Editor's Note: A little change in how things are done for this edition - you'll notice there are no "Top 3" picks - due in part to the holiday I ended up being extremely short on judges and I didn't have enough for fair voting. So instead, I expanded my "Featured Post". (If you'd like to volunteer to be an occasional judge for e[lust], just email me, Lilly, at questions.e.lust @ Also, please be sure to check out the new summer schedule in effect until the 20th edition.

Why Pride is Still Important - When someone tells me that they don’t think Pride is necessary, I can’t help but believe that they go through life with tunnel vision. I live in New York where for the most part I can walk around being a big ol’ queen and I’ll make it home alive, but there are people who live in places where they can’t. Even here in New York you’ll get called a faggot from time to time by passing cars or groups of punks, and even here in New York I hear stories of people getting the shit kicked out of them just because they were gay.

Fantasies and Condoms - Our culture has created a narrative in which sex only feels good and looks sexy if no one is protected. We’re all suffering from this narrative, but sex workers are probably suffering the most.

Some days we need a little hope - I encourage you to practice random acts of kindness that could be worthy of inclusion on the site ( Be nice, be caring, let your heart open up just for the sake of bringing someone some happiness or comfort. Do you know how good it feels to just give?

The Lady Vera

The carriage rattled slightly on the broad clay road, his eyes steady on his charge. She appeared perfectly at ease, a sickly bruise marring her otherwise beautiful porcelain face. Black hair, the color of the darkest night, fell in ringlets from her head. Soft sumptuous lips, red as cherry wine. Blue eyes, calm and cool. Her graceful curves were wrapped in silk and adorned by silver and jewels... They looked cheap next to her. She burned with a passion that demanded his attention. She looked perfectly at ease for someone who was waiting to die. They had rode in silence for hours but he could stand it no longer.

"I know of you, Lady Vera, but I cannot make myself believe all the tales about you. Are you not the least bit afraid?"

"Oh? Just which tales do you doubt, ser...?"


"Ser Simon... " She smiled sweetly. "Are they truly so outlandish?" He felt his face heat slightly as his name rolled off her tongue.

"I can't see you beheading the Count of Mandra... or stealing the White Lotus from Queen Iradessa." Her eyes twinkled and the corners of her lips turned up in the slightest of smiles.

"The Count was a great military man, but his weakness has always been women. It was not as difficult as you might think. Sweet 'Dessa was much more of a challenge, but worth the wait. For her and the Lotus both." Her smile blossomed into a lusty grin and I looked away chagrined.

"I wasn't always this... This facade of painted nails and painted face, of silk and lace and pearls. I have been many wonderful and dreadful things in my life... A nervous model, a tavern dancer... a singer, a killer, a whore. I have charmed kings right off their thrones and seduced the very stars themselves. No, I do not fear death. We are old lovers. He's come calling many times and I've proved too hard to get. Like any man, that made him want me all the more."

She eyed me slyly from under her curls. "We have nothing but time. I expect it to take another day at the least to reach the capital. If you would like, I can tell you about the girl called Annabelle Veraline Chambers... before she earned her infamous surname."

I met her eyes, unable to hide my interest. She smiled, for the first time sincere. Her lips moved and time seemed to slip away...

Pleasurists adult product review round-up
Friday, June 25, 2010

You sure got a purdy mouth...

If you've seen my past reviews of the Tenga products, you know how much of a fan I am of their stuff. Not only do they have some premium toys, they also feature some cheaper alternatives for those who want to test the waters. Babeland offered up this awesome masturbation sleeve from Fleshlight and I had to try them out. The Succu Dry is the Sex in a Can model, a smaller version of the bulky fleshlights. It also comes with a smaller price tag. Normal fleshlights run $70-$90 while this amazing piece of work is only $50. Still a bit pricey compared to the sample versions Tenga makes, however, the Tenga Eggs and Onacups are meant to be used once while this blowjob simulator is made of some quality stuff and can be used over and over as long as it's well maintained and cleaned properly.

The Succu Dry is a little over 7 inches tall and for all the world looks like a giant can of beer. The can itself is made of plastic, the sleeve from Fleshlight's patented superskin. The entry point on the sleeve is a pair of succulent looking lips punctuated by pointy vampire teeth. Don't worry, she doesn't bite. On the contrary, she sucks (in a very, very good way). The material is amazing, so soft and smooth. The inside of the sleeve has little nubs (about a quarter of an inch high) throughout the entire length. As wonderful as the superskin feels, it is just one of the great things about this toy.

The name says everything. This toy is all about suction. The cap on the bottom (top when in use) can be unscrewed to adjust the suction of the sleeve. Completely tightened, it is sometimes difficult to enter and I suggest opening it at least halfway to make this a little easier. You'll want to use plenty of lube (water-based only) regardless. After you are firmly inside, tighten the cap all the way and try some slow stroking. I find the most stimulation from completely closed to about a one full turn on the cap. Afterwards, the suction drops significantly. It still feels great, but the way the suction pulls and slides the skin of your penis and slips over the tip is just not the same at that point. Sometimes when you get the suction just right, the way the air slips through the toy causes the material to vibrate slightly and just adds that much more to the experience. Find what works for you and enjoy. The texture is soft and smooth and with the right amount of suction it feels amazing sliding up and down your cock. Like most masturbation sleeves I've used, during my orgasm the textures are just too intense and I can't use the sleeve, basically waiting for the head of my penis to desensitize. That's really the only gripe I have with the toy at all, but it's consistent with any sleeve-type masturbator from my experience.

The material holds up well, I've used my fleshlight about five times now and notice no signs of wear after multiple cleanings. This is one area where the fleshlight can be slightly more demanding. To clean your Sex in a Can, you have to remove the liner and rinse it out by turning it partly inside out. Use warm water and rinse away all the lube and cum (don't use any cleaners or soaps as it may damage your toy!). Afterwards, I normally pat dry with a towel and leave it to finish drying on a towel rack or something similar. Make sure it is COMPLETELY dry before putting it back into it's case. The last thing you want is mildew in your sex toy.

After all is said and done, I'm torn. The fleshlight is not better than my Tenga products, but it is not worse either. I would say they are different sides to a badass coin with two heads. You are bound to win either way.  The material, texture, and most notably, the suction of the Succu Dry make it a great choice for a masturbation sleeve and at half the cost of the Tenga Fliphole... it certainly does have its perks.

~ This Week’s Top Three Posts ~

Sex Pistil’s Guide to Sucking Great Cock - The penis is not something to be feared. It’s not something to hide from, and it’s definitely not something to be put up with the good china and used for special occasions only. The penis is alive and breathing, so to speak, and as such, is not a one-size-fits-all, if-one-guy-likes-it, all-guys-like-it kind of entity.

An Erotic Vignette - “You will come, and when you do, you will yell my name. Because I own you.” “No,” she whispered again, terrified. The last part of herself… total control over her pleasure, the responses of her body… surely he couldn’t… but his eyes said he could.

Dual Erotica: TahoeWe finally reach our floor and excitement wars with nervousness in my head. After all, it’s been a long, long time for me. I don’t have the body I once had; I’m not nearly as experienced as you are. But there is no turning back, not that I want to

Does Size Matter? - I am most definitely a size queen when it comes to my sex toys…but there’s a reason for that. Using a dildo is very VERY different from how I get fucked by a guy.

~ Featured Post (Lilly’s Pick) ~

I Want It AllGender (identity) is different to (biological) sex. Biologically there are males and females, and those who identify as neither (intersex). But it’s sure as hell not that simple, no matter what society says.
