A representative of Proprogifts reached out to me recently to ask if I would be interested in testing one of their toys, the clitoral sucking tongue vibrator. Since one of these has been on my wish list for quite some time, I happily agreed.
My friend and fellow sex writer, Emma Austin, recently tested the Fantasy For Her Ultimate Pleasure Double Ended Vibrator (whew, that’s a mouthful!) and I was seriously impressed by what she had to say. If you’re interested, you can purchase this toy from Betty’s Toy Box. If you’re in Canada, check the links in Emma’s post for ordering information.
The Fantasy for Her is a pussy pump, a clit licker, and the handle can be used as a vibrating dildo. You can’t beat a three in one toy for pleasure! Sadly, I can’t justify $130 for a toy at the moment, so I figured I would just live vicariously through Emma for awhile. Then, I was contacted about this clitoral sucking tongue vibrator and thought, well, it’s not exactly the same, but it should give me an idea of whether I want to spend the cash when I have it on an upgraded model.
The Clitoral Sucking Tongue Vibrator
The toy provided to me by Proprogift is pretty well made, using medical grade silicone so it’s body safe, and mostly waterproof. I would not recommend submersing it, but you’re safe to wash the head of the vibrator under running water. Just be sure to dry it carefully.
It comes with two silicone covers that go around the tongue portion of the vibrator. They are different sizes, one is meant for use with your pussy, the other on your breasts. Honestly, you can use them interchangeably depending on your body’s shape. I found the smaller one works best on my pussy, as the larger one doesn’t allow the tongue to reach my clit.
It also comes with a USB charging cable, the one I prefer which is non-magnetic. I don’t know why, but I have the hardest time with the damn magnetic ones!
Unlike the Fantasy For Her, this toy is not insertable, and isn’t marketed as a pussy pump, but it does pump your outer lips when you achieve suction, using the provided covers. That’s the part I was most excited about, and the one I had the most difficulty achieving on my own.
Using the Toy
It takes about 4 hours to come to a complete charge, but after that, you have at least 3 hours of playtime ahead of you before requiring another charge. I decided to try it during solo play first, wanting to learn the ins and outs of the toy before bringing it to bed with my husband.
Long story short, I am not a fan of using it by myself. It’s difficult to get the angle right, when you’re trying to use the cover to achieve suction. I struggled a lot, and finally ended up removing the cover and just using the tongue portion.
Now that is a winner for sure. It takes some time to get the right pattern for you (there are 5 to choose from), but once you figure out which pattern works best for your masturbation style, it’s a simple matter of applying lube and letting that soft tongue do it’s job.
Playing With My Husband
That evening, I brought it out and asked if he would use it on me, with the cover. Definitely a different experience. Because he can look directly at what he’s doing and not try to do it by feel like I was, he was able to get the suction right and pump my pussy lips while the tongue did it’s job.
Completely different experience. And one I’ll be repeating over and over.
We also tried playing with the toy on him and figured out he isn’t a fan of the suction part, but definitely enjoyed the tongue licking at his balls and the tip of his penis.
This is a quality item for a great price. It’s around $37 USD, so it won’t break the bank. If you’ve been interested in a clitoral sucking tongue vibrator, but want to try one before spending a lot of money on a higher end model, this one is a great place to start.

Sohimi reached out to me recently and asked if I would be interested in testing their upgraded Electric Vacuum Penis Pump. Of course, I said yes! I don’t have a penis, but my husband does and we were both excited to test out this pump together.
Although we’ve used a few different male masturbators, we’ve never owned an actual penis pump before. When I asked my husband if he was interested, I’ll admit, he was a bit hesitant. He was afraid using a vacuum pump could possible damage his penis. I can understand his trepidation, I’m not sure I would want to vacuum my lady bits on a regular basis!
So, off to research!
Benefits and Risks of Using an Electric Vacuum Penis Pump
Penis pumps can be a good erectile dysfunction treatment for several reasons:
Penis pumps are effective. With practice and correct use, the majority of men can get an erection sufficient for sex.
Penis pumps pose less of a risk than do other treatments. The risk of side effects or complications is lower than it is with any other erectile dysfunction treatment.
