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!

10 Function Tantric Chakra Massager

Here we are again, in my seemingly unending quest for the perfect sex toy. We turn our minds and bodies to the bullet vibrator. A bullet vibrator can be used on your clit or inserted vaginally. I prefer to use my bullets on my clit. Sometimes I use it during sex with my husband for the added enjoyment of both of us. A bullet is a great start to your collection or even a great addition to your already burgeoning collection.

A bullet was the very first toy that I ever tried and it reeled me in before I ever realized what was happening. I love being married and I love having a toy collection. Although it is a very small collection- it’s mine and I love it dearly. It really shocked me how much more enjoyable toys can make your sexual life.

It wasn’t specifically the bullet above, although it looks very similar, minus the “jewels”. It was a great little bullet, but I HATED that it used watch batteries. I didn’t actually hate it enough to stop using it. It was a kinda grudging love/hate relationship that we had going on. Picture me a few, okay more than a few, years later. I was frustrated about my lack of sex toys, due in part to bad customer service from an as yet unnamed source. I began to look around for places to purchase toys again and I landed on a wonderful little site, that shall not be named. One thing I did notice was that I was drawn to Cal Exotics. Their toys seemed to call to me and wonder of wonders, I realized that the beloved bullet that I was so hung up on was a Cal Exotics toy. I began to research more of their toys and I found that most of the toys that I find so enjoyable are also Cal Exotics toys.

Sorry, that I have let this story drone on, but what I wanted to say before I got into the actual review part of this story, is that Cal Exotics is a wonderful company filled with so many wonderful toys. Every toy that I have isn’t Cal Exotics but without the wonderful little bullet that started my magical journey into the sex toy world, I might not be here today writing these reviews.

The 10 Function Tantric Chakra Massager from Cal Exotics has a cute little design, that catches my eye. The one that I received for review from the wonderful Nichole at Cal Exotics, is a lovely shade of purple. It is available from CalEx in red, pink and purple. The bullet part is 2 inches long and all of that 2 inches can be inserted. It uses 2 AAA batteries for its vibrating, escalating and pulsating patterns. The bullet is made of PU coated plastic. PU coated plastic can be cleaned using warm soap and water or a toy cleaner. You can use water-based or silicone-based lubes with this toy. It is very easy to operate, since it only has one button that scrolls through the different levels and turns it off if you hold it down for 3 seconds. The bullet plugs into the remote on the end opposite where you insert the batteries. The remote has a beautiful heart based design over purple plastic. The handle itself is about the length of a typical cell phone and fits comfortably in my hand.

I would say, for inexperienced users, the Tantric Chakra Massager is a good bullet to start with. It’s vibrations aren’t too strong and the patterns can help you to decide what your body enjoys. For advanced users I feel that there is simply not enough power backing up this cute little toy.

Level 1- high

Level 2- medium

Level 3- low

Level 4- steady pulsating that reminds one of a revving engine, although not as loud- medium power

Level 5- low continuous buzzbuzzbuzzbuzz

Level 6- high continuous buzzbuzzbuzzbuzz

Level 7- medium continuous vibration

Level 8- medium continuous buzzbuzzbuzzbuzz

Level 9- buzz buzz buzz buzz

Level 10- low continuous vibration

This doesn’t have enough power to keep me very interested for long. I also noticed a rather annoying high pitched whine that comes from the bullet on the lower levels. When I say high pitched, I don’t mean really high pitched. I guess what I mean is that it is a little intense. Intense enough that I don’t think I could stand to use this during sex, it would completely kill the mood for me.

If you want a great bullet with a lot of power, my favorite right now is the Bound By Diamonds- Diamond Teaser. It is very powerful, runs on 3 AAA batteries and has 5 speeds of intense vibration.

On a scale of 1 – 5 stars, I rate the 10 Function Tantric Chakra Massager a 3.5. I like the way it looks and how easy it is to use. It doesn’t use too many batteries and it is just the right size for the bullets that I like. It just doesn’t have enough power for me and there wasn’t enough variation in the different levels.  Oh well, I guess it is back to my Bound by Diamonds- Diamond Teaser for now.

Gothic Black Silk And Satin Peep Toe Stiletto High Heel Shoes

Of course, their stock photo looks 100% better than I could ever do, so this just gives you a point of reference and you can see the details on the shoe.

