Menstrual Cups are Awesome! Fun Cup Review

By: Lilith

While a lot of people question why a sex store would have menstrual cups, I think the more important question is why wouldn’t it? The sex stores of today, like Wicked Wanda’s, isn’t just about getting your rocks off anymore but is also about health and socially conscious consumerism and the growing trend of menstrual cups is absolutely a part of that.


I switched to using a Diva Cup (kind of menstrual cup) over a year ago and it was a massive difference in a lot of ways. I used to use tampons which was expensive and terrible for my vaginal health. I’d be really dry and often irritated using tampons. My body would usually take at least a day after my period to get back to it’s normal moist self and god it sucked having to always have tampons on me. Oh and tampons and pads are so bad for the environment! All of that packaging and chemically treated


At first when I was thinking of switching to a cup, the price of them got me second guessing it: $50 and up seemed like a lot. Check out Visual.ly.com’s breakdown of the costs! You spend thousands on tampons and pads over a lifetime and only just over $140 on cups because your cup can last anywhere from 2-5 years of use!


I was also worried about being able to empty my cup in public washrooms and how messy it would be. Guess what, periods can be messy and using a cup or a tampon doesn’t change that. That is what soap and water is for. So you can keep your cup in for up to 12 hours with absolutely no risk to your body or having your cup overflow. So the likelihood you can’t get to a single stall bathroom or home by then is pretty unlikely! I never have a problem with finding a place I can empty my cup. Hell, the average workday is 8 hours, that gives you 4 hours to find somewhere that you feel comfortable dumping your bloody goop into.


Pro-tip: Often when people note that they’ve had leaks using a cup, it’s because they did not adequately get the cup to create a seal in the vagina. My tip is to sit down on the toilet to insert and remove, and when you insert it in, push around the edge of the cup to let the excess air out. You’ll get a adorable little fart noise. Feel around the bottom of the cup to make sure that it has popped open all the way around and some people like to give it a little twist to make the seal really secure.


So I loved the Diva Cup for a super long time and I’m 100% converted to the menstrual cup life but I didn’t really know there was other options for the longest time. Kinda like how Kleenex is just a brand and not actually the name of the product (facial tissues). The Diva Cup has become synonymous with the product. My only complaints with the Diva Cup was that the rings around the bottom were quite abrasive at times and that it was a little bigger then I really needed it to be so I couldn’t poop with it in. So every time, I had to take it out and reinsert for pooping, which was annoying. It’s also clear in colour so even though it is totally clean and good to use, your body will stain it a little overtime so it doesn’t look very cute or clean.


So I was really excited when i saw that one of my absolutely favorite brands Fun Factory had come out with their own menstrual cups (see my review on their Magnum dildo HERE). This company is well known for their fantastic products and very high quality materials and the Fun Cup is no different! I love it! First, it is probably the cutest menstrual cup I've ever seen, it looks like a little gnome hat in awesome colours that are not transparent. It is a beautiful soft medical silicone with no weird ridges that irritate my vaginal opening. It comes with 2 cups instead of just the one for a comparable price to the Diva Cup. The little booklet it comes with is very thorough and delightful to read with lots of great tips and colourful pictures. Like the Diva Cup there is 2 different sizes you can get and the Size A (which is what I have) is perfect for people who have not had children and who are not especially heavy regularly. Though what's great about cups is that if you make sure that seal is real good then it doesn’t matter how heavy your flow is because it can’t overwhelm the cup.


Since you’ve gotten this far and you haven’t gotten grossed out by all of the TMI, the Fun Cup lets me poop with it in without pushing it out!! This is super exciting for me as the cup just flows with my body and stays nicely tucked up there. It’s also great for having in during oral because it doesn’t have a weird stem like the Diva Cup so your partner can actually get up in there with the tongue and still not have to worry about a bloody mess.


