Review: Zumio

Zumio

Usually when I first get offered a product for review I have a basic idea of how much I’m going to like it. A big reason for this is if I’ve read other blogger’s reviews of the same item, but what about when it’s a brand new product? Well, I can usually get an idea either from the manufacturer (do they have a good track record of other products?), or the type of toy (is it a style that I usually enjoy?). There are rare exceptions to this rule however, such as when brand new companies come out with innovative new toys I’ve never even considered before, such as when Womanizer first released their clitoral suction toy. I would have never guessed how big they would become if I had been reviewing for them back then. So, when JOUJOU approached me about reviewing the Zumio, a completely new style of toy from a brand new company, it felt like Womanizer all over again and I had no idea what to expect. Now, full disclosure, when I first saw it I literally lol’d and straight up told JOUJOU I didn’t think it would work. But, being ever curious I accepted it anyway because I just had to find out more, and as always, I hoped to be proven wrong.

Review: L’amourose Prism V

L'amourose Prism V

Even though I am a sex toy reviewer and it might seem like I can get whatever toy I want there is still a bunch that I desperately desire but have never had the opportunity to review, and up until now this particular toy has been at the top of that list. Even though I had never tried any products from them before, L’amourose is one of my favourite luxury sex toy manufacturers. I hear constant praise for their products and customer service, and I love the designs they come out with. A few times I have had the opportunity to review L’amourose, and so after much research I decided that the Prism V was the toy I wanted most, however all those times ultimately fell through. But when JOUJOU recently approached me and asked if I wanted to review something for them I was overjoyed when I saw they stocked the L’amourose Prism V and requested it straight away.

Review: SenseMax SenseVibe Warm

SenseMax SenseVibe Warm

I have been buying sex toys for four years now and reviewing them for two, but I have always avoided any toys that combined clitoral and vaginal stimulation. I love the idea of them and they certainly are popular, but I have read far too many negative reviews where the clitoral arm does not sit properly on the user’s clitoris, and that wasn’t a risk I wanted to take. Even since I have been reviewing and getting toys for free I have still avoided them because I feel they are just too subjective of a toy to be able to properly recommend to my readers. The adjustable MysteryVibe Crescendo, which I reviewed earlier in the year, was the closest I’ve come to one of these toys so far, however even that didn’t work out and I was left with a motor that was too high up to reach my clit, putting me off the idea even more. But I know it is a big part of the sex toy world that both myself and my blog are missing out on, so when I was approached by SenseMax to review the SenseVibe Warm recently I decided it was finally time to face my fears and try out my first dual stimulation toy.

Review: VeDO Quaker Anal Vibe

VeDO Quaker Anal Vibe

The thing that makes me most happy about running this blog is seeing readers trust my recommendations enough to base their own purchases off of them. But not everyone can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a sex toy, and so it is important for me to find cheap alternatives to recommend rather than just focusing on the luxury toys. This is my second VeDO review of the two Peepshow Toys recently sent me, and after the astounding success of the Luv Plus Clit Vibe I have been very excited to try out their Quaker Anal Vibe. To me, brand new company VeDO have already proven themselves to be worthy makers of cheap yet still body-safe, good quality, and well designed sex toys. For its price I thought the VeDO Luv Plus was extremely well made, and since the Quaker Anal vibe is even cheaper it certainly has a lot to live up to.

Review: VeDO Luv Plus Rechargeable Vibrator

VeDO Luv Plus

Last year I got to review some amazing products, that, if it wasn’t for the fact I am a reviewer, I would have never been able to afford. It was, and is, fantastic, but as someone who is considered on the lower end of society in terms of money, I can completely understand how alienating it can feel to readers who are making an effort to try and find good sex toys but can’t actually buy any of the things I review. Cheaper sex toys are just as important as higher end or luxury ones, if not more so, and they can be just as good. In fact the most expensive toys I have ever reviewed, the MysteryVibe Crescendo and O-WAND, I gave bad reviews to. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it is any good, and I think that it is our jobs as reviewers to let our readers know this and what better options are out there for them. Cheap but good quality toys that are made from body-safe materials are becoming more common and can provide a great entry-point or even full-fledged toy if you know where to look. So this year I want to start reviewing more budget-friendly toys to provide more accessible options for the majority of my readers. To start this off Peepshow Toys have kindly sent me two VeDO toys that are both under $45 AUD / $35 USD, the Luv Plus Bullet Vibrator and Quaker Anal Vibe, and for this review I will be focusing on the Luv Plus.

Review: Tantus Perfect Plug Plus

Tantus Perfect Plug Plus

My blog started with a butt plug review, and since then I have written a lot of them, including a guide for beginners on how to use them. From that I have been seeking out plugs to recommend to my readers, generally with an emphasis on affordable but still good quality types. For anyone willing to put in a bit of extra money though I have always recommended the Tantus Perfect Plug Kit. Even though I didn’t own it myself, I trust Tantus,,and to me the kit always seemed like the perfect way to start an anal journey. From it you get two very high quality silicone plugs that you know will last you a long time. The first is the Perfect Plug, which is thin, small, and a great way for any beginner to start off, while the other one, the Perfect Plug Plus, maintains a similar shape but is larger and can be used with a bullet vibrator for added stimulation, once you have mastered the smaller one. So, when I was given the opportunity from Tantus awhile ago to review some of their products I knew that it was finally time to try out what I had been recommending, and so, as an already experienced anal toy user, I asked to review the Perfect Plug Plus.

Review: We-Vibe Wish

We-Vibe Wish

I’m a big We-Vibe fan. My Tango is a must-have during PIV sex, and no other bullet vibrator I have tried has even come close to its power. It transforms even the most boring of dildos into amazing orgasms, and while I don’t talk about it as often, its sister toy, the We-Vibe Touch, is also a brilliant and powerful toy. We-Vibe have released, to hugely positive reviews, a few new products last year, but they were primarily internal vibrators and as this isn’t really my thing I didn’t pursue reviewing them. More recently however the We-Vibe Wish was announced, We-Vibe’s brand new clitoral vibrator, and just on those words I was sold, after all their other two are the best in my toybox. Then I saw its adorable soft silicone design and gorgeous blue colour and I needed one immediately. The awesome guys over at Peepshow Toys were kind enough to hook me up with one for review, and here we are.

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: MysteryVibe Crescendo

MysteryVibe Crescendo

It is not often a sex toy gains the amount of popularity that the MysteryVibe Crescendo achieved before it was even released. What started as a crowd funding campaign in 2005, the Crescendo quickly became seen as the next big thing in sex toys by both bloggers and the sex-positive general public alike. The idea of a bendable sex toy with six motors instantly made headlines, and its innovative design of a gender neutral and fully customisable vibrator that could be adjusted to suit the user’s preferences was much welcomed and endorsed by sex bloggers, including me. Plus, combined with its app and six (yes, that wasn’t a typo) motors you can even customise and design your own vibration styles and patterns. The seemingly only downside to the toy was its material, which was TPE, but they have now changed this to wonderful body-safe silicone, making what seemed like a already pretty perfect toy even better!

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.
