The Crystal Cuckoo!!



My entry into this weeks Toy with me Tuesday #7


I really loved these crystal eggs they offer themselves to be photographed in so many ways which I tried; I did arty, fun, elegant, silly and still came down to loving this simple nest.
I did elegant with sexy lingerie, I tried next to crystal jewellery and other crystal items; I added light effects, rolling them with different shutter speeds but no.... I...still...loved...this...nest.

The sunlight was shining through them just beautifully giving them a gorgeous lit effect but the pik doesnt show that as much as I'd like.

It was a chance find in my garden and of course how could I resist with my love of all things feathered, this was perfect for me. It was empty of course I'd have never scared the poor blue tit who was originally in it...bless her. Can you imagine her face if she came back to find these in her nest. 
It must have been that crystal Cuckoo who laid these.

Midnight Boudoir 1 year Today!!




Wow I cant believe a year has passed since I decided to combine my passion of photography and sextoys and all things naughty.

I have been a published writer and photographer for over 30 years now so I decided to start a website on reviewing the many sextoys I had and combine my love of writing and photography. I wanted to make it fun, flirty with lots of advice to those that struggle to orgasm, or find their G-spots etc. Being an ex-nurse too I wanted to be able to combine my knowledge to help others; so Midnight Boudoir is far more than just a review blog to me.

I never dreamt it would become a fulltime hobby, I just thought Id upload a few posts a month to see how things went; enabling me to have fun with my trusty camera. Little did I know Midnight Boudoir was going to take off like she has, Im so proud of what she has become.

I also value my OH input on everything I review, he has an uncanny knack of seeing products completely differently to me, discovering the most innovative ways to use certain items, plus noticing the way motors run etc; I love being able to offer the male opinion too.

In the last year of having the wonderful opportunity of trying the latest and greatest sextoys. I have learnt so much more about myself and what I enjoy, I never thought at my age I could still be learning about my body.
 
 
I have found I adore my bunnies; each one of them is so very different to the other. 

Like every sextoy around it will have its strengths and weaknesses; its finding a match for us all individually. The amazing toys around at this time from the top manufacturers will take your body to its limit and more..!!.
This is why I decided to start Midnight Boudoir to try to help match people with a toy that will suit them.

Some toys I would never have bought....eeep or even wear..but they felt fab, now I have several harness and strap-ons and I love wearing them.

I want to thank all of you that have supported me over the last year and I never dreamt of finding so many new friends among fellow bloggers and companies on this amazing journey. 
You all know who you are. Hugs xxx

Thanks to those of you that asked me questions and shared many private problems either relationship or sexual worries, I'm so pleased to have been able to help.
I especially want to thank all the companies that have sent me their amazing products to review your feedback has been wonderful!

So what's next for Midnight Boudoir?
I have alot instore for you this year, I now have been kindly offered some goodies from various companies that I will be offering as competition give away's in the next few weeks and months. Plus I have many other brand new review products coming up; its all exciting stuff!

My newest piece of news is that I have just opened my new Sister site Midnight Boudoir's Reviews for all things Non-adult. It will be mainly for my love of gadgets, books as I have been receiving many other review items. She is my angelic side!
So from my ever growing rabbit warren and me I want to say a huge huge thank you to everyone who has been involved with Midnight Boudoir!
Thank you and I hope you will all join me on another year of fun and toying around.

Silk Stockings- Edited by Antonia Adams





I few months ago I was lucky enough to have received the whole  The secret library to review and Silk Stocking is the third book of the Secret Library I have read so far and I haven't been disappointed yet.


I love the idea of this new set of books that are velvet bound and beautifully designed so no one realises you are reading such erotica, no sideways glances on the train as people see the front page emblazoned with naked couples clearly in the throes of ecstasy; as you quickly try and hide the front cover with your hands to carry on reading the pages completely embarrassed.

 Silk stockings has a lovely turquoise blue cover under the black velvet flock..


In Silk Stockings you have 3 novellas from our best erotic writers and this is no exception its another brilliant read.

