Wicked Wednesday: Last Tree

If I were the last tree standing…alone…would you cut me and let me fall? Would you leave me to join with the forest floor… becoming one with the earth as I desired? Or would you carry me home…carve me into something different…sand my rough edges…and polish me into something beautiful and useful for you to enjoy?

TMI Tuesday: Can We Talk…Relationships?

1. What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you see an attractive person?
Sometimes I wonder what they’re like, and if they’d be a good person to be friends with.

2. What is your idea of a dream date? Describe the person and the type of date experience.
Hmmm…well, they’d be male, good-looking and easy to talk to. I think a great date would be a stroll along the beach, hand-in-hand, followed by a swim, and then maybe a barbecue on the beach with a few drinks…and who knows what else?

3. How many serious relationships have you had? Were you in love?
I’ve had a few.  In some I’ve been in love, and in some not.

4. How many casual sexual relationships have you had?
I’ve had a few of this kind too.

5. What will ruin a relationship for you?
There’s a lot of things that can ruin a relationship – I don’t think there’s one that really tops the list for me though.

Bonus: What is your definition of sexy? Sexy is a combination of looks, brains, and attitude. A person can be the hottest looking on the planet, but if they’ve got a bad attitude, are insecure, or have rocks for brains, they’re definitely not sexy.

I Love To Cuddle

I’ve had a few OhMiBod vibrators, all of which worked with my iPod and were enjoyable to use. Now they have a line called Lovelife, which don’t use music but do have pretty designs, and they look like fun. GoodVibes recently sent me one of the new Lovelife vibrators, the Cuddle G-Spot, for free in exchange for this review.

ohboxThe Cuddle G-Spot vibrator comes nicely packaged. It has a slipcase in pink, and a cutout the size of the vibrator inside on the front of the box, through which the pink and white interlocking-heart-patterned box shows. It looks a bit strange, and reminds me of a pantyliner, which would actually make the box somewhat discreet if the back didn’t have a picture of the vibe. ohinboxThe slipcover sides have some information about the toy. The box itself is a pink and white design, and is pretty sturdy – ideal for storing the Cuddle when it’s not in use. Inside the box are the vibrator, a white satin storage bag, a USB charging cable, and an instruction manual in several languages, which includes information on the one year warranty. This vibrator only comes in pink and white, like the rest of the products in the line.  The color is nice and not too light.

ohoutofboxThis G-spot vibrator is about 6 1/2” long overall, with 4 1/2” insertable. The insertable portion is silicone, and it’s slick to the touch with very little give – what give it has is around the tip; the shaft is firm, and the toy isn’t flexible.  The head is the widest point of the Cuddle, at about 1 1/4”, and the shaft narrows as it gets closer to the base.  The shaft has a gentle curve, allowing for G-spot stimulation.

The Cuddle is rechargeable, and its charging port is located on the bottom of the white ABS plastic base. The jacked end of the charging cable is easy to insert, and the other end can be inserted into a computer’s USB port or a wall adapter. The Cuddle takes about 2 1/2 hours to fully charge, and will run for approximately 2 hours on the strongest setting (longer on lower settings). The white LED light around the control buttons will flash while the toy is charging, and will glow steady when charging is complete. It has a standby time of about 90 days, so you can charge it up and it will be ready to go when you are.

ohbasebuttonsThe control panel is located on the front of the base. Three buttons are located inside the heart-shaped control panel: a +, a -, and a ~. Holding the ~ button for three seconds turns the Cuddle on or off, and pressing it briefly during use changes the vibration and pulsation. The + and – control the strength of the seven vibrations or patterns, and there are six different levels for each. The vibrations are moderately strong, and concentrated mostly in the tip, so you can use this for clit stimulation as well. They’re pretty quiet, too, especially when the Cuddle is inserted.

The Cuddle is splashproof but not waterproof, so you won’t be able to use this in the shower or bath. It’s easy to clean with water and antibacterial soap (don’t submerge it or get water in the charging port, and just wipe the base if necessary), toy cleaner, or toy wipes. Once it’s dried thorougly, it can be stored in its satin bag or in its box, along with its charging cord.

ohinhandSo, Did It Work? I love the Cuddle. The curve and size work well for me, and it’s easy to hit my G-Spot. The vibrations are not strong enough for me to get off if I use this on my clit, but internally they’re enough. I also like that the patterns can be changed in intensity – usually these patterns are only one strength, but with the cuddle, I can set them as strong or as weak as I’d like. The charge time and run time are decent, and I like that it charges via USB. The only thing I’d change with the Cuddle would be to make this waterproof – I’d love to be able to take this with me in the tub.

Thank you to GoodVibes for sending me the Lovelife Cuddle G-Spot Vibrator for free to review! If you’d like to try the Cuddle, or the Lovelife line, you can pick one up at GoodVibes.com.
