[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:

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.

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?

[Toy Review] Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator

There are some sex acts that are relatively easy to mimic with toys, such as penetrative sex. There are others which are more difficult, though companies have tried valiantly – the blowjob being one such example. And then there are acts that it is seemingly impossible to replicate with a toy. Exhibit A: cunnilingus.

Suction toys have claimed for years that they simulate oral sex. Toys like the Sqweel have tried and, if the reviews are to be believed, largely failed. Today I’m reviewing the Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator, another toy that claims to simulate cunnilingus. But how did it fare? Let’s find out!

Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator

The Sohimi Tongue Vibrator is a mini clit tickler toy, featuring a large rounded base topped with a small flickering tongue. When the toy is on, the tongue oscillates or flicks rapidly back and forth.

When I unboxed this toy, the first thing that struck me was how small it is. Yes, I know it’s called a mini vibrator, but I wasn’t expecting it to be quite this small. It measures a petite 3″ in height and 2″ in diameter. The tongue is about 1″ long. Thanks to its tiny size, it is super light and fits neatly in my small hand.

The best way I can describe this toy is to say that it reminds me of a cross between a flower and one of those plastic candles with artificial flames that you get on restaurant tables.

Sohimi tongue vibrator for women and people with vulvas

The Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator is 100% waterproof and rechargeable via the included USB charging base. It is made of body-safe and surprisingly soft matte silicone in an attractive shade of purple. And yes, it’s definitely real silicone!

Does it feel like cunnilingus?

In all honesty, no.

The thing about cunnilingus is that it’s not just about the back and forth flicking sensation of a tongue. It’s actually a combination of many different sensations – the warmth and wetness of a lover’s mouth, the feel of their hot breath on your bits, that moment when they bury their whole face between your legs as if they want to devour you. So much of what makes cunnilingus great just cannot be replicated with a toy.

So no, the Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator does not really feel like oral sex. But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad toy.

But does it feel good?

Yes, it actually does!

Given how choosy my clit is and how much of a power-queen I tend to be, I was a little skeptical to begin with. Would a tiny little clitoral vibrator costing $27 be able to do anything for me?

Well, I am happy to report that it did! The flickering motion feels fantastic and distinctly different from a traditional vibrator. The tongue is structured yet flexible, so it’s ideal for those who love pinpoint stimulation but want something a bit gentler than a hard plastic vibrator.

Flickering tongue vibrator clitoral sex toy

It took a little experimenting to get it right. My clitoral glans is extremely sensitive and direct stimulation is usually too intense to be pleasurable. In the end, I discovered that the most pleasurable way for me to use the Mini Tongue Vibrator was to allow the tongue to flicker against the side of my clit. (The left side is more pleasurable on my body, don’t ask me why.) So if you get one of these, take the time to experiment and try out different placements to see what works for you.

Pro tip: this is a toy that you really need to use lube with. Without it (even when I was quite wet) I found the tongue flicking action uncomfortable. Add a very generous blob of water-based lube to the tongue itself and/or your vulva before you start, and reapply as necessary.

Controls and Interface

The Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator operates on a one-button interface, which sits in the centre of the toy’s base and is easy to press. Hold it for two seconds to turn on, cycle through the patterns with quick presses, then hold it for a further two seconds to turn off.

The Mini Tongue Vibrator has 10 settings total: 3 constant speeds and 7 patterns. I think it’s well-known by now that I don’t generally care for patterns much. This is a “stick it on the highest constant setting and leave it there” toy for me.

Other Important Info

The Mini Tongue Vibrator is certainly not a silent toy, but its volume is well within the range of what I consider acceptable. It makes the same kind of low, consistent buzz as a mid-powered vibrator.

It’s also worth being aware that this toy isn’t really one that you can press hard into your vulva (or you can, but the flickering motion will be severely impeded.) Too much pressure and it will stop flicking or slow down a lot.

The pictures on the website seem to imply you can use this toy internally. Which, obviously, I had to try. The verdict? You technically can, but it probably won’t do anything. The tongue is so short that it can’t get even an inch inside the vagina so, unless you particularly enjoy stimulation right at your entrance, this is an external-only toy.

Final Verdict

I’m going to declare this one “surprisingly good for the price!” No, it doesn’t feel like cunnilingus, but it provides something a bit different to a standard vibrator that still feels really good. It’s also small, portable, and body-safe.

The Sohimi Mini Tongue Vibrator retails for $26.99.

[Toy Review] Hot Octopuss Kurve

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.

Meet Kurve

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.

Hot Octopuss Kurve g-spot vibrator

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.

