[Toy Review] Lovehoney x ROMP Switch Suction Clitoral Stimulator

I love many of Womanizer’s products and their suction-based clitoral stimulators are second to none. (Which is probably why so many companies have shamelessly ripped them off since!) But there’s one issue: most of them are really, really expensive.

This puts first-time users off. And I get it. I probably wouldn’t spend £70 for the most basic model (or £170 for a fancy high-end version) of something if I wasn’t pretty damn sure it would work for me. Reviewers and fans have been calling for a more affordable version for ages.

Well, here it is. Let’s take a closer look at the ROMP Switch, an exclusive collaboration between Lovehoney and ROMP by Womanizer.

Get Switch-ed On

The ROMP Switch is a clitoral suction toy utilising the same trademarked Pleasure Air technology as the rest of the Womanizer range. It came attractively packaged in a branded green box with a picture of the toy on the front:

Lovehoney Womanizer ROMP Switch sex toy packaging

The Switch measures 5 inches in length and features a tapered ergonomic handle. Its body is made of ABS plastic in an attractive lilac purple, and its nozzle is made of silicone, meaning that the toy is 100% non-porous and body-safe. The nozzle is removeable for easy cleaning.

ROMP Switch clitoral suction toy

The ROMP Switch is a battery-powered toy, requiring 2 x AAA batteries (included.) You’ll get a seriously impressive 300 minutes (around 5 hours) of runtime out of a set of batteries! For reference, I’ve never had a rechargeable toy last that long on a single charge. The ROMP Switch is splashproof but not waterproof, so bear that in mind if you’re a fan of bath wanking.

The ROMP Switch retails for a very affordable £34.99, and you can get a further 10% off by using my code “coffkink10” at checkout. If you’re specifically looking for a rechargeable toy, you can get the rechargeable ROMP Shine for £15 more.

Use and Experience

Yes, yes, yes! Ultimately, the litmus test for any sex toy is “does it get me off reliably?” and dear God, yes, the ROMP Switch delivers in that regard.

Nozzle of clitoral suction vibrator

The shape is good, and the gentle curve means it was easy to get a good seal around my clit with the nozzle. I found it easiest to hold the toy with the handle pointing downwards, but some may find rotating it 90 degrees (so the handle points up towards your stomach) is more comfortable. Experiment and see what works – there’s no right or wrong way to do it.

The ROMP Switch has six power settings, ranging from a gentle lapping up to “powerful” and then “holy shit”. The two-button interface is simple, and – praise the sex toy deities! – features +/- controls so you can change the setting either up or down. The buttons are easy to press, intuitively placed on the front of the toy in the middle, and easy to feel for without looking.

The ROMP Switch’s nozzle is quite firm, and I found that adding plenty of lube made my experience much more pleasurable and fun. Swirl some water-based lube on the toy’s nozzle and/or your body before you get started.

It’s important to note that if you’re used to traditional vibrators, suction clitoral stimulators feel very different. Some people liken it to the feeling of cunnilingus, though I personally don’t experience them as similar. The best way I can describe it is a kind of very rapid tapping sensation on your clit.

The ROMP Switch gets me off every bit as well as many of the more expensive suction toys I’ve tried, and better than some. Yes, it’s lean on extra features (for example, it doesn’t offer additional vibrations, patterns, or a fancy silencing function.) But all those things are just that: extras, not essentials. This is a simple but effective toy that does the job it’s designed to do, and does it damn well.

Womanizer ROMP Switch clitoral stimulator with pleasure air technology

If I have one complaint about this toy, it’s the noise. It is noticeably noisier than some of the pricier suction sex toys I’ve used, though the noise is somewhat dampened when it’s pressed against the body. I didn’t find it particularly intrusive or problematic, but it’s something to be aware of if discretion is important to you.

Final Thoughts and Verdict

If you’ve never tried a clitoral suction toy and you’re curious, you could do a lot worse than the ROMP Switch. Likewise if you’re into that kind of sensation and you’re on a budget.

Effective, affordable, and cute – what’s not to like?

