#SoSS Share Our Shit Saturday; making time to share after a hiatus.

Saturday 16th December 2017

It’s nearly the end of the year, my fledgling year as a Sex Blogger, and I’ve just realised nearly a month has passed since my last S0SS post! That simply won’t do. As it’s the season of goodwill and sharing, I wanted to write about some posts I’ve checked out. Like some of my Christmas shopping, my ‘blogsearch’ has been somewhat last minute. I know, I know, preparation really is the key to a successful blog and a regular following. I will make it my mission in the New Year to try to be better at reading other blogs.

Without further ado, here’s a glimpse of what I’ve browsed in the sex blogging world…The first post I wish to highlight is a summary of the Wasteland Fetish Party in Amsterdam (held in November), by Tess. The theme of the party was Burton-esque styling, as in the film director Tim Burton. This theme sounds like it was a sensory amazement. Just reading about Tess’s experience of the Wonderland-inspired setting made me wish I could have been there. I like the idea of such a theme (for obvious reasons), and the way the theme complements the event. Both Wonderland and the Fetish Party are fantasy places. You can fully immerse yourself and forget about your real-life issues, as you explore kink and adult entertainment in a safe environment.

The second blog post that caught my attention was Cara Sutra’s Why I Hate Vibrating Cock Rings (& What We Use Instead). This article made me smile in an ironic way, because as I read about Cara’s frustrations, I realised I was nodding my head. She hits the nail on the head with her blasting of the dubious cock-ring materials, weak buzzy vibrations that are completely ineffective in the throes of a good shagathon and the crappy batteries that fly everywhere on opening the toy up.

I whole-heartedly agree that much more stimulating sexy playtime can be attained with the use of a decent bullet or wand vibe (position-dependent, of course). Regular non-vibrating cock rings are also fantastic for maintaining the erection of the penis-bearing partner. Cara doesn’t slate all vibrating cock-rings. She gives credit to the ones that do actually work for her. Hopefully by sharing this post from Cara, we’ll get the word back to sex toy manufacturers that we require better designs  for vibrating cock-rings.

Lastly, I will share Pillow Princess Review’s One Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway.  For the Giveaway, Pillow Princess is offering a reshapeable Dodil up for grabs. I have reviewed the Dodil, and it is such a  fun innovative toy to shape and also to masturbate with. If you want a chance to win, you’ll need to enter using her link or the Gleam widget. The giveaway is open internationally and will end on the 11th January. You could start 2018 with one super cool sex toy, so what are you waiting for? Apart from Christmas!!

Until next time, keep reading and enjoying our ‘shit.’

 

 

Relationships require work!

Quiet Reflections from Bunny

It’s been a while since I posted some of my musings. My posts of late have generally been reviews. Lucky me to have all these lovely toys to try,  and to tell you about! I appreciate for some of my readers, reviews can get a bit repetitive perhaps. They like to know a bit more about the writer behind the blog, and what makes them tick.

Whilst we’re on the ‘clock analogy; ‘I’m not exactly a ‘spring chicken’ but I do have yet to be past my ‘prime time.’ I have a few miles on me, some well-travelled; others less so. One thing I’ve learnt in my 35 years, is that if we are to live our lives to the fullest, we need to make an effort! Whether that’s a phone call with a friend we perhaps contact a couple of times a year. Or getting something special for our significant other. No matter how small or grand the gesture, it will likely be noticed.

Moreover, said effort will be appreciated. You may well be thinking, “well, I’ve not heard from so-and-so in the past 6 months. Why should I bother making the first move?” The answer could be as simple as they’ve had a really stressful or busy time. They’ve been working all hours; any free time they have is spent ‘catching up’ on life stuff or resting. Someone close to them could be unwell and depending on your friend for day-to-day help. So many reasons. Notice I say reasons. Not excuses. There’s a difference.

