Key™ Ceres G Spot Vibrator by Jopen®

 
This vibrator is made by an American company called Jopen®. The company is the first major adult novelty store to be owned and operated by a woman. They have an all-woman product development team. They're located in California.

This vibrator is from their Key™ line and this model is called Ceres G Spot Massager. It comes in lavender, blue and pink. I own the lavender.

MATERIAL: This is made from silicone. Silicone is top of the line material- the best you can get. It's nonporous and hypoallergenic. Silicone is supposed to be odorless but it usually has a slight scent, and not a bad one. Silicone toys are usually seamless and this one is and it's ultra smooth.

The screw off base is semi-translucent ABS plastic that resembles glass. ABS plastic is hypoallergenic. The push button is made from alloy.
 
MEASUREMENTS: Overall length is 7 3/4". Insertable length is 5 1/2". The head has a pretty bulbus diameter of 1.6". It tapers a bit to 1.4" in diameter, then to a slim 1.1". With batteries in, it weighs 6.7 oz/191 g.
 
MAINTENANCE: Just use very hot soapy water. Lately I've been using baby wash, since I use that in the shower anyway. Silicone toys (NOT vibrators!) can be boiled or put into the dishwasher.

You cannot store your silicone toys directly touching each other. Touching will break down the silicone over time. Wrap them in something like plastic wrap first or put into a plastic storage bag. If you can find satin pouches for each of them, that'll work fine.

LUBE: You must use water-based lube with silicone. Silicone lube will break down silicone toys and other lube materials aren't good for it. I like one called Sassy Booty by Sliquid.
 
PACKAGING: I love the cardboard packaging. No difficult plastic to cut open. It's 9 3/4"L X 3 1/2"W X 2" D. The top of the box lifts off just below where it has the Key™ logo on the bottom left. The storage box opens up like a book and the vibrator is cradled in hard black foam. Under the foam is a little booklet with instructions and a black satin pouch to store the toy in, should you choose to.
 
FEATURES:  This is waterproof so it can be used under water in the bath tub or shower. Just make sure the base is screwed on tightly. This has seven different pulse patterns that are a bit hard to describe, so I won't bother. They're controlled by a push-button on the bottom of the base. This uses two AA batteries.
 
G SPOT ORGASMS: According to what I've read, your G spot is located anywhere from 1-3" inside the vagina, against the front wall and is supposedly the size of a bean. I think mine is maybe two inches inside.

When using a G spot toy it isn't necessary to thrust the whole thing inside to achieve an orgasm, though you can if you want. When the orgasm is starting you should concentrate on thrusting the just the tip of the dildo against the G spot. If using a G spot vibrator you should hold it in place against the G spot once the orgasm starts. You'll definitely feel where it's located while orgasming. Or you can just leave it in place where you think your G spot is and not thrust it at all.
 
MY THOUGHTS: Quality best describes this. It's hard to tell from a photo but this toy looks expensive in person. I think the head is solid silicone but obviously the shaft isn't since it's got the vibrating mechanism in it. It has a slight bit of flexibility to it. It's not super long and when inserted, it's easy to hold on to. Some longer toys aren't too comfortable to hold. Like all vibrators, this vibrates strongly which can be bit numbing on the hands. I guess that would be the only complaint.

I grade this an A and I do recommend it. It's a bit pricy but it's worth it. It's my favorite one so far!

THE BUTTERFLY SISTER by Amy Gail Hansen

butterflysisterPUB. INFO: William Morrow 8/2013
GENRE: Contemporary Mystery
SETTING: Illinois & Wisconsin, USA
AUTHOR SITE: link
MY GRADE: D

FROM PUBLISHER: Twenty-two-year-old Ruby Rousseau is haunted by memories of Tarble, the women's college she fled from ten months earlier, and the painful love affair that pushed her to the brink of tragedy.

When a suitcase belonging to a former classmate named Beth arrives on her doorstep, Ruby is plunged into a dark mystery. Beth has gone missing, and the suitcase is the only tangible evidence of her whereabouts.

Inside the bag, Ruby discovers a tattered copy of Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own, the book she believes was a harbinger of her madness. Is someone trying to send her a message--and what does it mean?

The search for answers leads to Tarble. As Ruby digs into Beth's past, she has no choice but to confront her own--an odyssey that will force her to reexamine her final days at school, including the married professor who broke her heart and the ghosts of illustrious writers, dead by their own hand, who beckoned her to join their tragic circle.

But will finding the truth finally set Ruby free . . . or send her over the edge of sanity?

