Wonders of Planned Parenthood

So, I know I promised I was officially back, and then sort of disappeared again, but I promise I have been busy. For the most part. I mean, Plants Vs Zombies hasn't taken up all my time, I swear! I have actually done things!
I got my day-job back, am modeling for summer school in the mornings, and just did a new review! See? Progress.

On a random note, anyone notice how many new fairly hard-core BDSM things have just arrived on the EF site? It's crazy. From ball gags to hobbles to bridles to reins, it's crazy! And neat.

Tomorrow's HNT should be up around noon, but in the meantime, I just got back from my first visit to Planned Parenthood.
You'd think I would've gone sooner, being how much I support them and tout their greatness all the time, but I've always gone to doctors and clinics, and it never occurred to me to go somewhere different (I also kind of forgot we had one).

With many problems happening with my insurance, and a complete lack of birth control pills, I was desperate. The doctor at the clinic wouldn't prescribe more until I got an "annual", and I knew my insurance wouldn't pay for an annual, and though I took 2 from the pharmacy last month, my second has gone conveniently missing, so I was SOL.
I knew the Health Dept wouldn't book me immediately, and even if they did, I didn't want to wait four hours to be seen, then get a huge bill 6 months later when my insurance once again decides not to pay for it. So I asked one of the Twins at work how PP works for them, and she recommended I call.
People, this place is a life-saver! Use it!

Firstly, condoms. Condoms condoms condoms everywhere! Free for the snatching, grabbing, or shyly slipping into one's purse. Also, those "Just Wear It" stickers, I always wondered where people got them! Now I know, and Coal proudly sports one on his car. I think when I go back I'll pick up some more.

Secondly, it was fast. I called at one, I got an appointment at three. I filled out the paperwork, waited ten minutes, and got in. Sat for five minutes, had my stats taken, talked, got my pills, and went home. I've never had any kind of clinic visit go so fast.
A large part of this was because mine was a "HOPE" visit; one without any medical tests like pap smears or anything. As I said, insurance wont pay for it, so I might as well not do it until someone can.

Money wise, the visit cost $60, as a pay-now discount. If I'd tried to use insurance it would have cost almost twice as much, and I would have ended up with a giant bill in a few months when the insurance decided not to pay it. They claim my Dysmenorrhea (what I take BC for) is not a "medical" problem, so they wont pay for the consultation to get the pills to control it.
Whatever. Fuck them. I'm getting new insurance soon, hopefully, anyway.
So, I coughed up my last hundred and paid my discounted bill, along with the discounted price for my new pills. Not the exact ones I was on, but the name brand of them.
They weren't as cheap as the Health Dept ($21, where the HD has most for around $5), but still, I'm not complaining. I get the prescription (I think they called it a subscription) for a full year, which means no more finding doctors and clinics and ways to claim I'm getting a pap smear because of STD symptoms.

This place rocks, I love it. Please use it people!

I've rambled enough so I'm gonna go, but seriously, today was a good Birth Control day for me, and I feel a lot of relief about the future of my "family planning". Hurray for PP.

Have fun, Play Safe!

The OverDue Review: Selene Pump

Hello babes!

I'm extremely behind on everything I was supposed to do forever ago, so I'd like to go ahead and get caught up on what I can. First off, a new product review!

Today's product (which should have been ups WEEKS ago, I apology) is the Selene Vibrating Clitoral Pump.

This clitoral pump comes from Vibrator.com's sex toys. (I love how easy it is to navigate their site; some companies make it so difficult to find what you're looking for...)
It's in the clitoral stimulators section, along with all the rest of my favorites. ^-^

The idea behind it is that the suction-cup action increases blood flow to your intimate areas (specifically, your clit), allowing you to experience more sensitivity and pleasure.
How awesome is that?

The Selene Pump, a made by California Exotics, through their "doctor approved" Berman Center line, comes in a neat box with plenty of informational reading material.

The toy itself is very girly, with a light purple color, glittery areas, and hearts all over the hand pump. It comes with a cute sheer bag and two interchangeable suction heads (one with little tendrils, one without).

It works by, basically, pressing the suction-cup head around your clitoris (or your nipple, or any other part of you), squeezing the hand pump a few times, and letting the pressure clamp the thing around your skin. For me this wasn't particularly a good feeling, in fact, it really started to hurt after about 5 seconds. There's a heart-shaped release button on the bottom of the pump, and I used it quite a bit while experimenting with the toy.

The Selene also vibrates, but I'm not quite sure why. The vibrations on this thing probably aren't going to do much for you. The two AAA batteries it calls for don't supply nearly enough power, so unless you're already pretty sensitive in general, that part isn't likely to get you off.

