Episode 4: Porn and Pong, The Sasi, Good Dyke Porn (guest review!), Dacia’s Love Machine and more!

September 26, 2008


Here is what’s in the show this week!
Reviews
Book:Porn & Pong: How Grand Theft Auto, Tomb Raider and other Sexy Games Changed Our Culture by Damon Brown (check out the Porn and Pong website too)
Sex Toy: The Sasi, an exclusive from Babeland. If you shop at babeland.com and type in the code “livegirl” at checkout, you’ll get a 10% discount on whatever you purchase – not just the Sasi.
Smut: Good Dyke Porn – check out the monthly subscription website or you can give the Good Dyke Porn DVD a whirl on Hot Movies for Her, where you can watch each of the eight scenes separately in pay per view format. This is a guest review by Match, who is the founder of the in-development sex positive social news and info site PosAlt and one of the organizers of the second annual Sex 2.0 unconference 2009 – you can also follow Match on Twitter. I figured if I was going to have a guest reviewer I might as well really mix it up and have a guy reviewing lesbian porn.

One Hot Minute
Sex educator Jamye Waxman reminds us that switching it up and experimenting with place & time are great ways to keep sex interesting in a long term relationship.

Bad Press
In response to an email I received asking whether or not it’s any good, I dish about female sexual enhancement lotion Dream Cream.

Self Promotion Moment!
Instead of the traditional Fan Girl Moment, I share a few minutes of my new short film, Dacia’s Love Machine – a comedy about what happens when you try to get rid of a sex machine via Craigslist. There’s a 25 minute long director’s cut of the film that will be available for purchase soon (and will be screening at the Berlin Porn Film Festival next month). If you want to watch or pass along the sneak peek of Dacia’s Love Machine as a stand along piece – it lives on my YouTube channel.

Goodie Giveaways
DVD copy of Madison Young’s Undone (reviewed on Live Girl Review here)
One month subscription to Good Dyke Porn

Episode 3: Open vs Opening Up, Fun Factory’s Delight, Benny Profane’s Hospital, Marisa DiMattia on sex & tattoos… plus more!

September 10, 2008

Yay, its the third episode! Unfortunately, Live Girl Review had a bit of a set back last week – the show has been deleted from iTunes. I think it’s probably because of “strong prevalence of sexual content,” which is listed in their terms of service as a reason shows may not be included. I haven’t gotten a response back from iTunes Abuse – if anyone has suggestions for me, please let me know. It would be a real bummer if the show wasn’t on iTunes.

In less crappy news: the winner of the goodies from the last episode is Baby Sinead, who is a photographer, model, and hell raiser in NYC. Check out her site – her blog is excellent, as are her boobs.

Here what’s in the show this week!
Reviews
Books: Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships by Tristan Taormino (the book has its own community site: Opening Up) vs Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage by Jenny Block (whose website URL I just have to point out because its hilarious: jennyonthepage.com. Ha!)
Sex Toy: Fun Factory’s Delight – buy through this link and type in the code “livegirl” at checkout and you get a 10% discount
Smut Review: Hospital! directed by Benny Profane and featuring Mandy Morbid, Zak Sabbath, and Caroline Pierce

One Hot Minute
Because I reviewed two books about open relationships, Jamye Waxman decided to share a few tips about how to have a happy threesome.

Bad Press
Here’s why you should think twice about a vaginoplasty – put those muscles to work instead!

Fan Girl Moment
I get fan girly on Marisa DiMattia of tattoo couture blog Needled. She talks all about sex and tattoos and the study she’s been doing on the subject – you can read more about the study in her column Erotic Ink over on Suicide Girls.

Goodies!
This episode’s give aways will go to one lucky commenter – not top five or top ten, but anyone who comments before the next episode goes up. The winner will get: a copy of Hospital plus Ellen Forney’s Lust (comics inspired by personal ads).

The next episdoe goes up on September 24!

Thanks for your support!

But of course, that doesn’t mean that I’ll be less honest in my reviews.

