Review: Rechargeable Magic Wand

Magic Wand Review

I’m a wand girl. I like clit vibrators and use them often, but nothing is quite the same as a wand massager. They were my first type of vibrator and still my most used today. I started off with the Wanachi Mini, and looking back on it, damn was it weak, but when I first got it I loved it to bits and used it to death (literally). Next I got the Fairy Wand, which I still hope to review sometime. Again it was clearly pretty weak, but still a huge upgrade from the Wanachi and for a good year or so it was named my Number 1 Favourite Toy. I use to switch between the two constantly, depending on whether I wanted to use the weak but cordless Wanachi, which was far easier to pull out quickly during spontaneous play sessions, or the Fairy Wand, which was more powerful but I had to plug in (which where I use to live was really, really annoying). I’m not one to make big purchases, but it was pretty clear I needed to invest in one of the big guns, a Doxy or Hitachi Magic Wand. I ended up going with the Magic Wand Rechargeable, letting it fix my two biggest issues, power and the ability to be cordless. It kind of felt like it would be too good to be true while I was waiting for it, but I’ve now had it since August last year, and I can 100% confirm its excellence! It is easily my most used sex toy ever, I think if it ever died I would be completely heart broken and need 20 boxes of ice cream to drown my sorrows, that is until my next one arrives.

Review: Lovehoney Booty Buddy

Lovehoney Booty Buddy Review

This is my second review on my quest to track down ‘good quality cheap beginner’s butt plugs’. My first review on the subject was a success, but it wasn’t the most easily accessible plug to buy online or in stores, especially if you weren’t in the UK. So I spent some time searching through Lovehoney’s great selection of silicone beginner’s plugs. I was presently surprised to see that the large majority of their range was $20 and under, which for me personally is a price I’m totally ok to spend on something without having to think it over very much. Out of all of them I was most drawn to the Booty Buddy since until now I did not own any curved plugs and I was super eager to give it a go.

External Review: We-Vibe Tango II

We Vibe Tango Review 1

Next month is a big one for this blog, it is my first year blog anniversary! I’m super excited for it, and have been planning some big changes to my blog to celebrate, among other announcements I will share in the coming weeks! One of the main changes however, is that I am hoping to make my site more Australian friendly, since I feel like we don’t get much representation down here, and I’d love to help fix that. So I was completely delighted at the start of this month to announce my new site sponsor, Cupid’s Cupboard, a brilliant Australian sex toy store that sells only the best body safe brands at crazy good shipping prices ($8.95 flat rate, but free with orders over $50)! Anyway, when they asked me what toy I could review for them out of their excellent range, it was a total no-brainer. It has been a long time coming, but I finally have one of the much loved We-Vibe products, the Tango! It is not a secret on my blog or others that the We-Vibe Tango is considered one of the staples of sex toys. It has been unanimously named the strongest clit vibe on the market, plus I have been very eager to test it out with some of my other unrelated but compatible sex toys.

Check out my review at Cupid’s Cupboards website, to see if I could handle the Tango, and if the Tango could handle me!

I received this product in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. 

Book Review: Coming Out Like A Porn Star

Coming-Out-Like-A-Porn-Star-Review

“Coming Out Like A Porn Star: Essays on Pornography, Protection, and Privacy” is a fascinating look into the world of porn stars and their personal experiences in coming out to their family, as well as in their everyday lives, plus how they deal with the repercussions porn work brings due to the stigma society holds over it. It is edited by Jiz Lee, who has been in more than 200 porn projects over ten years, and the book features a diverse range of over 50 contributors, such as Stoya, Nina Hartley, Annie Sprinkle and Joanna Angel. This book is a must-read, to anyone interested even slightly in any form of sex work or sex positive culture; to anyone who knows someone who has worked in these sorts of roles; or even just to broaden your own views.

