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!!

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!!!!

Rock Chick ROCKS!

 

The Purple People...uhh, rather the Rock Chick 😉

This is the Rock Chick. I’ve been curios about toys like this since I first saw them. I’ve tried the Wi-Vibe II and the Mini G-Rock both to no joy or avail. Both are in the bottom of my don’t-use drawer. When Babeland offered to let me review the Rock Chick I almost said no. But, this one looked bigger and better formed. So, I said yes. Especially since I’m learning how to ejaculate and figuring out how my g-spot works.

So.  The rock chick is about 4″ long insertible – this is the “leg” that does not have the vibrator on it.  It’s smooth, about 2″ thick and has a hooked end to massage the g-spot.  The other “leg” is ribbed on both sides, but more so on the side that hits your labia and clit.  And boy it feels good!  This end has a 1-speed vibrator in it and is about 3″ long.  It runs off of an N battery, which is randomly annoying ‘cuz it’s not the most common, however it *does* come with one which is certainly nice!

Flexible!

Flexible.

The Rock Chick is made out of silicone.  As such, it’s flexible.  you can bend it both ways; together and apart.  This lends for good ability to maneuver it just how you need it to hit the right spot.  It is a bit firm though, you can’t see it in the pics but I was working fairly hard for it to hold those positions.

Since it’s silicone make sure to use water based lube with it.  Also, it’s nice and sterilizable with a 10% bleach solution.  For cleaning though, those ribs that hit the clit can really collect body fluids and lube, so make sure to check there before you put your toy away.

The vibrator IS removable.  This makes the toy itself (with the vibrator *removed* boilable.  If you choose to remove the vibrator it’s very hard to do so, I actually had the cap pop off even though it ws screwed all the way on; so I take this as this vibrator is *not* waterproof despite the o-ring.  It popped off way too easy.  However with as deeply embedded as it is in the sex toy, I would take it as splash proof.  I actually got a lot of water on it when I was washing the toy and none got into the compartment.  When re-inserting the vibrator I’d use some water-based lube to make the re-insertion and re-removal easier.

The button on the vibrator is hard to push; I have to push very hard for it to turn on and off.  I actually cannot do it while the toy is inserted in my vagina; I need to turn it on or off when it’s outside of me so I can get a good grip on it and push hard.

 

 

Holding it; my hand is kinda big, the toy isn't large, but it isn't small either.

Using the toy… I was surprised how much I like it actually. I’ve had problems before finding g-spot vibrators that work with my anatomy.  I’ve had even less success with dual stimulation vibrators.  Typically I need to just use multiple toys at once.  However, the Rock Chick, probably due to it’s size, works great!  For stimulating my clit it’s a tad long to fall right on my clit, plus my outer labia are quite thick so I need to sort of pull them apart and push the toy inside them, however once it’s all said and done it is so worth it!

The trick to using a toy like this is the rocking motion.  For me I grip it at the mid-section and kind of do a pull-push type motion.  This stimulates my g-spot then on the up-pull of it, (the anti-thrust movement) it bumps my clit and stimulates my labia.  I also really like holding it inside me and squeezing it with my legs.  Typically I’m turned on my side while I do this.  This movement is great if you’re doing double penetration with an anal toy ‘cuz by having this toy in you and squeezing your legs you’re getting penetration and clit stimulation and then being on your side you can play with your ass as well and get all that stimulation.  It’s great!

All in all the Rock Chick gets a 4.5 out of 5!  Good grief THANK YOU BABELAND!!

Crash Pad Rope Burn Does NOT Crash and Burn!!

DVD cover

So, when I first got this adult movie from Babeland, I couldn’t wait to watch it!  I’m having a hard time deciding what sorts of porn I like, so I’m just watching all kinds until I find my niche. Oh shucks right? Lots of porn! LOL

Rope Burn is the 4th installment of the Crash Pad series. It’s by Blowfish Productions. It’s my first intro to it the Crash Pad Series.  This movie has a lot of aspects that I love.  You can tell the participants are truly enjoying what they’re doing.  There’s liberal use of safer sex practices and there’s some spicy rough sex and BDSM during it!  Plus, during the D/s and BDSM scenes it’s quite obvious there’s a lot of “checking in” and making sure that the bottom is doing alright, up to and including direct questions “how are your hands feeling?” as an example.

