real-neat-blog-award

I’ve been nominated for a Real Neat Blog Award by the courteous Carnal Queen! This is my first time being nominated for anything so a big thank you and shout out to her. This is a little series of seven questions that has been making its rounds in the blogging world, Someone nominates you to answer a few questions about yourself and your blog and then you pass it on by nominating a few other people! Sounds like fun so lets get started!

1.)Why did you start blogging?

Sex toys are interesting,  Information on male sex toys was hard to come by a few years ago, It’s still relatively hard to come by when compared to the wealth of information available to our female counterparts and I wanted to change that. Previously I had done tech reviews for a local computer shop so I’m not completely new to the concept of reviewing things and I had been getting progressively more interested in sex toys so the transition felt fairly natural.

2.)If your site had a goal, what would it be? How do you feel you’re doing with that goal, right now? How do you feel you’ve done with that goal over all?

Male sex toys seem to have aura of negativity about them in all the social circles I’ve been in, A few years ago I brought up the subject with a few male friends and I got nothing but scoffs and negative comments, Like using a sex toy made them less of a human being, One of them got borderline upset. What I found odd was that I was good friends with their other halves and knew that they frequently attended sex toy parties, When I asked my male friends again they said that it was fine for their SO’s to use sex toys but they drew the line at using them themselves. If I had to say I had a goal in mind with my blog it would be to dispel the stigma and negativity that seems to tag along with male sex toys for no good reason. My blog is still in its infancy with only a few posts so I don’t feel like I’ve made significant progress towards my goal, But if even one person reads the blog and decides that they would like to try something I’ve reviewed or buy their first sex toy my time spent on the blog will be justified.
3.)How has blogging influenced your life?

Blogging has had a profound impact on my well being, While I may only be 24 years old I’ve had an extremely hard life by most people’s standards and because of this I suffer from clinical depression as well as cumulative strain PTSD. I have to take several different medications on a daily basis in order to function like a regular human being, Even still there are days where being a functioning person just isn’t possible, On days like those I don’t feel like I have control of anything but I learned a while ago that masturbation is a great way of coping, It feels great and a release of  endorphins is wonderful no matter what state of mind you’re in. Blogging has given me something to look forward too, Something positive that can come from those bad days, It’s played a huge part in improving my mental status and has been a hugely positive experience.
4.)What is your favourite part of blogging?

Without a doubt it would have to be meeting and interacting with other bloggers and viewers, The sex toy and sex toy blogging community has been amazing. I’ve met so many wonderful, positive and interesting people in my short time doing this its just been incredible. Getting to try new toys and relaying my experiences is nice but without a receptive and supportive audience the appeal would fade quickly, It’s the readers, The people I’ve met on Twitter and the awesome companies that make this as enjoyable as it is. Receiving comments and questions really does make my day and it’s something that I constantly look forward too so please don’t be shy! I love reading and interacting with my readers!
5.)Are you kinky? How did you come to this conclusion?

Am I kinky? Well I don’t really know if that is a conclusion that I get to make, Everything is relative and changes depending upon who is viewing the situation.  From my own perspective I don’t consider myself overly kinky, I’m always open to broadening my horizons but as with most people I have a few things which do not interest me sexually such as scat play, Inflation play, Rape fantasies and a few more, Everything else as long as I have an understanding and willing partner is on the table. Does any of that make me kinky? That is for you to decide.

 

6.)What do you want to be when you grow up?

Comfortable. When I get older all I want to be is comfortable, Comfortable in my own skin as well as my mind, To not have to worry about money on a daily basis and to be healthy. Everything else past being comfortable would just be icing on the cake for me.

 

7.)What is the most important thing about you that you want everyone to know?

Even though I’ve been through some horrific events in my life and they’ve left scars, I’m still here and I’m still kicking, My past experiences have changed me in ways I couldn’t predict but they haven’t all been bad, I started this blog, I’ve met some amazing people and I can’t thank everyone enough for just being awesome members of the community because it keeps me striving to constantly improve myself.

Time for nominations! If you have been nominated before I’m sorry but that just means more people think you and your blog are awesome!