By fair, the Fun Cup is the most comfortable menstrual cup i’ve ever used. It’s awesome for sexy times and just living your life. I don’t even feel it at all while it’s in. No doubt like any menstrual cup or product for that matter, it takes time to get used to it and this product might not work for you for a variety of reasons but it works super well for me. My vagina is so much healthier and happier. I don’t feel uncomfortable enjoying sexy times anymore with it in. I feel confident that I won’t have any leaks, to the point where I will regularly go without underwear while on my period. I have saved hundreds of dollars and have spent less than $100 on cups. Even though Fun Factory gives you two cups in a pack, you don’t need it unless you want to keep one at your partner’s place or in your purse or save it for 5 years down the road. I’ll be giving the other one to my friend who is a traveler because it can be so hard to find tampons around the world that are the same as you would find in Canada and culturally it can be a little taboo looking for them or using them.


I have found literally nothing to complain about for Fun Factory’s Fun Cups. Maybe the price but you’ve paid it off within 2-3 months of not having to buy tampons and pads and they last up to 5 years. Hell, you can boil the cups if you really want too though soap and water works just fine.


I felt like a feminist superhero after I converted to menstrual cups because I took charge of my body’s health, saved money and helped the environment. I’m not sticking poisonous sticks of bleach into my vagina anymore and I’m not walking around with a diaper on. While I have lots of different, fancy sex toys, this is one of the best products i’ve bought for my vagina, period.

 Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit: Reviewed

I’ve recently been bestowed the honor of testing and reviewing the Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit and perfection doesn’t even begin to explain the pleasure received from this toy. First off, let me tell you a little about Satisfyer. This gift to the vagina works by bringing air through a silicone nozzle which then fits snugly over your clitoris. The pulsating effect creates a vacuum seal giving your clit maximum stimulation without direct contact. The best way to describe it is like getting amazing oral sex. Now the Satisfyer Rabbit gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to making your vagina happy, clitoris stimulation (especially the suction of the Satisfyer) and G-spot stimulation. All while being completely waterproof and rechargeable like the original Satisfyer.

 

The Suction

The suction on the Satisfyer Rabbit is the same amazing suction you get on the original Satisfyer Pro 2 with some slight differences. The first obvious difference is that the opening of the suction nozzle is much larger on the G-spot Rabbit at 1.5 cm wide leaving less room for error. In other words, it isn’t hard to find the connection of nozzle to clit. Without being able to move the stiff, 2 inch nozzle freely on your clitoris, the larger opening helps. The pumping power is great and goes up to 11 strength settings like the original Satisfyer Pro 2. Unfortunately though, the suction doesn’t feel as intense and you can’t really press it down on your clitoris without inserting the g-spot stimulator more. Being able to have full control of the positioning of one stimulation device without compromising the placement of another is usually preferred and the suction power being weaker doesn’t help. Thankfully though, the g-spot stimulator is quite flexible allowing a bit of leeway when it comes to getting the perfect spot on any clit and having the g-spot stimulation makes up for the lack of clitoral suction.

 

The G-Spot Stimulator

The Satisfyer G-spot Rabbit delivers exceptional G-spot stimulation with a 5 inch stimulator. This smooth silicone beacon of pleasure is controlled with 2 separate buttons on a 4 inch handle. One is a soft white button for the clitoris suction, and the other is a hard bronze button that controls the G-spot stimulators 10 vibrating levels and functions. It’s tapered, curved tip makes it easy to insert while also hitting the g-spot with ease. The flexibility of the G-spot stimulator on the Satisfyer Rabbit is a great addition to this toy because it makes it much easier to use. Everyone’s anatomy is different so making a toy that’s supposed to hit your clit AND your G-spot simultaneously is hard to do especially when the clitoris stimulation needs to be very direct to work properly. This toy delivers by having the G-spot stimulator as versatile as it is with its flexible base. That being said, it’s really only fully adjustable when fully inserted and takes some practice to find the right spot. The vibration is very strong and the lowest setting is powerful enough to be effective. That coupled with the suction brings you directly to pleasure paradise.

