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!

Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator

This little bunny desired a new Rabbit

The Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit vibrator appealed to me for several reasons. It seems a superior version of a sex toy staple that I already enjoy. It is rechargeable, so it will save a fortune in batteries. It also comes  with it’s own storage case!

The sleek outer cardboard box gives the promise of something more luxurious than other rabbits I’ve tried. The black storage case safely stows an instruction manual and USB charging cable, in the left-hand mesh compartment. The Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable rabbit is secured in the right-hand side pocket. It is sealed in a clear plastic case (for packaging purposes only).

I followed the 2-hour charging procedure, before excitedly letting my new ‘pet’ enter my ‘bunny hole.’ Charging the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit vibrator is really easy. The jack can be put through a hole on the storage case, so that the vibrator can be charged discreetly. This is a unique feature that I’ve only encountered since owning the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator.

There’s a hole in my case, (don’t ask for Delilah!)                                        Jesting aside, it’s a brilliant feature that makes this case and the rabbit superior to all my others thus far.
Silky silicone

The silicone is wonderfully smooth, and the buttons are very intuitive and user-friendly. There are three buttons; the (+) to increase the intensity, the (o) to change between modes and (-) to decrease intensity. Speaking of modes and intensities, the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit vibrator has 8 modes and 12 intensities. The modes are listed in the manual as follows:

Not so descriptive graphs. Being a science geek in a former life, I’d at least like some labels on the axes!

Make of that what you will, its not the most descriptive page in the manual. I would describe them as follows:

  • Pattern 1 = Constant vibration in ears and shaft.
  • Pattern 2 = Constant vibration in shaft. No vibration in ears.
  • Pattern 3 = Constant vibration in ears. No vibration in shaft.
  • Pattern 4 = Slow wave pulse in the ears, continuous vibration in shaft.
  • Pattern 5 = Fast wave pulse in ears, continuous vibration in shaft.
  • Pattern 6 = Intermittent pulses in shaft with steady back and forth of the ears.
  • Pattern 7 = Faster pulses in shaft, with two pulses in ears followed by a longer vibration.
  • Pattern 8 =Fast pulses in shaft with a heartbeat ‘lub-dub’ style pattern in the ears.
It’s all in the ears

Being a lady that needs clitoral stimulation to climax, my favourite patterns are 1 and 3. If the ears aren’t going, I won’t be coming, it’s that simple, so Pattern 2 does not a lot for me. With Patterns 4 through 8, some are better than others, but it really is about the ear action for me. Hence continuous vibrations in those work best. What else can I say about the ears? I really like the ears on the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit vibrator, as they seem to stroke all around my clitoris and my inner labia, like two smooth fingers giving a very pleasurable massage.

Come ‘ear my lovely!

Last but not least, there is a travel lock feature that means the Desire rabbit won’t suddenly spring to life when in transit or stowed away. Simply press and hold both the (+) and (-) buttons for 5 seconds to lock or unlock. The lock also deactivates when you plug the rabbit into a USB port.

Does the Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator fulfill Bunny’s desires?

My final thoughts on the Desire Luxury Rabbit, are why didn’t I get it sooner? I rate it 9.5/10 basing my score on its orgasm capability, its ease of use and the level of detail / thought that has gone into creating it. The only reason I’m not giving it 10/10 is because I don’t like some of the patterns. Otherwise it’s my ideal rabbit!

Buy yours at Lovehoney, for £64.99.

Adrien Lastic Smart Dream Vibrating Egg with clitoral stimulator

The Adrien Lastic Smart Dream Vibrating egg had been on my Lovehoney wish-list for some time. I’d been debating whether to buy or not, since it is a slightly more expensive toy in the mid-range of pricing, at £74.99. I’d only tried one egg previously (the Annabelle Knight Yes! Powerful Vibrating Love Egg), which is battery-operated. I was thus looking to go for something rechargeable. The Adrien Lastic Smart Dream vibrating egg fit the bill for this purpose. Moreover, it has a clitoral arm, 10 vibration modes, 2 powerful motors, a remote control and is ‘whisper quiet.’

Egg box of delight!
What’s In the Egg box?

