Soju Sugar Drop-Sexiest

The Soju Sugar Drop is a sexy piece of silicone, and I don’t say that to all my toys. It’s got a modern shape that reminds me of a ray gun, and even comes with a clear acrylic stand, should you feel like leaving your toy out on display. The Sugar Drop has 5 fabulous colour choices (including LIME GREEN!), and is 100% Silicone. Cleaning is the usual hassle free option wiping it down with soap and water or a toy cleaner. Sterilizing can be achieved by boiling it, wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution. Remember to only use water based lubes, or your Sugar Drop can melt! (Well, maybe not melt exactly, but silicone toys can have adverse reactions to silicone lubes, so I wouldn’t risk it.)

The Sugar Drop has a gently rounded point on one end, widening gently to a thick point in the middle, then tapering off to a flat handle at the other end. It’s 8 1/2″ long from end to end, with a 6 1/2″ inch insertable length. At the widest point in the middle of the insertable portion, it has a diameter of 1 5/8″, so you may want to give it a pass if you prefer your toys to be on the slender side. I Unlike the Lelo Ella, the flattened end is not for insertion. I’ve read that some reviewers have been able to insert both ends and got good g-spot stimulation with the flat end, but it’s not something that worked well with my internal anatomy. The angles were wrong and I found the edges of the handle part of the to be irritating, as they felt almost sharp upon insertion! There’s also a seam down the middle of the toy, which can’t be felt in use, but is definitely visible.

When it comes to use, the Sugar Drop isn’t quite what I was hoping for. It does rub against my G-spot when I thrust with it, but it’s more of a tease than the firm pressure I need to squirt. The bubble texture on the side of the shaft is also not what I had expected! In the pictures on Edens Fantasies, they seem like a cute accent, but in use, they are irritating to the point that I need to use tons of lube with it (and I never use lube for vaginal toy use, given how naturally wet I am). They rub against my labia and my inner walls, and it goes from ‘Ooh, yay, a bit of texture.’ to ‘Oh gods, oh gods, it feels like sandpaper.’ very quickly. The handle does works well with a partner, although it’s not long enough to make sure that they won’t get come all over their hands, so gloves might be a good idea if the person you’re using the Sugar Drop on isn’t fluid bonded with you.

I had hoped to like the Sugar Drop a lot more than I did, however, the wonky texture and lack of G-spot stimulation just doesn’t do it for me. It’s been sitting mostly unloved in my toy box the last few months, and while I occasionally take it out and try again, I’m considering passing it on to one of my pay partners. Sorry, Sugar! You’re just not the one for me.

Lovehoney’s Sqweel 2

The Squeel 2 is a weird looking toy, there’s no getting around this, so I thought I’d get it out of the way at the start of this review. This is what you would get if an arcade game character, a water wheel, and a futuristic sex toy had a pink and white (or pink and black) baby. If you like your sex toys to be unique and look as though they’d be Tank Girl’s first choice for jacking off, this is definitely for you.

While I haven’t tried the original Sqweel, the Sqweel 2 packaging boasts that it has more power than the original, has 10 ‘tongues’ made of silicone rather than a porous material, and has ‘exciting flicker mode’. I’m glad that I’m review this and not the original, as a Sqweel with less power than this would make me a very sad and probably orgasm-less Pixel.

The sound of the Sqweel is a bit whiny. It’s also fairly loud, to the point that I’d want the bedroom door closed as well as music playing to cover the sound of it if I had to worry about housemates. When I’m just using it by myself, I grab my sound cancelling headphones and use either porn or music to drown out the whine. This may be because of the
There are variable speeds, 3 of them, and you are able to change the direction the Sqweel spins as well as activate a ‘flicker mode’. (Am I the only one who feels like this is sounds like a glitchy version of ‘stealth mode’? You’d be ninja-ing along, when all of a sudden, your camouflage flashes off, then on again?) I usually only use the third speed, and very rarely mess around with the flicker mode. There’s a pause in the flicking that just ends up annoying me, rather than getting me off. I also don’t ever change the direction of the tongues. It just feels weird and uncomfortable to me to have it rotating the opposite way.

