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

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!

My Newest Bedroom And Travel Essential

Every woman has GOT to have her go-to mini vibe, whether it be the ones shaped as lipsticks that you can keep in your purse, or the classic mini-egg vibes that you keep in the nearest drawer to your bed. The one downfall is this: How many of these have you owned so far? I bet many. Although practical and versatile, most of them don’t last very long. The Tango by We-Vibe™ is a game changer. Available in pink or blue for $99.00 from Wicked Wanda’s, you get a one-year warrantee included; this li’l dude is definitely worth the investment. Not only is it THE most powerful mini vibe I’ve encountered so far, it’s also quiet, rechargeable AND waterproof.

 

With summer here, i’ve been traveling a lot, especially by plane to visit some family. This lil buddy has been so discreet and loyal to my needs, which I admit, are usually put on the side burner during travel time. I often travel by plane with only a carry on and i’ll admit, I leave my dildos at home out of fear of having my personal items inspected publicly at the airport security checkpoint. The Tango was brought through 3 different airports without any questioning! It’s also extremely quiet for the amount of power it offers, which is great if you’re living with roommates or simply wanting discretion.

 

The tapered tip is awesome because it allows you to vary from general massage to very pinpointed vibrations.

 

By comparing it to the classic vibrating eggs, there are just so many features that makes the WeVibe Tango a gazillion times better. For one, there are a variety of vibration strengths and patterns for different moods and preferences. The button at the base is easy to push and allows you to find the perfect setting and intensity. It also frees you of the wired controller that came with the classic egg vibe. YAY! Oh, and did I mention it’s 100% waterproof?

Downsides

Proof that nothing is perfect. This lil champion has a downside. It’s not horrible, but it can be pretty embarrassing under certain circumstances. Being waterproof, my first Tango experience in the shower was interrupted when I dropped it onto my bath’s porcelain bottom. Not only did it go from extremely quiet to VERY LOUD, it took off on me and bounced around everywhere, which to most would probably look pretty hilarious, almost cartoon-like. However, if you have people in the next room, this would definitely require some explanation upon exiting the bathroom. My suggestion? Avoid having soapy hands and perhaps opt for a bath instead of a stand-up shower.

 

The other downside would be the very wobbly magnetic adapter that attaches to the toy itself and connects it to the USB cable. The magnet itself could be stronger, therefore it can easily disconnect. Try charging it on a high shelf.

 

 “The most powerful mini-vibe” ?

Hands down. YES. Yes yes and ooooh… yes.. Seriously. Trust me on this one. You will not be disappointed.

Fawn

 

You can also buy the Tango with the most powerful couples toy the WeVibe 4 Plus! The Passionate Play Kit is a fantastic value! $219.00 + taxes In Store only!

Review- Touch by WeVibe™

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.
