No 10 vibrationsIt’s beautiful, and that’s all it has to offer. I love the color scheme of the Ceramix No. 10 from Pipedreams. I think it’s wonderful that they are trying to bring ceramic sex toys to the masses, but they need to bring stronger vibrations to the mix. Ceramic toys sealed with a body-safe glaze, are safe to use. You need to be careful not to chip it, as ceramic (unsealed) is extremely porous and absorbent, not to mention possibly sharp. However, it’s going to be extremely difficult to chip a Pipedreams Ceramix, as they use a high fire glaze with yttrium within in the ceramic; the same as jewelers use.

This is not a small vibrator; in fact it’s quite large for a traditional design. It’s heavy, and doesn’t transmit the vibrations you hear at all. It’s loud, and the sound is very misleading. It sounds like strong vibrator but feels like that same vibrator wrapped in a down comforter. The vibrations are lacking in power and boring. The picture you see above, was extremely hard to take. When placing the vibe in the water, it only rippled the surface for the first three seconds. After those three seconds, the water looks extremely still.

No 10 vibrations 2

The button is made of silicone, as is the area where the removable end meets the ceramic. From there up, the end is plastic. There are 6 different settings. The first three are different strengths and the other three are different vibration patterns. The first three patterns are underwhelming; the one I tried the most was the third and strongest. I tried letting the vibrations carry me something resembling an orgasm; that didn’t work. So, I tried reaching into the “Sure Thing” folder of my Spank Bank, and still nothing. My wrist was sore from trying to add pressure, I tried holding it lightly on my clit; this vibe did nothing. I admit the past year of reviewing has given me an acquired taste for strong vibrations, but I have still used weak vibes out of pure necessity (i.e. all powerful vibes are dead) and have had success. I didn’t with the No. 10; not even close. Also, the the only way to turn the No. 10 off, is by cycling through all of the settings. You are not able to turn it off by holding down the button, as you are able to do with a number of other vibrators. So, if you are in a hurry to turn off your No. 10, you have to hurriedly cycle through to the off setting.

The No. 10 is powered by 4 AAA batteries; another thing I’m not a fan of. Not simply because disposable battery powered vibes tend to be less powerful and are wasteful, but because twisting the end off and on can have differing results. Sound confusing? What I mean is that when you twist the end back on, with the batteries in it, it can be a challenge to find the sweet spot for it to turn on. If you don’t hit this “sweet spot”, the vibe won’t turn on at all. This leaves me feeling like it isn’t tight enough, when I have to twist backward from the tightest it will go. Every time I put batteries in it, I have to go through this (I don’t leave batteries in the toy because I don’t want them to corrode).

Ceramix No 10

The color scheme is beautiful. The light blue with black stripes is something to be admired, but what good does a pretty vibe do me if it doesn’t get me off? I think if  Pipedreams had used a stronger motor this would be a great vibe. The ceramic is a great alternative.  It does retain my body heat and will hold it for little while. Don’t be mistaken, it’s not like stainless steel toys. Those pick up heat quick and hold it for a long time. This holds lukewarm and cool temperatures for a shorter amount of time. Before I forget, I want to be clear about the coloring. This isn’t a uniform color scheme. Each stripe is different. I don’t know if they are hand painted or if they just stick in a machine and a brush makes its rounds. I like it because it reminds me of ceramic pieces I made years ago. Again, though, this is not a reason to buy a toy, function is.

I’m not impressed with the Ceramix No. 10 at all. I like the colors and I appreciate their attempt to make a ceramic vibrator, but colors and a “new” material design doesn’t get me off. It is waterproof, but it does take disposable (or rechargeable if you have them) batteries. The No. 10 lacks the power needed to warrant a tradition design. If a traditional design has a powerful vibration, I’d be all over it. This one does not, but I guess I can say that I have a nice ceramic piece. As sitting on a shelf, is all it’s going to be doing.

I have two versions of the Revel Body; the first and second version. The first version I received was quickly deemed obsolete and a second version came out soon after. The first version was extremely weak, and the instruction manual was ridiculous. It had 8 pages of warnings; such as “Don’t use on loose skin.” That one made me crack up to be honest. This warning is gone from the second versions instruction manual, thank goodness.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

When I opened the package with the Revel Body, and saw that they included all of the attachments, I was eager to see how it would play out. All of the attachments are extremely different in shape. All of them are covered in pink, buttery smooth silicone, and all of them have extremely strong magnets in the bases. I was quick to take a Package of the Day picture, and get the Revel  Body on the charger. I wanted to see how this baseball vibrator worked.

revel vibrations

After I charged the Revel Body, I went through the cycles. They range from a thumping piston-like movement to standing still while humming. The Revel Body’s technology moves the magnet attachments up and down within the orb, this is caused by the linear motor (i.e. magnet motor). The range starts slow,  moving the attachment up and down the most. As you ascend the levels, the attachment moves faster, with less range. When you reach the highest level, movement is non-existent and it sounds like a hearing test. The levels of intensity are as follows: 1) Oh, look! It’s moving! 2) Still moving, and sounds like a boat motor. 3) It’s moving less but it’s faster. 4) Okay, that faster, but where did the motion go? 5) Is this going down in intensity? 6)Am I pressing the wrong button? 7) Is this thing even on? I hear it, but I’m not feeling it. Weird. 8-10) All I hear is the pitch of the motor going up, and the attachment isn’t even moving anymore. What the hell?

