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.

It’s A Nose Job

There’s something about spring and rabbits – now that the weather’s turned, they’re everywhere! While I’m not crazy about the ones that run across my lawn on a daily basis, I do enjoy rabbit vibrators, and this month I was happy to receive the Embrace Massaging G-Rabbit  to review for free as part of the Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program.

calexboxfront The Massaging G-Rabbit comes in a slip-cased black box. The slip-case has a picture of the product on the back, and product information on the back and sides. The box, which is suitable for storing the rabbit, has a lift-off lid, and inside are the rabbit, USB charging cable, and a general instruction booklet (not applicable to this toy).

calexinbox This rabbit comes in purple, and it’s the nice grape shade that I’ve come to know from Cal Exotics.  It’s made of silicone, and the accents are ABS with silver plating. The silicone is smooth and soft with very little drag, and there’s just a bit of give on the head and shaft.  You’ll only need a little water-based lube during use to make the toy easy to insert.

calexaloneThe Massaging G-Rabbit is just 7” long overall (measured straight), and it has an overall gentle curve. The shaft is about 5” long and 1 1/4″ wide at its maximum, which is towards the top of the shaft.  It features 3 motors: two in the shaft and 1 in the clitoral arm.

The clitoral arm is about 2 3/4″ long and just 1” wide.  It’s shaped like a rabbit, with separate ears and a unique, pronounced nose. It’s quite flexible, so it’s easy to situate it into the right position.

calexpluginThis is a rechargeable rabbit, and it charges via the included USB cable. The jack is on the end of the toy, and it can then be charged by plugging it into a computer or USB wall adapter. A full charge takes about 2 hours, and the rabbit will run for 40 minutes on high or 50 minutes on low. The charging light will glow red when the toy is charging, and will disappear once charged.

calexbuttons2Two buttons control the Massaging G-Rabbit, and they’re located on the front of the shaft. Each button is independent, and holding  each one for 3 seconds will turn that function on or off . The bottom button controls the shaft vibration, while the top button controls the rabbit’s nose. Yes, the rabbit’s nose.

calexflexWhen the top button turns on (the light for this button will glow red), the rabbit’s nose will start to move up and down, about an inch overall. It has 3 speeds: slow, fast, and a pause/movement pattern. With the shaft turned off, it’s quite noticeable, and delightful. The bottom button glows blue during use. It features various pulsing and vibrating patterns, 7 in all, and when turned off will restart on the pattern you last used. Each pattern makes use of the two shaft motors, but none of the patterns cause the clitoral arm to vibrate much – the arm stimulates your clit by movement rather than vibration.

calexinhand2The G-Rabbit isn’t the quietest toy, but it’s not extremely loud, either. The shaft vibrations are musical, and even the noise the nose makes can be easily masked by some background music.  The vibrations are moderately powerful and are not very buzzy.

This is a waterproof rabbit, so you can take it safely into the tub. It’s also easy to clean – wash it before and after use with antibacterial soap and warm water, or use a toy cleaner or toy wipe. The box is great for storing both the rabbit and the cord, but you can also use a toy bag if you find the box is too large.


So, Did It Work?

calexinhandfrontThis is a fun rabbit.  The vibrations were strong enough to feel good inside, and I liked all of the patterns. They traveled well up and down the shaft, although I would have liked them just a bit less at the base.  The charge is sufficient for me to get to orgasm.

I liked the length of the clit arm and its flexibility – I always hate when this part is too short and I can’t position it just right.  The nose was pretty cool. It felt much different than typical clitoral vibrations, and I liked it on all 3 settings. I liked it the most, though, when the shaft was on a lower vibration pattern – it was much easier to distinctly the nose’s movement then.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me this rabbit for free to review! If you’re looking for a rabbit and want to try something other than vibrations on your clit, the Embrace Massaging G-Rabbit is a great one to check out.

Sleek Silhouette

The holiday season is upon us! With only about a month of shopping ahead, it’s time to consider buying a sex toy (or two) for that special someone in your life – maybe even yourself. This month, as part of Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I received the Silhouette S8, a flexible vibrator that’s part of the Silhouette line and that can be used alone or with a partner, for free to review.

S8boxThe Silhouette S8 from Cal Exotics comes in a white box, and is visible through the lid (it’s covered by a plastic insert). Product information is on the sides. The box has a flip-up lid, and inside the box are the vibrator, USB charging cord, general instruction manual (non-specific), and a small instruction sheet for the Silhouettes. It also has a one-year warranty.

