Hello, you gorgeous folk! I meant to post this a while back, but I’m a bad blogger (as always) and I’m so many blog posts behind … (Again, as always!)
I received a Twitter notification that literally made me the happiest! In the #Top100SexBloggers2016 I was voted 6th. SIXTH! SIIIIIIXTH?! I couldn’t believe it. Me? My little blog? I’m the first to admit that I never believe I’m “good enough” – not tattooed enough for a tattoo convention, not geeky enough for Comicon, not experienced enough for a vape convention … I suffer with a massive case of the INGE’s – otherwise known as I’m Not Good Enough.
I thought to myself there must have been a mistake here? Surely I couldn’t have come 6th? I mean, that’s in with some of the best sex bloggers that I’ve been following for a number of years, bloggers I actually fan-girl over. I’m in there. I’m in the Top 10. Me?
I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was to come sixth in the list. To read such lovely words about me and my little blog … well, that really was lovely. It made my day. Thank you to @mollysdailykiss for adding me in there, and for judging me so highly. It’s wonderful to think that my blog – my “therapy” – is loved by others. Coz I love it too!
I received a prize for coming sixth – my very own set of nipple sticks from Kink Craft. I’ll be honest … I’d never heard of nipple sticks so for a few moments I had a strange and bemused look on my face. But then I took them to Bear’s house. It turns out he knows exactly how to use them … and not just on my nipples either. I’ll tell you that story another day. You’re going to want to read it.
There are some wonderful sex bloggers on that list and I highly suggest you check it out.
Here’s the Top 10:
I will be absolutely honest with you here when I reordered the list after scoring all the sites I was not in the least bit surprised to find Ferns at the top. She was No.10 on the list last year but in my opinion her rise to the number one spot is well deserved. She has been producing fantastic content for 8+ years and her writing continues to go from strength to strength. To be quite frank not many of us can say that. Even though her kink and mine are the direct opposite of one another her exceptional work always captures my attention and I think that is a huge testament to her writing which is frank, raw, gritty, intelligent and sexy as fuck. I hope you will all join me in congratulating her on the No.1 spot.

As I said last year Lilly is all the things you want in a sex toy reviewer; honest, smart, dedicated, and knowledgeable. Like Ferns she too has been blogging for 8+ years and the quality, quantity and variety of her content is exceptional. If you look back through her blog you will see that she has truly evolved over the years into the blogger she is now who has a genuine passion for what she does and I think that shines through in her work.

I have long been a fan of Rebel’s blog, after all we share a very similar relationship dynamic and so her writing often speaks directly to me but this year she seems to have really blossomed. Her blog is well designed, it looks fantastic and is easy to navigate and both the quantity and quality of her writing is excellent, perhaps even more so when you consider that English is not her first language.

4. Malin James
Malin is an extraordinary, talented writer in my opinion. Her fiction continues to be some of the best around, in fact I would go so far as to say that the erotic fiction on her blog is the best on this list. However she is not just a fiction writer, far from it in fact, her non fiction writing shows a highly self-aware woman who is a deep and intelligent thinker.

Drew’s blog was a new but happy discovery for me on last years list and one I have continued to visit regularly since then. He has a really engaging writing style that draws you in. His kink is pretty much not my kink and yet his writing, a bit like Ferns makes that absolutely irrelevant to me as the reader. Yep, consider me hooked.

6. Not So Sex in the City <- THAT’S ME!
One of my favourite things about compiling this list is finding new blogs to read and when they are as good this one that discovery is even more delicious. I really like her blunt forthright style and the way she writes about things in such an open and honest manner. I have never met this person before but I already find myself rooting for her in her new(ish) relationship. That is the mark of a good blog in my opinion.

Another happy discovery of mine from last years list that has continued to go from strength to strength this year. The design and functionality of his blog is absolutely excellent and I really do like the ‘at a glance summery’ in the form of the little dial that he uses on all his reviews. He is a skilled and thoughtful writer and his blog is always a pleasure to read.

Artist, Photography and author, Tabitha is one very talented lady and as such totally deserves this spot on the list. Her content whilst hugely varied is always of a high standard. She really is one kick arse writer when it comes to short flash fiction and her mixture of drawings and photography create a blog with a really strong visual aspect.

Nlikes pens a blog that is raw, frank and apologetically himself. His writing comes from a place of honest self-awareness and as a result at times can be a challenging read but in my opinion that is exactly what makes this blog such a great one. This is a sex blog with a capital S!

Mrs Fever’s blog is yet another one that I discovered from compiling last years list and damn can this woman write. Her blog is intelligent, sassy, sexy and passionate. She has a style and way with words that just draws you in and in my experience will turn you on even if her kink is not your kink. That is the mark of a great writer.
