2016 Blog Wrap-Up

2016 Blog Wrap-Up

Wow did 2016 just fly by! This was my second year running Princess Previews and it feels like I have achieved so much in such a small time. I would say that this year was basically separated into two sections, pre 1st Blogiversary in May and post. Before May this year I ran the blog the same way I did in 2015, as more of an occasional hobby to run alongside my porn work. My aim was to complete only one review a month (sometimes not even that) and while I had worked with a few companies I had never personally pursued or asked for toys to review before. While organising my Blogiversary however, I realised how much I deeply loved running the blog, and that a few things needed to change. I quit my adult work to give myself more time to work on the blog, as well as to free up my social media for blogging related news and info only. I decided I wanted to put more focus on my Australian readers and switched to using AUD and the metric system. I also redesigned the blog’s theme, which I’m still very happy with. Lastly I very nervously started approaching companies for review items and made a new goal of two reviews per month.

Review: O-WAND

O-WAND

Wand massagers are kinda my thing, and nothing makes me happier than getting more. I have a bunch on my wishlist from reading reviews by my fellow bloggers, but nothing gets me more excited in the sex toy world then when a new massager comes out. Every new toy has the opportunity for it to be the next big thing, for it to beat out my current favourites and take a prized spot in my bedside table drawer. So when the O-WAND was announced and I was contacted about reviewing it I was over-the-moon excited to see if it would be able to live up to the high expectations the creators have set.

Review: Njoy Pure Wand

Njoy Pure Wand

When I started reviewing I made a list of all the toys I believed were Sex Toy Reviewer Must-Haves. I’m proud to say I now own all of them, but for awhile there has been one exception to this and that was the Njoy Pure Wand. Renowned for its heavenly G-spotting and squirting abilities in the sex toy world, the Njoy Pure Wand has been a toy I have probably mentioned in my reviews over a hundred times. One of the main reasons I haven’t gotten it till now (other than the price) is that I have a difficult G-spot that loves to hide and I was starting to think it just wasn’t for me. This was until in July when I got the Jopen Comet Wand as a cheaper way for me to explore the world of G-spotting before committing to one of Njoy’s pieces. If you’ve read that review, which I’d recommend if you’re interested in G-spotting and the Pure Wand, you’ll know that I absolutely adored it and instantly made the decision to get a Njoy Pure Wand as soon as humanly possible. So, of course, as soon as I heard one of my favourite stores to work with, JOUJOU, had started stocking Njoy recently, you can bet exactly what I requested!

Sales: Best Holiday Deals for Sex Toys 2016

Happy Holidays to all my readers! I know how difficult it can be this time of year. Amongst all the Christmas parties, family get-togethers, and hours in the kitchen and shopping malls, it is important to take breaks to properly self-care, relax and look after yourself. In my opinion sex toys are the perfect assistants for this, after all orgasms are meant to be one of the best ways to release stress. So if you can find it, put a little money aside this year for a present just for you. After all, you deserve it. Plus, don’t even get me started on all the wonderful gifts for friends and lovers that sex toys can provide.

To help you out in tracking down the best deals for sex toys this holidays I’ve put together this guide to highlight some of my favourites, along with notes on which countries I’d most recommend certain stores to.

I’ll be updating this throughout the month, so check back to see even more deals as they are announced. Happy shopping!

Review: Sex Wooden Toys Afrodite

Sex Wooden Toys Afrodite

Over the last few months I’ve had the pleasure to review such a diverse range of toys from both large-scale and independent manufacturers. I’ve sought out new materials to try, recently reviewing a stone dildo and with a stainless steel toy review also currently in the works, as well as receiving toys from a range of different locations such as Spain, England, Germany and Norway. So when independent company Sex Wooden Toys from Italy contacted me about reviewing one of their handmade wooden sex toys I jumped on the chance and requested their beautiful Afrodite dildo.

Event: Sexpo Melbourne 2016

Sexpo Melbourne 2016

This weekend I attended Melbourne’s Sexpo 2016. It was my third time going to the event that has taken a special place in my heart. Sexpo was where my interest in the world of sex took flight and changed me from a girl who had never even been to a sex store before to one that walked out with 10 new toys. Of course none of these toys ended up being body-safe and they got me sick, but in a weird way I’m thankful for that because it lead me to research safe materials which lead to my blog. So in a way Sexpo helped create me, and I’ve been looking forward all year for the 20th year anniversary edition of the event.

Review: IMTOY Zoo Gazelle

IMTOY Zoo Gazelle Review

I’m a self-proclaimed Wand Girl. If I was told I could only use one type of sex toy I would instantly tell you I want to be able to use wand massagers without any hesitation. Recently I’ve fulfilled my initial wand-owning goals, by now having both a Doxy Die Cast and a Magic Wand Rechargeable. These beauties are the core two wands of the sex blogging world, as well as my own. Now that I have them though I’m left wanting to experience what else the massager market has to offer and see if I can find anything that lives up to my clitoris’s spoiled standards. So I was really delighted to be contacted by IMTOY who have recently launched their new range of sex toys, the Zoo collection, which included a wand massager. I instantly fell in love with their design for it and they were kind enough to send me one to play around with.

Review: Laid D.1 Stone Dildo

Laid D.1 Stone

I’ve always been very interested in the healing and enhancement properties that come with different types of stones or crystals. I have very fond memories as a kid of picking out stones that were supposed to help me in certain areas, such as ‘improves your art’ or ‘helps you make friends’, and I still have a rather large collection. As such, I have lusted after the stone collection of toys from Laid ever since I first saw them. Unfortunately Laid products are both expensive and not very common to see in Australia, so they quickly fell to the bottom of my wishlist. Last month however I announced my partnership and affiliation with Australian retailer JOUJOU. As part of this I was able to choose a product from their range to review, and you can imagine my excitement when I saw they stocked Laid. I was most interested in their original dildo design, the Laid D.1 Stone, and set about eagerly waiting for it to arrive.

Mini Review: JO Toy Cleaner

JO Toy Cleaner

It has recently come to my attention that anti-bacterial soaps of any kind can be harmful. Because of this I can no longer recommend this toy cleaner, instead I recommend Pjur Med Clean Spray which is not anti-bacterial, or just some mild soap.

 

In 2015 I wrote a mini review about my toy cleaner at the time, the Pjur Med Clean Spray. I loved that little spray, enough to write a review on it, but its 100ml didn’t last me long and so in November last year at Sexpo I planned to buy another. Sadly after a lot of searching I found that no-one at Sexpo stocked my beloved spray, and so, annoyed, I sulked over to the JO stand and picked up one of their toy cleaners, sure that it wouldn’t compare to my Pjur and deciding I would need to order some online when I had the money. Now flash forward to just-about-November 2016 with this years Sexpo coming up and I can’t wait to buy more of JO’s cleaner! I still prefer the ease of Pjur’s spray-on type cleaner, it was quick and convenient, but JO’s foam style has lasted me so much longer and is so much better for your money that I wouldn’t want anything else.
