Last year, I was contacted by Hismith about testing a full-size sex machine. And I love it, but it’s definitely bulky and heavy. I live in a very confined space at this point and setting up and using the Hismith machine is more trouble than it’s worth. For the last few months, the only time we break it out is when we get the opportunity to get to a hotel room. I wanted something that was more portable and didn’t take up half my floor space. The Sohimi Remote Controlled Sex Machine checks those boxes.

What is a Remote Controlled Sex Machine?

This particular model reminds me more of a thrusting vibrator than a sex machine. The biggest difference is, the dildo moves using the mechanism inside the larger part of the machine, not independently. It’s telescoping, moving up and down only. The base, which is used to power the dildo, has an attachable suction cup, so you can stick it pretty much anywhere. I tested it on my wall and floor and it stayed where I put it for the length of time I needed it.

Specs

Automatic Telescopic and 10 Vibration Modes: The telescopic distance is about 4 cm, with three thrusting speeds, and 6 telescopic modes. It also has 10 vibration modes which vibrate the dildo.

Wireless Remote Control: Wireless remote control, with a sensing distance of about four meters.

Suction Cup: Holds about 2 kg of weight and sticks most anywhere. It can be rotated up to 150°.

Portable & Charging: Detachable design, the dildo can be separated from the base. Convenient to carry and easy to clean. Charge for about 2-3 hours, and can be used for about 2 hours.

Pros

I like that it comes with it’s own dildo, so you don’t have to purchase something extra in order to use the toy. The powerful suction cup hasn’t let me down so far, and I haven’t been gentle with it. The 150 degree rotation allowed by the suction base is helpful to get things exactly where you need it for a good time. The price point is great for a portable sex machine, only $69.99, whereas the full size machine I own retails for about $650. It’s easy to clean since the dildo is detachable. It’s coated in silicone and can easily be washed with soap and warm water. Using the remote is easy and makes having fun a lot smoother, as you can hold the remote in your hand and dial things up or down to your preferences. Or, you can hand over control to a partner.

Cons

Even though it comes with a dildo, which is nice, it’s the only one you can use with this machine. It has a special connector, so you can’t just swap out dildos when you want. The dildo itself is not malleable at all. I’m not sure what the core is made of (it’s definitely not all silicone). The interior is hard and could be painful if you’re not careful the position you use it in. Not so horrible, but taking almost 3 hours to charge for only 2 hours of play is a bit much. I found that you don’t really get 2 hours either, the machine will start to slow down around the 1 hour mark.

Who Should Own This Sex Machine?

I wanted to be able to say using this on cam for cam girls or other fansite models was ideal, and it can be. However, unlike the machines made specifically to tie into your chat program, your customers won’t be able to control this machine. It could still be used as something different to entice new customers into your chat room or live shows. Anyone who enjoys thrusting while masturbating would benefit from this toy. It’s not really suited to M/F coupled play.

For the price, it’s a nice, powerful toy, as long as you understand the limitations. It would be great for someone who’s never owned one, who doesn’t mind one size dildo, and plans to use it for less than an hour at a time.

A gentle intimate cleanser for your naughty bits

Your vagina is designed to clean itself, using natural secretions to help. The vagina is the inner part of your sex organs, though is misunderstood to be the outer portion, which is actually your vulva. The vulva does need to be cleaned, but not with perfumed soaps, wipes, or sprays.

Bacteria called lactobacilli help keep the vagina’s pH balance at its normal low level (less than pH 4.5), which also prevents the growth of other organisms. If the pH of the vagina increases (it gets less acidic), the quality or amount of lactobacilli can fall and other bacteria can multiply. This can result in infections such as bacterial vaginosis or thrush, which can cause symptoms including itching, irritation and abnormal discharge.

It’s a good idea to avoid perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics as these can affect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina and cause irritation. Use plain, unperfumed soaps to wash the area around the vagina (the vulva) gently every day. The vagina will clean itself inside your body with natural vaginal secretions (discharge).

Vush’s It’s All Good Intimate Cleanser is alcohol free, fragrance free, Vegan/Cruelty free, and pH matching. It’s gentle enough to be used on all your intimate bits and pits, keeping your pH where it belongs while providing cleansing. It’s hypoallergenic and moisturizes and cleanses your most intimate parts.

This intimate cleanser does not contain fragrances, but I will note, it does contain some menthol. If you’re extremely sensitive, this may cause some tingling when using. As it’s a foaming wash, one pump will do you. Gently wash your vulva, rinse with warm water, and viola!

Containing no fragrance doesn’t mean it has zero scent. It smells medicinal, but not in a bad way. If you’ve ever used a cleanser like Hibiclens, it’s a similar smell but a lot weaker. As for how it feels, it’s nice and foamy, and leaves your skin feeling moisturized. It gives you a fresh, clean feeling without harming your delicate pH balance.

