Spartacus’ Blown Glass G-Spot Dildo

One of my favorite colors of glass is cobalt blue. I’m obsessed with the stuff, and have been known to scour thrift stores and antique shops for blue bottles and glasses whenever I can. TabuToys offered Spartacus’ Blown Glass G-Spot Dildo in Blue to me, and once I saw the color I couldn’t refuse. While this isn’t as deep a blue as my beloved cobalt, it’s still a pretty shade that’s somewhere between that and sky blue.

This glass g-spot toy is a very simple design. The head is a upward curving ‘bloop’ of glass, the shaft is perfectly smooth, thin and relatively short, and the handle is a loop/circle. The widest point of the ‘bloop’ is 1.5 inches in diameter, and it ends in a very rounded ‘head’. I found that the handle works well for various sized fingers. I wear a size medium glove and my mate wears a size large, and we both could fit two fingers into the loop comfortably.

The packaging for this dildo was a cardboard tube, with an insert in the middle to hold the toy in place. While I liked that the box was a hexagon shape, it was far too large and bulky for storage, and Spartacus didn’t include any sort of storage bag. I’ve taken to storing my glass toys in random bright (read as: obnoxious) socks that I find at Walmart on clearance. Tacky Halloween/Easter/Christmas socks make excellent toy bags for glass! Glass won’t pick up lint, and it 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.

This dildo is made of 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. (Also, if it does break, it will break into large chunks rather than tiny splinters.) 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 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 each time before you use it as well.

This is a pretty simple and basic dildo, and I wasn’t expecting to be wowed by it. However, I was nicely surprised at how well it got me off. The bloop at the end of the toy is nicely angled to hit my g-spot when I’m thrusting, and it’s wide enough that it feels slightly less filling than two fingers. The angle of the head also helps keep my wrist from cramping up when I’m jacking off (Please tell me that I’m not the only one this happens to! Weird angles+epic jack off session=wrist cramps, and occasionally tingly fingers for me.) I’ve come several times while I used the Blown G-Spot dildo, and they’ve been good orgasms. Not gushing/squirting, but very wet, if that makes sense? Short version: this is a great piece if you’re just getting into glass toys or g-spot toys, and well worth investing in.

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.

I give this 4 blue paws up out of 5! If there had been some sort of storage pouch, I would have given this a 5 out of 5.

Fleshlight’s Frankenstein Dildo

It’s a grey and gloomy time of year, so I thought something a bit dark and morbid would be appropriate…luckily Shevibe had the perfect toy for this!

While Fleshlight is known for their male masturbation sleeves, they branched out into dildos and came out with their ‘Freaks’ line. If you’re a fan of classic horror and/or sci-fi, this line may be for you. The Freaks line has 5 dildos and 5 masturbation sleeves, each paired into male and female versions of fantastic monsters. The options are: Dracula, Frankenstein, Alien, Zombi, and Cyborg. I have to say that my favourites in the line up are the Dracula pair. The dildo has really lovely colouring, and dear gods, the bat-wing shaped labia on the sleeve are adorable!

Now, this is (please pardon the pun, but it has to be made) a monster of a dildo. A giant cock. It’s freaking huge, dude. The Frankencock is 10.25 inches long, with 8.25 inches of that being insertable and is 2.14 inches wide. Definitely the sort of toy a size king or queen would enjoy! It’s also a heavy toy, given how big it is. This is a good and bad thing. I tend to enjoy thrusting with my toys, but when you’re using a 2 pound toy, it’s best to either let someone else use this toy on me (My boyfriend is very obliging, luckily), or to just insert it and leave it there. I guess you could also put it on a flat surface and straddle it, fucking yourself with it, but I’m lazy when it comes to masturbation, and just stick with option A or B.

The details on this dildo are what makes it epic. Even the box, while oversized and really not practical for storage, had a horror film inspired font in several places. On the dildo itself, there are suture marks, nuts, bolts, and even a ‘tear’ on the base of the shaft that reveals a pipeline instead of a urethra. This toy looks like it was a missing prop from a XXX version of Frankenstein, and is decidedly ghoulish. My inner goth is thrilled!

