Review: California Exotics Luxe

California Exotics Luxe

I am a huge sci-fi nut, so the idea of any AI or responsive sex toy design is always something I am hugely interested in. There have been a few, but I haven’t heard of anything ‘wow’ yet, and haven’t tried any myself. I believe these toys are going to continue to pop up though, and I’m sure in 10 or so years time they will dominate the market. So recently when I was approached by my sponsor Femplay to review some of their products, I noticed the CalExotics Luxe amongst their range. I was immediately drawn to it due to its supposed ‘Touch-Sensitive Technology’. This is the sort of innovative idea that I am really excited to see more of in the sex toy industry, so I was super intrigued to find out more and see how it functioned for myself. I requested it from Femplay and they were kind enough to provide it for this review.

Review: Vibease Esthesia

Vibease Esthesia

If I had to name one of my favourite and most unique reviews this year then the Vibease clitoral vibrator would surely come up. I had no idea what it would be like and was more than a little cynical about its erotic audio books, but it didn’t take me long to fall in love with it. While it had its faults, namely being difficult to use without its phone app, overall I gave it a good review. After publishing it I was once again contacted by Vibease, who were pleased with the review and offered to send me their only other product, the Esthesia. This toy is essentially the same as the Vibease and is also designed for use alongside their phone app, however rather than being a clit vibe it’s a rabbit vibrator. While I have now tried two dual stimulation vibrators, the MysteryVibe Crescendo and SenseMax SenseVibe, this is the first one that actually features the traditional shape of the rabbit vibrator (without the actual rabbit), so I guess technically this is my first one! Due to this and my love for the Vibease, I have been very excited to try out the Esthesia and write this review.

Review: Tantus Vamp Super Soft

Tantus Vamp Super Soft

For avid readers of my blog, you might recall the Tantus Vamp from my earlier review of it back in March last year. That review is one of my favourites, because I always felt like it was a turning point both for my blog and for my body. When I first purchased the Vamp I had no idea about any limitations I may have in my ability to enjoy sex toys. I was just starting out as a blogger, and I happily added the Vamp to my shopping cart during a sale of Tantus’s grab bags. Little did I know, that it would actually be too large in girth for my vagina to comfortably accommodate. I tried many times to be able to use it, as I had heard such great feedback from my fellow bloggers, until eventually I admitted defeat, and decided large toys just weren’t for me. I have come to accept that now, and it is one of the traits that makes my blog a little bit different from others. But I always wished I could enjoy the Tantus Vamp like so many others had. So, you only can imagine my excitement when I heard Tantus were releasing a new version of the Vamp, in their Super Soft silicone formula. It was a dream come true, and I quickly set my heart upon owning one. Thankfully, Peepshow Toys were kind enough to send one my way for review.

Review: New York Toy Collective Ellis

New York Toy Collective Ellis

In the sex toy industry, and as with most industries, there are the large brand name companies with huge product ranges and luxury packaging that can be found at practically every store, and then there are the smaller independent manufacturers who hand-make their products and focus on quality over quantity. Both are good and I think a mix of these two styles are important, especially since it is usually the larger companies who can afford to create more entry-level priced collections. However, I have so much more respect for the little guys who put so much love and care into each of their pieces, and basically put their financial (and sometimes personal) lives at risk just to help create great quality sex toys for us all. I want to support these sorts of companies as much as I can, but unfortunately they can be hard to access here in Australia when none of the larger retailers want to stock them. So this is why when I found The Slinky Minx  and was given the opportunity to review the New York Toy Collective Ellis that I was so ridiculously overjoyed.

Review: Tantus Uncut #1

Tantus Uncut #1

This is my first review of 2017 and this year I’ve got a lot of big goals for the blog. One of them is trying to diversify my posts and review products. Different types of toys, writing more about my opinions on certain topics rather than just reviews, and so forth. So, on that note, even though it’s a little bit of a stretch, I thought that this sex toy would be the perfect way to kick off the year. The Tantus Uncut #1 represents a step forward in dildo diversity. If you hadn’t noticed, this particular dildo is uncircumcised and features a foreskin. I’ve read a lot of reviews on this toy before deciding to get one, and bloggers often talk about how they have never had a uncircumcised partner before, but that is because the majority of them are from the US where around 80% of males are circumcised. I, on the other hand, live in Australia where only around 30% of males are circumcised, so as you can imagine all my partners have been ‘uncut’. This also explains why you’ve likely never seen a uncircumcised dildo or penis in the media before, because the majority of our porn and sex toys come from the US! I was so happy to see the penises that I know and love represented when Tantus announced the Uncut, and since have been so glad to see many other sex toy companies continue this awesome trend.