5 Best Vibrators Under $45 (North American edition)

I did a UK edition of this post last week, so if you’re looking for the best vibrators on a budget in the UK, check that out. Because different products are available in different places, I thought two versions would make the most sense.

5 of the Best Vibrators Under $45

Let’s dive in. Here some five of the best vibrators you can get in North America for under $40 US. As with the UK edition, everything listed here is a product I’ve actually tried and actually love.

By the way: I picked $45 as the cut-off for the North American version of this post because $45 is around £33, so the actual price-points are very similar.

Lovehoney Humdinger, $29.99

Humdinger vibrator by Lovehoney. External vibe for clit play

It’s the innovative shape that really makes this one, for me. The motor is powerful and rumbly (surprisingly so for a battery-operated toy) and the combo of the clit-hugging hood shape and the hard nub on the back is close to perfection.

Get it here.

Blush Exposed Nocturnal, $33

Blush Exposed Nocturnal bullet vibe for clit play, one of the best vibrators under $45

Ever since I first tried it, I’ve been obsessed with this amazing little bullet vibrator from Blush. It’s massively powerful, rumbly, has amazing battery life, and never fails to get the job done quickly and reliably.

Get it here.

Noje Mini Wand, $35.99

Noje Mini Wand, one of the best vibrators under $45 in the US

This is the second Blush Novelties toy on this list for good reason. They just produce so many great products at affordable price points! This teeny tiny little wand is not only powerful and well-made, but also pretty af. I love the mint green colour!

Get it here.

Satisfyer Number 2, $40

Satisfyer Number 2 clitoral suction vibrator

This is a battery-powered version of Satisfyer’s best-selling clitoral suction stimulator, making it more affordable. It might be a more basic equivalent but it still features 11 suction intensity levels and a body-safe silicone nozzle.

(I know it’s not technically a vibrator but it still meets the spirit of this list!)

Get it here.

VeDo Izzy, $43

VeDo Izzy, one of the best vibrators under $45 in North America

Izzy by VeDo is a surprisingly powerful and surprisingly affordable clitoral vibe that I absolutely loved. It’s a fairly standard lay-on/pebble shape, but that nub at the top really elevates it for me. It’s amazing for both pinpoint and broader clitoral stimulation.

Get it here.

5 Best Vibrators Under £35 (UK edition.)

You don’t have to spend a fortune to get amazing sex toys! In fact, some of my favourite toys are relatively affordable (meanwhile I’ve tried some abusrdly expensive ones that didn’t feel worth the money at all.)

I’ve been pondering this piece for a while and I’ve finally decided I’m going to do a UK edition and a North American edition, because different products are available in different places.

5 of the Best Vibrators Under £35

So without further ado, here some five of the best vibrators under £35 that you can get in the UK. Everything listed here is a product I’ve actually tried and actually love.

Rocks Off Bamboo (£16.99)

Rocks Off Bamboo gold lipstick vibrator for clit stimulation

I love Rocks Off (that’s why they appear on this list twice!) They produce some of the best vibrators at affordable prices that I’ve ever encountered.

The Bamboo is a basic bullet vibrator that pretty much does what it says on the tin. Its tapered lipstick-shaped tip is great for precision clitoral stimulation. It’s not knock-your-socks-off powerful, but for a small battery-powered bullet that’s under £20 it’s pretty damn good.

Buy it here and get 10 off with code coffkink10.

Lovehoney Humdinger (£24.99)

Humdinger vibrator by Lovehoney. External vibe for clit play

This one was a real surprise to me. Many of Lovehoney’s own-brand basic vibrators use surprisingly decent and rumbly motors, but it’s the shape of the Humdinger that really blew me away.

The cup-shaped head surrounds your clit, spreading stimulation across the whole area.

Buy it here and get 10% off with code coffkink10.

Blush Exposed Noctural (£26.99)

The Exposed Nocturnal lipstick buillet vibrator

This is simply the best bullet vibrator I have ever tried. It pretty much lives by my bed and is never out of charge. It’s unbelievably powerful and rumbly, and has the rare honour of having patterns I actually like.

As a bonus, the battery life lasts ages even on full power.