 

The Whole Package

To tie it all together, this toy is awesome and gave me maximum pleasure as expected. Having the Satisfyers’ infamous suction device attached to a powerful G-spot stimulator is a recipe for greatness, and greatness is certainly what you get from the Sastisfyer G-spot Rabbit. It wasn’t effortless though like the original Satisfyer Pro 2’s strong suction, but it is quieter making it less of a distraction. The buttons to control the toy take some getting used to but are made in the best possible way. There’s nothing worse than getting confused or flustered while you masturbate and the Satisfyer G-spot Rabbit has done the best possible job to make sure all you feel is satisfaction. My personal preferences while using the Satisfyer G-spot Rabbit is a high level suction with a low level g-spot stimulation. I like the functions of the g-spot stimulator so I can have an option of low to high without adjusting the settings myself. The suction alone makes having an orgasm extremely easy and the g-spot stimulation adds an extra push to the intensity of that orgasm. Everyone is different though, and fit matters a lot especially in the case of a dual-stimulator toy like this one.

We-Vibe Pivot Review

We-Vibe Pivot Review

By: Stoya

The Pivot by We-Vibe is an essential addition to any penis owner’s sex toy collection. This wonderful little machine takes luxury to the next level with a super powerful and easily rechargeable motor and a sleek silicone coating that is totally waterproof.


My partner, who we will affectionately refer to as T, and I have tried cockrings in the past. They were of a lesser quality and did not really impress either of us. That is why I was so pleased to see how excited my partner was with our new toy. The tight grip allowed him to thrust harder and faster without having to worry about ejaculating. However, due to the deep vibrations, when it was his turn to cum he found himself able to achieve orgasm quickly and to an extent that was very satisfying. He especially enjoyed the fun app feature of this toy. The pivot can connect to your phone by bluetooth, allowing you to flick through the 10 different tantalizing vibration patterns from your cellphone. My partner really enjoyed when I was in control of the app, which left him guessing about what would happen next and how intense or teasing the sensation would be.


The only critique of the product would be the one size fits all concept. My partner likes a particularly tight grip around his penis, with that being said, he did remark that it was very snug fit. If you are someone that needs a bit of breathing room, I’d recommend looking at the Verge by We-vibe. This toy is very similar to the Pivot, however is designed to go around both the penis and the balls and therefore has a larger diameter.


Not only was it very arousing to see how much pleasure this toy brought my partner, but it also had features that extended to myself as well. I was very excited to use it as a vibrator on my clit, as the motor is impressively powerful, smooth and led to intense orgasms. Being penetrated while my partner used the pivot was quite a treat. Although the vibration was not consistent enough to bring me to climax, it gave me teasing pleasure, especially when he would grind into me. I also had a lot of fun controlling the toy from my phone while he gave me cunniligus.


My partner and I do not live in the same city and therefore have our fair share of Skype sex. What has always attracted me to We-Vibe products is they really cater to long distance couples. Not only was my partner able to hook up the Pivot to his phone through bluetooth, but then I was able to connect via wifi and control the toy while being in another country! We did find we had to re-pair the toy with his phone a couple times throughout the session, but overall I was very impressed with the technology.


What I loved most about The Pivot is that it enhances all elements of sex. It can easily be used solo to spice up masturbation. Your partner can wear it during foreplay to add extra sensation. And then of course during penetration which adds extra fun to both parties experience. I cannot stop raving about this product to anyone who will listen and I can’t wait to try more toys by We-Vibe!

Review- Satisfyer Pro 2

Review- Satisfyer Pro 2

By: Margeurite

Sometimes you just have to do it yourself. What woman hasn’t said that to herself at least half a dozen times in a week? It applies to everything, cleaning, laundry, cooking, anything., You cannot always depend on someone else to help (for about a million reasons we call life). Same goes for getting your orgasm too, sometimes you just have to do it yourself!