The overall cost is lower. After the initial purchase, using a penis pump costs less than any other erectile dysfunction treatment.
Penis pumps are noninvasive. They don’t require surgery, inserting medication into the tip of your penis or penile injections.
Penis pumps can be used with other treatments. A penis pump can be used along with medications or a penile implant. For some men, a combination of erectile dysfunction treatments works best.
Using a penis pump might help you regain erectile function after certain procedures. For example, using a penis pump might help restore your ability to get a natural erection after prostate surgery or radiation therapy for prostate cancer.
Although my husband doesn’t have erectile dysfunction, it’s still okay for him to use an electric vacuum penis pump to enhance his erection. Though, please don’t think using a penis pump will make your penis larger permanently. The effects of the pump diminish over time, so, you’ll likely get a bit more girth and possibly even more length right after using, it doesn’t remain.
Penis pumps are safe to use for most men, but there are some potential risks involved. Before using a vacuum pump, you should know:
You’re at an increased risk of bleeding if you take blood-thinning medications. Examples include warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) and clopidogrel (Plavix).
A penis pump might not be safe if you have sickle cell anemia or another blood disorder. These conditions can make you susceptible to blood clots or bleeding.
Potential side effects:
Pinpoint-sized red dots (petechiae). This is caused by bleeding under the surface of the skin of the penis.
Numbness, coldness or bluish-colored skin. This can occur when the constriction band is in place.
Pain or bruising. Knowing how to use the penis pump correctly can help you avoid injury to your penis.
Feeling of trapped semen. You might feel like your semen is trapped when you ejaculate, or ejaculation might be painful. Some manufacturers make constriction rings with a small cutout that might help with this.
After reading all this, we decided it was worth a shot and set out to test our new toy!
Sohimi Electric Vacuum Penis Pump Specs
This pump comes with a plastic tube, two attachments to slide your penis into, rings to secure the attachment to the tube and for your penis, an electric pump, small tube of lubricant, charging cable for the pump, all enclosed in a nice bag for storage.
The attachments are a pocket pussy, which you can use alone as well, and a neutral one (for those who prefer a non-anatomical look). I was a little confused at first as to how to keep the attachments in place, but quickly realized the cock rings that come with the toy are dual purpose. We used the larger one to secure the attachments to the plastic tube (there’s a ridge on one end of the tube, which the ring is supposed to go around).
Please wash this item with mild soap before use. The manufacturer coats the pocket pussy in talc to keep it from getting sticky, and you’re going to want to wash this before you put your dick in it.
How it Works
This is a fairly simple to use toy. Pick your attachment, secure it to the plastic tube, attach the pump, lube up, and insert your penis. Once you’ve got your penis inside, turn on the pump and choose your settings. If you press the plus button, it goes from 1-4, which we figured out is the amount of time the pump suctions. The amount of suction can’t be changed, it starts slow and increases to a certain amount and stays there. If you flip through the settings, what you’re changing is how long the pump remains on before releasing air.
There is a quick release button, which you should find immediately, in case the pressure is too much.
My husband found he does not enjoy the suction from the electric vacuum penis pump for longer than setting one allows. We definitely had to use the quick release button a few times until we got the hang of how it functioned.
What Does it Feel Like?
According to my husband, it is very intense. I think where we made our first mistake, was getting him somewhat hard before inserting his penis into the toy. This isn’t necessary at all, and probably contributed to him feeling like it was way too much pressure.
Also, don’t be surprised if your penis is extremely red after use. It’s one of the potential side effects and isn’t dangerous as long as you don’t over do it.
The Bottom Line
Being honest, this isn’t a toy we will use very often, which says nothing about the company, just our personal preferences. It was pretty neat to watch his dick grow and thicken within the machine, but it didn’t last. I think because it was somewhat painful for him (because we overdid it), he lost his erection shortly after we stopped using the electric vacuum penis pump. We were able to get it back quickly, but the effects of the machine were lost when he lost his erection.
Overall, it’s a very well made product and at $46 USD, not a bad price point. From now on, for us, I think we’ll stick to male masturbators and leave the pumps to someone else.