Hot Octopuss Kurve g-spot and clitoral vibrator

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.

Controls

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.

Hot Octopuss Kurve vibrator for g-spot and clitoral stimulation

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.

Final Verdict

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 Kurve retails for £99.

[Toy Review] We-Vibe Touch X

Earlier this week, I reviewed the Tango X from We-Vibe’s new and updated range. Today, in much the same theme, we’re discussing the We-Vibe Touch X.

However, my perspective on this is slightly different. I’ve never tried or owned the original We-Vibe Touch, so this is a stand-alone review rather than a point of comparison. So just know that going in.

We-Vibe Touch X

The We-Vibe Touch X is a petite, palm-sized clitoral vibrator with a concave side and a tapered tip.

We-Vibe Touch X clitoral vibrator

It measures 4″ in total length and is made of 100% body-safe, smooth silicone. Mine is pink (well, it’s really more pinkish orange) and it is also available in a dark sea-green.

Clitoral vibrator with tapered tip for pinpoint clit stimulation. Vibrator by We-Vibe

The Touch X is fully waterproof and USB rechargeable. It comes with a small white silky storage bag.

User Interface

The We-Vibe Touch X features 8 levels of intensity and 7 patterns. The simple user interface is identical to that of the Tango X: two buttons to change the intensity up and down, and a central button to switch between patterns.

Vibrator buttons on the We-Vibe Touch X powerful external vibrator

The buttons are intuitively placed and relatively easy to press. However, they’re a bit fiddly due to their small size. I would have liked them to be a little bigger.

The Touch X also features a cool press-and-hold button functionality, so you can just hold the up or down button until you get the exact level of intensity you’re after.

Power and Experience

I think the new generation Touch has the same motor as the new Tango X. However, I found that the silicone dampened the vibrations to such an extent that they felt far weaker and more buzzy.

Side view of We-Vibe Touch X new generation clit vibe

Though I can get off with the Touch X, I found it a pretty frustrating experience. As a big lover of We-Vibe products, I kept thinking that this couldn’t be as high as the power goes… but it was.

I do like the tapered shape, but the vibrations themselves were disappointing. I can comfortably say this is by far the most underwhelming We-Vibe product I’ve tried, and I doubt I’ll be reaching for it again.

Verdict

Perhaps it’s because I tried the Tango X first (and ohhhmyyygoddd) but I found the Touch X… just okay.

It’s well-designed and I like the shape. I certainly have no serious complaints. The motor is decent, like all We-Vibe toys. However, I think the silicone just dampened the vibrations a little too much for me. The result was all buzz and not intense enough. I don’t get the deep, satisfying rumble from the Touch X that both Tango models provide.

If you like a still-respectable-but-slightly-gentler vibration, get the Touch. If you need pinpoint stimulation or intense, rumbly power, the Tango X will be your new best friend.

The Touch X retails for £79.99/$79.

[Toy Review] We-Vibe Tango X

One of the world’s most powerful bullet vibrators – not to mention the most popular – has had a makeover! It’s well known that I have long been a big fan of the Tango, We-Vibe’s tiny, unassuming, knock-your-socks-off bullet. So I obviously jumped at the chance to review the brand new We-Vibe Tango X, which was released recently.

We-Vibe Tango X: What’s Changed?

There are a few notable differences between the Tango X and the original We-Vibe Tango. The X is slightly larger, measuring just under 10cm in from base to tip (the original is around 8.5cm.)

We-Vibe Tango X and Tango Original comparison

The new Tango X retains the signature lipstick-style tapered tip of the original, but features a silicone grip around the base. This makes it more comfortable to hold and means that your hand gets vibrated slightly less in use.

The Tango X has had a motor upgrade, taking this already super-powerful bullet vibe up to the next level. Its battery life has had a boost, too – you’ll now get around 2 hours playtime out of a 90 minute charge.

Finally – and this is a big deal – the controls have been upgraded. Instead of the original Tango’s one-button interface in the base of the toy, the Tango X features three buttons, allowing you to cycle between patterns and change speeds up and down with ease. The power buttons also feature a press-and-hold function, allowing you to choose exactly what level of power you want simply by holding the button down.

The Tango X features 7 patterns and 8 intensity levels. It is waterproof, USB rechargeable, and features a travel lock. In the box, you’ll also find the charging cable, a sachet of We-Vibe water-based lube, and a white silky storage bag. My Tango X is navy blue, but it also comes in pink.

In Use

The tiny but mighty Tango has always been a great toy, and this new iteration continues that tradition. It is light (less than 40g!), the new handle makes it ergonomic and comfortable to hold, and small enough to pop in your bag or pocket. The dream travel toy when you need to economise on space!

