How Deep Is Beauty?

I love Jopen toys. While my favorite line is the Vanity line, I’ve enjoyed vibrators from their Key, Lust, and Envy lines as well. This year, one of the new lines Jopen introduced was Callie, and I received Jopen’s Callie Dual Massager Vibrator (part of the new Callie line) from Good Vibrations for free to review.

rabbitinboxThe Callie Dual Massager Vibrator, which is a rabbit style, comes in a white and gold box, with the toy visible through the front and product information on the back. Inside the box are the toy, USB charging cable, and general information booklet. The box is fine for storing the toy and charging cable together, or you can use a toybag. You will want to keep the cable with this one.

This rabbit-style vibrator is made of a creamy white silicone, and it’s quite pretty. The silicone is smooth with very little drag. The toy is about 7 3/4” long overall, and the shaft rabbitinhandis 6 “ insertable. It has a tapered tip for easy insertion (you’ll want to use your favorite water-based lube), and at its widest is 1 3/4” in diameter. The clit stimulator is about 2” long and 3/4” wide. It’s flexible, and easy to position.  Both the tip of the shaft and the clit stimulator have motors in them.

rabbitchargeportThe charging port for this vibrator is hidden, but easy to access. The gold base (made of ABS plastic with metallic plating) can be twisted open to access the port. Unlike other USB chargeable toys that I have, this uses a rabbitpluggedinmicro-USB to USB connection, with the micro-USB port inside the base. It takes about 2 hours to charge the vibrator (it will glow red while charging), and it will run for about 50 minutes on high or 1 1/2 hours on low when fully charged.

The bottom of the base has a large acrylic gemstone button to control the basic functions of the toy. Pressing and holding the button for about 3 seconds will turn the vibrator on or off. Once on, pressing the button will cycle through 7 functions of steady vibrations, pulsation patterns,and escalation patterns.

rabbitbaseEach function of this vibrator has 5 intensities from low to high. Instead of more buttons, however, the controls for changing the intensity are located on one side of the toy, right above the base. The controls are a “+” and a “-“, and they are indented into the material.  The indentations are tricky to locate when you have the vibrator inserted; you can squeeze both sides to increase or decrease the intensity.

rabbitbuttonsThis vibrator is quite strong on the high settings, and somewhat loud – you’ll want to have some background music on to hide the sound. It’s completely waterproof, so you can take it into the tub and play.

Like all silicone, waterproof toys, this is easy to clean with antibacterial soap and water, toy cleaner, or wipes. You can store this in its box, or in a toy bag.

rabbitflexSo, Did It Work? The Callie Dual Massager Vibrator has some good points.  The motors in both the shaft and clit stimulator are strong and well placed (although I don’t think they’re quite aa strong as the Vanity line). The clit arm is long, and flexible, and is easy to position where I need it. I like the simplicity of the single button for controlling the vibration pattern as well as the on/off, and I like several of the vibration patterns.

I have mixed feelings about the charging port location. I’m not crazy about having to remove the base to get to the port (because I lose things), although this probably makes the port more waterproof than otherwise.

rabbittipWhat I’m least fond of are the “+” and “-“ for controlling the speed. Because they’re indented and not raised, they’re hard to find – almost impossible for me to actually feel – when using this toy. I can squeeze around the base, but it’s tricky when I’ve got this vibrator inserted, and soemtimes I squeeze too high or too low and change the speed the direction I don’t want to go.

Squeeze For A Cause

Last month, Cal Exotics announced Inspire, a new line of products created to support Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a non-profit organization. Proceeds from the Inspire line are being donated to support this group, and products in the Inspire line include wands, teasers, a dilator kit, breast massager, and kegel exercisers. In addition to the Vibrating Ultimate Wand, which I reviewed recently, I also received the Vibrating Remote Kegel Exerciser for free to review.  Why exercise your kegels? Doing kegel exercises strengthens pelvic control, and they’re easy to do. They’re fun to do, too, with an exerciser.

kegelinboxThe Vibrating Remote Kegel Exerciser from Cal Exotics comes in a clear plastic box, with the toy and remote both visible. The box sits inside a cardboard bottom box, which has product information on the sides and back. Inside the box are the egg with retrieval cord, its remote, a USB charging cord, R&TTE (European compliance) statement card, general instructions for Cal Exotics’ toys, and instructions for this toy’s use.

kegeloutofboxLike all products in the Inspire line, the Kegel Exerciser is a pretty, pale bubblegum pink. The insertable exerciser is covered with s smooth, soft silicone, and is waterproof, while the remote is ABS plastic with a PU cote.

kegelinhandThe egg-shaped exerciser is about 7 1/2” long overall, including the cord (the body is about 3” long). The cord is silicone, and part of the body, so it’s easier to clean than other insertables. It’s somewhat stretchy, and easy to remove the exerciser with.

