For your partner on the quest for the G Spot: the Gigi Vibe
So I got lucky and won a Gigi from Good Vibrations during their Vibrate the Vote campaign. Trust me, you want one of these around your bed.
It's rechargeable, which is really nice. It's got multiple speeds and settings- I really liked the most intense, steady vibration. I didn't find the buttons too hard to control, even with my fingers a bit slippery.
But what makes this toy amazing, and THE toy for anyone in your life looking for the big G, is how it feels inside. OMG. I don't squirt terribly easily but this toy was an automatic gush machine. WINNER. But bring a towel!
For the Queer Vintage Smut Lover: Bordello
I'm going to have to admit. I only saw snippets of this porn, because it was so hot that it encouraged me and the pretty boy I was with to, erm, get busy. So I can't give you my usual play by play.
What I CAN tell you is that the cast is totally hot, the sex is cock- or clit-hardening, and I loved watching the stars using potential murder weapons to get themselves and each other off. How great is that? April Flores, Billy Castro, James Darling, Tina Horn, Akira Raine..! It's excellent, it's queer, and it has just enough of a plot to be fun, not dragged down by it. If Bordello isn't necessarily to your taste, try "Speakeasy", another production by the same director, reviewed here.
For the Not-So-Vanilla Friend, or the Lover you Wish to Tempt: the Indulgence Kit
The massage candle offers an enjoyable warm soy wax that melts into a massage oil to spread on the skin, while allowing you to sample wax play. The blindfold is a soft way to introduce sensory deprivation into your play... and the vibrator? I'm sure you can find a use for that.
For the Hippie/Burner in Your Life: Earth Angel Hand-Powered Vibrator
We all know that horrible feeling- you're mid-wank, getting so...close...to...cumming... when your vibrator betrays you and gives up the ghost. Now you need to stop everything and dig out batteries, or plug it in for an hour. By the time everything's set again, you've lost interest. Or you're out at Burning Man and just don't want to bring a lot of disposable MOOP-y batteries... or a generator just so you can get off. What to do?
Never fear! This vibrator is like those windable flashlights, except it's a pretty intense toy. Mmmm. Perfect for that barefoot tree hugger in your life- or someone who can never seem to find those double As!
For the Shy Stripper, or the Tongue Tied Dirty Talker: Exhibitionism for the Shy
I have the original copy of this book and I think it's fantastic. The new version has a foreword by Nina Hartley, along with new interviews including Margaret Cho, Audacia Ray, and Violet Blue.
With Carol Queen's inimitable voice calmly guiding the reader through all sorts of things, from verbal filth to sex parties, even the shyest of exhibitionists will feel safer and more comfortable.