The tongues are really pink. I don’t think my picture conveys just how violently, pepto pink they are. They’re silicone and have some seriously drag to them. It’s not as much drag as, say, kitty tongue, but you’re going to want to use a fair bit of lube with this to make your clit and labia not feel abused. I prefer to use a thicker lube with the Sqweel 2, and applied it to my clit and labia before I even turned on the toy. Sliquid Sassy worked well for me, but if you prefer a thinner lube, any water based one will do!

Cleaning is a bit of a pain in the butt. Lube and fluids get all over and in this thing, and having to do a thorough clean up after each use is a must. You have to break down the Sqweel to clean it, and wipe the case down really well because you’ll have spattered stuff all up in that. Luckily, opening the case is easy. You just slide the locking mechanism on the side, pop it apart, and pull out the rotating bit. You have to wipe the inside down, as it’s not sealed, and you don’t want to corrode the batteries by accident. (The batteries, by the way, are 3 AAAs.) The tongue part can be cleaned the normal way-10% bleach, soap and water, or boiling.

I’ve heard horror stories of the Sqweel ripping stray pubes out, and I can neither confirm or deny this, as I like to keep things waxed or well trimmed, and wasn’t willing to go for the disco bush look just to try to dispel that particular sex toy urban myth. I didn’t have any issues with the tongues grabbing at my outer labia piercings either-I have 4, and they have curved barbells in them, for frame of reference.

This doesn’t feel like oral sex to me, but then, I don’t feel like anything can actually compare to having your partner going down on you. Sex toys ARE NOT replacements for humans. Seriously. They’re not your ‘battery operated boyfriend’ or ‘teehee, going to replace hubby’, they’re toys. (Sorry, pet peeve!) That being said, it does feel really good. I was honestly a bit shocked that I was able to orgasm from using the Sqweel, as I’m not normally able to orgasm from oral sex. I need either penetration or vibration to get off.

When I use a vibrator, I tend to press it against my clit, and the pressure seems to help get me off faster. With the Sqweel, I can’t do that. If I press it against me too hard, it makes the engine whine and slow down, which is the exact opposite of what I want it to do. However, the sensations from the tongues against my clit were fast/strong enough to.

I offered to try this out on my boyfriend’s cock, but he took one took at the tongues spinning and started laughing hysterically, so you’ll have to go elsewhere to find a male perspective on the Sqweel, sorry.

Overall, this is a cool toy to add to your collection. Sure, it’s not going to work for everyone, but not all toys do. If you’re looking for something that’s sorta similar to oral sex, you can try this out, but I maintain that it’s not the same. It does, however, feel fucking awesome in it’s own way.

Jopen’s Key Comet G

I’ve not been a fan of Jopen before now. I know, blasphemy. But the Vanity line was completely done in a neon fushica purple with no variation, and the Intensity was pink and both were out of my price range. With the Key line, Jopen’s toned down their ‘all pink all the time’ stance, and lowered the prices. While the new line is still ‘luxury’, it’s much more affordable, and they come in more colours now (Pink, purple, teal, and an awesome shade of blue.). That’s some classy tequila right there. The toy ain’t bad either.

Eden sent me the Key Comet G by Jopen to review, and I was utterly thrilled. I’d been lusting after it ever since I caught a press release for the line, because it looked like it would make my g-spot happy, and I was so very right. By now, I’m pretty sure everyone has compared this to the Pure Wand, and guess what? I’m going to do it too. Don’t worry, Pure Wand, I still love you. I’m just have a bit of a dirty affair with the G Wand. I’ll come back to you, really! What we have, it’s *real*.

The differences between the Comet G and Pure Wand are fairly noticeable. The Comet G is made of glass, with the lower 2/3rds of the shaft dipped in silicone. The handle has a small silver medallion stuck to one side of the handle’s grip. The shape of the Comet G is more of a ‘J’, rather than the Pure Wand’s semi-circle. There’s also a huge weight difference between the two. Stainless steel is a lot heavier then glass and silicone. Also, the Pure Wand tapers dramatically after the balls on either end. The Comet G’s shaft is thicker overall, and I actually like it a bit better for that reason. I tend to clench really hard when I orgasm, and with the Pure Wand it’s almost uncomfortable to do that because there’s so little to.

