Yogasms?

October 3rd, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

I have recently fallen in love with Yoga.  I took it a handful of times 7 or 8 years ago, I found it to be a bit uncomfortable and it just wasn’t for me.  At one of my crankier moments, in a fit of stress and anxiety, someone told me to go take Yoga.  I’m pretty sure it was their way of telling me I was being a bitch, but it isn’t as if it wasn’t true.  I took myself to Yoga the very next day, the day after that and a few days after that.   I love Yoga.

Yogasms

I work out everyday.  I push myself.  I sweat.  I can do close to 80 push-ups in 2 minutes (not the wussy knee push-ups).  Yoga is different.  I connect with my body in different ways.  I feel rejuvenated and a bit more alert after each class.  What I have yet to experience (in class) is an orgasm or the “Yogasm” if you will.

When I came across this article in Jezebel I immediately clicked and read and then went to their source, The Daily Beast, to read a little more.

“One of yoga’s goals is to strengthen the muscles in and around the genitalia, or the mula bandha. It’s like doing advanced kegels, but with an instructor’s guidance and the implementation of specific breathing techniques. Ideally, a yogi engages mula bandha throughout a majority of his or her practice, which is equivalent to heavy weightlifting for the genitals.”

Much like doing Kegel exercises, your yoga practice and strengthening your mula bandha can help you have better orgasms outside of the yoga studio.  Even if you aren’t hit with a surprise O in the middle of downward dog, your sex life could greatly improve overall.  Men can get in on the yoga sex goodness as well.  They may not buckle in ecstasy while opening up the heart, but they can enjoy a better sex life.

The key to engaging mula bandha is to isolate the perineum, a crucial area of sexual pleasure for women and men, according to South African tantric master Alan Finger, founder of ISHTA (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda) Yoga. When a man draws his sexual energy in, and up toward his navel, says Finger, he increases his ability to prolong his stamina in the bedroom.

I for one can’t figure out why one wouldn’t want to get in on the yoga goodness. Improve your mind body connection AND have better orgasms.  I’m in.  If I do ever experience the “Yogasm” I will definitely report back.  In the mean time, read the articles in Jezebel and The Daily Beast.

Why You Might Want to Buy a Cock Ring For Your Guy

September 16th, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

I’m not going to waste time with a fluffy intro.  Let’s get to the business of why you might want to buy a cock ring for your guy.

Neoprene Cock RingHe’ll last longer.  First and foremost, cock rings prolong erection time because they restrict the blood flow.  This is ideal for anyone who experiences premature ejaculation or if you just want to keep the party going a little longer than usual.

He’ll get (a little) harder and bigger.  They make the cock harder, leaner and meaner.  They allow for a raging hardness and plumpness that you’ll both enjoy.  This means a slight temporary increase in size.  Fun!  Be careful though, too much of a size increase means that the cock ring is too tight and could become too difficult to pull off.  Take that ish off immediately!

He’ll have better orgasms.  Much to his pleasure, cock rings also contribute to more intense and often longer orgasms. Some claim their orgasms last up to a minute!  The holding back allows his orgasm to be more pleasurable and can lead to increased splooge volume!  Who doesn’t want to have the best orgasm possible?

Green Cock Ring

Choosing the right cock ring:

I always advise against using metal cock rings.  It’s just too hard (heh) to gage what size you need.  Obviously metal doesn’t stretch, and if you realize that it is too small by the time he is too hard, this could mean a trip to the hospital.  Some expert cock ring users can get away with it, well congrats to them. If you’re not an expert, just keep the metal away from your cock.

Go with something flexible or that has some give at the very least.  Rubber is super stretchy.  100% silicone is less stretchy, but has a nice give and is body friendly for both of you (won’t cause any skin irritation).  Leather is another option for those who like to dress their cocks up a bit in fine Italian clothing.  This type usually comes with snaps, so even if the leather doesn’t stretch it can be easily removed.Vibrating Cock Ring by Tantus

You want the cock ring to fit snug when flaccid, but not squeezing the life out of it.  If it starts to hurt or feel cold at any time, take it off!  Feel free to use some lube to help get it on and take it off.  You might get pretty excited the first time you experience the magical powers that belong to the cock ring.