Now, anyone who's read up on my reviews should know that I don't kiss ass for these things; if I don't like a toy, I don't like it. I try to point out its good spots yeah, but if it's not good for me I say that.
This toy is... one of those cases. I didn't like it for me, but I love the idea of it and what it's supposed to do.

And, actually, there are two reasons I don't blame this toy for the fact that it didn't work on me. One, is this extremely positive review from the wonderful Curvaceous Dee (watch out, NSFW). I remember her review being my inspiration for wanting to try it out, and it's really a shame it didn't work so well for me.
The other reason is my own anatomy.
I actually have a sort of...hidden clitoris, which doesn't ever come out. I mean ever. I blame a lot of my arousal and orgasm troubles on this problem, and while I hope to one day get it fixed, I really can't blame a clitoral pump for not getting more blood to my clitoris when it can't even find it.

I was really excited to try it out, but as soon as the plastic-y circle took hold of my flesh, failing to attach when I didn't pump it enough, and squeezing everything when I did, I was no longer aroused at all. I tried different positions, different numbers of pumps, different angles, pulling the skin this way and that, whatever I could think of. I also tried it on my breasts, but with similar results. Perhaps my skin is just too sensitive; all it did was sting.

So, all in all, the sensations it gave me weren't particularly pleasant, and the sensations that were left afterward (when I should have been incredibly aroused and ready to go), were equally not-pleasant.

But, as I said, I don't blame the toy for this, I mostly blame my own biology, and am actually more disappointed in my own body than I am with the toy. I still think it's a cool idea and worth experimenting with, if you're body's up for it, and you're willing to cough up the $30. Not too bad of a price if it works for you.

Have Fun, Play Safe!

Color Me Sexy HNT #1

So, my newest plan of non-laziness involves a string of HNT photo's I'd like to over the next few weeks.

This one's not particularly sexy, but is pretty, I think (Coal did a good job).


I love the feeling of ink, marker, and paint against my skin.
A wet, cold sensation that slides across the flesh, leaving behind a sleek, bright line of color, swirling into the leaves, folds, petals of an elegant flower...

Sexy HNT!

$1000 Worth of Sex? Why, Yes, Please!

So!
I stumbled onto a fantastic contest that I couldn't resist going for. It has taken me three days, two different calculators, and one sore-ass back, but I finally have in my "submission".
But really, it was worth it, what wouldn't you sacrifice for a chance at $1000 worth of sex toys!?!?!
Check out the rules here and do one yourself!

My wishlist is a mixture of quantity and quality. The things I have been dying for, some interesting tidbits, and those few things that I just have to try! It's long, I know, but my general lack of funds can sometimes make me a selfish girl...this took days to compile...

BWarm Soy Massage Candle, Fig - Something sensual to start off with, foreplay and romantic light all in one. I've heard amazing things about these and I'd love to have one!

Oralicious Pina Colada - I'm slightly ashamed to say oral isn't part of my general sex life, so I'd really like a few things to bring things up a bit.

Hitatchi Magic Wand
- The ultimate toy that every woman should own, but I don't. How could I not include this???

Body Souffle; Strawberry Creme
- Mmmm, sexual body luxuries. I have these little fantasies about having a dresser/vanity covered in pretty boxes, bottles, and containers full of tasty, sensual, sweet-smelling treats for my body.

Cleopatra's Secret Cream; Peaches & Cream - Another body item, but this one also works as a clitoral stimulater, and it's flavored. Can't say no to that!

Nea (White) - One of those high-priced, absolutely beautiful, luxury vibrators. One I set eyes on this sleek, classy little thing, I practically yearned for it.

Silicone Bunny Buddy - A cute little vibrator that's cheap but looks worth a try.

Clitoral Gel Gentle - I spend a whole lot of money on Clitoral gels, and this is one I would LOVE to try. No menthol!

Lockable Vibrator Case, Large, black - I have always always always wanted one of these nifty toy boxes!

Lockable Vibrator Case, Small, purple - As I said...I've always wanted one...two would be better...especially since this one's great for travel!

Lure for Him - The idea of pheromone colognes and sprays fascinates me, so I'd love to try these out with Coal...

Lure for Her - I could surprise Coal when he gets back from work, looking sexy, tasting sexy (see products above), and smelling oh so sexy. :)

Hopn Rabbitstroker - I've always wanted to try one of the "thrusting" rabbits!

