Toy Lust TuesdaysI know there had been a bit of a lull in reviews recently, but with being sick and then the party, I just haven’t had time to write about all of the fabulous goodies I’ve been testing. Today I have something new for the blog, from a new affiliate of mine, AdamEve.Com. It came to my attention that what we were lacking around here was porn. Clearly that situation needed to be attended to, and so here we go with the first DVD review on Stiletto Diaries.

Gush seemed like an excellent choice to kick things off with. I mean really, who doesn’t love a video about squirting?

Yeah, that’s what I thought too.

Some nights ago Jack and I popped it into the DVD player and settled into bed to watch. It became clear almost immediately that it’s one of those movies that aims to have some semblance of a plot to go along with all of the fucking. I appreciate this in my porn, although I know some prefer just a series of sex scenes with no story line.

Gush DVDBasically the plot goes like this:

- Girl has apparently never heard of squirting and becomes curious about it

- Girl and friends go to ’sex therapy’ to learn about how to squirt

- Fucking and squirting for all!

There’s more cock in this video than I generally prefer (I like a lot of girl on girl) however there are a couple of nice threesome scenes. The men were not hideous, although the women were a little too plastic for my liking. The squirting was really hot, plenty of really good spraying. I was certainly impressed (especially as a woman who has not yet managed squirting).

If you’re into a lot of hetero sex in porn, and squirting turns you on, I highly recommend this video, you won’t be disappointed (I know I wasn’t ;) Hee Hee).

Last night Jack and I had a sexy and naughty evening over at in the company of a number of other hotties. Padme and Master Anakin put on a hot show, Nia stopped by to watch me have a little fun with one of my toys, and F was lured into chatting with the promise of Jack and I having sex on cam. Good times were had by all.

Padme posted about it on her blog, here. She and Master A are off to the Vancouver Sex Show today, but perhaps we shall all meet up again tonight over at JLD for another steamy night of web cam fun!

*As much as I’d like to, I won’t give out my user name there, nor the user names of my pals, due to privacy and anonymity. You’ll just have to join up and keep an eye out :P

Toy Lust TuesdaysHaving long ago (well, it sort of feels like long ago) tried out the traditional rabbit vibe, I’ve been curious ever since about all of the ‘knock off’ or similarly styled vibes on the market. Finally I’ve gotten around to testing one, courtesy of Spicy Gear. Since I am totally in love with Fun Factory, I chose one of their nifty dual action vibes, called Mary Mermaid. More diminutive in size (at least width wide) than most rabbit vibes, I was curious to give it a go.

All Fun Factory toys are made out of very high grade silicone. This makes cleaning easy, which I appreciate. Mary Mermaid is not water resistance, so I recommend cleaning her with an antibacterial WetOne or else very carefully under running water with some gentle antibacterial soap. I really prefer to use wipes on items that are not waterproof, especially when you’ve invested a fair amount of money in said item.

Mary Mermaid VibratorAnother important point worth mentioning is the durability of the motor(s) in dual action vibrators. It’s generally recommended that to prolong the life of your toy and avoid burning out the motor, you should not run ANY dual action toy for longer than 20-25 minutes straight. Regular vibrators are generally limited at 30-35 minutes. This is one of the top complaints about dual action vibrators, because the more moving parts you have, the faster and easier it is to work the thing to death! If you need to go longer than that, get yourself a Magic Wand, with an attachment, which was designed for periods of longer use.

I really, really liked this vibrator. The only thing that sort of annoyed me about it are the dial type controls for both functions, since they are a bit sensitive and you can accidentally change the intensity by bumping them in the heat of it all. Also, it lacks variety when it comes to the movement of the head of the thing. It basically just goes round and round, while the rabbit had several different options in that department. Still, being me, and not particularly concerned about internal stimulation, I didn’t find that a drawback at all.

