[Toy Review] Lovehoney Jewelled Metal Butt Plug

Sex In Full Colour in honour of Pride month continues! This month I’ve partnered with Lovehoney to bring you some reviews of some beautiful, bright and colourful pieces to help you bring the rainbow into your bedroom. Let’s take a closer look at the super-sparkly Jewelled Metal Butt Plug.

Bedazzle Your Booty with the Jewelled Metal Butt Plug

The Jewelled Metal Butt Plug from Lovehoney is 3.5″ in total length, of which 3″ is insertable length. It is made of a shiny metal that is silver in colour and reflective (more on the material in a minute.) It weighs in at a hefty 240g and measures 1.4″ in diameter at the widest point.

Sparkly jewelled butt plug from Lovehoney

This jewelled plug is adorned in the base with a sparkly gem that catches the light and shines with different colours. The most prominent colours are green, yellow-gold, and blue. In fact, the effect is similar to the surface of the Irridescent Anal Beads I tried last week. It’s striking and beautiful.

The Jewelled Metal Butt Plug is suitable for use in water.

Tell Me More About this Metal?

The Jewelled Metal Butt Plug from Lovehoney is made from a zinc alloy. This isn’t actually listed on the site (it’s just listed as generic “metal”) but is mentioned in the small print on the box.

Metal butt plug metal sex toy

Is zinc alloy body safe? All my research seems to indicate yes, with caveats. “Zinc alloy” means the zinc is mixed with something else, but we don’t know what. Copper and nickel are the most common zinc alloys so, while copper is unlikely to be problematic for most people, nickel can be an issue if you’re sensitive to it.

Zinc alloy is non-porous and non-toxic unless you’re allergic, but won’t have the long-term durability of stainless steel. So don’t expect it to last you a lifetime. The advantage of zinc over stainless steel is that it’s far, far cheaper.

Zinc alloy plugs are easy to clean. I wouldn’t boil sterilise this toy because I’m not sure how the jewel is held in place or if it can withstand high temperatures. It’s best to clean it using a 10% bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach) and then rinse and dry it thoroughly.

Enough With the Science, How Does it Feel?

The Jewelled Metal Butt Plug slides inside comfortably with plenty of water-based anal lube. The tapered tip and curved, smooth sides make it a breeze to insert, and the narrow neck ensures it stays in place. Unlike some metal plugs I’ve tried, I didn’t feel as though it was about to slip out at any second.

Butt plug base with sparkly jewel

Metal sex toys are particularly fun because they feel super intense. The hard, unyielding material constantly reminds you of its presence every time you move, which can be really sexy. You also really feel the weight of it.

The other fun thing about metal toys is the temperature play potential. The Jewelled Metal Butt Plug retains heat and cold. Put it in the fridge or run it under warm water before use for extra sensations.

Due to the rigidity, I wouldn’t say this is a plug for long-term wear for most people. I found the edges of the base started to be painful against my butt cheeks after a while! For me, this is a “wear for a short time in the bedroom” plug, not a “wear all day” plug.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for an affordable metal plug and not expecting it to last you forever, the Jewelled Metal Butt Plug is a great pick. It retails for an affordable £24.99 and will be safe for most people (again, exercise caution if you have a nickel allergy.)

The sparkly jewel in the base is a fun and striking addition if pretty colours and shiny things make you happy. It’s not the smallest, so probably best for anal players with some experience.

[Toy Review] Fun Factory x Lovehoney Cobra Libre II Masturbator

My lovely partner is very patient and accommodating when it comes to putting various things on his genitals so I can bring honest reviews to you all. He’s also, over the years, got pretty good at identifying quickly whether something will work for him. He was not hopeful about the Cobra Libre II masturbator from Fun Factory and Lovehoney. Even so, we went in with an open mind and gave it a good go.

Was he proven right or wrong? Read on to find out…

Cobra Libre II

The Cobra Libre II is a masturbator for penis owners made by Fun Factory in collaboration with Lovehoney. This version is availavle in an exclusive colourway that is described as “blue” but is really more of a rich sea green.

Cobra Libre II penis masturbator

The Cobra Libre II is a penetratable masturbator with two motors. It is designed to deliver focused stimulation to the head of the penis. The main casing of the toy is ABS plastic, and the sleeve section is stretchy silicone. It is fully waterproof and rechargeable via the included USB cable.

The Good Bits

Well, the materials are body-safe, but that’s really more “bare minimum” than “selling point.”