Review: Satin by Sliquid

Sliquid-Satin

My vagina likes to be picky, and so when it comes to lubricant, there is only one brand I trust, Sliquid. I’ve been totally smitten with their Sea and Sassy lubes for almost a year now, using Sassy for my anal play, and Sea for everything else. Plus, they really do go a long way, my two bottles are only 125ml each, which really doesn’t look like a lot, but despite using them both almost weekly, each has over half left. Even though I couldn’t imagine needing anything more than these, with the Sliquid range I do get the overwhelming sense that I’ve gotta catch try ’em all. There are a few I have my eye on, for instance I’ve never enjoyed any flavoured lubricants, but I have a feeling once I try their range it’ll change my opinion. Plus, their organics range and silicone lubricants sound divine. But the top of my list since I got Sassy and Sea, has been Sliquid Satin, so as soon as I got a chance to buy it I did, and I have not been disappointed.

Review: The Vamp by Tantus

Tantus Vamp Review

If I were to pinpoint the most surprising thing I have found out about my body since starting this sex toy journey, it would be that I have a really small vagina. By that, I mean that while I have an average looking one, and have a little above average depth, my vagina’s opening is very small, meaning I have a lot of trouble with above average girth toys. I still hope to one day be a Size Queen (a term used by bloggers who enjoy big toys) like a lot of my other favourite sex toy bloggers and be able to enjoy some of their favourites, but right now that’s not the case, I’m more like a Size Princess at the moment. That is totally ok, everyone is different and it doesn’t really effect me too much. But it is something I didn’t know when purchasing the Tantus Vamp. I don’t see it as a mistake, because it helped me to learn myself, but ultimately it turned a toy I have read many positive reviews on, into something not so positive for me.

Guide: Butt Plugs for Beginners

DSC_0100

Butt plugs are easily one of my favourite types of toy and my most reviewed, so they are of course what I get asked about most often. As such, I thought it was about time I finally wrote a beginner’s guide to butt plugs. This’ll have some relevant information regarding anal sex and using anal dildos, but is primarily a guide on plug type toys, so please only use it in that regard.

Guide: Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

gift guide

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us! Another year of wondering if your partner really meant it when they said they “don’t need anything” (they didn’t), and scrambling to get dinner reservations, anywhere, at the last minute. If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably have completely forgotten to buy your partner a gift at this point, and will be slowly watching that internet shopping deadline tick closer. Single? Then treat yo self, there couldn’t be a better time of year for it. So I’m thinking we skip the overdone chocolates and flowers, and consider something sexy this year!

There are plenty of intimate gifts you can get around Valentine’s, a big one being lingerie, but massage oils and bars, bath bombs (if you have one big enough for two), and candles also make good introductions to bringing external sources into the bedroom and your foreplay. If you are thinking of buying them a sex toy however, first make sure it is something they are interested in, particularly with bondage or anal type toys, otherwise it could be a pretty big shock to them, and could make them feel pressured. The biggest rule in Valentine’s day shopping is to get something for them (and / or to use as a couple), not just for you!

Review: Queenie by D.VICE Silicone Dildo

D.VICE Queenie Silicone Dildo Review 6
Queenie by D.VICE is my first Australian-made sex toy purchase, and boy am I proud! With super squishy body safe silicone, a beautiful hand poured texture, slight curve and bumps along the shaft, plus harnass and anal compatiable, it is really hard to fault this beautiful work of art!

Buying D.VICE’s Queenie Silicone Dildo was easily one of the most expensive snap decisions I have ever made, but it was also one of the best. When I attended the Melbourne Sexpo last year I planned to get a few small things I was out of (lubricant, toy cleaner ect.), as well as make one big purchase to treat myself. Unfortunately, the range at Melbourne Sexpo was incredibly bad (pick up your game Australia!), and it was pretty hard to find any of the things I was after. Once I accepted I wasn’t going to find any of the US or UK goodies I was after, I turned my head towards D.VICE, an Australian company that creates silicone sex toys that while I knew were good, I usually don’t have the money to spend on. Going over to their booth I was greeted by two women, one of whom was wearing a strap-on with a lovely purple and white marbled dildo. One of them suggested I give it a feel, and once I did I immediately made the purchase mentally. Squiiiishhhh was the very prominent adjective running through my mind. Squishy dildos is 100% my thing, and my only other soft dildo, the Pack ‘n Play No.2 by Tantus, is my absolute favourite. After that the women helped me pick out which one I had just touched from their range and were very helpful overall, thanks so much D.VICE!
