Jopen Key Comet Wand

Glass-icone fusion from Jopen

A glass wand dipped in silicone sounded like a great idea for a lover of both these versatile sex toy materials. When the lovely Jay at 4Playsure.co.uk offered an opportunity to test the Jopen Key Comet wand, I said youbetcha! I thanked the celestial sex toy Gods and eagerly awaited its delivery.

The wand arrived swiftly, in discreet plain packaging. Jopen’s box of delights consists of a black and turquoise flip-top opening cardboard case, within a coordinating sleeve. Inside are the wand surrounded in a foam insert, instruction leaflet and satin drawstring pouch. The less said about the pouch the better- it’s synthetic fibres make my lips purse in a disapproving way. Surely a toy as elegant as the Jopen Key Comet wand deserves a more silky robe?!

Lifting the lid to see if I’ve found the Key to my pleasure

Luckily, I’m not reviewing the packaging. It’s all about the wand…Eyeing it up in the box, I could see its gorgeous curved lines and hook-like bulbous end. The metallic Key motif adds a bit of bling, but essentially I do not see the point to it. It’s only purpose seems to be to state that the toy is of a superior quality. I think the wand can say that all by itself. Lifting the Jopen Key Comet out of the box, is like taking a precision instrument out of its case. The weighty feel of the glass body tells you it means business. All 263g of it! The silicone feels smooth, but with enough resistance to grab at your inner pleasure spot.

Gee whizz! That’s big! All the better for targeting the big G!

At the bulbous end, the circumference measures 5 inches; now if that is not enough girth to grab at the Graftenburg, then I don’t know what will! Due to the firmness and head-size of the Jopen Key Comet, it takes a bit of ‘warming up’ and copious water-based lubricant to set it on its path as a trailblazer.

Boasting 5 inches of girth

I give it this term because although glass sex toys targeting the G spot are not a new concept, silicone-coated glass is. At least to me.

Getting the angle of entry was a bit tricky to begin with, and this is where the pre-warm up is important; the curve in the shaft really does make the Comet feel like a bit of a sledgehammer, if it is wielded awkwardly. It needs to be coaxed into position, and rather than thrusting, a more subtle rocking action is required.

Admittedly, I do find G spot orgasms kind of bewildering; I like the build up of pressure but at the same time I dislike the ‘oh my gosh I’m going to pee!’ sensation. In this way they have the Marmite effect with me. I simultaneously love it, and loathe it! The best way to proceed, I find is to either use a silicone vibrator or my Satisfyer Pro 2 on my clitoris at the same time. That way I get over the dreaded fear of wetting myself as I’m distracted by my clitoral climax, whilst having the weight of the Jopen Key Comet pulsing on my inner front wall. The friction from the silicone works a treat here, as glass on its own can become too slippery.

Key-notes

As a word of warning, the handle of the Comet can become awkward to handle if too much lubricant covers it, so have some tissues handy to wipe away any excess. Removing the wand takes care too, as if done too quickly it can get caught behind the pubic bone. That kind of action can take the glow away from a girl’s afterglow quicker than a comet shoots across the night sky.

Treated with respect, the Jopen Key Comet can give a lot of pleasure with not a great deal of effort. Ideal for lazy summer evenings. Just mind the margaritas and there’ll be no pubic bashing. I’d rate the Jopen Key Comet 8.5/10 based on its aesthetic appearance, G-spot targeting ability and ease of use. It is available in blue from 4Playsure.co.uk, for £103.99.

Fun Factory Stronic Drei

I’ve tried and tested a couple of Fun Factory toys; (please see my posts on the Fun Factory Jiggle Bouncer and the Amorino Rabbit, if you are interested in other toys by the company). As the Stronic Drei is an expensive toy I had not felt compelled to purchase it until I recently came across  Orgasmic’s Fun Factory sale. I knew it was a ‘pulsator’ rather than ‘just a vibrator’ so it seemed to offer something different from my usual toys. Additionally, the textured grooves and curved tip appealed to me as I enjoy some G-spot stimulation along with an internal massage. I had seen favourable reviews for it on other retailer’s websites, as well as on Orgasmic’s site. I figured I’d jump at the chance to own the Drei for a snip of its usual selling price.

Firstly, the Drei arrived in a discreet plain box from Orgasmic. Thumbs up. The Fun Factory packaging consists of a black outer sleeve showing the Drei in all its bold colourful glory on one side. The other side features a couple embracing with the female of the couple scratching her male lover’s back, ouch! I find the outer sleeve a bit too ‘in-your-face’ for my personal taste. The golden slim-line box that houses the Drei and its magnetic charger, plus instruction leaflets is much more tasteful. It simply has the Fun Factory logo on it.

