Tantus Cush O2 Review

dscn3598

I can’t believe that I’ve reviewed so many toys since Wetlandia was created, and yet, I’ve only written about about 5 dildos, out of which one was a feeldoe, and another — a dildo with a handle. So let me present to you one more good ol’ dildo: the Cush O2 by Tantus.

 

While in many ways Cush O2 is just a dildo: it’s harness-compatible, it doesn’t have a hole for a bullet vibe, it doesn’t have a suction cup, at the same time Cush O2 is so much more. There’s nothing simple or predictable about it. First of all, it’s made of the dual density Tantus silicone, which makes it squishier and softer, more realistic and less harsh to the body and the vaginal or anal walls. It has a little bit of a texture to it, a pronounced coronal ridge and a few grooves further down the shaft. Let me be clear from the very start. This is a monster of a dildo. It’s 7″ long and has is 1.75″ in diameter. Please, get a ruler and check these dimensions before ordering. Also, maybe sleep on it? Many people have bigger eyes than vaginas or asses. Which is to say that you might think you want a dildo this big, but it might not be the case. If you are unsure whether you can handle 1.75″, I’d recommend the Flurry O2, which is similar to the Cush, but is only 1.5″ thick.

The material

The Cush O2 is made of a matte dual density Tantus silicone. Tantus products are known for their super high-quality materials and production standards. Unlike Alan O2, which was a very realistic dildo that felt a little tacky, because it didn’t have the matte finish the Cush has, Cush O2 is very velvety. The colors of this beauty are just gorgeous. Pastel pink, violet or blue, with different shades and hints. While this dildo is super girthy and has just a little bendiness to it, it’s squishy and its girth doesn’t feel as excessive. But keep in mind that if you are looking for a super real-life and squishy silicone, you might need to check out the VixSkin silicone, by Vixen Creations.

Another thing to never forget is that the silicone of Cush need a loooot of lubrication. Get yourself a big bottle of water-based or hybrid lube and don’t be shy to reapply as much lube as needed. If you plan on using it anally, I’d strongly recommend using a lube-shooter and lubing up your ass thoroughly before inserting this toy.

The shape

Tantus Cush O2 DildoAs I mentioned, the Cush O2 is an impressive dick. It doesn’t have a g-spot curve, but its ridges and girth stimulate the g-spot really well. Its 7″ allow you to have a good hold of it and have enough length to be able to comfortably hold the dildo in your hands and thrust in and out. What I like about the Cush is the shape of the head, and its softness, which is very gentle to my cervix (unlike other long dildos or vibes) and never causes ouch-y sensations.

If you want to used the Cush for strap-on sex, you will need a bigger O-ring. I couldn’t really use it with the stretchy O-ring of the Joque Harness, because I didn’t want to force the harness to hard and maybe rip it, and it doesn’t look like other SpareParts harnesses are compatible with it either. Keep in mind that while the material of the dildo is softer, the ridges can feel too harsh if you go at it right away, so I’d warm up with another dildo and go slow. Otherwise it might scratch the vaginal walls or the rectum too much, if you’re fucking too hard with it with no preparation.

How does it feel

Cush O2 has received stellar reviews from many other sex bloggers. If never ceases to amuse and excite my g-spot. It might not be my everyday dildo I can pop inside of me right away, it does need warm up with a smaller toy, but when I do work my way up to using it, it’s always spectacular. I love squeezing it with my vaginal walls while using a clitoral vibe.

While I haven’t used it anally, since I can’t quite accommodate its size in there, its squishiness probably makes the girth feel much less intense and much more pleasant. If you dislike textured anal toys, you might want to avoid the Cush though.

Another thing I have to say about the Cush is that it will be a great warm up for fisting, because of its size.

Things to consider

I’ve read a couple of reviews saying that the ridges of the dildo ended up right at the vaginal opening, so using the toy was actually painful. If you know that you are sensitive to texture, or if you know you have a more shallow vagina and can’t take in a great amount of length, you should probably just pick another Tantus O2 dildo.

In conclusion

Cush O2 isn’t a legendary dildo for no reason. It’s a jolly big ol’ semi-realistic cock that has enough firmness to stimulate the g-spot, but not too much to feel unpleasant. I am a sworn fan of the Tantus dual density O2 silicone line and the Cush only confirmed that. But if you have any doubts that you can take a dildo of its dimensions, I’d always start with its smaller sibling, the Flurry O2.

You can get it from Tantus, Shevibe or Peepshowtoys

Fun Factory Share Review

Updated on 12/13/16.

dscn3042

Fun Factory Share is something that would make most people think “What on earth?!”. If you are not familiar with feeldoes, strapless strap-ons or double ended dildos that are meant to rest behind the pubic bone, the shape of the Share will seem like something out of this world. You are probably going to wonder what goes where and how it could even work. Let me assure you, it works perfectly.

