Clitty Cat Vibrating Dildo

Early To Bed is a great sex shop in Chicago. Oh, if only they were closer! They have this awesome practice of using sex bloggers as guinea pigs for sex toys they are considering carrying. Excellent use of resources on their part! They were kind enough to send me this crazy looking vibrator, the Clitty Cat.

Let me rephrase. The Clitty Cat is really more of a vibrating dildo than a vibrator. It is a silicone, rabbit-style dildo with a vibrating bullet that inserts into one end. The odd shape and festive color bring to mind Fun Factory toys and you all know how much I love them. What’s interesting (what isn’t?) about this vibrating dildo is the removable bullet. Without the bullet you’ve got a funky-shaped g-spot dildo. As soon as you put the bullet snug into its hole, you’ve turned your dildo into a rabbit-style vibrator.

As the Clitty Cat is 100% silicone, you can easily clean it with antibacterial soap and water, your favorite toy cleaner, or an 10% bleach solution. Removing the bullet makes the Clitty Cat 100% waterproof and provides the additional options of boiling it for sterilization purposes or throwing in the top shelf of your dishwasher (remember not to use soap). That makes this sex toy even more flexible.

Since the Clitty Cat is silicone, be sure to use water-based lubricant only. Silicone-based lubes can react chemically with silicone toys and cause a very unpleasant reaction. No one wants to see their new dildo melt away in a puddle of silicone. For the same reason, use caution when storing your Clitty Cat. It’s best to keep it from touching other silicone toys and toys made of low quality materials. Again, to touch is to risk a nasty chemical reaction. Silicone can be temperamental this way but it’s worth the trouble.

Silicone is a great material for insertable sex toys because it’s latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. As we’ve already discussed silicone can be easily cleaned and even sterilized so it’s safe to share between partners.

The Clitty Cat’s comes in clear plastic packaging that is not at all discreet. Leave it laying around and someone will either guess what it is or give it to your dog, assuming it’s his new chew toy. Potentially dangerous either way. It comes with a teeny tiny pink plastic gem that fits it the front of the plastic clamshell. I’m truly not sure of its purpose. Am I expected to set it in my tooth? My navel, perhaps? Is it a body jewel or packaging decoration? I’m going with body jewel but I have not used it to adorn my body. I’m afraid if I remove it from the packaging I’ll drop it and forever be stepping on its pokiness in my carpeting. As indiscreet and bulky as the packaging is, it is sturdy enough to store the Clitty Cat and is currently serving that purpose for me. I don’t have any cool storage bags at the moment, ok? Don’t judge.

One thing I love about the Clitty Cat is that it comes with the necessary AAA battery! I’m always saying I believe all toys that require batteries should come with them. Yay for one that does! Though it’s an off-brand battery it works just as well as the batteries I normally use.

At 6 3/4″long from tip to tip, with 4″being insertable, the Clitty Cat is almost 1 1/2″ wide. It is raspberry in color, with a stylized appearance and a pronounced “head”. It’s very bendy and has no odor or taste. The Clitty Cat has this fabulous little hooking curve that hits my g-spot just perfectly and the clit bit lines up very well with my clit. It has a handle that is comfortable and easy to hold, and the silicone is super flexible and great for thrusting against my g-spot. The vibrations hit my g-spot well and travel slightly through the silicone to my clit, though I’d prefer a separate clit bullet with greater power. The vibrations are buzzy enough that I would not use the bullet on its own against my clit. This is slightly disappointing, but it is a small bullet, and as it works well in the dildo I forgive it its trespasses. Though it’s a bit overly curved for my bottom, the sterilizable silicone and its smaller size make the Clitty Cat a good candidate for anal play. It’s made by PHS International under the name of Sex Kitten and is manufactured in China.

Clitty Cat Pros:
– Great fit for my body
– Silicone
– Waterproof
– Comes with battery

Clitty Cat Cons:
– Buzzy and weak vibrations
– Bullet isn’t waterproof

While the Clitty Cat may not be the strongest vibrator on the block, it’s perfect fit more than makes up for that. The fact that it’s silicone, great for thrusting, the body can be sterilized, and it’s funky looking only add to its charm. If you want a powerhouse, look elsewhere. As a vibrating rabbit-like, g-spot dildo that is fun to play with and easy to clean, Clitty Cat works great for me.

Octopussy Glass Dildo

Remember way back when I did a Spotlight on the Octopussy? It had just come out and Babeland had it in stock. It immediately captured my attention and I continued to lust after it all this time. Well thanks to Babeland, I finally have the chance to review it.

I don’t actually have a tentacle fetish at all, but I fell in love with the Octopussy when I saw it online at Babeland. Seeing it in person is something else. It is even more beautiful! I am so enamored with my Octopussy.

Made of light pink borosillicate glass, it resembles something between a serpent’s tongue and very short, flattened octopus arm. Or leg. I kinda like to think of it as a giant tongue doing naughty things to my nether regions. The Octopussy has these amazing bumps on the top surface that rub up against my clit and massage my labia in the loveliest way. It also has rather thick vein-like protrusions on the underside of the tongue/tentacle and a deep groove down the middle of the top surface.

The Octopussy, which happens to be No 24 in the Pipedreams Icicles line (a beautiful line of high quality glass sex toys) is 6 1/4″ long, with 4 1/2″ insertable, and 1 1/2″ in diameter. Its base wraps around to form a curled handle which makes it very easy to hold onto and thrust with the Octopussy. As the Octopussy is made of glass care and cleaning is very easy, and it can be used with all types of lubricant. Glass is one of my favorite materials for sex toys. It is non-porous, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. As with all glass toys, be sure to carefully inspect your Octopussy before play to make sure there are no chips or cracks. Of course, if there are any do NOT use it. However, Icicles are very well made and as long as you treat your Octopussy well it should last you a very, very long time.

