Plunge PaddleThis thing HURTS.  When I first got it, I had a stroke of genius and I smacked my palm with it.  I dropped the paddle, held my hand, and walked around hunched over, while muttering insults at myself.  That’s how my first thirty seconds with the Plunge Paddle went.

Okay, so the Plunge Paddle from Tantus, is a di-ddle or a pa-ldo. It’s a paddle with a dildo for a handle. On one side you get the pain, and on the other side you get the pleasure. Or at least that’s the idea. The handle is designed to hit g-spots, p-spots, whatever kind of spot spots you can think of. The thing is, it doesn’t. Not for me. I’ve tried and tried, and still nothing. The pain I feel, the pleasure (from the dildo end), I do not.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe paddle side of the Plunge does not fuck around. It takes some experimentation before using it in play. I mean it. Smack (start softly) the side of your thigh with it. You’ll find you don’t have to rear back far, to obtain pain on naked skin. The Plunge Paddle isn’t heavy, at 7.7 oz (Jenna over at Tantus checked for me). It isn’t something to be taken lightly though. The pad of the paddle is somewhat floppy. So when you swing it, it comes forward and adds to the smack. I was able to get a few swings in, on my husband. He wasn’t all that thrilled by the idea, but when I told him I was reviewing it, he dropped trou. After a few light swings, his skin turned pink and started to swell. The same happened to me, when it was my turn. I was only able to handle about 4 medium taps before I had to take a break. After that, he did swing it harder, and as he did, it was harder to bear.

Now for the dildo end of the Plunge Paddle. It’s useless. SORRY TANTUS! I appreciate the offer, I really do. It just doesn’t work for my vagina. It’s not that I can’t/don’t get off with narrow toys. I do. The Acute? Successful. Every time. The Plunge just doesn’t have the angle that I need. It’s as though it starts to, but it’s cut short. For the paddle’s functionality, I’m grateful it’s short. For the dildo side? Yawn. Holding it on the paddle end, to use the dildo end is extremely awkward. I had to try a few different grips before I was able to comfortably hold it, and I was still left underwhelmed. The dildo as a handle is great though. It makes it extremely comfortable to hold. Whether you want to hold it with a tight grip, or lazily hold it by the ball, in between your fingers.

Here are the Plunge Paddle’s measurements:

Overall length – 13″
Paddle length – 6 1/4″
Paddle width – 3 1/8″
Paddle thickness – 1/4″
Handle length – 4 1/2″
Handle Diameter – 1 1/8″
Ball width – 1 1/4″
Ball length – 1 1/2″ (the ball is an oval shape)
Weight – 7.7oz

Plunge tagIt’s made of 100% ultra-premium silicone. Which means if you’re into blood play and have trouble finding a paddle that you can sterilize, this may be the paddle for you. If it’s not your style, Tantus has other designs available, made from the same silicone. The silicone is a smooth matte finish that has some drag to it, and is a bit of a lint magnet. It collects it to a certain extent, and then stops. I can wipe it down with a towel after cleaning it, with minimal amount of fuzz on it.  The packaging the Plunge Paddle came in was minimal to say the least. The Paddle comes with this tag, an opaque silicone tag with Tantus’ name on it, tied to the Paddle with a plastic tie.

Overall, I love having the Plunge Paddle for a paddle. As a dildo, I won’t be using it again. The shape doesn’t work for me, and the hole in the end collects whatever is in my vagina at the time. Like I said, though, I do love it as a paddle. I can get a harsh sting, if I focus on connecting with the tip of the paddle. Or I can get a strong thud when I connect with the entire paddle. It’s versatile with the types of pain, but one thing is for sure. This fucker hurts.

Thank you Tantus for sending me the Plunge Paddle, in exchange for my fair and honest review!

GV SweatshirtRisa from Good Vibrations delivered!

Risa from GV had three hoodies to send out to the first people to respond to her tweet. I was fortunate that I was on Twitter at that exact time, and I had my laptop in front of me. I know if I was on my phone, I probably would have dropped the phone or sent a tweet that didn’t look anything like a spoken language.  I’m stoked to say that it fits and that I’ll be wearing it A LOT. To top it off? Risa also threw in a slew of Überlube samples.

Thank you Risa, and thank you Good Vibrations!

