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.

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

5 Self-Revelations from Working at a Sex Shop

Before I got a job working at a sex shop, I had zero experience with anything past your basic straight vibrator. I considered doggy style to be the bees knees, and I had no idea how my body worked, I didn’t even know what anal sex entailed, or that straight men even liked it. I couldn’t tell you the difference between lubes to save my life, and I was completely uncomfortable mentioning anything sexual around anyone I knew. I have come a far way since I got the job two years ago, and some of the things I have learned have not only helped me with my job, but as well as my sex life, and personal relationships. Since there has been so much I’ve been able to learn, I’ve composed a list of the most exciting things.

1. The stuff I knew nothing about, became my favorite.

As I mentioned before I knew there were other items out there such as bullets and realistic vibrators, but I never knew the amount of different things people could be into. I have seen women smaller than me pick up 14-inch dongs, and men who have bought butt plugs the size of an arm. I was shocked to learn that there was a whole style dedicated to people who like to inflict pain, or receive it, and I was even more shocked when I realized how much I was into it myself. I never thought I would be able to even get spanked during sex, let alone getting choked, slapped, and spanked to the point of a black and blue ass. It was one of those experiences I would have never tried if I would have kept a closed mind. One of my favorite things to this day has to be getting choked right before orgasm and being bent over the bed getting hit with a crop, hand, or paddle repeatedly until I can’t sit down the next day.

2. Using lube doesn’t mean you’re dried out.

Lube is one of the most important things you can use during sex or masturbation. Water based is my favorite and I use it for everything. As much as I didn’t believe it, it has made a world of difference in masturbation as well as sex. I find that everything slides easier, and it’s so much smoother when gliding toys across my clit. It also makes anal sex so much better (granted, you don’t use a desensitizer and reach for the Sassy, or whatever your preference). I’ve also learned that silicone lubricant is great for smoothing my hair and making it frizz free, as well as fixing squeaky door hinges. It’s also great for sex in the shower since it won’t wash away, but, unfortunately, I have also learned my body doesn’t react well with it, so it’s mainly for topical use in my case. It can be great for anal as well, in fact, it’s the most preferred lube for it.

3. There’s more than doggy style and missionary, and it still feels good.

Doggy style used to be my go-to move for reach orgasm, and I wasn’t able to end sex without doing it. I can honestly say I have picked up so many different tips and tricks, that I can’t say I’ve been bent over in a long time. Reading some of the books we have at work has truly helped my sex life. I have learned some positions I have been able to do only once, and I have found some positions I have to do every single time. It doesn’t just stop at sex either. I have been able to spice up masturbation by putting myself into some pretty interesting positions, which in turn has helped me learn how my body works, and what I need to do to get me off.

4. Speaking of getting off…

It’s no surprise that clitoral is my go to orgasm. I have never had a problem achieving it, but I could never seem to get the full release I always used to hear about. Mentioning it to anyone I knew without stammering and turning red was a foreign thing to me. Since I’ve worked at the store, I have learned about the elusive g-spot orgasm, as well as having a few. I have also learned that I am a squirter and that the intense peeing sensation was just the lead up right before the big bang. I have learned what angles I need as well as the amounts of pressure and power I need. I always thought the clit was just there, but I have been able to find out which side works best for me, as well as learning more about my clitoral hood. As if the g-spot orgasms weren’t exciting enough, once you get into the anal orgasms….it’s a done deal. It’s pretty intense to have something in every orifice in your body and to climax from each one. Being able to talk openly about masturbation with friends and complete strangers, was my biggest obstacle, but I find without being able to do it, I wouldn’t have as rewarding of a job.

5. I am better at helping people than I realized.

One odd thing about me is the fact that I don’t like people (great for retail, right?), being around a big group, and I have really high anxiety with meeting new people. I have never been able to go up to a person and start a conversation, but at this job I am forced to. I have formed bonds with the most unlikely of people, and I know for a fact I have saved some marriages. Some of the questions customers ask me I have to take seriously. Although we do get a lot of people wanting to joke around and play when I get the serious ones, it’s rewarding to know that they are coming to me to help with an issue that can be life changing if solved. I am so glad I took the time to get used to the job rather than quitting. If anything this job has taught me to step out of my comfort zone in more ways than one, and it has made me a different person than I was 2 years ago.

