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

Review: The New Leaf Fresh+ Vibrator

When the first Leaf line came out, there were lots of happy people when they saw an entire line of sex toys in GREEN. We don’t get green very often. And I tried one of the line, but was a bit underwhelmed1. I never ended up trying anything else from that line; not for lack of trying, really but I also wasn’t going out of my way to insist on getting one.  When I was informed of the new Leaf+ line, I was intrigued. The press release I received2 actually states that they are using a different, more powerful Power Bullet motor in the Leaf+ line. I really wanted to like a vibrator for once this year, so I went straight to the source and asked Leaf which + model would be the strongest. They told me that they felt that the Leaf Fresh+ was the strongest.  Why? Well, I had to ask.  Sean Marshall

Review: Minna Limon Couples Vibrator

Minna is not a brand new company; they had, all on their own, launched the Minna Ola last year. Ola used a technology never seen before in a vibrator – instead of pushing buttons to control the vibrations, you squeezed an air-filled pad on the handle. It was really aimed at those who like patterns. You could record your pattern creation and it would play it back to you, loop style, until you were done. Since I don’t enjoy patterns, I wasn’t a big fan of the Ola – the primary use and concept was just not a match for me. The vibrations weren’t bad, but in comparison to the Je Joue Uma? Uma blew Ola out of the water. Unimpressed with really any aspect of it, I watched with a wary eye as Minna launched an Indiegogo campaign this spring for their second vibe, the external-only Limon. I’m always, always wary when a company

Revel Body Sonic Vibrator

Crowd-funding for sex toys never ceases to amaze me. The Revel Body is one such item, but unlike a few other sex toys, at least the Revel Body is being made with very different technology. And for those with finicky clits which demand specific types of powerful vibrations–those who are disappointed with nearly every Lelo vibrator, or most other luxury vibrators–our hopes go up when we hear about something new. How is it new, exactly? Well, I’m not really sure beyond knowing that it involves “sonic” vibrations and magnets1. I’m a geek, sure, but lately I don’t want to put this much effort into knowing how my vibrator works. I just want one that works. If you want to know more, you’ll browse their site. I’m not here to tell you HOW it works, just how it worked for ME.  If I were to explain every aspect of this thing2, we’d be here all damn

Revel Body Sonic Vibrator - Accessories Review

I was lucky enough to be able to try the entire kit from Revel Body, thanks to the glorious Shevibe.com. Since the four extra tips, and travel case, are sold separately I wanted to talk about them separately. Accessory Tips “Sold Separately” Nico is a nipple-shaped tip that I thought would work best for me, but still didn’t – it’s a little too pinpoint and didn’t transmit as much oomph as I needed.  I thought that the decreased surface area would mean that the vibrations would concentrate more, but this somehow didn’t happen. The Nico and original tips almost feel like they have the same level of intensity, just the Nico is more pinpoint with the stimulation. The fact that it sticks out a little might make it more user-friendly for some – for others who are inclined to apply pressure and movement, this isn’t the tip for you. It’s very sensitive to being “knocked
