Dress Your Kitty Pocket Panties

I won a contest last month at Naughty Muffin. I won my very own Dress Your Kitty pocket panties. The concept is explained on the website:

“Dress Your Kitty Pocket Panties were created quite by accident. As a woman with a full-time career, two active teenagers, and attending graduate school full time I have little time to prepare for long days. On days where work is followed by four hours of class in the evening I would often throw an extra pair of panties in my laptop bag just in case I wanted to feel a little fresher in the midst of a long day. One evening, while at school, I was pulling my laptop out of its bag and out flew my panties with it. My classmates looked at me with these giant blinking eyes and I sat there flush with embarrassment. I quickly played off the moment with the comment to the effect of “oh those are just my backup panties”. This is when the idea of Pocket Panties was born.”

I love this idea, since I too never know when I need a fresh pair of panties. All the the Dress Your Kitty panties come in a velour pouch for discretion. They are all uniquely decorated with Swarovski Crystals. My panties were red with black lace and the crystals were sprinkled into them. They are really sexy and comfortable.

 

The fit into the pouch really easily. The velour picks up like everything but I didn’t mind that knowing my panties were safe and clean inside. The care instructions say to hand wash the panties. I ordered a size large (because ya I got some meat on my hips). The size was a good fit for me. the panties are very comfortable and looked pretty sexy.

On the website Dress Your Kitty there are about 21 styles available. The panties can be customized with the crystals. So that is an option if you are interested in writing something on your panties. They also have a “Panty of the Month” club available. You can recieve new sexy panties in the mail each month. All of the panites come with the Swarovski Crystals and their own pouch. Might make a nice gift idea…

Babeland Toy Cleaner

This simple and easy to use Toy Cleaner from Babeland is my favorite toy cleaner. I have tried a few different cleaners and I prefer this one over all of them. It is clear like water. Babeland Toy Cleaner leaves behind a very faint, clean scent which is not offensive.

Ingredients: Purified water, Phospholipid, Preservative, and Fragrance

The bottle is completely clear except for the Toy Cleaner sticker. The sticker does not have usage instructions. On the Babeland site it says to spray on toy and rinse with water. The site also says that it inhibits growth of bacteria. I did a search of phospholipid and it is a naturally occurring chemical found in the body and also in nature. I can’t explain how it cleans, but the cleaner leaves a clean smell behind without a heavy residue. It works for me.

I have used this cleaner on almost all of my toys which range in materials including: glass, PVC, silicone, metal, latex, TPE, TPR, and ABS plastic. This cleaner has worked on all of those materials for me. I found it easy to use. The spray on the 6 oz. bottle creates a mist and covers a wide surface area of the toy. The smell of this cleaner is very faint, but smells very good to me. The scent is almost citrus but very faint and doesn’t offend my nose. The scent doesn’t permeate the room when it is sprayed and it is hardly detectable after the toy dries.

 

 

Babeland Toy Cleaner is the only toy cleaner on the market  I would actually buy. Babeland offers this toy cleaner in 1 oz. and 6 oz. sizes. The 1 oz. bottle is the perfect size to fit inside of a purse or toy bag. The 1 oz. size also comes with a cover for the spray top which keeps it from spraying during transport, the 6 oz. size does not. The price of the 1 oz. is $5.00 and the 6 oz. is $10.00. I use my toy cleaner a lot, but even I was surprised at how long the 1 oz. bottle lasted.

Babeland offers a 10% discount coupon for customers that sign-up for their e-mail newsletters. They also have to easy to enter giveaways going on right now, one for setting up a wishlist and one just for those that subscribe to their e-mail newsletters.

Fifty Shades of Grey

I just finished reading the book one in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James. I am just torn on what to think about this book…

On the real, the writing was not all that. The characters lacked the sort of depth necessary to carry a trilogy. This book is a cheap thrill full of hot sex and lover’s quarrels. I have read much better books. None of them had the descriptive sex scenes of hinting at the BDSM lifestyle like this book does.

