It wasn’t so long ago that the first Womanizer revolutionised the sex toy sector. During those ‘what’s your favourite sex toy?’ chats with other women in the personal pleasure industry, it was often cited as the best. They were referring to its amazing ability to use air-pressure to provoke fast, intense orgasms.
The first Womanizer wasn’t perfect though. It looked a little like an ear thermometer. But, hey, no one was actually looking at it during a session of self-pleasure. It also made too much noise. Excessive sex toy volume can be seriously off-putting if you use it with a partner. But – more importantly – you can’t use it if you’re living in a shared apartment or with your parents and not have to worry about the noise. The first Womanizer wasn’t waterproof either, so you couldn’t enjoy it in the bath or shower.
When I saw Uberrime dildos on social media, I was in awe of how strikingly beautiful they were. I must admit that I usually find the majority of realistic dildos come off as quite vulgar and lewd but the celebration of colours in these dildos makes them seem beautiful, fascinating and collectable.
This Gplug Bioskin, used in combination with Gring – both from GVibe – is the perfect way to ease myself back into my routine and facilitate my mission to raise orgasmic awareness.
Gplug Bioskin is an extra soft – ergonomically designed – rechargeable vibrating butt plug. It can be used manually or with Gring acting as a compatible remote control.
Gring is the standard remote control device for several GVibe products that must be purchased separately. As it fits snugly on your finger and vibrates, it can be used as a clitoral stimulator in its own right while you control another toy. Used this way, you’ll never run the risk of losing your remote control again.
When I received the Stronic Surf from Fun Factory, it made me realise just how grateful I am to live close to the sea. I say this even in spite of the fact that now is not the best time to enjoy it. In fact, I don’t even have to leave my apartment to get a taste of surfing fever.
The Womanizer is a powerful clitoral stimulator that uses Pleasure Air Technology. In other words, it stimulates the clitoris without actually being in contact with it.
This new Womanizer Premium has a new, more ergonomic, shape and it has two new features:
‘Autopilot’ and ‘Smart Silence.’
The Womanizer Starlet is ideally suited to be used as an entry-level sex toy. It is perfect for those women with no previous experience with personal pleasure products. For those otherwise experienced consumers who have never tried a suction toy and who want Womanizer quality at an affordable price, Starlet comes highly recommended. It fits neatly into the palm of your hand and offers 4 levels of intensity.
my current male squeeze wasn’t up for engaging in any directed anal explorations. I found it impossible to find a replacement and the clock was ticking on this review. Then, when Svakom informed me that The Vick is also ideal for G-spot stimulation, I sighed with relief. The test would be much more straightforward than I‘d anticipated even though I’d have to compromise on my male anal-play fantasies.
Vick is ideal for stimulating the prostate gland and the perineum in men.
It is perfect for providing high-quality clitoral and G-spot stimulation for women.
I’ve been reviewing sex toys since 2013. In all of that time, I’ve tested and accumulated a significant array of personal pleasure products. In fact, according to my last inventory, my sex toy collection is rapidly approaching the figure of 500 distinct pieces. My selection is growing all the time. I try my best to be a minimalist in most avenues of my life but that doesn’t seem to halt the expansion of my collection into more corners of my apartment. Despite the quantity and variety of these products, anal toys are a category that I simply hadn’t explored.
So, how does Sola Sync stand out from my other wand massagers?
Well, the curved handle not only makes it distinctive but its impressive length makes it perfect for solo massage. Moreover, Sola Sync Wand Massager is unusually light for this type of toy, which means your arm won’t start aching too soon.
The remote control makes it the perfect choice for some creative couple’s play. I must admit that I didn’t quite see the point of this little extra at first but then I had an idea
In fact, when I discovered the best male masturbators in 2018, I couldn’t believe how advanced male sex toys had become and how sophisticated their pleasure offering was. I almost wished that I could test them myself. When I studied psychology briefly at university, I dismissed Freud’s theories relating to ‘penis envy’. They were pure codswallop, or so I convinced myself. But now, after gaining a fuller appreciation of the impressively diverse male masturbatory sex toy offering, I can see that he might have had a point, no pun intended.
