OhMiBod blueMotion Nex 2 Review

Updated on 12/19/2016.

OhMiBod blueMotion Nex 2

I’ve had my eyes on OhMiBod (aka LoveLife) toys for a while now. And one model in particular: the LoveLife Cuddle. I’ve read a great many positive reviews, and the price tag of $69 for a rechargeable vibrator just had me perplexed. How could a vaginal vibrator of such a small size get such great rating? Then OhMiBod added a bluetooth remote function and an app and called it blueMotion Nex 2. This made me extra curious to find out whether the Nex 2 was worth almost twice the Cuddle. Short answer: I  don’t think so. But we’ll get to that.

How similar is it to the Cuddle?

OhMiBod blueMotion Nex 2The blueMotion Nex 2 arrives in a stylish box (but not as small and cute as the one of the Cuddle) with a white satin storage bag.

It’s a small insertable vibe with an insertable length of 4″ and only 1.25″ of maximum girth in diameter. It has a nice and smooth silicone shaft and ABS plastic handle with three controls. It’s super easy to change speeds and vibration modes. It has 7 patterns, some of which are quite nice, and multiple speeds. It’s rechargeable, taking around 2.5 hrs to fully charge in exchange of up to 2 hrs of play. Unfortunately, it’s only splash proof, not submersible. Cleaning lube and vaginal fluids off the embedded OhMiBod letters in the silicone at he back of the toy can be a challenge. Why do companies keep making toys this way? Never mind… blueMotion Nex 2 and Cuddle are equally powerful, rumbly but quiet, and have an insanely good g-spot curve. It might not look like it, but it’s far more pleasant than many other g-spot vibrators I’ve used. It’s super easy to hold and use, and makes me orgasm both applied on my clit or in my vagina. So far, I give it 5 stars.

How does it feel?

Overall I am somewhat of a size queen. But I’ve noticed that often I like bigger objects vaginally just to make up for the lack of a g-spot curve. I squeeze my vaginal muscles around their shaft and this is how I end up applying pressure on my g-spot.

With the Nex 2 or the Cuddle, I don’t need any of that. Even its small size is enough to make me come because of how it’s shaped. But I often like using an additional clitoral vibrator, such as the We-Vibe Touch, alongside vaginal stimulation. But that’s just my jam, and that’s how I use most insertable vibrators or dildos.

What’s up with the blueMotion?

I don’t understand why they couldn’t call the Nex 2 simply Cuddle 2 to avoid the confusion. Confusion? Yes, because the blueMotion line has an entirely different toy, Nex 1, which is a pantie vibe. So, I almost got the wrong product. Names should help your purchasing experience, not have you Google things and research what’s what.

I don’t know who came up with the blueMotion line. The whole idea is that these vibrators can be controlled with the help of a mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet. Cool, nothing unusual here. Many people like the We-Connect app by We-Vibe and it works well for playing with a partner around the globe or in a BDSM public play scenario. Having someone wear their toy while their partner controls it, is not a fundamentally new idea. But the Nex 2 is just a regular vaginal vibrator that can’t be worn outside for public play. And it’s a vibrator that has controls which work really well, as a matter of fact I couldn’t be more happy with its well-designed buttons. Which kind of defeats the purpose of a so-so app.

If you ask me, the hole point of having someone control the vibrations of an internal vibrator is a bit non nonsensical. A lot of the pleasure one derives from an internal vibrator is from the way one moves their wrists, how they control the shaft of the toy, how they thrust in and out — all of that. Having someone controlling your vibe from around the globe, or from a distance, unfortunately doesn’t make them really in control of your pleasure. It’s a better idea in theory than in practice.

Possible Applications

I completely admit that there are many scenarios in which it could be exciting to have someone control your vibrator for you. Whether you’re in a long distance relationship, or enjoy power play and orgasm denial, the app can give you an extra dimension and more opportunities to enjoy your time together or your time apart.

Cam girls could also use this vibrator as an opportunity to connect with their clients and allow a much more interactive experience.

The app

While the app itself is not bad, I wouldn’t say that it is that necessary to the average customer or that it brings much additional value to the toy (unlike an app controlled toy is exactly what you were looking for). One big downside of the app is that it doesn’t allow you to use the toy in a steady vibration setting or easily control the speed (the way the We-Connect app does, for example). It allows you to control a few patterns (and you already have patterns on the vibe), design your own pattern, or allow the toy to create a pattern via sounds — the pattern is controlled by the loudness of a voice, music or whatever you choose to play in the background. Again, in everyday life, many of these are just novelty aspects that don’t contribute that much to the experience in practice.

