Hi, I’m Peep.
Just shy of two years ago, I started a blog to share and explore my love of sex toys.
I love trying them, writing about them, taking fancy photos of them, but more than anything, I love helping people find the sex toys suited to their needs.
When I started Peep’s Scoop, I knew from working on the floor of a sex toy shop that finding the right products can feel difficult, confusing, and sometimes overwhelming.
In this expanded market, how can anyone tell which toys might be right for them?
Peep’s Scoop is a sex toy review blog and essay site designed to guide you through all of that. Here I sort through the good, the bad, and the buzzy of sex toys. I write about my experiences honestly. If I don’t like something I’m gonna tell you. If I love something, you’re going to hear about it. A lot..
But I also know that I have but one set of genitals to give to the world and my experience is but one experience.
For the sake of making sense of how my review might apply to you, you should probably know a bit about me and my body.
I’m short, not quite thin and not quite curvey, and I have no physical disabilities. I got my first vibe when I was 18 and it gave me years of awesome clitoral orgasms, which I can also procure manually without trouble. I’ve never really had issues with making myself come.
I was raised in a radically conservative, predominantly evangelical Christian environment and it took me a long time to come to terms with the fact that my gender and sexuality (queer, femme, often) were not dirty, evil, or inherently “bad.”
I identify as queer because I do not consider the gender of the people I’m attracted to to be the most salient feature of my sexual identity. I came out as a teen and I’ve been relationships with people of all types of genders and orientations, though my current partner is a casual cis-guy.
When it comes to stimulation, I like strong external vibration. I’m not a real fan of internal vibration unless it’s with the right toy. After becoming a reviewer, I fell in love with dildos. I can’t get enough of ’em and I’m always wanting to try new textures and sensations. I prefer girth over length any day of the week. So I review a lot of non-vibrating internal toys.
I’ve also been known to put stuff in my butt from time to time, though my past experiences have made it a bit shy and timid.
I write essays, which tend to be more popular than anything else here on Peep’s Scoop. I’ve written more in depth about why I review toys, explored my own bratty kinks, and tried to take down the myth of the tight pussy. I’ve got opinions about sex and sex toys.
As for me? I’m a semi-anonymous sex blogger and indie scholar/educator. I’ve published stuff on a variety of topics including porn, BDSM, sex toy shops, and pleasure based sex education for smartypants journals like the Communication Review and awesome sex-ed sites like Kinkly. I’ve appeared on sex blogger revolutionary Violet Blue’s Kink Your Kindle Roud up and once I even appeared on Sex City Radio. I’ve presented at the first and second annual Feminist Porn Conference and Catalyst Con. I get around, people.
Peep’s Scoop is about seeking pleasure by opening up sexual exploration.
Living in a culture that assumes sex is both frivolous and completely dangerous at the same time, I’ve dealt with my fair share of sexual shame and guilt. I started this blog not because I think I’ve got it all figured out, but because I wanted to share my experiences of seeking pleasure: of actively going after it and relishing in it.
So, yeah, welcome to Peep’s Scoop, happy exploring!
