BLACK FRIDAY SEX TOY SALES

Rather than leaving you to click around in search of the best Black Friday sex toy sales, I’ve conveniently listed all of my faves below. Consider this a token of my appreciation for your support over the years. That and a way of getting you to buy quality sex toys at a fraction of the cost, ’cause that’s just how I do.

Like last year I tried to streamline this as best I can, but if you’ve got some time to spare, I suggest doing a quick scroll through all the deals – that way you’ll be sure to get exactly what you want at the best prices. Beware, the list this year is long and surprisingly detailed… that’s what you get when I spend 3 days jumping between sites, comparing prices, emailing manufacturers for advance notice, and doing my damnedest to help you save!

Want to thank me for hooking you up? Just remember to clear your cookies and cache before you link to your favorite store, that way you can be sure I’ll make a tiny commission anytime you shop. It’s usually not a lot of money, but it’s enough to keep me doing something I love.

Black Friday BDSM Sales 2016

For those of you into BDSM, I put together an extra little section so you wouldn’t have to hunt around online. Personally I think this list has enough stuff to help you get started, or add to your repertoire. I’ll be adding more as I find them, but for now this should do.

Tantus silicone sex toys, the best you can get!Black Friday Sex Toy Sales Fleshlight Black Friday Sex Toy Sales at SheVibeblack friday sex toy sales pinkcherry


Split Peaches

When it comes to new companies popping up on the scene making body safe, colorful, fun, and out of the box sex toys, Split Peaches just can’t be ignored. From Unicorn Horn dildos to the steampunk themed Rivitor dildo, screwdriver dildos to an adorable glow-in-the-dark ‘grenade’ butt plug (trust me, it’s not as scary as it sounds), they’ve got a handful of stuff you won’t find anywhere else.

So, if you’re a little over the standard shaped dildos… or if you just want to try something new, I highly suggest taking advantage of their Black Friday sex toy sales. There’s only one sale going, 25% off EVERYTHING with code ‘BLACKFRIDAY2016’, but the price points are already reasonable so it’s a win/win.


Tantus Black Friday Sales

Black Friday Sex Toy Sales - Tantus Tantus, the makers of some of the worlds best silicone toys, one of my absolute most favorite companies ever, has just one major sale going… if you don’t yet own anything by them I HIGHLY suggest you take advantage while you can and treat yo self! You’ll thank me for it later, promise!

As for why you’d want everything Tantus makes;

  • they’re 100% medical grade silicone and won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube, or bacteria
  • are phthalate and latex free (no toxins here!)
  • are easy to care for and clean
  • come in a variety of amazing colors and styles
  • have the very best customer service
  • and most importantly – the toys they make will last you a lifetime with a minimum amount of care. Yes, you’ll spend a bit more than you would on some shitty jelly toy, but you’ll NEVER have to replace them (saving you money in the long run!).

If you still aren’t sure about Tantus I suggest you watch my Tantus Haul video and read about why I’ve loved Tantus for the last 10 years.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the sales…

  • First and foremost, the grab bag section has products that are already heavily discounted, we’re talking excessive savings on a normal day… well, right now everything is 40% off so you can save EVEN MORE MONEY! If you don’t care too much about the colors, but want a kick ass toys that are made to last a life time, start here!

Not sure what to buy?

I’ve included some of my fave items below.

There are obviously other things they make that I love, so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

When looking at prices remember I haven’t applied the 40% off!

Fleshlight Black Friday Sales

If there was ever a product range that gave me “penis envy”, it would be made by Fleshlight. Don’t know what a Fleshlight is or why you NEED one? Check the video above, I made it and it explains everything (if you can’t view it here, you should be able to watch on YouTube here).

As for deals, they always have something going on… and Black Friday at Fleshlight is no exception! I’ve listed the sales by percentage below, that way you’ll be able to easily snag the best ones without having to hunt around the site. For the record, everything is 15% – 40% off.

BONUS: Spend $100 get a bonus gift + free shipping, spend $150 get a FREE mystery sleeve + bonus gift + free shipping, spend $200 get a FREE surprise pleasure pack + FREE mystery sleeve + bonus gift + free shipping.