It totally delivers in the orgasm department. The ‘tail’ portion that rests against the clit is totally pleasant. Yum! The reduced girth also made it more comfortable for use, which I enjoyed. It’s not a super quiet toy, but then again, most dual action toys aren’t. You just can’t put two motors in such a small package and not expect it to make any noise. It wasn’t terrible though, certainly wouldn’t deter me from using it.

Toy Lust TuesdaysI remember someone telling me about the Fukouko Massage Glove some time ago. The concept sounded sort of odd to me, so I was interested in trying this particular toy out when Pleasure Me Now offered the chance.

The Glove is made out of a black lycra-type material and the entire thing is totally waterproof. There is a vibrating pad in the tip of each finger, and the batter pack/control slides into a pouch on the wrist. The vibrating pads only have two speeds, but the intensity is spot-on.

It sounds a bit like a swarm of bees when you turn it on. The sensation of having vibrating fingers is amusing if not strange. The glove is one size fits most, which means it will not fit Jack, because his hands do not fall into the ‘most’ size range. I have average sized hands and there is still a little room to spare for me.

My biggest concern was how best to clean this particular toy. The vibrating pads cannot be removed, but since it’s waterproof there isn’t a lot of need to worry about that. The best method I could come up with is to squirt a little ant-bacterial hand soap onto the glove while you are wearing it, and wash it like you are washing your bare hand. Make sure to rinse it really well and then leave it to hang dry or stretch it out on a towel. If it has something on it that seems really tough to get off, try scrubbing the spot with a small, soft brush and some soap, or leave the whole glove to soak in soap and warm water.

Fukuoku Massage GloveAside from being an unusual sex toy, this glove is also a good device for neck/shoulder/body massage. Try it out on your sore muscles.

We gave this thing a spin in a couple of ways. First I used it on Jack. It delivers a unique and pleasurable sensation when you cup a man’s balls while wearing the glove. It also enhances hand jobs quite nicely. Stroking the perineum and anus while the fingertips buzz away is also very nice I am told.

Pinching or touching the nipples with this glove also achieves excellent results. Yum!

I used it for masturbation, which felt really, really good. Mind you it wasn’t really designed to be used internally, so keep this one in the clitoral stimulation category. I was able to achieve a really delicious orgasm with very little effort on my part.

Being somewhat fickle when it comes to vibrators I would have preferred that this toy have more than two speeds, but that is just a personal preference and says nothing about the quality of the vibration that this toy delivers.

Being rather unassuming to look at, you also wouldn’t be totally humiliated if you accidentally left it out somewhere when company arrived.

Heartbreaker II VibratorAs many of you know, I’ve been lusting after a Heartbreaker vibrator for ages. It was one of the items on my wish list for my birthday last year. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I received one in the mail from Pleasure Me Now. I could hardly wait to try it after I pulled it out of the box. It’s made by Fun Factory, my very favorite manufacturer.

The Heartbreaker is made out of medical grade silicone, and requires 2 AA batteries. It’s water resistant, and the control is a dial on the bottom that increases the vibrations as you turn it. The shaft of the vibe is not rigid like most vibrators are. It’s actually very bendy, since the motor is in the bottom half, and the rest of the shaft is just silicone. I was surprised to find that even with the motor lower down in the shaft, the tip of the vibrator still provides an incredible sensation, especially when brushed lightly along ones labia.

The slightly tilted tip of the vibe I would assume was designed for g-spot stimulation, although Jack found it also works quite nicely on the prostate. This vibrator is ideal for both vaginal and anal stimulation, especially with all of those wonderful ridges!

I adore the satiny finish of Fun Factory toys. They feel so good against the skin!

Getting the end off in order so insert the batteries proved interesting. You have to squeeze the sides of the vibrator, and then slide the end off. I suppose this makes for a more effective waterproof seal.

I just love waterproof toys for how easy they are to clean! A little water and a squirt of anti-bacterial soap and you are all set. Leave it out to dry, and don’t forget to remove the batteries before storing it for any length of time.

My favorite way to use this toy, once I am good and worked up, is to insert the tip into my vagina and then bend the rest of the shaft upwards so that it vibrates against my clit. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm… I can enjoy a little penetration, combined with clitoral stimulation, it’s totally delicious.

