I’M MOVING!

GUESS WHAT?

I just bought redhotrosaline.com!

Yes, I got a domain name!

WOOHOOOO!!!

So, to all my subscribers: I’m going to attempt to transfer over my subscribers to the new site. However, this may not work. Just in case, go subscribe to me on my new site: redhotrosaline.com!!

This new site is super cool for multiple reasons:

1. It’s easier to type in the URL!

2. It looks more professional!

3. If I so desire, I can now have advertising and affiliate links! (I may likely do this, since it costs $72 a year for the domain and hosting.)

4. It’s just cooler!

So GO SUBSCRIBE!

And by the way, thanks so much to all of y’all for reading and supporting me in my blogging adventures. I truly appreciate it!

Blogging update + the giveaway winner!!

So I’ve been super busy the past week: my boyfriend came into town last weekend (we tested some toys together!), and I had three exams and a project this week, but I’m excited to get back into blogging mode!

Here’s an update on my toy testing progress (this stuff is listed in no particular order, since I’m too lazy to do that):
Tantus Ryder Silicone Plug – 3/5 done
Wisteria Breeze Power Bullet G – 2/5 done
We-Vibe Salsa – 1/5 done
Lelo Luna Beads – 1/5 done
Spunk Lube Pure Silicone – 1/5 done
Njoy Pure Wand – 2/5 done
Sliquid Naturals Sea Water-Based Lubricant – 1/5 done (I have been using this with all the toys I’ve been testing, but the only time I’ve taken notes and evaluated it was for vaginal sex)
Liberator Bed Buckler Restraint Set – 1/2 done (since it’s just a restraint set, I feel like I don’t need to test it more than 2 or 3 times)

I’ll be publishing my Tantus Ryder review first, and then who knows what will be next?? Probably not the restraint set, since I don’t feel like testing that on my own, and my boyfriend won’t be back for about a month. Maybe the Luna Beads, since I don’t need to be horny to test them!

Oh, and the winner of the Ultimate Bondage Kit Giveaway is…… dv8! (Like deviate! *chuckles*). Congrats!!

Hope you all are having a great day!

More blog news!! *excitement*

Hey everyone!

My first review will be coming out soon! I am 3/5 done with testing the Tantus Ryder, and once I test it two more times, I will be compiling my notes and posting a review! Yay!

Also, I have recently received clarification from the WordPress support people, and it turns out I can participate in programs that give me sex toys in exchange for unbiased reviews, disclose this (as required by the FTC and my own conscience), and link back to the companies, as long as I don’t use affiliate links or have paid ads! WOOHOOOO!!! Once I pop out a few reviews of products I already own (so companies have samples of my writing), I’ll be applying to some review programs! I’m super excited about this!

After the Ryder, my next review will likely be Spunk Lube Pure Silicone (since I’ll hopefully be using it plenty with my boyfriend this weekend), or Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Bondage for Couples (since it’s a video and not a toy, I don’t think I’ll need to watch it 5 times to write a good review).

Oh, and I’m 1/5 done with testing the Njoy Pure Wand and 2/5 done with testing the Wisteria Breeze.

I can’t wait to start my reviewing adventure!!

Hope you all are having a great day!

Latest blog news!!

I have some exciting news for you all! (Multiple pieces of news, actually)

Firstly, the winner of the poll is…….. the Tantus Ryder Silicone Plug! Therefore, it will be the first item I review! It should be arriving in the mail tomorrow, and then I’ll begin the period of testing it and taking notes, and soon enough, I’ll be publishing a review of it! I’m super excited!

Also, I just won a bondage kit giveaway from Safeword Magazine! I don’t know what’s in this bondage kit (besides a t-shirt and tote), but I can’t wait to get it and find out! If anything in the kit is too extreme for my boyfriend and I (meaning if I can’t see us wanting to use it in the near future), I will have a GIVEAWAY so one of you lucky people can have it!! I would love to show my gratitude for my wonderful readers by giving away some sexy prizes for you all, so I hope Safeword includes some very kinky stuff!

