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!

You can get the Pulse III Solo from Hot Octopuss, or you can enjoy free shipping from Good Vibrations or Shevibe.

TRUSKYN Tru Stroke Beaded Penis Stroker Review

Doc Johnson TRUSKYN Tru Stroke Beaded

The name of this one is going to twist your tongue: Doc Johnson TRUSKYN Platinum Silicone: The Tru Stroke Beaded. That’s way too many words for a $19 toy. Looks like Doc Johnson really wanted to convince us that this product is in fact made of silicone, because they actually put “silicone” as part of the name of the toy. They’re absolutely correct, I am not so easily convinced. Even after reading the box, the name, the explanation, and the manual thoroughly, I still wasn’t sure if this was truly a silicone product. Why? Well, because Doc Johnson is well known for trying to trick people with “silicone blends” and all sorts of questionable business practices. After reading Dangerous Lilly’s post about other products of the Truskyn line, I was finally convinced, okay, this is silicone.

Sex toy materials

Why does this matter? In a nutshell, what your sex toys are made of is hugely important, because a number of products (and entire brands!) out there are made of porous materials, or ones that contain phthalates. Phthalates or phthalate esters are found in elastomers and are actually toxic for your body, especially in contact of mucous membranes, such as the penis, or the vagina. Most toys for penises, even if they’re phthalate-free are made of porous TPE or TPR, which are soft and pleasant to the skin, and feel squishy and highly realistic. But these can trap bacteria and put your body at danger, even if you thoroughly wash your toys and don’t share them with other people. Peepshow toys, one of my favorite online sex stores, has committed to not selling any porous sex toys. That’s why they don’t have a huge collection of strokers and masturbators; but everything they have is high-quality. One of the reasons I was excited that this penis stroker is actually silicone and body-safe, was because it’s affordable and pretty easy to use and clean.

A few words about penis masturbators

Penis sex toys that create the sensation of penetrating are called masturbators, sleeves or strokers. They usually look like a tube in which a person inserts their dick. Some are open ended (so the head of the penis can peek out of it), others are closed at the end and feel more like an orifice. Another type of penis toy is one that looks like a taco (Dangerous Lilly’s metaphor that I can’t refrain from using). Some people call it a manta ray. The Tru Stroke Beaded is a taco-style toy. It doesn’t cover the penis entirely, but this allows it to fit penises of different sizes and girths in particular. One can grab it and hold their grip more strongly for more intense sensations and make it feel tighter. Another huge advantage of toys of this shape is that cleaning them is a breeze!

The Tru Stroke Beaded

Doc Johnson TRUSKYN Tru Stroke BeadedIt’s a fairly simple toy. The texture on the inside isn’t anything mind-blowing. If you come from a world of Tenga or Fleshlights (which are fairly more expensive, and are porous), this stroker isn’t going to feel as realistic, or as enjoyable. But I think it’s unfair to compare it with these since they’re an entirely different category.

From using this toy on a male partner, I can say that this stroker is one of the most fun ones to use together. I am a huge fan of mixing activities and taking blow jobs and hand jobs to the next level. Alternating the two, using lots of lube, sucking while stroking, stroking while playing with the balls, adding some vibration on the balls. I like using penis sleeves during play-time. But a bigger and more sophisticated toy such as a Tenga Flip Hole, or a Fleshlight, or the Fun Factory Cobra Libre can be really uncomfortable for me to use on a partner (as well as for a guy to use on themselves: I don’t know if you’ve touched a Fleshlight, but these things are enormous and super heavy). So something lighter, smaller, simpler, easy to operate, or just toss around — like the Tru Stroke Beaded — brings new sensations to the table but doesn’t feel clumsy or cumbersome.

