How to Have Kinky Sex on The Road

In case you missed my bragging about it, I spent the best part of my summer at Sex Geek Summer Camp with Reid Mihalko and a whole bunch of amazing Sex Geeks.

What made camp such an unforgettable experience for me was having the opportunity to work and exchange ideas with other inspiring sex educators, coaches and counselors. Here is the love-child of one of these interactions. When I heard that Kat Nantz (Sexual Empowerment Coach from Guelph, Ontario) had spent 6 months in a camper, crossing the United States with her boyfriend, and that they didn’t have to sacrifice their hot and kinky sex life, I had to hear more about it.

Find out how to make your own solar panel and plug in your Hitachi Magic Wand or recharge your toys on the go, how to do bondage and enjoy rope play even if you are confined to a small RV. Learn why taking Uberlube with you is a must, how to practice safer sex, how to have your toys clean and sterile, how to know your STI status even if you’re thousands of miles away from your health provider, and more in this fun and candid video.

 

And if you have SEX GEEK t-shirt envy, just get over with it and order yours already.

Key Comet II Wand vs. Njoy Pure Wand Review

Key Comet II Wand vs. Njoy Pure WandWand Wars

How about reviewing on two of the most notorious g-spot wands? Yes, I am going to try to help you pick one. That’s ballsy, isn’t it?

But, wait, Wetlandia, why are you making us pick just one? – one might ask. Because, dear reader, probably most of us can’t toss around hundreds of dollars on sex toys. Especially when we WANT THEM ALLMaybe you are lucky enough that you can buy them both at once. But most people would prefer to spend that amount of money on a g-spot wand and, say, a butt plug, instead of on two g-spot toys. And let’s face it: these two guys are somewhat similar. See what I mean?

Even from first sight of their big round and bulky heads one can tell that they’re great for g-spot stimulation. And they’ve been received equally positively by the sex blogger community. There are tens of reputable bloggers who’ve written about them and who absolutely love them. Which makes the task of choosing just one even more frustrating, because upon reading separate reviews of the two, you are mainly gonna run into reasons why to buy each of them, but little comparison.

How are they alike?

The Comet Wand and the Pure Wand are famous for making women squirt. If that’s what you’re looking for, rest assured, these two are going to deliver. They’re both very ergonomic: their design is just perfect for g-spot stimulation. No need for you to have your hands in a weird position in order to reach in, or get the right angle. They’re made really easy for both solo and partnered use. Both toys are made of body-safe materials (silicone vs. stainless steel), which are easy to sanitize, easy to store, and really low maintenance. What I found out though, is that their similarities end right here.

How are they different?

Material

What are the properties of the material of the Njoy Pure Wand? It has as close to “no drag” as it gets. It’s absolutely perfect in its sleekness. That has a little bit of a downside to it: if any lube or bodily fluid gets on the end that you’re holding, it’s gonna get too slippery for whoever is holding it and doing the thrusting. Keep some tissues nearby if you are switching ends, so you can clean up and have a good grip of the toy again. You will need it! The Pure Wand is really heavy because of the stainless steel. I mean heavy. As much as I expected it, it turned out I wasn’t prepared for it at all. It not only makes it difficult for me to hold it or use it on myself or on a female partner, but it also kind of hurts my vag too. If the thrusting is too fast, it can get painful (which is really frustrating, because I want it fast). It’s just too heavy… inside of me. If that makes any sense. Probably there’s a learning curve to it, but we’re just too new of lovers to know each other that well.

Because stainless steel can change its temperature and keep it for a while, temperature play is something you can definitely use the Njoy for. You can make it slightly warmer than the temperature of the body, that really helps arousal, because it will help your circulation. Or you can cool it off for teasing your partner and give them tingling chills. However, if you’re not into temperature play, please check the temperature of the toy before insertion. If you’re in a room that’s, say, 68 F, the toy is gonna be 68 F. Which, believe me, feels cold on your body. A nice way to warm it up to body temp. is to just hold it in your hands, or leave it rest on your belly, or any other body part.

When it comes to lube anything goes with the Njoy. Literally. It’s safe to use it with every kind of lubricant: water-based, hybrid, silicone or oil-based. That makes it easy for play in the bathtub too, because you can use a silicone lube, which is water resistant.

The Comet Wand is almost the opposite of everything that I’ve said in the last paragraph. Luckily, its silicone is matte, so it has just a little bit of drag to it, but not too bad for a silicone toy. And it’s just so, so light. Especially for a rechargeable vibrator. It’s almost never, no matter the speed or the enthusiasm with which it’s been thrust inside of me, hurt me or caused me any pain. The head is very bulky and with the little drag from the material, could be a bit challenging to insert, but that’s as far as discomfort goes. Nothing that can remotely compare to the cramping I have with fierce (or just moderately fierce) in-and-outs with the Njoy. As far as lubrication goes, you have to avoid silicone lubes with the Key. Don’t forget to use plenty of lube before insertion and go really slow. It’s a big boy! Taking it out should happen slowly too, especially if you’ve just come, there’s a chance your muscles will clench around it.