Did I mention that the app allows you to record your orgasms? It literally lets you set a weekly goal of how many times you want to come. What on earth? Why would I reach to my phone and mark down that I’ve had an orgasm. In an app. In a journal, maybe… I get it that some people like sex geekery and might be excited to record that, but for an extra $60? How about notepads? Virtual or analogue? Not to mention that this puts a whole lot of pressure on you. I don’t like the aspect of asking our bodies to perform a certain way, say, come a minimum number of time a week.

In conclusion

OhMiBod blueMotion Nex 2I find the upgrade OhMiBod gave to the Cuddle a bit unnecessary for the average customer. What you get extra is  an app that’s just okay. If you are in a long-distance relationship and want to have an internal vibe that your partner can control, I strongly recommend We-Vibe Rave that is slightly cheaper and is a mind-blowing toy, that also has a good g-spot curve, and a much better app. If you just want a good g-spot vibrator, get the Cuddle, it’s virtually the same toy as Nex 2 sans the app. By all means, if you  can afford the Nex, and if you like the few extra functionalities, Nex 2 is still a good overall product. And it still manager to be cheaper than most rechargeable silicone brands, some of which don’t even come with a storage case, let alone an app. The blueMotion Nex 2 will set you back $129, while the Cuddle is just $69 and totally rocks. If you are struggling financially, don’t despair, the Cuddle is an utter delight!

Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo Review

Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo

I’ve been dreaming of the day I’d get to review the Pulse by Hot Octopuss. When I started my blog, I had just come back from Woodhull SFS16. I remember Erin Basler (a sex educator and disability advocate) mentioning what a great toy it was, not just in general, but for people with mobility issues, for folks with erectile dysfunction and many others. The Pulse II Solo or Duo used to be on my wishlist for many months. I used to imagine the great pleasure it could bring my partner… I wanted to use it in a BDSM dynamic. I wanted to use it for forced orgasm. I wanted to have him blindfolded and tied up, to tease him, to caress him and then pop the toy onto his hard cock and make him completely mine. Unable to fight orgasm. Orrr something of that sort. Did I drift away? You have to forgive me…

Then the joyous day finally arrived! Hot Octopuss asked me to review their newest model, the Pulse III Duo. Lucky me! I was trembling with anticipation. I opened the stylish box with the British flag on it (Hot Octopuss is a British brand), took the toy in my hands… and my heart sank. As much as the toy features flexible wings able to expand and fit different penis sizes, there’s a crescent at the bottom of the toy that’s completely molded and fixed, making the toy only compatible with penises with diameter of 1.4″ and less. I knew that my partner’s dick couldn’t remotely fit in the Pulse. I had to go back and remember the ghosts of past penises (these days I am much more into girls, so the rest of the penises I’ve played with date way back). Reminiscing on the past didn’t help much either. A good third of the penises I could remember wouldn’t be able to fit in the Pulse — I think. This came as a huge surprise to me, because I’ve read a number of other reviews of the toy, and no other blogger, reviewer or sex educator had mentioned that this toy has severe limitations when it comes to the girth it can accommodate.

I’m guessing that probably more than half of the penises in the world will be able to fit in the toy and experience great pleasure with it — but no statistics here to back this up. So I can’t recommend the toy to anyone who thinks they’re on the larger end of the scale without seeing the product in real life, at a brick and mortar, and judging for themselves.

But if there’s a will, there’s a way…

With plenty of lube, weird sideways positions, and maneuvering we managed to somehow use the toy. And I am more than happy to report that WE LOVED IT.

But first things first, what is Pulse?

Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo ReviewPulse is a guybrator. It’s an external penis “sleeve” that vibrates. It doesn’t simply vibrate, but it oscillates, creating a much deeper, rumblier sensation. This technology was developed to help people with spinal injury achieve orgasm and experience pleasure. And it works beyond “great”. It’s a state of the art sex toy that has me drooling every time I see it. Finally a high tech, super cool, powerful and sophisticated penis toy that goes beyond tacky TPE penis sleeves.

The toy goes around the penis and since it has flexible wings, it can stay in place and give hands free pleasure (when the penis is erect). It can be used with or without lubricant for two different sensations. Without lube the toy will stay static, and the penis can enjoy the said hands-free pleasure; while lubricated it can be used as a vibrating stroker.

