Sex Stuff: Taking Flight, Taking Rides

The humour wasn’t lost on me that I read most of these fun and titillating stories while riding various types of transportation. Subway and commuter train, to be precise. And I can definitely say that I have fantasied and dreamed up some wonderful stories. Add to that my drives, my bike rides and the occasional plane trip, and I think it can be said with certainty that erotic stories that involve travel are “my thing.”

So it was a delight to receive this request to review from one of my favourite sex bloggers, Ms. Quote. I know her work to be top quality and extremely readable. In both her blog and this collection she skillfully combines whimsy, sensuality, dirty sex and emotion. A rare combination in erotica!

Throughout Taking Flight, Taking Rides, Ms. Quote explores the travel theme with various different sultry and sexy characters heading out on journeys for various different reasons including business, family visits and more. There are all sorts of weather issues, room issues and relationship issues to be dealt with. And what’s the best way to deal with most of life’s issues?

Sex. And these stories have lots of it! Really good, steamy hot sex. Well crafted and delicious sex!

I thoroughly enjoyed the collection, but I do need to send one bit of advice to Ms. Quote: make friends with a copy editor. There are some instances of misplaced text, some typos and other issues. In this instance, it isn’t too distracting, but erotica is rife with these problems and they can be easily avoided.

But back to what matters, the smut! If you like to travel, literally or in your mind, get on board this sexual journey!

Sex Stuff: Kissing Pixels

Kissing Pixels by Louise Lagris

Distance from a hot fuck can certainly make the heart grow fonder. But even if the heart isn’t really into it, if there’s been some hot sex, then other parts of us can definitely heat up.

If you’ve ever been all sexed up with no place to go except the web and Skype, then take a read of Louise Lagris’ short erotic story Kissing Pixels on Fleshbot’s new portal. This story is well-worthy of being one of the initial offerings of smut’s premiere site because embodies the universal story of long-distance lust, something most everyone can relate too.

The two participants of a sex-filled weekend are an ocean apart. She’s at home in a New York snow storm, wide awake late a night. Nowhere to go, no one to fuck and just a bit drunk. He’s just arriving home, much later at night from a night on the town in London. Despite a bit of reluctance on her part, they connect over Skype to see what the night may bring.

The key factor in this story is that it is completely believable. I mean, we might not all have random weekend trysts, but most people have fallen for or lusted after someone who lives out of town. And despite the “closeness” we might feel with digital communication, it just isn’t the same. Well, if you can manage to get the two of you naked over webcam…you’re getting closer.

Conveying that sort of situation can be tough, but Louise Lagris does a great job getting the reader right into the action with clever, fun, sexy writing. Erotica is all the more effective when it is well written and edited, and Kissing Pixels is a great example of economical, effective work. Combine that with some scorching sex and fun characters and you’ve got a great one-handed read.

Sex Stuff: Durex Play Allure

Durex Play Allure

This vibrator comes with a silky purple bag! It sure does! And it feels good! It sure does!

Okay, this toy isn’t going to set the world on fire as a great sexual innovation. Its a vibrator, plain and simple.

Now, that being said, it is a nice vibrator. It has a good heft to it, feels good in the hand and is relatively quiet for a buzzy good time. The multiple speed settings and nice smooth transitions if you ramp up or down are a welcome change from the click-click-click of most vibes. I’m not partial to the hard, plasticy toys like this one, but it is a bit silky feeling, so not as band as usual.

The best part of this toy is its availability. If you’re too nervous to go to a sex store, you’ll be able to pick one of these buzztastics in your local drug store or even department stores. The Durex Play Allure will make a great beginner toy.

This is also the type of toy that is great for experimenting. I’m partial to having it rubbed up against my perineum while I get a blowjob. These are the types of things you can think of and try out.

Really, I can’t say anything bad or anything great about this toy. It’ll get you off or it’ll give you some nifty sensations.

Sex Stuff: Vanilla Chai Body Candy

I will be completely honest: when I get naked with someone, whether we are fucking or not, the scent I want in my nose is that of natural bodies. I want sweat, I wany cum. Perfumes and colognes rarely interest me, regardless of the situation.

I guess I just prefer intimacy to be more.

Usually this preference extends to massage products as well. I prefer a good, smoothy unscented product. Imagine my surprise in discovering how much I enjoy the strong scent of Good Clean Love’s Vanilla Chai Body Candy.

