Siri by LELO

Siri by LELO is simply a wonderful little gem of a toy.  It fits into the palm of my hand, the buttons are exactly where I would want them to be and it is so easy to use. Siri can be used on your clit or labia, if you so choose. I am a big fan of clit vibes, so this works very well for me.

Siri is made of silicone and ABS plastic.  The Siri measures in at a little under 4 inches long, almost 2 inches wide and weighs less than 12 ounces.  One would think that because this is such a light vibe, that it wouldn’t have much in regards to satisfying power. That thought turns out to be so wrong where Siri is concerned.

When you first take your vibe from its box, you need to charge it for a full two hours. You will know that it is done charging when the LED lights stop flashing and emit a steady glow.  The Siri has 4 buttons; a plus, a minus, an up arrow and a down arrow. The Siri can be locked so that, you can travel with it. You simply need to hold down the plus and minus buttons together for  several seconds until the lights dim. To unlock it, do the same until the lights brighten. To turn it on, you need to press the plus sign. To increase the power, hold the plus sign down. When you want to decrease the power press the minus button. This also turns Siri off if you press and hold it. Pressing the plus sign takes you through the different levels.

Siri is very quiet, even at its highest level. You cannot hear it through a closed door at all. I used this while watching tv with my husband and he didn’t even notice it for quite a bit. Only use water based lubricants with the Siri and don’t put it in water. I found it easiest to use toy wipes to clean it.

Pros:

  • rechargeable
  • quiet
  • multiple speeds
  • lockable buttons
  • powerful
  • easy to hold and use
  • small and discreet

Cons:

  • not waterproof

I was not at all surprised to enjoy this toy so much. I have had so much success with the last few LELO toys that I have tried. I am really impressed with the design and power behind this toy. This is definitely a 5 star toy!

Thanks to Babeland for providing the Siri in exchange for an honest review.

Hitachi Magic Wand

The Hitachi Magic Wand is a vibrating muscle massager that has  long been commandeered by many seeking greater orgasmic fulfillment. I had often wondered what the big deal was, I mean seriously; it’s huge, everyone says it’s really loud, it only has 2 speeds and I might have forgotten to mention that it’s um…huge! It was provided for me to review by the generous folks at Babeland.

Well, I can honestly now see what all of the fuss has been about. Let me tell you the specifics about this particular equipment ( because seriously IT IS NOT A TOY… it is much too awesome to be called a toy) and then we will get why everyone should have this in their toy box.

The Hitachi Magic Wand is a vibrating wand massager. It has been around since the 70s and seems to be a staple in the adult film industry. It runs electrically and is only for use with 110-120v power sources. The Hitachi is 12 inches long and the head is 2 1/2″ in diameter. It comes with a cord that is over 6 feet long. Look at it this way, if it doesn’t work for you sexually or isn’t soothing to your muscles, you could always carry it in your car and use it for a weapon if someone tries to rob you. Weighing in at 1.2 pounds and having almost enough cord to use it like a lasso, it will definitely give someone pause if you swing it at their head a few times.

Ok, on to the reasons why everyone should have one of these bad boys. You can use it as a muscle massager or as a clit massager, either way you’ll be nice and relaxed when you’re done. It is sturdy and easy to hold on to. After using another wand massager which I will not name ( let’s call it the Wannabe Hitachi), I really felt as if wands weren’t for me. It was clunky and it just didn’t fit my contours well at all. The first wand massager was almost enough to turn me off for good, but after trying the Hitachi, I see it’s the one I should have gotten in the beginning.

The Hitachi is made of vinyl and hard plastic, which are very safe materials that are super easy to clean. Some soap and water or your toy cleaner  are all that is needed. You will be done in a snap. The box that this comes in is pretty discreet, but let’s face it, there are very few people who don’t know what a Hitachi wand is used for.

Pros:

  • Electric- makes it worth it just so you don’t have to buy tons of batteries
  • Flexible
  • Powerful
  • Easy to clean
  • I found it to not be too loud for me- you can hear it in my room but since I use music to cover most of my toys anyway, it wasn’t something that could be heard through my closed door

Cons:

  • Only to be used in the USA
  • Should only be used for less than 30 minutes at a time ( let’s face it, if it takes you more than 30 minutes to get off with a Hitachi, you have a “Clit of Steel” and nothing is going to work for you)
  • not waterproof ( BECAUSE IT’S ELECTRIC!!!)
  • only 2 speeds ( low which is really- Phasers set on stun and high- which I have no clue what something this high would be called other than OMG OMG, I am a puddle of goo now..)

