I am watching the news a lot – always dangerous I know – and have been thinking about all of these people stuck inside in the northern hemisphere during the crisis. Either because they’re in lockdown or quarantine or just taking precautions.
I wanted to do something for everyone because I know money will be tighter for everyone with this crisis going on as well with reduced work – or no work – for many and higher costs as well. That coupled with being stuck inside and wow, not a lot of fun for anyone!
To stop y’all getting too bored during the lock-in or lockdown or quarantine or going crazy with four kids at home, I have reduced the price for all of my Smashwords catalog by 30 percent for a month from today, and have set up a few Amazon deals for the coming month as well (although, these start on the 22nd).
Over the Christmas-New Year break, I did something as a little personal celebration for His Little Earthling‘s release, and to celebrate how the book was doing so well! This was also because I wanted to join legions of people all over the world who have jumped on the ovipositor bandwagon, because hey, who doesn’t need a novelty product that is this unique, right!?
Ovipositors are a sex toy that appear like something between male and female sex organs (as you can see in the photos below) and which ‘ejaculate’ eggs into the person while playing. Since Primal Hardware (the toy company that makes them) has burst onto the scene, I feel like every sex blogger, writer and journalist is talking about them, so I have been curious about ovipositors for a really long time.
After the Ovipositor arrived – it’s actually a model called Splorch on their website – I took it out of the box and mostly just admired it. Splorgy – as the alien ovipositor came to be known to me – was actually really pretty. I was surprised by how pretty. I wanted to touch Splorgy’s skin, to know if Splorgy actually felt as good as others had said.
So I unwrapped Splorgy, unable to really help myself. After poking and prodding at Splorgy’s skin for a little while with my hands which likely weren’t very clean, I decided to give Splorgy a little rub down with some soap and hot water.
When Spology was all clean, I let Splorgy air dry while I continued to admire just how pretty Spology was, and seriously how great Splorgy’s skin felt!
Happily for me too, it was a warm day and Splorgy didn’t take too long to dry…
Now, I had had to prepare for this, which is something that I am not used to doing when I play with sex toys. Although it is usually spontaneous (and not for a review on the blog) you can’t be too spontaneous with this, or, you could, sort of, not really.
To use the ovipositor – which is essentially a little device you use to push eggs into your vagina or butt to make yourself feel full – you had to have the eggs in the first place.
To make the eggs, I went out and got some of this stuff (brand not important):
To purchase my Gelatine Powder I actually had to ask my mum for some help. As in, “where would I buy this stuff?” I guess I could have asked someone at the supermarket because when I told her about it she asked me what I was going to use it for. This was how the discussion went:
Me: I want to buy some gelatine, not jelly [what Australians call jell-o] but gelatine.
Mum: What do you want that for?
Me: Saw a recipe that needed it [not a lie, they send you a recipe to make gelatine eggs with Splorgy]
Mum: What kind of recipe?
Me: A recipe that needed gelatine.
Me, wondering if my mum had an ovipositor of her own and know what I was really up to: Are you going to tell me, or is it a secret?
Mum: A lot of deserts use gelatine powder. Here’s where to find it in the supermarket.
Me, realizing mum probably just wanted to try my cooking and that I was maybe just being a little paranoid thinking she knew what I was really doing: Oh, right. Thanks.
With that awkward interlude over, I took my gelatine and I made me some eggies! Or, I made Splorgy some eggs. I don’t think they’re actually my eggs, I think my alien sex toy is just using me to gestate its tasty desert-y offspring, just saying.
I made two sized eggs, then only used one size. But, the others are in my fridge still, so maybe when I get that hottie drunk tomorrow night he can help me hatch those alien offspring…
The eggs I used were actually quite cute, and fit right in my hand…
Then, of course, the eggie had to go into Splorgy. The first time I tried this I found it fit while using very little lube, but then subsequent times, I found that things ran a lot more smoothly if I used as much lube as I dared. This is the type of play where you can use a heap of lube and not feel like you’re going to drown. Lots of lube is a good thing!
Also, those eggs which I thought – and had read on the website – would melt inside my body, actually took longer than I thought to melt. You could even take one that had been inside you and put it back in the ovipositor for re-insertion if you wanted. Although I would not share these among people. I would use eggs on just the one person, the swap them out for new eggs if more than one person is having them inserted in the one session.
All in all, I don’t know if this type of play was for me, but it was cool to give it a go! I can see people who have serious alien fantasies – which is a number of my readers if His Little Earthling’s sales numbers are anything to go by – or if you just want to feel full, or try something a bit different to spice things up!
I would love to hear more people’s stories about this toy. Especially the funny ones, like mine with the mum conversation. Feel free to comment below or send me a message, my alien sex toy loving friends!
Until next time – Happy Reading!

I received a free toy in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own and I have not received any financial compensation for this review. To purchase you rown ovipositor or check out their other cool toys, head over to the Primal Hardware website.
So, a couple months ago when I was writing His Little Earthling, I had contacted Primal Hardware, the company who makes the famous ovipositor and asked if I could review their toy as a sort of celebration of my alien romance book release – and also because this sounds like the coolest toy ever!
Well, it’s here, and I’m in my kitchen making gelatin eggs… wish me luck!
Some of you have already noticed that earlier this week I added the commission me page to the website. I have had a good response so far, and of course, can always fit new commissions in so don’t hesitate with those emails guys!
For some time I have been receiving emails from people wanting to commission custom stories. At the start, I didn’t quite know what to do then after some time I discovered that this wasn’t uncommon for erotica and romance authors and many would write custom stories between releases for their biggest fans.
