    The Wench Reviews: Seduce Me Rabbit Clit Teaser

    Do you know what I hate? Pepto-Bismol pink. Do you know what else I hate? This toy. Coincidentally, this toy is Pepto-Bismol pink and I think that was the universes first sign to run. But did I listen? No. No, I did not.  But my hate isn’t unfounded though. I don’t hate the toy exclusively because it’s pink. That would be ridiculous, and ridiculous I am not. (Most of the time.)  I hate the bullet vibrator that slides into the silicone bunny sleeve that vibrates in all the wrong places. I hate the little bunny ears that are supposed to “flicker” against my clit. I hate the batteries this toy takes (three whole cell button batteries). Honestly,…

    Not always a safe high: Masturbation & My Mental Illness

    Did you know that an orgasm is the biggest non-drug blast of dopamine available?

This is a problem I deal with personally — the negative impact frequent masturbation can have on one’s psyche. I…

    Discourse & Denial: An Analysis of Critical Discourse in the Kink Community

    As a community, we are all aware of the spaces in which sex and ethics intersect. We talk extensively about issues of consent and seek to educate others about the varying shades of the word “no”. We talk about practicing safe and consensual sex. We discuss respect for our partners and the necessity of open communication and active listening. But how do we approach sex ethics in kink-specific discourse? The vast majority of kinky individuals know and accept the very basic ethical tenets acknowledged and taught within our communities. We know to look for consent and to graciously accept when consent is not given or revoked, without pressuring or pushing the…

    The Wench Reviews: Sola Hop

    When Peepshow Toys gave me a chance to try out the Sola Hop I was skeptical. I had seen rabbit vibrators in porn, in stores, and of course in reviews. Each of those things had a different reaction. In porn, it looked great like it was the next best thing since sliced bread. In the store it was a bit weird– I couldn’t figure out how it would fit my anatomy, and in reviews, there was always mixed emotions (some would love it, some would hate it!). It was the time I figured out a rabbit vibrator for myself. It was the time I spread my labia and fly. *flap flap*? I…