The silicone is fairly firm, having a bit of squish to it. What the picture doesn’t show you is that the colour isn’t just green. There’s a slight shimmer to it, as well as an odd purple-ish undertone. The toy also has a shiny finish, so it picks up hair, dust, and lint like crazy. I don’t have a ziplock big enough to store this in, so I’ve resigned myself to having to wash it before (and after!) every use. Luckily, the cleaning is easy, like most silicone toys. Washing with soap and water works for day to day cleaning, and to deep clean/completely sterilize, you’ll want to put it through the dishwasher (top shelf, no soap!), boiled for 3-5 minutes, or wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. I honestly don’t have a pot big enough to boil this in and get it completely submerged, so what I’ve been doing is boiling the top half, flipping the toy over, then boiling the bottom. It’s a bit more time consuming, but I personally prefer it over using bleach. Also, you may need to use a toothbrush to get bits of cum and lube out of the really textured parts.

The Frankencock isn’t the sort of toy you can just shove in and jack yourself into a monster cock induced haze. I had to warm up beforehand with a smaller toy so the stretch didn’t kill my poor vagina. A bit of water based lube (you should only use water based lube with a silicone toy, y’all!) was also needed in the switch from the smaller toy to the monster one. The finish of the silicone itself means there is a lot of drag, and chafing sucks.

I’m a bit of a texture slut, so all the sutures, ridges, and bits and pieces of monster-y goodness were awesome for me! You can definitely feel all of the detailed pieces, and the ridges rub against my G-spot. The angle isn’t enough to give me a G-spot orgasm, but it’s a nice bit of added stimulation to my orgasm. It’s admittedly not for everyone, but if you’re like me, you’ll love it. I do find that if I’m having an epically jack off session, it can chafe a bit. Apart from that, I think it’s amazing and give it 5 monstrous paws up out of 5!

A review of Vixen’s Leoweenie!

When you are a sex toy company that comes out with an orange dildo, you have my attention. When you come out with an orange dildo that is body safe and has freaking BATS all over it, though… Not only do you have my attention, but also my love, promises of undying affection, and all the flailing fangirl enthusiasm a former goth can muster. This translates to lots, but I’m too cool to show it. That, and if I get too excited I’ll overheat, and then my eyeliner runs.

The Vixen Leoweenie is a special edition of their Leo dildo, which normally comes in purple and black. It’s a pretty awesome shade of orange. Not quite a ‘fake Halloween pumpkin’ shade, but it’s not a neon colour either. Inside the dildo, there are a bunch of small black bats, each around an inch long. Depending on where the bats are in the silicone, some of them may look more grey than black. Mine had 7 bats, most of which were perfectly in silhouette, and one or two were on a slight angle. The Leoweenies are hand made, so how many bats you get and their placement is going to vary. The base to the Leo is a suction cup, and it sticks really well. I stuck it to the side of my shower, you know, like you do, and it stayed there for about an hour before losing it’s grip.

The shaft is almost entirely smooth, with some subtly raised pieces that remind me of melted wax dripping down a candle. The head is more realistic, with a pronounced corneal ridge, slit, and foreskin wrinkles. I don’t care for hyper-realistic toys for the most part, but this is just the right combination of realistic and artistic for me. There’s an upward curve to the shaft, which means the head will rub against your g-spot or prostate during use. The head is larger and defined enough that there is a bit of a popping sensation when you pull the dildo all the way out.

The Leo isn’t a huge dildo. For me, it’s on the medium size, but then I’m a bit of a size queen. The length is 8 inches over, and 7 inches are insertable. The diameter is 1.75 inches, which I think is pretty reasonable for both anal and vaginal use, especially when you take into account the way Vixen’s silicone feels.

This toy has a lot of squish to it. Like…way more than what I am used to a ‘regular’ (not dual density) silicone. I can bend the shaft of the Leo completely in half, so it’s pretty bendy. It picks up lint like crazy, so unless you’re keeping it in the tube it came in or a ziplock bag, expect to have to wash this toy before and after you use it. There’s a fair amount of drag to this silicone as well, so you may want to use some water based lube with this. You should always use water based lubes with silicone toys unless you’re willing to take the chance of the silicone reacting badly to your toy. Cleaning options are varied and awesome. You can stick it in the dishwasher, clean it with a toy wipe, use a toy cleaner, and use antibacterial soap/water. To completely sterilize the you, you can boil it for 3-5 minutes or wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution.