Good storage is important with glass toys and Pipedreams does a great job with its packaging in this sense. Each toy in the Icicles line is meant to be stored in its original packaging, and No 24 is no different. The Octopussy, Babeland’s name for this dildo, comes in a lovely box, though indiscreet box. The box has images on all sides of the Octopussy and some basic information on the back. The front of the box opens like a door and has a magnetic closure. Inside there is a small cutout that allows you to see the Octopussy sitting in its specially designed foam insert. The insert and box keep the Octopussy safe and secure. Of course, if you feel the box takes up too much room you can always purchase a padded pouch.

From the first time I played with my Octopussy, I loved it. This is really saying something because I am definitely a vibrator girl. I generally do need some sort of clit stimulation to get off, direct is often best. So I partnered my brand new Yooo with my brand new Octopussy and drove myself crazy. I love texture so I am in heaven with this heavily textured dildo. I can really feel the nubs like tiny finger tips sliding against me as I thrust but I still find thrusting very easy and comfortable.

At the right angle I can cause the Octopussy to hit my g-spot but the curve is not deep enough for it to really do it naturally. This is slightly disappointing, but also allows the dildo to work very well in my bottom. While an extreme curve works great for my g-spot, it doesn’t work well in my butt.

Even though I was busy working when my Octopussy arrived, I was so excited I took a break to play. Then back to work I went. Not 30 minutes later did it start beckoning. I just wanted that Octopussy inside me again. I love the shape and texture, and the way the glass just slips so smoothly inside. Glass is so wonderful for sensation play. You can soak it in a bowl of ice water or hot water and it will retain the temperature during play. This time the Octopussy ended up in my bottom and may I just say wow! I could feel each little nub and vein caressing my insides and rubbing against me. The curvy handle allowed me to hold it in place as well as thrust very easily. As it is a dildo, it really doesn’t stay put like a butt plug does. However, I found it would stay pretty well with the right amount of wedging and clenching. It must be exactly right though. Not enough clenching and the Octopussy starts to inch its way out; too much and well…I could hold a contest on far I can squirt it out my bottom!

The only way I’d change the Octopussy is to make it longer. I’d like more of it inside me with easier thrusting potential. However, the shorter length ensures that I don’t hit my cervix when thrusting with this toy, which is important when using a hard material like glass.

Octopussy Pros:
• Glass
• Great shape
• Fabulous texture
• Gorgeous
• Useful handle

Octopussy Cons:
• Slightly short

The Octopussy is a heavily textured dildo, so if you don’t like texture or are experimenting with it for the first time, beware! I recommend a less textured toy. For lovers of texture, like me, the Octopussy is simply inspired. In case I haven’t been clear enough I LOVE this dildo and highly recommend it.

G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop

During my trip to ANE I had the opportunity to pick up a brand new toy unlike anything I’ve yet to see. It’s called the G-Spot Lollipop.

The G-Spot Lollipop is made by a small company based in Northern California, and you all know how I love to give shout-outs to local companies. The product is an interesting looking g-spot stimulator that comes in a variety of styles. There is the small Travel Pop that can easily be carried in your purse, the Single Pop, the Double Pop, and the J-Pop. It was difficult to decide which Lollipop to select, they each seem to have their strong points. I love unusual toys, so I went with the the J-Pop which is the weirdest looking of the bunch. I also wanted the one that would be easiest to use by myself and the helpful G-Spot Lollipop Girls recommended the J-Pop.

The G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop is a long steel rod, shaped like a J, with a ball on either end. It is 6 1/4″ wide and is a bit interesting to store. The balls are different sizes. The smaller ball is 5 1/2″ in circumference and 1 3/4″ in diameter, and the larger ball is 6 1/4″ and just under 2″ in circumference. The steel bar is surgical quality stainless steel, which is hypoallergenic and body-safe, and secured to each of the acrylic balls. The G-Spot Lollipops all carry a lifetime replacement guarantee, which is pretty sweet. I cannot imagine how it would be necessary though. This thing is pretty damn sturdy.

The G-Spot Lollipop comes in a variety of fun and bright colors, just like the candy, which is great. Seeing them all together is a feast for the eyes. I just love my sex toys to be pretty. My U-Pop is Wild Apple, an almost neon green. It is bright and cheerful which I really like.

I first tried the G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop with the smaller ball inside me. The ball slid right in and curled under my pelvic bone, up against my g-spot. Using the larger ball as a handle I was able to easily manipulate the smaller ball and rub it against my g-spot with a small rocking motion. I think it must be the spherical shape, but that ball rests in just the right place and does not go anywhere. I don’t need the to do the typical thrusting action that I normally use with most of my g-spot toys which saves wear and tear on my wrist and arm.

Now, I also love the larger ball inside me but it creates a bit of a snag. Putting the larger ball inside makes the smaller ball on its longer stem the handle and this length is less comfortable and not as easy to work with. It places the ball further up my body, which just makes it more difficult to manipulate. The smaller ball also does not fit my hand as well as the larger ball does.

One of the G-Spot Lollipop Girls told me she uses one of the straight Lollipops during intercourse. As the steel bar is so thin, she can insert the ball and keep it against her g-spot while her partner enters her. I have not tried this with the J-Pop, which might be a bit trickier, but she highly recommended it.

The other way I have been using the G-Spot Lollipop is as a kegelcisor. I simply grip the ball with my kegel muscles or pull on the handle if I want a more difficult exercise. This works really well.

The G-Spot Lollipop did not come with any particular packaging. The acrylic balls were shrink-wrapped in plastic to protect them, with coordinating ribbons tied on, but this may be because I got my Lollipop at ANE. I am not sure what the packing is like when you order directly from the company.

