Indigo Does a Year-End Tour!

10 out of 10
Pairs well with champagne to ring in the new year and new experiences!
Hello folx! It is absolutely stunning to see you tune into this bit of delight I call my blog. I’m kicking off my Year-End Tour here at I’m an Adult by creating spreadsheets! One will be an orgasm sheet like the one Kate keeps, and the other will be a spreadsheet of all the toys I have acquired in my life (minus the shitty bullet vibes I bought as a stupid teen. On this post, I want to share my blog stats, and some lovely memories and new ideas from 2017.
This is also my first year as a sex blogger, so let’s talk stats from the year!

  • Number of Sex toy reviews: 38
  • Number of Drink Reviews: 5
  • Number of Educational posts: 18

Traffic Stats

First! What are my tops this year?

Honorable Mentions

The Least Favorites

I don’t want to make this post all lists. But I also didn’t want to leave out the lists. They are so vital to what I love. LISTS ARE AMAZING. So I left them short and sweet, and now that they are out of the way, let’s move on!
My Favorite Bloggers This Year
Girly Juice, A.K.A. Kate Sloan. When I first found Kate’s work, I didn’t really connect with it. She’s very femme and very active with play partners. It also felt like she had a lot of casual-sex-based relationships. If you recall, I was not this way at all until recently. However, as the year has gone on, I’ve changed a lot. I went through a huge break up and learned about my own sexuality. Now, I find myself identifying with her work more and more. I mean this in a lot of ways. Primarily, I love Kate’s style. Her posts have driving points that she uses emotion and fact to get to. As I come into my own style as a blogger, I find that it’s more and more influenced by hers. I especially see our styles coincide in my Situation and Education posts. These posts are usually driven by my need to express emotions and connect with a reader. I feel connected to Kate every time I read her articles. I am delighted to have met her at Woodhull this year, and I cannot wait for whatever she publishes next.
Dangerous Lilly. I had the pleasure of meeting Lilly for the first time at Woodhull this year. I knew of her work and I admired the drive and salt with which she tests materials and makes sure all the toys she recommends are safe. When I had the opportunity to volunteer for an event she was hosting, I jumped on it. (I have since been told that I was extremely helpful, go me.) Since Woodhull, Lilly has been an amazing friend. She is supportive and always has lovely things to say when I’m down. She helped me reach 500 Twitter followers this month, which was my personal goal for the year. I hope that I’ve returned the friendship, and I hope that we continue to get to know one another. I’ve already informed her I’ll be helping next Woodhull, so there’s that. Please visit her for salty (and hilarious) reviews, which I read when I need inspiration to write reviews for less than stellar toys.
Ace in the Hole A.K.A. Taryn. So this year, I had an accidental awkward moment with Taryn when I misunderstood how WordPress uses it’s follow option. I felt like a dope, but Taryn didn’t seem to mind, and for some reason still wanted to be my friend! So now I text her pretty femme things that make me think of her. I also super identify with her writing because I’m also on the ace spectrum! She’s been amazingly supportive and I really hope to continue cultivating a friendship in the new year with her. Her SEO for sex bloggers is an amazing series which I will definitely be reading and examining closer as soon as I fully accept that SEO needs to be a part of my life. Her writing is super amazing, and insightful, so go read it. Also, I regularly laugh at her tweets so hard that I cannot breathe, so please go follow her on twitter. 
Some Goals I Set (and Met) This Year
When I started blogging, it was for fun. I knew it would help my career, but I didn’t expect it to give me a sense of who I am. All of my friends who see the blog love it, and say that it’s very me. I’m proud to tell new people what I do in my spare time, and I’ve learned a lot. It’s affirmed my personality and my priorities in my own mind. This doesn’t even cover all the new friends I’ve made (which I couldn’t possibly cover in a post). I feel like I’ve really reset how I feel about my career and set myself on a path that I really want to be on.
Additionally, I now have over 500 followers on Twitter! I hate social media. I only have one account associated with this blog (Twitter) and I’m not getting any more. I don’t really take photos, and I don’t have more to say, so Instagram and Tumblr are out. I may at some point get a Snapchat for the blog and sell some nudes, but I haven’t been prepared to jump that hurtle yet, so we will see. However, in my first year, over 500 people decided to follow the zany shit I put on the internet, and I’m pleased as punch. Here’s to at least another 500 next year!
This year, I also had one sponsored post. I wrote all about Butt Stuff for Betty’s Toybox. I was really proud to say that my blog brought me some income, and I’m very happy to have teamed with them. I also hope to work with them in the future on more blog posts, so stay tuned!
Goals for Next Year

