Doxy Massager Review

There are so many “wand vibrators” on the market now. Companies saw that some people liked or needed the power that came from the plug-in electrical beasts (or as they refer to it in the UK, “mains powered”) despite the fact that they weren’t made to be used as a sex toy. When the Magic Wand formerly known as Hitachi stopped being sold in the UK, one company’s answer was the Doxy Massager Wand.  According to their site, Doxy boasts as being the “most powerful”.  This is sort of like naming a bank, in my opinion. I highly doubt that the First Bank of {insert name here} was *actually* the first bank for that town, but it sounds nice, eh? The Doxy is the world’s most powerful mains operated wand massager. Launched in 2013, it’s attracting an increasing number of enthusiasts, keen to experiment with this heavy duty, but controllable, intimate massager.  Wanting to offer

Bodywand Rechargeable

Sometimes, when you have a review to write, you just want to sum it up with “This isn’t awesome. NEXT!” But that’s not very professional, now is it? Sadly, that’s how I feel about the Bodywand Rechargeable. And, after my less-than-stellar experience with the Original Bodywand, I’m just not feelin it for this brand. They don’t offer anything special or better over other wand vibrators. They’re not super awful, though, so I can’t even put my back into writing a scathing review. How Bodywand Rechargeable Is The Same Remember how I said that Original Bodywand was a dead ringer for the full-size Fairy Wand? Well, Bodywand Rechargeable is a dead ringer for the Doc Johnson Mood Fantastic. So identical, in fact, that I’m giving them both the side-eye. Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? Just like the Mood Fantastic, Bodywand Rechargeable has a small push-button that activates a singular pulsating mode and a

Affordable Rabbit Vibrators: Myth or Reality?

Burlesque Toy Shop asked me to give a few $50 and under “affordable rabbit vibrators” a run-through to see if they stand up in material quality, build quality and so on.  Ever since that Sex and the City episode, the Rabbit Vibrator is hailed as the holy grail. Yet it’s probably the most finicky sex toy on the market. I could buy 10 different rabbit vibrators and probably only have 1 fit my anatomy properly. Burlesque Toy Shop and I looked through the options and chose what we thought might be contenders. The catch? Nothing short of true silicone would do. They sent me the Blush Novelties Ohm Lotus Flutter, the CalExotics Posh Double Dancer and the CalExotics Entice Belle to put through their paces (Picobong Kaya and Toxic Piece of Crap shown for reference, provided by me). All three seem to have passed the flame test; all three run on batteries and all three

Jopen Ego e5 Review

I get a lot of sex toys to review, so recently I nudged my husband to find something he’d like. It’s been a long time since he’s had something he loved for a prostate massager, so after some poking around at Shevibe he picked out the Jopen Ego e5. The Jopen Ego line is specifically aimed at penis and prostate toys; most of the line, in fact, is comprised of cock rings. They have four cock rings, all of them looking like some giant plastic kiddie costume jewelry ring you’d get in a toy vending machine for a quarter. Then there’s the Ego e4, which looks like your average prostate massager – aiming to hit the prostate two-fold, from inside and out. But the Ego e5 intrigued him. It looks very much like your average g-spot vibrator. In fact, I can see strong resemblances to the Envy Five, except that the Envy Five doesn’t have

Bodywand Original Wand Massager

The Bodywand Original is the latest in a long line of high-powered “wand massager” style vibrators meant to knock your socks off and modeled to rival or beat the power of the famed and fabled Magic Wand. Every so often I get in a reviewing jag of gathering up the recent additions to the wand vibrator category to see if there are any worthy innovations–or lately, if there’s anything out there to rival the Lelo Smart Wand Large. As a result, I’ve got enough wand vibes to host a successful orgy. There are numerous styles in the Bodywand lineup, but the Bodywand Original is the plug-in electric version. Unlike the old Magic Wand, Bodywand uses the dial to ramp up the power. A lot of other companies use this design as well. The dial aspect does get a bit confusing in use depending on how you hold it. If you’re holding it for someone else, and

Quickie Review: Tantus Anaconda

Despite the fact that more than two years ago I offered up one in a giveaway, and despite the fact that it’s on my “best” list I never managed to do a proper review on the Tantus Anaconda dildo. Because it’s a dildo and doesn’t “do” much, it gets a Quickie Review. What makes the Tantus Anaconda so special? The handle. Often, we use the harness base or the balls (if the dildo has either of these) as a handle, but with the Anaconda (and the Echo Handle, and the Goddess Handle) you have 4″ of nothing but HANDLE! I don’t have tiny hands, so the length of the handle is perfect for met. There’s 3 subtle ridges, too, to be extra sure you’ve got a good grip plus the handle has a textured finish to also aid in grip. Finally, to be sure it’s anal-safe, the handle flares out to a bit of a
