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.

For all your beginner soft bondage needs, the Naughty Gift Box has you covered.

Photo by Ella Paradis

Soft bondage refers to a form of BDSM where hard impact or other extreme play isn’t part of your game. Even those in traditionally vanilla relationships engage in soft bondage such as light spanking, using handcuffs or ties, and more. If you’ve been thinking of dipping your toes into bondage and aren’t sure where to start when it comes to items, the naughty gift box from Better Love is a great place to begin.

What’s in the Naughty Gift Box?

The naughty gift box itself is really nice and sturdy, and would be perfect to store your items in when you’re finished playing. But boxes aren’t why you’re here. Each box is carefully curated by the folks at Better Love, so depending on availability, you may get different items. My box came with the following:

  • Mini faux leather flogger
  • Massage candle
  • Cock ring
  • Fun Factory booty plug, small
  • Black out blindfold
  • Thin restraint cuffs
  • Feather tickler
  • Bondage rope (very small amount)
  • Instruction guide and BDSM checklist

Pros and Cons

My personal favorite item featured in the naughty gift box is the massage candle. It smells amazing and feels even better. So far, we’ve used it at least 4-5 times and still have some left. You can drip it directly onto the skin for sensory play or pour it into your hands to give a massage. It gets to the perfect temperature, not too hot at all for direct drips.

The cock ring is just a standard ring, nothing fancy, made of silicone. My husband is of a bit over average girth and it fits him with ease as it does have some stretch to it.

I was mildly disappointed in the flogger. It appears to be cheaply made and you really can’t get a good swat with it. It does work well for teasing, such as dragging the ends across different parts of your partner’s body for sensory play, but honestly, that’s about all it’s good for.

The feather tickler is exactly what you think it is and does its job. It isn’t anything special but it hasn’t fallen apart with use so that’s impressive in and of itself.

I’m a big fan of butt plugs, as is my husband, and the Fun Factory small booty plug is perfect for anyone just getting started with anal play. Be aware, it is quite small, so if you’re more advanced in your booty play, it probably isn’t going to do much for you.

Being tied up can be a lot of fun, especially if you couple it with being blindfolded. The included blindfold is essentially a sleep mask, so it should fit most anyone and do what you need it to. The leather cuffs are quite thin and really wouldn’t hold someone determined to be free, but they work just perfectly to ‘secure’ your submissive partner during play, when the illusion of bondage is important. They’re comfortable and they look really pretty.

Honestly, the bondage rope included is rather useless unless all you want to do is secure your partner’s hands. There isn’t much of it and it isn’t sturdy at all. Again, it’s all about the illusion and if you’re not engaging in a heavy rope scene, it would do the job just fine.

Another favorite part of mine is the BDSM checklist. There are two parts, one for each of you, and it’s a simple check box design with the ability to fill in the blank for items not listed. What I like about it is the fact that it causes you and your partner to have a conversation about what you are and are not willing to try or are interested in researching further. Anything that promotes communication is excellent in my book.

Who should purchase this?

Anyone who is new to bondage or BDSM and would like a little bit of everything to get them started. Most of BDSM is in your mind, so you don’t absolutely need items to get started, but if you want the tools, this naughty gift box is a good place to start. Advanced practitioners will honestly find this set to be lacking, so I wouldn’t recommend for anyone who is established. The naughty box is a fun way to gift your partner and give you ideas for things to do on date night or a special event.

He isn’t worth it, but this hand-held vibrating massager definitely is.

The Better Love Collection by Ella Paradis features a multitude of toys sure to meet your needs. When they recently reached out and asked if I would mind reviewing some of their toys, one of the first items that caught my attention was the “Don’t Text Your Ex” vibrating massager. It’s essentially a bullet vibrator, but cute and heart shaped instead of the traditional “bullet” design. I haven’t owned a bullet in years and wanted something I could hold in the palm of my hand for those moments when your fingers just aren’t doing it, but you don’t want to break out a vibrator.

This vibrating massager is made from body safe silicone, has an easy one button design, and is splash proof. I wouldn’t recommend submerging in water for extended periods of time, but it is fine to use in the shower. The run time on a full charge is about an hour.

How Well Does This Vibrating Massager Work?