Just because it’s being compared to the Pure Wand doesn’t mean this toy isn’t awesome in it’s own right. I love the silicone. It’s got a bit of drag, so I usually put some water based lube on it before I use it. The drag to the silicone does mean that the bulb will feel a bit larger than it is. There’s also a ridge running down the side of the toy, but I didn’t find the texture to be really noticeable while I was using it. For me, it’s decorative, rather than functional. But if you’re really sensitive to texture, this may not be for you. I do love that the ridges start in the glass and are continued into the silicone…it’s a unique touch and makes the piece look more finished.

The Comet G isn’t a huge toy. The end measures 1.5 inches, which is the same as the Pure Wand’s larger ball. End to end it’s about 8 inches, which isn’t that long, either. The length is one of the few places I have an issue with the Comet G, though. I have short arms (I’d love for you to think of me as a T-Rex, but with multicoloured hair, freckles, and cleavage that doesn’t stop for days), and chronic pain/occasional mobility issues. That means there’s going to be days I’m not going to be able to use this on myself to thrust, as the short length means I have to stretch my arms or twist in a way that’s going to make me hurt worse or in new ways. Of course, there’s always the option to delegate to my mate, and I have taken advantage of willing partners before. Just be clear in your communication with your partner when they’re using a toy on you! Angles change, and with a harder toy like the Comet G, accidentally thrusting too hard or hitting the wrong place is possible.

So far, my favourite way to get off with the Comet G has been to sit down at my computer desk chair with the head of the toy inside me and use a vibrator on my clit at the same time. I can rock in the chair to change the angle of the toy on my g-spot, and the constant pressure is amazing. It makes it easier on me, because again, T-Rex arms, and can tweak my wrist or shoulder sometimes to jack off using the handle of this toy.

Cleaning is a bit different with this toy than a straight up silicone or glass toy. The silver emblem on the handle is glued on, and boiling or putting this toy through the dishwasher could wreck it. I suggest sticking with a 10% bleach solution or just washing with antibacterial soap and water.

I’m definitely a fan of the Key Comet G. The design is sleek, the material combination unique, and I’m glad that Jopen is branching out!

Fun Factory Teneo Duo

I just recently joined the Good Vibrations review program, and one of my first picks of toys to review was the fun Factory Teneo Duo. I own the Teneo Uno and really enjoyed it (until the retrieval cord snapped, that is) and wanted to see how the Duo compared. I really wanted to give these cute vaginal exercisers a second chance to impress me, and I’m glad I did.

The Teneo Duo are a pair of of brightly coloured and textured kegel exercisers. The Teneo Duo come in some fabulous colour choices, including orange, green, turquoise, purple, as well as various pinks and black. I kinda want one in every colour! When used regularly, they’re supposed to improve vaginal muscle tone and make orgasms better/stronger.

The Duo come in the usual Fun Factory packaging, which I like. It’s cute, I love the magnetic closure, and is fairly discreet. The cardboard is sturdy, and while it could definitely be used for long term storage, I found it more convenient to keep the Teneo Duo tucked in a cloth bag in my dresser. The packaging included a sample of Toyfluid, Fun Factory’s water based lube. (Toyfluid does contain glycerin, so be careful using it if you have sensitivities.)

The length of the two balls together is 4 1/2 inches, with the tail taking the total length to 7 1/2 inches. They measure 1 1/2 inches in diameter, so if you’re not used to larger toys, these might be a tight fit. There’s small weighted beads inside, that you can feel when you roll the toy in your hands, or when they’re inside you!