If I could give this a thousand stars I would. It is just that damn good! One thing I would suggest though, and I am going to invest in it myself, is to buy the wand controller. This makes it more of a variable speed instead of simply a 2 speed vibe. As a plus the wand controller adds 6 more feet of cord so that it gives you a little more room to move away from the outlet.

I gave you pros and cons on this item, but the cons aren’t necessarily a bad thing for me, because most of those don’t really hinder me at all. I live in the USA, it took like 10 mins for me to get off with this, I play better in bed and I barely even used it on high ( low was just fine for me and was probably stronger than high on many of my toys). There is definitely a special place for the person who thought this particular toy up. 5 of 5 stars!

MiMi Vibrator

First off, I must say that whomever it was that directed me towards the MiMi when I first joined Eden Fantasys, THANK YOU! MiMi is a wonderful toy to have in your collection. No matter how many toys I have added to my stash, I always come back to her. She is discreet, powerful and has multiple speeds. I bought MiMi, what feels like ages ago, but I know that it was either the very end of last year or within the first couple of months of this year. Who Knows? MiMi is like one of those old friends that asks you how you’re feeling and even though you say fine, they KNOW that you’re not, the friend you are so comfortable when you are around them. I am so comfortable with MiMi, she’s my go-to gal. I loved MiMi generation 1 and I LOVE MiMi generation 2.

I have a generation 2 MiMi because my generation 1 MiMi had a flaw, there was a small bubble under the silicone. I honestly don’t recall why they said that this happened to some of the old MiMis, but I know that JeJoue said if this had happened to yours and it was within the warranty period, to contact them and they would replace it for you. The only thing that I had to do was send a copy of my receipt and a week later, MiMi 2 came to stay. Best Customer Service EVER!

MiMi is a discreet vibrator covered in silicone that is  hypoallergenic, latex free, non porous and Phthalates free. She is rechargeable. It is fully charged after about 2 hours, but you will know when it is done, because it has a small red light that blinks until it is fully charged. I usually just attach the charger ( it attaches to the MiMi magnetically) and go about any business that I need to take care of for a few hours. When I am done and in need of some relaxation, my girl is ready for me to get down to business.

MiMi generation 1 had 2 buttons, a plus (+) and a minus (-).  The plus would take you through the first five levels which is basically the lowest steady vibration to the highest steady vibration. After level 5 if you continue to push the plus button, you move to the pulsating levels. MiMi generation 2 has the (+) and (-) but also has a middle button that looks like this(~)  All of the pulsating levels vary depending on the strength behind them, I tend to stay on the higher end of power. When using the Gen 2 MiMi using the plus button is like levels 1-5 on the Gen 1 MiMi. Using the (~) button on the Gen 2 MiMi is like being on levels 6-10 of the Gen 1 MiMi.

Pulsating level 6 – vroomvroomvroom, continuous

Pulsating level 7 –  sounds like a purr to me vroooom (1-2 seconds), continuous

Pulsating level 8 – vroom vroom vroom ( with maybe a 1 sec interval), continuous

Pulsating level 9 – constant buzzbuzzbuzz

Pulsating level 10 – buzz buzz buzz. continuous

You should only use water based lube with MiMi. She can be cleaned with toy cleaner, wipes or soap and water.

 

Pros:

  • quiet
  • discreet
  • powerful
  • rechargeable
  •  waterproof
  • multiple levels

 

Cons:

  • lint magnet
  • may not be pinpoint enough for some
  •  button can be hard to push for some

Length: 3 1/4″

Circumference: 5″

Diameter: 2″

Width: 2″

The set includes:

  • MiMi vibrator
  • US charger
  • Instruction booklet
  • Gift box

Comes in 4 colors: lilac, purple, black and rose

MiMi is one of my favorite toys in my toy box. It is definitely a toy that I would recommend to those who enjoy clitoral stimulation.

Long time no post

In October of 2014, my original domain www.feminiqueshop.com was up for renewal and I missed the deadline, so my registrar wanted me to pay $80 for a domain that should have only cost me $15. They never sent me an email saying that the domain was expiring, only after the fact did I get a notification that it had expired and I could get it back if I paid the $80. I was upset but when I talked to them, they told me I had 2 weeks to come up with the money and I told them that I would. Three days pass and I had the money to pay for it, but when I went to make my payment, the domain was gone from my account. I called them and they told me that a woman named Matija Zajec from Ljubljana, Osrednjeslovenska in Slovenia had bought my domain and taken it over. I was so upset! I was told I had 2 weeks and it was gone in a matter of days.

