Fact is… I have one giant box filled with various dildos, vibrators and other sex toys of all shape, sizes and material types, in my storage space. I’ve used them on webcam shows, videos for my official website and I sometimes wonder, how many of these are toxic for me, if any?
Turns out, adult product companies are free to choose of labeling their products under one of the two following categories: novelties & medicinal purpose items, which is where it gets a little tricky for us consumers.
This Vice article dated from 2013 is stating that there is an estimate of 2,100 sex toy-related emergency room visits a year, based on the data collected by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). Injuries goes from “there’s something stuck in my bum“, “bruised inside” to “it’s itching, burning or just plain irritated down there“.
I can clearly recall personal experiences of “it’s itchy and irritated down there” even after washing and caring for my precious fake cocks properly. Never did I asked myself… maybe something is wrong?
It’s been about a week now, since I started bombarding the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & Tumblr platforms of all things RebelMayhem that the requests for prints started coming in. Let me start by saying that your comments have been heard and taken in to consideration. With a little invested time and organization, we should be able to offer you guys posters and other promotional goodies shortly.
Today is special.
Because I’m “celebrating” …or agonizing over (not sure yet) about living my last few hours as a 20 something year old. Soon, it wont be ok for me to sleep with my makeup on or get sick in the bushes, at a party. I’ll become that “cool” older gal that still party like in her 20′s and hang out with a few, very mature for their age, 20 something year olds. As frightening as it might sound, getting one year older isn’t so much of a freak out in my mind as I might portrait on twitter.
Am I nervous? Maybe a little but mixed in an excitement to see what this new chapter of my life will be like. As I’m about to make the jump to the age where it’s acceptable to hang out in 35-40 (that’s the age range if you’re wondering) nightclubs, I’m looking back on what I learned in the last 10 years and here’s what I got up to date…
This year, I celebrated my 11th years as a proud member of this untamed and misunderstood industry…
Since my debuts in 2004, the adult industry grew in such way that we now consider it to be more “mainstream” and part of our pop culture. It is absolutely amazing how performers can now jump from one porn project to one mainstream project without the old shaming that was one inflicted on our past peers.
You can hear a lot of different stories about the adult industry, everybody took a different path, had their own little adventure and I’m sure all these stories would be incredible, compiled all together in to one book. Personally, I’m always sad when I read some of the negative press our industry gets from time to time because I consider my story to be a positive one!
The other day, I was sitting in a little cafe, chatting with this girl who’s trying to make her place in the BDSM community….
She was telling me about her fun life as a Mistress & Fin Dom and asked how come, after all those years being a good little filthy slut online, how come I didn’t already have a list of money pigs who sends me tributes from time to time in order for me to feel like the good little spoiled brat that I am and deserve to be. Ok, she didn’t say that way but that’s how my brain understood it *^_^* …you know, there’s some wisdom in there. *^_^*
I laughed, then started wondering….