I recently joined a Fashion Blogger program for Milanoo. I ordered the Gothic Black Silk And Satin Peep Toe Stiletto High Heel Shoes. I was unsure if what I would receive would be good quality. I didn’t need to have worried about it. The shoes that I received were beautiful and although the fit is probably at the end of what I am able to wear, I am very happy with them. I was a little afraid to go up a size since I don’t know a lot about how they size shoes overseas. I now know that when I order some shoes, I can go up to the next size, if the next size available is European size 40 ( US size 9.5) and they will fit just fine. Now, all I need to do is get used to walking in heels this high. These shoes went just fine with my jeans and I am sure they would look great with dresses/skirts as well.

I would say on a scale from 1-5, I am definitely a 5. I am very happy with what I received. Milanoo has a wide variety of clothing, shoes, costumes, wigs, home fashions and bags. Just know that Milanoo is overseas, so know that the shipping times to the US may be longer than you are accustomed to. Until August 15, they are having a Goodbye Summer Sale, where you can purchase items for up to 50 percent off.

Good Clean Love Vanilla Chai body candy

Vanilla Chai body candy smells AH-MAZING! A very spicy vanilla that I just adore. It really bothers me that this was as far as my like went for this. The nice smell was the only thing that really stood out for me with this product.

Written on the back of the container:

Experience a whole new kind of candy with the one you love. Enjoy an entirely new flavor of kiss or as a topping for all your lover’s most kissable spots. Apply generously before kissing.

*Not for use internally. If irritation should occur discontinue use immediately.*

INGREDIENTS

Avocado Butter, Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Candelila Wax, Essential Oil Blend,Lecithin, Tocopherol, Stevia Extract

The website also lists Isopropyl Myristate as one of the ingredients, but it isn’t listed on the container itself.

There were a few things that stood out to me as rather odd. First, I will ask a question. When you kiss your spouse/lover, is it just a peck or are there tongues involved? I know when I kiss my husband, tongues are definitely involved. Next question is, would you say that having the body candy in your mouth is using it internally? I would ( some may consider me a little weird, I consider myself A LOT WEIRD). So how can it be edible when it’s not supposed to be used internally? I know some of you are saying to yourselves that I am over-thinking this and internally means inside your privates ( my husband said this to me as well). Honestly for me, if it says to put on kissable spots and also says not to be used internally, I would not use this at all.

Let me be clear, I AM QUIRKY!

For something that calls itself body candy that is supposed to be put on kissable spots before you “kiss” it from your partner’s body I expect it to taste great as well as being very safe for your body. I wouldn’t consider using this because I would be very nervous about getting any kind of residue from this on my or my spouse’s naughty bits. I would question the safeness of using such a product. The second thing that I was questioning is, if this is edible- why doesn’t it have a taste? I tried it several times; I put it on my lips several times with nothing resembling a taste. Heck, I just stuck my tongue in the tin to see if I could get a taste from that, NOTHING! I may be the one person that this product simply doesn’t work for.

Reasons to love products from Good Clean Love-

♥ No petrochemicals or parabens which irritate sensitive tissue

♥ Organic solutions to common sexual dysfunction issues

♥ Natural Ingredients

♥ 100% Vegan

♥ Cruelty Free

♥ Edible

I absolutely adore the lube that I received with this package, but I simply couldn’t find much of anything that I liked about the body candy other than its smell. As a consumer, I would not buy this product. It simply isn’t for me. I would have to give this product 2 of 5 stars. 1 star for the reasons I listed above about loving products from this company and 1 star because I liked the smell. While the idea of this product may have been a winner, for me the execution fell short.

Good Clean Love Cinnamon Vanilla personal lubricant

When I smell Good Clean Love Cinnamon Vanilla personal lubricant, I think of cookies. That’s right, I said COOKIES! That makes me happy. I love associating lube with a happy feeling ( and cookies definitely make me very happy!). It makes me more likely to use it when it doesn’t make me smell like a medicine cabinet or something else equally distasteful.

I was supposed to review the, My Spicy Valentine kit for, you guessed it, Valentine’s Day. Due to some crossed wires I wasn’t able to receive it in enough time to do this and it has taken me this long to get to this review because I wanted to do it justice. In order to do that and to apologize for not getting the review up sooner, I have decided to split each item up and do individual reviews. Yes, it comes as a kit, but you can buy all of the items separately.

To use this lube simply apply it to you and/or your partner/toy. Reapply as necessary and enjoy.

