Review: Heads UP Kit Part 1/3
4/12/11

I've always been self-conscious when it comes to my fellatio abilities. Am I taking him deep enough? Am I using my tongue right? I'm sure my husband would argue otherwise, but it's true that you're probably not giving him the best oral if your worried mind is elsewhere. Good Vibrations helps you get on the right track with their Heads UP Kit that contains the DVD Heads Up: The Official Guide to Fellatio, the Lingo Vibrating tongue ring, and Sliquid Cherry-Vanilla Swirl lubricant. Good Vibrations has all these products available separately, but you'll be saving over 25% if you purchase the kit.

Of course the star attraction is the semi-educational DVD by Pleasure-Ed. It’s about 47 minutes long and has three extras. I have to point out that I had problems playing it on my laptop. The menu would not work so I had to choose the chapter manually. I am probably missing a codec, so be sure to update your codecs if you want to play it on a computer.

Carol QueenDoctor Carol Queen, the host of the DVD, is a sexologist and the co-founder of the Center for Sex and Culture. She's written a few educational books as well as erotica, and has been a featured contributor in many other educational works. Clearly, she definitely has credibility. Besides her, this DVD features [what I assume to be] two real couples and three actors, as well as interviews with Kitty Stryker and Lady Monster.

Queen starts us off by explaining the anatomy of the penis, using proper anatomical terms and comparing it to other phalluses of females, transgender, and intersex individuals. Throughout her explanation the scene fades in and out from her and couples engaging in fellatio, and we're given the first taste of what this DVD is offering. I honestly was expecting something totally different, and wasn’t enjoying the DVD immediate. I was expecting a straight forward how-to type of video, but instead Queen, Kitty Stryker, and Lady Monster speak in intervals between all the couples. None of the scenes contain explanations, but they all contain aspects of what the speakers talk about.

Couple 1The first couple is older but I'd easily say that they're the most connected in terms of experience and ability. They reinforce Queen's lecture about not needing to ejaculate in order to orgasm, and it's very clear by their uninhibited reactions that this isn't some fake porno. This is definitely the most "average" or "normal" type of couple on the DVD in terms of the style of fellatio and I think they did a great job in starting off with this couple for that reason, as well as to point out the realism of all these scenes. This couple isn’t attractive, at least not by Hollywood standards. But damn that woman is wonderful at what she does and their chemistry makes them my favorite.

Couple TwoThe next couple is in more of a dominant and submissive relationship and I didn't particularly like their style. The man is obviously the top and he often tells his partner what to do, and I'm unsure if he's forcing her movement or if he's just holding her hair (I'm pretty sure it's the former). It's a strong contrast from the first couple's oral scene, and while I totally enjoy rough sex now and again, I just couldn’t get into it because it didn’t seem like the woman was enjoying herself until the end.




Couple ThreeCouple Four

I believe the third and fourth pairings are actors with the same woman. These are the most "porno-esque" scenes because of the professional skill of the actors and that they're both performed in the standing position, which is a standard in pornography. I’m not sure how appropriate these are for this DVD because they are professionals and obviously not everyone is going to be able to suck cock like that. But I did like the third couple’s scene and found the fourth very artistic. I think it is possible to learn from the woman’s style, but for me the reality is that I am probably not going to be able to mimic her with my impossible gag reflex. Now if you can deep throat without discomfort, you will probably take more from this than I will.

I really only liked the first couple, but I can’t deny that there’s plenty to learn from even without step by step instruction. For example, the woman in the first couple gently holds her husband’s testicles and base of his shaft with sort of a cupping gesture, and uses this to jack off his shaft into her mouth. It’s difficult to explain, but I’d never seen that before. I gave it a shot on my husband and lo and behold, it works fabulously!

The extras contain the entire scene of the fourth couple which mostly flitted in and out during the DVD, more info from Queen, and one last note from Stryker. I loved Queen’s bonus segment because she has so much to share about anatomy and how the penis works. I think a lot of the information is common knowledge or found elsewhere, but this part is so well done it’d be great to share with others who are uniformed.

Would I recommend this DVD? Yes! Even though I really thought I was getting something different, it didn’t take long for the artistic style to grow on me. I don’t think that this is the best for absolute newcomers or for those who’ve never sucked cock, because Queen doesn’t hand feed you techniques. This is one that definitely has to be viewed with an observant, open mind. If you’re looking for a straight forward how-to, this isn’t the right one for you.