There’s a new class of tech-savvy sex toys that are unlike anything else your orgasm has ever seen. Unlike traditional vibes which use…well, vibration, a new batch of sonic vibrators creates airwaves around your clitoris to suck it upward, stimulating more of your clit than you probably thought possible. I’d tried vibrators like this before and let me tell you, damn. But the sonic vibrator from Lelo, the company responsible for some of the most high-end sex toys on the market, has totally revolutionized the orgasm.
The Lelo Sona, a sleek “sonic massager ” with different vibration modes and intensity settings, and a head that looks like a little mouth, is a true game-changer. Unlike other vibes, you don’t need to move the Sona at all—place the mouth over your clitoris and it does all the work for you. The result? A deliciously good orgasm without having to lift a finger. If more pressure is your thing, Lelo also makes the Sona Cruise. What’s the difference? When you press against the Cruise, it intuits you need more power and ups the game even further.
What’s The Lelo Sona Like?
Other sonic sex toys I’ve tried before vibrate very softly because their main function is suction—it feels like they’re reaching deep within your core, pulling an orgasm out of you. The Lelo Sona feels more like a vibrator, with extremely powerful vibrations on the surface of the clitoris. It’s remniscent of standing in front of large speakers and feeling the vibrations throughout your body.
Still, the sonic vibration action was good. It created a prolonged climax after a sensual buildup, the kind of luxuriously drawn-out orgasm that still has you feeling tingly minutes later. While its competitors aim to get women off quickly—and do a damn good job at it—the Lelo Sona aims for more sustained pleasure. And it succeeds too: My orgasms from this one take more like four or five minutes, rather than two or three, but they follow a very distinctive arc. Around a minute or two before climax, my vagina starts having singular contractions spaced a few seconds apart, each of which feels like its own mini orgasm. I’d describe the process as more of a hill than a mountain with a sharp peak.
Unlike the Womanizer and Satisfyer, this one isn’t great for attempting multiple orgasms. The vibrations are so powerful it would probably leave your clit in a coma. If you’re like me, and typically prefer your vibrator at it’s highest setting, you may find you’re not okay with that with this toy.
The second generation of these toys are a lot softer than their original counterparts. The mouth was re-shaped for comfort as well, so bonus for sure.
I wouldn’t be surprised if even more toys following this suction model come out over the next few years. So far, although they have the same basic premise, none of the different models I’ve tried has felt too similar. The Satisfyer and Womanizer are pretty alike, but the Lelo Sona and the Cruise provide a different kind of pleasure that’s not really better or worse, merely suited to different needs.
What’s the Big Difference Between the Two?
Price plays a factor, as the Cruise is around $30 USD more than the Sona. What do you get for the difference in price? Power. The Cruise doesn’t ramp down the motor when you press against your body, so if this is something you’re prone to doing, the Cruise will be the better option. If not, then the Sona is just fine.
The Sona Cruise is also a lot louder than the Sona. There’s no hiding what you’re doing when playing with either toy, as neither of them are remotely quiet, but the Cruise is exceptionally loud.
The Bottom Line
Whether you choose the Sona or the Sona Cruise, you’re getting an awesome sonic vibrator to add to your collection. The feeling is much different than traditional suction based clitoral stimulators, so it’s worth the investment.

Adorime provided this sex toy free of charge, in exchange for an honest review. All links provided are affiliate links, so not only will you get a quality toy, you’ll also be supporting my work.
While shopping via Amazon can be tricky when it comes to sex toys (there are a lot of low quality toys, and copies of larger name brand items), I’ve had an ongoing relationship with Adorime for about a year now, and have always received high quality original toys from their company. Recently, they sent us this adorable pink couple’s vibrator to test.
At first glance, this toy appears to be a larger cock ring. And it can be used just as simply as that. Place the toy on your partner’s penis, and enjoy sex how you usually do, with some rumbly vibrations added! Unlike most cock rings, the Adorime Couple’s Vibrator isn’t a closed circle. It’s horseshoe shaped, which allows for greater flexibility regarding penis size and what you can do with the toy, other than using it as a cock ring.
