The Ruby Glow

Every now and again, a toy comes on to the market that excites, impresses me and warrants a blog post to dedicate to it. It’s the toys that have something completely different about them that appeal to me and make me proud to be in this business.

Ruby Glow is one of these toys. It came out earlier this year and I was wowed by it straight away and I’m gutted that I haven’t made the time to write about it yet. Not long after coming out, it was nominated for “Most Innovative New Product 2016” at the ETO awards – the industry awards. It also won “Most Innovative New Toy 2016” at the Sign Magazine’s awards.

Ruby Glow was invented by Tabitha Rayne, an erotica writer and blogger (and now inventor!). Even when somebody is used to writing erotica, it can still, as you can imagine, still get one a bit hot and bothered every now and again! This was the original premise of the Ruby Glow – to provide some physical pleasure whilst typing erotica, but it has now become so much more than this.

The basics of the Ruby Glow is that it is a vibrator that you can sit on – with or without clothes. It is saddle shaped with a soft bump on either side, one ribbed, one smooth – each side has a motor in it. You can put both motors on, or one or the other, all depending on what you fancy. It has 10 different vibration settings in both motors. The buttons are at the front of the toy, so when you are sat on it, you can change the vibration modes if you want. You could have one motor giving you one sensation whilst the other motor gives you a different one. Party! It is made from silicone, the healthiest material for sex toys and it only requires 2 AAA batteries. It isn’t fully waterproof so don’t submerge, but it is splash proof so can be washed easily.

As this is a toy that you can sit on, imagine how good it is for people who can’t use their hands or wrists properly, or have limited mobility. The Ruby Glow has made it possible for people who can’t use a lot of vibrators… to use!

So if you don’t have functioning arms, if you are a wheelchair user, if you have aches and pains, this toy is the answer to your ‘prayers’.

If you are a fully able person who can use any toy they want, here is the perk for you – you can watch porn when you’re sat on this. You can read erotica sat on it. You can even pop it on the couch when you get home from work and sit down for a bit whilst you are catching up with social media or your recording of Home and Away. It doesn’t have to be your main focus when you are using it. It can just be a little pleasurable feeling to help you relax and smile for a bit! (I could be sat on one right now!) Imagine how fabulous this would be for sexy Skype times with your long distance lover.

You could use the Ruby Glow with your partner too. Imagine you are a woman sat on a chair wearing  strap-on, your female or male partner is straddling you so you’re not only getting the pleasure from her/him riding you, but also you’re getting some vibrations on your clit, perineum and/or vaginal entrance – you’re adding layers to your pleasure.

You could use this for a power play scenario too, get your partner to sit on it and control what she feels.
If you’re a woman giving oral sex, you could position yourself so that you are getting some ‘Ruby Glow pleasure’. The possibilities are endless!

The Good Housekeeping guide rated it number 2 in their vibrator reviews earlier this year.

It also appeared on Good Morning by Tracey Cox!

I really do take my hat off to Tabitha Rayne for inventing this toy and to Rocks Off for working with her on making this toy a reality. The Best of Britain! This is a bloody brilliant toy and I recommend you get this for any friends that may have arthritis or limited mobility. For what it is, it’s a great price and also comes with a 6-month warranty.

Now don’t delay, give it a go!

For American/Californian Readers, and it’s not about Trump!

This post is for anybody who lives in or knows somebody who lives in California. I would love it if you could share this post to make everybody aware of how misleading Proposition 60 is and to vote against it.

I listen to quite a few sex podcasts and most of them are America-based. Something that they have all been discussing for the last few weeks is Proposition 60. This is a California-focussed proposition and the whole sex worker community is against it and is urging everybody to vote against it. It sounds good to begin with – to make sure that condoms are worn in all pornography, but as soon as you dig beneath the surface, it becomes ridiculous. Something that makes me very uncomfortable is the fact that if this is voted through, no pornstar’s life will be private, and anybody could get their address if they wanted. How invasive is that? There is more to it than that, but for me, this is what worries me the most.

The guests that all of the podcasts have been talking to about this are all intelligent and informed sex workers who have been in the industry for years and who can see how much this will change the face of porn, in a bad way!

To read more about it and find out how absurd it is, go to this website and also download the most recent episodes of The Whorecast to listen to discussions between sex workers about the impact this couldhave on their lives

There are 3 days until the vote so share this ASAP!