First off, I don’t like it, care for it, have interest in using it again after this review, and you won’t hear me suggesting it. I’ve had the Revel Body for quite awhile now, and during that time I’ve found that the Revel Body just doesn’t work for my body. Every time I’ve used it, I have used all of the attachments, with all of the speeds, with lube, without lube (there are no patterns). Every time, I am left with nothing. I’ve tried using it lightly on my clit (as suggested), I’ve used pressure. Nothing. Don’t get me wrong, the vibrations definitely vary between thumping to non-existent, but that’s about it. The website says to hold the Revel Body lightly against the skin. Um, why would I want a toy that can’t hold up its movement under the pressure of its own weight? I used no pressure, just the weight of the Revel Body, and that took a lot of the sensation away. Holding it away from my clit, left me feeling nothing as well. Like I said, I’ve used all of the attachments, and still nothing. I did, however, figure out that the attachments will make great magnets on my fridge.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe first attachment comes standard with the Revel Body, it’s called the “Rose”. Its shape reminds me of a powder puff, only super small. Its silicone is buttery soft, but has very little give to it. When in use, this attachment does nothing for me. It’s too broad, and to be honest, in the beginning I was worried about bits of flesh being caught with in the Revel Body (remember the warning from the first version?). Once I got over this fear, I was left waiting. Come on, sensations! Any time now! The only response I got was a motor boat sound coming from my vulva.

ConaThe second attachment available is the “Cona”. The Cona’s silicone is the same buttery soft silicone that covers all of the attachments, only it’s softer. Not in texture but in design. The Cona is shaped like a cylinder, and is quite pliable. However, in use this does softly pinpoint the sensations. As I’ve stated before the sensations are lacking, so it doesn’t do much to help. All it does is pin point the thump or hum, depending on which setting you have it on. This attachment isn’t very easy to clean, but it isn’t impossible. I found a fingernail works alright, as well as a strong stream of water. Also, it takes a long time to dry, as the water sits within it.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe third attachment is the “Ever”. It’s a strange shape; it looks like a smooth water’s surface when a single drop of water falls upon it. It looks like a nice attachment, but it again does nothing. You can feel a difference from the Rose attachment, but does not translate into an orgasm.

FawnThe fourth attachment is the “Fawn”. It looks like a rubber, dog hair removing, lint brush to me. That’s how it feels too. The silicone isn’t soft enough and feels as though I”m getting jabbed. On the highest settings it’s still uncomfortable. Also, this attachment is extremely hard to clean. Every time I think that I’ve cleaned it thoroughly, I always end up seeing that tell tale white within the bristles.

NikoThe last attachment is the “Niko”. Honestly, I don’t know how I would describe how it looks, I think the picture is the only way. The Niko is a toss up when it comes to stimulation. It either feels like someone trying ram your clit with their tongue, or it’s like you’re poking your clit with your finger tip (on the highest settings). If that’s your thing, that’s great. It isn’t mine.

I’ve tried all of these attachments with lube, without lube, out of water, in the water. The Revel Body doesn’t work for me. With most toys, I’m able to weasel an orgasm out of it. Not with the Revel Body. I spent most of my time searching for anything resembling an arousing feeling. The whole toy, with all of the attachments, left me frustrated and bored.

do like the quality of everything that True Sonic Tech sent me. The packaging is exquisite (the way that the attachments look like display items), the boxes are strong, sturdy and nicely done. The quality of the toy and attachments are nicely done. Even though I think they are a waste of time and money, the quality is top-notch.

Revel travel collage

The Travel Bag and charger is in a class all of its own. I have yet to see another company put as much time and effort into storage for a sex toy. The bag is made with strong material (think backpack) and with a strong zipper. The bag is the perfect size for the toy, with a breathing hole at the bottom (I’m not kidding). Also, there is a drawstring portion within the top half of the bag. Here is where you would store the travel charging cord and USB wall charger cube. The travel charging cord is made from study wire with strong fabric around it. I honestly think that this is the best charging cord I’ve seen yet. The USB cube is a standard wall charger that is included with the toy. So, I have three of them now (I love them; so handy).  I seriously wish that other toy companies would take a page out of True Sonic Tech’s book in regards to the quality of the storage and travel cord.

