Review: Lelo Mona

UPDATE: The links have been updated to the Mona 2. Until I can get an updated review posted of the Mona 2, I’ll fill you in on the changes briefly: The motor is more powerful. Not overwhelming, but very nice and more rumbly than before. The power difference is discernible and worth it. I would still highly recommend the Mona 2 over the Gigi 2. Mona 2 is waterproof, rechargeable, and composed of ABS plastic and silicone. Occasionally I purchase my own sex toys; lately for some reason most of my purchases have ended in disappointment. Except for the Lelo Mona. Yes, folks, finally a review of a premium/luxury vibrator that I do not hate!! I miss the styling of what I call the First-Gen Lelo line (Gigi, Elise, etc) but one of their changes to design was a lean towards bolder colors. I could be wrong but I was under the impression that they

Review: SinFive Burgono – A Suction Cup Dildo

Do you know how *few* sex toys there are out there that are both suction-cup AND body-safe material? Not many. Tantus has a suction cup modifier that could be used on their vibrators (remove the vibrating bullet and shove in the suction cup modifier and voila its a suction cup dildo). Some of the Fun Factory dildos have a suction-cup-esque base but I don’t know if it’s as good of a “hold” as a true suction cup. But the somewhat-upscale company from Germany called SinFive has two suction cup dildos that, while not quite the perfect material that is silicone, are still very body safe made from WTP material – read about this material type here. Today’s dildo, the SinFive Burgono, is their smooth, texture-free version. But wait. You’re wondering what the big deal is about having a suction cup dildo, aren’t you…..

Book Review: The Best of Best American Erotica 2008

There’s really four types of erotica books, when you get down to it. The first is kind of what many us grew up mocking….the Romance Novel that was really just word-porn disguised by a sappy plot and trite nicknames for body parts. Think Fabio on the cover, sort of books. The second kind is still a full-length novel but it’s more artistic in its prose. The thinking man’s erotica, I suppose. A real story, real believable emotions and situations. If you find flowing hair and ripped bodices in these it is only because the novel is a period piece. The third kind is a bit like the first, but in a short story anthology form. Of course, it only resembles the first in that there’s a lot of sex. A lot of raunchy sex. Which inspires you to either fuck yourself or fuck your closest most willing partner. The books that Rachel Kramer Bussel and

Shopping Sprees

You know, I don’t get ALL my sex toys for free. Sometimes I get impatient and just buy them. Sometimes I do a “buy out” for review at edenfantasys.com which means I get a discount but I still have to review it, such as the Devine Play Chest or the Fleshlight. But there’s things I purchased with my own money (err…I mean EF giftcards that I got from writing for Edencafe plus the commissions I got from affiliate sales at EF) recently that I want to talk about, both the good and the bad. So read on for my thoughts on the Toiboks Original, the Erosillator 2, a couple of toy storage bags, the Nobessence Seduction dildo, and the Wahl 7-in-1 2-speed Massager. Toibocks Original This is a pricey yet unique toy storage item for someone with a few bedside toys that needs total privacy and discretion. The Toibocks IS beautiful, a dark mahogany wood

Review: Kissa Glass Vibrator

There really aren’t many vibrators made in the wood/glass/ceramic area of sex toys. Edenfantasys decided to have their own line of products (the toy is made by Doc Johnson, though) and one of the first is this glass vibrator they gave me to review. It’s interesting. But am I gaga over it? Nah. I could honestly take it or leave it. Plenty of others love it though so don’t take my word as gospel. It’s just not for me. In order to make a glass vibrator, it’s really just a glass “sheath” over a traditional vibe. This lends a unique appearance to it, as the color of the inner portion is given neat reflections and appearance by being covered in textured, clear glass. However, the vibrations need to travel through a lot more material to escape to your skin. While I wouldn’t say that this vibe is weak, it isn’t, it’s just not something I’m

Ask Lilly: Choosing a Male Masturbator

When guys email me for sex toy buying advice for themselves, one of the two topics is choosing a masturbator sleeve. There’s many different types out there. The infamous Fleshlight; the colorful ones that aren’t meant to resemble any part of female (or male) anatomy; and the larger ones that are molded from a porn star and are a big heavy hunk of rubber that is basically the whole pelvic region, like the naughty bits section was sliced out of a mannequin. A Japanese company, Tenga, makes a whole bunch of supposed one-time-use varieties that many men say they’ve extended into multiple uses and then their larger versions: The Fliphole and the 3D “sculptures”. Time and again there’s only two I’ll recommend: The Fleshlight and the Tenga Fliphole. Yeah, they’re more expensive than a simple jelly rubber sleeve but you’re going to enjoy them a whole hell of a lot more. One concern I hear
