Can you believe it? We’ve been blogging for two years this month, and the time has completely flown by. And what a lot we have achieved over the past 12 months.
Back in October, we came in at No.11 in the Kinkly Top 100 Sex Blogging Superheros (a massive jump from the No.93 we were in 2014). We were No.2 for sex toy reviews AND… we were voted No.1 in blogs written by/for men. We’re averaging over 50,000 visitors a month – a far cry from the 100-odd average we got in our first few months. I am still shocked and humbled by how well we have done, and I am still sat here, scratching my head – trying to work out exactly what it is that we’re doing right – but I hope that we can keep going strong for another 2 years (and many more beyond!).
I owe all of this to you guys – the readers who come back and read our reviews and insane ramblings. To all those who follow us on Twitter and Tumblr… You are amazing. So how can I thank you? By hooking you up with some seriously sexy prizes! And this year, I am offering a small bundle of products I have curated myself, and will be shipping those off to one lucky winner (however, this means that particular prize will only be open to UK residents – but we still have PLENTY of prizes available for everyone else).
Before we get onto the prizes and the sponsors, there are a few giveaway ground rules:
- The competition opens at midnight on Wednesday 18th May and closes at midnight on Wednesday 1st June 2016.
- The winners will have 72 hours after being contacted by email, to confirm their details in order for the prizes to be shipped. If you do not respond, another winner will be chosen.
- You are allowed to enter for all the prizes you would like to win, however you can only win ONE prize. So think carefully about what you REALLY want!
- Some prizes will be restricted to specific regions. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION! Entries will be disqualified if you have not met the specific criteria (and I will be checking!).
- By entering the competition, you confirm you are at least 18 years old.
- Unless stated, our sponsors have agreed to be responsible for shipping these items. If there are any problems, please contact me directly, and I will do all I can to resolve any issues directly. Once a prize has been shipped, The Big Gay Review will not be held responsible for any possible customs charges that may incur from importing a prize.
- Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the information provided has been accurate, if for any reason we are no longer able to offer a prize after a winner has been chosen, then we will contact you and try to arrange a suitable alternative.
That should just about cover everything. Please remember, these giveaways are hosted at the discretion of both the bloggers and the companies involved. We don’t have to do giveaways, so please be respectful of the rules, and should anything go wrong, we will do our best to ensure a speedy resolve – but please remember, we do this off our own backs!

They have offered up a TENGA Cool Egg Edition. Featuring TENGA’s cool lubricant inside, prepare yourself for a tingling thrill as you wrap this cute little masturbator round your member.

Tantus are a fabulous company, who specialise in crafting body safe dildos, butt plugs and all other manner of sexy goodness. Their dual-density line up of dildos is just INCREDIBLE – we are massive fans of them over here at The Big Gay Review. Which is why I am really excited that we can offer a lucky winner the SAM O2 Dual Density Realistic Dildo! It comes with a suction cup and a bullet vibrator for versatile fun.
This prize is open worldwide. Tantus will be responsible for shipping this prize.
She-Vibe are a new company into the roster of companies we work with, and I really don’t know why I’ve waited this long to actually work with them. They offer a huge selection of products at extremely competitive prices and ship to Canada, USA, UK and Australia! They have kindly offered up a PULSE II Solo! We reviewed the PULSE II DUO and we LOVED IT! In terms of function, it works the same as the DUO, it just doesn’t have the second motor or remote control. But the basic functions are the same.
This prize is open to UK,CA,US and AU Residents. She-vibe will be responsible for shipping this prize.
Crowned Jewels are a UK based company who craft beautiful dildos and plugs made from Aluminium, Platinum and Titanium. Last year, they sent me the Eros Grande Aluminium dildo – and I was besotted. Everything was just beautiful – from the dildo, right down the gorgeous packaging. A lot of effort has gone in to ensuring your entire experience with Crowned Jewels is as luxurious as possible. They have offered up a Mayfair ‘S’ Curve Grande Aluminium dildo. Measuring 8.25″ in length, with a max diameter of 1.35″. It’s perfect for G-Spot/P-Spot stimulation.
This prize is open worldwide. Crowned Jewels will be responsible for shipping this prize.
The last prize on offer comes from Godemiche. This relatively new UK company have made a bit of a name for themselves, crafting cute and sometimes quirky silicone dildos and butt plugs. We tried out their signature ADAM dildo in this gorgeously quirky ‘QUBE’ design – and I absolutely loved it. And they are reasonably priced too! It’s finally great to have a UK company producing fabulous silicone products. On offer here is a signature ADAM dildo in a gorgeous blue pearl colour.
This prize is open worldwide. Godemiche will be responsible for shipping this prize.
And there we have it! I think there are some pretty good prizes up for grabs here. Please remember to respect and follow the rules and guidelines! I have also decided that for this giveaway, I will not be incorporating a ‘daily entry’ option by tweeting etc. I think we can all agree, having our timelines bombarded with competition tweets can be really annoying – I also wanted to make sure that the competitions were as fair as possible – so by offering a finite number of entries, everyone stands a good and equal chance of winning. Again, hopefully this is OK with you guys – and if not, well tough!
GOOD LUCK everyone – remember, you can enter for all the prizes, but you will only win ONE of them! Also, please visit our sponsors, follow them on twitter etc – this wouldn’t be possible without them and don’t forget, if you want to continue to support the work that we do, please consider using the affiliate links around the blog to make your purchases. They don’t cost you any more and we just get a small commission which goes towards maintaining the blog. Thank you in advance!
And in the immortal words of the supermodel of the world… GOOD LUCK and…