It’s made of silicone and ABS plastic, weighs 220 g or 7.76 oz, and it is entirely waterproof, rechargeable and features 6 preset vibration modes, as well as turbo mode. The “on” and “off” button is really easily distinguishable from the power up and down controls as they’re on separate parts of the toy. Accessing the turbo mode can be achieved by holding the “+” button for more than 1 sec (though pressing it can be a little tricky if the penis is already inside).

What is it good for?

Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo ReviewThe Pulse III is good for practically everybody with a penis (and anyone who has a partner with a penis). It’s not just a masturbation device, but it can be used in various partnered scenarios (read some ideas a few paragraphs down).

This is also a great toy for anyone with disabilities. Anything from mobility and grip issues, to spinal injury and ED. Pulse can be used without an erection and can make even a flaccid penis ejaculate and experience pleasure. Yes, if you thought dicks are no good if they’re soft, think again! Penises can have pleasure with our without a hard on!

Another great realm of possibilities is for folks with sexual side effects from antidepressants. Many people (yes, men too!) experience anorgasmia as a result of antidepressant treatments and other medications. These side effects make it rather difficult to reach the point of no return. It often feels like the orgasm is so close but yet beyond reach. This can be extremely frustrating for both parties. Not only for the penis owner, but it can make the partner feel inadequate, unattractive or incapable of satisfying others. Using vibration can help a great deal, such as with small wands like the Tantus Rumble or the Mystic Wand Rechargeable. But the Pulse takes everything to another level.

Differences between Pulse II and Pulse III

Most stores still stock the older version, Pulse II, which sells for around $10 less than Pulse III. If you can afford it, I would recommend you get the III over the II, because the III uses a magnetic charger and is completely waterproof. Which does matter immensely for this toy because the entire inner part (and often the outside of it) gets all lubed up, not to mention possibly having ejaculate all over the toy! So being fully waterproof is pretty essential for cleaning up the Pulse. (Yes, the toy is not porous, but given how many ridges and grooves it has, lube easily gets stuck in places that are really hard to clean.)

When it comes to the Pulse II Duo vs. Pulse III Duo, there’s even more improvement. The outer motor of the toy, the one designed for the partner’s pleasure (see next section), is 25% more powerful. Again, the difference between the two is around $10, which is a small price to pay for waterproofness and more power.

Differences between Pulse III Solo and Pulse III Duo

Hot Octopuss Pulse 3 ReviewI know this review got a little confusing. The numbers II or III refer to the version of the toy; Solo or Duo refer to a key feature that differs between the two. Solo (II or III) is only a guybrator, meaning that it only vibrates on the inside, for the satisfaction of the penis. The Duo on the other hand (II or III) has one additional motor on the outside for the pleasure of the partner that’s not using it primarily. The “couple” function that the Duo has works for hetero, as well as gay couples. As long as your partner likes vibration, they can grind on the outside of the toy, while the first person is using the toy in their penis. This additional option is controlled by a remote control (which is also waterproof). The external motor has 3 power levels that are rumbly and broad, but not extremely powerful. The price difference between Solo and Duo is around $40 in each of the versions.

Enjoying it together

I am a strong believer that pretty much any toy is a couple’s toy. As long as you’re using it together with your partner, it’s a partnered toy. I think that any solo toy can be turned into a fun tool for your together time — sharing the experience is what counts. This is why I think even the Solo version is a great toy to be enjoyed with a partner. As I mentioned, you can use it in a BDSM scenario, you can simply hold the toy and stroke it for your partner, you can give them a blowjob while they’re using the toy (since the head of the penis is still mainly outside of the toy), or you can play with their balls or their ass… You can be 69-ing, they can be fingering you while enjoying the toy… The possibilities are endless.

Stepping into someone else’s shoes

I’m a strong believer of equality in pleasure. I’m a strong advocate for fixing the orgasm gap (the % of women who’ve experienced orgasm during their last partnered sex is far smaller than the % of men who’ve experienced orgasm during their last partnered sex). But to be fair, I also acknowledge that penis-owners don’t have as many choices when it came to toys. And that’s  unfair. Men can feel threatened by the numerous toys options a vulva-owner has. They may even feel like they can be replaced by a sex toy. This is why I think everyone should have a toy — better still, toys. Added benefit: guys can step into women’s shoes and finally get it: toys don’t replace partners, they enhance partnered time! Bottom line, penis-owners deserve pleasure and good choices too.

Things to consider

It’s worth mentioning that the Pulse III can feel a little obtrusive and weird for some users. It’s a very different sensation from that of other soft and squishy strokers. The Hot Octopuss Pulse is made of silicone and hard plastic, which can feel rigid and constraining for some penis-owners. Or at least it can take a little time getting used to it.

