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

We-Vibe 4 Review

I’ve been reviewing the We-Vibe ever since it first came out, so it’s been interesting to watch the changes they’ve made over the years. The first We-Vibe was simple–no remote, no patterns–but lacking in vibration strength. We-Vibe 21 added in a bunch of patterns. We-Vibe 3 added in a remote and a bit of a power increase, along with an easier method of charging–the induction base–which also made it waterproof. So far though, We-Vibes 1 through 3 all looked about the same. Finally We-Vibe 4 is out and the changes are significant2. I admit that the We-Vibe has historically never had enough power for me, although I’ve read plenty of reviews from satisfied people. I’ve been hoping that one of these versions, the changes will be significant enough for me to finally love it as much as I want to.  New Silicone–Finally! Previously, We-Vibe had used the shiny silicone that attracts dust/fur/lint like a magnet.

Throwback Thursday: The Magic Wand

The Hitachi Magic Wand was one of the first really powerful sex toys I reviewed. Except that it’s not REALLY a sex toy, it’s a back massager. That’s what Hitachi thought, until they caved and let Vibratex distribute it instead but with a rebranding of removing the “Hitachi” because they were so ashamed of its fame.  I loved the Magic Wand for awhile. It was cumbersome and clunky, but sometimes I really needed that power boost in order to orgasm.   Nearly 6 Years Later Update… The more vibrators I try, the more I learn. I learned that although the Magic Wand is certainly powerful, it’s not the *right kind* of powerful for me. I’ve found that what I need is vibration that travels deep and vibration that is rumbly, instead of buzzy. The Magic Wand is pretty buzzy, but you don’t really notice that because of the sheer power. However when you compare it to

New and Improved: We-Vibe Tango and Touch Review

Standard Innovations has been improving on their flagship couples’ toy, the We-Vibe, for awhile now. We’re on the 4th version of the We-Vibe, so it’s about time they upgraded the much-loved We-Vibe Tango and We-Vibe Touch! In this review I do primarily focus on what has changed since the original versions. There is still a good bit of info from my original review that should be read, though. What’s Changed for the We-Vibe Touch? The We-Vibe Touch was never my favorite, but I didn’t hate it. I liked the size, the ergonomic shape. The motor was supposed to be identical to the Tango. But the motor being surrounded by a hunk of silicone led to quite a bit of vibration dampening – moreso when pressure was applied or it was held too firmly. Plus, the silicone of the original We-Vibe Touch was shiny; it attracted ALL THE FUR. ALL THE DUST. Thankfully, the Touch has