Excuses, excuses…

Passing up on an invitation because you’re comfortable at home and you really can’t be arsed to get dressed up and go out is an excuse. Not getting a gift or card for someone because you ‘had a lot to do’ is also an excuse. It also makes the statement, “you are not special enough to me to make the time to either come out with you or get a token surprise for you.” A pretty powerful statement.

So far I’ve been taking about general relationships. Both with friends, family and with significant others. I want to focus on the latter. How you get on with your significant other. I use this term, since you may or may not be married. You may or may not be co-habiting. And lastly I believe you are two individual people, so you are not the other one’s ‘other half.’

A contractual partnership

I happen to be married to my significant other, so that is my personal experience. We were not always married though. I did realise that marriage is ‘only a piece of paper.’ It wasn’t a contract saying my husband or I had to change ourselves to be more acceptable to the other. Nor was it a label saying that we ‘owned’ each other. We are still very much individuals. What it was and still is, however, is a contract saying that we will love, respect and cherish the other through sickness and in health, through good times and bad.

We invited our family and friends to be witnesses to these vows and to help us celebrate our union. How have these vows panned out? I find myself questioning whether I did or did not marry for the ‘proper’ reasons. I wanted and still wish for a life partner. We both wished to have a family. Somewhere along the way though, it seems our priorities have become mis-aligned.

In the main, they are in harmony; both of us strive to create a home environment we feel happy and comfortable in. We wish for our daughter to experience all she can from life, both positive and negative. We endeavour to educate her and make her aware how fortunate she is. It is also our aim to make her understand that there needs to be a strong work ethic if she wishes to succeed. Then there is the important lesson of actions and consequences.

So many lessons for a little toddler to learn. They are important though. Whilst we may be her parents and guardians in teaching her these life values, we also need to remind ourselves of them from time to time. This may be starting to sound reminiscent of the Queen’s Christmas speech, and in some ways, I like to think of it as my own version of Her Majesty’s message to Her people. My main theme is to focus on being grateful for what you have, not lamenting that which you do not.

Perfection in imperfection

None of us are perfect, nor will we ever be. But we can always work on bettering ourselves. If not for the sake of our extended families and friends, children and significant others, then at least for the sake of ourselves. We are only here once so we need to make every day count. That means living the best life we can, and making the effort! This could be as simple as paying someone a compliment. One that is sincere and unconditional. You can tell someone how much they mean to you. It’s easy to think, “well they already know that!” That’s not to say you cannot make the effort to remind them.

Like any living being, a relationship needs nourishment and light to grow. If it is neglected and left to be overgrown with weeds, it will wither and die. Feed your relationship to keep it healthy, and hopefully you’ll live a long,  fulfilling life together. It won’t necessarily always be easy. But those things most important to us usually require effort. In return, they bring the most reward.

Sinful Sunday Week 347; Red-dy to Party!

Sunday 3rd December 2017-Prompt Week

I was Mr Bunny’s guest at his work’s Christmas Meal earlier this weekend. My decision of what to wear was based on my favourite lingerie colour scheme. Hence it was a red and black theme, and I incorporated a sexy bodystocking, crotchless knickers and corset into the outfit.

Can I take a selfie?

The next image gives more of a glimpse into the full effect of said ensemble. Perhaps it was more Moulin Rouge than ‘Black Tie’ city hotel dinner and disco, but I got my thrill from wearing what I wanted!


And for good measure, I drank red wine!

Click the lips to see who else has been sinning.

So Divine Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit

So Divine are a relatively new company. I have been approached by them several times over the past few months. In my latest encounter with them, they asked me to try out their new Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit. It sends a fuzzy glow over me to have a company approach me like this. I feel like they actually want my honest feedback. It is very rewarding to be able to share my thoughts here (positive and not-so) after a year spent trying to juggle being a working mum and getting myself known on the blogging circuit.

First Impressions

The box containing the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit is sturdy cardboard. On the front is a representative profile view of the rabbit, which is purple silicone in the main shaft and clitoral arm (not really ‘ears’ as such). The handle is white and comprises the five operating buttons. The silicone is very smooth and contains no seams, but it is quite matte so attracts lint readily.