Information: 5/5
Techniques: 5/5
Presentation: 4/5

Concern about lack of directness.
4/11/11

Lately I'm beginning to feel that I'm not honest enough in my reviews. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to lie about a product. I'd never do that. What I mean is, I have a flaw of not standing up for myself and my beliefs as firmly as I should. If my opinion or desires may interfere or offend someone else's, I usually put "icing on the cake" by inadvertently getting across my true feelings or subduing the "harshness" of my feelings by using more delicate words.

My husband often points out when I'm doing this because in his opinion I shouldn't ever need to be so hesitant or very selective over my words, especially with him. What others may perceive as indecision is usually me saying "Well I'd like xx but we can get whatever you want," because I get anxious over the idea of being troublesome.

Since coming back into the sex toy community, I see that I do this often with reviews and I need to fix this. Maybe it's apparent to other reviewers with how often I say something on the lines of "it didn't work for me but ___ person might like it". People who are familiar with sex toys probably understand what I'm really saying (ie, "This toy sucked"). But people who are already into sex toys don't need a reviewer telling them that maybe if they like the things that I didn't, the toy would work out for them. No, a sex toy lover would already come to these conclusions themselves; there's no need for me to be holding anyone's hand.

Who this really hurts are people that are new to sex toys. If newcomers are reading my blog about a product that I didn't like, they may get the wrong idea. Maybe they won't understand how their personal preferences impact their taste in toys since they may have little to no experience themselves, but I definitely don't need to be glossing over a negative review by recommending a toy that I didn't like. Really, newcomers should be encouraged to try quality toys that work, and if a toy didn't work for me then why the heck should I endorse it?

I feel like an idiot now. I need to feel more confident in myself and my voice and not be a pushover in my toy reviews. No company that sponsors me is pressuring me to give positive reviews so I shouldn't ever feel the need to soften the blow.

I sincerely apologize to those who've read my reviews and felt confused about my honest feelings toward the product. I will attempt to go back and make corrections where I feel is necessary and applicable. Lastly, I'd like to remind all my readers that you never need to hesitate to ask me a question about one of my reviews. I'd love to hear your feedback in any shape or form.

Review: Sold on Sliquid Sea
4/8/11

Most people probably don't consider what lube they reach for in the heat of the moment. Whatever you picked up at the drugstore will work just fine, right? It will probably get the job done, true. But what are you really putting on and in your body? For some, parabens and glycerin can be irritating and sometimes even dangerous. Sliquid Sea is a fabulous lube that won't put you or your partner at risk.

Sliquid Sea


Sliquid has a whole line of hypoallergenic, glycerin free, and paraben free lubricants. Many of these are organic and even safe for vegans, Sea included. With such a small price tag too at a range of $11.99 to $14.99 per 4.2 fluid ounces, it only makes sense to pick such a healthy product over other lubricants.

Sliquid Sea is especially formulated to mimic your body's natural lubricant. It is supported by seaweed extracts from three different seaweeds—which are often used in cooking and as food additives—that serve as natural lubricants. The ingredient list is short and sweet:
Purified water, Plant Cellulose (from cotton), Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners), Carrageegan, Nori & Wakame (Seaweed Extracts), Potassium Sorbate.
Especially noticable is that Sea is free of any coloring ingredients (who needs that anyway?).

Sliquid Sea definitely does exactly what it's advertised to do. It's clear and completely scentless and tasteless and doesn't become tacky with friction or leave any sort of residue. As listed above, it contains Cyamopsis which actually conditions the skin (and I tested this on my arm!); this further prevents any sort of delayed skin irritation.

As a water based lube, it's safe to use with all your toys and is safe with oral sex. A single dollop should be all you need for an entire session, but anal play or shower play may require more because water based lubricants aren't as resistant to drying out or being washed away as silicone.

A push button top isn't my most preferred type of dispenser, but overall I'm really pleased with the container that Sea comes in. It's not hard to dispense just what you need, though the bottle is a pretty dense plastic so I predict it will be more difficult to get out as the bottle is near empty. I'm really happy though that it doesn't leak, so you don't have to worry about laying it on its side in your bed table or throwing it in your bag for sex on the go.

This is my first Sliquid product but it won't be my last. I'm completely sold and Sliquid has instantly become a favorite in the bedroom. I won't be spending my money any longer on other lubricants which can potentially be dangerous for my health in the long run when I have such an accessible, affordable, healthy option.

Thanks to Good Vibrations for sending me Sliquid Sea!