IMG_1222

Click ‘n charge

As for getting the Drei ready to use, charging is simple via the magnetic USB ‘click ‘n charge’ cable. You just have to wait 16 hours…oh. Whilst waiting for it to charge I looked at the Drei, giving it my scrutiny. It is a hefty toy! Perhaps best to make sure you don’t try using it if you feel overly tired or have aching arms. It will only compound these issues. The silicone has a lot of drag. I mean a lot, so considering its girth, it will need considerable lubricant (not silicone-based).

In terms of functions, there are three buttons on the handle; the red FUN button that gets the toy started, the plus button (+) and minus button (-) which cycle through the programs. The buttons also operate a key lock system, so you can be assured your Drei won’t pulse to life during transit and waste that long-awaited charge. To lock the keys press and hold the FUN and (-) buttons for half a second. To unlock, press and hold the FUN and (+) buttons for half a second.

About the pulsation modes

The Drei can be used vaginally or anally, as it has a flared based. I’m only intending to use it vaginally though. For the purpose of this review it will only be tested in this way. It should NOT be used whilst it is connected to the magnetic charger (duh!), and it can be harmful to pacemaker wearers. In terms of its functions, it certainly puts some fun into the word function. There are 10 modes; 3 of which are ‘algorithmic’, 4 are ‘constant’ and the remaining 3 are ‘dynamic’. To switch on, press the FUN button to get the ‘Perfect Start’ constant setting. From here, you can press the (-) button once, twice or three times to cycle through the algorithmic modes; ‘Rattle’, ‘Gallop’ and ‘Dirty Dancing.’

Pressing the (+) button three times takes you back to the ‘Perfect Start.’ Alternatively, just press FUN to switch off, then switch it back on again. To cycle through the ‘constant’ modes (which increase in intensity) simply press the (+) button once to get to ‘Samba’, twice to get to ‘Rumble’ or three times to get to ‘Quicky.’ Continuing to press the (+) button another three sequential times will take you through the ‘dynamic’ modes; ‘Roller Ball,’ ‘Vienna Waltz’ and ‘Rumba.’ This probably sounds a lot more complicated than it is…cue picture!

Does the Stronic Drei get me wet?

Now its time to actually review this toy! On pressing the FUN button it actually makes my arm shake, and it does need plenty of lube to insert it, otherwise the silicone drags too much and it feels uncomfortable. Going through the patterns was fun for the novelty factor, but I can honestly say in nearly 20 minutes of play time with the Drei, they did not really feel ‘effective’ in getting me aroused and making me climax. The pulsing action caused my flesh to ‘wobble’ but internally it didn’t really do an awful lot for me. The tip didn’t seem to stimulate my G-spot very well, no matter how far the shaft was inserted. The flared base did not reach my clitoris whatsoever, so for clitoral stimulation (which I need to orgasm) I had to use my trusty battery powered wand.

And the pulsing, though a new experience, was nothing like the action of ‘proper sex;’ it was more a shake and rattling sensation on my lady parts which just bemused me and left me feeling frustrated. The textured grooves gave some degree of massage but not enough to write home about, and they seemed to serve better at trapping lubricant and body fluids. Cleaning was not too laborious- just wash in warm soapy water or with a sex toy cleaner, then leave to air-dry. Do not dry it with a cloth / towel or anything else, as the silicone is a lint-magnet!

Eins, Zwei, Drei, is this a toy I should buy?

So what did I like about this toy? The magnetic ‘click ‘n charge’ feature I like a lot. Just not the 16 hours charging time. The pulsing is nice if you want a sex toy that does the ‘work’ for you, but don’t expect a ‘sex machine’ because it ain’t that at all! I found the constant patterns, the ‘Rattle’ algorithmic mode, and the ‘Rumba’ Dynamic mode to be my preferable functions.

How do I rate it? Scores on the Drei are:

  • Usability = 8/10
  • Novelty = 8/10
  • Orgasm capability = 6/10
  • Value for money (based on RRP) = 5/10
  • overall = 7/10

Fun Factory Jiggle Bouncer

Suction dildo to make me Bounce, like Kelis’s single

The Fun Factory Jiggle Bouncer packaging is, well, fun, with a picture of a bartender shaking a cocktail, on the outer sleeve. Inside is a gold box, containing the red phallus. The dildo itself is very striking; I love the red colour, and the wavy shaping. It does sound like a muffled maraca of sorts!