After charging and washing, I decided there was no time like the present to check this new toy out. To turn it on, long press the power button and the light will come on. Short press the button to cycle through all the vibration patterns and intensity. There are 10 in all, ranging from pretty mild and buzzy to an intense buzz. It starts off on the lowest setting, then cycles through two other single vibration modes, followed by patterns.

I am not fond of patterned vibrations when it comes to massaging my clitoris. It’s distracting to me and just frustrates me more than turning me on. I figured out quickly I like the second single vibration mode, which I guess you could call the middle ground. The lowest vibration setting is more irritating to me than anything. It’s just not strong enough to get things going, but would be excellent for someone who has a more sensitive clit than I do.

The end of this vibrating massager is ABS plastic, so I don’t recommend using the tip for play. I keep that part in my hand and use the heart end for pleasure.

Pros and Cons

As much as I enjoy this toy and get almost daily use from it, I’ve found the power button is awkward. Because of the way you hold the toy, when you’re really getting into the vibrations, you can accidentally shut the toy off. It’s caused me to lose an orgasm more than once. I’ve tried holding the toy with the power button facing my palm, which helps a bit, but shut off still happens sometimes. Facing the power button out is almost a guarantee you’ll shut the power off, so inward it is!

Other than the power button issue, I can’t find anything wrong with this powerful little toy. Like I said, I use it almost daily, so that says something. It’s small enough to carry in your purse if you want and doesn’t take too long to charge. Since I use it so often, I’ve gotten in the habit of putting it on the charger every three days or so. Worse than accidentally pressing the power button would be to have it die in the middle of masturbating!

If you’ve been searching for a powerful vibrating massager, you can get yours from Ella Paradis today. It’s currently on sale for $46.99.

If you’re looking for flavored lubricant that doesn’t taste like lube, Wicked Lube has you covered. With a ton of flavors and a non-sticky feel, this sex toy safe lube is the way to go. I’ve been a fan of lubricant for years, but I’ve never found a flavored lube that didn’t just taste awful. Don’t get me wrong, I love giving oral, but who wouldn’t want it to taste like their favorite fruit or sweet in the process?

Giving good oral isn’t all about the taste. While adding something sweet to the mix that’s body safe is great, when you’re giving oral to someone with a penis especially, the wetter the better. Our bodies aren’t always on the same page as we are, and producing a decent amount of saliva can be difficult at times. Whether it’s due to dehydration (drink your water!), medication, or you’re just having an off day, adding a slick and non-sticky flavored lubricant to the mix can up your head game to new levels.

Wicked Lube offers a ton of flavor options sure to satisfy anyone. Betty’s Toy Box was kind enough to send me Mango and Pink Lemonade to try, but they also have Aqua (unflavored, Sweet Peach, Cinnamon Bun, Candy Apple. Peppermint Cocoa, Salted Caramel, Vanilla Bean, Watermelon, Strawberry, Cherry, Blueberry Muffin, Pomegranate, and Mocha Java. There’s sure to be a flavor that appeals to anyone.

Is Wicked Lube Safe?

Wicked Lube is a water based lubricant, so it’s latex condom and sex toy safe. It’s paraben free and vegan, so you can be sure it’s safe for your body. However, as with any lubricant, if you notice any discomfort or irritation, please discontinue use immediately. Because it’s water based, clean up is a cinch, simply rinse away with water. It doesn’t leave a residue or sticky mess.

Our Experience with Wicked Lube Water Based Flavored Lubricant

Most of our sex toys are silicone, so I was happy to note this is a water based lubricant. Other forms of lube have their uses, but if I know we will be breaking out the toys at some point during play, I try to stick to water based lube just in case. Since the reason I wanted a flavored lube was to use during oral. that’s where we started.

You don’t need a lot, and the bottle makes it easy to use. The pump top distributes the perfect amount for oral with just a couple of pumps. I started with the Mango flavor and wasn’t disappointed. No, it doesn’t taste exactly like a mango, but it is close enough. It made oral a lot more fun, because I wasn’t focused on producing enough saliva, just having fun. Damian rinsed off and I started again with the Pink Lemonade. This one is pretty close to the flavor it touts, and I think between the two, it’s our favorite.

I love that you can segue right into toy play without having to clean up or switch out lubes. Damian squirted a couple of pumps onto my vulva and tried the flavor for himself. He prefers the pink lemonade as well. Using the Wicked Lube to help with insertion of a vibrator, he continued oral without having to stop for any changes or clean-up.