So, overall, I would say, save your money and buy something else. I would recommend the Mona 2 or a We-Vibe Touch. The Revel Body isn’t a toy I would take a risk on, since it is $130 and that’s just the toy with the Rose attachment. Every other attachment is $19. The Travel Bag is just under $30. As I said in the video, you’ll find that if you buy everything Revel, you will find that you have bought the most expensive USB wall charger you’ll ever get.

Thank you SheVibe and True Sonic Technology for sending me the Revel Body with all of the attachments and Travel Bag, in exchange for my fair and honest review.

Mona 2I am so behind on this review. The reason? I HAVE BEEN USING IT NON-STOP. I’m not kidding. Since I received it from Burlesque Toys, I have been using it daily. I take it on trips with me, regardless of where I’m going. It’s always with me. I am in love with my Mona 2. The power, the shape, it’s rechargeable and waterproof. My clit has been waiting for this for a long time.

The Mona 2 is made by LELO a Swedish company and have quite an array of toys that they have designed. I had no experience with LELO prior, aside from the Tiani 2 (which I still haven’t used) and the Ella (which I love to take with me on trips as well).

Burlesque Toys, the company who sent me the Mona 2, is an online sex toy shop that only carries body safe materials, located in Delaware. They started out of necessity when their founder Grace Love went to a brick and mortar shop only to find toxic toys and leaving the shop feeling trashy (their word). They are a very enthusiastic company, always open to talking to customers. I was surprised when the Mona 2 showed up in three days after the confirmation email from them. Honestly their timing was perfect. I was stoked to be able to take Mona 2 with me when I went to Chicago for my belated honeymoon.

When I opened the mailbox to see the package containing my Mona 2, I squealed. Keep in mind that my mail box is one of those industrial ones that contains the entire block’s mail. Still, I squealed, I clutched the Mona 2 to my chest, and skipped home. I’m not kidding, I skipped. Neighbors be damned, I was fucking excited and I still am.

Mona 2 packaging

The Mona 2 from LELO comes with the standard LELO extras; the storage bag, the card of authenticity, small packet of LELO lube, and the charger for the toy.

Mona charge

The Mona 2 is amazing. I’m sure you’re sitting there thinking ENOUGH WITH THE ADJECTIVES! TELL ME WHAT MAKES IT AMAZING! Alright, here we go. The Mona 2 is made with from body safe materials – plastic and 100% silicone coating. The silicone is buttery smooth. It grips flesh gently when dry, which I love for when I’m using it externally. With a little bit of water based lube, it inserts easily. The buttons are a dream. Why are they a dream? There are four of them, they are all raised and separate. This makes it really easy to know which button I’m pressing when I’m not looking. Also, if things get a little slick, I’m able to easily grip them.

The Mona 2’s rumble is something to respected and admired. I mean it. The rumble is strong and fast, there is a buzz to it but just the right amount. The rumble carries through my g-spot stronger than I’ve ever felt. Usually when I stick a vibe in my vagina, I’m sitting there thinking, “I can hear it, so it must be on.” The Mona 2 doesn’t leave any question in my mind that it’s on. I’ve actually been afraid of using it internally. I’m not afraid of the orgasm, but rather of squirting all over my bed. Instead I take it into the bath, and have my way with it there, or in the shower. Doing it there I know I won’t be doing laundry over and over. I’m hoping to one day get my hands on a Liberator Throe (*stares dreamily into the distance*).

Mona 2 vibrations

The Mona 2 isn’t silent but it’s definitely quiet. It can barely be heard from the under the covers, which I appreciate. Nothing worse than reaching into my spank bank while trying ignore the sound of a legion of bees on high alert. There are 6 different patterns with the Mona 2 and 8 different speeds/strength settings. Personally I am in love with the highest, steady setting. After I’m finished, the lower settings ease me off of the Mona 2.

I love that the Mona 2 is waterproof, as I love taking toys into the water (shower/tub). I love that it holds a charge of two hours and doesn’t take long to charge. When the battery life is running out, the four buttons will flash. I like that it does that so I at least know that the end is coming. Usually when a vibe does without warning, I’m pissed off. When the Mona 2 dies, I sit there thinking, “fair enough, you did warn me”. The silicone covering of the bulbous end is smooth, but does need water-based lube for insertion. I do not recommend using the Mona 2 anally. There is no flared base and therefore not safe for ass play. The bulbous end is 4 1/2  in. in usable length, the circumference is 4 1/2 in. at the widest.