Things that can be improved in the future

I need to mention that the toy is a little loud, but from what I know from other reviewers, this is by far the quietest model. So I guess there’s only so much that can be done with this much power.

But as I said, what really troubles me is the size. The toy just doesn’t seem to fit in any possible way a penis with a girth greater than 1.4″, and even 1.3″ would barely be a good fit. The Pulse would greatly benefit from having editions in regular (the current) and large size(s). Or maybe even three sizes. After all, condoms come in 3 different sizes, at least, and they’re flexible.

Final Thoughts

Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo ReviewThis multiple award-winning toy remains one of my best recommendations as a gift for penis-owners. It’s the Rolls Royce of penis toys. Even its Solo version brings so much joy and new sensations to the bedroom. It’s an absolute necessity for any man struggling with ED, anorgasmia, or any mobility issue, caused by aging, accidents or trauma. It’s also the ultimate masturbation tool that doesn’t assume the sexual orientation of the user, that doesn’t resemble any genitalia, orifice, or a sexual act performed with partner. It’s an entire new world of pleasure than any penis owner deserves to experience.

If you are able to spare the money and want to have more options for mutual pleasure derived from the toy, you can go for the Duo version that sells for $149. But the Solo version, priced at $109 will be great for most people. Remember, partnered fun depends on your imagination!

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.

Vibrators

Tantus Rumble and Mystic Wand Rechargeable

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?

10. Nexus Revo 2 Rotating Vibrating Prostate Massager for $149.99 from Shevibe.This is a really high-quality multi-speed rechargeable prostate toy that has rave reviews.

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.

Mystic Wand Rechargeable Review

Mystic Wand Rechargeable Review

My relationship with the Mystic Wand Rechargeable began even before owning one. Years ago I read Epiphora’s review of the Mystic Wand, a small, lighter, battery-operated and cordless cousin of the Hitachi Magic Wand, that she and many others loved. I was always envious of cool US brands that were impossible or difficult to find in Europe. Sure, the Mystic Wand looked ridiculous, as many early Vibratex creations, such as the original Rabbit Habit vibrator. Apparently my patience has been rewarded, because Vibratex finally came up with a rechargeable, non-90’s-looking version of the Mystic Wand.

How is it different than the original one?

Well… as the name suggests it’s rechargeable. No more 4 x AAA batteries. But what’s even more important is that you can use the toy plugged in the outlet. Yes, you can use it while it’s charging! Which isn’t how most rechargeable vibrators work. And I am really grateful for this feature, because I can totally use less “when is it gonna die???” anxiety in my life (which by the way is a real thing). Another thing that’s significantly improved is the design. More ergonomic, more body-friendly, more crip-friendly (and I am throwing myself in this category too, as I suffer from several conditions that make holding an object for extended periods of time painful and sometimes impossible). And as someone pointed out in the comment section of another review of the Mystic Wand Rechargeable, the new shape is great for people with short hands!

Packaging

The Mystic Wand Rechargeable comes in a plain box that doesn’t suggest it’s a sex toy, unless you read the back of the box where the word “lover” will hit you in the face. I am not even going to comment on this horrible copy that is shaming men, scratch that, shaming every human partner, for being bad lovers and calls the toy the best one you can possibly have. Even if a someone thinks that their Hitachi is their ideal boyfriend, there’s a difference between standing up for yourself, knowing what you want and taking care of your own needs, (Yay feminism!) and when a sex toy company is trying to shame your partners for simply not being good enough.

The Mystic Wand Rechargeable comes with a charger, a wall adapter, and an instruction leaflet with pretty much the same copy as the box.

Features

Luckily, once you’re done with the packaging, everything else gets better (I hope you’re one of these people who doesn’t read boxes and instructions and just jumps right at the gadget itself.) The new Mystic Wand is silicone, very soft and nice to touch and it doesn’t look tacky at all (bravo, Vibratex, you’ve learned your lesson). The toy is splash-proof which means that you cannot submerge it in water, but you can briefly wash it. You will only need soap and water to clean the toy, again: I would steer clear of running water directly over the controls.The battery takes between 2 and 3 hrs to charge completely, which will give you 40 to 90 min of play. After that: just plug and play.

Well done, Vibratex, well done!

