Riding the Wave: Nalone Wave

I really want to like rabbits, I do. Unfortunately, this is the category I have a love/hate relationship with. I always love seeing different style rabbits and all of the accouterments that come with them. I hate, the anticipation of a breakthrough for my vagina, and then the letdown I have become accustomed to. That being said, I wish I could bring the good news that the Wave by Nalone did it for me, but then I’d be lying.20160611_165452

The Wave is a silicone luxury rabbit vibrator by Nalone. It is rechargeable and splash-resistant, and comes with a life-saving travel lock. It also comes with a nice 1-year warranty through Nalone. It boasts a 10” length (6” insertable) shaft with “waving” beads, and a thrusting head. The shaft has its own motor which controls 7 shaft and head speeds and patterns, and 3 wave speeds. The clitoral piece is flexible and also has an independent motor which controls the 5 buzzy speeds and patterns.

When I say buzzy, I don’t mean it in a good way. The vibrations on the clit stim were so buzzy it almost felt itchy. When I use rabbits I always like the push the clit stim down to increase the vibrations. With the flexibility of the arm, I was unable to do that.  It almost seemed broken with how flexible it was. I guess too much of a good thing is more than just a saying. Another issue I had with the clit piece is how far down it is on the toy. I know that standard rabbits normally have it at the bottom of the shaft, but with something that long, it makes it impossible for non-large toy users to appreciate. The one plus about it if you want to think outside the box, pun intended, is the clitoral piece is super awesome for anal tickling. Almost as good as the real deal. Clitoral issues aside, the shaft wasn’t as disappointing as I thought it would be.20160611_165535

The shaft was a little bit too large for me to take, but what I did get in was girthy without being overwhelming. Short arms and long shaft posed a problem with this toy. I found it very hard to thrust with the length. The beads weren’t as 20160611_165554.jpgeasy to feel as I thought they would unless I tightened using my Kegels. The three speeds were decent, but it didn’t really do anything for me until I got on the third one. It was an enjoyable constant thrusting which hit nicely against my g-spot, but unfortunately didn’t make me climax. The head was a nice size; however, it could have been a little more bulbous. The one plus side about the long shaft is the availability or a lazy orgasm. Holding the toy with my feet makes for great hands-free masturbation for those times I can’t be bothered to use my hands. It also makes for a great “helping hand” when using for a cam show. So, overall, the toy wasn’t a complete downer20160611_165505.

As much as I wanted this to be an awesome rabbit it fell short. Benefit of the long shaft included, I would not recommend getting this unless you’re into larger toys. It’s hard to appreciate the clitoral stim if you’re not able to take the whole toy. The thrusting and beads are nice, but it’s also another user basis. If you’re sensitive to texture and have strong Kegel muscles it’ll work, if not, you may have an issue with this toy. This toy could be good for some people, just not for me. If you need me, I’ll be researching the next new rabbit.

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling: Nu Toys Femme Luxe Rabbit

I love it when companies think out of the box when they design new toys. It makes me happy to know that the companies still have the consumer in mind when thinking of new innovative ways to take old toys to another level. I have always been a fan of Nu Toys. I love their Sensuelle Point bullet almost as much as my Tango. I think the power of their toys is just what I need to rock my world. However, they missed the mark when designing the Lux Rabbit.

2015-12-05-18.57.10.jpg.jpg

The Sensuelle Femme Lux Rabbit is a silicone, USB rechargeable rabbit. The toy thankfully charges with a chrome socket, similar to the Lelo second generation toys, which is exciting, because as much as I love the Nu brand, the charging dock was a huge pain in the ass. It has an insertable length of 4 inches, which is just right for me, with a not so overwhelming 1.5-inch girth. The clitoral stimulator measures in at 2 inches long,  and 1 inch wide, which isn’t too obtrusive. It has ten vibration functions in the shaft and three different speeds with the rolling clitoral ball. It has a simple two-button interface that is easy to maneuver even in the heat of the moment. There are two motors, with one in the shaft, and you guessed it, one in the clitoral stim. Both motors are controlled separately with each button. It comes in purple and pink and includes an excellent one year warranty. It’s a relatively light toy to hold, but it fits nicely in your hand. Bonus point for coming with a nice storage bag as well.wp-1449359909872.jpgwp-1449361165283.jpg

I have heard that the rolling ball in the Sensuelle G is fantastic, so I couldn’t wait to see how it would feel in the rabbit they designed. The internal part was a perfect size and nestled right up against my g-spot. It’s bulbous and not too large, but just enough to make you feel full. My main problem with this toy, however, was the rolling ball in the clitoral piece. Talk about a major disappointment! Not only was it like hearing a robot walk (not discreet!), but it served no purpose, in my opinion. I don’t feel like the ball was large enough, or maybe the silicone was too thick. I wasn’t really able to feel the ball doing too much. I expected the ball to push up the silicone a little bit more than it did, and I think that’s the main reason I wasn’t able to experience how great the ball would be. I can see the genius behind the idea, but I think they need to do a little more work in that aspect.

