Greek Goddess of "universal remedy"

I've written before (on multiple occasions) about a Tantus, a company who makes top quality adult products that are manufactured here in the US.  Back around the first of this year, I even wrote a post suggesting one of their "objets de plaisir" to my dear friend Cherub, when she asked me for a product recommendation.

Far too many sex toys are made in China, where a repressive regime not only has a general lack of environmental and health/safety regulations, filters the internet to prevent it's citizens from reading unapproved news and information, but also where the forced labor of political and religious prisoners plays an essential role in the manufacturing economy.

That's not the case with Tantus, who manufacturers their toys right here in the US.  They pay their employees a living wage, and are very much responsible and enlightened members of the community where their products are manufactured.

One of the other great things about Tantus is their very progressive attitude towards not only towards the health and safety of their customers, but also towards their community. Hallelujah!

I guess it should be obvious by now that I heartily endorse Tantus and their products.  I've put my money where my mouth is on this topic, it's reflected in my toybag. The majority of insertable adult plugs and silicone dildos in my collection were manufactured by Tantus.

That's why I'm excited to post today about the Panacea Vibrator, a limited edition adult toy being used as a tool to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  Although we don't really need another insertable toy in our collection, I've ordered one for the Samadhi toybag, primarily to support the company and the cause.

To provide you with all the details, here's the Tantus news release:
Tantus offers a "Panacea" in the fight against cancer

Sparks, NV -- The Tantus Panacea, available only as a Limited Edition on the Tantus website, was created as part of Tantus' participation in the 2012 Relay for Life fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Panacea will go to the American Cancer Society. The Panacea is modeled on the classic Tantus Goddess Vibe, with an updated dual-color look. Due to the production process, no two toys are exactly alike. The Panacea is the perfect toy for the serious Tantus collector, those new to adult toys, and anyone who wants to support the fight against cancer.

"Relay for Life is vitally important to the staff here at Tantus," said Jenna Clark, Marketing Manager. "We're a small company, and the employees are a tight-knit group. We know each other's families and histories. We have survivors on staff, and relatives who have been diagnosed. Putting company energy into this initiative fit our core values perfectly. At heart, the staff at Tantus is a family and giving back to the community is a part of who we are."

All Tantus Toys are made from Tantus' own unique blend of Ultra-Premium Silicone. The superior quality of Tantus silicone makes all Tantus Toys hypoallergenic, non-toxic, phthalate free, heavy metal free, odorless, boilable, bleachable and even dishwasher safe. These factors combined make Tantus Toys the safest and most pleasurable toys on the market. A toy from Tantus is meant to be used and with minimal care Tantus Toys can last a lifetime.
Once again, I'd like to applaud Tantus for being an enlightened company, and for making outstanding products.  I'd also like to thank them for the opportunity to be a part of their contribution to the American Cancer Society.

Finally, I'd like to applaud Jenna Clark, who is Marketing Manager at Tantus.  I exchanged several emails with Jenna a few months back when I first wrote about Tantus.  She's a delightful individual, and the only reason I didn't keep in better touch was because I didn't wish to burden her already heavy workload.

I was very pleased to learn that she's intimately involved with this charity effort by Tantus, but taken aback and very saddened to discover that she has a very personal reason inspiring her involvement . . .

"Navigating my daughter's cancer treatment was the hardest thing I've ever done. And I never would have gotten through it without the kindness of friends, family, and employers. I was also humbled by the help we got from people who didn't even know us - total strangers who made it possible for me to focus on her treatment. I wish I could thank them, even now."
--J. Clark
Tantus, Inc.
Jenna and her daughter will be in our prayers tonight, as will be all cancer victims and survivors.  Whether you support this fundraiser, or whether you find a different way to help the cause, please give time and/or financial assistance to the fight against cancer.

Cancer touches far too many lives . . .

Slippery When Wet - Gags & Drooling

Welcome to an ongoing discussion of gags and gagging in the world of BDSM.  Today, I'll be featuring an inevitable consequence of being gagged, as well as the fetish some have for this special aspect of keeping her quiet.

And, it should be said that today's post is a very slippery topic.  It could even be said that it's discussion occurs on a slippery slope, as folks tend to either love or hate the fact that gags can cause uncontrollable drooling.

Duct Tape Gags (keeping her quiet pt. 1)

An essential part of any abduction or damsel in distress scenario, nothing screams enforced submission better than the image of a submissive who has been bound and gagged.  Welcome to the first installment of "keeping her quiet", an ongoing discussion about gags and gagging in BDSM.

I'd first like to note, for you my dear reader, that the title "keeping her quiet" is not intended to be sexist in any way.  Please understand that any observations or advice I give are almost always equally applicable to gags used upon a male submissive.  My choice of a female pronoun is not intended to imply that female submissives, nor women in general, should be gagged or stifled from expressing themselves.  This is about the use of gags for BDSM scenes, not life in general.

The articles on gags are intended to be pansexual.  My original working title for this series of postings was actually "keeping them quiet".  While that's a more politically correct title, and…
