Evolved Travel Vibe Anguilla

 Isn’t it freaking cute??  The Evolved travel vibe Anguilla is an itty bitty vibrator.  It’s not really meant for insertion; it’s total length is about 4 1/2″ long with a circumference of about 3 1/2″.  It’s insertible length is maybe 3″ so yea; no insertion.  Mine is pink and you can also get one in purple. While this is a discreet vibrator it’s not necessarily hide-able in plain sight. You can look at it and know it’s a sex toy.

The bottom has a twist off cap with a nice o-ring in it.  It takes just 1 AA battery.  The control button is just one button on the end of the cap.  It has 2 speeds, medium and high.  The one problem is that it’s kind of loud though; this really isn’t a sneak-into-a-public-bathroom vibrator.  However it is GREAT for travel ‘cuz of it’s size and power, if you can get a place where sound wouldn’t matter.  Just a tv and closed door would be enough to mask the volume.

It’s very hard, but also has a lovely velvety feel to it.  It feels wonderful on the clit and labia.  Plus, the unique shape also lends to great sensations as you move it over your sensitive bits.

The package it comes in is a bottle type container.  It’s fairly sturdy see through plastic.   You carefully balance the vibrator on it’s bottom on the bottom of the container then put the top on and it’s totally enclosed.  It also has a little holder on the top, though it doesn’t stay together being held like that, so it’s more for looks unless you tape it closed.

All in all this is a great toy!  Being plastic it’s mostly non-porous; just use a 10% bleach solution or an antibacterial toy cleaner and you’re good!  Just make sure to clean them! LOL

For storage since it’s plastic it’s non reactive with everything but silicone, so you can safely store it outside of it’s container if you wish.  (Considering the container needs to sit on it’s end you just may do so; as I do, store it outside of the container.)

All in all?  4 out of 5!  Thanks Eden Fantasys!!

An expert guide? Yup!

So, there are a few reasons right away to love this DVD.  1 – It’s by Tristan Taormino.  2 – It has Evan Stone in it.  3 – It’s by Vivid.  4 – It’s about female orgasms.  Do I really need to write anything else?  NOPE!  So… that’s all you get…

Haha!  Just kidding.  Anyway, Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Female Orgasms includes over 30 minutes of her explaining, with a little input from a few female and male adult movie stars, all about female orgasms.  They talk about how different positions cause different sensations, how women have several different kinds of orgasms (vaginal, g-spot, clitoral, anal, nipple, any combination thereof, and even some from pain), and one thing I am really glad they talked at length about is how for some women it can take quite some time for a woman to orgasm and how that’s perfectly normal.

Throughout the 30+ minutes of instruction they show different clips which help illustrate a certain point they’re talking about, such as the process of female arousal which includes the outer labia turning pink/red and the inner labia swelling up a bit with the flow of blood going down there.

Some other points Taormino hits upon are: some women make noise, others don’t, some scream; there’s no wrong way to orgasm; anal pleasure; sex toys; female ejaculation. The great thing about this video is that Taormino really knows what she’s talking about and she explains everything using terms many if not all know and understand and she explains those that many may not understand. Also, she is very friendly, calm and sex positive; thus she’s open-minded and has absolutely nothing of the “this is wrong” mindset. She frequently says that there’s no wrong way to orgasm which I think is important for many women toh ear.

There are a few extras on the dvd as well including safer sex practices, kegel exercises, a masturbation montage and a behind the scenes feature.  Something I really enjoyed though is how after the 30 minute segment with Taormino they include sex scenes with all the couples.  The sex scenes are not your normal porn though, as they’re all about showing how these ladies orgasm for real; no porn acting or anything, it’s simply the women having real orgasms in the way that their bodies orgasm.  It was wonderful!!

I highly recommend this video if you’re interested in learning more about female orgasm and if you like to learn from movies. Otherwise, as awesome and thorough as this video is, I would recommend a book in conjunction with the video; the book would be best for instruction and the clips at the end of Taormino’s video showing the adult stars having their own kinds of orgasms are very good for visualizing it all.

Thank you Babland, for sending me this video in exchange for a fair and honest review!!

Ride ‘Em Cowgirl!!

Ride 'Em Cowgirl!!

From time to time, it’s nice to get something sex related that’s not erotica, porn or a sex toy.  And this time around, thanks to MyPleasure, it was Ride ‘Em Cowgirl by Dr. Sadie Allison.

Size wise, the book is smaller, though it’s pretty thick at 215 pages.  Also, it’s not at all discreet as there are a lot of illustrations of naked people, sex positions and genitals.  The illustrations are sort of cartoony, however they do a good job illustrating the various positions Allison talks about.

So, basically, Ride ‘Em Cowgirl is a book all about sex positions.  Everything from the importance of being properly lubed to safer sex practices are listed in this book.  Allison also includes information on positions for pregnancy and post-partum, anal sex and play, oral sex and even information on things to do if your man has a very large penis, or if it’s on the smaller side.  She includes positions that specifically are good for simulating the clitoris, or g-spot and even a whole chapter on ways to engage in sex play without having intercourse.