The lube that I received to review came in a 4 ounce green and white bottle, the tip of which, was sealed under the cap. I have used this on my toys as well as when I was with my husband. He even enjoyed the smell of it. I put about the same amount on my toys as I would toothpaste across my toothbrush.  While it would be wonderful if I had something to heat my lube with, it heated up fast enough after I got started. After using this many times, I find that I haven’t wanted to use anything else. It smells great, it’s natural and I only had to reapply it 1 or 2 times ( and that was after an hour or so of play). I have noticed that I sometimes have a white residue on my skin after playtime and I honestly can’t say whether that is from the lube or my own natural juices. It is not enough of an issue for me to stop using this product. Most people clean up after sex and if I don’t feel up to doing it, I am probably not going anywhere anyway, so who cares.

A 4 oz. bottle of Cinnamon Vanilla normally runs you about $14.oo but as of the writing of this review it happens to be on sale for half that. Disclaimer: I don’t know when the sale started but it ends on April 25, so stock up now! It’s great on sale, but honestly for a good quality lube, I kind of expect to pay a higher price.

Good Clean Love Cinnamon Vanilla Personal Lubricant-

Why I am giving it 5 of 5 stars-

  • Smells good
  • I don’t have to use a lot
  • It lasts a long time
  • it’s made of 95% Organic Ingredients
  • Safe with my toys

Cons:

I honestly have none…

Glass Sex Toys – Not like walking on broken shards with your vagina

It is a goal of mine to collect the entire Icicles line, kinda like Pokemon. When I came across this site (no pun intended), I knew I had to share their Glass sex toys page with you all. It’s a full page of Icicles! I was in heaven!

And this is the cool thing about this site. You will find scratch off tickets, and when you drag the dime over the scratch off are, you will reveal a special code off your order. I got 10% off $25 or more, which makes this dildo $41.40. That is almost $10 off other sites I have seen this on!

Most glass dildos are made from borosilicate glass, which is inorganic and non metallic. This is great in my opinion, because they are SO EASY to clean! They are generally smooth and nonporous, so you can use soap and water or toy cleaner on them and not have to worry about them getting ruined. You can also use any type of lube that you want. My favorite kinds of lube are silicone based, but that can’t be used with silicone toys, due to possible destruction of them.

Now, I had one person who cringed at the thought of glass toys when I talked about them. To quote her, “You know that scene in Die Hard when Bruce Willis is walking across the broken glass in his bare feet? My vagina is thinking about that scene.” I laughed so hard when she told me that.

The thing about glass sex toys is that they are very hard, and have a high chemical resistance and mechanical strength. It works well with temperature changes and can handle a fall or two. If it were to break, it would break into chunks instead of shatter or splinter, so there is no worries of your vagina having to walk across broken glass. Also, your body is much softer than the glass, so there is little to no change of you breaking it while masturbating. I know, when I first heard of glass toys, I thought these same things, so it isn’t uncommon, but it is just a fear that holds no weight. Glass is now my favorite sex toy material!

G4 Big Boss Vibe

POW! Definitely the first words that came to mind when I saw this vibe. It’s a nice size and the silicone gives it just enough drag to make you feel wonderful. I’m talking about the G4 Big Boss Vibe that Babeland supplied for this review. I was so excited to get this and when the box came I don’t think I could have torn open the paper and box faster. Sadly, I didn’t read the directions well, and couldn’t figure out how to charge this. This was my first rechargeable vibe, and I definitely was impressed. I didn’t think a toy without batteries or being plugged into the wall was going to be good, but this definitely was. Measuring in at 9 3/4″ long and 1 3/4″ wide, I was definitely ready to try this out. Boy, I was disappointed in the fact I had to wait, it needed charging first.

I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to charge this. The directions are very tiny, and there wasn’t any clear direct direction on how to plug this in. There was no port to plug anything in, and the charger was just some metal prongs. I tried and tried and tried to figure out how to charge this. After 1/2 hour, and help from another friend. We both felt really stupid when we realized that the word “FUN” on the front of the toy were metal, not silver color, and that is how you charge this toy. Well, off the toy went to the bedroom for a long charging and my impatience had to sit still for a couple hours.

Finally, it was time to try out one of the toys I had been waiting for for a long time. My partner and I were really surprised at the weight of the toy, but how easy it was to use. You can use lube with this, but only water lube, as silicone lube will break this down, as it’s a 100% silicone toy. Well, they say 100% silicone, but the handle is plastic and metal. I love how the handle is actually a loop handle instead of just something to hold on to. It made thrusting sooooo much easier. I have to say, having the excitement of getting to use this toy, we didn’t need any lube at all.

