Sex Toy Blog Posts

In the last few years, the sex toy adult market has grown substantially on the internet. Separating yourself from the crowd with bespoke web content related to your products is a non-spammy way to drive traffic to your website. This unique content will not only appease the ‘SEO’ gods, it’ll also help get eyeballs on your products without seeming spammy. This piece on the basic differences between strap on harness styles was made for the website Vibedream.com.

Diving into the world of strapon harnesses for the first time? The sheer number of varieties available for those who are looking into this style of play can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Between figuring out which kind of harness works best for you, picking out the right dildo, and sorting out any lubrication, it can be a bit tricky! Getting the basics down is key – so here is a brief overview of various styles of strapon harnesses for your next experience.

One-Piece Strapon Harnesses – These are where most beginners turn to, as they tend to be the least expensive and least complicated. A single dildo is permanently attached to a harness that can be either slipped on and off like underwear, or strapped onto your body like a belt. While the cost is low and they are easy to use, you’re sacrificing any options for variety as you’d find with more complex systems that have interchanging dildos. You want to be very certain that both the style of dildo and the harness type fits your needs.

O-ring Based Sets – The most popular style of strapon harness are those that have an o-ring attached to the front of the harness where you can slip in your favorite dildo. This style opens you up to many more options as far as dildos go, as long as the dildo itself can fit into your o-ring and has a flared bottom. Less expensive o-ring based harnesses have singular fixed rings, while others allow you to take out the ring and replace it with others of varying size. Look for o-ring harnesses that have snaps on the side of the ring, rather than sewn-in rings as they are the most simple to change out.

Modular Strap On Harness Sets – There are an increasing number of sex toy manufacturers making their own ‘system’s that can have interchangeable harnesses, dildos, and other toys for penetration pleasure. The most popular of these is the Vac-U-Lock system by Doc Johnson. In these mini “strapon worlds”, you are limited to whatever items are in that particular collection, so you want to be sure that they cover the styles and variety that you are looking for. They also tend to be higher in price, as the manufacturers know you will need to return to their brand for any new toys.

Strapless Strapons – Breaking away from the typical harness and dildo setup, strapless strapon are named that because rather than an external setup, the female who is donning the dildo actually holds it inside her body. Strapless strapons have a penetrating dildo at one end, and a bulb or hook like appendage the other that the woman inserts into her vagina and holds in place with her PC muscles. Many ladies like this style of strapon as it also delivers pleasurable sensations to them, as well as the lover. Using them does take some getting used it, and can sometimes be a bit awkward for ladies who don’t have particularly strong pelvic floor muscles.

Dating Site Web Content

Dating sites are one of the hardest to rank due to so much duplicate content all over the internet – especially if you are using out of the box whitelabels. Luckily, some dating site sponsors allow you to add written content to the site itself. Others may be better off creating blogs that help drive traffic to their specific site. This is a post I created for the lesbian dating site Sapphic Dating as part of their overall promotional program.

Your profile on your favorite lesbian dating website is your first impression. It’s what makes ladies decide if you’re the type of person they want to get in touch with. That’s why it’s so important to get it right the first time around. Make mistakes, and you could be wasting valuable time wading through contact requests from women you’d rather not meet. So how do you make sure that your online dating profile is the best it can be? What can you do to attract the ‘right kind’ of lesbians online? Here are five tips to getting that lesbian dating profile right!

Find A Lesbian Wife OnlinePick a unique screenname that gives a glimpse into who you are. While names like “JuicyGrrl69” or “HornyBoiAries” may look unique – you’d be surprised at how many ladies pick rather sexualized names when all they are looking for is someone to talk to. Be sure that your dating site screenname not only reflect someone about you, but doesn’t give the wrong impression. “DildoSlut” would be a great name for a bottom looking for a no strings attached relationship. “GardeningMom12” shows that sex isn’t the most important factor in picking a potential partner. It’s not that one is ‘bad’ and the other ‘good’ – they just need to reflect what you’re searching for. Also resist putting any part of your real name as your dating screen name, as this can be used to locate you when you’d rather not be.

Post a flattering photo. Your profile picture doesn’t necessarily need to be one of your face, but at the very least be sure it’s a recent image of yourself. While we all know that there are more things to a great partner than looks, seeing an image of your potential lover on a lesbian dating site then meeting someone who looks quite different can be a bit nerve wracking! But, if it is, be sure that you only use that image on that site. Using Google Images, you can backwards-search an image. This means that if you are using the same picture on your Facebook profile, with your real name, someone can search for your dating site image and come up with your Facebook page. Just be careful!

Find Lesbian Love OnlineKnow what you are looking for. Why have you joined a lesbian dating site? Are you searching for a new long term partner? Other lesbians just to hang out with? A no-strings-attached lesbian relationship? Also keep in mind the type of woman you’re looking for. Use basic terms to describe yourself that would be searchable for others looking for your type.

