Problems With The Everything To Do With Sex Show 2016 (And How To Fix Them!)

my tickle trunk everything to do with sex show

Dear ETDWSS,
I write this with love – truly – because what I saw this year was a show in trouble, and as one of Canada’s few sex shows, this concerns me. Fewer exhibitors, fewer relevant features, and worst of all, fewer people. All hope is not lost, but I’m sure your accountants agree – something needs to change. In fact, looking at photos from past years, it looks like you already know what I’m talking about, simply with the downgrade of leaving Metro Toronto Convention Centre. I’m presumptively taking it upon myself to draw attention to the bad omens, the aspects of the show that need changing, and what can be done to make it better.

Highlights Of The Everything To Do With Sex Show 2016

Highlights Of The Everything To Do With Sex Show 2016 my tickle trunk review

For the first time in a year, I’m publishing two blogs on the same day. Why? Because I don’t want to come off as negative, but I also don’t want the Everything To Do With Sex Show to read this and think that everything’s hunky dory. Because it’s not, as you can read in my other post: Problems With The Everything To Do With Sex Show 2016 (And How To Fix Them!)

But that’s not what I’m here to discuss, because while it may not have lived up to my expectations, there were some bright spots and good companies that I really want to shine a light on.

Pleasure Panel: Role Play Scripts For The Modern Woman

Role Play Scripts for the Modern Woman by Erica Hart Review my tickle trunk

My newest review for Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel is not a toy, but a book! Role play is a fascinating but completely unknown territory for me, but fantasy-fulfilling newbies may be able to find solace in Erica Hart’s Role Play Scripts for the Modern Woman! With detailed scripts ranging from the shy to the shocking, check out my review of this guide to making your sexual dreams come true. (click here to read the full review!)

Like most things, (especially sex “guides”) there’s good and bad. The good is that the Role Play Scripts for the Modern Woman book can provide an anxious first-timer with the inspiration and confidence to move forward with guidance. Someone like me – who, when my partner requested that I dom him, literally Googled “how to dom my partner” – might feel completely ill-prepared in new sexual territory. I’m a researcher, and if I’m going blind into something as delicate as sex, I’ll read every word you give me (a practice that I’m sure got me into some awkward moments in my early years of Cosmo).

Good Whore: That Time I Put On A Show

good whore erotic story exhibitonist

We’d been only once before, to the local sex club down the road. A typical Thursday night had turned into a steamy adventure and before we knew it, we had arrived at a place with enough sexual energy to be palpable, with enough sex toys to turn any man in that place a vermillion shade of red.

Checking into a locker room, I got undressed into my red bra and panties as Patrick stripped down to his boxer briefs, already tight as we listened to moans and the sexual energy building from the next room. We grabbed a drink and took a lap; men walked around in towels, while women were either topless or adorned in skimpy lingerie. Off of a hallway there were individual rooms, each with a rope across for observers, and a door to decide when viewing time was over. Over in the corner, several men stood around an ottoman in the dungeon, taking turns with a single woman as she moaned under the cock of another man. We sat watching for a few minutes, wishing we were the ones being gangbanged, but moved along to figure out our next adventure.

Is Virtual Reality The Next Step In Sex Toys?

my tickle trunk VR porn vitafun sex toys

Porn as a concept is meant to tap into your deepest fantasies – threesomes, gangbangs, POV blowjobs – they’re all a part of fulfilling those deepest, darkest desires. The last few years have seen incredible growth in the world of virtual reality, with over 43 million VR users worldwide, so with this revolution well underway, of course porn-makers are taking advantage.

The first adult virtual realities began showing up in late 2014 and haven’t slowed down; with the limited technology at the time, videos were short and low-quality, but now…

G.I. Josephine my tickle trunk story

When I was younger, I loved Barbies. Hated dolls, loved Barbies. I think as long as they were smaller than me and had implied daddy issues, it was much less intimidating. Much like writing (or The Sims), they provided a fun way to act out a personal fantasy (at this age, having friends), and I think the non-threatening demeanor of Barbie was also helped when I discovered that I could pop her head off with little to no effort. It turned into a standard reaction while acting them out. “Skipper, you stole my shoes!” *head pops off*

I’m Kinkly’s Sex Blogger Of The Month!

my tickle trunk kinkly sex blogger of the month july 2016

I so tickled to find out that Kinkly has chosen me and My Tickle Trunk as July’s Blogger Of The Month! You can read my full interview here, but this is a quick snippet of one of my favourite questions.

Kinkly: Who’s your target reader?

My Tickle Trunk: Well, me. I’m always writing with the intent to educate myself through a time vortex. Every new experience I’ve documented is an attempt to answer the questions that I asked before I had that experience. I basically want to educate someone like myself from a couple years ago, when I was moderately sexual, but felt kind of ashamed for being so interested in the industry and the lifestyle. My blog is for the woman who really likes sex & toys, and is moderately experienced, but might have fantasies and questions about pursuing them.

I’m Moderating #SexTalkTuesday! June 21st – Group Sex

sex talk tuesday #sextalktuesday my tickle trunk moderator

Update: Check out the full Twitter chat on this topic here!

Let’s talk about group sex!

Group sex has always been something that fuels my sexual curiosity. Whenever I would watch porn, I found myself drawn to threesomes, gangbangs and double penetration – anything that brings an overwhelming sexual element. I felt shame about this for a long time; while in a relationship, I would watch these videos and feel disappointment about how that would never be me. About how I could never truly live out my fantasy because I truly am monogamous.

Sexy Favourites for Masturbation May

Photo 2016-06-01, 1 39 34 AM

I’ve never done a favourites post before, and I doubt it’ll become a regular thing because ew, commitment, but May was such an exciting whirlwind of a month for my blog and my sexual adventures that I feel the need to do a roundup. And what an appropriate month to start!

Smut In The 6ix
In case you weren’t around for when I flooded Twitter with #Smut6 news, Spit Magazine and Playground Events hosted Smut In The 6ix; a celebration of smut with a conference and gala all devoted to what we love most: PORN. The panels and their lovely panelists were all so fantastic and passionate about the industry. I’m not someone who’s looking to get into porn (to be honest I wish I had that interest to complete my collection of kinks), but hearing about the ethics, the techniques, and the overall reflection of the feminist porn industry was a huge news flash for me that I very much welcomed.

My First Time: Anal Sex

my tickle trunk first time anal sex buzzfeed chart

This is not the tale of how someone fucked my ass. It’s the long story of how I got there, because for some of us, it is a long journey. But spoiler alert: I get my butt fucked.

I sometimes forget that in the sexual scope of things, I’m relatively new to anal play. With the exception of an experiment using the tip of a broomstick once as a teenager, my first real encounter with assplay came from my current relationship, less than 2 years ago, on a night when we went and bought His & Her’s butt plugs. Seriously. His was purple, mine was black (this was so long ago that I still thought black was a “cool & unique” sex toy colour)
