My thoughts and musings about life as a sex toy reviewer

I hope that you enjoy this insight into my life and what I do. I love reviewing adult products and I will use this blog to keep everyone aware of what is coming up for review soon and also to pass on any thoughts or issues that I have. I love feedback so please use the comments sections of these posts to get in touch with me.

It's update time on my overly ambitious 3D printer enclosure

Well, I thought it was high time to give an update on my 3D printer enclosure at my office. Having just spent a week in hospital (long story) I am well behind where I would like to be in the build, but basically, it is all operational.

If you missed the first post in this series you can read it here - 3D Printer Enclosure.

I am waiting on the doors coming from a supplier that is cutting them to size for me (I pray that I measured them correctly).

I have magnetic reed switched to use on the doors so that if you open the main enclosure doors (either side), it will switch the LED lighting on to 100% white light so I can see what I am doing. Closing the doors resets the lights back to what they were doing before the door was opened.

Lighting

The LED lighting is fitted, with a 72 RGB LED strip in the top shelf area and also one in the main enclosure, and they look incredible when the printer enclosure is powered up.

I can select different lighting colours or have it slowly cycling through the entire colour spectrum. It even has some cool modes called breath and heartbeat. I will post a video of those when the doors arrive.

I want to make some things out of ABS and so I need to up my game a bit

I am a sucker for a project (or two). I love tweaking my 3D printers to get the best possible quality I can out of them, and I have learned so much through doing so.

My next printer project is going to be constructing an enclosure for two of them. This will tidy my office up somewhat, but also it will allow me to experiment with printing with some other materials.

I am going to be printing in PETG first, and then I will be experimenting with ABS as a material for my products. Both of these are more difficult to print than my usual PLA with ABS having the most challenges to overcome.

So read on to find out why and how I am going to tackle this project.

If estim cock play is your thing then I have designed something you may enjoy

Well, I have done it again. After a rather erotic dream about using e-stim on a bound and gagged submissive, where I was using a bipolar cock loop on it, I decided to sketch what I was using in the dream.

Now obviously this isn't a groundbreaking new design and other similar designs are available on the market. None of them can be printed and made yourself if you have access to a 3D printer.

Of course, I can step in and make one for you if you don't have access to a decent 3D printer.

I am working on some pretty neat designs and products

I have been designing and making 3D printable electrodes and more importantly, electrode insulators for over a year now.

Over that time, my skills and knowledge about not only designing these items but enabling the designs to be easily printed on hobby-level 3D printers have improved considerably.

I still release my designs to the community for free personal use as I am a big believer of giving back to the community.

I also sell ready-made insulators and the funds from these products helps me run my site and also upgrade my equipment so that I can create even better and more intricate kink and e-stim products.

I have upgraded my Ender 3 printer to a direct drive system, it is now controlled by a 32-bit processor making it better in almost every way.

One of my reasons for upgrading from the standard bowden drive system for the filament to a direct drive system is so I can use some really nice materials.

Now that title may have you a little confused but bear with me on this one as this is a serious subject.

I am talking about STI's (Sexually Transmitted Infections) here, and this lockdown may be a blessing in disguise for the swinging community and just everyone who is sexually active.

All STI's have a gestation period before symptoms arise, and often the infection can be spread between partners before symptoms occur. The lockdown, we are in as a nation, has pretty much stopped people having sex with new partners. That is a good thing regarding STI spread.

Think about it for a minute, with people not freely engaging sexually with new partners we are not only stopping the spread of Coronavirus, but we are also not spreading HIV and all of the other STI's that plague humanity.

I am upping my game so I can make some even kinkier things

I have so many projects and ideas rushing around in my head at the moment. Anyone who follows my site and the kinky things I get up to will be well aware of my love of designing electrodes and kinky things. I am a total geek at heart LOL.

I have no formal education in anything like this. While the designs I come up with look polished, it takes me days to perfect something I have decided to model in 3D. I use Fusion360 to design my bits and bobs and the learning curve on that was like the North Face of the Eiger. Here is a link to the first thing I ever designed and it took forever - Bumble Bee Pussy Clamp Electrode.

I am self-taught, which is nothing new there. When I was introduced to the beautiful world of e-stim play, I pretty much fumbled my way around. I taught myself how to give myself hands-free orgasms reliably. That is one of the reasons why I write so many e-stim articles and advice guides. They hopefully help others coming into the scene to find it easier to reach their first HFO.

The Sex Blogging Community Can Be So Much More

It's time for me to sit here and place my thoughts in front of the whole world as to what is currently happening in the sex blogging community.

The sex blogging community should be a beacon of mutual acceptance and understanding. But it is a beacon with a weak flickering flame, one that will not go out but still a beacon that falls short of its true potential.

As an open community, we had the opportunity to accept and welcome all genders, colours, sizes and shapes, but recent events have highlighted how this is not truly the case.

Stereostim is a great way to enjoy stimming some fun

Recently Electrastim, a UK manufacturer of some brilliant E-Stim Control boxes such as their AXIS (read my review of it here) and the FLUX started to produce some excellent estim videos.

On social media, they asked if there was anything in particular people would like to see explained in these videos. Well being a gobby cow (in the most delightful way), I had to ask about a quick primer on stereo-stim or using audio files when stimming. It's often a subject that causes lots of confusion to people new to stimming.

Imagine my delight when they did produce an excellent video on this subject. They even gave me a shout out in it too, thank you Electrastim.

I am doing my own little bit to help keep NHS staff safe by making PPE for them

With the pandemic running its cause all over the globe, healthcare professionals are at the front lines of the battle against this virulent foe. Here in the UK, we are incredibly proud of all the NHS staff and critical workers doing their bit to keep everyone safe and sound.

The NHS staff, in particular, are in harm's way, caring for patients with Covid-19, and they rely on personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep them safe.

This vital equipment is becoming in short supply, and small businesses and individuals who can help are rallying to the cause.

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness.

Ok, so the first thing I need to say is that most people with Fibromyalgia may have different symptoms. This post details my struggle with it and how I cope. There is no cure or easy solution to the constant pain, stiffness and other symptoms, and it's undoubtedly not something that I would wish on anyone.

In some respects, I am quite lucky though, while I'm on a lot of pain meds and do walk with crutches, or need to use a wheelchair over longer distances. I can still walk with crutches, and the pain meds do help slightly, and I also only suffer from mild fibro-fog (yes, that is a real term).

Luckily the fibro-fog is something that is not a constant for me, so I can just stop writing, and come back later to finish and edit what I am working on as needed.