I honestly believe that the secret to happiness is gratitude. When I received this Womanizer InsideOut, it made me feel even more fortunate to have my current professional status. I’m constantly receiving new – and highly impressive – pleasure products. So, when a particular piece of packaging stands out, it can make me feel even more aware of what I should be thankful for. It’s not something I take for granted, I’m truly grateful for each and every collaboration and every associated orgasm that allows me to maintain this lifestyle.
Sola Cue As I raise my vibration in order to reach enlightenment, I'm becoming increasingly concerned about my non-sex toy vibration. Let me explain. Everything works on its own level of vibration. Not just my sex toy collection. Feelings of guilt and shame are low...
I must admit, that when I received the G Vibe 2 vibrator and saw its unusual shape, I wondered if it would work for me. Then, after studying it, I understood just how many different ways there were to enjoy it.
It’s a vibrator with a shaft that splits into two distinct points. Imagine a pair of very flexible tongues with motors in their tips. There is also another powerful motor located in the base of the shaft. I studied the accompanying leaflet that included drawings of some suggested uses and decided to try all the solo female options. If I’d been masturbating at my old rate, I would have completed all the tests in one day. At my current pace, it took longer and lasted longer. With every variation, I had much more than an ordinary orgasm in mind.
Peepshow Toys sent me two Nocturnal Lipstick Vibes from Blush Novelties. This was ‘because we couldn’t decide which colour to send.’ The prospect thrilled me, needless to say. I was understandably happy about having one for myself because of the pleasure it was going to give me. I was just as thrilled to have a spare one because I could choose someone to give it to. This would be great for my karma. I would be gifting someone high-quality orgasms. It was gratifying to imagine that pleasure coming back to me ten-fold, sometime in the future. I enjoyed a special tingle as I wondered how and when that returning energy would manifest itself.
I received Stronic Real about a month ago. At the moment I’m becoming inundated with deliveries of similarly sized boxes; they all contain new sex toys for me to unbox, test and review. I must confess that Stronic Real was still part of an unsteady stack of deliveries and it wasn’t until I had to try it out on behalf of Peepshow Toys that I gave it my full, and undivided, attention. Foolishly, I assumed it was just another phallus-shaped toy. How different from the others could it possibly be?
I recently received these Magnetic Geisha Balls from G Vibe to review. I was thrilled by the opportunity to strengthen my PC muscles even more. I love small, heavy, weights to train with and these are ideal for that purpose.
There are seven different weight combinations available, which means Magnetic Geisha Balls from G Vibe are an ideal progressive exerciser. This avoids the prospect of having to invest in another product as your strength increases. Magnetic Geisha balls are ideally suited to all levels, from beginners to advanced.
The Thruster is a handheld sex machine designed by aerospace engineers, which means it’s guaranteed to provide you with an out-of-this-world experience. The Thruster is ideal for those times when you crave penetration but there’s no one around to oblige.
‘I can’t stop thinking about an older man.’ I confessed. My friend raised his eyebrows in disbelief. ‘But much older than you. A man in his eighties.’ I specified. My friend burst out laughing, not quite believing what he was hearing. But I didn’t. I was being very serious, so I decided to elaborate. His age and experience not only accentuate my youth and beauty, but he also makes my clitoris throb uncontrollably. His formal nature that is typical of his generation is a total turn on. But I want to encourage him to forget the formality and do what he has always craved and never dared to do.
Although I’m single, choosing a suitable candidate with which to test couples toys is always a challenge. When it comes to vibrating eggs, however, that isn’t the case. I can hand the remote control device to anyone. That’s precisely what I did with this wireless vibrating egg from Odeco, available at IMO Toys. It can be worn discretely in public while the controller can be pressed by any number of random fingers. Those digits can be attached to individuals whom I don’t have to be intimate with.
When Zemalia invited me to choose a product of theirs to test, there really was no doubt. As soon as I saw the Venus vibrator, I knew that it had to be mine. Besides, Zemalia obviously had good taste; giving something a good name must mean that it’s a good product.
I chose the name Venus for myself for several reasons. At first, it was because I always felt like a Venus. I studied fine art as a teenager and when I discovered the image of the pale-skinned, redheaded, Renaissance Venus, it made me wonder if I’d been born a few centuries too late. The generic, plastic, porn-look was beginning to gain popularity at the same time and that was something that I’ve never wanted to emulate. I’ve always been a fan and a proponent of natural beauty.