Here what’s in the show this week!
Reviews
Book: John Holmes, a Life Measured in Inches
Sex Toy: Sliquid Organics line of lubes
Movie: Erika Lust’s Barcelona Sex Project — that link takes you to Hot Movies for Her, where you can pay per view instead of paying international shipping for the DVD.

One Hot Minute
Sex educator Jamye Waxman gives a tip on how to make a blowjob extra nice with a little help from your fingers.

Bad Press
This episode’s bad press is more an encouragement to be critical of how sex toys are sold and less of a total slam. I share my opinions about the rabbits vibrators, in response to a comment left by Gustav

Fan Girl Moment
I am having fan girl moment over Rachel Kramer Bussel and her new anthology Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica, so as part of her month-long blog tour, I interviewed her about erotica, plus quizzed her on her personal interest in spanking.

Goodies! – comment (with a moderate amount of thoughtfulness!) to win. I’ll pick one of the first TEN commenters as the winner, and you’ll receive the following:
Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica – the latest erotica anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
Kelly Payne’s The Judge’s Chamber – yup, a dvd of spanking smut
A bottle of Sliquid Organics lube

Magma Toys is also making several of their Phoenix vibes, which I reviewed in episode one, available for my viewers. If you’re interested in giving one a try, comment on this post or email me at dacia[2t]livegirlreview.com and tell me in 50 words or less why you’re interested in this toy and what you intend to do with it.

The next long episode goes up on September 10th, but I’ll also be doing a few quickies throughout September.

Again, thanks for all your comments, emails, and iTunes reviews – keep ‘em coming!

Episode 1 – Sex in Crisis, Magma Toys’ Phoenix, Madison Young’s Writers and Rockstars

August 13, 2008

This week, I’m proud to present the new and improved longform Live Girl Review – after seventy episodes, I’m going bigger and longer! And I’ll mention it right up front – I’ll be picking one of the first five commenters on this post to receive a delivery of free goodies! Details below in the list o’ links.

The episode is just under ten minutes long, and in addition to being available as a trusty old video podcast, I’m also producing an audio version, which you can check out at Libsyn and at iTunes as soon as its processed. At the moment, the audio version isn’t any different than the video (um, except the obvious), but in the future I may add longer interviews and such to the audio version.

I’ll be producing two of these long episodes every month, and they’ll go up on the second and fourth Wednesday. I’ll still occasionally produce a quickie episode too. Every marathon episode will feature a book, a movie, and a toy, plus other fun features – like special guest Jamye Waxman!

I’m also going to start adding contributors and text reviews to the site – so if you write reviews on your blog and might be game for cross-posting them here on Live Girl Review, email me at dacia[at]livegirlreview[dot]com.

Here’s what you’ll find in the episode!
Reviews
Book: Dagmar Herzog’s Sex in Crisis: The New Sexual Revolution and the Future of American Politics
Sex Toy: Magma Toys’ Phoenix
Movie: Madison Young’s Writers and Rockstars — you can also see my review of her film Undone here on Live Girl Review

One Hot Minute – new feature!
My good pal sex educator Jamye Waxman is now the sex tip correspondent for Live Girl Review! In this episode, she dishes on deep dicking – or rather, shallow dicking.

Jamye is the author of Getting Off: A Woman’s Guide to Masturbation and host of the Personal Touch video series from Adam and Eve. My review of the first video, Toying With Pleasure was one of the very first videos I did for this site.

Bad Press – new feature!
Highlighting bad things you should avoid! This week’s shame-light (you know, like a bad spotlight?) goes to Vigorect, an “oral gel shooter” to improve erections. Ugh.

Fan Girl Moment – new feature!
I am having fan girl moment over The Wet Spots, and as a special treat, here’s a video of their live performance of the song “Kinky Neighbors.” I also did an episode of Naked City TV about them – you can see it here.

Goodies! – comment (with a moderate amount of thoughtfulness!) to win. I’ll pick one of the first five commenters as the winner, and you’ll receive the following:
Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica – the latest erotica anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
The ultimate couples kit – vibes with multiple attachments