If you’re into pegging, I’d definitely recommend this as an intermediate sized toy. The angle is great for prostate stimulation, it’s got some squish to the silicone, and hey, if you’ve ever wanted to hum the Batman theme song while you’ve got someone bent over, this is going to give you a reason excuse reason to. The base is wide and sturdy and works well with strap on harnesses (I tried it in my RodeoHs, the Spareparts Joque and my Outlaw Leather Annie O), and the upward curve of the shaft means you don’t have a sagging strap on cock.

For vaginal play, the Leo is definitely the Baby Bear of cocks. It’s not too small, not too large, not too hard…well, you get the picture. The head of the toy and the textured details there rub against my g-spot when I use the toy for thrusting, but it’s not overly texture or annoying. For me, it isn’t firm enough to make me gush, but it’s still a really good and wet orgasm. The diameter is enough that I have something to clench around when I orgasm, and the base isn’t so big that it gets in the way of me using my Hitachi.

I’m a fan and I’m giving this 5 black nail polished paws up out of 5!

Happy Rabbit G-Spot Vibrator

The Happy Rabbit G-Spot Vibrator is a brand new sex toy created by the fabulous Lovehoney store. I’ve been keeping quiet about this product for a long time but I can finally talk about it now it’s released to the public.

I have a love/hate relationship with rabbit styled vibrators as many rabbits I’ve tried in the past have failed to impress me. The Happy Rabbit however is an excellent feature packed product at an excellent price point of only £49.99. This toy is covered in soft silicone, rechargeable and is whisper quiet making it one of my favourite sex toys of its kind.

This vibrator is styled like a normal rabbit but with a bulbous head designed to hit the g-spot. The shaft measures up at 5″ in insertable length and has a maximum diameter of 2″ at the tip. This toy is a little heavier than other rabbit style vibrators of this kind but it’s not heavy enough for me to complain about.

I do find I need to warm up a little with a clitoral vibrator before using this toy internally as the head is quite wide for me. If the head was slimmer, I think it wouldn’t perform as good as it does at stimulating my g-spot so I wouldn’t change the size of the head.

The shaft and rabbit ears are made of a very soft silicone. The silicone makes this toy very easy to clean and most importantly its non-porous making it very hygienic. The shaft on this toy is flexible making insertion easier and use more comfortable, especially when thrusting , compared to a more rigid toy.

The ears on this toy are longer than average (1.5″) which is good as I’ve found with some products the ears can be too short to reach my clitoris. The ears are quite flat and very flexible which transfer the vibrations very well. The ears nestle nicely on my clitoris and feel very comfortable with no pinching whatsoever.

Near the bottom of this vibrator is a large white handle which also holds the buttons to control all of the vibrations. The handle is ergonomically shaped in a way which makes holding the vibrator really comfortable. I’ve used this sex toy for long periods without any hand aches.

Included in the box is a nice drawstring bag which the vibrator can be stored in when not in use. This is a good little addition especially for a silicone product as it should be kept separate from other materials as it can react to them. This Happy Rabbit is not waterproof which is a shame as I would’ve liked to be able to use it in the shower.
Functions And Controls

The Happy Rabbit takes around six hours to fully charge and a red light appears above the socket whilst it is charging which changes to a steady green when complete. The rabbit lasts a good amount of time when in use and it also holds its charge when not in use very well.

Many rabbit vibrators tend to have rotating beads in the shaft which I’ve never really liked so I’m glad that the Happy Rabbit doesn’t do this. Instead the shaft vibrates which feels really good especially as the vibrations are the most powerful at the tip. I feel the vibrations are above average for a rechargeable vibrator, but importantly they’re well focused.

This rabbit is extremely quiet! It’s one of the quietest sex toys we have ever tested especially taking into account the vibration strength of this toy. I’ve managed to use this toy in the same room without Steve realizing (until I wanted him to) which goes to show how quiet it is. If you live in a shared house then I’d definitely recommend this product.