When you’re a sex toy tester, one of the ways you feel you’ve ‘made it’ is when you’re finally contacted by a high-end sex toy company and asked to test one of their toys. Maybe that’s just me! One of the happiest emails I ever received was from Lelo, asking if I would be willing to test one of their items and review it. Of course, I said yes! I’ve always wanted to own one of their toys, but haven’t been able to justify purchasing one myself due to budget constraints. Sometimes it sucks being a responsible adult!

I chose the Tiani 3, Lelo’s couples vibrator. My husband and I are always on the look out for toys we can use together. Don’t get me wrong, we both love our solo playtime, but having multi-use toys is never a bad thing. And don’t worry, the Tiani 3 can be used alone, no penis necessary.

What is the Tiani 3?

Billed as a couple’s vibrator, the Tiani 3 is a U shaped vibrating toy, designed to be used during intercourse, but it works just fine on its own. It is primarily a clitoral vibrator, with two distinct ends. The smaller end is inserted into the vagina and does not independently vibrate. Don’t worry, the vibrations from the other end definitely travel through. As this device is designed for use during intercourse, this is the end that will stimulate both partners.

Speaking of the other end, it goes over the labia and clitoris, to provide waves of pleasure by way of an intense vibrating action. And that’s not just lip service (pun intended), this tiny toy packs a big punch. And, it’s completely waterproof.

How Does it Work?

Since the toy is inside of you while in use, it may seem like you’re stuck with whatever setting you chose upon insertion. However, Lelo kindly provides you with a wireless remote (that resembles a small hockey puck) you can use to control your toy. There are three different modes of vibration available, and they’re pretty amazing.

Two of the modes are powered by Lelo’s SenseMotion technology (if you have an iPhone, you’ve encountered this tech before, it’s what runs the gyroscope used to register your steps), with the third option being a more traditional style of control.

SenseMotion Mode 1 makes the remote, as well as the massager, vibrate. You control the intensity of the vibrations by tilting the remote in either direction. The closer you move toward a 90 degree angle, the more intense the vibrations become.

SenseMotion Mode 2 also features the remote and massager vibrating, the difference being, the faster the remote is moved, the stronger the vibrations. The more excited you get with your movements, the more pleasure you’ll get!

The final mode is similar to how a remote typically functions. You can choose the intensity of the vibration by using the plus and minus buttons. The remote does not vibrate in this mode, and how you tilt or move the remote has zero bearing on the intensity or function.

I wasn’t sure why the remote vibrated in the two SenseMotion modes, but the more I thought about it, the more sense it made. If two females played with this toy, one could enjoy the Tiani 3 itself, while the other controlled the vibrations (and place the remote on their own body to feel what’s going on). It also gives sensory feedback to whomever is controlling the remote, allowing them to feel how hard the Tiani 3 is moving inside their partner’s body, giving you more control over the sensations.

My Personal Experience

Lelo prides itself on being a luxury sex toy retailer, with a fairly high price point. But are their toys really worth it? Do they really know how to provide pleasure to their customers?

That’s a resounding, yes.

Using the Tiani 3 is a learning experience. Using it for the first time, I had to bend and move it a few times before finding the right fit. What I like the most is the ability to do so, as other toys I’ve owned don’t always accommodate for different body types. Once I was able to bend and shape the device to my body, it stayed in place pretty well. There are positions it’s not a fan of. Gravity is a thing, and doggy style isn’t a recommended position for a reason.

We found that missionary or cowgirl work the best. The vibrations are consistent, starting out at what I would consider middle of the road and increasing to high. If you have a very sensitive clitoris, this toy may be too intense for you, as the contact is direct.

SenseMotion Mode 1 provides infinite combinations of pleasure and is a lot of fun to experience. I’ve had my husband, Damian, tilt the device in every conceivable direction (while I watch his movements) and enjoy the waves of pleasure that ensue.

SenseMotion Mode 2 is the easiest to use, in my opinion. Damian holds the remote in his hand, while doing what he normally does when we have intercourse. His movements change, depending on how he’s thrusting or moving, and so does the level of vibration.

Manual mode, for us, isn’t used often. I’ve read other reviews that say couples tend to use this more often when having penetrative sex, but I found it distracting to feel for the plus and minus buttons when I wanted to change the vibration (and Damian did as well), so we stick with the other two modes more often than not.

