[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.

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.

Image credit: Sohimi

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.

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.

[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] 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
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] Lovehoney Glow-in-the-Dark Dildo

Here we are, already half way through the #12DaysofLovehoney project! It’s been super fun bringing a mixed bag of reviews to you lovely folks over the last few days, and I’m excited for the next six. I’m also in the process of setting up reviews for 2021, which is already looking super exciting. Subscribe to my newsletter to make sure you don’t miss any updates!

Let’s dive into today’s review. Check out the rest of the series, too!

A glow-in-the-dark dildo? Why!?

Why not, that’s why.

That’s right – today, we’re looking at Lovehoney’s new glow-in-the-dark dildo! (Described in the product copy as a “dazzling disco stick,” which I find hilariously charming.)

It’s a clear silicone dildo with strip of blue glow-in-the-dark material inside (it also comes in pink, if that’s more your colour.) It is semi-realistic in design, with a veined shaft, prominent head that mimics a circumcised bio cock, and balls at the base. The total length is 7.5″, the insertable length is 5.5″, and the shaft is 1.5″ in diameter.

It is, unusually, made with a translucent silicone. At first glance, it looks a bit like some of the jelly toys I’ve seen over the years, so I wanted to be sure it was really silicone. Don’t worry – it definitely is. That means the glow-in-the-dark dildo is completely body-safe and you can use it with confidence.

The Lovehoney glow-in-the-dark dildo

The glow-in-the-dark dildo features a suction cup, so you can stick it to the wall/floor/window/shower for hands-free play. The suction cup is impressively strong and stays put very well. This dildo will also fit nicely in many strap-on harnesses (you’ll need a 1.5″ O-ring.) Thanks to the balls and suction cup base, it’s even safe for anal play. (Never use anything anally that doesn’t have a large or flared base!)

Does it actually glow?

Yep!

Don’t ask me how, because I do not understand the science behind glow-in-the-dark things. But yes, it does, and it’s impressively bright. The instructions say to keep the dildo in the light for a short while before taking it into a dark space. I sat it next to my daylight lamp for 15 minutes, before taking it into my darkened bedroom to see the glow.

Here’s the result:

The Lovehoney glow-in-the-dark dildo
It is very difficult to get a good picture of something in the dark!

How does it feel?

The glowing is a fun touch and makes this toy a bit different from all the millions of other great silicone dildos out there. But does it actually do its job?

Fortunately, the glow-in-the-dark dildo isn’t all gimmick and no substance. It is also perfectly functional basic dildo that’s fun and pleasurable to use. The shaft is very flexible, making it easy to angle it just right to hit your preferred internal spots. It’s soft, squishy, and not too girthy. If I’m just after some penetration to accompany clitoral stimulation or warm me up for p-in-v sex, it’s perfect.

The Lovehoney glow-in-the-dark dildo

Some reviewers have reported finding the veins pleasurable, but the inside of my vagina isn’t really sensitive enough to notice them. What does feel great is the pronounced, realistic head, which is ideal for targeting the G-spot.

Bonus: the balls make a convenient handle for thrusting purposes!

One thing to be aware of is that the silicone is very matte in texture and therefore feels quite “grabby”. You’ll want to use plenty of lube for comfortable play. A gentle water-based lube is ideal with silicone toys.

So do I recommend the glow-in-the-dark dildo?

This is a decent quality silicone dildo at a great price! It retails for £29.99 at Lovehoney. If you’re after a functional all-rounder, the glow-in-the-dark dildo is a great pick. Even better if you like a little fun and whimsy your toys!

A cute way to bring some glow to your bedroom, or a fun stocking stuffer for a lover.

[Toy Review] Lovehoney Desire Bullet Vibrator

It’s the second day of #12DaysofLovehoney, a special festive review project! Check out the whole series and please let me know if there are any particular products you’d love me to review in the future. Today’s review is the Desire Bullet Vibrator, from Lovehoney’s Desire collection.

Desire Bullet Vibrator

The Desire Luxury Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator (to give it its full title) is a classic bullet vibe from Lovehoney’s Desire range of luxurious, high-end toys. It’s the traditional bullet shape, tapering to a soft point at the tip:

The Desire Bullet is 3 inches in length and fully waterproof. It is rechargeable via the included magnetic USB cable, and I got about an hour of play out of a full (2 hour) charge. That was on full power, so if you’re playing at a lower intensity it may last a bit longer.

It came attractively packaged in a Desire black and purple branded box. Also included was a cute little faux-leather storage pouch. This is ideal for travel and storage, and also features a hole for the cable so you can charge your toy discreetly.

The Desire Bullet is rigid, and coated in smooth, body-safe silicone. Like the rest of the toys for vulvas in the range, it’s a gorgeous deep purple colour and stamped with the Lovehoney heart insignia.

Simple one-button interface

The Desire Bullet operates via a single button situatied on the base of the toy. Just press once to switch it on, press repeatedly to cycle through the speeds and patterns, and hold it down for two seconds to switch the toy off.

The button is raised, making it easy to feel and press without needing to look, and easy to press. I do wish it came with increase/decrease controls. This isn’t a cheap toy, and only being able to scroll through settings in one direction is a downside.

Power and patterns

The Desire Bullet has three constant speeds and a slightly bonkers seventeen patterns (some of them are very similar to each other – there are only so many variations on bzzz bzzz BZZZZZ in existence!)

