Yesterday evening I was having dinner with friends in Chicago, and the discussion turned towards their ability to have sex in a real bed (post camping trip with a slightly leaky air mattress, which is not terribly conducive to energetic romps). After I suggested that doing so would be a dandy plan for their evening, one of them said something to the effect of…
“We can have sex, if you do all the work and I just get to lay there”.
Face it. We’ve all had those days. Amazing, sexy rockstars that we are, we still get tired, and lazy, and just want someone to Get It Done. And in honor of those moments, I’d like to introduce you to two of my favorite low-energy toys: the Gia and the Stroker X.
Gia is a delightful curved g-spot toy which hits the right places perfectly and comes with 7 vibration settings, so that you can get the perfect combo of throb and pulse to tickle your (or your partner’s) fancy – and with less effort!
Stroker X is a fantastic silicone masturbation sleeve that, coupled with your favorite water-based or oil-based lubes can make even the humble handjob into a very trip to Happy Funtime Land. If one of you has a little more energy, you can put your mouth over the end of it and create suction, while adding in a little tongue action to the head…talk about blowing their mind!
Gia retails at $44. Stroker X retails at $48. But if you order through me via email before September 15, I’ll give you BOTH of them for $75, plus shipping! Just call it my official show of support for lazy sex.

What’s white and black and spiraled all over? Our silicone Spiral Shaft vibrator! This beauty is built similarly to our Slick Shaft and Ripple Shaft – it’s actually bendable and flexible in the middle, so that it follows your body’s curves perfectly (and the vibration is centered up at the tip, rather than down at the base); this makes for a sexier, more body-friendly toy. The shaft itself is high quality, non-porous silicone, which allows for easy clean up. This vibe takes 2 double A batteries, and delivers a moderately quiet, fully variable, strong thrumming vibration.
Currently, the Spiral Shaft sells for $54. However, it’s on Love U Host Special for the month of September, so if you’ve been thinking about hosting a sex toy party, book it this month and pay only $35 – or get it for free using your host credits! Aren’t in my area, and still want to do a party? Don’t worry – we have Love U Parties consultants all over the US, and I can put you into their expert hands 🙂 Just email me, comment here, or go to my Love U website & send an inquiry!

Since I posted about her illness here a few weeks back, I wanted to put up a brief note. Last night, Tom and I made the very difficult decision to ease her into the next phase of her journey; the cancer that she was diagnosed with was running quickly and we did not want to have her suffer more severely just to keep her with us. She was held in his arms as she drifted off to sleep. Obviously, we are all heartbroken; I’m very grateful that I was able to have some great time with her the past few days and that I was able to be there for her at the end.
I keep wanting to send thank you notes to everyone who donated towards her care. We still have some pretty big bills to cover, but those of you who donated enabled us to pay off the majority of the biopsy cost and be able to make choices for her care that did not revolve around how we could afford it.
Please go spend time with your animal companions, if you have them, and remember how much of a blessing they are to us – even when they’re fussy, even when they mess up the house, they give us so much love and compassion.
And thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your love, support, energy, and prayers. We’re still hurting deeply, and it’ll be a while before that changes, but you are all keeping us going.

Normally, I wax poetic about the toys that I put up here every week. The ins, the outs, the ins AND outs…you get the picture. But this toy? It really doesn’t need that. This is the Sapphire Swirl tempered glass dildo.
7.5″ long. 1.25″ wide (the head is a little bigger). Raised sapphire blue ribs. Fits into a harness. Durable tempered glass. Heavy. Sexy. Stunning.
And? Only $48, and it comes with it’s own padded drawstring velvet bag.
You are SO totally worth it.

My girl cat, Bit, is not doing well. Over the weekend, her tummy (which has been discolored and we were told to keep an eye on it – which we did) started bleeding in one spot, and by Monday it was not healing up – so off to the vet she went. Our vet took a closer look, and determined that she has a tumor, most likely of the mammary glands on both sides of her belly. We had blood work done to make sure that her liver and kidneys are working well enough for her to go through having a biopsy to find out whether it’s malignant or not. Blood work just came back that other than some anemia (which is sort of to be expected), she’s healthy enough to manage the biopsy. So…in about an hour, we’ll take her in for some tissue removal and in five or so days, we’ll know whether surgery is an option.
I am obviously in a really rocky place right now. Bit has been with me since just before my divorce back in ’98; she’s been healthy as a horse her entire life, and she’s the queen of the household, ruling with a fur-covered, claw-sharpened fist. I cannot imagine my life without her; I’m also not willing to see her go through unnecessary medical intervention if there is little chance that her quality of life and life span will be improved. If it’s malignant – we will keep her comfortable and loved and (even more) spoiled until it’s time for her to move on. If it’s benign – we will talk to the vet about the prognosis of such an extensive surgery, and make our decision based on what’s best for her. We are trying to not let money be the main issue, but it looks like it’s heading that way; as of today’s procedure, we’ll have spent over $1000 (which neither myself, T., or B. have to spare), and that’s not counting medication & future care.
I hate to ask for money; in the past, I’ve done so only for my IMsL run back in 2009. After talking to a few folks yesterday, I’ve decided to ask very quietly and politely for assistance. If anyone has a few spare dollars that they’d be willing to send to offset her expenses, we would all be incredibly grateful to you for your help (there is a Paypal donate button on the right hand side of this page that you can use, or you can email me for a mailing address or other options). I wish I could tell you that your money will save her life; we just don’t know that yet. But we don’t want to give up on treating her without knowing that there aren’t any better options for her other than to keep her comfortable and loved.
More importantly – please keep her in your thoughts & prayers. If you’re not an animal lover, this may seem ridiculous; if you love or have been loved by an animal companion, though, you know that we only want the best for our girl, and we’ll do whatever we can to make sure she gets it. Her companionship and love for us have been freely given for her entire life; it’s the least we can do to make sure that whatever time she has left is full of as much joy and comfort as we can give her.