Lastly, my boyfriend will be visiting in about 2 weeks, which is awesome because A) I miss him and his awesomeness, B) I miss being tied up, and C) he’s going to use my new Pure Wand on me! I can’t wait to see how the Pure Wand feels when he’s wielding it.

Yay! It’s an exciting day. Hope you all are having a great day too!

Notes on my first experience with the Njoy Pure Wand!

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF THE NJOY PURE WAND. These are my notes FOR MY FIRST EXPERIENCE with it, so they aren’t super eloquent. Or maybe they are. I can’t tell. It only took me about 10 minutes to type them. And if you’re confused as to why I’m addressing you all in my notes, that’s just how I take notes. Seriously. I do the same when I take notes in class.

Trial 1: (8:30pm-ish, 9/4/13)

I was so excited when I was finally able to pick my Pure Wand up from my dorm’s front desk that after admiring its beauty for a few minutes, I immediately took off my clothes, put down a towel (in case of squirting!) grabbed the wand, and started using it. (Even though I had homework I should have been doing!)

I started with the small end. I felt like I needed more lubrication, so I put a drop of Sliquid lube (great stuff!) on it and spread it around, and stuck the end into my vagina. It was cold at first, but it wasn’t unpleasant, and thrusting with it felt good (I kind of got the feeling of having to pee, as is normal when you start out with G spot play). But then I wanted more stimulation, so I decided to use the larger end.

I lubed it up, and started to stick it in. Ow. That was a process. It hurt and took a while, but once the ball actually got in all the way, it didn’t hurt anymore. (It hurts a bit when coming out, too.)

I started thrusting. I tried thrusting up and down and back and forth. I decided I wanted clitoral stimulation too, so I grabbed my Doc Johnson White Nights Velvet Touch 7” vibe (the only other one I have right now is the Wisteria Breeze), walked across the room (with the Pure Wand still inside of me!), grabbed some batteries, and got the vibrator going.

I tried all of this, and it felt pretty good… but not amazing. I grew frustrated, and then I realized why it wasn’t feeling super-dee-duper awesome.

I didn’t have any warm-up! From what I’ve heard, the G spot needs to become engorged to stimulate it, and that can happen through warm-up/foreplay. I feel like this will make the Pure Wand better for playtime with my boyfriend, since when I masturbate, I don’t really tease myself. I usually get right to the point.

(Maybe it’d be good if I was thinking about my boyfriend *an awful lot* beforehand, to the point of incredible arousal, and then maybe I could use it on myself. I’m not sure.)

(Also, after thrusting for a while, my arm and hand started to grow tired. At this point, I wished both ends were large balls, since the large end was easier to hold on to. Maybe the grip would be easier if the other end went the opposite direction, like an S shape.)

My first experience was a bit disappointing, but I learned some important lessons from it.

So just remember, everyone: just because you’re super excited that your Pure Wand just arrived and you want to play with it, that doesn’t mean you should! Watch some porn or something first – whatever gets you going. Then have fun with your new toy!

So, any thoughts? Do you have a Pure Wand? What was your first experience like?

Poll: Which sex toy review would you like to see first?

So I am planning on doing some reviews of sex toys! I am very excited, but reviewing can be kind of time-consuming (through testing it multiple times, taking notes, etc.). But to celebrate the start of this exciting reviewing adventure, I’m going to ask what you all would like me to review first, and the top-voted toy will be my first review!

So here’s what you can choose from (these are all products I own/will own when the shipment gets here):

Doc Johnson White Nights Velvet Touch 7″ Vibrator

Wisteria Breeze Power Bullet G

Hula Pleasures Water-Based Flavored Lubricant (in Banana Cream Pie)

Liberator Bed Buckler Restraint Set

Njoy Pure Wand

Sliquid Naturals Sea Water-Based Lubricant

Tantus Ryder Silicone Plug

Rocks Off Rock Chick Dual-Stimulation Vibrator

Rocks Off RO-80mm Bullet Vibrator (this powers the Rock Chick)

So, which would you like to see me review first??