wp-1449359781267.jpgI will say that the clitoral piece sat right against my clit with no issues. It has little nubbies for added extra sensation that feels kind of cool. Even when I rocked the shaft against my g-spot, the clitoral part sat very nicely on top. The design is a delightful change of pace. Some rabbits I have tried have completely missed altogether. Unfortunately, this was the only good part about the clitoral stim, which is a little disappointing for women who have issue climaxing from g-spot alone. The clitoral stim also didn’t vibrate which was another big problem. I would be more accepting of the rolling ball failure if I could turn it off and use vibration instead, but, unfortunately, the only thing I can do with it is turn it off or bump the useless ball up two more notches as well as have a louder mechanical noise cheering me on. I hate to say it again, but I can not stress enough how loud the clitoral ball rolling is.

 

 

I do have to say that using this toy wasn’t a complete bust. As I mentioned before the shaft is really great for g-spot stimulation. I was able to have a nice g-spot orgasm, despite not having much clitoral stimulation. Although I did not use the ball, the nubs added a nice sensation while I sitting against my clit. The silicone glided smoothly when using the toy and doesn’t seem to grab onto any fuzz or dust when in storage for a while. I don’t think this would be a toy that I would use all the time, but anytime I want a nice vibrating internal toy I would grab it. I think if they added more vibration modes to the clitoral piece and worked on the noise factor, and figured a way to get the ball to roll properly this could possibly be the rabbit to end all others. I would also like to have the rolling ball in the shaft as well and see how that feels, but overall it wasn’t as exciting as it was made out to be.2015-12-05-18.58.12.jpg.jpg

Sexy Saturday: The Silhouette S17

California Exotics has really outdone themselves with the Silhouette line; a sexy and sleek line of rechargeable silicone vibrating toys. The line at first look is very classy, and the packaging doubles as a storage area for your toys, as well as a great box with a window, which is great for gift giving with the rapidly approaching holiday season. They come in three colors: red, purple, and pink. They all have powerful vibrations and smooth satin silicone that makes you want to pet it over and over again. It’s easy on the eyes and even better inside of you.

When I received the Silhouette 17 I was super excited. I have had a couple of rabbits such as the Sugar Pop and the Lelo Ina, but I have been itching for a new one for a while now. Normally I like my rabbits to have all the bells and whistles with the beads and rotation, but with the S17 I was willing to make sacrifices. I’m glad I did because this toy is worth it.

As previously stated, the S17 is a rabbit vibrator made of high-quality velvet feeling silicone. The silicone is super easy to clean and dry without any fuzz catching on it. There is a small seam along the back of the shaft, but you can’t feel it once the toy is in use. It has a two button interface and great power. The one complaint I have with the button interface was how confusing it could get in the middle of using it. To turn the toy on you have to press the bottom  button unless you have to travel lock function on, which in that case, you would just hold both buttons for 4 seconds. The top button is for changing throughout the 10 powerful levels of vibration, pulsation, and escalation. It also doubles as the increase button for all of the above mentioned. The bottom button has to be held down as well, to decrease whatever function you’re on. My first time it took me a while to figure out, but after you master it, you’ll be fine.

wpid-wp-1445138803890.jpgBefore using the S17, I applied some Sassy to the tip and slid it in. The first thing I noticed was the placement of the clitoral arm. It didn’t seem to lay flat on my clit, but it was enough to where I was able to feel some of the glorious ridges on it. The shaft of the toy was a different story and hit right on my g-spot with very little maneuvering. The curve and bulbous end of the shaft made my g-spot feel like it was in heaven. When using it, I was able to use the bottom of the toy to rock in slightly back and forth. The vibrations were intense and within about 5 minutes I was able to reach orgasm. I didn’t have a dual orgasm right away, but the second time since I was already sensitive, I was able to hit a home run.

The ridges on the clitoral piece added for great sensation even though the whole thing didn’t cover in the spots I wanted. While rocking it back and forth to hit my g-spot, a couple of the ridges were able to actually push my hood back and make it easier for direct clitoral sensation. I really wish the clitoral arm on this toy would have been a little bit shorter, but with how wide it was, there was a little more room to wiggle it around. The fact that the clitoral piece was easy to manipulate was a godsend, because, unfortunately, it took a lot of moving to get it where I wanted at first. I do have to say, though, this is the first toy I have been able to climax from while using a pulsation mode.

Overall, I would have to say that this toy is worth it if you like rabbit style vibrators. I love that it’s rechargeable so I don’t have to keep buying batteries. The vibrations are intense and the shape for g-spot stimulation is spot on. The ridges on the clitoral piece are pretty interesting as well, however, the clitoral piece might not fit your anatomy. The only problems I have with this toy is the clitoral piece being too big and the controls for the modes. You may not have the same results that I did, hell, they may even be better, but I still think it’s a good toy to add to your collection.