Something that really impressed me is that has suggestions on positions if you’re a bigger person!  And that’s if he is larger, if she is larger, or if both are large!  Often those of us who are bigger are often overlooked, so it was really nice to see that.

Something else that I think is really nice about this adult book is that it’s written in a very nice voice.  It’s like talking to your good friend who also is very knowledgeable about sex.  Dr. Allison makes sure to include tips specifically for women, such as making sure to have smooth nails when playing with a penis, and also tips for men, such as the fact that a lot of women don’t enjoy getting razor burn.

All in all I was very happily surprised by this book.  I’d read a couple other of Allison’s books and wasn’t blown away, but Ride ‘Em Cowgirl really is a good book whether you’re a sexpert or if you’re new to sex play.

Highly, highly recommended!!

Thanks MyPleasure, for letting me have this book in exchange for a fair and honest review!! ^^

The Wonder of the Bendable You Too

Size comparison, next to a 20oz Coke bottle.

You gotta love Evolved’s sex toys. They are unique and quality yet well priced. And the Bendable You Too .

It comes in pink and purple, though the packaging is not the rockin’ long term uber-box that Evolved’s toys usually come in. This comes in a plastic case with a plastic insert. You could use it again, but it’s not the high quality box that usually comes with Evolved vibrators.

It’s 8 inches long and has a cord to a power pack.  The cord is over 2 feet long which I really like, you can get in whatever position you want and not have to worry about the cord being too short.

It has 7 speeds, medium – high – super high and then 4 pulsations.  The cool thing is that it has 2 motors that vibrate with equal power; each on either side of the vibrator itself.  Then there’s about 3-4 inches of the bendy-ness between the motors.

I find this toy to be one of the best for plus sized women out there. With it’s length it’s easy to reach the difficult to reach places.  Not to mention it’s awesome for any sized women (or men!) because you can get it into any position you want.

Yes -- any position you want!!

And you can then straighten it back out.  Now, it never really does get exactly straight again; however the little crimp that seems to stay does not at all affect the performance of the toy at all.

The power pack is easy to use with an on-off button and then a separate button to flip through the patterns.  It takes 2 AAA batteries, just twist off the cap.  And, it IS waterproof!!  There’s a lovely O-ring in the power pack so that is splash proof (I would not recommend submerging the power pack.)  The vibrator itself is safe to be fully immersed in water.

Having said all that; the Bendable You Too is not my favorite toy, not by a long shot.  However, it’s so unique that that totally transcends the not-my-favorite-ness.  This is one of my go-to toys for when I’m taking a bath, I can get it into whatever position my body wants; if I want g-spot, internal or clitoral stimulation it can get it all!

There’s also a little point at the end of the toy (you can see it on the right side of the above photo) that’s really great for clitoral stimulation.  You can get some great dual stimulation with this toy, if your body is the right size.  I find that mine isn’t, so I don’t tend to use it that way.  It does work well for g-spot stimulation, but because the body of the toy is malleable it’s hard to put a lot of pressure up on your g-spot, but if you don’t need/want that then it’s perfect!!

Highly recommended!!

Thanks Eden Fantasys!

Dual stimulation!!

Doing it with Damon and Hunter (a review)

Oohhh they're HOT!

So, I’ve been having a hard time finding porn that I enjoy lately.  I dunno why, but I’ve been masturbating better to NCIS than anything else.  *shrugs* Whatever right?  However, this has lead me to begin a, so far, fruitless search for porn that I can masturbate to, and really enjoy.  Now that’s not to say that I’m not enjoying the adult movies I’m watching!  It’s just that I’m enjoying them for the sake of watching them.  Not for the sake of masturbation.  It doesn’t matter how many sex toys I have piled next to me, if I have a porn on I just watch it.  Then I put NCIS on and fuck myself.  Maybe I have an NCIS complex….

Damon & Hunter; Doing It Together is unfortunately, not any different.  However, that’s me and my NCIS masturbation complex.  The movie is awesome! This adult film is by Comstock Films, it’s a husband and wife producing some unique independent films.  This is the first gay movie they’ve produced.  It includes an interview that’s about a half hour long, then a half hour sex scene.  The nice thing about the sex scene is that it’s the guys doing it how they want; it’s just them having sex as if they were doing it at home, not on film.

The movie starts off with an interview between the two men and they talk about their lives, sex lives and their views and ideals regarding sex and sexuality.  It’s interspersed with a few seconds long clips of the sex scene.  Then, there’s the sex scene.  And that’s it.  It’s really quite simple, but it’s awesome in it’s simplicity.

There are a couple special features.  There’s an option where you can watch the sex scene with commentary and also choosing your own camera angles, of course from the options there are.  There’s usually 3 choices.  Also, there’s promo’s for some of the other Comstock Films movies.

