It’s L18 And I Like It

It’s the beginning of December, and time to be looking for special gifts for yourself or those close to you. Always up on my list is a new vibrator, and Jopen has some exciting ones to look at. A few weeks ago I reviewed the Jopen Key Comet II, one I’d highly recommend. My first review this month is for the lovely, orgasm-inducing Lust L18 – a rabbit vibrator with all the right curves and power, which I received free from Jopen in exchange for this review.

l18boxThe L18 is part of Jopen’s Lust line, and comes in a white box with colorful circle accents. The product is pictured on the back, along with care and use information. The box has a flip-open lid with a magnetic closure, and is great for storing the toy. Inside the box is the L18 in either pink or purple (mine arrived in pink), a USB charging cord, and a small instruction booklet detailing use and care. It also has a one year warranty.

l18inboxMy Jopen L18 bubble-gum pink. It’s made of silicone with a satin finish, so it’s relatively slick and doesn’t have a lot of drag, but it does have a bit of give when you press the surface. Just a bit of lube (water-based is recommend – if you prefer silicone, do a spot test on the bottom of the base first) makes it slick and easy to insert. The L18 is waterproof, so you can play in the tub as well as in bed.

l18profileThis vibrator has a clean line, no noticeable seams, and is moderate in size. It’s just 7 3/4″ long overall, with about 4 3/4″ insertable. The head is large, and it’s gently curved with a broad surface to hit your G-spot – it’s about 2” long and 1 1/2″ in diameter. The shaft is actually quite narrow, averaging about 1” in diameter from the head to where the shaft meets the base. This shaft is flexible and will move with you.

The clitoral stimulator is 2” long and 1” in diameter. It’s firm, like the head, but flexes out easily from where it joins the base, allowing it to be easily positioned. Both the head and the clitoral arm have a motor. The motors are controlled together.

l18inhandThe L18 also features a loop on the back side of the base. The loop has a 1 1/2″ opening (about 3/4″ wide), that is ideal for inserting 1-2 fingers for better control when thrusting.

This is a rechargeable vibrator, and charges via USB. The charging port is on the bottom of the toy, and a long jack plugs into the hole. The L18 takes just 2 1/2 hours to charge, and will run for 45 minutes on high or up to 5 hours on low (being a high vibration girl, mine goes for 45-60 minutes of use). Red LED lights flash behind the buttons when charging, and glow steady when charging is complete.

The L18 is controlled by two buttons located on the front of the base. Pressing both buttons together for 4 seconds will lock or unlock the toy for use, making this easy to travel with. The top button turns the L18 on and off, and will also decrease the intensity of the motors when it’s pressed and held. The bottom button changes the vibration pattern when pressed, and when pressed and held increases the strength of the motors’ vibrations. The L18 can cycle through 5 vibration patterns (1 steady and 4 pulse patterns), and each pattern can run at the varying intensities. Red light shines behind the buttons when the L18 is in use. The vibrations are quiet, and won’t be heard over any background noise.

l18onsideSo, Did It Work? I really like the L18. I sometimes have trouble with rabbits, as so many have clit arms that are not as long as I’d like. The L18’s is long enough to hit my clit dead-on, and it’s also flexible so that I can get the right angle. The motor in the arm is strong – which for clitoral stimulation is a must for me – and it’s strong enough to get me to orgasm.

Although the shaft isn’t thick, the head is thick and hits my G-spot. The motor in the head is also strong, and the head is firm enough to get G-spot pressure.

l18headI also love that this has a loop on the back for control. There’s nothing worse than not being able to get a good grip on a vibrator, especially if I’m close to orgasm, and this makes it easy for both me and my husband to control.

The 45 minutes of use time might not sound like a lot, but I’ve found that if I’m using this completely on high that it will easily get me through 2 separate sessions before having to recharge.

The only thing that might make the L18 better, for me, would be to have separately controlled motors, so I could have steady vibrations on my clit and a pattern inside.

Thank you to Jopen for sending me the Lust L18 for free to review! If you’re looking for an elegant, powerful rabbit vibrator with a longer clit arm, the L18 is one you’ll enjoy.