When my husband and I tried this the first time, we figured we would use it as a cock ring and go from there. We placed it with the ends point up, so during missionary, they would hopefully hit my clit. It worked! Every stroke touched my clit with rumbling vibrations and definitely added to the pleasure we both felt.
We wanted to see how it felt if the ends pointed downward, and he wasn’t disappointed. I could still feel the vibrations, since it vibrates the entire toy, but they weren’t pinpointed to my clit. For those with sensitive clit’s, this may be your best option for use. For him, the pinpointed vibrations targeting his scrotum were excellent.
You can also use this toy alone. It’s fairly flexible, I found, so I could open it up a bit, insert one end into my vagina, while using the other end to stimulate my clit. I like toys that are multiuse!
Why the Adorime Couple’s Vibrator is a Winner
For us, having toys we can both use and enjoy is a plus. Sure, I’m the one who plays with toys more often than not, but being able to incorporate our toys during playtime together is always a win-win situation. The Adorime Couple’s Vibrator allows us both to feel the pleasures it offers, while also being a solo use toy.
It comes with a magnetic USB charger, which enables this toy to be 100% waterproof (no holes for charging!). It takes about an hour to come to a full charge when you receive it, and about an hour and half from completely dead. So far, we’ve played with it for close to an hour at a time and still had plenty of battery.
You can wash it easily and even submerge it. So, bathtime fun is completely okay! I do recommend drying it well, especially on the metal connections for the charger, so as not to accumulate rust.
This toy also comes with a remote control, so you can control the 9 variations of vibration while your partner is wearing it.
Overall, this is a high quality toy, for a reasonable price. Right now, it’s $27 through Adorime’s shop on Amazon, with free shipping for Prime members.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Recently, the lovely Jaye Wilde, erotic audio performer extraordinaire, contacted me and asked if I would be interested in a collaboration.
Who am I to say no to a sexy woman?
Some of Jaye’s listeners wanted her to create a how-to series. She’ll tell you, she’s not a writer, but would be happy to provide her sexy voice to my words. I was thrilled! I have a fairly extensive backlog of articles that would work perfectly for this project.
Wilde About Sex is Born
And so, our new project was born. I thought Wilde About Sex was the perfect name and Jaye agreed. Each week, we’ll upload audio only videos to our YouTube channel on Wednesdays.
But don’t fret, if YouTube isn’t your thing, we’ve also started sharing our work as a podcast on Anchor.fm. Anchor is a great platform, as they make podcasting as easy as you can imagine. They even distribute your work to multiple providers. So you can find us wherever you listen to podcasts already.
How You Can Participate
We love to hear from our listeners. Do you have a topic you’d like to learn more about? Is there something you’ve always wanted to try but weren’t sure how it would go over with your partner?
The idea of a sex machine has been intriguing to me since the first time I saw one at a swinger’s club.
So much so, I convinced my second husband to build one for me.
Although it was rudimentary, it got the job done for a fraction of the cost of a branded machine, which were upwards of $1000 back then. Being the tech savvy person he was, he even tried to integrate the machine with computer controls, which didn’t exactly work as he planned.
Overall, it was a neat experience, but left me wanting something a bit less DIY.
Hismith recently reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their latest sex machine. I couldn’t say yes fast enough. My dream was coming true, I would finally be the proud owner of a legitimate sex machine.
Pricing: The Best Bang For Your Buck
While the cost of ownership of a sex machine has decreased in the years since I first became aware of them, they’re still a hefty investment. You’ll want to ensure you’re getting the best quality machine for your price point. If you order from my link, be sure to use code HSM10 at checkout to get a free spring attachment, valued at $30.
Hismith offers a number of sex machines in a variety of price points. With something to meet the needs of just about anyone, they’re an obvious place to shop.
According to their website, these are the current options available; priced low to high:
Hismith Auto Thrusting Machine– This is their lowest priced model. It’s a tabletop machine, with suction cups for extra hold. The stroke length is 2.4 inches and it features a 3XLR connector.
Hismith Affordable Supermatic Fucking Machine– This model is just a bit more than the thrusting machine and is set up like a ‘machine gun’. It seems sturdier. The stroke length is 2.4 inches and also features a 3XLR connector.
