Hello, if you’re just catching up, I’m reviewing the Lovehoney “Best Sex of Your Life” advent calendar, one door at a time. This kit is aimed at couples and assumes a cisgender, heterosexual dynamic (though many of the items are unisex and will work for anyone).
Let’s take a look behind Door #20…
Door #20: G-Spot Dildo
Behind today’s door is a mini G-spot dildo. I’ll start, as usual, with a rundown of the basic stats:
Body safe? Yes. Silicone is body-safe and non-porous.
Power: No motor, but pairs with a bullet vibe if you wish.
Waterproof: Yes, submersible.
Size: 5.5″ total length, 5″ insertable, 1.2″ in diameter at the widest point.
The very gentle curve and bulbed head offer comfortable insertion and G-spot targeting. Though this toy is billed as a G-spot dildo, you could also use it as an anal dildo. The flared base makes it safe and, if you have a prostate, the curved tip is ideal for prostate stimulation.
Size lovers may not find this dildo large enough to satisfy. But if you’re new to insertable toys, want something you can use for warm-up, or just prefer smaller or slimmer toys, you can’t go wrong with this one.
The Best Sex of Your Life advent calendar is a limited edition product. It retails for £120 but contains around £370 worth of products. You can also get 10% off any Lovehoney order when you use my code “coffkink10” at checkout.

Welcome back again for another installment of “Amy reviews Lovehoney’s “Best Sex of Your Life” sex toy advent calendar. Each day, I’m opening up a door and telling you guys about what’s inside. It’s been an interesting mixed bag so far, so let’s see what Day 11 has in store.
Door #11: Mini G-Spot Vibrator
This is the first vibrating toy since Day 1’s bullet vibrator. Exciting! Let’s start with a few basic stats:
Material: ABS plastic
Body safe? Yes. ABS plastic is non-porous and non-toxic.
This plastic G-spot vibrator features a straight handle and curved, gently tapered tip for precision stimulation. If you prefer girthy toys or very deep stimulation, it won’t do much for you, but for basic vibrating G-spot action it’s perfectly serviceable.
I don’t love that it requires adisposable battery, partly for environmental reasons (rechargeable toys are so much more eco-friendly) and partly because having to hunt around for batteries before a wank session is super annoying. But to be fair, if anyone reads the small print on the advent calendar’s box, it does warn you that you’ll need a battery for one of the items. Inserting and changing the battery is easy. Simply unscrew the top and bottom halves of the toy, pop your battery in, and screw it back up again.
The controls are a simple twist mechanism. Turn until the little arrow on the side points to “on” or “off”. This vibe has only one speed. It’s actually reasonable, power-wise, for a one-AA-battery basic vibe, though much buzzier than I prefer. Volume-wise, it’s not too bad, though it does make a slight “rattly” noise when I press it hard against my body.
If, like me, you find that internal vibrations don’t do much for you, this G-spot vibrator also works well as a clitoral toy. Use the side of the shaft for broad stimulation and the tip for more precision. Of course, it’s also good for penises, balls, and anywhere else where vibrations feel good. (Not butts, though – this toy is not anal safe).
The Best Sex of Your Life advent calendar is available now and for a limited time. It retails for £120 but contains about £370 worth of stuff. You can get 10% off your purchase of this or any other items at Lovehoney by using my code “coffkink10” at checkout.

I very rarely buy sex toys these days. One of the major perks of running a sex toy review blog is that I get toys sent to me for free, usually several times per month. And when it comes to masturbating purely for pleasure rather than for reviewing purposes, I tend to return to a few trustyfavouritetoys again and again.
I say all this so you appreciate how unusual at is for me to actually buy a sex toy for myself just because I want it. But I’ve had my eyes on the Njoy Pure Wand for years so, when it was on significant discount in Lovehoney’s Black Friday sale, I decided to take the plunge and get one.
I might be the last sex blogger in the world to try this thing, but Late To The Party is practically my middle name, so… let’s go!
What is the Njoy Pure Wand?