I actually don’t have a single bad remark for this toy. All in all it’s an excellent vibrator, one that I am sure will provide many an orgasm over the coming months :P

Vibrating Clitoral PumpWhen my friends at Pleasure Me Now asked me to try out a Vibrating Clitoral Pump, I sort of arched an eyebrow and envisioned my poor girl parts being sucked up into a pink hoover. Not sexy, AT ALL!

Clitoral pumps are mysterious to be, both in form and function. Yes, I understand the drawing of the blood to the surface of the skin to increase arousal. However, I was not sure that ‘forcing’ said blood to the surface via suction would cause anything but a bruise in a most sensitive place. Still, I agreed to give it a go. I’ll do just about anything for my favorite retailer.

The pump arrived and languished away in a box while we moved ‘cross the country. Recently I dug it out and examined it skeptically, giving the suction action a brief test on an exposed nipples (both mine and another one that happened to be next to me in bed). Hmmmm, kind of a strange sensation, but no where near the suction that Jack can generate with that talented mouth of his.

I don’t think that this toy was designed for serious suction action. Yes, it lifts the skin a bit, but the cupping portion is small and after squeezing the ball a couple of times you reach maximum capacity that does not result in a lot of extra sensation.

It comes with two rubbery ‘head covers’ that fit over the top of the toy and rest against your skin. I like that feature because you can remove them for cleaning. It also comes with two small reusable sponges that fit inside the top of the toy to protect the motor from lubricant or juices. Be sure to clean those as well between uses.

This one also vibrates so I popped some batteries in and was a little surprised to discover that there is no ‘off/on’ switch. You up the batteries in, screw the bottom on and it turns the toy on. There is only one vibration speed, and you have to take the batteries out to turn it off. Hardly practical if you ask me.

Well, all my griping aside, I gave it a go on the nether bits. I found that using such high vibration right off the start was a little much for me without warm up. So once I got good and in the mood I tried it again. The suction was actually a little uncomfortable for me. I did not enjoy the sensation on my clit at all. It was a little fun on the nipples, but that’s about it.

Of course, that might just be me. If you are curious about clitoral pumps and want to try this out, by all means! I’ll give it an ‘E’ for effort, because the concept is awesome, I just think that they could make a few improvements.

Fleshlight Review

FleshlightAfter much vigorous testing, I am pleased to finally be writing a review of the ever-popular and somewhat famous Fleshlight. Thanks to SomethingSexyPlanet, Jack had the immense pleasure of sliding his penis into this very realistic artificial vagina. No one knows what the Fleshlight insert is made of, but my best guess would be a combination if silicone and other polymers. I found it to be large and somewhat heavy, and not at all a convincing flashlight, but that’s beside the point I suppose, LOL.

I think that I was more excited than Jack about the arrival of this product. As soon as I touched it I was impressed with the feel of the ’skin’ and the quality of the moulding. I mean some of those fake vaginas look like something out of the movie Tremors. After taking a look-see over the instructions I was immediately alarmed by the fact that they forbid you from cleaning your Fleshlight with soap. No mention of adult toy cleaner either, but only isopropyl alcohol is recommended for cleaning. Basically they instruct you to rinse it with water and that’s it. Hmmmmm, that bothers me for some reason. I mean, I doubt anyone really shares their Fleshlight, but you never know! I want to be able to sterilize it (no boiling it either). Of course, I read that AFTER I’d already washed the thing with soapy water. It didn’t seem damaged but I guess one should not keep doing that over and over.

You may only use water-based lubricants with the Fleshlight as well. Oil based is not allowed, and there was no mention of silicone. Between uses, and after cleaning, you must also dust it inside and out with corn starch (NO baby powder or talcum). This will keep the insert from feeling sticky and kinda gross.

Once I got all the care and use instructions straight, Jack got down to…errm, business, LOL.

