OB-GYN Kink Kit

I have always wondered how naughty and kinky I really am and, as you know, these articles are based on actual experience and I test every product reviewed, (with the help of willing test pilots). Today while browsing at a local “toy store”, I came across the, “OB-GYN Kink Kit”, from Pipedream Products Inc.

The  OB-GYN Kink Kit retails for about $129.00 and includes, 2 plastic forceps, a metal vaginal speculum and a vaginal scope complete with an LED light and built in vibe unit.

OB-GYN Kink KitThey also included a kinky nurse hat, (I would have preferred a surgical mask and surgical cap), a bottle of lube and a bottle of cleaning solution, (OK, the main part of this kit is the vaginal scope). While it is novel and unique, do not expect high definition optics but it certainly gets the freak out. Seriously, if you want high definition optics, there are videoscope kits you can get for about $200.00, (my next purchase of course).

The plastic forceps, I think are a good idea as they will bend and break if used too tightly, (metal ones can cause damage if used improperly – always  use caution). Finally the speculum, it is metal and of reasonable quality. Note: for beginners using  a speculum, please click here.

Overall as a novelty kit, it is a very cool idea, (it was especially hot using the vaginal scope, and I quote, ‘it made me feel really dirty knowing you were looking in there…”). . This kit is in no way “medical grade” so for those who are into “medical fetish”, this is not a product to consider. Now for you kinksters who wanted to add a new toy to the “tickle trunk”, while $129.00 is pricey, it is not a bad little weekend surprise for your playmate.

Remote Control

I was recently asked by a very special lady friend, what I would like for my birthday. I said to her, to go lingerie shopping with you. Well, she smiled and said “…really?” I said “yes”.

I think many of you already figured out that spending a day going to different lingerie shops and watching my sexy friend model for me and letting me eventually choose and enjoy her in is actually a real awesome gift…

Ok, so that is the lead up to this product review for remote control vibes. (Here is the skinny, she had to follow one request on this birthday gift, she had to have the remote controlled bullet in… yes, I am truly a dirty boy.)

Before this planned excursion I went to the friendly toy store to visit with a friend of mine and for the next two hours we tested eight remote vibe units, (on her suggestion we choose only insert-able bullet units). My test criteria included:

construction – water tight, no seams, safe surface
shape and size
vibe power
range
how loud it is

With any insertable toy, you should always consider these points:

– is the surface hard plastic, latex, silicone, glass or metal;
– is the over all construction solid;
– is there a retrieval string;
– are you allergic to the surface covering;
– are lubes safe for use with it;
– is it too big for you?

My friendly kinky store friend also pointed out that if the toy is inserted and we are out and about, it should be a larger bullet and to always wear panties so nothing can accidentally fall out… I asked about why a larger size and she explained, “it would be easier for her to hold in with kegals and gives her confidence it won’t accidentally slip… also, they can pack a more powerful motor and battery in something a little bigger than a finger bullet”. Two well taken points from a woman’s perspective. Guys, here is a hint, to know what to do with a girl, ask a girl!

As for vibe power, range and loudness, my friend made me put each bullet in my front pocket and walk around the store while she held the remote. After about an hour of giggles and laughs, I settled on the remote bullet by, “California Exotic Novelties LLC”, (retail $45.00 CND). But now, the final test, “range”. My friend sent me next door to my favorite dinner, (great food and very lovely staff ), to get coffee. While standing in line, my friend texted me an told me to text her when it was my turn to order. So I did. My phone rang and she asked I pass it to her friend at the till so she can order her low fat latte, vanilla etc.. so I did… Next moment, the lady look at me and asked what I wanted and “boom”, my naughty friend turned it on. I nearly jumped as she smiled and asked if I wanted room for cream… I must have had a funny look on my face as the other counter girls turned to look at me. She handed the phone back too me and said “that is a taste of what you are gonna do to your lady friend, now hurry up with my coffee!”.

Back in the store, we had a good chuckle about it. Then, the girl from the coffee shop came in an told us, “the vibe was quiet, but it was fun to watch you walk out while it was on!”. As my face went blush red, both girls broke out laughing.

The one thing to look for once you find a product that meets the above criteria is batteries! Many smaller units use hearing aid batteries and though small, get used up quickly. The unit I purchased used larger batteries found in cameras and are longer lasting.

