#FunFindFriday – Period Panties


Period Panties by HarebrainedForgive me for being late to the party, but this post just NEEDED to be included in #FunFindFriday before the Kickstarter campaign ends a mere 2 days from now.

Never heard of Period Panties? Not to worry, neither had I. Then I found this twitter thread started by Property Of Potter and I all but lost my shit.


Okay, okay, this isn’t something that’ll interest everyone. A bunch of you might even get a little pissy, what with him using the word “CUNT”, calling a bleeding vadge an “EVIL BEAVER“, poking fun at the menstrual cycle, and talking about periods as if “period sex” isn’t an option when Aunt Flow comes to town…  it’s admittedly a little lowbrow, pandering to an audience that isn’t the most informed or aware when it comes to menstruation.

And yes, it seems part of the apparent marketing was to tap into the “periods are gross” jargon we’ve been fed for decades… but here’s where I think it’s different from all the other bullshit:

Talking to my partner about my period (in explicitly graphic detail) has never made me cringe. I probably share way more than I should, and I have no problem with it. Neither does he, for the most part anyways. He only gets a little wide eyed and white in the face when I use the word “globs”. I’m not a fan of the word either, so I really don’t blame him… however this isn’t the case for everyone.

I know a lot of people with vadges who are totally put off discussing their bits (generally), let alone what time of the month it is. And when they finally open up, some do get grossed out, others feel it’s tmi, some instantly turn red with embarrassment, others think it’s totally inappropriate no matter the time or place.  Looking at all the adverts telling us we’re ‘unsanitary’, ‘not so fresh’, and ‘unhygienic’, it’s clear to see we’ve been brainwashed to believe that periods = bad, and talking about it = worse.

Everything considered, maybe it takes is a middle finger giving kitty or a gun toting unicorn to open the doors of communication. And in the end, isn’t that what we want… people talking about their bodies in a way that makes them feel empowered?

It might just be me, but I think it’s one little step in the right direction.

And let’s be real, the graphics are amazeballs. Blood or no blood.

Though I will admit, I think some of them would be better without the ‘name’ written on the front. There is no time, even when on my period, that I want anyone calling my vadge a “sour puss”. That shit’s just not cool.

As it stands, Anthony Hall (the graphic genius behind the panties) has raised over $350,000 to bring them to market. Pretty impressive considering he was only looking for $10,000.

What does that tell me?


If you want a pair of your own, or simply want to help someone do something they love (even if it is making period underwear), head over to his Period Panties: Kickstarter page.

Review: Exposed – Double Keyhole Dress & G-String

Double Keyhole Vinyl Dress For as much as I love playing dress up there is a reason I don’t do many reviews of lingerie and/or costumes: it’s way too damn hard for me to find stuff that I look great in, let alone fit into comfortably. And while I’m not about to divulge my bra size, I will say that because I’m top heavy it’s especially hard to find lingerie that’s supportive, on top of fitting comfortably and looking great. The evil trifecta that is my lingerie hunt, oh how I dispise you.

Having said that, the Exposed Double Keyhole Dress (sent my way by the amazing folks at SheVibe) is actually pretty decent… it just sadly didn’t offer the support I hoped for. But being that there’s no under wire, just a thin string to hold it up, I don’t know why I hoped for it anyways. My bad.


The wet look dress and g-string are contained in a pink and black box that’s pretty basic. The front features a photo of the dress, while the back shows the back of 5 different outfits, one of them being the current version I’m reviewing.  There’s nothing on the packaging that’s rude or tacky, though it’s lingerie so I wouldn’t expect that anyways (box is pictured left in the bottom right hand corner). Other than that there really isn’t much to say; it’s a box with a sassy lil tart wearing the outfit… who’s boobs I’m very jealous of!

The Good

Regardless of the fact that it didn’t offer the support I wanted (boob wise) there were quite a few redeeming qualities the dress had to offer; the quality was far better than I expected (I’ve worn it and washed it twice, yet none of the stitching has come undone), it felt nice against my skin (rather than being rough or itchy) and looked better than I thought it would. On that note, unlike a PVC wet look material the Polyester/Spandex mix provides a shine that’s free of potential finger marks should anyone touch it. Having said that it’s not a glossy kind of shine, instead offering a silverish sheen that reflects when the light hits it.

