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.

Calla Vibe by Fun Factory

I recently received the Calla vibe from Babeland. The Calla vibe is part of Fun Factory‘s line of G4 toys. The Calla has 5 speeds and 3 vibration patterns. It is rechargeable through their patented Click-and-Charge technology.  All of the vibes can be used with the same charging cord.

The Calla is made of high quality silicone, which means that it is durable, hypoallergenic and easy to clean. One negative to the oh so soft feeling of the silicone, it is a dust and fluff magnetic. Calla should be cleaned before and after each use. Calla can be cleaned with mild soap and warm water. I used some of the toy wipes that I had on hand. Fun Factory does offer a cleaner for their toys as well. You should only use water based lubricants with this toy because using silicone based lube could cause your vibe to develop a very unpleasant smell.

It is worth noting that besides the Calla vibe only the Paul and Paulina is  suitable for anal use. This is because the other toys don’t have anything at their base to stop them from being pulled farther into the body by the anal muscles.

Pros-

  • powerful
  • waterproof
  • soft
  • not too big
  • easy to hold on to

Cons-

  • lint magnet
  • can be hand-numbing to use
  • charging time vs. usage time
  • my clit was too far back to get any joy from the protrusion at the base

Overall, I can say that I love this vibe. Yes, I had to use a little lubrication to get started, but it was well worth the effort. I am not really a huge fan of insertable toys, at least ones this size or bigger. The Calla measures with the handle around 9″ long. 5 of those inches can be inserted. The diameter of this vibe is 1 5/8 inches and it is 2 inches wide. Calla starts small at the tip and gradually gets bigger. Its powerful vibrations are a thing of joy for me.  I am not 100% for the boost button either. It worked better for me to start out by pushing the boost button, instead of after I had been using the regular speeds. The patterns were ok, but the speeds got me where I needed to be a lot faster.

Pattern 1- a steady vroooooooommmm

Pattern 2-feels like a fast paced beating drum to me-bumpbumpbumpbump- continuous

Pattern 3- vroomvroom vroomvroom– continuous

If I could increase the intensity of the patterns, I would be more inclined to use them.

Although I want to give this vibe 5 stars, I can’t. Even with the cons that I have listed the major turn off for this toy is that after a minimum of 6 hours of charging time, it only gives me less than an hour to use it.  If I use Calla on high, I can expect around 30 minutes.That makes me very unhappy.  The plus side to this is that it has only died on me once. I know some of you are wondering how this could ever be a plus. Its a plus because I listened more carefully to how it sounded and I knew when it was starting to get low on juice.

Black Label Jack Rabbit Anniversary Edition

For this month’s CalExotics Sexpert review, I received the Black Label Jack Rabbit Anniversary Edition. There are so many rabbits on the market right now, so you should research a while before picking one out. The BLJR is a dual stimulation vibe, which is my preference these days. It also has two other traits that are my preferences, it’s waterproof and it is made of silicone.

Being that it is made of silicone, it is only compatible with water based lubricants. The tip of this rabbit is slightly rounded and looks realistic.  It has a ridge down the middle of the shaft as well, which I couldn’t feel once the toy was inserted. The shaft has a swirled design, that is purely decoration and gives no added stimulation.

The Jack Rabbit was very easy to use. The control panel is made of ABS plastic. The Jack Rabbit has 5 buttons on the control panel located at the base of the shaft. The middle button is the power button, which has to be pushed before any of the other buttons will work. The top button controls the 7 functions of vibration for the rabbit arm. The two buttons at the bottom increase or decrease the shaft’s rotation and vibration. The vibrations of the clitoral arm and the shaft can be used together or separately, depending upon user preference. The rabbit runs on 3 AA batteries. The battery cover was a bit of a pain to open and close.

The shaft is thick and gave a very full feeling when inserted. Starting out I had to use a bit extra lube, because of the thickness of the shaft. The rotations were an added bonus for me. To get any enjoyment from the clitoral arm took quite a bit of maneuvering for me. It is not something that will fit every woman’s anatomy perfectly, so you may have to play with it a bit, to figure out what works best for you.

Pros:

  • easy to use
  • easy to clean
  • dual stim
  • thick
  • silicone
  • waterproof- no difference in strength when underwater that I noticed

 

Cons:

  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
  • lint magnet
  • 3 AA batteries
  • rather loud

Overall, I would say that this is definitely one that I would consider purchasing. The Jack Rabbit should be stored away from other toys, preferably in a cloth bag. Be warned it is a lint magnet, but then again I have noticed that most of my silicone toys are. It is a turnoff that it requires 3 AA batteries, but there is a rechargeable version of this vibe available for an extra chunk of change. It is easy to clean, whether it be with soap/water, toy cleaner or toys wipes. The major downside of this rabbit for me, was the loudness of the toy itself. If you’re using this and don’t want anyone to know, be sure to turn on some music before getting started to muffle the sound.

Thanks CalExotics for providing this to review!

Alise vibrating massager from New Sensations

The Alise vibrating massager is from New Sensations. It is available from Eden Fantasys in 2 colors, pink and purple. While I was very excited to try this massager, I was disappointed by its lack of power as well as the neck of the massager being much too flexible for my tastes. I prefer firmer more powerful vibes for my sex play. I received this from Eden Fantasys in exchange for an honest review, you can read my entire review here.

Settings on Ali’se
Level 1- low – 1 vroom/1 bee
Level 2- medium – 2 vrooms/ 1 bee
Level 3- high – 3 vrooms/ 1 bee
Level 4- slow build with long buzz at the end -bzbzbz…bzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Level 5- bzz bzz bzz- continuous
Level 6- bz bz bz – continuous
Level 7- bzz bzz bzz bzzzzzzz- at 4 maybe 5 sec intervals

*When you turn it off/on, it starts over at the lowest level.* 

Pros:

  • body safe silicone
  • rechargeable
  • waterproof
  • quiet
  • easy to use
  • easy to clean

Cons:

  • too flexible neck
  • large head

Key points:

  • material safety rating of 10 on EF scale
  • Length: 7 1/2″
  • Insertable length: 5 1/2″
  • Circumference: 5 1/2″
  • Diameter: 2″
  • Weight: 0.75 lb
  • Functions: Escalating / Pulsating / Rollercoaster
  • Special Features include: Light indicators, Multifunction, Multispeed, Quiet
  • Waterproof
  • Controlled by a built in control pad
  • Rechargeable

While it had many of the features that most people would look for: rechargeable, waterproof, whisper quiet ( and I do mean whisper quiet), it lacks the power that many of us crave. This makes it less likely that I would use this toy as my go-to option. It was disappointing, to say the least.