Stars In My Eyes

Jopen has some fun looking products. I’ve got quite a few of their Vanity line, including the VR line, including several of the rabbits and the VR9, but I hadn’t had an opportunity to try their other toys. I was excited to receive recently the Key Comet II, a G-spot vibrator, from Jopen for free in exchange for this review.

cometouterboxThe Key Comet II from Jopen comes in blue, lavender, and pink. I received mine in blue, which is a lovely, vibrant peacock blue color. It arrived in a black box with the toy pictured on the front in its color, and information on the back. The bottom half of the box is covered by a slip-cover which, when removed, gives access to the rest of the box. It has a lift-open lid, and inside are the Comet II, a USB charging cord, a storage bag, and a small instruction sheet with how to operate the toy.

cometinfoamThis is a lovely vibrator, with its blue shaft and darker blue handle. The toy has a large, rounded head and a sweeping curve for the shaft which is accented by gentle swirling patterns.

cometinboxThe curve is pronounced, and allows the Comet II to be easily used for G-Spot stimulation. The shaft is insertable to about 5 ¼”, and it’s a smooth, slick silicone that has no drag to the surface. The head is about 1 ½” in diameter, and is the widest part of the toy.

cometinhandUsing water-based or silicone-based lube is a must to insert the Comet II, although you won’t need a lot to make it slick. The degree of the shaft’s curve makes it easy to insert once it’s been lubricated, and the head hits nicely on the G-Spot. The handle is easy to grip and maneuver the shaft and head into the position that’s most enjoyable for you.

The Comet II is rechargeable, and charges via USB connector. The back of the shaft has two magnetic contacts, and the USB cable attaches easily and securely. It takes just 4 hours to fully charge, and then the Comet II will run for 2-3 hours before needing to be charged again. It should not be charged for more than 24 hours.

This is easy to operate. On the handle at the bottom, one side has a large, flat, silver button (made of stainless-steel alloy) labeled “Key”. This is the only control cometbuttonbutton. Pressing and holding this button for 3 seconds turns the Comet II on or off. Pressing the button after the Comet II is turned on will cycle through the 7 vibration and patterned settings. The motor is located in the head, so the vibrations are concentrated where they need to be. They do travel down the shaft and into the handle but are nowhere near as strong. The vibrations are rumbly and intense, and they are also very quiet. Even if you’re using the Comet II’s head for some clitoral stimulation, you won’t need more than quiet background noise to cover the sound.

cometmagportThe Comet II is waterproof, so it’s great to use in the shower or tub. This also makes it easy to clean. It should be washed before and after use with an antibacterial soap and warm water, then thoroughly dried before storing or charging. A black lint-free bag is included for storage, or you can store the Comet II in the box it comes in.

cometchargeSo, Did It Work? I love the Comet II! It’s got a wonderful curve to it, and it’s easy to hold and manipulate against my G-Spot. The motor is located in the head, so the vibrations are strongest where I need them, and they are wonderfully strong. I also like the size and firmness of the head, as it also works well if I use the Comet II for clit stimulation. The silicone on this toy is super slick, so it just takes a bit of lube to ready it for use. The button isn’t easy to press accidentally (which is one of the worst things ever), so you won’t find yourself switching patterns by mistake.

Thank you to Jopen for sending me the Key Comet II for free to review! If you’re looking for a strong G-Spot vibrator that will make you see stars, the Key Comet II is a great choice.

Open and Alert

I really like the Scandal line from Cal Exotics. The twenty items in this collection are all stylish in red and black, and mix and match wonderfully. This month, as part of Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I received the Scandal Open Mouth Gag With Clamps for free to review.

collarboxThe Scandal Open Mouth Gag with Clamps comes in a large cardboard box, with a picture of the product on the front and back, each picture showing a different way it can be used. The back of the box also contains product information in several languages. Inside the box are the gag, clamps on chains (the chains protected by wrapping), and an extra ring for the gag.

collarinpackagingThe gag is about ¾” wide. The top half is red with black lacy overlay, while the bottom is velour-like and soft on the skin (the material is polyester). The stitching is secure all around. There are two strap pieces to the gag: the adjustable side, with 8 holes, is about 13 ½” long, and the buckle side (including the buckle) is about 13”.  With 8 The hardware on the straps is nickel-free iron, and the buckles are a nickel-free alloy.

collarclamplinksThe two straps snap around the removable gag ring. This set comes with 2 rings, one nickel-free iron, and the other rubber, both 1 ½” in diameter. The rubber ring is best if you want to be able to close your mouth or aren’t used to the hardness or size of the metal ring. A smaller ring can also be used in place of the rings provided.