What I love about it is how travel-friendly it is. It’s 9 inches in total length with a head of 1.9 inches by 2.25 inches. And it’s super light! Tantus-Rumble-light! It doesn’t look like a vibrator, so taking it through security wouldn’t give you too much of a headache and unpleasant interactions with TSA agents.

Mystic Wand Rechargeable ReviewI think they’ve done a really good job in terms of ergonomics. The handle curves towards you, and is easy to hold. What’s interesting is that they’ve added extra controls in 2 other places. You have the main on/off at the front, and you have a button that says “F” (which apparently stands for “function”, not for “fuck”). But at the back of the toy there are two more “F” buttons that do the same, but are located one at the end of the handle, and one closer to the base for your convenience. I think this isn’t a bad idea, because everyone holds their toy in a different way. So far I haven’t had negative experiences of changing the setting by accident. I just wish that with all these buttons, there was one that could take you back in the 3 speeds and 3 patterns. It only goes one way, which means you need to circle through the 6 modes, if you missed your jam.

The neck of the Mystic Wand Rechargeable is just slightly flexible, which works great for me, because it gives me enough pressure, without being too unpleasant and too rigid against my body, given that the head is fairly firm. Other bloggers have reported that they don’t like the ridges and the insane number of seams on the toy. It can certainly get annoying and cleaning can be a huge pain, if you are using lots of lube in your play sessions. The way I use wands and clitoral vibrators is with zero lube, because I actually like a little drag. I like positioning the toy in one place and having it there, while applying different amount of pressure. I can’t come if my clitoral toy is too slippery, it just keeps missing the “right” spot for me, if there’s any lubrication. But I know a number of people who are too sensitive and cannot have any external vibration without lube. Avoid silicone-based lube with this vibrator and stick to a good water-based lube.

At use

The Mystic Wand Rechargeable is fairly rumbly and strong for a light rechargeable toy. It doesn’t have the “umph” of the Magic Wand, or the Doxy, but it is strong enough to please most people. When compared to Tantus Rumble, which also has 3 steady vibration modes and a few patterns, the Mystic Wand Rechargeable is slightly more powerful. The head is also not as wide and broad, which might work for more people, as it gives a good balance between broad and pinpoint vibrations.The vibe is not whisper quiet by any means, but it’s also far from distractingly noisy.

Mystic Wand Rechargeable Review

The toy itself is very gender neutral (and I wish they’d edit the copy, so more penis-owners will embrace it). It’s a great toy for any body and any equipment. My penis-owning partner loves it, because he can’t take more powerful wands, but he likes vibrations a lot. The Mystic Wand Rechargeable provides him with that perfect range of vibrations and speed that is neither “I don’t feel a thing”, not “Ouch, get that thing away from me!”. It feels really great on his balls and on his shaft.

Last words

I was really pleasantly surprised by the Mystic Wand Rechargeable. Despite thinking that it wasn’t powerful enough  at first, after having used it for a while, I now appreciate that it actually has enough power for a number of situations. It’s not heavy and thuddy, but it’s also not meant to be a Magic Wand replacement. It’s a light, travel-friendly, less powerful vibrator, that is probably going to work for more people and more bodies than the Magic Wand or the Doxy. It’s also cheaper than the said toys, and you can get it for $95.95 (available only in black) and free shipping from Good Vibrations.

Good Vibrations constantly run sales and deals and you can find their current promotions either on their website, or in my “SALES” section.

Njoy Fun Wand Review

Njoy Fun Wand Double Ended Stainless Steel Dildo

Njoy Fun Wand is an unfortunately overlooked and underestimated toy! It’s been overshadowed by it’s bigger and notorious siblings: the Njoy Pure Wand and the monstrous Njoy Eleven. Yet it has a huge potential to it and might be a better choice for a lot of people (or a good addition to your Njoy family portrait).

Brand

What is Njoy and why are you talking about it as if we’re supposed to know what it is? Good question! There aren’t stupid questions and usually I am one of the last people to get the memo. Njoy is an American brand that specializes in stainless steel dildos and butt plugs. They feature only a small number of toys. Their dildos are double ended, so they offer a good range of different sensations. They’re an investment in your sex life and in yourself because they’re going to last forever. They don’t have batteries or any electronics and they’re made of steel, so they’re never going to deform. Steel, really?! For a sex toy?! This might not sound sexy at first, but believe me: it is! Why is metal sexy? Because it’s perfectly sleek and smooth, it has no drag to it, it slides really pleasantly, even with a tiny bit of lube. And there’s something both luxurious and bad-ass about it.

