I won an affiliate contest from Babeland awhile back, and I am finally able to post my opinion and review of it.
The Ella dildo is the first Lelo product that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing.
Like all of the other Lelo products, Ella is very sleek and extremely well made. She is made of pure silicone which is seamless and very smooth. My Ella arrived in an elegant black box, and a satin draw string bag to store her in.
The Ella is a double ended dildo, one end features a G-Spot “nook”. While using this end, it easily hit just the right spot. I was really surprised that it took very little effort to get me going. The G-spot nook definitely hit where it was designed to. The contour of the dildo was perfect for me, I was able to use it without being in an uncomfortable position. The nook end also works well for some non vibrating clit stimulation.
The other more “traditional” end isn’t quite traditional. It has more of a slightly pointed end, rather than a bulbous head that you see in many other dildos. The point of this end is wonderful for stimulating specific areas such as your perineum.
The Ella cleans up easily with some soap and water, but she may also be cleaned in the dishwasher (no soap), boiled, or with a 10% bleach solution.
Ella’s largest diameter is 1 ¼ inches and is 7 inches long with 5 inches invertible. You can use water based lubricant with her.
I really really enjoy my Ella, and she will always have a place on my nightstand.
So I would like to start doing “Blank of the week posts” I though I would get started with a Toy of the Week
Here is what I am currently lusting after –
You’ll love giving him control of this remote, when he pushes the buttons to turn on seven different functions of vibration and pulsation.
The comfy, non-toxic rubber egg measures 2.5 by 1.5-inches and is easy to insert and remove, so you can keep all those pleasure sensations a secret–if you can keep yourself quiet, that is.
The wireless controller features velvet touch operation.
Made by the master of sex toys Doc Johnson!
This is a basic “rabbit style” cock ring. I was very interested to try it out. I commonly use a vibe during sex, but a cock ring that vibrates sounds like an awesome idea.
To use this, he attempted to put it over his cock and balls, but fit more comfortably with it on his cock only. Once it was on and secure at the base of his cock, he turned it on. I immediately touched him and I could feel the vibrations all through his shaft.
Material / Texture
The Basic Essentials Bunny Enhancer has a jelly like texture, and it is made of TPR. It is really stretchy, I could easily fit this over a soda can. The cock ring has several holes in various places where you can put the bullet vibrator.
It had a slight plastic smell, but like many toys that disappeared after washing it
Shape / Design / Size / Fit
I had high hopes for this ring, but the rabbit just did not hit my clit properly. I had to hold it in place, and that kind of defeats the purpose.
However the ring did fit my lover well, and couldn’t of been simpler to put on or take off. This ring is stretchy enough to not require any lubricant.
Functions / Performance / Controls
The Basic Essentials Bunny Enhancer Cock Ring comes with a tiny bullet vibe. It took me a minute to find the on switch, it is a tiny sliding switch on the side. I would of preferred a button, it is rather difficult to slide the switch over to power it on.
The vibrator only has one speed, and it is a high pitched vibration.
The The Basic Essentials Bunny Enhancer is packaged in a basic plastic clam shell. Batteries were included along with spare set.
easy to put on and take off, decent vibrations, I like that it came with extra batteries
the vibe switch was hard to turn on, it didn’t hit my clit just right
This ring might work for others, as I have a hard time finding toys that hit my clit just right. The vibrations were decent for such a small vibrator. The material is really stretchy and will accommodate men of any size.
This vibrator is really a piece of art, it is beautiful. The grip has swirly designs and the rest is a sleek slightly metallic deep red. It is very smooth and is very aesthetically pleasing.
The Onye Fleur is available in red and purple, I received it in red. The Onye Fleur is 4 1/2 inches long and has a diameter of 1 1/2 inches. It may be inserted, but it is designed to be a clitoral toy. I really like the size of this vibrator, it has just enough length where you can easily grip it, yet it is small enough to be stored discreetly. It also features a rubber band towards the back of the shaft that makes it even easier to hold on to.
The Onye Fleur has a single button control, with 3 speeds. Now I know that it seems that I keep reviewing stronger and stronger vibes, and I do. lol. This baby is TOO STRONG for me. The medium speed is as powerful as some of my other toys highest speeds. When I was using it, I know I could come on the medium speed very easily. But I wanted to try the highest speed. I came almost imediately after changing the speed, but it was soo powerful. The muscles in my thighs, calves and ass all tightened up so tight that it ruined the orgasm. I did come, but it was put to a end very quickly.
The next morning, I tried it again, this time not bothering with highest speed. I really enjoyed myself this time.
Now this toy is not perfect, I do have a few issues. First, the second time I went to use it, it didn’t want to turn on right away. I kept pressing the button and it came on after a few tries. I hope it isn’t a sign of future trouble with it. I will update this post to report any more issues with turning it on in the future. Second, the metallic finish scratches very easily. You should be very, very careful with it, and you shouldn’t get any scratches. I accidentally dropped mine and now its a little scratched.
Other than those two issues, I thoroughly enjoyed the Onye Fleur.
I won a Babeland affiliate’s contest and was able to review a Bend Over Beginner kit from Tantus. It has the benefit of being an all-inclusive package with harness, two dildos, a vibrating bullet (batteries included), and two changeable o-rings. One of the first things I noticed when I opened the kit up was how high quality all the materials were.
I only have a little experience with a strap-on, and this one is so much more comfortable than any other that I have worn. The nylon straps do not dig into your skin and it stays in place. Unlike other strap-ons, this one goes around your legs instead of “thong” style. The harness fits up to a 60-inch waist, so even us curvy girls can have some fun.