Another feature of this sleeve is that it’s not too long and actually leaves the head of the penis outside of the toy (again, that depends on the length of the cock), so it can be easily combined with a blowjob and teasing the penis head with the tongue. The open side of the toy alongside the shaft is bare too; if you have the opening at the bottom, you can lick the frenulum of the penis (that little piece of skin on the bottom where the head of the penis meets the shaft), which is really sensitive and receptive to flickering with your tongue or to vibration.

Doc Johnson TRUSKYN Tru Stroke Beaded

The Tru Stroke Beaded stroker even comes with a storage bag and 1 oz of lube included. The lube sample has glycerin, so I’d pick a better lube from Peepshow toys (which only sell glycerin-free intimate products).

The feedback that I’ve received from my partner is that The Tru Stroke Beaded definitely feels better than just using hands for masturbation, but feels less like actually having intercourse than some penis toys. He personally is totally freaked out by “skin” tones of toys (including dildos), not to mention that the only skin tone that Doc Jonson offers is “vanilla”. But luckily, they have a red version of the toy as well. Apart from the look of the toy, he really enjoyed using it. And if you have any doubts whether a silicone masturbator is for you, don’t forget that the silicone they use has a softer and more squishy feel than regular silicone dildos do.

Tips for using the toy

Always warm up a masturbation sleeve before use. Regardless of the material, these things tend to feel cooler than body temperature (and that can spoil the mood, feel really unpleasant or even cost you your erection for a while). Putting it in a bowl of warm water does the trick, or just running some hot water from the sink over it. Always use lube with sleeves and strokers in order to avoid chafing and too much friction. It also feels more enjoyable and natural.

Doc Johnson TRUSKYN Tru Stroke BeadedThere is no such thing as “too many” when it comes to sex toys. Feel free to use other types of toys alongside it: vibration on the balls, a cock ring, a vibrating cock ring, a butt plug, a prostate massager. The more the merrier. Adding more sensations can completely up your solo sex game.

Strokers are also great for building stamina and learning about your orgasm, when your point of no return comes, and when to slow down in order to last longer. Strokers are by no means toys just for sexually active people, and they can absolutely be used by penis-owners who are virgin to partnered sex. They’re also a great way to postpone intercourse, if you have a partner who’s not ready to have sex but you like playing together and giving each other pleasure without going all the way.

Last words

I am thrilled that there’s a new affordable stroker on the market that’s body-safe and can fit different penis-sizes. In fact, Doc Johnson even released two of these, there’s a ribbed version of this penis stroker, called The Tru Stroke Ribbed, that also retails for $19. You can get both from Peepshow Toys. I think you can’t go wrong with any of these. They’re a great way of figuring out whether you like strokers and they’re an inexpensive purchase that can give you an idea whether they bring something extra during masturbation or as part of partnered sex.

“The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex” Book Review

The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex Jenny Block

Why Talk about Masturbation?

Sex ed and I go back a long way. When I embraced sex ed as an actual career choice, one of the things I knew I needed to talk about and advocate for was masturbation, and especially female masturbation. Okay, okay, I get it: I am perfectly aware that probably most of you can’t see why masturbation would need advocates in the first place. Isn’t masturbation the most natural thing that everyone does with their own bodies? Isn’t masturbation one of the few things that cannot be taken away from us? It is, or at least it should be. But it’s not “given” to us to begin with. Our parents, teachers, and friends don’t even talk about it, religion deems it a sin, and movies and popular culture don’t give us any positive role models of strong women doing it.

If we see any characters on screen or print who are engaging in solo sex, they’re usually “caught” doing it. The way masturbation is represented in media is always as a punchline, it’s scripted to lead to a whole list of ridiculous and laughable things that happen next. Masturbation is either for desperate and pathetic women, or for horny guys who can’t get laid. That’s what movies and magazines tell us. We’re taught to make fun of and laugh at someone for being caught with their pants down. That’s the presence of self-pleasure in our society, and these are the stereotypes we’re brainwashed with on a daily basis.