Inside the box are a 3-pin UK adaptor with USB socket (really useful) and a magnetic USB charging cable. There is also a velour drawstring pouch in a dark blue colour. It feels like a lot of thought has gone into making the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit as close to a luxury toy as possible, and without the hefty price-tag to boot.

The features listed on the side of the box include:

  • Ultra quiet & powerful.
  • 100% waterproof.
  • 2-hour user time.
  • 3 speeds and seven pulsating passion patterns. (Nice use of alliteration here).
  • Heat function to 38° body temperature.
  • Dual motors.
  • Premium silky soft silicone.
  • Latex and Phthalate free.
Using the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit

Is this cheeky bunny quiet? I’d say that in comparison with other vibrating toys I own the Let’s Go Crazy vibrating rabbit is reasonable in the scale of noise levels. It does sound ‘buzzy’ as opposed to rumbly, which makes me wonder about its power and the sensations it will produce. More on that below.

Here’s a sample of how it sounds at mid range frequency on its first pattern setting.

So Divine Let’s Go Crazy Rabbit

The video also demonstrates just how flexible the clitoral arm is. This is a really advantageous feature since no two people with  vaginas and clitorises will be built the same. The main shaft measures about 4.5 inches in length from tip to base where the clitoral arm joins. The most bulbous part of the shaft is a similar dimension in circumference. In all, the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit is a nicely proportioned toy. It’s not too short to miss the G-spot internally, whilst the 2¾ inch long clitoral arm has the ability to massage all around the clitoris and vulva.

As for its waterproof properties I cannot really comment, as I’m not a fan of using toys in the bath/ shower. I much prefer the comfort of my bed. Charging is really easy via the magnetic USB cable. The connection seems to be reasonably firm so if you prop the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit on its side whilst charging, the cable does not seem to slip. I have encountered this issue with other toys so it’s a point to bear in mind. The charge has lasted for my testing thus far, which has included about two 15-20 minute masturbation sessions and another 20 minutes or so experimenting with the functions.

Pattterns on the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit. They do make me slightly crazy…(warning; this section contains a bit of a rant!)

Vibrations are great. What is not great is loads of different settings that do not do anything to arouse me, but simply frustrate me and leave me hanging. I do not know why companies insist on keeping them on so many of their toys. I would much rather they spend their developmental budget on making toys more user-friendly, and on quality materials that feel good. Ask a dozen of vibrator owners what annoys them most about their toy and I can be sure as anything 11 times out of 12 they will say they dislike the patterns, as they prefer continuous vibrations. The one remaining person will most probably dislike the colour of the toy. It really is not rocket science.

Now that I have my little stampy feet moment out of the way, I will try as best as I can to describe the patterns (there are 10 in my opinion):

  1. Continuous vibration in the main shaft and clitoral arm.
  2. Fast pulses (by both motors, simultaneously).
  3. 4 short pulses followed by a longer one over a 2-second cycle, repeating. This again is by both motors at the same time.
  4. Decreasing intensity wave, increasing intensity wave (both motors).
  5. A ‘strobing’ pulse. In my experience I feel like the clitoral stimulation is more intense in this pattern. I’m not sure if I’m imagining it, but for some reason I actually like this pattern!
  6. Ramping incremental pulses, before resetting back to the lowest intensity.
  7. 5 longer pulses, 5 shorter ones, then approx 15 fast pulses, all at the same intensity.
  8. Hard to describe, but I don’t like it.
  9. Similar to pattern 4.
  10. 5 slow pulses in shaft, followed by 3 slow pulses in clitoral arm.
The buttons are well placed and easy to use

To cycle through the patterns, you press and hold the central power button, so that the blue LED illuminates. Then you press the button above it to turn the motors on. Repeated pressing of this button cycles through the 10 patterns. The + and – buttons either side of the power button increase and decrease the frequency of the buzzes respectively, to make them more or less intense. From my fiddling about, I have found a range of 7 frequencies for each pattern. In all honesty, I usually just ramp up the frequency early on in my play session, as I simply find the lower end too weak.