In use, the Duo are pretty awesome. For me, unless I am turned on beforehand, it is a bit tight to get both balls in. Lube helps! Just make sure to use a water based lube, as silicone or oil may damage your toy. Also, I found that if I use too much lube, it makes it harder to keep the Duo in. There’s a notch on top of the ball closest to the tail to help with insertion (yay ergonomic design!), and it does make things a bit easier. For me, the best positions for getting them in was to either be lying flat on my back, or to be standing with on leg up and resting on the side of the tub. To take them out, make sure you have relaxed your muscles as much as possible, or try ‘pushing’ them out as you pull on the retrieval cord. I learned the hard way that the cord will snap if you are still clenching around the toy when you try to remove it. (It was a sad day for me. Boo.)

Having these inside me was definitely arousing, and I was hyper-aware of them for about the first half hour, but soon relaxed and stopped noticing as much unless I did something that would set the small balls inside moving. (such as running down some stairs or bouncing.) Then I would go back to being very aware of them for a time before relaxing again. This may be because I am used to using a menstrual cup, or just because my brain decided that I didn’t need to deal with that much stimulation for an extended period and decided to ignore it. I also produce a lot of extra lubrication while I had the Duo inside me, to the point that wearing a pantyliner was a good idea if I didn’t feel like dealing with damp underwear all day.

They have an interesting texture to them…it’s criss-crossed bands that I imagine are they for your vaginal muscles to get a better grip on. However, this texture can make it a bit of a pain in the arse to clean this toy thoroughly. Come and lube like to hide in the little creases, and I usually end up having to scrub them with an old toothbrush to get them entirely clean. To sterilize your toy, you can use antibacterial soap and water, a 10% bleach solution, or even boil these, as they’re made of silicone.

I’ve been using the Duo for about a month now, and while I haven’t noticed my orgasms getting any stronger (which may be a good thing, to be honest. I occasionally pass out for a few seconds if they’re strong enough already!), I’ve definitely noticed that my body will clench down harder on toys if I’m using them to thrust as I come. I’ll have to see if I can get some feedback from my Master the next time he comes to town. For purely scientific purposes, that is. *grin*

Good Vibrations Rippler

I have a thing for green toys. Pink and purple vibrators are so boring, overdone and girly…I don’t understand why more companies don’t embrace the unisex awesomeness of green. When Good Vibrations offered me a chance to review their Rippler, I may have made a noise so high pitched only dogs could hear it and begged Mandi for one of the green ones (it also comes in a metallic purple and black). She was awesome, and sent one my way. <3 The silicone of the Rippler is gorgeous. It has a metallic sheen to it and looks like a piece of malachite that has been sculpted into a stunning dildo. *loves* It has some pliability to it, and you can bend it straight fairly easily. There isn’t much give to it, though, so you feel all of the ridges and bumps. This silicone is really shiny, so it does tend to pick up Every. Single. Piece. of cat hair/dust/whatever in the room if you set it down for a second, so storing it in it’s original packaging or a bag would be best unless you feel like washing your toy before and after playing. Speaking of packaging, I loved Good Vibes packaging! It was a simple plastic clamshell with a shiny cardboard insert. Definitely not discreet, as you can see the toy through it, but much more appealing to me than half naked women posed provocatively all over it. Basic care instructions were printed on the insert, as well as info about the toy. The Rippler is a girthy toy, and definitely not for the novice toy user. It measures 7 ¼ inches long and is 1 5/8 inches diameter at it’s thinnest point and 1 7/8 inches at it’s thickest. I don’t have small hands (yay, Irish/German peasant bloodlines!), but my thumb and middle finger can barely touch each other when I wrap my hand around the base. Add the incredible texture to that and you have a seriously epic dildo. I could probably bludgeon someone unconscious with this if I tried. Why yes, I do evaluate my sex toys at potential weapons, why do you ask? The texture to the Rippler is definitely unique. It has a semi realistic phallic shaped head, and ‘V’s running down it’s length on the underside. The front/top has 6 raised and slightly curved bands on it. I love the look of the bottom pattern though…it reminds me of the simplistic Christmas trees I’d draw as a kid. Well, either that or some sort of alien cock, which can make for some smokin’ hot abduction fantasies. Want to be probed repeatedly by a not-so-little green man? This is definitely the dildo for you. The base also works fairly well as a suction cup, as I found out when I was cleaning it. It sticks to smooth surfaces (like counter tops and the side of the tub) when the base is wet, and required me using two hands to pull it free! I couldn’t get it to stick to the wall, though. Because this toy is made of pure silicone, you’re going to want to only use a water based lube with it, as the silicone can react negatively with your toy. For cleaning, it’s the usual options. You can wash it with antibacterial soap and water, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution, boil it, or put it through the dishwasher. I’m a fan of textured toys, so the Rippler and I got along very well. The girth was a bit intimidating at first, but once I warmed up with my Hitachi and a smaller toy I was good to go. The bands on the top were nice, but not the texture I was looking for. It does really well for g-spot play when used this way, though-the raised bands felt awesome rubbing against my g-spot! Because the ripples are all on the bottom of the toy, I didn’t find they were very noticeable during thrusting unless I turned the toy upside-down or was using it doggy-style. Woof! This definitely is not for the faint of heart or pussy! You can feel every single ridge as it rubs against you, and it’s really intense. I wanted to try this in my strap-on harness with my girlfriend, as she’s also a fan of textured toys, but the O-ring I have was too small. (Fortunately, Good Vibrations sells O-rings of various sizes.) I was feeling exceptionally adventurous this week and decided to attempt using the Rippler anally so my review could be a bit more through. It is a fair bit larger and much more textured than my normal toys, so I was more than a little intimidated, but I’m glad I decided to experiment. With the combination of girth plus length, I could only manage to take a few of the ripples, but they were a really intense sensation. This isn’t something I see myself using anally on a regular basis, but it’s definitely a unique experience I think I will find myself craving more in the future. I adore the Rippler in all it’s textured glory. It’s filling and is perfect for the days I want more from my toys…more girth, more sensation, more everything! I give it 5 paws up out of 5!