I am sure, most of you get it: masturbation is great for you (if you’re already reading this, if you’re on this website, you are probably someone who’s at least curious and wants to explore self love and self pleasure). But why would you need to read a whole book on solo sex? Because undoing all the damage from our childhood years, puberty and young adulthood doesn’t happen overnight. Because these is too much stigma and shame in our society, and the scars and wounds we all have need work and effort to be healed. I think taking the time to read a book of female solo sex is a radical act of self-care and of standing up for oneself. Because you deserve to reflect on it, evaluate your experiences, and actively think about masturbation.

The Author

Jenny Block is the author of O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm and Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage, and she frequently contributes to The Huffington Post, Your Tango, Playboy, Ask Men and many other places. If you want to find out more about the author, I highly recommend you visit her website. She is a feminist sex educator, writer, and speaker, and if I were you, I would make sure to attend some of her workshops and live events whenever she’s in town!

About Solo Sex

Most people don’t know much about the female anatomy of pleasure, because not so long ago we used to deem clitoral orgasm immature, and call it not a “real” orgasm. We’ve all felt incomplete and broken for not being able to climax from penis in vagina sex. Even I didn’t know about the internal structure of the clitoris until a couple of years ago. Nobody gave us the memo. We’re all mostly in the dark. Most vulva-owners cannot experience it solely from penetration. Jenny Block explains why that is in this VIDEO. There is nothing wrong with you if you need more than thrusting in and out.

But what’s even more sad is that most people don’t give themselves permission to explore their bodies, what they like and don’t like, what works for them and what doesn’t. And this is where masturbation steps in. It’s the ultimate way of improving your partnered sex life. But that’s not even the main point. I know all of us feel this pressure of performing, of being a better lover, of being great in bed. But the truth is, you should be your best lover. And you should masturbate for yourself. You are good enough and you deserve pleasure. Period. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you should stop having solo sex.

The Book

dscn2808With a foreword from Betty Dodson, the woman who first started talking openly and publicly about masturbation in the 70s, The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex is going to take you on an emotional and powerful journey into the history and science of masturbation. It’s going to dwell on the personal stories of more than 150 women she interviewed for this book. This collection of experiences and sharing about masturbation is priceless and I don’t think can be found anywhere else in the literature. You are going to be fascinated, moved and maybe even brought to tears hearing these messages. But what you will end up taking home is that you are not alone. You are not a freak. You are normal. There are others out there. Others who struggle, others who have questions, others who don’t have all the answers. Others who are trying to undo the shame their parents or partners have brought upon them.

Jenny’s book offers a number of resources and tips on how to further explore your sexual pleasure, and is going to leave you empowered, ready to make a change and love yourself more.

I highly recommend you get The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex from a small independent bookstore, or even better: a local sex-positive sex store. One of the places where you can find the book is at Good Vibrations. They’ve even started a book club on Goodreads, where Jenny personally answered questions and joined discussions.

Last words

Who is The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex for? I would say every woman: of every age, sexual orientation, or background. But don’t dismiss this book as just a read for women. It will give major insights into female masturbation to everyone who has a female partner, everybody who has a female daughter, or anyone who wants to better understand sexuality and understand female experiences with solo sex.

Eva by Dame Products

Eva by Dame Products

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have to admit this. When I first saw Eva online I laughed my ass off. I thought it was ridiculous, silly and I couldn’t see how it could possibly work. To be true, that happened at a time when I was hugely disappointed in couples’ toys and supposedly hands-free gadgets and their promise of hands-free orgasms. That also occurred at a moment when I knew nothing about the company, nor the research behind Eva.

I had to stand corrected pretty quickly though. Great stores that I support and respect started storing it, and positive reviews from some of my favorite bloggers were popping up. I couldn’t pretend that Eva was laughable and wave it off. It had a stronger and stronger presence in the sex toy world.

