Goodfella's Color (and a Little Preview...)

0 comments
I had originally purchased the medium skin tone, as you all know. After finding that it was a bit too dark for my skin's coloration, I sent it back to Edenfantasys in exchange for the lightest Goodfella. Here are pictures comparing the two, so maybe this will help you when deciding which color to get for yourself!


And now, a little preview of what I recently got in the mail and will be reviewing soon...

Bare as You Dare Harness by Sportsheets

0 comments
The Bare as You Dare harness is truly just as good (if not better) than any other harness now on the market. Though it doesn't compare to my Joque, it's excellent because it not only works well and is sturdy, but it's also made of minimal material to give a "bare" look. It's one of the lowest priced harnesses that can be found, which makes it especially ideal. For individuals new to, curious about, or interested in wearing harnesses, the Bare as You Dare harness is excellent, and can be found over at Fascinations for only $25.

Now, the reason why I am showing Fascinations' shipping box is because I just absolutely loved the filling that they put in it. Pink paper strips? Yeah, it's pretty cool. They also added a business card for easy contact and finding. Pretty neat. They always use discreet shipping for their orders, so you can be sure that any order placed will be sent quickly and safely, without anyone knowing what's inside of your brown box.

Made with only three thin nylon straps, the Bare as You Dare harness is made of so little that it's easy to tuck it away in a drawer or fit it in a piece of luggage (or purse). It's also great for use in terms of packing or for wearing under clothes. I really found that, during use, the Bare as You Dare harness does not scratch or itch, but when worn for longer periods of time it tends to move and chafe in aggravating and embarrassing places.

The harness is a g-string style harness, and though this is not my favorite (actually, I do not like them at all usually—I felt like picking at my ass the entire time I was wearing it), it was still relatively comfortable and not too intrusive. Some people are completely opposed to wearing thong or g-string style harnesses, and for those people, this harness obviously would not be the best as its minimal material can and will dig into the individual's genitals and ass.

Pictures of the o-ring removed from the harness. Pretty hardware.

The Bare as You Dare's o-ring is metal and interchangeable. It attaches to the harness via snaps (that can be a bit difficult to open, I'll warn), which means that it can be removed and replaced with silicone or rubber o-rings. This makes the harness especially specific and personal to each individual wearing it. Since the o-ring is basically bare, it's important that it does not cut the wearer's skin and is properly sealed (which it is, I am happy to report). Its diameter is 1½", meaning that it should fit most harness-compatible dildos.

The back of the harness.

There's an o-ring on the back of the harness, and I still have not found its purpose. It is not interchangeable and cannot be removed. I assume that this is for ease of moving and breathing, but it would have been just fine with a strap in its place. I just don't know! I mean, hey, if you want to get a little pretty, it's a perfect place to add a tail or leash (which is actually a perfect idea for those who have kitties)!

Since the harness is made out of only nylon and metal, it's extremely easy to clean. You can either wipe it down with soap and water in the sink, or throw it into the washing machine with your other clothes. Nylon is not a material that should bleed, but you may want to wash it in the sink before putting it in the wash with light clothing. I personally only wipe it down after wearing it, but after repeated wear, it's best to put it in the washing machine.

For me, I find that the harness would be made better if it was a double strap (because I just do not like having the string up my tush!). Honestly, I might even be able to say (if it was made in this way) that it would be better than my (oh no!) Joque! The nylon, though thin, does not give rug burn and is very discreet under clothing. And even though it does become a bit uncomfortable after wearing for longer periods of time, people who wear thongs regularly will be used to this feeling. It's really a good harness, which I am glad to have reviewed!

A special thanks to Fascinations for sending me this harness, free of charge, for my honest review. Thank you!

Favorite Fridays

So what will I be showing you all for this week's Favorite Fridays? Well, none other than my beautiful Luxe White Collar, that's what! (Or my little girl's collar, I should say.) This beautiful, thick, endearing collar is just absolutely gorgeous. The leather is colored beautifully, the stitching and studding is absolutely beautiful, and ASLAN Leather even has a Lifetime Warranty on all of their leather products. Exquisite, and safe? I think so—no, I know so.

Premium, padded white leather bondage collar
The lovely Luxe White Collar.

So I've heard some talk that this beauty looks like a neck brace. In all honesty, it sort of does, but that's what I like about it. It's almost like a posture collar with its width of about 3", and its extreme structure and toughness. This collar is definitely one to be reckoned with against all of the usual black, thin, "regular" collars. It's also got a really large o-ring, which looks really cute as it falls against my girl's chest.

Not only is the collar firm, but its interior is plush and soft, so it makes this collar much less firm than a posture collar, but more firm than an everyday collar. I also find that it looks perfect when matched with a naked body. It's great for rough play, and it stands up to just about any pressure that you can put it under. And did I mention that it closes by a locking buckle? Yeah. It's perfect.