While I am upset at having to start over, I am excited to finally be back to doing what I love. Over the next few weeks, I will be working hard to restore content that I had on my site, and hopefully get it back to what it once was. In the mean time, I figured that I would welcome any new readers and let you all get to know me again. I started out with adult reviews back when EdenFantasys had an amazing review and points program. It was them who made me decide to start a blog dedicated to adult reviews. I already had another family friendly blog, where I spend most of my time, as it is my full time job, but I wanted something just for me, something more fun and exciting. What could be more fun than testing out sex toys?! Sadly, both their review program and their points program have gone downhill over time. Evenso, I am looking forward to writing again.

My name is Willow and I am a mother and a wife. I have been collecting adult toys for a few years and keep them in crates under my bed. I am looking forward to pulling them all out again and writing about each one, and hopefully adding to my collection, since it has been a while since I got anything new. My favorite toy is the Hitachi Magic Wand, and it is the namesake for my site. I know i shouldn’t, but I always compare other toys to it, and while most of them are fun in their own ways, nothing seems to ever measure up.

Thanks so much for stopping in, I hope to hear from you real soon.

Koa by Picobong

The Koa by Picobong arrived on my doorstep at the most opportune time. I was having a bad day, my internet sucked and to top it all off, it was pouring rain. I had to go out to my car for something and imagine my surprise to find a lonely little box sitting on my back porch. If I had known it was there, it would never have been alone, not in a million years.

I received this lovely sex toy from Babeland to review. This will be my second toy from Babeland, PicoBong and I have not been disappointed at all.  The Koa is  a bullet that measures 3 3/4″ x 1 3/4″. Its diameter is 1″- 2″. It is made of silicone and ABS.  ABS plastic is a mix between elastomer, rubber, and hard plastic which is durable and recyclable.  ABS  toys are phthalate-free and have firm, smooth textures. Using  silicone and ABS means they are  non-porous and don’t need to be used with a condom unless it is a toy that you plan on sharing.

The Koa runs on 1 AAA battery and can be worn around a finger a penis or a dildo. I preferred to use this toy on my finger because it wasn’t comfortable for my partner to place it around the base of his penis. The Koa has 2 buttons to control the vibrations just like on the Honi. The P contains a (-)  and the B contains a (+). Push the plus sign and the speed/intensity goes up, while pushing the minus sign makes it go down in speed/intensity and eventually off. Pushing and holding the plus sign for 2-4 secs changes the vibration. There are 12 vibration patterns and multiple speeds. This is a whisper soft toy that my partner didn’t realize I was using until I told him that it was on. I got a lot of playtime from that 1 AAA battery. Picobong states that 1 AAA should give you 2 hours of bliss. Honestly, I doubt anyone would use it that long, In the span of 1 hour I was satisfied several times over.

If there were gold stars to be given out for impressive sex toys,  Babeland and Picobong would both have tons of them. Not only does Picobong manufacture outstanding toys but they also offer a 1 year warranty against breakage or defects, so be sure to keep your packaging/ paperwork. Babeland gives to charity as well as having a reputation of being a woman-friendly place to buy toys. I wish there was a Babeland‘s store near me so that I could fully experience what it means to be a Babeland shopper. Until such time as that happens I will continue to shop online and let everyone know what a great place to shop online for your toy needs.

Jopen Vanity Vr10.5

Jopen has an addition to their Vanity line, the 0.5 models. The models are 4.5, 5.5, 6.5 and the 10.5. The 10.5, also called the Snow Bunny, comes in a beautifully vibrant purple color. For the first part of my review, I am going to get the specs out of the way.