Silk Stockings by Constance Munday

When Michael Levenstein meets Imogen, an exotic dancer at a Berlin nightclub, a passionate and intense love story develops.  Michael becomes obsessed by mysterious Imogen and falls into a world of intense sexual fantasy and desire. But Imogen is determined to protect a personal, dark secret at all costs and because of this she has forbidden herself love.
With Imogen afraid of committing and afraid of losing what she has fought for so desperately, can Michael break down her barriers and discover a solution to his lover’s deep dark secret, thus freeing the enigmatic Imogen to truly love him?

This was an unusual novella for me as it was a very passionate story about an extreme fetish of stockings; everything about them, the texture, deniere, colour, putting them on, rolling them off. Something I hadnt really considered to be an extreme fantasy. Constance brought Imogen to life in the fact she had spent her whole life being persued and admired by men..actually not her..but her amazing legs which were born to wear stockings; this had made her hardened to the world of sex and men.
At first I felt Imogen was being quite arrogant with the new man in her life expecting him to adore her legs and stockings;  as its all she has ever known I completely understood why she acted in this way.
Throughout the whole story Imogen lives for wearing stockings; silk ones and only the best and most luxurious. Michael Levenstein becomes obsessed with her and her sexy legs and genuinely wants to get to know her as a person, but she is quite guarded in the beginning just assuming he wants her for her legs.
I loved the way he gradually was able to break her down to relax and enjoy that someone loves her for not just her legs. It really is quite an intense plot and I didn't warm to her as I would l have liked . I found myself warming to Michael alot more than Imogen. All in all a good read that conveys the whole stocking fetish scene.

She hopes that her work will always be fresh and thought provoking and give the reader something to think about, as she says, ‘there’s nothing I won’t tackle and if I come up with a simple idea for a story whether it’s mainstream, gay, lesbian or fantasy - I’ll have a crack at it, even if it draws a bit of controversy.  I like to be continually writing and trying out new ideas and I always favour writing a story with a strong and passionate romance as its basis and with strong characters who are a bit different and able to accept their faults and use them.’
She loves giving talks about books and magic, is an ardent lover of nature and cats and enjoys ballet, Victorian costume, collecting books and travelling.  Pressed for longer stories she is currently working really hard on her third novel and a number of other projects and is delighted to be involved with the fabulous ‘Secret Library,’ collection.

The Lord of Summer – Jenna Bright
Banished to the back of beyond, in the middle of a long, hot summer, Gem and Dan Parker find their marriage filling up with secrets. As they work to reopen the Green Man pub, tensions and unacknowledged desires come between them. From their first night, when Gem sees someone watching them make love from the edge of the woods, her fantasies of having two men at once start to grow and consume her. As the temperature rises, she becomes fixated by her imaginings of an impossible, gorgeous, otherworldly man in the forest. A man who could make her dreams come true – and maybe save her marriage.


A fast paced easy read from another new author for me, I thoroughly enjoyed this novella from Jenna Bright. Gema and Dan Parker husband and wife team are assigned to a new pub in the middle of nowhere by their sleazy boss assuming they would hate it there.
They plan to make a complete new life at a new pub called the Green man, but as they begin renovations for its reopening they both start to feel super sexy and erotic desires begin to surface, Gema starts to think of her fantasy of having sex with 2 men and when she sees someone watching her and Dan having sex; she is completely turned on by this fact instead of feeling embarrassed; fuelling her latent desires.
Gema goes in search of this stranger which leads to more super hot scenes between her and a supernatural stranger, urban legend and finally together with her husband.
I warmed quickly to all three of them and I found Gema, Dan and this stranger all completely relatable and the sex realistic.  I loved the supernatural feel to this novella being a lover of magic and mystery I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The plot was an easy fast read with super hot believable scenes.

Author Bio
Born with an over-active imagination, Jenna learnt early to channel her flights of fancy into stories. Later, she discovered a talent for creating sensual worlds filled with sexy scenarios, libidinous lovers and very arousing outcomes. She hopes that you enjoy reading them as much as she enjoys writing them

Off The Shelf by Lucy Felthouse

At 35, travel writer Annalise is fed up with insensitive comments about being left on the shelf. It’s not as if she doesn’t want a man, but her busy career doesn’t leave her much time for relationships. Sexy liaisons with passing acquaintances give Annalise physical satisfaction, but she needs more than that. She wants a man who will satisfy her mind as well as her body. But where will she find someone like that? It seems Annalise may be in luck when a new member of staff starts working in the bookshop at the airport she regularly travels through. Damien appears to tick all the boxes; he’s gorgeous, funny and intelligent, and he shares Annalise’s love of books and travel. 
The trouble is, Damien’s shy and Annalise is terrified of rejection. Can they overcome their fears and admit their feelings, or are they doomed to remain on the shelf?