The novelty heating function of the Let’s Go Crazy Vibrating Rabbit

This is a feature I’ve not encountered on a vibrating toy before. It seems a little bit redundant if you want my honest opinion. Warmth is inviting, but silicone really is not that cold to start with, and seeing as it conducts heat well (it’s used for baking after all!) I really do not think it’s a necessary add-on, though I appreciate where So Divine are coming from. On the flip side it is interesting to see something different in a new sex toy.

Final thoughts

The Let’s Go Crazy rabbit has given me a few things to niggle at, such as the power levels, the patterns and the somewhat redundant heating function. But in the play sessions I have used it I have been genuinely satisfied. It has delivered in giving me the blended orgasms I have come (pun intended) to enjoy. It makes me work for it a bit more than other toys. That’s not necessarily a disadvantage. I find the best feature is the flexible clitoral arm.

That clitoral arm must do yoga to be that flexible!

When I go on all fours and use the Let’s Go Crazy rabbit in a thrusting and twisting motion, I feel like I can get a good fucking from it. I think that’s a direction So Divine could move into with their toy range; thrusting vibrators. I haven’t tried any save for one. But it’s a range of toy that I’d definitely like to explore more. In terms of rating, I’d score the Let’s Go Crazy rabbit 8/10 based on it’s ease of use, value for money and orgasm capability.

 

I’d like to thank So Divine for presenting me with the opportunity to test the Let’s Go Crazy vibrating rabbit.

The toys that made the grade in 2017

I’ve tried some new and wonderful stuff this year. I’d like to share with you readers the top five highlights that have entered my toy box during 2017.

  1. Doxy; (best overall vibrator)
  2. Satisfyer Next Generation Pro 2; (my favourite clitoral stimulator)
  3. Lovehoney Desire Rabbit; (the dual stimulator that ticks all my boxes)
  4. We-vibe Tango; (most powerful bullet/small vibrator).
  5. Dominix Deluxe Wooden Dildo with leather flogger; (most versatile toy and bondage must-have).

Why have I placed these toys in this list? Simply because they all make me orgasm, and usually within a relatively quick time.

A wand with more power than Harry Potter’s

The Doxy is a powerful wand, that blows me away with its ability to induce toe-curling climaxes at a pace that outlaps Seabiscuit. It’s probably just as well, as my poor achey wrists just won’t bear long sessions anymore. (Said achiness is not from wanking I will add, but from hefting my adorable toddler around and originally sustained through expressing breast milk for her after her premature birth).

As the Doxy’s head is so broad, it really is excellent for massaging general body pains as well as achieving masturbatory relief. The controls are easy to use and I like the fact that the buttons are so large. The ramping function is also useful as a tease. The only thing I’m not so keen on with the Doxy is it’s size and weight. Should I get the chance to try Doxy’s 3, then I think I will have found my original Doxy replacement!

Get your Doxy in the UK from Lovehoney for £89.99.

Included in the ‘Save 20% when you buy two vibrators’ offer!

In the USA / Canada, Betty’s Toy Box currently have the Doxy on offer for $109.99. To get yours in purple, click here!

If you don’t fancy purple, there’s black, pink or white!

Betty's Toy Box

Even Pro 2s can be improved

Satisfyer’s Pro 2 was pretty good, when I bought and reviewed it back in February. I was new to clitoral suction toys. I cannot justify regularly spending in excess of £60+ on a single toy. However, I was taken in by Satisfyer’s value in comparison to the expense of Womanizer’s range of toys.

Though the original Satisfyer Pro 2 did have its flaws, the Next Generation Pro 2 gave an already decent toy an amazing overhaul. The main improvements are the noise levels being reduced to about a tenth of the original volume, and the suction aperture being wider. Not only that but the intensity ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons mean you can actually edge play if you want to, rather than having the frustration of reaching climax too soon, before you really wish to. If you only try one clitoral suction toy, it may as well be the Next Generation Pro 2 from Satisfyer!

