[Toy Review] Pillow Talk Cheeky Wireless Wand Vibrator

I fell in love with Pillow Talk when I reviewed the Sassy a few months back. So, when I got the chance to try out another of their range, I was only too happy to oblige. Even more exciting: it’s a wand, and we all know how I feel about those!

Once again, this product was sent to me for review by the lovely team at Self & More, a boutique woman-owned sex shop based in the UK.

Let’s take a closer look at the Pillow Talk Cheeky.

Pillow Talk Cheeky: Basic Info

The Pillow Talk Cheeky is a wireless wand style vibrator, 8″ in length. In the box you’ll find the toy, charging cable, a branded storage pouch, instructions, and even a little cleaning brush to help you keep your toy in tip-top condition. How cool is that?

The Cheeky comes in a gorgeous turquoise/teal green colour, which is one of my favourite colours in general. I particularly love it for sex toys because it’s just so unusual (and pretty!) The Cheeky is also available in pink, if that’s more your thing.

The Pillow Talk Cheeky is 100% water resistant. It is rechargeable via the included USB cable. By the way, since I got a bit confused: remove the little green or pink piece in the base of the handle to reveal the charging port. It also comes with a travel lock, for those times when we can eventually travel again… (*sighs longingly*)

That Motor Tho…

I was expecting great things from the Pillow Talk Cheeky, given that amazing motor in the Sassy. I was not disappointed! The power starts off at an impressive rumble and builds to knock-your-socks-off intensity. I don’t really have much more to say on this subject – it is simply epic!

User Experience & Interface

The Pillow Talk Cheeky utilises a single button interface. The button, by the way, is a light-catching Swarovski crystal – super cute for a #SparkleFemme like myself.

The controls on this toy are a little unusual. You press the button once to switch it on and off, and then hold it down to ramp up the power. I actually like this, because it allows for really fine grading on exactly what level of power you want. Getting from the lowest to the highest setting takes a full ten seconds, to give you an idea of how much range this thing has!

The light will flash while you’re turning up the power, then stop flashing when you’ve reached the highest level.

The Cheeky is lovely to hold thanks to the plushy soft silicone and gently cushioned handle. The neck is flexible, making it easy to angle the toy just right, however you prefer your stimulation. It’s also relatively light, and the vibrations are concentrated in the head and don’t transmit too much through the handle.

So are there any downsides to the Pillow Talk Cheeky? Honestly, the only one I can find is the battery life. I charged it fully and it lasted less than an hour. This isn’t actually a massive problem in the context of a toy that typically gets me off in less than 5 minutes, but it’s something to be aware of if you take longer to come or like to go several times in one session!

Verdict

The Pillow Talk Cheeky is a big winner. Powerful, ergonomic, and cute into the bargain! I love it and I’ve already found myself reaching for it regularly. It’s an ideal toy when I want the broad and powerful stimulation of a wand, but don’t have the energy to hold a full-size one.

The Pillow Talk Cheeky retails for £50.00. See below for a discount code!

[Impact Toy Review] Sportsheets Vegan Saffron Layer Paddle

(I hope it goes without saying that what follows is a personal stance only, and I cast absolutely no judgement on people who make different choices – ethics are complex, personal, and multi-faceted, and we should all trust one another to make the best decisions for ourselves and our circumstances.)

I’ve mentioned before that I have complicated feelings about leather as a material. I love the look, the feel, the smell… but it also poses an ethical dilemma. I don’t eat meat and have recently been changing aspects of my diet to move closer to veganism, and for a long time I’ve only purchased vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics. So if I don’t eat animals, is it ethical to wear or use products made from them?

Even though leather is a meat industry byproduct (kind of, it’s actually more complex than that), I still worry that buying it supports that industry – even indirectly. The process of leather tanning is also environmentally problematic… though so are many leather alternatives made from polyurethane and similar plastic-based materials.

There are no easy answers to any of this, and I don’t have a hard and fast personal stance on leather for myself yet. I’m leaning towards continuing to love and use what I already own, but not buying any more new items. But that could change.

I share all this to provide a little context to my interest in faux-leather, leather-alternative, and vegan-friendly kink gear. Like this Saffron Layer Paddle from Sportsheets that I’m reviewing today, courtesy of my new friends at Self&More – a woman-owned, gender-inclusive and body-positive sex shop.

Sportsheets Saffron Layer Paddle

The Saffron Layer Paddle comes from Sportsheets’ Saffron range of vegan faux-leather kink products in black and red. It features three layered straps which are coated in fuzzy suede-like material (also vegan) on one side. The stitching is strong and holds up under use.

The paddle is black and red, which are pretty much the quintessential “kink colours”. The outward facing surfaces are red, and the front side of the handle features a polka dot design.

The Saffron Layer Paddle features a loop handle which you can wrap around your wrist while you’re wielding the paddle, or use to hang it for convenient storage. A small tag bears the Sportsheets insignia.

This paddle is 12.2″ long from tip to tip, and 2″ across. It’s super light, which makes it comfortable to hold and easy to wield. I don’t really top very often but on the rare occasions I do, I like toys that I can use until my bottom has had enough (as opposed to when my weak arms give out!)

Its Bark is Worse than Its Bite…

This probably isn’t a paddle for serious pain players, as the impact it delivers is on the gentler side. Pro tip: if you hit with the longest layer impacting the body first, you get a more impressive sting. The impact is pretty surface-level. Since the paddle is so light, you’re unlikely to get any significant thud out of it.

This is one of those paddles that sounds worse than it is. Thanks to the three layers smacking together, it provides a loud and satisfying THWACK even without putting much force behind it. If you’re looking for something that sounds impressive without needing to actually hit very hard, layered paddles are the way to go!

Safety Considerations

Paddles are one of the safest impact toys you can play with (floggers are slightly more dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing, and whips are yikes-just-don’t-go-there-without-expert-tuition!) You’re really unlikely to do any damage with a light paddle like this one, so you can play without worrying – even if you’re a complete beginner.

Just remember the golden rules: never hit the joints, spine, lower back and kidney area, head, or face. Aim for fleshy and padded areas like the butt, thighs, and shoulder blades.

Verdict

This is a well-made and reliable basic piece that will serve you well and last a long time if you take care of it. If you’re new to kink or prefer playing on the lighter side and are looking for a vegan-friendly paddle, this is a solid buy.

[Toy Review] Jopen Key Comet Wand

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.

Verdict

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
