to be looking over my shoulder and reading whatever it is I’m reading, you deserve what you get.
  2. If you see no difference between
                                               this                                              and this
Razzle vs Fifty Shades of Grey

          well….there’s no help for you I’m afraid.  Go ahead and take your copy of Razzle on the bus with           you.  Seriously, I’d love to see that.

       3.  While you’ve been falling asleep in front of the television for years, we’ve been reading the likes of Harold Robbins, Erica Jong and Sandra Brown.

4.   If you’re confused and dismayed by a character you encounter in an erotic fiction book, how do you live with yourself after watching a porn flick when you realize you aren’t  ‘joe stud’?  (And don’t even try and tell me you’ve never watched one)

5.  What’s in it for men??  Are you kidding me?  What’s in it for women while you’re perusing Razzle???

Here’s the thing.  The internet has created a sexual revolution.  Women have access to porn, toys, forums, media and social networking.  They can shop for pleasure goods both online and in brick and mortar stores that are no longer the tacky, cheesy, neon-lit back alley enterprises catering to men.  They can read and share with other women around the world and get answers to their questions, share their stories, laugh, cry and get excited about trying something new.  They’re learning about themselves, their bodies, what gives them pleasure.  Women around the world are taking control of their sexuality, and it’s about damn time.

What’s in it for men?  When your wife/girlfriend/lover comes home one day after reading something erotic with a shopping bag full of goodies and she can’t wait to get you into bed to try something new with you….well…….you tell me….what’s in for you?

The Fifty Shades of Grey Revolution

As women around the globe are reading Fifty Shades of Grey and then shopping for the erotic products used in the book, the media and bloggers alike are speculating as to why women are suddenly interested in ‘mommy porn’ and bondage.  Personally, I don’t see anything sudden about it.  Women have been reading erotica for centuries and if satin blindfolds and bondage ties weren’t already hot items there wouldn’t be so many different brands manufacturing them.  What’s been changing in recent years is women taking control of their sexuality and being more vocal about it.

As pleasure goods and erotica for women become more mainstream, and the taboo surrounding a women owning her sexuality lessens, women are  taking control of what gives them pleasure.  And with on line and brick and mortar erotic shops having evolved into more women friendly environments, they’re enjoying the freedom to shop and purchase items they’ve fantasized about, read about, desired.  And the Fifty Shades trilogy is giving them all kinds of new ideas.  And they’re talking about it.

As critics call Fifty Shades of Grey a ‘literary nightmare’ all I can say is ‘I don’t watch porn hoping to see an Oscar winner, and I don’t read erotica hoping to read a Nobel prize winner’.  It’s entirely about the ‘hotness factor’, and this book is steamy.  And if it gives a woman the desire to turn what might have become stale or routine sex she’s been having with her partner into a steamy, hot, light bondage session, then yay!  If all the talk and openness about the trilogy is inspiring women to take control of their pleasure and read or shop for things that turn them on, they yay again!

So we want to know……have you read Fifty Shades of Grey or are you planning to?  (or planning not to) If you’ve read it, did you enjoy it?  Did it give you any new ideas or thoughts or inspire you to try something new?  Bought any whips lately? 🙂

Facebook Has A Problem With Women

UPDATE:  24hrs after having my account disabled after posting this photo on my facebook profile, facebook has restored my account with an apology.  Much thanks to all who read this, and shared it, here and on facebook and twitter.

I am stunned today.  And appalled.  And extremely disappointed in Facebook.  My personal account was disabled this morning, within one hour of posting a picture with a caption.  No warnings, no messages, no takedown of the picture…they just ‘disabled’ me for posting a picture they deem violates their Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.  Really???  This is the posting…..

Because sometimes we need a little reminder:

A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?”

The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:

“Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.

Mermaids do not exist.

But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?

Without a doubt, I’d rather be a whale.

At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: “How amazing am I ?! ”

(The girl on the picture is French model Tara Lynn)

My account was disabled for this??  Are you kidding me?  No pornography here, no breasts showing, no private parts showing.  No harm to anyone, no hateful speech…nothing.   It brings to mind all the recent take downs and account disabling over mothers having pictures of herself breastfeeding her baby.  No nipples showing, just the roundness of the breast with a baby.  Maybe I’m wrong, but I fail to see what is offensive about my posting, or about a mother breast feeding her child.  Facebook is out of control.

Getting my personal account reinstated likely won’t happen, or if it does, it will take months.  Thankfully, I have my husband as an admin on my business page so he can do the updates for that one.

I am asking for your help.  If you feel there is nothing wrong with the post I made, please share this blog.  And if you can, visit our business page at facebook and post on the wall that the owners page should be reactivated.  Post it on your own walls.  Post it on twitter.  The posting I made is in support of women, all women, in a time when magazines, movies, and any form of media play on our subconscious minds with visions of what a ‘perfect body’ should be and how anyone less than perfect needs to strive to be perfect.

All women are beautiful, regardless of size, shape, color…breast feeding or not.

Erotic Artist Showcase – Circe’s Art

Last month we decided to add a new feature to our website that would showcase different erotic artists. There are so many beautiful forms of erotic art and an amazing number of talented artists that we just had to have an outlet to share them.

We were so very fortunate to have Joelle Circe contact us when we put out a call asking for artists who would like to be showcased.  Her work is beautiful.  When I first browsed her paintings I was drawn to ‘Burlesque’ but as I started working on the page that would feature her work, I kept going back to ‘Peek-A-Boo’.  This has now become my favorite.

If I Were Santa

I received this in an email this morning and thought ‘I need a rockin’ Santa!’.  Merry Christmas everyone!


If I were a rockin’ Santa,
You know what I’d do?
I’d dump the silly gifts
That are given to you.

I’d deliver some things
Just inside your front door —
Things you have lost,
But treasured before.

I’d give you back all
Your maidenly vigor,
And to go along with it,
A neat, tiny figure;

Then restore the old color
That once graced your hair
Before rinses and bleaches
Took residence there.

I’d bring back the shape
With which you were gifted,
So things now suspended
Need not be uplifted.

I’d draw in your tummy
And smooth down your back
Till you’d be a dream
In those tight fitting slacks!

I’d remove all your wrinkles
And leave only one chin,
So you wouldn’t spend hours
Rubbing grease on your skin.

You’d never have flashes
Or queer dizzy spells,
And you wouldn’t hear noises
Like ringing of bells.

No sore aching feet,
And no corns on your toes
No searching for spectacles
When they’re right on your nose.

Not a shot would you take
In your arm, hip or fanny
From a doctor who thinks
You’re a nervous old granny.

You’d never have a headache,
So no pills would you take.
And no heating pad needed
Since your muscles won’t ache.

Yes, if I were Santa,
You’d never look stupid.
You’d be a cute little chick
With the romance of a cupid.

I’d give a lift to your heart
When those wolves start to whistle,
And the joys of your heart
Would be light as a thistle.

But alas! I’m not Santa.
I’m simply just me,
The matronest of matrons
You ever did see.

I wish I could tell you
All the symptoms I’ve got,
But I’m due at my doctor’s
For an estrogen shot.

Even though we’ve grown older
This wish is sincere:
Merry Christmas to you!
And a Happy New Year!
