Precious Metals Jewels Pleasure Pak

This month from CalExotics I received the Precious Metals Jewels Pleasure Pak. This tiny bullet packs a helluva PUNCH. Available in purple, pink or blue, it weighs in at only 1.7 ounces. It is made of ABS plastic. It is very safe to use. ABS plastic is hypo-allergenic, latex free and phthalates free. It is smooth and has no extra textures to it.

The bullet uses 2 AAA batteries and has 1 button to turn it on & off or increase vibrations/patterns. To turn it on or off, simply hold the button for a few seconds, until it turns on/off. To go up in levels, just keep pressing the button until you find the level that is right for you. You can’t go back in levels, but you can scroll through them until you get back to where you want to be. Be sure to count the levels when you turn it on, so you know which levels you like best.

The remote is about 5 inches long. The bullet part is 2 inches long and can be inserted. This little guy is so powerful that I found it a little too intense for me to have it inserted. It works very well stimulating your clit, but when you get wet or sweaty this little guy is hard to hold on to, so I recommend having a small cloth handy to wipe it off when you need to. There are ten levels.

1. Vibration (high)
2. Vibration (medium)
3. Vibration (low)
4. Gradient burst
5. Intermittent
6. Surge
7. Intra-surge
8. Even step
9. Roller coaster spurt
10. Pulsate

My favorite from the above list are levels 1,6,7 and 9. They seem to be the most powerful levels. This bullet is powerful enough to numb you if you use it for a long period of time.

Clean up is a snap to get done.  You can use soap and water or toy wipes to get the job done. If you plan on sharing toys be sure to cover with a condom, if you can find one to fit this little guy. I suggest storing this vibe in a cloth bag if possible, if not a ziploc bag should work just fine for this toy.

The bullet arrives in a plastic shell inside of a see through plastic box. If you are very careful with it this box can last a while but be warned, it isn’t the sturdiest box to store a toy in.

Overall, I would have to rate this toy 5 out of 5 stars. It can be very loud, although I don’t think it can be heard behind closed doors. To be on the safe side, whenever I am using toys, I always turn on my music or noise machine to drown out the noise coming from my toys. I can honestly say that the last 2 bullet that I have adored have been CalExotic bullets so I am not that surprised that I would love this one too.

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.

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.

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
  • Do not overextend flexible portions of Tiani and Oden
  • Do not use items such as coins or screwdrivers to open controller

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.

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!

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.

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!