The Njoy Pure Wand is something of a legend in the sex toy world. It is a super-hefty, super-shiny, C-shaped stainless steel dildo. Cast in 316 grade steel and measuring 8″ end-to-end and 10″ along the curve, this is an absolute beast of a toy. This is genuinely in the don’t-take-it-on-a-plane-because-they-might-think-it’s-a-weapon category!
The Pure Wand features two bulbed ends, one larger (5.5″ circumference) and one smaller (3″ circumference.)
The Njoy Pure Wand arrived packaged in a sleek and sturdy Njoy-branded box, lined with black velvety material and pink satin. It’s a nice presentation touch and also a convenient way to store your toy.
A Steel Sex Toy!?
Stainless steel is non-porous, body-safe, and designed to last a lifetime. It’s also beautiful to look at and feels incredible in use (more on that in a minute.) It is compatible with any type of lube, and is basically indestructible. So yes, the Njoy Pure Wand is pricey at £129.99 full price, but it is a true investment piece.
You can heat up a stainless steel toy by running it under warm water before you play, or cool it down by popping it in the fridge (not the freezer) for a few minutes.
Stainless steel dildos are also incredibly easy to clean. Just use a sterile wipe or 10% bleach solution, followed by a rinse with gentle soap and warm water.
A Note on Squirting
The Njoy Pure Wand has a reputation for being the toy to make people with vulvas squirt.
It’s worth noting that squirting isn’t something that all vulva-owning bodies are capable of. It’s also worth noting that it’s not even something everyone wants! Personally I’ve never squirted, and I don’t actually know if my body is capable of it or not. I’d like to experience it, but I’m also not super attached to the idea. If it happens it happens, y’know?
So did the Njoy Pure Wand make me squirt? No. At least not so far. But did it feel absolutely incredible? Yes yes yes.
Pure Wand in Use
Despite lusting after it for years, I was a little nervous when it came to actually using the Njoy Pure Wand. Stainless steel is rigid, unyielding, and has a reputation for being incredibly intense as a sex toy material.
We actually started with the larger end as we were using the toy in preparation for a fisting scene.
This is a toy that requires a LOT of lube. Stainless steel looks smooth, but can feel quite “grabby” when you come to insert it. Since it’s so hard and rigid, lube will just make the whole experience so much more comfortable. We used Sliquid Sassy, which is super thick and long-lasting, but whatever lube you prefer will work fine.
The Njoy Pure Wand is INTENSE. Like seriously, seriously intense. Its pressure against my G-spot made me feel like I wanted to orgasm and pee all at the same time. (I’m told this is what the precursor to squirting can feel like, but it didn’t happen for me.)
It made me make noises that didn’t sound like anything I’ve ever heard from myself before, and it brought me to a purely G-spot orgasm more quickly and easily than anything has since I started taking antidepressants.
I needed aftercareafter using this thing. That isn’t something that often happens when I play with toys.
So Do I Recommend It?
Fuck yes… with caveats.
I am absolutely in love with this dildo. I also recognise that it won’t be for everyone. If you like intense G-spot or prostate stimulation and can use hard toys comfortably (or enjoy a little bit of discomfort) then the Njoy Pure Wand will probably rock your world.
Every now and then, I get my hands on a sex toy that is so pretty that it delights me just to look at it. Even more occasionally, that toy is as good in function as in form. The new Kurve by Hot Octopuss is one such toy.
Kurve is a new vibrator for folks with vulvas from Hot Octopuss, pioneers of sex toy innovations. At first glance, it looks like a fairly standard, curved G-spot vibrator – but it is so much more than that.
The Kurve features dual-motor, patented Treble and Bass technology, the same technology used in the Jett (a wonderfully creative toy for penis owners.) But instead of sitting in two separate pieces, Kurve brings both motors together in one creative and
As I mentioned, my first impression of the Kurve is just how pretty it is. The silicone body is a rich burgundy colour, and the plastic handle fades from burgundy to black. When I held it up to show my partner and metamour on camera, they declared it “essentially the aubergine emoji in a sex toy!”
The Kurve is just over 7.5″ in length, of which around 5″ is insertable, and 1.6″ in diameter. It weighs 189g.
The Kurve is fully waterproof, USB rechargeable via the included cable, and comes with a silky black storage bag with Hot Octopuss branding.
