So Divine’s First Anniversary celebration

So Divine
Last night at ‘Tonight Josephine’

I first heard of So Divine products when I was approached by Sophie at Fuel PR. I was lucky to be able to test their Sweet Sensation and Bootylicious butt plugs, as well as their Sweetest Taboo wand. More recently I put their Let’s Go Crazy heating rabbit vibrator through its paces.

Receiving an invite to celebrate So Divine’s first anniversary seemed too good an opportunity to miss, so along I went to Waterloo Road. The venue was Tonight Josephine, a vibrant cocktail bar. As this was my first real life outing in person as a ‘sex blogger,’ I thought it would be fun and less daunting to invite a fellow blogger. @RomanticIsa was happy to be my blogger companion, and it served as a great ice-breaker in the run up to Eroticon.

On entry to Tonight Josephine, we met some lovely people from Fuel PR, including Sophie, Susan and Charlotte. We were gifted with some fun black tote goody bags, containing the Kiss Kiss vibrating rabbit (sister to the Let’s Go Crazy), and a silver ‘I Need You Tonight’ bullet vibrator. Their latest product, a pink silicone USB stick, that also functions as a rechargeable clitoral vibrator was also in the bag. Of course, I tried that out later when I got home!

Meeting new faces

I hadn’t realised that so many companies supplied So Divine products. I learnt that among them are Superdrug and Ocado! Throughout the evening, prosecco and pizza were in abundance, along with some delicious iced biscuits. I chatted to some of the marketing and buying team members at Bondara, including Jonathan, Daisy and Rose. We also chatted to the head of So Divine, and gave him some feedback about our preferences for vibrating toys. Our message to him was keep creating affordable good quality products. We encouraged that So Divine focus more on the continuous vibrations rather than patterns. Rumbly versus ‘buzzy’ vibrations are also popular among the blogging community.

In the pipeline for the future are a semi-realistic squishy silicone dildo with suction cap. It looks really cool, as it is see-through with a blue core. There is a pronounced coronal ridge. I think it will provide pleasurable internal stimulation, and feel reasonably ‘life-like.’ The suction cap is also super  sticky! The dildo remained perched  on the bar during the evening! Also in development is a clitoral suction toy, that has a soft silicone aperture and a good range of suction intensities.

So Divine wish to extend their range to include lubricants, lingerie and other types of sex toys. I’d say there’s plenty to celebrate for them, and the future looks promising!

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.

So Divine Bootylicious Butt Plug

I was asked if I’d like to try So Divine’s Bootylicious Butt Plug in exchange for an honest review. The Bootylicious Butt Plug is the larger-sized sibling to the Sweet Sensation plug. Its design and silicone body are essentially the same as the smaller predecessor. The packaging is pretty much identical also, consisting of the white and purple box. The So Divine Bootylicious Butt Plug is shown on the front of the box. A clear window on the back shows the actual plug inside the box. A schematic diagram of three little butt plugs highlights the Bootylicious Butt Plug as the ‘middle-weight contender.’

The Bootylicious Booty Plug is the middle-weight plug from the So Divine range

 

Inside the box, the plug sits in a foam insert within a pull-out tray. The plug has a clear faux crystal in its base, and there are two other crystals in the box. One is purple, whilst the other is yellow.  The crystals do have a rough ‘tag’ on the circumference. I suspect these are from cutting the crystals out of their moulds.

Under the plug, there is a purple velvet drawstring pouch. The plug itself measures 3.3 inches long and the circular base is 1.5 inches wide. The widest part of the bulb has a circumference of 4.5 inches, and the insertable length is 2.1 inches.

Feeling Bootylicious

To use the Bootylicious Butt Plug, I find I need to be relaxed and ideally to have had an orgasm prior to inserting. The plug needs copious water-based lubricant, since it is silicone so has greater resistance than glass or metal. The silicone is also relatively firm. The shape of the plug is squat and compact. Once inserted, the plug feels comfortable to wear, though I only wore it for about 2 hours at most in any one time. I like the fact the crystal is changeable and that you can wash the crystals separately to remove any ‘gunk.’

Cleaning the So Divine Bootylicious Butt Plug is easy. Just clean with antibacterial soap / sex-toy cleaner and water. You can also sterilise by boiling the plug for 5-10 minutes. The Bootylicious plug retails for £22.99 from Lovehoney.

Buy Tracey Cox Supersex Anal Beads (worth £12.99) for only £5 when you buy a butt plug.

As a plug for an intermediate anal toy user, I’d say the Bootylicious Booty Plug is a perfectly suitable contender. If you like a bit of ‘bling,’ ease of maintenance and (reasonably firm) silicone, then it will work for you. Conversely, if you like larger/ longer anal toys, temperature play and the ability to use silicone-based or hybrid lubricants, then it perhaps will not be the right plug for you.

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.

I’d like to thank So Divine for giving me the opportunity to test the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand. 

 

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 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 from Bondara for £14.99.

 

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.
