The Magic Banana. On first look it seems like the furthest thing away from a sex toy or Kegel training device, more like a bike lock or a miniature version of a Pilates band. But a sex toy and Kegel training device is what it is; coined a self-exploration tool by its designer and creator, yoga educator, Janeson Rayne.

Designed in Canada and manufactured in the UK this product is manufactured ethically with 100% body-safe, medical grade components and materials. Thirty years of research went in to creating this sexual exploration tool. The banana has been designed and crafted to conform to the inner contours of a woman's body, which, probably like me you assumed to be shaped similar to a phallic mold. In which case, why is the banana shaped like a bike lock? Well, as it turns out, the inner workings of a woman are more similarly shaped to a cul-de-sac, hence the shape of this multi-functional toy. Which kind of makes you think... who's been designing these phallic shaped objects supposedly manufactured for a woman's pleasure?? Men?? The banana is attempting to break the mould when it comes to women's sex toys and genital well-being, designed by a woman for women, with the ability not only to provide sexual satisfaction and g-spot exploration but also develop and/or rehabilitate Kegel and pelvic floor muscles.

So how exactly does one use an object that looks similar to a bike lock as a sexual exploration tool?

Begin with the banana in a concave, smiling direction with the tip facing up towards the belly button. Using the black end as a handle, gently squeeze the loop together before inserting. A water-based lubricant is recommended to aid with insertion and for cleaning afterwards a simple combination of gentle soap and warm water or a basic toy cleaner will work.

So my first interaction with the banana was to attempt to use the tool for Kegel exercising. Developing Kegel muscles can have an astonishing effect on a woman's sexual well-being, helping in preparation for and in the recovery of child birth, the release of lower back pain and in the recovery from and prevention of incontinence as well as the improvement of orgasms. The Magic Banana can be used in two separate ways to develop Kegel muscles – automatic and non-automatic. For women with lesser pelvic floor and Kegel strength and/or less experience with Kegel exercising I would recommend starting with automatic Kegels: start by inserting the banana as explained above and slowly move the banana in an in-out motion. As you move the banana in this motion the band will automatically push out onto the inner wall of your vagina facilitating automatic muscle contraction and release. In time you will learn how to manÒuvre these automatic contractions into purposeful ones. The non-automatic Kegels are slightly harder to master, but I implore you to commit some time to getting a hang on them: insert the banana and use your lower abs and Kegel strength to squeeze and release without holding onto the banana. As you contract the muscles against the band you will notice the band move inward and as you release the band will automatically expand inching its way outward and in reaction your body will feel the need to contract once again, forming a rhythm. As you get more skilled at this (and trust me it is a skill) you can start to work on the wider parts of the loop.

As you can guess, moving an object shaped to fit your inner self in a sexual rhythm does indeed come with perks other than muscular strengthening and does provide a certain degree of bonus pleasure – much more than expected from such an oddly shaped toy. The smiling orientation of the banana provides the perfect shape for g-spot exploration. And girls, for any of you out there struggling with g-spot orgasms this toy is for you! The g-spot is located about two inches inside the vagina and using the banana in a smiling direction facing up towards your belly button, learn to explore the rhythms and motions that you enjoy and your g-spot reacts to. And, for a handy tip, try using it with some clitoral stimulation like a bullet vibe – I promise you an orgasm like no other!

Using the Magic Banana with a bullet vibe, for a body shaking g-spot orgasm, after doing my Kegels, is my favorite way to use the toy and puts a happy ending onto my lazy girl work out. Personally I've never been so motivated to orgasss... mmm, I mean do my Kegels. At first, you'll feel like you've done a full lower abdominal work out the day after. The banana seems to have a knack of taking the guess work out of Kegel exercising, prompting automatic isolation of the muscles. In fact the banana is so good at developing Kegel strength that it has proved extremely effective in reversing female incontinence and as I cannot stress enough, giving women the ability to achieve full g-spot orgasms!

Overall, I'm completely sold on the very magic banana and I'm not the only one, it seems that this magical little tool is growing and growing in popularity, achieving publicity and endorsements from Glamour and Shape magazine and both Ricki Lake and even Oprah (which of course means it's going to be an instant hit). The only down side to the toy, other than the lack of a case or fruit basket to keep it in, seems to be the time it takes to get used to a toy so alien looking. But trust me girls, it is so worth it! I promise! And if I've learnt anything from testing this product it is that not every girl needs a someone, but every girl needs a Magic Banana.