The egg itself is about 1 1/2” in diameter. The silicone has some give, and the tip of the toy is tapered, and also squishy. It’s very easy to insert (you’ll want to use a bit of water-based lubricant), and stays in place where you put it. It has a button towards the lower half of the egg, which must pressed to turn the exerciser on – not vibrating, but ready to receive signals from the remote.  It can also be inserted and used without any vibration, or you can set the vibration speed without the remote by pressing and holding the button for 2 seconds, then pressing it to cycle through the functions (pressing for 2 seconds will turn it off). The exerciser is rechargeable, and the charging port is on the opposite side of the egg.

remoteinhandThe remote is about 3” long and 1 1/2” wide, and it’s small and easy to hold. One of the coolest things about the remote is that it is rechargeable too! If there’s one thing I find annoying with remote-controlled toys, it’s that that remotes usually take an odd-sized battery, and it always dies at an inopportune time. The charging port is on the end, and the USB charging cable provided has 2 jacks, so both the remote and exerciser can be charged at the same time. This is awesome!  It takes about 2 1/2 hours for a full charge, and then the exerciser will run for 30 minutes on high, and 1 1/2 hours on low.

The remote has 3 buttons on the front to control the exerciser. Once you’ve pressed the button on the egg and inserted it, you can turn it on by pressing the middle button and holding it for 2 seconds. The top and bottom buttons will cycle through the patterns – there are 10 in all, including steady vibration, pulsing patterns, and escalations – either forwards or backwards. This is great, as you can easily go back to the pattern you like if you pass it without having to go through all of them. You can increase the vibration speed by pressing and holding the top button (on the opposite end of the charging port), and decrease it by pressing and holding the bottom button. You can turn off the exerciser by pressing the middle button for 2 seconds. The remote has a range of about 16 feet.

kegelcharge2The vibrations are moderately strong and more on the buzzy side. They’re very quiet, so you can use the exerciser pretty much anywhere with no one being the wiser.

This is easy to clean (warm water and antibacterial soap, or a toy cleaner), and also easy to store – it’s best to store in a toybag with the remote and charging cord.

So, Did It Work? This is a fun exerciser! I love vibrating eggs, and this one is quiet, decently strong, makes me want to squeeze my kegels, and has a great variety of functions. I like that the retrieval cord is part of the egg and silicone. The remote buttons are pretty cool – being able to cycle back and forth makes it easier to find the pattern I want to use. And what I really love is that the remote is rechargeable – and can be charged with the exerciser. No more digging for N or watch batteries when the remote dies.

Ultimately Satisfying

Summer is upon us, and it’s a great time to try out new sex toys! In May, Cal Exotics announced a new line of products called Inspire, which they created to support the non-profit organization called Living Beyond Breast Cancer. They are also donating proceeds from the items in this line to this organization. It’s a great cause, and a great way to help support this organization!  Inspire products include a Breast Massager, Kegel exercisers and trainers, wands, a teaser, and a dilator kit, and I received the Vibrating Ultimate Wand (in addition to the Kegel Exerciser, which I will be reviewing later) to for free to review.

wandinboxThe Inspire Vibrating Ultimate Wand comes in a clear plastic box, with a bottom white and pink cardboard 1/2 box that it sits inside. white The toy is visible through the clear upper half of the box, and product information is included on the back of the box bottom. Inside the box are the wand, a USB charging cable, a general instruction booklet, and an information sheet about products in the Inspire line.

wandoutofboxThis wand comes in pale pink, and it’s a nice, pale, bubble gum color. The entire wand is covered in this pink silicone (even the neck area), and it has just a bit of give all over its surface. The wand is what I’d call medium-sized, at 8 1/2” long. The head size is about 1 3/4” in diameter, so it’s nice and big, and easy to position to cover your clit and surrounding areas.

The Ultimate Wand is rechargeable, and the charge port is located on the bottom of the wand’s handle. It takes 2 1/2 hours to completely charge, and the wand should be charged before the first use.

wandinhandThe wand is controlled by two buttons. The top button is the on/off button, and the bottom button cycles through the patterns. This also has a locking feature, making it great for traveling. To unlock, press and hold the top button for 2 seconds – red LED lights under the buttons will flash. Then, pressing and releasing the top button will turn the wand on. Pressing the bottom button will cycle through 10 patterns, which include 3 steady vibration modes, and 7 pulse patterns. To turn the wand off, press the top button once.  To lock the wand, once it’s off, press and hold the top button for 2 seconds – the lights will flash, letting you know it’s locked.