Clean up is easy with the G-Spot Lollipop. It is completely waterproof so I simply wash it in the sink with antibacterial soap and water. Of course, you can always use your favorite toy cleaner. As the balls are acrylic, I would also feel safe wiping them down with rubbing alcohol to kill off any bacteria. You can use any type of lubricant with the G-Spot Lollipop, though as usual I use water-based lube.

G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop Pros:
• Interesting design
• Feels great
• Easy to use
• Simple to care for and store

G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop Cons:
• None

Truthfully, I was not expecting that much from the G-Spot Lollipop J-Pop. I was more curious than anything. With it being so unusual looking how could I resist the opportunity to test drive it? I have been very pleasantly surprised by this simple and unique sex toy. It may not look like much but it works amazingly well.

While it is larger and more difficult to store than the other G-Spot Lollipops, I like how the J-Pop curves around. It puts the handle over my pelvis/stomach and makes it very easy to work it inside me. This keeps me from having to stretch my arm all the way down and keeps my wrist from getting as tired as it does with some dildos.

Tantus Alumina Revolve

Tantus is well-known for their yummy silicone sex toys, but did you know they also have a line of aluminum toys as well? My first introduction to the Alumina line is the Tantus Alumina Revolve from FunWares.

The Tantus Alumina Revolve is made of solid aeronautical aluminum that has been anodized to resist corrosion and wear. It is a beautiful shiny purple with a black plastic o-ring in the middle of the dildo. The Revolve is 8″ long, 1 3/8″ in diameter at its widest, and weighs eight ounces. Both sides are insertable and it unscrews in the middle. This allows you to swap pieces with any of the other Tantus Alumina dildos, if you are lucky enough to have more than one, or want to trade with your friends.

Though aluminum is not as heavy as stainless steel, the Tantus Revolve still has a good heft to it and probably could be used as a small weapon. One side has a long teardrop shape while the other has three graduated bulges. The aluminum naturally feels cool in my hands and against my body, while the smoothness and silkiness of it just calls for me to put it inside myself.

Aluminum is a great material for sex toys. It is latex and phthalate-free, body-safe, and recyclable. While aluminum is not a common allergen, it can cause problems for people with sensitivities to metal. Easy to care for, the Tantus Alumina Revolve can be washed in anti-bacterial soap and water, wiped down with your favorite toy cleaner, or cleaned with a 10% bleach solution. You can even put it on the top rack of your dishwasher. You can use any type of lubricant with aluminum, though I favor water-based lubes. It is also great for sensation play as it heats up and cools down easily. Put your Revolve in a bowl of ice or hot water and see which you prefer. I tend to like cold play so I usually start out with the Revolve at its normal cool temperature. It heats up to body temp quite quickly during play, then stays there.

I find the aluminum of the Tantus Alumina Revolve quite slick and therefore I don’t need much, if any lube. I thought it might get slippery from lubricant and/or body fluids but it doesn’t seem to do so. Oddly enough, the aluminum seems to trap and hold the body fluids and keep them from sliding down the handle. This was most unexpected but very appreciated.

I really enjoy the feeling of the Revolve inside of me, though it doesn’t give me that full feeling I usually crave. As it is metal and thus has no give, it feels bigger than its 1 3/8″ diameter. I love the slick smoothness of the the teardrop shape inside me. It feels so soft and smooth moving in and out. I prefer using this end inside me and the graduated bulges as a handle. This combination just suits my body best. The very first time I used the Tantus Alumina Revolve, I had an impressive orgasm very quickly without any direct clitoral stimulation. This is extremely rare for me so I was a bit wowed.

The Tantus Alumina Revolve is meant for vaginal penetration, but can be used anally as long as you or partner keeps a firm hold on it. Do not let it go or it could disappear up your anal canal and necessitate a rather embarrassing trip to the emergency room. Also be sure sterilize with a 10% bleach solution before switching from anal to vaginal play or sharing between non fluid-bonded partners, unless using condoms.

The Alumina Revolve’s packaging is different from the usual Tantus plastic box. It comes in a lovely black cardboard box with silver print. The Revolve lays inside cushioned in a foam cutout. Included is a small pamphlet on the Alumina line in four languages. Though there is an outline of the dildo on the outside of the box, it does not say anywhere on the box that the Revolve is a sex toy so it is quite discrete. The box is great for storage, as it’s not overly large, and it keeps my Revolve safe from dust and scratches.

Tantus Alumina Revolve Pros:
• Aluminum
• Beautiful
• Great shape
• Good for sensation play

Tantus Alumina Revolve Cons:
• On the thin side

I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of Tantus silicone and now I can say I am just as big a fan of their Alumina toys. I just love the feel and lines of the aluminum and color is quite pretty as well. I like the hardness and shape of the Tantus Alumina Revolve. I just really wish it had more girth. I like to feel full and the Revolve just doesn’t do that for me. However, the teardrop provides great pressure against my g-spot and just feels damn good inside me.

Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom

While I do tend to prefer pretty and cute sex toys to realistic ones, I am not usually all that into hearts as a design. However, the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo from FunWares is awfully cute.

At about 7 1/2″ long, with almost the entire shaft being insertable, and just over 1″ in diameter, the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo is larger than I expected. The mushroom tip is a bit over 1 1/2″ in diameter and the flared base is almost 2″ in diameter. It is made of clear borosilicate glass with 1″ hearts in raised glass on the shaft. The hearts are a dark blood red that stand out nicely against the clear glass. I expected the hearts to be smaller and flush to the glass, but I really like the texture of the raised glass against my skin.