The packaging is a white cardboard flip-lid box. It is encased by a white card sleeve displaying a glossy image of the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream vibrating egg. The branding / product description is embossed in silver. In the box, the Smart Dream egg (a bright and fun fuchsia pink, with black rings around the centre), sits nestled in a foam insert. Remove this, and under a card flap sits the remote control unit, USB charging cable, white satin pouch, Lithium 3V CR2032 battery and product literature. A 2-year warranty comes in the box too.

First things first, I read the instructions on charging and operating the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream Vibrating egg. Seems fairly simple, as I will describe below. I attempt to open the battery cover on the Remote Control Unit, and damn and blast, it is sealed really tight! Not to mention, the remote is a bit flimsy-looking so I am terrified I am going to break it (or wrench my thumb nail off trying to open the compartment!) Luckily Mr Bunny was able to open the compartment and save the day using one of his little tools. With battery inserted, the remote would operate, but the egg needed a good charging.

There is a little indent in the silicone on the back of the egg, to insert the USB jack. The jack end is slightly angled to fit against the curve of the egg. It needs pushing in really firmly so that the red LED indicator on the egg illuminates.

 

Fizzers are a necessary re-fuel after toy testing!
Works like a Dream

The Adrien Lastic Smart Dream Vibrating egg takes about 2-hours to fully charge. It will turn itself off once fully charged. The red LED light will go out too. When turning on the egg, simply press the power button on the front of the egg (under the black band) for 3 seconds. A single vibration indicates it will respond to the remote control, whilst 2 vibrations mean it is not receptive to the remote. The remote itself is very simple and has two buttons; a power button to switch the egg on and off, and a function button (with the Adrien Lastic logo) to cycle through the 10 vibration modes. I will attempt to describe the 10 modes as best as I can:

  1. Low frequency continuous vibrations.
  2. Continuous vibrations (medium frequency).
  3. Continuous vibrations (high frequency).
  4. Fast pulsing.
  5. Six fast pulses followed by a longer pulse, repeated.
  6. Ascending / descending wave.
  7. Ascending pulses, repeated.
  8. Seventeen higher frequency slow pulses, followed by fast pulsing.
  9. Eleven fast pulses, followed by low frequency continuous vibrations (5 seconds).
  10. Approx. twenty-five fast pulses, followed by higher frequency continuous vibrations (5 seconds).
Using the Smart Dream Vibrating Egg

In use, I find the egg to consist of a lovely soft silicone with barely any drag. It inserts easily with a dollop of some water-based lubricant. The clitoral arm nestles neatly against my clitoris. I can walk around, sit, and bend down all with relative ease and no discomfort. I could hear the vibrations as a slight hum when I was in a silent room. I’m sure if surrounded by enough background noise it will be indiscernible.

As for the strength of the vibrations, they are certainly stimulating and help create arousal. But even with the stronger vibrations I could wear the egg for the entire duration that it remained charged (a couple of hours) and I did not orgasm. I see it as more a teaser, to help create some fun foreplay between a couple on a romantic evening, or even on a date night, to follow up with some more ‘interactive’ play later on.

The images show how Smart Dream can be worn for solo play or for intercourse. And if in doubt, that sticker reminds you, this egg is body safe!
More than one way to use the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream vibrating egg

We tried wearing the Smart Dream during intercourse. Simply insert the clitoral arm into the vagina under your partner’s penis, and rest the egg part on your clitoris.  I did not find the vibrations quite strong enough to bring me to orgasm, but my other half enjoyed the vibrations. I think it’ll be a good toy for couples who want to share a toy for creating anticipation. Those who want to try a couple’s vibrator but don’t want to spend £160 for a We-Vibe Sync may find the Smart Dream a good option. On the other hand, the We-Vibe Unite may be a good competitor to the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream. The Unite gets an average of 4/5 stars, based on over 10 reviews.

Cleaning of the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream Vibrating Egg is fairly simple; just use some toy cleaner or soap with warm water and leave to air dry. The egg is splash proof so don’t immerse. Hence it won’t be suitable for use in a bath. To summarise, this egg gives a bit of buzz to help set the mood for some couples fun.  Alternatively, use it solo to add some excitement whilst going about your day!