Review - Tango by WeVibe™

By: Fawn

Petite, pretty and powerful. Tango by We-Vibe™ is a discreet mini-vibrator that proves good things do come in small packages. Small yet mighty, Tango delivers deep, rumbling vibrations right where you want them.

Tango by We-Vibe™

 

The most powerful mini-vibe? I’m here to find out!

Tango by We-Vibe™ Highlighted Features:

- Small, discreet, compact

- Take powerful pleasure anywhere

- Tapered tip offers pinpoint focus where you want it, while the flat edge can be used for a more generic all-over massage.Order through Wicked Wanda's Today!

- Can be used on its own or attached to your favourite vibe-compatible product!

 

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.

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.

Review - SUTIL by Hathor - Best Lube Ever?

Review - SUTIL by Hathor - Best Lube Ever?

By: Lilith

Get Your SUTIL in Store or online Today!

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!”

Melta Swift

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.

Review: Magic Banana

Review: Magic Banana

By: Jasmine Aziz

The Magic Banana can be found at Wicked Wanda's Adult Emporium right now! Get yours Today!

It’s January. Turn on the television, look at your Facebook feed or scroll through Twitter and you will be bombarded by ads promising weight loss. As I sit and stare at the button on my pants that looks like it is straining to break free from its thread and shoot across the room, I think to myself, “Gee, I best get back to the gym too”.

But let me offer this suggestion for exercise while others are commending the benefits of strength training, yoga and Pilates: Kegel muscle exercises. All you need for this is one “Magic Banana” and the desire to improve the pelvic floor of your vagina. Why, you might ask, would you want to do strength training for these muscles? Well, because as a woman there is a chance that after having a baby or just simply by virtue of your body getting older, these muscles become relaxed and loose needing toning. One minute you’re laughing at something, the next thing you’re peeing at the same time and trust me – it isn’t that funny.

If you’re wondering how to isolate the muscle, the next time you pee (er, urinate), stop the flow a few seconds in, start again, then stop. Your neighbour in the next stall might think you have bladder issues or are waiting for them to leave before you unleash your 7-11 slushie, but that will give you an idea of what the muscle feels like when it is contracting.

You can choose to do these contractions just about anywhere – at a bus stop, in the car, at your desk at work, sitting across from your in-laws at Sunday dinner or while you are standing at the sink doing your dishes (yes, I don’t have a dishwasher). The recommended time is 10 – 15 contractions three to four times a day. But if you’re like me, you’ll forget after the first session and become distracted by fourteen zillion other things that you need to do in one day and suddenly you aren’t getting in enough repetitions to really make a difference. But what if there was a “toy” that could help you with the excercise? What if there was something that you could insert into the vagina and squeeze like a tension ball training your muscles to contract on it? Well it does exist!

Exercising with the “Magic Banana” will not only improve the strength of the pelvic floor but also allow you to control the muscle at will giving you complete and utter power over your pelvis. And though it may look ridiculous to you at first, and slightly daunting, it is an item that will change the way you exercise this muscle and potentially vastly improve your sex life!

Allow me to paint a picture for you of what can happen if you take the time to properly excercise and strengthen this muscle…

I had been with Lamby for just over a year. He took a job in Mississauga so our previously long distance relationship from Ottawa to Montreal turned into a longer relationship Ottawa to Toronto. I had been selling vibrators for almost a year and started to use one of the beaded toys to help me isolate the Kegel muscles around it and improve my control. Consider it my crude substitute for the brilliance that would become the “Magic Banana”.

Lamby and I had spent a month apart. In that time, along with using the toy, I would exercise the muscle while sitting at a table writing recaps for my sales or while I sorted my vibrator bags and opened new stock. I felt as tight and in control as I had heard the pretty girls who took ballet were when I was in University. It was the stuff of legends.

We decided to meet half way in Kingston at the Days Inn to rekindle our love. Feeling particularly playful, I said to the nice man James at the front desk, “I just paid $50 for this guy here. I’m not from around these parts so can you tell me if that is a fair price?” To Lamby’s credit, he simply smiled quietly and waited for James’ reaction as I did.

