A Bumpy Ride: First Time Pegging

Most of what I write here at Scandarella is either toy reviews or complete fiction. I don’t often write about myself, about the Fella, or what we do with and to each other when the sun goes down. But I’m gonna look at real life for a change. I’m gonna take y’all way back when to the first time I ever shimmied my ass into a strap-on harness so that I could fuck the Fella with a faux cock.

Of all the things we’ve tried together, him deciding that he wanted to be on the receiving end of anal was the one that surprised me the most. Continue reading “A Bumpy Ride: First Time Pegging”

Temptasia Elvira by Blush Novelties Review

Even though I’ve refused to tell my friends and family my blog’s actual name, I’m happy to yap on about what goes down here whenever I get the chance. We talk about my stories and, more often than not, sex toys. Recently, a friend shocked the shit out of me when she announced that, despite my warnings (and occasional death threats) she still buys toxic/porous toys. Why? Cos she thinks that silicone ones are too expensive. I nearly tripped over my own tongue in my haste to prove her wrong. It was easily done, cos just so happened to have the Temptasia Elvira sat in my review pile.

The Elvira is a silicone dildo that’s made by one of my favourite ‘we do a bit of everything’ brands, Blush Novelties. And do you know how much it costs? A mere $27.60 if you’re shopping at SheVibe (or £23.99 in the UK). My mate paid $35.99 (£29.99) for her rubbery monstrosity. That’s a significant difference in price, right? But when I compared the two products, I pointed out that the only real difference between them in terms of design is realism. Continue reading “Temptasia Elvira by Blush Novelties Review”

Roses & Lilies

**This story is part of my Bloodlust Vampire Series, part one of which you can find here.**

While sitting on an iron bench in the most secluded part of City Gardens, trying to live in the moment instead of mulling over the historical, my eyes are drawn to a small flower. The leaves of the bush it’s growing on are a glossy green so deep they make the scarlet bloom look almost bloody.

Such a pretty rose.

As soon as my mind names the flower a memory swoops in, entirely unbidden, to drag me back into the past. I don’t go far back, though. Just a handful of years to a comment my own sweet Rose made in one of her regular fits of fearlessness. It amuses me so much I laugh out loud. Continue reading “Roses & Lilies”

Love Links #21

In the past two weeks I’ve been ruined, folks. Ruined in the best of ways. How? It was my turn to do roundups for Wicked Wednesday last week and Masturbation Monday this week, and meme queens, Marie Rebelle and Kayla Lords, both gave me super spooky, Halloween themed prompts! My fellow bloggers brought the tricks and the treats with some fabulous pieces, making choosing my top picks so very hard. You’ll find links to my fave threes below, along with some other awesome posts. Not all of them are Halloween themed, but I promise you that they all deserve your clicks. Check them out and don’t forget to leave some comment love, give ’em a share, or mash the old like button so all these lovely blogger folks know you stopped by. Continue reading “Love Links #21”

The Hanging Tree

**CW: this piece contains dub-con and death. Happy Halloween!**

“They say this part of the woods is haunted. That a handful of centuries ago, those accused of witchcraft were brought here after their trials – they were invariably found guilty – for execution by hanging. Though official records weren’t kept in those darker times, it’s estimated that at least a hundred and fifty women died beneath this very tree. While some of them would surely have been guilty of crimes both minor and major, the vast majority of them would have been innocent. Continue reading “The Hanging Tree”

Satisfyer Pro 4 Couples Guest Review

Earlier on in the year, the super generous folks from Satisfyer sent me a whopping big box full of goodies. Some of them I’ve reviewed and others are up for grabs in my Halloween 2018 Giveaway. And one was popped in the post and sent to my lovely friend, the awesome Posy Churchgate, so she could give us her unbiased opinion. Read on to find out what she thought of the Satisfyer Pro 4 Couples…

I have not tried any products by Satisfyer before this one was sent to me by Scandarella to review, but I was immediately impressed by the presentation and the packaging. Continue reading “Satisfyer Pro 4 Couples Guest Review”

LELO Lily 2 Scented Vibrator Review

Love em or hate em, there’s no denying the fact that LELO is one of the biggest names in luxury sex toys. Personally, I’m a lover. Sure, they have some pieces of tripe in their catalogue, but most of the products of theirs that I’ve tried have made me happy. Their Smart Wands are to die for, and they do some lovely anal toys. But one product I’ve long been curious about is the LELO Lily 2. I mean, it’s not every day a brand comes along with a chocolate scented vibrator, is it?

Lelo Lily 2 Review, Purple pebble shaped vibrator in black packaging

As with all LELO products, the Lily 2 is very smartly packaged. Along with the toy itself, you’ll find a USB pin charger, storage bag, lube sample, warranty card, and a couple of leaflets, all tucked neatly away in little compartments. It’s definitely worth registering your toy to activate your warranty, especially when it’s a high-end, high price tag one. LELO offers a 12-month fault/defect replacement warranty. The replacement is discretionary, though, they’ll want the toy so they can investigate before they pay out. Once the warranty expires the quality guarantee kicks in. This gives you 50% off a replacement should your toy croak within a 10-year period. Continue reading “LELO Lily 2 Scented Vibrator Review”

Uberrime Calaveras Halloween Dildo Review

Here’s a very well-known fact for you: I love reviewing sex toys. And here’s another one: I love Halloween. But what happens when you put those two loves together? The Uberrime Calaveras Dildo, that’s what. Yep, it’s time for me to write my annual Halloween product review, and I’m one very happy Spookarella.

I know it wasn’t, but the Uberrime Calaveras appeals to me on so many levels it almost feels like it was designed specially for me. The part of me that lives for the spooky and the macabre gets so excited by it I could scream with joy every time I look at it. I mean, glow in the dark skulls for testicles? I’m so fucking here for that! A planchette shaped base? Sign me up! Continue reading “Uberrime Calaveras Halloween Dildo Review”

Broken Idol

**To see this image in its original post, click here to visit Maria Merian’s site**

In the muted light of his workshop, Piero stuck out his tongue and considered the figure in front of him. He tasted dust on his lips, drew it into his mouth, felt the sandiness of it scuffing against his teeth. With the most loving of touches, he smoothed a rough patch here, reshaped a bit there, added a little more detail with a small metal tool. At last, the final curl had taken shape. He sat back on his heels, sweating, filthy, starving almost to the point of emaciation, to marvel at his newest creation. Continue reading “Broken Idol”

Screaming O Toone Dual Motor Vibe Review

Up until recently, my only experience with the Screaming O brand was a triple pack of crappy cock rings. And the only products I’d ever spotted bearing their name had all been jelly and awful. But recently, I discovered that they make quite a bit of stuff in silicone. They’re budget-friendly, body safe, and some pieces are rather nice looking. One such product is this, the Screaming O Toone Dual Motor Vibe.

Screaming O Toone Dula Motor Vibe Review, Pink double-pronged vibrator in a white and pink box

The Toone is a cute pink mini vibe with a little round body and two stubby ears. My first impression when I got my paws on it was how comfy it is in the hand. The body is basically a ball with a 6” circumference. The flattened base (where the pin charger port is located) sits flush against my palm and my fingers curl around the ball, leaving the prongs free to do their thing. It’s just the right size so I get no cramping, which can happen when holding something smaller. Nor do I lose my grip when my hands get wet cos my fingers clamp around it and hold it still.
