Our latest winner is Sapiosexual, who submitted a great review offering superb advice to first time corset shoppers. We loved how she compared the affordable Classic Satin Underbust Steel Boned Corset with custom made corsetry.
"It's one of the cheapest corsets you can get, so I made sure I read all the reviews before buying it. It's the fourth corset I've owned, so I knew what had and hadn't worked with my previous ones. I must say, for such a cheap corset, it seems pretty good. The satin feels lovely and the build appears to be pretty sturdy."

Our Erotic Book of the Month is back!
October's sultry story book is Dangerously Bound by bestselling author Eden Bradley. Enjoy your copy even more when you take advantage of our October Book of the Month Deal. Each copy comes with a free gift BlueBella OM..G! G-Spot Vibrator to really spice things up.
We spoke with Eden Bradley about what makes this book special and she filled us in with the uncensored back story: "Dangerously Bound combines several of my favorite things: a hot tattooed bad boy and the city of New Orleans."
"If you've read any of my books then you probably already know that kink is often a main ingredient, and a part of my own life, so it's a favorite theme to write about. In this case there's a lot of rope play, which was something I didn't have much experience with myself, so of course I had to do research - that's what I'm calling it, anyway."
Read on for more from Eden and enjoy a sneak preview of Dangerously Bound...
Tie me up or tape me down! So what is bondage tape?
Bondage tape is a fun and versatile material that you can use almost anytime and just about anywhere to restrain your play partner with a shiny fetish look and feel. Many couples find it a fun alternative to bondage rope.
You can wrap yourself or your gifts with bondage tape too. Restrictive bondage can be a lot of fun and bondage tape will literally add new layers to your fetish play.
Reusable PVC bondage tape conveniently sticks to itself, but not skin or anything else, including hair or furniture. Yet it still binds tightly to itself and must be unrolled or cut to remove once it is in place. You can even use bondage tape to fashion playful and provocative fetish wear with a twist.
To get started, it's a great idea to pick up Tracey Cox Supersex Beginner's Bondage Tape Double Pack. You'll get pink and black tape at a great price. With both colors on hand you're ready to try out some of our top uses for this very useful bondage accessory...
We would like to invite you along on a journey down the rabbit-hole to find out the ins and out of who's really buying sex toys, plus the averages and stats of what (and how much) they're buying!

Two years ago, after ending a long term relationship I finally decided to lose my online dating virginity. Within 24 hours of creating a profile, I was chest deep in creepy messages from potential suitors, nonsensical profiles, and terrible smartphone meets mirror photography. I felt a bit like an anthropologist thrown into a brand-new world that I had only heard about in stories from friends.
With that said, online dating can be a great way to connect with other singles that you might not have normally met through your usual social circle. However, I’ve learned that there’s definitely a “good” and a “bad” way to do online dating. Although the internet is rife with online dating horror stories, your online dating experience doesn’t have to end in disaster. Here’s a few online dating DOs and DON’Ts that will help you get the most out of your online dating experience.