The included dildos are 100% pure silicone and can be sterilized. They can be cleaned with a 10% bleach solution, boiled, or even thrown in the dishwasher. They feel very durable and I am sure that I will enjoy them for a long time. The kit includes a smaller dildo, that is a little larger than an average finger at 4 ½ inches long and 7/8 inches in diameter. The larger dildo of the two is 5 ½ inches long and 1 ¼ inches in diameter. My only issue with the dildos is that they are a lint magnet, so you may want to keep them packed away until right before you are ready to use them.
The Bend Over Beginner kit comes with two O rings, a smaller one that fits the included dildos and a larger one so you can use the harness with larger toys. The larger ring fit all of the toys that are designed to be used with another strap-on that I own.
In the harness, there is a little pocket for the bullet vibrator, so you can receive some pleasurable sensations while wearing the harness. The bullet has a simple button to turn it on and off and it can be accessed through the fabric of the harness. The vibe is reasonably strong on its own, but being inside the pocket, really tones down the powerfulness of it. Nonetheless, it is still a nice tease.
The Bend Over Beginner kit is packaged in a simple plastic box, but is sturdy enough for long term storage.
I really love this kit and I am happy that I was able to test it out and review it. If you are in the market for a strap on, you can’t go wrong with the Bend Over Beginner kit.
I was a little skeptical of the Dynamic Duo vibrating X-10 at first, the shape is unlike anything I have owned. But nevertheless, I was excited to try it out. The X-10 can be used vaginally or anally, I only used it vaginally though, if it is used anally, I recommend using the base that it comes with just so it doesn’t get lost or stuck inside.
Material / Texture
Dynamic Duo vibrating X-10 is made of PVC and is very smooth and hard, but between the “beads,” it is flexible. I really like that this toy has no smell whatsoever.
Design / Shape / Size
Although I was unsure of the shape of the X-10, I really enjoyed the stimulation of the beads. The size is just right for me, it is 8 inches long with 6 ¾ inches insertable. The X-10 has a diameter of 1 ¼ inches.
The X-10 has a removable suction cup base, that I tested on various surfaces and it has quite a hold. I also tested the base with a few other toys I have, and it fit most of them.
The size and shape of the X-10 would be good for beginners that want something a little different but not too intimidating.
Functions / Performance / Controls
The X-10’s controls are super simple. A single button on the bottom to turn it on and then alternate through the 3 speeds. I wasn’t expecting this toy to be very powerful, it only takes 2 AAA batteries. But fortunately I was pleasantly surprised. I could of come on the lowest setting, but for reviewing’s sake I tried out all 3 speeds. I came so hard with the X-10 that I was having mini “after shocks” for a few minutes. Even though the X-10 is pretty powerful, it is not noisy. You could probably hear it in the same room if you tried to listen for it, but not through a wall or door.
I also used the X-10 in the shower, and it performed nicely. The flexibility made it easy to use while standing up.
Care and Maintenance
The PVC material of the X-10 is easy to clean with some antibacterial soap and water, however there are a couple grooves where the beads meet the shaft and those are a little harder to clean. The X-10 is compatible with water and silicone based lubricants.
The X-10 arrived in a basic cardboard box, with no instructions. But, the X-10 is simple enough to not need instructions.
Strong vibrations, simple controls, and easy to clean.
Other than the slightly difficult to clean grooves on the beads, I have no cons
The X-10 really did exceed my expectations, it has a comfortable length and girth. The really strong vibrations were an unexpected surprise. The removable suction cup base can make for some interesting position and experiences. The toy is simple to use, but less is definitely more when it comes to this toy.
I was recently sent the Mini Gallant from Babeland to review. This is my first silicone toy, and I believe I am head over heels in love with silicone. The material and construction of this toy are very well made, and it has the highest quality of any toy that I have used to date. I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with it, and it is water-proof!
Okay, so it feels nice, and it looks nice, but does it FEEL nice? Yes yes yes!
The Mini Gallant has seven different vibrating speeds and three different pulsating functions. The way the controls work was a little tricky at first, but I quickly learned how to operate the toy. You hold the + button for a second to turn it on, then you can press it again to go through each speed, once it’s on High, then you hold the + button again for a second to switch to the pulsating functions, then you can press the + button to alternate through those. When you are on the continuous vibrations, you can use the + button to go higher, or the – button to slow the speed down. However, when you are using the pulsating functions, you press the – button to back to the highest vibration speed. To turn the Mini Gallant off, you just hold the – button down for a couple seconds, then it goes to its lowest setting, then you just press the – button once more and it turns off. It’s a nice feature to me because, I can get really worked up on the pulsating vibrations, but I need a more constant vibration to climax, so being able to just press a button once instead of having to alternate though all the speeds is awesome. When I am super close to coming, I want the strong vibrations to finish with.
The Mini Gallant is contoured with ripples and it slightly hooks upwards to stimulate the g-spot, it may be called mini, but it does have a nice thickness of about an inch and a half, and it is about 4 inches long (insertable.) Its small size makes it convenient to store and conceal. The Mini Gallant is made of silicone and hard plastic (the battery department and cap is plastic) and can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and water. Silicone is compatible with any water-based lubricant; however, silicone lubes are not compatible with silicone toys. So if you must use a silicone lube, cover the toy with a condom.
My favorite feature about the Mini Gallant is how quiet it is, I can use in under the blankets, on high with my lover no more than four feet from me, and he cannot hear anything! Well, he can hear me, but not the toy buzzing. This toy is the quietest I have ever seen. I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of a good basic vibrator.
I really appreciate and want to thank Babeland for giving me the opportunity to review their products.