It jiggles, like a ‘muffled maraca!’

The suction cup isn’t the best; I tried wetting it and sticking it to the flat edge of my bathtub, and bouncing up and down, which lead to it coming unstuck a few times. I also tried it on the floor, and it became my own personal space hopper! That provided some amusement.

Although the suction cup is not very sticky, the silicone is adept enough at attracting lint, which isn’t ideal. However, this should not pose too much of a problem for me, seeing as I intend to store it in the box.

The feel of the jiggle balls rotating is very unique, and it feels very pleasurable hitting my front wall. It is very smooth, maybe a mere hint of some drag. The Jiggle Bouncer does lack texturing, which would be a great (and in some cases necessary) addition, to facilitate clitoral stimulation. This would enable awesome blended orgasms without the need for a bullet vibe or similar.

I really like the girth on this toy; filling enough without being too much of a stretch. I will have much fun hopping on this bad boy. Which is just as well, as this bunny likes to hop!

How does it rate?
  • Aesthetics = 9/10
  • Orgasm capability = 9/10
  • Ease of use = 10/10
  • Value = 8/10
  • Overall = 9/10

 

Where to buy

The Fun Factory Jiggle Bouncer is available in black from Lovehoney for  £69.99.

In Canada / USA, Betty’s Toy Box stock the above three colour variants for $99.99.

So Divine Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand

I recently received the So Divine Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand free of charge, courtesy of So Divine in exchange for my honest impartial review.

Packaging

The wand comes in a cardboard box, nestled in a foam insert. Included are the following:

  • 3-pin UK plug with USB connection.
  • the USB-compatible magnetic charging cable.
  • a dark purple velvet storage drawstring pouch.

Instructions on how to operate the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand are on the reverse of the box (see below).

Features of the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand

The wand is made from silicone and does not contain latex or phthalates. It is ultra quiet and is rechargeable with a run-time of up to 2 hours. The two ends have separate motors, so the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand can be used as an external vibrator (at the wider end) or an internal vibrator (at the tapered end. The motors cannot be turned on simultaneously though. Each motor has 3 speed settings and 7 pattern settings. Lastly the Sweetest Taboo is waterproof, if you wish to use it in the bath or shower.

 

How to operate the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand

The front of the wand has the three function buttons moulded into the silicone. They are a solid ‘up’ triangle (pointing to the wider end), a ‘()’ power button, and a solid ‘down’ triangle (pointing to the narrow end).

Not just a handle…it’s also an internal vibrator!

On the rear of the wand are the magnetic connecting points for the charging cable. The magnetic contacts on the charging cable connect to the wand, and the USB end can be plugged into the 3-pin plug to connect directly to the mains. Alternatively, you can connect the USB end to your laptop / PC. Charging may be slower this way, so I tend to use the mains plug.

To turn the wand on, press and hold the () button, until the blue LED lights up. The up and down buttons control the motors in the two ends (‘up’ to switch the wider end on; ‘down’ to switch the narrower end on). Repeatedly pressing either the up or down button cycles through the 3 continuous speeds and 7 pulsating patterns.

Easy to use. Does what it says on the box!
What are the vibrations like?

The vibrations of the Sweetest Taboo are higher frequency akin to the Lealso Massager, so they are not deep and rumbly. I tend to prefer constant vibrations to patterns, so whichever end I use, I mainly use the first three settings. For those that like patterns, the best way to describe them are as follows:

  1. Fast Pulse.
  2. Four fast pulses followed by a longer pulse, repeated.
  3. Decreasing frequency wave, alternating with increasing frequency wave.
  4. Ramping interval wave, (8 stages).
  5. High frequency longer pulses.
  6. Low frequency pulse followed by 10 high frequency pulses, repeated.
  7. Another wave pattern that seems quite similar to pattern 3 above!

As an external massager, the silicone head is soft against my vulva and clitoris with minimal drag, though I do like to use a water-based lubricant to make it glide more easily.

Internally, the shaft end sits nicely against my front wall and G-spot, but I still need clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm, which means I need a second vibrator or bullet.

The buttons I feel are placed a bit low on the shaft, as when it’s being used internally it is slightly awkward to press the ‘down’ triangle button without it getting slick from lubricant. Moreover, if you’re into patterns, you’re going to need to repeatedly press the same button to cycle through them until you reach the one you like. Not so much a problem for me, but its a factor to bear in mind.