I have read a few of Lucy's books now and found she has such an easy reading style, she really knows people and how they think its just the little things that make her characters come to life and this book was no exception.
The book has a great start with a sexy hot scene of Annalise playing with her favourite rabbit; a girl after my own heart.
Annalise a travel writer accidentally meets the fun lovable Damian in a book shop and they chat over muffins and coffee. Her Mum, family and friends assume she would be single forever and had given up trying to fix her up with guys, where she suffered continual embarrassment and humiliation from blind dates etc. She had dreamed of someone who liked her for her, not just her body.

I was completely comfortable with Annalise she was so relateable and I adored Damian as he was my kinda guy fun, friendly not too flirty a real gent; embarrassed about little things. Most of all funny he made me laugh.
I thoroughly enjoyed this fast easy flowing read and at only 65 pages is perfect to grab some "me" time with. This is an adorable romance that ends in a super passionate sex scene built from the sexual tension that had been building beautifully throughout the story. I found Annalise so likeable it felt like I was watching a best friend having a romance with someone I knew; they felt so familiar. Lucy really brings these two characters to life making them completely real in your imagination; she adds the little things that we all do to make them familiar to us on print.. er...ok pixels.
The ending was expected for me but so very steamy, it was such a great sex scene as it was completely natural as these two were completely made for each other;I loved this novella. A wonderful romance story, quite vanilla but oh so very natural and sexy; another great read from Lucy felthouse.

This was a fun read and I loved reading 2 stories from two new authors for me, this is what makes reading mixed books fun. All three stories are well written and super sexy and to the same standard as the other 2 Secret Library books I have read so far.
So we have extreme elegant fetish, supernatural and urban legend with the Green man and travel erotica all completely different types of story in 3 completely different settings, great editing Antonia.

Crystal Premium Glass Eggs - Pink Strips

By NS Novelties

This is my 3rd product review from NS Novelties something I was really excited to try as I have only recently tried kegal balls for the first time. These are not only beautiful crystal glass but great for sexual health too. Those of you that know me, know being an ex-nurse a toy that will help health as well as give pleasure is important to me.

Here is an article I wrote explaining everything about your pelvic floor and why we need to keep it exercised.
Explore your pelvic Floor


Here is a basic diagram showing you how it effects everything down below; Bladder, vagina, rectum and your anal sphincter.
Our pelvic floor muscles, can lose their strength for many reasons, childbirth, certain pelvic problems and ageing. This leads to embarrassing symptoms such as incontinence and lack of sexual pleasure.
 A weak pelvic floor literally sags, and when the muscles are weak, you’ll find it very difficult to get them back with the usual squeeze "n" release' exercises.
If it bears weight for a long time (such as pregnancy), the muscles or tissues can become over stretched and weak. This can be a normal temporary problem after childbirth; but without exercises will cause problems in later life.
The signs of a weak pelvic floor are 
  • The feeling of needing to urinate frequently 
  • Incontinence,
  • Inability to orgasm or struggling to do so.
  • Sex becomes less satisfying,
  • leaking when you cough or sneeze or laugh,  
If you want to know more detailed information please have a peek at my full article 
 or if you have questions contact me directly. 



These beautiful crystal eggs comes in 3 designs, Black and white, pink with white strips and mine which I love which is the Clear with pink strips.


Packaging

They arrive in a white cardboard box with a perfect graphic image of them on the front and on the back there are windows showing them clearly as they are. The packaging is beautifully discreet that could easily be given as a luxury gift to a friend. Most people probably wouldn't know what they actually are anyway.