This is erotic fiction, with a big twist. The main character is a 21 year old virgin woman who meets a Dom male she can’t stay away from. He can’t stay away from her either. The book’s erotic scenes were very hot. They were hot in an un-vanilla kind of way. They were erotic and involved spanking and some bondage. I enjoyed them thoroughly. That is not what is so disturbing about this book. The disturbing part is how the Dom became interested in the BDSM lifestyle. The Dom is fifty shades of fucked up. Assuming this is how or maybe the only reason someone might be interested in this lifestyle is unspoken. It is hinted about throughout the book. What exactly was she thinking when she made the male character so fucking fragile? Is the author pro or anti lifestyle? Needless to say I am almost shocked this book is even on the best seller list. I so torn on this book.

 

Do I support this book? It is hot and brings to light a very sexy lifestyle that I think needs to be more mainstream. I loved the dissection of “the contract”. I know some couple’s have them. I doubt they go to the extent the book does, but it is laying out the lifestyle for people who have no idea. I get it.

Do I shun the book? I think this author is trying to say that you have to have had some sort of trauma to choose a BDSM lifestyle. This is bad, very bad. That makes me want to hate the author. A person’s turn-ons are very personal. I know you could love the BDSM lifestyle without having been traumatized. This sort of thinking drives the lifestyle further into the shadows. Kink does not equal crazy…period.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

 

 

DONA Lingerie Wash

Dona by Jo has introduced a whole line of bath and body products. I am so happy to review for you the Lingerie Wash in that line. I got a chance to try the herbal bath oil and I was impressed with it. It had a sweet subtle scent. The scent of Lingerie wash I reviewed was pomegranate. It is also available in agai, blue lotus, camu camu, goji berry, and mangosteen.

Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Sodium C 14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Propanediol, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, Lycium Barbarum (Goji), Coffea Arabica (Coffee Seed), Euterpe Oleracea (Acai), Morinda Citrifolia (Noni), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Garcinia Mangostana (Mangosteen), Propanediol, Citric Acid, Bezyl Alcohol, Methychloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothaizone, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

I really hate when I find a cute outfit and then find out it is “hand wash only”. I do not like using regular detergent on these items, since the soap never seems to come out. The Dona wash was gentle and didn’t leave any sort of residue on my lacey clothes. I used this product to clean my dresses, tops, and lingerie. I am pretty impressed with this product. I have so many “hand wash only” items, it is great to have a product specifically for cleaning them.

The directions say to use 1/2 cup for 1 gallon of water. I found I didn’t need as much to get a good suds going. The bottle doesn’t have a pump, just a screw type cap. I needed to squeeze the bottle a bit for the product to come out, and then it came out in small blobs. The liquid soap is thick. The directions say to let the clothes soak for 5-10 minutes, gently hand wash and then dry as directed. I used it as directed and it left my clothes with the slightest hint of pomegranate smell.The scent was not overpowering, I wouldn’t really call this a pomegranate scent. It smells a bit flowery. I liked the smell. The pomegranate Lingerie Wash by Dona smelled very good without being overpowering. The scent of this product is also influenced by aphrodisiac infused scents. I like the idea of this.

I would recommend this product. The herbal bath oil I tried had the mangosteen scent and it was a very pleasant without being overpowering as well. Dona has produced a good smelling reason for me to not be afraid of “hand wash only” items for my wardrobe!

The whole line of Dona is available at FunWares. The Dona Lingerie Wash is only $5.95 for a 9.5 oz. bottle. FunWares has the lowest price I have found on this product and their shipping is always fast and discreet. Check out FunWares and see why it is one of my favorite toy stores.

Allure Faux Leather Zip Corset

Corsets are wonderful for a sexy look at the club or in the bedroom. I own about 10 corsets. I love the look of corsets and what they do for my small bust. This corset from Allure that PlayPassions sent me, totally blew me away! The detail and quality were top notch.

The look of the bust is cut differently. It has a sharp look that I love. The front has a zipper that makes this easy to get on and off. Most corsets I own have about a million hook and eye fasteners in the front, or worse, no opening in the front at all. The hook and eye is nice but a zipper, especially the look on this corset, make for easy access and look very tasteful. I wore this corset out for about 5 hours, I had no chaffing from it at all. The lining of the corset is a red satin. It is a very comfortable corset.

The corset came complete with a faux leather g-sting and garter straps. I elected not to use the garter straps. I think they would look nice just hanging down and are long enough for even someone with my height to use with stockings. I had no use what-so-ever for the thong that it came with. It was basically a black elastic band with a triangle of faux leather connecting it. It was too tight and uncomfortable.