Final Thoughts

This wand is priced at £54.99, and So Divine also sell a purple version, the ‘Wicked Game’ which I believe to be functionally equivalent. The price seems to be fair for a mid-range toy, and unlike most other ‘wands’ which can only be used externally, this dual ended variation gives you more options for play.

It’s not necessarily going to be for power queens, so if you’re looking for Doxy-esque vibrations, it won’t be for you.

As a rechargeable toy, it will save you pennies in terms of batteries, so if you’re new to toys, it’ll be a better option than a cheaper battery-powered vibrator.

Overall I’d rate it 8/10 for it’s appearance, ease of use and orgasm capability.

So Divine range

I was recently asked if I’d like to try some toys from the So Divine range. What’s a Bunny to do? Shake my cotton tail and say ‘Yes please!’ is what yours truly had to say. As swift as my bunny nose can twitch (like in the sit-com Bewitched), I was in receipt of a package full of goodies. This blog post will cover two smaller items, whilst the two larger items will be dealt with in separate blog posts.

In my package, I received the

Woah! That’s a task and a half, but some-bunny’s got to do it. So enough grazing in the meadow! On to the bunny bed-hopping trials to see how the smaller items fare against this discerning toy collector…

Sweet Sensation Booty plug

Its itty, blingy and perfectly formed. Made from purple silicone, with a narrow stem and circular base sporting the faux crystal, this plug has a simple cuteness to it. The Sweet Sensation is non-intimidating, and arrived in a small sealed cardboard box, encased within a foam insert. A purple velvety storage bag is also in the box, which is a lovely touch.


To use, I simply applied some water-based lubricant to my anus and the butt plug, then gently inserted it. Despite its small size, it felt sizeable enough on entry to know that I’d had something inserted into my butt. The widest part of the plug has a circumference measuring 3 5/8 inches.

The jewelled base looked pretty peeking between my derriere cheeks. As the picture below displays, the crystal can be removed, for more thorough cleaning. To clean the plug, either boil for 5-10 minutes or use sex toy cleaner / antibacterial soap and water.


I spent some time sat down with the plug inserted and it felt comfortable enough for the majority of the duration. Towards the end, there was a slight ‘pinching sensation.’ This was either from the edge of the silicone base rubbing on my skin, or potentially from body hair getting pulled. So I probably wore the plug for a maximum duration of about 2 hours.

All in all, the Sweet Sensation booty plug is a decent little silicone plug for beginners, or users who prefer smaller plugs. It can be purchased here for £19.99.

Lovesexy Silky Touch Vibrator

The Silky Touch really does have a satin-soft finish to the silicone on this cute purple vibrator. It was the first thing I noticed on pulling it out of the little box. The vibrator uses a single AA battery. To be honest, I do not necessarily expect to gain much from using a small battery powered vibrator, as I have got accustomed to deeper rumbly vibrators. Putting the battery into the vibrator was slightly awkward, as the silicone sleeve overhangs the battery compartment opening. Therefore it was slightly tricky lining the cap back up and fitting it on.


Once that was achieved, switching the vibrator on was easy enough. Simply press and hold the button, then press the button to cycle through the 10 functions. The first three settings are continuous vibrations in increasing intensities. Subsequently, the other functions are all pattern based.

My initial thoughts on using the Silky Touch are that it is a bit too buzzy for my liking. It would be better suited to beginners, or those that like buzzier, less powerful vibrations.

I do like the texturing on the sleeve. It makes the vibrator more interesting than a standard bullet. The sleeve can be removed, but unless you wish to use the sleeve on a finger, I’m not sure why you’d want to remove the sleeve to use the bullet on its own.

Overall, I’d say this is an ideal toy for a beginner or someone looking for a small battery powered vibrator with some texturing. It’s not for size or power queens.

Satisfyer Next Generation Clitoral Stimulators Part 2

Penguin Pro Next Generation

More like a ‘penguin’ than the original model, this cute black and white silicone toy is black and white. ‘He’ sports an adorable pink bow tie. I was offered the opportunity to test the Pro Penguin Next Generation, by Satisfyer, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

How the Pro Penguin Next Generation differs from the Pro 2 Next Generation

The suction aperture is different from the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation in that the silicone edge is thinner, and it is more squared in shape.  It also has the lower and higher intensity dual-function button. On the Pro Penguin Next Generation , this is represented by the 2-wave and 4-wave buttons respectively.  The main difference is that there is no separate power button. In addition, the buttons on the Pro Penguin Next Generation are on the front of the toy. They appear on the rear of the handle on both the original Pro 2 and the Pro 2 Next Generation.