Wishlist Wednesdays

0 comments
Welcome to another Wishlist Wednesdays, brought to you by..well...me! As usual, I'll be featuring five products from my Edenfantasys wishlist, giving you a little mantra about each of them, and then it's over and you do not have to read anymore, the end (which at that point, you will be saying, "Thank god this damn post is over!") So enjoy, and I hope that you like my picks!



Multi-speed vibrating massager with multiple attachments and warming properties.
Infrared Massager

The person who actually got me interested in this large massager was Carrie Ann because of her splendid review on it. Just thinking of the thing heating up for a good massage really got me interested in owning it for myself. And what's better? It can possibly double for a clitoral vibrator, though I'll obviously only be using it for nice, deep massages.


Sturdy leather thigh harness with D-ring buckles and 2" dildo O-ring.
The Fix Thigh Harness

I'll be honest, I was not too interested in this thigh harness when I first saw it. I originally thought to myself, "Hm, now what would I use that for?" But after thinking more deeply on what I could use it for, I quickly added it to my wishlist. Lap dances taken to the next level, anyone? Yeah, I'm certainly buying this beautiful thing. I'm still contemplating what color I want..hm...


Three piece lingerie set, comes with shelf bra g-string and garter belt.
Lace-Over Satin Bra and Garter Set

All of the great reviews on this set make it sound like such a wonderful lingerie addition! I personally love the accents, the beautiful lace and pink ribbon, and how it's so classy but sweet and cute at the same time. It's really a well-thought out set, and it's extremely attractive. One of my favorite pieces of the set is the bra, because it's an under-the-bust bra top. Mm, I just love those.


Handmade leather bridle with buckle closure
Leather Pony Bridle

What to say, what to say...honestly, this one is pretty self explanatory. Though I just bought this recently, I am still listing it here as a Wishlist pick because, honestly, it's gorgeous. It's beautiful, and Sinvention's leather products are just so perfect. For pony play enthusiasts or fetishists like me (I love pony play accessories, just not owning a pony), this pony bridle is just exquisite. Do add it to your wishlist and hopefully buy it—it's worth the money, definitely.


Premium white padded leather ankle cuffs
Luxe White Ankle Cuffs

I actually own the Luxe White Wrist restraints, which are nice and plush, thick, and finished with locking buckles. ASLAN Leather's products are beautiful, and these are no exception. I also have the matching collar, so who can blame me for wanting to, you know, finish up the set? It'll look perfect, and work perfectly during play too.

Editor’s Pick

  • Fun Factory Bootie by Hamilton Hexx
  • Shake, shake, shake….shake your Bootie!

    It’s not very often that I can look at a toy and go “Awwwwww”, but the Bootie from Fun Factory has a serious cute factor to it. Maybe it’s just the name of the toy, Bootie, that makes me smile. Maybe if it was named the Destroyer or Annihilator it would lose its cute factor

    Note: Now due to this review I have “Shake Your Booty” stuck in my head. That’s not enough for you? Well, it’s also well-written and features an image of Fun Factory’s strangest side-of-the-box warning. Check it out.

Silicone Ball Gag by Sinvention

3 comments
Sinvention is one of my favorite leather companies, along with ASLAN Leather and Leatherbeaten. Mm, so good. For a leather fetishist like me, just looking at a website like theirs makes me groan, their products are just so good. When I was given the chance to review Sinvention's Silicone Ball Gag, sold at Edenfantasys, you know that I took it up! Edenfantasys also carries some of their other products, like their beautiful pony gear, that I am just..mm, dying to get. But back to their lovely Silicone Ball Gag.

It's put together in such a way that it's secure for struggling, feisty submissives (you know who you are!) and for those who want to make sure that their love is not going to twist and wiggle out of this gag. Not only does the Silicone Ball Gag have a locking buckle (yes, locking, which means that you can put a luggage-sized lock through the hole on the buckle to lock this gag into place), but it also can be fully disassembled for easy clean-up after play because the front piece snaps off of the straps.

There are eight different slits for adjustment, ranging from a circumference of 14" to 20". On the strap that has the buckle attached to it is a little loop that allows the extra length of the adjustment strap to sit in it, rather than flopping around behind the wearer's head. This works really well for my little girl since most of the length is left hanging—because of the loop, it now is secure and makes for a smoother look; it also keeps the gag from accidentally getting undone, if not locked.

The gag's straps are made of a thick, high quality leather that's honestly not very flexible at all. It doesn't move around much, but it's easily fit and bent around a partner's head, so much so that the straps are extremely comfortable and smooth. The leather strap in the front, which holds the gag, is a lot more thin and flexible, as it must be in order to sit on the wearer's face and also allow the gag for easy removal for cleaning.