Lay out your “must have”s, your “it would be nice if”s and your “should not” list right from the start. Start as you mean to go. In the case of dating sites for lesbians, this means lay it all out with what type of person you’re looking for. If your possible lesbian love must be a butch, like reading, and is a vegetarian non-smoker, be sure to put this in your profile. While the amount of people contacting you overall may be reduced, you’ll have more of the type of person you DO want contacting you.

Be positive, but honest. Flatter yourself in an honest but meaningful way. If you are on the older site, use term like “mature” and “experienced”. “Curvy” and “BBW” are often terms searched out by those looking for plus sized ladies. Avoid the put downs – even if meant in a joking manner. We don’t mean just when it comes to describing yourself, either. Keep away from the sarcastic style remarks like “Losers need not apply” in your lesbian dating site profile.

We also suggest that once you’ve written your lesbian dating site profile, you hold off a day before posting it. Let it sit in your word document overnight, then come back to it the next morning for a few tweaks. This will help you pick up spelling and grammar errors more easily, as you won’t be reading what you “think” you wrote, but what you actually did right. Once you’re happy with that profile, get it uploaded and get ready for your first contacts to come through. Good luck!

My Fifty Shades of Grey Confession

50 Shades of Grey eCard

Fifty Shades of Grey – not a single book has divided the erotica and BDSM community more in the last fifty years as this one. Yes, I have read it – more than once. Do I think it’s ‘bad’ for the erotica and bondage lifestyle? In a way, yes. Did I enjoy reading it? Kind of. Am I riding out the insane popularity of this set of novels like the cash cow rodeo that it is? OF COURSE I AM!

I’m not joking in the slightest when I say that every single employer I have worked with in the last three months wants pieces relating to the 50 Shades novels. People who I have contracted with in the past who have NO connection to BDSM are trying to find ways to get the traffic from the Fifty Shades phenomenon. I’ve even bought into the hype and dabbled with my own possible way to cash in (outside of my writing, of course).

Fifty Shades Sucks

In the last 90 days, I have:

  • Rewritten Fifty Shades of Grey scenes in order to make them more ‘hardcore’ and ‘lifestyle friendly’ for BDSM porn sites, as a guide for their movies
  • Added Fifty Shades themed keywords to existing sex toy descriptions to hook into the Google traffic
  • Created shopping lists and how-to guides for sex toy web sites trying to get the attention of new shoppers
  • Designed and ghostblogged an entire new website from the point of view of a ‘first time reader’ for another sex toy shop (with posts pointing them in the direction of their store)
  • Ghostwritten two fan-fic style erotica novels using the 50 Shades characters to be sold on Amazon
  • Started my own affiliate web site for a major bondage furniture web site using a Fifty Shades theme

I kinda feel like a bit of a whore about this whole thing. Fifty Shades is this awfully written book that is spreading misconceptions about the bondage and dominance community, yet I’m playing it out for every single penny it can give me.

Writing Porn Versus Writing Erotica

Fan Fic Porn Writer

When I started off as a freelance writer, my bread and butter was writing for porn sites. After I had started writing longer form erotica, especially for those looking to resell my work on Kindle, my writing needed to change.

Porn gallery descriptions and blog posts tend to focus on a set of keywords. Webmasters are looking to get their sites to rank as high as they can, so ensuring that the phrase “Thai creampie” (or whatever else the site is hoping to rank for) occurs a certain number of times in a block of text is rather important. The writing tends to be short and rough, quick and dirty. Let’s be honest, no one – especially guys – go to the majority of porn sites to read. Descriptions for sex toy web sites are quite similar. I walk a fine line between keyword-stuffing and readability, in the hopes that the latest Google update doesn’t penalize the site for over-optimization. I do have to admit, though, I do enjoy the intense rush of being as dirty as possible in as few words as possible (as webmasters are often looking for pieces between 100 and 300 words).

There are a few exceptions to this rule, though. Certain fetishes attract men who want as much detail as possible. They want to read what the slave is thinking when she is getting fucked in the ass with a mechanical dildo. They don’t want to imagine what it’s like when a Dominatrix steps on their naked cock – they want it spelled out for them.

This is where one genre of writing starts to roll into the other. This is where things like character, plot, exposition and conclusion come into the picture. Sometimes it all happens in the context of 250 words, other times a bit more fleshed out.

Erotica writing obviously tells a story. Going out on a limb here, I dare say that the main ‘readers’ of porn are men, and erotica women. Google doesn’t rank book text, so there’s no need to find ways to include a phrase over and over again. My erotica tells a story in “X” number of words. Sometimes I am given a general framework to write it (such as someone wants a vampire story, or a teacher-student piece, or FemDom), or I’m just told to write a 7K word story using my own ideas – as long as it’s formatted for Kindle, includes a title and a blurb, and can be expanded into a series if need be. This is where I write what I like to read, and where my skills as a freelance adult writer grow the most.

I often worry if employers for one side see the other half of my work and get turned off. If a webmaster read Snow White and the Seven Fetishes, would he think I’m too ‘wordy’ or ‘story driven’ for adult gallery descriptions? If someone who wants me to write erotica reads my work on Thai Fuckers and think I can barely string a sentence together that goes above the level of a twelve year old? I suppose its something to battle if that discussion ever arises.