So what I couldn’t wear the thong! The feel of this corset on and the looks I got at the club more than made up for that! This corset made me feel like a Goddess!

The laces in the back are not made of skinny satin strings or something cheap that will fray easily, they are made with thick boot type laces. This made tightening it up easy, and also looked better in my opinion. the laces were ridiculously long, I wanted to cut them but didn’t so I could show you for this review. To keep them from fraying once I cut them I will probably need to burn the ends a bit so they have an even end. (That is a trick I used-to use with my army boots and this corset has the same type of laces.

My opinion of this corset is that it is very well made and will flatter most body types. I am a bit small on top however I ordered this corset in large and it fit very well. If I did have a bit more on top it would look even better. The boning in this corset is plastic but gives firm support. I could have made my waist much smaller and this corset would be great for corset training. I am not really into that just yet and really just like for it to help add some curves. Unlike with cheaper corsets, this corset did not bend at weird angles or cut into my waist uncomfortably. It gave me some curves while still fitting comfortably.

A corset is meant to do three things: make the waist smaller, lift and support your bosoms, and help improve your posture. This Allure Corset succeeded on all three and it felt comfortable. The only thing negative I have to report is that it doesn’t breath very well. If you end up wearing this for any length of time and it is warm, you may find your torso sweating. If however you don’t wear this out to a club, whereby you end up dancing for hours, it may not be a problem for you. I will definitely be wearing this again, after I wash it of course!

To clean this corset you can mix up some liquid dish detergent with warm water in a bucket and use a soft bristle brush to scrub it and then rinse with cold water. Make sure you HANG DRY! It is very important to hang dry and not machine dry because faux leather is made of PVC or some other kind of synthetic fabric and will either shrink and distort or melt.

I got this corset courtesy of PlayPassions a toy store that caters to swingers, that’s right just for us! Of course they have lots of toys, lubricants and playgear along with their large selection of club clothes. On PlayPassion’s website you will also find lots of tips for swingers. This Allure Corset is available there for $60.

Vampire Gloves Review

One day Miguel and I were in a local sex shop looking for an outfit to fit the “theme” of the night. The sales lady was incredibly helpful, she tried to sell me on a few new toys she had in stock even though I assured her I didn’t need anything. She then pulled out a set of Vampire Gloves she had just gotten in stock. I was entranced with them. The feeling of these gloves on my skin was incredible. They were over $50 and make of leather, a bit out of my price range for an impulse item. I have thought about owning a pair ever since.

What are they, you ask? They are gloves with teeth, each of the fingers has little metal spikes that can be used for sensation play. I think they are genius. These gloves are the perfect addition to a night of BDSM. The studs are sharp but will not pierce the skin under “normal” use, according to the website. I found they feel delicious especially on the back, buttocks, nipples, inner thigh, inside of arms…any where you want to goosebumps! Leather can be a bit tricky to clean though. Don’t imagine for one minute that you would want to use these and then just stow them away. They will need to be cleaned. Along comes SereneSin with a solution….These gloves are not only washable, but they are available in lots of sexy colors. Also, they are only $25 a pair with 10% of sales going to charity!

The secret to these gloves is the rivets carefully placed inside.

Now the bad news…..the gloves are small. Probably too small for most man hands. I wore them and played with them all over Miguel, much to his delight, with no problems. They felt good on my hands and were easy to use. Miguel put them on and instantly the glove ripped as he tried to get his fingers in. The rip happened at the base of the the middle and ring finger. Really, I could still play with these gloves, but I would not take them out to an event. The rip doesn’t interfere with any of the spikes, but it looks ghetto.

I am torn, excuse the pun, on how to review these. Good for $25, bad if you have big hands, good if you don’t want to invest a bunch of money, bad if you play hard. I want to recommend them to you, since I would buy a pair myself. Just make sure the wearer has small hands.These gloves can be purchased at VampireGloves.info for $25.

Sneaky Sack Review

I found this really cool place to put my toys, it’s a Sneaky Sack and it’s made by the genius at Holistic Wisdom!

