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!
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.

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.

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!

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.

There is a small but strong cultural idea that if one needs lube during sex, then someone (often the woman) is doing it wrong. Of course that is only from the heterosexual perspective but even as I work in a sex store, I still encounter people who think lube is only for when you need help. Yet, on the flipside, we sell lube like it is going out of fashion. What have some people discovered that others have not? Well I’m not one of those people who believe lube is only for those who need it, but I don’t often use it. Through my time as a sex store cleric, you grow to know the different lubricants, their purposes; texture, smell and you tend to find one that you love the most. For me that is the SUTIL Lube by Hathor.
“Hathor is the feminine principal of health, beauty, sensuality, love... eroticism. It is all the same to us. We believe that sex plays an important role in health and well-being. The Products that you purchase for sex should be as natural and healing as your facial products... and having aphrodisiacs in your facial products can only enhance your day!”
I can’t rant and rave enough about this lubricant because it hits me in all the good places: pleasurable, long-lasting, eco-friendly and Canadian. The Hathor brand was created in 1989 by Melta Swift and Nathanda Swift in Vancouver; they had specialized in plant aphrodisiacs in spa treatment products and then moved to the erotic industry with their Hathor lubricants. All of their product-line is chemical, paraben, glycerin free with botanical eco-certified ingredients. You ask what does eco-certified mean?
The Eco-cert standard
"The use of ingredients derived from renewable resources, manufactured by environmentally friendly processes." Eco-cert therefore checks: The absence of GMO, parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicon, PEG, synthetic perfumes and dyes, animal-derived ingredients (unless naturally produced by them: milk, honey, etc.) and the biodegradable or recyclable nature of packaging.”
Finding an eco-friendly and Canadian brand of lube is amazing and it helps that the lube itself is absolutely fantastic. SUTIL (pronounced subtle) is the newest of their products to come out and what makes it distinct is that it feels like silicone but is water-based. When shopping for lube, generally I recommend going with water-based because it is totally safe with toys and doesn’t stain like silicone can. That said many people find that water-based runs dry fairly quickly which can be a pain. Those looking for long-last lubricants (especially for anal) tend to go towards silicone-based lubes because they are thicker and generally longer-lasting. Yet, a lot of the good toys we get today are made with silicone, and silicone toys and lube do not play nice with each other, or more accurately, they place too nice and start to melt into each other. Like I’ve said before, a cute metaphor but bad for your toys and pocketbook. That is why I like SUTIL so much because it is totally safe with all toys and it is actually thick like advertised.
An application that I hadn’t thought of but discovered with the SUTIL lube was the pleasure of waiting. While lube can be wonderful to get the party going with a bang, what it can also do is build-up to THE BANG. For some, friction is what makes masturbation or foreplay with a partner result in an orgasm. I discovered with SUTIL that you have to enjoy the smoothness of the lube and really get the engines roaring before you can start to feel real friction with a toy or whatnot. That means that when finally ready to orgasm it is bigger and better because it wasn’t rushed. You can also use SUTIL for sensual touching on erroneous zones and it is absolutely fantastic for anal play!
I don’t have a lot of criticisms for this product and the criticisms I do have are more from a customer with a small pocketbook then the actual product itself. This lube is expensive when looking at the other options for lube. It is $24.99 for a 4oz/ 120ml bottle and does not come readily available in other sizes. There is no small tester bottle you can take home. That said the price is fairly understandable when you consider that the product is Canadian made and eco-friendly with really fine ingredients. When compared to other silicone-based lubes which range around $20.00 for the same amount, the price is pretty fair for the product received. Did I mention the bottle is 100% biodegradable?
I absolutely love this product for all kinds of sexual playing and with no real taste, there is nothing stopping you from enjoying all of your sexy times with SUTIL. This product makes my wiggly bits and my socially-conscious self very happy and I highly recommend everyone to try Hathor and specifically the SUTIL lubricant.
