Product Review – Liberator Fascinator Throe

I have always been a squirter, but I tend to try to control it because I don’t like sleeping in my wet spot. Towels never helped to contain the mess, so I always longed for something waterproof to put down. That is why I was excited to review the Liberator Fascinator Throe for Betty’s Toy Box.

The Throe comes in many different colors, but I got the “Merlot” shade. It is 72″ x 54″, so it fits perfectly on my full size bed. One side is satin, the other side a soft, velvety microfiber. In between the two sides is a waterproof material, preventing any leaks from crossing one side or the other. Cleaning is made easy, as it is machine washable in cold water, separately or with dark colors and tumble dry low.

I made lots of use out of the Throe when I got it, and I plan to continue to do so for many years to come. (So many puns with that last sentence). When I first got it, my boyfriend and I put it to use immediately. We tried both sides, and found that having it velvet side down, satin side up to prevent slipping. The microfiber grabs onto surfaces better, whereas the satin made us go slipping and sliding when it was facing down.

At one point we used it as a blanket as we cuddled naked watching a movie. It was warm, using the microfiber side facing us. The only thing we noticed that was a little distracting was the loud crinkly sound it makes when being moved around a lot. It really didn’t bother us that much though.

Overall, the Liberator Fascinator Throe is a great investment. It is soft, durable, easy clean, and keeps other surface clean, and it blends in well with other blankets for when discretion is necessary. Thank you so much to Betty’s Toy Box for letting me review one! It will definitely be used all of the time.

Product Review – Je Joue Bullet and Wicked Aqua Lube

Bullets have always been one of my favorite toys, ever since I started masturbating. I love bullets the most because they tend to have the most pinpoint and rumbly vibrations. That is why I was eager to try the new Je Joue Classic Bullet, one of the three new designs by Je Joue. They also have a G-Spot bullet and a rabbit ear style. I was sent the Classic Bulllet and Wicked Aqua lube free in exchange for my honest review from Betty’s Toy Box.

Je Joue Classic Bullet

The Je Joue Classic Bullet did not disappoint. It felt just like Mimi, only more pinpoint. I (and my boyfriend) found it very easy to hold and direct where it was desired. There are three buttons to work the bullet; (+)/(-) for speed increases/decreases, and (O) for power on/off and patterns. There are five steady speeds and 7 patterns.

Like most all toys that I own, I tend to ignore the patterns and go straight for the highest speed. Some bullets tend to switch from rumbly to buzzy when at the highest speed, but the Classic Bullet did not; It stayed rumbly all through my use of it. I would definitely say that it is comparable to my beloved Tango. One thing that makes it better than Tango though? The battery life. One hour of charging gets you about an hour and a half of play, depending on the settings you use. To charge, just flip the cover at the  base and insert the USB cord. All of the bullets are waterproof.

The Bullet(s) come with a user manual and USB charging cord in a very pretty maroon feather designed box. However, the Classic Bullet also comes with a finger sleeve. The sleeve is supposed to give a hands-free feel, but I found it hindered the direct stimulation that I require. The bullets and the sleeve are made of medical grade silicone, so it is recommended to use a water based lube with these toys.

Wicked Aqua Lube

I will fully admit that I have never really felt that I needed extra lube. I never had a problem with personal lubrication, but I have plenty of toys that feel better with lube. That is why I was happy to add a lubricant to my review of the above bullet. I chose the Wicked Aqua, a water based lube by Wicked.

The lube is paraben free, glycerin free, and fragrance free. Even though it is water based, I found the lube thick and easy to reactivate with water. It is not sticky, and it leaves a clean and silky soft feel on the skin. I also kind of  really love that it comes in a pump/squirt bottle rather than a screw or pop cap of some sort, as the latter can get very messy. The bottle is 2 ounces, but a little bit goes a long way, especially since I consider the bottle fairly large nonetheless. There is also a 4 ounce option available.

Overall

Over all, I loved The Classic Bullet and Wicked Aqua. They worked especially well together. The bullet is quiet, strong, and rumbly. I would give it an easy 4 out of 5 stars, The lube is slick (as lube should be), is paraben free, and glycerin free. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for such a lovely combination to review!

 

Product Review – We-Vibe Wish

I wanted the We-Vibe Wish from the first time I saw it. I had read the mixed reviews, but still wanted to form my own opinion of it. That is why I jumped at the chance to review one for Betty’s Toy Box. I received this toy free in exchange for my honest review.

The Packaging

The Wish comes in a pretty box with a matching color watercolor background. As with all We-Vibe toys, the Wish comes with a satin carrying pouch, charging cord, and instruction guide booklet.

The Toy

The Wish is a beautiful toy. It fits nicely in my hand and against my vulva (or anywhere else you want to lay it against). It is the prettiest shade of sky blue, waterproof, soft and squishy, and it had so much potential. I will try to refrain from making too many puns about the name.