The Satisfyer Pro 2 is the new favourite DYS toy in my life! (DYS; Do yourself. Yes, I *think* I just made this up, it’s so fetch.)


I love its classy rose gold colouring! This toy could be mistaken for a body massager (technically, it is one of sorts). If you leave this charging on the beside table, no one is likely to do a double take walking by (which for myself who has roommates, that’s a pro). From my experience over the last few weeks it does not require constant charging, seems to hold a charge fairly well for a long period of time. It’s your basic charger, one end is a USB, and the other is a magnetic charger that doesn’t easily come out of place if you knock it and it is easy to attach. I charged it while gone during the day, so I cannot say anything to how long it takes to charge.I can’t say much for the box packaging, as I didn’t get the box with it on pick-up (the boxes on the shelf looked nice though). I did receive it in sealed plastic wrapping, which is reassuring since no one wants to get a toy that they can’t be sure hasn’t been touched by a stranger. It came with charger and easy to read instruction booklet.

This toy is very light weight, easily held and maneuvered. Over a period of extended use your wrist isn’t going to be stiff the next day. I love the silicone nozzle, it is soft and gentle on your skin. As someone who is sometimes sensitive down there to textures, I really enjoy the material used. It has only two buttons, thank goodness! I can’t stand the twist things a lot of toys have. The buttons are self explanatory, easily maneuvered to start and a breeze to change settings up, without throwing off your groove, when you need a little bit more.

How it works; this is a strictly clitoral stimulation toy. The lovely silicone nozzle is placed directly on your clit, and then you’re off to the races. I like to turn mine on before placing, but I’m sure you could place and then start if you so desired. It does not need to be moved once in place, trust me! What the SP2 does is gives you a sort of pulsation, I find it hard to describe honestly. It’s somewhere between a pulsation, vibration and suction. Whatever it is, however you describe it, it works! And there’s so many different settings!  There is one for everyone I promise (or a combination of different ones). If you’re feeling easy, or if your body is playing hard to get, it doesn’t matter. I have had zero troubles getting the job done with the SP2, sometimes way faster than I am used to.

Something else awesome about the SP2? It’s completely water proof! Like, not just use it and be done water proof. I accidently knocked it in the tub while it was on the side and it stayed in there fully submerged for a good 15 minutes until I noticed. It’s a different sensation when you are using it underwater, maybe it’s because I’m fairly sensitive but to me the experience in water was more intense than the non-water use. Perhaps its because the pulsation is now also moving the water around on your clit, I am not sure the science behind it, but wow!

My biggest like for the SP2 is the fact that it is quiet. To some this may seem like a trivial thing. But for me, who has roommates, and who likes her me time to be me time, I don’t want to broadcast to my whole house what I am doing. With other toys it’s like I’m building a blanket fort trying to dampen the buzz of the vibration. The SP2 is wonderfully quiet, I can lay back an enjoy without the sound proofing ordeal of the past. Even in the bath/shower I didn’t have to worry about an echo from the tub or the tiled walls in the room.

My man is all for my getting my O (even if he’s not involved), he always does his best to make sure I get it when we play, even if extra stimulation is needed on occasion (God love him). Last week we needed the extra help. He dove into the box and pulled out the SP2, and of course, wanted to try it. We have a habit of taking toys for one and making them toys for two. So, a position change to our favourite then adding the SP2, next thing I knew the task was done. The pulsation paired with Him had me soaring high in a matter of minutes. It was easy to hold onto and in position while still holding my body position for what he was doing so that he could get his after he got me mine.

In my humble opinion the SP2 is a win on all counts, I am very grateful to have this toy in my collection!

Anyone who hasn’t bought a Valentines day gift for their girl yet, hint hint.