 

A rabbit named Desire

Lovehoney launched their Desire range in November 2015, with six luxury silicone rechargeable toys, each with it’s own storage case. I took the plunge earlier this year back in March and purchased the Desire Rabbit.

Many vibrator users complain that rabbits can be rather hit or miss. I’ve certainly found this to be true with some of the rabbits I’ve tried that either just feel too short in the shaft, or the ears are uncomfortable. Patterns can also be infuriating! With the Desire Rabbit, I feel like I’ve found the best compromise I’ve encountered so far in terms of the feel of the smooth silicone ears and the length of the shaft. The fact that it comes with its own storage case means it really does represent much better value than many of its rivals.

 

Current offer when you buy any two Desire luxury toys is the Fifty Shades Darker Couples kit worth £39.99!

 

 

Dances to it’s own tune

We-vibe’s Tango is the first rechargeable bullet I’ve had the joy of owning, and it is so much better than all the battery-powered bullets I’ve tried. The design of it’s flattened tip (like a lipstick) means that there is more direct contact with your vulva, which in my opinion can only be a good thing. The vibrations of the Tango are far more deep and rumbly than the shallow buzzier counterparts.

If you know you need clitoral stimulation to orgasm (which let’s face it, most people with a clitoris will say that climax via clitoral stimulation is the best way for them to cum) why bother wasting money on several cheaper bullets when you can just go straight for the best one?! If you’re not keen on patterns, then this bullet will suit you, as it has three continuous vibration settings in increasing speeds.

 

Twice the fun with one toy!

My final choice for the top five toys of this year is the stunning and dual functioning Dominix Deluxe Wooden Dildo with leather flogger. It’s so lightweight, and the dildo is satisfyingly girthy.

As a bondage toy, it really does hold its own, as you can deliver some sweet stings to your partner before giving them even more pleasure from the bulbed smooth wooden dildo. It’s a great value option as it is only £24.99 from Lovehoney, which is hard to beat (pun intended)!

 

So there you have my top five toys for the year. I hope 2018 brings as much fun and pleasure as this year has done!

Fifty Shades Freed® Its Divine Beaded Glass Wand

As a collector of other Fifty Shades toys, I was interested to try one of the latest offerings from the E. L. James approved pleasure collection. I have previously reviewed the Drive Me Crazy glass wand from the original series of toys. It seems appropriate to test another glass toy and compare the two. Lovehoney kindly sent me the Fifty Shades Freed® It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand, in exchange for this review.

I eagerly opened the box to find not just one It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand, but two! The timing couldn’t have been better really, as the blog is shortly due to celebrate it’s first anniversary. What better than to host a giveaway to mark the occasion?! Christina at Lovehoney supports this idea, so the giveaway launched a week ago. If you’ve yet to see it, you can either find it here, or on my Twitter timeline (under my Pinned Tweet).

That’s enough preamble; onto the review! The packaging for the Fifty Shades Freed® range is as attractive as it has been for the previous collections. Each collection has it’s own colour-coordinated theming, and Freed is no different. The outer box is a dark purple evoking passion and embossed with rose gold typography. The inner box is a more robust affair, and is plain black with Fifty Shades Freed® embossing (once again) in rose gold. Lift the lid and inside the It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand sits in a plastic tray.  Under the tray are the obligatory satin storage pouch, in a deep plum along with instruction leaflet.

It’s Divine-ly sculpted

The Fifty Shades Freed® It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand is a classy looking dildo. When I look at it, the Sam Sparro song Black and Gold comes into my mind. The curved wand has five beaded ‘bulbs’ along its length. A sixth bulb functions as the handle. On the front of this, the logo is visible in gold. Notice the theme here?

Now, the more eagle-eyed among you have probably spotted that Lovehoney sell their own version of this wand. It’s slightly cheaper, so if you’re keen on a glass beaded dildo, then Lovehoney’s own is less expensive (*subject to promotional offers). The two dildos primarily differ in their circumference and length:

Lovehoney Beaded Sensual Glass Dildo: 

  • Circumference: 5.5 inches.
  • Insertable Length: 8 inches.
  • Length: 9 inches.