S8InBoxThis vibrator comes in pink, red, and purple, and I received mine in pink. The color is rich and deep, and a nice change from the standard bubblegum pink color. It’s made of silicone, so it’s phthalate free and odorless. The silicone is smooth with just a bit of drag, and the seam is almost undetectable around the toy (you won’t notice it at all during use). If needed, a water-based lube will make the S8 slick and easy to insert.

S8OnSideThe S8 is about 6 1/4″ long overall, with an insertable piece that is about 3” long and about 1” wide at its widest point, with a slim, easy-to-insert tip. It tapers down to a 1/4″ neck before widening to the round clit stimulator. This stimulator is about 2” in diameter, with one side being smooth, and the other having a raised ridge down the center and smaller ridges to each side for stimulation during use.

The thin neck of the S8 is extremely flexible, and it allows you to turn and bend it into a variety of positions. This flexibility allows you to angle the insertable portion, as well as lets you situate the clit stimulator so it nestles and vibrates where you need it. Although it’s flexible, the S8 keeps its shape well during use, so you won’t find the need to readjust it often. With its flexibility and small size, the S8 can be used alone, with a dildo, or with your partner during sex. It can be worn under clothing, but since it doesn’t have a remote it’s not easy to turn off quickly that way.

S8ChargePortThis vibrator is USB rechargeable, and the plugin port is located on the end of the clit stimulator. When charging, an LED light will flash, and will glow steadily when fully charged. A full charge takes about 2 1/2 hours, and it will run for 30 to 75 minutes on a charge, depending on what intensity you use it on.

The S8 is controlled by a single button on the right side of the clit stimulator (the left side when the toy is inserted). The S8 has a travel lock feature, so you can safely pack it in a suitcase or bag without fear of it turning on. It ships with the travel lock engaged, and pressing the button 3 times quickly will unlock the toy (press it 3 times quickly when it’s unlocked to lock it again). The LED light will flash, indicating the lock feature has been engaged/disengaged.

S8ClitStimTo start the S8, press the button once. The S8 will start up on its low vibration speed. To increase the intensity, press and hold the button until it’s at the desired level. The LED light will flash faster and faster with the change in speed. To turn the S8 off, press the button again (don’t hold it down). The S8 doesn’t have patterns, but its steady vibration is fairly rumbly, and it’s quiet even on the strongest vibration. The vibrations are strongest in the insertable part, but are also nicely felt through the clit stimulator.

This vibrator is waterproof, so you can take it in the shower or tub with you. It’s also easy to clean. It should be washed before and after use with antibacterial soap and warm water (you can also use toy wipes or toy cleaner). It can be dried with a soft cloth, and stored in its box or in a toy bag.

So, Did It Work?
S8InHandI like the Silhouette S8. Used alone, it’s not big internally, but it stays in place well and I can feel the vibrations internally and clitorally. I like the size of the clit stimulator, and I can bend the S8 so it hits my clit right where I want it. It also works well with smaller dildos to add a feeling of fullness and some vibrations, and it’s great to use with a partner.

Although the S8 doesn’t have a variety of patterns, I didn’t think this detracted from it at all, as I tend to use most toys on a steady vibration unless there’s a pattern that I really get off on. I like that the button turns the S8 off quickly – the only thing that’s tricky with the button is trying to change the setting during use. You won’t find yourself hitting the button by mistake, but if you’re trying to change the intensity it can be tricky to press and hold, particularly if your fingers are slippery.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Silhouette S8 for free as part of their Sexpert program! If you like hands-free vibrators that can be used with a partner during sex, or even alone, the Silhouette S8 is a great choice. You can pick up the S8, or other toys in the Silhouette line, at SheVibe by clicking the widget below.

Rabbit Rabbit

Fall is here, and things are changing – and finally getting less hectic. It’s been a while since I’ve had the fun of reviewing a CalExotics product, and given my propensity for rabbit vibrators, I was excited to receive the Jack Rabbit for free to review.

rabbitbox
The Jack Rabbit comes in a clear clamshell case, with the toy visible through the front, and an insert with product information behind it. This toy is available in 3 colors: pink, blue, and purple, and I received mine in pink, which is a light, bubble-gum color. The case is easy to open, and contains the vibrator, USB charging cable, and an instruction sheet.

rabbitoutofbox
This rabbit vibrator is made of silicone (with the exception of the base, which is ABS with a PU cote, and the decor, which is sliver plated ABS), and it’s odor and phthalate free. The silicone is soft and smooth, and has no drag to the touch. rabbitheadThere is some give down the shaft, due to the silicone being loose over the inner workings of the toy – this also makes the shaft a bit flexible for better positioning. The shaft is gently curved and about 5 1/2” long, with a maximum 1 1/4” diameter, and even with its rounded head is easy to insert.

