Monthly Spotlight

What is the Monthly Spotlight?

This feature that takes place on the first and third Monday of every month and is designed to highlight a blog, vlog, or podcast that is under a year old. There will occasionally be other folks featured here as well, such as porn companies or artists, but the main focus is to highlight new people within the sex education community. If you’d like to be featured, please reach out!

Previous Spotlights

  • This is a blog that’s run by – you guessed it – Hermione Danger, a delightful dog lover, librarian, sports fan, and self-professed “Ravenpuff” (which is the cutest sounding house, lets be real). She’s a kinky submissive (mostly), rope bunny, and masochist who is monogamously partnered with a long distance dominant who goes by Swarley. As someone who also has a long distance dominant…this suuuuucks so much.

  • 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.

  • Coffee and Kink is a British sex blog run by Amy, a polyamorous, submissive switch whose blog includes reviews of toys, books, kinky items, and apparel, plus articles and essays on all manner of topics – from kink to non-monogamy, sex and relationships, erotic fiction, and personal stories. However, it isn’t divided into categories – everything is just nested under the “blog” tab – which makes it a little challenging to navigate if you’re not sure what you’re looking for.

  • 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.

  • Idols of Sheela is a sex ed site written by Lizxnn Cobalt Chrome. Lizxnn is many things; a first-aid instructor, a certified yoga teacher, and an adult sex educator; as well as a queer, non-binary artist and witch based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. She’s a kinky, polyamorous, and demi-sexual femme who is fascinated by “BDSM, relationship dynamics, and personal development in pleasure and awareness”. Her blog is a dedication to her path with sex and relationships, with a focus on the role that sex toys play.

  • 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.”

  • 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!