I used a little ID Glide to get the Fleshlight ready for use and then let Jack take over. He slid his cock into the silky soft opening and pumped it up and down a couple of times. You can adjust the ’suction’ by tightening or loosening the end of the Fleshlight. Jack enjoyed that feature a great deal. In fact, he enjoyed the Fleshlight overall a great deal. He said that it was a little heavy for using while just laying on your back, wouldn’t take your arm long to tire out. However, there are a LOT of alternative ways to use it. Some people wedge it in between their mattress and box spring, or slide the skinnier end into a shoe and then put pillows around the shoe and go to it missionary style. Your partner can also hold it between her legs or breasts. I’m sure there are many more. Maybe if I have any Fleshlight users in the audience they can share their methods in the comment section?

Jack says that the Fleshlight is as close to the real thing as you can get. He remarked that he wished he’d had one as a single guy because jerking off would have been a lot more fun! It’s also come in very handy during Period Week here at Shasta’s Lair.

To make it feel even more life-like try heating up the insert in hot water. DO NOT boil it or microwave it. Simply fill a sink or large container with hot water and let the Fleshlight soak until it reaches the desired temperature. You might also want to let your bottle of lube float around in there as well so that it’s nice and warm. You might have to empty the water and refill it with new hot water if you want the Fleshlight really heated.

I really like that the fleshy insert is removable for easier cleaning. Once you finish rinsing it out make sure to leave it to dry thoroughly, preferably near a window or vent. Store it inside the plastic housing with both ends loosely screwed on to allow for continued air flow. Don’t forget to dust it with corn starch once it’s dried.

The Fleshlight is available in a variety of inserts. Ours is the vaginal opening in pink, but you can also find them in mocha and clear/crystal. There are mouth openings, anus openings, and non-descript which is basically a slit that makes the Fleshlight look like a piggy bank, HA HA. The insides can also be tailored to your needs, weather it be ultra tight, textured or ribbed, there is something for everyone.

Jack really enjoys his Fleshlight and recommends that ALL single men do themselves a favour and get one of these. It sure beats your hand, according to him.

Ivy Intimate Touch Palm MassagerI’ve been quite busy lately and thus have become back-logged with reviews. Today I am featuring a nifty little clitoral vibrator from Pleasure Me Now which arrived some time ago and has been languishing in a box.

The Ivy Intimate Touch Palm Massager may not look like much. I was hardly impressed when I first pulled it from the plastic packaging and turned it over in my hands. Made out of hard plastic (except for the nubbins at the end and the circular finger ‘grip’ in the middle) and very light weight, I was skeptical.

However, doing my job I popped some batteries into it and turned it on with the single button it has. The package said it had 7 different vibrations. I was immediately impressed when it started buzzing away at a fairly good strength. The subsequent pushing of the button resulted in the vibration increasing in strength twice (so three steady vibration settings, of increasing intensity) and then it flipped into some interesting vibration/pulsation patterns.

Hmmmmmm… perhaps this wasn’t going to be disappointing after all!

I stretched out naked on the bed while Jack was ironing his shirts (hell no I don’t do it for him) and started applying the nubbly end of the vibrator to all of my sensitive bits.


Very good.

He watched me at some points, but honestly, around here seeing me masturbate is such a regular occurrence that he can control himself now, even though I noticed something straining in the front of his shorts :P

While I am not really a fan of pulsing vibration, some people are, and this toy actually does a very good job of it. The steady vibration was plenty strong enough to rock my world and I came quite enthusiastically.

The price also makes it very attractive. Affordable but of acceptable quality, and certain to get the job done. If you only wank once in a while or don’t require a lot of bells and whistles on your toys, this is a great little vibe. Certain to get the job done without a lot of fuss.

Cleaning it is a tad more complicated, due to the nubbins and the fact that this toy is not water resistant. Also the seam around the silicone parts, where they join the plastic parts, is a perfect place to harbour bacteria. However, a q-tip and some adult toy cleaner should do the job. Just be sure to get into all the little groves to kill off any little ickies that might be hiding there.