Fifty Shades Freed® It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand:

  • Circumference: 4.5 inches.
  • Insertable Length: 7 inches.
  • Length: 8 inches.

Personally I’m happy with slightly less girth, as it means I do not necessarily need to be fully ‘warmed up’ to accept the bulbs. The beauty of glass is that it glides so well on its own. If you produce enough of your own natural lubricant, then you won’t need to apply any. I am more than happy to use lubricant, and glass toys lend themselves to either water-based or silicone-based lubricants.

 

Verre is versatile

I like to use glass at its ambient temperature or slightly warm. The bulbs of the Fifty Shades Freed® Its Divine Beaded Glass Wand feel sublime when caressed over my labia and vulva. It’s a pleasure to relax into the moment as  the glass strokes my skin and  warms to my core temperature. As the beads enter my vagina, it reminds me why I like glass so much. The bulbous texture is so much more arousing than a uniformly phallic dildo. With the curve, the tapered tip hits my inner front wall, and I can thrust or rock to my content.

Not only is this dildo great for vaginal stimulation, but I imagine it would be pretty awesome for anal use too. I’ve just not had the time to test this myself, but seeing as the shaft is curved I do not see why anal use be procluded.

At the start of this review I mentioned that I’d compare the It’s Divine Wand to the Drive Me Crazy wand. I actually prefer the beads of the It’s Divine to the little nubs of the Drive Me Crazy. The reason why is that they are more filling and I like the gentle stretching sensation that each bulb provides. Moreover, I feel that the curve in the shaft and the tapering of the tip on the It’s Divine Wand are better for G-spot stimulation. Hence if you are new to the Fifty Shades collection and are looking to try glass, I’d say choose the It’s Divine over the Drive Me Crazy.

It’s Divine has a more tapered end making it better suited for G-spot play.

For those that want slightly more girth at a cheaper price you may be better off selecting the Lovehoney own brand dildo, but that’s a decision that lies with yourself. Cleaning the wand is really easy; simply use an antibacterial wipe or soap and water. Leave to dry or wipe dry with a lint-free cloth.

Where to buy

The Fifty Shades Freed It’s Divine Beaded Glass Wand is available from Lovehoney for £34.99.

#SoSS Share our Shit Saturday; Luv Bunny’s Room 101

Share our Shit Saturday, 18 November 2017

I’ve titled this post my ‘Room 101,’ because a couple of the posts I’m going to talk about in this week’s #SoSS round-up relate to  things I’d happily banish to the BBC comedy show ‘bin.’

Firstly, Seasonal Affective disorder and depression. Miss Jezebella expresses how draining this time of year can be for her personally. I identify with her feelings. A lot of people who read her post will probably also recognise the tell-tale symptoms. I see the apathy she talks about in my colleagues. The yawns from fed up and tired preschool workers. My own trudging about town on errands etc. I’d happily hibernate from now until March. Except I cannot do this. None of us can. So I’m trying to take pleasure in the simplest of things everyday. That’s all any of us can do whilst there is so much bleakness around. I know winter won’t last forever, so I will just sigh and say come March, it will be consigned to Room 101 again!

Secondly, as we approach Christmas, we’ll be writing our Christmas card lists and buying gifts for those we care about and whom return the sentiments. As Candysnatch discusses in her post Detoxing your Friend Circle, I think this time of year actually does us a favour. If we find ourselves questioning ‘should I write a card for this person?’ then perhaps the reason for that is because said friend has become more of a ‘frenemy’ than a true friend.

Bridget Jones referred to some of these people as jellyfishes. They simply cannot seem to deliver a compliment without making some kind of ‘stinging’ remark. As I’ve gone along in my life, I’ve been quite selective with those I befriend. I’d rather have a few good friends, than dozens of acquaintances. I do not sugar-coat stuff. I call people up on their shit. But at least my friends know where they stand with me. So again, if you’re pondering on whether someone is really your friend, think about how they make you feel. If you feel drained after spending time with them, perhaps they aren’t really your friend after all. And you can do yourself the favour of cutting them loose and sending them to Room 101!

