Playing in the Snow [fpf17]

 

 

I was playing around with my glass dildo. I was trying to come up with some new ideas for creative photos. I went outside, trying to get some reflective shots. Out of all the photos took, this was the only one that I actually liked. I just added an overlay and a frame. I feel creatively spent. Like there is no creative juice flowing. I think because I am focusing on other stuff. Once that’s all over I’m gonna focus on my website, blogging and photography. Screw those other photo social media sites I belong too.

Tickle Me Purple [Sex Toy Review]

I won a Glas Purple G-Spot Tickler back at Christmas via thefrisky.com’s Sexmas Giveaway.

I remember back in the late 90’s visiting my best friend. He was good for turning me on to new things in the sex world. That was the time when he was selling glass dildo’s in his campground general store. I had never seen them before. I thought wow, those are so cool looking. Some were really eye-catching. Why was he keeping them in the deep freeze? He pulled one out, handed it to me. Brrr. I tried to imagine how it would feel inside me. I could only think of my experience with a popsicle on a hot summer day.

When I had seen that I won a Glas dildo I was excited, I would finally be able to know how it feels first hand. I will admit that I was fearful of the word “glass.” I imagined the worst. What if it breaks while I’m using it? What if I drop it? It just might hurt. I thought about how hard & stiff, being handcrafted glass that there would be no give to the product, as in flexibility.

All these thoughts were swept away after my first use of the Purple G-Spot Tickler. I am now a glass dildo fan.

Out of curiosity I looked up the price for this specific glass dildo.  I found various prices ranging from as low as $12.95 to as high as $33.99, depending on the website. This dildo is simple. There are no seams in the glass, completely smooth. On the outside of the box it states that it is “one of a kind. Handblown, Handmade and Handcrafted.” There are no patterns, no designs, just a very simple glass dildo. There is only a curve at the tip to stimulate your g-spot and a large ball at the bottom for a comfortable grip, which I really do like.

The box that it came is simple, with just a few features on the bottom of the box. The dildo itself was wrapped in a protective foam to prevent breaking during the delivery process.

This dildo measures approximately 7 inches in length with one inch width. This dildo is made of  borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass can withstand two different temperatures at the same time. It does not expand like regular glass does. This type of glass is able to withstand quick temperature change. So, this dildo can be used with cold or hot temperatures. Imagine the possibilities. This glass dildo weighs approximately 8 ounces. It does feel heavy in the hand if a person isn’t used to glass products such as this one.

My favorite feature about this glass dildo is that it is hypoallergenic and is extremely easy to clean afterwards. I have used soap & water. I have used alcohol wipes to clean it. Soaked it in hot water. I have towel dried it, air-dried it. Placed it back into the protective foam wrap, stored in its original box.

I enjoyed using this dildo. Starting out fearful of a glass sex toy, I’m looking forward to experiencing more glass dildos. This toy has provided me with several orgasms. I would recommend this product. I’m glad that I have it in my growing collection of sex toys. It is one that I like to use more often. This glass dildo definitely tickled my g-spot.

Glas Purple G-Spot Tickler

I Won

While I was in the Big D over the Christmas Holiday, visiting my Manchild since he was unable to drive up north. It was Christmas Day, just leaving the Dallas area, while in the backseat of the Manchild’s car. I’m occupying myself with my iPhone (of course) checking email. I read an email from thefrisky.com. I like reading The Frisky because they do have some interesting articles. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Scrolling through it I see a contest to win “The 25 Days of Sexmas.” I figured “WTF, I’m bored & I never win anything away.” I continued to read the rules, simple enough. The Frisky was just hosting a contest. I double checked the time, I think I entered with like 45 minutes to spare.

On the day I was driving back to Illinois from Texas, got the email requesting verification of my address. WHAAAA?!

Who sponsored this contest? Unboundbox.com

I had seen the site before, stumbling onto through twitter or a blog. I wasn’t totally unfamiliar with the site. I was really excited, concerned when my prizes hadn’t arrived yet. I thought, did I miss the delivery at some point? God, I hope no one stole the box of the front porch. Shit, that would be just my luck, ya know?! Winning a box full of sex toys and some kid steals it! UGH.

Concerned. I decided to email both Kathryn Oldenburg (thefrisky) & Sarah Jayne (unbound). Both ladies were great. I received the first email on the 27th of December, 2013 from Ms. Oldenburg. The second email was received on the 31st of December from Ms Jayne. She stated that she would be mailing out the prize package this week. On January 14th (2014) I decided I better email both ladies to find out if perhaps I had missed the package in the mail.  Both women got back to me rather quickly, which was great. However, in the back of my mind I wonder if I would have never mentioned not receiving the prize that they might not have sent it out.

20140127-091127.jpgMs. Jayne mentioned that due to the polar vortex that had hit most of the United States, the mail was behind. Sarah tossed in a few extra tubes of lube, along with Erin Hoodini’s specialty bondage rope. She was kind enough to inform me that she was still waiting on the Maia Wicked Wireless to arrive. In the course of emailing back & forth the Maia arrived and Sarah was dropping it in the mail the next day. So, it should be arriving tomorrow (1/21/2014).

As of 1/27/2014 I have yet to receive this product mentioned in the email to the left. It was also part of the winning prize package. I will not be emailing them asking where it is, I just won’t be recommending a positive experience with this company.

 

20140127-091143.jpgThere were only a few things that I noticed about this. That the box in which it came in was slightly larger and Ms. Jayne apologized for the over-sized box. I did notice that the “pasties” were not inside their protective cover. It looked like possibly items were tossed into the box last minute.  I am pretty sure that it was last minute. I’m pretty sure that perhaps there was no intention on shipment of winning prizes. I’m just surprised that a company like this would even conduct business like this, knowing that they are building a reputation.

I mentioned to Sarah that I would probably blog about this. Can I somehow not blog about it?!

And of course I will add my reviews of the products as I use them. I think it will add to my “resume” of product review items.  I need the experience, practice and something to review. I think this will work. Thanks again to Kathryn & Sarah. And thanks to the universe for tipping in my favor for once.