Cobra Libre II vibrating stroker

The Cobra Libre II’s motors are decently powerful and rumbly (though, as we’ll see in a moment, badly placed.) The battery power is excellent, lasting for well over 2 hours on the top setting, and the Cobra Libre II isn’t excessively loud.

Honestly that’s about all I can think to say is good about it.

The Bad Bits

The Cobra Libre II’s actual opening is surprisingly small. The advertising copy says it’s supposed to accommodate 3.5″, but that’s really only going to be true for folks with penises on the slimmer side. Anyone who is even a little bit girthy is likely to find that their penis simply… doesn’t really fit.

Vibrating masturbator silicone masturbation sleeve

And can we talk about that motor placement!? When I turned the toy on, it felt pretty powerful in my hand. But when I stuck my fingers into the opening, the vibes felt a lot weaker inside. This is pretty poor form for something that is designed to be penetrated.

When my partner tried using it on his penis, he confirmed that the vibrations feel very weak when you’re actually using it. If your hand is getting buzzed more than your penis, it’s a poorly designed sex toy.

Finally, the controls are confusing. You press the red “FUN” button to turn it on and off, which is fine, but the up and down controls to cycle through the patterns are really weird.

Sex toy buttons on Cobra Libre II

The + button cycles through the settings one way, but the – button always takes you back to the same setting (the highest constant vibration speed) and then down through the other two constant speeds, no matter where you start from. So if you accidentally skip the setting you like, it can take a lot of button presses to get back to it.

The Verdict

We’d have been seriously disappointed with this product had we paid the full retail price of £129.99. I asked Mr CK to summarise his overall experience of using it and he said “a waste of time and a perfectly good boner.”

If you like very concentrated and relatively weak vibrations around just the head of your penis, you might find it a winner. But if you prefer pleasure along the whole of the shaft (or need very powerful vibrations) then don’t bother.

[Toy Review] Lovense Ferri

I’ve had mixed experiences with Lovense. I finally got my hands on the Lush, which half the sex-positive internet seems to be obsessed with, and I didn’t get what the fuss was about. Then I tried the Domi and fell in love. So what of the Lovense Ferri, which arrived in my #MasturbationMay shipment from Lovehoney?

Lovense Ferri: Small But Mighty

The first thing that struck me about the Lovense Ferri is just how small it is. It is a miniature knicker vibrator (design to be worn inside your underwear) measuring just 3 inches in length.

Lovense Ferri knicker vibrator

The Ferri comes equipped with a magnetic clip which holds it in place and means you can use it with pretty much any pair of knickers you choose. Its curved shape sits comfortably against your body, and the underside is gently ridged for enhanced clitoral stimulation.

Pro tip: I discovered that the Ferri is also great for sitting on. Like, say, while writing erotica in your desk chair?

Palm of my hand for scale!

The Ferri is waterproof, USB rechargeable, and offers 180 minutes of run time for a two hour charge. It is Bluetooth compatible and can be app controlled, which we’ll get more into in a minute.

Best of all, the Ferri is powerful as hell. The first time I tried it, it got me off in less than five minutes. There’s a lot of motor packed into a small space and I am very, very here for it.

Can You Actually Use It in Public?

I’m gonna go with… maybe.

Lovense Ferri vibrating panties toy

The Lovense Ferri is reasonably quiet for its level of power, but I certainly wouldn’t describe it as silent (or “whisper quiet,” ughhhh.) You could probably get away wih it in a loud or crowded area, but I wouldn’t risk it in a quieter space.

To App or Not to App?

You really do need the app to get the full functionality from the Lovense Ferri. The toy itself features a single-button interface, three pre-programmed speeds, and four patterns. Which is fine, but pretty limited for such an expensive toy. You also can’t really use it for its intended “wearable” purpose without the app, as it doesn’t come with a remote control.

Lovense’s app is genuinely excellent. It’s honestly at least twice as good as any other sex toy app I’ve tested. However, it’s a bit of a privacy issue because it insists on having access to various parts of your phone, so do with that information what you will.

The Lovense Remote app is free to download and compatible with iOS (9.0 and later,) and Android (4.3 and later). You can also get Mac and PC versions, if you prefer.

Pictured: app homepage

Download the app, set up a free account, switch on your toy, and ensure your Bluetooth is connected. Then click the link symbol in the top right corner. My Lovense Ferri connected in a second and maintained a steady connection throughout use.