MY THOUGHTS: This story sounded so unique but turned out to be uninteresting and farfetched. I stared to lose interest early on shortly after the suitcase was delivered to Ruby. Most of the plot was about Ruby's past professor-turned-boyfriend Mark from a year before. She goes to a college reunion and we, the reader, get dragged through implausible situations, right until the end. I was really annoyed at all the suicide/attempted suicide attempts revolving around Mark. It's was overkill and made me roll my eyes. No way could one person, in his case Mark, attract that many unstable women.

Virginia Barnard's letter to her dead sister in the epilogue did make me smile even though the stuff involving Virginia isn't likely to ever happen. Virginia's on a quest to repeat her past in a new setting- a hospital. Sounds like a set-up for a sequel but there's not to be one.

Not a good book and I can't recommend it to anyone. The embossed cover is beautiful though!

RATING: XXX
MY GRADE: B

From DVD: Jonni Darkko once again brings his brand of anal madness to the screen. Euro chicks get plowed in this ass stretching sexcapade. The master of the ass unleashes yet another volume of anal lust destined for your collection.

NO CONDOMS WERE USED.

SCENE 1: Daniella is wearing a dress and is standing in front of a wall indoors. She gets on all fours and fingers her ass. Over walks Dillon, naked. She blows him for a short while. Reverse cowgirl vaginal sex on floor briefly. She gets off and blows him, then gets back on. Blows him then gets on once again. Next, anal reverse cowgirl with her rubbing her clit. She blows him, gets back on for more anal. Anal doggie position. She blows him then he puts it back in her ass. Cowgirl position anal now, then she blows him. Spoon position anal on their right sides, her rubbing her clit a lot. She's kneeling beside him while he comes on her face.

Daniella's from the Czech Republic. She's got really nice natural breasts and bald labia. She's got blue eyes and is freckly with freckles on her ass cheeks. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

SCENE 2: Michelle is on the bed in black lingerie. She takes her thong off and gets on all fours. Trent comes over, naked, and eats her pussy and asshole from behind since they were on offer. He pours lube on her asshole and puts a double-ended rubber dildo in it and fucks her with it. He moves in front of her so she can blow him. He fucks her ass a little with the dildo as she blow him. He moves behind her and fucks her pussy while the dildo is in her ass. He takes it out and puts his dick in in its place. Cowgirl position anal briefly. She gets in reverse cowgirl position to continue the anal. She's rubbing her clit. She lays back against him and he rubs her clit. Spoon position anal on their right sides. I wish you could hear her wailing in misery the whole time. She's now on her back, him kneeling in front, pushing her legs back toward her, for more anal. He comes on her face while she's kneeling beside him and what noise he was making. He was also breathing heavy the entire time and I like hearing it.

Michelle's from England and has blue eyes. She too has really nice natural breasts but has since gotten huge implants. Her labia is bald. She's on Twitter.

SCENE 3: Jessica's in red stockings and  black thong. She's topless and rubbing her nipples, then pussy. She's on all fours on the bed when Dillon goes over and fingers her pussy, then asshole. He has her lick his finger. He fucks her vaginally from behind. He stands up and she blows him. Reverse cowgirl vaginal, then anal, with his balls jerking up and down the whole time, in rhythm to his thrusts. She's rubbing and smacking her clit. She gets off him, blows him then gets back on three times. Doggie position anal, she blows him, then resumes anal, then more blowing. Anal on her back with him kneeling between her legs. She clearly has an orgasm from anal sex. She's sweating like you wouldn't believe. He kneels over her face so she can suck him once again then he puts it back in her ass. Anal from behind. She's standing up and leaning on the footboard with her left leg up. He comes on her face.

She's cute with small natural breasts and bald labia. She's from the Czech Republic.

SCENE 4: Lena's kneeling on the sofa blowing Mark (he's Canadian) while he's standing. Vaginal sex on her back on the sofa, him standing. She blows him, then doggie position on sofa, him standing behind her. Anal in same position. Anal reverse cowgirl. She blows him, more anal in same position, more blowing, more anal. He comes on her face.

Lena's from Columbia and was only eighteen at the time. She's got nice small natural breasts. Her aureolas and nipples are the darkest brown. Her whole vulva was bald but you can see the hair growing back.

SCENE 5: Sabina is kneeling in a chair blowing Dillon, who's standing to the right of it. Brett is fingering her with two fingers, then fucks her from behind. She kneels and blows them at the same time for awhile. Brett's in a chair, she's on top facing him and blowing Dillon, who's standing to her left. Anal in reverse cowgirl with Dillon while blowing Brett. His massive dick curves downward. Anal from behind with Brett while leaning forward in chair blowing Dillon who is, as usual, standing in front of her. Anal in spoon position with Dillon on sofa on their left sides. She's blowing Brett, who's in front of her. Reverse cowgirl anal with Dillon, then Brett, who's sitting right next to them on a love seat, then she gets back on Dillon for more anal. She's rubbing the hell out of her clit. Brett come on her face, then Dillon.