Mona front

Mona side

I am in love with my Mona 2. I never thought I would love broad vibrations. Honestly, after the Mona 2, it’s hard going back to go back to any other vibrator. In fact, when my Mona 2 does die, it takes me a long time to get used to the narrow vibrations of my Salsa backup.

The Mona 2 is a life changing toy, in my experience. That’s a huge statement, but it’s the truth. I never leave this toy behind when I go on trips. It has me coming with in minutes if need be (I love quickies when I’m busy). With the length of the Mona 2, I’m able to sit back and relax, and the vibe does all of the work.

Oh, Mona 2, how I love you.

Mona 2 sign

I saw this sign driving through a nearby county, and this is all I saw when I saw it.
Yes, sex toys are always on my mind.

dream vibeIt has been a long time since I last used a traditional vibe. Okay, so a year isn’t a huge amount of time, but it definitely feels like it. When Good Vibrations, told me they’d be sending it to me, I had to look it up. I wasn’t really familiar with the Lovelife line. The Dream looks like the definition of a “probe” to me. Just to be clear, I’m not saying that aliens are using the Lovelife Dream to do research on humans (I’m sure their probes are water-proof).

OhMiBod logoReal quick: OhMiBod is a company New Hampshire based company that has been around since 2006. They first came out with the iPod vibrator that a lot of people have seen (I remember seeing the commercials for it). They have since grown and added many more vibrators to their repertoire.

Honesty time; I’m not a fan of this vibe. I was left underwhelmed by the vibrations, but I do have to give them credit for their interesting patterns. I would have loved those patterns had they been stronger, and I’m usually not a fan of patterns. I’m usually the person who goes straight for the highest setting and doesn’t stray from there. There are 7 different patterns and 6 different intensities. If you don’t need a lot of power, this may be the vibe for you. If you like warm-up toys, this may be the vibe for you. As it stands, I don’t like warm-up toys. I like toys that can handle and finish the job they start. Needless to say, this toy couldn’t handle it. I’m happy to report that the vibrations are of the rumble variety, rather than buzzy. Using this toy internally was underwhelming. The vibrations didn’t carry through my vagina much at all. At the same time, I was worried about getting my juices all over the controls, when taking it deeper. Just not a good combo at all. The Dream is 7.1″ in overall length, and 1.4″ in diameter at the widest point of the usable end.

The Dream vibe is made from ABS plastic with a silicone coating on the usable end, and can be sterilized by wiping it with alcohol or bleach. I personally take toy wipes to it. This brings me to my number one issue with this vibe. It’s not waterproof! They spent a lot of time making useful patterns, semi-decent vibrations, and they don’t waterproof it? I like taking my toys into the shower and bathtub. I like being able to wash my toys thoroughly in water, without having to worry them.

Love ButtonAlright, on to the button. The “Love Button” looks like a person who is about to be sick after reading a long book in the back seat of a car, with a stomach full of questionable leftovers. The button is hard to push down  to turn it on (you hold it down for 3 seconds). It definitely takes more force than my Mona 2 or any of my We-Vibe toys. Also, the fact that it’s all one button is very inconvenient. If I’ve got lube on my hand, it’s extremely hard to figure out which side of the mondo button I need to push. It does light up when it’s in use. You can see the little strip around the button; that lights up when it’s on, and pulses when it’s charging.

Lovelife DreamThe Dream vibe comes with a USB charger, instructions, and a storage pouch. The packaging is actually quite sturdy and nicely made. I keep the Dream vibe, with its charger, in a zip pencil case. I’m not a fan of draw string bags, unless they have a stopper on them. I like the idea of a USB charger, only I would like it if it also had a wall adapter included. I usually sit with my lap top on my lap while sitting on the couch. So to have to charge it on my computer is extremely cumbersome. Fortunately I have a wall adapter from my cell phone, so I’m able to get around it. It does make it easy for those on the go who don’t want to deal with a big charger.

As I said before, I don’t like the Dream vibe. While I give it props for it’s great variety of patterns, the vibrations weren’t enough for me. I hate that it isn’t waterproof. Seriously, why make it at all? The button is a serious hassle to hassle to use, and the nauseous looking face on the button is off-putting. If you don’t need extremely strong vibrations, and don’t need a waterproof vibrator like I do, this may the vibe for you.

gvibe modI was intrigued by the G-Vibe. I had no expectations going into this one. If you’ve read my reviews, you know that I’m usually excited to try a new toy, but this one simply had me interested. I didn’t know if it would be a toy for me to love or if the toy would make me want to tear in two. When I first got the G-Vibe, I was irritated by the fact that they had the name of the toy on the shipping label. When I opened up the box for the G-Vibe I had to take a double take of the vibrator on the packaging. The picture of the G-Vibe on the box is almost a neon pink. The actual G-Vibe is almost a pink pastel. Not even close to the color on the box. If you look at the website, they don’t try and hide the pastel.

