If you’re considering ANY type of open relationship, or are already knee deep in one, Opening Up – A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships by Tristan Taormino is a must read. The book gives clarity on the different styles of open relationships from partnered non-monogamy to swinging to polyamourous to mono/poly combinations and everything in between.
You’ll learn how to design your open relationship, strategies for survival, how to overcome common challenges, tips for coping with jealousy and and other itense feelings, and you’ll read about the experiences of other couples along the way.
Although this book is not a step by step how to guide, it will give you great insight into the bigger picture complete with lots of “aha” moments and “ohhh…that makes sense” realizations. By the time you’re done this book, you’ll be armed with all the terminology and insight you need to map out your journey. You’ll have a better understanding of what makes an open relationship work, what doesn’t and potential pitfalls to avoid. But of course, given the nature of the content, this book is best read together.
Whoopie…I’ve finally found it! A WIRELESS vibrating egg that’s worth writing home about. I know…ewww…but trust me, “The Boss” is da’ bomb. If I was equipped with boy naughty bits, I would say “The Boss” is like the Lamborghini of wireless vibrating eggs. It’s smooth, sleek the engine purrrrs under the hood…and so will yours when you take it for a test drive.
So let’s get right to the point. Compared to other vibrating eggs, The Boss is a bit of a fat head at a comfortable 4 ¼” around by 3 ¼” long. It’s made of hypoallergenic ABS plastic that is velvety to the touch making it less invasive on first impact. It is also
non-porous and phthalate-free, lubricant friendly, and easy to clean with anti-bacterial soap.
The WIRELESS remote is one of the best I’ve seen with TEN sweet settings that will keep you “guessing and waiting for your next ‘command’”. Your partner on the other hand, will know exactly what speed it’s at with one quick check of the easy to read LED digital display.
But best of all, our own ‘bedroom’ tests prove that you can fire up the engine and switch gears from over 30 feet away! Plus, it’s quiet and discrete making it the perfect toy for a naughty night on the town or my “good vibrations” fantasy.
I’m not usually into ‘fruity flavoured’ lube so this was something relatively new for us.
The fruity smell is quite nice; not overpowering or fake smelling. It reminds me of suntan oil – very tropical. Because of the smell it’s perfect for the planned romantic evening, but not so much for the discreet encounter. The scent is a dead giveaway for the activity it is designed for.
I would say its middle of the road in terms of runniness…it’s not too much, and it’s not thick and gooey, which surprised me as many of the scented lubes I have used in the past were very sticky mainly due to the sugar used. This uses stevia for sweetness. Safe to safe it tastes nice as well.
Near the end of our session, we could’ve used a dab more, but overall it has good staying power. It didn’t leave me, or my partner feeling icky, sticky, and running for the shower.
One final note, I do like the ingredients – natural. I can read them, and pronounce them, and I know, more or less what they are. Horray for natural.
Overall, a nice lube that I would use again – for a special romantic evening.