When a new toy enters the market, I’m often a bit leery. I mean, how many different designs can people come up with that will actually work? But I’m also a curious cat, so when I see something totally different than any toy I’ve used before, I really want to try it out. The Snail, by Freedom Novelties, caught my attention immediately. I’ve never seen another toy out there anything like it and I had to try one. I’ll admit, partly because I wasn’t even sure exactly HOW you would use it!

What is a Snail?

Well, it looks exactly as you would expect based on the name (but not slimy, I promise). It’s shaped like, well, a snail. At first, I wasn’t 100 percent sure how to work this thing, but it comes with an instruction manual, and Betty’s Toy Box, who provided this item in exchange for an honest review, also has instructions and video on their site.I may have spent more than a few minutes trying to figure out how I was going to get this thing inside my body. But once I stopped being stubborn and actually read the instructions, it was a simple thing. For reference, the left side (shown in the photo) is what you insert. If that was blatantly obvious to you, please keep that to yourself. 🙂
One of the coolest features of the Snail is the ball that rests against your clitoris STAYS where you want it. This toy has been compared to a rabbit vibrator, in the way that it gives you internal and external stimulation simultaneously, but I can tell you from years of experience, rabbit vibes don’t always stay where you put them. The clitoral stimulation from a rabbit is very targeted, and the ‘ears’ tend to slip off or just flat out move when you’re using the vibrator to thrust. Personally, I find the ears to be a little too targeting, so when I saw the design of the Snail, I was excited to see if the larger surface area of the ball would give a different kind of sensation.


Trust me, it does.


The Snail has two motors, one in each ball. They operate independent of one another, so if you like more vibration internally (or externally) you can set each motor to a different speed and pattern. Both motors have 5 speeds and 5 vibration patterns, which give over 600 combinations for you to choose from. I’m a simple gal and I doubt I’ll ever go through all those combinations, but they’re nice to have. Controlling the Snail is simple. The buttons are on the lower ball, which also doubles as a hand hold, and are raised enough to be easy to find while you’re using the toy.
So, what are the vibrations like? One of my go-to toys for clitoral stimulation is my Magic Wand. It’s rumbly vibrations just can’t be beat, for me, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the Snail boasts similar power. Couple that with the insertion capability of a good dildo, and you just can’t go wrong.


What I love is that it’s all one toy. I’m not the most coordinated person on the planet. Sure, I have two hands, but trying to please myself with a dildo for insertion and a wand for clitoral stimulation does nothing but frustrate me. And now, I don’t have to worry about it. The Snail provides both in one!


After charging for the recommended 2 hours, I decided it was time to give this toy a try. It’s made from silicone, so water based lube is your best bet. I took a few minutes to play with the settings and make sure I knew where the buttons were, then sat back to enjoy the ride.


Then my mother in law called to let me know she was on her way to bring dinner. Nothing like coitus interuptus! I guess I should be thankful she called, otherwise, she would have really interrupted my fun when she knocked on the door.


Two hours later, I was finally alone again and ready to get started. The mood had dissipated somewhat, mothers in law tend to do that, so I turned on some relaxing music, lit a candle, and got ready, again.
Let me say, it was worth the wait. In all my years of using sexual wellness items, I’ve never used a toy that performed so well. Even with vigorous thrusting, the ball for clitoral stimulation never stopped providing vibration nor did it slip and slide away from its targeted spot. Since it’s pretty wide, it covered every place I could imagine wanting vibration with ease.


For those with a very sensitive clit, be aware, even the lowest setting on this portion of the vibrator is fairly strong. I would say it’s similar to the low setting on a Magic Wand. I found that starting off with the lowest setting on that ball and moving up to the third worked well for me.

Pros and Cons of The Snail

Nothing is perfect, but this toy comes pretty close. I love the dual stimulation for blended orgasms, and have definitely squirted a few times while using it. Although the clitoral stimulation ball moves, unfurling as you thrust the toy, there isn’t any ‘give’ to the rest of the toy. The insertable portion is rigid. This isn’t a con for me, but I can see where it may be uncomfortable for some bodies. Cleaning the toy is a bit of a trick, you need to be sure you’re getting into the curves and bends of the toy and ultimately, rinse all your cleaner away as well. I highly recommend drying this toy when you’ve finished cleaning it, instead of leaving it to dry. There are some nooks and crannies I would be fearful wouldn’t dry completely on their own.

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, this has quickly become my favorite toy. I love that I can get myself off quickly with it if I choose, or take the time to really romance myself. It works beautifully for me in both regards and has earned its place in my nightstand. That’s a big thing for me, considering lack of space.