Fun Factory's Magnum Dildo- Reviewed

By: Lilith

I'm not much for penetration when I masturbate, don't get me wrong -when I need a thorough solo-boning I'll bring out all of the stops but usually it's just my good old Veronica (Hitachi rechargeable Vibe) that gets me through the long nights. But there are those nights... and I think most people know what I mean, you practically rip off your clothing and enjoy the buffet of orgasms possible with your toy collection, veggies or otherwise. My go to for those nights is without a doubt Fun Factory's Magnum dildo. It is incredibly smooth, shaped beautifully and makes my vagina (recently named the devil cave) very very happy.

Since my employment in a sex store, I've seen a lot of dildos... a lot and there is worlds of differences between them that is really important to consider when buying yourself a new one. For me, I always look for a phallic but not life-like dildo, that it's good quality, will last forever and can be used for multiple types of play and the magnum is so far my favorite on the dildo-tastic market.

 

1. Phallic but not life-like: Everyone is different what preference they have on this front but for me the shape of the toy must be functional, classy and easily cleaned. The Magnum is one solid piece of 100% medical-grade silicone (meaning that soap and water cleans it beautifully) and the shape is great for following the natural anatomy of the female body for penetration. Not too soft to be floppy (too many floppy cock jokes here) but not too firm to be painful. I usually recommend using water-based lubricants with this one- my favorite being Sutil

2. Quality: The elegant design makes me feel like I am treating my pussy like a princess that deserves quality but also functionality. While the price tag on this sucker is steep at $89.99 (plus taxes), you'd not have to buy another dildo for ages because the materials it is made out of is so luxuriously durable and sturdy for the long hall. 

3. Multiple Uses: So this can be just a basic dildo- insert into your snatch and ride like you're in the rodeo but the possibilities are infinitely more awesome then just that! It has a suction cup base so putting the dong onto a smooth surface like a wall or in the shower (so gooood) can really spice up your fun time. It is also strap-on harness compatible with the flared base and can also function as an awesome anal tool for the same reason. Furthermore, playing with this badboy with a partner can be a lot of fun too. I particularly love pairing it with either vibration onto my clit or if I want to feel really fun that day- pairing it with a vibrating butt plug

You can even make vibration carry through the toy itself by placing a bullet or whatever your favorite vibe is against the base of the toy. Wow, is that an amazing feeling! 

Criticisms:

To be honest, I have very few criticisms for this toy. I find it incredibly irritating when companies advertise that a product is water-proof and in fact is not, but also when it is so obviously water-proof because there is literally nothing inside of it. That is the case with this toy- Fun Factory is all proud that it is water-proof and it is just a single piece of well shaped, orgasm-polooza making silicone goodness- no batteries required. More of a pet-peeve then a real criticism but something to be critical about any time you are researching a sex toy. 

Otherwise, I wish it was a little long so that some of it can be used as a handle. At times it is awkward when you want to get that hard pounding happening and have to grasp onto the little base. My tiny ass hands are still not small enough to be able to get a cervix busting speed and power with the base. Though a good alternative to this problem is using a wall to bounce onto. Oh and you've got to try your coffee table too, perfect height... trust me, just clean before your guest come over next. 

Lastly, I wish the price was not as expensive only because I think everyone should have this toy but when you consider how many cheap toys you'll end up buying during the time you'd have this guy- it turns into a deal in the long-run. 

 

Overall, I love this toy and this company. They have many products that are not only beautifully made but thoughtfully shaped to what the body wants.

Top marks for this dildo! 

The stats:

  • For vaginal and anal use
  • At 18 cm it is the second largest DILDO from FUN FACTORY
  • The curved tip with a glans shape stimulates the g-spot or prostate
  • The wide base pleasures the surrounding erogenous zones and makes MAGNUM 100% safe for anal
  • Smooth surface and sleek design
  • Firm, yet pleasantly flexible silicone shaft
  • Special suction base that allows the MAGNUM to adhere to smooth surfaces and walls
  • Suitable for use with a harness
  • 100% medical-grade silicone
  • All FUN FACTORY toys are invented, developed, designed AND produced in Bremen, Germany.