Borosilicate glass is the generic form of Pyrex, the same glass used to make oven-safe baking dishes. This type of glass is also used to make high quality sex toys. Borosilicate glass is very strong and almost shatter-resistant. If borosilicate glass breaks, it is far more likely to crack and break into large pieces rather than shatter. However, it takes a serious effort to break or even crack borosilicate glass. I know some people have concerns about using glass sex toys, but no matter how hard you clench down on it, borosilicate glass will not break inside you. No need to fear! In fact, I’ve dropped this glass dildo on the floor from about four feet up and had no problems. Of course, to be safe you always want to check your glass sex toys before use to be sure there are no cracks or scratches.

Glass is an excellent material for sex toys because it is phthalate and latex free, non-porous, hypoallergenic, and totally hygienic. Have I mentioned it is super easy to clean and can be sterilized? You can use soap and warm water, your favorite sex toy cleaner, a 10% bleach solution, and even rubbing alcohol if you can’t stand the smell of bleach. You can also use any type of lubricant with glass, be it water-based, silicone or oil-based.

Another way to enjoy glass toys is sensation play. You can either heat up or cool down glass and it will retain the new temperature for a time. This can add some spice to your normal play. Place the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo in a bowl of ice water or hot water and allow it to slowly and safely reach the desired temperature. Never stick your glass sex toys in the freezer or in boiling water. Such abrupt temperature changes can cause them to crack. I find this dildo tends to naturally be on the cool side and that works well for me as I usually prefer cold to heated play.

The Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo is a pleasure during play. The glass is soft and slick and feels great inside my body. I am such a fan of glass sex toys! The texture of the raised hearts is a nice change and adds to the lovely sensation of the glass. The large mushroom head adds a nice “pop” when I am stroking in and out and gives an interesting tactile difference. First, the larger, smooth head followed by the thinner, textured shaft. Lovely.

While the measurements of this dildo may seem to be on the small side, it actually feels quite a bit larger than one would expect. This is due to the unforgiving nature of glass. As there is no give at all, the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo feels much larger inside me than it actually looks. This lack of forgiveness must kept in mind while stroking as well. If I am not careful, the length of this dildo will allow me to bruise my cervix and in the heat of the moment I often will not notice. This issue is easily resolved simply by making sure I grip enough of the dildo in my hand to effectively shorten it.

An advantage of its flared base is that the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo can be used for anal play as well. Of course, it’s all about preferences but I love glass toys in my bottom and this one is no exception. Granted, it is a dildo not a plug, so it does not stay inside me without help. However, it is great for thrusting and good preparation for anal sex. As with vaginal penetration, the glass is so smooth and slick it requires less lubricant than dildos of other materials, such as silicone. Just a small amount of lubricant gets it slippery and slidey enough for it to easily slip in and out of me.

The Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo comes in a totally non-discreet clear plastic bubble pack, so beware. Included is a small sample of Wet Silicone lubricant, a padded storage pouch, and a Don Wands Glass Care Card. It is very important to store your glass sex toys safely and a padded pouch is an excellent way to do so. I really appreciate that Don Wands includes this pouch in the packaging of their glass toys.

Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo Pros:
• Glass
• Pretty
• Great storage bag
• Multifunction

Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo Cons:
• Can bruise the cervix if not careful

I enjoy playing with this dildo. It is pretty and feels good in my hand as well as inside my body. The flared base for anal play is a nice bonus not available on all my dildos. I am a big fan of sensation play and the Don Wands Glass Red Sweetheart Mushroom Tip Dildo is ideal for this. Not only because it is glass, but also because of the raised hearts. I love that I do not have to spend money on a storage bag as one is included. As FunWares has great price points, this dildo is a financially friendly option as well. Other advantages to ordering from FunWares are the discreet billing and fast shipping. Most orders ship out the same day. Quite impressive!

Adam & Eve Handmaiden Dong

I have been on something of a dildo kick lately, not exactly sure why. I suppose I have just been in a dildo state of mind. I decided to check out the Adam & Eve Handmaiden Dong from FunWares.

The Handmaiden Dong (I really hate the word “dong” but that’s what this dildo is called, so I guess I’ll have to use it. Understand, I am doing so under protest.) is made of 100% solid, platinum-cured, medical-grade silicone. It is light pink in color, so it strikes me as more of a girly girl dildo. It does not come in other colors so if you want the Handmaiden, you had better like pink. It is approximately 7 1/4″ long with 5″ being insertable, and a little more than 1 1/2″ in diameter at its widest point.

This high quality silicone is ideal for sex toys as it is latex and phthalate-free, non-porous, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. Silicone is also easy to care for and a cinch to clean. As the Handmaiden Dong has no electrical or moving parts it is totally waterproof. You can sterilize it by boiling it for 3-5 minutes, washing it in the top rack of your dishwasher (without any soap), or wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution (be sure to wash well after using bleach on any sex toys). You can also simply use anti-bacterial soap and water for a quick and easy clean. However, if you are sharing this dildo between non fluid-bonded partners or swapping from anal to vaginal use, be sure to use a method of sterilization.

Unlike most silicone, the Handmaiden Dong is not a lint magnet, which I greatly appreciate. I love silicone but I do hate is typical lint magnet properties. I can even wipe this dildo down with a towel after washing it and it doesn’t get the fuzzies. The silicone does have a a good amount of drag, however, thus it is best to use a decent amount of water-based lubricant. As the Handmaiden Dong is made from high quality pure silicone it may be possible to use it with certain pure silicone-based lubricants and hybrids, but I prefer to err on the side of caution. The packaging also recommends using water-based lube.