The video is set up in a nice voyeuristic style, with someone watching via a video camera in another room.  The couples meet up in this apartment (or hotel?) room and do their thing.  Rope Burn has a decidedly D/s / BDSM feel for all of the scenes with some being erotic power exchange up to face slapping, spanking and light bondage.

This video is all women, and all rougher sex.  There is no plot to this video, it’s just sex.  At the end there are quick check in’s with the actresses which is pretty neat.  They talk a little bit about something that surprised them during the sex, or what they liked most about it, etc. I really enjoyed that part.  There are 5 sex scenes, the last being the longest and roughest.  And then a 6th scene owhich is the “interview” at the end.

The movie is about an hour and a half long.  It’s basically 80-90 minutes of girls having sex, spanking each other, Dominating and being Dommed, getting bound and gagged and so on and so forth.  Oh shuckee darn!! lol

I also LOVE that a couple of the actresses were bigger women.  It’s really nice to see different body shapes in porn nowadays.

I have to give Crash Pad 4; Rope Burn a 4.5 out of 5!! Thanks Babeland!!!

A piratey disappointment

It is cute!

The Pirates Pendant Vibe is a discreet vibrator sold by Babeland. It’s about 3/4″ wide and about 2 1/4″ tall. It hangs off of a 2 foot long chain.  It’s plastic with a metallic coat on it, either gold or silver.  It takes 3 watch batteries which come with it, always nice.

It’s part of the sex toy collection based off the highly successful Digital Playground movies Pirates and Pirates 2; Stagnetti’s revenge.  (both good movies!) Now, the page description says that this vibrator has 2 speed settings and 3 vibrational patterns.  With mine, so long as it’s just perfectly situated I’ll get a hi and low vibration setting.  That’s it.

It’s controlled by a button at the top that the chain is threaded through.

Since it’s plastic you can use any lube with it, and clean it with warm water and body safe soap or your favorite toy cleaner.   Babeland’s Toy Cleaner is at the top of my list.

This vibrator isn’t that loud, and indeed is discreet, if something that looks like costume jewelry is discreet.  I am totally disappointed with this toy.  Mine barely works and it’s actually quite gaudy.  2 out of 5 😦  Thanks for letting me try it out though Babeland!!

Sweet Beauty? Not so sweet.

Chocolate Body Oil

From Babeland the Sweet Beauty Chocolate Body Oil is certainly an oil, it smells like chocolate, and it’s so totally NOT sweet. It comes in a 4oz bottle with a push pump top. It’s kind of hard to push down, just so ya know. The ingredients are all natural, which is nice: grape seed oil, shea oil, cupuacu butter and oribgnya oleifera seed oil infused with theobroma cacao, natural flavor, tococpherol, rosemary extract, vanilla planifolia. Now, I think that my dislike of the taste is probably due tot he rosemary extract. I hate rosemary. However, it smells YUMMY!

For the usage it’s a massage oil, so it’s runny.  It does leave your skin quite soft afterwards, there’s a bit of a feeling like there may be a film covering over it, but there’s not.  However if you get too much on your skin and need to wash it off, it’s really, really hard to get off.  So I’d keep the “less is more” philosophy in mind when using this.  As for staining I can’t really speak to that.  From it’s texture and color (sort of a watery honey color) and all the oils in it I think it’d stain pretty easily however we haven’t spilled any of it.

This product has a 6 month shelf life.  It needs to be kept in a cool and dark place.  Thankfully the bottle it comes in is dark 🙂 This body oil is phthalates free, paraban free, it’s free of sulfates and artificial scents plus it’s sourced responsibly.  If your like responsible all natural products then this is SO for you!

It smells good and it leaves your skin feeling nice and soft.  However I find it’s taste to be quite yucky.  So, 4 out of 5 for me! Thanks Babeland!!