When I discovered this, I decided it was something I would have to give a try. The very next time I was approached, I offered to write the story – a hot little spanking tale the reader wanted that would have the main characters have hers and her husband’s names as a gift to him – I offered to write for market rates and she gleefully accepted. I then went to write the thing and was really happy to hear about how it had been a fantastic gift for the lady’s husband.
I have not stopped since.
If you are looking for an author to commission for your naughty erotic stories, you’ve found me! Read a little on my commission page then get in touch. I am always happy to help my readers!
I had to laugh today when a reader sent me a link to an article that HuffPost wrote about people cumming in their sleep without stimulation (“wet dreams”).
I laughed because I had already written about it, only mine was in the first person. Funnily enough too, when I wrote this, I was writing about my own experience – cumming in my sleep without physical stimulation – and in the research phase where I was looking for anyone who had written about women who did this, I came up with nothing.
For anyone who read my medium blog post (don’t forget to clap if you liked it!) and who wants to read more about the science of wet dreams, head on over to HuffPost to hear what they had to say. Yes, they found people to answer the questions I had, with science. Very grateful for that, but also quietly wondering what inspired them to investigate in the first place…
If it’s not a fruitful trip, well, I got to visit one of the best countries in the world and have a wonderful holiday filled with experiences I won’t forget in a hurry. Oh, and I explored different places that will feature in future books for sure.
So here is my letting y’all know I shall be on a hiatus from emails and social for a month. Don’t worry though, because when I am back I will respond to every one!
I loved all the red in the old website design, however, links on the pages didn’t look as good. When you’re blogging about say, how there’s a bunch of free in KU books available for readers, you don’t really want to have your readers squinting at the webpage, unsure exactly where the links are.
There are also pictures at the top of a couple of the pages. I picked them out special because I wanted people to more easily be able to identify which page they were looking at. I know how busy everyone is and if you’re catching up on the news here while also checking out my books in a different tab, I wanted it to be easier than ever!
I have a re-covering coming up tomorrow. The new cover – and books newer, shorter title – is beautiful, I hope you all love it! If y’all like it, I might just get a few more books covers made for some of the older books. My tastes have changed in big ways since I had a lot of the covers made, so we’ll see!
Recently, I had someone who is not on my email newsletter list get in touch with me. They said they didn’t want to sign up for emails but wanted the bonus chapter I was offering as an incentive to sign up for the email newsletter.
When I got the email, I wrote back promptly telling the sender that they could enter their email in the form to receive the incentive, then after they received the bonus chapter, they could click the unsubscribe link. I told them I wouldn’t be offended if they did that, as I know not everyone wants me in their inbox (yes, this is shocking news, please try not to fall off your chairs people!)
We had an email to-and-fro where the sender told me that if this was the case – and it’s honestly not just the case with me, it’s the case with most email newsletters, you can leave at any time – then she didn’t understand why more people didn’t leave because (her words) newsletters don’t offer you anything.
I thanked her for her thoughts and told her I respectfully disagreed.
Email newsletters are awesome. My readers will get heads up about new releases, will get the first offer of a freebie or a giveaway and will hear directly for me in a way that is far more personal than blogging or social.
During the release of Daddy, Boyfriend & Me this month, I sent a personal email to my newsletter recipients detailing a conversation with a friend that had related to writing age play. I also gave newsletter recipients a heads up that due to some sort of mistake, the print version of Daddy, Boyfriend & Me was available right away whereas the pre-order of the ebook would come out on the 21st. It was a bit of a wink-wink, nudge-nudge if you want the book early here’s how to get it. But I only gave my newsletter subscribers that heads up. I didn’t write it on the blog or social. I wanted the people who trust me with their emails and who let me take up precious space in their inbox month after month to have a special sneak peek if that’s what they wanted too.
In the past, the same has been true for when I was looking for people to join my ARC team to receive free books in exchange for honest reviews, when I was hosting a giveaway or when I would be offering a story or book for free (something that almost never happens, but when it does the time is so limited that sending emails means my most loyal readers will be able to nab their copies!).
It can be annoying to get 1000 author emails from authors you hardly know anything about, which is why I try to share little stories and ask my subscribers questions. I want to engage with my readers because it is you who I write for. It is you who supports me so I can keep doing what I love. You support me with your money, but more importantly with your words. I love the tweets and emails I receive more than anything. They keep me going as I have to push through rejection or writers’ block.
This is why I say – and have started to include in the welcome email with the short story or bonus chapter – if you don’t want to hear from me a couple times a month, you don’t have to. You can unsubscribe and follow me wherever you buy ebooks. Ebook retailers can send you a note when something new is out by me if that’s all you want.
So sign up, get your bonus chapter. If you like the emails you receive, stick around. If not, as I say, I won’t be offended if it’s not for you. There are other ways to keep tabs on new releases if that’s all you want for now.
If you’re on my socials you would have seen last week when I posted about Payhip, a website set up so I can sell directly to you guys and pass on the savings as there is no retailer to take their cut. Payhip still does take a share of sales, but their cut is not as high as popular ebook retailers.
I have a store over there that currently has six of my books. There are four older books and two new releases. I will be adding four more books over the next month or so as I take each title out of kindle unlimited (where I have signed an exclusivity agreement) so I can sell directly to you guys as well as putting the books up for sale on the other retailers like Smashwords, Kobo, Apple, B&N, etc. etc. To check out the store so you can buy direct, just click here.
