I absolutely love the idea of Sexy Liberation, a company that not only sells sex toys but also offers a small selection for free (for those outside the US, you have to pay shipping, but it’s pretty reasonable.)
“Many people don’t have access to or haven’t been exposed to the exciting world of sexual exploration, we want to help people, especially women, by being a stepping stone. Personal experimentation with sex aids can help women discover and embrace their own sources of pleasure. And a woman who knows herself sexually will feel more confident talking honestly with her partner about her needs and desires. If you are woman in a relationship that is having trouble getting off, we are here for you.”
And for that, they are to be applauded.
Unfortunately, there’s little point giving out free toys if the toys themselves are absolute crap. This fucking thing is laughably weak, annoyingly buzzy, aesthetically stupid (I don’t need my sex toys to look like a fucking lipstick!) and overall just completely pointless. Not to mention it kept popping open and the battery falling out!
Honestly, even if it’s free, just don’t bother. You deserve better! Your genitals deserve better! Get a basic vibrator from Lovehoney on one of their sale days instead. I persevered through several attempts to get myself off with this useless thing, even watching some super-hot porn, but in the end me and my numbed-out, pissed off clit just had to give up.
My Ratings (all scores out of 5★)
If you don’t qualify to get the toy for free, it’s $12.99 (about £10.) But even this small amount of money is way too much to spend when weighed against how useless it is. You could spend the same or even slightly less and have a chance of getting something that might actually get you off.
It’s pretty clearly ABS plastic, but for some reason is described on the site in the vaguest and most uninformative terms possible. It’s described as a “firm, non-silicone plastic.” What the fuck does that mean? ABS plastic is at least non-porous and non-toxic, but Sexy Liberation are losing points here for not
It looks like a lipstick in a horrible colour. For saying this company is supposedly about “liberation,” the lipstick thing to me just screams of “you need to be ashamed of owning sex toys and disguise them to look like other things!” I’m not here for it. Also it’s pink.
Ease of Use: ★★
It’s super light and operates on a simple on-off twist motion. Unfortunately, if you turn it too far or just very slightly wrong, the battery pops out.
Ease of care & cleaning: ★★
The Lipstick Bullet can be wiped clean – I recommend a body-safe sterile wipe from medical suppliers. It’s apparently waterproof (not sure how far I’d trust that claim though, given the overall lack of structural integrity and tendency to fall apart in my fucking hand.) Luckily, you won’t need to clean it as the odds of anyone using this thing more than once are frankly close to zero.
This toy has exactly two functions: on and off. The lipstick shape means you have a narrow edge for precision stimulation and a wider side for more general vibrations, but honestly it’s so small and weak enough that I can’t bring myself to care about pinpoint or broad stimulation.
Pathetic to the point of useless. Buzzier than an entire hive of bees. If my clitoris could talk, it would be yelling “WHAT IS THE GODDAMN POINT OF THIS!?”
Overall Score: ★
Unfortunately, though I love the idea of this scheme, I am going to throw this toy straight in the trash as soon as I’ve stopped yelling on the internet about how terrible it is.