The Fun Factory Share is a double ended dildo meant for strap-on sex for queer couples or moresomes, lesbian couples and hetero pairs who are advanced in pegging. The Share works if at least one of the people involved has a vagina, since the big bulbous end goes inside of it and rests comfortably against the g-spot, while the part that looks like a dick, can be used for penetration.

And I can tell you folks, to quote Tina Horn, it’s the best gender fuckery ever. Let me unpack this, because my queerness goes a long way back, so does my history with the Share. See, I’ve been aware of my bisexuality and queerness since I was roughly 15-years old. I’ve always been attracted to women and I’ve always loved girl sex. Yet, as I already mentioned in my SpareParts Joque harness review, I’ve never been particularly interested in using toys and especially phallic shaped ones in my girl time. For some reason sleeping with babes use to be about everything else that we can do together. It was about being as different as possible from hetero sex. It was about eating pussy and ferocious finger fucking. It was about sensation play and enjoying our bodies. It was not about dicks at all. In fact, I couldn’t imagine having a “dick” anywhere in the picture.

Then years later, after realizing that hetero sex doesn’t have to be hetero-normative at all, I diversified my lesbian sex too, added more toys, and finally came around using dildos and penetration. Again, double ended dildos did not strike me as an option right away. To me holding a dildo often does a much better job, it gives me better control of wielding the toy, I can be closer to my partner’s vulva and I can enjoy that front row seat. But it also ultimately helps me give them probably more pleasure, because my hands are better trained at this job than my hips. Especially given that I don’t actually own a cock.

Fun Factory ShareThen I went to The Sexual Health Expo in NY this September and the awesome Tina Horn pointed out that the Share was her favorite toy, because it allows the pressure and the impact from the thrusts to travel through both bodies. It essentially allows a vulva-owner who’s topping with it to feel extreme pleasure while fucking someone. Isn’t this a mind fuck? Fucking someone with a dick (when you don’t have one), getting to enjoy the view and all that power and responsibility of topping someone while simultaneously experiencing the feeling of being fucked. Okay, this sounded really fun from Tina’s mouth. And I could definitely trust Tina when it came to queer hanky-panky.

Then just two weeks after SHE, I went to another awesome sex event. This time the road took me to Atlanta and the second edition of the rad conference Sex Down South and the amazing Strap-on Sex class taught by Andre Shakti. The praise and love for the Share was… shared by Andre as well. Okay, two queer babes, both sex educators and performers, were talking up the Share, so maybe the sex god(esse)s were trying to tell me to get one finally. And after all, if it disappointed me as a couples toy, I could always use it for masturbation, as Shakti pointed out (but we’ll get to this a little further down).

Fun Factory Share

If you’ve already had any sort of strap-on sex with a regular dildo, you know that as fun as strap-on sex is, there isn’t much pleasure and actual physical stimulation for the topping party. Instead there are bruised pubic mounds from the base of the dildo pounding against your mons, while you’re thrusting in and out. These are both issues completely resolved by double ended dildos like the Share. It even provides a pleasant clitoral stimulation thanks to the mound in between the external phallus part and the bulb.

Another thing about strap-on sex and topping is… well, it’s fucking hard. I give penis-owners that. Thrusting and shooting from the hip is harder than it looks. So after a couple of strap-on experiences with a regular dildo, I was like… “Fuck that, if I am going to work this hard, I need more gratification from it.”

So the decision’s been made, I needed a Share in my life…

Fun Factory ShareThe Share is entirely silicone and  comes in several colors: Baby Rose, Purple, Black and Vanilla. What I didn’t anticipate was a couple of things. First, how heavy this thing was. I mean, it’s freaking H-E-A-V-Y. Which was a bit of a let down, given that I kind of wanted to use it without a strap on, and enjoy the view of having a purple penis between my legs. Second, the hinge was suuuper flexible. Which meant that with the weight of the external part of the dildo, it was dangling between my legs, instead of being and perky and facing up, like a proud erect cock. Okay, none of these were a deal breaker. After all, it’s mighty difficult and distracting to keep the thing in without a strap-on, mainly because of its weight, but also because of lube. See, the internal bulb is really big. Which means that I always use lube to pop it in. Which, as you can guess, makes the thing slip right out of my vagina. No biggie, I decided to just use a harness with it. Joque is one of the few harnesses that actually works with double ended dildos. Most conventional harnesses have a piece of leather or fabric that cannot be removed and only allow for regular dildos to be used with them. Luckily all Spareparts harnesses can accommodate double ended dildos, do if the Joque is not sexy enough for you, you can opt in for lingerie harnesses like Bella or Sasha instead.

Okay, this was a whole new story. With the strap-on it did look like the perfectly erect, g-spot curved, delicious dildo that I had signed up for. Now we were talking.