gvibe innards mod
Now the G-Vibe has the information about the toy on the side of the box. It states: “One-year Warranty, Water resistant, Rechargeable, Medical silicone (Phthalate-free) and ABS, Six vibrating modes, Quiet, Two motors on tips.” When you flip open the magnetically closed top, you’ll see the G-Vibe nuzzled in white foam with a tab to pull it out. Underneath is the the USB charger (doesn’t have a wall charger attachment), a white storage bag (think large microfiber sunglasses case) with the letters FT on it, and a little fold out booklet with the illustrations of how to use the G-Vibe. I love the sturdy feel of the storage, and the fact that foam is real foam and not a Styrofoam cut out. I use the whole box as storage, rather than putting it all in the bag. It stands up nicely on my bookcase.

IMG_2081

The toy itself is made of medical silicone and feels buttery soft. It does require water-based lube to be used comfortably, but not much. The handle is made out of ABS plastic. All of which can be wiped down with isopropyl alcohol, or a wipe. The G-Vibe is NOT waterproof, so get rid of any silly little delusions you have about taking this one into the tub. It’s not going to happen. The foldout booklet that comes with the G-Vibe has no information outside of suggestions of what you can do with it. Here’s what’s inside the booklet, as soon on the Fun Toys website:

GVibe Instructions

 I’ve tried the G-Vibe at least 8 different times. Most of the times that I’ve used it, it’s felt like it was stabbing my cervix. When it comes to vibrations, my experience have varied between two different feelings. The number one reaction to the vibrations is that I’m hearing a cell phone vibrate somewhere under a blanket. That’s it. I’m simply hearing it. Not feeling it. When I do feel it, it is somewhat extreme against my g-spot, but because of the flexibility in the arms, I can do nothing but sit there with it in place. Even then, after awhile, I’m back to hearing it only. Keep in mind, this is with both arms inside of me. When the G-Vibe is outside of my body, I can definitely hear it. It’s not whisper quiet. It will be covered by a T.V. at normal volume though.

IMG_2061

IMG_2062

IMG_2063

When I tried to use it clitorally, the flexible arms were extremely disappointing. It’s extremely awkward if you try and use both hands to maneuver it. I tried using just one arm, and then two (as depicted). Neither worked. I tried using one arm on my clit, while the other one was inside of me. Again, nothing. The width of the arms is too broad for me to use it with just one arm. Then when I try to use both on my clit, the gap between the two arms is too big for it to be effective. Even when I hold it closer to the tips, to close the gap, it doesn’t work, since it loses a lot of the vibrations in my hand.

I will say this though, the vibrations do have power. They just get lost in the flexibility of the arms, when used internally. When I was able to put it against my g-spot, I did enjoy it. A lot. As I said though, the flexibility in the arms makes it impossible move it around with the guarantee that you’ll find a solid angle again.  Here are the vibration patterns, as seen on Fun Toys’ website:

gvibe vibrations

Here is some info about the G-Vibe:

-It’s 9 1/2 inches in total length (ears together).

-The insertable length is 6 inches.

-It’s splash-proof, not waterproof. (No bath/shower fun with this one. (Lame.))

-The width of the ears (at its widest) is 1 1/16″.

-The motors are located 1 3/4″ down from the tips of the ears.The width of the toy is 1 1/2″, and 1 1/8′ on the slim side.

-To click it on, you hit the + button, and to turn it off you hit the – button until it shuts off.

Overall, I like the idea, but I don’t like the results. The flexibility in the arms makes it near to  impossible for g-spot stim when I try to thrust with it. When I do try to thrust, I end up stabbing my cervix. Not my favorite thing to do in my spare time. When I did align it with my g-spot, I was wowed by the vibrations, but the inability to apply pressure made me lose interest. Eventually I would go from feeling the G-Vibe to just hearing it. It’s not a super loud toy, but it isn’t whisper silent. I could hear it under the blankets (2 heavy blankets and 1 comforter). I appreciate the vibration patterns, and the intensities (the highest is the one I stuck with the most). It has serious potential, and it might work for some as is, but it didn’t work for me.

DukeThe first time I saw the Duke, was in Jenna’s tweet of the Tantus booth at ANME. I saw the Duke and I was excited. The COLOR. The fact it looked like a handle-less version of the Anaconda. And, the COLOR. When Tantus asked me what I’d like to review, I jumped on the opportunity to try the Duke. I couldn’t wait to get to the house, when I picked up the package from the mailbox. I cracked open the box on the way back from the mailbox, I had to see the color in person. When I got back to the house, I ran outside to take a Package of the Day picture, and loved that I could see the swirls of the iridescent blue in the shaft.