The plus side is that this makes it pretty versatile for a bullet, which you’d expect when paying almost £50 for a toy. The downside is that it takes forever to scroll through them all (that damn one button interface again!)

I’m much more into constant vibrations rather than patterns. I played around with them a bit, but found them overwhelmingly unsatisfying. That’s not so much a criticism of the toy as an indictment of just how little I like patterns.

The constant vibration speeds are pretty good. It starts out at a low rumble, good for warm-up. The vibrations do get a little more buzzy as you increase the power, so be aware of that if deep rumbles are more your speed. I still found the top setting enjoyable to use, and it didn’t numb me out like extremely buzzy vibes tend to do!

How does it feel?

I do like this toy. It takes a very simple concept – the classic bullet vibe – and does it really well. You can lay it flat against your vulva for a broader sensation, or use the tip for pinpoint clitoral stimulation.

The silicone is silky soft and feels lovely, and is a change from the hard plastic of my usual go-to bullet. The Desire Bullet is also super light, making it a good option if heavy or bulky toys are challenging for you. It’s also pretty quiet, considering the level of power on offer.

I can get off reliably and consistently with the Desire Bullet. I’ll definitely reach for it again.

By the way: water-based lube makes everything better!

So do I recommend it?

If you’re looking for a reliable and versatile basic, look no further. I’ve had mixed experiences with the Desire range – they’re beautifully designed, but haven’t always been powerful enough for me.

A good quality and body-safe bullet vibe is a great addition to any toybag. Whether you’re building a collection, buying your first toy, or treating a lover for the holidays, they’re a pretty safe bet that work well for lots of different bodies. They’re also small, ideal for travel, and easy on the hands and wrists, but still pack a punch stimulation-wise.

Grab your Desire Bullet from Lovehoney for £49.99.

[Toy Review] Blowmotion Pulse Vibration Masturbator

Happy December, gang! Today is the first day of a very special project I’m working on with my friends at Lovehoney. It’s called the #12DaysofLovehoney and every day from today until December 11th, I’ll be bringing you a new product review. On the 12th, there will be an opportunity to win an exciting prize!

First up is the Blowmotion Pulse Vibration, a masturbator for people with penises. Being the good sport he is, my stunt cock Mr CK had ample input into this review. Let’s get started.

What is the Blowmotion Pulse Vibration?

Blowmotion is a line of six toys for penis owners exclusively available at Lovehoney. I received the Blowmotion Pulse Vibration masturbator, which looks like this:

The Blowmotion Pulse Vibration masturbator

It is 6 inches long in total, but the canal (the bit where the penis goes) is only about two inches deep. Powered by electro-magnetic technology, it is designed to deliver stimulation to the head of the penis (the most sensitive part for a lot of people).

The Blowmotion arrived in a sleek black and green box – the packaging wouldn’t be out of place housing a fancy gadget or a high-end aftershave. The toy is also black with green accents. It’s smart and masculine without being aggressively MANLY.

The Blowmotion is USB rechargeable and I got about 40 minutes of play out of a full charge. Passable, but not great. It is made of smooth and body-safe silicone, which is a very welcome change from penis toys made from gross jelly materials and porous TPE! The silicone on one side of the canal is stretchy, allowing for comfortable insertion. Just remember to use plenty of water-based lube.

Settings and controls

The Blowmotion Pulse Vibration features two forms of stimulation: standard vibrations, and the thrusting motion that gave it its name. Settings are controlled via 3 buttons: the middle button switches the toy on and off, the top one controls the thrusting, and the bottom one controls the vibrations.

There are 7 thrusting modes (3 speeds and 4 patterns) and 14 vibration modes (5 speeds and 9 patterns). Since you can control them separately, you can use them in any combination you wish, including leaving either one switched off entirely. The versatility is impressive and makes the toy more likely to be friendly to a range of bodies.

The buttons are a little small and fiddly. I also found that the setting didn’t always change reliably – sometimes I had to press a button twice. And having to scroll through 7 or 14 settings if you accidentally miss the one you like? Yeah, that’s annoying.

How did it feel?

Though we were initially impressed with the look and luxurious feel of the Blowmotion, we found it disappointing in practice. Since the thrusting motion is concentrated in the base of the toy, Mr CK reported that he could hardly feel it. I stuck my fingers in it and switched it on to get an idea of the sensation, and was similarly underwhelmed. The vibrations are okay, but pretty buzzy and nothing to write home about, power-wise.

This toy is also not ideal if you like a lot of attention paid to your shaft as opposed to just the head of your penis. Since it’s only 2 inches deep, it’s really a head-only toy. If you prefer all stimulation focused there, you might find the Blowmotion Pulse Vibration ideal. Otherwise, it probably won’t do much for you.

It’s also worth noting that if you’re above average in the girth department, the Blowmotion might be uncomfortable for you to use. The canal is fairly narrow and that little bit of stretch will only get you so far.

Mr CK wasn’t able to get anywhere close to orgasm with it, and we’re unlikely to use it again.

Final thoughts

While we loved the idea of the Blowmotion, it just doesn’t really deliver in practice. In my opinion, it’s not worth the £74.99 pricetag. You’ll be better off buying a wand and a masturbator attachment.
