I love interesting toy materials – glass, ceramic, wood, marble, steel, aluminum. You name it, and I probably own a toy made out of it. I did this awesome video review for a cool line of glass toys called Simply Blown, but unfortunately, Fascinations is no longer carrying it online. However, I am not one to let a rocking review video go to waste, so I’m post it here, with links to Simply Blown glass dildos on other sites. They come in all sorts of interesting shapes, sizes, colors, plugs and designs, so check them out. Contrary to how they look, they are in fact solid, making them safe for play…as well as can be sterilized by boiling 3-5 minutes, being run through the dishwasher on the top shelf, or wiped down with a bleach solution. I think these are some pretty awesome glass toys, and give them my thumbs up. Just remember – never freeze, microwave or boil  your glass toys prior to use. Ice water or warm water will change temperature just fine!

Hey folks!

This coming Thursday is special. Not only is it my half birthday (hurray to me!), but I’m also putting on a FREE Strap On 101 workshop at the Aurora, CO Fascinations store. It’s at 7pm at Fascinations 2680 S. Havana St, Aurora, CO, and is open to EVERYONE 18+. Strap On Sex can be enjoyed by people of all genders, orientations, sexes, ability levels, etc. Plus, free snacks, and a raffle for gift cards and toys at the end. The first 10 people to attend each get a $10 gift card.

Come learn all about the joys and pleasures of strapping it on. Discuss the pros and cons of different kinds of harnesses (ever wonder what the difference is between a g-string and a dual strap?), learn how to properly inset cocks and dildos into the rings, and contemplate a plethora of positions. This class is open to singles, couples and more-somes of all sexes and genders (we’ll cover pegging too, as well as using harnesses for cuckolding). Never used a harness before? That’s fine – we’ll start with the basics. Plus, everyone will get to try on harnesses with toys to get a feel for the different styles, as well as figure out what works best for them if they so choose. Come ready to play!

See you there!

It’s a mouse, it’s a com device….no no, it’s the Better Than Chocolate vibrator! In my latest video review, I take on Nomi Tang’s clitoral stimulator/external vibrator, the Better Than Chocolate. It’s a cute toy, made to hug the curves of a variety of parts of the body (the vulva, around the penis shaft, etc), and comes in two colors; plum and navy, which is awesome for those who aren’t the biggest fan of pink (like me!). While I wish that it was made of silicone (which is a sterilizable material), at least is is made of elastomer, which happens to be a phthalate free and body-friendly material. This makes it safe and hypo-allergenic for bodies, and is also compatible with a variety of water-based lubricants. It can be used solo for masturbatory fun, or with a partner for some vibe-tastic interactions.

All in all, it isn’t better than chocolate. However, it’s a fun toy, with pretty light up action. If you’re looking for something similar but made of silicone and rechargable, I’d suggest the Lelo Siri.

Check out the video below to hear more of what I think, and then head over to Babeland to get your own Better Than Chocolate Nomi Tang Vibrator.

For those of you living in Arizona, I’ll be back in town this weekend to be in the Phoenix Pride Parade, and of course, person the Fascinations booth both days of Pride. If you’re around, make sure you stop by and say hi — I have free stickers, dams, condoms and lube for everyone! Plus, lots of rainbow glitter and more!

See you there,

For those of you who didn’t read through this month’s Katz Meow (my monthly sex education newsletter), I have an announcement to make…

In the beginning of March, my partner and I, as well as our three kitties, will be making the trek back to Denver, Colorado, this time for good. I will continue to work for Fascinations as their resident sexuality educator and online media specialist, returning to Arizona on a monthly basis to host free sex education workshops for the community as I do now. I’ll also be hosting at least one free sex ed class in the Denver area each month, as well as continuing on with my other duties, and my partner will be starting a wonderful job with a fabulous non-profit organization in the Denver area.

What does this mean for you? If you’re just an avid reader of the blog, or like checking out my videos, pretty much nothing will change. If you’re in Arizona, you can still see me once a month at my classes, as well as plan sex coaching/relationship counseling appointments during my visits, or via the phone or Skype. If you’re in Colorado, that means lots more awesome, accessible sex education coming to you, as well as having a Denver area sex coach and relationship counselor, and the opportunity to book private parties (think sex toy parties, bachelorette parties, stag nights, girls nights, guys nights, you name it!). If you’re looking to book me for travel, I’ll now be flying in and out of the Denver airport, which often has cheaper fares and a wider flight selection, making it even more affordable to bring me to your store/campus/conference/dungeon/home/etc.

I’ll still be in Providence March 9th-15th, and Portland March 18th-21st, other wise I’m not booking any additional March travel in order to be able to unpack, etc. However, April and beyond are open for bookings still, so feel free to contact me to set something up for your organization.

And the best part of it all, aside from being near friends, family and the Rocky Mountains? Why, the vegan buffalo seitan wings at Watercourse Foods and City o City!

Colorado, here I come,

Since it IS “Hump Day,” I thought I’d post another video of my anal sex 101 workshop, called What’s Up with the Butt. I have a video of one of my classes already up (click here to view the anal sex class video), but I did this class after I got my two butt puppets; Andi the Anus and Riley the Rectum. Ergo, I thought I’d give it another taping, so you can enjoy more intro to anal fun, and of course, check out my anal puppets. This is a great video (as is the other) to watch if you’re scared of anal sex, wanting to try anal sex, or have tried it and found that it hurt, as well as if you are a lover of butt sex, and just looking for some more fun ideas to try. Class was taught in January 2011 at Fascinations in Arizona.

Enjoy!

Below is my video review of the Njoy Pure Wand, which I personally feel is the best non-vibrating g-spot toys (and a great anal toy) on the market…and now that I own the Njoy Eleven, I love this company even more.

The toys is made of stainless steel, so it is 100% body friendly (and easy to sterilize by boiling it, dish-washing it, or wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution), it’s great for temperature play (put it in a bowl of warm water or a bowl of ice water), and has helped more women to discover their G-spots than any other sex toy I know. It is amazing…plus it comes with an adorable box for storage.

Thanks to my former employers and crew for filming, editing, etc…and thanks to my breasts for looking amazing throughout this (I mean, seriously!).

Hey folks!

Today I’m lucky enough to Heidi Lee from the cooking show Into the Soup AND Martha Hopkins, author of my favorite erotic cookbook “Intercourses” on my show today! We’re going to talk about sex (of course…this IS Let’s Talk Sex with Shanna), as well as sexy and erotic cooking, aphrodisiacs, the correlation between food and sex, and of course, we’ll have some great giveaways as always. Don’t forget, you can call in toll free from anywhere in the US!

The show is at 4pm MST, and you can either listen live in the Phoenix valley to 1100 AM KNFX, or stream us live online at www.1100KFNX.com through the radio’s site. I’m super psyched about these guests and this show, and I sure hope you tune in!