Buy it here and get 10% off with code coffeeandkink, or here.

Lovehoney Ignite Bullet

Lovehoney Ignite bullet vibrator, one of the best vibrators at an affordable price

When I reviewed this toy, I said it had amongst the best motors I had felt in a toy at this price point. I stand by that assessment now! It is a great body-safe basic with 20 different settings and patterns. Ideal for figuring out what you like or just getting lots of different sensations out of one toy!

Buy it here and get 10% off with code coffkink10.

Rocks Off Chaiamo (£33.99)

The Rocks Off Chaiamo vibrator in black, one of the best vibrators under £30

Rocks Off’s second entry on this list is a versatile vibe that can work well for the clit or the G-spot. The Chaiamo is either a large bullet or a smallish internal vibe, depending on which way you look at it. Either way, it packs a power punch and is pleasantly rumbly.

Buy it here.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, which can mean only one thing: a host of new lingerie and sex toy offerings! This is my third review of Lovehoney’s new Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired Captivate range (check out parts 1 and 2 here.)

By the way: there’s still time to join our free smut slam if you’re looking for a fun and socially-distanced Valentine’s Day activity!

Today we’re looking at…

Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress

I love one-piece lingerie. I love it because it’s usually relatively comfortable, easy to wear, and easy to get on and off during sex club adventures. (*sigh* sex clubs… remember those?) It’s also often more forgiving for those of us who are well-endowed in the boob department.

So I was excited to try out the Captivate Spanking Dress.

Fifty Shades of Grey spanking dress packaging

It came packaged in a cardboard sleeve featuring a picture of the model and a hilarious(ly terrible) Fifty Shades quote on the back.

Fifty Shades of Grey Fifty Shades Darker quote

Inside, the dress was packaged inside a plastic film wrapper, with a piece of cardboard inside to help it keep its shape.

Lovehoney Captivate Spanking Dress

First impressions: wow, this is super tiny! I can’t see any way I’m ever going to fit in that! However, I quickly realised that it is also super stretchy. This “one size” version fits me (a size 12/14) comfortably, and is supposed to fit anyone from size 8-16. There’s also two plus-size versions, one to fit sizes 18-24 and one to fit sizes 26-30.

Woman in Fifty Shades of Grey lingerie black lace spanking dress

The floral mesh is pretty and feminine with just a little bit of a kink-inspired edge. The skirt reaches to just below the butt, and the hem and neckline are edged with pretty floral lace trim. The deep V-neck gives amazing cleavage, and the collar-style neck adds to the soft BDSM aesthetic.

At the back, the butt is fully cut away which is both sexy as hell and allows easy access for impact play. Wearing it just makes me want to bend over and get spanked!

The Captivate Black Lace Spanking Dress retails for £24.99 from Lovehoney.

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Fifty Shades of Grey Captivate Bra Set

I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m not a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. At alllll. But, as I said a long time ago, a lot of people are – and if they’re going to look for sexy products based on that franchise, I want them to at least get decent quality stuff for their money.

With that said, I was excited to receive three items of lingerie to review from Lovehoney’s new Fifty Shades inspired line in time for Valentine’s day. Today, we’re looking at the Black and Gold Captivate Bra Set.

First impressions…

This set is a bit of a departure from my usual tastes. I don’t normally wear anything yellow/gold (not even yellow gold jewellery.) It just doesn’t really fit with my aesthetic.

With that said, I did immediately think how pretty this set was when I took it out of the packaging. It’s a two-piece bra-and-knickers set, black and decorated with embroidered gold roses. It’s elegant and it adds a different and unusual twist to your standard black lingerie.

Woman wearing black and gold lingerie Captivate Bra Set

The bra is a pretty straightforward full cup, longline underwired bra. A detachable satin strap leads from between the cups up to the attached choker, which is made of the same black lace with gold roses. The high-waisted knickers feature strappy sides and back for an unusual and sexy bondage-inspired look, plus more little roses at the point where the butt meets the lower back.

Womans butt in black and gold thong

The Captivate line is at the higher end of Lovehoney’s price range, with this Captivate Bra Set retailing for £59.99. There are a lot of gorgeous pieces in the collection, so do take a look!