Sabina's the girl on the DVD cover. She's from the Czech Republic. She cute with blue eyes and tiny natural breasts. Her aureola's are tiny and her nipples are huge.

BONUS MATERIAL

There was a bonus sex scene from Double Play 1 but I fast forwarded through part of it.

There was seven minutes of behind the scenes. Michelle, from scene 2, said, when asked, that she was from Sheffield, England and has only been in the business eleven days. When they were about to film her scene with Trent the director told him that her vagina was sore (from something previous) and that he could do all anal if he wanted and that there's to be no ATM (ass-to-mouth) scenes.

MY THOUGHTS: The cover says there's double penetration but there's not, unless you count the anal dildo in scene 2. This was just an alright DVD. No scene was great. Far too much switching between oral and penetration going on in each scene. It's annoying and sorta ruins the scene.

Most scenes were the same. I'm not a fan of Dillon's. He's one of those assholes who's always calling the girl a slut or whore.

Every scene except one had lots of ATM (ass to mouth) which I don't really care to see. In case you don't know what that is it's when a dick's been in your ass then you put it in your mouth for a blow job.

Trent Tesoro, from scene 2, was dating porn actor Ashley Blue during this time. They were both drug addicts but Ashley said in her book that he's gotten off them and no longer does porn (I think).

Surprise, surprise, there's next to no female oral sex.

LADY ANNE'S LOVER by Maggie Robinson

ladyannesloverPUBLISHER: Brava, 8/2013
GENRE: Historical Romance
SETTING: Wales, 1820/21
SERIES: The London List, book 3
PURCHASE: link
AUTHOR SITE: link
MY GRADE: C

FROM PUBLISHER: Lady Imaculata Anne Egremont has appeared in the scandalous pages of the London List often enough. The reading public is so bored with her nonsense, she couldn't make news now unless she took a vow of chastity. But behind her naughty hijinks is a terrible fear. Its time the list helped her. With a quick scan through its job postings and a few whacks at her ridiculous name, she's off to keep house for a bachelor veteran as plain Anne Mont.

Major Gareth Ripton-Jones is dangerously young and handsome on the face of it, but after losing his love and his arm in short order, he is also too deep in his cups to notice that his suspiciously young housekeeper is suspiciously terrible at keeping house. Until, that is, her sharp tongue and her burnt coffee penetrate even his misery - and the charm underneath surprises them both. Trust the worst cook in Wales to propose a most unexpected solution to his troubles...



MY THOUGHTS: I'm sorry to say this was a letdown. It started out interesting enough. The heroine, nineteen year old, red-haired, hazel-eyed Imaculata aka Anne/Annie, is escaping her father, who's tried to molest her for the past four years, since her mother died. She flees England for Wales and is employed by the hero, dark haired, blue-eyed Gareth, thirty-three.

Gareth is an alcoholic who lost part of his left arm after it wouldn't heal properly after he broke it. People also think he's guilty of killing his lover, Bronwen. She was raped and strangled. He's also destitute and Anne comes along at the right time- he's about to lose his home.

Anne comes up with a plan to help them both out of a bad situation. They say I love you far too soon and marry too soon. Once the plan is decided upon I lost interest in them (it happened so early on) but not in finding out who really killed Bronwen. That subplot was desperately needed because the main story wasn't enough to hold my interest. Everything just went too fast with them and there was nothing left for the author to talk about.

Both lead characters were likeable and there was no conflict, which I feel is necessary. I hate when they get along so well right from the start. We learned nothing about Gareth before he went off to war. I need backstory on Gareth that goes back more than a year, which was how long it had been since he'd lost part of his arm. The only thing we learned about his past was Bronwen, who turned out to be a not so great person. We learned nothing about his childhood.

The author switches between calling the heroine Anne and Annie far too often. I also didn't like his cousin Ian at all nor the cast of characters who were involved with the wedding. I think he was written into the story for one reason only.

The ending with her father was so unbelievable that it left me shaking my head. The story could have been so much better, darker and deeper, what with the alcoholic hero and almost-molested heroine. That dark subject matter wasn’t handled well at all. The story just ended up being bland.

Please see my old interview with Maggie here.

AFTER PORN ENDS Documentary

I stumbled upon this great documentary on ex-porn actors who were at the top during the 80's and 90's. Some of the ones interviewed are Asia Carrera (Mensa member!), Nina Hartley, Mary Carey, Houston, Crissy Moran, Randy West, Richard Pacheco, John Leslie, Amber Lynn, Seka, Raylene, Bill Margold, Shelley Lubben, Tiffany Million.

It was released in the U.S. in May 2012 and appears to be an Amazon Instant Video only, no DVD. It's not rated but isn't too graphic. It's pretty good and I know of most of the people interviewed. I give it a solid B.




