Massager

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.

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.

Advanced Risqué Dual Teasers

This month’s selection from the CalExotics Sexpert program is the Advanced Risque Dual Teasers. The dual teasers are independently controlled dual massagers that are available in black, purple and blue. The bigger bullet  or standard sized teaser has 5 speeds, while the smaller bullet has 5 levels of vibrations/pulsations and escalations. The This particular toy is made from  body safe materials. It is made from ABS plastic and covered in PU cote. It is not a waterproof bullet. It’s very easy to clean; I either use warm soap and water or a toy wipe.  It is best to clean it before and after each use, to get the most out of your bullet. I use water based lubricants with most of my toys, because with water based lube, I can be sure that my toys are safe from degrading. It runs on 3 AAA batteries. It was very easy to use, mainly because it only had 2 buttons. I actually enjoyed the simplicity in this part of its design.

Now I am going to go through what I liked and disliked about this product.

Pros:

  • It has a decent amount of power
  • the PU has no drag to it
  • easy to use
  • easy to clean
  • easy to store

Cons:

  • I don’t care much for the dual bullets
  • I am not one for vibrations/pulsations/escalations

 

I am honestly getting a little fed up with most bullets. I like a good bit of power and I prefer a strong stimulation over any type of patterns. Simply give me a good balance between low-medium-high and I will be satisfied. The smaller bullet was a little too thick to be comfortable on my clit. I preferred the standard sized bullet; the smaller one was just in the way. I  wish that I could find a rechargeable bullet. That is something that would make me so happy to find. For now, I try as many toys as possible, hoping to find the right fit for my body.

Thanks again, to California Exotics for providing this item through their Sexpert review program.

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!