    •  5.25” x 1.5”/13.25 cm x 3.75 cm (massager)
    • 2.75” x 1.25”/7 cm x 3.25 cm (stimulator)
    • 8.5” x 2.5”/21.5 cm x 6.25 cm (overall)
    • rechargeable and has a complete charge in 4 hours
    • covered in premium silicone that maintains and retains body heat
    • unscented, non-porous, hypoallergenic
    • whisper quiet
    • instant on/off button
    • travel lock
    • dual motors
    • water resistant
    • powered by PowerBullet technology
    • LED Charging and power lights
    • Recharging station
    • One year warranty plus optional 10 year replacement guarantee
The Snow Bunny is made of silicone (body), ABS with PU Cote (base) and silver plating (accents). You should wash this thoroughly before and after each use. Soap and water will do the job, just be sure not to submerge it. To give it a thorough cleaning, try a 10% bleach solution. You should always use water based lube with the Vr 10.5.
Looking at this vibe, just screams luxury to me. The color is bright, vibrant and very pleasing to the eyes. The material is velvety smooth and had very little drag. It has 2 motors, 1 in the shaft and 1 in the clitoral arm. The motor in the shaft makes the shaft gyrate. Both motors have 5 distinct speeds and can be used on whatever level works best for you.  I found that I liked both motors to be on level 5. The motors were very quiet and couldn’t be heard through a closed door. The button closest to the bottom of the vibe, controls the clitoral arm and the other button controls the shaft.
I have used other rabbit vibes before, but never have I had an experience like I had with the Snow Bunny. I don’t recall ever coming to orgasm as fast as I did with this one.  This has very strong, rumbly vibrations. Other than how great this vibe was to use, all of the Vanity line comes with a storage bag that can easily hold the vibe, cradle and charging cord. This is one toy that won’t be far from my bed for a long time to come, if ever. It is one of the top toys that I have tried and I will definitely be looking at more of the Vanity line in the future.
Pros:
  • rechargeable
  • beautiful color and design
  • fits my anatomy
  • strong vibrations
  • travel lock
  • silicone
  • easy to use
  • easy to clean
Cons:
  • only water resistant instead of waterproof
  • is there such a thing as too many orgasms?
  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
I am rating this 5 out of 5 stars. It is everything that I have wanted in a rabbit vibe.
 Thanks go out to Jopen for providing this toy for me to review.

Jopen Vanity Vr6.5

To begin this review I must say that although I had heard many good things about Jopen products, themselves, I had stayed away simply because they were out of my price range.  I guess that is not necessarily true, they weren’t out of my price range, but I was very hesitant to spend that type of money on a toy that I wasn’t entirely sure would fit my anatomy. It is very hard to justify the price, I would be spending when I have heard so many say that it wasn’t right for them.

While researching the toy that I was to review I found out some interesting facts about Jopen that I had never heard before. Jopen is a maker of luxury sex toys, with a product development team that is all women. It also has one of the best warranties in the business, although this wasn’t news to me since I had heard from other users about the awesome warranty.

Jopen toys are covered 100% in silicone. I must admit that all of my favorite toys are made from silicone. I prefer how it feels to everything else that I have tried. The Jopen Vanity Vr6.5 is part of a newly released 0.5 version of previous toys. The 0.5s come in the Vr10.5, Vr6.5, Vr 5.5 and the Vr4.5.

The 6.5 is a beautiful magenta, that is very pleasing to look at. The Vr6.5 is rechargeable. Inside the box you will receive; the Vr6.5, a charger, your instruction/ warranty information, as well as a rather large storage bag. It is a rabbit vibrator that has a vibrating “rabbit” arm and a vibrating shaft. When looking at online pictures of this toy, I thought it was bigger than it actually is. It is the length of my hand and fits very comfortably in my palm. The rabbit arm is slightly thicker than my thumb and the shaft itself is about 1 1/2 times thicker than the rabbit arm. The rabbit arm is very easy to maneuver, so that you can situate it where it is most comfortable for your body.

The Vr6.5 should be charged for 4 hours before using to ensure that it has a full charge. You will know it is done charging when the red light goes off. Before you even think about using this toy, most everyone knows that you should wash it well. I used antibacterial soap with warm water. Normally, I would let a toy air dry, but my precious Vr6.5 is a huge lint magnet when left out in the open. You can use toys wipes or toy cleaners. If you want to sterilize it, use a 10% bleach solution. If you need to use lube, use only water based lube. If this toy is going to be shared, make sure to use condoms.

The Jopen line is powered by Power Bullet technology. The controls are located on the front of the toy,with the charging port on the back of the toy. You will notice that this toy has 2 buttons. One button for the shaft and another button for the rabbit arm. To turn it on press one or both buttons. To increase the vibrations, press and hold the same buttons. To turn it off, press the buttons completely down and release.  I was surprised at how low the sound was. Even with both parts vibrating at their highest level, it is whisper quiet. The only time this toy sounded louder was when I placed it on my bed while the motors were running.

It took me a bit to get used to this toy and I am by no means done with it, but I am still experimenting with the way that suits me best. As of this moment, I don’t think that this toy alone will enable me to orgasm. It is however, a lot of fun to try. While the toy is 6 1/2 inches long, only 4 1/2 inches of that is insertable.

