Blogiversary 3 and the Great Dildo Weigh-In Contest

Yes, it’s that time of year again.  The weather is gray and slushy, the Valentine’s Day candy has all gone on clearance sale, and I’m celebrating another year as a sex blogger.  As per usual, this blogiversary post will have retrospective look at the past 365 days, accompanied by updated photos of my ever-expanding sex toy collection.  And this year, I’m also doing my very first prize giveaway…read on for the details!

Writing

Without a doubt, the post I’m proudest of this year is my guide to shopping for sex toys on Etsy.  It took a long time to pull together and needs frequent updates, but it is a true labor of love.  When I started this blog, introducing people to new and unique sex toys was a big part of my motivation.  Hitting ‘publish’ on the Etsy guide felt like a major milestone on my path.

Review-wise, I definitely had the most fun with the Pokemoan collection from Geeky Sex Toys.  Someday when I have a lot of free time (haha), I’d love to make trading cards for other sex toys in my collection.  And of my personal posts, the one about Magical Penis Theory (and the goofball pic I made for it) definitely stands out.

Twitter Love

Blogiversary 4000 followers

To my great joy, I managed to reach 4,000 Twitter followers just before my blogiversary.  I will never cease to be amazed and tickled that so many people take interest in my tweets about odd sex toy adaptations, inspirational quotes, ridiculous and silly things that happen in my house, tales of raising feminist daughters, musings that make no sense, and the occasional dildo princess.

Other Highlights

Woodhull was, of course, incredible.  Gathering with the Blog Squad and living in a fun, sex-positive world for those few days a year gives me life.  I’m already looking forward to this year’s trip, hoping to meet up with even more folks from the blogging community.  I was also honored to earn a place on Molly’s list of the Top 100 Sex Bloggers.  While there are many lists and awards out there, this one means the most to me.  Molly puts an incredible amount of time and effort into this project, and if you are looking for sex blogs to follow, you should check out her list!

Some Favorite Dildos

Shouldwooda 001 and Hole Punch Chewie

Chewie and 001

Two of my favorite dildo discoveries of the past year are Chewie from Hole Punch Toys, and the 001 from Lumberjill Leisurecrafts.  Chewie is a semi-realistic dual density dildo that is basically the perfect shape for my body.  There will be a review forthcoming in which I extol its many virtues.  The 001 started out as a custom order gone awry, but hard work and craftsmanship transformed it into my G-spot’s new best friend.

New Toy Companies

I always love seeing new toy makers on the scene, but two of them stood out to me.  First, there’s Funkit Toys, run by excellent human Kenton (whom I had the pleasure of meeting at Woodhull).  In addition to making fantastic puns, Kenton crafts cleverly designed modular toys in clear silicone with swirls of color.  I’m currently testing the Swat (paddle), Swell (slim dildo/paddle handle), and Rhino (thick, ridged dildo/paddle handle) and I will have a review up soon.

Funkit Toys

In the world of fantasy toys, Twin Tail Creations  is making some silicone magic.  I’m particularly enamored of their Avian design, Cortez.  The velvety smooth finish on their toys is unique, semi-matte without being extremely grabby.  I also love that they’re always looking for user feedback/input on their designs and putting what they learn into practice.

Good Vibes

Blogiversary Vibrators

My sex toy collection has always been dildo-focused, but this year added more vibrators to the mix.  Happily, many of the new arrivals made a strong positive impression.  The We-Vibe Rave, Fun Factory Tiger, Iroha Kushi, and L’Amourose Prism V are all regularly kept charged and handy because they rock.

Blogiversary - wand vibes

The Power Tools

I also seem to be developing a taste for wand vibes over the past year.  The Iconic Wand (recommended by Wand Queen Formidable Femme) is a new favorite, balancing size, shape and power beautifully.  For sheer aesthetic awesomeness combined with serious power, I love the Doxy Die Cast.  It was my go-to “quick orgasm between sessions” vibe at Woodhull.  And I couldn’t call myself a connoisseur of unusual sex toys without acquiring the Tokidoki Unicorn Wand.

Yep, stole my kids’ toys for a photo shoot again…

The Hard Stuff

Steel, aluminum, glass, ceramic and wood…all unyielding and gorgeous.  This year, I added some long-coveted Fucking Sculptures to my treasures, and discovered the magical creations of Woozy Wolf and Persian Palm.

The hard stuff

And now…ALL THE DILDOS!

Due to a small crack in the Dildo Tub, and my collection getting too large to effectively display in that setting, this year’s photos have moved to a new venue: The Dildo Couch.  Look at this glorious pile of silicone!

The best part?  That pic was taken partway through the dildo piling process.  Here’s the entire collection:

I don’t have as many toys as Epiphora’s mind-blowing sex toy closet, but I still think it’s impressive.  And here are some close-ups just for fun!

Blogiversary I Spy

Wanna play I Spy?

Now some of you (like the friend who helped me move all of that) may be wondering just how much all that silicone weighs.  With the help of a luggage scale and a lot of patience, I have determined the answer…but I can’t tell you yet!

The Great Dildo Weigh-In Contest (open to U.S. and Canada)

I can’t tell you because the answer is the key to my very first giveaway.  Take a guess at the total weight of all the silicone items in the picture below in pounds and ounces.  The winner will be the person who comes closest to the actual weight without going over.

How much do they weigh? Take a guess!

In the event of a tie, there are two tiebreaker questions.  First, guess the weight of all these Tantus toys:

Tantus dildos

The Tantus Weigh-In

Second, take a stab at guessing the weight of my heaviest dildo (for added challenge, I’m not telling you which one that is).

If by some chance there are multiple folks who tie on all three questions, a winner will be selected at random from that group.

The winner gets a prize package including a Fun Factory Big Boss (with bonus toy box and zipper pouch), a Tantus Echo Handle and a bottle of Sliquid H2O to enjoy them with.