Another difference is that the Pro Penguin Next Generation is mostly silicone. The Pro 2, meanwhile is an ABS plastic body/handle with silicone head and buttons. The head on the Pro Penguin Next Generation is also slightly more angled than the Pro 2. This may mean a slight flex of the wrist which could aggravate joint problems in users who suffer mobility issues. The fact that the button is located on the front of the toy makes it slightly easier to operate than the Pro 2 Next Generation. I can use my thumb to press the increase and decrease functions. With the Pro 2 Next Generation, I find this slightly trickier, as it is more of a stretch for my stubby digits.

Functionally similar to the Pro 2 Next Generation

The pressure wave suction technology is the same as for the Pro 2 , and both the Pro Penguin Next Generation and Pro 2 Next Generation have 11 intensity settings. The Penguin Pro Next Generation charges via its magnetic USB cable, akin to the Pro 2 Next Generation. The Pro Penguin Next Generation is slightly quicker to charge, taking about 1.5 hours. It can be operated for about the same amount of time. Though funnily, the manual states this as 90 minutes (underneath the 1.5 hour charge time). Maybe it’s just a psychological trick to make you think you’re getting more run-time than ‘down-time.’ It did make me smile though. Whilst charging, the button will illuminate and flash. The illumination remains constant once the toy is fully charged.

Suck it and see

With my little Pro Penguin Next Generation ready to suck, I parted my labia and sited the head over my clitoris. To switch the unit on, simply press and hold the 4-wave intensity button for 2 seconds. This will also switch the unit off. The aperture is wide enough to give reasonably broad clitoral suction. The suction stimulates and engorges the erogenous tissue of the clitoris without being ticklish or too strong.


Being able to dial up and down through the intensities means you can edge play (prolonging the pleasure). Alternatively you can treat yourself to multiple orgasms. Unlike with some bullet vibrators that can be too much stimulation for a clitoris recovering from orgasm, the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation (and its peers) can help you tip over the edge into another orgasm. Sweet!

Maintenance

Cleaning the Pro Penguin Next Generation is a doddle. Simply remove the silicone head and wash with warm soapy water, then leave to air-dry. If you wish to clean the main unit, it can be wiped over with a cloth and sex-toy cleaner. A cotton bud can be used to clean the nozzle. Although the unit is waterproof, I’m not sure I’d submerge it completely. But you can take the Pro Penguin Next Generation in the bath or shower, if you so wish.

Final Thoughts

The Pro Penguin Next Generation is a cute toy, that delivers satisfying (oops) orgasms, with ease, and you won’t need batteries either. Bonus. Functionally, it’s hard to say which is the better between the Pro Penguin Next Generation and the Pro 2 Next Generation. So I guess the deciding factor will be the aethetic appearance and the cost. I think the Pro Penguin Next Generation is the nicer looking toy. Not to mention it’s so cute!

Where to buy your Penguin Pro Next Generation

Betty’s Toy Box are selling the Penguin Pro for $54.99.

Leaf Vitality+ USB rechargeable vibrator

Turning over a new Leaf

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 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+
  • 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.

Godemiche Ambit 6-inch Pastel silicone dildo

Pretty in pink

The Godemiche Ambit attracted me by its lush curvy lines and bulbous head – seemingly ideal as a G-spotting dildo. Having tried the Adam, by Godemiche, I like its prominent coronal ridge but find it a bit meaty at times. Also it doesn’t bend to enable easy G-spot reachability. Hence, I thought I ought to try an Ambit! The Pastel range was launched shortly before Easter, including the following colours:

  • Princess Perfume
  • Peach Puff,
  • Paris Green
  • Electric Lavender
  • Mellow Yellow
  • Blue Lagoon.

I opted for the Princess Perfume (pink) and went for a What the Flop! sale Ambit, priced at £16.80 (including postage). I was informed in the description that there was an air bubble on the head. It is almost centrally located on the underside of the bulbous ‘glans’ and is approximately 7mm in diameter. I actually like it, as it makes it unique and a one-of-a-kind that no other Princess Perfume Ambit will have.