Pros:

  • rechargeable
  • comes with  a storage bag
  • 100% Silicone body
  • Waterproof and Whisper quiet
  • Security travel lock
  • One year warranty plus optional 10 year replacement guarantee

 

Cons:

  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
  • lint magnet
  • only comes in one color
  • price
  • not discreet

While I did add the price as a con, the Vr6.5 is well worth it, at least in my opinion. It is very easy to give this wonderful toy 5 stars. I should say I didn’t GIVE this toy 5 stars, it EARNED every one of those stars. I have no doubt that I will be buying other Jopen toys in the future. I could probably go on and on about the different things that I liked about this toy, but let me just say this, I believe there is a Jopen toy for everyone. There is so much variety with the Jopen line, I would be shocked if anyone couldn’t find at least one toy to make them happy.

The Jopen Vanity Vr6.5 was provided free of charge from SinFreeToys in exchange for an honest review.

Jopen Intensity

I’m sure you know how bad I wanted this thing! I wrote about it so many times! I was approved by Jopen to review it and I was ecstatic! The time it took from when they approved me, to when it was delivered seemed like months! It was only about 2 weeks though.The Intensity was originally created to improve elasticity in the vagina, but during testing, they found that not only did it automatically create kegels, but many of the women testing it, stated that they had intense orgasms that seemed to never end.

After having children, I am not the tightest woman in the world, and I always forget to do my kegels. I have tried Ben Wa Balls and tightening creams, nothing seemed to work. As soon as I heard about the Jopen Intensity, I KNEW I had to make it mine! I really didn’t even care if it didn’t give me the intense orgasms that I heard so many other people talking about, I just wanted to tighten up a bit. From what I have read, many women started noticing huge differences at about 2 weeks of use. And so my trials began.

Day 1 – I lubed it up with the accompanying electrogel, inserted it and started pumping to inflate it a little bit. Then I turned on the electricity. I have read reviews from women, stating that they couldn’t make it past the 4th or 5th level (there are 10 levels of intensity), so I was a bit nervous and started out on level one. I didn’t feel anything, so I bumped it up a notch….nothing on level 2, let’s move to level 3, it must be getting close to the breaking point. NOPE, nothing on level three….this continued all the way through level 10. I FELT NOTHING! So, being very confused, I decided to remove it and test it on my hand, because, well….it MUST be broken! OH NO! I felt it on my hand! Level 3 on my hand was agony! So, then I figured that maybe I just was looser than I thought or something and decided that I would feel something in a few days.

That was the morning of day 1, and I used it for about 30 minutes. I figured that I would use it before bed as well, but try the vibrations with it as well, to see if I would get those intense orgasms. No luck, so I turned the vibration back off and then was going to wait for the 30 minutes to end. Instead, I fell asleep, with it on level 10! I ended up using it for about an hour and a half that night. I woke up when I went to roll over and felt it between my legs. o.O

I was very confused by the fact that I couldn’t feel it inside of me, so I put my finger in next to the Intensity, and I did feel contractions, so it WAS doing what it should have, I just got no sensation out of it.

So, I continued using the Jopen Intensity each day and night for at least 30 minutes (and yes, I fell asleep a few more times) for 2 weeks. Master is completely honest with me, so I knew he wouldn’t lie if I asked him if I felt tighter to him or not. The answer? No. He didn’t notice any difference, and neither did I.

Day and night for a full month, and STILL no change in tightness, no orgasms, nothing! I don’t know….I was so hyped by this toy, that I was crushed when all this time had gone by, with no results.

I decided that I wasn’t going to waste any more of my time on this toy, so a month was all I gave it. Other women reported results in 2 weeks, so I gave it enough of my time, and it let me down.

The outer layer of this toy is a soft silicone, which is body safe. There is no texture to the material. The shaft and rabbit are made of silicone, the handle is made with ABS plastic with a silicone coating, the electro-ads are made of stainless steel, and the inflation release button and battery cap are made of ABS plastic. There is no odor to any part of this toy.

The Jopen Intensity is about 12″ long with 5″ of that insertable. It is a “rabbit” style, so it has a vibrating “finger” on it that is about 2.5″ long and overlaps the shaft by about 2″. In this same are on the shaft, you will find a second vibrator for internal stimulation, should you wish to turn the vibrations on. At about 2.5″ from the base of the shaft, you will find a 1.75″ electro-plate on each side. Deflated, the shaft is 4.5″ around, but it inflates to about 6″.