The only thing is I wish the interview had been longer.  Not only are Damon and Hunter fucking sexy as hell, but they were simply enjoyable to watch and listen to.  This is totally a movie to get if you like gay porn and also the ideas behind it.  It’s just so nice to be able to hear what the guys think about it, ya know?

4.5 out of 5!!  Thanks Fascinations!

book review: female ejactulation & the g-spot

"Not your mother's orgasm book!"

Available at Babeland, this book is very information heavy.  This isn’t a book that just tells you “how-to” ya know?  It tells you how to, it tells you why, and when, and in what manner, and the history, and anything else you could possible want to know about your g-spot, everyone else’s g-spot, how it’s similar to the p-spot in men and even the suspected composition of female ejaculate. But as I said; it’s information heavy. You’re not going to read this in one sitting.

Female Ejaculation and The G-Spot was written by Deborah Sundahl it’s 194 pages plus a glossary and a couple resource guides.  This book includes chapters on: what is female ejaculation, ejaculating with an orgasm, ejaculating with your partner, healing your g-spot, men’s roles in female ejaculation and more.  It’s probably 8″ tall and 4″ wide.  It’s quite obvious that this is is an adult book so if you need discretion I’d hide it.

Now, I bought this book ‘cuz after my cervical surgery I’ve been having difficulty with vaginal orgasms.  So, I wanted to find my g-spot better and enjoy it, like I firmly believe every woman can and should.  The book helped.  A lot.  I’ve since had g-spot orgasms and have begun being able to ejaculate.  The book has helped me learn how to learn my g-spot, what it likes and what it takes for me to actually ejaculate.

Sundahl starts the book off with a “peek” inside a g-spot workshop.  She then goes into the history of the discovery of the g-spot, it’s composition, where it physically is inside the body and she ensures to clarify that everybody’s body is different and as such, not everyone will react the same to the same stimulations.

She stresses the importance of women taking time to learn their bodies and taking time for themselves, if nothing else, to simply be alone.

All women need this book.  Totally.

5 out of 5!  My G-spot and I thank you Babeland Toys!!!

Tantus' Large Ripple

 

The Tantus Ripple LARGE

Now.  When I say large, I mean Large! the Tantus Ripple is an incredible anal plug.  Actually considering it’s size you could probably consider it a dildo! Available at Babeland Toys this is a 100% silicone butt toy with no vibrator, so you can boil it, dishwash it, or use a 10% bleach solution to sterilize it.  Also, since it’s silicone make sure to store it so it’s not touching any other toy, as well as use only water based lubes.

Very flexible!

The silicone is quite soft, flexible and malleable so this toy is incredible for long term wear!  It’s 6 1/2″ long, so it’s a tad bit shorter than many anal beads and longer than a lot of other butt plugs.  The butt plug is nicely graduated with 4 ripples.  They begin at about 1″ around and graduate up to a thick 3″ around.  The space between the ripples also graduates, between the first and second ripples the space is perhaps 3/4″ around, whereas it’s a good 1 1/2″ around between the third and fourth ripples.

As for the color it’s advertised as a metallic purple, which many Tantus products are, however mine is a solid black.  Truth be told it’s a little disappointing, however life certainly goes on 🙂

Size comparison to my bottle of Climax Anal Lube

Use wise, this butt plug is BIG.  I’d register is as an intermediate butt toy.  If I’m not all randy and warmed up and everything I can only take in 3 ripples.  Even so, this toy stays in very, very well.  I am so happy with this butt plug!  Honestly?  This is the first butt plug I’ve really loved.  It works great as a long term toy and also as a dildo; it’s long enough that you can grasp the nicely flared base and thrust to get an incredible, amazing sensation.  PLUS with how soft and forgivable the silicone is this toy works incredible for some intense double penetration!  😀

It’s packaging is the standard Tantus clear plastic box, with a clear plastic clam shell insert.  However mine seemed to be a bit too small.  It sticks out the top of the clamshell insert so it can’t really be properly closed.  However, it still works for storage to keep the integrity of the toy.  As a random aside; if you ever get a Tantus box and can’t find the name of the toy, look on the back of the box, near the bottom.  There’s a small white sticker with the name of the toy there 🙂

Eye from the sky 😉

This toy is perfectly smooth.  There are no seams or anything like that.  The only non-smooth thing on it is the embossed Tantus logo on the base.  Now, if you want this toy but it’s too big, there is a smaller version.  Just make sure to choose the Ripple “small” rather than the Ripple “large.”

Please, let me reiterate that the Tantus Ripple Large is NOT in any way a toy for an anal play beginner.  Even if you’re adventurous this is a large toy!  This is a toy to help someone get used to something large in their bum.  If you’re working up to anal sex then this is perfect for you!

I LOVE THIS TOY!!  Thanks Babeland!  Total 5 out of 5!!!!
