Statement on Paid-For-Positive-Reviews

I have been made aware that a company that I have reviewed for in the past is now under suspicion for, among other things, paying reviewers for positive reviews. I want to make it 100% clear. If you have read a review with my name associated with it, either on one of my web sites or on a 3rd party’s website, this review was conducted as a product-for-review transaction. I have never received compensation for any review I have ever written outside of the product itself. This includes money, additional products, perks or other incentives to give any review, let alone one that does not reflect my true feelings about a product.

While my own product reviews have slowed down in the last 18 months or so, I wanted to be very clear that I do not condone this type of pay-for-review transaction and do not engage in it myself.


I’ve been sitting on something big for a while, but I wanted to be sure all the T’s were crossed and the I’s were dotted before I made the announcement. Usually, when I take on new clients for work, I don’t tend to share. But – this is a new role I’m quite proud of.

You are looking at the North American Distributions and Marketing Director for Doxy Massager. Yes – US-mains Doxy has got their greencard and is making their vibrating way over to the USA!

The folks at Doxy approached me a few weeks ago, as they’re looking to break into the US sex toy market. Right now the Doxy is only available here in the UK (a couple of US sites have it, as well as few other EU ones). My move back to America and their need for ‘knowledgeable feet on the ground’ came at the perfect time. I’m excited about using my connections in the adult retail world to get their products out there!

But – I can’t write this post without a huge thank you to Ruby Kiddel and Eroticon. I’ve always said that Eroticon is not just a conference for writers. It’s also a quickly growing business-to-business opportunity that’s not to be missed. Every single Eroticon I have attended has resulted in thousands of dollars of income just from connections I made at the event. I first met the Doxy crew at Eroticon 2014 and the connection was built from there. If you’re a business looking to find the right person – or the right person looking for a business – I strongly suggest you get ready for the next Eroticon. (Eroticon USA is tentatively scheduled for mid-August 2015 in Atlanta, GA and the next Eroticon UK will be in 2016.)

So what does this mean for me and Ruby Goodnight Media? Well, if you’re in the USA, you’ll probably see me at a few more trade shows than I originally intended on going to this year – but that’s certainly not a bad thing! I’m still continuing with my content writing work, and still have the plans for a small company of content writers, helping them get their own gigs. This just dovetails into that. You’ll also see Mrs Goodnight become a more active part of Ruby Goodnight Media – not just the support behind the scenes.

If you’re a North American based sex toy retailer and want to get the Doxy stocked in your shop, please feel free to get in touch with me. You can reach me at ruby (at) doxymassager (dot) com, via twitter at @RubyGoodnight, or on Skype at RubyGoodnight. The first American units will start shipping mid-August, and we anticipate on that first run going very quickly – so I strongly suggest getting on the list as soon as you can!

Dear Sir, I Lost The Game.

This piece was created for Exhibit Unadorned’s Sinful Stories competition. The goal was to take one of several images from Molly’s Daily Kiss’s Sinful Sunday from April 27th and create an erotic story around that image. Thank you to happycomelucky and Eva St James for use of your images in this piece. 

Dear Sir,

As per number six of the list of instructions You left for me this week, I’m detailing you the success (or lack thereof) at winning The Game over a twenty-four hour period.

For those who are reading along with this on my blog, The Game is a mental game where the objective is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes a loss, which, according to the rules of The Game, must be announced each time it occurs. (Source)

But of course You couldn’t leave The Game as just a simple win or lose scenario. Rather than just losing, You upped the stakes. When I lost, I had to masturbate with whatever I had in my hand at the time. If I had nothing in my hand, or what was in my hand was inappropriate for fucking, it had to be the most immediate object to my hand that was indeed fuckable.

7:35am – I had only been awake for about half an hour, getting myself ready to go to work. I had managed to last all the way until I was putting on my makeup before I had thought about The Game. I was holding my blush brush at the time, with its long, tapered, skinny handle. I could have fucked myself in the pussy with it, but I remembered number three on that list – continue my anal training – and decided it was slim enough to fit inside my untrained ass. Two birds, one stone, one orgasm brought on by my fingertips as I was slowly pressing that brush handle into my back side.

9:45am – I was stood in the stationery closet at work, waiting for my photocopies to get done. I looked out the window and saw some of the guys at the office next door kicking around a soda can on their break. That’s what triggered the losing thought – a silly game of Pepsi-kick-about. While I was proud to see I lasted more than two hours, I was slightly freaked out when I realized my hand was on the copy machine. It was one of those old kinds that does a lot of wiggling around when it’s turned on (kinda like me). So, I closed the blind, locked the door, and set it to 100 blank copies before I lifted up my skirt and pressed myself into one corner. (Of course no panties, as per number two’s rule of ‘no underwear all week’.) The plastic corner of the machine felt a bit odd, but it did the trick. I think my fear of getting caught make me cum faster, if not harder than the first loss. Keep going…I want more…

Last week I had the fortune to ‘sit down’ with two great ladies and talk about life, love and work! Molly Moore and Harper Eliot are the delicious duo who run the (It Girl. Rag Doll) Podcast. These vixens cover a number of adult topics in their sessions, including adult censorship, polyamory, sex toys, porn and so much more.

During my sit down with the pair, started off talking about the weather, then moving onto a brief history of how I got into the adult business. We chatted about topics such as my love for the Fifty Shades of Grey novels, porn nicknames, my upcoming immigration back to the United States, how beginners can get into the commercial writing world, and what I think people do wrong on Twitter accounts.

If you’ve ever been curious to hear my Boston-come-Derbyshire accent, this is your chance as I rarely do anything audio! Big thanks to Molly and Harper for inviting me onto their show – and I am looking forward to getting version 2.0 done at the 2015 Feminist Porn Conference!