The Handmaiden Dong is like a modern, chic, realistic-ish dildo. Its shaft has a very slight curve, nothing that would hit my g-spot. The end has a rounded point and the “head” has three raised speed bumps (that’s what I call them anyway). The shaft thins out sightly as it comes toward the base. At the bottom of the base is a lump of silicone that reminds me of a sleek, silicone ball sack. Underneath this ball sack is a handle that allows me to hold the dildo easily and comfortably The handle is my favorite part of the Handmaiden Dong. I can slide it in between my first and second fingers and have a firm hold on the dildo for smooth stroking. The handle makes stroking easier and keeps any lube and bodily fluids from drenching my hand. This is what I was hoping for and it works perfectly.

There is a seam along the front and back of the dildo that I feel very easily with my fingers but I don’t notice this when the Handmaiden is inside me. There is also a raised Adam & Eve logo, a female silhouette, on the bottom of the handle. It is fine that it’s raised as this part of the dildo obviously does not go inside your body

Another handy dandy thing about the handle is that it makes this Handmaiden Dong safe for anal use. With the extreme and sudden curve, the ball sack, and the handle, it is very unlikely this dildo will slip up inside your butt. Of course, you want to be sure to use caution and play gently as always when sticking things up your butt. Remember to use lots of lubricant and go slowly.

The Handmaiden Dong is made in China by Topco, a California-based sex toy company. However, the package says, “Australian innovation…” So, I’m confused. Was it designed in Australia rather than at the company’s headquarters in Southern California? The other odd thing on the packaging is it says, “The Original”. I’m wondering, are there a hunch of knockoff Handmaidens out there? I mean, it’s a cool dildo, but I don’t know that it’s so awesome people are doing knockoffs.

The packaging for this dildo consists of a see-through plastic sleeve that wraps around a clamshell with a clever closure. Inside the clamshell sits the Handmaiden Dong with it’s grey satiny storage pouch. I just L O V E it when manufacturers include storage pouches with their toys. I think it is so lovely and considerate. This packaging does take up a fair amount of room and is not at all discreet. You can see the dildo right there, sitting in it’s little clamshell and it looks exactly like what it is, a sex toy. Therefore, the storage pouch is just a bit of extra awesomeness included with this dildo. Also, thanks to the Handmaiden Dong’s packaging I now know how to say silicone dildo in six languages other than English. Rock on!

I prefer my sex toys to be modern, stylized, cute, interesting, odd…pretty much anything but realistic. I don’t need to pretend it is a real penis. If i want to have sex with a real penis, I will. The Handmaiden Dong certainly fits the bill while still giving me access to a dildo with a ball sack. This stylized ball sack presses up against my labia and adds nicely to the stimulation when I’m stroking or just holding it inside me. The handle works so well and really makes this dildo a pleasure to use. It is more of a flick of the wrist than using my entire forearms. I think this dildo would be good for people with weaker upper bodies or those lazy masturbators like me.

Handmaiden Dildo Pros:
• Silicone
• Handle
• Silicone ball sack
• Storage pouch

Handmaiden Dildo Cons:
• Might be too short for some

Usually I like my dildos in glass but the Handmaiden Dong really tales the cake. (Mmmmm, cake.) It is made of perfectly body-safe silicone that is not lint magnet-y, has a lovely silicone ball sack, a rockin’ handle, and comes with a useful storage pouch. Thanks to FunWares, it comes at a very reasonable price and ships out the same day you order. FunWares also ships very discreetly so you can feel secure in ordering your sex toys without anyone being the wiser.

Metal Worx Slim Fave

Like shiny new sex toys? I do! A few weeks ago I reviewed the new Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps and today I have the pleasure of reviewing another product from the new Metal Worx line, the Slim Fave Dildo from FunWares.

As I mentioned previously, Metal Worx is a new line of metal sex toys put out by Pipedream Products. The Slim Fave Dildo is part of this new line. It is made of high quality nickel-free stainless steel. Stainless steel is non-porous, latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. This means you can easily clean and sterilize it to share between non-fluid bonded partners. To sterilize your Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo, wash or spray it with a 10% bleach solution (nine parts water, one part bleach). To wash it you can simply use warm water and antibacterial soap or your favorite sex toy cleaner. You can also stick it in the dishwasher. As with glass sex toys, you can use any type of lubricant with stainless steel. So feel free to use those silicone-based lubes you can’t use with your silicone dildos. The stainless steel is so smooth and slick I need very little lube, if any, with the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo, but slick it up as much as you like.

The Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo is 9.5″ long and measures 1.25″ in diameter at the larger end, 1.5″ in the middle, and .05″ at the smaller end. It weighs almost 1.75 pounds, which makes it my heaviest dildo by far. The weight feels good in my hand but can make my wrist tired if I’m thrusting too long. I guess I’m more out of shape than I realized!

The shape of the Slim Fave Dildo is interesting. The head of the larger end of the dildo has a rather flat surface that feels great sliding against my clit. Either end is good for gripping, though I prefer to grip the end with the graduated balls, or the middle. If you do use too much lube, the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo can get a tad slippery so remember, less is more in this case.

Stainless steel is great at retaining temperatures so the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo is excellent for sensation play. It always starts out cold, which for me is great as I am a fan of cold play. If you want it even colder you can cool down more by soaking it in a bowl of ice water. If you prefer warm to cold play, you can heat up your Slim Fave Dildo in a bowl of hot water. Either way, eventually the stainless steel will warm up or cool down to your body temperature, but in the meantime you can have fun creating different sensations with temperature.

The stainless steel is super shiny and quite pretty. It gets fingerprinty very easily but also shines up nicely with a soft cloth.

Just like the Magnetic Nipple Clamps, the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo comes in a very cool storage case. It is a black and silver hard case that latches closed. Inside, the Slim Fave Dildo lays in a bed of shaped hard foam. This box is perfect for storage which is obviously the point. It is a great way to keep your Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo safe and sound. It’s also good way to keep it from banging against other more delicate sex toys in your toy chest.

