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.

Review- Touch by WeVibe™

By: Lilith

Power, precision and a pretty toy are exactly what you are in for when trying out WeVibe’s Touch. This little purple vibrator is top of the line quality because of its classy size and shape, quietness and wiggly bit’s approved power. WeVibe is a Ottawa founded company that has gain world renown for their couple’s toy but for solo play they also bring high quality finesse to their rechargeable beasts.

My first impressions were largely based off of the name brand itself. Through my experience as a sexstore employee the age-old saying that “you get what you pay for” is glaringly true. While there are many good vibrators out there that are cheaper, the likelihood they will last and have the desired amount of power is a tossup. Once you get in the habit of buying a new vibrator every 6 months to a year, it gets expensive real fast with the cheap toys. Once I found out how much I enjoyed vibrations for clit play, the obvious choice was to upgrade as soon as possible to a toy that will last. A big part of long-lasting toys is also what kind of battery they take. Frankly, if your toy takes weird batteries or god-forbid watch batteries, throw and run away quickly. Watch batteries are the devil when it comes to sex toys and frankly the cost of batteries and the amount that they leak into your toys is not worth sticking to them. We usually recommend getting into the habit of taking out your batteries from vibrators between uses to help avoid battery leakage into your toy. Rechargeable is the way to go now with sex toys. That is why I like the Touch so much because it is USB rechargeable and thus never having to worry about batteries. You get about two hours of play from a single charge that takes about 90 minutes to fill up full and the toy flashes an orange light when the battery is low.

I’m also a huge fan of silicone toys and especially high-grade silicone because it is silky-soft and cuts down on the noise of the toy. Toys like the Touch are also fantastic for cleaning because simply soap and water works well or toy cleaner if you already have some. Furthermore, the Touch is waterproof, and very enjoyable in the shower. Of course, silicone is great but what about power? This little guy is mind-blowing powerful. With 8 different speeds including pulsating, you can pick your favorites and what’s better is that whatever setting you turned it off on (presumably your favorite one) when you go to use it again, it is still on that setting. No clicking through to find your tried and true favorite. While the power levels can be soft to start the buildup, when you are ready for real vibration that rocks your socks off the Touch abides.

The shape of the Touch is also unique but incredibly smart as it curves to your hand whether for solo play or with a partner. It also isn’t too big to get in the way of enjoying other activities down-below. Furthermore, because of its great pointed end, the vibrations go directly onto the clit rather than all around. Having that focused power allows for longer play and more intense clit orgasms. This is why bullet vibrators are so popular because they are simple and straight to the point.

Overall this toy is fantastic and I would recommend it for every womyn. At the cost of $129.00 + taxes, it is affordable for a rechargeable toy with a 1 year warranty and panty dropping power. While this toy is amazing for many reasons there are of course downsides like any toy. Largely my beef with this toy is about the way it charges. While rechargeable is amazing, it is not very common to see people recharging their toys on their computer desk and that is what you have to do unless you have an adapter. Touch is USB rechargeable but does not come with a wall plug adapter. That said, it is very easy to get an adapter at the dollar store. I actually use my Iphone charging adapter so the problem is fairly easily solved. My only other criticism of this toy is that the charging prongs that are magnetized to attach to the toy is not very strong so it is easy for the cord to be knocked off and the charging to stop. Definitely want to keep it out-of-the-way as it charges to make sure the cord stays in place.

Otherwise, this toy is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys clit vibrations. This is not a penetrative toy because of its shape and small size. Try this toy out today, come by Wicked Wanda’s to talk to our knowledgeable staff and to see if the Touch can be your new best friend.