This dildo made me come faster and harder than the lady I was fucking with it. Securely snuggled in place by my Joque harness, this time its weight played a wonderful role. It transmitted every push, every thrust, every movement, and pressed against my g-spot. The amount of pressure and the feeling of being so full were just out of this world. It’s also so fun to have someone give the dildo a hand job or suck on it, since that was all transmitted in the form of a wonderful movement inside of me, which provided me with blissful stimulation. Not as much as using it for penetration did, but close enough.

A few weeks later I was lucky to experience bottoming with the Share. And, oh dear Lord, I can’t tell you how perfect this g-spot curve is. The coronal ridge of the phallus is simply one of the best shaped things I’ve had in my vagina. Being on the receiving end of this toy made me have an even greater appreciation for it. I almost squirted all over the place, but because we didn’t have any Liberator Throe, I asked my girl to slow down a bit.

Positions

Fun Factory ShareAs I already mentioned, using it with a strap-on allows you to use the Fun Factory Share in every imaginable position. But if you are ambitious and want to use it as a strapless strap-on, my recommendations would be the following. Make gravity work for you. If the partner topping is standing on their feed, or pretty much in any upright position, such as doggy style or missionary, this is probably going to fail you a great deal, because gravity is working against you. Instead, be a pillow queen for a change and lie on your back. Have the bottom go on top of you. Cowgirl is about one of the positions that works best with the strapless Share. Or sit on a chair and have them ride you.

Because of how extremely pleasurable the g-spot curve is, I would always recommend positions that have the curve facing the front wall of the vagina of the receiver (in the case of two vulva-owners using it). Anything that has you face each other would work: missionary, cowgirl, at the edge of the bed on your back with legs on their shoulders, while the top is standing upright next to the bed.

The Share and Solo Sex

Don’t be fooled that this double ended dildo is just a toy for couple play only. In fact its shape works perfectly as a solo toy. Masturbating with it can be quite fun, especially if you are a size queen or a g-spot stim maniac. What the Share does is turn into a dildo with a handle. You would put the bulbous part inside of you and masturbate by jerking off the cock. I mean, isn’t that even more of a gender fuckery?

Share in Different Sizes

Fun Factory Share, Share XL and Share Petite

While the Share is a great dildo, it’s still an average in size. Luckily there’s more that Fun Factory can offer. The Share XL is more girthy and has a lovely texture to it, if you are into that. The difference in size is not that huge, compared to the regular Share, but the grooves and ridges provide much more intense sensation. Some people hate texture, because it can chafe and be painful if you have more sensitive vaginal walls (or rectum). So it really depends on your own preferences, but unless you are sure about the extra ridges, I would stick to the regular Share. And there’s the Fun Factory Share Petite which has a tiny phallus for the receiver, making it perfect for beginner peggers or for people with vaginismus or ones that only want to take something as big as a finger. If you want to throw some vibration into the mix, there’s the ShareVibe by Fun Factory, which has a slightly different shape. Both the internal bulb is a bit different, but also the cock doesn’t have any coronal ridge. In other words there’s no head of the penis, which is better for pegging and anal play, but will provide less g-spot stimulation for vaginal play. I haven’t used the ShareVibe, but I’ve held it in stores and the hinge is much less flexible than the one on the Share dildo, so at least they’ve addressed that issue.

The Share and Pegging

As I already mentioned in the previous paragraph, if you are new to pegging, you should absolutely start with the Share Petite. The anal sphincters are much tighter and will provide more resistance, so I would definitely use any of the Shares with a strap-on, if I were to use it for pegging.

A Few Things to Consider

dscn3087There are a few things to keep in mind before committing to buying the Share. One is that it needs a lot of lube, especially on the part of the dildo that looks like a penis, if you are going to use it without a condom. The Fun Factory silicone is kind of known for having a lot of drag to it. Another thing is that you might need a lot of warm-up to be able to take the bulb, if you are topping with it. It’s kind of big and it’s not the kind of thing I will pop into my vagina without working my way to it. The entire toy is made of silicone, so it can be boiled and there isn’t anything that makes using it with a condom mandatory, since silicone is non-porous. But if you are in a setting where you can’t properly sanitize a dildo and you might want to share it with a partner you are not fluid bonded with, you will need to cover it with a condom. And here’s the challenge. The base of the Share gets wider, so a condom just doesn’t stay put on the cock. But I found that if I tuck the condom under the stretchy O-ring of my SpareParts harness, it does stay in place. And I’ve mentioned this before, but it cannot emphasize this enough – the hinge is really flexible, so without the harness, the dong is going to dangle between your legs.

In a nutshell

Even with these few things to keep in mind, I still think that the Fun Factory Share is one of the best double ended dildos on the market and I absolutely love using it for girl sex and sometimes even for masturbation.