Our B-Balls Experience- Review NSFW

Our B-Balls Experience- Review NSFW

It was early evening on a Sunday, and we had just come off a lovely weekend full of rest and relaxation. It was a fall day through and through, brisk wind, warm wet scotch, and comfy clothes.  After a few cocktails and records, clothes playfully littered the kitchen floor.

My wife then motioned to me she would be back in a moment, leaving me fully exposed upon the vinyl massage table- sitting in the living room, in full view of our neighbors.  She returned with a small grey box in her hand, and a big, devious, kinky smile.  It read B-Balls Anal Toy. 

I was instantly intrigued and silently nervous. She then commented on how she was worried it might be too big for her to take inside her ass. I agreed, and she smiled and said, “maybe you could?”. I smiled and said I would try. 

To give some background, we both enjoy anal play; tried prostate stimulation, fingers, tongues, and toys many times before. We enjoy both the feeling of penetration and the fullness a toy or finger can offer, when reaching orgasm. I leaned back on the massage table and with some gentle teasing and lube, I managed to insert the B Ball into my ass, taking the first of two medium-sized beads inside me. The size was perfect. Along with my wife slowly sucking my dick and tugging on the toy, it definitely had my cock rock hard and throbbing.

After a few more minutes, I slowly and more gently, slid the last bead into my ass, as it was slightly bigger than the first. My ass was now completely full. We forgot to mention the little internal balls inside each bead, that give you an altered sense of vibration, the feeling you get when using Ben Wa Balls (hence, the name).

I was immediately so aroused, I flipped my wife on her back, spread her legs, and slid my cock inside her wet, waiting pussy. Thrusting into her, sliding in and out, coupled with the sensation of a light continual vibration in my ass stimulating my prostate, had all my pistons firing.

After another 15-20 minutes of hardcore sport fucking, and the B Ball deep in my ass, my wife came incredibly hard, shaking from the intensity. She then flipped me over and began to stroke and suck my cock, in the same motion; eventually I blew my load all over. My muscles tightened activating my prostate, once again, causing an incredibly deep and satisfying release.

This one is a winner: naughty, unconventional, approachable, yet kinky. Erotic meets ergonomics and the clean up is quick and easy.

 As a couple, this toy heightened both of our orgasms in a variety of ways. The price tag is affordable and it can serve as a multi-purpose toy in any household. We would give it 2 thumbs up and 2 fingers in!  

Enthusiastically,

The Average Hoes J

 

Thank you to The Average Hoes for their sexy review of Fun Factory's anal toy the B-Balls. These anal toys can be found online and in our store today. These toys are unique for their weighted quality which moves as you do. It is also made of fantastic silicone so it is easy to clean with soap and water, and it has a smooth, pleasurable feel as it is inserted. We would also recommend using lubricant specifically made for booty play such as Sutil by Hathor or Sliquid's Sassy

Crave's Vesper Vibe Reviewed

By: Minx

Sex and fashion finally meet with the release of Vesper by Crave. Admittedly I tend to enjoy more powerful options, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand, but I was pleasantly surprised at how powerful this slim vibe was.

The Vesper
is an elegant and rechargeable toy that can be worn as a pendant necklace (with benefits!) – made from stainless steel, the Vesper looks like a luxurious piece of jewelry and is available in silver, rose gold and 24K gold. I’m not usually one to admire product packaging, but I must say the velvet storage pouch and jewelry box were quite stunning. The aesthetics of the Vesper does truly make it a unique piece; I’ve paired my silver model with a variety of outfits and received compliments about my lovely necklace *cue sneaky smile. My best friend and I were out to dinner when I told her I was wearing a sex toy for a review I was writing. Her reaction was somewhere in-between confusion and intrigue. I leaned next to her and switched on the discreet power button, her eyes lit up and she began to blush and giggle at the intensity of this little gadget. We began discussing its elegance in comparison to other toys and agreed the Vesper is a wonderful example of a non-offensive and sex-positive toy. Love the concept!