As for sizing, the chart is surprisingly reliable – to accommodate for my top heaviness I got the L/XL (sizes 12 – 18) and found that it stretched very well, hugging every other curve perfectly (my tits on the other hand just kind of sat there). Because the only support offered is the string that ties around the neck I found that it pulled and shifted up the back of my neck as I moved (due to the weight of my boobs), leading me to constantly have to adjust it back into place. Although it was slightly annoying it’s something that I’m rather accustomed to so it wasn’t that big of a deal. Fortunately the front pieces stayed put and didn’t shift, something I have often found with other lingerie of the same design – I think it’s due to the fact that the back has a wide clasp closure rather than a drawstring or one that ties up (which tends to loosen the more the wearer moves around).

Unfortunately the g-string was a little too tight for me to comfortably wear and kept digging into my hips, rubbing painfully into them as I moved (I’m phat, what can I say). I also didn’t like having the string up my ass, but that’s just me (I never wear g-strings). Again it’s decent quality and hasn’t fallen apart yet, something I didn’t expect.

The only real difference I noticed regarding the way it fit (when compared to the image on the box) was the middle string like connector: in the picture it looks like it’s somewhat wide but even with the stretch it offered it was nowhere as wide as portrayed, I think it was the only real thing that kept my boobs in check.

As for care and cleaning I’ve hand washed it in cold water and laid it flat to dry, whereas my partner accidentally put it in the washing machine on warm… aside from having the string get tangled in a bunch of socks it held it’s own. The shape hasn’t changed at all and the material still feels like when I got it. Like I said, it’s surprisingly decent quality (especially for the price).

The Bad

The only real complaint I have is regarding the support, but that’s an issue with me, my body, and how I want things to look, rather than being an actual issue with the product.

Final Verdict

If you’re a D or below in the breast department, have perky boobs whether they’re big or small (yes I did just say that), have fake tits that don’t need support, or don’t really give a shit if they hang naturally… you’ll probably really like the dress. Having said that, it’s comfortable, easy to care for, feels nice against the skin and holds all the wobbly bits in like a compact little unit. I just have unrealistic expectations for how I want things to look and felt a little disappointed once it was on (fortunately my partner is great for my ego and loved the way it fit).

Even if the wet look double keyhole dress isn’t your thing, SheVibe has a tonne of affordable lingerie, sexy costumes, flirty wigs and fun shoes to choose from, in my next life I’m coming back as someone that can wear these. Just sayin.

Review: Seven ’til Midnight ~ Miss Diagnosed Costume

Keeping up with my kinky, fun and possibly scary theme for the month of October (check the previous Fleshlight Freaks post) I thought I’d do a review of something I’ve always found scary – finding a costume that fits properly.

I know a lot of you reading this may think I’m talking out of my ass, but truthfully, between the never ending line ups for dressing rooms, hunting through racks and racks of outfits to find the right size, fighting over the last costume in the store (yes, it’s happened) and paying a small fortune for something most would only wear once, it’s the one and only aspect of Halloween I’ve always despised.

So, in an attempt to make this years dreaded Halloween costume shopping a little easier I thought I’d go new route and get one online. Of course this presents a whole other set of problems, mainly getting the size right.

Fortunately  the folks at Shevibe were fantastic when it came to only helping me understand the sizing charts, but also being honest with regard to the level of quality the costumes had to offer.

*here’s a little trick I learned from working in an adult novelty store that also carried costumes – go online and find the costume(s) you’d like to try, then find a store that carries them and try them on there, once you’ve made up your mind go online to a high end and female friendly intimate accessory website that you’d like to support and see if they carry it. I can almost guarantee 9 times out of 10 they’ll have it for a better price then the shop does.