Dame Products

One of the first things that changed my opinion about Eva was the company behind it (Short version: Alex and Janet are awesome!) Dame Products is a women-owned business that started with a simple idea. They wanted to solve one problem that many products had tried to before: how to make a vibrator that was unobtrusive, that could be used during sex (not necessarily just penis in vagina intercourse), that fitted well, didn’t get in the way, and complemented sex, instead of steal the thunder. Eva was not meant to replace your partner, it was meant to be used with your partner.

What inspired them was the simple fact that studies show that at least 70% of women don’t have orgasm during intercourse. That doesn’t mean that these women are broken or incapable of experiencing orgasm altogether. Penetration and the stimulation that occurs during intercourse are not what makes women come. For one, penetrative sex doesn’t sufficiently stimulate the clitoris, and the vagina itself has very few nerve endings. The clitoris, on the other hand, has 8,000!

The first generation of the vibrator was thoroughly tested and reviewed by a number of couples who partook in the study and its development. Eva was successfully crowdfunded (it actually raised 1151% of the goal of the campaign). You can find out more about the story behind Eva in this video.

How does it work?

I know that’s the first question that comes to your mind when you see Eva. The vibrator itself is the size of a pebble: the main body of the vibe is roughly 1.3″ by 1.7″. It’s virtually feather light. The little arms or wings of the vibrator are a bit flexible: allowing it to fit a wider range of bodies and sizes. The way you “wear” it is by placing the wings between your inner labia and your outer labia. Dame products have a really comprehensive fitting guide.

The body of the vibrator is placed over the glans of your clitoris, but the little arms of Eva actually carry the vibration too, and that stimulates better the internal parts of your clitoris. At the same time the body of the vibrator, as well as the arms, are completely out of the way of the vaginal opening, so intercourse can happen without removing the vibrator, or having to worry about it getting in the way.

The specifications

Eva by Dame ProductsEva is a rechargeable vibrator that is 100% silicone and it’s entirely body-safe. It comes in two colors, lavender and aqua. The material is matte and very soft. It’s small and light, which makes it as easy to carry around as a bullet vibrator is, and it even comes with a little black storage bag. The toy has three speeds, the lightest one is really non-intimidating and I believe can be used even by people who don’t like direct clitoral vibration and are quite sensitive. Eva actually provides a really broad and pleasant stimulation. If I have to describe it, it would be: a really good balance between pinpoint vibration and broad vibration. The highest speed is actually surprisingly powerful. It has one big button that turns it on and changes the speeds. Which means that you have to cycle through the settings in order to go back to a lower setting, but luckily, Eva has only three modes, so it’s not too much work. I’d rather have one big button that works, even if I have to cycle through them, than have a few tiny buttons that I keep missing or pressing something by mistake. The control button is also not too sensitive, so even in the weirdest sex positions, you don’t end up pressing it by chance and accidentally changing to a different setting. Eva is also shower-proof: you can wash it gently, but you cannot submerge it in water (so don’t take it to the bath tub).

It holds its charge for 60 min on the highest setting and 5 hrs on its lowest. The first time you charge it, you have to puncture the silicone. This feels really wrong and weird, but since at least the angle in which you need to do it is very straightforward, it wasn’t as stressful of an experience as I had with other toys I had to… penetrate with the charger. It also comes with the wall power adapter, not just the USB cable, and this can be handy. It also makes it easy to charge (and take with you) if you’re traveling abroad, because you can charge it either via USB, or just get a wall adapter for the country you will be traveling to.

What can you use it for

Eva by Dame Products

Even though it’s marketed as a couples’ vibrator and it’s great as such, it can be used for all sorts of partnered or solo play. Clearly, you can wear it and have intercourse with it, but it can stay in place and enhance your experience while you give oral sex or a hand job, or while you’re being fingered. It’s great for girl on girl time, because the other partner can grind on it and it can actually work as a great lesbian couples’ toy. If you have a penis-owner as a partner, there are a couple of ways you can both have pleasure without any penetration whatsoever. If your partner’s cock likes vibration, he can place his dick on Eva, while you’re wearing it. Or he can grind his balls on Eva, while receiving a hand job or jerking himself off.