Let’s Talk About That Shape, Tho…
Curved toys are usually a big hit with me because they’re fabulous for targeted G-spotting. Kurve’s, well, curve is near perfect. Not only that, but the bulbous head is soft and squishy while the rest of the shaft is rigid.
Even before we bring the vibes into the equation, Kurve won me over as a G-spotting dildo alone. Bonus: the plastic handle is comfortable and ergonomic to hold and manipulate.
All About That Bass (and Treble)
So here’s where things get really fun! The Kurve’s unique selling point is based on its two motor, treble and bass design. What does that mean, exactly?
The toy contains two distinct motors. The “treble” vibrates at a high frequency, while the “bass” gives a deeper sensation. In common sex-toy-reviewer parlance, we might think of the treble as the “buzz” and the bass as the “rumble.”
The beauty of the Kurve is that you can use the two motors together or separately, and at different levels. So if you want a little buzz and a lot of rumble or vice-versa, you can do that. If you want a lot of both? Yep, that’s available, too.
I’m not a big fan of buzzy vibrations generally – as a rule, I’m all about the rumble. But holy shit, this toy when they’re both on together…. wowwwww. The multi-layered stimulation is super intense and I’m super here for it. I actually found that it felt best when I laid it along one side of my vulva and allowed the vibrations to thrum through my labia to my clit.
Kurve’s controls require a little getting used to, though they’re fairly intuitive once you learn which button does what. The treble and bass controls are conveniently marked on the handle.
There are also two small buttons, one that turns both the treble and bass off simultaneously, and one that switches between patterns. The Kurve has 5 patterns and each motor has 5 speeds.
The buttons are raised, making it easy to find them without looking, and easy to press. Once you’ve memorised which side is treble and which is bass, you can operate the toy completely by feel.
The Kurve is a damn good toy.
I do have a couple of small complaints that I hope will be ironed out in subsequent versions. Most notably, the seam between the silicone shaft and plastic handle is uneven in a way that is a little unsightly on an otherwise luxurious looking toy (not to mention a potential bacteria trap.) It would also be nice to be able to control patterns independently for each motor, as well as speed.
In the scheme of things, though, they’re small issues and this is a great product that I heartily recommend and that has earned a place in my quick-grab toy basket.
The Impressions N1 by Blush Novelties is a curvy vibrating dildo. Made of smooth and body-safe silicone in sleek black, it is 6.75″ in length 5.75″ insertable) and 1.5″ in diameter at the widest point.
The N1 features a suction cup base and is USB rechargeable via the included magnetic cable. It’s also waterproof.
My Impressions N1 came packaged in a clear box that shows off the toy. I don’t love the amount of single-use plastic the packaging uses, but I do like that it allows the buyer to see the exact shape and size of the product.
By the way: Blush products come with a 5 year warranty if you’re in the US or Canada. Sadly not for those of us in the UK.
A Multi-Purpose Toy
The Impressions N1 can be used in several ways: as a simple dildo, as a vibrator (internal or external), or with a harness for strap on play. Thanks to the flared base, it’s safe for anal as well as vaginal use.
As always, I recommend using water-based lube with your silicone toys for the best experience.
Shape and Design
The N1 has a gently curved design and a head with pronounced ridges. There is a seam in the silicone down the middle, but it’s subtle enough that it doesn’t really get in the way of the experience. Otherwise, the silicone is velvety smooth!
The prominent head and ridges feel amazing against my G-spot. I absolutely love the shape and shaft design of the N1! It’s pretty flexible, particularly at the narrowest part of the shaft, for ease of insertion and manipulation. I’m a fan of smaller and moderate size dildos (large ones tend to hurt, or at least require a tonne of warm-up) and this one is the ideal length and width for my preferences.
By the way: the ridges and tapered tip feel wonderful against the clit, if external play is more your jam.
The suction cup is also seriously impressive. As I’m typing, it’s stuck to the wall next to me and it isn’t going anywhere! So if you want to stick it to the floor/wall/mirror/tub/ceiling (hey, I’m sure there are people who are into that!) for hands-free play, you can.
How are the Vibrations?