HINT: you’re going to need renew powder to keep your Fleshlight like new, but rather than spending so much on such a small bottle, you’d be better off getting a larger bulk package of corn starch on Amazon. It’s basically the same thing at a fraction of the cost.

DOUBLE HINT: If you want to save a bit more on the Fleshlight Launchpad and don’t mind shopping elsewhere,

EXTRA HINT: (UPDATE: SOLD OUT!) Fans of Jessica Drake or Stoya are in luck! I found another website that’s got a Jessica Drake Swallow Fleshlight for 50% off (*only $32!), or a Stoya Lotus Fleshlight for 50% off (*again, only $32!).

*Note: I’m showing the Canadian prices, for U.S. it might be be slightly lower.

Black Friday Sex Toy Sales ShevibeI’ll be honest, I’ve loved SheVibe since the very first day I saw their website 6+ years ago; the graphics are amazing, the prices are some of the lowest you’ll find, the site itself is ridiculously easy to navigate, they focus on carrying body safe options, and the customer service is fabulous. If there was any place I’d want all my readers to shop, it’s here!

Like last year SheVibe is doing a straight forward tiered sale deal…

  • Get 10% off when you spend $85+, plus free shipping (use code ‘KRINGLE10’)
  • Get 15% off when you spend $100+, plus free shipping (use code ‘KRINGLE15’)
  • Get 20% off when you spend $125+, plus free shipping, (use code ‘KRINGLE20’)
  • PLUS: If you spend $109.99+ you’ll also get a free toybox (use code TOYBOX) at checkout. (Yes, you can use both codes)

Not sure what to snag?

I’ve got a few ideas that’ll save you even more loot…

L'amorouse RosaL’amorouse Rosa G-Spot Vibe

Right now my favorite g-spot vibe is the L’amorouse Rosa; the vibrations are deep and rumbly, the body safe silicone is smooth, supple, and so lovely to touch, there’s 9 different vibration settings to go through, it’s rechargeable, waterproof, whisper quiet, and the curve is like nothing I’ve ever experienced.

Although it’s not the cheapest toy around, coming in at $128 (with “KRINGLE20” discount), SheVibe has it for the lowest price I’ve seen anywhere so far.

– The Perfect G-Spot Kit

Njoy Pure Wand

Liberator Decor Throe

Decor Throe

Sliquid H2O Water Based Lube

Sliquid H20

You could pair the definitive g-spot ‘dildo’, Njoy Pure Wand for $99 (Njoy has it listed for $110) + Liberator Decor Throe for $89 (reg $120), or any of the Liberator Throes for that matter, + 4oz bottle of Sliquid H2O for $8, then use code ‘KRINGLE20’ at checkout and save an additional 20%, plus free shipping! Honestly, if I could pick any combo of toys to give someone, this one would be it. If you’re a squirter you’ll thank me for this later. Promise.

*with the discount code you’re looking at saving $80 vs buying items separately at regular price!

Off To Catalyst Con!

ccontravelingAfter a bus cancellation due to a freak winter storm (yay, Canada!) and a flight booked at an almost unreasonable price…  I’m finally on my way. Cue that whiny song from Armageddon. Not the Neil Diamond one. His version was decent.

Where am I going and what’s so worth it, you ask?

I’m headed to a place I’ve dreamed of for the last 2 years. It’s a place where sex positive enthusiasts, educators, mentors, retailers, game changers, and sex minded folks evolve and flourish. At least that’s what I’m hoping for, because I need a little more of it in my life.

I’ve seen all the pictures, read all. the. blog. posts. and *sad pandad* at the fact that I missed out…. but not this time! In a nutshell, I’m headed to Washington, DC to take part in Catalyst Con.

CatalystCon is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. It is about reaching out and stimulating those who attend to create those important conversations in their own communities, changing how we as a society talk and treat sexuality.  It is about stimulating the activist that is within all of us and sparking transformation in the way our friends, neighbors, children and even politicians discuss one of the most important aspects of humanity“.

Sound rad? probably because it is.

