Blogiversary: Ninja Sexology Turns One!

Cakeninja

One year ago today, I published the first post on Ninja Sexology.  I’ll freely admit that I had no idea what I was doing.  I was inspired to join the blogging community, so I got a domain and jumped in with both feet.  My “strategy” was simple… start writing, see what happens, learn as you go and have fun.

Have I thought this through thoroughly?

Have I thought this through thoroughly?

365 days later, it feels like that plan worked out pretty well for me.  I reviewed twenty-one sex toys and two books.  I wrote three erotica stories, including “First Surrender” which won me a $500 prize.  And I wrote 37 posts about other topics near and dear to my heart, like using sex toys with a partner, the amazing world of fantasy toys, and removing the stigma and fear surrounding the use of larger sex toys.

Throughout this year, the support and friendship of my fellow bloggers helped me to grow.  So many of you shared tips about WordPress, or put me in touch with toy company reps or generally cheered me on when I was feeling frustrated.  I’m a little bit afraid to mention names in case I miss someone, but I’m going to try anyway.  Special thanks go to Dizzygirl, Naughty Reenie, Millennia Toy Box, Mr. Will, Property of Potter, TJ, Bex, Epiphora, Dangerous Lilly and Beck for helping me find my way as a blogger, and for helping me feel like I fit in here.  I also want to thank Raving Sock Monkey, who has been my go-to fantasy toy guru since my days on the Bad Dragon Forums. And of course, Emmeline Peaches, who never fails to make me smile with her amazing art!

Besides my fellow bloggers, I need to recognize the awesome Twitter friends who (as of this post) don’t have blogs but are helpful, smart, funny and toy experts in their own right: @ImaGodiva, @Bitsen, @RynJ21 , @KellySi24841815 and @JennaNevada.  Follow these awesome folks if you aren’t doing so already!

I also had help and support from a few real life friends who have encouraged me while protecting my ninja secrets.  If you’re reading this, extra special thanks for being that rare connection between my divided spheres of existence.  I will forever appreciate your willingness to hear more about my private activities than you ever expected to know.

To my surprise, this little blog even got some recognition in its first year!

But most importantly, I’m continuing to learn from others, share my own experiences and get to know some incredible people.  I’m looking forward to the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit in August, where I hope to meet many of my new friends face to face for the first time!

To celebrate my blogiversary, I went on a little photography spree of my collection.  Behold, ALL OF THE SILICONE DILDOS!!!!! BGVAllDildos And now, a close up trip through the dildo forest… BGVDildoForest1 BGVDildoForest2 BGVDildoForest3 BGVDildoForest4 BGVDildoForest5 BGVDildoForest6 BGVDildoForest7 I was live tweeting my photography experience, and Dizzygirl suggested that I re-enact the original Tub Full O’Dicks collection shot… but this time with me in the tub too.  I thought about it, and suddenly the bathwater was running 1.  Here I am, soaking in a tub full of silicocks… Bathtub1 But it did get a little uncomfortable after awhile, and I found I preferred having more of my silicone toys next to or underneath me.

The Crotch Rocket makes an admirable fig leaf…

After that relaxing break, I rounded up the rest of my collection.  Like ALL THE VIBES!!!! BGVAlltheVibes Then all the glass, wood and metal toys… BGVGlassWoodMetal All the power tools… WP_20150216_074 And finally, all the “butt stuff”. BGVButtStuff So there you have it, a complete review of my toy collection!  Well, complete until those five toys I’m waiting for show up anyway… updating collection photos is a job that never ends!  I can’t wait to see what my second year of blogging brings.

Update: 2/17/15 – I FORGOT TO PUT MY NJOY ELEVEN IN THE NON-SILICONE PIC!!!  Going to need a do-over on that one…

    I appreciate the mentions. That’s quite a collection. Love the bathtub idea.

      Drying all the toys after kind of sucked, but the bath itself was awesome!

    Hey, scoot over, that tub looks big enough for more than just one (and dildo friends)!

    Delicious pics. Congratulations on one year and thanks for the lasting entertainment and info. Etc.

      The tub is nice and big…one of the main reasons we bought this house! Thanks for dropping in. 🙂

    CONGRATS!!!!!!!! Now stick around for a few more years =)

    That silicone dildo collection is nothing short of amazing. You’re like my opposite – I have tons of vibrators, but very few dildos.

      Hey Austin! I’ll be keeping busy… got a review coming up for the Wraith from Exotic-Erotics’ High Fantasy line, plus I snagged a Cody Large from their Valentine’s Day sale. I’m going to run out of room for me in the bathtub! 🙂

    Having just launched my own blog, this post is encouraging & inspiring! I DEFINITELY don’t know what I’m doing. 😉

    Your collection is awesome. Have you posted about how you store it all? I notice one of my favorite attachments on your trusty Hitachi there!

      Yep…storage is covered in my “Stealth Sex Toys” post. It includes what I believe to be the only link to Harbor Freight Tools on a sex blog. 🙂