This wand runs for about 1 1/2 hours on high speed, and about 3 hours on low speed. The vibrations are pretty rumbly, and they’re quite strong, but also fairly quiet – any background noise will mute the fact that you’re using this. The Ultimate Wand is waterproof, so it’s great to take into the shower or tub. You can use water-based lube if necessary.

wandheadsizeSince it’s waterproof, and also since it’s covered in silicone, the Ultimate Wand is easy to clean – you can use antibacterial soap and warm water, a toy cleaner, or wipes. It can be stored with its charging cable in a toy bag or box (the box it comes in isn’t ideal for storage).

So, Did It Work? I really love this wand. One thing that always drives me nuts with wand vibrators is that the head where it joins the toy’s neck always has access for water, making it unusable in the tub and also making it more difficult to clean. The Ultimate Wand doesn’t have this head/neck separation – it’s nice and smooth, and covered with silicone, so there’s wandchargeportno worry cleaning that water will get in, plus it’s now good for water play. I like that it has the locking feature, which many of the wands I have do not. And I love the vibrations! They’re strong, pretty rumbly, and there’s a variety of patterns that I really enjoy. The running time is enough for a session or two, and it doesn’t take too long to recharge, which is another plus. The only improvement would be for a storage bag to be included, as the box really isn’t a good way to store this.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Inspire Vibrating Ultimate Wand for free to review! If you like strong wand vibrators that are rechargeable, and enjoy silicone toys that you can use in or out of the water, this is definitely one to check out! Plus, it’s a great way to support the Living Beyond Breast Cancer organization. You can pick up an Ultimate Wand of your own at SheVibe by clicking on the widget below.

Sexy Summer Schooling

I like to use vibrators on my clit, whether I’m masturbating or having sex. During sex I prefer hands-free vibrators, as it frees up my hands for other play. I’d been looking to try a new hands-free vibrator for a while, so I was thrilled when Topco Toyz sent me the UltraZone Sexy U for free to review this month!

topcoboxThe UltraZone Sexy U comes in a white box, with a picture of the toy on the front and back in the color it comes in, as well as product information on the back. Inside the box are the toy, it’s remote, two USB chargers (a jacked one for the toy and a magnetic one for the remote), and a bag to use for storage. This is available in 2 colors – pink and purple – and I received mine in purple.
topcoboxcontentsThis vibrator is made of silicone, and it’s smooth to the touch with a bit of give.The toy itself is about 7” long (and about 7/8” wide at its widest), measured from one end to the other around the outside curve. Either end is insertable, and topcoflex2the insertable length is about 3”. The vibrations are in the arm where the on/off button is located. If this side is inserted, there’s a bit of a G-spot nub for stimulation and the vibrations will be concentrated on your clit. You will need to turn the toy on before inserting, but it can be turned on and the intensity set on the lowest setting to make this easier.

If you insert this the other way, the vibrations are mainly internal, and the toy will stimulate your clit primarily through pressure and rubbing. The Sexy U is flexible, and it needs just a bit of lube to make it slide in effortlessly. The charging port is located on the same end of the toy as the button for turning the Sexy U on.

topcoremote2Because of its small size, the Sexy U can be used during intercourse, or with another toy inserted. It can also be used alone and can be worn under clothing. The size and shape keep the Sexy U in place no matter how you choose to use it.

The Sexy U is controlled by a small remote that’s about 2 3/4” long and 1 1/2” wide. It has a silver loop on one end that can go around your finger, and it also helps keep straight which is the top and which is the bottom. The back side has 2 metal circles that connect to the USB charger, and the front has 3 buttons for controlling the vibrator.

topcoremotefrontBefore the remote can be used, the toy must be turned on by pressing the small, raised button on one end. After pressing and holding this button for about 3 seconds, the Sexy U will turn on. Now the remote can be used to change the pattern and intensity of the vibrations.

