Congratulations to Jessica (Buttercup Green), she's hit the big 1-0-0 review milestone. Let's all give her big round of applause and find out more about her reviewing habits, likes, and dislikes!
How have your interests changed since you started reviewing?
Ever since I can remember, I was masturbating with my own hands. When I turned 16, I became friends with this amazing 21 year old woman who bought me my first vibrator at Spencers. It was a traditional vibrator, and it wasn't anything luxurious or fancy. Ever since that first vibrator, I have been hooked. I need vibrations in order to get off clitorally, and over the year I have become a fan of power houses. I don't really need a ton of power to get off, but I enjoy the way a wand massager makes my whole vagina vibrate. I also enjoy how fast a wand massager can get me off. Most of the time though, I love to take a whole afternoon and let my sexuality go wild. I love to make my masturbation sessions last as long as possible, and I always push myself to orgasm as many times as possible.
I thought that since I loved vibrators so much that I would never love or even like dildos. Sure I can orgasm via fingering, but I had never experienced a G-spot (squirting) orgasm before. Then I bought my first glass dildo. I believe it was the Rainbow Mega Nubby by Don Wands. I had never used anything with that much texture, but I wasn't scared to try it. The rest is history. I am addicted to dildos, especially glass or wooden or steel ones.
Another thing I never thought I would do was anal play. I was always scared to even attempt it, but watching it in porn always turned me on. After reading tons of reviews and forum discussions on anal play and anal toys, I decided to give it a try. That was when I bought the Love Pacifier Advanced by Cal Ex. I will never forget my first experience. My husband took the time to warm me up with fingers and lube. He made sure my first time was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Anal sex isn't a favorite of mine, but I do enjoy it on occassion. That isn't to say that I don't enjoy anal play. I love wearing anal plugs on a day to day basis, but I enjoy having my husband's penis in my vagina more when compared to him in my butt. This love of butt plugs and anal toys grew into a love of double penetration play. My husband love to see my butt filled up with a butt plug, and he love to see the base peeking out between my cheeks. It is often that my husband will demand I put in a butt plug before we have sex. He really enjoys filling both of my holes up.
Growing up during my teen years, I knew I was different from the other girls in the sense that I was dominant on the outside but I was craving a time when someone would bend be over and take complete control over me. I still hide my submissive side of me sometimes because I don't believe my husband is as open to his kinky side as I am . However, ever since I started reviewing all of these different sex toys his sexual nature and curiosity of the BDSM lifestyle has grown. We are definitely improving slowly as a couple into the BDSM scene. He likes to spank me with his hand, and we are about to buy our first flogger soon. I love to be choked and have my boobs and ass slapped. I used to feel ashamed about these "taboo" sexual feelings, but Eden makes me feel normal and safe. We take baby steps, and we are satisfied with that.
What has been your favorite product so far?
-That is too hard of a question. I can't narrow it down to just one, but I can narrow it down to five. My top 5 at this moment in no particular order are:
-Eroscillator 2 Plus including the Ultra Soft Fingertip Attachment
-NobEssence's Ergonomic Two Finger
-Luxotiq Anal Plug
-NobEssence's Seduction/Smooth S Shape
Has your favorite changed since you started reviewing?
-Oh definitely. My favorites were limited because my stash was limited and so was my experience with toys in general. My favorite used to be an old porous traditional vibrator. Now I have learned about materials and their safety, what I like and dislike, and most importantly I have learned what works for me and my body. Even though I have a large mountain of sex toys, it takes a lot to become a favorite of mine. My plan? To continue that list and make it grow.
Is there any specific kind of product your looking forward to seeing more of/reviewing more of?
-I know a lot of people are requesting more hardcore BDSM stuff, and because I am easing into that I would love to see more BDSM stuff period. I notice a lot of beginner type stuff, but I would like to see more intermediate/advanced things. If anything, I would like to see more floggers/canes/whips/p addles. Anything for spanking I am all up for.
I always love high end vibrators, but I don't think that Eden is lacking a lot in that department. I would absolutely adore it if Eden started carrying more Istim or toys like the NeonWand. I have to say this because everyone knows how much I love them, but I am craving more high end glass toys. Anything artistic and cute.
As for reviewing, I am super excited to order our first flogger. I talked my husband into giving it a try. I think he is only hesitant because it is new, and he doesn't want to badly hurt me. For my next 100, I hope to venture out into uncharted areas and review more kinkier things.
I just want to say that I wouldn't be able to achieve this monumental milestone if it weren't for Eden, and for that I want to thank EF for giving not only me but everyone a chance to be free in their sexuality. I also want to say thanks to EF for giving everyone a voice. This is a very special community and family, and not everyone or every website can say that. I want to give thanks to all of my students (both past and present). You guys and gals have been such a blessing. Not only do you listen to advice, but you give advice as well. I have learned to not only teach but to listen. You are my friend. To all of my friends on EF, thanks for listening when I had to rant or for listening to my horrid past and giving wonderful, thoughtful advice. Because of everyone listed here, I am more of a woman today than I ever was.