This body rub is quite pleasant. Chemical-free and made from all natural ingredients, the Vanilla Chai Body Candy is very nice on the skin. It warms and becomes slick easily, spreading over the skin seductively. It is both great as a massage rub and as a precursor to sexier events. One thing to note: it should not be used internally. 
But really, this body candy is so much about the smell. I’m not a fan of chai tea as a beverage, but I do very much enjoy the strong scent of this rub. It is powerful and heady—and just fills me with sexual energy. Very, very sexy stuff.
I will say, you really do need to like an overpowering scent if you want to try this body candy. It will fill the room. Delightfully, but amazingly.

Sex Stuff: TENGA Flip Hole White

The TENGA Flip Hole White (as well of the other assorted colours) are all kinds of awesome…and then a bit not awesome at the same time.

This is one of the most stylish and nice looking toys I’ve ever seen, without a doubt. It is one of those sex objects you could set on your bedside table and not have to worry about visitors noticing (if you care about these things.

It is also easy to use, easy to clean and easy to enjoy.

So what then, you might ask, is my issue with it? Well, I guess I had a different expectation of the toy. 
Don’t get me wrong, it feels good. Open it up, throw some lube in (it comes with 3 different flavours that produce different sensations) and go wild fucking yourself. I’m sure you’ll have a fantastic masturbatory experience!
My issue, however, is in the textures offered up. Each colour of TENGA Flip Hole offers different textured silicone casings. As you can see in the images, those textures vary quite a bit within each toy. My guess is that the design was to provide many different points of stimulation on the penis, including some that we surely don’t ever get with a partner. 
But that’s where it goes a bit wrong. Yes, the toy felt good…but I was expecting it to feel like a vagina or ass or mouth. And wow, it surely does not feel like any of those. Or, if I ever do encounter a living orifice that offers up these bumps and ridges and nubs…I will be concerned for the owner of that hole!
Again, this is not to say that the TENGA Flip Hole can’t be and isn’t enjoyable. I’ve used it since, and I am getting used to the idea that it is not supposed to be a simulation of the usual play spots. Maybe I just need to think of it as someone new!

Sex Stuff: Wilde

This bad boy from Happy Valley’s Fuze line is a beefy addition to anyone’s toy chest. And by beefy I mean big, thicky and juicy.

The first thing to know is that Wilde, if you’re planning to use it for assplay is not a beginner’s dong—no matter how wild you are. You’re going to need to ease into using this anal adventure. Even for those partaking in vaginal vavavoom, the close to 9 inches of shaft could cause discomfort.

Once you’re ready to get crazy with Wilde, you’re going to find it a highly pleasurable toy for both pitcher and catcher.

In its most basic use, this disco stick is a very comfortable toy to manually fuck someone with. Flared bases, a complete necessity, sometimes make holding a dildo and getting into vigourous fucking action a bit challenging. Fortunately Wilde’s base affords a good, easy grip.

However, that is not Wilde’s bread and butter. Where this toy excels is when it is used in a harness. The textured bottom gives off fantastic sensations for the wearer. Ensure you include some lube in the mix and that happy spot will make her happy spot pretty damn happy with every thrust.

And for the receiver of those thrusts? Wilde is 1 3/4 inches wude and you will feel every inch if those 9 long ones. And because this is a Happy Valley product, the silicone is highest grade and feels great.
The website description if this fantastic phallus quotes its namesake, Oscar, “To love yourself is the start of a lifelong romance.”

Let me tell you you are going to want to love yourself and others a whole lot with Wilde!

Sex Stuff: Durex Play Ultra

This is a curious little toy.

In an age when sex toys and devices are becoming more and more slick and stylish, the Durex Play Ultra kinda makes my cock look a bit like a rhinocerous. This is not to say it doesn’t work, but I did have abit of a giggle when I first put it on.

Basically what we have in the Play Ultra is an attempt to improve ob the standard vibrating cock rings. It accomplishes this to an extent.

The rhino horn is a nice addition. Longer thab the standard vibrating bit of most cock rings, the Play’s extends up, aiming directly at the clit. It seems to have potential to be pokey in a bad way in certain positions. However, most of thetime it will nestle right down between the two of you.

One innovation I am not so keenon is the split, harder ring. Whereas most cock rings are made of soft and expandable jelly, the Play Ultra is made of a harder, less flexible material. I found it uncomfortable, especially with some harder, grinding action. Also, you have to remember, it only has 30 minutes worth of charge. So, do you space it out in one try or save it for multiple, short sessions?

All told, Durex’s Play Ultra is a pretty decent addition. The vibration is good and as long as you’re not moving too hard or in more advabced positions, you’ll do just fine with it. Just don’t look down too often.