The handle of the toy has 5 buttons on it, the top one, in the center, is the power button. Once that is on, the others will work properly. Looking at the picture above, the top button on the left, is the electro-shock “Down” and “Off” button when you are scrolling through intensity levels. The one right below it is the “Up” button, for higher intensities. It also functions as the “On” button for the electricity. The first time you push it, it glows red, the second time, it pulses red. Odd numbered levels are a red light, Even numbered levels pulse a red light. The same goes for the right side of the toy; the top button is the “Down” and “Off” button, and the bottom button is the “On” and “Up” button, remember that these controls are going to be facing the other direction while you are using it, so they make more sense when you look at it that way. There are 5 different vibration intensities, with the strongest one being ALMOST as strong as a Pocket Rocket….yea, they are not very strong. On top of that…it was pretty loud.

When this toy is on it’s side, all I can think about is the fact that it looks like a man, about to take a bite of his sandwich….maybe I’m twisted?

The “butt” of this “man” is where you squeeze to inflate the shaft. To deflate it, you push the black button on “his” back.

On the bottom (in the “man’s crotch, if you will) there is a screw cap to hold the batteries in. And right above that is a little hole, where the air is let in and out of the shaft.

The Jopen Intensity takes 3 AAA batteries, and is NOT waterproof. The “Rabbit” on this toy has 2 “fingers” and a “thumb”, with two of them on the topside and the thumb on the bottom.

The section where the handle connects to the shaft is not seamless, which honestly worries me that liquids can get trapped in there, since you can’t really clean inside the groove. Which brings me to cleaning this toy. It is NOT easy to clean. This is because of the ridges in the shaft. You need to inflate it to make cleaning easier, and you have to pay close attention to all the little nooks and crannys. I used toy wipes, and had to wrap them around my nail to get into the smaller spots on this toy. You could also use your favorite toy cleaner or a 10% Bleach Solution, since it is silicone. However, you do not want to boil this or put it in your dishwasher, or submerge it in any sort of liquid, or your $250 toy will be dead…remember, it is NOT waterproof.

Before I start, I want to mention the fact that I got my Intensity directly from Jopen.

Honestly, I don’t care about packages being discreet, but I know MANY people do, so I need to point out that the box this arrived in, VERY CLEARLY stated “Jopen Intensity” on 3 sides of the box! So, I don’t recommend ordering directly from Jopen if this is an issue for you. Grab it from a retail store for a more discreet option.

Want to know the kicker? The 2oz tube of electrogel that comes with it, can not be bought separately! They don’t sell refills! You can, however, get a 4oz tube from Fetish Fantasies for about $9.99.

After a while, I noticed the silicone start to bubble up. It was really hard to get a good picture of it, but I think you can see it in the picture below.

Insignia Oden with SenseMotion by LELO

I was able to request the Insignia Oden with SenseMotion technology from Babeland and I waited patiently ( or I attempted to wait patiently) for it to arrive. Getting the Oden in the mail was very exciting for me, I have never owned a luxury toy before and I was very keen to try it out as soon as I could pry it out of the box. The Isignia Oden by LELO is in a word, beautiful. It comes beautifully packaged in a glossy black cardboard box with pictures of the Oden on it. It also wording on 2 sides with wording that I am assuming tell the contents of the package. I say assuming because none of the wording is in English on those two sides . Inside of the cardboard box was another sturdier box that was completely black with only the word LELO printed on the top in the very middle of the lid. Inside it appeared to be lovingly placed in a black box that will work well for future storage. The box contained on the top layer, the Oden, the remote, and a small pin in the signature LELO design. Beside where the Oden rested is a cardboard piece in black that you could lift where you found that there was a second layer to the inside of this package. In this layer I found the plug for charging the Oden, a plastic key for unlocking the remote, a small silky LELO bag to hold my new toy, a package of LELO personal moisturizer and several small booklets. There was a small do & do not list that made such suggestions as-

Do

  • Apply cleaning solution directly to the silicone
  • Charge unit monthly
  • Ensure that interface is locked between uses

Do Not

  • Do not clean with scouring materials or silicone or alcohol based solutions
  • Do not store in direct sunlight
  • Do not use when plugged in or charging
  • Do not boil any component

The second instructional item in the box is your warranty paperwork, that comes in English, Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian. LELO products come with a 1-year warranty and a 10-year quality guarantee. The 1-year warranty covers working parts that affect the function of the pleasure object. Keep in mind that to use this warranty, you must have your receipt and prove that the defect happened within the warranty period. The 10-year guarantee is a continuation if the 1-year warranty that allows owners of a LELO product  that fails after the warranty is expired, to purchase a replacement at 50% off the listed price. Both of these can be taken care of  through customercare@lelo.com.