Final thoughts, if there is truly a brilliant pervert sex toy developer out there, take this wireless remote idea, make it bluetooth and create an app that controls it through a smartphone and add a feature “lover’s remote” so while the bullet is controlled by an app on her phone, I can take control of the app from my phone and turn on ” Face-Time” to watch her…

Boot Blacking

Recently I attended a fetish workshop where the topics featured a range of  interests. On which caught me attention was “boot blacking”. This to me was an excellent example of a D/s situation where in the Dominant has his/her boot cleaned and polished while worn, by a submissive. The object of the fetish, for the submissive are the boots and the Dominant of course enjoys the voyeuristic appeal of the submissive enjoying the object of fetish. The encounter although initiated by the “boot blacking”, can have endless possibilities at the pleasure of the Dominant.

In adapting this to my own personal situation, I first trained my submissive how I wanted her to clean and polish by dress boots (instructions later in the article).

We home as usual after a nice Sunday brunch and after entering the house I ordered her to kneel. I pulled up a chair sat down and stretched out presenting her with my soiled boots (still on). Prior to this, I had left a bucket, cleaning cloth and brushes for her, so she knew what her task was to be. For several minutes she washed and cleaned my boots and the soles so we could go into the living room (without tracking in street soil). Once there, I sat on the couch and ordered her to get the polish kit.

She arrived with her kit and I instructed her to set it down first and undress to her panties, then to kneel and begin polishing my boots. I watched as she placed my booted foot on her thigh and began applying the polish to one and then the second boot. She then took the first boot back on to her lap and started to shine the boot. I had instructed her on spit polishing, which she did well on both toes of the boot.

Standing up, she knew her task was to know complete the polishing of the heel and back to the boots. I watched as she crawled around on the floor at my feet to complete this task. Once done, I sat back down to let her inspect her work. I watched as she licked the toe of the boot to apply more spit, allowing her to buff and shine to perfection. For me this was all very erotic, to watch as she showed to me her complete submission in cleaning and polishing and crawling around my feet on the floor ensuring a complete shine and polish, ready for my inspection…

This was simply my adaptation to what was explained as a ritual sometimes practiced by “leather men and their boys”. From experiencing this for myself, the control aspect was exhilarating. The presenter also discussed safe shoe polishes for such intimate play and strongly advised against anything with harsh chemicals or silicone.

I chose to use very basic natural products, beeswax and mink oil. Beeswax is a natural ingredient with many purposes. It is used to make many cosmetic products such as lipstick and lip balm, and it is also used to polish and shine leather products like shoes and jackets. Applying beeswax to leather shoes removes stains caused by water, dirt and salt, and it also improves the quality of the leather. Polishing with beeswax will also make the leather shiny, waterproof and prevents cracks from forming.

Mink oil protects leather boots from moisture, salt and other things that can damage them. It also softens the leather, making boots more comfortable to wear. Mink oil is obtained from the fatty hide of a mink and sold to condition boots. Some mink oil products are mixed with beeswax, which adds to the protection of the leather.

To polish using beeswax you will need a soft cloth and a polishing cloth

1. Clean your leather boots with mild soap and water to remove surface dust and dirt.
2. Take a quarter-sized amount of beeswax and begin polishing your shoes with your fingers.
3. Cover the entire boot with the beeswax, rubbing deeply into the leather.
4. Take a soft washcloth or small terry cloth towel and use it to buff and shine the surface of the boot.
5. Allow the beeswax to absorb into the leather for a few hours before wearing them.
6. Add a second layer of beeswax between the sole and the upper portion of the boot if you live in a cold area and need extra waterproofing.

To polish using mink oil, you will need a hair dryer, soft cloths and a polishing cloth.

1. Warm the boots with a hair dryer, or set them or over a heat vent for a few minutes. Heating the leather will help it absorb the oil.
2. Spread the cloth over your fingers, and use them to scoop out enough of the mink oil paste to cover your fingers from the first knuckle to the tips. Rub the mink oil into the boots until it turns clear and begins to melt into the leather.
3. Repeat step two, conditioning your boots one section at a time, until both boots have been covered with the paste.
4. Wipe off any paste that got on the laces or soles of the boots.
5. Allow the boots to dry overnight, and apply a second coat of mink oil following the directions above.

Mink oil may cause some leather to become slightly darker. To apply the mink oil, a chamois cloth works well, or simply use a scrap of flannel from an old shirt. Paper towels will work if that’s all you have. It will not damage non-leather parts of your boots, so there’s no need to be too careful about the application. Reapply the mink oil every few months to keep your boots protected.

Mink oil can also be used to condition other leather so the possibilities can be endless and pleasurable. In this case I was thinking of having her polish my leather jock strap while wearing it.

Using natural products (provided there is no allergy to them), allowed my sub to use her body parts as part of the polishing ritual while being safe. Remember the basis of this scene is the boot or foot worship and is built around the task of cleaning and polishing boots. You as the Dominant control the scene and you as a submissive have plenty of opportunity to be creative in how you choose to use you body to perform this task.