The Impressions N1 boasts 10 total vibration settings: 5 speeds and 5 patterns. If there’s one thing I love about Blush it’s that they use seriously good motors in their toys. The N1’s vibration settings
The vibrations are controlled via the simple two button interface located at the bottom of the shaft. The top button switches the toy on and off, while the bottom button scrolls through the patterns (no option to scroll through settings both ways, unfortunately.) My only complaint, and it is a small one, is that the buttons have fairly deep ridges that could harbour bacteria and are quite hard to clean.
The N1 is reasonably quiet for the level of power it offers. It passes the “can I hear it through a closed bedroom door?” test with flying colours.
Final Thoughts and Verdict
The Impressions N1 is an excellent, versatile toy. I’m happy to recommend it as a brilliant all-rounder. A well-designed shape, powerful motor, anal-safe and harness compatible, and

The Jopen Key Comet Wand has been on my wish-list for some time. It’s one of those toys I’ve seen so many sex bloggers rave about. Naturally, I wanted to try it! Luckily for me, the lovely folks at Self and More – a woman-owned, online store that stocks only body-safe products and uses ungendered marketing – were happy to hook me up.
Let’s take a closer look…
The Jopen Key Comet Wand is a two-in-one dildo. It’s a glass wand, and one end is dipped in body-safe pink silicone. It has a pronounced curve and two bulbous heads (the silicone head is larger than the glass head.)
Thanks to the glass, the Comet Wand has a satisfying weight to it and is firm to the touch. You get around 5″ of insertable length from each end, and the diameter is 1.5″ at the widest point.
Your Comet Wand comes with a storage bag, which will help keep it lint free and prevent the glass from getting chipped in storage. The glass end features a stainless steel accent with the Jopen Key insignia.
Shape and feel
This toy is enduringly popular with fans of G-spot play. Having now had a chance to try it, I can see why.
When I play with rigid toys made of hard materials, I prefer to sort of wiggle them gently rather than thrust (which tends to be more painful than pleasurable.) The Comet Wand is absolutely amazing for this purpose. The curved shaft targets the right spot with ease, the firm, bulbed heads provide intense pressure, and the wand is large enough to create a feeling of fullness, without being so large as to be uncomfortable.
I can have G-spot orgasms reliably with the Comet Wand. Using it with a strong clitoral vibrator for blended orgasms is also amazing.
Whichever end you’re not using for penetration makes a convenient and ergonomic handle, making the Comet Wand comfortable to hold and manipulate.
I haven’t been able to try this out as I’m not able to see any of my vulva-owning lovers right now (curse you COVID!). But I suspect this toy would work well to use together if you’re into that, as it’s effectively double ended.
Whichever end of the toy you’re using, remember to use plenty of water-based lube to keep things comfortable.
The Jopen Key Comet Wand is a genuinely excellent G-spot toy, effective and brilliant in its simplicity. If you enjoy firm internal stimulation and want tol

There are a few sex toys that have been on my “want to review” list forever. The Pillow Talk Sassy was one such product, after seeing sex bloggers I respect immensely (including Epiphora) raving about it.
So I was thrilled when the lovely folks at Self & More – a boutique, women-owned sex shop based in London – reached out to offer me the Sassy for review. Shall we dive in and find out what I thought?
(Pssst. There’s also a discount code for you at the bottom of this review, so keep reading!)
Pillow Talk Sassy: First Impressions
One of the things that immediately drew me to the Sassy was the gorgeous colour. It’s a lovely mint green, which is probably my favourite colour apart from purple! This is a relatively unusual colour for a sex toy, and it stands out amidst a sea of pink and other more common colours. (The Sassy does also come in pink, if that’s your thing.)
The Pillow Talk Sassy’s button features a sparkly Swarovski crystal, which is entirely unnecessary but also pleasingly extra to a #Sparklefemme such as myself.
The Sassy came attractively packaged in a white, clear front box. Included with the toy, there was a charging cable, a satin storage pouch, and – this is really cool – a little cleaning brush to help you clean in those tricky grooves and ridges.
Facts & Figures
The Pillow Talk Sassy is 7.5″ long, with 5″ of insertable length, and the diameter is 1.5″ at the widest post. It is splashproof (not fully waterproof) and USB rechargeable. The advertised charge time is 2.5 hours; in reality, I got around 2 on full power.
