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

Review: Tantus Black Widow Connoisseur Harness

Not too long ago, Tantus launched a line of fancy-pants strap-on harnesses. Made of leather, they feature great designs and innovative harness technologies1. Some of the Connoisseur line works with the standard rings  and buckles (Nevada and Black Widow), but a few of them rely on velcro for a super easy, more streamlined fit (Amazon, EZ and Nurse).  The standard designs of Nevada and Black Widow are more versatile, though, since they come with interchangeable rubber o-rings. The Good The Tantus Black Widow Harness can fit a fairly wide range of bodies. The hip size range listed on the site is 30-50″ but I think it depends on how you wear it and how you’re built. If you’re heavy-set with a large lower belly roll like me, you’ll be wearing this differently than someone with a wide-hipped flatter-tummy hourglass shape. The harness wearer is going to get the most pleasure out of the experience by

Fun Factory Amorino or Is That a Rubberband??

First, let me admit that I skim over things often, and can miss a detail the first time around. When I was looking at the Fun Factory Amorino, I kept wondering how it would work, having that band on it while being inside the vagina. I wondered even further when I got the thing in my hands. It wasn’t until I pulled out what passes for a Fun Factory manual that I saw the warning: “Do not leave the band on during vaginal or anal insertion!” Ok anal insertion, absolutely I understand that. But then I’m not the sort to use a “rabbit” styled vibe anally.  So if you’re not supposed to leave the band on for insertion…….? There were bizarre diagrams of it, but none made sense. According to the FF website: “The gently taut silicone stimulation band is placed between the softly rounded tip and the side bud for clitoral arousal. It externally

Review: Je Joue Mimi Soft

A few years ago I tried out the Je Joue Mimi because a lot of people raved about it. I remember being okay with the vibrations, but not in love. The shape wasn’t perfect for me, but my biggest complaint was the buttons. They were very hard to press. The buttons alone made me never use that vibrator. Then Mimi got a revamp. They added a third button, just for the patterns. On my original, you’d press and hold the + button to turn it on, then press for each jump up in speed, and if you went too far you’d go in to the patterns. Since there was a minus button, you could back out of the patterns easily enough. With the revamp, that bit of irritation was taken away. If you want to ignore the patterns, you can do so easily.  I always wondered if my original Mimi was somehow defective. My buttons

OhMiBod Lovelife: Cuddle & Smile

OhMiBod, known for it’s music-enhanced vibrators, now has a bit less high-tech line called Lovelife. Inspired by the founding couple’s lengthy relationship1, everything in the line is moderately-priced and sized. The Adventure, the triple-stim, is about as adventurous as the line gets (so it’s aptly named). I was offered the chance to review the entire Ohmibod Lovelife line, but these days I tend to be more picky and prefer to review things that are either A: Popular & new B: Might actually work for me C: Seems too good to be true.   I’ve got the Cuddle and the Smile. The Flex kegel exercisers didn’t appeal because of the design and the silicone string – I’d already determined from the Bedroom Kandi line that I dislike stretchy silicone “strings”.  The Share cock ring was out because vibrating cock rings are useless for my body. The Discover seemed too small for me; Dream is just too