This is a couple’s vibrator, so if you’re looking for something with more intense vibration for yourself, this isn’t the toy for you. Although at the highest setting, it definitely delivers a punch, if you’re more about a direct feel on your clitoris, this may not do what you need. What I love is the fact that Damian feels the vibrations with me, which definitely makes this toy the perfect item for a male/female couple.

Where Can I Get the Tiani 3?

Lelo has the best price available online and keep this item in stock, so you don’t have to worry about availability. Now, until the end of June, you can use my code, DELUNE to receive 10 percent off any item on Lelo’s site (not valid on already discounted items).

The Bottom Line

While this toy is marketed as a couple’s vibrator, I love that you can still use it alone if you choose. With that said, having a couple’s specific toy to add to our toy box is something we’ve wanted to do for some time, and the Tiani 3 is the perfect addition. This is our first high quality toy to use together, and we couldn’t be happier. Lelo stands behind their products, provides quality customer service, and is a leader in the sex toy industry for a reason.

ROFIYTI is fairly new to the sex toy scene, but don’t let that deter you. They recently contacted me about becoming a tester for their line of toys and I agreed. Shipping is discrete and fast, and their prices are in line with other, high quality sex toy companies.

The first toy they asked me to test is their 2 in 1 Clitoral Stimulating Vibrator. Also known as the Carr, this adorable, baby pink toy is small, but packs a lot of punch in a tiny container.

Rofiyti 2 in 1 Clitoris Stimulating Vibrator

What makes this toy 2 in 1? I wasn’t too sure either, until I turned it on. The knobbed handle doubles as a clitoris stimulating vibrator, with the open end provides suction power for any part of your body that desires it. The suction isn’t super strong, so it’s great for those who have super sensitive clits and don’t like to feel as if they’re being attacked by a vacuum cleaner.

The toy is made from medical grade, body safe silicone, is very soft, and simple to clean. Since it’s 100% waterproof, you can rinse under water with ease. This also means you can enjoy the toy while in the shower or bath without worry. It charges by USB magnetic charging, with the provided cable.

How Well Does it Work?

I have had hit or miss experiences with clitoris stimulating vibrators, especially those that promise to mimic oral sex. Personally, I have thick outer lips, so whatever toy thinks it’s going to suck on my clit has to be able to get in there. Shape and size make a huge difference, which I think is accurate for anyone. Those of us with vulvas are all different.

This particular toy is wide on the suction end, therefore it doesn’t seal well around my clit. This doesn’t mean it isn’t enjoyable, it is, but it takes a bit more work than it probably would for someone whose clitoris is more exposed.

My favorite way to use this toy is the handle end directly on my clitoris. It has a nice buzzy feeling, with a bit of rumble, and can bring me to orgasm fairly quickly this way. It’s also small enough for me to use during intercourse, providing extra stimulation to my clit while being penetrated.

The suction end does work on my nipples quite nicely and we’ve used it for that more than anything. Though, I will say, the hubby enjoyed the vibrations on his balls quite a bit when I tried it on him. The suction doesn’t really do anything for him either.

Overall, it’s a very well made toy that has multiple uses. I’m a bit disappointed I can’t get the suction part to work for clitoral stimulation, but that’s solely due to the way my body is shaped, it says nothing about the toy itself. The suction does work, as is evidenced by my nipple play, just not exactly where I want it.

If you have an exposed clit, and want to try a clitoris stimulating vibrator, I would recommend this product. At $49.95, it’s a great price for what it does. You can grab yours here!

Since the advent of the human being, sex has been about touch. Whether foreplay or just going straight to the point, to have sex, you had to be in contact with one another. Thanks to technologies like the internet, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity, the 21st century has blessed us with sex toys that are changing the way we view and perform sex. Our tech devices can talk to each other from across the globe, so naturally, our sex toys are trying to keep pace.

Among the most high tech sex toys out there, perhaps none of them has been as big a hit as Lovense’s Lush 2 vibrator. An unassuming little pink toy, it’s cute and powerful.

I’ll admit, I didn’t know what it was until I saw it in use during online cam shows. Adult performers have been in touch with tech longer than I have. When in use, all you can see is an adorable little pink tail exiting the user’s body. It turns out, a vibrator that can be controlled by someone other than the person who’s wearing it, is powerful enough to deliver serious sexual pleasure, and quiet enough to be used in public, is a pretty compelling concept.