The Miss Diagnosed Costume comes in a translucent plastic bag with all of the accessories separately sealed inside plastic wrap. There’s a thin plastic hook on the bag that makes transportation easy, as well as hanging in a closet when not in use. Since it’s a costume and not a sex toy, there’s nothing on it thats embarrassing, rude or offensive, just the name of the costume, what’s included, the fabric used and care instructions. On that note, I much prefer products that come in bags rather than boxes or on their own, especially since having a bag means you can safely keep all the parts in one place without the worry of them getting lost.

(You can view images of the packaging here)

The Good

The quality offered is something I didn’t quite expect; each piece is stitched together very well, with no visible tears, loose strings or snags and the seams align perfectly, allowing the dress to fit without being lopsided or uneven. Each of the accents (including ribbons, taffeta underskirt, adjustable elastic shoulder straps and ruffled top) are impeccably sewn (even when I pulled as hard as I could there was no chance they would rip and separate).

*The fabric, being 90% polyester and 10% spandex, is very soft to the touch, stretches well and feels exceptionally comfortable.

The shiny and sleek red vinyl belt is likewise well made, being thick, heavy and feeling far superior to a simple accessory used for a costume. The band used in the headpiece is hard plastic and doesn’t have the sharp comb grooves often found in more traditional headbands, allowing it to be worn for a longer period time. The only cheap looking accessory is the stethoscope, but considering it’s only meant for play it’s not that big of a deal.


Maybe it’s just me, but when all there is  to go by is an airbrushed picture of an unnaturally attractive model, imagining what it would look like on the ‘average’ person is a little difficult. Something I find especially true for someone with real boobs (here’s a surprise for you – real big boobs usually sag!), a phat ass and a little roll or two. Fortunately good websites like Shevibe provide various sizing charts, photo’s of plus sized women, and customer support to help making the hunt a little less of a challenge.

Although this hot costume was a tad too big for me (my own fault), I can say it’s relatively ‘true to size’ and something those between a 14 – 18 would be able to wear comfortably, look great in and feel sexy without also feeling totally self conscious.

*Unfortunately I had to slightly take mine in (thanks to my Grandma for teaching me how to sew), but considering it was only a tad too big it was very simple to do.

The Bad

When it came to things I didn’t like there were only 2, though truthfully one was only an issue because of my body shape, the other can be easily fixed.

First, the belt just didn’t work with the outfit because of my body shape. Located on the center of the dress is a seam which the belt is supposed to hide (at least that what it does in the pictures). Unfortunately the belt doesn’t quite sit on the seam, instead sitting slightly higher and often shifting when worn. If I loosen the belt it sits closer to my hips and doesn’t quite shift as much, but that also means it doesn’t cover the seam. Shitty, I know, but it’s my body type. Meh.

Second, the taffeta underskirt (sewn into the seam) is not covered and rubbed on my stomach causing a sore or raw feeling within a few hours of wear. Fortunately this was something that can be easily fixed by simply wearing a tube-top or thin strapped tank top underneath.

Finally, if you have a large chest you *will* need to wear a bra underneath as there is absolutely no support offered with this outfit. And although the straps are adjustable, you may find that they dig into your shoulders a bit because they are fairly thin (something I found wearing a bra actually helped with).
Cleaning & Care

The 90% polyester 10% spandex blend produces an easy-care, wrinkle-free fabric that’s long-wearing and comfortable. It can be washed and dried on regular settings (though I’d suggest using cold water so the red doesn’t ‘bleed’ and low dryer setting). Since the fibers are man-made, the blend does not “breathe” as readily as natural fibers (which may be a great advantage if the night is cold).

Final Verdict

If you’re like me and hate the horrible in-store costume hunting that occurs each Halloween, or if you simply want to purchase something you love without having to try it on in advance, I highly suggest checking out any of the costumes offered at Shevibe. Not only do they have a fantastic variety of lingerie and costumes (no matter your size), they also have amazing customer service to assist in helping you find the perfect size for your body type.

Let’s not forget, Halloween isn’t the only time you can play dress up – it’s just a good excuse.

*For the record, I still think SheVibe has one of the best looking, well laid out and easy to shop websites I’ve ever seen. Their artist has talent to boot! (go check them out, even if it’s just to look around and see how fantastic it is!)