Comfort and Fit

I have encountered, yet again, the eternal lingerie problem of My Boobs Just Don’t Fucking Fit.

I’m a size 14 and I ordered the large as recommended. The knickers fit me super well, and every strap is adjustable so you can get the best fit for you.

The bra though… yeah.

I understand why these lines are done in simple S/M/L sizes to make them more affordable, but it’s a real gamble whether the corresponding cup sizes will work for any individual wearer. If I had to guess, I’d say maybe the large would fit a D or DD cup? My poor G cups don’t stand a chance and just ended up feeling squished and stabbed by wires, with folds of boob spilling out every time I stand up or move.

The bra back band and straps are adjustable, so that’s a plus. But be aware of the sizing issue if you have boobs that are much bigger or smaller than the average (whatever that means) for your body size.

Look and Materials

The Captivate Bra Set is made of black satin with black lace and gold embroidery accent. The fabrics are high-quality and luxurious, and feel lovely and soft against my skin. Its clear to me that these pieces are well-made and, with the right care, should last a good long time.

Woman posing in Lovehoney lingerie Captivate Bra Set

I think this set is objectively very pretty, but I’m not sure it looks great on me. The shape of the knickers is flattering and enhances my curves and butt, but I’m not convinced the yellow/gold is a great colour on me.

Verdict

I’ll almost certainly wear the knickers again, because they fit well and I love the shape. The bra, sadly, is a complete no-go for me and I’ll probably pass it on to someone else with a smaller cup size.

A lovely set for the right wearer, but not a big winner for me.

Check out the range.

[Lingerie Review] Passion Flower Bra Set

The last 11 days have just flown by, and today is the last review of my #12DaysofLovehoney series! Do check back tomorrow, though, because I have a very special giveaway for you all. For now, though, it’s time to look at the Passion Flower Bra Set from Lovehoney’s Passion Flower lingerie line.

By the way: read the entire series while you’re here!

Purple Passion

I’ve adored the aesthetic of the Passion Flower range ever since it first popped up on the Lovehoney site earlier this year. So I was thrilled to be offered the Passion Flower Bra Set for review as part of this project.

Me wearing the Passion Flower Bra Set

Passion Flower is a range of purple lace lingerie with pink and white flowers. This set consists of three pieces: an underwired halter-neck bra, a thong, and a suspender belt.

It’s worth noting that the suspenders are NOT detatchable, so you’ll need to wear stockings to get the full effect. Of course, you can ditch the suspender belt and just wear the bra and thong if stockings aren’t your thing.

The bra features a little silver charm in the shape of the Lovehoney heart insignia, and both the suspender belt and bra feature cute pink criss-cross detailing.

First impressions? I like what I see. Let’s try it on…

Fit

The Passion Flower Bra Set comes in “one size” (to fit a UK 8-16) and plus size (to fit a UK 18-24.) If you’ve been reading my lingerie reviews for a while, you’ll know I’m not generally a fan of “one size” fits – bodies are just too diverse and varied for many people to get a reliable fit.

Me in the purple floral Passion Flower Bra Set

With that said, the Passion Flower Bra Set actually does a pretty admirable job of being suitable for a range of sizes. It is adjustable in multiple places, from the back band and halter tie of the bra, to the waistbands of the knickers and suspender belt, and even the length of the suspenders.

It’s pretty suitable for a range of bust sizes, too. Once I adjusted the band size appropriately, the underwires sat securely under my boobs and the soft lace cups actually contained my G-cups.

Woman in floral lace bra from Lovehoney lingerie set

The bra is a bit fiddly to get into. This is because the fastening mechanism isn’t a traditional bra clasp, but a simple suspender-style hook that’s pretty small. I found it easiest to put it on backwards, fasten it at the front, and then twist it to be on the right way.

Comfort-wise, the lace is very soft and a delight to wear.

Look

I adore the look of the whole Passion Flower range! The bright colour is eye-catching and the floral design is super fun and femme. I feel flirty and feminine when I wear this set.

