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.
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.
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.”
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.