Sinclair Institute’s Glass Crystal G-Spot Wand

The colour green is one of my favourites. Neon, emerald, kelly green, any shade really. I love them all. Sadly, in the sex toy industry, green is a colour that is apparently isn’t cool. Most companies seem to think that women will only use a toy if it’s a ‘non threatening’ shade like pink or purple. Luckily, some toy companies offer other colour options, and I may have squeed a little when I saw the gorgeous mint green detailing on the Glass Crystal G-Spot Wand.

The G-Spot Wand isn’t a terribly large piece, as it measures 6 inches across from tip to tip. The shape is this odd almost a semi-circle/ the letter ‘J’, with three bloops on the more curved end. It’s also fairly thin, at only 1.25 inches diameter. The toy is clear, with really beautiful and delicate twining vine details in green. I absolutely love the way this toy looks! It’s gorgeous, and I want to leave it out on my desk where I can occasionally reach over and pet it because it’s that pretty. (I may be a bit superficial, but looks can be everything sometimes.) The green vines do have a slight texture to them, enough that you can feel a bit of roughness/texture when you rub your fingers over them, but it’s not noticeable during use.

The dildo is borosilicate glass, which is what Pyrex baking dishes are made of. This is a great choice for sex toys because it’s resistant to temperature extremes (though switching from extreme hot to extreme cold is a good way to snap your toy), and less likely to break. This means that you can warm or cool your toy for sensation play without worrying about damaging it. If I’m using a glass toy for temperature play, I leave the toy in a bowl of hot, but not boiling water, or one with ice in it for about 5 minutes. Be smart, guys, and test the temperature of the glass before you insert it into someone. Burning or freezing your partner’s ass or pussy is a good way to get your access pass to those regions revoked. You should check your glass out for chips or cracks before you use it as well.

Special storage is pretty much required so your piece of glass isn’t damaged. This toy didn’t come with a bag of any description, and the original packaging was far too bulky for me to keep, as space is at a premium, and my sex toy drawers already runneth over. I ended up making a padded bag of my own to store it, but there are definitely commercial options out there. Worse case scenario, you can always store your dildo in a clean sock or two. The glass won’t pick up lint, so you won’t have to worry about that, and cleaning glass toys is fairly simple. Water and antibacterial soap works well for day to day cleaning, and to totally sterilize it, you can boil your toy for 5 minutes, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution, or even toss it in the top shelf of your dishwasher.