Duke w/ vibeSimply put? I love it. I’m not a fan of it as a vibrating dildo, but then I’m not too thrilled about vibrating cocks. It’s nice that it’s an option for those that are. I tried it with the included Tantus bullet, and with my Salsa. With the Salsa, it was obviously stronger, but I find the vibrations distracting more than anything. With the Tantus bullet, it was even worse. The Tantus bullet is extremely buzzy, and doesn’t get me off by itself, let alone in a silicone cock. Like I said though, it’s a nice option for those that like their dicks to go, “buzz, buzz.”

Duke Standing TallNow back to the Duke itself. The Duke is made by Tantus, one of my favorite sex toy manufacturers. They push for body safe materials in general, but they start by making body safe toys. The Duke is made from 100% premium platinum silicone, and the vibe is made from ABS plastic. The Duke can be sterilized by boiling (3-5 mins), by bleach (10% solution for approximately the same time), by running it in the dishwasher (sans soap). I use dish soap mostly with silicone toys. Unless I use a toy anally, or find out I have a yeast infection or something. Not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth and it goes with having a vagina. Now the bullet, you can sterilize somewhat, but not with boiling or a dishwasher. It is waterproof though, and you can wash it with dish soap or wipe it down with rubbing alcohol. I say “somewhat”, because it has a rubber ring around it, where the two pieces meet (and the button). Rubber is not sterilizable.

Duke headThe Duke is the ultimate in-between dildo, for this size queen. It’s not too big, it’s not too small, it’s in the middle. I usually like a lot of girth to my toys, but also love smaller, well positioned toys too. The Duke is right in between. Having had the T-Rex’s mega ridge, and the Raptor XL’s smaller ridge, I didn’t know what would come from the Duke’s. I’ll tell you right now, Tantus found the perfect middle ground of both. The creases under the coronal ridge are amazing. They remind me of the Anaconda, but they’re spaced out more, and almost rounded in comparison. With the Anaconda I have to use a toothbrush to clean it. I haven’t had to with the Duke. The ridge with those creases… mmmlicious. They pull on the ridges of my urethra sponge, and it feels amazing. The ridge puts a fabulous amount of pressure on my g-spot, and again, it hits my urethral sponge. The urethra sponge is in between your urethra, and the inside of your vagina. I love having it stimulated. The girth of the head of the Duke (1 7/8″) feels amazing, and the shaft (slightly over 1 1/2″) has enough drag to keep my vagina at attention.

The size of the Duke is what really makes it an “any time dildo”. There are days where my vagina doesn’t want anything in it. Girthier dildos can’t gain entrance, and longer dildos are held at bay. The Duke, however, makes it past with no problems. The length of the Duke (a hair over 7″ total, 6 1/2″ usable) is perfect for my vagina. I can take the whole thing, and feel no discomfort. The reason I mention it is because I can get a little crazy when I’m thrusting. The Duke, allows me to get crazy with out turning my cervix into a punching bag. Also, I can keep my thrusts short and rest my wrist on my pubic bone. Always a plus on a lazy day.

Every time I’ve used the Duke, I’ve enjoyed it. Standing, lying down, it doesn’t matter what position I’m in, I’m having a good time. It has made me cum numerous times, and I cum in every position I’ve tried it. Something I love about it, because I have dildos that I love using standing up, and then they suck when I lie down. I have an orgasm with the Duke, regardless of position. The matte finish on the shaft gives me little, to no problem with the aid of some water-based lubricant. Even when some of the lube is washed away in the shower, it doesn’t hinder me. The Duke is a dildo I’ll be taking with me on trips. Its gorgeous color, and guaranteed orgasm design (for me), makes it a gem in my collection.

G-Vibe PotD

I was surprised to have a FedEx man at my door today. I don’t usually get things delivered by them, or have them need a signature. When I looked at the package to see who it was from, I didn’t recognize the name. Then, I was surprised to see the name of the company and the toy name on the shipping label, right above my name. I wasn’t too happy about that. Since, you don’t need too many guesses to figure out what it could be. I checked with another blogger friend of mine, and hers didn’t have it on the shipping label. So maybe it was just from that one distribution center. I’ve played with it a bit (in my hands) and it seems promising. Only time will tell!

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.

WeVibe TouchAfter falling in love with We-Vibe’s Salsa, I honestly thought I’d never try something that would come close. Closed minded of me, yes, but I’m being completely honest here. After a rough start I thought I was going to write off the Touch as second best, but now that I’ve thoroughly used it for weeks, I have to say something I did not think I’d ever say. The Touch is giving the Salsa serious competition. They are neck and neck. I have been picking up the Touch more often than I have the Salsa. Boom. Truth bomb.

