Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe Tango

They don't call it the lipstick shaped mini for nothing.

Searching for a petite, portable toy that offers multiple modes of vibration? You might fancy the We-Vibe Tango—a lipstick shaped mini vibrator that’s a lot more powerful than it lets on. What you need to know right off the bat: The Tango is waterproof, eco-friendly, and rechargeable. Equipped with eight different vibration modes, the toy lasts up to 2 hours of play on a single charge and will only take 90 minutes to get back to full power. Its charging adapter is interchangeable with other We-Vibe products; so that means you can use the same power accessory for the Tango, the Salsa, the Touch, the We-Vibe 3, etc. Continue Reading →

Product Review: Renew Toy Revitalizing Cleanser

Our friends over at Good Vibrations recently sent me a new product to review. It’s like Christmas all over again! The Renew Toy Revitalization Cleanser is such a handy little thing! Forget about interrupting sexy times to run to the bathroom to clean a toy- a swift pump of this little spray bottle and you’re good to go! This comes in handy especially if you share a bathroom- I can’t tell you how awkward it is to try to clean a sex toy in a dormitory bathroom. You get all kinds of weird looks. Continue Reading →

Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe 3

We-Vibe 3

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Good Vibrations, I bring to you a brand new toy review! The We-Vibe 3 Couple’s Vibrator is the third in a fantastic series of partner toys. This tiny silicone vibrator offers dual stimulation in two ways (internal/external, you/partner), and packs quite a punch! With this third model, they’ve amped up the power of the vibrations and extended the battery life. What I love:

It’s just so cute! Continue Reading →

My Non-Thing Holiday Gift Guide

Recently, two friends and a few readers have asked if I’m planning to pull together a sex-themed gift guide. We’ve done this in the past and may do so again this year. I’ve heard from people who have bought the books, art, and sex toys we’ve suggested and their relationships and/or orgasms have been the better for it, so that’s encouraging. Certainly, books and sex toys can make a difference in a person or a couple’s sex life, relationship, or marriage – especially when they are chosen with thought. But, these days, my heart and mind are elsewhere. As holiday shopping emails arrive in my Inbox at an ever-feverish pace, my eyes scan for the “unsubscribe” link and I disengage from all but my favorite stores. Continue Reading →

Review of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts by Gary Chapman

I’ve heard a fair bit about The 5 Love Languages—usually recommendations and praise—so I decided to check it out for myself. My partner and I took turns reading it to each other on a fairly epic road trip, and we agreed that it was a generally useful and interesting read, though with a few drawbacks. Chapman’s premise, based on his years of experience as a marriage counselor, is that people intuitively gravitate toward one of five ways of expressing and interpreting love and affection. Couples run into problems when they’re speaking different love languages to each other, leading to complaints that “he/she doesn’t really love me.” In actuality, according to Chapman, they just need to learn each other’s love languages in order to start communicating in a way that will be received as loving and caring.

Toy Review: Dual Bliss Bullet Waterproof Vibrator

Thanks once again to our friends at Good Vibrations, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing another awesome product- the Dual Bliss Bullet Waterproof Vibrator.

With two separate bullets controlled by the same remote, the Dual Bliss allows you and your partner to enjoy some good vibrations at the same time. It’s waterproof capability makes it an awesome toy for a steamy shower or relaxing soak in the hot tub. Continue Reading →

Book Review: Perfect Combination by Jamillah and David Lamb

In their recent book Perfect Combination: Seven Key Ingredients to Happily Living & Loving Together, authors Jamillah and David Lamb describe “their recipe for romantic success” though anecdotes and insights they’ve gained from their decade-long marriage. Not only are the authors married to one another, they also work together as co-producers on their off-Broadway play Platanos Y Collard Greens. Throughout the book, they use cooking as a metaphor for building a successful relationship (hence the Key Ingredients in the title and the Dutch oven on the cover). While I found some of the examples a bit cheesy (e.g. 1 Cup of Forgiveness and 1 Tablespoon of Humor), overall I think authors did a fine job of making simple that which is often complicated.