Glass is compatible with any and all types of lubes, so grab silicone or water based lubricant, it really doesn’t matter. I found I didn’t need lube unless I was playing with this toy anally, as it is a fairly small dildo, and I get wet easily. The shape of the G-Spot Wand actually is well designed for g-spot play. This shouldn’t be a shock, but hey, false advertising happens, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when a toy does what it’s supposed to do! The ball on the end of the wand manages to find my g-spot easily due to the curve, and could reasonably be compared to the smaller end of the Pure Wand. The similarities stop there though. The length of the G-Spot Wand means that there isn’t much extra toy to hold on to when you have it inserted, and that makes for messier masturbation. I end up with come and lube all over my fingers and hand, and it makes it difficult to keep a good grip on it. My partner also had similar issues when he used it on me. I think that it would have been improved by another inch or two of length. (Please note my maturity and the lack of ‘That’s what she said’ type comments at this time.) My g-spot is set a bit more deeply, though, so your mileage may vary.

I can definitely orgasm from masturbating with the G-Spot Wand. The length and slipperiness issues mean that I can’t thrust as hard or fast as I normally would, which results in me not having my normal ‘gushing’ g-spot orgasms. Instead, I just get really wet, but there are not puddles to deal with afterwards. This may be a bonus. It certainly means less laundry to wash afterwards! That being said, I don’t think I’ll be reaching for this often, though, as I already have a Pure Wand, and it has the extra weight and length to get me off in sheet soaking ways that the G-Spot Wand can’t.

I give the Glass Crystal G-Spot Wand 4 damp paws up out of 5. It’s a lovely piece of glass, and would be great for a lot of people, but I personally need a bit more length in my g spot toys.

Tracey Cox Supersex Glass Dildo Set

I love glass toys. Dildos, butt plug, probes…if you can make it out of glass, I probably will want one. Lovehoney was awesome and sent me the Tracey Cox Supersex Glass Dildo Set for review to further enable my glass toy obsession.

This set of glass dildos is a great buy for beginners or glass aficionados. It offers two very different glass insertables at a really reasonable price. The two dildos included are pink and clear. The pink dildo is 7.25 inches long and 4.25 inches in circumference at the widest part, and the clear dildo is 8.25 inches long and 3.5 inches circumference at the widest point. The pink toy is very textured, with a row of small raised nubs running down the top of the shaft. It also has a pronounced head, and two bloops on the end to make a good grip/handle. The clear dildo is much more curved, sort of a stretched out ‘S’ shape, and has four smaller ‘heads’ or bloops on one side, and is smooth glass on the other. Yay, variety!

While I love pretty much everything about these two toys, I’m actually a bit on the fence about the packaging. I appreciate that two bags are included for the dildos, I would have preferred something a bit more padded than the typical velvet-ish bag with a drawstring. I’m not in the habit of bouncing my toy storage around, but things do shift in my drawers (also, I am ridiculously clumsy) and I like the extra bit of reassurance padding brings, so mine are stored in extra socks. They won’t pick up lint, and, luckily, glass is easy to clean. Water and antibacterial soap works well for day to day cleaning, and to totally sterilize it, you can boil your toy for 5 minutes, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution, or even toss it in the top shelf of your dishwasher.

These dildos are made of borosilicate glass, which is what Pyrex baking dishes are made of.

Be smart and test the temperature of the glass before you insert it into someone. Burning or freezing your partner’s ass or pussy is a good way to spoil the mood and possibly get banished to the couch for the night. You should also check your glass out for chips or cracks before you use it as well.

As you can tell, the pink has the most texture of the two toys. The little bumps along the shaft are really intense, and for me, can get me to the point of being overstimulated, even when I’m using lots of lube. It’s not quite as bad as, say, fucking yourself with a cheese grater, but definitely verging on unpleasant. The clear dildo is the clear (sorry, the pun had to be made) winner of this pair. The shape is reminiscent of Njoy’s Fun Wand, and for me it’s amazing on my G-spot. It’s not as intense as a Pure Wand, for me, but it’s something that I can come from and I’ve had several awesome gushing orgasms with it. As always, be careful to not get too carried away when you’re masturbating with a really solid toy, such as metal or glass. Internal bruising can (and does! Bruising your cervix freaking sucks!) happen from thrusting too hard.