With the included rings, the gag can be adjusted from about 19 ½” up to about 23 ½”, so you should be able to get a comfortable fit. Additionally, if you want to remove the gag, it can be dropped down onto the neck as a loose collar.

collarbuckleTwo small D-rings are attached to the gag about 1 ½” away from the ring. These rings are meant to attach the included chained clamps. The chains for the clamps are about 23” long, and are easy to attach and remove from the gag. The attached clamps are about 2 ¼” long, and are made of nickel-free iron. The tips are padded with phthalate free PVC, and the clamps open to about ¾”, so they will work on larger nipples.  Each clamp also has an adjustable screw to change the degree of tightness when the clamp is used.

collarclampThis set is easy to clean. The chains and clamp can be wiped or rinsed off and dried. The gag itself can be cleaned with a damp cloth if necessary, and it can also be washed in a lingerie bag on the gentle cycle in the washer and line dried. The pieces can be stored in the box, but can also easily be stored in a bag or flat in a drawer.

So, Did It Work?
This is a fun set! As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews of the Scandal line, I love the color combination – red and black, for me, is classy and erotic – as it goes with so much of the lingerie I have.  The gag is adjustable, and once we figured out the best angle, it was easy to secure in place.

collaroutofboxI love that this comes with two rings, and that other sizes of rings can be used. While I often think I have a big mouth, the metal 1 ½” ring is just a bit large for me to wear comfortably for long periods of time. Shorter periods I can do, but it’s great to have the option to use a smaller one. The rubber ring I also liked, as it let me close my mouth when I needed to, when the play wasn’t as rough.  This was easy to use as a loose-fitting collar as well, and no problem to get it back into position as a gag.

I’ve never had a gag that had attachments for anything, but being able to have the nipple clamps attached (or not, as the mood strikes) is something else I like about this set. The chains aren’t too heavy to make wearing it uncomfortable, and I particularly like that the clamps can be spread wide to accommodate my nipples – I often have trouble with clams on sets because they are too shallow or don’t open wide enough for me to use.  These were comfortable to wear for long periods of time, stimulating, and, since they’re detachable, I can use them with other collars.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Scandal Open Mouth Gag With Clamps to review! This is a great addition to the Scandal line, which includes a Hogtie Set, Collar With Leash, Bed Restraints, and many more pieces, and it’s one I’d recommend if you like open-mouth gags and also enjoy using nipple clamps.

You Get Me Closer to God

hitachiAnother early review I wrote was for the Hitachi Magic wand, now called the Original Magic Wand Vibrator, which was published with non-exclusive rights on another website. I’m reposting it here (with a few edits) because I thought it was a fun review of this often-reviewed product.

Is another review really necessary for the best invention of the 20th century? No.

Am I going to write one anyways? Yes.I don’t think enough good can be said about this wonderful, wonderful toy. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get one, but now that I have one I feel like I’ve joined the Cult of the Intense Orgasms and I’ll never go home. Keep the deprogrammers away from me!First, a little about this marvelous invention; The Hitachi, or the Original Magic Wand, comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty. It weighs about 1.25 pounds, and is somewhat bulky in appearance. It has a 9” handle, which attaches to a soft, flexible head about 2 1/2″ in diameter.

The Original Magic Wand has two speeds – 5000rpm (low) and 6000 rpm (high). Sound like a lot? It is!
A CD is between 200 – 500rpm.
DVDs are between 630 – 1530rpm.
A washing machine is between 500-2000rpm.
Your car’s engine is between 700 – 7000 rpm.

This toy is plastic, and can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap, or wiped down with isopropyl alcohol. It’s not waterproof, so be careful around water!

The Original Magic Wand actually works wonders on your sore neck, shoulders, and back. Its original use was as a massager, and it really eases tension and pain in these areas. It has a 6’ power cord, so you can plug it in almost anywhere. It’s one of the few toys I have that’s safe to leave out – the kids would never know what else it could be used for!

The instructions that come with this toy state that it shouldn’t be used longer than 25 minutes at a time. While this might seem short for a massage, it is more than long enough to achieve orgasm.

Even after reading a lot of reviews on this, I still couldn’t believe it was really so powerful. I was willing to give it a shot, though. I left my panties on, plugged it in, sat down and positioned it on my clit. I thought I’d try the low setting first.

When I turned it on, it almost brought me to my knees. It probably would have if I’d been standing up. The most intense sensation I’ve ever felt! I think it took me all of three minutes to have an incredible orgasm that brought tears to my eyes. Wow!

I had to try it on high later, and it was so intense it was scary. I usually take 20 to 30 minutes to cum with my trusty egg vibe, which is fine as it really gets me going while we’re having sex, but this was so incredible! A great and quick way to get the release I needed, and especially fast!

