UltraZone EternalWhen I was contacted by TopCo Toyz to review for them, I went onto their site to have a peek at what they sell. Somehow, among eight million jelly toys, I managed to find a couple of silicone products that caught my eye.

The UltraZone Eternal is a sweet little thing. I saw the shape and could imagine it sliding between my labia, fitting perfectly where I wanted it too. Also one of it colour options is blue. I have a hard time ignoring blue toys.

It’s just as cute in real life. It’s small, but the rather bulbous head looks great, I love the little ridges that are over the silicone portion of the toy. It’s easy to operate as there’s only one button, and it’s rechargeable so I don’t have to worry about finding batteries.

Which is where the first hiccup in this cute parade arises. Continue reading »

Lovehoney Silencer USB BulletI try to be on the lookout for vibrators that sound alright, are relatively inexpensive and easy to find. I’ll always recommend saving to buy something higher quality, but I also realize that’s not an option for everyone.

Lovehoney were wonderful enough to send me their own-brand USB Silencer Bullet. The shape is very similar to a few other clitoral vibes out there, dainty and streamlined, while boasting a very easy charging system. Under the cap there is a USB plug; simply twist and remove the shorter cap, then plug it in wherever you want. Laptop, outlet charger with a USB port, if you’ve got one in your car you could even do it there. There’s no charging cable to lose, or get tangled, but I am mildly worried I will manage to lose the cap.

When in use it’s fairly damn quiet, and I find my duvet muffles the light sound almost completely. If not for the Lovehoney logo, and maybe even despite it, it’s still a very discreet toy.

But are the vibrations any good? Continue reading »

The BodiSpa ‘The Almighty’ Hot-Cold Wand looked very promising. Wands are supposed to be powerful. Temperature play is fun and can completely change the sensations. Sadly, the BodiSpa Hot-Cold wand let me and my vulva down.

BodiSpa The Almighty Hot-Cold Wand

There’s two vibration speeds. Both are pretty average. Like, they’re there, they feel good, but they’re not direct enough to ever get me off. I get bored with it. I hold it to my vulva and get bored. I want a snack and maybe to watch some funny videos on YouTube.

My body just does not give a crap what The Almighty has to say. The vibrations do not speak my clits language. My clit is a refined French lady drinking expensive French champagne and being fed chocolate covered fruit, and the BodiSpa Wand is speaking pig-Latin with the words in the wrong order.

The Lelo Siri has always appealed to me. It looks dainty and cute, like a pet rock you’re very fond of. I’d never had the chance to try one, and from the reviews I’ve read, most people were looking forward to a Siri 2 because of much-needed updates. Lo and behold, there has been an update and I have one.

I’ve had my Lelo Siri 2 for several weeks now. It’s a toy that I wasn’t allowed to talk about, and therefore unable to review, so I’ve had more than enough time to use it leisurely without time constraints. Timelines don’t affect my clits opinion on things, but it does mean I have had the opportunity to choose to use it. I’ve had the chance to let my clit crave it, rather than having it forced upon it because I need to write. And the Lelo Siri 2 is a toy I do crave.

The Siri 2 fits nicely in my palm, it has Lelo’s gloriously smooth, not-very-linty silicone and is finally, thankfully, waterproof.  Continue reading »

The general consensus is that the Lelo Mona 2 is one of the best vibrators out there. A lot of bloggers will choose the Mona 2 when faced with the question of which toy they’d bring with them if they were to be stranded on an island. It can be used internally or externally, giving you the option to figure out what you like the most. It seems that most people enjoy using it more externally than internally, and I can’t argue. The Mona 2 has a nice penetrating rumble to it on the lower speeds, which get buzzier as they increase, but still have enough depth to them not to numb.

It’s not the most powerful vibrator out there, it’s not a Doxy wand, but it packs a good punch, that should be more than enough to bring your average user to orgasm.

Before I had money to spend on expensive vibes, before I cared about what type of vibration I’d get, I lusted over the Lelo Gigi. I thought it looked better. I thought the Mona was ugly, I didn’t like the shape. But then I read a bunch of reviews, really positive reviews, and decided I’d buy the Mona instead of the Gigi. Apparently it was stronger, and if I was going to spend so much money on a single vibrator, I wanted my moneys worth of power.

The one time I saw it in store, in its glass cabinet with the other luxury toys, it looked smaller than I expected, and I was a little disappointed that this was the great vibe I’d heard all about. It gave me a very “…That’s it????” sort of reaction. I still had my mind set on it though; I’m stubborn. It’s like an optical illusion. It seems kinda small, until you have it in hand and then it’s like, “Oh wait, it’s not too bad“. Mona’s max circumference sits at about 4.5” and insertable length is about the same. I find most toys are like this. You read the sizing details, measure it with a tape to imagine what you’re going to get, and it still looks smaller when you actually get it. The Mona just looks bigger, rather than smaller.

Mona and I have a somewhat turbulent relationship. Before Mona, I’d only ever had cheap clit vibes, with the exception of a $70 mini bodywand that I now never use. My tastes have matured. My first reaction on the Mona was that I adored the rumble on its lower speeds. I still do. Holding it against my vulva I can feel it radiate through me and it’s glorious. I was immediately converted, finally understanding what everyone meant when they described a vibrator as ‘rumbly’.

If you’ve never felt a higher end vibrator and still don’t understand ‘rumbly’, the difference is a lot like cheap earplugs (the music ones not the ear protection ones) that you get for $10 at any store and those expensive headphones that cost a kidney. Continue reading »

I had no idea what to expect with the Doxy. I’ve never had a mains-powered vibe. The legendary Hitachi Magic Wand isn’t part of my arsenal, being Australian, we technically don’t have the Hitachi, we have the Medisil Magic Touch. I don’t think most people realize this, and it’s not the easiest to find anyway. You can get one at Black Label though, FYI.

Us Aussies actually miss out on quite a few toys. It’s not always as easy as getting a basic plug adapter, because of the difference in voltage, sometimes you need a converter (which I learnt after buying a hair-straightener when I went to the US and couldn’t use it at home. I still hold on to it, I’m a hoarder). So generally it’s a pain in the ass and we miss out on fun toys, like the Magic Wand, Eroscillator and until now, the Doxy.

I knew there would be power, more than what I’m used to. I’ve read reviews, the opinions seem pretty split, some love it and some not so much. But when I was offered one to review from Lovehoney, there was no way I could let the opportunity slip through my fingers.

I’m still learning what works best for me with vibrations. I know both weak and buzzy aren’t my jam. The Mona 2‘s mid-level buzzy/rumble can do it for me, but I prefer it internally. I also know my clit can be outrageously sensitive and temperamental. I didn’t know how well the Doxy would work with my body, but I figured if it didn’t work on my vag, it’d make a damn good back massager (something I do have experience with). Continue reading »