  • Practice my work with SEO so I can continue to feel growth.
  • Educate more than I review, which is not true right now.
  • Get more sponsored posts. (Companies, if you want to work with me, click here!)
  • Get actually honest-to-goodness sponsored for Woodhull this year.
  • Focus some more on affiliate links and maybe get a pay from those? (I haven’t gotten any yet, and I’m sad about it.)
  • Host at least one giveaway!

I hope you’ve enjoyed something this year (despite it being a horrible trash fire)! I know I have, and I hope to continue my work for many more years. My audience is a lovely perk to what I’m doing on here, and I hope that they continue to get something out of it!
Do you have any things you wish you had seen this year, or wanna see next year? Any resolutions for you/your blog?

Indigo Tries the Tantus Super Soft Vamp

10 out of 10
Would recommend for exploring g-spot stuff and if you enjoy squeezable toys.
Pairs nicely with a Pina Colada. Tasty, sweet and easy-going.

As we all know, I love glass toys. Like, I really love glass toys. But I heard that these Tantus toys were beautifully soft, wrapped in a silky silicone and a lot of good reviews came out about them. As someone who likes really hard toys, I wasn’t convinced I would like this toy. Just so you know: I not only like this toy, I love this toy. I was wondering how my g-spot would respond to something soft, and I’m here to tell you all about it.
Betty’s Toybox kindly sent me this toy to review, after offering me the Vamp or the Destiny. I picked the Vamp because it seemed to gear more towards g-spot stimulation, and because I’m not the biggest fan of testicles on my sex toys. Therefore, the Vamp was the obvious choice for me, but I’m 100% sure the Destiny is great too, because Rose said so.

How, the Vamp doesn’t particularly provide a challenge in any way. The girth is accessible, the length is 7″ (about average for insertables). However, the super soft silicone offers something that I have never felt before: caresses.
You read that right, the Vamp is so soft, that it feels like a gentle caress inside my vagina. Confession corner: it bends so easy that I had to struggle to insert it. However, once it was in, I could feel it gently trying to expand. As I squeezed, it felt it give way and really conform to my body. It’s like…the memory foam of sex toys. I should use it for a pillow.

Ahhhh. The nicest of dreams.

The head of the vamp is 1.7″ according to the information. Being as wide as it is feels so good because it can nudge it’s way (gently) into my g-spot. However, the giving nature means that I don’t feel it pressing into my pubic bone, and it’s practically impossible to hurt myself with it. That’s really exciting because it means that my boyfriend can use this on me without hurting anything (like the Castillo).
In fact, there’s only two negative things I have to say about this toy. For me, I consider about $50 bucks average cost for a body-safe silicone dildo. The Vamp is going to set you back about $70. That’s totally worth it because this is a really great toy for everyone. I think it would work well for beginners, and it was really great for me too, even though it’s the opposite of what I normally like AND I’m not a beginner at all. I do understand $70 is a bit steep though. The good news is that this dildo will last for a long time, and it’s extremely versatile.
The other negative is really a nit-picky thing. It’s just so soft that insertion can be a little tough. You have to relax and really spread it to get it in. Or approach from just the right angle. However, once it’s in there, it’s like fucking a damn cloud.
All in all, this dildo is absolutely stellar and I think everyone should try it out.
