‘Lassies Toast’ Burns Night gin

The one thing I absolutely am not is Scottish. I have plenty of Welsh and Irish blood, but – as far as I know – absolutely zero DNA from north of the border.  Which is probably why my hackles raised when I first saw read about ‘a gin for the lassies’, cos in my head I was all OH MY GOD HOW VERY PATRONISING WTF???  Then obviously I got a grip of myself and realised that it was meant in the traditional way, for Burns night toasts – which I do know a tiny bit about, on account of having worked...

The Queen Bee ‘PulsePlate’ stimulator

No, this is not a bald hairbrush, it is a vibrator. And also no – before you ask, because I know you’re thinking it – you do not push the handle end where the sun don’t shine (nor the bald hairbrush end either, because that would CHAFE).

You know – those ladies with a fixed grimace on their face as they merrily slap themselves silly. You can...

Over to this episode’s Stunt Cock… *** Being the freewheeling sexual spirit that I am, it came as no shock to be asked to test a device promising to deliver rumbling sensations and vibrations from another world.

Tenga are Japanese company who started in 2005 and specialise in masturbatory aids. One of Tenga’s directors, Masanobu...

Bullards Strawberry & Black Pepper Norwich Gin

  Distilled and bottled in Norwich in Bullards own craft distillery, this gin is made using real strawberries, black pepper, lemon peel and cardamon to give a sweet and spicy combination. It is also quite possibly the most delicious and unusual gin you will ever taste. Fresh and light with a taste of properly fresh strawberries (definitely not dried or artificial), it’s the one that we’ve got hidden at the back of the kitchen stash so that undeserving heathens do not waste it and the one that I go for when I’ve had a particularly shitty day and need...

New year, new stationery, new you. Something like that, anyway.

  Oh god I love stationery SO DAMN MUCH. Seriously – every new notebook brings its user closer to the dream of a perfectly organised life, right? Whenever I feel as though the world is going to hell on a jet-ski, I buy a new notebook. And then mostly I put it away and forget I even own it. I have the most ridiculous collection of unused notebooks. It’s like an obsession. The one thing that makes me more likely to actually use a notebook is portability and the availability of different refills – and the Grand Voyageur from Paper...