The Wish is great in theory, as it has two motors, creating a “PowerPulse” technology. Unfortunately, the two motors just were not my cup of tea. Personally, I am not a fan of patterned vibrations. I like steady vibrations, usually on the highest speed available. The two motors and the PowerPulse pattern they create feel like a pattern more than just a steady vibration. The best way I can describe how patterns make me feel is “distracting.” The Wish is very distracting, as one motor will kind of skip if too much pressure is applied against the toy. The Wish charges via magnet, and an hour and a half charge will give up to 2 two hours of play.

There are 10 premade settings for the Wish, but using the app will enable you to create your own patterns. The Wish can be turned on by holding down the only button on the toy. To change vibration patterns, press the button again until you find one that you like. To turn it off, hold the button for a few seconds again. When you turn it back on, the toy will start at the setting it was turned off at.

The App

You can download the “We-Connect” app on your android or iPhone to control the toy via BlueTooth. I had been having trouble with the app, as it has been a bit buggy, but it seemed better this time around. With the app, you can manually choose your patterns, make your own, and even connect via Wi-Fi to a partner that has the app. Your partner can then control the toy, making their own patterns or using the pre-made ones. There is also a video chat, voice chat, and text chat feature that feels cleaner than Skype.

Overall

Overall, this is a great toy if you like patterns. I personally do not like patterns in vibrators, so I am sad to say that it was not for me. I wish it was not so. The two motors make it sound like it has potential, but unfortunately they do not feel synced and become quite distracting. The Wish is fairly quiet, which is a big plus. I honestly do not want to give up on this toy just yet, and will definitely keep trying it. I will update this review if I can get it to work for me. It is a beautiful toy. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for giving me the chance to try it. For now, I will give it 2 out of 5 stars.

 

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 – We-Vibe Touch

I long lusted after the We-Vibe Touch. It looked so pretty, I heard fantastic things about it, and the little spoon like shape on the end called to me. I was fortunate enough to receive it free in exchange for my honest review from Betty’s Toy Box.

Upon opening, I was enamored at the soft and velvety silicone of the Touch. I took it out of the box and noticed how squishy it was. I couldn’t wait to use it. I immediately got it on the charger to make sure it would be ready for use. The We-Vibe Touch comes with a satin storage bag, magnetic charging port, and a USB cord.I found that it takes about an hour and a half to fully charge and it has about 2 hours of life, depending on how high the speed is turned up.

To be completely honest, I was a little underwhelmed when I first started using the Touch. It felt really nice, but it just couldn’t get me there. I kept wishing it went up one more speed. The next day I woke up and wanted to try again. I liked it a little more, but I needed something a fraction stronger to get me over the edge. I was determined to make things happen with this toy. With some relaxation and concentration, I was able to have a very nice orgasm from this toy after my third try. Third time is the charm, right?.After that, it has become fairly easy to have an orgasm form this toy.

The Touch has 8 functions total. There are 4 steady vibration speeds and 4 patterns. Unfortunately there is only one button used for power on/off and changing speeds/patterns. If you pass your favorite you have to cycle through everything to get back to it. However, if you are like me and only use one speed or function, you will be happy to know that the Touch turns on at the same setting it was turned off at.

Compared to the We-Vibe Tango, the Touch wins when it comes to battery life. However, the Tango does have that one extra speed that can get me there just a tad bit faster. They take about the same amount of time to charge, but the magnetic connection is a bit more stable than the Tango.

Overall, I love the We-Vibe Touch. I do wish it was a fraction stronger, but that doesn’t stop it from getting the job done. It is quiet and rumbly, a must have for my vibrators. It is made from beautiful, soft silicone and is comfortable to hold and use. I would give this toy a strong 4/5 stars and will definitely adding it to my list of favorites as well as keeping it with my go to favorites. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for this awesome toy!

 

Product Review – Vedo Bam Bullet

I have always loved Bullet style vibrators. They are small, easy to hold, usually fairly quiet, and tend to get that perfect pinpoint stimulation that I absolutely love and desire. We-Vibe Tango was one of my favorite bullet vibes, so when Betty’s Toy Box offered to let my try the Vedo Bam bullet because it was similar to Tango, I couldn’t resist. I received the Vedo Bam Bullet free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Vedo Bam Bullet is many things. It is rechargeable, waterproof, and powerful. I would definitely have to agree that it is similar to Tango. The Vedo Bam is covered in velvety smooth silicone. It operates with one button. Hold the button to turn on and off, and press  to cycle through the different speeds and patterns. I can see how that could get annoying to someone who doesn’t want to flip through every single cycle to get to the setting they like, especially if they accidentally pass the one they want and have to cycle through again.

Personally though, I tend to prefer the highest steady vibration setting, One of the many things I love about the Vedo Bam Bullet is that it remembers the setting you turned it off at. So, instead of having to cycle through low to high, patterned to steady vibrations, I have it exactly where I want it. Vedo Bam is rumbly, but a tad buzzier than the Tango. It is not too buzzy to fail at getting the job done though; It gets the job done very efficiently.

For the punch that the Vedo Bam packs, it is very reasonably priced. It is extremely quiet, and with ten different vibration modes, it is quite a deal. Click on over to Betty’s Toy Box and treat yourself to a Vedo Bam. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for giving me a chance to review this awesome toy! It is definitely added to my go to favorites.