The 3rd instructional manual is an Isignia manual from LELO for their SenseMotion products. This manual is also in several languages. It instructs the user on how to put the batteries into the remote, how to use the remote, how to use each toy and how to charge your toy. Each SenseMotion toy may require charging before it can be used.

The first thing that you should do is to charge your Oden. The bottom half of the Oden can be unscrewed by turning placing your fingers on the shiny gold part of the toy and twisting counterclockwise until it releases. Then you will see the spot to insert your cord to charge the toy. When it is plugged into the toy and the wall a light comes on that flashes until the toy is charged. After charging your toy unplug the cord and reconnect your toy by screwing the endpiece clockwise until it is completely screwed in.

The Oden has four parts that you need to be aware of. The pleasure point is located at the tip of the Oden.  The turn on/seek button is located in the middle of the toy on the top side. There is the base attachment that you unscrew to reveal the DC port. The last part is the flexible wearable portion of the Oden.

To use the Oden with the remote, you must first establish a wireless connection from the Oden to the remote. You press the plus (+) sign located on the remote to turn it on. You would then press the turn on/seek button for 1 second to activate your toy and initiate its seek mode. It could take up to 10 seconds for the Oden to locate the remote. When it locates the remote it will flash continually every 2 seconds to indicate that it is functioning and receiving a signal from the wireless controller. The remote has two modes. Mode 1 is active when you hold the remote flat in the palm of your hand. This cause a low vibration that can be felt on the remote as well as the Oden. Tilting causes the vibration intensity to change. Holding it flat puts the vibration at 10% intensity and tilting the remote at about a 45- 90 degree angle changes the intensity to 100%. The second mode is accesible by pressing the middle button that looks a little like an eye. To turn the Oden off press the same button that you use to turn it on and holding it for 2-4 seconds. LELO recommends locking the remote when not in use. To turn the remote off, press the minus (-) sign until all vibrations are stopped. To lock it hold both the plus and minus sign for about 4 seconds. This ensures that the remote doesn’t turn on when you aren’t ready to use it.

Whew, after going through the manual I need a small nap. I really wasn’t in the mood to use it after going through its proper usage, but I was eager to use it at a later date. A few days later I took the Oden out of its box and prepared to have some fun with the husband. I had only used a toy of this type 1 other time when I used the Koa by PicoBong. Which as it so happens is actually a LELO company. One of my complaints with the Koa was the inability to use it for its intended purpose as a cock ring. I didn’t have this problem with the Oden. It fit very comfortably around my husband and we had several enjoyable encounters while using the Oden.

I confess that after trying the Oden I much prefer the second  mode on the Oden. It was very enjoyable to use and although it did not have the power that I prefer but since we used it as a cock ring it was a great addition to our pleasure time.  If one wanted to use this toy solo I would recommend adding a vibrator or dildo because it wasn’t as enjoyable when using the Oden alone. On a scale 1-5 I would use several points to get my overall satisfaction rating.

5 of 5 stars for the design and texture

3 of 5 stars for the power ( mainly the second mode)

5 of 5 stars because of the warranty/guarantee

5 of 5 stars for compatibility

Overall, I was very happy with the product as well as how secure I feel in purchasing future LELO products. I give the LELO Insignia Oden 4 out of 5 stars and that lost star is mainly due to the fact that I prefer more power in my toys. I would gladly shell out the money for a toy of this caliber even with the lower power simply because of the other features. LELO is a company that I will continue to look at for innovative products. I am extremely happy with my Oden. It was very easily cleaned. The Oden is made of silicone and plastic which makes it very easy to clean. I used warm water and soap to clean the Oden. I didn’t use a lube but if you’d like to use one make sure that it is a water-based lubricant.

Indian Spice Love Oil by Good Clean Love

My Indian Spice Love Oil came in a  cute little 2.7 ounce aluminum bottle.

Pungent and Spicy – A sweet balanced heat. A warm desert night, in a far off land, where spoken language is foreign, but the scents around you are reassuringly familiar… These oils were once more precious than gold, so powerful were their aphrodisiac qualities. Indian Spice combines oils which are known for their ability to create a euphoric release of stress and anxiety, as well as providing a new appetite for love and life.

We are very excited about our new Love Oil packaging! In response to the customer feedback, we have moved into a sleek, modern aluminum bottle with a pump top. Equally eco-conscious as glass, these bottles offer a safer container for our precious therapeutic essential oil formulas. They even have a smoother more erotic feel when you hold them and we are confident that they will inspire you to go to a whole new level of intimacy.

