Hey everyone!

Many people have ask me for suggestions for great ideas/suggestions for sexy gifts to friends, family and loved ones this holiday season. Here are some of my favorites that I recommend to you.

I’ve really gotten into sensual massage with soy wax massage candles. I particularly LOVE the Jimmy Jane Afterglow massage candles or Afterglow Sampler Set. Babeland also offer the candle together with the stone massager as a perfect massage kit:

Then of course, there is my all time favorite bedroom accessory, the Fascinator Throe by Liberator. This is a beautiful blanket (lots of color and pattern option) that is soft on one side, smooth on the other…and has a waterproof layer in the middle. What does this mean? Ejaculation, lube, food, sweat, wax, etc doesn’t make it through to your sheets/carpet/couch/wherever you have sex. And then it’s washable and tumble try. FREAKING BRILLIANT! I also love my Liberator Scoop as far as sex furniture goes.

Let’s talk vibrators. I love the Hitachi Magic Wand for people who like power, the Fun Factory Layaspot for first time vibrator users and/or people who want to share, the Lelo Gigi and the JeJoue G-Ki for perfect G-spot stimulation, the Lelo Ina for a rabbit style toy, and the Lelo Siri for a rechargeable clitoral vibe.

For dildos, I think the Tantus Vamp is still pretty popular, what with Twilight coming out. Anything by Vixen Creations is great, but I know that the HUGE Outlaw will be respected by some while other prefer the pretty sparkles of the Woody. I know that the Njoy Eleven is sure on my holiday wish list! Anyone want to get it for me? And don’t forget to add in a super comfy harness like the Spareparts Joque to help your gift-ee strap it on!

Looking for someone who is in to anal? A Crystal Delights Plug to help them bling their bottom will be appreciated, as would any of the very many Njoy line of butt toys (Fun wand is great for anal AND g-spot). Just starting out? Try the Fun Factory Flexi Felix beads or the Ryder butt plug by Tantus.

For the penis possesser on your list, the Fleshlight is a must have for every penis. Does your lover/friend like prostate stimulation? Aneros prostate stimulator is a GREAT toy for the backdoor.. Don’t forget fabulous cock rings like Lelo Tor and the those that are nitriles!

aneos

Don’t forget to add lube to all toy gifts! Water based lube is compatible with everything; I recommend Sliquid Organics or Pink Water for everything, but Maximus is PERFECT for anal, fisting, jacking off and more. If you’re not playing with toys, get your lover/friend/family member some silicone lube; Pjur Bodyglide and Gun Oil are the best! As far as stimulation gels, Sliquid’s Stimulation O Gel is my favorite!

sliquid organixs

Gifting to someone on the kinkier side? Try a nice set of restraints, a flogger color coordinated to their other toys, or maybe a sassy paddle to get them going. Stockroom is the place to go for all your kinky gift needs!

heart paddle

Want to help someone help themselves? I’d suggest a book or DVD.

Opening Up is wonderful for people looking at consensual non-monogamy.

The Guide to Getting It On is the end all, be all, general overview of all types of sexuality book.

I <3 Female Orgasm is a great gift for college age women looking to explore a bit of female orgasm.

Rope books like Midori’s Guide to Japanese Rope Bondage or Two Knotty Boys Show You The Ropes are fabulous as well.

Looking for porn? Try anything from Reel Queer Productions, or Heartcore Productions. Want something for someone who spends lots of time online? How about a membership to the Crash Pad Series or Good Dyke Porn? As far as educational stuff goes, Tristan Taormino makes a bunch of awesome sex ed guides that have info AND hot sex scenes!

Hope this has helped! Sexy and sensual gifts are almost always welcome, so it’s hard to go wrong, especially when you shop the retailers I’ve linked to. I’m also happy to recommend based on individual circumstances. Just email me at ShannaKatz at gmail dot com!

I wanted to embed this on here for all of you to read. Although being hosted by HotMoviesForHer.com, it is a video with no nudity, so safe for most works (although we do discuss sexual freedom, the Sex Bloggers Calendar, porn and more). Thanks so much to J.D. Bauchery for doing this rocking interview…on the streets of NY. Our apologies for the sound!

