[Review] Sportsheets Rouge Collar

The Rouge collar is very cute and I love that it is vegan-friendly. I am very disappointed however that it just didn’t fit me. If it had a few more snaps, it might just have worked!

PROSVegan-Friendly, Comfortable

CONSOne size fits ‘most’

The Rouge Collar is one of three vegan-friendly BDSM sets by Sportsheets. The other sets come in Noir (black) and Blush (pink). The Rouge collar comes in red. Unfortunately, the other two collars have been discontinued. 


The collar is made from red faux-leather otherwise known as Polyethylene. it is 19 inches in length with a width of 1 1/4″. It is a little wider than other collars I have worn that have a width of 0.75. It has a snap closure in the back instead of a buckle. I would think snaps would be perfect for those who are just beginning BDSM play or those who find a buckle to be a bit too ‘locked in’. Snaps would allow for quick release in the case of an emergency. On the front of the collar is a D-ring, where bondage restraints or a leash could be clipped to. 

The lining of the collar was very soft and comfortable, I’m not entirely sure what it is made out of but it had the texture and feeling of felt. Both the outer faux-leather and inner lining are stitched together with black thread and there are no visible or loose threads, showing very well craftsmanship and attention to detail. 

Unfortunately, this is a ‘one size fits most’ collar and has no sizing information. So if you have a very thin neck like I do, the collar is going to look very ridiculous. If you’re savvy enough, you could probably add more snaps to make it a more snug fit. 

Care and Feeding 

Polyethylene is a water resistant durable material with a high tensile strength and high resistance to tear, so to clean, you can wash it in warm water with a mild detergent-free soap and a soft cloth. Before storing, make sure it is completely dry. You can store the Rouge Collar in a drawer either snapped or unsnapped. I wouldn’t recommend hiding it in a bag as it may lose its shape. 

Packaging 

The Packaging is very simple. The collar is snapped onto a cardboard insert, just unsnap and slide the collar through the two notches to remove. The packaging is recyclable, so if you have the proper facilities to do so, please recycle! The cardboard insert is fairly discreet as it just says it was made cruelty-free with no animal products used. The collar however is in plain sight so someone is bound to know what this is.

Living Kinky While Disabled

 Many people believe when you’re disabled, you’re done. Broken. Your quality of life sucks and you won’t be able to do anything an able-bodied person can do.
Hi. My name is Kitty, and I’m disabled.
I have Cerebral Palsy, depression, general / social anxiety and autism/sensory issues. I am also high-tone deaf in both ears.
I’m not only disabled, I am kinky.
I am here to put a face on that if you’re disabled, you can still do things an able-bodied person can do, although, a little differently.
I have days where joint pain is crippling. I have days where depression holes me up in bed for two days straight. I have days where my autism refuses to let people near me, the slightest touch is agonizing.

I have times where I forget things like my own name and how old I am.

But that doesn’t slow me down from enjoying my kinky activities.

I still love getting my ass beat to a lovely shade of pink, being lead around on my leash, being bound, bitten, biting, the list goes on.

I’m not involved in my ‘local scene’ because my social anxiety wouldn’t allow that.

Does that mean I’m any less of a kinky person?

No.

You absolutely do not have to part of your local kink community in order to be ‘valid’ as a kinky person.

However if you do, there are plenty of playspaces that are accessible to the disabled, if you’re not sure, it doesn’t hurt to ask the event organizer. Generally they’d be very happy to accommodate you.

I’ve seen people in wheelchairs able to have suspension bondage sessions. If that doesn’t encourage you to continue pursuing your kinky interests then I don’t know what will.

Just remember always to be safe, sane, and above all else, consensual.

I have an ex whom thought my disability was a ‘huge responsibility’ because I still need a bit of assistance and care with everyday things, the relationship of course deteriorated after that and ended completely once he wanted into my pants 2 weeks into it.

The biggest thing to remember is that you are not broken. You still have wants and needs just like any other human being. You’re allowed to be into kink.

Sure it’s a bit harder to find a partner. but trust me, they are out there.

Please DO NOT assume…

[because noone wants to look like an ass. Unless of course, you’re a hot ass.]