We-Vibe Tango X clitoral bullet vibrator

And those vibrations… good lord.

This new edition Tango delivers in that department and then some. The vibrations are powerful as fuck. Not only that, they’re also rumbly as fuck. There’s no surface-level, numbing buzz here – it’s all powerful, intense rumbles. Think of it as a deep tissue massage for your bits!

The Tango X is also surprisingly quiet, making it a great choice if discretion is a must for you. The new style buttons are a little smaller than I would ideally like, but intuitively located and easy enough to press.

Like the original Tango, the Tango X’s shape is dreamy. You can use the shaft for broader stimulation, or the tapered end for perfect, precision clit stim. It’s small enough to slide between bodies during penetrative sex, if that’s your thing.

We-Vibe Tango X bullet vibrator

Honestly, I’m a simple creature when it comes to my sex toys. I want intense, rumbly power that is easy to use and gets me off. In that respect, the Tango X delivers and then some.

Verdict

An upgrade in every way! I often roll my eyes when toy companies release “new and improved” versions, adding features that no-one asked for and upping the price. But the X is legitimately an improvement on an already great product.

It has everything you love about the original Tango, only with better controls, a more comfortable grip, and even more power.

Yes, yes, yes! An absolute winner.

The Tango X retails for £79.99/$79.

[Toy Review] Avant Pride P8 Bi Pride Dildo

What’s one of the best ways to show your pride? Through your sex toys, obviously! That’s why I’m thrilled to be bringing you another review from Blush’s Avant Pride range. Today we’re looking at the Pride P8 bi pride dildo, which was sent to me by my friends at The Pleasure Garden.

Avant Pride P8: Facts & Figures

The Avant Pride P8 is a hand-poured dildo in body-safe silicone made by the extraordinary Blush Novelties (they of the best bullet vibe in the world fame.) It’s part of the Avant Pride line of silicone toys in various pride flag colours. The P8 represents the bisexual pride flag: pink at the top, blue at the bottom, and a thinner stripe of purple in the middle.

Avant Pride P8 bisexual pride dildo

Now I want virtually every product imaginable in this colour scheme, partly because I’m bisexual as fuck but also just because it’s a really pretty combo. So obviously I’m enamoured with this dildo before I’ve even taken it out of the box. Interestingly, it looks super shiny in the product pic but the real version is definitely more matte, though no less beautiful.

The Avant Pride P8 came packaged in a clear-fronted box, enabling the buyer to see the exact size and shape for themselves. I do wish sex toy manufacturers would be a little more conscious of the amount of single-use plastic their packaging contains, but at least it’s the recyclable sort.

The Pride P8 offers 6.9″ (17.7cm) in insertable length, and just under 1.5″ (3.8cm) in girth. It is semi-realistic in shape, with a veined shaft leading to a lifelike pronounced head.

Water-based lube is recommended. You can clean your P8 with warm soapy water, or boil-sterilise for a more thorough clean.

Design and Feel

This thing is made of the softest silicone imaginable! Seriously, it feels absolutely lovely in my hand (and everywhere else). Just super silky, squishy and velvety. This toy is made of premium silicone in the truest sense of the word.

The Pride P8’s shaft is straight, but very flexible. It has tonnes of give which allows for comfortable insertion and thrusting, and it flexes with your body so you can angle it in the way that works for you. Honestly, if anything, I might have liked a little LESS flex. I occasionally found it hard to get the amount of G-spot pressure I prefer.

Avant Pride P8 bisexual pride sex toy in bi pride flag colors

With that said, the P8 still feels fantastic in use. The ridges provide gentle internal stimulation and the head is just the right size and shape for G-spotting. I’m likely to reach for this dildo when my body is craving something gentler and when my more rigid toys aren’t cutting it.

People who like girthier toys might find the Pride P8 too narrow for their tastes. Personally, I love a good slimline dick sometimes (too much girth can hurt) and the P8 is an ideal size.

Other Uses

The Avant Pride P8 comes with a super-strong suction cup base. That means you can attach it to any hard, flat surface and play hands-free, if that’s your jam. I don’t really play this way myself, but I like to test things for you folks like the good sex blogger I am. I am extremely impressed with the P8’s suction cup and how well it held. Nothing is dislodging it until you want to!

Bi flag sex toy from Avant Pride dildo range

This toy is also harness-compatible. You’ll need a 1.5″ O-ring to pair it with your favourite strap-on harness.