TRUSKYN Tru Feel Dildo Review

If you’ve ever used a dildo or any sex toy, one issue that comes up time and time again is firmness. Often silicone sex toys are extremely firm and feel too hard and plastic-y. Not that a dildo should necessarily feel like a penis — sometimes different materials such as glass or steel can feel amazing and bring new sensations. But still — a lot of vulva-owners really dig the squishy softness that humans have to their flesh. Super firm dildos can be really chafing, not to mention downright painful. This is why the adult industry has been trying to sell us a bunch or “real-feel” toys, most of which made of really questionable materials. Most of the time if a sex toy is super soft and realistic, this means that it’s simply made of some soft of termoplastic elastomer and is porous, ergo not entirely body-safe. Many brands come up with their own materials and call them cyberskin, or c-flex, silla-gel or whatever on earth name they chose for their poisons. They aim to confuse the consumer and avoid the actual question: “What is it made of?”. This is why raised my eyebrows the first time I saw “TRUSKYN” by Doc Johnson. I’ve already reviewed one item from the line, a penis stroker, and I’ve had my inner doubts whether Doc wasn’t pulling our leg again. But indeed, their TRUSKYN line is made by a dual density silicone.

Which is fantastic news, since this thing is so ridiculously squishy and pleasant! I’ve tried dual density silicone formulas before — by Tantus and by Vixen, and this is by far the softest and the squishiest toy I’ve tried. At the same time, if you are freaked out by realism, most of their dildo models are in fact non-realistic. This is why I chose to review the Tru Feel, it looked funky and different.

Packaging

The Tru Feel Dildo arrives in a tasteful box, and contains a storage bag and a lube. I threw away the latter instantaneously, because it contains propylene glycol. The dildo also comes with a little package of powder. Because of the softer density of the silicone on the outside, after you wash it, it can feel a little tacky. So they recommend that you powder it up, to get back that skin-like finish. I wouldn’t use the powder for anything in the world, since it’s kind of difficult to wash off, and I don’t want any of that sh*t going into my vagina. Yes, without the powder, the dildo won’t feel as velvety to the touch, but you are going to use it, right, not squeeze it as a stress ball, and the tackiness of the material isn’t anything you’re going to feel when you actually use it. In any case you will need to wash off the powder before using the dildo, so unless you are going to hold in your hands the dildo in-between uses, I don’t see any point in using the powder.

Specifications

The Tru Feel Dildo comes in black or blue. It’s a medium to small size dildo of total length of 6.5″, out of which 5.5″ are insertable and it’s 1.5″ wide (in diameter). It has small balls, which, like the dildo, are non-realistic. It doesn’t have a suction cup, but it is harness-compatible and anal-safe. It has s texture to it, enough to make you feel something upon insertion, but not too much to actually be painful or unpleasant.

How does it feel?

TRUSKYN Tru Feel Dildo

Because of its size and how squishy the silicone is I find the Tru Feel dildo a great choice for warm-up or for people who don’t like girthy or super long toys. It’s a fantastic choice for a first dildo, or for someone who only has firm dildos and wants to try something softer. The bendiness and pliability of the material also makes it superb for strap on sex, especially if you are new to it. Firstly, the base of the dildo is also soft, so it’s not going to uncomfortably press against and bruise the pubic mound of the person wearing it, and secondly, if you are not really good at aiming and don’t have a whole lot of experience with using a strap-on on someone, this dildo is not going to hurt them an unpleasant way while pounding. It’s also really enjoyable for anal sex experience: both for pegging or for anal play. It’s almost a butt-plug-like, since it gets narrow at the base.

Video

Check out this video to get a better idea of how squishy and flexible this dildo is.

In a nutshell

This is a fabulous dildo for anyone who likes dildos on the smaller side, or who prefers really soft, squishy and flexible toys. It’s great for both vaginal and anal sex, solo or partnered use, handheld or with a strap-on. It’s the most realistic (in feel) silicone toy for this price. Unless you are looking for something with a prominent g-spot curve, I would say the Tru Feel Dildo is a great choice. If you want something slightly curved and more girthy, you should check out the Tru Curve instead. The Tru Feel dildo sells for $44 and as much as I love Tantus dildos, they’re much firmer and maybe not a really good choice for everybody.

Gift-Giving Guide: What to Get Your Partner if They Have a Penis?

Gift-Giving Guide Penis Toys

In the few days leading up to one of America’s biggest holidays: Black Friday, the phenomenon that draws everybody to their electronics right after they’re done with (or sometimes while) overeating turkey and candied yams, I am going to release a couple of gift-giving guides for everybody. There are in fact some amazing sex toy sales coming our way. And sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. Other times, we can get tricked into buying cheap and useless crap, especially if the particular sex toy shop we’re purchasing from is selling porous toys as well. Often jelly, rubber, TPR and TPE toys can be purchased literally for a couple of bucks, but I will try to give you a few body-safe suggestions regardless of your budget. A lot of these you will be able to purchase with huge discounts, so stay tuned and refresh my BLACK FRIDAY SALES PAGE often in the next few days.