Do not leave the cock ring on for longer than 30 minutes.

I know, you’ll both be excited about boner time, but remove it for his safety.

Want a little buzz that you’ll both enjoy?  Try a vibrating cock ring!

Happy cock ring shopping!

Joya Sphere

September 2nd, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

My interest is totally peaked by the Joya Sphere.  Perhaps it’s that Yin Yang symbol pulls on my 60′s/90′s lovin’ heart strings, but either way it looks like a pretty neat vibrator.  The Sphere actually includes 2 vibrators, so you can share with your partner keep them both to your self.  Joya creates awesome body friendly products and I’d love to give this one a whirl.

Magic Mike

Magic Mike

Thanks Ministry of Gossip!

I’m pretty excited about the up coming indie flick, “Magic Mike”.  It is a film about male strippers in Tampa (my college town).  It is actually inspired by Channing Tatum’s (also playing main character) experience.  I’m sure there will be some dark moments in this flick, but I’m definitely looking forward to checking out the super hunky cast.  It’s going to be a thing a magic and wonder.  It’s going to be filled with the stuff that dreams are made of.  It’s going to star these hot dudes:

Joe Manganiello (hot wolf man from True Blood), Alex Pettyfer (some hot blonde I’ve never heard of but am sure as shit glad I have now), Matt Bomer (from the 2006 Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Matthew McConaughey (the man that will be hot until his last dying day) and Channing Tatum.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll definitely be spending $10 on THAT.

Slutwalk Philadelphia

August 5th, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

Slutwalk Philadelphia is happening tomorrow!  If you’re in the area, I suggest you join us.  Not familiar?  A Toronto police officer said that women should avoid dressing likes sluts in order to avoid getting raped.  Wha?  Really?  It’s the clothes that get you raped?  Allllllright.  So the rapist isn’t to blame? Hmmm.  This has sparked protests and awareness around the world and the official Slutwalk has come to my town.

This is a corporate blog, so I don’t get to serious when it comes to social issues as I do in my “real life”.  But, I had to mention this and do my part to spread the word.  You can go to the Facebook page to get the details.  Be there and let your slut pride fly!

Tantus Little Secret – Little Kiss

July 29th, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

From Tantus’s line of Little Secrets, the Little Kiss is cute, discrete and bright pink.

This is a small simple bullet vibrator, free of bells and whistles.  It isn’t supposed to twirl, thrust, put on a laser light show or make you a grilled cheese after you orgasm.  If you’re someone who needs all of these things from your sex toy, don’t buy this one!  If you like basic toys that are easy to travel with, won’t break the bank (still built to last), are made from body safe materials, this is ideal for you.Tantus Little Kiss

Here is the basic info:

Vibration intensity: Medium

Noise Factor: Low

Batteries: N-1 (inlcuded)

Length: 3.75 inches

Width: A little over 1 inch

Material: Sleeve – Silicone, Bullet – Hard Plastic

The standard bullet has a pointed tip and an easily removable sleeve.  I preferred using it with the sleeve (like the texture), but you can definitely use it without.  The mid-level vibrations transfer well through the silicone all the way to the thin pointed tip.  A light flickering sensation is created, which is ideal for anyone who likes pinpointed stimulation.  For me, this is fun for warm up, but prefer using the shaft of the bullet when it’s time to get serious.

This isn’t my go-to toy when I’m looking for vibration-only stimulation.  Wand vibrators still remain near and dear to my heart when it comes to that.  I do bust the Little Kiss out whenever I need a vibrating addition to dildo time.  When penetration is involved, the medium buzz that the this Little Secret offers is exactly what I need.

One thing that has frustrated me in the past about egg and bullet vibrators is that they tend to not have much of a shelf life.  Some crack right away or just stop working long before the batteries ever have a chance to die.  The Little Kiss is solid and well made.  The battery cap fits snug and no cracking occurs when applying pressure.  The silicone sleeve is sturdy as well.  I haven’t had any problems when pulling it off or putting it back on.  Lesser sleeves often tear as soon as you pry them off the toy.