Review: Njoy Pure Wand

Njoy Pure Wand

When I started reviewing I made a list of all the toys I believed were Sex Toy Reviewer Must-Haves. I’m proud to say I now own all of them, but for awhile there has been one exception to this and that was the Njoy Pure Wand. Renowned for its heavenly G-spotting and squirting abilities in the sex toy world, the Njoy Pure Wand has been a toy I have probably mentioned in my reviews over a hundred times. One of the main reasons I haven’t gotten it till now (other than the price) is that I have a difficult G-spot that loves to hide and I was starting to think it just wasn’t for me. This was until in July when I got the Jopen Comet Wand as a cheaper way for me to explore the world of G-spotting before committing to one of Njoy’s pieces. If you’ve read that review, which I’d recommend if you’re interested in G-spotting and the Pure Wand, you’ll know that I absolutely adored it and instantly made the decision to get a Njoy Pure Wand as soon as humanly possible. So, of course, as soon as I heard one of my favourite stores to work with, JOUJOU, had started stocking Njoy recently, you can bet exactly what I requested!

Review: Tantus Gary

Tantus Gary

It has been over a year now since I reviewed my first realistic Tantus dildo, the Pack ‘n Play No.2, and declared it my favourite dildo, giving it a whopping 94% review score. Since then I have tried many dildos of all different types, but nothing has really come close to the feelings I get with the Pack ‘n Play. So when I had the recent opportunity to review some of Tantus’ products, I knew I wanted something I thought could stand up to the it. I chose the Tantus Gary, because to me it looks like a upgraded version of the Pack ‘n Play. They’re both realistic dildos that use Tantus’ soft silicone (although the Gary has a firmer inner core) and have similar girths. I knew instantly when it arrived that the Gary would make a perfect toy for me and maybe even live up to my love for the Pack ‘n Play No.2.

Review: Godemiche Galaxy Ambit

Godemiche Ambit

Have you ever bought something that you couldn’t even begin to justify, you just really needed it? I’m sure we’ve all made such an impulsive and stupid, yet wonderful, decision once in our lives, and mine is definitely the Godemiche Ambit. I’ve had my eye on Godemiche since they started up, a small husband and wife team from the UK who hand-make all of their silicone products. So far their range has been small, offering their signature Adam dildo, a butt plug, a ball gag and The Peg dildo which is finger-like toy designed for anal beginners. They’re all brilliant start-up products, and I doubt it will be long before they expand, especially since they are currently designing a wand attachment dildo for the Doxy Wand as well as an attachment for the new Doxy bullet vibe that was announced at the ETO Show this year. As much as I have wanted to try out their products, I was worried that the girth of the Adam (the only product I was particularly interested in) would be too much for me. That all changed however when the Ambit was announced, a slimmer dildo designed for G-spot stimulation. It looked like the perfect dildo for me, and I was so excited for it I even made a statement about how great it looked for SHE Magazine (pg.62). Of course I couldn’t afford it, but after seeing it made for someone else in Godemiche’s Galaxy colour combination I just couldn’t resist and immediately ordered one.

Review: Tantus Flurry


Tantus FlurrySince its release Tantus’s Dual Density O2 line has been all the rage in silicone dildos and my dream to own one of these beauties was finally fulfilled recently. In fact, I somehow now own three, which truly is a thought that fills my heart with happiness. This review is all about the Tantus Flurry, however I will soon be reviewing the other two, which are the Gary and Uncut #1. It has been a little while since my last Tantus review, so if you aren’t aware then let me mention once again that Tantus is one of my absolute favourite sex toy manufactures and dildo makers due to their use of body-safe ultra-premium silicone. They are the makers of my current favourite dildo, and if it wasn’t for the fact that their shipping prices to Australia are so high I would likely own every dildo they have on offer. Last year I treated myself and bought a few of their dildos before their shipping prices got so high, however this was my first time asking them for possible review items and I was so glad when they agreed to send me some toys over!

Review: Tantus Vamp

Tantus Vamp

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.