Shape

The Njoy is a double-ended dildo and on this one it beats the Comet Wand. The smaller end of the Pure Wand is a good way to build up the excitement. The thinner end can also be used for prostate stimulation or anal play. Unfortunately as far as the Comet goes, you can’t use the small end, because that’s where the control for the vibration is. And you definitely don’t want any lube or vaginal secretion stuck at the rim of the button. If you wanna get creative, I guess you can cover the small end with a condom, in order to protect the control button, and still go for it with the little end.

Color and packaging

The Comet II Wand comes in blue, lavender and pink (the one featured in the pictures is lavender). It arrives in a modern tasteful box, and comes with a satin black drawstring bag for storage in your closet. The Pure Wand comes in a minimalistic black box, that only has “NJOY” written on it, and has a gorgeous raspberry satin on the inside. It doesn’t have a little pouch or a bag, so storing it might take more space (but you can buy a toy storage bags from Lovehoney for $3-4). In my opinion both toys have too ambiguous of a shape, for you to be worried that your kids might figure out what they are for, if they happen to discover them.

Vibration

If there’s one thing that makes these two toys fundamentally different, that’s the vibration. The earlier model of the Comet was a dildo with virtually the same shape, not a vibrator, and it was still as glorious. And after all, nobody will make you use the vibration unless you like it. But it’s nice to have the option. You might be surprised. I didn’t think that I cared much for internal vibrations until I started using the Comet Wand simultaneously with a clit external vibrator. And it totally rocked my world. It gave me these beautiful, world-shattering blended orgasms. How do I achieve them? In the weirdest possible way. Comet Wand – in, steady vibration on, Hitachi Magic Wand Original on my clit. That’s some intense sh*t, you guys! Not to mention that because of the big head and the comfy handle, the Comet II is actually good as an external vibe too. People who know me well can second that: I don’t travel anywhere without my Comet. It became my all-time-favorite toy. I am completely addicted to it.

The vibrations: it offers several different patterns, some of which are actually quite nice, but I am not a pattern-girl. So I am not going to be able to ever appreciate any vibrator’s patterns. That’s just me. One downside to the Comet, is that it doesn’t have power settings. It’s just either the steady vibration or the patterns, but no way of controlling the speed. I would say that the vibration is good and powerful enough. Deep and rumbly. There are definitely much better vibes out there, but for that price and that unique shape, I think it’s pretty good. It’s loud, but definitely not extremely loud. Or maybe I just went deaf from the Hitachi and everything else compared to it is quiet. Oh well, that’s a price I am willing to pay for those blended orgasms. Seriously, the pros outnumber the cons.

It’s 100% waterproof and the battery is rechargeable. Comes with a USB magnetic charger. And the battery lasts really long. Sometimes I would use it for hours a day, and it wouldn’t die on me. It comes with 1 year warranty, which you have to register at Jopen.com, so don’t throw away the box until you do so.

Keep in mind

There are a couple of things one has to be cautious about with both toys. Because of where the power button is located on the Comet, you might accidentally turn it off right in the middle of… well, when you least want it to shut down on you. Sometimes one can get carried away (blushing) and depending on how hard you’re holding onto the handle, you can turn the toy off. Note: it doesn’t take one short pressing the button to turn it on and off. You have to hold the control continuously for several seconds. Pressing it once shortly only changes the patterns. But both are unpleasant if you happen to do it unintentionally and you were sooo close to climaxing. And it’s happened to me a number of times, so I don’t think it was just a one-time mistake.

As far as the Pure Wand goes, it can accidentally “just” crack your head open. I am not kidding. It’s a big steel dildo. If you happen to lose track of its location in your love nest, and get thrown on the bed or change positions, you can really hurt whichever part of your body happens to land on it. So always keep in mind where you left it. I would just leave it on the nightstand, when not using it, don’t let it dangle in the sheets with you. It’s a hazard.

Price 

Both toys are eligible for free shipping with most sex-positive retailers. The prices I am quoting are the cheapest among the good and responsible sex stores. If you have another store of preference, feel free to buy for them or check out other stores I recommend in my “Where to Buy” page. At SheVibe the Key Comet Wand II is priced at $79, but just until the end of August 2016 all Jopen brands are 15% off, so you can have it at the unbelievable $68! The Njoy Pure Wand costs $99. Do not buy it from Amazon. It’s the most copied product on the market. The world is flooded with counterfeit Njoys, made with cheaper and unsafe metals.

In conclusion

Which one did I pick back in the day, when I had to choose just one? I personally picked the Comet wand. And now owning them both I stand behind this decision. Don’t get me wrong, the Pure Wand is an amazing, versatile toy that’s probably gonna outlive you. But as an everyday, easy to transport, easy to use, has a vibration as well, the Comet Wand wins me on its team. Whichever one you choose, you won’t be disappointed. So, relax, you are not making a terrible mistake and you are NOT wasting your money.

Note: The Key Comet II Wand is a toy from my private toy collection. The Njoy Pure Wand was given to me as a sponsor gift at Reid Mihalko‘s Sex Geek Summer Camp. Huge “thank you” to Reid and to NJOY Toys!
