It’s April Fools! I’m sure your feeds and emails are filling up with hilarious posts from talented bloggers. Unfortunately, I don’t really possess the skill of being deliberately funny, so I haven’t done anything for April Fools on this blog before. I do, however, possess a lot of weird shit, one such item being a book of Mothman erotica, descriptively titled Erotic Encounters With The Mothman: Meredith Meets the Mothman by Gwendolyn Rose. As an avid fan of both cryptids and erotic fiction, I couldn’t avoid buying this book, and when it arrived on my doorstep in November last year, I held out for five whole months for this here April Fools review.

It was my unofficial goal of 2019 to review more blue toys, because the back room of my parent’s house is just full of great photo backdrops. How fortuitous that my first review of the year is the Womanizer Liberty, in light blue, sent to me by the wonderful folks at Betty’s Toy Box!

2018 Run Down

[Header Image Description: A close-up of a crystal Christmas star with a small silver tag reading “2018”.]

What a turnaround this post is from last year’s end of year wrap up! I’ve had a great 2018, actually, both in my vanilla life and my blogging life. I started a really good relationship in June, I’ve got a great new therapist, and I’ve been doing well academically. As far as my blog, I’ve celebrated my two year blog anniversary, received my first ever products to review, and used my blog posts to process a lot of new emotions I’ve been experiencing due to my deteriorating physical health.

I’ve also tweaked the way this post is structured, partially because what I value about blogging has shifted, and because I want to look into the oncoming year in more ways than just what toys I want to purchase or review. Lists are in alphabetical order or post date order, rather than order of importance.

So, I come back to blogging after a few months, and suddenly every toy I review is my new favourite! First the NS Novelties Wave, and now the Noje W3! What’s going on? Where have my standards gone? Have I lost my touch?

Body Confidence From Bed: Nurturing Your Disabled Sexuality

[Header Image Description: A photo of me, Finn, a pale-skinned non-binary Australian Aboriginal person. My shoulder-length blonde hair is pulled up in a topknot on my head.

Being disabled can be gross. Without proper aids like shower chairs and support bars, I shower – at most – once a week. With proper aids, that bumps up to about three times a week. You don’t notice until you can’t do it anymore, but showering and feeling clean are often very important for your self-esteem and body confidence. When you spend a lot of time at home, the state of your living space also impacts on your mental state. If you’re intermittently bedbound like I am, your bed can not only get dirty very quickly, but it can also feel stultifying, or even imprisoning. It becomes a representation of the pain or limitations you experience because of your disability, and can stop feeling like a space you want to be in, let alone a space you feel sexy in. This year, I found myself single for the first time in about six years, and I couldn’t rely on the external validation of a partner, so I had to generate a lot of my own sensual feelings. Being disabled can be isolating, depressing, and difficult, but you should be able to find moments where you feel cute, sexy, and confident, so here are some tips.