Alright, first off, I’m going to clear up any confusion about the color of the Touch I’m reviewing. The first Touch We-Vibe sent me was purple, and I used it in my Package of the Day post. When I looked at the innards of the packaging, I noticed I was sent a Tango manual and the Touch was fully charged. I was confused by it, so I contacted We-Vibe. They wrote me back saying they were sending me out another one, that I could keep the purple one or dispose of it like a battery, and that they had found a teal one! I was over the moon about it, because the teal color has been discontinued and it’s the one I’d been wanting.

Okay, moving on. The first time I used the Touch, I was less than impressed. Not by the vibrations but by the extreme drag of the silicone We-Vibe uses. My pussy was bone dry, and rearranging the Touch was extremely distracting. I’m not usually one to be put off by a first experience, but I was in this case. At least for a few days. Then I figured I’d take it in the shower. I fell in love with it. The silicone drag allowed me to keep a grip on it, and the shape of the scoop left little to no error when using while standing. After the shower, I took it to the bed and had a great time there. Since then, I gotten over my initial dislike of the silicone and have grown to like it. I’ve come to appreciate it, since I don’t have to worry about it sliding off or out of place when I’m using it.

Touch scoopMost of the clit vibes I had used before the Touch were bullets. This was the first one I’d ever used that covered the majority of my clit, but still had pinpointed vibrations. I’ve always found putting a plastic vibe directly on top of my clit to be irritating and borderline painful. So I’d always put it to the side of my clit. With the Touch, I’m able to put it to the side, but at the same time cover most of it, and it’s extremely comfortable. The scoop in the tip is the reason for it. Rather me having to find a comfortable position with a bullet, all I have to do it wiggle the Touch in between my labia and I’m ready to go.

The silicone surrounds the whole vibe, except for the dime sized charging port at the base. It’s somewhat squishy, but in no way soft. It has a ton of drag, and picks up lint  like a static-charged balloon. The majority of the silicone is in the pointed end. The silicone is pliable with a small amount of pressure, but it’s still firm in use.

Touch LogoThe strong vibrations of We-Vibe’s design are diminished by the silicone, but I wouldn’t list it as a negative. It’s different. I feel that it takes the slightly buzzy quality of the plastic Salsa out, and leaves just the deep rumble. It took me a second to get used to it. The Salsa is extremely strong, but it does have a buzz to it. I love that about the Salsa, but getting used to, and appreciating, the deep rumble of the Touch took a second.

The Touch has 8 vibration patterns. In order to get to one, you have to cycle through until you get to it. If you want to save your favorite setting when you’re done, hold the button down for 3 seconds. To turn it back on a quick press of the button will turn it back on. If you try and hold the button to start it back up, it won’t turn on. When I was first getting used to the We-Vibe vibes, I kept thinking that they were dead because when I held the button down it wouldn’t start up.

These are the 8 vibration patterns, as seen on We-Vibe’s site.

1  LOW  3000 rpm VIBE

2  MEDIUM  3600 rpm VIBE

3  HIGH  4200 rpm VIBE

4  ULTRA  4800 rpm VIBE

5   TEASE

6   WAVE

7   PULSE

8   CHA CHA

Touch Charging PortThe Touch takes 90 minutes to charge, and has a magnetic charging port. This can be either extremely easy or extremely annoying to use. I personally keep my We-Vibe charger on my nightstand, so I can charge which ever vibe (since it’s compatible with my Salsa too) needs to be charged by just leaning over. I have to make sure the charger has enough slack to stay up on its own, otherwise it’ll keep pulling off of the vibe. You can tell that the vibe is charging by a pin sized light on the charger. It will turn off when Touch is fully charged. The light is annoyingly small. Half of the time I have to search for it to make sure it’s charging. There are two parts to the charger; the charging port and the power cord. You plug the power cord into the charging port and you’re ready to go.

I’ve only really used the Touch on my favorite pattern, Ultra (4th in the cycle) and I get about 50 minutes on one charge (I’m not sure, as I’m not timing my sessions).  It’s annoying when it dies because there is no death rattle, it just stops. No warning and no real decrease in power, just dead.

Touch PackagingThe Touch does come with an over-sized satin-like storage bag for the Touch and charger, but it’s not something I use. I just keep my Touch in a drawer organizer with my other vibes and go-to dildos. The packaging of the Touch, is the same as the packing for the Salsa. My Touch arrived safely, but outside of that, the packaging doesn’t serve a purpose. I hold on to the packaging just in case anything were to happen to the Touch, as We-Vibe has a 0ne year warranty on them.

The Touch packs a thuddy punch that I love, and the shape is EXTREMELY comfortable. Probably the most comfortable vibrator I’ve ever used. It’s comfortable in my hand, comfortable on my clit, the silicone keeps it in place. The vibrations are extremely strong and it holds its charge for a decent amount of time. It is a hassle to clean, since using a wipe is out of the question because of the extreme drag of the silicone. So every time I use it, I have to take it over to the sink. Still, it’s the vibrator I’ve been picking up non-stop for the past month. I’d recommend the Touch to anyone and everyone.