Woman in purple thong and purple suspender belt

The wired cups and halterneck design also make it possible to get pretty epic cleavage out of this set, especially if you’re well-endowed in the boob department. The criss-cross detailing draws attention to the cleavage and waistline, while the sheer lace reveals tantalising hints of skin.

Pair with nude stockings for the complete look.

The Verdict

Playful yet elegant, stylish and striking… the Passion Flower Bra Set is an absolute win for me. I loved wearing it and it is definitely going to become a firm favourite.

An ideal addition to your bedroom/sex club wardrobe or a fun sexy gift for the femme in your life.

Get the set for a bargain £24.99 from Lovehoney.

[Toy Review] Lovehoney Best Night Ever Couple’s Sex Toy Kit

It’s already day ten of the #12DaysofLovehoney project! After today, I have just one more review to publish and then the very special giveaway coming on Saturday. Today, we’re looking at Lovehoney’s “Best Night Ever” Couple’s Sex Toy Kit.

Oh, and while you’re here, check out the whole series!

What’s in the Box and Who Is It For?

The Best Night Ever kit is one of Lovehoney’s sex toy bundles. It includes five toys:

  • Vibrating silicone butt plug
  • Silver bullet vibe
  • Stretchy silicone cock ring that can be used with or without the bullet vibrator
  • Finger vibrator
  • Reversible penis stroker
Box of Lovehoney Best Night Ever sex toy kit for couples

This kit is designed for a couple consisting of a person with a penis and a person with a vulva. (The packaging and ad copy does, sadly, use gendered language along the “for him” and “for her” lines.) So bear that in mind as we proceed with the review. I’d love to see Lovehoney come out with some additional, similar kits that are geared at couples with two penis owners or two vulva owners!

Sex toys for couples in Lovehoney Best Night Ever kit

I thought I’d look at each item in turn, and then at the set as a whole.

Silicone Butt Plug

This is probably the best item in the kit from a quality point of view. It’s a little over 5″ in length, of which 4″ are insertable. It tapers to a narrow tip, making it comfortable to insert, and the silicone base makes it both body-safe and comfortable to wear for some time.

Silicone butt plug from Lovehoney couples sex toys kit

The silicone butt plug takes 1 AAA battery, and offers 3 vibration speeds and 7 patterns. The vibrations are mediocre in strength and fairly buzzy, but the plug itself is of great quality. If you’re looking for a basic, slimline plug, the Best Night Ever kit has got you covered.

Silver Bullet Vibe

As far as I can tell, this is near identical to the silver bullet vibe that Lovehoney sells as a separate product… and that was the first sex toy I ever bought at the tender age of 18!

It’s made of hard ABS plastic and takes one AAA battery. Like the butt plug, it features 3 speeds and 7 patterns. I think it’s the same motor that’s in the butt plug, but the vibrations feel a little stronger. That’s probably because hard plastic doesn’t dampen the vibrations in the same way that silicone does.

Still not super powerful and still pretty buzzy, but overall not a bad first vibe for someone who doesn’t need very intense stimulation to get off. My first little Lovehoney bullet vibe served me well for a good couple of years!

Cock Ring

This silicone cock ring can be used by itself or with the bullet vibe. It features two rings, one to go around the penis and one behind the testicles. The rings are very slim and stretchy, allowing them to fit snugly but comfortably around most penises.

Silver bullet vibrator and silicone cock ring

The purpose of a cock ring is to restrict blood flow out of the penis, making the wearer’s erection harder and longer lasting. At first glance, I wasn’t sure this ring would do anything. However, it’s stronger than it looks!

Using it with the bullet vibe can provide some gentle additional stimulation which can be pleasurable for both the wearer and their partner.

Finger Vibe

The finger vibrator is the weakest aspect of this kit, for me. For one thing, the ring you use to put it on your finger is ridiculously small. I have pretty tiny hands and found it too tight and uncomfortable on any but my little finger.

Finger vibrator from Lovehoney sex toys couples kit

Second, the vibrations are truly pathetic. I didn’t know it was possible for something to be so buzzy it makes my clitoris itch, but here we are. There’s no way this would ever do anything for me except numb me out and make me grumpy.