CatalystCon East '14I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t overwhelmed by the excitement; there’s so many fellow bloggers I’m finally going to meet (I’d list them, but there’s way too many to count), an abundance of learning I’m going to do (especially looking forward to Creating Change In The Sex Toy Industry, The Business Of Blogging About Sex, Why Is The Media Afraid of Sex, and Promiscuity: Virtue or Vice)  a dinner with an epic group of people to be had, and to top it off, I’ll be in the same space with the vast majority of people who have inspired me over the years; Metis Black, Carol Queen, Ducky DooLittle, Tristan Taormino, Jackie Strano, to name a few…  those are all very big deals. Also, I’ll be doing this myself, both in terms of traveling and forking over hard earned cash (prices for traveling from Canada are fucking ridic). Sure, I’ve traveled on my own before, but this is very different.

So friends, I have a little favor to ask… if you see me and want to say hi, PLEASE DO! If I seem a little caught off guard at first, don’t take it personally, it’s only because I’m either awestruck by meeting you or so happy to finally put a name to the face that I look like a surprised lost monkey. How’s about we just pretend you’re meeting the IKEA monkey… but without the fun jacket, and I’m actually happy to be there.

As it stands I’m at the airport, my belongings strewn about like a haphazard child waiting for her turn in the sandbox, and I think it’s finally starting to hit me. I’m going to #CCON! Now let’s just hope I don’t pee myself from all the excitement.

Sit back, relax, let me come to you. Sign up through the form below and have my posts sent straight to your inbox. Don’t worry, I promise not to spam you!

Become a Sex Toy Reviewer – Part 6 – Vlogging Tips & Suggestions

To finish up my 3 part series on vlogging and blogging, as brought on by a bunch of twitter DM’s from Pantophile Panic, I offer you this; a shit tonne of my vlogging tips and suggestions.  May they serve you well.

Here’s the first part in the vlogging vs blogging series composed of 9 Q&A’s.
The second part, filled with another 9 Q&A’s, can be found here.

As for the question that got it all started…

 

Twitter DM Pantophile Panic Kara_Sutra

Oh, geez. I have so many… too many probably. I could blurt them all out in my usual fashion, but I think breaking things down to cover the internet, all the cons, and filming tips, would probably serve you best. With that said and done, let’s wrap this baby up!

On The Internets:

  • First and foremost, don’t entrust all of your content to a site, whether it be YouTube, WordPress, Vimeo or otherwise. I’d suggest using YouTube to host your videos online (specifically YouTube, the reach is invaluable), and using another that’s far more sex friendly to embed the videos on your website. That way if some dipshit decides to flag and remove them it wont affect your websites content.
  • On that note, buy a USB flash drive and use it often. When I started 6 years ago I was naive and didn’t think I’d need one, suffice to say many of my original videos weren’t saved anywhere other than YouTube… so when they shut me down (we’ll get into that later) I had no copies of my own. If I could go back in time I’d pelt myself with Belladonnas Bitch Fist for that. HARD. I’ve learned a lot since then.
  • It can’t be denied, YouTube is the one of the best sites when trying to extend your reach. Use it to its full advantage; include links to your blog, social media profiles, and other related material in the description box. And don’t forget to add tags and annotations. These are by far the most under used and easiest to employ elements of the site.
  • With over 100 hrs of video uploaded to YouTube every minute it’s harder than ever to build a loyal following and get noticed, as such don’t let low video views be a determining or demotivating factor in your worth as a content creator or reviewer, and don’t expect overnight ‘success’ with the first video you put up. Make videos because you have a passion for it and want to change things for the better, not to get rich or be famous. Sure, Bieber did it. You likely wont. #pessimist #truth
  • The more videos you make the more likely your stuff will show up in YouTube searches and be seen, remember that if you’re trying to build a following. On that note, create playlists and set up your account so videos link to the playlist. It not only ensures your content stays visible, it makes sourcing it easy and automatic.
  • Try to post videos regularly, i.e. once a week or bi-weekly. It’ll help keep your content fresh, give everyone a chance to catch up on anything they’ve missed, and give your a viewers a schedule to follow. If they know you post often, they’ll keep checking back.
  • If you opt to make videos weekly, do your best not to burn out. There was a point where I was doing 3 videos a week. I think it broke my brain… and vagina.
  • Share your video across social bookmarking sites like Delicious and StumbleUpon, work your social networks like Twitter and Facebook to the best of their ability, and do your best to find that happy medium between ‘spamming’ people and sharing content. Because twitter streams tend to update quickly you can probably get away with posting a video a couple times a day, however on Facebook that shit just wont fly.
  • After about a week, embed the video on your site and go through the process of sharing it again. It’ll help draw more traffic to both your video and website.
  • If you choose to use YouTube, and I think you should, you can easily employ a ‘subscribe’ widget to your blog that allows people to subscribe to your channel without having to leave your website. The peeps at YouTube are some clever little s.o.b’s.