B-Bomb & vibeI’ve been looking for a body safe, vibrating butt plug for awhile. Not seriously looking, but it’s on my mind when I’m window shopping. So, when Tantus sent me the B-Bomb to review, I was stoked. I opened the package with glee, read the hand written note, pulled out the stickers that came with it, and the B-Bomb. I took it outside to snap a picture for my Package of the Day, then started up my boiling pot. Time to play is always an issue for me, so it was a few days before I was able to thoroughly try it out.

The first time I slipped the B-Bomb in, I took note on how its entry was like that of the Neo. The tip makes it easy to line up, and easy to insert. The neck slopes smoothly, and neck size is great for me. There are big breaks in between my butt play, so I usually have to go slow. With the B-Bomb I didn’t have any issues with pain or being uncomfortable. It’s just enough to hold me open so I know that it’s there. Not that I usually forget when things are in my butt, but it can slip my mind every now and then. Anyways, I  thought the base would give me issues, since it’s round, but it was actually comfortable.  Considering I danced around with it in the second time I wore it, I’d say I took it for a sufficient test drive. That includes squatting, backwards tumble; think mediocre, out of shape, stripper without the pole. I didn’t feel like the plug was slipping out once (meaning I wasn’t constantly having to check it). Which is an extreme plus, because who wants to stop dancing to wash their hands over and over. Not me.

On the second day of testing, I had a serious chunk of time to play. Lately, my play time has become a precious commodity so I went all out. I grabbed my Salsa,  Acute, Vamp, O2 Revolution, Raptor XL, and H2o Sliquid. I started off small with the Acute, and had no issues with the B-Bomb. In fact it felt great. Again, I was reminded of the Neo, and how well it works with other toys. Then I moved up to the Vamp. It did well, a little bit of catching, but still no real issues. Same with the O2 Revolution. I think there wasn’t much catching with the O2 Rev because the head ridge isn’t very pronounce. Then I moved onto the Raptor XL. Talk about a tight squeeze. The Raptor XL is made from a firm silicone, slightly firmer than B-Bomb. This made things interesting when I started thrusting. The B-Bomb was holding on for dear life. Eventually I couldn’t resist, and I pointed the Raptor XL’s head down while thrusting. After a few strokes I was able to pop the B-Bomb out.

B-bomb factoids:
Overall length – 4 1/2″
Bulge circumference – 4 3/4″
Neck circumference – 3 1/4″
Base width – 2 1/8″
Vibrator length – 2 1/4″
Vibrator batteries – LR44 (watch batteries)
Vibrator circumference – 2 1/4″Depth of hole for vibe – 3″

B-bomb vibeNow onto the vibrations. It’s a cheap little bullet. No way around it. The only reason I can actually feel it when it’s in, is because of how thin the silicone is along the neck. It’s a fun little buzz in the butt, but it’s nothing that makes me go “Whoa!”. It was more like, “Oh, this is pleasant”. The buzzy vibrations were almost annoying when I was using it other toys. I did compare it to my Original Bullet, also from Tantus, and it’s less powerful and not as noisy. I could hear it when it was in, though. It wasn’t too loud, but I wouldn’t recommend wearing it in front of others if they aren’t in on your toy play. Now when I used it with my Salsa, the first thing that blared across my brain was “I wish I had a prostate”.  It was mind blowing. As corny as it sounds, I couldn’t stop saying “wow”. Even as I’m writing this, I’m thinking about when I’m going to be able to do it again. Alright, enough about that. Lube is a must when putting the bullet in the B-Bomb, because there is so much suction. It’s just a straight hole. So pulling it out without the help of lube a is serious pain.

Overall, I love the shape of the B-Bomb. It’s reminiscent of my favorite plug, the Neo. It’s a great size and shape for any time I want to play. Meaning I can go weeks without play and pop it in without warm up. That’s huge for me because I do go long periods of time without sticking things in my butt. I’m a huge fan of anything sterilizable and it always bumps a toy up in my mind. I don’t care for the vibrations. I didn’t expect much, and that’s what I got. When I used it with my Salsa it was a whole new toy. The fact that it can even fit my Salsa, is enough warm my heart, er, my butt. The vibrations of the included bullet, annoyed me when I used it with other toys, but I was surprised at how many toys it could work with. I mean it took me using the Raptor XL and basically dragging it along my perinea wall to actually pop it out. So, I like it. I’ll be using it with my Salsa from here on out, but the silicone design is awesome. That’s what really matters to me.

Thanks to Tantus for sending me the B-Bomb, in exchange for a fair and honest review!