This particular guide is going to feature toys you can buy for your partner, if they have a penis. I currently don’t have a whole lot penis or prostate toy reviews, so I wanted to make things right. If you have a partner who has a vulva, you might wanna check out vol 2 of this guide: Gift-Giving Guide: What to Get Your Partner if They Have a Vulva?

Each category starts with the cheapest toys. Note that these are retail prices and don’t include any Black Friday discounts, or any of the discounts my coupon codes give you. Gift-Giving Guide Penis Toys

Note: Why am I using “penis” and “penis-owners” instead of men, guys, boyfriend or dudes. Because not all people who have penises identify as “male” and I want to focus on the equipment we have, instead of our gender identities. So yes, if you do happen to have a boyfriend or a husband, who’s cis-gender (their assigned sex at birth matches their gender identity: born with penis, identifies as “male”) that’s the right guide for you. If you have a trans pre-op girlfriend, a lot of these are going to work for you as well. I am also going to try make this guide as non-hetero normative as possible. Yes, dildos are not just for vaginas, they can go in butts too! (Even if you’re not gay!)

The mainstream media is often trying to convey that “porn is for guys and sex toys are for gals”. They brainwash us that the sex toy industry only caters to those with vulvas. That is not only completely false, but you will get surprised by how many choices there are when it comes to toys designed for penis-owners. Hell, some of the coolest new toys this year were ones that go on dicks! (Woot-woot Hot Octopuss!)

Strokers

The world of penis strokers, sleeves, or masturbators is immense. The shapes and the designs have evolved greatly too. Open-ended sleeves, or ones that look like a cup, taco-like strokers, vibrating or non-vibrating. Their price-range starts at less than $10 and goes all the way to around $150 for the most sophisticated ones. Don’t forget to always use lube with all of these!

1. Tenga Eggs for $6.99 from Shevibe. These are the best stocking fillers ever. They can be a fun prank, or a really good gateway drug into the world of penis strokers. They’re small, but extremely stretchy. They’re porous and are recommended for one use only. You can definitely squeeze a couple of uses out of each one, if you clean it thoroughly, but bear in mind that you’d better toss it away after a couple of play sessions. They come in a huge variety of textures and patterns on the inside, and each of them gives a slightly different sensation. You can cut off the top of the egg and turn it into an open-ended sleeve and combine stroking with it with a blow job on the head of the penis. They’re also a great travel-friend, since you can just toss them away after you’re done with them.
2. Tenga Cup for $9.99 from Shevibe. This is another disposable one-use only toy by Tenga. It’s much deeper and bigger, and comes with a suction for a much more realistic sensation. It comes in a hard case, which makes it completely unwashable and non-reusable once you ejaculate in it, but it’s another good novelty and perfect travel companion, if you don’t wanna travel with your more valuable and fragile toys.
3. Truskyn The Tru Stroke Beaded or Ribbed for $19 from Peepshowtoys. This is the cheapest silicone stroker you are going to find. I’ve just reviewed the Tru Stroke Beaded and I am so happy to report that there’s a decent, affordable silicone penis toy that even comes in two variations: beaded or ribbed. It’s open-ended and open-seam design allows it to accommodate penises of different sizes, and you can control the sensation just by adjusting your grip. A great toy to combine with blow jobs and teasing.
4. Vibrating masturbator by Rocks Off for $29.99 from Shevibe. This one is made of body-safe silicone and ABS plastic and comes with the RO-80mm Bullet vibrator. Which means you can take out the bullet and use it on other body parts. This one is a great deal for a battery-operated toy.
5. Fleshlight Quick Shot for $34.95 from Fleshlight. A short, open-ended and less aversive and misogynistic option from Fleshlight. This is also a good one to combine with oral sex.
6. Tenga 3D sleeves for $39.99 from Shevibe. These are simply a reusable and more sophisticated version of the Tenga 3D eggs.
7. Fleshlight Flight for $49.95 from Fleshlight. A full size stroker from Fleshlight, that doesn’t end with something that resembles female genitalia, mouth or an ass. And is a little cheaper than the “Fleshlight Girls“.
8. Rocks Off Rise Rechargeable for $69.99 from Peepshowtoys. This is the rechargeable multi-speed version of our #3. This one will give you hours of playtime on a single charge, and has a couple of vibration patters.
9. Tenga Flip Zero for $99.00 from Good Vibrations. One of the stars of the show, and without a doubt one of the most sophisticated strokers on the market. The internal part is extremely complex and provides rich sensations, one can control the grip and the tightness, as well as a suction mode. And it’s a breeze to clean, since it opens up and can even dry out standing on its own external case.