PotD Lovelife Dream

It’s been a long time since I’ve used a traditional vibe. Before I really got into sex toys, a traditional vibe was the style I had for years. So, I’ve got it charged, and the strength seems promising. I was stoked to see that Risa from Good Vibrations not only sent me the Lovelife Dream, but some Überlube samples, plus a hand-written note. Call me old fashioned but I love hand-written notes. I’m terrible about writing them, but I love receiving them.

Thank you Good Vibrations for providing me with the Lovelife Dream vibe, in exchange for the fair and honest review soon to come!

PotD We-Vibe 3 & 4

When I heard that We-Vibe was coming out with We-Vibe 4, I was extremely interested. I’d never tried one of their couple’s toys. I’d only had the pleasure of using their Touch and Salsa. So when I asked to try the new We-Vibe 4, I asked to try the We-Vibe 3 to use for comparison (as well as a solo review). I was astounded when they said Yes! I’ve had the chance to try the We-Vibe 3 on, to see if it fit my anatomy, and it seems to fit nicely. Can’t wait to try them both!

Thank  you We-Vibe for providing me with the We-Vibe 3 & 4, in exchange for the fair and honest reviews soon to come!

Vanquisher silicone whipI’ve never really been one for whips, but this one caught my attention. I mean it looks like a long, silicone lily. I know, I know. It’s a whip for punishment! or something, but it’s really beautiful. Especially when it’s devoid of lint. The Vanquisher is from a Los Angeles based company that started up in ’07, called Sex and Metal. So far, I’m optimistic about their products. The silicone is sturdy and thick, while the handle is a nice girth that is comfortable to hold. I scared the crap out of my husband when I pulled it out of the box. Maybe it was the maniacal look in my eyes as I swung it around that scared him. I don’t know.

When I was told to pick out a few things to review from Sex and Metal, I knew I had to try the Vanquisher Silicone Whip. I didn’t really understand how it worked. Sure, you rear back and swing, but I didn’t understand where the pain would come from the most. It’s a rolled piece of silicone, but for some reason the physics of it didn’t add up in my mind. Did the center of the whip act as a type of soft cane? Was the pain focused only in the tip? These were questions I knew that could only be answered in person. Fortunately, Sex and Metal didn’t leave me wondering too long. I received my Vanquisher whip in a brown box that folded only the very tip of the whip. There was no tag, or anything identifying the whip. I had to refer back to my wishlist to see what I had received. When I looked at who sent it, I had no idea it was Sex and Metal. It wasn’t until I removed the brown paper in the box that I saw what it was or who it was from.

Heads up, the Vanquisher whip is a magnet for lint. I hang mine off the corner of my book case and it looks like I’ve rolled on a wool sweater. Granted, I should probably dust my room more, but this thing catches everything. Fortunately it only takes a little bit of water to wipe it away with my hands. I do love that it’s silicone, which means it can be sterilized with alcohol or bleach. That being said this makes it a safe option for blood play or if you get any kind of bodily fluids on it. Keep in mind though, that the Vanquisher is held into place by the two spikes sticking out of the side of the handle. That means that it is difficult to clean in between the folds. Though the fold do dry well when you leave it hanging up. I haven’t tried to remove the spikes to see if the silicone is removable. I figure if I use a lot of pressure and they don’t budge, then it’s not meant to happen. 

Alright, now the measurements of my  Vanquisher silicone whip. I found that my measurements varied from what Sex and Metal has on their website. Here they are:

Full length (including loop) – 26 1/2″
Silicone fall – 19 3/4″
Silicone thickness – 1/16
Handle length – 6″
Handle diameter – 1″

Vanquisher siliconeThe length of the fall works for, and against, the swing of the Vanquisher. How it works against it is that if you don’t land the tip on flesh, you’re left with a soft, ineffective blow. Fortunately your chances of landing the tip are high. It’s hard to swing the Vanquisher without the tip leaving it’s mark. It doesn’t take much force for the blows to land effectively either. I barely have to move my wrist to get a nice smack sound with a little sting. When I use my whole arm the Vanquisher leaves marks immediately. How do I know this? My husband dropped trou for me. Only for a few swings, but I was touched that he let me mark him for the sake of my review.

The weight of the Vanquisher isn’t a light whip. Not that’s hard to wield, but it can be tiring. In between swings, it’s easiest to keep the silicone pointing down since the real weight is on that end.

Whip mod 2

This allows your arm and wrist to rest. If your wrist does get tired, you could always make an upward motion with your swings that will prove to be just as effective. I wish I was able to give an actual measurement of weight, but I don’t own a scale.