It’s also fantastic for strap-on sex. To be clear, Eva is not the toy you use with the harness. You put the dildo you want to use, but the partner topping with the harness wears Eva as well. And that’s super awesome for pegging or girl on girl strap-on sex, because unless one is using a double ended dildo (like Fun Factory Share), the top usually doesn’t get to feel much or anything at all (besides clearly the joy of bringing pleasure to someone). I am actually really proud of myself for remembering to use it while topping a girl this weekend. It works great with a harness like the Joque by Spareparts, which has a little pocket and holds Eva in place even better. Any other panties-like harnesses, such as Bella or the Tomboi would do the job equally well.

Eva by Dame ProductsAnd let’s not underestimate it as a great toy for masturbation. I discovered several ways in which Eva gets the job done. One is if I use my hands to press it and wiggle it a little bit, for those who like pressing a vibrator against their clitoris. A hands-free way is humping a pillow or the edge of the mattress. The latter is particularly pleasant when I was wearing Kegel balls as well, or a vibrating egg. A hands-free orgasm was absolutely possible and actually easy to achieve. Eva is also of great help if you want to use fewer hands. For instance, you like clitoral stimulation alongside thrusting with a vaginal vibrator or a dildo. For once I don’t have to use both hands! Eva stays put and you can alternate your hands for using the insertable. That’s a godsend to me, because my hands and arms get tired easily and I tend to prefer longer solo sessions.

The other way I completely adore using Eva is wearing it in my panties, walking around, doing chores, cooking dinner, or doing my Kegels meanwhile. That usually gets me really hot and “ready” for intercourse. On those days when time is really limited (life, job, kids, the dishes, you know) and I just want to jump in bed and have a quickie, but at the same time, I want to be sufficiently aroused before going at it.

Experiences

DSCN9926 - Copy.JPGAs Dame Products recommends, it’s better to try out and experiment with Eva a couple of times alone before introducing it to a partner. When you do, one thing you need to keep in mind is lubrication. In order to stay in, Eva needs your labia to be dry, because friction actually keeps it in place. So you need to be careful with the lube. Either put it inside of your vagina with a lube shooter, use your fingers to get the lube inside, or just lube up the cock or the dildo, instead of placing the lube on your vulva and around your vaginal opening.

Try out different positions. I feel that the positions that worked the best for me were ones in which I had a really close body contact with my partner and our bodies were pressed against each other the most, because that gave Eva most support. In face to face positions the thrusts were rubbing and wiggling it; it felt really good. Same thing applies for strap-on sex. I actually came roughly at the same time the girl I was topping did: the faster I was thrusting, the more Eva was rubbing on my clit. I couldn’t have wished for more.

Things to consider

Eva is a bit loud on the highest setting, to the extent that it can be distracting. Try listening to some music. Overall having a sexy time playlist is always a good idea, but if it can noise out the sounds from the vibrator, that’s even better. Eva can also slip out if lube leaks out of your vagina, or if you’re having a really passionate session with very aggressive and fast thrusting. One tip to always keep it in place is a pair of hot crotchless panties.

Last words

Eva is easily my favorite couples’ toy at this point. Especially at the price-point of $105, which is roughly half the price of the We-Vibe 4 Plus or Sync. It has everything I expect from a toy these days: rechargeable, body-safe, washable. It’s so far #1 in my chart of travel-friendly toys given its size and weight.

You can purchase Eva from Dame Products with a 1-year warranty and free shipping.

The Satisfyer Pro 2 Review

dscn9830

I really badly want to start the review with: everyone should own one. And as cheesy, and salesy as this might sound, I really DO think that…

Everyone should own one.

