Would You Like Some Pleasure With Your Pain?: Icicles 38

20150529_093456-2

My birthday is coming up, and there are two things I like more than anything during sex; a little pleasure, and just the right amount of pain. It’s even better when there is a way to put both of them together in one toy. The Icicles 38 brings both worlds together perfectly. For those of you not familiar, 38 is a glass dildo with a bulbous end, perfect for g-spot, and anal penetration. I was a little on the fence with a straight dildo, because I normally have a lot of luck with curved g-spot toys, but this one completely changed my mind. I have had great experiences with glass in the past, my favorite one being Icicles No. 18, so I am glad I got the same results with yet another one.

When I first got it, I thought the bulb at the end was going to be too big, but it was just the right size. Despite the handle being straight, I was able to rock the big bulb back and forth right on my g-spot. It took me about 5 minutes before I was able to squirt, which isn’t an easy feat for me with internal stimulation alone. The swirls within the handle didn’t really add to the experience of the penetration, but my partner said while he was using the flogger side, it was a great grip. The great thing about glass toys is no matter where you leave it, upon insertion it is always going to have that coldness until it finally warms up while you’re using it. Also, being glass, I was able to use Uberlube, which happens to be my favorite silicone lubricant.

The flogger side was amazing! I loved everything from the smell of the leather, to how it felt being slapped against my bare skin. My partner tried the first couple of whacks on my ass and then moved to the most sensitive parts of my body like my inner legs, arms, and across my chest. The leather from the toy stung and left a small red mark which went away pretty soon after we were done. He went between hard whacks, soft whacks, and lightly brushing across my skin. It was easy to maneuver and the weight was just right in his hand. I don’t think I will be able to ever get regular birthday spankings again.

I would say overall it’s a great idea for combining the best of both worlds, however, I can see where it might be a little frustrating to change up at the spur of the moment. I feel like a towel might need to be nearby when using this product. Going from using it as a toy, to using it as a flogger, you would probably want to at least wipe it down in between. Since the handle is glass, it might become a little too slippery with fluids and could possibly fly out of your hand.

Overall if you’re looking for a nice leather flogger which also functions as an amazing g-spot toy, look no further than the Icicles 38. Not only is it great to play with, but like most glass toys, it is beautiful to look at. It’s also body safe, and compatible with any lubricant, all of which make a great toy!

You’re Not Going Anywhere: Edge Leather 6-Point Hogtie

This week I have not behaved. I have been increasingly irritable and quick to snap. I took it too far this week with my partner. The minute I realized my attitude had been an issue, he came over with the Edge Leather 6-point Hog Tie and a couple of other goodies to discipline me for being a heinous bitch this week.

When he got to my place he told me that he was going to tie me up and do whatever he pleases with me. I have never dabbled in BDSM before him, and I have been asking lately if we could get farther into some more of the heavier stuff, (he’s been easing me into it). We have messed around with floggers, crops, drip candles, gags, and restraints, but this was my first time with a hogtie.

I noticed with the Edge Hog Tie, it does not come with a set of cuffs already attached. The good part about that though is how easy it is to interchange between what I had already, and what he brought. I have a pair of the Realms Edge Leather cuffs that have been waiting to be broken in, and they attached perfectly to the hogtie. This is a 6-point hog tie, the first, and only, on the market, so not only can you put on handcuffs and ankle cuffs, but there is also an extra set for thigh, bicep, or any other restraint or attachment that you want to add to it.

I liked how sturdy the hand-stitched cowhide leather was. There was a lot of moving and position changing, and through it all, not one time was I worried that I would pop the clips that connect with a thick nickel free O-ring. The heavy duty clips at the end also gave me a peace of mind with how sturdy they are. I have had a cheaper hogtie in the past and the clips snapped almost immediately. With how good the positions I was in this time around felt, the thought of the hogtie breaking was right up there with a dying vibrator right before orgasm.

Being in a hogtie was definitely an experience. I liked the idea of not being able to move with my wrists and ankles tied behind my back. It gave my partner full, and complete control, which is something I enjoy tremendously. There were times that it got so intense, he was able to grab the center of the hogtie and pull me up to put me in another position. It gets 5 stars in my book. The main thing a good hogtie needs is durability, and I believe with the added extra rings, and the leather/nickel free materials, Edge hit the nail on the head.
