Editor’s Pick

  • Liberator Axis Hitachi by Carnivalesq
  • Epiphora commented that “the Hitachi takes up like entire vulva,” and therefore wanted to know “if I have to like buttsex to have it work for partner play.” I argue that the Hitachi does not take up the whole vulva, but recognize that I may, in fact, be super human.

    Note: Carnivalesq’s Illustrated Axis Hitachi Positioning Guide is just awesome and you should read it. ‘Nuff said.

Red Diamond Princess Vibe by Evolved Novelties Review

December 8, 2009 16 comments

Babeland sent me the Red Diamond Princess Vibe from Evolved Novelties. I cannot get over how cute this baby is. It is made of hard plastic, it is waterproof and it has sparkly diamond rhinestones on the base.  The size is somewhere between a bullet and a traditional vibrator. The RDPV is four inches long, three inches insertable and one inch in diameter.

The controls are super simple, you just turn the base and more you turn, the stronger the vibrations. The vibrations are not very strong though. They are enough to get you started, but not quite enough to finish.

The Red Diamond Princess Vibe was easy to clean, I used antibacterial soap and water. The RDPV has a smooth texture and no odor from the plastic.

This Vibe can be used internally and externally. However, when using internally please use a condom so it is more easily retrieved if it gets stuck or lost.

Pros: The discreet size, the gift/storage tin that it is packaged in, the cute girlie factor, the fact that is it waterproof

Cons: the not so strong vibrations

I enjoyed using this toy and I am glad I was able to add it to my collection.

Waterproof Purple Pleasure

November 30, 2009 Leave a comment

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.

Packaging

The X-10 arrived in a basic cardboard box, with no instructions. But, the X-10 is simple enough to not need instructions.

Pros

Strong vibrations, simple controls, and easy to clean.

Cons

Other than the slightly difficult to clean grooves on the beads, I have no cons

Summary

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.

Mini Gallant Review

November 16, 2009 14 comments

 

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.

Playtoy’s Love Bullet Review

October 9, 2009 Leave a comment

I am a big fan of bullets, especially ones that are small, discreet and can pack a nice punch. And the Playtoys Love Bullet is all of the above. I was a little skeptical at first, as this bullet’s remote can feel a little “cheap” and I wasn’t sure how strong the vibrations would be. I tend to use bullets in addition to another form of stimulation, usually penetration. So that is how I decided to try this one out. During the initial testing of the bullet we tried it without any lube, but I recommend adding just a little to it, it will make it slide around much easier. After a little bit of teasing with the bullet we took a little break from it. After a few minutes my lover grabbed it again and held it directly onto my clit, he started with the speed down low, and then worked his way to high. I came very quickly once it was on high.

Material / Texture
Like I mentioned before, the plastic remote felt a bit cheap and lightweight, but after adding the batteries it felt nicer in my hand. It is all hard plastic, except the cord which is covered in soft plastic. The bullet and the remote both have a smooth “velvety” texture.

Design / Shape / Size
The design of the bullet is fairy simple. The bullet is 2 1/4 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide. The cord had a nice length of 31 inches, which I find nice for partnered play. I feel the remote could be a little smaller, as it might feel too big with someone with smaller hands.

Because of its simplicity, I think it would make a great beginner’s toy, or a nice addition to anyone’s collection.

Functions / Performance / Controls
The controls on this are super simple, it is a slider control, the more you slide the button, the stronger the vibrations. You just slide it all the way down to turn it off.  The vibrations are fairly quiet, on high you can hear it if you are in the same room. But I can’t imagine anyone being able to hear it through a wall or a closed door.

Care and Maintenance
Since this is not a waterproof toy, I do not submerge it in water. I clean it with a dampened towel and some anti-bacterial soap. Just make sure to get all of the soap residue off. You can also use a 10% bleach solution and wipe it down with that and let it air dry. Hard plastic is compatible any waterbased, oil, or silicone lubricant.
Packaging
The packaging for this wasn’t anything fancy, just the basic clear plastic “clam shell” package. It was very easy to open though, which is always a plus for me. When I get a new toy, I just want to open it and check it out.

You could store the Playtoy’s Love Bullet in the original packaging if you wanted to, but I just added it to my bag of toys.
The Playtoy’s Love Bullet is free from phthalates and latex.

If you use this or any bullet internally, I suggest you use a condom with it. When you remove the bullet, pull the condom not the cord. Pulling bullets out using the cord, will greatly decrease their life-span.

Fusion Duality from Evolved Novelties Review

October 3, 2009 12 comments




The awesome people from Babeland sent me the Fusion Duality from Evolved Novelties. One of the best things about this toy is, it is actually two toys in one! Each end of the Fusion Duality has two independently vibrating heads: one with a hook that’s perfect for stimulating the G-spot (or prostate) (5″ insertable), the other contoured with exciting bumps and ridges (3″ insertable). With the two motors, there are 16 different combinations of speeds and vibrations. But best of all this baby is waterproof! The Fusion Duality is fairy quiet, but packs a decent punch. You couldn’t hear it being used if you are not in the room.

The Fusion Duality has a nice, almost “etched” texture, but it is really smooth and has a nice weight to it. I like my toys to feel “solid” and sturdy and this one definitely does. I simply adore the way it feels in my hands. It has a nice thickness, it is about an inch and a half thick and at ten and a half inches long, it is easy to grip. One one side, there is a hook that is designed to stimulate the g-spot, and a little nub to hit the clit, but the nub didn’t quite hit mine. On the hook end, the controls have 3 different vibrating speeds. The controls are 2 simple buttons, one for each end. You just press the button to turn it on and then again to navigate through the speeds or patterns. On the opposite side, the curvy, bulbous end ,the motor vibrates different patterns. These patterns are wonderful, I greatly enjoyed everyone one of them. My first time using this, I chose to try it in the bathtub, and while the sparks didn’t fly in there, it was the small bathtub’s fault. Once I got out and continued in the bedroom, things started heating up quickly. I came twice and called it a night.

The only con about it is if you are using both motors at the same time, it is rather difficult to turn off. You have to cycle through all the speeds and vibrations to turn it off and sometimes it is confusing which end is actually on, especially if you happened to be in a hurry to turn it off. I wouldn’t recommend using this where there is a chance you may be disturbed or caught. (well unless that is what you are hoping for).

The Fusion Duality is made of ABS plastic and does not contain phthalates. It is easy to clean with soap and water. I store mine in the nifty box that it came in. It is a rectangular aluminum box, with a black velvet inside. It looks nice and it is convenient.

I definitely enjoy this toy and recommend it as a nice addition to any collection.