At this point in my life, I am pretty familiar with my own body, the spectrum of sensations I can experience, and what kind of stimulation leads to them. And it’s not like I am taking this for granted, I am constantly trying new things, products, materials, techniques, positions and I am pushing my own boundaries. So when this toy came out, I was a bit skeptical. Suction? Gentle waves? Pulsation? Na-ah! I was imagining some hugely pointless toy (that a number companies keep coming up with these days). I imagined that it was gonna suck on my clitoris in a way that will leave me screaming in pain, cursing my adventurous spirit of having to try every gadget that comes out. I thought it was either gonna be useless and super disappointing, or super painful and torturous to my clit. And I am already a power queen and often bruise the gentle skin of my vulva and the hood of my clitoris with big and super strong toys such as the Doxy Die Cast. And because I am a masturbation enthusiast (and activist for that matter), I do pleasure myself every day. This leaves my body in a constant state of bangover, chafing, bruises, friction burn and sometimes little tears.

So I definitely didn’t need a catfish sucking on my clit. Or so I thought.

Then a fellow sex toy reviewer wrote a post about the product and it said that it was stellar. So I had to challenge my snap judgments of the toy and give it the benefit of the doubt. But still, more questions kept coming up: why is it so cheap? How is it rechargeable and yet so cheap? It must suck really badly. It has pinpointed suction and pulsations towards only the glands of the clit, not the entire organ, and if it doesn’t vibrate, how is that going to stimulate the rest of the clitoris to make me reach an orgasm?

Ladies and gentleman, I do not have the answer of any of these questions. Why, how, how come… It simply works.

By the time when Peepshowtoys, one of the sex-positive and responsible stores I support, offered me to review the Satisfyer of their behalf, I couldn’t say “YES” fast enough.

The Store

The delivery from Peepshowtoys.com was really discreet and it was shipped from “Hamilton Electronics”. So your secret is safe. Your mailman, neighbors, or family members aren’t gonna find out about your little secret. Everything was secured with lots of paper, making sure that the item isn’t gonna travel around in the box during its journey to your house. And that’s key when it comes to vibrators or toys that have electronics in them.

You often see me say “sex-positive, responsible, providing education”, when I talk about the stores that I like and recommend. That’s not a “I like you, I don’t like him, you’re my friend, John isn’t, let’s not play with him” kind of thing. I have very strict criteria when it comes to stores that I endorse. Do they sell crappy, porous or toxic toys? Do they sell unsafe anal toys with no flared base? Do they have a blog, write articles, provide education to their customers? Do they sell lubricants that contain glycerin? That kind of thing. And Peepshowtoys have scored great on all of these. Not only that, but they’re really nice and helpful, they answer your questions and are present on social media, trying to create a good experience for every customer. I couldn’t ask for more.

The Product

dscn9829The Satisfyer Pro 2 looks weird(ish) and unlike almost anything else out there simply because it’s not a vibrator. It has a long handle, which is very comfortable to use and makes holding it in place really easy (and that’s crucial for this toy in particular). It has two buttons, far from each other, which make accidentally turning it off impossible. When you need to turn it on or off, you will have to hold the smaller button. The bigger oval one is controlling the speed. One criticism I have of the one button only thing is that it doesn’t have a plus or minus option. Sometimes you wanna go back and tone things down. But some of my fave vibes (We-Vibe Touch) have the same “fluke”: they only go one way because they only have one button as well. BUT (!!!) this one at least doesn’t start over when you reach the highest setting. It doesn’t go from 11 back to zero. When you reach the most powerful program, it starts “counting back”. 11-10-9… So you can slowly scale down.

What is it made of and what does it do? The body of the toy is ABS plastic and the attachment that makes contact with your clitoris is silicone, so it’s entirely body-safe and non-porous. It’s water-proof (and delicious in the tub, but more on that later), it’s rechargeable (via a magnetic charger that it comes with), and has 11 speeds! What I love about it is that it’s super lightweight, and ergonomic to hold and use… and it’s not a freaking 100 or 200 bucks.