Very amazing feeling, and helped fill me up greatly. The G4 Big Boss is a great one to be able to work up to fisting too. The length of this was amazing, and the head of this was shaped like an actual penis head. The silicone was amazingly firm yet pliable, so that it didn’t hurt when thrusting. This is though, one of those toys that you would definitely want to work up to using if you aren’t used to larger toys. With the girth being 1 3/4″, it’s not the size of your normal toy. You want to be careful with thrusting, as with any toy, about hitting the cervix, you can cause damage, or permanent harm to the body. This toy can be used anally, but I would suggest using a condom unless that is the only way and only person this toy is going to be use for. This toy cannot be worn as a plug, but it really doesn’t have the possibility of getting lost inside the rectum. This toy is a tad bit too big for that possibility.

The controls were pretty easy to use. The buttons are on the handle and are touch activated. You really don’t have to push hard to get them to respond. They do light up so that it is possible to use this in the dark. You have a + sign, a – sign and a * sign on the handle for buttons. The star sign and the plus sign both can turn on the toy. The minus sign turns off the toy when held down and brought down to the lowest setting and then off. The plus sign increases the intensity of the toy. The star sign changes the patterns of the toy. Yes, this toy even has patterns. Honestly, they are patterns I’ve not seen in another toy. They aren’t your normal ones either. The patterns are as follows: bzzzzzz, stronger bzzzzzz, bzz bzzz bzz bzz bzzz, 3 quick bzz repeating, and low bzz getting higher then starting over.

The G4 Big Boss is not loud. It could be heard through a blanket but not through a door. Sadly, the highest setting can begin to numb your hand after a little bit. We decided to use this toy without the vibrations because the toy itself had more than enough sensation with the ridges along the length of the toy. The penis head also strokes the G spot just right, and if used well could cause squirting with the right person.

The funnest part of this toy, was when my partner decided she just couldn’t to see what the toy felt like herself. She thrust the toy inside me then herself. OMG the feeling was amazing and didn’t hurt at all. This toy was firm but pliable enough to do double vaginal penetration with. She said that the feeling was wonderful for her too. The toy didn’t hurt against her skin and didn’t hurt when thrusting either.

Overall I’d give this toy a 4 out of 5 stars. Only because the directions were not clear on how to charge this, which had little effect on the stars. The main reason this went down in stars is the fact this toy causes the hand numbing sensations. I hate that in a toy, and it causes me
to want to use the vibrations less. I love toys that the vibration is in the head or body of the toy and less in the handle of the toy.

This toy I would recommend and have recommended to friends.

Fifty Shades of Grey – Book vs. Movie

I have seen it all over my facebook timeline “Fifty Shades promotes abuse” and I didn’t understand it. I figured that maybe they didn’t understand BDSM and the care put into it. BDSM is not abuse, it is the exact opposite of that. The book, in my opinion, did a pretty good job of showing what BDSM is. There was talks beforehand, there was ample aftercare and there was an intimate connection between both parties. None of this was seen in the movie. I watched the movie this morning; I know, I’m a little late here, but I wasn’t comfy watching it in the theaters and I am really glad that I decided to wait to be able to watch it from home. Having been in an abusive relationship in the past, and being in a BDSM relationship currently, there are HUGE differences between the two. The main part is consent. With my husband, I have full control to not have control. I know for those who haven’t participated in BDSM, that may sound a little strange, but that’s how it is, the sub has all the power, even though it doesn’t seem that way. In an abusive relationship, the controller (I won’t give them the title of Dom, they don’t deserve it) has the power and takes control away from the victim.

The issues I have with the movie are that they left out some of the main things that makes a relationship BDSM, and by leaving them out, it shows an abusive relationship. While reading the book, I stopped quite a few times to play. It was a fun and engaging read. However, with the movie, I wanted to cry and hide. I wanted to punch Christian in the face. I am writing this post within minutes after finishing the movie and my emotions are all over the board. It is hard to describe, but I get it now. I understand all those facebook posts exclaiming Fifty Shades to be abuse. If someone didn’t read the book, and only watched the movie, that’s all they see. Christian has the power, he doesn’t give Anna a choice. He love bombs her as a narcissist does and she, even though she is upset, falls for the love bombing and stays.

