2019 Run Down

[Header Image Description: A clock reaching midnight.]

Yes, I know, it’s technically 2020. My post is late. But I’ve had the most hellishly busy and delightfully social few weeks, so I just haven’t had time to look back on the year that was. 2019 was a good year for me, both in and out of blogging. I’ve written some things I’m really proud of. I’ve met a lot of goals. I’ve had some important and healing conversations with other wonderful bloggers. If you’re reading this, you’re a part of what made 2019 so great.

In the top drawer, Vibrator

Hot Octopuss DiGiT

[Header Image Description: The Hot Octopuss DiGiT, a black finger vibrator with a bulbous silicone body, and a rosy plastic base. The side of the vibrator has “Hot Octopuss” written in raised text and two small oval speed buttons. A plastic figure-eight style finger loop with the Hot Octopuss crown logo on it connects to the base. The vibrator sits on a green leather table with intricate gold borders.]

Finger vibrators, like rabbits, are another candidate ripe for image rehabilitation in the sex toy sphere. I know when I think “finger vibe” my mind automatically goes to the cheap single-use vibrator rings you can buy from rusty condom machines. A few companies (a sizeable handful, if you will) have been releasing revamped finger vibes made with body safe materials and decent motors. Hot Octopuss reached out to me to review the DiGiT, and as a person with grip and dexterity issues, my interest was definitely piqued.

Paloqueth Wand Massager Review

[Header Image Description: The Paloqueth Wand Massager, a pink wand massager, lying on a blue floral scarf. It is inside a black gauze drawsting bag. The body of the vibrator is covered in silicone, except for a silver section at the base of the handle. The handle has lines of ovals pressed into it, and three indented buttons.]

My goal last year was to review more light-weight wands, and thanks to the people at Paloqueth, I’ve been able to review their Wand Massager. I liked a lot of things about the Paloqueth Wand, but there was one major fault that all but ruined the vibrator for me.

Womanizer Liberty 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.