What it does is a gentle suction and pulsations around your clit at the same time. Yes, we are talking only of the glans and the hood of the clit. The little “mouth” of the toy needs to be placed around your clitoris. So the silicone attachment embraces it all around. Try putting some lube that lets you keep even better the light vacuum that the suction makes. And as I mentioned: it can be used underwater. Having it in the tub is definitely different and really delightful. I can’t say better or worse, because it performs really well and reliably in both air and water. One totally cute thing is that when you’re done with it in the bath, it will just float on top of the water. Like a little rubber duck. For adults. Didn’t I say it was super light?

And because it uses suction, well… I HAD to try it on my nipples. People, this isn’t some super hard and painful suction. This is not a BDSM nipple suction toy. If you are looking for pain, you’re not going to find it here. But it feels really good and as close to someone delightfully sucking on my tits as I’ve experienced from a toy. Especially when lubricated. And it’s not too overwhelming, even for the most sensitive of breasts.

At Use

Satisfyer Pro 2There’s a little bit of a learning curve to this toy because what it does to your body is entirely different from anything else that you might’ve used before (unless you have the Womanizer). So there’s definitely a short moment of “is this doing anything for me”. It was really short for me, but it will take every person different amount of time to get off with it. Just within a few minutes Satisfyer Pro 2 starts feeling good… and then really good… and then it might make you cum out of nowhere, because it stimulates parts of your clit that are usually overlooked, so your body-response is going to be different from what you have from vibration. Nothing vibrates on it, and that means that the handle doesn’t either. Yay, no numb fingers anymore! Your arm and hand could get tired for an entirely different reason though. In order to keep the suction and have the toy work and be perfectly placed where you need it to be, you have to hold it in one place. Sometimes a little bit of movement breaks the suction. It’s easy to get back on track, or sometimes this leads to using it in a slightly different position that feels as good or even better.

And what I love about the orgasms with it is that they’re… easy. But what I mean by easy is that they don’t tire my entire PC muscles, it doesn’t make me cramp, it doesn’t leave me depleted. It’s just like having an orgasm, but not having gone through all the “work” and contractions of having one. (Boy I hope this makes sense.) It’s like: I just came, now I am refreshed, energized and can get shit done. Moving forward with my life. Versus: Oh boy, I will need to take a nap after this one.

Cons

The only thing that can be a deal breaker for some people is that Satisfyer Pro 2 cannot be easily used with some vaginal stimulation at the same time. You can’t have intercourse while using the toy and using a dildo and thrusting in and out will break the vacuum and it will move your entire vulva and body with it, making maintaining a constant contact between the Satisfyer and your clit impossible. But on the other hand, if you just need some fullness in your vagina while having the clitoral stimulation, you can either have a vaginal egg or balls in, or you can have a dildo in, but mainly squeeze it with your vag muscles, instead of thrusting with it.

One thing is the battery. It takes 2 and a half hours to charge, for only 30 min of play. They actually say “Usage period: approx. 30min” in the manual. What they mean by that is probably how long the battery can hold. I sincerely hope they’re not telling you how long you should be using it. That’s none of their goddamn business. I haven’t tested the 30 min thing, because I usually use it for anything between 15 and 25 and just plug it in right away, because… Ghosts of depleted batteries are chasing me in my nightmares. Toys must be charged! Who knows when the mood will strike.

And the big question… How loud is it? Well, it gets loud. LOUD. The thing is, that just in the air, by itself, it’s very loud when turned on. But once in place and using the suction, it is much quieter. It’s still fairly noisy even then, especially on settings higher that 5 or 6 (out of 11). I think it’s most quiet underwater. It doesn’t sound like a vibe though. It sounds like a hydro pump or something.

In conclusion

As I said, I think every vulva-owner should have one. The way everyone should have a vibrator. I think its pros waaaaaay outnumber the few cons that I’ve come across.

And it’s so affordable! It sells for $59.99 (and that’s without my 10% off code) at Peepshowtoys and they offer free shipping on orders over $70.
