review: blush temptasia elvira

temptasia “elvira” by blush novelties. this is a black dildo with a suction base and a bulbous head.

i’m relatively new to this whole dildo thing, if you can believe it. 40+ years on this blue marble and i’ve only just acquired my third toy! peepshow toys was kind enough to add to my collection and i’m here to tell you, it’s a good addition!

the specs

blush novelties has made the “elvira,” part of the temptasia collection, for those who value the two Gs: girth and g-spot. the elvira is 6″ long, although 5.5″ is insertable. that might be a bit conservative for some folx, but that 2′ girth is my jam! it has a round, bulbous bumpy end that feels great. made out of black, body-safe silicone, the elvira also has a sturdy suction base and can be used with a harness. it’s easy to clean with a wipe or by boiling or placing in your dishwasher. be sure to clean out the small divot at the top!

mmm, yes!

i really enjoyed getting to know elvira! the silicone feels velvety and soft to the touch; you’ll probably want to rub it against your cheek a couple of times, it’s so nice. (or maybe i’m just a weirdo?) i used a little bit of the butters (go buy it here now, you will thank me) before insertion, which made it easier to use. i was immediately aware of that bump on the tip. it really does feel amazing against the g-spot and although i’m not someone who squirts fountains (i do find that impressive and hot af!), i found myself squirting quite a bit with this toy! i was impressed with it and my own body! it’s not my ultimate goal during sex and it’s okay if i don’t ever squirt, but it is a rather cool feeling.

i had a few great orgasms using elvira along with my magic wand for clitoral stimulation. it’s a really nice pairing and i can see this becoming a go-to when i want a quick, intense orgasm.

hmm, i dunno…

i wanted to try out the suction base and see if i could lower myself onto the toy. this did not work particularly well, as my legs might be too long. if you are someone shorter in stature, perhaps with more flexibility than this middle-aged woman, you would probably have luck with this. it does stick pretty well to suction-friendly surfaces. you might also be able to use it with a wall. unfortunately, i don’t have any surfaces at home that would work with this, but give it a try!

i didn’t find the elvira to be great for partner play. we might have been a little too far into things at that point to pay attention to how my partner was  inserting the toy. i found that it felt too bumpy against my cervix if it wasn’t held with the g-spot tip pointing up into me. if it went sideways, it felt unpleasantly awkward. i’ll probably keep this toy for solo play unless we devote more time to playing with it and paying attention to how it’s inserted. but that’s just us; other people might have a much better experience with the elvira during partner play. 

summing up

this is a great toy for those who love g-spot simulation. i think it’s best as a solo toy, but as always, your mileage may vary. at only $24 USD, it’s well worth giving this well-made toy a try. i’m impressed with the quality and will be trying more of blush’s line for sure.

go get your own elvira at peepshow toys using my link. your support is always so appreciated.

** thank you again to peepshow toys for providing me with the elvira in exchange for my honest review.

weekly link-love: cleaning out the bookmarks edition

from hotemoji.com

hello readers! it’s been a couple of weeks since i’ve done a link-love, but i’m finally back and this time i’m doing a cleaning-out-my-bookmarks session. here are a bunch of links i loved from the last couple of months.

toys and fun things to buy for yourself:

review: liberator wedge – get down on it – i was curious what other wedge owner’s thought about this lovely piece and, lo and behold, this link popped into my twitter feed. i highly recommend purchasing a liberator wedge in any case, since it can really give you a really nice boost you need, but i would say it’s a must in your collection if you have back or knee issues like me. read this review and go get yourself one!

review: the mysteryvibe crescendo – one of my favorite people wrote this great review. i’m happy to have helped as Productivity Domme. *giggle*

sexy misc:

the 5 best sex positions to send her to g-spot heaven – i’m not usually a fan of these lists, but this one actually has a couple of interesting positions i want to try. the butterfly, in particular, looks good to me if  Daddy and i can make it work. it might be good for me when i’m having a flare up OR keeping things going when we need a break from the reaaaallly hard thrusting and grinding. 😉 i will report back!

50 shades of purple: stunning paintings of roller derby butts and their bruises! – i love bruises so much! i don’t know why. but these paintings are gorgeous and so are those bruises, some of which look like planets and nebulas. love it!

relationships, communication, etc.

making an ass out of u and me – i love this piece from april 2018 about long-term relationships, negotiation, and communication. even though this is about negotiating scenes/play ahead of time, i think there’s a lot here for partners even outside the bedroom. “use your words” is my current mantra.

being owned – i love the way eye describes her emotional baggage: “In my winters I am bare and raw, so raw I fear I will be frosted to the bone and yet, spring greening always comes again, well, so far it has.” this is an all-too-brief, but beautiful bit of writing about the cognitive dissonance of feminism and D/s dynamics, a topic i’d like to explore more myself.

wanking in a relationship – i’ve thought a lot about this. i’ve had partners with varying degrees of weirdness about masturbation in relationships – whether it’s been their own reluctance to masturbate in front of me or their own issues with either of us masturbating on our own and what they think that says about the state of our union. this article from the author’s archives made me think in a more empathetic way about why we might have these less-than-ideal notions about the topic.

sex work

your mother is a whore – i’ve never read tits and sass, “service journalism by and for sex workers,” but what a great site it is! this piece is about sex workers talking to their children about the work they do and about sex more generally. fascinating.

‘not a workplace:’ julie bindel and the school of wrong abolitionism – there’s so much to unpack from this article and i need to give it another read, but i recommend.

enjoy, dear readers! 💗