The Sassy has a pronounced curve and bulbous head. It is made of 100% silky-smooth, body-safe silicone.
As ever, water-based lube is your friend and will make your experience more pleasurable.
Simple one-button interface
The Pillow Talk Sassy has an unusual control system. It runs on a one-button interface and the button is large, intuitively located on the base of the shaft, and easy to press.
Here’s where things get unusual: once you’ve turned your toy on (via a quick press of the button,) you turn up the intensity by holding down the button. The power increases smoothly until you release the button. To give you an idea of how many intensity levels the Sassy offers, it took nine seconds to get to full power once switched on.
Another quick press switches the toy off. There are no patterns or any of that sillyness – just good, straightforward vibrations.
The Pillow Talk Sassy features a travel lock. Just press the button three times in quick succession to activate the travel lock, and then do the same again to release it. Useful if you don’t want your bag to start vibrating unexpectedly at the airport (remember those?)
Anyone who has read my work for a while will know that I have a thing for taking G-spot vibrations and repurposing them as clitoral vibes. The reason is simple: my G-spot doesn’t like being vibrated!
Fortunately, the Sassy is also a brilliant clitoral vibrator. It provides deep, rumbly vibration at all power levels, and the Powerbullet motor packs an impressive punch.
I absolutely love the shape of the Pillow Talk Sassy. It’s easy to hold and angle the tip against my clit. Though I’m not a fan of internal vibrations, I thought it might be fun to repurpose as a dildo. And oh my, yes, this little gem delivered! Its curve is ideal for reaching the right spot and getting that gorgeous “come hither” motion going. Honestly, I really want to have a partner fuck me with this while I use a bullet vibe on my clit.
The Sassy’s shaft is somewhat flexible, so that’s something to bear in mind if you prefer very rigid toys or intense G-spot pressure. I found the gentle flex made the experience more comfortable and fun.
The Sassy’s noise level is about what you’d expect for a toy at this level of power. Not silent by any stretch, but not likely to wake the neighbours, either!
The Pillow Talk Sassy is an awesome all-rounder. It takes a simple premise – a powerful, rumbly vibrator with a curve just made for G-spot pleasure – and it does it damn well. It is also pleasingly pretty – who says you can’t have beauty and function in one awesome package? The Sassy is shockingly well priced at £45, and of much higher quality than many toys that are two or three times the price.
Excellent on all scores. It’s earned a place in the coveted Easy Access Basket where all my favourite toys live!
Go get one. Your bits will thank you.

Sometimes, I unbox a toy and within two minutes, I know exactly what my review is likely to say. I’ll sometimes be proven wrong in the course of the testing process, but more often than not these days my first impressions are bang on. I guess that’s what comes from having tested well over 100 toys at this point.
The Dame Arc is a curved silicone vibrator with a ridged bulb tip, designed for G-spot stimulation. It is 7.5 inches in total length, 4.5 inches insertable. It’s completely waterproof, USB rechargeable via the included cable, and has a travel lock function.
The Dame Arc retails for £99.99.
I hate this toy’s outer packaging! It comes in a white, pink and blue box with a line illustration of the toy, and frankly the aesthetic makes me think of a medical device. Not sexy.
When you remove the outer sleeve, you find a plain pink box the same colour as the vibrator.
The Dame Arc is pink, but it’s a kind of muted dusky pink that I have to admit is quite pretty. It comes with an off-white drawstring storage pouch featuring the Dame Products logo.
The body-safe silicone is super soft and nice to handle. The toy’s body is rigid and it has very little “squish.”
My G-spot loves this shape…
The shape of this toy is fantastic! It curves in exactly the right way to get that delicious come-hither motion against my G-spot, and the bulbed head is firm but not too hard.
It’s comfortable to hold and easy to manipulate, with an ergonomic handle shape. The buttons are also sensibly placed on the underside of the curve (so they point upwards when the toy is inserted) and the controls are intuitive. There’s one on/off button that is also used to cycle between the 5 patterns, and up/down controls to control the 5 levels of intensity.
…The vibrations, though, are sorely lacking
The Dame Arc’s vibrations are pretty pathetic.