App Functions

Here are just a few of the fun things you can do with the Lovense Ferri and the Lovense Connect app:

  • Use the “Remote” control panel to change the vibration speed or use the “loop” button to create a repeating pattern.
  • Find pre-installed vibration patterns and your previously saved settings in “My Patterns.”
  • Schedule the toy to start vibrating at a specific time with the “Alarm” function. Fun if you want to wear it to sleep and then get vibed awake, maybe?
  • Make your toy respond to nearby sounds such as music and voices with the “Sound” setting. You could even watch porn and sync the toy with the sounds, if you want!
  • Vibe along to music stored on your device (or linked through a service like Spotify) with the “Music” function.

Pictured: “Sound” function

You can also connect any Lovense toy with cam sites like Chaturbate, MyFreeCams, and Manyvids. If you’re an online sex worker, this can be a fun way to interact with your fans. You can even programme your toy to respond to tips!

I haven’t tried this myself as I’m not a cam model, but reviews are generally very favourable!

Long Distance

Whether you’re in a long distance relationship or currently separated by the pandemic, you can use the “Long Distance” app function to give your partner control of your vibe.

There are two ways to do this. Your partner can download the app, create an account, and give you their username to connect. Alternatively, you can create a “control link” which can last from a few seconds up to an hour, and is single-use only.

Again, connectivity is strong and reliable and the toy is super responsive. Just make sure your internet connection is stable!

Verdict

Yes and yes and yes again! I can’t believe that something so small could be so brilliant, but this is an absolute winner.

The Lovense Ferri retails for £129.99 and, as long as you’re happy using a smartphone app, it’s worth every penny.

[Toy Review] Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Wand Vibrator

It’s May (where has the year gone so far!?) and that means it’s Masturbation Month again! I’m pleased to be working with Lovehoney again to bring you a serious of product reviews this month. First up is a very appropriately spring-themed toy. Meet the Happy Rabbit Wand Vibrator!

Happy Rabbit Wand: Info

Happy Rabbit is Lovehoney’s own-brand range of rabbit vibrators and, based on my experience of the line, they’re damn good. The Happy Rabbit Wand is a little different from its fellow bunnies, though. Instead of following the basic rabbit vibrator dual stimulation design, this is an external vibrator based on the “bunny ears” that you find on most rabbit toys.

Happy Rabbit Wand rabbit vibrator for clitoral stimulation

The Happy Rabbit Wand is a hefty 10.5″ in length. The handle is gently curved and the head looks like, well, a rabbit head with long ears.

The Happy Rabbit Wand is made of body-safe matte black silicone, with a decorative silver ABS plastic band around the handle about half way down. The shaft is fairly rigid (the top half has a tiny bit of flex) and the ears are firm to the touch yet super flexible.

The wand is fully rechargeable via the included cable, and is waterproof and submersible. It also has a travel locking function, if you care about that sort of thing.

First Impressions

I had high hopes for this toy for two reasons. Firstly, because the external “ears” tend to be my favourite thing about rabbit vibes (I’m a clitoral stim girl, okay?) Secondly, because I know from experience that Happy Rabbit products tend to be both well-designed and powerful as fuck.

The Happy Rabbit Wand arrived in Lovehoney’s signature discreet packaging. Inside, the toy was packaged in a box with a picture of the product and some useful information about its functions.

So far, so promising. But how did it fare in use? Let’s find out.

Form & Function

The Happy Rabbit Wand uses a simple two-button interface. The smaller bottom button turns the toy on and off and switches between speeds, and the larger top button switches between patterns.

Vibrator buttons for Happy Rabbit ears vibrator

This toy offers 10 different patterns, each of which you can use on any of three speeds. The patterns button only scrolls through one way, but I can’t say I care all that much because I don’t like patterns anyway. The smaller button allows me to switch the toy on, whack it on the highest constant vibration setting, and leave it there until I’m done. Perfect.

The handle is comfortable to hold and the buttons are intuitively positioned and easy to press. Because they are raised, they’re also easy to feel with your fingers without needing to break your flow to look.

So how about that motor, then?

The Happy Rabbit Wand is, and I do not say this lightly, powerful as fuck on the top setting. Interestingly, there’s a really big jump between the lowest and middle levels, then a smaller jump up to the top level. I guess I’d define them as “very low,” “high,” and “knock your socks off,” respectively.

Best of all, the vibrations are not only powerful but also rumbly and concentrated in the tips of the ears.

Rabbit ears wand vibrator

I found there were two main ways I could use this toy to get off. If I hold it parallel to my body with the head pointing downwards, the ears surround my clit for powerful but indirect stimulation. If I turn it at a 90 degree angle, I can get direct clitoral contact from one or both ears. For me both ways can feel amazing, depending on how sensitive I’m feeling, but you’ll want to experiment to see what works for you.