Bubble…bubble

Godemiche actually had a competition recently to engage sex toy enthusiasts by voting for their favourite pastel hue from the above list. I voted Mellow Yellow, purely because it evokes thoughts of spring/ summer and I have no yellow toys. Paris Green was selected as the winning shade. But I didn’t feel like I’d lost out on the prize as I had my very own pastel Ambit already!

Prizeworthy

Ok, so I did not win an Ambit, but by making my purchase, I did win some fun play-time with this Pink pleaser. The curve on the shaft and its bulbous head target the G-spot exceedingly well. If I weren’t so dehydrated at the time of testing, I may well have squirted. The ‘urge to pee’ feeling was definitely there (despite having urinated prior to play). I really wanted to squirt. I even had a towel underneath me to prepare, but it simply would not happen. Maybe one day it will. But until then, I will still enjoy using the Ambit.

The presence of the bubble in the head doesn’t do anything to detract from the experience, except maybe to act as a recess that lube and ‘sex juice’ can get into. This is easily cleaned off with sex toy cleaner and water. I tried boiling the Ambit for 5-10 minutes to be sure, and that all went fine. I am really attracted to the solar flare range of the Ambit…If I can justify buying a second one, I’d love to get a sparkly version. After all, who doesn’t want a glittery phallus?! And Godemiche, if you ever need someone to test a new Ambit colour, here’s a Bunny that will happily step up.

How does Ambit rate?
  • Appearance = 9/10
  • Value = 8/10 (based on full-price Ambits)
  • G-spot reachability = 10/10
  • Overall = 9/10

Tantus Bound – Cocoa

Roped-up silicone

The Tantus Bound dildo is a realistic looking phallus with an extra twist; rope texturing entwined around a bulging hulk of a peen! Mine is the Cocoa version, but it is also available from Tantus in Cream or Black. Bound was designed by SheVibe, and manufactured / distributed by Tantus. It is made from 100% ultra-premium silicone, so completely body safe and is harness-compatible. Tantus Bound can also be used anally, due to its flared base. I have not tested it this way, only vaginally.

The main feature that attracted me to the Tantus Bound is its intricate texture. I have tried tying an actual penis with rope. But the main purpose was to act as a cock-ring to maintain Mr Bunny’s erection. I did not actually have the rope enter me. I’m not even sure I would actually want to attempt that! Imagine the conversation with my GP when I go in with a sore vagina that has been chafed by nylon! Far safer to use a textured dildo.

The rope criss-crosses the top third of Bound, just behind the glans. It traverses its way around the shaft about two-thirds of the way, before wrapping around in three sequential strands at the base. Prominent veins ‘squiggle’ vertically down the shaft, bulging between the ropey strands. Visually, it looks pretty exciting, and though the twine-like texturing is only a few millimeters in diameter it feels real enough on handling the dildo.

Knotty pleasure

Riding the Tantus Bound was as good as I’d hoped it would be. There was plenty of sensation, with a fulfilling amount of girth and length (just over 6 inches from head to base). It is on the firmer side, having less ‘squishiness’ than the dual density Flurry (also by Tantus). But that’s fine, because sometimes a bit more muscle is what this Bunny needs, and Bound is a solid Hulk of silicone.

The texturing is stimulating without being too rough. Bumps from the rope stroke my inner walls, and arouse my masochistic side on the odd occasion they rub into my pubic bone. It reminds me that self-pleasure can be raw and ‘animalistic,’ as well as a leisurely ascension up the escalator to orgiastic delight.

Having said that, the Tantus Bound needs to be treated with care. Usually I have to warm up using a non-textured silicone dildo, or a glass dildo before I’m lubricated enough to accept the knotty surface of Bound. I find I don’t necessarily need to thrust the Bound to get the stimulation I need. I can either simply clench my kegel muscles. Alternatively, I can gyrate my hips whilst sitting astride it and using a clitoral vibrator.

Aftercare is a bit more involved for this dildo, since it has so many ridges and crevices for nasty germs to hide. I use an antibacterial cleaner, followed by boiling for 5-10 minutes in water to sterilise.

In a bind

I want to love the Bound. I really like it. Aesthetically I rate it 10/10. The quality is also top-(k)notch (see what I did there?). But in terms of giving pleasure, it is let down by the fact that it does not have the right angling to hit my G-spot. Also, since it does require a ‘warm-up’, I’m mainly going to use Bound when I have a good amount of time to myself. Overall I’d have to rate this dildo 7.5/10, which is still a pretty good score. Those seeking extra texture will hopefully enjoy this twisted piece of silicone.