I had a message on Tumblr earlier this week asking me if I could “please post photos of me in diapers”.
Since the message wasn’t anonymous, I’ll save the person a little bit of dignity and not post the original here.
Here’s the thing, YES I am an ageplayer and YES I am a littlegirl.
BUT.
I am NOT an Adult Baby/Diaper Lover.
Please please please, Do yourself a favor and ASK the person first if they are into xyz kink/fetish, before just assuming.
Because I AM a littlgirl DOES NOT MEAN:
– I like wearing diapers
– like incest
-have ‘daddy issues’
Yes I KNOW some people out there are into some or all three that I’ve listed, but it does not apply to EVERYONE.  People don’t just lump everyone into one pile, because it’s really impossible to do so with so many unique dynamics and relationships out there.
Also! Because I am a kittygirl, that does NOT mean I’m part of the furry community.
I have friends whom are furries, but I don’t consider myself one nor do I consider myself part of their fandom.
It’s not a matter of disliking furries because like I said, I have friends who are furries, it’s just a matter of me not fitting the bill as a furry.
It also doesn’t mean I’m into bestiality. I don’t have fantasies about fucking/getting fucked by my dog, or any animal for that matter.
Again, please ASK someone before assuming they’re into a certain thing. It isn’t going to offend them or make them angry, worst they’re going to do is go “Eww! No!”
This concludes my rant. Carry on then.

[Review] Original Butterfly Kiss

My overall impression of The Butterfly Kiss is it is a great toy for those just starting out but it’s just a bit too on the small side for me to enjoy. If it was just a little bit longer in the length of the g-spotting shaft I may have liked it a bit more. The butterfly clitoral attachment also seemed to completely miss my clit altogether. This toy is just very frustrating to me and I wouldn’t recommend it to any friends.

PROSSquishy, cute, beginner-friendly

CONSCycling through controls to turn off, noisy, sticky.

INTENSITY: 3 out of 5 [Moderate vibration, good for overall body usage, average in intensity and probably suitable for most individuals.]

NOISE: 2 out of 5 [Low, soft, “white noise” hum, similar to a cell phone’s vibration alert, that can be heard through covers but not through a closed door.]

The Butterfly Kiss is a unique ‘rabbit-style’ vibrator. It is made from smooth, squishy TPR and is body-safe. The total length of the Butterfly Kiss is 7 inches with an insertable length of 3 inches. It has a circumference of 3 3/4 inches and a diameter of 1 1/8 inches. It is unscented, tasteless, and phthalate-free. The toy is smooth throughout, except near the bottom where it is nubby with a heart pattern, which I found was great for gripping when thrusting with this toy. 

This isn’t a toy for ‘size queens’ or those who like their toys girthy. I would definitely recommend this toy to beginners and those who don’t like large toys. The TPR material is smooth and squishy which is also something I would reccomend to a beginning toy user as the Butterfly Kiss will give you some ‘give’ when inserting it. The shaft is very bendy without much effort. 

The Butterfly Kiss is waterproof and features three speeds of vibration. 

The toy is powered by two AAA batteries, which are not included. The controls for the toy are located on the bottom and are simple as pushing a button to turn it on and cycle through the vibrations. You will have to cycle through to turn it off as well which I found to be quite frustrating. I also noticed that instead of a steady cyling, there’s an ‘off’ pause. So click on the first vibration and then click it again and it turns off, click it again for the second, and then off again. 

I also found this toy to go through batteries VERY quickly. 

To load your batteries, just screw off the bottom and there are markings of positive and negative to be able to load the batteries properly. Screw the bottom back on, and you’re ready to go! 

Vrooms & Bees 

This toy is SUPER buzzy. The noise is distracting and also very irritating/annoying. On the upside, this toy can only be heard if you’re in the same room. 

Speed 1: 1 vroom, 1 bee 
Speed 2: 2 vrooms, 2 bees 
Speed 3: 3 vrooms, 2 bees 

Nothing really earth-shattering as far as vrooms since one motor is trying to distribute vibrations through a material that isn’t really vibration receptive to begin with. 

Care & Feeding 

TPR is less porous than cyberskin but more porous than silicone so I recommend using condoms when sharing. TPR toys cannot be disinfected with boiling water. You can wash them with warm water and toy cleaner or mild soap. Because The Butterfly Kiss comes in just a cardboard box and a un-resealable baggie, I would reccomend storing it in the box or in a toy pouch to keep it from attracting dust, lint, hair, etc. 

TPR toys are best used with water-based or silicone-based lubes. 

Packaging 

The Butterfly Kiss comes in a typical cardboard box with pictures of the toy on it, not exactly the most discreet if you’re planning to give this as a gift or are trying to keep your toys away from prying eyes. 

Unfortunately, this toy starts losing more marks with me because I found trying to get it out of the plastic baggie was super difficult as the bag stuck to the toy. The TPR was very sticky and I found it very frustrating to unpackage this toy.