When my husband found it, I told him it was a back and neck massager, but he knew better (he watches too much porn). He knew exactly what it was and exactly how to use it on me. I had expected to use this as a solo toy, but my husband found it useful during our bondage play. He had me tied up and blindfolded, and then went and got this to give me some forced orgasms. I think I died and went to heaven ten times that night. It’s rather insidious to use that way, but a great addition to our kinkier play.

Although this is not my favorite vibrator for play with my partner (it takes me to orgasm too darn fast), we do use it on occasion for forced orgasm play. It works very well for that!I love to use this toy solo, when I don’t have a lot of time to get off. It consistently brings me to orgasm in 5 minutes or less, which is very fast for me. I also love to use this with attachments.We even use this sometimes for its “intended” use of back massage. I wish it was a bit quieter, but it really can’t be beat for fast clitoral orgasms. I hope it lasts forever!

If you haven’t picked this one up yet, you should! You can get one at SheVibe by clicking the widget below.

I Wand You To Wand Me

Now that February’s half over, spring must not be far behind! Regardless of the season, I love to masturbate, and my favorite way to climax is to stimulate my clit. This month, as part of Cal Exotics’ Sexpert program, I got the chance to review the Embrace Body Wand in exchange for this unbiased review.

wandboxThe Embrace Body Wand comes in a slipcovered black box. The outer cover has product information on the sides and back, as well as a picture of the wand in the color chosen (pink or grey) on the back. The box itself is sturdy, patterned black cardboard, and ideal to use for storage. Inside, the Body Wand and the USB charging cable rest in a foam bed, and a small instruction paper is included.

wandinboxThis silicone wand is almost 9” long overall, with two distinct ends. The rounded end is about 2 1/4″ wide and 1 3/4″ long, and is attached to a smaller, somewhat flexible neck. This neck is short, but it allows some movement of the head when pressing it against the clit. There’s a visible seam that runs up and over the head, but it isn’t noticeable during use. The other end, which would typically be the handle, is firm, with a gently tapered tip.

wandfullOn the body of this toy are two buttons on a silicone panel. These are surrounded by a silver plated ABS plastic area. The buttons control the motors in the wand. The Body Wand has two motors, one in each end, so you can use the end you prefer for stimulation. Both ends can be turned on at the same time, or independently of each other.

The wand comes partially charged, but should be fully charged before your first use. A full charge takes about 2 hours, and it will run about 90 minutes on a charge. The plug is long and narrow, and inserts into a small, silicone-covered hole below the buttons on the handle. Once it’s pressed firmly into the hole and plugged into your computer or a USB plug adapter, the wand’s buttons will flash with a white glow behind them to indicate the wand is charging. The lights will glow steady when fully charged.

wandchargingTo turn on the desired end, simply push the button closest to that end. The Body Wand will cycle through 7 functions: low, medium, and high vibration, followed by  pulses and patterns. The vibrations are equally strong in each end, and are fairly quiet.  To turn the Body Wand off, press and hold the corresponding button for about 3 seconds.

Being waterproof, the Body Wand can be used in the shower or tub if desired. It should be washed before and after use with soap and water, a toy cleaner, or wipes. The silicone is slick, so it can be dried off with a towel without leaving fuzz behind. It can be stored in its box, or in  a toybag if desired. Water-based lubes are recommended if necessary; if you choose to use silicone lube, do a small spot test on the underside of the handle to make sure the lube is compatible.

wandinhandSo, Did It Work?  I like this wand quite a bit, and I love that this has two different sides to it. Sometimes, I like to use the wider, more traditional rounded head when I want to stimulate more of the area around my clit.  Other times, I like to use the narrower head, and work the tip on my clit for a more intense stimulation. The vibrations are decently powerful – stronger than several other wands I’ve used, although not as clit-numbingly strong as others – and they’re enough on the high steady vibration to make me cum. I’m not big on patterns on my clit to start out with, but after an orgasm or two, the patterns – as well as the lower steady vibration speeds – are enough to keep me cumming.

wandheadsizeBeing waterproof is also great – this wand has found its way into the tub with me on several occasions since I first received it. The charging time is reasonable, and it holds its power long enough for 1 to 2 sessions.

wandsecondhead2The only tricky thing with the Body Wand, for me, was the buttons. It’s intuitive enough that the button closer to the end in use is the one to press, but I found myself sometimes pressing the wrong one when I wanted to change the patterns, and other times, when I’d be pressing this into my clit, I’d hit one or the other button by mistake.