Just because something can work in theory doesn’t mean it can work in practice. Unless the toy performs seamless and smoothly, it doesn’t take long for arousal to fade while you’re trying to work out a glitch. There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of using a toy, and it no longer working.

But don’t worry, I’ve done the research for you and break down everything you need to know about the Lovense Lush 2.

Who Should Buy the Lovense Lush 2?

We don’t judge. Anyone who wants to enjoy the pleasures of the Lush 2 should definitely purchase one for themselves. However, while you can technically use the Lush 2 in your anus, it is designed for the vagina. Don’t fret, Lush has booty specific options available, too, the Hush and the Edge.

The Lush 2 makes a great gift for your lover, whether they intend to play alone or give you control. It’s also perfect for anyone who creates adult content, as control of the toy can be shared all over the world.

Specs of the Lovense Lush 2

The Lush 2 is one of Lovense’s many internet-connected sex toys, and likely its most successful to date. It’s an internal vibrator designed to stimulate the G-spot, while its signature pink tail dangles outside the user’s body. The power button is at the tip of the tail, an improvement from the original Lush. It’s through the tail that the Lush 2 communicates with other devices.

It’s waterproof, USB-rechargeable, and made from body-safe materials. According to the Lovense website the charge lasts between 2.5 and 3 hours. I researched reviews from other users, and found with occasional use, the battery life seems to be as Lovense states. However, for those who use it more often, it appears to only hold a charge for about 2 hours of continuous use, and decreases over time. This is expected when it comes to a rechargeable battery, more use equals wearing out the battery.

The toy comes with a one year warranty from Lovense (another reason to buy direct!), so if it stops working for any reason covered, they’ll replace the item, free.

Its powerful motor makes it a fun toy by itself, but what really makes it special is what’s in the tail — the connection to the internet, along with Lovense’s app functionality, which lets other people control the toy — whether someone the user knows, or someone they don’t.

There aren’t any additional gadgets in the box, and you pair the toy to your phone (or your partner’s) by downloading the app, signing up and being within range, rather than entering a specific code. If you need to connect your toy to a PC, you will have to purchase an adapter. Lovense sells them for around $15.

Don’t let the simple design of the toy fool you, the Lush 2’s app is relatively tricked out, and once the two are paired, you can explore all the functionalities at your disposal.

Close Range mode has the following options: Alarm (wake your partner up with a jolt!), Music (pair the vibrations to the beat of your favorite song), Remote (control the intensity of the vibrations on your phone), My Patterns (create personalized vibration patterns), and Sound (sound-activated vibrations).

Long Distance mode allows you to add, request or block other users, as well as chat with them within the app. You can also create unique ‘control’ links that allow them to control the toy for different lengths of time (from just a second to a full hour), and Patterns mode offers you a sampling of vibration patterns other users have created.

Why We Love the Lovense Lush 2

  • It’s perfect for public play– While its powerful yet quiet motor makes it perfect for secretly pleasuring a partner in public, it’s up to you and your partner to keep your moans under control! Coming in at less than 49dB, it’s less audible than a whisper.
  • It’s ideal for Dom/sub couples– Do you and your significant other have a bit of a kinky power-play situation going on? You can turn the intensity of it up by exploring the Lush 2’s basic functionalities. One partner using their phone to control the other partner’s pleasure from near or far, whether in public or in private, can be extremely hot.
  • It’s great over long distances– Good news for people in long-distance relationships, people with far-away crushes and people who want strangers to be able to control their pleasure: The Long Distance function means you can let anyone in the world control the toy remotely by sending them a secret link. There’s only about a one-second lag between the adjustments made in the app and the toy’s vibrations, which means it’s basically in real time.
  • It’s great for cammers– If you and your partner want to make some money using your webcam to get sexual with strangers, having a Lush 2 seems like a no-brainer. Being able to send users control links means you can charge them for the ability to play with the toy’s intensity for a little bit. No need for a partner, you can do this solo, too.
  • The app is full of options– The toy itself might be pretty straightforward, but the app is clearly the product of a lot of work, too. It’s got a unique and cohesive look, and options like waking your partner up with vibrations or timing the vibrations to a sexy song take the concept from good to great.