Reversible Stroker

The reversible stroker provides two different sensations. It’s tight but stretchy, so whatever size your penis is you can expect a snug and pleasurable fit. You’ll need to use plenty of lube both inside the stroker and on the penis, or it could be uncomfortable.

The reversible stroker is made of a TPE style soft plastic which, while not toxic and safe for external play, is a porous material. That means it will degrade over time. You’ll probably get a few months out of it, but I recommend investing in a silicone stroker once you’ve established that you like the sensation!

Best Night Ever Kit: Overall Contents & Value

The Best Night Ever sex toy kit is a mixed bag. The items are of decent quality and made of body-safe materials. However, where it really falls down is in the strength (or lack thereof) of the motors.

Best Night Ever sex toys for couples kit

That being said, this kit retails for a pretty affordable £39.99, which is cheaper than buying all the products separately. If you’re new to toys and just trying things out to see what you like, this kit could be a good place to start. For people who are just looking for a few basic staples, it will probably serve your needs, too. If you’re after more powerful toys, though, skip the kit and invest in one powerful vibrator instead.

[Toy Review] Clone a Willy

Have you ever wanted a lifesize, silicone replica of your own (or your partner’s) penis? Well, you’re in luck! Clone a Willy is a company that makes kits that allow you to make a replica dick at home. There’s also now a Clone a Pussy, by the way! Lovehoney kindly sent me the Clone a Willy kit for Day 9 of #12DaysofLovehoney, and Mr CK and I had quite the adventure making it.

Clone a Willy Kit
Image credit: Lovehoney

Let’s see how we got on, shall we? Oh, and check out the whole review series here.

What’s in the Clone a Willy Kit?

The Clone a Willy kit comes packaged in a plastic tube, which also serves as the molding tube. Inside, you’ll find:

  • Instruction leaflet
  • Packet of molding power
  • 2 tubs of silicone
  • Mini thermometer
  • Single speed plastic vibrator
  • Stirring stick
Some of the contents of the Clone a Willy Kit

It’s worth noting that the kit doesn’t include every single thing you need. Fortunately, everything else you need is likely something you already have. You’ll need to have to hand:

  • A mixing pot to mix the molding powder (we used a plastic jug to make pouring easier)
  • A large wooden spoon
  • A disposable container to mix the silicone in (we used a well-cleaned plastic takeaway tub)
  • Means of measuring water in precise quantities
  • A way of keeping time (we used the timer function on my smartphone)
  • A square of scrap cardboard
Two pots of liquid silicone mix

How Does it Work?

The process of casting your penis isn’t all that difficult, but it takes a bit of precision and care.

First, you’ll need to cut the tube to size. It should be half an inch longer than your erect penis. Next, you’ll need to measure out 1 3/4 cups (that’s 414ml) of lukewarm water and let it cool to exactly 90F (32C). That’s what the thermometer is for. Be aware that this can take longer than you think!

Once the water is at the right temperature, you mix the molding powder in and stir it for exactly 45 seconds. Pour the mix into the tube, insert your erect penis, and hold it still until the mix starts to set. The instructions say 1-2 minutes, but this wasn’t quite enough. All in, it took around 4 minutes.

Voila, you have a mold! Then all you have to do is mix up the silicone, pour it into the mold, add the vibrator, and leave it to set for 24 hours.

How Hard is It?

The tricksy part of this whole process is the precision – getting the right amount of water, making sure it’s exactly the right temperature, and stirring for the right amount of time. Once the molding power goes in the water you have to act quickly, so make sure the dick being cast is erect and ready to go before you start mixing! (Staying hard is also a challenge when your dick is in lukewarm molding mix, I’m told. Have some porn or a sexy naked partner to hand!)

Mr CK has quite a lot of body hair, so we applied a generous amount of vaseline before we started casting. If you’re on the hairy side, I highly recommend this approach, otherwise you might end up getting an unwanted wax job!

The other thing to bear in mind is that this process can get messy! You have to hold the tube full of liquid against your groin for several minutes in a slightly upward-tilted angle, and some WILL spill out. Put a towel or an old sheet down before you start, and don’t do this in a carpeted area if you can possibly help it.