The final thing I will send to Room 101 this week is realistic dildos that aren’t actually that realistic. I’d much rather try a dildo that I find different and interesting. One such dildo is a part human/ part robot silicone cyborg cock, complete with a plated and riveted design. The textures look pretty awesome, and it would sure make for some interesting Terminator-esque role play. ‘I’ll be back’ will definitely be a metaphorical catchphrase that springs to mind!

 

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to Share Our Shit next Saturday xx

Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator

Turning over a new Leaf, the Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator adds on extra functions

I never owned the original Leaf Vitality, but I like the appearance of it. A green dual-pronged silicone toy, reminiscent of a seedling. Offering lots of potential ways to enjoy the two soft smooth leaf-like arms for either solo play or with a partner (see below). Did I mention the two leafy bits have separate motors? From what I’ve read about the original Leaf Vitality, these two appendages have three speed settings.

The Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator adds on two extra pattern functions, and the colour of the toy is…purple. I bet you weren’t expecting that! Packaging is a cleverly designed brown carton with magnetic clasp. Inside is a dark brown card wallet containing the instruction manual, a canvas drawstring tote bag, USB charging cable and the Vitality+ toy.

Leaf Vitality+

A quirky Eco-friendly vibrator

Before I could use my new Leaf Vitality+ it required a charge. The jack of the USB cable inserts into a hole on the rear of the toy. Charging takes about 3 hours, and a useful red LED illuminates whilst the toy is being powered up. Another feature is that the cable has a Leaf label on it, so making it easier to locate the cable should it be stored with other USB leads. Probably not an issue for most users, who may keep their cables separate but I like details such as this.

Leaf Vitality+

Once charged, the toy has about an hour’s play time on the highest speed setting or an hour and a half on the lowest speed. The power is pretty impressive for such a dainty looking toy. I can hold it in my hand but on full power it will jump about on my palm. Of course it didn’t stay on my hand for long. I needed to try those bud-like tips on more sensitive areas!

 

Versatility from the Vitality+

What can this toy do? Those arms are super bendy, so the possibilities include:

  • Clitoral stimulation from the thinner arm combined with vaginal penetration with the thicker arm.
  • Vaginal penetration (thicker arm) combined with perineal stimulation (thinner arm).
  • Nipple stimulation if the two arms are splayed apart.
  • Testicular stimulation during solo play or during sex with a partner.
  • Clitoral stimulation during sex with a partner (it could be used for double penetration too).

Other features that the Vitality+ boasts include a travel lock and a memory of your previously used setting. To activate the travel lock simply press and hold the two buttons, until the LED flashes (about 5 seconds). The Vitality+ remembers your previous setting if you press and hold the button corresponding to the leaf arm you want to store in the memory for 1 second at the intensity you desire it to be set to.

Thoughts on the Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator
  • As a clitoral vibrator, the Leaf Vitality+ is pretty good either for solo play or during sex with a partner.
  • Vaginally, the thicker of the two arms is the better of the two, but it is still a bit small and too flexible to offer much targeted stimulation.
  • The perineal sensation is on the tickly side but not unpleasant.
  • It is also fun to use for nipple play, giving evidence of arousal within minutes.

Battery life seems reasonable, and I managed 3-4 play sessions before I needed to ‘juice it up’ again. I like the storage bag, as it’s sturdy but also attractively simple. It is more ‘breathable’ than the satin pouches usually supplied with toys, so I feel it’ll be more hygienic. The main issue for me are the vibrations being slightly on the more ‘buzzy’ side. Sometimes I can climax from this toy, and other times I just cannot. Orgasm is not necessarily the ‘be all and end all’ of play time, so I am happy enough to keep the Vitality+ in my bedside drawer, as it’s such a versatile toy.

