- What made you decide to write a sex blog?
I kind of wandered into it via my reviewing. I’ve always been very open about my sex life and never suffered any sexual shame. I loved reviewing for Cara Sutras Pleasure Panel but began to want somewhere to house my own content too. I’m immensely proud of my site; it’s my baby.
- What’s behind the title of your blog or your blogging “name”?
Lol this goes back years. My blog is named after my online AKA which for years was Candysnatch – I was christened this by my friend Jack. We were having a bantery argument on Twitter and I called him “posh boy” to which he replied “you can shut it Candy Snatch” in reference to the candy tattoos which cover me. I changed my user name and Candy has been my AKA since.
- Describe your blog in a nutshell:
My blog is a mix of reviews of sex toys, erotica, lingerie and other sexual accessories. I also write posts about a range of subjects from little rants about personal peeves to anecdotal accounts of important sexual moments and personal musings. I think it’s quite eclectic and that’s a bit like me – so I love that.
- How long have you been blogging on this theme?
Erm. I think it must be about 18 months now, which has gone so fast it’s unreal – and I have loved and learnt from every minute.
- What is your favourite type of adult toy?
Wow this is a hard one. Lately I’m all about the dildos and two of my favourites have been the Fun Factory Boss and the Blush Novelties Avant D4 Dildo in Sexy in Pink. However if you’re talking go-to mine is always either the Satisfyer Pro 2 or the Womanizer Pro. These never leave my bedside and I alternate them; They’re just consistently good.
- If you were sent to a desert island (with no power issues) name the 1 adult toy you’d take with you:
The Womanizer Pro. I could quite happily lay on the sand enjoying that baby under the sun all day long.
- What’s your current sexuality? At what age did you realise this was the right ‘fit’ for you?
Hmmm this is a difficult one. I suppose I’m bisexual but, as I’ve recently said on Twitter, I now think I’m probably more pan sexual as it’s the energy of someone I’m attracted to rather than their gender or sexuality. These things are irrelevant when there’s chemistry there.
I can’t ever remember not knowing this was how I was. I was as attracted to Wonder Woman as a child as I was the Dukes of Hazzard. So it’s just always been part of me. But I really hate labels and I think that sometimes we feel like we’ve GOT to label something to understand it. To me it’s just a form of pigeon holing and is actually quite repressive. “Oh you’re this so therefore you must do that.” Rubbish. I’ll do what I want when I feel like it. So I’ve decided I’m a Candy sexual because nobody can define me but myself.
- What’s your preference – naked or “dressed up” for sex? If dressed up, how so?
Ooooh dressed up! I love to pretty up for sex just so my partner can wreck it all lol. I love lingerie and have an entire rail of it in my bedroom. I favour corsets, basques and camis. Always must have suspenders because I’m a huge stocking fan. They say you eat a meal with your eyes first and I strongly apply this to sex too. Plus getting ready is a LOT of fun.
- Is there a kink or fantasy you’re yearning to try?
Hmmm I don’t think there IS! I think everything I’ve wanted to try, I have, so I’m quite lucky. In terms of a fantasy I’ve always had this thing about being fucked against a large plate glass window above a busy London street. I’ve never been in a situation with a window big enough alas. But OMG yeah – that pushes all my exhibitionistic buttons.
- Name the fictional being or species you’d most like to have an encounter with:
Fictional species? Well it’s gotta be a Unicorn or My Little Pony hahaha! OMG I would love that so much. Spend a day with a My Little Pony! This should be a thing!
If you mean a fictional character, then one of my all time favourite books is Glass Books of the Dreameaters by G W Dahlquist. So I would love to spend an afternoon with the formidable Miss Temple and take an elegant afternoon tea whilst discussing her adventures.
- Anal sex – Meh or Yay?
- Sex needn’t always be serious – do you have a funny moment to share?
I was once having some pretty hot sex in a car parked in a layby. A cyclist went past and gave my partner the thumbs up lol. That made me laugh. Other than that I once made my ex fiance bleed with a spiky necklace and a tit wank. Well I found it funny. Him not so much.
- Sexting – love it or hate it?
Loooooooove it! So much! It’s the best way to build anticipation to getting your hands on someone and can hugely improve an otherwise crappy day.
- Which mainstream film depicts your favourite erotic scene?
None to be honest. I’m not a fan of movie erotica. It’s mostly rubbish or implied.
- Do you watch porn?
Yes I certainly do. I’ve always had a massive porn habit. I like to watch it with partners as well as on my own. I go through phases of what I watch.
- Nominate your favourite adult film:
I literally don’t have one.
- Before you go, please tell us 1 adult blog (aside from yours) which we must add to our reading list:
One? OMG there are so many! I spend hours scouring my fellow bloggers sites. I love Ella Scandal’s blog because she’s such a skilled writer. Her reviews make me laugh and nod. And her erotica. Wow! I keep saying it but someone give this girl her own book. I will forever be her biggest fan and she’s an absolute diamond of a person too. I’m lucky to call her my friend.
Thank you so much for sharing your more ‘private’ side with me and my Dark Darlings!