Here’s how it works: Dimensions:

  • Exterior- 17.5″ Height x 13.5″ Width
  • Main Compartment- 17.25″ Height x 12.5″ Width
  • Back Pocket- 13″ Height x 12.25″ Width
  • Front Pocket- 12″ Height x 12″ Width
  • Straps- 4″ Length x 1.5″ Width

Materials: Nylon (Grape Colored Sack) or Lustra and SOFlux (Black Colored Sack)

♦Lustra is a cotton blend (outside)and SOFlux(inside) is a waterproof, breathable, fluid-proof cleanable fabric that won’t crack like other vinyl products.

The Sneaky Sack has three different compartments. The cool thing about this sack, is well…everything! It is large enough to hold toys like Hitachi with no problems. It is detailed enough for me to keep small items like condoms without loosing them at the bottom of a drawer. This bag can hold almost anything keeping your most secret stuff secretly stashed away. I put a few movies it in, and some bondage stuff that is not so discreet (like metal handcuffs). The Sneaky Sack is also a perfect place to hide your jewelry or money. It holds a ton of stuff and is not even detectable under a jacket. Oh and you can lock it if you need to. You can use a small deterrant type of lock on the zippers, since there are two, (lock is not included, thou).

As a chic with way too many toys I love the idea of the sneaky sack! You can keep your stuff away from prying eyes and locking it will act as a deterrent for anyone that actually does find it! I tried to get some pics showing what the Sneaky Sack can hold using some of my toys. Ideally you could use the Sneaky Sack to separate your silicone from TPE or other materials that don’t play so well together…

Just some random toys...

A peek inside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am not good at the picture thing, I was trying to give you an idea of how sneaky it could be.

 

I am giving this bag 5 stars! It is very durable, waterproof and easy to clean. It holds more than I would have imagined. I could have put much more in this sack, but my hanger was already bending. ***The good folks at Holistic Wisdom suggested using a wooden hanger for hiding heavy toys.

The Sneaky Sack is available at Holistic Wisdom in grape nylon for only $29.95 or in black with Lustra and SOFlux for $38.95.

Universal Toy Cleaner

I got this little pump of antibacterial toy cleaner from FunWares. This Universal Toy Cleaner is made to clean any material toy and contains Triclosan, which is an antibacterial and antifungal agent. Everyone who uses sex toys should know a bit about keeping them clean. I like to use sex toy cleaners for all of my toys.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Sodium C14-16, Olefin Sulfonate, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate (and) Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl, Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Triclosan, Citric Acid, Methychloroisothiazolinone (and) Methylisothiazolinone, Tetrasodium EDTA

Key factors I actually care about in a toy cleaner: antibacterial qualities, easy of use, smell and price. This product met all my requirements and I would recommend it. The bottle I got was 6.28 fl. oz./185.72 ml.

One of the things that kinda of bothered me about this product, it didn’t have instructions for use printed on the label. My internet searches came up short of finding out exactly how to use this. I know this sounds crazy, but some sprays you spray on and wipe off and some require water be present so you can wash it off afterwards. Right, so I wrote the manufacturer and they say spray it on, leave it on til it starts to dry, them wipe it off. Easy Peasy!

It has a sort of chemical smell, but almost all things with anti-fungal properties do. Why is anti-fungal important? Because sex toys get wet and go into dark places (Like your drawer or toy box, Silly! What were you thinking?). It has a light scent. I mean I had to try and inhale it up close to even detect it, but it is not a pleasurable smell. It is faint if anything and I don’t sniff my toys. It is not as strong of a scent as my anti-fungal LELO spray, but not quite as pleasant either.

The spray bottle is the typical pump. I have traveled with this cleaner in tow and the bottle has not leaked. The pump comes with a clear cap. The pump has threads and the top snaps on. The spray comes out in a fine mist which covers a wide area and it only takes a few pumps to cover an entire toy. The liquid inside is watery and clear. The label on this toy has no backdrop so reading it was difficult being that the contents are clear as well. I had a real hard time photographing it since the writing on the back showed up as well as the writing in the front. The front looks like the picture above and the back has the ingredient list and copyright information.

FunWares carries this Universal Toy Cleaner for $8.95. FunWares is a sex toy store I trust that offers low prices with fast and discreet shipping.
