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.

Spread A Scandal

I’ve been a fan of Cal Exotics’ Scandal line for quite a while now. I love the color combination and the variety of items that match beautifully and are functionally fun. This month, as part of their Sexpert program, I received another item in this line, the Scandal Spreader Bar, for free to review.

scandalboxThis spreader bar from Cal Exotics comes in a large box with a picture of the product in use on the front and some information on the back. Inside the box, the bar comes in pieces inside of a plastic bag and is wrapped to protect it before use. Inside the bag are a black metal bar, two covered ends, and two pins to attach them to the bar.

scandalbarswrappedThe bar, which is made of nickel-free black iron, is 15 ½” long with 8 evenly spaced holes to attach the end pieces. These pieces are just over 12” long, and have a black metal loop (which unscrews) on each end. Both pieces are covered with red and black polyester fabric which has a lacy pattern to it. The fabric is well secured to both ends and also down the seam. Each of these pieces also has a hole about 1” from the end to attach it to the bar.

scandalsetfromboxThe fabric covered pieces are attached to the black bar by 2 pins. The pins, which are also made of nickel-free iron, are about 1 ¾” long and have a 1” loop on one end.

This spreader bar is easy to assemble. Simply line up the hole on each end piece with the holes on the black bar, and slide each end onto the bar as far as desired. Once the holes line up, insert the pin all the way through to secure each end to the bar.

At its shortest, the assembled spreader bar is about 24” long, and both end pieces completely cover the inner black bar. At its longest, the bar is about 36” long and will have a 12” section of the black bar visible. The bar can be adjusted in 2” increments to achieve the desired spread. No matter what length you assemble the bar to, it’s sturdy and won’t flex or come apart. Cuffs with connectors can easily be snapped onto the loops on each end of the bar.

scandalbarshort2scandalbarlongWith the bar at its shortest, 24”, the spread will be comfortable for most. Depending on the position you’re in, the 36” spread is manageable and will leave you wide open.

The Scandal Spreader Bar is easy to clean if necessary. All parts can be wiped down with a warm, soapy cloth and wiped dry.  Since it comes apart, the bar is easy to store and takes up very little space.

So, Did It Work? I really like this spreader bar. It’s pretty, unlike many of the bars I have, and it coordinates beautifully with the rest of the Scandal line. It’s easy to adjust the width of the bar, even during use, and it can be used with any cuffs by using standard connectors to connect over the bar’s loops.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Scandal Spreader bar to review! This adjustable bar would be a good addition to anyone’s collection. If you’re interested in this bar, or other items in the Scandal line, you can pick them up at SheVibe by clicking the widget below.

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.

Melt Me

The new year is moving along nicely, and much faster than I expected. With a new year comes a new store to my site, Topco Toyz – welcome! They carry a lot of great items, and recently sent me the UltraZone Arctic Wave for free to review.

waveboxThe Arctic Wave comes in a white cardboard box, with pictures of the toy on the front and back in the color of the toy. It comes in pink, purple, and blue, and I received the blue one, which is a nice turquoise shade. Also in the box are a grey storage bag and a USB charging cable.

waveoutofboxThis is a compact vibrator, at just 5 1/2” long (measured straight up and down) – 3” of that is insertable. The shaft is slim, at just over 1” in diameter at the top and narrowing down to about 7/8” at the base, and it’s gently curved for G-spot stimulation. This vibrator is made of silicone, is firm, and the surface is slick with no drag, so you won’t have to use much lube to get the shaft slick (water-based lube is recommended). The base of the Arctic Wave has a hole large enough to insert a finger, and this helps control the toy during use.
waveinhandThe Arctic Wave is rechargeable, and uses a USB cable to charge.The charging cable connects to the Wave by 2 magnetic contacts on the back of the toy. When the connection is made and the Wave is plugged in, a light on the back of the charger flashes red to indicate charging – it glows a steady green when done.

This vibrator has just one button for control. Press and hold the button for a few seconds, and the vibrator will start up on low, steady vibrations. Additional presses of the button will cycle through the following patterns:

wavebutton– medium, steady vibrations
– high, steady vibrations
– pulses
– long pulse followed by short, fluttery pulses
– 3 strong pulses followed by 4 moderate pulses
– alternating strong and moderate pulse pattern
– strong and medium pulses
– fluttery pulses in groups of vibration
– off

You can also turn the Arctic Wave off by pressing and holding the button for a few seconds when it’s on.

wavemagnetsThe vibrations are moderate, and somewhat buzzy. They travel down the shaft well, and they aren’t felt strongly at the base. The Wave is very quiet – you will hardly hear it when it’s on, even when it’s on high.

This is a waterproof vibrator, so it’s fine to take with you into the shower or bath.

The Arctic Wave is easy to clean with antibacterial soap and water, toy cleaner, or toy wipes. It can be stored in its bag, along with its charging cord, when not in use.

waveinhandSo, Did It Work? This is a fun little vibrator. Since it’s not flexible and has a firm, round tip, it’s ideal for clitoral stimulation as well as G-spot stimulation. The vibrations are enough to bring me to orgasm, and I love that it has a hole in the base so I can control its movement with my finger. It has some good patterns, including a fluttery pulse that I hadn’t felt before, and that I really like.

Thank you to Topco Toyz for sending me the Arctic Wave for free to review! If you’re looking for a smaller vibe that works well for both G-spot and clitoral stimulation, the Arctic Wave is one to take a look at. You can pick one up at Topco Toyz by clicking on the widget below.