Though it is tempting, I have not used the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo in my ass because even though the stainless steel is great for anal play, it has no flared base to make it anal safe. Then again, as the Slim Fave Dildo is quite long it is easy to keep a firm grip on it so it could be fine to use with a partner, but I wouldn’t recommend using it solo. If you are going to use it for anal play, please be careful and make sure you don’t just let go of it.

I really love cold play and I love how cold the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo gets. The sensation feels wonderful against my warm skin. The smoothness of the stainless steel shape slides over my clit and labia in delightful manner and slips inside me smoothly and easily.

While I like the graduated beads on the smaller end, I like them less than the larger side simply because the of the smaller diameter. I like my dildos more filling and find the graduated beads too small to give me that feeling. The Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo is long enough that I can bruise my cervix if I get lost in the moment and thrust too intensely, but that also depends on where I hold it. I can essentially shorten the length and keep this from happening by holding it higher on the shaft.

Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo Pros:
• Stainless steel
• Good for sensation play
• Great packaging
• Nice weight

Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo Cons:
• Can get very heavy during play

If you like metal sex toys, the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo is a great option. The high quality stainless steel will last you quite a long time and provide all sorts of temperature-based fun. The storage box should last almost as long as the dildo if you treat it nicely. The heavy weight of the dildo is both a positive and a negative. I love it but it does wear on my wrist after a while. If you like the unusual shape of the dildo and the smooth texture of the stainless steel, you’re in for a treat with the Metal Worx Slim Fave Dildo.

Tenga Lip Service

Masturbation sleeves: they’re those ridiculous-looking tubes that, as a man, I’m a bit wary of sticking myself inside of. Sure they might take up an entire shelf at your local sex store, but do I really want to put my dick inside of a flashlight? How about an ultra-realistic looking set of disembodied hips or a strange, day-glo cylinder made out of materials with names right out of a science fiction novel? Call me a old fashioned, but sometimes a hand just feels more familiar. With this in mind, I was a bit wary upon seeing the “Tenga Lip Service” for the first time.

On one hand, it’s a blowjob machine. This means that I’ll inevitably be placing my manhood in the rubbery grasp of the cold and unnatural. But, on the other hand, this one had some promise. First, it was engineered and created in Japan, the same adult novelty culture that gave us tentacle porn and that strange stuff that turns water into goo; they know their stuff. Second, the “cup” was severely lacking any of the ridiculousness which inspired my original fear of masturbation sleeves, this one looked more like a fancy bottle of body wash or conditioner I had a greater risk of being labeled as having expensive tastes than being a pervert. But, sophisticated grooming products aside, I was genuinely excited to try out the “Lip Service” (also known as the Deep Throat Cup) and put it through its paces. Before we get to that however, I should explain a bit about the Tenga in the first place.

Engineered in Japan by a former mechanic, the Lip Service comprises only one of a growing number of pre-packaged, “onacups” with names like “Rolling-head Cup” and “Soft Tube Cup” which, as you may have inferred, offer different types of stimulations. In particular, the Lip Service offers a unique method of suction that utilizes a small hole in one end of the cup to create a vacuum around the soft, jelly sleeve inside. Basically, you stick yourself in the cup to push the air around the sleeve out of the hole. Then, while covering the hole, you withdraw your penis from the cup and the thin jelly material hugs the skin close while providing suction. Pretty cool, right?

I’d have to see if it delivered on its promise.

Did it ever.

Removing the Lip Service (which I’ll just refer to as LS from now on,) from its package, unwrapping the protective covering and uncapping the business end of the diminutive cup, I was greeted with this:

A seemingly endless abyss of white jelly lay before me, coated in thick, slippery lube. I felt loved, knowing that there was a machine somewhere making sure that I didn’t have to lube up my LS before having at it. Taking a gulp, I inched myself into the LS, taking in the sensations as I heard a loud flatulating noise resonate around my penis. What had I done? Had I upset the Tenga somehow? Was I being punished by the masturbation gods for using such a plain looking masturbation sleeve? No, I just hadn’t removed the sticker on top! Right then, take two.

Sliding in again, a soft “pssht” sound replaced the earlier noise of the blocked hole and I could feel the material pushing against my penis. Now, I’m not a large guy by any means, but I could easily fill the LS with my overwhelming average-ness. Fear not however, they make larger versions for the XL guys out there. For me however, the normal Tenga did just fine and, placing my fingers over the little hole at the other end of the LS, I began to pump away. An astounding 30 seconds later, I collapsed on my bed in the throes of La Petite Mort, toes still curled from the experience.

Thirty seconds. Seriously.

Maybe it was the inhuman geometry of the inner sleeve that did it, perhaps it was the sucking sensation that drew the little ridges tight against my cock whenever I slipped out, but I have never climaxed so quickly in my life. In this respect, I’d give the Lip Service seven thumbs up if I could. The suction works and it works well, as evidenced by the very audible “slurp” that accompanied every thrust. That’s right, it slurps. Tenga claims that this adds to the realistic blowjob ambiance, but it can certainly be a detractor if you’re looking to be discreet about it. Luckily, it also makes a great aid without the suction, as evidenced by several longer follow-up tests over the course of the next week… Often several at a time.

As for whether or not it actually feels like a blowjob, that’s a tricky one. The different bumps and stimulation-enhancing bits on the inside certainly stimulate as much as a human mouth, perhaps even more in my case, but after a while you begin to notice the very real lack of life in the little plastic widget quickly engulfing your manhood. As a fan of blowjobs and the Tenga both, I’d have to say that in a pinch, the LS will more than do the job.

