(A bit of forewarning – this is a LONG post, even for me. I’ve added a cut tag to make it a bit easier for site visitors to view, but please do click through – the info about how you can help Scarleteen is at the bottom of the article, as well as links to other bloggers & writers who are participating in the Blog Carnival)
As some of you that regularly follow my writing or have been to some of my classes know, my childhood was … well, messed up. I didn’t grow up with a sense of how to relate to other people, what my body was about, and what experiences were appropriate (as well as those that were not appropriate). I had no clue about much of anything involving sexuality. I knew enough to know that the girl that rode the bus to school with me in 6th grade was not correct when she dished the info that boys had these “things called swirms” that would start a baby if you kissed said boy with your mouth open, but I didn’t know enough to correct her. I knew enough to feel bad about my dark-of-night explorations into my body’s responses – and I knew enough to never ask my mom about it. Read more…

Scarleteen needs your help. I need your help to give them some help. I have a selection of items that, if you purchase from me before November 15, I will donate 40% of the retail cost to Scarleteen. So far, their check from me is just about $20. Wouldn’t you like to see it grow?
This week’s reprise as a Tuesday’s Toy is the Silicone K Balls. These are seriously one of my all time top sellers. Why?
–Body safe silicone lasts far longer than other lesser quality materials, and is easy to clean thoroughly.
–Secure cord (also silcone) allows for easy, comfortable removal
–The size of the K-Balls is big enough for you to feel, yet not so big that it’s not suited to people who don’t like larger toys.
-Their shape makes it easy to exercise your PC muscles by doing Kegel exercises around them
-The subtle vibration created by the internal rattles feels GOOD, especially when you’re moving around.
-They also work delightfully as an “add on” for those of you that like to be spanked, have your butt played with, or just be reminded while doing other things that you’ve got something special going on that nobody can see!
You can purchase your very own set of Silicone K-Balls in either pink & white or blue & white at my Love U website. They’re only $32! Add in a 4 oz. bottle of Love U Water Lube (safe for use with silicone toys, and as always it’s free of glycerine, parabens, DHEA, & it’s vegan, too), and you’ll not only have some of the best water-based lube & Kegel exercisers on the market, you will be responsible for a donation of $20 to Scarleteen!

Last week, I talked a bit about the fundraising special I’m running to help get money into the hands of the good folks over at Scarleteen; on November 1, I’ll put up a blog post as part of their blog carnival, but from October 11 – November 15, I’ll be donating 40% of the retail cost of five Love U Parties items directly to Scarleteen! This week’s toy is one of my fundraising picks, the Spot On Glass Dildo.
This slender, yet sturdy toy is made of perfectly clear tempered glass and curved to caress your body with a cool, sensual touch. Ideal for either vaginal or anal play, the Spot On wand is perfect for people who love to get their G or P spots going but don’t like lots of bumps, ridges, or texture on their toys. Tempered glass is safe for insertion, and it’s non-porous (which means you can get it 100% clean very easily) and doesn’t require as much lube to get that friction-less feel that many people love.
At only $42, this toy is very affordably priced (especially when you consider how long you’ll use it – this is one toy that you won’t have to toss out after a year because it’s lost it’s appeal). And each purchase of this toy means that Scarleteen will receive a donation of $16.80. So go to my website, pick up a Spot On wand, throw in some lube (both Love U Silicone Lube & Water Lube are also included in my fundraising promotion), and take a peek at the Silicone K Balls & the Prostate Health plug – and know that not only are you getting some amazing toys, you’re helping to keep Scarleteen running for another year, and giving teens (and adults) around the world the knowledge and empowerment that they need to become the sexually happy, healthy, and loving beings that they were meant to be.

As you saw in my blog post yesterday, I’m honored to be one of the participants in Scarleteen’s Sex Ed Blog Carnival. I believe in funding the amazing work that they’re doing – and I’d do it financially if I could. But since I can’t…I thought I’d ask for YOUR help in getting some money into their coffers!
I’ve selected four Love U Parties items that I strongly believe in as great accessories for pleasure-based healthy sexuality: our Love U Lubes (both Silicone & Water Based), our Silicone K-Balls, our Prostate Health vibrating plug, and our Spot On Glass Dildo. And for the duration of the Sex Ed Blog Carnival (running until November 15), I will donate 40% of the sale price of EVERY ONE of these toys that are purchased through my website!
And yes, I’ll report back with the total once the blog carnival is over – I want you to see how much your purchases helped! I have set a goal of being able to donate at least $500 to Scarleteen through this fundraising effort – please pick your favorite items, purchase them, and enjoy the pleasure of not only using some incredible toys and lube, but also the knowledge that you’re supporting healthy sex education for teens (and adults!) around the world.
Please note: this is a fundraiser that I’m offering – not Love U Parties as a whole, though they wholeheartedly support it! Ordering through the main Love U website or any other consultant’s page won’t ensure your donation – so please make sure you use the above links (or click the Love U banner to the right of this post) so that I can make sure your purchase is counted.

Most of you have probably visited Scarleteen – a project started by Heather Corinna as a way to provide a honest, open, and trustworthy resource for sex education information for teens from all walks of life, all genders, orientations, and experience levels. I was really honored when AAG contacted me and asked me if I’d consider writing a blog entry as part of Scarleteen’s Sex-Ed Blog Carnival, to help aim attention to the site and to help kickstart fundraising for the coming year.
Scarleteen is privately funded; rather than relying on donations & grants that might limit their ability to give out honest information, they opt instead towards funding from individuals and others that give without strings attached. This means that they really do need every dollar that is donated, so even if you only have a few dollars to spare, consider sending some their way. They do the big, important work that nobody else can – or will – and they deserve all the support we can give them.

The problem with trying to look really hot (especially those of you that like to flag your hankie colors of choice in your back pocket) is that your wallet or purse ruins the look – especially if you need to travel as light as possible, leaving your whip wielding arm or paddle-receiving butt unencumbered for shenanigans. We make it easy-peasy with our Leather Wrist Wallet.
It wraps around your wrist and snaps in place with two heavy duty snaps, and has room to hold your calling cards, cash, credit card, and ID. You can even tuck a condom into it…just in case. It’s got two sets of snaps so you can adjust it to fit, and will stay in place through all the spankings you can deliver (or take!). Order your Wrist Wallet for $46, and enjoy it for years to come. Heck, hand it down to your kids when you’re done with it. Take the condom out first, though, would ya?
