Revel Body PotD

I’ve been waiting¬† for this day for a long time. Sandra over at SheVibe wrote me a few weeks ago saying that I would be sent the Revel Body to review, and that when I did, I would become a part of the SheVibe affiliate program. *Does a little dance* I’ve heard so many great things about SheVibe and they carry such a broad variety of toys, that I’ve been pining to be a part of their affiliate program. I’m impressed with the fact that they not only got me the Revel Body, but all four additional attachments as well. I’m looking forward to trying out the Revel Body to form my own opinion of it. I do have to say though, the 8 pages of DO NOT’s in the manual have me a little apprehensive. Still, we shall see how it goes. Fingers crossed!

Thank you SheVibe and True Sonic Technology, for sending me the Revel Body in exchange for a honest and fair review, soon to come.

Goodies Package

Auntie Jenna (the Auntie Mame of sex toys) over at Tantus, sent me this batch of goodies. I’ve been wanting the G-Force in bright pink to complete my Tantus handles collection, and that was the first thing I saw when I opened the package. Then the Ripple large has had me curious for months. The cock rings had/have me intimidated. Obviously I won’t be the one wearing them, but they’re HUGE. They’re the Beginner’s C-Sling and the Beginners C-Ring. The small purple one is the Super Soft C-Ring. I’m not very experienced with cock rings, so this is definitely an enlightening experience. All I have to do is break the news to my husband, that he’ll be wearing them. Coming from Tantus, I have high hopes for all of them.

Thank you Tantus for the fun toys, and thank you Auntie Jenna for picking them out for me!

Blush Novelties PotD Suko

I actually received these two weeks ago, but with all of the traveling and staying at my grandma’s (where social networks are called FaceSpace and the internet is a mystery), I wasn’t able to post it. The silicone on the Suko is extremely squishy, and I can’t wait to try it out. The anal beads, we will see how it goes. I’m a little apprehensive of the diamond shapes.

Thanks Blush Novelties for sending me these toys in exchange for a fair and honest review soon to come.

PotD duke and salve

When Walter from Tantus asked me what I’d like to review, of course I wanted to try Duke in peacock coloring. I tried to play it cool in regards to stalking my mail lady. Listening for the engine of her little Jeep, rather than running to the window every hour. Usually I wait until I get inside the house to open my packages. I couldn’t wait this time, I cracked it open as I walked back to the house. I just had to see what the peacock looked like in person. I have to say I was not disappointed. It’s beautiful. It’s hard to see but there are swirls of color in the toy. It’s an iridescent blue green. Thing is gorgeous. While waiting for the water to boil, I took Duke outside to be photographed. When I was pulling it out of the box, I noticed that Walter had thrown in Shunga Erotic Art Sensations Balm. Who doesn’t love little extras?

Thanks Tantus for sending these to me, in exchange for the fair and honest review, soon to come…

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been wanting to try a Divine Interventions toy for months now. When Nigel from Divine Interventions wrote me back I was on the edge of my seat. I told him that I’m not Catholic, but I’ve always had a love for screaming nuns. Nigel invited me to see the entire line at their booth at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco on Sept. 29th, but I won’t be able to make it this year (family reunion down in Santa Barbara). I love that Divine Interventions is located in the Bay Area. Hopefully I’ll be able to see their booth at another event soon. Perhaps Pride ’14?

Pure Wand PotD

It’s here! The long awaited Pure Wand! I’ve been listening to people RAVE about this toy for a long time, and now… now it’s MINE. I almost dropped the package when I picked it up from outside my door. I forgot about the weight. Of course, I giggled like an idiot, and skipped to the kitchen to open it. I honestly didn’t think it would get here this fast. I just placed the order on Monday, and it’s already here. That’s three days (since Monday was Labor Day). Perfect timing too, since I’m going out of town tomorrow and will be gone till Sunday night. I’m not going to be able to take it, but I’ll get time in with it before I leave. I’m thinking a bubble bath will do the trick. I just can’t get over the quality of the packaging/storage. First thing I said, when I opened the package was, “Hello Quality”.

*Also, quick warning to future owners out there. Don’t take your shirt off without a bra on when taking pics of the Pure Wand. THEY WILL SHOW UP.

PotD Cleiss Press Anal Guide & Adventurous Couples Toy Guide*click to enlarge*

When Eva from Cleis Press wrote me back about reviewing some of their books, I was elated (I love sex books). She thought The Adventurous Couple’s Guide to Sex Toys by Violet Blue, would be a great book for me/us. I wrote her back thanking her (great call on her part) and asked if I could also review Tristan Taormino’s The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women. My anal play is 99% solo, and I’m looking to change that. I’m eager to see what Tristan has to say on the matter, and what advice she has to offer.¬† I’m an avid reader, but I haven’t bought any sex related books in a long time. Usually because I never know where to start. I love that Eva got me pointed in the right direction.

I can never shut up about great shipping. She and I talked on Wednesday about the books, and they were sent out the same day. I was surprised to find them in my mail box today (Saturday). I figured I’d be getting them on Monday. I love it when companies are based here, in California.

Thanks Cleis Press for the books! I look forward to reading and reviewing them!

PotD Touch

The Touch from We-Vibe actually got here yesterday. Earlier in the week, I got an email back from We-Vibe saying that they were sending me the Touch to review. Always a HUGE boost to any sex toy reviewer. One, that they answered back, and two, they answered back with great news!

.
When I don’t have a tracking number, I always try to play it cool on the way to the mailbox. I tell myself “I bet it didn’t come today. It’ll probably get here next week. It’s all good. It’ll get here, when it gets here.” Basically I was trying to squash my excitement, because I hate getting to the mailbox with high hopes and there be nothing in there. Well, yesterday I talked myself out of getting giddy, opened the mail box, and sighed. I love being surprised by shipping. It seems like a small thing to most, but for me, it’s a big deal.

I’ve only gotten to play around with it a little bit, but I’m looking forward to putting the Touch to the test.

.

Thank you We-Vibe for providing me with this Touch, in exchange for the fair and honest review soon to come.

TracyCox POTD with pkgingI’m not lying when I say my package from Lovehoney turned my day around. I was stressed about finding bills in the mail, but the weight of my international package counteracted it. I almost didn’t check the mail because I couldn’t see if it had come yet. Usually I can see if the package door is open or shut from my house, but someone recently lost a cat, and thought it would be smart to cover the community mail box with fliers. I’m glad I did check. Something about glass toys makes me feel so elegant. Silicone toys you can like, but you have to use them to really fall for them. Glass can suck you in, with just their looks alone. So we’ll see how these ones do in practice.

Thanks Lovehoney for such lovely toys to review!

Like the looks of these glass dildos? You can get them at Lovehoney.

Ella*click to enlarge*

I checked my tracking number to see if Ella had finally been delivered (it shipped Thursday from a place 2 hours away), and I was surprised that it had. I had hoped it would be delivered later rather than sooner, as I had just put on a mud mask. I’m not a patient woman, and have very little shame, especially when it comes to my toys. So I threw on my sandals and strut down the street to retrieve my long awaited Ella.