Any product that produces results this pleasurable wouldn’t be without its little niggles though, right? You’re correct! The LS does have a small list of issues, both large and small. First, the entire Tenga line is disposable. In that, you throw it out after one use. Like a one night stand, but… plastic. It’s possible to wash the Tenga with a bit of water and antibacterial soap, but the company doesn’t recommend it and neither do I. If you follow the recommendations of the company and dispose of your Tenga after you use it, you’re looking at around 15 bucks each time you’re feeling a bit randy. Now, I haven’t tried sticking my dick in caviar or saffron, but 15.00 to insert yourself into something plastic for a few minutes and then throw away? It seems like a waste of money to me, and that’s where Tenga failed to win me over completely. Perhaps Tenga’s reusable onahole, the Flip-Hole, would be a better choice for the budget-conscious masturbator. As for the disposal itself, the Tenga is completely recyclable, so it’s entirely possible to get yer jollies and freak out the guys at the recycling center at the same time. Woo!

Second, the noise can get quite loud at times—fine if you live alone, not so fine if you don’t. Finally, I found that the sensations delivered by the LS depended more on my arousal. When I wasn’t particularly horny, the sensations felt a little bland and lifeless, although it still did the job. When I was really horny however? It was as if every inch of my cock could feel what was happening. Bland rubbery “hole” or uber-engineered orgasm extracting device, you’re likely to fall somewhere between the two sentiments.

In closing, the Tenga can be likened to a gourmet meal on plastic tableware: perfectly prepared and ultimately satisfying, but also cheap and utterly disposable.

Twister Massager

MyPleasure has recently started carrying a new line of glass sex toys called Joyful Pleasure. I really love glass toys so I was very happy to get my hands on the Twister.

The Twister is a hand blown glass massager that is designed in Europe and handmade in China, though Joyful Pleasure is based in California. It is made of clear glass with an opaque raised black swirl on the shaft and raised black bumps on the base. It also has a rather pronounced head. The Twister is 6″ in length from the bottom of the handle to the top of the scored head. Approximately 4.25″ of the Twister is insertable and it is 1.5″ in diameter. The handle is slightly over 1.5″ in length. According to my ancient little postage scale, it weighs about 10.5 ounces, so it is a hefty little thing.

Joyful Pleasure’s packaging is quite simple. The Twister comes in a cardboard box with a little window on the front through which you can see the toy. The box also has images of the Twister on both sides and text on the back with a fair amount of information. It is quite clear this box houses a sex toy so you may not want to leave it laying about where just anyone can see it.

According to the back of the Joyful Pleasure box, the Twister is fracture-resistant. I assume this is due to type of glass from which it is made. However, there is no further information on the box or the website for me to share with you.

Glass is a really awesome material for sex toys for so many reasons. It is latex and phthalate-free, non-porous, body-safe, and hypoallergenic. While people can develop allergies to some of the materials used to make sex toys, I have yet to run across someone who is allergic to glass. Glass is super easy to clean as well. You can simply wash it with antibacterial soap and warm water, your favorite sex toy cleaner, a 10% bleach solution, or wash it in the dishwasher. Just be careful when handling it as you don’t want to bang it against hard objects, like sinks or counters. I know the Twister is supposed to be fracture-resistant but that doesn’t mean you want to go around banging it against things. Another wonderful thing about glass is that is it compatible with all lubricants so you can use whatever type of lube you want with your Twister.

Glass is also great for sensation play, something that I really enjoy. You can quickly and easily change the temperature of your Twister by running it under hot or cold water or soaking it in a bowl of either. The glass will hold the temperature for a good while before it slowly adjusts to your body temperature.

The biggest issue with glass is that it needs to be stored carefully. I prefer padded storage bags and I wish the Twister came with one. Right now, I am storing it inside its box and that has been fine. You just want to make sure you are careful with your Twister when storing it. Also be sure to look it over carefully before and after use. If you do find any cracks or chips, dispose of it. Do not use a glass sex toy that shows any sort of damage. Having said this, I own quite a few glass sex toys and I have never damaged a single one.

One of the main reasons I was interested in this particular piece from Joyful Pleasure was the handle. The Twister has a small off-center handle which is designed to allow you to twist the Massager inside of you. This seems good in theory and was the entire reason I wanted to try out this Massager. The Twister looks like other glass dildos I’ve seen that are often called “juicers”. I had always assumed this was because you would twist them around like you would a juicer. Unfortunately, the handle does not work well for twisting or “juicing” for me at all. Trying to twist the massager is just too awkward and I cannot get any motion going in this manner. The motion just ends up being very jerky and not at all smooth. In fact, I get really frustrated every time I try to spin the Twister inside me. I can’t make it work and it drives me crazy. I’m not sure if I am just too uncoordinated to make this work right or if the Twister really is meant to be used with a partner. The handle is super awesome for thrusting though, which I hadn’t bothered considering before using it. I was just so excited about the juicing aspect.

Some people may consider 4.25″ too short to mbe a good dildo. It is short, but what is great about this length is that I can thrust the Twister as hard as I want without coming close to hitting my cervix.

As it has a flared base, the Twister can also be used anally. The short length makes it good to use as a plug but it will probably be to short to stimulate a man’s prostate if you were to want to use it that way. You can sterilize your Twister with the previously mentioned 10% bleach solution which make switching between anal and vaginal use easy as pie. Of course, using a condom anally will also make this very easy to do. Using condoms with your Twister or sterilizing it will also allow you to use it between partners.