What’s that Pure Wand you’re talking about? It’s another double ended dildo by Njoy that you might have probably seen in porn. It got famous for making women squirt. What about the Eleven? It’s a 3 lb 11″ long beast. Need I say more? So you see why the Fun Wand has it tough? It simply has a couple of over-achieving siblings to compete with.

Shape

dscn2726The Fun Wand is certainly the most versatile toy Njoy offers. Scratch that, it’s one of the most versatile toys EVER. It’s a double ended dildo that is great for g-spot stimulation, prostate play, and all adventures anal or vaginal. You can share it with your partner, and you can safely switch orifices. It’s S-shaped and it curves this way by design (opposite to the Pure Wand). Doug, the creator of Njoy, wanted it to curve downwards, so while the topping partner is pleasing the receiver, they can also worship them orally. How cool is that? And if you think about it, it’s impossible to be thrusting inside with the Pure Wand and give cunnilingus at the same time. Even using a clitoral vibe isn’t easy-peasy. The Fun allows all that!

One of the ends is smooth and only has a 1″ thick bulb at the end, which is really cool for working the g-spot. This end is as thick as the slimmer end of the Pure Wand and I know a number of people who prefer it. Not everyone is a size queen, you know. Sometimes bigger isn’t better. That same end is great for p-spot stimulation too, without being too big or intimidating in size, if your man isn’t super advanced with anal toys (1″ is as thick as the smallest of the Njoy butt plugs).

The other side is beady, progressing from 0,75″ to 1″ at its widest. Which makes the two smaller beads the smallest Njoy insertables. The small Pure Plug by Njoy has 1″ in girth, so if you or your honey are newbie-newbie to anal play, this is a perfect toy for you. The beads feel fantastic and the curve follows your anatomy perfectly.

What is great about this shape is that it makes it really easy to play with your own bum. The end that will be sticking out is like a little tail or a handle that you can use to thrust in and out or to work your own ass or prostate. Which can be orgasmic, even for women. It’s so easy that you can do it with one hand (reaching back and operating the toy by the handle) and still have your other hand free for using a clit or vag toy, or for stroking your penis.

Didn’t I say it was versatile?

Njoy Fun Wand Double Ended Stainless Steel Dildo

Material

It’s made of the same quality stainless steel found in Njoy products, and it will last you a lifetime. At the same time it’s literally half the weight of the Pure Wand: Fun is only 12 oz or 340 grams, while Pure is 1.5 lb or 680 grams. That is a lot for many people, and the Fun wand comes to the rescue. Even if you already own and love your Pure Wand, you might want to get a Fun Wand just for your travels.

The toy is a joy to maintain. It can be used with every kind of lube: water, silicone or oil-based and is entirely non-porous. So simple soap and water are enough to clean it but if you want to switch from the back to the front door, you will need to soak it in 10% bleach solution or boil it for 5-10 min.

Applications and Use

dscn2679-copy

As I said, it’s delicious for all bodies and can be used for a number of things. One of its amazing qualities is the way it holds temperature. It’s great for temperature play. Warming it up with hot water running from your sink will help with blood circulation and arousal. That turned out to be applicable to butt play too: until I tried Njoy products anally, I didn’t know how wonderful temperature play would feel in there. It will help you relax, open up, and enjoy it more. Even if you don’t necessarily warm it up, it will adjust better to the body temperature and feel really pleasant inside.

How does one play with the g-spot? Simply lubricate and insert the the single bulb end in the vagina. That side of the toy should be facing up: the toy should curve inside towards the belly or the front wall of the vagina. You can add extra pressure on the pubic mound by placing your palm and stimulating the g-spot from outside. By doing this you should be able to feel the head of the toy through the abdomen. But don’t get worried if you don’t, this might not be as pronounced for every woman. Ask your girl for feedback. The g-spot is typically 1.5-2″ from the vaginal opening, so you don’t need a very deep penetration in order to stimulate it. You will feel the toy securely locked or hooked behind the pubic bone. Try moving the toy just sliiightly in and out, or just move it around or “rock it. Try small movements with your wrist while holding the toy; you don’t need a whole lot more.

Last Words

This isn’t a toy for size queens or super advanced anal enthusiasts. It’s very newbie friendly and can be a really good first toy not just for one of the partners, but for both of them. It’s much less girthy but equally exciting as the Pure wand. If you are looking for a 3 in 1 toy (g-spot, p-spot, anal beads) or for something of the same quality as your bigger Njoys, but lighter and more portable, you found your match. It’s also much less of a clit or vulva-blocker. You can enjoy oral sex while being stimulated with the toy because it curves towards your bum, not towards your belly.

