Review: Magic Wand Rechargeable

Magic Wand RechargeableTell Me How You Really Feel

The first time I used the Magic Wand Rechargeable, I hated it. It felt like it was epilating my vulva. The second time, I used it through underwear and had a head-sweating, “excuse me while I just sit here in awe” orgasm. The third time, I felt like a human water feature as the MWR sputtered lube and vaginal juices around like a sad fountain. Years of being committed to small, pin-point vibes definitely left me with a learning curve, but I eventually figured out how I get maximum pleasure from the MWR.

Review: L’Amourose Rosa


Tell Me How You Really Feel
So many new “luxury” sex toy products make me roll my eyes so hard that I can see my own sarcastic thoughts, so the solid quality and design of the Rosa is refreshing. On top of that, there’s a reason the Rosa is on my favorites list: the Rosa has the most rumbly vibrations I’ve ever felt, and a curve that fits my picky g-spot.

The Basics
Materials: silicone and ABS
Colors: black, pink, green
Total length: 6″
Insertable length: 4.5″
Largest diameter: 1.5″
Smallest diameter: 1″
Base Diameter: 2 x 3.25″

The Good, The Bad, And The Strap-On Possibilites
The L’Amourose Rosa is one of the few internal toys I use vaginally that I don’t need/ want to vigorously thrust. The vibrations are so strong and rumbly, and the firm head is so fitting to my g-spot that my vag feels like, “Rosa, take the wheel!” Really, these vibrations are powerful and thumping, and it astounds me every time I use it.

The Rosa’s vibrations start fairly low, but the rumble makes them feel more intense and penetrating than more buzzy vibes. As you increase the intensity, the rumble sticks around, unlike some other vibes that get much buzzier as you up the power. The rumble isn’t stealth though, it has a familiar hum. The sound dampens considerably when inserted, but it’s still a bit louder than other luxury vibes like the LELO Mona 2.

Quickie Review: Tantus Echo Vibrating Dildo

This is a mini review to accompany my rope harness tutorial, where you can watch me tie up the Echo in a beautiful strap-on made of rope!
———–

 Material: 100% Silicone
Included: 3-Speed Tantus Bullet
Insertable length: 6.5″
Total length: 7.5″
Shaft diameter: 1.5″
Base Diameter: 2.625″
Descriptors: Non realistic, highly textured, harness compatible, anal safe

I’ve had the Tantus Echo for over a year now and it’s been a turbulent journey of rejection, desire, denial, and acceptance. It’s the dildo of my vaginal soap opera. You don’t need to know the full history of my torrid feels for the Echo, but I will tell you that it started with a scorn pubic bone, but I have gradually grown to appreciate the succession of firm silicone ridges.

Review: Tantus Panty Play

purple silicone vibrator on yellow pillowTell Me How You Really Feel
I had high aspirations for the Tantus Panty Play: this would be a top drawer toy, a staple for strap-on play, hands-free orgasms galore! It’s sad how dreams work sometimes though- good in my mind, but not so great pressed against my vulva.

measurements for Tantus Panty Play vibratorThe Basics
Material: Silicone
Vibrator Functions: 3 speeds
(two steady, one pattern)
Length (including bullet vibe): 5.5″
Length (w/o bullet vibe): 5″
Total Height: 2″

The Good, The Bad, And The “Am I Wearing This Correctly?”
The Panty Play is a silicone vibrator intended to spoon the vulva so it can be worn in underwear or beneath clothes for a portable “LOOK, NO HANDS!” experience. It comes with a 3-speed waterproof bullet vibe. Like all Tantus bullets, it’s moderately strong and the vibrations travel through the silicone well. If you need a lot of power, it likely isn’t enough though. The Panty Play stays in place surprisingly well even when moving around, and it flexes with the curves of the body [vulva spooning achieved!], which makes it comfortable to wear. However, the Panty Play is not a stealth machine: the bullet vibe makes it look like I have a bionic super-clit, which is cool, but highly noticeable in underwear and tight fitting pants. This means it’s not the most discreet panty vibe if you’re looking for something to wear out.

Review: LELO Mona 2

LELO Mona 2 vibrator Tell Me How You Really Feel
For me, the LELO Mona 2 is a plot twist of a sex toy: it’s considered by many to be the holy grail of vibrators but PLOT TWIST I hated it, then PLOT TWIST I changed my mind. Really, I had half of a sassy review written about the Mona when my vulva started to understand what the hype is about… not without some residual skepticism though.