 

On the Negatives:

  • Keep in mind that once you put yourself out there, what you do can be found by anyone. at anytime. anywhere. Family can find out what you do. Friends can find out what you do. Partners can find out what you do. Your arch nemesis can find out what you do. Potential employers can find out what you do. Even if it was something you did, but don’t do any longer, it doesn’t matter. There is no total delete button for the internet. Be sure before you make the decision to go ‘public’.
  • You will likely be inundated w/ more questions than you have time to answer (specific to YouTube). People might even get shitty with you simply because you didn’t answer quickly enough. My suggestion; craft up a reply that can be cut and pasted to let them know you’ll get back when you can. If that’s not enough, state in your videos that you wont be taking questions unless it’s through your websites contact form. If all else fails, avoid your inbox like the plague. Crappy I know, but your sanity is important.
  • Depending on the content your creating, you may get shut down. I’m far too well versed with this one. Learn to take it personally and be proud. Obviously something you’re doing is pushing boundaries. That’s not a bad thing. Ducky DooLittle taught me that. She is a legend.
  • If you don’t already have one, develop a thick skin. People can be very mean when they don’t have to be held accountable for their words.
  • Just remember, your safety and well being are important. If at any time you feel threatened or targeted you have every right to report it… or you could always call on your many online supporters to act like sex positive warriors and fight for you (I’m only half kidding on that one, not really. #bringonthetroops).
  • Since I’m on the topic of trolls, you might want to set your account so comments can only be posted with your approval. To do this select from within your YouTube account Video Manager> Edit (the video you’re selecting)>Advance Settings>Check ‘Allow Comments’>From the Drop Down Menu ‘Approved’>Save. Done and done.
  • Make very good friends with the concept of blocking and deleting. It will serve you well.

 

On Filming:

  • Write point form notes or simple cue cards of everything you want to cover, they’ll come in handy when you lose your train of thought. And you will lose your train of thought eventually. If you can manage it, take the time to write yourself a script, just make sure that if you do this it doesn’t sound like you’re reading one when you’re filming. That shit’s just tacky.
  • If you think you can film an entire review in one shot, do it. Otherwise try to film it in segments, it’ll make editing much easier.
  • Instead of spending a lot of money on a new camera try playing with the lighting in the room or settings on the camera. Sometimes being in a brighter or darker environment can make a world of difference when it comes to the quality of your output. You can also go the route of learning these 5 tips for beginner vlogging with a DSLR camera, but in most cases you’ll likely have a simple digital camera, so that’s just unnecessary until you’re ready to graduate up.
  • I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve gone to film only to have my camera battery die half way through. Make sure everything is ready before you film i.e. camera and product are both fully charged (if it’s a vibe etc), with back up batteries near by just in case.
  • If you don’t have a camera with a swiveling flip screen (so you can watch as you film) prop a mirror behind the camera so you can test angles, see if you’re centered, and check what works best. If a mirror doesn’t work for you, try hooking your camera up to a monitor or tv so you can view the live feed. Here’s how to do that (scroll down to “Composite”).
  • Do yourself a favor and learn to work with a timer. Maybe for you it will be different, but since I talk a lot I tend to go way past a 10 minute mark without trying. This leads to more editing. More cutting. More deleting. More work. If you can keep your content between 8 – 10 mins, you’re good. Otherwise plan for a lot of unnecessary wasted time.
  • Remember that each video you make is likely going to take much longer than you think; between scripting or crafting notes, filming, editing, uploading to a site, embedding to your blog, and linking through social media outlets, each 5 minute video will likely take many hours to from start to finish. That’s a lot time spent on something that sometimes nets no payout. Again, do it because you love it, not because you want to get rich.
  • Be patient with yourself and know that you’re going to fuck up. Seriously. Once you make peace with that and learn to laugh at your mistakes you’ll be fine. They do make for some pretty hilar blooper videos.
  • Most importantly be real, be honest, and be yourself. That will carry a lot of weight in whether or not people choose to follow or subscribe to your videos.