10. Hot Octopuss Pulse II Solo for $99 from Good Vibrations. If you want to splurge this toy has received some of the most rave reviews and has a really unique technology. It’s a vibrating masturbator that features penile vibrations and oscillations. It also look pretty damn cool.

Penis Toys and Male Toys

Cock Rings

Cock Rings are super fun to use. The choices are mind-blowing. Single or double, vibrating or non-vibrating, stretchy or not, silicone or metal. In the following round up I’ve only featured silicone cock rings, because they’re easier to use. Metal or wooded rings are for far more advanced users, because they’re completely stiff. Cock rings help you keep the blood in your penis and make your erection harder, longer lasting and bigger. Have you always wanted that veiny big cock that looks like it’s about to blow up? Cock rings are your solution. They can have only one strap and if they’re smaller, they can go only around the penis, while bigger single rings can be stretched around the balls and the cock at once. Always place these when the penis is still flaccid. Vibrating cock rings can be equally pleasurable for both parties. Stick to positions that allow you to have the vibrating bullet on the clitoris: cowgirl or missionary work great.Cock Rings

1. Tantus Super Soft C-Ring for $10.99 from Tantus. A super simple silicone ring that can be stretched around the penis and the balls. Beginners friendly.
2. Optimale Thick Silicone Cock Ring for $12 from Peepshowtoys. This one is pretty similar to the Tantus C-ring.
3. Fifty Shades of Grey Adjustable Cock Ring $14.99 from Lovehoney. Adjustable silicone rings are a great solution to beginners or shopping online, since they can be customized and tightened up much more easily. They can also be pulled out right away, even with a hard-on, while most of the others can only be taken off after you lose your erection.
4. Set of 3 Optimale Thick Silicone Cock Rings for $22 from Peepshowtoys. A set of different sizes is great for beginners, since it’s always recommended to start off with something bigger and more flexible and maybe move to a smaller ring once you’re used to placing it and taking it off.
5. Optimale Vibrating Cock Ring for $25 from Peepshowtoys. This battery-operated single ring comes are a really good price. It has several vibration modes and speeds and it’s pretty easy to operate.
6. Tantus C-Sling for $34.64 from Tantus. This sling-style cock ring applies pressure on the perineum. While fucking, it’s going to rock back and forth and massage the prostate on the outside.
7. Optimale Vibrating Double Cock Ring for $35 from Peepshowtoys. This is a double cock ring – one of the rings goes around the penis, while the bigger ring goes around the balls. One of the bullets is placed on the perineum, for prostate stimulation, and the other one is great for clitoral stimulation. Each of the bullets is battery operated, can be removed and has multiple speeds. Read my full review here.
8. Tantus Vibrating Super Soft C-Ring for $39.90 from Tantus
9. Tenga Smart Vibe Ring for $79.99 from Shevibe. If you know that you like cock rings and are ready to invest into a stronger, rechargeable and higher quality ring.
10. Je Joue Mio Rechargeable Cock Ring for $109 from Good Vibrations.

Vibrations can feel amazing when applied externally on the shaft of the penis, on the frenulum and the head, or on the balls and the perineum! One can use an smaller (or big!) wand-stile vibrator on the scrotum while performing a blow job, or a hand job. A lot of men love masturbating with these: simply hold the vibe against your balls while you’re stroking yourself. Something great about this category is that all of these vibes can be shared by both partners! And as you will see from the next category, these can be repurposed and made even more versatile with the help of good attachments.

1. Shibari Halo Wand for $54.99 from Shevibe. This one is rechargeable, water-proof and body safe. What else can one need from a wand? Only downside is that the Magic Wand attachments won’t fit on this one.
2. Magic Wand Original (aka Hitachi) for $59.95 from Good Vibrations. This one is an icon. If you are looking for maximum power and don’t mind the cord, go for it. Its only downsides are the porous head of the toy and the only two speeds that might be too overwhelming for some folks. Fits all Magic Wand attachments.
3. BMS PalmPower Wand Massager for $69 from Peepshowtoys. Another body-safe option with a removable silicone head. It even has a rechargeable version for the same price! You can purchase additional attachments for this one, but your Magic Wand attachments won’t fit. Another body-safe option with a removable silicone head. It even has a rechargeable version for the same price! You can purchase additional attachments for this one, but your Magic Wand attachments won’t fit.
4. Jimmyjane Iconic Wand for $74.99 form Shevibe. This multi-speed, waterproof rechargeable wand is a top pick of many. Again the Magic Wand attachments won’t fit on it though.
5. Mystic Wand Rechargeable for $95.95 from Good Vibrations. As I mention in my review of this wand, it’s less powerful than the Magic Wand Original, but that’s what makes a some penis-owners like it. It’s smaller and lighter, easier to hold and it’s not as overwhelming. It’s rechargeable, but if you run out of battery, you can use it plugged in the cord. It’s really sleek and pretty. No attachments.