Glass is compatible with any and all types of lubes, so grab silicone or water based lubricant, it really doesn’t matter. I found I didn’t need lube unless I was playing with these dildos anally. For me, the pink’s texture was just too much for my ass as well, so it took the backseat again while I played with the clear toy. It also works well for anal play, and my (male) partner is excited to try it out for prostate stimulation. His and her dildos, anyone?

Overall, I give this set 4 paws up out of 5! (I took away one paw for the unpadded bags, as well s for the fact my pink toy had some imperfections in the glass.) It’s a great set that gives you a variety of textures and shapes to explore with, and the price is really reasonable.

Love Toys, Inc.’s Pussy Pump

I’ve always been intrigued by pussy pumps, ever since I saw one being used in some random porn I found online. The way it made the porn star’s vulva look was just so cool, and I have to admit, I wanted to know how much of her apparent hypersensitivity was acting, and how much was real. So, when I saw that The Intimacy Book had a pussy pump on their site, I immediately put it on my wishlist!

Now, you’re probably wondering exactly what does a pussy pump do? Well, it’s pretty much the same thing as penis pumping, except with a cup that goes over the whole genital region rather than a cylinder over the shaft of the penis. As you pump the air out of the cup, it creates a vacuum within the cup, which causes mild swelling from the extra blood flow to the area. Some women find that this suction feels pleasurable, and others like it because of the way it makes their vulva look, or because it makes their clit and labia more sensitive. Personally, I love the sensation of having a partner suck on my clit during oral, and this is similar to that sensation, only more intense and covering more area.

The pump will make your clitoris and lips swell and get much bigger than they normally look, but this doesn’t last very long. If you’re only leaving the pump and suction on for a few minutes, your labia will get smaller again as soon as you take the pump off. Even when I had been playing with this for a half hour or so, the engorgement went away in a half hour or so. So, don’t worry about the effects being long term!

The pump’s ‘cup’ has a cool shape. It’s an oval that has been gently pointed on both ends, and I found that it cups my vulva well. It’s 6.25 x 3 inches, and should fit a variety of body shapes. You will need to hold the cup to your skin for the first few pumps, but after that suction keeps it there. I found that I got the best suction when I was waxed/shaved, as pubic hair will break the seal that is formed. Also, you can spread a bit of lube on the rim of the cup to help get good suction. As a bonus, the lube will let you or your partner move the cup around a little once you’ve started pumping. It’s an interesting/weird sensation.

The box is pretty raunchy looking, and it ended up getting trashed pretty much instantly. It’s definitely NC-17 rated, and had naked women, close up of pussies (post pumping), and loud print all over it too. Not something I feel like having in my bedroom or my house, even though we don’t need to hide our toys. The box would be ok for storage if you didn’t have any other options. For me, I just out it in a ziplock baggie, and it gets tossed into one of my toy drawers.

The pussy pump is made of plastic and rubber. I’ve been only washing the cup, as I don’t think there would be any way to completely dry out the pump, and it doesn’t come into contact with body fluids anyhow. The rubber rim around the cup semi-detaches, which is annoying, because it means that I need to do some serious deep cleaning. Scrubbing toys with a toothbrush isn’t exactly my favourite things to do. I also wouldn’t be ok with someone else using this toy, as rubber is porous, and can’t be completely sterilized.

I was actually surprised at how much I like this toy! While I know that I like suction on my clit, I wasn’t sure how suction on my whole pussy would feel. It’s an intense feeling, and the continued suction feels *good*. The first time I used this (Ok, the same day I got it, let’s be honest. I was curious as hell!), I messed around with the pump, increasing and decreasing the suction, seeing how many pumps it took til the pressure got uncomfortable, things like that. I was surprised that after a few minutes I started to feel really horny! I ignored the sensation for a bit, because I was still experimenting, but it didn’t go away. So, I fully released the pressure and started to masturbate. Apparently my body reacts to pussy pumps really well, because I was quite literally dripping wet!