Overall I’d rate the Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator 7.5/10.

We-Vibe Tango

Normally it takes two

The We-Vibe Tango is my first toy from the manufacturer. I must admit, I have been scared off the ‘app’-associated partner toys sold by the company in light of the news that personal data had been hacked. The Tango, however, has no need for an app. It’s a simple bullet in the timeless ‘lipstick’ design. Discreet enough for a handbag, but powerful with it. A rumblier version of those cheaper battery operated bullets (BoBs, I shall call them).

I purchased my Tango from 4Playsure. They had a ‘hump’ week offer at the start of June, and I was tempted to join my fellow peers who had been Tango’ed! I opted for the bright blue colour, as it is less ‘girlie’ than the shocking pink version. Blue is a colour that is starting to become more popular in sex toy circles, and I am glad, as I love the colour. My Tango came packaged in a simple understated white / blue cardboard box. Within the box are the Tango (nestled in a foam insert), charging dock and USB cable, instruction booklet, warranty card and white satin pouch.

A dance with my new Tango awaits!

The information on the back of the box states that it is:

  • 100% waterproof
  • whisper quiet
  • body safe

Furthermore, the Tango has 8 modes, 4 of which are continuous vibrations (the remaining 4 being patterns). It also has a low-power alert. Useful, so you don’t get too carried away, only to wind up frustrated. The Tango by We-Vibe has a flattened surface at the tip, for broader stimulation on erogenous zones, whilst the tapered tip and edges can provide more pinpoint vibrations.

Charging the Tango

This part of using my Tango is my least favourite…Sadly, I seem to encounter the issue of the magnetic connection slipping. Luckily, there is an orange light to let you know the toy is charging. Periodically, during charging, the toy will move ever so slightly off the base, making the light go out. Frustrating when you go to switch the Tango on, only to find it has a dozy ‘wasp’ buzz, rather than a killer bee ‘rumble!’ Normal charging takes about 90 minutes.

That orange light is so useful!

When the battery is low, a light will flash alerting you that recharging is necessary. If using your laptop / computer to charge, it is important to note that charging will not take place if the computer has gone into hibernation mode. Once fully charged, the Tango will vibrate for 2 hours of play time. Not that you’ll need 2 hours to climax with this powerful bullet!

Using the We-Vibe Tango

The Tango is made of ABS thermoplastic. Apart from the We-vibe and Tango logos moulded around its base, it is completely smooth on the surface. This means you do not need too much (if any) lubricant. The control button is a small raised bump on the Tango’s base, located between the two magnetic charging pins. To switch on, simply press and hold the button for two seconds. The Tango has a memory function, so on switching on, it will go to the last setting it was using.

There are 8 modes, as mentioned previously, depicted in the lealet by little wave charts. The four continuous vibration settings are first; low, medium, high and ultra-high. These are proceeded by the pattern settings; wave, pulse, tease and cha-cha. Just switching on the blue bullet, I can tell from the fuzzy reverberations going off in my hand, that it promises great sensations. As for whisper quiet…I’ve yet to find a toy that is truly ‘whisper quiet,’ but then a whisper can sometimes be quite loud! I find the noise from the Tango to be acceptable. But I’m not in an exceptionally busy household.

I may own my new Tango…but will it own my orgasms?

Strictly Cum Dancing

Parting my sensitive labia and applying the tip of the Tango to my clitoris tells me that I won’t be the one controlling my climactic release. Just like the partnered dance, the Tango builds up its intensity, and pulls me along the tumultuous tide of lust. I am thrown over the edge of my orgasmic precipice and shatter into the blissful rapture of release. Just like the female is ceremoniously dragged along to her fate in the syncopated steps eseof the dance.

Yes, I have milked the metaphor as much as I can, but I really do feel the Tango deserves the merit I offer it. It is my favourite bullet / mini vibe. I will forgive it the problematic charging, for its orgasmic capability. If you are looking to purchase a bullet, splash the cash and get something that will deliver. The Tango certainly does!