This week brings me back to my homeland; Colorado!

The title is a bit deciving — while I will be spending a good deal of my time in Denver, I’ll also be heading down to Colorado Springs tonight to do a Sex Toy 101 event at Colorado College, and check out our new Fascinations store that just opened in Colorado Springs.

Thursday the 14th is a busy day, starting with a 7am interview/talk show with Lewis and Floorwax on the Fox. Please tune in! Then, Thursday night at 7pm is a 100% FREE sex ed workshop at the Aurora Fascinations. It’s call What’s Up with the Butt? Anal 101 and is great for everyone who is interested in anal sex, whether they’ve tried it or not, regardless of gender, orientation, etc. It’s going to be super fun! Plus, the first 20 people to show up get $10 gift cards for Fascinations, and everyone gets refreshments and the chance to enter a raffle for toys, gift cards and more! It’ll be at 2680 S. Havana Ave in Aurora, 7pm.

Friday, I’m doing a private all staff training for the Colorado Fascinations employees, checking out a venue for my wedding next fall, attending a friend’s wedding, and then rocking out at the Skull FUK (Fetish und Kink) party at the RACK Room.

Saturday, I’m planning to hang out with my best friend, and hopefully do a shoot for GoodDykePorn.

If you’re in Colorado, I’d love to see you while I’m out there. And if you’re interested in having me come speak at a campus/store/center/dungeon near you, please contact me!

Here is a video review (thanks, as usual, to Fascinations, and especially to Matt) of the Je Joue G-Ki.

It’s a review of the G-Ki, which is this cool new G-spot vibrator from Je Joue that actually has two spiffy joints that bend, making it much easier to make this toy fit YOUR body and YOUR g-spot. Also, it’s a reachargeable toy, which gets a huge thumbs up from me, not only because I am eco-friendly, but also I hate having to deal with batteries, etc.

Check out the video review to see the toy and watch its awesome bendability, as well as hear my thoughts on this toy, and other G-spot superheros, like the Lelo Gigi.

Thanks again Fascinations! Enjoy the review/video (and all the fun and awkward noises I make to describe the vibrations)… Click here to get your very own G-Ki!

So here we have a vibrator that is a little different than your average vibe. Why? Because it’s coooooold. It’s a vibrator that uses/is made of ice. Not even kidding — this is the Ice Vibe by Touche. It’s a silicone toy with a little traditional bullet vibrator, but the actual part that winds up vibrating against your clit, or nipples, or testicles, or penis, or wherever you decide to put it, is made of ice. Perfect toy to cool down on a hot summer day. Want to see it and hear my thoughts about it? Check out my video review.

Thanks to Fascinations for the toy, as well as our Rockstar of Awesome Matt Helm who made the video. It’s actually quite an old review, but it got lost and we just found it, and figured that since it’s summer, what better time to share the Ice Vibe with you, right?

At Fascinations, we’ve created a line of underwear/panties that I find hilarious to no end. I decided that I’d share them with y’all, and if you understand them, then you’re probably at least a little nerdy (or have spent WAY too much time online).  The one sad part is that there aren’t too many XLs left, and the company that makes the panties didn’t have larger sizes. I’m working on that for the next run. But for now, enjoy the amusing-ness of these:

Shanna Katz Full Spectrum Sexuality

July 15th Workshop

To all of you who are in the Denver Metro area; I invite you to my FREE workshop this Thursday at the  Fascinations in Arvada, CO, at 7pm. Again, it’s free to all who come, and every one who attends this workshop will get a $10 gift card (good in any of the stores, or online at Funlove.com , as well as food and drink, and an entry in a raffle to win gift cards and more.

We often talk about sex acts, but it’s rare that we sit down and talk about sexuality as a whole. Is it ok to masturbate in a relationship? Why exactly do we talk about “lube is love?” How do I introduce sex toys into my relationship? What if I’m not horny. All these are topics for discussion, as well as sex toy 101, info about materials, lubes and more.

Hope to see you there!