The clit arm is shaped like a rabbit, with nubbed nose and ears that are joined. It’s 2 1/2” long and about 1” wide, so it nestles comfortably against the clit when the shaft is inserted.

rabbitchargingportRechargeable toys are always a plus, and the Jack Rabbit is charged via the included USB cable. The jack slips into the charging port on the back side of the toy, and the other end can be connected to your computer’s USB port, or to a wall adapter. LED lights under the silicone backlight the buttons in a flashing pattern while the toy is charging – the lights will glow steadily when charging is complete, which will take rabbitbuttonslita maximum of 3 hours, depending on the charge remaining in the Jack Rabbit when it’s plugged in. Once fully charged, this rabbit will run for 3 1/2 hours on high settings, and up to 6 hours on the low settings.

The Jack Rabbit has 3 motors: 1 in the tip, one towards the bottom of the shaft, and one in the clit arm. These 3 motors aren’t controlled separately, but work together in the Jack Rabbit’s patterns.

rabbitbuttonsThe front panel has 3 control buttons, which are silicone and easy to press. The middle button is a dedicated on/off button, so you can turn the Jack Rabbit off quickly if necessary. Pressing this button once turns the toy on and backlights the buttons, but doesn’t power up the motors. The top button is the pattern button, and each press cycles between the following patterns:

- moderate steady vibration in all three motors
- steady, long vibration in the shaft, followed by 4 pulses in the clit arm
- 3 medium-long vibrations in the shaft, followed by 3 short pulses in the clit arm
-long vibration in the shaft, 5 short vibrations in the lower shaft, then 3 long vibrations in the clit arm
- reverberation up the shaft 2 times, then clit arm revs down once
- shaft tip and clit arm rev up twice, then lower shaft revs down
- clit arm revs up twice, then the top of the shaft revs down

rabbitinhand2When the Jack Rabbit is turned off and then back off, it starts at the first setting. So what do you do if you like another setting better? This is what the bottom button is for. This button is marked R, and is easy to use. Once you’re on the setting you like, press and hold the R button for about 3 seconds – it will rapidly flash – and this will set the pattern. Now, you can turn on the Jack Rabbit and press R, and it will immediately go back to the setting you stored. If you change your mind at some point and want to store another pattern, simply go to that pattern and hold the button down for 3 seconds.

The vibrations are moderately strong in the modes, and are more throbby than buzzy. The different patterns are almost musical, and the shaft motors are loud if the Jack Rabbit isn’t inserted (they’re not entirely silent when it is inserted, but they’re definitely a lot quieter), but they won’t be heard with some background noise or music on.

This vibrator is waterproof, so it’s great to take into the tub with you. Being waterproof also makes it easy to clean before and after use with some antibacterial soap and warm water.

rabbitflexSo, Did It Work? The Jack Rabbit has a lot going for it. The size of the shaft is great, the silicone has a great feel, and the slight curve makes it easy to insert. The clit arm is long enough for me to have the vibrations hit where I want them to. I love the idea of a memory button – it’s a rare thing that I like the first vibration pattern, and this way I can go right to the setting I want to use. The vibrations aren’t overwhelmingly strong, but they’re strong enough to get me going, and ultimately get me to orgasm. Plus, this is rechargeable and has a long running time, which is good for those marathon sessions.

The only thing I would change about the Jack Rabbit is the vibrations for the clit arm. While I like pulses internally quite a bit, I prefer steady vibrations on my clit – and only the first setting has the steady vibrations. I would love to have been able to control the clit vibrations separately, and pair those steady vibrations with the different shaft patterns.

Thank you to CalExotics for sending me the Jack Rabbit to review! If you’re looking for a rabbit vibrator with a moderately sized shaft and multiple vibration patterns, that’s rechargeable and has a memory for your favorite setting, and you don’t need constant steady vibration on your clit, this is a good rabbit vibrator to look at.

The Ferrari stopped and the tinted window opened to reveal…

brown, wavy hair ruffled by the breeze…

a little bit of forehead, as tan as you please…

black mirrored glasses reflecting in the light…

a long and narrow nose with just a curve to the right…

lips that were smiling, a glint of pearly teeth…

to round out this handsome face a shaven chin beneath…

he beckoned me to enter, I climbed in for a ride…

the hot leather on my legs was matched by that inside…

as he drove I sucked his cock, his hand was in my hair…

I swallowed and laid back while his fingers drifted there…

I came as he was shifting, his fingers flitting fast…

the street signs whizzing past…

I wanted it to last…

and last…

and last…
