Product Review – We-Vibe Rave

I absolutely love G-Spot stimulation. That is why I was very excited to try the We-Vibe Rave from the awesome folks at Betty’s Toy Box. I received this toy free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. The Rave is a rechargeable vibrating G-Spot dildo that can be controlled via buttons on the toy and/or smartphone app called “We-Connect.” The app is neat because you can connect to a partner or control it yourself.

Packaging

The We-Vibe Rave comes with USB charging cord, satin drawstring pouch, instruction booklet, and a sample lube packet by Pjur. The Rave is unfortunately not waterproof, but it is Splash proof.

The App

Downloading the free “We-Connect” app will give both you and your partner control of the Rave. The app allows you to use the pre-programmed settings or make your own. There are also three different chat functions to allow you to communicate with your partner: text chat, video chat, and voice chat. The boyfriend and I had a blast playing with all the different app settings. The connection is pretty clear for all three chat settings. However I am not sure if it was a bug at the moment, or if it was something wrong with my Bluetooth connection, but I had to keep my phone right next to the Rave to stay in control during solo play. I preferred the app over the buttons on the toy to control because I found the toy hard to press to change settings. The downfall to the phone (at the time) was spotty Bluetooth connection and getting lube and other juices on my phone.

The Toy

The Rave is made with the always amazing We-Vibe vibrations. It gives off strong, deep, and rumbly vibes. It is quiet, and easily muffled by blankets and/or pillows. Unfortunately it did not hit my G-Spot the way I liked. It wasn’t uncomfortable, in fact the toy itself felt nice, but I just didn’t feel like my G-spot was stimulated. The Rave is 7.6″ long and its widest point is 1.22.” It is made from 100% silicone that is velvety smooth.

Overall

Overall, the Rave is a great toy. Unfortunately it just didn’t hit my G-Spot the way that it was designed. It is still a wonderful toy, and it will still be used for fun, especially if my relationship goes long distance (which is a huge possibility). My partner and I had a blast with the app and its many different features and settings, nonetheless. I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars. You can get your own at Betty’s Toy Box. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box!

Product Review – Club Vibe 3.Oh

I am always on a hunt for the perfect wireless vibrator and jumped at the chance to review the Club Vibe 3.Oh for Good Vibes. I received this item free in exchange for my honest review.

Packaging: The Club Vibe 3.Oh comes with a USB charging cord, a small black satin storage bag, a One-Size thong, and a rechargeable remote with a wireless vibrator. The satin bag has enough room to fit the vibrator, remote, and thong comfortably. Adding the charging cord will make for a very tight fit, but it will fit. The thong has a sewn in pouch that holds to vibrator.

The Toy: The Club Vibe is a wireless vibrator with 3 different ways to make vibrations. There are three different modes (Tease, Groove, and Club). Unlike some other wireless vibrators, there is a 20 minute window that the vibrator will stay on (waiting for the remote to tell it what to do). It takes about an hour and a half to charge the remote and toy (separately, as there is only one cord) and a full charge will last for about an hour of play.

To turn the toy on, start by pressing the single power button on the vibrator and holding for three seconds. It will give a small buzz and the power button will blink to indicate that it is on. Once on, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds on the remote. the vibrator will come to life. Press each again for 3 seconds to turn them off. The LED lights will shut off in both power buttons and the vibrator will give 3 short bursts of vibration to indicate being turned off.

The Modes

Tease – To activate Tease Mode, press the arrow button. The toy will vibrate as long as the button is being pressed. Hold the Tease button to keep a steady vibration. Let it go to make it come to a complete stop. You can see why this would be called tease mode.

Groove – The Groove Mode button is third button down, with the squiggles. There are 5 different vibration patterns, starting with a steady vibration. Press again to change vibration patterns.

Club – Lastly, the final button is the Club Mode, which is the button with the speaker Icon. Club Mode picks up on voice and other sounds (particularly music). I had a blast placing the remote next to my speakers while listening to music. There are three levels of sensitivity to club mode, and cycling through them will increase/decrease the sensitivity. There is an LED light in the power button that will brighten as the sensitivity level increases.

This toy was a lot of fun to try out. Although the vibrations are too weak for me to really be able to get off, it is definitely a fun new staple to date night. I love to hand the remote to the boyfriend and let him take control through out the date. It is fairly quiet, so it would be hard to notice unless it was going  while in a room filled with silence. Unfortunately, the thong was way too small for me, though it could certainly fit “most.”

Thank you Good Vibes for letting me try this toy!

Product Review – Quad Silicone Whip

The Quad Silicone Whip was one of those things that I saw and had to have. I had never heard of it until I saw it in a list of available toys to review. I had been curious about getting something for whipping and trying it out with the boyfriend, and also it had been a while since I got a new dildo. The Quad Silicone Whip is a two in one, with a dildo handled silicone whip. The perfect two in one. I received this toy free from Good Vibes in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

The Whipping End

The whip is made with four silicone strands with small weights at each end. With  a light stroke there is not much to feel, which is good for a beginner like me. For the more experienced, a harder stroke is ideal. However, one thing that we did notice was that the weights at the end needed to make contact to really leave a sting. The handle is very comfortable to hold. I love the feel of the soft silicone and the ridges make nice grips.