The Good, The Bad, and The Plot Twist
I was so damn excited when I finally got my hands on the Mona 2: it’s beautifully shaped, made of silky, soft silicone, and it has some seriously strong vibrations. I was turned on just holding it in my hand! Not to mention, the Mona is one of the most praised sex toys on the market, as if it were a vibrator crafted by the Gods and then stolen by some sex toy Prometheus to be bestowed upon us mortals. So, I was about 300 percent ready to get up on the Mona 2. Unfortunately, when I did, I had a series of bad experiences that led me to banish it to the box it came in, assuming I would never use it again. I’m not talking about mere dissatisfaction, I’m talking pain and discomfort driven disdain.

Prime Example: The time I thought I would need the assistance of the jaws of life to remove the Mona from my body… I was wearing a butt plug and as I was wiggling the Mona around to (unsuccessfully) find a comfortable position in my vagina, I turned it to the side, which somehow locked it into it’s position. I then spent a lovely minute painfully turning the Mona to undo whatever grave misstep I had taken. I don’t know exactly what happened and I refuse to attempt to recreate the situation, but ever since, I look at the Mona very wearily.

LELO Mona 2 vibrator evilSo, that was one freak incident I’m fairly sure was caused by a sex toy poltergeist that got lost on it’s way to possess a gross jelly dong. But all the other times I tried the Mona were less than pleasant too: internally, the shape was awkward and at times, painful if I moved pretty much at all, and when I would amp up the vibrations, they reached such a high frequency that I winced at the thought of pushing the “+” button. I kept submitting myself to this because I thought there must be some key to operating the Mona in a way that didn’t make me want to encase its control panel in cement and drop it in the ocean.

LELO Mona 2 vibratorEventually though, I admitted my defeat, officiated our break up with a Twitter status, and packed the Mona away to never come near my vulva again. Fortunately, that plan was abandoned during a masturbation session when the vibrations of my We-Vibe Tango faded to a dying grumble. I was in between apartments and the first vibe I found when rummaging through boxes in a fit of sexual frustration was the Mona. My desperation acted as momentary forgiveness of it’s past offenses and I was shocked to receive a pleasurable orgasm by using the Mona clitorally on a lower speed. After that, I started to gain back faith in the Mona as I used it more and more, and now I’m able to see what works and what doesn’t for me.

So, while my g-spot is not Mona compatible and I have to stay within a vibration sweet spot or risk feeling like I’m having a cavity drilled between my thighs, there are some things the Mona gets very right:

1. The design is on point: all body safe materials, rechargeable, waterproof, and easy to clean. You can’t really go wrong with those things, so sex toy brownie points to LELO for that.LELO Mona 2 vibrator controls

2. These controls speak to my soul. The buttons are easy to find, and since the pattern buttons and speed buttons are separate, I can pretend that I live in a magical place where my orgasms are never interrupted by zztzztzzt ztztztztztztztztzt zzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzz… when I press the increase button one too many times.

3. This is some sexy silicone. It’s really supple, has hardly any drag, and I get hot just thinking about all the hair I don’t have to pick/wash off every time I want to use it.

4. The shape of the head of the Mona fits perfectly on the side of my clitoris… the right side to be specific [that’s my good side FYI]. So there’s no awkward finagling or slipping like I experience with a lot of other vibes.

6. Lastly, is my favorite way to use the Mona: holding the entirety of the toy against my vulva so that the larger portion is resting at my vaginal opening and the thinner portion is against my clitoris. It’s like the Mona is spooning with my vulva [awwwwww]. Couple that with some grinding and a dildo inserted vaginally and I pretty much forget all the times the Mona has wronged me [at least for a few minutes].

Closing Statement
For a vibrator that turned my vagina into a sex toy deadbolt, I’m pretty impressed that the LELO Mona 2 has made its way from a box in my closet to top drawer status next to my bed. I’ve called myself a middle of the road Mona user, and that’s pretty accurate. I’m neither in love with nor (any longer) in hate with the Mona… sometimes it’s frustrating and uncomfortable but other times it’s everything I want. Basically, the Mona is one conflicting motherfucker, like the frenemy of my sex toy collection. *Cue “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” by the Backstreet Boys*

If you want to experience what all the talk is about or wish to (in the name of  paranormal research) recreate my butt plug mishap, you can get the LELO Mona 2 at SheVibe or GoodVibes.


I no longer support LELO due to stunts like this misogynistic cock ring and a partnership with a known abuser, among their many other offenses.

If you are looking for a powerful vibrator that can offer g-spot stimulation, try these options from companies that have proven to be far less shitty: the L’amourose Prism V, the Swan Wand, or the We-Vibe Rave, all of which cost less than the Mona 2!
