Tenga Iroha Mikazuki

For as much as I love the Tenga Iroha Minamo, I’m underwhelmed by the Iroha Mikazuki. The Iroha Minamo arrived first on my doorstep; I was so excited about it and liked it so much that I asked Tenga if I could review both. I wanted to be certain that I could recommend them interchangeably. I’m so glad I did because I am more reluctant to recommend the Mikazuki. My first Iroha vibe was the Iroha Midori. I had expected a lot more squish and give than I experienced with the Midori and felt a bit let down but it all. The Minamo delivered on that squish, and how. But the Iroha Mikazuki goes back to being barely squishy. The tip is very squishy, like Vixskin heads, and this continues for about the first inch because there’s no plastic body underneath, it’s simply all soft material. But after that first inch it’s just not as

Tenga Iroha Minamo

Tenga asked me to review their new insertable line, the Iroha Minamo and Iroha Mikazuki, the sisters to Tenga Iroha’s original debut trio of “soft touch” clitoral vibes, the Midori, Yuki and Sakura. This is one of those times where a reviewer needs to be objective and look beyond their own preferences. The Iroha Minamo is not something that I personally would be drawn to, but I have had many people ask about a gentle, soft, pliable silicone vibrator. A number of people with vaginas dislike silicone vibrators because too often they’re a hard plastic vibe with a silicone skin over top, and so they choose porous/toxic toys like those made of TPR and jelly because it’s soft enough for them. Both the Iroha Minamo and Iroha Mikazuki are small and best suited for people who need something slender, something with “give”, something they would describe as “soft and gentle”. The tip has the marshmallow-y plushness that I found

Jopen Lust L10 Review

The Jopen Lust L10 surely is an odd-shaped dual stimulator. Due to the angle the photos were taken on SheVibe, people were imagining a solo use version of the Lelo Ida. Thankfully, not even Jopen feels the need to incorporate a rotating internal arm. But where the Ida’s clitoral portion is shaped like a large, flat-ish disc, the Jopen Lust L10 has a top shaped like a large egg vibrator. And the shape of the Jopen Lust L10 is just odd enough that I figured it could work for me. The Good Due to the way I’m built, I hate vibrators that have a handle that sticks straight out from my vagina, so the Jopen Lust L10 seemed perfectly shaped for me.  The shape  of the fat bullet/egg (the kind with the remote handpack) always worked out for me in the past, so I had high hopes for the entire thing.  I expected to have

Jimmyjane Form 4

The Jimmyjane Form 4  seems to be suffering a case of mistaken identity. Everything it claims to be, it is not.  I don’t have a good history with the brand; in fact it’s well-known that I will never recommend one of their products. I fondled their Iconic line at a Babeland a few years ago and was extremely underwhelmed. Don’t even get me started on those bumblebee-in-a-can Little Something vibes. I hated the Hello Touch and I wanted to set fire to the Form 3. The Form 6 bored me so much that I never found the fucks to give to review it. I tend to think that everything made by JJ is in the buzzy camp and very overpriced.  Yet I start to doubt my convictions now and then when I read a positive review. I start to think that possibly not all of the Forms are awful and I should give it a

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