TIGER’S EYE by Karen Robards

PUB. INFO: Avon, 1989
GENRE: Historical Romance
SETTING: England, 1814
AUTHOR SITE: link
MY GRADE: A+

From Publisher: Lady Isabella St. Just is shocked to learn the identity of the daring champion who comes to her aid -- for the man who rescues her from desperate felons is none other than Alec Tyron, the notorious king of London's underworld. Now she is beholden to an outlaw who is respected and feared throughout the city and stunned by her own intense desire for this dark man of mystery. Fate has united these strangers from opposite lives -- the beautiful aristocrat and the brazen criminal outlaw. And now that the flame has been lit, no power on Earth will quench the fire of their passion...or destroy a love that society cannot allow.

SPOILER SUMMARY: Isabella is twenty-three and in a loveless marriage to Bernard. Her mother is dead and her father doesn't seem to liker her at all, especially after remarrying years before. She's out in her carriage one day and is kidnapped and held captive at an inn. The kidnappers plan to kill her. After escaping through the window she meets Alec and his friend Paddy. They help her hide out at a brothel Alec owns.

Alec (golden hair/golden eyes) grew up on the streets and doesn't know his parents. He's twenty-eight. He met Paddy and Pearl along the way and has maintained a lifelong friendship with both. Pearl has been his lover the whole time.

Pearl runs a brothel that Alec owns and ends up getting very jealous of Alec and Isabelle's relationship. There's an unrelated subplot of someone trying to kill Alec at the brothel. Alec discovers that Isabelle's husband is behind her kidnapping but she doesn't believe him. Alec won't take her home so, with Pearl's help, she leaves for home without Alec's knowledge. She can't get inside the house and Alec finds her at a restaurant and persuades her to come live with him at his home and help him become a gentleman by tutoring him.

After three months of Isabelle being away from her husband, Pearl's jealousy has reached it limit and she informs Bernard of where Isabelle is, knowing full well that he's already tried to kill Isabelle. She's out walking one day and is kidnapped by Bernard. They travel home and with her father and stepmother, travel to France and stay for awhile, in case there's any scandal caused Isabelle, a married woman, being away from her husband for three months.

Alec discovers what Pearl has done and tracks Isabelle down at a party in France. She tells him she has to stay with her husband and Alec leaves with his feelings hurt. He's already told Isabelle he loves her. Three months later, still in Paris, Bernard goes up to Isabelle outside and starts talking to her, telling her he poisoned his first wife Lydia and that's what killed her, not a 'weak heart'. He grabs her hand and tried to pull her toward the cliff but she resists. He smashes her in the head with a rock twice and Alec shows up and pulls a gun on him. Bernard asks him who he is then realizes he must be the one Isabelle was with for the three months she was away. He moves toward Alec and Alec shoots and kills him. Isabelle's father and stepmother happened to see what happened and now, after she was almost killed by Bernard again he believes her original story about Bernard trying to kill her.

Her father learns from Alec that for the whole three months she's been back with Bernard Alec has had men watching her and even had one working in the house because he was scared Bernard would try to kill her again. Alec leaves for England. Three months later Isabella shows up at the brothel. He's in the tub and she tells him she loves him and they decide to get married. She gets in the tub with him.

MY THOUGHTS: This is one of my top favorite books of all-time and is one of the author's favorites. I first read it around 1995/96 after buying it at K-Mart. I'd only been reading novels for two or three years at that point. In fact, most of my favorites were read around that time.

Isabella is very likeable. A little too meek and passive though. She should have gone back to England with Alec the first time, not hung around France for no reason. I'm a little surprised she cheated on her husband. She seems a little too straight and narrow to have done something like that.

Alec is just alpha enough for me. He's another child of the street who's made something of himself as a businessman. That's a common theme in these books, rags to riches.

Her father's a real piece of crap. When she first told him Bernard hired people to kill her he didn't believe her and even suggested to Bernard that he 'beat her' if he has to, anything to keep from getting divorced and having to deal with a scandal. He's sickening.

Adultery isn't extremely common in historical romances and I liked that about this one. The story was interesting from the very first page when Isabella was abducted at night on the highway. The plot was really good. I don't think I've ever read about a heroine almost getting murdered by her husband before in a historical romance. I like her first meeting with Alec when she escapes her captors. There's also an exciting part when they're staying at an inn after someone tries to kill Alec at the brothel and they're still after him. Turns out Alec bought a home from someone and he's angry that he lost his home in the first place, so he's out to kill Alec. That reason is lame but it's fun and interesting to read about his murder attempts and try to figure out the who and why of it.

There weren't any slow or boring parts to me in this story. Unlike in some romances, Alec and Isabella's love was believable but I don't like that she didn't go with him back to England after her murder attempt.