Since I’m much more of a clitoral than a G-spot gal when it comes to vibrations, I decided to test this toy on my clit as well as internally. My clit was halfway to numb before I got anything approaching an orgasm out of it.
Obviously not everyone is into the kind of high-powered vibrations that I’m into, but in my anecdotal experience the overwhelming majority of people with vulvas would take stronger and rumblier vibrations over this weak, buzzy offering.
What I’m saying is: if you like gentle vibrations, sure, get this toy. (Except don’t because it’s a hundred fucking quid and a £20 equivalent will do the same thing.)
Do I recommend it?
I’ll definitely be using this toy again, but I’ll leave it switched off and use it as a G-spot dildo. I highly doubt I’ll ever reach for it again for the vibrations.
So yeah. I called it. Great shape, shit vibrations.
Thanks to Lovehoney for sending me the Dame Arc in exchange for an honest review. All views, as always, my own.
 As an aside, the currently sole reviewer on Lovehoney had this to say: “…this toy has been scientifically designed by female sexual-health and well-being specialists for one purpose alone, medical-grade gushing!” Which just made me howl with laughter. What the fuck is medical grade gushing!?
I, along with many other sex bloggers, recently received a package of seven (7) sex toys from Satisfyer, who have branched out from suction-based toys and now make vibrators too. After a little deliberation, I kept two: the Power Flower, which I reviewed here, and this one – the Yummy Sunshine.
Bright and cheery…
Long-time readers will be aware of my general aversion to the excessive pinkness of sex toys aimed at people with vulvas. Generally, if there’s a choice between pink and any other colour, I will go for the other colour. One of the reasons I gravitated to the Yummy Sunshine when choosing which Satisfyer toys to keep was the sheer novelty and vibrancy of the BRIGHT yellow colour. Yellow isn’t a colour I particularly love, and this toy honestly makes me think of a banana more than sunshine, but… at least it’s not fucking pink.
The Yummy Sunshine is a fairly large G-spot vibrator. It is 8.75″ in total length, of which 6″ is insertable, and 1.5″ in diameter at the widest insertable point. Given the size, it’s very lightweight.
The Yummy Sunshine has a ribbed shaft and a gentle curve for G-spot stimulation. It also sports what seems to be the Satisfyer vibrator line’s signature ring-handle, which I find comfy and ergonomic to hold. The ring is pretty small, so might be less comfortable for someone with bigger hands.
This toy is USB rechargeable via a magnetic charging pin, and is completely waterproof. It retails for $49.95.
Controls and settings
All Satisfyer’s new vibrators seem to have the same basic control system: a vertical three-button interface, with the on/off button in the centre and the up/down setting change buttons above and below it. It’s a simple and intuitive system to use, and the buttons feel well-placed and easy to press.
For some reason, the bottom button is the “up” setting and the top button is the “down” setting, which feels counter-intuitive, so that’s something to be aware of.
Yummy Sunshine has 6 constant vibration speeds and 6 patterns.
Materials & care
The Yummy Sunshine is made of super smooth, super silky silicone. Honestly, the softness and suppleness of the silicone might be the best thing about this product! Silicone is non-porous, non-toxic and free of phthalates or other harmful ingredients, making this toy 100% body-safe.
(I keep promising myself that one day I’ll stop writing this in reviews, since I don’t review unsafe toys… but then I remember that this review might be a reader’s first time visiting this blog, and might even be the first time they’ve ever heard that sex toys can sometimes be unsafe. So long-time readers, if it seems repetitive, I’m sorry – I try to review in such a way that it would make sense to a person who has never owned a sex toy or read a toy review before).
Clean your toy between uses with a body-safe sterile wipe (I get mine in bulk from medical suppliers) or some gentle soap and warm water. To sterilise it more thoroughly, use a 10% bleach solution and then rinse thoroughly (more on cleaning your toys here). If you’re sharing this toy, it’s the ideal shape to use with a condom. As ever, water-based lube is recommended – and you’ll want to use plenty of it for a toy this size.
How does it feel?
I found this toy enjoyable enough to use, but not perhaps for its intended purpose. I do not like internal vibrations at all – I find them uncomfortable at best, sometimes to the point of painful. My G-spot wants to be stroked, fucked, or left alone – not buzzed, ever.
