Valentine’s Day

March 11, 2010

Nearly a month later I am brave enough to go onto the Agent Provocateur website to get the pictures of my present, and almost certainly find out how much my present cost.  It’s not like I want to know, but it’s a by-product of blogging about my pressie.

This is what I was bought by my lovely man:

with the matching briefs.  They are incredibly sumptuous, and lovely to wear as the silk feels so soft and, well, silky against the skin.  And they came perfectly gift-wrapped!

I’ve just totted up the price in my head.

*Dies*

I know I shouldn’t have looked, but I wanted to share what fabulous lingerie I’d been bought!  I truly am lucky. And it just means I’ll make it up to him for peeking at the price tonight, most likely wearing this.

Durex review – part 2

March 9, 2010

Now I have a permanent lust-object in my grasp who seems to be kinky, or as willing to be as kinky, as me I decided to let him (who needs a name by the way) have a peek inside my sex drawer.  He was impressed.  He was also incredibly shocked by the amount of lube I had amassed – mainly due to Durex giving me freebies.  He enquired as to how one person could need so much lube, and I merely said it was due being very lucky in getting free samples.

So here’s our varied review:

Tingle

We didn’t exactly waste any time in trying out two of the samples.  Let me paint you a picture: myself, kneeling on the floor, bent over the edge of the bed.  Him kneeling behind me pouring lube onto my naked behind.  He rubbed the lube all over my buttocks, before dipping a finger into my bum hole.  At first, it felt good.  All I would have needed him to do was to reach round with his other hand and start rubbing my clit and I’d be on my way to a stellar orgasm.  But then the tingle lube did what it does best – tingle.

Although it says on the label ‘suitable for oral, anal and penetrative sex’ I really would not recommend it for anal sex.  Feeling your insides tingling does distract you away from any object that may be entering you – which could be a good thing – but it distracts you from feeling anything else – which is bad.  You can’t begin to feel good about what your man’s doing to make you feel like a goddess as your head is just going ‘this is weeeiiirrdd’.  Perhaps the tingle lubricant would be best suited to hand jobs.

Pina colada

Much better and can be used for practically anything.  This is by far my favourite (and possibly my man’s too!) due to its versatility.  Yes, you read that correctly.  It’s function is two-fold.

1. It works really well as a traditional lube – no tingly feeling.  This made sex extra interesting as my man couldn’t resist the gorgeous smell so went to town licking it all off of me before slowly (and very easily and comfortably with no pain – always something to avoid with anal play) and smoothly entering me.

2. I reckon it can double up as a food source – my man actually spread extra lube over my back just to lick it off.  Apparently it really tastes like pina colada!

2 in 1 massage mousse

Durex describes this as ‘fun, squirty, luxuriously creamy and beautifully sensuous on the skin. It’s light, non-sticky, non-drip and non-greasy too. Perfect!’

I have to agree.  We used this in a completely non-sexual way.  Ok, I was naked, but that just makes massages easier and even better.  We have yet to try it as a lube, but if it’s performance as a massage mousse is anything it go by we only have high expectations.  It was quite sweet smelling and definitely a unique texture compared to your normal massage oils.  We love it.

Well done Durex.

Long title, I know.  It should actually read: How ‘New guy’ went from lust object, to fuck buddy, to friend, to me-realising-he’s-a-waste-of-my-time.

Things were going well: the sex was great, and when we were together I felt appreciated and included in his life.  I had been introduced to friends, and as we worked in similar fields it was great to talk to someone who knew what i was rambling on about.  Reading back on this last paragraph, all these qualities, except the ‘sex being great’ quality, identifies a friend.

As the long distance and our work prevented us spending greater periods of time apart, we relied on emails, texts and phone calls for communication.  But even after a while I would go days, sometimes a week or more without hearing from him!  This brought back my old feelings of insecurity and worthlessness.

Thanks to a few wonderful friends, I realised this wasn’t actually a relationship.  If we met up one weekend every two months, that was just friends with benefits.  There was no basis for any real emotions to be going on, and I had entered the realm of friendship (with sex) instead of an intense, passionate relationship.  I cut to the chase and told him that if he wanted to continue seeing me (albeit sparsely) he should make an effort to communicate more.

I got a reply at 1am the next morning saying he didn’t get in from work until 11pm and was tired and going to bed.  How else to take this?  I suggested we remain friends.  Which is what we’d wound our way to being in the end.

However, I was happy that we still chatted.  I was grateful for his advice on how to handle office politics and just the general chit-chat.  I actually thought I’d managed to do something that had previously eluded me – keep a ex as a friend.  All this changed when I told him I was dating someone new.  He went a bit, well….weird and made a sarcastic comment on it and proceeded to compeltely ignore me.

Things to lust after

January 24, 2010

New entries are coming soon, I promise, as I have lots of delicious exploits to share with you all.  My knees are trembling at the sheer thought of said exploits.

Phwoar.

But you know what else makes me go ‘phwoar’? Agent Provocateur.  I didn’t know they did shoes!  So check out these babies

Over-the-knee/thigh-high boots are high fashion at the moment.  But, if like me, you like simplistic footwear without fussy details, I think these fit the bill.  And, let’s face it: even when they’re out of fashion (they will come back in again though), if you walked into the bedroom wearing these, underwear and a whip in your hand your man isn’t going to complain is he?

Phwoar.

Xbox tips for dating

December 14, 2009

Whilst browsing the web, as you do when you’re procrastinating, I came across this blog post about an Xbox game that allows you to practise your skills of talking to girls.

Here’s my tip:

  • Start seeing your mates again.  Seriously.  Stop sitting, glued to the screen playing said Xbox, and talk to your mates.  Get some social interaction.  Then you’ll realise what’s socially acceptable in a conversation, and in doing so, you know how to talk to women.

We’re only human you know.  We aren’t an alien species that speaks a different language.  Strike up a conversation about anything, be it how you find the attack on Berlusconi terrible, or, perhaps more likely to get a response, your plans for New Year’s Eve.

Make it your pre-New Year’s resolution
