Tracey Cox Supersex RabbitMy clit has become somewhat of a snob since I started reviewing. It’s become accustomed to deep, rumbling vibrations and strength. Sadly, with the quality there comes a price, which is usually too-high for someone not as invested in sex toys as I am.

So I’ve been trying to find toys to review that are quality, and still affordable.

I wasn’t sure how the Tracey Cox Supersex rabbit would stack up. With my finicky, snobbish clit, surely it was destined to be a failure?

I’m pleasantly surprised. Continue reading »

The OhMiBod Lovelife Adventure is a three-pronged vibrator, designed to provide anal, clitoral, and vaginal stimulation all at the same time. A rabbit vibe on steroids. Ever wanted your butthole included in the vibe action? The Adventure lets you live that dream.

OhMiBod Lovelife Adventure

The packaging the Adventure comes in is painfully cute and I’m a fan. It’s sturdy and I’ve commandeered the box for other purposes, because the pattern is cute. If you’re not a fan of pink, chances are you’re not going to like it because it’s smothered in it. All of it. Outer package, inner box, the vibrator itself. Super pink. I have pink hair so this doesn’t bother me, it’s a bright happy paradise. OhMiBod have also been kind enough to label the USB cord, which I appreciate immensely.

For an artist, my diagram skills are lacking.

The Adventure, like any dual stimulator vibe, is dependent on your anatomy. The Adventure’s body is completely rigid. There’s no flexibility whatsoever, you can’t manipulate it to fit better. As soon as I pulled it out of its disgustingly cute packaging, I knew it wasn’t going to fit me. When inserted the anal arm works, but it’s too short to reach my clit, and vibrates between my urethra and clitoral glans.  Continue reading »

L'Amourose Rosa Rouge heated vibratorI’d heard about the Rosa Rouge, I desperately wanted to get my hands on it, so when L’Amourose gave me that opportunity I grabbed it without a second thought. I had been reeled in by the hype around it.

Rumbly vibrations? Check. Waterproof? Check. Rechargeable? Safe materials? Quality? Check, check and check. Heated? What, yeah ok, check.

But my first impression wasn’t that of immediate awe.

The packaging is nice. Non-functional once you’ve opened it, but damn its fancy. I like that. I like the luxurious feel that comes with nice packaging.

My Rosa Rouge came somewhat charged, enough to turn it on and feel it. So I did, and was kind of underwhelmed. I’d heard all these wonderful things about how rumbly Rosa was and… I didn’t get it. Yeah, it was rumbly, but I wasn’t wowed. I told my mind to shut up, pushed back the minor waves of disappointment that wanted to flow in, and decided to charge it, thinking maybe a full charge would change my initial first impression.

Then it wouldn’t charge. The plug wouldn’t go all the way into the charging stand (it still doesn’t) which confused and annoyed me. Why wouldn’t it go in all the way? It should, right? If it doesn’t it won’t stay in if it gets bumped???

Then, to throw salt in the wound, the plug wouldn’t fit in some of our power sockets. In my power board it wouldn’t go in. In the wall sockets, the shape of the adapter would prevent the switch being turned on, or push it half off if I turned it on before plugging. What the hell.

In the sockets it did fit, not matter how I sat it, it wouldn’t charge.

I was getting pretty sour and mildly concerned at this point. I’d just gotten it, I’d been waiting months for it to arrive at Passionfruit, I didn’t want it to be dodgy.

Eventually I found that it will charge on the power board that’s in our lounge room. Currently, the only places I can plug it in to charge is one of two specifics power boards. This is partially because of the plug. It’s a universal one that can be switched depending on the location. The plug itself is square and doesn’t sit high enough, so it doesn’t fit a lot of our power sockets. I get that it’s easier to just have it switchable so it works in different countries, but it doesn’t work well with Australian power sockets. I even asked my fellow Aussie reviewer who got her Rosa Rouge the same day, because I was starting to freak out, she confirmed that it doesn’t work well. So it’s not just me.

Once I finally got to actually use it, I kinda started to get the hype. Kind of. Almost. Maybe. Continue reading »

The PicoBong Transflower

When I first received the email about the PicoBong Tranformers impending release I was immediately reminded of a bendy pencil.

Like a bendy pencil, the Transformer is for everyone. There’s no ‘this is for MEN‘ or ‘women LOVE the transformer because it’s SO FEMININE like a cupcake with PINK icing and GLITTER BALLS‘. Honestly I’m still a bit confused as to what Lelo (PicoBongs mother company) is trying to accomplish. First they release the Transformer, designed and marketed as a gender-neutral toy, but then Lelo releases the Pino cock ring that’s “specifically for super manly men bankers who drink so much they can’t keep it up without an overpriced cock-ring” (that’s my interpretation at least).

The Transformer unlike the rest of the PicoBong family is rechargeable, and then Lelo releases a battery-operated toy? Ahhh Lelo I don’t understand you at all.

Alas, I am not here to ponder the wonders that are the Lelo marketing choices. I am here to review a bendy pencil. I mean, sex toy.

The PicoBong Transformer is, in reality, more like a bike-lock. It’s a long thick cord with two vibrators on either end. It’s made from body-safe silicone, is completely waterproof, and USB rechargeable. Water-based lube is recommended and it can be cleaned or sterilized the same as any other silicone vibrator. It comes in three colours; black, pink and yellow. The packaging for the Transformer is simple and suitable for storage if you don’t care too much about discretion as there is a see-through window on the front.

The Transformers main selling point is its flexibility, claiming to be millions of sex toys in one. The cord is thicker than I imagined, very similar to the size of a bike-lock but stiffer. You’re supposed to be able to shape the Transformer however you like and go to town. There’s a few issues I find come along with this in use. Continue reading »