To wield the Vanquisher, is to have space. Not that you need a lot, but you can’t exactly be close without some forethought of positioning. The best distance I found was from about two to three feet back. This allows for a decent swing with no guess work as to where the tip will land.

One thing that I love about the Vanquisher, is that it has a metal loop that is welded onto the handle. The loop is 1″ in diameter, which means you can hang it from a hook or use the leather loop that is provided. I like this whip, but I don’t know if I’d say I love it. The fact that you can only inflict pain with the tip makes it a one trick pony. Don’t get me wrong, the tip inflicts a great deal of pain, and the pin point effectiveness is great. I just wish that the rolled portion did more than just flop against my ass, but with the right amount of space, and a few practice swings, it’s hard to miss with that tip.

Werewolf MedAfter a failed attempt with the Wuffamute Pup, I was somewhat lack luster in trying the Werewolf Medium. I was excited, however, to see how the colors I chose would turn out. I’ve never had a glow-in-the-dark toy before. I love what they did with my color choices (fluorescent blue and glow in dark swirls on the shaft, with a glow in the dark base). In the light it looks great and in the dark, it looks even better. Now as far as the feel goes with the Werewolf, it took me a while to decide if I liked the Werewolf Medium. One day the girth of the Werewolf would be too much, and the next day it would be just enough.

The Werewolf Medium is a big’un. It’s not for the faint of vagina. Especially if you’re intention is to go for the knot. Of course that was/is my intention. I’ve been wanting to successfully use a knotted toy. Like I said, the Wuffamute Pup didn’t work out for me. The Werewolf Medium is a much better fit. The shaft isn’t too long at 6 inches, which means I CAN REACH THE KNOT. *ahem* Sorry, I’m just enthused. What’s the point if you can’t use the whole thing, right? The intention is to use the knot, and with the Werewolf, I am able to. On the days I’m not able to, I’m not able to get over the knot without pain. I will warm up with another toy, reach for the Werewolf and still nothing. I have trouble taking on the extreme width so quickly. These are rare days, but they do happen. When they do, the Werewolf is benched.

With a girth of 6″ circumference on the shaft, and with a circumference of 7.5″ on the first set of nuts, I am full. My favorite part? I’m not dealing with my cervix and the Werewolf butting heads in order to take on the awesome girth of the knot. Alright, enough about the knot. The shaft of the Werewolf is a hefty one. By itself, it doesn’t do much for me. Sure it’s a great width for me, but it’s short. So in order for it to be worth using, it has to be used in full.

Werewolf Med textureOne thing I’d like to see different about the Werewolf Medium is the texture. If you run out of lube, you know it. Immediately. I’m not expecting the lube to last forever, but if I’m low, I don’t want to feel like I’m fucking myself with squishy sand paper. Little to no lube, it’s not going to work. I have to lube myself inside and out, and the toy itself. Not a problem with a towel nearby, but not my ideal situation. I like being able to lube up a toy, throw a little on myself, and rotate the toy in. Seems to work with other toys, just not with the Werewolf. The silicone density of my Werewolf is  Medium for the shaft, and Firm for the base. There is a big difference. I love the Medium density for the shaft. I don’t think I’d be able to manage the toy in Firm. It’s not very forgiving.

On to the second set of balls. The man balls, if you will. They are appreciated. Something to hold on to, and the texture (think a cartoon drawing of wavy hair) makes it easy to hold on to when going for manual thrusting. Especially with lube on my hands. I really like to use it standing up. The toy, not me. I’ve used it with great success in the bath (easiest way for me to ride a toy). There’s no suction cup to the base. It’s completely flat. Still with the large man balls, it’s easy to hold it down with a few fingers while riding.

Successful design (for my body) aside, I am in love with the colors. I really am. This thing looks amazing, lit up. These glowing pictures are after holding the dildo under direct light for 30 seconds. The glow lasts for about a minute, and then it fades. I haven’t had a chance to really test out extended exposure to light, and the lasting time of the glow.

Werewolf light and dark

Overall, I really like the Werewolf Medium. The colors are fantastic,  and I love the swirl on the shaft. The Werewolf even comes with a cloth storage bag that fits the toy perfectly. The girth is right up my alley, and the short length allows me to actually use the knot! I’m all for body-safe silicone dildos with color and density, but this one is a heft toy and may be too much for some. If you’re a girth lover and don’t want a lot of length, I’d definitely recommend the Werewolf Medium. Just be prepared to lube up.