So the gag that comes with Sinvention's ball gag is fairly large, which is a normal size for a ball gag. Its diameter is 1¾", which can be hard on smaller mouths as well as people with jaw problems. I mean, think about it...that diameter is bigger than some people can take vaginally or anally, so imagine it being in your mouth! My girl tends to have a lot of problems, so to work up to the gag's diameter, we sometimes use a bit gag first and switch over. I definitely recommend this to people more advanced with ball gags and who know that they are able to handle such sized balls (no pun intended).

The left is comparing Sinvention's ball to ASLAN Leather's ball from their ASLAN Silicone Ball Gag. They're almost the same sizein other words, large! The image on the right is displaying the locking buckle.

I'm not only saying that people more advanced should use this because of the size of the ball. The other reason is because this thing locks. Yes, it locks. That means that the wearer cannot get it off in any way, shape or form, and if something happens, it will take a few seconds for the person supervising to get it off of them. Imagine being in a hurtful position and being at the mercy of another person's rushing time to get the thing off (alright, some of you are maybe drooling now, but that wasn't the intention).

After using the gag, it can be fully taken apart (with four different pieces: two for the back straps, one for the mouth strap, and one ball). This makes it easy to clean either for storage or for sanitation purposes, like when sharing the gag between multiple submissives. And since the gag is made of silicone, it can be sterilized in those three wonderful ways (though you might want to watch what you use since it will be going in a person's mouth). Putting it back together can sometimes be a difficulty, but if you try really hard to wiggle the ball back onto the mouth strap, then it should become much easier.

In use? Well, it's fairly well-known that ball gags do not "mute" sound—they instead muffle it, so most of the words that you or your partner decides to speak or scream will be incomprehensible, and will not be understood. This ball gag in particular also makes it hard to make noise because of how much it spaces out the mouth—the tongue ends up becoming a bit limp and worthless. There is a lot of drool though...a lot of it, so you'll want to keep that in mind before buying this beautiful gag.

As a whole? I really love this piece. It's a favorite of mine now (though not a favorite of my girl's..) and I just think that it's so well made. The attention to detail is so exquisite, and there is no piece left unattended to. Sinvention's company really outdoes themselves, whenever they make any product. Perfection in a BDSM product is always obtained. I am so glad to now own this product—thank you so much, Edenfantasys!

And now here's a few pictures of me playing around with making a Frankenstein gag...

I received this beautiful ball gag from Edenfantasys. You can get your own there too for just $55! I was worried at first to buy a gag at such a high price, but trust me, Sinvention's products are definitely worth it. The leather is so smooth and beautiful, and the stitching is so perfect. There are two other ball colors to choose from (red and black), and whichever you choose, you are sure to be pleased. To get 15% your total order, enter my partner code B5P at your checkout!

Favorite Fridays

Here's the moment you've all been waiting for..my Favorite Fridays! Alright, maybe you haven't been so excited, but I sure as hell have. I had the most wonderful idea to start writing my Wishlist Wednesdays and Favorite Fridays, so I just had to share them with you. I was thinking to myself, "Hey, my blog's looking a little sad lately. Let's liven it up a bit with some weekly posts." I've also had another great idea for my blog, but you'll most likely see that next week (as I've sort of..missed the day for it this week...) And I'm going to go on for a couple more sentences, aren't I? Well, enough of my incessant talking, here is Favorite Fridays!

Firm leather spanking paddle with angel design
The product that I am sharing for this week is the lovely Angelic Dreams Spank-Her Paddle.

I reviewed this product quite a while ago over at Edenfantasys, and I truly just love it. I know, I know, I said that I would make a video for this beauty a while ago, but I just have not been able to. I'm also a little camera-shy (yes, I am! Surprising at all?). But regardless of what I've done, this paddle is just excellent. It's a fully leather paddle, with some sort of interior piece that keeps it firm and steady in an experienced (or new) hand. It's really..."slappy," to put it one way. When it makes contact with the skin, all that you hear is the whistling through the air and the sweet smack sound coming from a fleshy tush. I've not only used this on my girl's tush, but I've smacked her thighs and her arms with it.

It's a wonderful paddle for me. It's not my first leather paddle, but it's certainly not going to be my last. The Angelic Dreams Spank-Her paddle has really gotten me hooked on Ruff Doggie Styles (as stated in my previous Wishlist Wednesdays). To please me so easily is very, very hard. I like my paddles firm. Very firm. Like, wood firm. Which is why most of my paddles, up until purchasing this one, were almost all wood. But after buying this one? Yeah..it's that good, which is surprising to say for a $44 paddle. I really love it, it's now one of my favorites—so what are you waiting for? Get your own!

So there you have it! My first Favorite Fridays. I hope that you've enjoyed, and that you also are someday able to purchase your own beautiful Angelic Dreams Spank-Her paddle. See you next week!
