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

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.

The Letdown: Lelo Lyla 2

wpid-img_20150726_155457.jpg

Wireless eggs are not something I have had good luck with in the past. It always seems hard to find the right intensity for vibrations, and a good connection with the remotes. I have tried the California Exotic Novelties Posh 7-function Lover’s Remote, which was a bust (never again with the watch batteries), and the Sensuelle Remote Control Rechargeable Pink (close, but still not good enough). It seems like the hardest thing to find is a long-lasting, good quality, wireless egg. I thought I stumbled upon that with the Lelo Lyla 2, but I was, unfortunately, let way, way down.


The packaging of the Lyla 2 is very sleek and sexy. I would definitely hav
e to give major props to the design. It looks exactly how a luxury item should. Inside the box is a storage pouch (Yay!), the remote, egg, batteries, their registration card, (did I mention the one year warranty, 10 year guarantee? Wow!), the exhausting manual, charger, and the Lelo pin, so you can let everyone you know know that you own a fancy Lelo toy.


I will start by saying that the shape of the Lyla 2 is spot on. It fit my vagina like a glove and stayed put. I never had an issue with the way the egg sat, in fact, I would have to say this is the most ergonomic egg I’ve used. The shape was very well thought out. The material was the high-quality medical grade silicone that I am used to from my Lelo products, which is body safe, and easy to clean. It had one button interface, which you do a quick press to turn on, and a long press to turn off. The remote control is also encased with silicone on the front, with three buttons, high, low, and functions, (which I will get into later) and a hard plastic on the back with a slot to unlock. 

wpid-img_20150726_184435.jpg


The remote is another problem I have with this toy, albeit small. I’m just spoiled I guess, but I would expect a toy that is $140.00, wouldn’t require any kind of batteries, even in a remote. It takes two AAA’s, which comes provided with the toy, so I guess I can’t complain too much, considering “batteries included” is becoming such a luxury these days.  The egg, however, charges by unscrewing the bottom of the egg where the retrieval cord is, and plugging it in. Thankfully being a second generation, the Lyla 2 has a chrome charging socket, so submersible play is encouraged.

wpid-img_20150726_190257.jpg

The Lyla 2 also comes with Lelo’s newest feature called SenseMotion technology.
The whole concept behind the SenseMotion technology is to make the egg vibrate with whatever pattern you move the remote. This toy comes with two SenseMotion modes. The first one intensifies vibrations by tilting the remote when it is moved from a horizontal to vertical position, and the second mode lets you change the vibration intensity by moving it either way. The faster you move it, the more intense the vibrations. Pretty cool concept, if it worked.

The main problem I had with both of the SenseMotion modes was a lag from the remote to the egg. I noticed it seemed to take a couple of seconds for the egg to move with the same pattern every time I moved the remote unless it was directly pointed at my vag. Another issue was the connection. There were some times when I didn’t even think that the remote and egg were matched up. I had to take it out a couple of times to make sure that it was working. I do have to say, that the regular vibration patterns seemed to work pretty well. I think the SenseMotion is too many bells and whistles, and I would honestly prefer to do without. The manual describes the modes as well, but I’m not really up for reading manuals when I’m ready to get off. If you have the time to read the manual it would help, but I would just stick with the premade vibration patterns. Thankfully there is also a non-remote mode where you can just stick the egg inside and go. Personally, that was enough for me.

Which brings me to the vibrations. I have to say that I was a little less impressed with the vibrations as well. They weren’t as powerful as most of the Lelo toys, in my opinion. It almost felt like there were times when it completely stopped vibrating, which is a pretty big deal. I felt the most intense sensation while I was sitting down, or crouched over, but while I was walking I didn’t even realize it was in. That was the main time where I had to put my hand down my pants and check, which, unfortunately, is acceptable when you’re home, but not so much in public.

Lelo definitely could have done better with this toy. The vibrations could be a little bit stronger, and the connectivity between the remote and the toy should be looked into. The shape was phenomenal, and the SenseMotion could potentially be one of the coolest features a toy could have, but if it doesn’t work, there’s really no point. I would probably use this while I was having anal, to have something inside for stimulation, but as for a “couple’s toy”, I would think twice before a night out on the town with it. At least the manual makes for a good table leveler.

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.