Design
The whole collection is made of the highest quality 100% hand-blown Borosilicate glass also known as "Thermal glass", which is the most durable and safest glass used in sextoy glass manufacture  today.
These 2 elliptical shaped glass eggs are individually made by highly skilled craftsmen and it really shows, you cant help but juggle gently in the palm of your hand (my Oh is squirming at this moment), they feel so cool and so smooth, just gorgeous.


These hand made crystal eggs are clear with pink strips painted onto them giving that gorgeous femininity. They are smooth in your hands with a nice substantial weight to them of 3.40 oz.

Here they are compared to chicken eggs.
Well it had to be done didn't it; corny as it is; how could I miss an opportunity to photograph these stunning crystal eggs with our breakfast.

They measure 1.75 in length and 1 inch in width so are quite small. Seen together with chicken eggs you can immediately see how small they are; perfect for those of us still new to kegal exercisers.

They are designed to be inserted into the vagina either one at a time or both together to help strengthen our kegal muscles; being glass you can also heat them up or cool them down for that extra pleasure.
With your eggs you also get a gorgeous satin black bag to keep them in, protecting them from scratches and dirt; a nice touch that really gives a luxury quality to them. 

Also included is a detailed leaflet explaining what our kegals are and different exercises and how to use your eggs properly, this is surprisingly detailed.


Use
In my last review on kegal balls I explained that I am quite nervous about getting this type of toy stuck, I will always remember a very embarrassed lady coming into A&E having a weeble stuck in her vagina and had to have "a weeble extraction" yes that is what I had to write in her notes bless her. She had spent hours trying to remove this and of course this has had a lasting impression that has stuck with me for years.

 Tapered thin end

So being the wimp I am I popped both eggs into a very thin condom and using plenty of my favorite Give lube inserted them, being slightly more pointy than a real egg the first inserted easily, but as I tried to insert the second one, the first was already trying to slip out; so seeing the funny side to this I laughed and the more I laughed the more they kept popping out it was like a carry on film...eeep.
Finally I managed to get both eggs inserted being so small I couldn't feel them inside until I started to move around a bit.
Using their instructions I clenched and held for the count of 3-5 seconds, then release for 5 seconds, when you release notice how your muscles feel; then I did approx 5 repetitions of Squeeze/hold/release. Walking around I was aware they were there but had no discomfort; but when I went to sit down I felt a little pinch so I think they had moved around with all my clenching and movement. So the next day I inserted them rounded end first not tip end ...doh and I haven't felt the pinch since.

I think inserting both together for me was too much being so new to these type of toys; so I have been just inserting one at a time and this feels perfect.
I am quite a tight girl anyway so my OH has told me; plus I haven't ever had a baby and I have done some kegal exercises all my life by clenching myself; but probably not as much as I should have been. But I have never used any toys to help before. So now I am hoping to see some results but I have the knowledge that I am doing my kegals regularly, its a good feeling.


Cleaning and Maintenance
Being glass it is non porus and completely waterproof so you can wash your eggs under hot soapy antibacterial water or rinse in the bath or shower. It can even be sterilised in your own dishwasher. I always use Lelo sextoy cleaner as it can left on and it still continues to work with no need to rinse.
These are extremely durable but its obviously advisable not to drop them on a hard surface or against a rough surface like brick etc as they will scratch. Always check you eggs before inserting for any scratches or flaws.
 You then store your crystal eggs in their own satin black bag.

 Rounded bottom end, this looks stunning when the light catches these.
Conclusion.
I love my crystal eggs not only are they brilliant for my sexual and every day health they are beautiful to look at. They are excellent quality with no flaws bubbles or scratches they are perfectly crystal clear.
They can even be left on show in a glass bowl for display as no one will really know what they are for, at the moment I using them as paper weights to stop my household bills from floating away. I have them in my living room on show as they are absolutely stunning when the sun passes through the beautiful glass, giving rainbow effects across the walls.
These are perfect for those like me new to kegal toys or those who use them regularly, they feel completely different to normal kegal balls due to the elliptical shape plus the fact you can heat them up or down for temperature play too.
Heat them up in hot water and roll them over stressed or sore back and muscles they feel amazing. They are a great gift for any girl we all need to exercise those muscles to help improve our sexlife, you know they are working when your other half exclaims how tight you are and how hard you can grip him inside. Im sure he will tell you if they are working or not. Just enjoy!
