PERVERTIBLE 3: Electric Toothbrush

Bzzzzzzzzzz.

Oh yeah, baby. We all know you’ve thought about getting off with an electric toothbrush. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Pros
Cheap ($5-15)
Easily accessible
Inconspicuous (that is, nobody will know you’re getting off with it)
Easy to clean
Waterproof
Multi-purpose…..ha!

Cons
Not very powerful, only provides a mild sensation
Loud!

Tips for Usage
-Use the back (or front, if you’re into it!) of the brush and hold gently over your clit. Trying moving it around and alternating pressure patterns.

-If the base shape is right, you could alternate clitoral with vaginal stimulation by enveloping it 2-3 inches. Don’t expect vibration at the base — it’s more like a dildo than a vibrator. I would also advise not to insert the base if there are any seams. See how mine is smooth and round for 3 inches on the bottom before the seam?

This is perfect if you wanna test the waters. Don’t get crazy though, because seams harbor bacteria.

-Do not insert the brush head into the vagina. Not only will it likely be painful, those bristles are a breeding ground for bacteria.

-Yes, you *can* use the brush for both teeth and clit. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re going to, I would advise using only the BACK of the brush head. Because it’s plastic, it’s easier to clean and easier to stay sanitary. The back of the brush head is what will most likely feel the best any way.

-Clean well with hot water and soap (use a soap that won’t leave residue) when you’re done!



Finding the Right Brush

When you’re buying your multi-use brush (if you don’t already have one) pay attention to the brush head and the battery compartment at the bottom. Look for a wider brush head for more surface area. If you want to use the base at all for insertion–and you definitely don’t have to–find one with a seam that’s high up on the toothbrush and a rounded bottom. In my experience, electric toothbrushes are all loud, even the very expensive ones, so there’s not much of a way around that.

Here’s the one shown in the picture: Oral B CrossAction
Here’s another I’ve owned. The base isn’t ideal, but the vibrations from the brush head are more intense: Crest SpinBrush

Been there, done that? Share your tips or experiences below. Happy exploring ;D

Great tip below from Jeremy: “The best way is to remove the bristles and put a dab of silicone sealant where they were. Interchangeable heads. One your teeth, one for fun.”

The Rapey Right, Sex Illiteracy, Trans H8

Recent sex health news in the United States

House Republicans to Redefine Rape
Lately, a large body of powerful people–most of which are men–have been trying to narrow down of the definition of “rape” (and you thought the guy next door with the crazy hair was creepy). From Mother Jones:

Rape is only really rape if it involves force. So says the new House Republican majority as it now moves to change abortion law.

For years, federal laws restricting the use of government funds to pay for abortions have included exemptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. (Another exemption covers pregnancies that could endanger the life of the woman.) But the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” a bill with 173 mostly Republican co-sponsors that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has dubbed a top priority in the new Congress, contains a provision that would rewrite the rules to limit drastically the definition of rape and incest in these cases.

With this legislation, which was introduced last week by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), Republicans propose that the rape exemption be limited to “forcible rape.” This would rule out federal assistance for abortions in many rape cases, including instances of statutory rape, many of which are non-forcible.

Let’s look beyond the “political party” shit. I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Communist, or IDontGiveAFuckist–does this not seem primitive and barbaric? Have we moved forward at all since the early 1900s? Why must our social and human needs always come second to politics, money, and corporate interests? The good news is, in response to pressures from political activist groups (ye-ah!!), Republicans have initiated corrective measures. Thanks for doing the right thing.



Sex Educators Notice That Adults Are Clueless About Sex Too
It’s like a virus that is passed socially, generation by generation, from parents to their children. Perpetuated by a nation in which 2/3 of the states reject comprehensive sex health education, the trend of being completely clueless about sex is not only worrisome, it’s sad. With the same belief, some badass sex toy reps have taken it upon themselves to use sex toys as an aid to exchange information about sexuality and healthy reproduction. This movement of researchers and educators to bring sex health education to light in new ways is a gentle reminder of how fearful we have become with our bodies, our sexuality, and feeling pleasure.


