Tango by We-Vibe

Normally it takes two

The Tango by We-Vibe 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 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!

Ann Summers Addiction Wet-Look Zip dress, Red

Fuelling my lingerie Addiction…

The Ann Summers Addiction Wet-Look dress was on offer at Ann Summers a month or so ago. I’d been keeping an eye on it for a week or so. When I saw it offered for £24 I knew I had to get it! I love red lingerie (black too; this dress is also available in the noir staple). It was the red I chose, as it looked so seductively hot on the model.

Luckily for me, I got the sizing correct first time (I’d ordered the medium, as I am 12-14). Currently I’m closer to the 12 than the 14, which is great. So long as I do not overindulge in the Ben & Jerry’s or barbecues (my summer body nemeses)! First comment to make about the Ann Summers Addiction dress in red, is that the colour is somewhat brighter than the tone shown on the web site. The image there makes is appear more deep cherry red, whereas in the flesh it is more bright red, like a ‘salsa’ red. Whilst this did not bother me, I feel it’s important to make potential purchasers aware.

Front of the packaging

Packaging for the Ann Summers Addiction dress, is a cardboard sleeve box, with plastic wrapper containing the dress. The dress is folded around a cardboard insert to help it retain shape inside the box. The packaging gives some instructions for hand-washing the dress, and keeping it away from fire. Both common-sense I would have thought!

Rear of the packaging; mostly common sense information

Out of the box, I unwrapped the dress, and gave it a thorough look. It appears well-constructed and the seams are all neatly finished as you’d expect of a well-known brand as Ann Summers. My only nit-pick is that the ends of the drawstring cords on the lace-up panelling details could be finished off more attractively. They look like they are simply heat-finished to seal off the ends. They could have been fitted with metal togs to complement the eyelets.

Zipping it up

In any case, I was eager to try the dress, and I excitedly unzipped it, before slipping my arms through the straps and fastening up the shiny zip. All was nice and smooth with the running of the zip. That’s an important feature, as aesthetically it looks cool, but it also needs to be fully functional too. A zip that sticks or unzips apart is not going to score highly, on the sexiness scale!

The fit of the dress is like a glove; it hugs your curves, and displays cleavage beautifully. The hem just sat over my derriere, leaving enough to the imagination to add to the seductive quality of the outfit.

Teamed with red laced-top fishnet thigh-high stockings, the effect is especially sultry. Your partner will be ‘Addicted’ to you in this dress. Fact. It’s not my first wet-look outfit, but I prefer it to the other one I have (a sexy cop dress), as it has more flattering styling and enhances your sexy features. The only item I need to complete the look is some red leather heels!

Teams well with lace-topped fishnet thigh-highs

As per the instructions, I hand-washed the dress in cold water with a non-biological detergent suitable for delicate items. There was a lot of loose dye released during the washing, so take care to only wash with similar colour items! I did not wring the dress, and tried to gently squeeze the excess water from it, so as not to create creases in the Polyester/Elastane material. I left it to dry, hanging over my bath. The recent heat meant it dried within 24 hours.

A must-have for those that love racy lingerie

My final thoughts on the Addiction dress by Ann Summers, is that it will be a boudoir piece de resistance for fuelling passionate times with your partner/s. Guys will love it for the wow factor it evokes. Gals will love feeling like a saucy temptress, whilst wearing it.

Cleavage enhancing, and allows sneaky glimpses of thighs and waist.

I’d rate it 8.5 / 10 (marks deducted for the packaging making it appear a deeper red than it is, and the lace-up cord endings).

Buy yours in Black or Red, sizes S (8-10), M (12-14), L (16-18) from Ann Summers for a sizzling £28.00! Currently in the buy one, get one half-price in Erotic Wear.

Rabbits

***Update 17th May 2017 – New pictures will be added as soon as I am able to get decent images. Please check again in the following weeks.
Tracey Cox Supersex USB Rechargeable Rabbit

This sleek black silicone rabbit was procured in a 3 for £75 deal. It’s my third rabbit. My other two are far more girly looking. One is the Lovehoney Dream Silicone G-spot Rabbit (see below) in purple. The other is the Ann Summers Rampant Rabbit in neon pink (also below). Both of those are battery powered, whereas the Tracey Cox rabbit is USB rechargeable.

The Tracey Cox rabbit looks very stylish, and the contouring of the shaft and ears make it look like it should hit all of my sweet spots. The ears are gentle on the clitoris and flutter to stimulate that nerve-laden nub very well. However, the shaft is a little short for my liking and so does not reach my G-spot effectively. Placement of the buttons frustrates me. I often accidentally switch the rabbit off mid-use, usually when things are getting more interesting, and for obvious reasons this is off-putting.

The vibration patterns do not work for me. I need continuous vibrations from both shaft and the ears, so only the first two settings give me that. I like that the rabbit is USB rechargeable, and it is easily plugged in to my laptop and ‘juiced up.’

This is perhaps my favourite rabbit in terms of appearance, and it’s taken a while for me to appreciate its orgasmic capability. It does take me a bit longer to climax with the Tracey Cox, but the wait is usually worth it. Get yours from Lovehoney for £49.99!

 

Lovehoney Dream Silicone G-Spot Rabbit

Lovehoney’s Dream Silicone rabbit is a very good contender for my other battery-powered rabbit (see below). Not necessarily better, but different. I like the colour and seeing the beads through the shaft. It’s nice that it can rotate in both directions. The ears have a good range of pulsing sensations, though most frequently I resort to the continuous pulse on a lower setting, as my clitoris can get too sensitive.

I enjoyed riding this rabbit, and feeling when it hit my G-spot. It bought me to orgasm pretty swiftly.

Available from Lovehoney for £34.99.

 

 Ann Summers Rampant Rabbit (the Neon one)

This was my first rabbit, and I still have a special place in my bunny heart for it. It takes 3 AA batteries, which are easy to insert. The settings are varied, going from continuous vibrations to patterns. The shaft and ears are controlled by separate buttons, which is a handy feature. This rabbit is bright and packs some power despite being battery-operated. I enjoy using this rabbit, though the silicone is not as soft and flexible as either the Tracey Cox rabbit (above) or the Lovehoney Desire Luxury USB rechargeable rabbit. Buy your Neon Rampant Rabbit from Ann Summers for £42.

Fun Factory Amorino USB Rechargeable Rabbit 

The Fun Factory Amorino Rabbit is certainly funky in its appearance! It came in the sleek gold Fun Factory box, with outer sleeve showing the rabbit in all its Technicolor splendour. The charging is unique, in that it has magnetic contacts. It plugs into the USB port of a laptop.

The vibrator is quiet enough when on, even at the higher settings, and there is a key lock system to prevent it being accidentally switched on in transit. In use though, it just didn’t quiet reach the spots I needed it to. The shaft is a bit too short, and the clitoral stimulator also a bit short and stubby. I didn’t really feel that the band gave any benefit either. It seemed a bit gimmicky to me.

In essence it’s a very striking looking toy, but I think it’s been over-engineered and has lost the key design features it needs; a long enough shaft and ears. Considering the price, there is no storage pouch either. The toy is easy to clean; the band slips off easily, the silicone is nice and smooth, and doesn’t harbour any unpleasant smells.

Although the Amorino didn’t deliver me the thrills it promised, it would be suitable for those who like different pattern settings and are looking for a shorter rabbit- after all we are all built differently.

The Amorino is currently available from Orgasmic for only £35.00, and is available in Petrol Blue or Pink.

Betty’s Toy Box sell the Amorino for $99.99 in either blue or pink.