If you’re looking for as super powered life changing vibrator, this isn’t for you.  If you’re in the market for a simple and discrete vibrator that will last, you should definitely consider this one.

This Ain’t Lady Gaga XXX. Sure, I’ll watch it.

July 22nd, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

I’m not a huge fan of porn parodies. I don’t necessarily hate them and it can be fun to watch characters from my favorite TV shows and movies do it, but I’m not overly impressed with the copying of ideas.  Not that I’m offended by it, I just don’t think it takes much creative effort.  If you’re going to spend a lot of money on a porn to actually have a decent production value and bother to give people lines, then come up with some new for crying out loud!  Regardless of what I think, the porn industry is steadily rolling out the XXX spoofs and there is no end in site.  Sooo, I might as well watch them.

After all that bitching, I have to say that I am intrigued by the Hustler’s This Ain’t Lady Gaga XXX that is scheduled to be released on July 26th because  1. It’s a porno with singing and dancing involved.  2. I’m a Gaga fan.  Yes, she it out of control with the ridiculous (often stupid) outifts, interviews, etc, but I don’t care.  3. The performer playing Lady Gaga, Helly Mae Hellfire, has a rockin’ body and can totally move.  I also have to agree with Fleshbot that she has the coolest name ever.

Here is the first trailer that was released.  I definitely look forward to watching movie in its entirety.

Sqweelers

July 15th, 2011 by Ginger Leigh

A while back I reviewed the Sqweel from Love Honey.  It’s a unique little toy that has received mixed reviews – some people love it, some are disappointed.  In a sense, the Sqweel is supposed to simulate oral sex.  It has a wheel of 10 tongues that spins and laps your clit or whatever body part you so choose to put it on.  It doesn’t exactly mimic oral sex, but it does offer up that same sustained/ lingering feeling that you get when someone goes down on you.  I’m not go to re-review this product, but I wanted to give a little back story for those of you who weren’t terribly familiar with the product.

For those who were a little disappointed, a few accessories were created to spruce it up a bit.  Love Honey created a few different wheels and a case that allows you to attach a vibrator.  The wheels create different intensity and pressure levels.

Sqweeler Pearl

The Sqweeler Pearl is for those prefer a “firmer texture” than that of the original Sqweel.  This is awesome because whenever you press the original against your clit, naturally the wheel just stops.  I’d like to see if the Pearl really satisfies the need for pressure when using the Sqweel.  While I rather enjoy the Sqweel, that is definitely one area I’d like to see an improvement in.

Sqweeler Wave

The Sqweeler Wave has a medium firmness, but what excites me about this one is the 2 different types of stimulation it offers.  It has a row of pointed tongues in the middle and two solid wavering wheels on the outside.  I am totally curious about the different sensations happening at the same time.  Plus, I am all about labia stimulation, which is what I imagine the wavering wheels to glide along.

Sqweeler Tingle

The Sqweeler Tingle is the softest of all the accessories.  It has 3 rows of mini tongues and one solid outer wave.  I’m not sure how I feel about the one wave on the outside.  Part of me thinks it could be awesome to increase the stimulation on one side of your labia, part of me thinks it could be a little frustrating.  I’m still down to give it a whirl, though!

Sqweevee

Last but not least is the Sqweevee.  This is an actual case that allows to use your Sqweel with a vibrator.  I’d be interested in giving this a try as well.  One of my complaints was that I was unable to use a dildo at the same time.  I’m a little bummed that you are limited to using a dildo (or vibrator) that is 3 to 3.5 inches in circumference (less than 1 inch – 1 1/4 inch in width).  I prefer my penetrable to be at least 1 1/2 inches wide.  Even still, I’ll give it a whirl.

Since the Sqweel comes apart so easily, the accessories are super easy to use and clean.  I definitely want to get my hands on these little guys.  When the time comes, I will totally report back to you!  If you have already tried them, I’d love to hear what you think about them.
