I have wanted anything from Crystal Delights in my collection for quite some time now, so when I saw the mystery boxes they have started to sell now and then, it sealed the deal for me and I took the chance to grab one up.
Now, just what is a Mystery Box for them? It is a one-time thing (unless you buy another later), with one product inside of it. Heavily discounted (Box runs 49.95-59.95) but you are still getting a super quality glass toy! They also allow you to put in the option of not wanting to get anything with real fur and go with faux instead if that is what they pick out for you. But why is it a such a discount? This is because it is slightly out of their acceptable specifications, a new color they are trying, a current product they have lower quantity of or even something NEW they are trying. All of the toys they use still meet their safety standards before shipping out, so nothing is poor quality here! Plus the only extra charge they give for it is if you want one of their super plus handmade bags for the toy to store it. So it is actually a super great deal for anyone who might be on a budget but still wants some sparkle in their collection.
Now on to what I ended up getting! I ended up with a lovely Basix Delight Dildo with a blue Swarovski crystal element at the end of it. It is one they normally carry, so either they had it in a low quantity or it could be due to what seemed like the jewel being slightly off center at the end. I wasn’t sure, but I can say that I was not unhappy with what arrived! There will be a separate review later going into detail about this toy!
I have gone through the reviews written on their site and it is amazing what others have ended up with. I saw everything from some of their fantastic tail plugs to other plugs with amazing colors described. I know I am going to have to give it a shot again soon and see what I am sent!
So if you enjoy a good mystery and love high-quality glass toys, but haven’t taken the plunge with Crystal Delights yet I highly recommend ordering one of these lovely surprises!
Normally I throw all of the sales up on my sales page, but this one was too good not give its own post!
For just 2 days this weekend, Tantus has 40% everything in their store! This not only includes all of their own stock, but also things from other brands and their grab bag toys to!
To top it all off, they are introducing a new vibrating, dual-density called Sam that is a nice 1.8″ wide!
And if you spend $100, it’s free US shipping! Code LOVEYA gets the 40% off!
Things have been quiet for me, I haven’t had much to talk about in the way of toys a few reviews I need to finish up that are forthcoming but at the moment I need to speak about an unfortunate interaction I had with a company.
In my time as a Cam Model sometimes I have clients who wish to gift me things. Well I have been going on about wanting a lovely tail plug. More specifically one of the plugs from Crystal Delights because holy hells are they pretty! Well, he wasn’t sold on them and instead asked if he could send me one he saw on another site. After checking it out at first I was pretty sold. It looked lovely and while there was some red flags on the site such as not listing out say measurements of the tail or anything like that. I said sure and he ordered it for me.
The tail mentioned above.
This was pretty good, I got the confirmation of the order rather quickly and then proceeded to wait. Almost a week and a half, not getting one word over what was going on. Which was odd because their site said that orders were filled with in 3 to 5 business days even with the weekend it had been over. So I contacted them on Fetlife where I had found a way to contact them and was told it would take about 10-15 days before my order was sent out. Okay. Strange.
But I waited doing what I could to soothe my client who thought I was using him for free things with out a pay out. Only to have it take past the 15 days and then find out…they had sent it to the wrong address. Now let me say the whole time I was in contact they where so nice. I have no issue with their customer service at all it was refreshing. My package finally came and I couldn’t be happier. Until I opened the package….
The tail which I thought was going to be full and plush like in the picture was so short and stubby. More shaped like a cat tail then a fox tail and no bigger than my head as you can see in the picture. Even when I tried to use it…the plug itself while small enough to fit was made of such hard silicone that it hurt like hell resting inside of me. The whole thing was just a mess and even my client was disappointed by it on cam.
This is why reviews and sites that have good reputations matter, when you know just what you are getting is going to be a quality product. I plan on holding out now for a tail plug that I know is going to be worth it because I know it was made well and has a number of satisfied customers, that being the ones from Crystal Delights and if you are looking for one I suggest that they are the first you look at in your search.
Often when I am not working, I get messages on the tumblr for my cam work, my email or my Skype name that I use for work. Guys who cannot seem to understand that this is a job, that I am not giving out freebies or looking to date.
What makes this worse, is at first I am actually polite. I let them know that I am happy to cam with them and that this is how we can make things work. What is worse is when they don’t understand that no I have set times I can work and I cannot be at beck and call for their pleasure. It’s however when they become irritating that I start to want to pull my hair out. Those are the guys who get the block button on them really quickly.
Though what is worse, is the guys who tip or pay for a show once or twice. Then think that they can just ask for whatever they want without having to ever pay again. Guys who think that just because I spend time talking with them in the room after they get what they paid for that I am entitled to give them more. I have had guys basically take it like suddenly they have put enough into me to basically be a boyfriend or some kind of relationship to me.
It’s honestly frustrating and has this way of making me feel like less of a person. What is even worse is that it has started to make me really worry about people I want to have honest relationships with. That they are only being nice for a short time and then its going to all turn into what they want, rather than what we both want. I am trying my hardest to make sure that it doesn’t cause this feeling anymore but I will be honest sometimes it can be hard. I don’t want to be looked at like someone who just needs to be bought a few things and then I will suddenly put out. I am a human being, no matter what I am doing as a job. People wouldn’t treat me that way if I was working retail still and I know this, when I was working retail people who were ‘courting’ me so to speak put time and effort into it. They didn’t think I was just some easy person.
What makes it worse is that I know there are people who would tell me that well, it is because of the job I am choosing to do. But that is hardly fair, it is what works for me now. It gives me the options that I need and it keeps me able to also be writing which I want to have eventually be my main job. They think they are entitled to say that to me based on the job as well, that it’s an opinion. Which sure people are entitled to, but that doesn’t mean they have to speak it out loud.
In the end, the only person who I am entitled to give or do anything for or to now.
I spent the last few days reading over this blog, and I have changed a lot since I started it over four years ago on a whim when I was not working as often as I liked at my part time job.
- I have lived in three different states.
- I have moved a few times.
- I have grown one hell of a sex toy collection and learned what I like/don’t like.
- I have left an abusive relationship.
- I have discovered new turn ons and kinks I never thought I would have.
- I have learned how to have new kinds of orgasms.
- I have discovered who I am sexually.
- I have been able to open up about what I want in a relationship
- I have discovered that I am not a monogamous person, that I am very happily polyamorous.
The person I was four years ago, is not the same person who I am now. Which is not a bad thing. This blog has been a journey and it is going to continue to be. I mean there are things I am going to continue to write about which hopefully include reviews, my time on cam and my erotica. But there are also going to be more personal posts about me finding my place in the BDSM community and my own submissive journey as well as I seek to really define it. My being submissive and those parts of me, are as important as the rest of me. But also my journey into non-monogamy as well, as I am only just taking my first steps with that.
I have defined myself many times over the years I have been alive, but I have never taken the time to redefine myself and find myself in this manner. I hope that some of you will continue to stick around with me as I do.
Especially mine it seems.
I ran into a very large down time once again recently, but now is the time that I am kicking myself in the ass here.
Things are going to be under construction and there may even be a name change in the near future. But I wanted to peek my head in and say that I was still very much alive!