The Fun Wand comes in the same luxurious box as all other products from the line, and nobody can ever guess it’s a sex toy. It’s pure artwork. If my pictures don’t prove it, I don’t know what will. You can get it for a little less than $100 and with free shipping from Njoy Toys, Good Vibrations, SheVibe, Peepshowtoys, Lovehoney or Babeland [no free shipping]. In Canada: from Come as You Are; in the UK, Australia or internationally: from Lovehoney.

Njoy Pure wand was a generous present from NJOY as a sponsor gift of Sex Geek Summer Camp 2016.

B-Vibe Rimming Plug Review

B-vibe Rimming Butt Plug

B-Vibe‘s Rimming Plug was such exciting news in the world of anal sex toys. Finally some new invention and development in the butt world! (As you could guess yourself, the B in b-Vibe stands for butt.) How is it different and how does it mimic rimming? A lot of sex toy manufacturers have tried to imitate oral sex for instance, and most of these toys have failed greatly.

The Rimming Plug has rotating beads in its neck, just like the beads used in some rotating rabbit vibrators. Unlike them though: these actually really work and are very powerful. The plug also has a separate vibrating motor located in the tip of the toy. We’ll get more into its settings soon, but first things first!

Packaging and getting started

B-vibe Rimming Butt Plug remote and caseB-Vibe is really, really gorgeous. It’s fancy and high-quality, but at the same time the box is somewhat fun and friendly. In all of their marketing materials they use images of very diverse couples. Not straight white couples (not that there’s anything wrong with being straight or white). They make it clear that this toy is great for solo use, for gay couples, hetero couples, butts with prostate, butts with no prostate. It comes with a detailed but comprehensive instruction book and a 1 year warranty. When you open the box you see a really sleek and fancy teal case. The case is really light, but provides enough protection for your toy, as it is resting in a specially designed plastic cast: so the plug doesn’t travel around the box. Even if you decide to throw that one away, the plug had a travel lock protection, so it won’t go off accidentally. It has a remote control whose color matches the color of your plug. The rimming plug comes in black and teal. All the cases are teal though. It’s a rechargeable toy and comes with a USB magnetic charger. You can fit all this in the case, and even have some spare space to store some lube inside. (Never forget lube! Especially for anal adventures!)

Material and shape

B-vibe Rimming Butt Plug

It’s made of a very soft (but not squishy), really matte silicone. It’s just so velvety to touch! This toy isn’t your usual silicone plug. It has a hard core underneath the silicone and it has almost zero bend or give to it (think of a Lelo Vibrator, such as Mona for comparison). It’s 100% body safe, it’s shower friendly and splash proof. They don’t say waterproof, so don’t take it in the tub with you. It’s ridiculously easy to clean: soap and water. You can deeper sanitize your silicone toys in 10% bleach solution. How about its dimensions? The Rimming Plug is big. It’s definitely made for advanced users. It’s not just wide, but it’s pretty long – even if you only count the insertable part. How big? With its insertable 4.8” x 1.5” it’s definitely bigger or as big as about half of the penises in the world. And in order to experience the rimming sensation you will have to take it all in, because the beads are located in the neck. If you are experienced with anal sex and/or pegging, this is a toy for you.

Battery and remote

B-vibe Rimming Butt Plug Remote ControlIt takes 2 hours to fully charge it from 0% to 100%, and that will last you about 1 1/2 hours on full speed. It even has a battery level indicator, which blinks when you need to charge your toy. The remote operates from 30 ft away. And it really does. Toy fully inside, clothes on, different room: that’s not stopping it. Yes, other companies have created in the past some really frustrating remotes that had to be pointed literally at somebody’s genitals to work. This isn’t the case. But even if you’re not a fan of remotes and always keep losing them, you can go through all of its settings by pressing the control at the base of the plug. Yes, it’s definitely easier to use the + and – for power with the remote, rather than pressing several times to go back to your desired setting. So what I’m getting at is: don’t lose your remote. It’s a good one. And by the way, the remote uses a small round battery. And if you forgot to read your toy’s manual, you might not remember that you have to remove the little plastic protection that keeps the battery from getting wasted before you even purchase it. So remove that battery slip. I totally freaked out that my remote was defective and wouldn’t sync. Silly me, I guess I was excited to actually try the b-Vibe, and skipped all the reading. In order to have your control synced, you need to press once the power button of the toy, so it’s blinking. This wouldn’t turn the toy on immediately; it will just pair it up with the remote.