The middle button on the remote cycles through 9 patterns, including steady vibrations and pulse patterns. The vibrations can be decreased by pressing the top button (closest to the silver loop), and increased by pressing the bottom button. On the lowest speed setting the vibrationtopcohargers are very subtle, and on the highest setting the vibrations are quite strong, and mostly buzzy. They feel stronger when the vibrating end is inserted, and not quite as strong when this end is used on the clit. The toy can be turned off by pressing the middle button on the remote and holding it for 3 seconds. Even on the high settings, the Sexy U is fairly quiet, and background noise will mask any sound it makes.

topcocharger2This toy is waterproof, so you can enjoy it in the shower or tub. It’s also easy to clean – both pieces can be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap, or a toy cleaner can be used. The charging connectors on the remote should be wiped dry before connecting to the charging cable.

So, Did It Work? The Sexy U has some good things going for it. I like the shape, and how easily it stays in place, whether I’m using it alone, or with another toy or my partner. It’s easy to insert, and easy to use, and I like how each pattern can be increased or decreased to the strength I want. I love that the remote is rechargeable – this is one of my biggest issues with other remote-controlled toys, as the remote typically takes a weird size battery, and it runs out when I need it most. With the Sexy U, I can charge both the toy and remote together, so I won’t be without a way to control it.

topcoinhandI didn’t like that I couldn’t turn the toy on from the remote – only off. I’d rather be able to do both without having to find the button on the Sexy U. I also would have preferred to have two vibrating ends on the toy and not just one. The vibrations felt great inside, but my clit was wanting its share of vibrations, and the silicone doesn’t transmit the vibrations as much as I’d like. Flipped around, the vibrations were good on my clit, but if they were on both ends it would be much better.

Thank you to Topco Toyz for sending me the UltraZone Sexy U to review! If you like hands-free toys that can be used alone or with a partner, want to use a remote to control the vibrations and the ability to change the vibration strength, the Sexy U is one to look at.

Shake It Up!

I love anal toys, but other than a tail or two, it’s been a while since I’ve tried a new one. I especially like vibrating ones, and so I was thrilled to receive the Silhouette S5 vibrating plug from Cal Exotics for free as part of their Sexpert program.

S5BoxThe Silhouette S5 comes in 3 colors: pink, red, and purple, and I received mine in purple. It comes in a gray and white box accented with the toy color. The toy is visible through the front of the box, and the box opens magnetically from both sides. Information about the toy is on the sides of the box. Inside, resting on foam, is the S5 and a USB charging cord. Also included in the box is a general instruction booklet for Cal Exotics battery toys and a sheet with information on the S5 as well as other toys in the Silhouette line.

S5inboxThis toy is made of silicone, and it’s smooth with very little drag. It’s not hard – the silicone has some give when you press on it. The S5 is 4” long overall, and it’s 1 ¼” wide at its widest. The neck narrows down to about ¾” in diameter, and then the toy flares out to a 2 ¼” diameter base. With the narrow neck, the S5 stays securely in place, and even though the base is wide, it can be worn under clothing if desired.  It has a rounded tip for easier insertion, and is both flexible and comfortable to wear.

S5aloneThe S5 is USB rechargeable, and charges in about 2 ½ hours. Once fully charged, it will run for about 50 minutes on high, and up to 3 ½ hours on low.

This vibrator has two buttons for control, located on the underside of the base. The button closest to the inside will turn the S5 on, and will also turn it off. The button closest to the outside cycles through the S5’s functions. Pressing and holding the outside button will increase the vibration strength, and pressing and holding the inside button will decrease it. The functions can be changed without changing the vibration speed. The vibrations are easy to press during use.

S5ButtonsThe S5 always starts on the first function, and on low vibration.  The functions are steady vibrations, fluttery pulses, long pulses, and long/short pulse patterns. The vibrations are rumbly, strong, and fairly quiet, and they travel well all through the toy.

There is also a locking feature, which is great for traveling. To unlock it, just press both buttons for 1-2 seconds. Both LED lights will come on. To lock it, press both buttons 1-2 seconds – the LED lights will go off. The S5 comes locked, and it automatically locks when it’s removed from the charger.

This anal vibrator is waterproof, and it’s also easy to clean with antibacterial soap and warm water.  It can be stored in its box or in a toybag with its charger.

S5inhandSo, Did It Work? This is a great anal vibrator! It’s a good size for me, and I like how it feels when I have it inserted.  Unlike some of the anal toys I have, it has some flex to it, making it comfortable to wear.  I also like the button placement, as they’re easy to find and press.

Where this really excels is in the intensity and functions. I like that each pattern can be set from low to high. The patterns themselves are good – I like patterns better anally than straight vibrations – and I really like being able to adjust their strength from low to high during use. This can get me off by itself, without any other vibes, which makes it awesome.
