Erotica: Bowled Over By Ben

I love stripping on stage. I have the audience in the palm of my hand and I’m playing with them, slowly teasing them with the power of suggestion: an item of clothing shed here, a flash of skin there, the hint of a curve revealed, a coquettish smile over a bare shoulder – and I

Toy Review: Best Mains-Powered Wand Vibrators

Never ones to rest on our laurels, we here at Cliterati have gone all out to update our previous Best Mains-Powered Wands (MPW) review, with the result that there are two new Wands sitting pretty in the top two spots. Of course, since our previous number one The Eroscillator is unusual in both approach and

Toy Review: Fun Factory’s Stronic Zwei and Stronic Drei

Having rated the Stronic Eins amongst my Top Twelve Sex Toys of 2012, I was intrigued about manufacturer Fun Factory’s second and third variations on the theme. Stronic meaning ‘strong’ in German, and Eins, Zwei and Drei translating as One, Two and Three respectively, I was interested to see what could be different about a

Review: Sharon Sloane Latex Mini Dress and Latex Leggings, Black Lace brand PVC Open Cup Corset and Pjur Latex Shiners

Being a cage-dancer at The Snake Pit venue in the Glastonbury Festival’s infamous Shangri-La area brings its own set of challenges – not least what to wear. Because when you’re performing in front of an audience of thousands over several nights, and the idea is to entertain as well as titillate, you can’t go at it

Toy Review: Top Three Dildos for Valentine’s Day Gifts 2013

Laid D.1 Stone Dildo There is nothing I don’t like about this item: from the classy eco packaging to the beautiful natural look and feel of the stone, just as Vibrator Kingdom sits comfortably towards the top of my favourite five online adult stores, their Laid D.1 Dildo also features highly in my all-time top five sex toys.

Toy Review: Top Three Vibrator Wands 2013

NB: Click here for a 2015 version of Cliterati’s preferred plug-in wands (which also mentions the items below, so please do read this page too!). The Eroscillator 2 Deluxe The Eroscillator may not be the best-looking sex toy – in fact, I think it’s potentially the ugliest I’ve seen – but it’s got a great personality and a fantastic sense of

Toy Review: Top Three Kinky Valentine’s Day Gifts

Labia Spreader With Stockings If there’s one post that’s been a surprise hit on my irregularvoice blog it’s the review I wrote for this very special hosiery, where stockings are held up by clipping them to the labia rather than a suspender belt. Economical and exceedingly slutty they leave nothing to the imagination – in a

Toy Review: Doc Johnson Jeff Stryker Realistic Cock 10 inch Dildo

I think I’m in love with Doc Johnson’s Jeff Stryker Realistic Dildo. Yes, I know it’s an inanimate object that won’t love me back, but what with the perpetual retro cool trend, surely it’s OK to worship a ten inch rubber cock from the 80s. It isn’t? Well it should be, because Stryker’s cock is

Toy Review: Shiri Zinn Cupcake Vibrator

Having followed designer Shiri Zinn’s career in unpredictable yet highly desirable and utterly fabulous sex toys for some years, it came as no surprise when Zinn’s latest creation was unveiled and proved to be just as enchanting and exquisite as her previous forays into sexy fun. What did come as a surprise was that the

Toy Review: Labia Spreaders with Stockings

Since it’s the time of year to wrap up warm and cover those bare legs, we at Cliterati thought we’d get seasonal and review some hosiery. But not any of your usual M&S tights or hold-ups from Boots which form the staples of many women’s top drawers, oh no: being of a naughty nature we

Film: Diary of A Porn Star – Daisy (Good Girls Go To Heaven, Bad Girls Go To Ibiza)

DAISY TRAILER 2012 from Jump Start Productions on Vimeo. If there’s one thing I learned about the adult film industry from Daisy Rock’s documentary ‘Daisy’ that I didn’t know before, it’s that porn stars like a good smoke. From the edits of this film, you could be led to believe that they’re always chuffing away