The Drawbacks of the Lovense Lush 2

No toy is perfect, including the Lush 2. For starters, Long Distance mode is a lot less flexible than Close Range mode — rather than being able to loop patterns, you’re left with a simple up-and-down slider to increase or decrease the intensity.

The lack of clitoral stimulation also means that the toy is really just a very high-tech internal vibrator. If you want a blended orgasm, you’ll have to bring something else to the table, whether oral, manual or a second toy. If that’s not something you care about, then this isn’t a con at all!

The Bottom Line

Out of all the wearable/egg options you have today, the Lovense Lush 2 tops them all. With a one year warranty, powerful vibrations, and multiple ways to control the toy, you can’t go wrong. If you’re ready to purchase your very own, check out all the products available on the Lovense website.

Starlet 2 is a clitoral stimulator that can offer unique and orgasmic experiences through contactless air suction. As an upgraded version from the original Starlet, this model embraced some big improvements including adding waterproof function, enhanced button-control and more.

Starlet 2 is an intro-level suction toy in the Womanizer family. It is very light, simple and straightforward. So, if you are looking for more sophisticated functions, I recommend trying Womanizer Duo or Womanizer Classic instead. But for the price, you can’t beat what the Starlet 2 has to offer.

Briefly speaking, Starlet 2 is an ideal toy for those of you who want a simple yet high-quality, affordable yet effective clitoral stimulator. Also, the Starlet 2 is a beginner-friendly model to try out.

Key Features

1. Lively Color Options

The Womanizer Starlet 2 comes in three bold colors: Sapphire Blue, Coral, and Cherry Red. All three colors are quite lively and adorable. Being honest, I’m thrilled there are options beyond the typical pink and purple.

2. Safe Material

The body of the Starlet 2 is made of ABS plastic, which offers a smooth sensation for your hand to hold. The suction head is made of hypoallergenic medical-grade silicone, which enables a soft and gentle wrap for your clitoris.

3. Light-Weight

Starlet 2 is a rather light toy. It only weighs 70 g (0.15 lb), which is even a bit lighter than the Womanizer Liberty (90g/0.2lb) – a travel-friendly model. Therefore, the Starlet 2 became my new travel pal to go out with.

4. Small in Size

As a palm-size toy that measures 104mm x 55mm x 48mm (4″ x 2.2″ x 1.9″), you can easily fit Starlet 2 in your makeup bag. The only thing you need to pay attention to is that there’s no travel lock equipped for this toy, so be careful not to accidentally turn it on.

5. 100% Waterproof

This is one of the big improvements Starlet 2 embraces compared to the original model. Now it is completely waterproof!

Despite the size of the toy, the motor of this toy is rather strong, which leads to divine and intense air suction to your clitoris. Worry that the sensation is too strong? This does happen, but don’t worry about that! If you prefer it a little less intense, there are 4 levels of intensities to choose from.

6. Quick charge & Quick use

This is a super handy toy when it comes to rechargeability. A full charging process only takes about 30 minutes then you will be able to play with the toy for 30 minutes.

7. Noise

Starlet 2 is a rather quiet clit stimulator. Even on the highest speed, it doesn’t exceed 55 dB, which is the noise level of a quiet living room. And the toy is even quieter when applied to the clit.

How to Use Womanizer Starlet 2

Starlet 2 is very intuitive and straightforward to use. I am sure you would figure out how to use this toy within seconds. Using a bit of lube on the silicone tip of the Starlet and some on your clit helps the toy ‘wave’ more smoothly. Then just start the toy! There are two buttons, a plus and minus. To activate, press the plus button for 2 seconds. Then apply to your clit and enjoy the waves of pleasure. In order to switch off the toy, press the minus button for 2 seconds. It does auto shut off after 10 minutes.

Charging the Toy

The Womanizer Starlet 2 comes with a magnetic charging cable. The magnetic charging system allows the toy to be completely waterproof. Starlet 2 promotes a quick charge and quick play concept. It only takes around 30 minutes to fully charge your device and the playtime is about 30 minutes as well. Once fully charged, Starlet 2 has a steady LED light.

My Experience

I have to say, the Womanizer Starlet 2 is outstanding on the design and sensation, but there are a few things that are concerning with this model. Here are my experiences and my opinions.