Clean-up isn’t too difficult. The molding mix washes off skin easily. Pro tip for cleaning your utensils and mixing bowl: wait for the leftover mix to completely dry, and then it will just peel away.

The molding is by far the hardest bit. Once that’s sorted, mixing up and pouring the silicone is a breeze. The one thing to be aware of is that you have to mix the silicone for several minutes (we did about 8 minutes) and then pour it as slowly as possible.

So how did it turn out?

We got a very promising mold from our dick casting! And the silicone is the most gorgeously bright and vibrant colour:

Silicone mix from the Clone a Willy Kit

As per the advice, we decided to leave the mold to set overnight and then pour the silicone the next morning. As such, the final product is currently setting and I’ll add some photos tomorrow. Watch this space!

The Outcome

Ta-da!

Finished purple silicone dildo made with Clone a Willy Kit

After this adventure, I have a newfound appreciation for folks who make beautiful dildos. This came out pretty well for a first go – its structurally sound, useable, and actually a pretty good likeness to its, erm, source material.

But it’s still a far cry from what the professionals can do. Support your favourite lovely dildo-makers, people!

(But also clone your/your partner’s dick at home with one of these kits, because it’s fun!)

Final Verdict

This whole experience was messy, awkward, and absolutely hilarious. You’ll need a good sense of humour if you want to make a Clone a Willy, but we had tonnes of fun making ours!

The Clone a Willy kit retails for £34.99 from Lovehoney.

I’ll just leave you with this:

Me: “What do you think people do with their cloned dick if they have a really bad breakup?”
Him: (beat) “Will it blend?”

[Lingerie Review] Lovehoney Empress Body

Today is the first of two lingerie reviews that will be featured in my #12DaysofLovehoney series. I first received pictures of the Empress collection quite a while ago, and I was smitten from first sight! It was hard to choose the piece I liked most, but I eventually settled on the Empress body.

Let’s dive in, shall we? Oh, and while you’re here, check out all the posts in this series.

Empress Body: First Impressions

Empress is a line of black and red lingerie from Lovehoney. The line features four different styles, and all are also available in plus size variations.

The Empress Body is a one-piece black lace body with red satin detailing. It features a plunging neckline, high-cut leg, and low back. There are also removeable suspenders, so you can wear it with matching stockings or by itself. Here’s how it looks on the model:

My first impression when I took the Empress Body out of the packaging was of quality and luxury. The materials feel lovely and it’s obviously beautifully made. I couldn’t wait to try it on and see how it looked.

Fit & Comfort

The Empress Body fits me really well! The waist band is stretchy and the bra style clasps at the back have three settings. The shoulder straps and suspenders are also highly adjustable.

It even contains my boobs reliably unless I lie down on my side (in which case they do whatever they damn well please and I am yet to find the garment that can stop them!) It’s nice to have an item of lingerie I can walk around in without feeling as though I’m having to tuck my nipples back into it every few seconds.

I wear a size 14 and I ordered the large as recommended, which ran true to size.

The Empress Body is even reasonably comfortable. The lace is soft and feels nice against my skin, and there are no uncomfortable wires or pinchy/scratchy bits.

Another nice touch is the popper fastenings on the crotch. My partner appreciated being able to pop them open and says they give the Empress Body an extra few points from him!

Look & Materials

The Empress Body is just absolutely gorgeous! The scalloped lace is luxurious and elegent, while the red detailing is super striking.

I particularly love the shape of this piece. The red band sits at the narrowest part of the waist and creates a gorgeous hourglass silhouette. And the plunging neckline emphasises the breasts and creates phenomenal cleavage!

I feel so sexy in this item. It’s been a long time since a piece of lingerie made me feel this good.

Final thoughts

I absolutely adore this piece – I’m so, so impressed with it! I hope we can go to sex clubs again sometime in the not too distant future so that I can wear it and show it off. I think it would pair wonderfully with some ruby red sky-high heels.

The Empress Body retails for £29.99 – a steal for a piece of this quality! It’s a new favourite.