Finally, the Pride P8 is anal-safe, thanks to its flared base. The slim design might make it particularly good for those who are just exploring anal play and find thicker toys intimidating.

Verdict

The Avant Pride P8 is a simple yet stylish, effective, and versatile dildo. It’s comfortable to use and visually gorgeous. Best of all, it retails for an astonishingly affordable £29.99.

If you’re a bi babe (or ally) of any gender looking to show off your pride in dildo form, you’ve come to the right place.

[Toy Review] Blush Impressions N1

I’m a big fan of Blush products. Not only do they make fun pride themed dildos and an excellent mini wand, they also make my favourite bullet vibe ever. For that reason, I was super excited to receive the Impressions N1 vibrating dildo to review.

First Impressions of the N1

(See what I did there?)

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.

Impressions N1 black silicone G-spot dildo

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.

Impressions N1 dildo by Blush Novelties black silicone vibrator

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!

Impressions N1 black silicone strap-on dildo

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.

Vibrator buttons on the Impressions N1 by Blush Novelties

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

[Toy Review] Je Joue Rabbit Bullet

This is (maybe) (probably) going to be my last toy review of 2020. Given the endless hellscape this year has been, it seemed fitting to end with something I can say good things about! To that end, I’m partnering with my friends at The Pleasure Garden – the UK’s inclusive online sex shop – to bring you a review of the Je Joue Rabbit Bullet vibrator.

Let’s hop to it!

Je Joue Rabbit Bullet: First Impressions

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet is a small bullet vibrator, 5 inches in length and with two fluttering rabbit ears (which make up about 1.5 inches of the total length). It’s also super lightweight.

Je Joue Rabbit Bullet powerful clitoral vibrator

This toy is made of body-safe silicone in an attractive deep purple whivh is seamless and pleasantly tactile. The body of the toy is rigid, while the ears are bendy and flexible.

My Je Joue toy came attractively packaged in a stylish pink and black box. It reminds me of the kind of packaging you’d get high-end makeup or perfume in.

Packaging for the Je Joue Rabbit Bullet clitoral vibrator

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet is completely waterproof and USB rechargeable. Charging is via a hidden port in the base, behind a silicone flap. I got in impressive 90 minutes of use out of a 1-hour charge.

Bonus: all Je Joue toys come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

User Interface

So far, so good. But how did it fare in use?

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet operates on a 3-button interface. The top + button turns the power up, the bottom – button turns the power down, and the central button switches between patterns. To turn the toy on and off, simply hold the + or – button (respectively) down for 2 seconds.

Je Joue Rabbit Bullet rabbit vibrator

The buttons are pretty small, so bear that in mind if fiddly buttons are tricky for you. They’re easy to press and raised so you can feel for them with your fingers without needing to look.

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet offers five different speeds and five patterns. You can only scroll through the patterns one way, but the +/- intensity controls are a BIG advantage.

Two Toys in One

What I like the most about the Je Joue Rabbit Bullet is that it’s sort of two toys in one. What do I mean by that? Well, you can get very different sensations by using the rigid body of the toy versus using the ears.

I like how the ears feel, but they’re definitely a warm-up sensation for me. Thanks to the shape, they dampen the insensity of the vibrations a lot. When I’m ready to orgasm, I also like to be able to push a toy against my vulva to get a decent amount of pressure, which is almost impossible with these soft, flexy ears.

If you find direct clitoral stimulation too intense, you can position the Rabbit Bullet so that the ears sit either site of your clitoral hood, hugging it and providing indirect pleasure. The ears are great for teasing not just clits, but also labia, nipples, penises, and even assholes (exterior only – this toy is not safe to insert anally as it doesn’t have a flared base.)

The main body of the bullet can pack a pretty good punch. The vibrations are powerful and rumbly and, as the toy is small and rigid, they’re not dampened by a thick layer of silicone.

I found the best way to use this toy was to start by using the ears for a warm-up tease, then switch to using the body of the bullet when I was craving more intensity. I really appreciate the ability to ramp it up gradually without needing to switch to a different toy.

For those of you who care about such things, the Je Joue Rabbit Bullet is impressively quiet for the level of power it offers. I’m pleased to report it passes the “can it be heard though a closed door?” test with flying colours (it cannot.)

Final Thoughts

My experience with Je Joue is that they make consistently great toys. The Rabbit Bullet is simple, gimmick-free, and effective. Whether you’re looking for a toy to provide a range of sensations, or just exploring and aren’t sure what you like, it’s a solid buy.

The Je Joue Rabbit Bullet retails for £44.99 from The Pleasure Garden.

[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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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?”