Now, for those of us who read the books, we know that the elevator scene at the end of the movie is not where it ends, and I think that also pushed me in the wrong direction. It was an awful ending all around. I beg those who have not read the book, to please do so, and do so quickly. Then do some research on proper BDSM relationships, because the movie is NOT what we live. I honestly feel very violated after watching it, and not in a good way. It brought up so many bad feelings of my abusive relationship. I know that this isn’t a very well put together post, but that is because I literally put no thought into it. I just started typing and let my emotions come out through my fingers. I don’t know if they intend to release more movies, but if they do, I sincerely hope they do a better job of explaining BDSM. The boks were supposed to bring BDSM into normalcy, they WERE opening minds and sales of erotic toys and including bondage devices were increasing. People were rethinking things and seeing the joy that could come of power play and I think the movie destroyed that. I know that I, for one, would have NEVER considered a BDSM relationship if all I knew of it was the movie. I am sorry, but I just can not recommend the movie to anyone. I can, however, recommend the books. Please read them, read all of them and see what this lifestyle can actually be like. Go on FetLife and read stories of power play relationships. Meet up with locals who partake, but do not watch the movie and think that is how things are.

Encounter: Ultimate Anal Lube

Today our review is brought to us by the amazing people at Lucky Bloke.

This is some AMAZING lube. I didn’t really have high hopes for it, as many lubes claim so much, but I was willing to give another lube a try. Boy, was a shocked when this lube did more than just lubricate!

The Encounter: Ultimate Anal Lube was something I had not had high hopes for because it claimed to help relax the muscles with mint extract. I’ve read way too much claims for such things as relaxing the muscles and the lube FAILING majorly. This lube DIDN’T fail. It made GREAT strides in an anal lube that does help make anal SO much better.

This lube claims to be thick, and my dear it’s thick but not to the point of not being able to use it. This is thick but silky. Doesn’t make you feel like you’re using a water based lube at all. This has the consistency of a silicone lube but is a water based lube. So yes, this lube is silicone toy safe! This lube is also considered latex safe as well!

The ingredients are listed as (paraben free! glycerin free! and vegan friendly): Water, Propylene, Glycol, Hydroxyethylicellulose, Butylene glycol, Carbomer, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Eugenia, Caryophyllus Flower Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, PEG-45M, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Triethanolamine, DMDM Hydantoin, Sodium benzoate.

This bottle is great too! It is a pump not a squeeze bottle. I have found this is so much easier when dealing with lube because you don’t have to hold the bottle to get the lube out. Has a great hard clear cap over it too, so it doesn’t leak anywhere. The bottle is 2oz and it goes REALLY far. We have used it quite a few times and have barely made a dent into the bottle. This on their website only goes for 6.99! This is an amazing deal! They offer condoms to be bought with all your orders too!

Now, I bet you’re all still wondering about this mint extract right? Never thought something as simple as mint could help relax the muscles for anal at all. BUT my partner and I decided to use this, and she didn’t even realize I had entered her. She was so shocked and loved the feeling it gave her. No tingling or anything odd feeling. She just relaxed very quickly. I would suggest this for anyone who needs something to help them get over the pain from anal.

Lucky Bloke was awesome in sending me this lube and I am going to be getting more from them soon! I can’t wait to try more of their products. Check out their website and make sure you order yours now!

Couture Collection Eclipse from California Exotic Novelties

Being a woman with children, I am very concerned with my inner parts. I am not the same person, that I was in my twenties. There are things that we can do to get back into shape, whether it be regular exercise or eating right. A woman can do vaginal exercise with or without equipment.  The Couture Collection Eclipse from California Exotic Novelties is just such a piece of equipment. Whether you are using this to strengthen your vaginal muscles or for pleasure, this is an easy and affordable way to go.

Made of plastic and silicone, the Eclipse is lightweight, easy to use and easy to care for.  This is the first set of vaginal balls that I have tried, but it won’t be my last. After getting over being afraid to use these, they looked very big to me when I first placed them in my hand, I grabbed my lube and went about testing this set of vaginal balls. This takes a bit of maneuvering and a good bit of lube, at least for your first try.  First one ball, then the other and I hardly knew they were there. There is very little weight to this set of balls, they are only 2.8 ounces. I walked around with the balls inserted for most of the day, and I can honestly tell a difference already. The Man and I started what we thought would be a quickie before bed and WOW! I can only imagine what sex will be like after I make a concerted effort to exercise every day. Not only did I notice a difference, but The Man did as well.

After using this, I was able to clean it with soap and warm water, although toy wipes or toy spray would also be effective. I put this in a cloth bag that I had on hand, but it can very easily be put in a side drawer out of the way. I am not sure that too many people would know what this is just by looking at it. The balls come in a small, white cardboard box, that could also be used for storage.

Pros:

  • reasonable price
  • lightweight
  • easy to use and clean
  • ABS plastic with Japanese medical grade silicone
  • comfortable

Cons:

  • a little afraid of the cord snapping, it felt a little flimsy
  • some may need a little more weight for the vaginal balls to be effective