Good Clean Love Oils make touching, kissing and smelling each other better. Our oil formulas leave your skin feeling as good as it smells. They are extremely nourishing to the skin, with the ability to soften, smooth and heal the skin. Our essential oil formulas are made with pure essential oils from all over the world. We use organic and wild crafted oils whenever possible.

All Good Clean Love oils are safe to use anywhere on the body. 100% vegan, edible.

 

The above is the product description from the Good Clean Love website. I admit if I were just browsing the site, this description would probably be enough to get me to try the product. While sitting here deciding what I wanted to add to the review, I used some of the oil on my hands.

I can’t stop sniffing my hands, this smells wonderful! 

It isn’t a really strong oil. What I mean by this is that once it starts to absorb into the skin, the smell loses most of its strong odor. I can smell it if I put my hand up to my nose and smell it, but I couldn’t smell it across the room. My skin feels really soft after using the love oil and it is definitely something that I would recommend to others.

  • Natural aphrodisiac aromatherapy
  • Awakens arousal mechanism through scent/touch
  • Creates a sensuous bridge to your partner
  • 100% Natural, vegan and cruelty-free
  • No Petrochemicals and no parabens

Ingredients– Apricot Kernel Oil, Tocopherol, Exotic Blend of Essential Oils, Organic Jojoba Oil

 

I don’t know about the aphrodisiac part of  this equation. Most things that say they have aphrodisiac qualities never seem to affect my spouse or I in a sexual manner. Now that being said, we both enjoyed the smell a lot.

I have to give the Indian Spice Love Oil 5 of 5 stars.

  • it smells wonderful
  • softens skin
  • no parabens or petrochemicals
  • nice packaging

Honi Vibe by PicoBong

I received the Honi Vibe from our partners at Babeland for a review. I was kind of worried at first as this is just a small bullet. I honestly have not had very good luck with bullets. I have the iron clit ‘o steel and not found many bullets that have enough power for me. Sadly, needing such high intensity, this vibe falls short for me. This has some great patterns and is pretty high intensity for new users, but for us who need more this lacks for me.
This toy is teal and color and I wouldn’t say this is waterproof. I did a test to find out if things were able to get into the groove of the lid and the body and found that it does happen. When the lid was removed, the Honi Vibe had a film that had gathered in this ridge. So, unless properly cleaned this space can cause lots of problems with bacteria growing. The other problem lies in the wording on this toy. The little grooves didn’t get cleaned very well with a simple cleaning. I used a q-tip dipped in toy cleaner to make sure these grooves were fully cleaned out.
The Honi Vibe is 6 inches long including the string. The string itself is 2 13/16 inches long. The body of the toy is 3 1/16 inches long. The diameter of this toy at it’s skinniest point is 1/4 inch and 1 1/16 at it’s thickest point. This is made of silicone and abs plastic. Which being silicone means don’t use with silicone lubes.
This isn’t recommended for anal use, so water lube is great for vaginal penetration. This toy does use one AAA battery. The battery compartment is under the screw off cap, and is very slim, just enough room for the battery. When you have the battery inserted correctly, you will be a slight buzz when you put the top back on.
Not being one to read directions before I try out a vibe, I did realize that I couldn’t figure out how to turn the toy on. The Honi Vibe does come with very detailed directions, but I was too excited to read them. After reading them, I did realize that you will find a plus
sign and a minus sign integrated into the words PicoBong on the toy. Holding the plus sign down will allow you to turn on the toy and increase the intensity. After the intensity is on high, holding down the plus sign again for 2 seconds according to the instructions (which I found to be more like 5 seconds) will change the pattern of the buzzing. There are 12 different patterns this toy includes. I get bored after about 5 and just start using it with the pattern I have found. One day I’ll get through all the patterns.
I have tried this toy both externally on the clit and internally vaginally. The string does allow it to be placed internally, but I wouldn’t push it too far into the body. The string isn’t long enough to insert this anally though. There is no flared base and this could get lost within the rectum. I did insert this vaginally with one of the patterns turned on. The pattern can be felt, but not very strong. The vibrations on high are very weak for me. For someone who is very sensitive or a beginner this would be a great toy!
Overall, this toy for a beginner is a 4/5. This is losing stars for the fact that bacteria can get stuck in places if not cleaned properly. For an experienced user, or someone like me who needs powerful vibrations, I would give this a 3/5.
This is losing the second star for the weaker vibration intensity. I would definitely give this as a gift to someone whom is just starting out with toys or is sensitive to vibration intensity.
Babeland is selling this great toy for beginners and sensitive users! Go get yours now!