The charging process was quite smooth and quick. I really like this point. But you only get 30 minutes of play after each charge. This isn’t too much of a problem for me as I barely need minutes to “finish” with this toy, but some of you may want to take it into consideration.

There are no pattern options with Starlet 2. This doesn’t bother me much because I prefer continuous stimulation anyway. However, one thing you do need to take into consideration is that Starlet 2, unlike other Womanizer toys, doesn’t come with an optional larger head.

This is unfriendly to women who have a relatively larger clit because the current size may not wrap your clit well, or at least it may not wrap your clit in a comfortable way. The Womanizer store does sell heads for an extra cost.

There were some occasions where I did not use lube with this toy and it worked perfectly fine. So if you don’t have lube on hand, it’s not a big deal. But if you do want to use lube, make sure to only use water-based lube so that the silicone head won’t be damaged.

The Bottom Line

The price of the Womanizer Starlet 2 puts it in a great category of toys. It’s relatively inexpensive so trying it out won’t break the bank. Though it’s not designed for coupled play really, it can be used during penetrative sex, if you’re okay with having an intense orgasm pretty quickly! Which in today’s world, isn’t the worst thing that can happen.

The Hitachi Magic Wand (Original Magic Wand) is marketed as a personal massager, but we all know what we really use it for. Okay, I massage my entire body with it, but that’s definitely not why I bought it! When this item was released initially released in 1968 (yes, that long ago and still going STRONG), it was originally manufactured for relieving tension and relaxing sore muscles, but is most famous for its use as a sex toy.

Sex educator Betty Dodson popularized its use as a vibrator and masturbation aid for women during the sex-positive movement in the late 1960s. It functions effectively as a clitoral vibrator and is able to bring many people to orgasm. The wand is 12 inches (30 cm) long and weighs 1.2 pounds (540 g) with stimulation provided by its rubberized 2.5-inch (64 mm) head. This is important to note, as anything lighter is most likely a knock-off.

Be sure you’re getting the real thing.

Well known as the Cadillac of vibrators, the Original Magic Wand (as it’s now branded) is the world’s most recognizable sex toy.

What’s the Fuss About the Magic Wand?

I’ll admit, I’m a skeptic when it comes to the boasts of sex toy companies. Of course, they all want to sell their product. What impressed me the most about the Original Magic Wand is, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad review!

What makes this toy so popular is the type of vibrations it gives. They’re not buzzy at all, but rumbly, which for people like me, means an almost instant clitoral orgasm.

Though this toy isn’t made for insertion, you can purchase attachments that fit over the head to accommodate any insertion fantasy you may have. The covers also act as a barrier to the rubberized head (which is porous) to make clean up even easier.

There Has to be a Down Side, Right?

No toy is perfect, thought the Original Magic Wand comes close. But it does have its downsides. The head is made of rubberized material, not body safe silicone. It can’t be exposed to water at all, so cleaning is not the easiest. We recommend a soft, wrung out cloth to wipe it down after use. You can also spray a toy cleaner directly on the cloth and clean.

The Original Magic Wand is corded, which limits your movements a bit. The cord is six feet long, so you have a bit of wiggle room, but not much. There is a cordless version available now, which also features a silicone head, so it’s close to perfect.

If you’re looking for a discrete toy, this is not the one. It is LOUD. If you cover yourself with a blanket during use, it cuts down on the noise a bit, but not much. So if you need something your neighbors or housemates won’t hear, this isn’t the toy for you.

It’s recommended for use up to 20 minutes, otherwise, you run the risk of it over-heating. From personal experience, I can tell you, it does begin to get warm around the 15-20 minute mark.

But for me, that’s not a huge deal when I’m using it for clitoral stimulation. Why? Because never has it taken even 15 minutes for me to cum with this toy. Ever. If I get close to that mark, I’ve already had multiple orgasms.

The Bottom Line

Overall, this is a must have for any sex toy connoisseur. I highly recommend everyone have one in their bedside table. Being honest, if for some reason this toy doesn’t do it for you sexually, you’ll have one helluva powerful personal massager on your hands. I really do use it both ways! My husband has enjoyed the vibrations before a back massage at least as many times as I’ve enjoyed the sexual pleasure it brings.

If you choose the Original Magic Wand, the price is around $60 USD, which isn’t unreasonable. If you upgrade to the Magic Wand Plus (which has a silicone head and cord you can store), you’re looking at around $80 USD. For the ultimate upgrade, there’s the Magic Wand Rechargeable, pricing around $129 USD.