When put to the test

You will need a fair amount of lubrication with a plug of this size. Don’t use silicone lube on it. Stick with thicker water-based lubes for anal sex, or hybrid lubes. Insert it slowly and start with the lowest setting of the rotation and the vibration. The slower it is, the more pronounced the rimming sensation is. You might wanna turn the vibration off and just concentrate on the rotation first. It takes some getting used to. Savor it. It’s really different than what you’ve experienced with other anal toys. Then play with the speed and the settings. It has several patterns as well. The strongest setting is pretty powerful!

The size and the design of the plug make it really similar to anal intercourse. It will definitely get you fully ready, if that’s on the menu for the night. The shape of the plug is round and there’s nothing that will poke you in an uncomfortable way. The widest point is not that much wider than its slimmest one, it has a nice big neck. If you are worried that it’s gonna slip out because if that ratio: don’t worry, it really won’t. It stays put.

It’s created with the help of the anal sex expert, Charlie Glickman. And you can tell. There’s very little that they could’ve done better.

One thing that could get in the way is how big the base is. If you are simply going to use it as a butt plug: it performs great. If you want to have vaginal intercourse while the plug is inside too, that could get tricky. Basically you are going to have to either spread your cheeks and have the base horizontally, not vertically. In simple words: not alongside your crack. Otherwise the base almost covers the entrance to your vagina. Also, the plug is biiig. So it could be challenging to have a penis or a dildo in your vag at the same time.

Power exchange and outside use

B-vibe Rimming Butt Plug Case and Remote ControlOne of the intended applications of the plug is for BDSM power exchange and use outside. For instance, your dom instructs you to wear the plug during your shopping at the mall or at a fancy dinner. And he gets to keep the remote. The idea is brilliant and almost works as good in real life. On the highest setting it can be a little noisy. It’s not a noisy vibrator. It’s just noisy for… wearing it a quiet boutique or luxury store. But luckily less so through your clothes or a few feet away. Unless you are going to a really quiet public place and don’t want people looking weirdly at you for having your phone buzz in your purse (that’s probably gonna be the assumption) then you are covered. Actually having people looking and wondering what’s going on might be a bit of a turn on. Unfortunately what truly gets in the way of outside use it that it’s not very comfortable to sit with it. Especially on hard surfaces.

On penises and prostates

It’s a symmetric straight butt plug. It doesn’t have a prostate curve to it, and I haven’t used it on prostate owners, so I can’t say how it feels. I am curious whether the vibration will feel really great on the prostate, because the motor is located at the tip, or whether the lack of curve will make it less so.

How does it feel on the penis, while it’s penetrating you vaginally and the plug is on its highest setting? I’ve been told that it doesn’t feel like much. To me the vibration is very strong, but I guess it doesn’t travel that much through the wall that separates your rectum and your vagina. There are plenty of organs and tissues, so I guess it just gets absorbed. Or perhaps with the thrusting and moving around during intercourse, it’s just not very noticeable. I guess one has to stay still inside in order to feel any of the vibrations.

In conclusion

B-vibe Rimming Butt PlugThis is a sick (in the best possible way) creation of an evil genius, executed in almost completely flawless way. It’s definitely a unique plug that can bring you entirely different sensations from any other anal toy. It’s one of the few really big anal toys for advanced users, and is an absolute must for your kink collection. You can drive someone mad with the remote.

It’s really high quality and absolutely worth investing money into. There aren’t many rechargeable b-plugs or anal toys on the market (to name a few manufacturers: Nexus, Fun Factory, Je Joue and Lust by Jopen). If I have to point out one disadvantage of the toy: it’s the price tag. Yes, this product is spendy. But looking into it’s named competitors, all of the rechargeable and/or remote controlled silicone anal toys I found are in the price range of 100 and 200 USD. A lot of research, work and quality materials have been put into it, and it’s definitely worth it. If you want to invest in one really high-quality toy, instead of buying several cheaper plugs (which in many cases are not silicone, ergo probably not body-safe), this is a very good way to go.

If you like the idea of a rechargeable butt plug with super strong vibrations, but are intimidated of the size of the Rimming Plug, then maybe you should take a look at the Trio Plug by b-Vibe. The only thing is that the Trio doesn’t have the rotating beads, but it has not one, but three of the strong and rumbly b-Vibe motors. The company is providing a lot of education and tips on anal sex, butt play and pleasure and is a really good and responsible manufacturer to support.