One concern I did have before trying this product was that I could accidentally change the speed or pattern due to where the buttons are located. Due to the shape of the handle and the buttons being only slightly raised I have yet to accidentally change the setting though.

Experience

For me to like a rabbit vibrator it takes something special and the Happy Rabbit G-Spot is certainly that. As soon as I insert the toy I get an instant ‘need to wee’ feeling which means the toy has reached my g-spot perfectly. This toy is only one of a few sex toys in our collection that has actually given me a squirting orgasm.

The vibration strength might not be the most powerful I’ve experienced but the vibrations are perfectly focused. The ears sit nicely on my clitoris making me squirm in pleasure very quickly. I’ve found I get the most powerful orgasms by thrusting this toy hard making the bulbous head rub against my g-spot which makes my toes curl.

Overall Opinion

I’d highly recommend the Happy Rabbit G-Spot Vibrator. I’m not usually a fan of rabbit styled toys but this one is brilliant. The bulbous head instantly finds my g-spot. This coupled with perfectly located and flexible ears makes this toy perfect for giving me amazing orgasms.

Spartacus Butterfly clamps-Warning

Welcome to my most painful review ever. It was suggested to me by my Sir that I write the entire thing while wearing the clamps for a more authentic and honest review, but no one wants to read 400+ words of ‘Oh gods, owch. Owch. Owch. Breathe, remember to breathe. Ack, don’t breathe too deeply or the chain will move! Owch.’

Ok, really, they aren’t that bad.

Well, mostly.

Let me start out this review by saying that Butterfly (aka clover) clamps aren’t for beginners. This is definitely a toy for someone who is in to more intense types of pain…think of these as ‘Clamps 2.0′. If you’re looking for a beginners pair of clamps, I would recommend either the tweezer style or alligator clamps, both of which are adjustable. Butterfly clamps have only one intensity: HIGH!

The Spartacus Butterfly clamps are made of metal, with a textured plastic cover on the tips. Each clamp is around 3.5″ long, and the connecting chain is 12″ long. The texture on the cover is four small dots that are arranged in a square, and they will leave imprints on your skin after you remove the clamps! The texture keeps the clamps from moving after they’ve been attached to whatever body part you or your partner decides on. I’ve had my clamps used on my nipples and labia, and jokingly, on my lip for a minute!

To use the clamps, simply squeeze the sides, and the jaws open. They open smoothly, and wide enough that I don’t have to worry about inadvertently catching my nipple piercings on the jaws when I am trying to put them on. Once you’ve positioned them, simply let go of the sides. I recommend doing so slowly, unless you’re sadistic/masochistic. The smaller the amount of skin that gets grabbed by the clamps, the more intense the sensation. Like I said before, these are not for the faint of heart! If you want more than what the butterfly clamps offer on their own, tugging on the chain causes the clamps to tighten even further. Also, you can even add weights to the clamps or hang them off the chain for even more owchy fun. Also, the removal of the clamps usually hurts more than having them put on as all the blood rushes back to the area that was clamped.

Because the Butterfly clamps are made of metal, the care of feeding of them is fairly simple. You can wipe them down with a cleaner between partners if you are worried about any potential fluid exchange. I use an alcohol based antibacterial gel, as I am worried that water may cause the clamps to rust, and there’s been no issues with it. I keep my clamps stored in a cloth bag in my larger toy box, and they have no problems with things like picking up lint, but will occasionally snag on a stray thread if I am not careful. I’m not sure how difficult it would be to remove lube, blood come from them, though, as there are plenty of grooves and cracks.

The clamps are fairly solidly constructed, however, I have managed to break one of my two pairs during a scene. My Sir had attached one of the clamps to my nipple and the other to my labia, and while I was flailing, squirming, and trying desperately to get away, one of the clamps somehow became separated from the chain. I managed to re-attached the clamp and close the link in the chain again with a pair of needle nose pliers. Also, one of the plastic covers popped off at one point, but this was something I was able to fix with some contact cement.

If it wasn’t for these two incidents, I’d give the Spartacus butterfly clamps five paws up rather than four.