Hismith Rechargeable Portable Fucking Machine Capsule– For those who don’t want a bulky machine, this is the lowest priced portable option available. It is remote and app controlled, so you can send a link to anyone and hand over control with ease. This is the first machine on our list which features the kliclock attachment system.
Hismith Table Top 2–Premium Sex Machine with KlicLok System– This is the upgraded version of their original table top sex machine. Emma Austin recently reviewed this item, which you can read here.
Hismith APP Controlled Canon Series– This machine packs a lot of punch for a mid-range price. It’s design is compact, but don’t let that fool you. It has just as much torque as the larger machines!
Hismith Premium Remote Controlled Sex Machine– A heavier duty machine, complete with remote control, this option gives you the longest stroke length available from Hismith, up to 6 inches!
Hismith Premium Quad Penetration APP Controlled Sex Machine– Have you always wondered what DP would be like? Well, this powerful machine has you covered. With a stroke length of just shy of 6 inches and up to 240 RPMs of speed, you’ll have your wish granted. It can be app controlled, wireless remote controlled, or wired.
Hismith Tip Activated Sex Machine– this is the machine I have, so let’s get into the specs, shall we?
About the Hismith tip activated sex machine
Upon opening the box, the first thing I noticed was the heavy-duty bag the machine was packed in. The straps are well sewn, so no worries about them breaking. The sex machine is not lightweight by any means, coming in at about 25 pounds.
The machine comes with everything you need to assemble it and get started.
Inside the bag:
1 × premium sex machine
2 x solid steel legs and 2 x solid steel cross bars
1 x L-wrench
1 × portable nylon bag
1 × wired controller
1 × APP and remote controller
1 × 8″(21 cm) silicone dildo with water based lubricant
Power and Stroke of the Sex Machine
These are the two important features that show if the sex machine is good or corners have been cut.
With cheap thrusting sex machines, you’ll notice short stroke length. If you’re in the market for something more affordable than the model I have, you’ll have to sacrifice stroke length.
If the motor is weak, and the machine meets any resistance, it will stop or bind up. Not an issue with this Hismith Sex Machine. During testing, I realized this machine is intuitive. When it met resistance, instead of stopping, it just slows down.
The parts, motor, solid metal (for weight) just cost too much for companies to use and be able to provide a cheaper machine. And even the software that comes with it isn’t cheap. Cheap and well-built don’t go together. Don’t settle for less than you deserve.
With Hismith you get 100W, 300N cm torque output that feels like having sex with power. Because it is. I can’t tell you the horsepower, but trust me, it’s more than enough.
Power means nothing if it’s not coupled with deep thrusting. The stroke length is easily adjustable from 1 to 6 inches (average penis size is 5.17 inches). So you have choices, lots of them.
How Loud Is The Machine?
If you’ve got kids running around or nosy neighbors it usually is a good idea to lock the doors and crank up the music for background noise. However, this machine is super quiet.
This video demonstrates both how to assemble the sex machine and what you get in the package. At 5min20s mark, the demonstrator runs the machine full blast if you want to hear the noise level.
It sounds louder than you think. 50dB is not very loud in the grand scheme of things. It’s comparable to a whisper or soft music.
Troubleshooting: What if things go wrong?
This is a big deal, especially when you’ve forked out a good chunk of change.
I haven’t found, so far, any other sex machine company that gets so many positive reviews. Their Amazon store has a 97% positive approval rating over the lifetime of the store. Hismith offers a 1-year warranty for the whole sex machine and a 2 year warranty for the motor.
Their customer service/troubleshooting is handled by email and their turn-around time is about 8 hours. Keep in mind, their customer service team is in China, so accommodate for time difference.
How Fast Is The Delivery?
Hismith delivers from whatever closest warehouse there is to you. So, if you’re in the United States like I am, your machine will be delivered from their Amazon Flagship Store, here in the US.
It took approximately 4 days for me to receive everything ordered. The machine itself was here in 3 days.
The shipping is discreet. Mine came in an Amazon outer box, with the item in a neutral brown box with Hismith Automatic device printed on the label.
