#Roundup - January 29th edition

Gary Gary
Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the Weekly Review Roundup #29!

January’s all but gone now, just like Tuesday in that Lynard Skynard song… Damn! I guess that means that 2010 is now officially 8.33% over with already. Oh well.

My first order of business this week is letting all of you know that Laurel (aka Licentiously Yours), has come aboard full time. She will continue working with the review program, but now she will also be working with Sexis, and helping with a number of projects that are in the works.

The interview with Em & Lo is still on, but today is the last day. So you better go over there right now and ask some questions before it’s too late!

Did you hear? There’s another contest going on over at Eden Café right now. That’s right, the Glassvibrations contest is happening now. You had better go find out how to enter and win. This week they are giving away the Soother or the Purple Mystery if you win... the prize is your choice.

The printed version of Sexis went on sale this past Tuesday, packaged with Bust magazine, but you can get it free from us. Interested? All the details are right here. Speaking of Sexis, did you know that there is a new column called Pornacracy? No? Then you should definitely go take a look at Pornocracy: From Indie to Next-Gen Porn by Minivan Libertine right now. Join her as she explores this brave new world of indie porn, and find the realest of the real, the queerest of the queer, and ultimately, the hottest of the hot.

It looks like we had 207 reviews submitted this week. This is our 5th week in a row at 200 plus reviews. I am glad to see that you have all been keeping so busy. This is a great time to own stock in lubrication Keep up the good work everyone!

Ok… and now on to the sex toys. Here are this week’s 5…

Wolf Boi - “Little Hottie, Not so Hot” - a review of the Little Hottie didlo by Happy Valley. Welcome to the community Wolf Boi!!! Wolf Boi is the newest review contributing member of our community! Here we have a review of a dildo that did not provide a great experience for her and her wife. If you like to find out why, got take a look at the review. And while you are there be sure to say hello!

Kynky Kytty - “A Delightful Derriere-Diving Dolphin Dildo” - a review of the Whirly Strap-on dildo by Fun Factory. This little dolphin shaped strap-on dildo is just too cute. It is definitely an interesting looking toy, but is this a case of form over function? You are gonna have to read the review to find out.

Oggins - “I gave it a standing O!” - a review of the Sinfonia g-spot vibrator by Close2You. Here Oggins tells us about how this toy manages to combine her two favorite things, firm flexibility and vibration. She then goes on to give a 5 star rating, so maybe you ought to go read the review and see what all the fuss is about.

Bobatron - And God said, “let there be Fleshlights!" - a review of the Fleshlight Lady Original by Fleshlight. Here we have another rave review of the almighty Fleshlight (I did one too this week – insert smiley face here). In his review Bobatron says that he now looks forward to masturbation way more than before he owned a Fleshlight. Go check out his review!

Mr. I– “Meet your second bride!" - a review of the Mail Order Bride female love doll by California Exotics. Ah, it’s about time we had another inflatable doll review. It’s been quite a long while since the last one. What a better way to close out January. Now check out the review, and then buy an inflatable doll.

That’s it for this week folks. Have a great weekend!

Nice mathiness, commentary, news and Top 5, Gary! Your roundups rule!

And this is a little tidbit for our peeps that read the Roundup: Wanna know a funny story behind Laurel going fulltime?

Ok, well I'll dish. So we all talk on Skype due to working in many states etc, right? And about 2 weeks ago, Carrie Ann and I were discussing the idea of asking Laurel to come on fulltime, so she would have time to take over Sexis outreach and social media. Laurel was sitting at her day job, and thus not on Skype. We needed to know if she'd do it. Laurel hated that day job. Carrie Ann and I started text messaging Laurel messages that were motivating, enticing and laden with expletives. Also, we told her to log onto Skype. She did - in like 2 minutes flat. She was made the offer and decided to quit her job while at her job...which I thought was really funny. Fast forward through some details being figured out, and the next day Laurel was writing her 'Take this job and shove it' resignation for said former crappy day job...and joining the ranks of pajama'd coffee drankin EF fulltime staffers. And there ya have it. Laurel burned all her suits on Monday, while laughing maniacally and skyping me and Carrie Ann the whole time.

Anyway - yeah, ya never know what you're gonna miss if you skip reading the Roundup. That's the moral of the story, folks.

HahahahahahaHA! My text to Laurel read pretty close to "Want to quit your soul sucking day job and come work for EF? SKYPE, woman!"

And history was made.

Welcome aboard, Laurel! My day is so much less stressful with you taking over the SexIs outreach. I owe you many coffees!

Congrats on the round up reviews and,like Gary says, get on over to Eden Cafe to enter the glass contest and then over to the Em and Lo interview. They are giving the BEST answers!

My texts were way more curse-y / graphic. But the sentiments are the same

Oh my god... I'm laughing so hard. And I wish I could deny it, but it's true.. I hated my old job, it was soul sucking and unchallenging and NOT ONE person there has pink hair! I absolutely love working for Eden, so it wasn't a hard decision at all!

No pink hair?! Where the fuck were you working? In a cave?!

And no worries... I am going to challenge you so hard, baby!

We may, you know, force you to put a pink streak in your hair to fit in, Blondie.

I'm gonna add back some red again...underneath in the back.

So, in the pink family, but still me.

Congratulations on your 'promotion', Laurel! Better to do something you love than allow your soul to wither away.

Go with an ombre pink - look like the old Jem dolls!

Yeah. Congrats on the promotion! I hate soul-sucking jobs. EF is definitely not one of them.

Congrats Laurel, I'm pretty sure part of the EF uniform is brightly dyed hair and tattoos, you should look into a tax break regarding them.

I'd love to work at EF full time and make money all the while. I'm so excited just to get free toys. I know there's a way to make comission on here, but I don't think its for me. I'm a computer nerd. Sigh...economy sucks.