Code d’ Odalisque

20121118-091758.jpg

Recently I discovered a new variation on the Master/slave or the D/s theme of which I am both fascinated with and practice. It is “Code d’ Odalisque”, which is a system of sexual submission which I am more inclined to practice than the typical BDSM themes. I wanted to share with readers of ViceNews.ca and I have included two well prepared website links to this topic.

Much of the research has been done and explained so what this article is, is more of a short commentary, with links to articles which better explain the “Code d’ Odalisque”. The following passage comes from the site:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:CoderCat and is written by Coder Cat whose account of “Code d’ Odalisque” is very thoughtfully written.

“Code d’ Odalisque is a genre or style of non-violent consensual slave play engaged in by willing adult men and women. It is a modern revival of aspects of the historical institution of odalisque (female sexual servant) in a consensual form. Play is guided by a written code of rules, etiquette and protocols. The genre or style is an alternative sub-culture within the broader BDSM community; play includes aspects of bondage and discipline, dominance and submission but not sado-masochism. The use of pain and degradation is forbidden under the Code. The values of the Code are hedonistic and pleasure-oriented combining exotic elements from Turkish/Persian erotic culture with modern, Western hardcore tastes. The structure of play is based upon the relationship between a male Slavekeeper and a female slave. Play is essentially heterosexual in character. ”

In her article, she references the code, which was compiled and published by ” the Guild of the Black Pearl” and is available for download in its entirety here: http://www.aramisduval.com/mainsite/images/stories/easternimagery/code.pdf

Though the code asserts non-sadomasochitic themes and practice, I have adopted to this, elements of corporal punishment. To reconcile this to the code, I use this as an element of sensation for pleasure then a physical means to assert dominance. The reason behind this deviation is for the cockslave’ benefit. That is to provide the experience of “sub space”. The euphoria submissives in my service, experience during and after an intense spanking. During these sessions, because of the spanking, their bodies release endorphins and adrenaline.The result of this hormonal cocktail combined with the imagery and context of submission creates the experience termed “sub space”.

You will find many references and websites talking about “Code d’ Odalisque”, however, on review, the two provided offer the most clearly defined explinations. To summarize my thoughts on the differences between BDSM as I used to practice verses “Code d’ Odalisque”, the central theme of “pain is pleasure” is now replaced with “pleasure in service”. In both cases though the basics of consensual, sane and safe is always the rule.

Spicing Things Up – the Joy of Figging

Fetish play opens the realm of the sexual experience to new sensations and emotions through fantasy, the mutual acceptance of a situation, (role play), ritual and the use of non-traditional items as props or sexual implements. A sensation technique taken from Victorian times has its roots in in horse trading. This technique, called figging, was used to make tired, old horses appear spry and energetic. Ginger root was used and was peeled back, exposing the fleshy part of the root, then it was inserted into the horse’s anus. The ginger, a mild irritant, caused the horses to appear more energetic as it would prance around with it’s tail raised. The mild burning sensation was short lived and quickly dissipated on removal, causing no lasting effects.

Also referred to as “gingering”, figging became popular in Victorian times as a part of corporal punishment. Where, when the master of the household wished to increase the torment of a young woman in his charge, the fig was used in conjunction with spanking. Once inserted, the natural tendency would be for the sphincter muscle to contract around the fig, increasing the “burning” sensation. The hapless young woman would do everything in her power to remain relaxed to minimize the fig’s effect, however in doing so she would also relax the muscles in her bottom making her spanking all the the more intense. Fast forward to today and in the context of fetish play, you have the mental aspects of humiliation and submission, as well, the sensations of the spanking and the “ginger effect”.

First, before considering incorporating ginger into your play, ensure your playmate is not allergic to ginger! When selecting ginger roots, choose fresh ginger, although older roots are more potent, they are not as succulent or juicy making insertion difficult. Do not use lubricant as it will coat the root minimizing or blocking the effect. To aid in insertion, simply moisten the root in room temperature water.

When preparing your fig, select a piece of ginger approx 3-4 inches in length and 2-3 inches round. You simply begin by peeling off the “skin” of the root. Once removed, you will find the root fiberous and firm. Carefully carve the root into the shape of a butt plug. This shape will hold your fig in place once inserted. I usually leave a short length after the collar to make it easy to manipulate and to remove. If you do wish to “develop” the potency of your fig, once prepared in plastic wrap and age it several days. Once again to aid in insertion, simply moisten in room temperature water.

Ginger root effect is intense but short lived once removed. It is also ideal as a stand alone sensation and can lead to many interesting and possibly memorable scenes. Have fun and play safe!