I-Vibe Suction Cup Rabbit - From what I've seen, these rabbits don't run too strong, but I'm so intrigued by the use of the suction cup...mmm..riding away on it... I've always wanted to try it. :-D

GiGi, Deep Rose - I actually put back a few things so that I could add this, I just couldn't help it. The most expensive thing on here, this is an orgasm treat I would love to add to my tiny collection.

Trix for Chix - An interesting little cutie that I had to add. What a delight it would be with that little bitty tip!

Krystal's Strobing Bunny Vibrator - I'm not sure why I have so many Rabbit's on this list, because it's not uncommon for them to not work on me. They just appeal to me so much!

Heart Shaped Breast Massager - My nipples aren't generally sensitive unless I'm really really turned on. Maybe these can help...

Naughty Nano IPod Vibrator - The OhMiBod's sibling, I can't resist craving this thing too!

Pocket Rocket Plus - Yet another one of those toys that no girl should be without, so why don't I have one!! Especially with my clitoral problem, a toy this strong should definitely be in my purse at all times.

Playful Pleasures - Another cute little thing I'd love to try out!

Aphrodisiac Oil Exotic Fruit - Yet another small sexual luxury I'd love to have (and see- isn't it pretty?) on my dresser.

Sweet Surrender D & S Game - I don't usually go for sex-based games, but as someone highly interested in the "other side" of everyday sexuality, this caught my attention.

Astroglide 1 Ounce- Just a cheap add-on, to use with all the lovely products.

Afterglow Multi-pack Toy and Personal Tissues - Nifty little things for both your toys and yourself! To clean up afterwards...

And, lastly, the thing I want the absolute MOST!!

OhMiBod Music Driven Vibrator - Ever since this thing came out I've wanted this little baby so much I fantasize about it! I've heard mixed reviews abou it, but only an explicit lack of funds has kept me from it, and there's little else I want as much as!




If the calculation on my over-sized calculator is right, this all comes to $999.34
Hope they aren't including tax or shipping on that budget, I'm cutting it close! >.<

Sex in Stereo

For your listening (and perhaps buying?) pleasure, here is a very basic (ie. not much thought put into it) list of my favorite sexy songs.
Hover over the titles to get my mini-opinion of it, I generally have my reasons for liking a song. Except maybe for the Katy Perry song...that's just....not really explainable...love/hate relationship and all.
Anyway.
It could use a little improving, and I'm totally up for suggestions (ie. leave comments and tell me yours), but I like this list. It makes me happy. In my pants, you know. :)




Listen, Love, and Play Safe!

3 Months and Quite A Few Orgasms Later...



Here I am, attempting to be "back".
One final left to take, a bottle of Blood Orange Mimosa champagne to drink, and 8 orgasms under my belt in the last 24 hours.
Am I ready to chat?

Maybe.

The Phone Sex enterprise went okay for a while, but then suddenly dropped out horribly. I made a pleasant $600 in the first month, and a pathetic $20 (if even) in the last month. I'm not sure what happened, and I am planning to try to keep up with it a little, but it just stopped feeling worth it.
The days with no calls, then days with nothing but 1 minute hang-ups, just got to me too much and I stopped clocking in.
I really want it to work, I'm desperate, in fact, for it to work, and I still feel a sort of glamor and excitement in working in the sex industry, but I just can't seem to make it work. I still take the occasional call, when a mysterious guy requests one, but I rarely clock in for hours at a time like I used to. It just gets too depressing.

Next week I head back to my day job, so hopefully my world will be filled with mediocre paychecks, good books (just started Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential, am waiting on the 5th Obernewtyn book, and another Francesca Lia Block book, and plan to read the Vivid girl's How To Have An XXX Sex Life eventually- courtesy of G) and-hopefully- lots of exotic foods (went to Chapel Hill a while back and got fantastic(!) ethiopian food that I got to eat with my fingers!!!). And, with much luck and effort, Sin's Secret will be back up and running and more interesting and sexy and fun than ever.

That's my goal, anyway.
Will it work? Maybe. Maybe not.

In the future I may have some interesting stories from my phone sex exploits, a long overdue toy review for Vibrator.com, and many new sex positions. Next time I stop by the used book store, also, I'm planning on grabbing some sexual history books, and teaching you guys some dirty naughty facts. You can also look forward to a HNT every week, and possible some erotic stories about food. It is definitely my obsession at the moment....

In the meantime, I was hoping some people could send me submissions for a possible print and web-zine that I really want to put out. No pay, just coolness. This could be art or writing, and anything sexy, erotic, etc. I've been wanting to do this for a long time but only have like 3 friends that writer erotic works, so I need some extra content, and you guys would be perfect, I know it! So if anyone is interested, please email me. SinSekret AT Gmail DOT com, as usual.


Much Sexy Luv!