BloodHound, my mate, really enjoys using this toy with me. I’m not sure if it’s that he’s a really visual sort of guy, if his inner sadist gets all giggly about pumping until it’s uncomfortable/hurts a bit, or that he likes that I can come from oral after I’ve used this, but I’m not complaining. Toys that make my partner instigate sex? Hell yes. Also, it should be mentioned that normally, I have a hard time orgasming from oral sex, but after a session playing with the pump, I was actually able to have an orgasm from just from oral! That’s an unexpected bonus, and one that I am really happy about.

I give this 4 paws up out of 5 (one paw removed for the rubber material on the cup, vs the more hygienic silicone)!

Tantus’ Anaconda Dildo

One of Bloodhound’s few complaints about using dildos on me is that his fingers will sometimes cramp up as he’s holding onto the base to use on me. Luckily Tantus (and PinkCherry) came to the rescue with the Anaconda.

The Anaconda is a thick realistic looking dildo, only it’s on a stick. It’s definitely a thicker toy, with a diameter of 1.75 inches, and not something I’d recommend for someone new to larger toys. The insertable length is 7 inches, with a total length of 11.5 inches. This is definitely not a toy that I would ‘slip into my bag’ for a weekend getaway, as it’s almost of foot of dildo, but I’ve got plenty of room in my toy chest, so the size doesn’t bother me.

The dildo part of the Anaconda is a very firm silicone, with barely any give. The handle, while still stiff, is floppier. If you hold on to the handle and shake it, it doesn’t flop over, but bends instead. The head of the toy is a shiny silicone that has some serious drag to it, while the rest of the toy is lightly textured and matte. It’s a semi-realistic design, with foreskin ‘wrinkles’ under the head, and some lightly raised veins along the shaft, but nothing too pronounced.

As with most silicone toys, this one does pick up lint, but not as badly as a more smooth finish might. I would recommend storing the Anaconda in a fluff free bag, but a ziplock bag would also work if you could find one big enough to hold this! You should probably just be prepared to have to wash your toy before each use. Tantus’ 100% pure platinum silicone toys are easy to sterilize and can be washed with antimicrobial soap, wiped down with a bleach solution, boiled, or even tossed into the top of your dishwasher (without dishwashing liquid) for cleaning! You may need to do a bit of scrubbing with a toothbrush to get lube/come out of the grooves under the head. As usual, silicone toys should only be used with water based lubes, as silicone based ones can damage your toy.

The handle is comfortable to hold for a variety of hand sizes. I usually wear a size medium glove, and have no grip issues with my Anaconda’s handle, and neither does Bloodhound, who wears a size large glove. The toy is long enough that you probably won’t have to worry about getting lube and come on your hands when you’re using it. I found that the handle was also long enough that I was able to use it solo without getting the usual wrist soreness I get when I have an extending a jacking off session, yay! If you’re planning on using this with a partner, make sure that you’ve talked to them about how hard they can thrust with the Anaconda. The firmness of the silicone isn’t as forgiving as other toys, and if they use the toy roughly, it could be pretty uncomfortable.

You could maybe get some g-spot stimulation with this toy if you got the angle just right or you had your partner angling the toy, but it’s not going to work well for most people. I loved the girth, and that combined with the matte texture really made this a unique toy in my toy box, and is totally worth all the extra lube I need to douse this with every time I use it. (matte=drag=me actually needing to use lube with a toy for once!) The material does have another drawback, which is that if I’m not careful, I can thrust too hard and hit my cervix, which is not the sort of pain I am into.

I didn’t try this toy anally, as the girth and the lack of squish make it a bit more intense than what I normally like for anal play. If you are interested in putting this toy in your ass, you will want to make sure you’re well stretched/lubed beforehand, as the blunted tip is going to be a bit hard to take otherwise. While there is a flared base at the very bottom of the handle, it’s not a huge flare, so I’d recommend not inserting the Anaconda past the end of the dildo part.

Overall, this is an awesome toy, and a unique design! I give it 5 paws up out of 5!