The Happy Rabbit Wand can get pretty intense and I found that adding lube both to the toy and directly to my body beforehand made things much more enjoyable.

Any downsides?

Honestly… nothing major. The Happy Rabbit Wand is a stellar product.

It is a little loud, so that’s something to bear in mind if discretion is important to you. But you’ll always have a trade-off between level of power and level of noise, so I can’t be too critical.

The only other thing worth noting is that the Happy Rabbit Wand is a little heavy which, again, is to be expected for something of this size and power. I still find it easier to hold for lengthy sessions than a full-sized traditional wand.

Verdict

Yes! The Happy Rabbit Wand is everything I hoped it would be, and more. The shape, power, and flexibility of the ears all combine to make my clit very happy indeed. Top marks, Lovehoney!

The Happy Rabbit Wand retails for £79.99.

[Toy Review] Foxy Touch Wand Massager

It’s always a pleasure to review for a company I’ve never worked with before so, when Foxy Touch reached out to offer me the chance to try their wand massager, I was happy to oblige!

Meet Foxy Touch & the Wand Massager

Foxy Touch is a new woman-founded sex toy company based in London. Their online shop just launched this month, and the wand massager is their first product.

The Foxy Touch Wand Massager is a mini classic wand shaped vibrator. It arrived attractively packaged in a black box with a white sleeve, featuring a picture of and information about the product.

Foxy Touch magic wand vibrator in box

The toy is 7.8″ in total length, and the head is 1.83″ in diameter. The massager is coated in 100% silky soft and body-safe black silicone with a subtle ripple pattern, and decorated with a silver ABS plastic band around the base of the handle.

The Foxy Touch Wand Massager is waterproof (easy to clean!) and USB rechargeable via the included cable. It comes partially charged, so you can get started right away. When it needs charging, a full cycle takes around two hours.

Magic wand vibrator clitoral sex toy from Foxy Touch

This toy retails for a well-priced £49.00 and, when you order, you’ll also receive a free 250ml bottle of Lubido water-based lube and two free erotic fiction ebooks. If you’re in the UK, shipping is free, too.

Controls & Interface

The Foxy Touch Wand Massager is controlled via three buttons positioned on the handle. When I have the toy in my hand, the buttons are in exactly the right place to press them with my thumb.

The quick-start guide explains what all the buttons do, but they couldn’t be simpler. The bottom one switches the toy on and off, the middle one changes the pattern, and the top one changes the speed.

Clitoral vibrator handle with buttons

The buttons are easy to press and the toy is responsive. I would have preferred the ability to cycle both ways through speeds and patterns, though.

Since there are 7 different patterns and 4 different intensity options, you can mix and match for any of an impressive 28 different combinations.

Experience

I’m really, really impressed with this massager! As soon as I switched it on, I knew it was going to be a winner based on the powerful rumbles that were emanating from it.

But before we get to the power, let’s take a step back and look at the ergonomics.

The Foxy Touch Wand Massager is comfortable to hold thanks to the soft silicone and gently tapered design of the handle. It fits comfortably in my hand and, though it’s got a little weight to it, it’s not too heavy to use for an extended period.

You do feel some of the vibrations in the handle. So be aware of that if it’s something that makes a difference to you.

So… that motor, then! Holy crap!

I really wasn’t expecting this toy to be as powerful as it is. It starts from a satisfying rumble and ramps up through four levels to a mega impressive top speed. The vibrations are rumbly enough to penetrate deeply, providing the kind of hard and intense clitoral stimulation that I love.

Most importantly, it gets me off – fast, reliably, and hard. Yes, this is a toy that makes my picky, power-queen clit very very happy.

The Foxy Touch Wand Massager has a somewhat flexible neck, which is useful for angling it to get precisely the positioning you’re after. But, thanks to the firmness of the head, you can still get plenty of pressure if that’s what you enjoy.

Noise-wise, it’s fine. Not the most discreet in the world but perfectly acceptable when weighted against the level of power.

The Verdict

As I mentioned, this is Foxy Touch’s first offering. I am seriously super impressed – a body-safe, ergonomic and powerful vibe on the first try? I can’t wait to see what they come out with next.

Heartily recommended if you’re looking for a classic external vibe that does exactly what it says on the tin with power and finesse.