Twister Pros:
• Glass
• Handle
• Pronounced head
• Good for sensation play
• Can be used vaginally and anally

Twister Cons:
• Doesn’t twist for me
• No storage bag

While I was disappointed with the lack of actual twisting, the handle on the Twister is pretty great for thrusting, and my issues may be user error. The handle makes a short dildo seem not so short in use. As I have mentioned, glass is excellent for a variety reasons and I love sensation play. I’m particularly fond of cold play. The Twister is attractive and seems well-made. The shape works well for me, especially the pronounced head of the massager. I’m disappointed there is no storage bag included. I know, I always say that, but it’s even more important when the sex toy is made of glass. Overall, the Twister is a nice little massager that can be used either vaginally or anally which makes it quite versatile.

I am a bit conflicted on how to rate the Twister. An important part of this type of toy is the twisting motion which was a total failure for me. However, it does end up working well in other ways. If it weren’t for the twisting fail I’d give the Twister four stars, but it loses one star due to that disappointment.

You can pick up your own Twister as well as check out the other Joyful Pleasure massagers at MyPleasure. Plus, right now you will receive a free Sensual Essence Silk Lubricant with your Joyful Pleasures purchase!

Tantus Cush

For a while now I’ve been hearing all about dual density silicone and I have been very curious. So when the opportunity to review the Tantus Cush from Babeland came up, I jumped at it.

Amongst my dildos, the Tantus Cush is fast becoming a favorite. It is one of Tantus’ O2 dildos, which means it is dual density. There is a soft, squishy, plush layer of silicone over a firm inner core, giving the Cush a very different feel from other dildos. This top layer, which is a milky white, is extremely giving and squashable. The inner purple core is very firm Tantus silicone. It really does make the Cush feel unusual. It is giving to a point and then it just stops. This is meant to make it feel more like a real, live penis. The color is also quite fun with the dark purple silicone showing through the milky outer layer.

The Tantus Cush is 7″ long with a diameter of 1.75″. It has a pronounced coronal ridge and a significant ridge about midway down on the shaft. The head is slightly pointy but mostly made of the soft, squishy silicone so it’s not at all sharp. I just love how the soft silicone squashes in my hand. It’s like one of those squishy stress dolls. It’s just fun. The Tantus Cush has a thick and solid base making it perfect to use with a harness. This base also makes anal play possible as it will keep the dildo from slipping too far into the anus. Always be sure to sterilize the Cush when switching from anal to vaginal play.

The Tantus Cush comes in the typical Tantus packaging, a clear lightweight plastic box. You can easily see the dildo inside the box so it’s really not good for hiding it away. It isn’t the most sturdy box in the world and it does take up quite a bit more room than a storage bag or plastic baggie so it’s not the greatest box for storage, but it also isn’t the worst. Inside the box the Cush Dildo sits in a plastic clamshell. The clamshell in my box is obviously for a smaller dildo and also has a little place for a bullet vibrator. This is apparently a standard clamshell used for other Tantus products as well. I am not a huge fan of Tantus packaging, but I am a big fan of their sex toys, which is what’s important.

While this is an O2 dual density dildo, the Tantus Cush is still made of Tantus Ultra-Premium Platinum silicone. This high quality silicone is latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. The Tantus Cush is completely odorless and tasteless and can be easily cared for and cleaned. Like other silicone products you can wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap, your favorite sex toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution. As the Cush has no moving parts, you can also boil it for three to five minutes and wash it in the top drawer of your dishwasher (without soap). This makes the Cush very versatile and easy to use between partners, as well as both vaginally and anally.

I use water-based lubricant with the Tantus Cush as it is 100% silicone and therefore can react with the silicone-based lube. However, you can always do a patch test at the base of the dildo to determine if your silicone-based lubricant is compatible. If the Cush gets sticky or tacky, wash the lube off right away and stick with water-based. I find less drag with this dual density silicone than with traditional Tantus silicone, but I do still require lubrication. It just makes the Cush all slippery and slidey which generally feels better.

I love how this dildo feels inside me. As I slowly thrust, I can feel the girth of the Tantus Cush gently spreading me and I really like this feeling. I feel the give of the top layer of squashy silicone and the firmness of the core beneath it. To me, sex toys always feel significantly different than a live penis but there is something more similar about the Tantus Cush. It doesn’t feel the same but it is definitely closer. I like to use the Tantus Cush inside me with a vibe on my clit, like the We-Vibe Touch, which is one of my favorite clit vibes. The fullness of the dildo inside me is a wonderful added sensation to the clit stimulation.

I know the coronal ridge on this dildo is designed for g-spot stimulation and I get quite a good amount considering the Tantus Cush is not a curved sex toy. However, I don’t get the same kind of stimulation I do from other toys that are curved. The mild g-spot stimulation I get when using the Tantus Cush is an added bonus but it’s not the primary sensation. Nonetheless, it does add to the overall greatness of this dildo. The squashy firmness, the fullness, and the g-spot stimulation all together create a variety of sensations that I really enjoy.

Tantus Cush Pros:
• Awesome dual density silicone
• Feels great inside me
• Girthy
• Mild g-spot stimulation
• Fun color and design

Tantus Cush Cons:
• Might be too girthy for some

Overall, the Tantus Cush is just a great dildo for me. I love the dual density silicone. The soft giving layer over the firm core feels wonderful and is quite different from my other dildos. I really am looking forward to trying more dildos like the Cush. Due to the girth of this dildo, the Tantus Cush is not for beginners and may require some warm up with a smaller dildo or vibrator. Even more advanced users may require some warm up if you are not accustomed to thicker sex toys. I do not need to warm up with something else first, I can go straight to the Cush as I do not find it too large and I enjoy the stretching feeling.

Pick up your own Tantus Cush at Babeland. If the you like the sound of the Cush but aren’t into the purple color and want something more realistic, try the Tantus Luke or the Tantus Adam. Both are from the Tantus O2 line with the amazing dual density silicone but are less fantastical in looks.