6. Lovehoney Desire Wand for $99 from Lovehoney. Silicone, multi-speed and rechargeable. Not compatible with Magic Wand attachments.
7. Sola Egg Massager Wellness Set for $109.99 from Shevibe. I’ve reviewed the Passion Set version of this set, that just comes with different silicone attachments included. I think the Wellness Set might be a better option for penis-owners, since they can’t really benefit much with the Bunni and Omi attachments of the other one. What’s the Sola Egg Massager: it’s a super small, handheld cordless wand with removable silicone head. Magic Wand attachments fit great on it and it’s just fantastic for penises when combined with the Hummingbird attachment (see next category).
8. Magic Wand Rechargeable for $124.95 from Peepshowtoys. What can I say? The updated cordless version of the Magic Wand Rechargeable is pretty awesome. The battery holds up to 4.5 hrs, the head is silicone, it has several speeds to fit everybody’s needs. And all of the attachments meant for the Magic Wand Original fit on it.
9.Tantus Rumble for $129.99 from Tantus. The Tantus Rumble is the first vibrator created with every body in mind. It’s a completely gender neutral vibrator, that is super hygienic, has a silicone head, that can be removed and properly cleaned. And it’s feather light! Magic Wand Attachments don’t really work with it, but Tantus sells attachments that fit Rumble. Read my full review here.
10. Doxy Die Cast for $189.99 from Shevibe. This one is simply the best and strongest wand on earth. Find out why.

Magic Wand Attachments

Something great about Doxy and the Magic Wand Original or Rechargeable is that they can be turned into so many other things. Just place one of the following attachments and enjoy your wand in a completely new way. Again: lube is mandatory!

1. The Hummingbird Masturbator Attachment for $23.99 from Shevibe. This is a masturbation sleeve that goes on top of your wand. It’s the best thing since sliced bread. It can make even a flaccid penis ejaculate, and it’s great for folks with ED, but even if you have no problem maintaining a full erection, this attachment is going to give you the sensation of a masturbation sleeve and the strong wand vibrations at once. Keep in mind that this attachment is porous, so you might wanna replace it after a couple of months.
2. The Pop Tops Silicone G-Spotter for $40 from Good Vibrations. This g-spot attachment can be used anally for prostate play.
3. The Vixen Gee Whiz Attachment for $56.99 from Shevibe. Another super cool silicone g-spot attachment that can take anal play into the next level.

Prostate Toys

Prostate toys are a great way to discover your prostate. Prostate massage is not only pleasurable, but also helps prevent prostate cancer. Oh, and did I mention that you can enjoy hands-free orgasms lasting minutes with most of these?

Pegging Kits, Harnesses and Dildos

Luckily anal play is becoming less and less of a taboo. A number of hetero couples are dipping their toes into pegging: when the female partner uses a strap on to penetrate the male anally. Pegging can be super fun, but remember to always start small, be patient, communicate with your partner and use a lot of lube. Here are a couple of suggestions for harnesses, strap-on kits or dildos that are good for pegging.

Another way you can use harnesses in your sex life is for double penetration. #10 on the list is a double harness: your partner can have their penis outside, and use a dildo as well to double penetrate you vaginally and anally at the same time. So fun! Or you can use a double ended toy, such as #8 Share Vibe, and enjoy g-spot stimulation while penetrating him anally.

Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub Review

Chakrub Review

I wish I could capture beauty and perfection in words, and how special this product is. I wish you could evaluate it not just as a sex toy, a pleasure object, but also as an aesthetic piece of art.

If you are getting scared that this post is going to be too woo-woo for your taste, rest assured, the Chakrub is a great toy by itself. There is going to be some talk about chakras, crystals and energy. But you can stay for the pleasure bit. Stay for the shape and the design of these dildos. Stay because you want to support one-of-a-kind products, stay because you want to vote with your wallet and give your money to small businesses.

About Chakrubs

There aren’t many companies that can truly pull out the “unique” claim. Luckily this isn’t your regular adult business. Chakrubs is a small, woman-owned company, that specializes is the creation of crystal dildos, butt plugs and yoni eggs. Their products are made of White Jade (aka Rabbit Jade), Blue Aventurine, Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Black Obsidian, Green Aventurine (or Indian Jade), Red Jasper, or Orange Aventurine. Their dildos come in three shapes: the slim Chakrub, the thick Chakrub (the one I am reviewing), the Wand Chakrub.