Sex Stuff: Basix 16″ Double Dong Time for an oldie but a goodie this week. Well, the double dong I have might be this one, or at least one very similar to the Basix 16″ Double Dong. I’m not really sure, I bought it so long ago. This is one of my most versatile and cherished toys. I find new uses for it all the time. Two of my favourites uses are for two different purposes: practicality and fantasy. First, practicality. I’ve always found dildoes with flared bases to be hard to use for vigorous manual fucking. Regardless the position or angle it can be difficult to build up a good, fast, hard motion. Enter a double-ender. Just grab hold of the not-inserted end and fuck away to your partner’s heart– well, cunt or ass too–is content. One note though: check the depth or whichever orifice you are penetrating. Too deep can be quite painful. Now on to the fantasy part. My initial reason to by a double dong was a different kind of double penetration: I really wanted a toy that we could use to fuck me and her at the same time. And hell, I’d seen it in porn a bunch of with two women, so I wanted to see if my fantasy could work. And it does, but it isn’t the easiest sexytime thing to manage. You really have to play around with positioning. And definitely make sure the lube is flowing. I found it best, if you’re trying the ass and pussy variation, put the end in the ass first, then position the pussy. Damn that description sounds dirty but clinical! Like I said, this double dong is one of my favourite toys and I look forward to finding even more hot uses for it!

Sex Stuff: Tenga 3D

TENGA is, by far, one of the most innovative sex toy manufacturers around. It is obviois from their designs that much care and thought goes into their consideration of our pleasure. So when I received a package of TENGA products my hopes and cock rose!

And so far, with the TENGA 3D, spiral edition, I have not been disappointed.

For me, look is a big part of the appeal of sex toys. A stunning or beautifrul or dirty looking toy will get me going before it even gets near my body. I am still keen to start a sex toy objets d’art tumblr or blog someday.

With that in mind, I adore the geometric design of the spiral. And it ain’t just pretty. The shape is tje function and that function is fantastic.

Here’s how it works. That pretty design is nice and soft. The toy id basically a cock sleeve that you slip down over your dick for some jiggle up and down fun times. Now, you could use the smooth inside, right out of the package. But I think you’ll love it that much more if you turn it inside and squeeze your cock in with that sexy spiral design.

The sensation is quite amazing. While the toy is actually quite.soft, the design stays just firm enough to be rather intense. Using that friction, you or your partner can jerk you into orgasmic oblivion.

I did find one drawback with the TENGA 3D. If you’re in the mood for a slow, lingering wank make sure you have lots of lube on hand. As you go along and the lube gets a little tacky, the toy will start to suction on to you penis. Like really suction. But, if you keep the lube a-flowin’ you can keep the wank a-goin’.

Despite this (admittedly self-determined) difficulty, the TENGA 3D is definitely a toy to try. Normally I am big on toys that people can use together, but in this instance I heartily recommend some great solo pleasures.

Sex Stuff: Nipple Enlargement Cylinders

Too many people completely discount men’s nipples. Sure they ate mysteriously useless but they can be two nifty little nubs of pleasure. Not all guys are into having their nipples played with, but far more don’t even know either way because people just don’t try them out. If you’re curious about your or your partner’s nipples, give them a whirl! Tongue, mouth, fingers, ice heat—there are so many possibilities.   

There are also lots of toy options. I’ve tried various nipple clamps and enjoy them a lot. When I started looking around for something new for my titty-toppers I came across Nipple Enlargement Cylinders from LA Pump, a variation on the ever-popular penis pump.

 Looking at them, it isn’t hard to figure what you do. However, harder still might be figuring out how this is going to feel good. Trust me though, it does.

 The basic idea is to slip the cylinder on your nipple, attach the pump to the other end and then suck that thing in with as much pressure as you can stand (and then maybe a bit more). That sensation alone is pretty intense. Take it to the next level by releasing the pump, removing the cylinder and then playibg with your engorged, newly-sensitive nipples. Wild!

 Two notes: if you have a piercing, be sure to get the largest size cylinder; and if you are a particularly hairy dude, you might consider some trimming or shaving. The suction is definitely impeded by excess fur.

 And of course, these toys aren’t just for boys. Women will definitely get a lot out of these fun cylinders. There might need to be greater consideration for sensitivity with women’s nipples, so just ease into it.

 I can’t imagine Nipple Enlargement Cylinders will be for everyone. Also, given the shape of them, they are best used while you are on your back. Butt they are definitely worth a trip into uncharted waters.