Style: Bijou Bedding with Kate Storer

There’s much to be said about decorating a bedroom to reflect your personality, and one of the best things about bed linen is that since it’s temporary you can change it to suit your mood – and your guest! Here are some sexy and stylish covers designed by Kate Storer, who’s been working on her

Bared To You by Sylvia Day

If you’re looking for a well-written erotic novel featuring complex characters and obsessive sex, then Bared To You is your bonkbuster. It’s the first in Sylvia Day’s ‘Crossfire’ series of novels (the second instalment Reflected In You is due out in the autumn), it’s been on the New York Times Bestseller list for ten weeks,

Girl Crush: Missy Elliott

Clearly one of the most talented ladies in the musical world, La Elliott is the closest thing to a bird with bollocks this side of the operating table. Well-respected as a rapper, singer-songwriter and producer, not only is Melissa ‘Missy’ Elliott the only female rapper to have six platinum albums in the US, but she’s

Toys: Alise Vibrator by NS Novelties

If you’re a woman who likes to have your chuff stuffed, leaving your hands free for clitoral stimulation either manually or with another vibrator, then the lovely Alise is for you. We here at Cliterati find that in that situation many vibes are automatically pushed out by our Kegels the minute we get excited, so

Erotica: Straight to Gay

Some people are aware of being attracted to the same sex early on, for others there’s a gradual realisation, and for others still there’s an ever-changing scale of gayness which varies throughout their lives. Me? Well, I’d genuinely never thought about women in that way before I saw Leah, and then it hit me like

BDSM at Ess & Emm

Well, where to start? That’s the issue facing Mr More and myself as we survey our surroundings. We’re at renowned dungeon Ess & Emm, and there’s just so much for us to explore: an extensive array of (deep breath) differing paddles, canes, mitts, clamps, harnesses, cuffs, leather and rubber outfits, high-heeled shoes, blinds, blinkers, gags,

MILF: Andre 3000

If there’s one thing we like here at Cliterati, it’s a man who’s talented enough to embrace his creativity on a multitude of levels – and in Andre ‘Dre’ Benjamin we’ve found a superb Muso We’d Like To… He really is the perfect package (in more ways than one!). Hat-wearing multi-instrumentalist, producer, rapper, singer, artist,

Hot Release: Inside My Love by Delilah

Inside My Love is a lush electronic landscape of breathy vocals and, er, promised orgasms, with boxer-busting lyrics such as “You can see inside me/ Will you come inside me?/ Do you wanna ride me?” leaving very littleto the imagination (except perhaps the invention of X-Ray glasses). However, to dismiss this overt sexuality as mere

Hot Release: Lazy Habits by Lazy Habits

One of the best up-and-coming bands of the festival and big gig circuits is the Lazy Habits. They’ve supported the likes of Mos Def, The Specials and Beardyman, so it’s no surprise to hear they play intelligent hip-hop with a conscience, integrating funk and soul yet still somehow managing to sound contemporary. This isn’t an

Shoe Porn: United Nude – Web Hi

Fashion-forward and structurally groundbreaking, United Nude is one of Cliterati’s favourite footwear brands. The shoes UN make are without parallel in design and form, often defying gravity and material limitations alike. The prices are steep, of course, but the end-of-season sales are often generous, and even at full cost the popular lines and sizes sell

Archive Aural: Who Is He (And What Is He To You)? by Bill Withers

This 1972 Bill Withers track about jealousy is written from the perspective of a cuckolded man. Bill sings of walking down the street with his girl, and being stared down by a man they pass: ‘Ahh, somethin’ in my heart and in your eye/ Tells me he’s not someone just passin’ by….And now when I

Girl Crush: Brody Dalle

Cliterati has serious lady lust for Aussie Brody Dalle (born Bree Pucilowski), raging guitarist and dominant vocalist of now-defunct band The Distillers. It’s not just that she admirably based her stage surname on film actress Béatrice Dalle (Betty Blue being a Cliterati favourite, and its similarly unhinged star Béa an equal attraction). It’s also that