No sensitive words.
Once assembled, you can also use the bag the machine comes with for storage. If you don’t want to disassemble, the model I received even comes with a handy dust cover, which goes over the entire unit, minus the legs, making it easy to discreetly store in the corner of your room without question.
By default, this Hismith comes with Quick Air connector or Kliclok. Mine also came with a six inch insertable length dildo and a cock sheath.
To use suction cup or Vac-u-loc dildos, you’ll need to get adapters. Hismith offers adapters for both types, as well as a ‘bandage’ adapter for male masturbators, a clip for your wands, and a spring attachment to make using heavier toys better.
You can always purchase Kliclok based dildos from Hismith, and the attachment at the base is removable if you want to use the dildo without the machine.
Here are three sex toy attachments I recommend:
spring attachment - more forgiving with the angles, requires less adjustment. If you don’t like re-setting your machine and just need a bit of an angle adjustment, the spring attachment works well.
extension rod -If you’re a squirter, like I am, this is a must. It puts your body further away from the mechanical portions of the machine while still giving you the thrust you desire.
DP attachment -this speaks for itself. If you don’t purchase the machine specifically for DP, you can purchase this attachment and make your machine a DP powerhouse.
How it Feels Being Fucked by a Sex Machine
My husband and I tested this together, so I could concentrate on the amazing feelings while he controlled the machine. Once we got it set to the depth and speed we wanted, he was hands free to do whatever he liked.
This particular machine comes with a wireless remote and a wired one. If your partner likes to sit back and watch, either remote is handy. The wireless one has a range of about 20 meters.
But this sex machine comes with a bonus. It can be controlled by an app on your phone. Just download the app and watch the sparks fly. When I’m home during the day and my husband is out working, we can text one another and set up a time for him to toy with me via machine.
I send him a link and he instantly has access. Your machine needs to be on to connect to the app and get links. This sex machine is also enabled to work with Chaturbate, a cam model site.
Once you download the software on your computer and connect it to your Chaturbate account, clients can control your machine via tips. How cool is that?
The feeling can get intense, so you’ll want to play with the controls to find the right settings for you. The app comes pre-programmed with eight different settings to get you started. There’s also a community feature on the app where other users have created their own settings for you to use if you’d like.
Unlike using a dildo or vibrator with just your hand, a sex machine gives you the option to use your hands or another toy on your clit (or other parts of your body) while being fucked. It takes masturbation to a whole new level.
I will say, it takes some adjusting. Our machine is on a stand, but it isn’t very tall, so unless I’m willing to lie on the floor, some ingenuity had to come into play. We have an old piano bench we weren’t using, which is the perfect height to rest the machine on, while I lie on the bed.
It allows me to be comfortable while getting fucked, and who doesn’t want that?
If you’re planning to use the machine (with stand) on a hardwood floor or any smooth surface, I recommend putting extra grip on the bottom bars. They come with anti-skid caps, but they don’t grip on smooth surfaces very well. When you are using the machine, you don’t want it to move (other than thrusting!) or you may end up getting fucked where you don’t want.
We added rubber grip to the bottom bars and that fixed the issue.
Pro-Tips and Tricks
the metal piece that from the dildo (quick connector) will tend to rust if you don’t dry it off well.
if you’re using a sex machines on high speed and it’s moving around add a sand-bag or a dumbbell on the base. If it’s moving because you’re on a smooth surface (not carpet) then adding rubber grip to the bottom bars helps a lot.
when you find the right angles for the positions, put marks on the stands for quicker future setup.
make sure everything is tightened down before you start the engine. Use the provided L wrench for that.
The Bottom Line
I recommend it wholeheartedly, however, no machine is great for everyone.
The biggest downside I can find is, this machine isn’t that compact - so if you care for something light and discreet, this will be overkill. But don’t worry, Hismith makes lighter, more portable machines for those who don’t need or want a heavy duty monster like this one.
For me, this sex machine with a sturdy stand is perfect. But I love that they offer other options to accommodate everyone.
For the price, this machine is well-built, easy to assemble, and a lot of fun to use. I expect to have this sex toy for a long time and get a ton of use from it.
