For those of you who aren’t in the know, I’ve spent a lot of time feeling less than because I don’t have a degree. It’s been frustrating and it’s been overwhelming for me, mostly because I dislike feeling as though I can’t do something even though I have experience that outweighs someone with a degree. Well, as I’ve worked on this blog, and learned things I like and want, my goals have shifted a bit, which is why I need your help. I would like to go back to school. I want to go back to school so I can get my degrees andRead More →

I will not tolerate abusive or harassing behavior on my site. My site, my rules. Don’t like it? GTFO. This is to serve as both a trigger warning and a warning about NSFW language and/or images. I can remember exactly two instances from my past where my dress code was called into question. The first was when I was in high school, I wore a shirt from Save the Tatas. It simply said “My tatas could beat up your tatas”. This was prior to my breast reduction, and my breasts were (and still are) rather large. My best friend was wearing a shirt that saidRead More →

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews! I have had The Artisan’s Book of Fetishcraft for so incredibly long, and I have been trying to find a way to review it best. So when I finally got my hands on some leather, I was so excited, because I could finally try to DIY some BDSM gear! There is actually only one thing I don’t like about this book, and that is the fact that I wish there was more to craft. Seriously. I’m not even joking. I absolutely love this book so incredibly much. First off, there is anRead More →

This is to serve as both a trigger warning and a warning about NSFW language and/or images. I was intending on writing a lovely post to extol the virtues of my new favorite lube, however, I came home from my vacation to this shit. This post is going to be about the SCOTUS decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. Now, the overall takeaway for this is that Hobby Lobby WILL COVER all of the following forms of birth control: Male condoms Female condoms Diaphragms with spermicide Sponges with spermicide Cervical caps with spermicide Spermicide alone Birth-control pills with estrogen and progestin (“Combined Pill) Birth-control pills with progestinRead More →

Please remember to be polite and respectful in the comments. I frequently get contacted by people who wonder whether they are polyamorous or not. They ask whether they could even give non-monogamy a shot. Unfortunately there is no real quiz you can take to find out if polyamory is right for you, however some of your current behaviors and beliefs can help you decide whether or not non-monogamy is worth exploring. Are you comfortable with the idea that there is no normal? One of the coolest, and also hardest, parts of polyamory for me personally was the idea that there is no normal. There are so manyRead More →

This is to serve as both a content warning and a warning about NSFW language and/or images. Before I begin anything that I am about to say, I want to express my most heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims of the Santa Barbara tragedy. This was a tragedy that should never have happened. Let me repeat that for you, because it is important. This was a tragedy that should never have happened. The hardest part for me about writing this post was reading the manifesto, because of how blatantly obvious it was that society has created this dilemma. There were parts that made me sickRead More →

The Frisky Fairy Reviews favorite toys, books, blogs, and other fun sex education reviews! Been a while folks! I’ve got so much big news coming in the next few weeks that I’m about to pop, but I’ll keep it a secret just a little while longer and torment you all 😀  This week I’m reviewing The Oral Sex Position Guide by Emily Dubberley. I’ve read some of Emily’s work before in Field Guide To F*cking and I was really excited to see more.