“Excuse me, ma’am?”

“I said I paid $50 for him. I’m not sure if that was a good price.” James looked from me to Lamby and then back at me again. His expression looked at once nervous, scared and skeptical. He quickly handed me our room key and pointed me in the direction of the back lot where we could park without saying another word.

Lamby laughed in the parking lot. “I don’t think James understood your sense of humour”. It was those moments, when he let me be myself and seemed to really enjoy my sense of humour, that I liked him best. Later in the room, while we were having sex I decided to work my strong new muscles to the sheer delight and orgasmic joy of both of us. The sex was so intense and incredible that I screamed louder than air raid siren and hooted like my sports team had just won the big game.

A half hour later we were in the shower together the phone started to ring. “Who could be calling us?” I asked him. “I don’t know anyone here, do you?” he asked. He exited the shower while I tried to listen over the down pouring of water. As I towelled off he came into the bathroom, his chest puffed up like a peacock.

“Who was it on the phone?”

“It was James,” he said, his smile wider than any other time I had ever seen it. “He called to see if everything was okay in here.”

“You mean he heard me screaming?”

“Yup!” Lamby said with pride. “I made my woman scream so loud that they could hear her all the way at the front desk!”

I was mortified for hours! I contemplated every way I could to get out of the hotel without anyone seeing us until I finally came to the resolution that we were two consenting adults and that we hadn’t done anything wrong. So what if I was a bit loud? It was some of the best sex I had ever had and I had worked hard for a month on the muscle that helped me improve the experience. I earned every one of those throaty moans and orgasmic yelps of bliss.

At the restaurant the server came over, handed us our menus and then asked if we wanted anything to drink. I rubbed my throat and said, “As a matter of fact, I am a bit parched” to which he replied, “I’ll bet you are” and gave me the strangest look. It wasn’t until I saw him chatting with James from the front desk that I realized we were the talk of the hotel. Lamby sat back when he made the same realization, his chest puffed up and proud again while I slunk so low in the booth that I almost fell off the bench.

And this kind of improvement was done before I even knew about the “Magic Banana”! It just goes to show the magnitude of the results that can happen when you properly exercise and strengthen this muscle. When this muscle is strong, some women experience more intense orgasms due to increased blood flow to the area. Their partners will also enjoy the internal massage they receive on their penis and self-play will also be enhanced as increased control can be applied to any vibrator or dildo.

The “Magic Banana” makes the workout easy and allows you to focus your attention on expanding and contracting around the loop just as you would a resistance band for regular strength training. Use a good water based lubricant when you insert the toy and be sure to clean it with sex toy cleaner and let it air dry before your next use.

The other MAJOR advantage to this toy is that it stimulates the G-spot (oh yes, it does exist!)! If you’re wondering where that spot is, simply insert your finger into the vagina and crook it towards the outside wall (below the belly button) and then motion as though you were saying, “Come here, come here”. Don’t actually say “Come here, come here” because someone walking by might here you and interrupt you while you are sexploring ;) At first, stimulating this area will make you feel as though you are going to pee, but once you get past that feeling, you will slip into a wonderous stratosphere above that sensation that is the direct road to the kind of orgasm that will have you smiling – and possibly changing the sheets – all day long!

The “Magic Banana” can be gently twirled inside the vaginal cavity so that it brushes over the G-spot – a super lovely freaky feeling – and if you feel adventurous, you can add clitoral stimulation at the same time to ensure a greater chance of a soak-sational sensation!

This may not seem on the surface like the most fun of all the toys one can own in a sex trunk, but it is one that will not only improve the quality of your sex life but will also improve your sexual health. Pick up the “Magic Banana” at Wicked Wanda‰Û÷s and start your New Year’s resolution for improved health and wellness with an exercise you can’t do in the gym – unless they are SUPER progressive – but one that will give you benefits for years and year to cum. Er, come.

It isn’t a banana, that’s for sure. Is it magic? I don’t know about that. One thing’s for sure though, if you use the “Magic Banana”, the next time you have a big laugh, you won’t pee yourself too. And I don’t know about you, but I find that….very ap-peel-ing.