Being honest, the Rechargeable is not really worth it for the cost, unless you’re adamant about not being corded. The Magic Wand Plus will be your best option for body safe material with rumbles you’ll feel for years.

The Lovense Hush butt plug is a smooth, sexy, powerful toy designed to stimulate all your anal pleasure spots. It comes in two sizes, small and medium. The main selling point of this butt plug, compared to others on the market, is Hush can give you pleasure from a distance. It’s a remote-controlled toy, operated from yours or your partner’s cell phone.

The Bluetooth chip inside the toy connects to your phone, and your partner’s phone, so you can control it via Wi-Fi.

Who Is Hush For?

Lovense Hush butt plug is designed for solo play, discreet public play, and long distance couples – it’s a good option for an intense boost when you’re having sex, for sexy foreplay, or for those times when your partner is out of town and you need a solo session.

How Does the Lovense Hush Work?

The Lovense Hush butt plug is compatible with both Android and iPhone. In order to hook up, you download the Lovense app from the store. Turn on the toy and check it’s working by seeing the flashing light; it also buzzes to let you know it’s connected.

Then you follow the instructions on the app to find and connect the toy. It’s quite simple. However, if you choose to use it with your PC, you will need to purchase a USB Bluetooth Adapter to connect. Mac’s don’t require the additional item.

To connect with a partner you go to the “Long Distance” tab on the app, and tap to add a contact. They get an email from you with the request and once they have accepted they will show up in the “Long Distance” tab. There’s a messaging section where you can let each other know you’re ready to play, and you can adjust settings for each partner to allow auto-play or control.

Pros and Cons of the Hush

The smooth, inviting body-safe silicone feels just right, and the matte finish is stylish and modern. The butt plug itself is weighty without being hefty. It comes in two sizes, small and medium, so one is sure to work for your needs.

The power on/off button is on the base of the toy and it is not immediately obvious. You also have to hold it down for a few seconds to turn it on or turn it off, but this is a good thing as it prevents the toy switching itself off when you’re sitting down.

The vibrations are definitely strong. You have multiple patterns to choose from, and 3 vibration levels.

You can also use the app on your phone or computer. Tap or slide the screen to control the vibrations, moving your finger up and down, and it is really responsive – a bit too responsive sometimes, as taking your finger off the app brings the fun to an abrupt end. It seems to work best when you record your own short sequence, which then plays on and on automatically. You can create as many patterns as you like. Or you can just put it on pure and simple vibrate, when you’re not feeling creative. Great when you want to let it take over.

Speaking of taking over, the Lovense Hush butt plug is ideal for long-distance relationships. So long as you both have an internet connection, it works, no matter if you’re on the other side of the world. They control the vibrations on their screen, setting up the patterns and deciding how fast, slow, or majorly intense they want the toy to go. And it also works with the element of surprise – keep it in and your partner can give you a buzz whenever they feel like it.

It seems like Hush is an excellent option when you want to switch between controlling the toy from a long distance or from close range. The connection seems to be pretty stable and you don’t have to keep your phone right next to you either.

The silicone is also completely waterproof so you can shower with this thing in, or just leave it in with plenty of lube and don’t have to worry about damage.

It is created for wearability above all else, and the makers say you can keep it in for long periods of time as you get your regular day done. It is pretty quiet, but it’s not silent. You can definitely hear it when it’s on a full vibe and it’s inside you. It’s discreet enough to be worn in a busy public place but I wouldn’t want it on when things were quiet.

The sound-activated vibe is fun! Any noise will activate it, so keep that in mind.

The Bottom Line

This is a luxury toy with so many features, you can’t go wrong. Lovense has taken a lot of time to perfect their technology and it shows. Using the app is simple and doesn’t require any special equipment or knowledge (as long as you’re not using with a PC). You can stimulate yourself with the app or give over the controls to your partner for extra fun.

If butt plugs aren’t your thing, Lovense also has the Lush, which is made specifically for women (for vaginal wear) and offers a lot of the same features.

Either way you go, you can’t make a bad choice, so why not purchase both? Imagine the feeling of being full, with two rock star toys, that your partner can control so you’re truly hands free. The Lovense Hush butt plug plus the Lush? Sounds like the perfect date night to me!