I really enjoy this little vibe. I was really impressed with the power in such a low-key package. It also proves that toys don’t have to cost you a kidney to get you off :P

Progasm Prostate asked Jack and I if we would mind reviewing another prostate massager toy for men! Who were we to refuse? Thus the Progasm showed up with the mail man one day (it was in a box, not his butt, you pervs).

After a little preparatory excitement we were all set to go. Since Jack’s only complaint about the MGX was it’s diminutive size, he was all pumped to try a slightly bigger toy. That’s one thing I really love about the Aneros toys. They come in at least half a dozen sizes and shapes so that everyone can find something that feels comfortable and which strokes them just right.

Once I got it into his ass, which you should do gradually given the wider girth of this toy, he started clenching and releasing his muscles (since said toy is hands-free). I could tell by the look on his face that this was indeed a very good toy.

Being more experienced with anal play he really appreciated this slightly larger prostate massager. He found it easier to keep in during sex, and it provided that nice full feeling what most anal play enthusiasts enjoy.

Like all Aneros toys the Progasm is easy to clean with a little antibacterial soap and hot water. No bacteria-collecting grooves or seams to worry about. It’s also fairly easy to cover with a condom. The toy itself is made out of a sort of hard plastic, so it’s not the least bit bendy or soft, but I find that to be desirable in anal toys.

Jack says that using this toy certainly enhances the orgasm experience, and if you’ve never tried prostate massage you don’t know what you’re missing!

Lelo Lily Mini VibratorBoy was I excited when Bliss from Black Label Luxury Sex Toys offered me one of the coolest (and smallest) vibrators I’d ever seen for review. Black Label is a relatively new but sleek little adult site catering to people who don’t want to spend money on cheap sex toys. They only carry the highest quality products and you don’t feel like a pervert shopping there. It reminds me very much of a swanky boutique, and I like that when I am shopping for things to use on my girly parts. Their goal is to make people feel relaxed and comfortably while perusing their tastefully done web pages and I certainly feel that they have done an excellent job of it.

Now, on to the toy!

The Lelo Lily Mini Vibrator is a top of the line sex toys for women who know what they want. Made out of satiny high-grade silicone making it easy to clean and safe for water-based and silicone-based lubricants.

A few other awesome things about the Lelo is the fact that it doesn’t need any batteries! This little baby comes with it’s own charger (similar to that of a cell phone) so you’ll never be scrambling to the drugstore just so you can get yourself off.

Two very simple buttons make it so easy to use! One button turns it on and also increases the vibration, the other turns it off and also decreases the vibrations. Pretty simple really.

The Lelo is also whisper quiet. Unlike some vibes I own which sound like a jet engine starting up, you can use the Lelo anywhere and no one will be the wiser (even in the bathroom stall at the pub! Don’t ask how I know that :P)

This little toy is also ergonomically designed to fit comfortably against the curves of a woman’s nether bits. Tuck it snugly into the front of your panties while you do your housework to provide a special thrill that dusting your thimble collection just doesn’t give you.

I really loved the soft feel of this vibrator, and it’s extraordinarily small. I am talking tiny! Like the size of a chickens egg. I was somewhat concerned about it not being water proof, and I suspect lubricant might build up around the buttons and in the opening for the charger. They may want to consider adding a small rubber plug (again, like you often find on cell phones) to be used during cleaning and use. However, there is also the option of using a condom to cover the toy entirely, but that somewhat defeats the excellent soft-touch surface of this toy.

My only other criticism is that I didn’t find this toy quite powerful enough for my personal tastes. I did manage to orgasm with it after some effort, but I felt it could have packed a little more oomph. That said, many women (such as V) prefer a less intense vibration. While she found the Hitachi Magic Wand to be WAY too strong, I find it quite pleasurable. Different strokes for different folks and all that. This could also be considered a fabulous foreplay toy, much like the Je Joue Massager.

It also comes with a classy box and a sexy little black carrying case. Rawr baby!