The Dildo End

The dildo is made of velvety soft silicone. There is not a whole lot of squish to it (though there is some) and it is not very flexible. There is a hint of a flared base, but I would not recommend this toy as anal safe due to the fact that there is such a small degree of flare (a lot less than toys that have a very prominent flared base).

All Together

From end to end, the Quad Silicone is 18 inches long. The insertable handle is 5 1/2 inches long, with the widest insertable diameter being 1 5/8 inches. Overall I feel like this is the perfect 2 in 1 toy. Thank you Good Vibes for letting me try this!

 

TMI Tuesday – Shame

Over the weekend I found these questions from Heelsnstocking in a very old email. The questions are great. I cannot believe they were not already published here on TMI Tuesday blog but my search did not find them. So here we go…Shame.

Shame

1. Tell us a sexual thing/fantasy would you never want your friends to know you like or have done?

I am still kind of embarrassed at my fetish/curiosity with pee. I may have mentioned it in a joking manor to test the waters with friends and potential partners, but they usually scoff in disgust so I play it safe and say I am joking.

2. Has anyone ever found an item of sexy underwear, a sex toy or perhaps a picture on your phone that embarrassed you?

Yes! On my 18th birthday I was home alone and was not allowed to go out or have friends over because my mom was out of town. I decided to spend my alone time masturbating. However, my friends decided to surprise me with pizza and cake. I couldn’t turn them away, so I let them in. Eventually they convinced me to leave the house to go to another friend’s house and one friend went to find and get my socks.

They found my socks, but not before finding my vibrator I had hastily thrown in my drawer when my unexpected company arrived. I was a little embarrassed, but that’s what they get for looking through my drawers.

3. Do you have any fantasies you could never go through with because you think you would feel ashamed?

Lately I have had a bit of a rape fantasy. I am terrified to touch on that one, even on here. I am unsure if I could ever play it out or even really write it out.

4. Have you ever felt shame after a sexual experience?

Pretty much every time I hooked up with Toby, back when I was first becoming sexually active. I always felt so used and alone after, yet kept letting him come back because curiosity got the best of me.

Bonus:  Share a recent non-sexual moment of shame.

Pretty much every time I make a small error at work during data entry.

Double Bonus: Share a recent sexual moment of shame.

The other night I took some boob pictures and sent them to the boyfriend. They went completely ignored, though he said he got them (when I asked a day later). Nothing else was said, no thanks, or please don’t send those again. I am a little hurt, and I have been building up to have a very serious talk with him.

Sinful Sunday – Orange Man

I am not really able to take a new picture at the moment, so I was browsing my Dropbox for an oldie (but a goodie) to use and I came across this picture. It was back when I worked in janitorial and I was in the maintenance office with my supervisor who was eating an orange. He made a funny little man out of the peel and I took a picture to make it last. I had forgotten about it until now.

 

Sinful Sunday

A Test of Sorts

The boyfriend is gone for nearly a month, and after this weekend he will be pretty much off the grid for almost 2 weeks. He is on his summer vacation, visiting family and friends down south. I miss him terribly, and it gets harder every day.

We still manage to at least say good morning, but after that he usually gets busy and either doesn’t talk again til late evening or the next morning. Some nights we were able to Skype and play video games, which is nice, but just not the same.

I have been kind of looking at his absence as a test for if/when he moves and whether or not we continue things as a long distance couple. At this point, I feel like I care more for him than he does for me, but that is probably my low self esteem talking. He has a hard time opening up, which also makes me wonder how he really feels about me.

Without knowing how he feels, or what he sees with me in the future, I don’t think I could do long distance. I really hate to say that, and I hate the idea of having to move on (again) and learn to know someone all over again (though sometimes that can be half the fun). I just don’t want anyone else.

Even with the lack of sex in our relationship that I am fairly unhappy about, I love everything else. I love him and really want to see where this goes. I have been trying to stay positive, but it gets harder each day that it gets closer to our possible doom.

Its two weeks into his month long absence and its killing me. I hate it. I miss his kiss, and our cuddles.

TMI Tuesday – Digging Deep

Yes, yes…here it is. Another TMI Tuesday.

Digging Deep

1. The last time you had sex, was it urgent or essential? Consider masturbation or sex with a partner.

Both. With a partner, it was urgent. I got him worked up by playing with and teasing his cock during a movie, as well as sucking on his fingers. The movie couldn’t finish fast enough. During masturbation, it was essential, and usually is with me.

2. What should you stop doing? Why?

I should stop being so insecure. I get anxious way too easily and tend to fret about little things. I need to learn to think positive and stay positive.

3. What makes you feel strongest? Sexiest?

This blog has helped make me strong, both with feedback, and a place I can share anything. Sadly, nothing has really made me feel sexy lately.

4. When do you feel vulnerable?

Dating. It gets harder and harder to put myself out there. I lucked out with my current boyfriend, as he took things slow, something that I needed.

5. What is missing from your sex life?

Sex itself, and intimacy. Something I miss greatly, but am willing to overlook their lack in my life because the companionship I am building now feels more important to me.

Bonus: If you left your current lover, what would you miss the most?

The companionship we have been building since we met. I am learning to trust again. I would miss the happy sound he makes when we kiss or I touch/rub/scratch his back. His kisses and cuddles are pretty amazing too.