Crystals and Chakras

Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub ReviewThe chakras, according to Buddhism, are energy centers in our bodies. Not our physical body, but our subtle body. There are seven major chakras and each of them has a corresponding sound, color and crystals that can heal them. Most crystals can heal more than one chakra. Some of our chakras are responsible for decision-making, clarity and feeling of determination and purpose, others for (not) feeling loved and secure, or feeling shame or guilt. For those of you who practice yoga, and/or tantra, these concepts might be very close to your heart and mind; others might read this with a dose of skepticism. I’m in no way an expert of the Chakra system, but Vanessa Cuccia, the owner of the company, explains in at length in this blog post. As everything in the world, nothing is binary or black and white, and I fall somewhat in the middle of the spectrum. I can’t say I fully understand or embrace Tantra, Chakras, or Buddhism, but I know certain practices make me feel better. Whether it’s breathing exercises, meditation, or visualization, a lot of these have their place in the bedroom and can be used for pleasure, during sex, or to reduce trauma or shame for previous experiences. In my opinion anything that works for you, even if you don’t know why and how, should be embraced (if it doesn’t harm you or others in some way, of course). Whether it’s walking in nature, listening to bird and waterfall sounds, doing yoga, getting a massage, having aroma candles, or using oils. A lot of us already have embraced in one way or another some aspect of these rituals in our everyday life, in our relaxation practices or in our partnered or solo time. And you can use your crystal dildo for way more things than just penetration. You can just hold the crystal close to you, you can have it at your work space, where you meditate, or in your bed. You can put it under your pillow. You can carry it with you for protection from negative energy. And the thick Chakrub might be a good self-defense tool as well!

Why Crystals? (Besides Chakras and Buddhism)

Crystals are body-safe. Making crystal dildos doesn’t harm the environment. Using them doesn’t harm your body. They’re non-porous, one of a kind, aesthetic and beautiful. They transfer and keep temperature in unique ways. They’re heavy and great for creating a feeling of fullness, pressure and weight in your body (the same way we love our stainless steel Njoy products). They don’t use batteries or power, all you will ever need is your product. They’re arguably the first thing early humans have used for self-pleasure. You know these questions about what you’d take with you if your plane crashes on an island? Chances are that the island in the middle of nowhere isn’t gonna have electricity. So in deserted island scenario you can always rely on a durable material that only needs your hands to operate it. Okay, all joking aside: stone dildos feel really differently from silicone, metals or even glass. They’re great for massages. And they’re beautiful. That’s a F.A.C.T.

Getting Your Chakrub

Besides clearly choosing the right shape for your needs — thicker or slimmer, direct g-spot stimulation or not — you might want to read the description of the different stones the dildos are made of. Chakrubs have a very comprehensive guide to the benefits of each crystal. You will receive your package beautifully wrapped with a personal letter with a seal. It includes instructions about taking care of your crystal, cleaning it and getting to know it. Making it yours. Getting acquainted with its energy and how it makes you feel. Getting it on the same wavelength as you are, so to speak. The dildo itself comes in a gorgeous lace and satin storage wrap that I just can’t take my eyes off.

What Is It Like?

Chakrubs Dildo ReviewI got the Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub. It’s a white stone, also known as white jasper, that I absolutely love. It helps you achieve inner peace, focus and clarity, feel purified. Just looking at it makes me feel peaceful and more in harmony. It’s almost one pound heavy, which is something that I appreciate these days. A lot of us have come to love heavier toys because contrary to what you might think they require less effort to move and stimulate pleasure zones. Their weight kind of does the job for you. The shape of the big Chakrub is that of an extra elongated tear drop. It’s smooth on both ends, so it can be used as a double ended dildo. Using the pointy side is great for a-spot (deep spot, cervical) stimulation, while the thicker part is fabulous for feeling full. It provides good g-spot pressure, even though it doesn’t have a g-spot curve. If you need to get an idea about it’s size: when measured flat it’s 7” long and goes from 1″ to 1.75” wide. It has a circumference of 3.5″ at the small end and 5.25″ at the large end.

You will need to warm up your stone (glass, metal) dildo before using it. Just have some running water of a temperature that feels pleasant on your body, the kind of water you will use to shower or take a bath with, or just slightly warmer. If you are in the middle of something and can’t get to water or you don’t want to interrupt your play, just warm the crystal up with your body. Have it on your belly, on your chest. The Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub has no drag to it. The material is really smooth and you only need a little bit of lubrication in order to slide it inside of you. The warmth is going to bring extra circulation and it’s going to feel much better and different from silicone toys. Thrusting it in and out or applying pressure to particular pleasure zones is really easy with a toy of this size and weight.

Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub Review

Because of its girth and ability to keep temperature, the Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub has become one of my favorite dildos. It’s such a simple but genius shape that really works with this particular material. Using it makes me feel truly special and taken care of. Definitely not your regular commercial dildo.

The prices of these beauties vary based on the price of the crystal they’re made of. The Rabbit Jade Thick Chakrub sells for $169, which is roughly the price of most of their thicker dildos, and their slimmer ones go for around $115. They’re absolutely worth it!

Note that these dildos are not safe for anal play and they’re not harness compatible. If you want to explore some butt play, try out their plugs.