And done.

So that wraps up this lil 3 parter covering Vlogging vs Blogging! A big thanks goes out to Pantophile Panic for reaching out and asking a shit tonne of great questions, here’s her website here. If you still haven’t read it, hit up her post on the dangers of toxic jelly sex toys. It’s a doozy.

Rock The Red Pump Project

note: I’m copying this from a page on the website in order to help spread the project.

“Every 47 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.“

On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.

While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.

In observance of NWGHAAD, we are back with our 4th Annual Rock the Red Pump™ Campaign! The campaign’s goal is to generate conversation in blogosphere about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women.

In the 50 days leading up to March 10th, we ask bloggers to place one of our 5 badges on their websites to represent the strength and courage of women fighting HIV/AIDS or affected by the disease. Then on NWGHAAD, people across blogosphere dedicate their posts to talking about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Well, this year, we’d like to paint blogosphere red on March 9, 2012, a Friday. And then on March 10th, we’ll be having events in cities across the country. Details to come on those!

Whether you are a first-time participant or an “old” pro, we thank you for supporting this movement! There are also other ways for you to demonstrate your involvement in the 50 days leading up to March 10th.

  • Dedicate a post to the important issue of HIV/AIDS and women on March 9, 2012 (We’re choosing to paint blogosphere FIERCE on this day because March 10 is a Saturday this year). Need some statistics to get started? Check out our HIV/AIDS 101 page.
  • Participate in our weekly #RedPumpDiaries Twitter discussions on a variety of important sexual health topics
  • Spread the word and tell a friend!
  • Make this your blog post to help draw attention.

Don’t have a blog?

You can also follow @RocktheRedPump on Twitter for your one-stop shop on ALL things campaign-related (and our main account @RedPumpProj.

In 2011, over 1,250 blogs participated in the campaign, so we’ve decided to push for 2,500 blogs this year! Do you think we can do it? Stay tuned as we’ll announce the results on March 9, 2012!

Thank you for your support and we look forward to joining us to “Rock the Red Pump” in 2012!

~ White Ribbon Campaign ~

Every so often I’m compelled to share something even though it might not be in perfect alignment with what I do as a sexual educator or product reviewer. Such is the case with this post. As you’ll notice it has nothing that directly deals with sexuality, dating, relationships, intimate accessories or the like, yet it does speak volumes regarding men and their respect towards women both in and outside of the bedroom.

As I’ve said in many of my own videos, when people feel safe, secure and respected they are better able to explore their sexuality and sensuality. They’re more willing to relax in  the moment and allow a very intimate experience to unfold. They’re less likely to shy away and give themselves permission to feel comfortable in the situation, not fearing any punishment, retribution, shame or guilt. That for me is where the White Ribbon Campaign to stop violence against women plays an important role. While it may not be sexually or sexuality driven, it does drive home the message that allowing and/or condoning inequality or violence is simply not okay. In any shape. In any form.

Having grown up in an environment where feeling safe wasn’t always a possibility, I feel both a personal and social responsibility to help get this message out. No woman should ever feel threatened. No child should ever fear for his or her Mothers life. It’s that simple.

If you’d like to help you can contact the fantastic folks the White Ribbon Campaign to see how you can get involved.

p.s. my lovely fiance is in this video and I consider myself blessed to have a man in my life that’s not only supportive of what I do, but also loves, respects and treats me the way I deserve. The way all women deserve. Jamie if you’re reading this, please know that I love you more than you know & am honored to share my life with you. Thank you for stepping up and taking part in such a fantastic campaign. The world needs more men like you. ♥♥♥