[Toy Review] Lovehoney Love Not War Meile

Sustainability is a major problem within many industries, and the sex toy industry is no exception. While there are ways to enjoy sex toys more sustainably – buying from ethical companies, using rechargeable rather than battery-powered products, choosing silicone over plastic, buying toys made to last rather than cheap ones that will die after a year – there are relatively few toys being made specifically with eco-friendliness in mind. That’s why I was excited to receive the Meile vibrator from Lovehoney’s new line in collaboration with Love Not War.

Love Not War clitoral vibrator

How is Love Not War Different?

Love Not War is a new innovative line of sustainable and eco-friendly vibrators. Their eco credentials come in several forms:

The materials: the base is made from recycled aluminium, which is one of the most sustainable metals (98% recycled worldwide.) The main part of the toy is made from silicone, which is more readily recyclable than plastic and plastic-derived materials. Even the storage bag that comes with your vibe is made from sustainbable bamboo fabric. Love Not War vibes use very small amounts of plastic, and the company recycles that plastic within the factory.

Interchangeable heads: you only need to buy one Love Not War electronics unit. You can then use it with any of the four interchangeable heads. This is obviously much more environmentally friendly than buying four identical electronics units to enjoy the different permutations of this toy. Unfortunately the heads don’t seem to be available separately at Lovehoney right now, but I’m going to follow this up to find out when they should be available.

The packaging: Your Love Not War vibe comes in recyclable cardboard packaging with a sugar cane tray and no single-use plastic.

The Love Not War Meile

Lovehoney Love Not War Meile vibrator for clit stimulation

I received the Love Not War vibe with the Meile head. This attachment features a ball-shaped tip, which I chose on account of it being a relatively unusual vibrator design. If you’re familiar with the Zumio, it’s similar in shape only broader. The attachment has a rigid shaft and the ball is relatively firm yet slightly squishy.

Vibrator storage bag for sex toy

The whole toy (base + attachment) is 16cm (6.2″) in length. It is fully waterproof and features a travel lock.

To charge your Love Not War vibe, unscrew the base and plug it into a USB plug using the included cable. You’ll get around 1 hour of use on top speed from a 2 hour charge.

Fun fact: all the Love Not War vibe names come from words for “love” in various languages. Liebe is German, Amore is Italian, Meile is Lithuanian, and Laska is Czech.

In Use

I knew I was going to love the Love Not War Meile as soon as I handled it and switched it on. The soft silicone, the shape of the head, and the powerful vibrations all add up to a winner.

Love Not War Meile vibrator eco friendly sex toy

If you enjoy pinpoint clitoral stimulation, you’ll love the Meile. The ball shaped tip means you can get precise stimulation exactly where you want it. Unusually, I found that the head of this toy was soft enough to use directly on my clit. When I use more rigid toys, I have to use them through the clitoral hood or they’re too intense and end up being more uncomfortable than pleasurable.

If you prefer internal vibrations, the Love Not War vibe with the Meile attachment is long enough to reach the G-spot on many bodies.

Lovehoney insignia heart stamp

The vibrations are impressive, too. They’re strong, not too buzzy, and concentrated in the right place – the tip of the toy. The top setting left me in a puddle of post-orgasmic bliss very quickly!

The Love Not War vibe is reasonably quiet (I wish marketing copy would stop describing things as “whisper quiet,” though. They never are.) It passes the “under a duvet, door closed” test in that I can’t hear it from outside my bedroom.

If I have one complaint, it’s the one button interface. The Love Not War vibe has four constant speeds and six patterns. Ten settings is a lot to scroll through with a single button to get back to the one you like!

As an added bonus, I also think these toys are really pretty. The base is a lovely muted rose gold and stamped with the Lovehoney and Love Not War insignias, while the attachments are a dark steely grey. The overall aesthetic is elegent and stylish. Function is far more important than form, of course. But I do love toys that do the job and look great while they’re doing it.

Final Verdict

Lovehoney and Love Not War have knocked it out of the park with this collaboration. The line actually addresses ecological concerns in the adult industry in a way that is more than just lip-service, and they’re gorgeous and effective, too.

Grab yourself a Love Not War vibe with your choice of head from Lovehoney for £69.99 (except for the large Liebe, which retails for £79.99.) Don’t forget to use code coffkink10 at checkout for an additional 10% off!

Enjoy your eco-conscious orgasms.

[Toy Review] Tracy’s Dog OG Pro2

Tracy’s Dog’s[1] original clitoral stimulator went viral a couple of years back due to a hilariously lengthy and detailed Amazon review. I did not try that toy, so I cannot speak to its quality. However, I was pleased when Tracy’s Dog reached out to me to review their newest product, the OG Pro2, which just launched.

