Pillow Princess is a bisexual cis woman who is in a long-distance relationship with a pansexual cis woman and she focuses on toys for people with vulvas and their use primarily during sex rather than masturbation (though that’s covered too!), as well as how people with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses have sex. Having more sites feature accessible sex toys is really needed, and it’s a valuable resource to have! She is also European-based, and therefore the toys and companies she promotes are ones that are easier to access (without a huge mark-up) in Europe. You will also not find anything realistic on her site, even fantasy and/or animalistic.
For those who don’t know Carly, AKA the Queen of Wands, she has been a sex educator at the Pleasure Chest on and off since 2010, and she now has a site of her own – complete with one of the absolute best titles in the industry, in my opinion! She describes herself on twitter as being a “Professional Pervert. Total Nerd. Sex Blogger. Queer, Poly, WOC. Just here glorifying obesity”, and that’s a pretty good summation of what you can expect to find on her site.
Felicity, the blogger behind Phallophile Reviews, started writing in May of 2017. For someone who has only been around for a few short months, she is really making an impression on me. The first piece that I read by her was on how dildos have made her better at handjobs, which includes a few beautifully composed grab-the-dildo pictures, an ode to foreskin (which obviously I’m all for), and a good joke about her ability to open a pickle jar. What more could you want?!
The Siren has pieces on how her feminism has and is evolving, and how she orgasms through literally everything no matter what; which is going to become a mini-series on the markers of ‘good sex’ with partners, and the second addressing the same in sex toys (both personally and in general). I’m pretty interested to read her thoughts on that!
Like me, they have found that there aren’t as many transmasculine bloggers as they would like, thus part of why they decided the step in. Their About page states something that I have always found to be true as well (one of my own reasons to initially get into blogging):
“Vulvas, especially clitorides, behave differently when exposed to testosterone, and there are specific ways that social pressures that interact with sex and gender in regards to transgender people. I feel like talking openly about these issues will encourage trans people, particularly transmasculine people in my case, to augment their sex lives and talk more openly about sex and sexuality.”
As you (hopefully) know, I’m all about diversity both within and without the sex blogging community, and I also love to celebrate the new folks who are doing great work. I am pleased to introduce you to Taryn, author of the wonderful blog Ace in the Hole, which was started in January of 2017! Taryn is an asexual, biromantic, white cis woman who writes about sex through the lens of asexuality – something you really don’t see very often. Her goal (as stated on her About page) is to “to provide more education around how asexuality can coexist with sex, dating, relationships, masturbating”, and she has compiled a great Asexuality Primer/FAQ page for you to peruse.
Insert Trans Here is a new blog (started in August, 2016) and run by a queer trans woman in the States. She wanted to find toys that worked with her body (both now and as her body changes through her transition) and found a lack of other trans women writing reviews. Like many of us in the industry, she therefore decided to start doing reviews of her own in order to help others in a similar position.
Do you love nerds? Sex? Podcasts? If you don’t, I don’t really know why you’re reading my site!
So you may know Bex and Kate from their blogs, but for those who are unfamiliar with them, they’re my favourite duo. They both blog about sex and review sex toys, are brain-twins, best friends, and all-around awesome babes.
They live in different countries from each other but every time they get together, hilarity ensues, and thus they decided to grace the world with a podcast so you (yes, you!) can listen to their gloriousness. I’d ship them.
This blog is run by Rebecca and Andy, a lovely couple who happen to be fellow Canadians. They created their site at the end of February, 2016, though their twitter has been around a bit longer. They are friendly and funny and have definitely made quite the impression, despite being relatively new to the scene.