NoShitNews: Study finds transgender people are discriminated against

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) made history with the 1st nationwide study about the experiences of people who do not conform to our gender boxes. They found that profound forces of discrimination exist in nearly every dimension of life for transfolk. In their intersectional approach, the research also indicates that: “No dumbasses, racism isn’t dead either”.

Here are some examples of the findings:
♦Respondents were nearly four times more likely to live in extreme poverty, with household income of less than $10,000.
♦Respondents were twice as likely to be unemployed compared to the population as a whole. Half of those surveyed reported experiencing harassment or other mistreatment in the workplace, and one in four were fired because of their gender identity or expression.
♦While discrimination was pervasive for the entire sample, it was particularly pronounced for people of color.
♦Housing discrimination was also common. 19% reported being refused a home or apartment and 11% reported being evicted because of their gender identity or expression.
♦An astonishing 41% of respondents reported attempting suicide, compared to only 1.6% of the general population.
♦19% reported being refused health care due to bias against transgender or gender-nonconforming people, with this figure even higher for respondents of color.
♦Harassment by law enforcement was reported by 22% of respondents and nearly half were uncomfortable seeking police assistance.
♦Over 78% reported feeling more comfortable at work and their performance improving after transitioning, despite the same levels of harassment in the workplace.



Sex Toy Myths: BUSTED!

In this exclusive video, I respond to the following myths:

- “If we use sex toys, my girlfriend won’t want me anymore!”
- “Sex toys mean you are desperate or abnormal.”
- “Using sex toys will result in a loss of sensation or the inability to orgasm.”
- “Sex toys are only for women.”

PERVERTIBLES: Ice, Ice Baby

Pervertible (n.) : An everyday object which can be used for sexual pleasure.

Ice
Accessibility: All, free(ish)
Body served: Male and female bodied
Main function: Sensation play, especially during warm weather

Usages

1. Use ice to make chilly trails along your partner’s skin. Follow up with warmth from your skin or tongue.
2. Trace her breasts with ice cubes, making circular motions as your move inward toward her nipples.
3. Put an ice cube in your mouth while giving your partner oral sex. The alternating sensations will make them feel amazing.
4. Exchange an ice cube while kissing to add a new sensation to a familiar routine. If you’re the silly type, you could make a game out of it.
5. Use ice on typically ignored parts of the body. Body parts with thin skin will bring goosebumps of pleasure! (i.e. back of the knees, crease of elbows, behind ears)

Pro-Tips
For most people, it helps to avoid holding ice directly on sensitive body parts (penis, clitoris, nipples, etc) for too long. Ice causes the blood vessels to constrict, and too much constriction will result in a temporary numbing sensation. However, for individuals that are hypersensitive, exposure to ice may help dull the intensity to make sensations more pleasurable. Note that extreme exposure, which generally requires more than just an ice cube, could result in frost bite.

have fun… :)

PERVERTIBLES: Make-Up Brushes

Pervertible (n.) : An everyday object which can be used for sexual pleasure.

So, why is a make up brush a pervertible? Well….. :)

Accessibility: All, under $10
Body served: Male and female bodied
Main function: Penetration & sensation play

The Handle
Make-up brushes can be found for cheap, or you may already have them lying around the house. Make-up brushes with the fluffy tips usually have thicker handles which can be used for vaginal or anal penetration. The handle is a great for intro & beginners because they are thinner than most dildos, span only 4-5 inches long, *and* they usually get thicker toward the tip. Nice! However, to make your experience more enjoyable:
-Make sure that if you’re using a wooden handle, that it is sealed off like mine is (splinters in vaj=OMGWTF OUCH).
-If it is plastic, make sure it does not have any plastic cracking off.
-Make sure the brush is new or thoroughly washed.
-If you’re buying a brush, make sure the handle doesn’t have any unpleasant bumps when you rub it.

Otherwise, pleasure is yours!*

The brush-y part
Erm…okay so I’m kind of a n00b when it comes to terminology, but the part of the brush where the hair is can be used for all kinds of sensation play. Nips and clits come to mind especially ;). For an extra twist, use a blindfold–it will heighten the sensation!

*As always, you alone are responsible for how you use your body and what you put in it. Always make sure that the materials composing your toys are safe for your body and that you are using them in a safe manner. :)