To be honest when I ordered my Vesper I was not convinced the necklace would be a substantial toy, and summed it up to be more of a novelty type item. I was wrong! The Vesper delivers deep toe curling vibrations and the motor actually heats up the entire vibe. The heating aspect quickly became one of my favorite features. I have a glass dildo that can be used for temperature play, but I never actually go through the process of running it under warm water, so this is a hassle free way for me to get that delightful warming sensation.  The shape and light-weight is ideal for localized vibration; great for clitoral and nipple play. The vibe is small and can easily be incorporated in many positions. Personally, I really enjoyed incorporating the Vesper during a blow job; using it along the shaft was great. I continued by cupping the vibe in my hand and using it around the balls and perineum while blowing him. Needless to say he had an explosive orgasm; it was super-hot and I felt like a BJ queen. On the flipside I love using the Vesper when a partner is going down on me; its slim size is undisruptive. Overall the Vesper is a wonderful addition to all sorts of play.

The Vesper is made of stainless steel which means it is non-porous. Therefore you may use any kind of lubricant (if desired) and it is very easy to clean.  The charging system is user-friendly and the Vesper has a long battery life but dies unexpectedly, so keep your charger near. It is splash proof and water-resistant, not water-proof! I wouldn’t recommend bringing it to the shower and especially not the tub. The Vesper is for external use only; it does not have a base so please do not insert this in your bum.  

I am so happy with the Vesper! I look forward to reading my readers comments and experiences with it. So please feel free to post any thoughts or questions. I would without hesitation recommend this to any person looking for a fun addition to their sex toy or jewelry box.

We-Vibe: the Rave Reviewed

By: Lilith

As toys are getting more intelligent and elegant in design no longer does a conventionally shaped sex-toy seem unique, titillating or a good investment. While the unpredictable follows with the unknown exploration of the newest toys in the industry, the pleasure can be unprecedented. The future of vibrating sex-toys is undoubtedly rechargeable, water-proof and app-controlled. We-Vibe is one such company at the forefront of innovative sex-toy technology and one of their newest products: the Rave absolutely delivers.

With a simple design that packs a fantastic rumbling punch of vibration, the Rave is great as an insertable toy. What can be really frustrating about some older toy designs is that they do not work with the anatomy of the body to achieve the goal set, especially with toys marketed as G-spot (female bodies) or prostate (male bodies) centered. Neither the g-spot nor the prostate are located straight from the entry point but rather both require a curved, bulbous head to really stimulate the respective areas. The
Rave is a toy which does have a dramatic curve built into the toy design itself so that operators do not have to stretch the opening in hopes of hitting the right spot which can be very uncomfortable and exhausting. While the Rave is marketed as a G-spot vibrator, as mentioned above, the prostate can be stimulated with the same shaped toy (just be careful to keep a firm grip on the toy for anal play). Yet really what consumers want to know about this toy is: how’s the vibration? Is it powerful? Absolutely it is powerful and has 10 different settings including a huge range of different pulsating settings that are pretty amazing. Personally, I love pulsating because it essentially takes the work out of masturbating because I don’t find you really need to move the toy much. The Rave is powerful and made from medical grade silicone making the vibrations seem a little duller then other plastic or hard rubber toys. Though I am a silicone girl at heart because I love how easy the material is to clean, its durability and its soft texture which is not abrasive on the skin.

I particularly loved the water-proof function on this toy as it is incredibly quiet so the sound of the toy doesn’t echo off of the bathroom walls and bath
time is even more fun now. The rechargeable port located just above the + on the toy closes over when it is not plugged in. I really appreciated that We-Vibe changed their charging design from past toys as I found the magnetic charging was irritatingly easy to knock off of the toy themselves. The toy also charges fairly quickly, a few hours for a full charge and holds its charge for a very long time, depending how often you use it and how high the power level is set.