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.

wpid-wp-1445110075503.jpg

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.

wpid-wp-1445569476881.jpg

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.

Womanizer: the Seducer

womanizer

What comes to mind when you hear Womanizer? If you said a Britney Spears song or thought of an ex-lover, then you obviously haven’t heard of the newest sex toy that’s gaining quite a following; for a good reason. When you first look at the Womanizer, it’s a trainwreck right in front of your eyes. It looks like a cross between an ear thermometer and a kazoo. It is plastered with fake animal print designs or encrusted with jewels if you really want to feel fancy. It has a gaudy fake rhinestone underneath the power button, which lets you power through 6 different intensity levels. It also comes with a heavy duty camera-like case, with two compartments for items like a cord (since it’s USB rechargeable),  lube, or a travel toy cleaner. Unfortunately appearance wise, the case has to take the cake as the most aesthetically appealing part of this entire fiasco.

wpid-wp-1443482751342.jpg

As much as I hate the design and lightness of the toy, they did hit a home run. When I heard about the “orgasm guarantee” of the Womanizer, I rolled my eyes and had flashbacks to the disaster that was the Afterglow. It’s obvious the person who designed this put a lot of time and thought into how to make this toy work. It has definitely done everything it says it will every time I used it, and design aside I would have no problem dropping the money on it.

wpid-wp-1443482606017.jpg

What makes the Womanizer so great you ask? Pretty much the fact that I was able to climax within at least 5 minutes the first time I used it. After I charged the Womanizer I was ready to roll. I added some Sassy to the outer part of the silicone head to help with the suction. I will admit that using a lubricant with this toy makes a world of difference, but make sure it’s a water-based since the silicone head will  deteriorate if you use an oil based lubricant.

wpid-wp-1443482575793.jpg

I used the toy for the first time in the dark, so as much as I hated the red light on it before, I found that it came in handy with trying to find the right placement on my clit. It’s one of those toys where you will have to get the perfect placement in order for it to work, or you will have a very bad time. Once it was on I put it on the lowest setting. I was immediately hit with cool air blowing at my clit. It felt weird, but I pushed through. It wasn’t long after using it that I noticed the suction coming at me, along with the barely noticeable vibrations. Being a lover of the Doxy and Rechargeable Hitachi, I was surprised how easily it was to get the build up. Between the two different sensations, I have to say it felt fucking amazing. I had a couple of times that the toy slid on me because I didn’t have a tight grip on it, since it was so lightweight, but it didn’t throw me off and kill my vibe when I got back on track.

wpid-wp-1443482586134.jpg

It literally took me about 5 minutes to reach an orgasm. It was a lot better than most clitoral orgasms I have had, and I was super sensitive once I came. I took me a couple of minutes to get past the sensitivity before I was back at it again. This time, it took me about 30 seconds to reach a second orgasm, with very little work. I have seriously never been able to have multiple orgasms so quickly in my entire life. After the second orgasm, I was convinced this toy would go places.

WeVibe Tango-The Clitoral Powerhouse

This tiny vibe has all the power you need!

WeVibe Tango

Like most women, I find clitoral orgasms easy to achieve. I am always looking for the newest vibe to test. I recently came across the WeVIbe Tango and I had to have it. The WeVibe Tango is one of the most powerful bullets I have tried, and the rumble vibrations add a deeper, more intense vibration than any other bullets I’ve used. I have found with the rumble vibrations it gets deeper into the clitoral tissue, thus giving me an entirely new orgasm. The Tango comes in two colors: blue and pink. It is magnetically rechargeable, so you can ditch the batteries. The benefit to the magnetic charging is that it makes this toy completely submersible, so shower and bath will be forever changed. The Tango has a nice lip on it, which I find makes it easier to use during intercourse without getting in the way. The lip also sits flat on the clit, which gives it the perfect amount of even stimulation, but the tip of the Tango can offer more pinpoint stimulation. The Tango is also easy to use, with one button, you are able to scroll through 8 different vibration patterns as shown below:

tango-vibration-modes-1200

The Tango can last 2 hours on a single 90-minute charge. It also has a low battery indication light at the bottom, so rest assured that you will never have an orgasm interrupted by a dead vibe; a truly frustrating thing. The Tango also comes with a one-year warranty through WeVibe. If you’re looking for a powerful bullet to get the job done, I definitely recommend the Tango.