However, I enjoyed the Yummy Sunshine as a dildo. The gentle ribbed shaft provides lovely stimulation and the curve of the tip is just right to hit my G-spot. The silicone is very soft, and it has a nice flexibility so you can angle it just right.
I also tried it as a clitoral vibrator, which I found fine but not earth-shattering. The vibrations were really neither rumbly enough nor powerful enough for my tastes. I can orgasm with the Yummy Sunshine, but it wouldn’t ever be high up on the list of toys I’d reach for.
The one way in which this toy did really come into its own was when I tried masturbating in a face-down position and grinding on it. The ridges and ripples of the shaft sliding along my vulva felt great.
Do I recommend it?
Overall, I had fun using the Yummy Sunshine, but I was left with the overwhelming impression of a toy that is… just okay. There’s nothing egregiously wrong with it, but it’s nothing to write home about either.
If you’re looking for a mid-price, mid-intensity, ribbed G-spot vibe, this might do the trick for you. But honestly overall I think you can get better toys for your money.

So I was thrilled when Tabitha offered me RO’s latest creation to review. Enter the Chaiamo!
Chaiamo Vital Details…
The Chaiamo is a straight vibrator with a gently tapered tip – the classic “lipstick” shape. (Though without the ridiculous “let’s try to actually disguise it as a lipstick” gimmick, thank Goddess).
It is a little over 6″ long in total, with 5″ being insertable. At the widest point, the width is 1.25″. The Chaiamo is fully waterproof and USB rechargeable. The advertising copy says it gives around 3 hours’ use for a single charge, but mine was definitely more than that – probably closer to 4 hours in total, over several uses.
The Chaiamo’s main body is made of soft silicone, with metallic accent at the base. This means, of course, that it is phthalate-free, non-porous and totally body safe.
As the Chaiamo is waterproof, you can clean it using warm water and a gentle soap, or use a body-safe medical wipe or 10% bleach solution to sterilise it more thoroughly. Remember not to boil-wash toys with motors!
The Chaiamo runs on a very simple one-button interface. The button (which sports the cute Rocks Off logo) is large and intuitively located on the base of the toy. It is easy and responsive to press. To turn the toy on or off, you simply hold down the button for 2 seconds.
The problem with one-button interfaces is that you cannot go back a step if you accidentally skip the setting you want – you have to scroll all the way back through. It’s an annoyance and the reason I generally prefer toys with +/- buttons, but it won’t ruin an otherwise good product for me.
The Chaiamo has ten settings in total: three constant speeds and seven patterns. I, along with (it seems) most of the sex blogging world, can honestly take or leave patterns. I occasionally enjoy playing around with them, especially if I’m doing a teasing or edging session, but if I just want to come then constant vibrations are where it’s at. Toy manufacturers, please consider this a plug for toys with more constant speeds and fewer patterns!
So how did it actually fare in use?
I’ve sometimes found Rocks Off toys, fab though they are, to not be quite powerful enough for my preferences. I love my Bamboo, but I tend to reach for it as a warm-up toy or when I am feeling especially sensitive.
So to say I was pleasantly surprised by the Chaiamo’s power was an understatement. At its higher speeds, this baby really packs a punch! I don’t know if RO have changed their motors generally or just used a different one in this slightly higher price-point toy, but good lord. And not only is it strong, but it’s rumbly, too. None of that horrible numbness you get from more buzzy toys. I am able to orgasm quickly and reliably with the Chaiamo, again and again. It’s been added to my easy-access basket of the toys I like best and use most often.
The gentle taper of the Chaiamo’s tip was great for me: I like a certain level of direct clit stimulation but not too pinpoint. (Remember the famed Zumio which I didn’t particularly like?) Be aware that if you like very pinpoint stimulation, this toy probably won’t be a good fit for you. But for my preferences, it was brilliant! Sometimes, it works really well for me by just pressing its length against my vulva and clit.
If you’re looking for a powerful and versatile clit/G-spot toy at an affordable price, look no further! A great offering from one of my favourite companies. I can’t wait to see what they come out with next.