 

What is truly unique about this toy is that it can be app-controlled. It is included with the
 product and the app itself is for iOS and android (free to download). I found the instructions a little confusing but figured out that for this toy, you sync with the app by holding the middle button with the toy turned off and with two buzzes from the toy, you know that you’re connected. From the app you can control the intensity, the setting or pattern used and the timing. You can even create your own vibration settings and name them too. You can also have the toy synced to two separate phones so your partner can control it with their own phone too. Now while the app application is pretty cool and made my geek happy, it isn’t necessarily needed nor do I use it often at all. Firstly, you have to sync the toy every time you want to use your app which is not overly convenient. This toy is also a handheld toy which means that you have to have one hand occupied with the toy and the other trying to play with the settings and hopefully your finger coordination is on point. I might have dropped the phone once or twice trying to check out the different settings. With toys like the We-Vibe 4 plus, the app makes sense because it is a hands-free toy (and is great as a vibrating panty!). While the app doesn’t take anything away from the Rave, it just isn’t overly necessary for regular use. Though it is nice to not have to fumble with the buttons on the toy itself while already playing, the app is not a wow factor in my opinion.  

Another feature which sets this toy apart is its asymmetrical design. I found this was great for internal stimulation because the body just kind of took hold of the toy and made it go into the right spot. While this toy can be used for external purposes on the clit (or wherever else you wanna try) and I did quite enjoy it, the asymmetrical design made it hard to keep the toy on the exact right spot without having it kind of slip off the sweet spot. This was frustrating at times but I wouldn’t say this problem makes the toy bad because it is marketed as an internal toy; it is just a bonus if it works on other places too.

Overall, I really enjoy the new edition to the We-Vibe family and I am excited to see what other toys they have in the planning. Even the other solo toy the Nova which was also newly released has gotten some very positive reviews and I just might have to try that one too! The Rave is a reasonable $149.00 + taxes in store, which considering all of the functions like being rechargeable, the app features and the 1 year warranty, the toy is a good investment and worth the extra doe. I would absolutely recommend the Rave for those looking for a classy, powerful internal vibe with a beautiful design.

Bamboo by Rocks-Off Review

By: Lilith

Originally I bought this small vibrator or what I would classify as a bullet because I wanted to test other sex toys on their ability to carry vibrations through them without actually vibrating itself. So I was beyond pleasantly surprised when I experimented with just the Bamboo and found my new best friend. For someone which vibration wasn’t that necessary for orgasm but more the friction of a textured toy, I love the Bamboo.  This bullet has quite a punch and could go toe-to-toe for rounds against any of my other toys.

Bamboo which you can buy in different colors at Wicked Wanda’s, is a unique bullet because of the precision design which allows for poignant clitoral stimulation that hits the right spot every time.  A sleek and powerful little friend that has 10 different speeds with pulsing, and powerful vibes, I love the Bamboo. This is a bullet that will make your sheets wet and your eyes roll into the back of your head.

One of my favorite things about the Bamboo is that it takes one AAA battery! No craptastic watch batteries that you can never find the replacement for in stores because the size is weird and awkward. This bullet comes with a battery and is easy to replace once your many love-fests has exhausted the juicer. Furthermore, it is made out of plastic which means that it plays nice with water-based and silicone lubes and can be stored easily in any naughty box under the bed. It is also great for solo play or with a partner because it packs enough punch to get the job done yet it is small enough that it does not interfere with other toys or a partner up in your wiggly bits.

The drawbacks… purely melts down to the size and material. This little vibe is not great for penetration because there is no real girth or texturing. It is also made out of a hard plastic material which makes it safe with various lubes but means that it does not bend and is not soft like silicone. By no means is it going to hurt because of its hard material but for those looking for something really soft or skin-like, this is not the toy for you. Lastly, while you can send vibrations through to other toys by pressing the Bamboo against them, you have to press hard and really hold it steady because the noise it makes when the vibrating cause the toys to bounce off of each other is insanely annoying and sometimes loud.

I really enjoy the Bamboo from the company Rocks-Off and you can get your own in store today for $39.99. Come by the store or order online!