It looks like this:

Tracys Dog OG Pro2 dual stimulation sex toy

Let’s dive in and find out what I thought, shall we?

Tracy’s Dog OG Pro2

The OG Pro2 by Tracy’s Dog is a remote controlled, dual stimulation sex toy for people with vulvas, designed to target the clit and the G-spot at the same time.

The interior arm is a classic G-spot vibrator, while the external arm provides clitoral stimulation via suction technology. Its shape reminds me of wearable toys like the We-Vibe Chorus, only with a much larger internal shaft.

Dual stimulation vibrator from Tracys Dog

The OG Pro2 is made of soft and body-safe silicone. The company refers to the colour as “Tiffany blue” but it’s really more of a minty turquoise green. It arrived in discreet packaging as promised. Inside, the toy was attractively packaged in a black branded box. In the box you’ll also find a charging cable, instruction leaflet, warranty card, some fun stickers, and a purple satiny storage bag.

OG Pro2 clitoral vibrator G-spot vibrator suction toy

The toy itself is rechargeable via the included USB cable, but the remote control requires a CR2032 battery (included.) The OG Pro2 is fully waterproof, which makes it easy to clean as well as bath/shower friendly. I recently tried a clitoral suction toy in the bath for the first time, and the experience was quite different to anything I’ve felt before – worth a try if you’re curious.

Controls and Interface

The OG Pro2 features a two-button interface on the toy and also comes with a two-button remote control. They work in broadly the same way: one button controls the internal vibrations, the other controls the clitoral sucker.

Clitoral suction toy from OG Pro2

As I often say, I would have liked two-way controls. It’s frustrating having to scroll through all the settings to get back to the one you like. The buttons are responsive, easy to press, and intuitively located on the back of the external arm of the toy.

Once I’d inserted the OG Pro2, I found it much easier to use the remote control rather than the buttons on the toy itself. The remote control is small and super light.

In Use

I’ll admit that I was a little skeptical about this toy. Dual stimulation toys are very hit and miss for me generally. So how did the Tracy’s Dog OG Pro2 fare in use?

Tracys Dog OG Pro2 dual sex toy

Full disclosure: I don’t like internal vibrations. So while the internal arm’s motor was impressively powerful (if a little buzzier than I prefer,) I kept it switched off. The vibrating arm has 3 constant speeds and 7 vibrating patterns.

Though internal vibrations are not really for me, I still got a lot of pleasure out of the OG Pro2’s internal arm. The gently curved shape is excellent, and the ridged underside feels amazing pressed against my G-spot.

Pro tip: if you’ve used this sort of insertable dual stim toy before, you might find that this one’s insertable section is larger than you’re used to. Take it slowly and use plenty of water-based, body-safe lube.

The clitoral suction stimulator offers an impressive 10 different escalating speeds. Personally, the lower 5 speeds are too gentle to do much for me. But if you prefer gentler stimulation or are looking for a warm-up toy, they might suit you just fine. I like to start with speed 6 or 7, and then slowly ramp up and finish at 9 or 10 when I’m ready to orgasm.

For me, this toy has one major thing to recommend it: I can actually use it hands-free! I find clitoral suction stimulators more pleasurable when I keep my legs close together, and that position coupled with the shape of the OG Pro2’s internal arm means I can use the toy without having to hold it in place. Awesome! This is particularly welcome when coupled with the remote control.

Something to be aware of: the clitoral stimulator nozzle is pretty small. This wasn’t a problem for me, because my clit is on the smaller size. But if you have a larger clit this is something you’ll want to be aware of.

The Verdict

This toy was a really pleasant surprise! When I opened it up, I wasn’t sure what to expect because my body is pretty picky about dual stimulation toys. But the good shape, flexible design, and quality clitoral stimulator make it a worthy addition to my toy collection.

The Tracy’s Dog OG Pro2 retails for $59.99 but at the time of writing is on sale at $50.99.

[1] Yeah I’m baffled by this company name, too. Check out their Youtube channel. It is delightfully bizarre.

[Toy Review] Lovehoney x ROMP Switch Suction Clitoral Stimulator

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

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

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

Get Switch-ed On

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

Lovehoney Womanizer ROMP Switch sex toy packaging

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

ROMP Switch clitoral suction toy

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

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

Use and Experience

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

Nozzle of clitoral suction vibrator

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
