Surviving the Holidays with a Mental Illness Using Illustrations

Ever feel your stress increase around the holidays? Between sending holiday cards, purchasing gifts while ensuring no one was forgotten, preparing elaborate meals, being inundated with holiday music while shopping, and seeing lots of family we may or may not enjoy, it can be an extremely difficult time of year for anyone.

Now imagine your brain is already a shitshow year-round.

For some people, the holidays (more…)

New Affiliate Announcement

There are a ton of great companies out there, but there are also a lot of crap companies who scam people or just sort of suck. When I choose to buy from or work with a new company, the biggest things I look out for are: quality of products, safety of products, reviews, customer service, ease of shopping, and company reputation.

I’ve written several reviews for a variety of great companies, and I’ve even partnered up with a few of them as an affiliate. This puts me in somewhat of a ‘spokesperson’ capacity for these brands, so I always make sure that I vet what I put my name on. Some of my current partnerships include: Amazon, Good Vibrations Toys, Smokazon, The Nooky Box, and more.

It is now my pleasure to announce my latest affiliation: (more…)

All of My Black Friday Affiliate Codes and Deals in One Place

Whether we like it or not, that season is upon us here in the U.S. We’ve traded in our bathing suits for hoodies, there’s a chill in the air, and we’re still trying to justify why we didn’t complete our 2017 New Year’s resolution. Some people LOVE the holidays, and some people hate them. But what do we all love?

Buying fun shit.

Just the sight of the delivery truck is enough to make many of us squeal a little inside, and lots of folks feel that same euphoria from giving gifts to others. But no matter if you’re making purchases for yourself or the next coolest person you know, we all want to save money if we can – and Black Friday is one of the best opportunities to do that.

So, to make your life easier, I decided to (more…)

It Happened to #MeToo. Twice.

If you’re unsure about what the recent #MeToo movement is, I’m happy to explain because it’s just that important. In the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, an American film producer and former film studio executive, many celebrities – including Alyssa Milano, Reese Witherspoon, Lady Gaga, Patricia Arquette, and a couple dozen others – began tweeting with the #MeToo hashtag in support of those affected, or with their own experiences of sexual abuse. The hashtag immediately went viral by 10/15/17 and started an outpouring of personal stories.

So here’s mine.

I already opened up and told you about how I was molested in seventh grade, but I have two other experiences that I haven’t shared with you until now.

When I was 18, I (more…)

This Is Not Who I Am

It’s half past midnight, and here I sit alone.

But I’m not alone; he’s sleeping right next to me, though he might as well be miles away.

It’s gotten so bad that I nearly can’t function. 

Every day is a battle with myself, a battle I am sorely losing. 

I can’t work; I can’t play; I can’t even force myself out of fucking bed.

I can’t do anything but think, and regret, and put off.

So close to the bottom already, the slightest nudge pushes me into the darkness. 

One argument, one bad day, just one damn thing is enough to bring me to that place.

It’s out of my control.

It grabs me by the wrists and yanks me down as I beg and plead for it to stop.

But it doesn’t stop. 

Some days it crushes my soul until I collapse to the floor from absolute exhaustion. 

I clutch my chest in the fetal position, but I can never quite curl up small enough to stop existing. 

And somehow I get up every single time.

I should be lying next to my husband like I do every night. 

But I’m wide awake propped up with a pillow; enveloped by the darkness as I stare blankly into it. 

There’s nothing there, but it presses down heavily on my chest. 

The blackness is miserable, yet somehow comforting. 

I can’t stop thinking. 

I can’t stop feeling. 

I’m angry. 

This is not who I am. 

Here’s How Fucked Up My Heart Is

If you’ve never heard of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), it’s when community members purchase a “share” at local farms in which they pay upfront and receive farm goods periodically over the growing season. It’s a wonderful concept that takes some financial burden off of smaller farmers, while providing fresh produce and other surprises for the community.

This is the second year that we’ve participated in a CSA because (more…)

My Squirting Tell-All Guest Post on SwingTowns’ Blog

SwingTowns is a large dating network for polyamorous, swinger, and fetish lifestyles, and they recently approached me to write for them about my experiences with squirting. Ever since I figured out how to do it, I’ve been an advocate for others to learn and experience it themselves. I realized that you don’t have to be a porn star, or any other star, to squirt. (more…)

True Story Series: Squirting Adventure on the Beach

Cocktails on the beach create the perfect prelude to a little Afternoon Delight. With the scorching sun beaming down on me, I’m sticky with sweat and in the heat the alcohol seems to be hitting a little harder than it normally would. Never without a way to medicate, I freely vape without fear of consequence on our semi-private beach as I watch the waves roll in and out.

As the hours pass, we sip our frozen daiquiris and take shots in between wading in the water and napping in lounge chairs under an umbrella. The longer we’re out, the more intense the tingling between my legs becomes, like the increasing rumble of a train before it passes by. I vocalize a plan about fucking when we get back to the beach house before we go out to dinner, and he tells me that had always been his plan. Just hearing him say he’s already thinking about screwing me sends another ripple through me. I start thinking about what I’m going to do to him and (more…)

A Message to Pulse Nightclub Victims & Families With Pink Floyd’s ‘Pulse’

On the first anniversary of the biggest tragedy ever to strike the LGBTQ community in the United States, it’s important to take a moment to remember those who are affected.

Pulse Nightclub was a gay club in Orlando owned by Barbara Poma and Ron Legler and was opened in 2004. In 1991, Barbara’s brother John died from AIDS and they named the club Pulse so that he can live on. However, on June 12, 2016, any semblance of a pulse was shattered when a single shooter shot and killed 49 patrons, and wounded 53 others.

Industry Expert Guest Blog: Nurse Mary J with 5 Steps to Cannabis Advocacy

When I first joined Twitter in the dildo capacity about a year and a half ago, I found a handful of awesome, welcoming, and genuine people right away. One of those people is the beautiful lady behind Nurse Mary J Tattoo Aftercare – Colleen Kibler.

She’s an educator, blogger, businesswoman, cannabis advocate, and total badass to name a few. She’s modest and kind, and is the type of person who takes the time to tell you she appreciates you. She’s the first person who popped into my mind when I wanted to bring you a guest blog, and I’m thrilled that she not only accepted but also wrote a fantastic blog post with little to no guidance.

New Poll: Does the Fear of Getting Caught Turn You On?

I’ve always heard about people who get turned on from potentially ‘getting caught’ while masturbating, having sex, or otherwise doing something frowned upon. Just thinking that the janitor may walk into the closet mid-fuck, or that the kids will be home from school at any minute is enough to make plenty of nipples hard.

Me? (more…)
